1. INTRODUCTION AND ELIGIBILITY
This agreement is a legally binding contract. It may change as our business changes, and you agree you will review it and any updates regularly. Your continued use of our Services means you accept any changes to these Terms.
These Terms provide that all disputes between you and Dosch & Marshall Real Estate LLC (“DMRE”, “Company”, “we”, or “us”) relating to these Terms or your use of the Services will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under these Terms, except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury, and your claims cannot be brought as a class action. Please review Section XI (“Arbitration, Class Waiver, and Waiver of Jury Trial”) for the details regarding your agreement to arbitrate any disputes with Company.

We may revise these Terms at any time by posting an updated version; provided, however, that we will endeavor to provide you with prior notice of any material changes to these Terms. You should visit this page periodically to review the most current Terms, because you are bound by them. Your continued use of the Service after a change to these Terms constitutes your binding acceptance of these Terms.

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Company concerning your use of the Services. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. The section titles and annotations in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
ARBITRATION, CLASS WAIVER, AND WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL
We are headquartered in Texas, so all disputes must be resolved there. We will use arbitration to resolve any problems, and you cannot join a class action lawsuit or obtain a jury trial for any disputes you have with us related to your use of our Services.
a) Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Company in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and Company agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to these Terms or your use of the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms or your use of the Site or Products, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
b) Exceptions. Despite the provisions of the Section entitled “Generally” directly above, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to:
a. bring an individual action in small claims court;
b. pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available;
c. seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or
d. to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
c) Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and the Company will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Company. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
d) Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail or email (“Notice”). The Company’s address for Notice is: 14951 Dallas Parkway Suite 400, Dallas, TX 75254 or email@example.com. The Notice must:
a. describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and
b. set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or the Company must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Company will pay you the highest of the following:
i. the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any;
ii. the last written settlement amount offered by the Company in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or
e) Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, Company will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Texas, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted:
a. solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator;
b. through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or
c. by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Company for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the way the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
f) No Class Actions. YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and the Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
g) Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If Company makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Company’s address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Company’s address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and Company.
h) Enforceability. If the Section entitled “No Class Actions” is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 11 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 11 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described directly below will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Services.
i) Choice of Law; Venue. These Terms will be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, excluding its conflicts of law rules. If a lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, then you and Company agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located within Texas.
