Attn: Guest Relations Manager

Scottsdale, AZ 85255
If, however, there is any remaining issue that needs to be resolved, these Terms describe how both of us will proceed:
YOU AND P.F. CHANG’S AGREE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW THAT THE EXCLUSIVE MEANS OF RESOLVING ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES IS BINDING ARBITRATION. INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, YOU AND P.F. CHANG’S EACH AGREE TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES ON A BILATERAL (INDIVIDUAL) BASIS PURSUANT TO THE JAMS ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES WITHOUT CLASS RELIEF, EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES PERTAINING TO P.F. CHANG’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS; STATUTORY CLAIMS THAT PURSUANT TO LAW ARE NOT ARBITRABLE; INDEMNIFICATION; CONTRIBUTION; INTERPLEADER; OR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF ARISING OUT OF A CLAIM. This arbitration provision is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes arbitrable claims based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory (“Claims”). The arbitrator’s decision and award are final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq., and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
Jury Trial Waiver
YOU AND P.F. CHANG’S EACH VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN RESOLVING ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN US ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES.
Class Action Waiver
Any arbitration under these Terms shall be conducted by a single arbitrator who shall have no authority to award class-wide relief. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms specifically prohibit you from commencing any legal proceedings as a representative of others or joining in any arbitration proceedings brought by any other person, acting as a private attorney general, or joining or consolidating Claims with claims or proceedings brought by any other person (“Class Action Waiver”).
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the Claim and setting forth the specific relief sought. All notices to P.F. Chang’s shall be sent to the following address: P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc., 8377 East Hartford Drive, 2nd Floor, Scottsdale, AZ 85255. All notices to you will be sent to the email provided in your account. Upon receipt of such notice, the other party shall have a sixty (60) day period in which it may satisfy the Claim against it by fully curing the Claim and/or providing all the relief requested in the notice, and/or entering into a settlement to resolve the Claim to the mutual satisfaction of the parties. After the expiration of such sixty-day cure period, you or P.F. Chang’s may commence an arbitration proceeding. Unless otherwise agreed to by you and P.F. Chang’s in writing, the arbitration of any Claim under these Terms shall be referred to JAMS under its rules and procedures, be decided before a single arbitrator with substantial experience in the internet industry, and will follow substantive law in adjudicating the dispute, except that this Section will be construed as a written agreement to arbitrate pursuant to the FAA. You and P.F. Chang’s agree that this Section satisfies the writing requirement of the FAA. The JAMS rules are available on its website at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration of any Claim shall be conducted in the State of Arizona, and for any non-frivolous Claim that does not exceed $10,000, P.F. Chang’s will: (1) pay all costs of the arbitration; (2) if you prefer, will conduct the arbitration by telephone; and (3) will not seek attorneys’ fees in the event P.F. Chang’s prevails. Each party shall pay the fees and costs of its own counsel, experts and witnesses. To the extent this dispute resolution section conflicts with JAMS minimum standards for procedural fairness, the JAMS rules and/or minimum standards for arbitration procedures in that regard will control. Neither party shall sue the other party other than as provided herein or for enforcement of this clause or for the arbitrator’s award; and any such suit may be brought only in Federal District Court or, if any such court lacks jurisdiction, in any state court that has jurisdiction. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, or enforceability of these Terms including any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence shall not apply to the clause entitled “Class Action Waiver.”
All parties, including related third parties, shall retain the right to seek adjudication in a small claims tribunal for disputes within the scope of such tribunal’s jurisdiction. Any dispute that cannot be adjudicated within the jurisdiction of a small claims tribunal shall be resolved by binding arbitration, with the exception of any Claim or action for indemnification, contribution, interpleader, or injunctive relief arising out of a Claim, which Claims or actions shall not be subject to arbitration. Any appeal of a judgment from a small claims tribunal shall be resolved by binding arbitration.
Choice of Law
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against P.F. Chang’s (except for small claims actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts of Arizona. You hereby consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
Resolution of Disputes for Non-U.S. Residents
If any controversy, allegation, or Claim (including any non-contractual Claim) arises out of or relates to the Services or Terms and you are a non-U.S. resident, then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us, but if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section. Your notice to us must be sent to P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc., 8377 East Hartford Drive, 2nd Floor, Scottsdale, AZ 85255. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, P.F. Chang’s and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith, though nothing will require either you or P.F. Chang’s to resolve the dispute on terms either you or P.F. Chang’s, in each of our sole discretion, deem unsatisfactory. Nothing in this Section will prevent a party from pursuing their Claim in court or another complaint process.
If these Terms expire or are terminated for any reason, the provisions which by their nature should continue after termination such as P.F. Chang’s Rights, Legal Notices, Resolution of Disputes, and General, shall survive any such expiration or termination.
If any provision of these Terms is declared or found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be unlawful, unenforceable or void, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent that it is found unlawful, unenforceable or void, and the remainder of the provision and all other provisions will remain fully enforceable, except that if the Class Action Waiver for any Claim cannot be enforced, then the provision to arbitrate will not apply.
No Third-Party Beneficiaries
You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, there are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
