ARBITRATION OF CLAIMS
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
At SWA, we expect that our world-class customer service team will be able to resolve most issues you may have using the SWA Services. In the unlikely event that we do not meet your satisfaction, we prefer to specify now what each of us should expect in order to avoid any confusion later. Accordingly, you and SWA agree to the following resolution process.
Because we prefer to resolve our issues with you directly, you agree to arbitrate with SWA only in your individual capacity, not as a representative or member of a class. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there shall be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or brought by a purported class representative.
The arbitration hearings will be held in Kankakee County, Illinois.
The arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Regardless of how the arbitrator rules, each party is responsible for its own attorneys’ fees and costs.
Since we always prefer to find ways to satisfy you as quickly and efficiently as possible, before initiating any arbitration proceeding, you agree to first discuss the matter informally with SWA for at least 30 days. To do that, please send your full name and contact information, your concern, and your proposed solution by mail to us at: 185 E. North St., Bradley, IL, 60915.
International Use. We are a company based in the United States. SWA’s goal is to bring you as much Content as is legally available. That said, we are limited by the rights that our content licensors grant to us. Using technologies to access the Content from territories where SWA does not have rights or does not offer services is prohibited. SWA Premium is not accessible through any devices from outside the United States.
