17. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
NU SKIN BRAND AFFILIATES PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
17.1 What is Mandatory Arbitration. In order to expedite the resolution of all Disputes (as such term is defined below), Nu Skin has instituted a mandatory arbitration procedure between it and its Nu Skin Brand Affiliates. Arbitration involves the referral of a Dispute to an impartial third party known as an arbitrator for hearing and decision. The arbitrator acts as a private judge, considers the parties’ evidence, and renders a binding decision in the form of an arbitration award. The arbitrator’s award is a final ruling, and judgment on the award may be entered by a court of law. The object of arbitration is the final resolution of Disputes in a quicker, more private, and less formal manner than ordinary court proceedings.
17.2 Arbitration is Mandatory and Binding as to All Disputes. IF YOU ARE A NU SKIN BRAND AFFILIATE, YOU AND NU SKIN AGREE THAT MANDATORY AND BINDING ARBITRATION IS THE SOLE MEANS TO DECIDE ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED FOR HEREIN. BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU AND NU SKIN WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO ANY JURY OR COURT TRIALS FOR THE RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES AND AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATION AWARD IS FINAL AND THAT A JUDGMENT MAY BE ENTERED BY A COURT ON THE AWARD.
17.3 Definition of a “Dispute.” A “DISPUTE” MEANS ANY AND ALL PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE CLAIMS, DISPUTES, CONTROVERSIES, CAUSES OF ACTION, OR COMPLAINTS, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, LAW, PRODUCT LIABILITY, EQUITY, OR ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION, (I) ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR ANY ALLEGED BREACH THEREOF, THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ALL OR PART OF THE NU SKIN SERVICES, OR THE USE OF OR THE INABILITY TO USE ALL OR PART OF THE NU SKIN SERVICES BY ANY OF YOUR CUSTOMERS, BRAND AFFILIATES IN YOUR DOWNLINE OR UPLINE, OR THE CUSTOMERS OF BRAND AFFILIATES IN YOUR DOWNLINE OR UPLINE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY AND ALL SUCH CLAIMS, DISPUTES, CONTROVERSIES, CAUSES OF ACTION, OR COMPLAINTS BETWEEN YOU AND ANY OF THE NU SKIN PARTIES (AS SUCH TERM IS DEFINED BELOW), BETWEEN YOU AND ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER OF ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE NU SKIN SERVICES (EACH, A “THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER”) (EACH SUCH THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER SHALL BE A THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY OF THIS SECTION 17, ARBITRATION AGREEMENT), BETWEEN YOU, ANY OF THE NU SKIN PARTIES, AND ANY OF NU SKIN’S THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS, BETWEEN YOU AND ANOTHER NU SKIN BRAND AFFILIATE (WHO SHALL BE A THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY OF THIS SECTION 17, ARBITRATION AGREEMENT), BETWEEN YOU, ANY OF THE NU SKIN PARTIES, AND ANOTHER NU SKIN BRAND AFFILIATE, OR BETWEEN YOU, ANY OF THE NU SKIN PARTIES, ANOTHER NU SKIN BRAND AFFILIATE, AND ANY OF NU SKIN’S THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS, OR (II) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE INTERPRETATION OR ENFORCEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THESE TERMS. The “Nu Skin Parties” shall mean Nu Skin, Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc., Nu Skin Enterprises United States, Inc., and their respective parents, subsidiaries, and otherwise affiliated entities. Each of Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc., Nu Skin Enterprises United States, Inc., and their respective parents, subsidiaries, and otherwise affiliated entities, as well as the parents, subsidiaries, and otherwise affiliated entities of Nu Skin, shall be a third-party beneficiary of this Section 17, Arbitration Agreement. Nothing in this definition of “Dispute” is intended to, nor shall it be interpreted to, permit adjudication of any Dispute as a class action.
17.4 Mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process whereby a neutral third party known as a mediator attempts to resolve a Dispute between contending parties. The object of the mediator is to increase the parties’ mutual understanding of the Dispute, persuade them to adjust their positions towards each other, and hopefully resolve the Dispute through agreement by the parties. If all parties to the Dispute agree to mediation, then Nu Skin will facilitate a mediation to be held in Salt Lake City, State of Utah, at the offices of Nu Skin’s outside counsel. The mediation will be conducted in the English language. All fees and costs of the mediation will be borne equally by the parties to the mediation. If not all parties to the Dispute agree to the mediation, or any agreed-to mediation is not successful, then the Dispute will be submitted to arbitration as provided in this Section 17.
17.5 Arbitrating Parties. All parties that will participate in the arbitration, including you (a Nu Skin Brand Affiliate), the Nu Skin Parties, another Nu Skin Brand Affiliate, or Nu Skin’s Third-Party Providers, are referred to as “Arbitrating Parties” in this Section 17.
17.6 Arbitration Procedure.
17.6.1 AAA Arbitration, Arbitration Seat, and Arbitration Location. All Disputes not resolved by mediation shall be settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), or its designated successor, in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any state or federal court located in Salt Lake County, State of Utah, having jurisdiction. Salt Lake County, State of Utah, shall be the place and seat of the arbitration, and the state and federal courts located in Salt Lake County, State of Utah, shall have exclusive venue of any matters relating to the arbitration, including without limitation deciding petitions and motions to compel arbitration and confirming, modifying, or vacating the arbitration award. You and Nu Skin consent to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court located in Salt Lake County, State of Utah, to adjudicate such matters relating to the arbitration and waive any objection to improper venue. The proceedings will be held before a single arbitrator, who will render a final and binding decision. The arbitration hearing will be held in the Salt Lake City, Utah, offices of Nu Skin’s outside counsel.
17.6.2 Agreed Modifications to the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules (“CAR”). Section 17.6.1 and the following subsections of this Section 17.6.2 shall govern the arbitration proceedings notwithstanding anything in the CAR to the contrary.
220.127.116.11 Procedural Rules. Unless the Arbitrating Parties otherwise agree after the Dispute arises, neither the “Expedited Procedures” of the CAR nor the “Procedures for Large, Complex Commercial Disputes” of the CAR shall apply to the arbitration.
18.104.22.168 When an Arbitration Claim May Be Made. A claim made in a demand for arbitration or a counterclaim or crossclaim asserted in arbitration (collectively, an “Arbitration Claim”) shall in no event be made after the date when the institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on the Arbitration Claim would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations, statute of repose, or contractual limitation on the assertion of claims. For purposes of applicable statutes of limitation, statutes of response, and contractual limitations on the assertion of claims, receipt by the AAA of an Arbitration Claim shall constitute the institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on the Arbitration Claim.
22.214.171.124 Selection of Single Arbitrator. The arbitration proceedings will be held before a single arbitrator. Before the procedures of the CAR for the selection of an arbitrator are commenced by the AAA, the Arbitrating Parties shall have not less than fifteen (15) calendar days after filing of the initial demand for arbitration, the initial counterclaim (if any), and initial crossclaim (if any) to mutually agree upon the appointment of the arbitrator.
126.96.36.199 Consolidation of Arbitrations. The Arbitrating Parties agree that a court with jurisdiction may on the petition of Nu Skin (but not any other Arbitrating Party) (a) consolidate separate arbitration proceedings to which any of the Nu Skin Parties is a party as to all or some claims if there are separate agreements to arbitrate or separate arbitration proceedings between the same parties, and (b) consolidate separate arbitration proceedings as to all or some claims if any of the Nu Skin Parties is a party to a separate agreement to arbitrate or a separate arbitration proceeding with a third party when (1) the claims subject to the agreements to arbitrate arise in substantial part from the same transaction or series of related transactions or the Nu Skin business, (2) the existence of a common issue of fact or law creates a possibility of conflicting decisions in the separate arbitration proceedings, and (3) the prejudice resulting from a failure to consolidate is not outweighed by the risk of undue delay or prejudice to the rights of, or hardship to, parties opposing consolidation. The Arbitrating Parties agree that there shall be no other consolidations of separate arbitration proceedings.
188.8.131.52 Discovery. The arbitrator will have the discretion to order a pre-arbitration exchange of information by the Arbitrating Parties, including but not limited to the production of documents supporting an Arbitrating Party’s claims or defenses, the production of requested documents, the identification of proposed witnesses and summaries of their expected testimony, the production of reports of expert witnesses expected to testify at the arbitration hearing, and the depositions of witnesses and Arbitrating Parties. Additionally, subject to the arbitrator’s discretion, the Arbitrating Parties may submit a pre-arbitration brief outlining the legal causes of action, factual background, and argument of positions.
184.108.40.206 Presentation of Evidence. The arbitrator shall allow the presentation of evidence at the arbitration hearing by Affidavit and/or Declaration of a witness, despite the absence of the opportunity by the opposing parties to cross-examine the witness, but the arbitrator may reduce the weight that the arbitrator gives to such evidence. The arbitrator shall allow the presentation of testimony of witnesses at the arbitration hearing by deposition or by video deposition that was taken under circumstances that allowed for cross-examination of the witness even if the witness is available to attend the arbitration hearing and subject to the subpoena power of the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall allow the presentation of testimony of witnesses at the arbitration hearing via live video platforms, and such witnesses shall be subject to cross-examination via the same live video platform.
220.127.116.11 Dispositive Motions. The arbitrator shall grant motions dispositive of some or all claims of an Arbitrating Party only when there is no dispute as to any facts material to the disposition and the disposition can be made as a matter of law.
18.104.22.168 Date of Arbitration. Unless all Arbitrating Parties agree otherwise, or a court with jurisdiction orders otherwise on the petition of one of the Arbitrating Parties for good cause, the arbitration will take place within six (6) months after the Arbitration Claim is filed.
22.214.171.124 Date of the Award. On the petition of an Arbitrating Party for good cause, a court with jurisdiction may extend the time for the arbitrator to issue an award following the close of the arbitration hearing, and such order may be issued before or after the expiration of the time for the issuance of the award.
126.96.36.199 Reasoned Award. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned award.
188.8.131.52 Language. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language, but at the request and expense of the requesting Arbitrating Party, documents and testimonies will be translated into the requesting Arbitrating Party’s language.
184.108.40.206 No Class Actions. No Dispute will be adjudicated, in arbitration or any other judicial proceeding, as a class action.
220.127.116.11 Permitted Attendees. Each Arbitrating Party in the arbitration is limited to the attendance of the Arbitrating Party and, with respect to you and your Brand Affiliate account, those individuals appearing on your Brand Affiliate account with Nu Skin. In addition, each Arbitrating Party is limited to no more than three attorneys.
18.104.22.168 Fees and Expenses of Arbitrator. All fees and expenses of the arbitrator will be borne equally by the Arbitrating Parties in the arbitration, subject to allocation in the final award.
17.6.3 Arbitration Awards.
(a) The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding. It will be a full resolution of all existing claims and disputes between the Arbitrating Parties in the arbitration. Judgment upon any arbitration award may be entered by any state or federal court with jurisdiction located within Salt Lake County, the State of Utah. The binding and preclusive effect of any arbitration award will be limited to the actual Dispute and Arbitration Claim arbitrated, and to the Arbitrating Parties, and will have no collateral effect on any other disputes or claims of any kind.
(b) The arbitrator’s decision will be in writing and based on the application of the strict rules of law to the evidence submitted in the arbitration. In addition to an award for monetary damages incurred, the arbitrator may also award a prevailing Arbitrating Party the costs and expenses of the proceeding, including but not limited to arbitration fees and reasonable attorney’s fees. However, punitive damage awards are not allowed. NEITHER AN ARBITRATING PARTY, NOR NU SKIN, NOR A NU SKIN THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER, NOR ANY OF NU SKIN’S OR NU SKIN’S THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS’ PARENT, SUBSIDIARY, RELATED OR AFFILIATED ENTITIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, INVESTORS, OR VENDORS, WILL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF FUTURE REVENUE OR INCOME, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS REPUTATION OR OPPORTUNITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY BREACH OR ALLEGED BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THESE TERMS, OR FOR ANY ACT, OMMISSION, OR OTHER CONDUCT ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE NU SKIN SERVICES, AN ARBITRATING PARTY’S STATUS AS AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AND BRAND AFFILIATE OF NU SKIN’S PRODUCTS, OR A THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER’S STATUS AS A THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER OF SERVICES TO YOU OR TO NU SKIN.
(c) This Agreement contains a limitation of liability in Section 15. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award damages against the Nu Skin Related Parties (defined in Section 15) such that the entire aggregate liability of the Nu Skin Related Parties exceeds the agreed limitation on liability of the Nu Skin Related Parties set forth in Section 15 of this Agreement.
17.6.4 Confidentiality. All arbitration proceedings will be private and closed to the public, and the documents, pleadings, and testimony produced in the proceedings shall be kept confidential. Except as may be required by law, and the use of the arbitration award to procure or to oppose the entry of a judgment on the arbitration award by a court of law or to appeal or enforce a judgment entered on the arbitration award, neither an Arbitrating Party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration proceeding without the prior written consent of all the Arbitrating Parties.
17.6.5 Enforcement of Judgment Entered on Arbitration Award; Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding this arbitration agreement, any Arbitrating Party may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Utah, or in any other jurisdiction as necessary to enforce a judgment entered on an arbitration award or injunctive relief granted by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction regarding an arbitration under this arbitration agreement. Notwithstanding this arbitration agreement, any Arbitrating Party may apply to a federal or state court with competent jurisdiction located in Salt Lake County, State of Utah, (i) to seek a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, other injunctive relief, or an order compelling arbitration; or, (ii) in an action brought by Nu Skin or its Third-Party Providers, to enforce their respective trademarks, patents, copyrights, or other intellectual property. The institution of any action in a court for equitable relief, to enforce an arbitration award or order or to enforce a judgment entered on an arbitration award or order, will not constitute a waiver of the obligation of any Arbitrating Party to submit any Dispute to arbitration.
17.6.6 Survival. This agreement to arbitrate will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement, these Terms, or your Nu Skin Brand Affiliate account.
