Resolving Disputes

In the event that there is a dispute between you and Novant Health relating to Novant Health text messaging communications, arising out of any matter, including in connection with any federal or state statutory provision or the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, such dispute will be determined by arbitration in North Carolina before one arbitrator.  The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association.  The arbitrator will apply the substantive law of the State of North Carolina, exclusive of its choice of law rules.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, each of the parties agrees that any proceeding will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action.  If for any reason a dispute proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, each party knowingly and irrevocably waives any right to trial by jury.  The arbitrator will deliver a reasoned written decision with respect to the dispute.  The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties and will not be subject to appeal or review.  The parties acknowledge that this agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in this paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, this arbitration agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1, et seq.

Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Message and data rates may apply for any messages sent to you from us and to us from you. Message frequency may vary.
