Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and us in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and
You and we further agree that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this
arbitration provision. 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
access to, or use of, the Sites or Services, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or
any other legal theory, and regardless of when the claim arises. The arbitrator also has exclusive authority to
resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU AND VALASSIS DIGITAL ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. YOU ALSO
UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION RELATING TO ANY ACTION OR
deemed to waive, preclude or otherwise limit the right of either of us to: (a) bring an individual action in small
claims court within its jurisdictional limits; (b) file a complaint with the applicable federal, state, or local
agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to
file a suit in a court of law solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of our services or
address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and Valassis Digital will be governed by the FAA, the Commercial Dispute Resolution
Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the
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 Valassis Digital at ValDigital-Privacy@valassis.com.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other by certified
mail (“Notice”). Valassis Digital’s address for Notice is: Valassis Communications, Inc., 19975 Victor Parkway,
Livonia, MI 48152, Attention: Legal Department. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or
dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). You and Valassis Digital agree to use good faith
efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if you and Valassis Digital do not reach an agreement to do so within 30
days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. The arbitration proceedings,
including any exchanged materials, shall be confidential and you and Valassis Digital agree to use reasonable
efforts to streamline the proceedings, including discovery, consistent with the objectives of efficient dispute
Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Michigan, but if the claim is for
$10,000 or less, or as otherwise required, 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 registered account address.
Regardless of the manner in which 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 fourteen (14) days of the
arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
YOU AND VALASSIS DIGITAL AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL
CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Further, unless both you and Valassis Digital agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one
person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If Valassis Digital
makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to its address for Notice), you may
reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Valassis Digital’s address for

provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, will survive. If any provision of this
