5) EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, MEUS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER REGARDING THE SYSTEM. MEUS DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ALL WARRANTIES NOT EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN AND ALL REMEDIES WHICH, BUT FOR THIS PROVISION, MIGHT ARISE BY IMPLICATION OR OPERATION OF LAW, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, AND OF FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

7) SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON WARRANTIES OR EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATION OF DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY.
8) DISPUTE RESOLUTION. For any dispute with MEUS, you agree to first contact us by phone (800-433-4822) or e-mail (CustomerCare@hvac.mea.com (link sends e-mail)) or U.S. Mail at Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., ATTN: Customer Care, 1340 Satellite Blvd., Suwanee, GA 30024, and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally by providing your name, address, and contact information and describing the nature of the dispute. In the unlikely event that MEUS has not been able to resolve a dispute with you within 60 days of your original informal claim (or sooner if, in MEUS’s opinion, a dispute is not likely to be resolved within 60 days), we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Limited Warranty, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration before an arbitrator from Judicial Mediation and Arbitration Services (“JAMS”) located in Gwinnett County, Georgia. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com (link is external) and will require you to pay an initial filing fee set by JAMS (unless you successfully apply for a waiver of this fee from JAMS). All other JAMS costs associated with the arbitration will be borne by MEUS. The arbitration will be conducted in Gwinnett County, Georgia, unless you request an in-person hearing where you live, or if you and MEUS agree otherwise. If the arbitrator decides in your favor, the award may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorneys’ fees and your reasonable costs for any expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator makes an award in your favor greater than MEUS’s last written offer, MEUS will pay you the greater of the award or $500, plus your reasonable attorney’s fees, if any, and reimburse any reasonable expenses (including reasonable expert witness fees and costs) that are reasonably accrued for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration, as determined by the arbitrator or as agreed to by you and MEUS. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may sue under state law in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but you must engage in arbitration before suing under the Federal Magnuson-Moss Act.
9) All claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration unless such arbitration is necessary to effectuate the enforcement of the court class action waiver or in the event that class arbitration is expressly agreed to by MEUS. You agree that you and MEUS are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
10) You may opt-out of the foregoing arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision of this Limited Warranty by notifying MEUS in writing within 30 days of purchase. Such written notification must be sent to Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., ATTN: Legal, 5900-A Katella Avenue, Cypress, CA 90630, and must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) your warranted product’s serial number, and (4) a clear statement indicating that you do not wish to resolve disputes through arbitration and demonstrating compliance with the 30-day time limit to opt-out.
11) If any clause herein is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Limited Warranty and the remainder of the Limited Warranty will be given full force and effect. As noted above, if a class action waiver of both court and arbitration class actions is found unenforceable, class arbitration will be expressly allowed under the Limited Warranty.
12) Residents of California and Quebec do not need to register the product in order to get all of the rights and remedies of registered original owners under this warranty.
13) This Limited Warranty gives the original owner specific legal rights and the original owner may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
14) This Limited Warranty is valid only in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii, and it is not transferable.
