That's seems both procedurally and substantively unconscionable. It is procedurally unconscionable because there is no explanation to the customer or certainty on any part that the customer understands and agrees to the provision - this will clearly have the effect of surprising the customer. It is substantively unconscionable at the very least because of the onesidedness of the provision. Under Armendariz, arbitration agreements require at least a modicum of bilaterality.


Mandatory binding arbitration is very realyable and useful.
