18.GOVERNING LAW; VENUE
Any claim or dispute arising out of or related to these Terms and your use of our Site, products, or Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California, except to the extent preempted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
Any claim or dispute arising out of or related to these Terms and your use of our Site or Services that is not subject to arbitration shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Los Angeles County, California, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Los Angeles County, California.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
THIS SECTION INCLUDES AN OPT-OUT PROVISION SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO OPT OUT OF BINDING ARBITRATION YOU MUST FOLLOW THE SPECIFIC OPT-OUT REQUIREMENTS.
You and we agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions.
Notice of Dispute. Most disputes can be resolved without resorting to arbitration. In the event of a dispute, you agree to provide us notice of the dispute. This notice must provide a brief, written description of the dispute, the relief requested and the contact information of the party giving it. You must send any such notice to us by e-mail at email@example.com and by U.S. Mail to: Blush Design, Inc., 340 S. Lemon Ave. #8250, Walnut, California 91789. The parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with one another, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, disputes concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Site, Products, or Services shall not be subject to arbitration, and the notice and good faith negotiation required by this paragraph shall not apply to these types of disputes.
Binding Arbitration. Except as provided herein, if we cannot resolve a dispute informally, any dispute will be resolved only by binding arbitration. Any arbitration will be held in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules”) of JAMS then in effect, by one arbitrator who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. For more information on the Rules please visit: https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. You and we both agree that the arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. If our or your claim is solely for monetary relief of $10,000 or less and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, we both agree that the claim will be conducted, through a telephonic hearing under JAMS Rules, solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances, provided that if you are a consumer (as defined by JAMS), you may have a right to an in-person hearing in your hometown area. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by JAMS or by the arbitrator.
If you are a consumer (as defined under JAMS rules), remedies that would otherwise be available to you under applicable federal, state or local laws will remain available under this arbitration clause, unless you retain the right to pursue such remedies in court. As part of the arbitration, both you and we will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the claim. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction. For all purposes of these Terms you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state or federal courts located in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Los Angeles County, California. You and we both further agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court in Los Angeles County, California to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
If there is a conflict between the JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost. We shall also bear the cost of any arbitration fees, unless the arbitrator finds your claims, defenses, or other fee-generating activity to be asserted or conducted for an improper purpose or frivolous. You are responsible for all other additional costs that you may incur in the arbitration including, without limitation, attorney’s fees and expert witness costs unless we are specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law. The decision of the arbitrator will be in writing and binding and conclusive on both us and you, and judgment to enforce the decision may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. Both we and you agree that dispositive motions, including without limitation motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment, will be allowed in the arbitration. The arbitrator must follow these Terms and can award the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive or other equitable relief and attorney’s fees. Both we and you understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, we and you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. Both we and you further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
Opt-Out Right. You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the provisions requiring arbitration by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to Blush Design, Inc. by U.S. mail to Blush Design, Inc. d/b/a Bueno, Attn. Legal Department, 340 S. Lemon Ave. #8250, Walnut, California 91789. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of this Terms taking effect, or your account creation. If you do not opt out via this method, you will be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of this section. If you opt out of the provisions requiring arbitration, we will not be bound by them either. If any clause within this arbitration provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from this section, and the remainder of its provisions will be given full force and effect.
Survival. This Arbitration section shall survive any termination of the Services.
20.CLASS ACTION WAIVER
THIS SECTION AND THE PREVIOUS SECTION ONLY APPLIES TO YOU IF YOU ARE A UNITED STATES RESIDENT.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
You and we agree to resolve any dispute in an individual capacity, and not on behalf of, or as part of, any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding.
The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s or entity’s claims into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative proceeding (unless we agree otherwise). And the arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s or entity’s case can only impact the person or entity that brought the claim, not our other customers, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other customers of ours.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class, consolidated, or representative basis, then the disputes, claims, or controversies will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated in federal court located in Los Angeles County, California.
This Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of the Services.
21.MODIFYING AND TERMINATING OUR SITE
We reserve the right to modify our Site or to suspend or stop providing all or portions of our Site at any time. You also have the right to stop using our Site at any time. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Site. All of the terms of these Terms (excluding our license grants to you) will survive any termination or suspension.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. You may not assign or delegate any rights under these Terms. We may freely assign or delegate our rights under these Terms. You agree that communications and transactions between us may be conducted electronically. You agree that these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and govern your use of the Services, Products, and Site, superseding any prior agreements between you and us on these subjects. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate services, third-party content, or third-party software. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org.
