8. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
8.1 This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement shall apply if you (i) reside in the United States; or (ii) do not reside in the United States, but bring any claim against Karmastyle in the United States.
8.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Karmastyle is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom Section 8.1 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Karmastyle’s customer service team, and (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) using its specially designed Consumer Arbitration Rules (as modified by this Section 8). Specifically, the process provides:
· Claims can be filed with AAA online (www.adr.org);
· Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator;
· Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship with any party;
· Parties retain the right to seek relief in small claims court for certain claims, at their option;
· The initial filing fee for the consumer is capped at $200;
· The consumer gets to elect the hearing location and can elect to participate live, by phone, video conference, or, for claims under $25,000, by the submission of documents;
· The arbitrator can grant any remedy that the parties could have received in court to resolve the party’s individual claim.
8.3 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Karmastyle each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us; you can contact Karmastyle’s customer service team by emailing us at email@example.com, or at the contact addresses provided on the Site. If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.
8.4 AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. YOU AND KARMASTYLE MUTUALLY AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE BREACH, TERMINATION, ENFORCEMENT OR INTERPRETATION THEREOF, OR TO THE USE OF THE SITE, ANY KARMASTYLE SERVICE OR THE COLLECTIVE CONTENT (COLLECTIVELY, “DISPUTES”) WILL BE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION (THE “ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”). IF THERE IS A DISPUTE ABOUT WHETHER THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAN BE ENFORCED OR APPLIES TO OUR DISPUTE, YOU AND KARMASTYLE AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR WILL DECIDE THAT ISSUE.
8.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Karmastyle each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) Any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack).
8.6 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.
8.7 Modification to AAA Rules – Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, Karmastyle agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option, (a) in the county where you reside; (b) in San Francisco County; (c) in any other location to which you and Karmastyle both agree; (d) via phone or video conference; or (e) for any claim or counterclaim under $25,000, by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
8.8 Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
8.9 JURY TRIAL WAIVER. YOU AND KARMASTYLE ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AS TO ALL ARBITRABLE DISPUTES.
8.10 NO CLASS ACTIONS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDINGS. YOU AND KARMASTYLE ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS USER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ACTION, OR ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING AS TO ALL DISPUTES. FURTHER, UNLESS YOU AND KARMASTYLE BOTH OTHERWISE AGREE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. IF THIS PARAGRAPH IS HELD UNENFORCEABLE WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTE, THEN THE ENTIRETY OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WILL BE DEEMED VOID WITH RESPECT TO SUCH DISPUTE.
8.11 Severability. Except as provided in Section 8.10, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
8.12 Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 10.1 (“Notification procedures and changes to these Terms”), if Karmastyle changes this Section 8 (“Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement”) after the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) within thirty (30) days of the date such change became effective. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Karmastyle in accordance with the provisions of the “Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement” section as of the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
8.13 Survival. Except as provided in Section 8.10, this Section 8 will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Site or terminate your Karmastyle account.
9. Governing law and jurisdiction
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. If you are not a consumer in the EEA, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with this agreement is Santa Clara County, California, or the United States District Court for the Northern District of California and our dispute will be determined under California law.
If you are a consumer in the EEA, this won’t deprive you of any protection you have under the law of the country where you live and access to the courts in that country.
10. General terms
10.1 Notification procedures and changes to these Terms
We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, and you agree to receive legal notices electronically if that’s what we decide. We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. If a revision, in our discretion, is material, we’ll notify you. By continuing to access or use Karmacloset after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the new Terms. If you don’t agree to the new terms, please stop using Karmacloset.
These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Karmastyle without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
10.3 Entire agreement/severability
10.4 No waiver
No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Karmacloset’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms are a contract between you and Karmastyle Inc., PO box 103, Palo Alto, CA 94302.
