DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION

 

PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION

CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS

 

You and Fromm agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights; (c) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state or local agency if that action is available; and (d) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND FROMM ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Fromm otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

 

Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA ”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The parties agree that the Federal Arbitration Act applies and will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

 

            Arbitration Process

 

A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an experienced (15+ years practicing) attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Illinois.

 

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Fromm otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000 (US), then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Fromm submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000 (US), your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties.

 

            Arbitrator’s Decision

 

The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. 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 having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent, to the extent permitted by law, with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable.

 

            Fees

 

Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. If applicable arbitration rules or laws require us to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Dispute Resolution provision to be enforceable, then we will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration.

 

            Changes

 

Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Fromm changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first 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 to info@frommbeauty.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of Fromm’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Fromm in accordance with the arbitration provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section (however entitled) as of the date you first accepted these Terms or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms.

 

ENTIRE AGREEMENT

 

These Terms, and our Privacy Policy, constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Fromm and you regarding the Services, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Fromm and you regarding the Services.

 

MISCELLANEOUS

 

The failure by Fromm to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Fromm. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. Throughout these Terms, the word “include” or “including” means “including, but not limited to”. Provisions that by their nature are intended to survive the termination of these Terms or your use of the Services will survive.

 

CHANGES TO THESE TERMS OF USE

 

We may amend or update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion and without prior notice.  Any such amendments or updates will be effective upon our posting of the revised Terms.  Your continued use of the Site and/or the Services following our posting of any revised Terms will constitute your acknowledgement and acceptance of the amended Terms.
