ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND KOSAS COSMETICS, LLC, ITS MEMBERS, MANAGERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, DIRECT AND INDIRECT SUBSIDIARIES, AND ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDING ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PURCHASE (COLLECTIVELY “KOSAS”) ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCT (AS DEFINED IN THE TERMS OF SALE), YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES, THESE TERMS, ITS INTERPRETATION OR THE BREACH, TERMINATION OR VALIDITY THEREOF, THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT RESULT FROM THESE TERMS (INCLUDING RELATIONSHIPS WITH THIRD PARTIES WHO ARE NOT SIGNATORIES TO THESE TERMS), KOSAS’S ADVERTISING, PRIVACY OR CYBERSECURITY PRACTICES OR ANY RELATED PURCHASE (COLLECTIVELY, “DISPUTE”) SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION. DISPUTES SHALL NOT INCLUDE DISPUTES, CLAIMS, OR CONTROVERSIES CONCERNING PATENTS, TRADEMARKS, COPYRIGHTS, TRADE SECRETS OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
- Other than issues related to the Class Action Waiver (as defined below), the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision including but not limited to any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or these Terms is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant any remedy or relief that would otherwise be available in court. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) pursuant to the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. The arbitration shall be heard by one arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. Arbitration proceedings shall be governed by this provision and the applicable AAA procedures for consumer-related disputes, in effect at the time the claim is filed. The award rendered by the arbitrator may confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Consumer claimants (individuals whose transaction is intended for personal, family or household use) may elect to pursue their claims in small-claims court rather than arbitration. The small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to the customer’s individual dispute or controversy. YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
- Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Procedure. Before initiating any arbitration, you and Kosas must give the other party notice of the Dispute by providing written “Notice of Dispute” that is personally signed by you (if you are initiating the Dispute) or a representative of Kosas (if Kosas is initiating the Dispute). The Notice of Dispute must contain the following information (a) name and contact information (mailing address, email address, and telephone number); (b) detailed factual description of the nature of the Dispute; and (c) the resolution and relief sought. You must email your Notice of Dispute to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at Kosas Cosmetics, LLC, 16255 Ventura Blvd., Suite 800, Encino, California 91436 USA. We will send any Notice of Dispute to the most recent email address we have on file for you. You and Kosas will agree to attempt to resolve the Dispute through informal, good faith negotiations for a 60-day period after the date that a Notice of Dispute is received (or such longer period as is mutually agreed to by the parties). Either party may request a personal telephone or video conference as part of the informal negotiations. Should Kosas request a telephone or video conference, you (and your counsel if you are represented) agree to attend this conference. Should you request a telephone conference, Kosas (and its counsel if Kosas is represented) agrees to attend this conference. Compliance with this Pre-Arbitration Procedure is a condition precedent to initiating an arbitration with the AAA. Neither party may initiate an arbitration unless this Pre-Dispute Procedure is complied with. If the sufficiency of either party’s compliance with the Mandatory Pre-Dispute Procedure is at issue, either party may seek court intervention, and any arbitration proceeding shall be stayed, until the court rules on the compliance issue. Such court shall have the power to enjoin an arbitration proceeding or order other injunctive relief, which includes but is not limited to enjoining the filing of a demand for arbitration and/or payment of arbitration costs and fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that neither party seeks court intervention, either party may elect to raise the issue of a failure to comply with the Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Procedure before the arbitrator and seek relief in arbitration. The parties agree that any applicable statutory limitations period and any arbitration filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while you and Kosas participate in the Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Procedure in any effort to informally resolve the Dispute.
- To initiate an arbitration, the party seeking arbitration must write a demand for arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. For any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the consumer filing fee under the AAA Consumer Rules, and Kosas will pay the remaining AAA fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Kosas, Kosas will pay all AAA fees and costs.
- CLASS ACTION WAIVER. IN ANY DISPUTE, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NEITHER YOU NOR KOSAS SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS/USERS, OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY AND AN ARBITRATOR WILL NOT HAVE ANY AUTHORITY TO HEAR OR ARBITRATE ANY SUCH CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this Arbitration Agreement or the AAA Consumer Rules, as defined above and incorporated herein by reference, any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (i) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, or other representative action; and (ii) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the class, collective, or other representative action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.
- The AAA Supplementary Rules for Consumer Multiple Case Filings and AAA Multiple Consumer Case Filing Fees shall apply when twenty-five (25) or more similar claims are asserted against Kosas by the same or coordinated counsel or are otherwise coordinated (and your claim is one of them). In addition to the application of the AAA Supplementary Rules for Multiple Case Filings and the AAA Multiple Consumer Case Filing Fee Schedule, you and Kosas understand and agree that when twenty-five (25) or more similar claims are asserted against Kosas or you by the same or coordinated counsel or are otherwise coordinated resolution of your or Kosas’s Claim might be delayed. For such coordinated actions, you and Kosas also agree to the following coordinated bellwether process. Counsel for claimants and counsel for Kosas shall each select ten (10) cases (per side) to proceed first in individual arbitration proceedings. The remaining cases shall be deemed filed for purposes of the statute of limitations but not for the purpose of assessing AAA fees. No AAA fees shall be assessed in connection with those cases until they are selected to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a bellwether process. If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining cases after the conclusion of the initial twenty (20) proceedings, each side shall select another ten (10) cases (per side) to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a second bellwether process. A single arbitrator shall preside over each case. Only one case may be assigned to each arbitrator as part of a bellwether process unless the parties agree otherwise. This bellwether process shall continue, consistent with the parameters identified above, until all the claims included in these coordinated filings, including your case, are adjudicated or otherwise resolved. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled for claims subject to this bellwether process from the time the first cases are selected for a bellwether process until the time your or Kosas’s case is selected for a bellwether process, withdrawn, or otherwise resolved. A court shall have authority to enforce this paragraph and, if necessary, to enjoin the mass filing or prosecution of arbitration demands against Kosas or you.
- If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be class arbitration). The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. This parties acknowledge that the Agreement involves interstate commerce and agree that all issues relating to arbitration or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. sec. 1 et seq. Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party statutory attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided by law. Information on AAA and its applicable rules are available at the following numbers and URL: American Arbitration Association: (800) 778-7879, www.adr.org.
- IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION EACH OF YOU AND KOSAS WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
(i) Each of you and Kosas both agree that either party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or misuse of intellectual property rights.
(j) Right to Opt Out of Arbitration. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing email@example.com or write to us at Kosas Cosmetics, LLC, 16255 Ventura Blvd., Suite 800, Encino, California 91436 USA and providing your name, address, and telephone number, date of first access to the Site, date of purchase of product or service, IP address and a statement that you wish to opt out of this arbitration agreement. The opt out notice must be emailed or mailed no later than 30 days after you first accept this agreement to arbitrate by using this Site. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONSULT WITH YOUR ATTORNEY CONCERNING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. If you send the opt-out notice, and/or in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration agreement permits either you or Kosas to litigate any dispute in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party, and both you and Kosas agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the state or federal courts located in, respectively, California, or the federal district in which that county falls.
(k) TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU OR KOSAS MAY HAVE WITH RESPECT TO THE TERMS, PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR SITE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE OF KOSAS PRODUCTS) MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES. OTHERWISE, THE CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
- This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Kosas.
