PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT, YOUR RIGHT TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH US THROUGH A CLASS ACTION OF ANY KIND, AND YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

Arbitration Agreement and Waiver of Right to Jury Trial (“Arbitration Agreement”)

YOU AGREE THAT, EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY FOR SMALL CLAIMS COURT, ANY DISPUTES AND CLAIMS RELATED TO OR ARISING FROM THESE TERMS OF USE OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND US, INCLUDING DISPUTES ARISING FROM PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED OR SOLD BY US OR ANY OTHER ENTITY RELATED TO US, WHETHER BASED IN TORT, CONTRACT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING PRIVATE ARBITRATION BEFORE A SINGLE ARBITRATOR APPLYING THE LAWS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA INSTEAD OF IN COURT. YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BOTH YOU AND WE ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

If any court or arbitrator deems any term or provision in the immediately preceding paragraph to be unenforceable as to any claim, then only that claim will proceed in litigation in court rather than by arbitration, but only after the conclusion of the arbitration of any claim or dispute that remains subject to the immediately preceding paragraph.

Class Action Waiver

YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM YOU OR WE ASSERT SHALL BE CONDUCTED IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, AND THAT YOU AND WE EXPRESSLY WAIVE OUR RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON BEHALF OF A CLASS. You or we may, however, bring an individual claim in small claims court consistent with any applicable jurisdictional and monetary limits that may apply, provided that any such claim is maintained as an individual claim rather than a claim on behalf of an actual or potential class of claimants.

You and we acknowledge and agree that the arbitrator of any dispute between you and us may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim.

Initiating Arbitration

If any court or arbitrator deems any term or provision in the immediately preceding paragraph to be unenforceable as to any claim, then only that claim will proceed in litigation in court rather than by arbitration, but only after the conclusion of the arbitration of any claim or dispute that remains subject to the immediately preceding paragraph.

Governing Law

The interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the FAA. If it is determined that the FAA does not govern any issue that arises under this section, that issue shall be resolved under the laws of Pennsylvania, without regard to its choice-of-law rules.

Limitation on time to file claims. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE SERVICES MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED UNLESS APPLICABLE STATE OR FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS THIS LIMITATION.

Waiver and severability. No waiver of any term or condition set out in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver by us of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition. Our failure to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.

Entire agreement. The Terms of Use and incorporated Terms of Sale and Privacy Policy constitute the sole and entire agreement between us regarding the Services and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the Services.

All questions or comments about this privacy and our privacy practices should be directed to: [email protected] or by visiting our Support Page.
