9. Applicable Law
By visiting this Site, you agree that any dispute, claim, action, cause of action, issue or request for relief between you and John Hardy arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions, your visit to this Site, or to products purchased on or through this Site (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. You and we irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts in New York County, New York for all Disputes that are heard in court.
10. Dispute Resolution / Binding Arbitration
You and we agree to submit all Disputes to confidential arbitration in the State of New York on an individual and purely bilateral, non-class/non-representative basis. Arbitration on an individual basis is the exclusive remedy for any Disputes that might otherwise be brought on a class, collective, or representative basis between you and John Hardy. YOU AND WE WAIVE OUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
This agreement to arbitrate will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 (the “FAA”) and shall be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and John Hardy shall select a mutually agreeable arbitrator from the AAA. If we cannot agree within thirty (30) days after a request for arbitration is submitted, a single arbitrator will be selected by the AAA. Unless otherwise precluded by law, you and John Hardy shall each separately pay your or its own attorneys’ fees and costs.
Notwithstanding the above, if the Dispute concerns a matter for injunctive or other similar relief that is appropriate under applicable law, for instance the enforcement or validity of our, or our licensor’s, intellectual property rights, we may seek such injunctive or other similar relief in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction, whether or not it is in the State of New York.
11. Limitation on Disputes
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any Dispute must be filed within one (1) year after the occurrence of the event or facts giving rise to a Dispute or you waive the right to pursue any Dispute based upon such event or facts forever.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. A waiver must be in writing and signed by the party giving the waiver.
You agree that if any provision in these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or void, that provision shall be struck and the remainder of these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect consistent with applicable law. However, in the event the provisions waiving or precluding class arbitration proceedings are found to be invalid, unenforceable or void for any reason, the entire agreement to arbitrate shall be void.
