DISPUTES AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Use of this Site, your Account, any purchases made through this Site, and any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Site, your Account, or products purchased through the Site shall be governed by the laws of the your home state of residence without respect to its choice (or conflict) of laws rules.
Both you and Company waive the right to bring any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Site, your Account, or products purchased through the Site as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any such claim brought by anyone else. (This waiver, and the similar waiver specified for arbitration proceedings, are generally referred to herein as "the class action waiver.")
Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute shall be in Los Angeles, California. Each party submits to personal jurisdiction and venue in that forum for any and all purposes.
AGREEMENT TO PRE-ARBITRATION NOTIFICATION
These Terms provide for final, binding arbitration of all disputed claims (discussed immediately below). Company and you agree, however, that it would be advantageous to discuss and hopefully resolve any disputes before arbitration proceedings are initiated. In the event of a dispute, the claimant – whether you or Company – shall send a letter to the other side briefly summarizing the claim and the request for relief. If Company is the claimant, the letter shall be sent, via email, to the email account listed in your Account. If you are the claimant, the letter shall be sent to NutraScientific LABS, Attn: General Counsel, 11684 Ventura Blvd Suite 332 Studio City, Ca 91604. If the dispute is not resolved within 60 days after the letter is sent, the claimant may proceed to initiate arbitration proceedings.
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE CLAIMS
Any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Site, your Account, or products purchased through the Site shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration.
The arbitration shall take place in Los Angeles County, California in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures of the American Arbitration Association. Unless either party or the arbitrator requests a hearing, the parties will submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing. The arbitrator will make an award based only on the documents. This is called a Desk Arbitration. If any party makes a written request for a hearing within ten days after the American Arbitration Association acknowledges receipt of a claimant's demand for arbitration (or the arbitrator requests a hearing), the parties shall participate in telephone hearing. In no event shall the parties be required to travel to Los Angeles to participate in the arbitration.
If you decide to commence arbitration, the provider will require to you to pay a filing fee (which currently is $125 for claims under $10,000). If your filing fee is more than $125, Company will reimburse you for any excess fee promptly after it receives notice of your arbitration. If the arbitrator ultimately rules in your favor, Company will also reimburse you for the $125 base fee.
If the arbitrator rules in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim and issues you an award that is greater than the value of the Company’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or greater than zero if no offer was made), then Company will pay you the amount of the award or $500, whichever is greater (in addition to reimbursing you for the base fee).
This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim.
The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, and with the exception of Desk Arbitrations, the Federal Rules of Evidence shall govern the admissibility of evidence in any arbitral proceeding.
Both you and Company waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding.
If a proposed class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated notwithstanding the above prohibition and it is finally determined by the arbitrator (or a court of competent jurisdiction) that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the arbitration proceedings shall be bifurcated as follows and notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary: 1. The issue of arbitrability shall be determined by the Arbitrator pursuant to the applicable rules and substantive law. 2. Assuming the Arbitrator concludes that the arbitration may proceed, said arbitration shall be stayed, and the issue of whether to certify any alleged or putative class for a class action (or other representative) proceeding shall be presented to and decided by a court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall not have authority or jurisdiction to decide class certification (or any similar representative action) issues. The decision to certify or not certify a class action (or to otherwise permit the action to proceed on a representative basis) shall be appealable in the judicial proceedings consistent with the rules and law governing the appeals of interlocutory decisions or class certification (or similar) rulings specifically, if appropriate. 3. Once any issues regarding class certification (and/or similar representative requirements) have been finally decided by the court, the arbitrator will have authority to decide the substantive claims on an individual or a class (or other representative) basis, as may be determined and directed by the court.
The arbitrator(s) shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, make clearly erroneous factual findings, or abuse his or her discretion, and the award may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error.
OPTING-OUT OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver specified in these Terms by doing the following. Within 15 days of the earlier of first setting up your Account or making your first purchase, you must send a letter to NutraScientific LABS, Attn: General Counsel, 11684 Ventura Blvd Suite 332 Studio City, Ca 91604. that specifies (1) your name, (2) your account number or account member name, (3) your mailing address, and (4) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver specified in these Terms. All other Terms shall continue to apply to your Account, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, Company agrees that if Company makes any future change to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions (other than a change to Company’s address), you may reject any such change (but only that change)by sending a letter to Company (to the address provided above) within 15 days of Company providing notice of the change.
Your letter must be postmarked by the applicable 15-day deadline to be effective. You are not required to send the letter by confirmed mail or return receipt requested, but it is recommended that you do so. Your request to be excluded will only be effective and enforceable if you can prove that the request was postmarked within the applicable 15-day deadline.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Company and governs your use of the Site and supersedes any prior version of these Terms between you and Company with respect to the Site.
The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of Company's right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance, and the same shall be and remain in full force and effect. If any provision of these Terms is found by the arbitrator or (if proper) a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the remaining provisions shall not be affected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect, and such provision may be modified or severed from these Terms to the extent necessary to make such provision enforceable and consistent with the remainder of these Terms.
Except where otherwise specified, Company may deliver notice to you by means of electronic mail, a general notice on the Site or by other reliable method.
