13. DISPUTES: ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, TIME LIMITATION, & CLASS WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
You acknowledge and agree that before initiating any claim against Furtuna Skin, you will first give us an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. This includes sending a written description of your problem or dispute to us including, but not limited to, information or representations related to our products and upon which you rely. You may send the written description by U.S. Mail to Furtuna Skin, LLC, PO Box 277, Los Gatos, California, 95030; Attn: General Counsel. You agree to negotiate with Furtuna Skin in good faith about your problem or dispute. If for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction within 60 days after Furtuna Skin’s receipt of your written dispute, you agree to the dispute resolution provisions below.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site, to your purchase or use of any Furtuna Skin’s product, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
You and Furtuna Skin each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. This means that you and Furtuna Skin agree to arbitrate in our individual capacities only, not as a representative of a class, a member of a class, or a Private Attorney General. Likewise, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, Attn: General Counsel, Furtuna Skin, LLC, PO Box 277, Los Gatos, California, 95030. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. The AAA’s rules are available at http://www.adr.org/consumer or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 USD unless the arbitrator determines the claims are invalid or frivolous. Likewise, Furtuna Skin will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are invalid or frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another location that is mutually agreed upon.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the parties waive any right to a jury trial, unless such waiver is unenforceable. The parties also agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
You and Furtuna Skin agree to commence any arbitration proceeding within 1 year after the claim arises (including the mandatory pre-dispute procedures outlined above) and that any proceeding commenced after 1 year shall be barred.
You agree that any controversy excluded from the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions in this Agreement (other than an individual action filed in small claims court) shall be filed only in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, California, or the United States District Court for the Central District of California, and each party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such controversy.
In order to avoid irreparable injury to Furtuna Skin, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by you of the provisions of this Agreement, we shall be entitled to seek an injunction or other equitable relief restraining such breach. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as prohibiting Furtuna Skin from pursuing any other remedies available to it for such breach or threatened breach, including the recovery of monetary damages from you.
