TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RELATING TO OUR PLATFORMS AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH OUR PLATFORMS, INCLUDING: (A) ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; AND (B) ANY WARRANTY ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE.

10. Governing law and jurisdiction
These Terms and Conditions (and any dispute arising out of, or related to them) shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflicts of law principles that may require the application of another jurisdictions’ law. Subject to Section 11, you and we both submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located in New York, NY for resolution of any lawsuit or court proceeding permitted under these Terms and Conditions.
- Generally. In the interest
of resolving disputes between you and us in the most expedient and cost-effective
manner, and except as described in Section 11.2, you and we agree that
every dispute arising in connection with these Terms and Conditions will be
resolved by binding arbitration.
Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms and Conditions, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms and Conditions.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
- Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 11.1, nothing in these Terms
and Conditions will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right
of either party to:
- bring an individual action in small claims court;
- pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available;
- seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or
- to file suit in a court
of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
- Opt-Out. If you do not wish to resolve disputes by binding arbitration, you
may opt out of the provisions of this Section 11 within 30 days after the
date that you agree to these Terms and Conditions by sending a letter to Chiaro
USA, Inc., Attention: Legal Department/Office Manager – Arbitration Opt-Out, 184
7th Ave, Unit #107, New York, NY 10011 that specifies: your full legal name,
the email address associated with your account on our Platform or order, and a
statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once we receive your Opt-Out Notice, this
Section 11 will be void and any action arising out of these Terms and
Conditions will be resolved as set forth in Section 10. The remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions will not be
affected by your Opt-Out Notice.
- Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and us will be
settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American
Arbitration Association (“AAA”)
under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by these Terms and
Conditions. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at +1-800-778-7879, or
by contacting us by email at email@example.com. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to
resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or
enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
- Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must
first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S.
Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party
has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). Our address for Notice is:
Chiaro USA, Inc., Legal Department/Office Manager –
Arbitration Opt-Out, 184 7th Ave, Unit #107, New York, NY 10011. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”).
The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or us must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by us in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, we will pay to you the higher of: (a) the amount awarded by the arbitrator and (b) US$10,000.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, we
will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for
more than US$10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by
the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be
agreed upon in New York, NY but if the claim is for US $10,000 or less, you may
choose whether the arbitration will be conducted:
- solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator;
- through a non-appearance-based telephone hearing; or
- by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address.
If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules.
Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
- No Class Actions. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY
BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS
INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED
CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree
otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims,
and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
- Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If we make any future change to
this arbitration provision, other than a change to our address for Notice of
Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within
30 days of the change to our address for Notice of Arbitration, in which
case your account with us will be immediately terminated and this arbitration
provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will
- Enforceability. If Section 11.7 or the entirety of this Section 11 is found to be unenforceable, or if we receive an Opt-Out Notice from you, then the entirety of this Section 11 will be null and void and, in that case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 10 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions.
