DISPUTES, BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AND WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS
Disputes. The terms of this Section shall apply to all Disputes between you and Gear Collector. For the purposes of this Section, “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, or action between you and Gear Collector arising under or relating to the Products, the Websites, this Agreement, or any other transaction involving you and Gear Collector, whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis, and shall be interpreted to be given the broadest meaning allowable under law. YOU AND Gear Collector AGREE THAT “DISPUTE” AS DEFINED IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT INCLUDE ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BY YOU OR Gear Collector FOR (A) TRADE SECRET MISAPPROPRIATION, (B) PATENT INFRINGEMENT, (C) COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OR MISUSE, AND (D) TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT OR DILUTION. Moreover, notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, you agree that a court, not the arbitrator, may decide if a claim falls within one of these four exceptions.
Binding Arbitration. You and Gear Collector further agree: (a) to arbitrate all Disputes between the parties pursuant to the provisions in this Agreement; (b) this Agreement memorializes a transaction in interstate commerce; (c) the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1, et seq.) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Section; and (d) this Section shall survive termination of this Agreement. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JUDGE OR JURY IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND YOUR GROUNDS FOR APPEAL ARE LIMITED. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court sitting in proper jurisdiction could, and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. In addition, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties.
Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring an individual action in the small claims court of your state or municipality if the action is within that court’s jurisdiction and is pending only in that court.
Dispute Notice. In the event of a Dispute, you or Gear Collector must first send to the other party a notice of the Dispute that shall include a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to Gear Collector must be addressed to: Gear Collector, LLC, 24130 Tango Drive, Valencia, CA 91354, U.S.A. (the “Gear Collector Notice Address”). The Dispute Notice to you will be sent by certified mail to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. If Gear Collector and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or Gear Collector may commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Section. Following submission and receipt of the Dispute Notice, each of us agrees to act in good faith to seek to resolve the Dispute before commencing arbitration.
Exclusive Venue for Other Controversies
Gear Collector and 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 consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such controversy.
The Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between Gear Collector and you with respect to your use of the Websites, your purchase of products and services through the Websites, and as applicable any products or services of Gear Collector. Any cause of action you may have with respect to the Websites or Gear Collector products or services must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises, notwithstanding any statutes of limitation to the contrary. The section titles used in the Terms and Conditions are purely for convenience and carry with them no legal or contractual effect. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between you and Gear Collector, and you do not have any authority to create any obligation or make any representation on Gear Collector behalf. You may not assign or transfer any rights or obligations of these Terms and Conditions, by operation of law or otherwise, without Gear Collector written consent. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms and Conditions will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable against you and Gear Collector and their respective successors and assigns.
The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
Other important terms
These Terms and Conditions supersede any other terms and conditions previously published by us and any other representations or statements made by us to you, whether oral, written, or otherwise. We may assign, transfer, or sub-contract any of our rights or obligations under these Terms and Conditions to any third party at our discretion. No delay by us in exercising any right or remedy under these Terms and Conditions shall operate as waiver of that right or remedy or shall affect our ability to subsequently exercise that right or remedy. Any waiver must be agreed by us in writing.
