22.          DISPUTES

You and Astral Brands LLC agree that any dispute that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to your use of or access to the Offerings, any validity, interpretation, breach, enforcement, or termination of these Terms, or otherwise relating to Astral Brands LLC in any way (collectively, “Covered Dispute Matters”) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Section 22.

22.1         Applicable Law. You and we agree that United States federal law including the Federal Arbitration Act, and (to the extent not inconsistent with or pre-empted by federal law) the laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A., without regard to conflict of laws principles, will govern all Covered Dispute Matters. Such body of law will apply regardless of your residence or the location of where you use the Offerings.

22.2         OUR ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. You and we agree that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act applies in all cases and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings. Any Covered Dispute Matter must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (including utilizing desk, phone or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel). We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $5,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You and we agree that the arbitrator shall not conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals. You and we agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, international, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable or a particular claim is subject to arbitration. You and we agree that judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. You and we agree that the arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

22.3         Exceptions To Our Agreement To Arbitrate Disputes. There are only two exceptions to this agreement to arbitrate:

(a)            First, if either party reasonably believes that the other party has in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the Intellectual Property Rights of the other party, the party whose rights have been violated may seek injunctive or other appropriate interim relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.

(b)            Second, each party will retain the right to seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of the jurisdiction of such courts.

22.4         Future Amendments to the Agreement to Arbitrate. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any amendment to this agreement to arbitrate in the future, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against us prior to the effective date of the amendment. However, the amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the agreement to arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between you and us. If you do not agree to these amended terms, you may cease all use of the Offerings within 30 days of the posting or notification and you will not be bound by the amended terms.

22.5         Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless you and we agree otherwise and except as described in Section 22.3(b) (Small Claims Court), in the event that the agreement to arbitrate above is found not to apply to You or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt out of the agreement to arbitrate or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree (except as otherwise provided by law) that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Astral Brands LLC must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in New York City, New York (borough of Manhattan). You and we agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Wimington, Delaware for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

22.6         YOU MAY OPT-OUT OF ARBITRATION. IF YOU ARE A USER OF THE OFFERINGS, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REJECT THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE PROVISION (“OPT-OUT”) BY EMAILING US AN OPT-OUT NOTICE TO ARBITRATIONOPTOUT@[Brand].COM (“OPT-OUT NOTICE”). THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN 30 DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS FOR THE FIRST TIME. IF YOU ARE NOT A NEW USER, YOU HAVE UNTIL 30 DAYS AFTER THE POSTING OF THE NEW TERMS TO SUBMIT AN ARBITRATION OPT-OUT NOTICE.

22.7         Opt-out procedure. In order to opt-out, you must email your name, address (including street address, city, state, and zip code), email address(es) associated with your Account(s) to which the opt-out applies to: arbitrationoptout@[Brand].com. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.

22.8         YOU WAIVE CERTAIN RIGHTS. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE (a) TO A COURT TRIAL (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PROVIDED ABOVE), (b) TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING FILED AGAINST US AND/OR RELATED THIRD PARTIES, AND (c) TO A TRIAL BY JURY EVEN IF ANY ARBITRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THESE TERMS.

22.9         STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR YOUR CLAIMS. REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO USE OF THE OFFERINGS OR THESE TERMS MUST BE FILED WITHIN 1 YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.

Nothing contained in these Terms shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between us. Our failure to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect our full right to require such performance at any time thereafter, nor shall our waiver of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of these Terms shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by any applicable arbitral award or court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms unenforceable or invalid as a whole but these Terms shall be modified, to the extent possible, by the adjudicating entity to most fully reflect the original intent of the parties as reflected in the original provision. The headings in the Terms are for convenience only and shall not be used in its interpretation. All rights conferred under these Terms or by any other instrument or law shall be cumulative and may be exercised singularly or concurrently. Neither these Terms nor any of your rights or obligations hereunder may be assigned or transferred by you without our prior written approval. Any assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. We may assign these Terms to any party that assumes our obligations hereunder.
