DISPUTES

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your visit to the Site or to products or services sold or distributed by the Company or through the Site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court. Any arbitration will be conducted in New York, NY by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) before a single arbitrator under its rules. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also  may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

TERMINATION
The Company may prohibit you from using or accessing the Site (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Site) for any reason, or no reason, at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice.

You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or access Third Party Content. The Terms of Use and the relationship between you and the Company shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions. If arbitration does not apply, you will submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within New York County, New York. The Company’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms of Use is found by an appropriate tribunal to be invalid, the other provisions of the Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect.  Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Site or the Terms of Use by you against the Company must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. You agree that all causes of action arising out of or connected with the Terms of Use shall be resolved individually without resort to any form of class action.
