No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions
You and Glamtech agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or the Sites, Content or Products is personal to you and Glamtech and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and Glamtech agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempt to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and Glamtech agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
Federal Arbitration Act
You and Glamtech agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 23 will be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution
You and Glamtech agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to Glamtech will be sent by certified mail or courier to Glamtech Corporation, Attn: Legal, 73 Jim Elder Drive, Campbell, CA, 95008. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your Glamtech account and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent electronically in accordance with this Agreement and will include (x) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute, (y) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (z) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and Glamtech cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or Glamtech may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 23, commence an arbitration proceeding.
EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES IN WHICH EITHER PARTY SEEKS TO BRING AN INDIVIDUAL ACTION IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR SEEKS INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FOR THE ALLEGED UNLAWFUL USE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, COPYRIGHTS, TRADEMARKS, TRADE NAMES, LOGOS, TRADE SECRETS OR PATENTS, YOU AND GLAMTECH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE MUST BE COMMENCED OR FILED BY YOU OR GLAMTECH WITHIN (1) YEAR OF THE DATE THE DISPUTE AROSE, OTHERWISE THE UNDERLYING CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED (WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AND GLAMTECH WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASSERT SUCH CLAIM REGARDING THE DISPUTE). You and Glamtech agree that (a) any arbitration will occur in San Francisco, California, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section, and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of Illinois, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.
