Arbitration; Class Action Waiver; Jury Trial Waiver; Enforcement of Terms and Conditions; Governing Law
You acknowledge and agree that the terms contained in this Terms and Conditions are reasonable and necessary, and that your actual or threatened breach of this Terms and Conditions would give rise to irreparable harm to VANDAL-A for which monetary damages would not constitute an adequate remedy and, in addition to any and all other rights that may be available in respect of such breach or threatened breach, will entitle VANDAL-A to immediate injunctive and other equitable relief without any requirement to post bond.
These Terms and Conditions are governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law. VANDAL-A makes no representation that Materials provided through the Services are applicable or appropriate for use in all locations. If you use the Services from other locations you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. If you take legal action relating to these Terms and Conditions or your interactions with or relationship to VANDAL-A that is not subject to arbitration as provided below, you agree to file such action only in the state and federal courts located in New York County, New York and waive any objection you may have to the venue or forum.
Any controversy or claim between you and VANDAL-A arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions, or breach thereof, including disputes with respect to whether the subject matter of any controversy or claim is within the scope of the Terms and Conditions, will be resolved by binding arbitration in New York County, New York under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and administered by the AAA. The parties explicitly disclaim any applicability of the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods to these Terms and Conditions. All arbitration proceedings will be conducted in English. Such arbitration will have one (1) neutral arbitrator if the amount in controversy is less than one million dollars ($1,000,000) or otherwise before a panel of three (3) neutral arbitrators. Each of the arbitrators must be i) a lawyer licensed to practice law in the United States with a minimum of fifteen (15) years of legal practice or senior level business experience or a retired judge with a minimum of five (5) years of service on the bench, ii) an individual with at least five (5) years of experience as an arbitrator, and iii) on the roster of neutrals of the AAA or similar nationally recognized ADR organization. If the arbitration proceedings shall be conducted before a panel of three neutral arbitrators, the panel shall be selected using the following process: Within fifteen (15) days after the commencement of arbitration, VANDAL-A and you shall each select one person meeting the specified qualifications to act as neutral arbitrator, and the two thus selected shall select a third neutral arbitrator meeting the specified qualifications within fifteen (15) days of their appointment. The third neutral arbitrator shall act as the chair of the arbitration panel. If the arbitrators selected by VANDAL-A and you are unable to or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator shall be selected by the AAA.
Neither you nor VANDAL-A will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms and Conditions. Any dispute resolution proceeding 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, YOU WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT, CLAIM OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO ENFORCE, DEFEND OR INTERPRET ANY RIGHTS OR REMEDIES ARISING HEREUNDER, RELATING TO OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
If any part of these Terms and Conditions is found to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of remaining provisions.
You may not assign or otherwise transfer these Terms and Conditions or any rights or obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, and any such assignment in violation of this Agreement shall be null and void. The failure of VANDAL-A to exercise or enforce any right or provision set forth herein shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms and Conditions set forth the entire understanding between you and VANDAL-A with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede any prior or contemporaneous communications, representations, or agreements, whether oral or written, between you and VANDAL-A with respect to such subject matter.
