16.DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
EXCEPT WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW:
THE WEBSITE AND ALL CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. WE MAKE NO, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL, REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES AS TO THE RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, QUALITY, SUITABILITY, AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY, AND/OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE. WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM THAT: (A) THE USE OF THE WEBSITE WILL BE SECURE, TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR OPERATE IN COMBINATION WITH ANY OTHER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, SYSTEM OR DATA, (B) THE WEBSITE OR SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATIONS, (C) ANY STORED DATA WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE, (D) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, INFORMATION, OR OTHER MATERIAL PURCHASED OR OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE WEBSITE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATIONS, (E) ERRORS OR DEFECTS IN THE WEBSITE WILL BE CORRECTED, OR (F) THE WEBSITE OR THE SERVER(S) THAT MAKE THE WEBSITE AVAILABLE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

17.LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES
NOTHING IN THESE TERMS IS INTENDED TO EXCLUDE OR LIMIT ANY CONDITION, WARRANTY, RIGHT, OR LIABILITY THAT MAY NOT BE LAWFULLY EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. ACCORDINGLY, ONLY THE LIMITATIONS THAT ARE LAWFUL IN YOUR JURISDICTION WILL APPLY TO YOU AND IN SUCH INSTANCES OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED.
18.DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY GOVERNING LAW, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT YOU MAY HAVE IN THE FUTURE MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. THE RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, MAY BE MORE LIMITED OR MAY NOT EXIST. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF (LEAD OR OTHERWISE) OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
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 THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE AND SALE AND THE AGREEMENT AS A COURT WOULD.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, and as an exception to final and binding confidential arbitration, you and Wolfson both retain the right to pursue, in small claims court, any claim that is within that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual (non-class and non-representative) basis, including overdue account matters within the small claims court’s jurisdiction. Wolfson will not demand arbitration in connection with any individual claim that you properly file and pursue in a small claims court, so long as the claim is and remains pending in that court on an individual basis. The following claims shall not be subject to final and binding arbitration and must be adjudicated only in the state or federal courts located in New York, New York: (i) any dispute, controversy, or claim relating to the infringement or validity of our proprietary rights, including without limitation, trademarks, service marks, trade dress, copyrights, trade secrets, or patents, or the intellectual property rights of a third party; or (ii) an action by Wolfson for temporary, preliminary, or permanent injunctive relief, whether prohibitive or mandatory, or other provisional relief, against you for breach or threatened breach of this Agreement. You expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims that are excluded from final and binding arbitration pursuant to this subsection “b” in any representative or class-wide capacity, including but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action or any class-wide arbitration. Small claims matters may be filed in any small claims court with personal and subject matter jurisdiction over the parties. For all other matters excluded from final and binding arbitration by this subsection “b,” the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in New York, New York, and forever waive any challenge to said courts’ jurisdiction and venue.
Required Pre-Dispute Procedures
We acknowledge and agree that before initiating any Claim against the other, we agree to first contact the other with a written description of the dispute, which shall include all relevant documents and information, and the proposed resolution. You may send the written description of any dispute you have with us by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or by writing to Wolfson Brands (U.K.), Ltd., ATTN: WOLFSON LEGAL, 12 Payne Street, Glasgow, G4 0LF, United Kingdom by certified or registered mail. Wolfson will contact you by letter at the billing address you provided to us or at the email address you provided to us. You agree to negotiate with Wolfson or its designated representative in good faith about your problem or dispute. If for some reason the dispute is not resolved within 60 days after receipt of the written description of the dispute, we agree to the dispute resolution provisions below. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other term of this arbitration agreement, we will have the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in state or federal court located in New York, New York to enforce these Terms or prevent an infringement of a third party’s rights or our intellectual property rights, as stated in subsection “b” above. You hereby expressly consent to, and forever waive any challenge to, the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of said courts in such actions.
You and Wolfson agree to commence any arbitration proceeding within 1 year after the Claim arises (the 1-year period includes the required pre-dispute procedures set forth above) and that any arbitration proceeding commenced after 1 year shall be forever barred.
If the amount in controversy is $500 or less, then the arbitration may be conducted by telephone or by written submissions. Otherwise, the arbitration shall be conducted in New York, New York unless Wolfson otherwise agrees to arbitrate in another forum requested by you.
Organization, Rules, and the Arbitrator
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Rules. We will pay the fees charged by the arbitrator for claims totaling less than $750, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, in which case, we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you for any arbitrator fees paid. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. In all other respects, the parties shall each pay their own additional fees, costs, and expenses, including, but not limited to, those for any attorneys, experts, documents, and witnesses.
Governing Law and Award
The arbitrator shall follow the substantive law of the State of New York without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. Any award rendered shall include a confidential written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the FAA. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
This provision survives termination of your account or relationship with Wolfson, bankruptcy, assignment, or transfer. If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply. If a portion of this arbitration provision (other than the class action waiver) is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.
Failure or any delay in enforcing this arbitration provision in connection with any particular Claim will not constitute a waiver of any rights to require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other Claims except all Claims must be brought within the 1-year limitation period set forth above. This Section 18 is the entire arbitration agreement between you and Wolfson and shall not be modified except in writing by Wolfson.
Wolfson reserves the right to amend this arbitration provision at any time. Your continued use of the Website, purchase of any product on or through the Website, or use or attempted use of Wolfson’s products, is affirmation of your consent to such changes. Should the changes to this arbitration provision be material, Wolfson will provide you notice and an opportunity to opt-out. Your continued use of the Website, purchase or use of any products on or through the Website, or use or attempted use of the Wolfson’s products is affirmation of your consent to such material changes.
Batch Arbitrations. To the extent permitted by applicable law, to increase efficiency of resolution, in the event 100 or more similar arbitration demands against Wolfson presented by or with the assistance or involvement of the same law firm(s) or organization(s), are submitted to an arbitration provider selected in accordance with the rules described above within a 30-day period: (A) the parties shall cooperate to group the arbitration demands into randomized batches of no more than 100 demands per batch (plus, to the extent there are fewer than 100 arbitration demands left over after the batching described above, a final batch consisting of the remaining demands); (B) claimants’ counsel shall organize and present the batched demands to the arbitration provider in a format as directed by the arbitration provider; (C) the arbitration provider shall provide for resolution of each batch as a single arbitration with one set of filing and administrative fees and one arbitrator assigned per batch; and (D) the arbitration provider shall send one set of disclosures per batch and will set up one Arbitration Management Conference per batch. You agree to cooperate in good faith with Wolfson and the arbitration provider to implement such a batch approach to resolution and fees. Disagreements over the applicability of this batch arbitration process will be settled in a single, consolidated arbitration proceeding that includes all affected parties and is resolved by a single arbitrator subject to the requirements of this section. Notwithstanding any provision in the Agreement to the contrary, batch arbitrations shall take place in New York, New York or, if the parties prefer, by video conference. The parties may also agree to conducting arbitration based on written submissions alone.
California Customers. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, to the extent that the arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction determines, in contravention of this agreement to arbitrate, that California law governs the relationship between Wolfson and customers residing in California, then the following rules shall apply: (a) a representative action for public injunctive relief pursuant to California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1750 et seq.), Unfair Competition Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 et seq.) and/or False Advertising Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17500 et seq.) must be arbitrated on a class basis, (b) in the event that the foregoing clause is deemed invalid or unenforceable, a representative action for public injunctive relief pursuant to California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1750 et seq.), Unfair Competition Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 et seq.) and/or False Advertising Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17500 et seq.) may be brought in the state or federal courts located in New York on a class basis, and (c) any claims other than for public injunctive relief must be arbitrated on an individual, non-class basis as otherwise set forth in this Section 18.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE, AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH BINDING, FINAL, AND CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU PURCHASE, USE, OR ATTEMPT TO USE A PRODUCT PURCHASED ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE (WHICHEVER COMES FIRST) BY WRITING TO US VIA CERTIFIED OR REGISTERED MAIL AT WOLFSON BRANDS (U.K.), LTD., ATTN: WOLFSON LEGAL, 12 PAYNE STREET, GLASGOW, G4 0LF, UNITED KINGDOM, WITH THE NOTATION “ARBITRATION OPT-OUT” ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ENVELOPE OR PACKAGE, OR BY SENDING AN EMAIL TO firstname.lastname@example.org WITH THE SUBJECT LINE “ARBITRATION OPT-OUT”.
