These Terms and Conditions are personal to you and no third party claiming through you is entitled to benefit under these Terms and Conditions.

Neither Le Marke nor you are authorized to act as an agent or legal representative of the other party or have any power or authority to bind of commit the other party.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY, AS THEY REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH US, AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
You acknowledge and agree that before initiating any claim against us, you will first give us an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. This includes sending a written description of your problem or dispute to us including, but not limited to, information or representations related to our products and upon which you rely. You may send the written description by U.S. Mail to Le Marke at 151 North Topanga Canyon Boulevard, Topanga California 90290, United States. You agree to negotiate with us in good faith about your problem or dispute. If for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction within 60 days after our receipt of your written dispute, you agree to the dispute resolution provisions below.
All disputes arising out of, relating to, or in connection with these Terms and Conditions or your use of the Website that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court will be resolved through binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that you and Le Marke are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute-resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). The AAA’s rules are available at http://www.adr.org/consumer or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with these Terms and Conditions of Service. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator selected by the AAA. Arbitrations will be held in Miami, Florida.
If the claim is for $10,000 or less, the party initiating the arbitration may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (2) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules.
Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be limited to those fees set forth in the AAA Rules with the remainder paid by us. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the arbitration is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Le Marke for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award all remedies available under applicable law, the arbitral forum's rules, and these Terms and Conditions of Service. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Le Marke.
You and Le Marke waive any constitutional and statutory rights to go to court and have a trial in front of a judge or a jury. Rather, you and Le Marke elect to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. In any litigation between you and Le Marke over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, you and Le Marke waive all rights to a jury trial and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Le Marke may bring an individual action in small claims court.
This agreement to arbitrate will survive the termination of your relationship with Le Marke.
To the extent the parties are permitted under these Terms and Conditions of Service to initiate litigation in a court, both you and Le Marke agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to the Terms or the use of the Products will be litigated exclusively in the federal and state courts located in Los Angeles County, California. You and Le Marke consent to the personal jurisdiction of both courts.
In order to avoid irreparable injury to Le Marke, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by you of the provisions of this Agreement, we shall be entitled to seek an injunction or other equitable relief restraining such breach. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as prohibiting us from pursuing any other remedies available to us for such breach or threatened breach, including the recovery of monetary damages from you.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings arising from any matter involving this Website, your use of this Website or your purchase of products through this Website, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. This means that we each agree to arbitrate in our individual capacities only, not as a representative of a class, a member of a class, or a Private Attorney General. Likewise, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Except to the extent they are preempted by U.S. federal law, the laws of the State of Florida, without giving effect to its principles of conflicts of law, shall govern all disputes arising out of these Terms and Conditions.
