By accessing the Services, you agree that the statutes and laws of the United States and the state of California, USA, without regard to conflicts of laws principles, will apply to all matters relating to use of the Service. You further agree that any litigation, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms shall be subject to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the state of California and that venue shall be in an appropriate state or federal court located in Los Angeles County, California. You hereby submit to the jurisdiction and venue of said courts and consent to service of process by email in any legal proceeding.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO MEDIATE AND ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH DR. SQUATCH AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
The parties agree that in the event of any all dispute, claim, suit, or controversy arising out of or in any way connected with these Terms and the use of the Service (collectively, “Disputes”), the parties shall participate in a non-binding mediation in a good faith attempt to resolve the Dispute. The parties shall split mediation costs and each party shall bear its own attorney’s fees for the mediation. The mediation shall be held in Los Angeles County, California.
Binding Arbitration. In the event non-binding mediation does not resolve the Dispute, the Dispute shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the AAA, as modified by these Terms. There shall be one (or if either party so requests, then by a panel of three arbitrators) appointed in accordance with the Rules, and you waive your rights to have any and all Disputes resolved in a court; provided, however, that this agreement to arbitrate does not extend to Disputes in which either party seeks (i) 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, (ii) the right to pursue enforcement actions through applicable U.S. federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, or (iii) injunctive relief in a U.S. court of law. The language of the arbitration shall be English. The arbitration proceedings and decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be kept confidential (and may not be disclosed) by the parties or the arbitrator(s), except to the extent necessary to compel any award made by the arbitrator(s).
No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. Any 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. There will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, 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.
Location. The location of the arbitration shall be in Los Angeles County, California.
Authority of Arbitrator(s). As limited by the AAA Rules and these Terms, the arbitrator(s) will have (i) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (ii) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator(s) do not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms, or to award punitive damages or any other damages that are not compensatory. The arbitrator(s) may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
Jurisdiction. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, to the fullest extent permitted by law you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California for the purpose of litigating all such disputes. You also waive your rights to a jury trial.
Time Limit for Claims. Any claim under these Terms must be brought within one (1) year after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. You agree to the admissibility of computer records and electronic evidence in any dispute herein.
Severability of Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. In the event the provisions in this Dispute Resolution Section are held invalid or unenforceable, then this Arbitration Section, in its entirety, will cease to apply, and the parties will not be obligated to arbitrate any Disputes.
9. Class Action Waiver
You and Dr. Squatch agree that each party may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Notwithstanding any provision in the AAA Rules to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine any dispute, claim or controversy of different persons into one proceeding. Notwithstanding the arbitration provision set forth above, if the provision regarding waiver of class, collective, representative, and private attorney general claims is found to be void or otherwise unenforceable, any such class, collective, representative, or private attorney general claims must be heard and determined through an appropriate court proceeding in any court of competent jurisdiction in Delaware, and not in arbitration.

The Program is optional and not a condition of purchase. The Program allows Users to receive SMS/MMS mobile messages by voluntarily and affirmatively opting into the Program, such as through online or application-based enrollment forms. The messages we send to you include marketing messages, and may also include cart abandon messages, as well as messages allowing you to make purchases using previously-saved account information or account information that you provide, and messaging frequency may vary. You must have a wireless device of your own, capable of two-way messaging, be using a participating wireless carrier, and be a wireless service subscriber with text messaging service.

Regardless of the opt-in method you utilized to join the Program, you agree that these Terms apply to your participation in the Program. By participating in the Program, you agree to receive autodialed or prerecorded marketing mobile messages at the phone number associated with your opt-in, and you understand that consent is not required to make any purchase from Dr. Squatch.

Message and data rates may apply. Please consult your mobile service carrier’s pricing plan to determine the charges for browsing data and sending and receiving mobile messages.

Without limiting the scope of the Program, users that opt into the Program can expect to receive messages concerning the marketing and sale of digital and physical products, services, and events. Message and data rates may apply. The Program involves recurring mobile messages, and additional mobile messages may be sent periodically based on your interaction with us. For support regarding the Program, text “HELP” to the number you received messages from or email us at email@example.com. Opt outs should be submitted in accordance with the procedures set forth above. The Program is offered on an "as-is" basis and may not be available in all areas at all times and may not continue to work in the event of product, software, coverage or other changes made by your wireless carrier. We will not be liable for any delays or failures in the receipt of any mobile messages connected with this Program. Delivery of mobile messages is subject to effective transmission from your wireless service provider/network operator and is outside of our control; Dr. Squatch is not liable for delayed or undelivered mobile messages.
