NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES

We and you are the only parties entitled to enforce these Terms.  These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than you and Amika.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that the payment card networks are third party beneficiaries of these Terms for purposes of enforcing provisions relating to payments, but that their consent or agreement is not necessary for any changes or modifications to these Terms.  You also agree that if we assign, transfer, or sub-contract any of our rights or obligations under these Terms to any third party in writing, such third party may enforce the Terms that are assigned, transferred, or sub-contracted.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS

WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM, OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO OUR SERVICES, PRODUCTS, THESE TERMS, INCLUDING OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND COOKIE POLICY, OR THE BREACH, TERMINATION, ENFORCEMENT, INTERPRETATION, OR VALIDITY THEREOF OR THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE (COLLECTIVELY, “DISPUTES”) WILL BE SETTLED BY CONFIDENTIAL BINDING ARBITRATION, EXCEPT THAT each party retains the right to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; and (ii) seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademark, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii) an “IP Protection Action”).  The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action will be conducted in Vancouver, Province of British Columbia  and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

You acknowledge and agree that both you and Amika are waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class representative or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding.  Further, unless we both otherwise agree in writing, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.  If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void.  Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive termination of these Terms.

We both agree that these Terms should be interpreted and enforced under the International Arbitration Rules. This section will survive termination of these Terms.

ARBITRATION RULES

The arbitration will be administered and governed pursuant to the International Centre for Dispute Resolution Canada (“ICDR”) in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The arbitrator shall be chosen by the ICDR pursuant to the list method set forth in Article 12(6) if the ICDR’s International Arbitration Rules.

DISPUTE NOTICE AND ARBITRATION PROCESS

Prior to initiating an arbitration proceeding, you must first send Amika a written statement setting forth your name, address, and telephone number, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested (“Dispute Statement”).  The Dispute Statement to Amika must be emailed to info@loveamika.ca.  If we are unable to resolve your claim within thirty (30) days, then either party that desires to initiate an arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration in accordance with the ICDR’s International Arbitration Rules.

The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes relating to Amika’s services and products, as well as all Disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, the arbitrability of any claim, as well as any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable.  Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is an IP Protection Action.

ARBITRATION LOCATION AND PROCEDURE

Unless the parties otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the province or territory where you reside. 

ARBITRATOR’S DECISION AND FEES

The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions of law upon which the arbitrator based the award.  Judgment on the arbitration may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction thereof.  The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Disclaimer of Warranties,” and “Limitations of Liability” sections above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable.  The arbitrator may award declaratory and injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.  If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.  Amika will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration. If you make a claim under a consumer protection statute, you will pay arbitration fees only to the extent those fees are no greater than the filing or initial appearance fees applicable to court actions in the jurisdiction where the arbitration will be conducted with Amika to make up the difference, if any.

RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OR REJECT FUTURE CHANGES TO DISPUTE RESOLUTION SECTION

You may elect to opt-out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding, individual arbitration procedure or waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this section by sending a written letter to Amika, at Amika, LLC., 300 Meserole Street #3, Brooklyn, New York, 11206, or by email to info@loveamika.ca, within thirty (30) days of your first visit to and use of the Site that specifies your: (i) name; (ii) mailing address; and (iii) request to be excluded from the final, binding, individual arbitration procedure or waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this section.  In the event you opt-out consistent with the procedure set forth above, all other terms and conditions of these Terms will continue to apply.  If you do not so opt-out, then the terms of this “Dispute Resolution” section will apply.

Notwithstanding the provisions of “Changes to Terms of Use” section above, if Amika changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted subsequent changes to the Terms), you may reject any such change by sending Amika written notice (including by email to info@loveamika.ca) within thirty (30) days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of our email to you notifying you of such change.  By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Amika in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

FORCE MAJEURE

In no event Amika be liable or responsible to you, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Terms or any agreement concluded with you, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any obligations of these Terms or any agreement concluded with you, when and to the extent such failure or delay of performance if caused by or results from acts beyond Amika’s reasonable control, including without limitation any (a) act of God; (b) flood, fire, earthquake, tsunami or explosion; (c) electrical, internet or telecommunication outage not caused by Amika; (d) acts of war, terrorism, hostility, sabotage, invasion, riot or other civil unrest; (e) government restrictions, actions, embargoes, or blockades; or (f) other events outside the reasonable control of Amika.

GENERAL TERMS

These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Amika and you regarding the Site, Content, services, and products that may be provided on the Site, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between you and Amika regarding the Content, services, or products provided on the Site.  If, for any reason, any provision of these Terms is deemed to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent.  Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms without such consent will be null and of no effect.  We may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction.  Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.

Any notices or other communications provided by Amika under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given:  (i) by Amika via email; or (ii) by posting to the Site.  For notices made by email, the date of receipt will be deemed the date we transmit such notice.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights.  The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Amika.  Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.

Nothing in these Terms will be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between you and Amika, and you do not have any authority to create any obligation on our behalf.
