Both you and AppleClover agree, with the limited exceptions noted below, to resolve all disputes between you and AppleClover through BINDING ARBITRATION as further provided below. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Any dispute submitted to arbitration under these Terms shall be governed by the laws of your home state of residence without respect to its choice (or conflict) of laws rules.
Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute shall be in Orlando, Florida. Each party submits to personal jurisdiction and venue in that forum for any and all purposes. If this paragraph would render any other paragraph or provision of these Terms unenforceable, then jurisdiction and venue shall instead be in your home county of residence.
The arbitration shall take place in Orlando, Florida, in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Those rules are available at: http://www.adr.org.
This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim. The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Both you and AppleClover waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Consumer Arbitration Rules to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding. If a proposed class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated notwithstanding the above prohibition and it is finally determined by the arbitrator (or a court of competent jurisdiction) that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution procedure shall be null and void.
Notwithstanding the foregoing binding arbitration procedure, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court (provided the claim otherwise qualifies for such program) as an alternative to proceeding with arbitration.
You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver specified in these Terms by doing the following. Within 15 days of making your first purchase from AppleClover under these Terms, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that specifies (1) your name, (2) your account member name, (3) your mailing address, and (4) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver specified in these Terms. All other Terms shall continue to apply to you and your account, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation. You are not required to send the letter by confirmed mail or return receipt requested, but it is recommended that you do so. Your request to be excluded will only be effective and enforceable if you can prove that the request was postmarked within the applicable 15-day deadline.
You agree that AppleClover may, without prior notice, immediately terminate, limit your access to, or suspend your account based on any of the following: (a) breach or violation of these Terms; (b) upon request by law enforcement; (c) unforeseeable technical or security issues or problems; (d) extended periods of inactivity; or (e) fraudulent, deceptive, or illegal activity, or other activity which AppleClover believes is harmful to this Website or its business interests. You agree that termination, limitation of access and/or suspension shall be made in AppleClovers’ sole discretion and that AppleClover shall not be liable to you or any third party for the termination, limitation of access, and/or suspension of your account.
You may terminate your account with AppleClover and these Terms at any time by emailing us at help@AppleClover.com.
We may terminate these Terms for any or no reason at any time by notifying you through a notice on the Website, by email, or by any other method of communication. Any such termination will be without prejudice to our rights, remedies, claims, or defenses hereunder.
Upon termination you will no longer have a right to access your account or your User Content. We will not have any obligation to assist you in migrating your data or your User Content and we may not keep any back up of any of your User Content. We will not be responsible for deleting your User Content.
The following sections shall survive any termination: “Our Intellectual Property,” “Indemnification,” “Disclaimers,” “Limitations of Liability,” “Jurisdictional Restrictions,” “Release,” “Dispute Resolution: Limit on Time to Bring Claim; Arbitration of Claims; Class Action Waiver,” and “Miscellaneous.”
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and AppleClover, and govern your use of the Website and purchases made thereon.
These Terms supersede any prior agreements between you and us with respect to the Website and purchases made thereon.
These Terms and the rights, benefits and obligations contained herein are fully assignable by us and will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of our successors and assigns.
No party, nor any of the parties’ respective attorneys, shall be deemed the drafter of this agreement for purposes of interpreting any provision hereof in any judicial or other proceeding that may arise between the parties.
Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to this agreement. For the purpose of clarity, AppleClovers representatives, officers, shareholders, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, and agents are intended third-party beneficiaries.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms.
Any failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any right or provision of these Terms must be in writing.
If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the court should nevertheless endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.
The headings in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Unless otherwise expressly stated herein, the laws of the Canada and the laws of the Province of Quebec, without regard to the principles of conflicts of laws, will govern these Terms, your use of the Website, and all matters relating to your access to, and/or use of, the Website, including all disputes between you and us. You also agree that the Website shall be deemed solely based in Quebec.
“Include,” “Includes,” “Including,” “include,” “includes,” and “including” herein mean including without limitation.
