Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver

Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.

Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by contacting us at info@alliedbeautyexperts.net. This Provision facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and ABE. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. Please read this Provision carefully. It provides that all Disputes between you and ABE shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees). For the purpose of this Provision, “ABE” means The Allied Beauty Experts and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and ABE regarding any aspect of your relationship with ABE, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as ABE’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding. WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.

Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution

For all Disputes, you must first give ABE an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to info@beautyexperts.net. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If ABE does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration.


Exclusions from Arbitration; Right to Opt Out

Notwithstanding the above, you or ABE may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Provision by mailing written notification to ABE, info@alliedbeautyexperts.net. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with ABE through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Provision will have no adverse effect on your relationship with ABE. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.


Arbitration Procedures

If this Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either you or ABE may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Provision. For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. Location of Arbitration — you or ABE may initiate arbitration in either Denver County, Colorado or the federal judicial district that includes your billing address. In the event that you select the federal judicial district that includes your billing address, ABE may transfer the arbitration to Denver County, Colorado in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs you incur as a result of the transfer, as determined by the arbitrator. Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs — both parties will split all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with ABE as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.


Severability

If any clause within this Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect.


Termination.

ABE may discontinue, suspend or terminate your access to the App, the Site, the Services and/or your account, without notice or liability for any violation of these Terms or for any other use of the Site, the App, the Services or the Materials that ABE, at its sole discretion, deems improper. ABE may also discontinue offering the Site, the App, the Materials or any of the Services, or may modify any portion of the Site, the App, the Materials or the Services at any time with or without notice to you.


General

ABE’ failure to enforce any term of these Terms shall not be deemed as a waiver of such term or otherwise affect ABE’ ability to enforce such term at any point in the future. These Terms are the entire agreement between you and ABE and supersede all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements between you and ABE about the Site and/or the App. The proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, representations made by you, indemnities, limitations of liability and general provisions shall survive any termination of these Terms.
