The Consumer Affairs Department can be contacted via postal mail at: P.O. Box 9606, Mission Hills, CA 91346-9606, Attention: Consumer Affairs Department via email at: email@example.com Please allow at least thirty (30) days for Holistic Vitamins LLC to address your complaint prior to taking further action.
Except for disputes relating to the infringement of your or Holistic Vitamins LLC’s intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, copyright and patents) or where you or Holistic Vitamins LLC are seeking a preliminary injunction (“Excluded Disputes”), you agree that all disputes between you and Holistic Vitamins LLC (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to these Terms, your use of the Sites, your purchase of any Holistic Vitamins LLC Brand product, or any Holistic Vitamins LLC Brand advertisement or promotion, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you hereby expressly waive trial by jury. Neither you nor Holistic Vitamins LLC will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement.
This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and, where consistent, California law. The arbitration will be conducted in Los Angeles County, California, in the English language by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s Rules. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either Holistic Vitamins LLC or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. At your election, desktop or telephone arbitration, if available, can be used for claims of less than $10,000. In-person arbitration hearings will be conducted at the place of your residence at the time the dispute is submitted to arbitration. Holistic Vitamins LLC will pay the costs for arbitration (not including your attorney’s fees) for claims under $5,000 where you are successful. In all other cases, you will bear 50% of the cost of any arbitration and you alone will be responsible for your attorney’s fees. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrators will not have authority to award punitive or exemplary damages.
THE SUBSTANTIVE LAWS (AS DISTINGUISHED FROM THE CHOICE OF LAW RULES) OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA SHALL GOVERN THE VALIDITY AND INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS AND ALL CAUSES OF ACTION (WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS. THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE, SHALL NOT APPLY.
You agree that any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of these Terms or the Excluded Disputes will be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action.
If any provision of these Terms if held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction or during an arbitration per the arbitration terms above, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Holistic Vitamins LLC reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment. This dispute resolution provision will survive the termination of any or all of your transactions with Holistic Vitamins LLC.
The failure of Holistic Vitamins LLC to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms or to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit Holistic Vitamins LLC’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by Holistic Vitamins LLC of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized office of Holistic Vitamins LLC, nor will such a waiver be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. Holistic Vitamins LLC may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. However, you may not assign, transfer, or sublicense these Terms except with the prior written consent of Holistic Vitamins LLC. Headings and paragraph or section titles are inserted only as a matter of convenience and do not, and shall not be used to, explain any paragraph or provision. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against Holistic Vitamins LLC by virtue of Holistic Vitamins LLC having drafted these Terms.
