15.       Dispute Resolution; Informal Resolution and Formal Resolution by Arbitration/Class Action Waiver

In order to expedite and control the cost of disputes, you and COOLA Suncare agree that any legal or equitable claim relating to use of this Site or the purchase of any COOLA Suncare  product from this Site (referred to as a “Claim”) will be resolved as follows:

AInformal Resolution:

You and COOLA Suncare will first attempt to resolve any Claim informally. In the event that any dispute between COOLA Suncare and you arises out of or relates to these Terms, the applicability of these Terms to the use of any COOLA Suncare Site, or purchase of any COOLA Suncare products from this Site, or to breach or enforcement, interpretation or validity of these Terms, you and we agree to try to promptly resolve any such dispute informally. Please send a written notice describing the dispute to support@coolasuncare.com.

B.  Formal Resolution by Arbitration/Class Action Waiver: 

READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY, IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION.  You agree that any dispute, controversy or Claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, the applicability of these Terms as to the use of any COOLA Suncare Site, or the purchase of any COOLA Suncare products from this Site, or to breach or enforcement, interpretation or validity of these Terms, or the determination of the scope or applicability of Arbitration shall be governed solely by the Federal Arbitration Act.

If you and COOLA Suncare cannot resolve a Claim informally, any Claim asserted by either party will be resolved only by binding Arbitration. By agreeing to Arbitration, both you and COOLA Suncare understand and agree that all disputes shall be decided by an arbitrator and that you are waiving your rights to maintain other available resolution processes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes.  Instead of suing in court, both you and COOLA Suncare each agree to settle disputes (except certain small claims) only by Arbitration. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. The rules in Arbitration are different.  There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief, and must honor the same limitations stated in these Terms as a court would.

The Arbitration will be conducted under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures (referred to as the “JAMS Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern. You may, in Arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to the law of the governing state. If you decide to initiate Arbitration, COOLA Suncare agrees to pay the Arbitration initiation fee and any additional required deposit required by JAMS to initiate your Arbitration. You and COOLA Suncare agree to pay the costs of the Arbitration proceeding provided however that if you are a consumer you shall not be required to pay more than $250.00 of the fees or such amount as the JAMS Rules may later prescribe. All other fees, such as attorneys’ fees and expenses of travel to the Arbitration, will be paid in accordance with JAMS Rules. The Arbitration will be held at a location in your home town area if possible, unless you and COOLA Suncare both agree to another location or telephonic Arbitration. To initiate Arbitration, you or COOLA Suncare must do the following things:

(1)   Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com.

(2) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee to:  JAMS [to your local JAMS office] or to JAMS, 401 B Street, Suite 2100, San Diego, CA 92101].

 (3) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.

Special Rules in the Arbitration Proceeding. (i) The arbitrator has no authority to make errors of law and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator does so. Otherwise, the arbitrator’s decision is final and binding on all parties and may be enforced in any Federal or State court that has jurisdiction. (ii) Neither you nor COOLA Suncare shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims in Arbitration by or against other individuals or entities, or arbitrate any claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity.  THIS MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED ACTION WHATSOEVER.  Accordingly, you and COOLA Suncare agree that the JAMS Class Action Procedures do not apply to our Arbitration. A court may sever any portion of this dispute resolution provision if it finds such unenforceable. Notwithstanding the obligation to arbitrate all Claims under these Terms, you may assert an individual Claim in small claims court in lieu of Arbitration. 

16.       Limited Time to File Claims

 

You agree that you will assert any Claim arising out of your use of any COOLA Suncare Site or the purchase of any COOLA Suncare product from this Site within one (1) year after the Claim arises, or such Claim will be barred.
