9. Disclaimers of Warranties.
The Site provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis, without warranty or condition of any kind, either express or implied. Although GoodSkin seeks to maintain safe, secure, accurate, and well-functioning services, we cannot guarantee the continuous operation of or access to our Site, and there may at times be inadvertent technical or factual errors or inaccuracies. GoodSkin specifically (but without limitation) disclaims (i) any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, quiet enjoyment, or non-infringement; and (ii) any warranties arising out of course-of-dealing, usage, or trade. You assume all risk for any/all damages that may result from your use of or access to the Site. GoodSkin does not guarantee the accuracy of, and disclaims all liability for, any errors or other inaccuracies in the information, content, recommendations, and materials made available through the Site.
10. Limitation of Liability.
In no event will GoodSkin be liable to you for any incidental, special, consequential, direct, indirect, or punitive damages, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), statute, or any other legal theory, whether or not GoodSkin has been informed of the possibility of such damage. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or limitation of liability in certain circumstances. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
11. Governing Law.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law principles. Subject to Section 13, which provides that disputes are to be resolved through binding arbitration or small claims court, to the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and GoodSkin agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Los Angeles County, California, for the purpose of litigating all such disputes.
12. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration, Jury Waive and Class Action Waiver.
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and GoodSkin in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and GoodSkin agree to resolve disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction (“Agreement to Arbitrate”). Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You acknowledge and agree that the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that individual party’s claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users.
General. The parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service promptly by negotiation between individuals who have authority to settle the controversy. If good faith negotiations do not lead to an amicable resolution within thirty (30) business days of commencing negotiations, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, or the breach thereof, shall be determined by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules. The tribunal will consist of one arbitrator. The arbitration will take place in the city and country where GoodSkin’s headquarters is located. If this location is not feasible, the arbitration shall occur in a location of GoodSkin’s choosing. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings will be English. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND GOODSKIN WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR JURY. You and GoodSkin are instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and GoodSkin over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND GOODSKIN WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. YOU AND GOODSKIN AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor GoodSkin is entitled to arbitration, and all claims and disputes will be resolved pursuant to Section 20(e).
Opt-out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Section by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: 11760 San Vicente Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90049 postmarked within thirty (30) calendar days of first accepting these Terms of Service. You must include (i) your name and residence address, (ii) the email address and/or telephone number associated with your account, and (iii) a clear statement that you want to opt out of these Terms of Service’s arbitration provisions.
Exclusive Venue. If you send the opt-out notice in Section 21(d), and/or in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration agreement permits either you or GoodSkin to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms of Service in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party, and both you and GoodSkin agree that any judicial proceeding will be brought in the state or federal courts located in California.
B. No Waiver. The failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect our right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of the Terms constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself.
C. Paragraph Headers. Use of paragraph headers in the Terms is for convenience only and shall not have any impact on the interpretation of particular provisions.
D. Severability. In the event that any part of the Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect.
14. Notice to California Residents.
