10.     Dispute and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver; Choice of Law

a.    Arbitration Agreement; Class Waiver; Waiver of Trial by Jury. Please read this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It is part of your contract with lh&co and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

i.    Informal Resolution. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by writing to our customer service department at lexhade@lexhadeandco.com or lh&co, Attn: Lex Hade, 229 Jackson Street, Columbus, OH 43206. In the unlikely event that our customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction, the terms of this Section 10 govern dispute resolution between us.

ii.    Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes in connection with the Agreement or the use of any product or service provided by lh&co that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and lh&co, and to any of lh&co's licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Agreement. Arbitration Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of this arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with this Arbitration Agreement (“Arbitration Rules”). The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800- 778-7879. Any hearing will be held in a location within one hundred (100) miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States (in which case hearing will be held in the capital of your country), and unless the parties agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

iii.    Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and lh&co, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non- monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and lh&co.

iv.    Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. 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 the event any litigation should arise between you and lh&co in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND lh&co WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.

v.    Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. In the event that this subparagraph is deemed invalid or unenforceable neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead claims and disputes shall be resolved in a court located in Los Angeles County, California.

vi.    30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: lh&co, Attn: Legal Department, 229 Jackson Street, Columbus, OH 43206, 30 days of purchasing any Product or Good. If you send this notice, then the Arbitration Agreement will not apply to either party and you must litigate pursuant to subparagraph xii below. If you do not send this notice, then you agree to be bound by this Arbitration Agreement.

vii.    Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

viii.     Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with lh&co.

ix.     Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in the Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if lh&co makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to the lh&co

x.     Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding this Section 10, either you or lh&co may bring an individual action in small claims court.

xi.     Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court (except for actions brought in small claims court), the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Los Angeles County, California for such purpose.

b.     Choice of Law: This Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Ohio, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules. Foreign laws do not apply. If any provision of the Agreement is invalid under the law of a particular jurisdiction, that provision will not apply in that jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded from this Agreement.

11.     Electronic Communications; General Terms

a.     Electronic Communications: Whenever you visit our Site or send emails to us, you are communicating with us electronically.

You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

b.     General Terms: lh&co may issue a warning, temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate any Customer’s right to use or access all or any part of the Site or other Services including any account thereon, without notice, for any reason in lh&co’s sole discretion, including without limitation breach of this Agreement, lh&co’s belief that such access would violate any applicable law, rule or regulation or would be harmful to the interests of, or potentially cause financial loss or legal liability to lh&co or another user of the Services. This Agreement and the Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and lh&co regarding its subject matter. lh&co will not be responsible for failures to fulfill any of its obligations due to causes beyond its control. The failure of lh&co to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Subject to Section 10a(v), if any part of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to maintain the intent of this Agreement, and the other parts will remain in full force and effect. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The parties shall at all times and for all purposes be deemed to be independent contractors and neither party nor its agents may bind the other party. The parties acknowledge and agree that this Agreement and all related documents that may be drawn up are only valid in the English language. This Agreement shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on any third parties, except that each indemnified lh&co Party shall be a third-party beneficiary hereunder. lh&co may assign or transfer its rights, or delegate any performance, under this Agreement to a third party in its sole discretion. Customer may not assign or otherwise transfer its rights, or delegate its performance, under this Agreement to any third party without in each and every case, lh&co’s express prior written consent. All terms which by their nature are intended to survive any termination of this Agreement, or any termination of your use of the Site, other Services, Content, Products or Goods shall survive such termination.
