DISPUTES

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Bants product and/or services, or to any In-House Products or services sold or distributed by Bants or through Bants.co.uk Website will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms & Conditions as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered address in the United States by registered post and on letter-headed paper with verifiable contact details: Shoppable Inc., 410 E Santa Clara St, San Jose, California, 95113 - if these conditions are not met, we cannot guarantee co-operation in your dispute.

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $100 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Bants will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

The above does not apply to disputes with members, if you have an issue arising with an individual seller or buyer, those are to be resolved between yourselves with no liability and will not constitute any involvement of Bants and/or its owners and/or operators. Please refer to the above Terms & Conditions of what Bants may provide to authorities arising in disputes between two members (sellers v buyers). You are responsible for all legal proceedings, costs and gathering of information, and any applicable witness statements.

APPLICABLE LAW

By using any Bants product and/or service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms & Conditions and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Bants.
