CHOICE OF LAW; JURISDICTION AND VENUE

These Terms of Use shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey without regard to its conflict of laws rules. Any legal proceedings against Gemma’s Living that may arise out of, relate to, or be in any way connected with the Website or these Terms of Use shall be brought exclusively in the state and federal courts of New Jersey located in Morris County and you hereby waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION; BINDING ARBITRATION

In the Dispute Resolution Section only, “we” and “us” are used to refer to you and Gemma’s Living together.

A. We each agree to first contact the other party with any disputes and provide a written description of the problem, all relevant documents/information, and the proposed resolution. You agree to contact us with disputes by contacting us at the address provided in these Terms of Use. We will contact you based on the contact information you have provided us.

B. We each agree to finally settle all disputes (as defined and subject to any specific exceptions below) only by arbitration. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. However, just as a court would, the arbitrator must honor the terms and limitations in these Terms of Use and can award the same damages and relief. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. We each also agree as follows:

i. “Disputes” are any claims or controversies against each other related in any way to the Website, Website Content or these Terms of Use – this includes claims you bring against our officers, directors, employees, partners, successors, agents, affiliates, subsidiaries and their related companies, and claims Gemma’s Living may bring against you.

ii. If either of us wants to arbitrate a dispute, we agree to send written notice to the other party providing a description of the dispute, previous efforts to resolve the dispute, all supporting documents/information, and the proposed resolution. We will send notice to you based on the contact information you have provided us and notice to us must be sent to: Gemma’s Living, LLC, 1 Bridge Plaza North, Suite 275, New Jersey 07024. We agree to make attempts to resolve the dispute. If we cannot resolve the dispute within forty-five (45) days of receipt of the notice to arbitrate, then we may submit the dispute to formal arbitration.

iii. The FAA applies to these Terms of Use and this arbitration provision. We each agree that the FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.

iv. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its arbitration rules. If any AAA rule conflicts with these Terms of Use, these Terms of Use will apply. You can obtain procedures, rules and fee information from the AAA at 1-800-778-7879 or www.adr.org.

v. The arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator and will take place in Morris County, New Jersey. The federal or state law that applies to these Terms of Use will also apply during the arbitration.

vi. We each agree not to pursue arbitration on a classwide basis. We each agree that any arbitration will be solely between you and us (not brought on behalf of or together with another individual’s claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in court.

vii. The prevailing party in the arbitration will be entitled to recover its costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and experts’ fees, which are incurred in connection with the arbitration.

C. Either of us may bring qualifying claims in small claims court.

NO CLASS ACTIONS

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.

NO TRIAL BY JURY

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.

AMENDMENT; ADDITIONAL TERMS

A. We reserve the right in our sole discretion and at any time and for any reason, to modify or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Website or to modify these Terms of Use.
