YOU AND CAMELBAK, ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, RELATED COMPANIES, AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, CONTRACTORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS AND AGENTS ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THROUGH THE SITE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
A. Administration. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Section. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
B. Forum. Any arbitration arising under or relating to the Terms shall be located in Sonoma County, California. You irrevocably submit and consent to the administration of any arbitration in Sonoma County, California.
C. Authority. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. The arbitrator shall provide written findings of fact and conclusions of law in support of any arbitration award. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction, so long as such award is not inconsistent with the governing law of the Terms.
D. No Class Claims. You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR CAMELBAK, ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, RELATED COMPANIES, AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, CONTRACTORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS AND AGENTS WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
E. Arbitration Severability. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
A. Waiver. No waiver of any term, provision or condition of these Terms, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be, or shall constitute, a waiver of any other term, provision or condition hereof, whether or not similar, nor shall such waiver constitute a continuing waiver of any such term, provision or condition hereof. No waiver shall be binding unless executed in writing by the party making the waiver.
B. Severability. If any provision of these Terms is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, then such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible and the other provisions will remain fully effective and enforceable.
C. Law. These Terms are made in and shall be governed and construed by the laws of the State of California, United States of America, without reference to conflicts of laws. If you access the CamelBak Site from locations outside California or the United States, you are voluntarily and purposefully availing yourself of the laws of the State of California, United States of America, and you are solely responsible for compliance with all your local laws. Access to the CamelBak site from locations where such Site’s contents may be unlawful is prohibited.
D. Forum. All actions, claims, or disputes arising under or relating to the Terms shall be brought in the federal or state courts located in Sonoma County, California. You irrevocably submit and consent to the exercise of subject matter jurisdiction and personal jurisdiction over you by the federal and/or state courts in Sonoma County, California. You hereby irrevocably waive any and all objections which you may now or hereafter have to the exercise of personal and subject matter jurisdiction by the federal or state courts in Sonoma County, California and to the laying of venue of any such suit, action, or proceeding brought in any such federal or state court in Sonoma County, California.
