IMPORTANT LEGAL INFORMATION: PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, WHICH INCLUDE A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY TO ALL VISITORS TO OR USERS OF SHOEMETRO.COM AND ALL OTHER SHOEMETRO WEBSITES. REFERENCES TO “SHOEMETRO.COM” OR “THIS WEBSITE” SHALL REFER GENERALLY TO ALL OF SHOEMETRO’S WEBSITES, INCLUDING MOBILE APPLICATIONS. YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE CONFIRMS YOUR UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE.
Arbitration Agreement. By using this Web site (“Website”) you agree that all claims relating to your access or use of this Website, including all disputes arising out of, or related to, any products or services purchased from ShoeMetro (“ShoeMetro”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) through this Website, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration conducted in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of either the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”); provided that, this Arbitration agreement does not extend to claims for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights for which either party can bring suit in a court of competent jurisdiction. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s or JAMS’ applicable rules. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you may send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: ShoeMetro, Deputy General Counsel, 8960 Carroll Way, Suite 100, San Diego, California, 92121. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the United States in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed upon location.
Class Action Waiver. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT UNDER THIS AGREEMENT MUST BE BROUGHT IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS THE PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS AGREEMENT ALSO PREVENTS YOU FROM PARTICIPATING IN AN EXISTING CLASS ACTION BROUGHT BY ANY OTHER PARTY. IF THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER IS FOUND TO BE VOID OR UNENFORCEABLE, THE DISPUTE SHALL BE RESOLVED IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION.
