    14.   DISPUTES

    Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access and use of this Site, or to any products or services sold or distributed through this Site 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.

    For all disputes whether pursued in small claims court or arbitration, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve your claim by sending a written description of your claim to Smith Optics Customer Service and to the Legal Department at 300 Lighting Way Suite 400 Secaucus, NJ  07094. We each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. If we are unable to resolve the claim within 60 days after we receive this claim description, you may pursue your claim in arbitration (or in small claims court, if applicable). We each agree that if you fail to timely pay amounts due, we may assign your account for collection, and the collection agency may pursue through any lawful means, including in small claims court, claims limited strictly to the collection of the past due amounts and any interest or cost of collection permitted by law.

    Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, Smith Optics Legal Department 300 Lighting Way Suite 400 Secaucus, NJ  07094. The arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator mutually agreeable to both of us. If we cannot agree on the selection of an arbitrator within 30 days of the date that the request for arbitration was received by Corporation Service Company, the Dispute will be arbitrated by JAMS arbitration services. Unless we agree to use a different set of rules, the arbitrator will use the applicable JAMS arbitration rules. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-JAMS.   

    Upon filing of the arbitration request, we will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for the arbitration proceeding. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys' fees. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we 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 PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR AS A MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. WE EACH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PROSECUTE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. WE EACH MAY SEEK RELIEF ONLY ON BEHALF OF OURSELVES AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO REMEDY OUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS. THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER IS A MATERIAL AND ESSENTIAL PART OF AND CANNOT BE SEVERED FROM THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION. THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION ARE NOT ESSENTIAL PARTS OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CAN BE SEVERED FROM IT BY A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. IF A CLAIM

    OR ACTION PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.  

     

    15.   GOVERNING LAW 

    Access to or use of the Site shall not be construed as Smith's purposeful availment of the privilege or benefits of doing business in any state or legal jurisdiction other than the State of New York. These Terms, and any claim or action arising out of or relating to these Terms, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the State of New York without regard to conflicts of law provisions. If any claim or action proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, sole and exclusive jurisdiction for any such claim or action shall be in the state courts of the State of New York for the County of New York and the federal courts for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

     

    MISCELLANEOUS

    These Terms constitute the entire, full and complete agreement between yourself and Smith with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter. You agree that Smith shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site.  Each section, paragraph, part, term, and/or provision of these Terms shall be considered severable; and if, for any reason, any provision herein is determined to be invalid and contrary to, or in conflict with, any existing or future law or regulation by a court or agency having valid jurisdiction, such provision shall not impair the operation, or have any other effect upon, other provisions of these Terms as may remain otherwise intelligible, and the latter shall continue to be given full force and effect to bind you and Smith; and said invalid provisions shall be deemed not to be part of these Terms.  No waiver by Smith of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.  The waiver of any right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Smith. 

    We will not be liable or responsible to you, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached these Terms, for any failure or delay in our performance under these Terms when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, governmental actions, war, invasion or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lockouts, strikes or other labor disputes (whether or not relating to our workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown or power outage.
