PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) govern your access or use of the ToneItUp.com and my.toneitup.com website (the “Website”), the Tone It Up software application, and any other applications, websites, content, products, and services (collectively, the “Service”) made available by Tone It Up, Inc., or its representatives, affiliates, officers, or directors (collectively, “TIU,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). By using or accessing the Service, you agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use the Service or use TIU’s products or services, and, if applicable, cancel your registered user account or subscription with us.
PLEASE READ: THESE TERMS CONTAIN A MANDATORY ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS BY REQUIRING ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND TIU, SUBJECT TO LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, TO BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND REQUIRING YOU TO FORGO JURY TRIALS, CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS, AND ALL OTHER TYPES OF COURT PROCEEDINGS OF ANY KIND. UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT FOLLOWING THE OPT-OUT PROCEDURES IN SECTION 2 BELOW, YOU WILL BE BOUND BY THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. BY ENTERING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND EXPRESSLY AGREE TO THE MANDATORY ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Binding Arbitration & Class Action Waiver
Mandatory Binding Arbitration:
By agreeing to these Terms, you agree that all disputes, claims, or causes of action arising from or related to the Services or these Terms, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof (collectively, “Disputes”), will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration and not in a court of law in any jurisdiction, and not in a class, collective, representative, or consolidated action or proceeding, as further set forth below.
You and TIU agree that the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9, U.S. Code) (the “Act”) shall govern any controversy or claim related to the Service or the Terms, including the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in these Terms. It is the parties’ intent that the Act and the rules promulgated by JAMS Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services (“JAMS”) shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. You and TIU further agree that the arbitrator (“Arbitrator”), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes concerning the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether this Agreement, in whole or in part, is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Class Action Waiver:
You acknowledge and agree that you and TIU are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Unless both you and TIU agree in writing, any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement set forth in this Section 1 shall be deemed null and void in its entirety, and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes on a class basis.
Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all Disputes through arbitration, you and TIU each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyright rights, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
You can choose to reject this Arbitration Agreement by sending us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”) within 30 days following the date you first agree to these Terms, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at Tone It Up, Inc., 1110 Manhattan Avenue, Manhattan Beach, California 90266. If mailed, the Opt-Out Notice must be post-marked no later than 30 days following the date you first agree to these Terms. To be effective, the Opt-Out Notice must contain your name, address, and signature. If you opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of the Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may enter with TIU.
Rules & Procedures:
Arbitration proceedings will be administered in accordance with the Act and the rules promulgated by JAMS and any supplementary rules then in effect (the “JAMS Rules”), except as modified by these Terms. Discovery in said arbitration shall be limited in scope to the specifics of liability on the Dispute, and any discovery related to damages calculations or any financials shall be withheld until after liability has been decided by the arbitrator(s). In the event of any inconsistency between the JAMS rules and this paragraph, the terms of this paragraph shall control.
Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, online, or in person in in Los Angeles, California or at another mutually agreed location. All Disputes shall be resolved by one arbitrator; however, for Disputes exceeding $5,000,000, upon your or TIU’s request, the Dispute shall be decided by three Arbitrators. 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 finds your Dispute frivolous.
All arbitration hearings shall commence within ninety (90) days of the demand for arbitration and close within ninety (90) days of commencement and the award of the Arbitrator(s) shall be issued within thirty (30) days of the close of the hearing. However, the Arbitrator(s), upon a showing of good cause or by the parties’ agreement, may extend the commencement of the hearing for up to an additional sixty (60) days. The Arbitrator(s) shall provide a concise written statement of reasons for the award. The arbitration award may be submitted to any court having jurisdiction to be confirmed and enforced. The Arbitrator(s) will have the authority to decide whether any Dispute is barred by the statute of limitations and, if so, to dismiss the arbitration on that basis. For purposes of the application of the statute of limitations, the service on JAMS under applicable JAMS Rules of an arbitration demand is the equivalent of the filing of a lawsuit. The Arbitrator(s) shall have the power to award legal fees pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. This paragraph does not limit the right of TIU to: (i) exercise self-help remedies, such as, but not limited to, setoff; (ii) initiate judicial or non-judicial foreclosure against any real or personal property collateral; (iii) exercise any judicial or power of sale rights, or (iv) act in a court of law to obtain an interim remedy, such as, but not limited to, injunctive relief, writ of possession or appointment of a receiver, or additional or supplementary remedies. Except as provided in this Arbitration Agreement, the prevailing party in any action or arbitration related to these Terms shall be entitled to its reasonable attorney fees and costs.
Changes to Arbitration Agreement:
Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 1, if TIU changes any of the terms of this Section 1 after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us a written notice of such rejection within 30 days of the of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above. This written notice must be provided either by email at email@example.com or by mail at Tone It Up, Inc. 1110 Manhattan Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266. In order to be effective, the notice must include your full name, address, and signature, and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this Arbitration Agreement. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and TIU in accordance with the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first agreed to the Terms (or to any subsequent changes to the Terms).
The terms of this paragraph survive any termination of the Terms.
