- Severability; Interpretation
If any provision of this Agreement is deemed void, unlawful, or otherwise unenforceable for any reason, that provision will be severed from this Agreement and the remainder of this Agreement will remain in force. When used in this Agreement, the term "including" will be deemed to be followed by the words "without limitation".
- Applicable Law; Jurisdiction; Individual Arbitration; Waiver of Jury Trial; and Class Waiver:
All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the domestic laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law.
iHerb and You (collectively the “Parties” and individually a “Party”) further agree that the following agreement to arbitrate is part of an agreement made in interstate commerce and is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, and that on questions of the constructive, validity, enforcement, or interpretation of the agreement to arbitrate, the FAA shall control. You and iHerb Entities agree to arbitrate, on an individual basis, any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or in any way related to this Agreement, including but not limited to claims based on contract, tort, negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions. It is expressly intended that the iHerb shall have the ability to enforce this arbitration agreement. EACH PARTY IS GIVING UP (WAIVING) ITS RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND TO HAVE ANY CONTROVERSY, CLAIM OR DISPUTE HEARD BY A JUDGE OR JURY.
YOU AND IHERB ENTITIES EXPRESSLY AGREE TO ARBITRATE ANY CONTROVERSY, CLAIM OR DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT. THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE ALSO APPLIES TO THRESHOLD ARBITRABILITY ISSUES, INCLUDING ISSUES RELATED TO WHETHER THE AGREEMENT IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR ILLUSORY AND ANY DEFENSE TO ARBITRATION.
THE PARTIES ALSO AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION MAY ONLY BE BROUGHT IN YOUR AND OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, NOT AS A CLASS, PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. IF ANY PORTION OF THIS CLASS WAIVER PROVISION IS HELD INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE, IT SHALL NOT BE SEVERED, AND THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATION SHALL BE UNENFORCEABLE.
The mutual promise by you and iHerb Entities to arbitrate these disputes, and to do so on an individual basis, rather than to litigate before the courts or other bodies, provides the mutual consideration for this agreement to arbitrate.
Either Party may exercise the right to arbitrate by providing the other Party with written notice of any and all claims forming the basis of such right in sufficient detail to inform the other Party of the substance of such claims, and a demand to arbitrate those claims. In no event shall the request for arbitration be made after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claims would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations.
Unless you and iHerb otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside by a single neutral arbitrator agreed to by the Parties or, if one cannot be agreed upon, pursuant to the then-current American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) Consumer Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be in accordance with the then- current AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (available online at www.adr.org.) or, if those rules are no longer available, the applicable rules selected by the arbitrator; provided, however, that no rules permitting class, collective, or other representative arbitrations shall be used. In the event of any conflict between this agreement to arbitrate and the rules governing the arbitration, the terms of this agreement to arbitrate shall control.
The Parties are entitled to representation by an attorney or other representative of their choosing, and at their own costs. Each Party shall pay its own attorney fees. The parties agree to abide by and perform any award rendered by the arbitrator; provided, however, that the arbitrator shall not have the authority to award punitive or exemplary damages or to issue injunctive or other equitable relief. The arbitrator shall issue the award in writing and therein state the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
The failure of iHerb to enforce your strict performance of any term of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such term and will not be considered a waiver or limit that party's right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Agreement. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to the use of the Site or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or such claim or cause of action will be permanently barred. The "Liability Disclaimer" provisions of this Agreement are for the benefit of iHerb Entities as defined herein, and each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against your on its own behalf.
