Section 9: LEGALLY BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISIONS.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION THOROUGLY, IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS OR WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES WILL BE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION OR IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT (TO THE EXTENT THE CLAIM QUALIFIES) AND WILL TAKE PLACE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. YOU AGREE THAT CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATIONS AND CIVIL ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, AND ANY RIGHTS TO BRING SUCH ACTIONS ARE WAIVED BY EACH PARTY.

The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

Contact us first if you have an issue with our Services.

You agree that if you have a question or concern about the Services, you will contact us first in writing, prior to initiating any legal proceeding. Our customer support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern. Our email is sowempowerment@gmail.com or you may write by post to the address provided in our contact information.

If a dispute can’t be resolved between us, it must be resolved through arbitration.

In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve your concerns, you and we each agree to resolve all disputes and claims between you and us, including any arising under or relating to these Terms, your use of the Services, or your and our relationship, through binding arbitration or (to the extent the claim qualifies) in small claims court, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. As explained below, the appointed arbitrator will have authority to enter all relief that would be available in court, to the extent warranted by the claims. All arbitrations and small claims proceedings will proceed only on an individual basis. In no event may either we or you seek to resolve a dispute with the other as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review. Only the appointed arbitrator – and not any court – will have the authority to resolve any dispute relating to this Section, including any dispute regarding the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of these Terms. This arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms and any other agreement between you and us. These Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and the interpretation and enforcement of this section is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding the choice of law set forth below.

Our agreement to arbitrate applies to almost all claims.

  1. This agreement to arbitrate applies to all legal disputes between you and us. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) all claims relating to any aspect of the relationship between you and us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms and/or your use of the Services.
  2. Notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, you or we may choose to bring: 
  3. an action on an individual basis in small claims court (to the extent the applicable claim qualifies); or 
  4. enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims relating to theft, infringement, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court in the U.S. Patent or Trademark Office to protect your or our Intellectual Property Rights. "Intellectual Property Rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights.
  5. In addition, the portion of any dispute or complaint relating to our participation in the US-EU or US-Swiss Privacy Shield Frameworks is subject to the Dispute Resolution section of our Privacy Policy before being subject to this Section.

How the arbitrator will be selected.

We each agree to use the “rank and strike” process for selecting an arbitrator.  In this process, the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will propose at least ten candidates to potentially serve as the arbitrator.  We will each respond directly to AAA (without copying one another) in a writing that (i) “strikes” up to three of those candidates, that is, removes them from further consideration, and (ii) ranks the remaining candidates in order of preference. AAA will average each of our rankings for each arbitrator and select as the arbitrator the candidate with the highest ranking. 

Mutual agreement to not bring a class action.

  1. YOU AND SOCIETY OF WILDFLOWERS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY (IF WARRANTED) ISSUE ALL OF THE SAME RELIEF THAT WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN COURT, INCLUDING PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, IN FAVOR OF THE PARTY SEEKING SUCH RELIEF, BUT ONLY TO THE EXTENT AUTHORIZED BY LAW AND WARRANTED BY THE PARTY’S CLAIMS. 

You and we each acknowledge that different arbitrations may present overlapping factual or legal issues. As such, to the fullest allowable extent, you and we each agree that in the event one of you or us initiates an arbitration against the other and we determine, in our sole discretion, that such arbitration presents one or more questions of fact or law that are also at issue in a pending arbitration between us and a third party (a “Similar Arbitration”), the arbitration involving you will, at our request, be assigned to the same arbitrator presiding over the Similar Arbitration and/or be paused until the Similar Arbitration is resolved. Any rulings in any Similar Arbitration will not be binding in the arbitration involving you.

Notice must be given when one of us intends to seek arbitration.

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute ("Dispute Notice"). The Dispute Notice to Society of Wildflowers must be addressed to the following address ("Notice Address") and must be sent by certified mail: Society of Wildflowers, c/o Ritzy Parties, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 33 Coca Foothill Ranch, California, 92610, USA. Dispute Notices to you will be addressed to a mailing, home, or payment address currently on record with Society of Wildflowers and must be sent by certified mail. No PO Boxes are permitted for the purpose of Notice. If we have no records of a physical address, our Dispute Notice may be delivered to your account email address. The Dispute Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Society of Wildflowers and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within ninety (90) calendar days after the Dispute Notice is sent, you or Society of Wildflowers may commence an arbitration proceeding. 

Rules governing any arbitration proceedings.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules, or, if the actions giving rise to the dispute or claim relate to your personal use of the Services (rather than business use), the Consumer Arbitration Rules (in each case, the "AAA Rules") of the AAA, as modified by this Section, and will be administered by the AAA and settled by a single arbitrator. (The AAA Rules are also available by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) All issues in dispute between the parties are for the arbitrator to decide, including, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this section.

Jurisdiction for Arbitration

If you are a Consumer, any arbitration hearings will take place (at your option) either in your county of residence or by videoconference or phone, except that if you are a Consumer whose residence is outside of the United States, the hearing will take place either in Orange County, California or by phone or videoconference, at your option and as permitted by the AAA Rules. If your use of the Services is or was for commercial use, then unless Society of Wildflowers and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the United States in Orange County, California for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, AAA will determine the location. If your claim is for five thousand dollars or less ($5,000USD) or less, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator or through a telephonic hearing. If your claim exceeds five thousand dollars ($5,000USD), the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All decisions by the arbitrator will be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

Responsibility of costs for arbitration and legal fees.

  1. Payment of Costs and Expenses. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by AAA will be governed by the AAA Rules, provided that if you are initiating an arbitration against Society of Wildflowers and the value of the relief sought is five thousand dollars ($5,000USD) or less, then Society of Wildflowers will advance all filing, administrative and arbitration costs and expenses imposed by AAA (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). Further, if you are initiating an arbitration against Society of Wildflowers and your claim arises from your use of the Services as a Consumer, but the value of relief sought is more than five thousand dollars ($5,000USD) and you demonstrate to the arbitrator that such costs and expenses would be more expensive than a court proceeding, then Society of Wildflowers will pay the amount of any such costs and expenses. In the event that the arbitrator determines that all of the claims you assert in arbitration were frivolous at the time they were filed or that you continued to press those claims even after receiving information demonstrating that such claims were frivolous, you agree to reimburse Society of Wildflowers for all of the costs and expenses that Society of Wildflowers and its Affiliate Owners paid related to responding to your frivolous claim, and that you would have been obligated to pay under the AAA Rules.
  2. Payment of Legal Fees. Just as in any court proceeding, each party will initially bear its own attorneys' fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration. Should either party be determined to have substantially prevailed in the arbitration, then upon such party's request, the arbitrator will award such prevailing party the reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses that it incurred in connection with the arbitration, provided that to the extent that the dispute or claim relate to your personal use of the Services (rather than business use) Society of Wildflowers will not seek to recover its attorneys' fees and expenses in an arbitration initiated by you unless the arbitrator determines that your claims were frivolous as set forth above. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the reimbursement of attorneys' fees and expenses upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

Disputes that can’t be arbitrated in accordance with this section will be governed by Applicable Law and Jurisdiction.

In the event that any provisions above are found to be invalid or unenforceable for any claim or issue, then the entirety of this section will be null and void only with respect to such claim or issue and “Applicable Law and Jurisdiction” will apply to such claim or issue in lieu of this section.  For the avoidance of doubt, for all claims and/or issues as to which this section is not found to be invalid or unenforceable: (a) this section shall apply in full to all such claims and/or issues, and (b) arbitration of all such claims and/or issues shall commence and be completed prior to any litigation on any non-arbitrable claims, including in the event that arbitrable and non-arbitrable claims or issues present overlapping factual and/or legal questions.  

If you want to opt out of our agreement to arbitrate, you must notify us in time.

You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration or class action waiver provisions set forth above in this section by sending (from the email address we associate with you as a User) written notice of your decision to opt-out to sowempowerment@gmail.com.  Please include the following in the subject line, "ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT." The notice must be sent within twenty-one (21) days of your first use of the Services or your agreement to these Terms (whichever is later); otherwise, you will be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of these provisions. Note that if you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Society of Wildflowers also will not be bound by them.

  2. updating the "Updated" date at the top of this page; or
  3. sending you an email or message about the Modifications.
  4. Modifications that are material will be effective thirty (30) days following the "Updated" date, unless a different date is communicated in our notice to you. All other Modifications will be effective immediately.  
  5. You are responsible for reviewing any Modifications. Your continued use of the Services after any Modification will be considered your acceptance of that Modification and the updated Terms. In certain circumstances, we may seek a Modification to these Terms that will only apply to you. This type of Modification must be in writing and signed by both parties (you and Society of Wildflowers).
  6. We are constantly evolving our products and services to better meet the needs of our Users. We cannot guarantee the availability of certain product features or functionality. We reserve the right to modify, replace, or discontinue any part of the Services or the entire Services at any time and for any reason at our discretion.

Section 15: Assignment

We may, without your consent, freely assign these Terms and our rights and obligations under these Terms, whether to an Affiliate or to another entity, in connection with a corporate transaction or otherwise.

Section 16: Entire Agreement. 

Except as otherwise stated in these Terms, these Terms are the entire agreement between you and us and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, proposals, discussions, or communications between you and Society of Wildflowers on the subject matter of these Terms, other than any written agreement for Services between you and us relating to a specified event or events. No other agreements are expressed or implied.

Section 17: Applicable Law and Jurisdiction. 

These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. These laws will apply no matter where in the world you live, but if you live outside of the United States, you may be entitled to the protection of the mandatory consumer protection provisions of your local consumer protection law. 

  1. Society of Wildflowers is based in Orange County, California. Any legal action against us related to our Services and not subject to the arbitration provisions in these Terms will take place in Orange County, California. By agreeing to these Terms, you submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state or federal courts (as applicable) in Orange County, California.

Section 18: Feedback.

We welcome and encourage you to provide feedback, comments, and suggestions for improvements to our Services, as well as feedback, comments, suggestions, and ratings regarding the services of our third-party service providers (collectively, "Feedback"). Any Feedback you submit to us will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. By submitting Feedback to us, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual and permanent license to use, publish, and exploit those ideas and materials for any purpose, with or without your name, without compensation or obligation to you. We may collect testimonials, ratings, and reviews about Site Content, and the Services. These testimonials, ratings and reviews will be considered Feedback. We retain full discretion on whether, when, where, with whom, and how Feedback is shared or published.  

Section 19: Third Party Websites; Linked Accounts; Third Party Offers. 

The Services or Users may provide links to other Internet websites or resources. Because we have no control over such websites and resources, you agree that we are not responsible for the availability of such websites or resources. We do not endorse and are not responsible or liable for any Site Content, advertising, offers, products, services, or other materials on or available from such websites or resources and are not responsible for any damages or losses related to them, even if such websites or resources are connected with our Services, Affiliate Owners, or third-party service providers. For example, if you purchase additional services or an experience on our Site provided by a third party, your contractual relationship is with the third-party provider, not with us. Details of who you are contracting with will be clearly explained to you in writing in advance.

Section 20: Additional Provisions. 

If we fail to enforce any part of these Terms, that will not amount to a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms. Except as expressly set out in these Terms, the exercise by us of any of our remedies under these Terms will not preclude us from exercising our other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. No oral waiver, amendment, or modification of these Terms will be effective. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. Section titles and subtitles in these Terms, along with the italicized text following them, are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect and do not amount to legal advice. When we say Society of Wildflowers “may” or “has” the right, is permitted, authorized, or allowed to do something in these Terms, it means we may, but are not obligated to, exercise the applicable rights or options or take the applicable action, as we determine in our sole discretion. Any determinations, decisions, or beliefs by us under these Terms may be made by us in our sole discretion. As used in these Terms, “including” means “including, but not limited to.” When these Terms say that you “will” take an action, this means that you are agreeing to take the action and that you must take that action. Your obligations, duties, warranties, representations, releases, and waivers throughout these Terms are also the obligations, duties, warranties, representations, releases, and waivers of your Affiliates. No independent contractor, agency, partnership, joint venture, or other such relationship is created by these Terms. We may freely assign any of our rights and obligations under these Terms. We may translate these Terms into other languages for your convenience. If there is a conflict between the English version and a translated version, the English version will prevail.
