GOVERNING LAW/JURISDICTION AND VENUE
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., without regard to conflicts of laws principles, as if this were a contract entered into and wholly performed within the State of California. Any disputes or differences between the parties arising out of these Terms which the parties are unable to resolve themselves shall be submitted to and resolved by arbitration as provided hereinbelow. Notwithstanding the arbitration obligations, The Flower Pot shall be entitled to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction located in Los Angeles, California and you consent to personal jurisdiction of any court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles, California. Access to or use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this paragraph.
This Agreement requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limits the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute. Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Except for a claim by The Flower Pot of infringement or misappropriation of its patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret and/or The Flower Pot’s ability to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, any and all disputes between you and The Flower Pot arising under or related in any way to these Terms must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. It includes, but is not limited to, all claims and disputes relating to your use of the Site. You agree that by entering into these Terms, you and The Flower Pot are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. You and The Flower Pot 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 or representative proceeding. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, you and The Flower Pot must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in Los Angeles, California. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles, California. Any arbitration proceedings held hereunder shall be confidential.
ATTORNEY’S FEES AND COSTS
Should it become necessary for any party to these Terms to bring a claim in arbitration and/or litigation to enforce any provision herein, or for damages on account of any breach of these Terms, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party or parties all costs and expenses incurred in the arbitration and/or litigation, which includes but is not limited to the recovery of reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs.

- The information is truthful and disclosure of the information does not violate the legal rights of others.
GENERAL LEGAL PROVISIONS
If any provision in these Terms is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect, and the invalid unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision. To the extent allowed by law, the English language version of these Terms is binding and all other translations are for convenience only.
No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. You may not assign your rights under this Agreement to any party; we may assign our rights under this Agreement without condition. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns. All rights not expressly granted herein are hereby reserved.
