Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action RELATING TO, arising under or out of YOUR use of the Website, INCLUDING ANY SALES MADE THROUGH THIS WEBSITE, must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.Both you and GF Butcher Shop agree, with the limited exceptions noted below, to resolve all disputes between you and GF Butcher Shop through BINDING ARBITRATION as further provided below. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. Both you and GF Butcher Shop waive the right to bring any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Website, your account, your purchases through the Website, or products purchased through the Website as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any such claim brought by anyone else.
(This waiver, which is discussed further below, is generally referred to herein as the class action waiver.)
Use of this Website, any purchases made through this Website, and any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Website, your account, your purchases through the Website, or products purchased through the Website shall be governed by the laws of the your home state of residence without respect to its choice (or conflict) of laws rules.
Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute shall be in Los Angeles, California. Each party submits to personal jurisdiction and venue in that forum for any and all purposes. If this paragraph would render any other paragraph or provision of these Terms unenforceable, then jurisdiction and venue shall instead be in your home county of residence.
These Terms provide for final, binding arbitration of all disputed claims (discussed immediately below). George Foreman’s Butcher Shop and you agree, however, that it would be advantageous to discuss and hopefully resolve any disputes before arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein are initiated. In the event of a dispute, the claimant, whether you or GF Butcher Shop, shall send a letter to the other side briefly summarizing the claim and the request for relief. If GF Butcher Shop is the claimant, the letter shall be sent, via email, to the email account last provided in connection with your purchase of a product through the Website or use of your account. If you are the claimant, the letter shall be sent to GFButcherShop.com; 4401 S. Downey Rd.; Vernon, CA 90058. If the dispute is not resolved within 60 days after the letter is sent, the claimant may proceed to initiate arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein.
Except to the limited extent noted below, use of this Website, use of your account, any purchases made through this Website, and any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Website, use of your account, and/or products purchased through the Website shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration.
The arbitration shall take place in Los Angeles County, California in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Unless either party or the arbitrator requests a hearing, the parties will submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing. The arbitrator will make an award based only on the documents. This is called a Desk Arbitration. If any party makes a written request for a hearing within ten days after the American Arbitration Association acknowledges receipt of a claimant’s demand for arbitration (or the arbitrator requests a hearing), the parties shall participate in telephone hearing. In no event shall the parties be required to travel to Los Angeles to participate in the arbitration.
If you decide to commence arbitration, the provider will require to you to pay a filing fee (which, at the time these Terms were posted, is currently $200). If your filing fee is more than $200, the Company will reimburse you for any excess fee promptly after it receives notice of your arbitration. If the arbitrator ultimately rules in your favor, the Company will also reimburse you for the $200 base fee. Finally, you may request from the arbitrator a waiver of this fee on the ground that you cannot afford it. If the arbitrator concludes that a waiver is appropriate – using the same standards that would apply if you sought waiver from the Los Angeles Superior Court or your local state court, which rules are less stringent – then GF Butcher Shop will promptly reimburse the fee after it receives notice of the arbitrator’s waiver decision. The Company will pay all of the arbitrator’s fees for hearing the matter, provided the amount claimed in your demand is less than $10,000. If your demand equals or exceeds $10,000, then responsibility for payment of the arbitrator’s fees shall be determined in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules.
If the arbitrator rules in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim and issues you an award that is greater than the value of GF Butcher Shop’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or greater than zero if no offer was made), then GF Butcher Shop will pay you the amount of the award or $1,000, whichever is greater (in addition to reimbursing you for the base fee).
This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim. The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Both you and GF Butcher Shop waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding.
If a proposed class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated notwithstanding the above prohibition and it is finally determined by the arbitrator (or a court of competent jurisdiction) that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution procedure shall be null and void.
Notwithstanding the foregoing binding arbitration procedure, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court (provided the claim otherwise qualifies for such program) as an alternative to proceeding with arbitration.
You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver specified in these Terms by doing the following. Within 15 days of making your first purchase from GF Butcher Shop, you must send a letter to GFButcherShop.com; 4401 S. Downey Rd.; Vernon, CA 90058 that specifies (1) your name, (2) your account member name, (3) your mailing address, and (4) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver specified in these Terms. All other Terms shall continue to apply to you and your account, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation. You are not required to send the letter by confirmed mail or return receipt requested, but it is recommended that you do so. Your request to be excluded will only be effective and enforceable if you can prove that the request was postmarked within the applicable 15-day deadline.Notice For California Users
