THESE TERMS ARE SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS
You and us agree that the interpretation of these Terms and Conditions and any transaction executed through the Site or any other activity or content or dispute in relation to the Site and these Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy shall be governed by the laws of the State of new York, USA, and by the United States Federal Arbitration Act, without regards to principles of conflicts of laws.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your visit to APIVITA.COM/USA or to products or services sold or distributed by APIVITA or through APIVITA.COM/USA will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, and must follow these terms of use as a court would.

You may initiate a dispute with us or our affiliates by filing a dispute notice with us at info-us@apivita.com, specifying with as much detail as possible the nature of your dispute, what you request as resolution and submitting any documentation that you feel would be useful for us to review the dispute. Filing of a dispute notice does not guarantee that the dispute will be resolved and does not limit your right to request an arbitration. If we cannot resolve the dispute within 30 days of your notice, you and us agree that any claim by you against us or our affiliates or partners or by us or our affiliates against you relating to the Site or any product or services obtained through the Site shall be subject exclusively to binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will take place in the county or municipality where you have your permanent residence or where you are otherwise subject to personal jurisdiction, or such other place where we both mutually agree. You may also choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions.

You agree that you or anyone on your behalf will bring any claims against us or our affiliates in your or their individual capacity and not as plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. We agree that in any arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

We agree not to seek our attorneys’ fees from you in any arbitration that you bring against us in accordance with the foregoing unless the arbitrator determines that your claims are frivolous.

Either you or us may seek emergency injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial with respect to matters relating to the Site or APIVITA products, and all remedies will be available in any such court proceeding. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin or seek damages for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

Except as noted above, all remedies provided for in this Agreement are non-exclusive.

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to sales through the Site.

Any provision of these present terms and Privacy Policy which shall be deemed to be against law ceases automatically to be valid without in any way affecting the validity of the rest of the terms.

AMENDMENT OF THE TERMS
You acknowledge and agree that these Terms and Conditions, which include our Privacy Policy, and any additional posted terms applicable to specific features, products or services, constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between us concerning your use of this Site.

We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time on our discretion by posting the changes on the Site. Any such amendment shall be effective once the revised terms have been posted on the Site. Your continued use of the Site after the Terms and Conditions have been changed constitutes your agreement to all such modified terms and conditions. We may, with or without prior notice, terminate any of the rights granted by these Terms and Conditions. You shall comply immediately with any termination or other notice, including, as applicable, by ceasing all use of the Site. We encourage you to visit this section of our Site regularly in order for you to remain informed of any changes.
