11) Termination of Use

HBI may, in its sole discretion, change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Website at any time with or without notice, including the availability of any Website feature, database, or Content. HBI may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts of the Website, or the entire Website, with or without notice, and without liability, at any time, in HBI’s exclusive discretion, for any reason or purpose, including, but not limited to, conduct that HBI believe violates these Terms of Use or other policies or guidelines posted on the Website. Upon any termination of these Terms of Use, you shall immediately discontinue your use of the Website and destroy all materials obtained from it.

12) Dispute Resolution/Mandatory Arbitration/No Class Actions

These Terms of Use or any claim, cause of action or dispute arising out of or related to the Terms of Use or your use of the Website shall be governed by the laws of the state of California, regardless of where you access the Website, and notwithstanding any conflicts of law principles. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply.

You and HBI agree to resolve any disputes between us in accordance with this Section 12. If you believe that HBI has not adhered to the Terms of Use or you have any dispute with HBI, please contact us. We will do our best to address your concerns and each party agrees to attempt to resolve any disputes with the other amicably.

Except as provided herein, you and HBI agree that we will resolve any disputes between us that we cannot resolve as provided above through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings.  All such controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and HBI relating to the Website or the Terms of Use (each a “Dispute”) shall be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”).  If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an available alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) and the rules of such provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration. The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator.  The arbitrator’s decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.  The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs, documents, or other evidence submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.

For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, AAA (or ADR Provider, if applicable), you and HBI must abide by the following rules:  (a) the arbitration will be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration will 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 (or ADR Provider, if applicable) rules and the hearing (if any) will be held in Los Angeles County, California, unless the parties agree otherwise on a specific location.

If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, HBI will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive.  In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.

This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or HBI from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies.  You and HBI also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court.  In addition, you and HBI retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms of Use, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms of Use.

Neither you nor HBI may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Dispute. Disputes may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis.  The arbitrator can decide only your and/or HBI’s individual Disputes.  The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.

If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect.  No waiver of any provision of this Section will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement.  Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of these Terms of Use.  This Section will survive the termination of the Terms of Use or your relationship with HBI.

13) General

These Terms of Use, together with the HBI Privacy Policy and any other legal notices published by HBI on the Website, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and HBI concerning the Website, your use thereof and any products or services purchased via the Website. If any provision of these Terms of Use is deemed invalid by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect to the maximum extent permitted by law. No waiver of any term of these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and HBI’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
