15. Third Party Websites, Applications, and Services.
The Site may include links to other websites and applications operated by parties other than SalonTarget. Such links are provided for Your reference only, and SalonTarget does not control such websites and are not responsible for their content. SalonTarget’s inclusion of any links to such websites or applications does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or applications or any association with their operators. SalonTarget assumes no liability whatsoever for any such third-party websites, applications or any content, features, products, or services made available through such third-party websites or applications.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site will be resolved by binding arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. 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 (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms and Conditions of Use as a court would. To begin an arbitration proceeding, You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to info@SalonTarget.com. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, in Boston, Massachusetts. The Parties each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration each Party waives any right to a jury trial. The Parties also agree that SalonTarget may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
17. Applicable Law.
By using the Site, You agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this User Agreement and any dispute of any sort that may arise between You and SalonTarget.
Any of the terms of this Agreement which are determined to be invalid or unenforceable shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability, without rendering invalid or unenforceable any of the remaining terms of this Agreement or affecting the validity or enforceability of the Agreement as a whole. Failure to insist on performance of any of the terms of the Agreement will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default. No waiver by SalonTarget of any right under this Agreement will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. You may not assign, transfer or delegate your rights or obligations hereunder, in whole or in part. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of each of the parties and the parties’ respective successors and permitted assigns. This User Agreement contains the entire agreement between You and SalonTarget regarding the use of the Site, and supersedes any prior agreement between You and SalonTarget on such subject matter. The Parties acknowledge that no reliance is placed on any representation made but not expressly contained in this User Agreement.
