ABOUT THE SERVICES
Filosano provides an online marketplace for users to purchase sustainable products sold by vendors listing through the Site (“Vendors”). Users may browse or search the Site to find items regarding which they wish to gather information and to identify items the User may wish to purchase. To purchase an item, Users submit an order through the Site to the vendor selling the item the User wishes to purchase. The User then provides payment information to a third party payment processor who processes payments. The applicable Vendor will then ship the purchased item directly to the User. Filosano does not own or sell the items listed on the Site, so the contract for sale of the purchased item is directly between Users and the applicable Vendor.

USER CONSENT TO RECEIVE COMMUNICATIONS IN ELECTRONIC FORM
Dispute Resolution – Arbitration, No Class Action
Such arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco, California in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect, including the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules, before a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with such rules and applying the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions. Judgment upon any award rendered therein may be entered and enforcement obtained thereon in any court having jurisdiction. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator shall have authority to grant any form of appropriate relief (other than punitive damages), whether legal or equitable in nature, including specific performance. Filosano and you agree to abide by all decisions and awards rendered in such proceedings. Such decisions and awards rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and conclusive. All such controversies, claims or disputes shall be settled in this manner in lieu of any action at law or equity. By agreeing to arbitrate, you are agreeing to waive your right to a jury trial.
If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send written notice to Filosano of your intent to arbitrate (“Notice”). The Notice to Filosano should be clearly labeled “Notice of Intent to Bring Dispute to Arbitration” and be sent by email to Filosano at email@example.com.

YOU 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 FILOSANO AND YOU EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
Notwithstanding the above, Filosano and you also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court for injunctive relief, including to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
