  12. DISPUTE RESOLUTION – BINDING ARBITRATION AND WAIVER OF CLASS CLAIMS. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Charm Industrial in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Charm Industrial agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with these Terms of Use will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement with you to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms of Use. You understand and agree that, by entering into these Terms of Use, you and Charm Industrial are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Notwithstanding the paragraph immediately above, you and Charm Industrial agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims not otherwise precluded by these Terms of Use. Any arbitration between you and Charm Industrial will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (or such subsequently adopted rules modifying such procedures) of the American Arbitration Association ("collectively, the "AAA Rules"), subject to any modification by these Terms of Use and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified mail or nationally recognized overnight courier (signature required), or, in the event that we do not have a current physical address on file for you, by email ("Notice"). Charm Industrial's address for Notice is: email: contact@charmindustrial.com. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Charm Industrial may commence an arbitration proceeding. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in San Francisco County, California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance-based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits. YOU AND CHARM INDUSTRIAL AGREE THAT YOU EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Charm Industrial agree otherwise, you will not request the arbitrator or court to consolidate more than one person's claims, or to otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the Terms of Use must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate services, third-party content or third-party software.
