In the event of such a claim, suit, or action ("Claim"), we will attempt to provide notice of the Claim to the contact information we have for your account (provided that failure to deliver such notice shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligations hereunder).
BCN reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with BCN in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify BCN for any unconscionable commercial practice by BCN or for BCN 's negligence, fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your account, these Terms or your access to the Service, including the purchase of any items on the Service.
Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph, if you are a resident of New Jersey, you only agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold BCN and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from and against any third-party claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with your violation of these Terms.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which provides: A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, and that if known by him or her would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.
If you are not a California resident, you waive your rights under any statute or common law principle similar to Section 1542 that governs your rights in the jurisdiction of your residence.

We have the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms.
Even after your right to use the Service is terminated, these Terms will remain enforceable against you and unpaid amounts you owe to BCN for items purchased will remain due.
Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding arbitration and class action waiver.
22. NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES
These Terms are not enforceable by or for the benefit of any third party.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN THIS SECTION ("ARBITRATION AGREEMENT") CAREFULLY. IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE MOST DISPUTES WITH ILIA BEAUTY AND MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
YOU AND BCN AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE, CONTROVERSY, OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD OR DISTRIBUTED THROUGH THE SERVICE, THESE TERMS, OR CONTENT (A "DISPUTE" AS DEFINED BELOW) SHALL BE RESOLVED ONLY BY FINAL AND BINDING, BILATERAL ARBITRATION, AS DETAILED BELOW.
You and BCN agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq., and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement and govern all questions as to whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
"Disputes" shall include, but are not limited to, any claims or controversies between you and BCN against each other related in any way to or arising out of in any way from the Service or the Content including but not limited to sales, returns, refunds, cancellations, defects, policies, privacy, advertising, or any communications between you and BCN, even if the claim arises after you or BCN has terminated use of Services or a user account or these Terms. Disputes also include, but are not limited to, claims that: (a) you bring against our employees, agents, affiliates, or other representatives; (b) that BCN brings against you; (c) claims in any way related to or arising out of any aspect of the relationship between you and BCN, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, advertising claims, or any other legal theory; (d) claims that arose before these Terms or out of a prior set of Terms with BCN; (e) claims that are subject to ongoing litigation where you are not a party or a class member; and/or (f) claims that arise after the termination of these Terms. “Disputes” does not include disagreements or claims concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, claims of piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property (collectively, “intellectual property claims”).
b. Initial Dispute Resolution
Most disputes can be resolved without resort to litigation. You can reach our support department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with our support department, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
c. Binding Arbitration Process and Procedure
Except as provided herein, if we cannot resolve a Dispute informally, any Dispute will be resolved only by binding arbitration to be held in the county in which you reside. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Los Angeles, California. BCN and you further agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court in Los Angeles County, California to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must do the following: (a) write a Demand for Arbitration that includes a description of the claim and the amount of damages you seek to recover (you may find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com); (b) send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to JAMS, Two Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San Francisco, California 94111; and (c) send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to 17 Macatera Lake Forest CA 92630
The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims with an amount in controversy under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys' fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS' most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS's most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS's rules are also available at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If there is a conflict between the JAMS Rules (or the rules of the alternative arbitral forum selected by the parties) and the rules set forth in this Agreement, the rules set forth in this Agreement will govern. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. You may, in arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to your state's law.
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, BCN will pay the additional cost. BCN shall also bear the cost of any arbitration fees, unless the arbitrator finds your claims, defenses, or other fee-generating activity to be frivolous or asserted or conducted for an improper purpose. You are responsible for all other additional costs that you may incur in the arbitration including, without limitation, attorney's fees and expert witness costs unless BCN is specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law.
If BCN's or your claim is solely for monetary relief of $10,000 or less and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, the party bringing the claim may choose whether the arbitration of the claim will be conducted through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing under the JAMS Rules, solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator.
You or BCN may choose to pursue a claim in small claims court where: (a) jurisdiction and venue over you and BCN otherwise qualifies for such small claims court; (b) such claim advances only on an individual (e.g. non-class, non-representative) basis; and (c) where the claim does not include a request for any type of equitable relief. However, if you decide to pursue a claim in small claims court, you agree to provide BCN with advance notice by email to email@example.com and by mail to BEAUTY CARE NATURALS,17 Macatera Lake Forest CA 92630.
These Terms and this Arbitration Agreement do not prevent you from bringing your Dispute to the attention of any federal, state, or local government agency. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against BCN on your behalf.
d. Authority of Arbitrator
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable or whether any claims are not subject to Arbitration. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and BCN. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other proceedings or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which any award (or decision not to render an award) is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator shall follow the applicable law. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
e. Waiver of Jury Trial
YOU AND BCN HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES IN COURT (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PERMITTED HEREIN) AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and BCN are instead electing that all covered claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow these Terms as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
f. 30-Day Right to Opt Out
You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending a timely written notice of your decision to opt out. Your notice must be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and to: BEAUTY CARE NATURALS, 17 Macatera Lake Forest CA 92630 within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, the email address you used to set up your account (if you have one), your signature, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have with us, or may enter into in the future with us.
g. Parents, Subsidiaries, Affiliates
This Arbitration Agreement will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent, subsidiary, or affiliated company of BCN, or any employee, officer, director, or investor of BCN, and to any claims asserted by any of them against you, to the extent that any such claims arise out of or relate to these Terms (such as with respect to their validity or enforceability), the Service, any person's access to and/or use of the Service, and/or the provision of content, products, services, and/or technology on or through the Service.
h. Parents, Subsidiaries, Affiliates
BCN will provide thirty (30) days’ notice of any changes to this section by posting on the Service, sending you a message, or otherwise notifying you when you are logged into your account. Amendments will become effective thirty (30) days after they are posted on the applicable website or sent to you.
Changes to this section will otherwise apply prospectively only to claims arising after the thirtieth (30th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on "Changes to This Section" is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from the sections entitled "Arbitration" and "Class Waiver" and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Arbitration and Class Action Waiver sections in existence after you began using the Service.
Subject to the section titled "Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions," if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
j. Survival of Agreement
This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms or your relationship with BCN.
24. WAIVER OF CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED ACTIONS
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
BCN and you agree to resolve any dispute in an individual capacity, and not on behalf of, or as part of, any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. BCN and you further agree to not participate in any consolidated, class, or representative proceeding (existing or future) brought by any third party arising out of or relating to any dispute with a third party. If an Arbitrator or a Court determines that applicable law precludes enforcement of this Paragraph’s limitations as to a particular remedy, then the portion of the claim seeking that remedy (and only that portion of the claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court. All other claims shall remain subject to arbitration solely on an individual basis.
The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person's or entity's claims into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative proceeding (unless we agree otherwise). And, the arbitrator's decision or award in one person's or entity's case can only impact the person or entity that brought the claim, not other BCN users, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other users.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the class/consolidated/representative action waiver set forth in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class, consolidated, or representative basis, then the disputes, claims, or controversies will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated in federal court located in San Francisco, California.
If any clause within this Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions Section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from this section, and the remainder of its provisions will be given full force and effect.
This Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions Section will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent, subsidiary or affiliated company of BCN, or any employee, officer, director, or investor of BCN, and to any claims asserted by any of them against you, to the extent that any such claims is a dispute.
This Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions Section shall survive any termination of your account or the Services.
Electronic Communications. You agree to receive communications from BCN electronically, such as emails, texts, mobile push notices, or notices and message on the Service, and to retain copies of these communications for your records. You agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications and documents that BCN provides to you electronically will have the same legal effect that such communications or documents would have if they were set forth in "writing."
Assignment. You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Service account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without BCN’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent.
Force Majeure. BCN shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
Choice of Law. These Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and BCN will be interpreted in accordance with the law of the State of California and the United States of America, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without regard to any conflict-of-law or other principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
Exclusive Venue. Any claim or dispute that between you and BCN that arises out of or is related to the Service and is not subject to arbitration or eligible for small claims action, shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Los Angeles County, California, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defense of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Los Angeles County, California.
Statute of Limitations. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim arising out of or related to the Service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this statute of limitations shall not apply to residents of New Jersey.
Notice. Where BCN requires that you provide an email address, you are responsible for providing BCN with your most current email address. In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to BCN is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by these Terms, BCN’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to BCN at the following address: BEAUTY CARE NATURALS,17 Macatera Lake Forest CA 92630.
