DISPUTES – ****IMPORTANT, THIS AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS
We agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to Your visit to this website or to products or services sold or distributed through this website will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that You may assert claims in small claims court if Your claims qualify. 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 these terms and conditions as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class action, class arbitration, or a consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that You or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
You hereby acknowledge that these Terms and Conditions represent the entire understanding between You, Svanaco and LYNX concerning Your use of this website, and the Content, goods and services available on this website.
