DISPUTE RESOLUTION 

Binding Arbitration

If you and Vedder Holsters cannot resolve a dispute or other Claim through negotiations, either party may elect to have the dispute or Claim finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other(s).

You acknowledge that without this provision, you would have the right to sue in court with a jury trial or to participate in a class action.

The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with its fair meaning and not strictly for or against either party.

The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, available at the AAA website www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement, Vedder Holsters will pay the AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then you will pay the arbitrator fees, in addition to any amount that exceeds the filing fees. In that case, you also agree to reimburse Vedder Holsters for all payments disbursed that are your obligation to reimburse under the AAA Rules. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to resolve, except issues relating to the enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a Court of Competent Jurisdiction to resolve. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through document submission, through telephone, or online. A request for arbitration is subject to the following conditions:

  • The arbitration may be conducted in person, through document submission, through telephone, or online. If the arbitration is conducted in person, the hearing will conducted at a JAMS facility in your area or at a JAMS facility in Florida. 
  • Selection of Arbitrator shall be made pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures or JAMS’ Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures, depending on the amount of the claim as specified herein.
  • The arbitration shall be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator under JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures. For claims exceeding $5,000.00, the arbitration shall be conducted under JAMS’ Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures Subject to the applicable JAMS procedure, the arbitrator shall allow reasonable discovery in the forms permitted by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to the extent consistent with the purpose of the arbitration. The arbitrator(s) shall have no power or authority to amend or disregard any provision of this section or any other provision of these Terms, except as necessary to comply with JAMS’ Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness. The arbitration hearing shall be commenced promptly and conducted expeditiously. If more than one day is necessary, the arbitration hearing shall be conducted on consecutive days unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties.
  • The arbitrator(s) shall, after reaching judgment and award, prepare and distribute to the parties written findings of fact and conclusions of law relevant to such judgment and award and containing an opinion setting forth the reasons for the giving or denial of any award. The award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on the parties, and judgment thereon may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction.
  • To the extent permitted by JAMS procedures, each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrators’ and administrative fees of arbitration, and we will remain responsible for its share of costs, expenses and fees plus any costs, expenses and fees required under JAMS procedures.
  • The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms. Either party also may, without waiving any remedy under these Terms, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party, pending the establishment of the arbitral tribunal (or pending the arbitral tribunal’s determination of the merits of the controversy).

 

Class-Action Waiver 

Any arbitration claims or other proceeding by or between you and us shall be conducted on an individual basis and not in any class action, mass action, or on a consolidated or representative basis. You further agree that the arbitrator shall have no authority to award class-wide relief or to combine or aggregate similar claims or unrelated transactions. You acknowledge and agree that this agreement specifically prohibits you from commencing arbitration proceedings as a representative of others. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each party waives any right to a jury trial. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
 

Governing Law and Location

Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Vedder Holsters from applying to a Court of Competent Jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary.

We and you agree that in the event of any dispute, the party wishing to address the dispute must contact the other party in writing, including by e-mail, and advise the other party of the dispute in reasonable detail as well as informing the other party of the remedy being sought. We may send you notices via the email address or physical address you provide to us, and all notices to us shall be sent to the following email address: terms@vedderholsters.com and include the words “DISPUTE NOTICE” in the subject. The parties shall then make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution. In the event that the dispute is not resolved through this procedure, the party raising the dispute may proceed to mandatory arbitration.

 

INDEMNIFICATION

Without limiting any indemnification provision of this Agreement, you (the “Indemnitor”) agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Vedder Holsters, its officers, directors, employees, agents and third parties (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) from and against any and all claims, actions, demands, causes of action, and other proceedings (individually, “Claim”, and collectively, “Claims”), including but not limited to any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) relating to or arising out of your use of or inability to use the Site or Services, any user postings made by you, your violation of any terms of this Agreement or your violation of any rights of a third party, or your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. 

The Indemnitees each have the individual right, but not the obligation, to participate through counsel of their choice in any defense by you of any Claim as to which you are required to defend, indemnify, or hold harmless any, each, and/or all Indemnitees. You may not settle any Claim without the prior written consent of the concerned Company Parties.

Effect of Termination

Any termination of this Agreement automatically terminates all rights and licenses granted to you under this Agreement, including all rights to use the Service. Upon termination, Vedder Holsters may, but has no obligation to, in its sole discretion, rescind any services and/or delete from its systems all your Personal Information and any other files or information that you made available to Vedder Holsters or that otherwise relate to your use of the Site or Service. Upon termination, you shall cease any use of the Service.

GENERAL 

Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Vedder Holsters and you concerning your use of the Site and Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms and Conditions).

Partial Invalidity. Should any part of this Agreement be declared invalid, void, or unenforceable by a Court of Competent Jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of any remaining portion of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, and the parties acknowledge and agree that they would have executed the remaining portion without including the part so declared by a Court of Competent Jurisdiction to be invalid, void, or unenforceable.

Amendments. This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of Vedder Holsters, or by the unilateral amendment of this Agreement by Vedder Holsters along with the posting by Vedder Holsters of that amended version.

No Waiver. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement, or any breach, in any one instance, will not waive that term or condition or any later breach.

Assignment. This Agreement and all of your rights and obligations under it will not be assignable or transferable by you without the prior written consent of Vedder Holsters. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.

Independent Contractors. You and Vedder Holsters are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.

No Third-Party Beneficiaries. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement, with the following exceptions: Company Parties, Indemnitees, and Vedder Holsters’ licensors and suppliers (to the extent expressly stated in this Agreement).

Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third-party rights by you would cause irreparable injury to Vedder Holsters and its licensors and suppliers and would therefore entitle Vedder Holsters or its licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief.

Headings. The headings in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall have no legal or contractual effect. Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms and Conditions shall not be construed against the drafting party.
