Description of the Service
Through the Service, you can purchase fitness and lifestyle apparel from the hottest designers, purchase Carbon 38 gift cards, and learn about the latest trends in fitness, dance, wellness, and other topics. You can also indicate items that you like by clicking on the heart that appears in the upper-right corner of the particular item’s thumbnail picture. When you do so, it will be added to “My Favorites” in your account so you can keep track of the items you are interested in on the Site.
You may also provide ratings or reviews (collectively, “Reviews”) for products available on the Site. We appreciate honesty, but please keep it resh3l and clean.
When you create an account you must maintain the security of your password and accept all risk that someone may access your account without your permission. If you discover or suspect any Service security breaches, please let us know as soon as possible. You represent and warrant to us that all information that you provide in connection with your account is at all times accurate, truthful, current and complete. Carbon 38 reserves the right to deny any account at our discretion.
When you select an item to purchase, it will appear in your online shopping bag (the “Shopping Bag”). Once you have placed all items you would like to purch3n your Shopping Bag and are ready to checkout, the applicable taxes and any shipping charges will be calculated and you will see the total amount due and owing to be paid by you. All payments must be made in U.S. dollars by credit or debit account via Carbon 38’s authorized payment processor.

Governing Law; Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH CARBON 38 AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM CARBON 38.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without resort to any conflict of law provisions.
In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms or the Service, you and Carbon 38 agree to consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing your mutual interests, try to reach a solution satisfactory to both parties. If we do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, then either of us may, by notice to the other demand mediation under the mediation rules of the American Arbitration Association in Los Angeles, California. We both give up our right to litigate our disputes and may not proceed to arbitration without first trying mediation, but you and Carbon 38 are NOT required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief from the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and Carbon 38 will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding.
If settlement is not reached within 60 days after service of a written demand for mediation, any unresolved controversy or claim will be resolved by arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association before a single arbitrator in Los Angeles, California. The language of all proceedings and filings will be English. The arbitrator will render a written opinion including findings of fact and law and the award and/or determination of the arbitrator will be binding on the parties, and their respective administrators and assigns, and will not be subject to appeal. Judgment may be entered upon the award of the arbitrator in any court of competent jurisdiction. The expenses of the arbitration will be shared equally by the parties unless the arbitration determines that the expenses will be otherwise assessed and the prevailing party may be awarded its attorneys' fees and expenses by the arbitrator. It is the intent of the parties that, barring extraordinary circumstances, arbitration proceedings will be concluded within 90 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit only if failure to do so would unduly prejudice the rights of the parties. Failure to adhere to this time limit will not constitute a basis for challenging the award. Consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration, pre-hearing information exchange will be limited to the reasonable production of relevant, non-privileged documents, carried out expeditiously.
For any disputes that are not handled by arbitration, you agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles, California and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms or the use or the Service.
Enforcement of these Terms is solely at Carbon 38’s discretion. Failure to enforce any part of these Terms in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the same or other part of these Terms in other instances. If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unlawful, void or otherwise unenforceable (including the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations above), then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. The section headings of these Terms are for reference purposes only and will not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.
These Terms (and the other policies and terms referred to above) make up the entire agreement between you and us regarding the Service, and they supersede any prior agreements that may have been made.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please email us at email@example.com or send a letter to:
Carbon 38, Inc.
