(5) Charges and Payments; Risk of Loss; Taxes
The charges, if any, for your acquisition of the Products and/or for the license and use of the Services will be as set forth on the Website and/or in the App(s), as amended from time to time. You must pay to us the charges required for the use of the Services, in cleared funds, in accordance with the instructions on the Website or in the App(s), in advance of our provision of any Services. We may vary charges for Services from time to time by posting new charges on the Website or within the App(s). However, such variations will not affect Services for which you have already paid.
Risk of loss of the Product passes to you on ShiftWear's delivery of the Product to the carrier, and you are responsible for any loss or damage to the Product from that point. Claims against a carrier for damage during shipping are your responsibility.
Except in the case of sales tax for residents of the State of New York, U.S.A, all import duties, taxes and other charges are not included in the Product price, shipping cost, or any other charges related to the Services. These charges are your responsibility. Please check with your state and country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to completing your pre-order.
Each pre-order you submit for a Product constitutes an offer to purchase that Product. In order for your offer to be eligible for ShiftWear's acceptance, you must pay the amount for the Product selected by you by any payment method designated on the Website. Payment does not guarantee acceptance of your pre-order.
When placing a pre-order for the Products, you will be required to provide certain information, such as your address and billing information. You represent and warrant that all such information is accurate, and you shall ensure that such information is kept current. ShiftWear shall have no responsibility or liability for inaccurate information or information that later becomes outdated and shall have no obligation to make efforts to determine the correct contact or shipping information. You can update your information at any time prior to your Product being shipped by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Once your pre-order is accepted by ShiftWear, it is final and non-refundable; however, refunds will be issued if the pre-ordered Products are deemed by ShiftWear as undeliverable and to the extent of available assets for refund. We are engaging in a new industry, and there is no assurance that the Products and Services will contain all of the characteristics set forth herein or in our marketing materials. We will utilize commercially reasonable efforts to deliver your pre-ordered Product on the official launch dates disclosed on the Website (as such launch dates may be extended from time-to-time in our discretion); however, we cannot guarantee delivery until such time as the Products are available and in stock. Any shipping date is an estimate only, and the actual shipping date for any accepted pre-order will depend on a variety of factors, including, without limitation, our manufacturing schedule, the date that you submit your pre-order, and the date that we accept your pre-order. ShiftWear shall not be liable for unforeseen circumstances which delay or prevent the delivery of Products pre-ordered from ShiftWear. Commencement of shipping is subject to change without notice to you. We list shipping charges for each country on the Website, and you must pay all shipping charges for the location of the address you provide. You must also pay all tariff, import, customs, tax, and other charges applicable in your jurisdiction, as discussed in Article A(5).
(7) Access to the Services
Subject to your compliance with these Terms and Conditions, you will be able to access and utilize any of the Services for which we have received payment in full in cleared funds.

Subject to your compliance with these Terms and Conditions and your timely payment for the Services, you shall have access to the Services until the Services are terminated by either ShiftWear or you in accordance with the provisions herein.

(15) Dispute Resolution - Agreement to Arbitrate
(i) Contact ShiftWear First. If a dispute arises between you and ShiftWear, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Disputes between you and ShiftWear arising from the Services may be reported to ShiftWear's customer service by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(ii) Agreement to Arbitrate. You and ShiftWear each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and ShiftWear shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding single arbitration with a single arbitrator, rather than in court. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
(iii) Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. YOU AND SHIFTWEAR AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SHIFTWEAR AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICES.
(iv) Arbitration Procedures. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator also must follow the terms of these Terms and Conditions as a court would. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Article C(15). The AAA's rules and a form for initiating arbitration proceedings are available on the AAA's website at https://www.adr.org. For consumer claimants (i.e., individuals whose transaction is intended for personal, family, or household use), the arbitration shall be held in the county which you designated as your place of residence during your registration with ShiftWear, or at another mutually agreed location. For all other claimants, the arbitration shall be held in the County of Rockland, New York, or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or ShiftWear may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and ShiftWear subject only to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or ShiftWear, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
(v) Costs of Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, unless otherwise stated in this Article C(15). You and ShiftWear will each pay their own costs and expenses. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse ShiftWear for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by ShiftWear on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.
(vi) Exceptions to Arbitration. Notwithstanding anything which could be interpreted to the contrary herein, we both agree that nothing herein shall 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.
