IF YOU LIVE IN (OR YOUR PRINCIPAL PLACE OF BUSINESS IS IN) THE UNITED STATES, PLEASE READ THE BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. IT AFFECTS HOW DISPUTES BETWEEN US WILL BE RESOLVED. THESE TERMS OF USE ALSO LIMIT THE TIME FOR BRINGING ANY ACTION CONCERNING THE SITES AND THE INTERACTIVE SERVICES. YOU CAN REVIEW THOSE PARTS OF THESE TERMS OF USE.

 

These are the terms of use ("Terms of Use") for your use of services or features on the sites owned and controlled by LARITZY Inc. (“LARITZY”), including www.LARITZY.com (the "Site"). We may add additional Sites from time to time as we expand our beauty offerings and these Terms of Use will govern those new Sites when added. You may be accessing our Sites from a computer or mobile device (through an iPhone application, for example) and these Terms of Use govern your use of our Sites and your conduct, regardless of the means of access. You may be using our interactive services ("Interactive Services"), such as our Ratings & Reviews (the "RR Service"), the Question & Answer service (the "Q&A Service") or a photo submission program and these Terms of Use govern your use of those Interactive Services.

 

We also like to interact with you on third party sites where we post content or invite your feedback, such as www.facebook.com/LARITZY, www.twitter.com/LARITZYbeauty, www.instagram.com/laritzycosmetics ("Third Party Sites"). Our Terms of Use and other areas of our Sites provide guidelines ("Guidelines") and rules and regulations ("Rules") in connection with our Interactive Services, including services that involve Third Party Sites, but LARITZY does not control those Third Party Sites, and these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and our Rules do not apply to companies that LARITZY does not own or control, or to the actions of people that LARITZY does not employ or manage. You should always check the terms of use posted on Third Party Sites.

 

By using the Sites, you signify your agreement to these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy and our Guidelines and Rules, whether or not you have read them. If you do not agree with any of these, you should not use our Sites.

 

LARITZY reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in the Terms of Use, Guidelines and Rules at any time, without notice and in its sole discretion. If LARITZY decides to change these Terms of Use, LARITZY will post a new version on the Sites and update the date set forth above. Any changes or modifications to these Terms of Use, Guidelines or Rules will be effective upon posting of the revisions. Your continued use of the Sites following posting of any changes or modifications constitutes your acceptance of such changes or modifications and if you do not agree with these changes or modifications, you must immediately cease using the Sites. For this reason, you should frequently review these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and Rules and any other applicable policies, including their dates, to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Sites.

These terms of use apply unless they conflict with your state law, in which case they do not apply to you and you may have additional rights under your state law.

General

Subject to the paragraph below about arbitration, any claim or dispute between you and LARITZY that arises in whole or in part from the Sites or the Interactive Services shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Montreal, Quebec. If any provision of these Terms of Use is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and LARITZY's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. It is the express wish of the parties that these Terms of Use and all related documents be drawn up in English.

 

Mandatory Arbitration

This Mandatory Arbitration section applies if you live in the United States (or your principal place of business is there). IF ANY DISPUTE ARISES BETWEEN LARITZY AND YOU RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF USE (EXCEPT FOR IP CLAIMS DESCRIBED BELOW), WE BOTH AGREE THAT THE DISPUTE WILL BE SETTLED ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION. This means that neither LARITZY nor you will sue in court before a judge or jury, individually or as a class member. Instead, one neutral arbitrator will decide the dispute, and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only for the individual claims between LARITZY and you.

 

The arbitration will be administered by a Quebec court., (or if it fails or declines to serve, another similar service or organization agreed to by LARITZY and you, or appointed by the court if the parties cannot agree), in accordance with its rules of practice and procedure. The arbitrator will be bound to follow applicable federal and state laws and regulations in deciding all issues and in rendering any award. The parties will be entitled to invoke the rules of discovery applicable to Quebec court proceedings. The arbitration proceedings will be conclusive and not appealable, and any party to any award rendered in any arbitration proceeding will be entitled to have judgment entered on that award. Arbitration will take place in Montreal, Canada, and will be held in English. Each of us will pay our own attorneys’ fees and expenses and one-half of the arbitrator’s fees and expenses.

This Mandatory Arbitration section does not apply to disputes about the enforcement or validity of LARITZY’s or your intellectual property rights, or the intellectual property rights of our respective licensors.

 

You may reject any change we make to this Mandatory Arbitration section by sending us notice within 30 days of the change by mail to LARITZY’s address in the Applicable Law section. If you do, the most recent version of this Mandatory Arbitration section before the change you rejected will apply.

 

Class Actions Waiver.

LARITZY AND YOU AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE, INCLUDING ARBITRATION AND LITIGATION IN COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED INDIVIDUALLY ONLY. Neither of us will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, a class-wide arbitration, a private attorney-general action, or any other proceeding in which either of us acts or proposes to act as a representative for others. LARITZY and you also agree that no arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another arbitration or proceeding without the written consent of LARITZY, you, and every other party to that arbitration or proceeding.

 

TIME LIMIT TO BRING CLAIMS

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, YOU AND LARITZY AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITES AND THE INTERACTIVE SERVICES MUST BE BROUGHT WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

 Modification of Terms of Use:

We may change the Terms of Use at any time for any reason by updating this posting. You are responsible for periodically reviewing these Terms of Use for revisions. Changes in the Terms of Use will be effective when posted. If LARITZY makes a material change, LARITZY will notify you here in this Terms of Use Agreement or by any other means we deem appropriate. LARITZY may determine, in its sole discretion, in good faith, what constitutes a "material change" using common sense and reasonable judgment. Your use of the Site after we have modified this posting will constitute your acceptance of any changes.
