20. Governing Law
21. Dispute Resolution: Arbitration, Class Action Waiver and Jurisdiction
(a) Except as provided in paragraph (f), any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, counts, claim, or cause of action) between you and Aritzia or Aritzia’s employees, agents, successors, or assigns, shall exclusively be settled through arbitration, except that you or Aritzia may take claims to small claims court if the dispute qualifies for hearing by such a court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT, AND REVIEW BY A COURT IS LIMITED.
(c) You and Aritzia must abide by these rules: (i) THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION; (ii) you and Aritzia will pay the arbitration costs as required by AAA's rules, and in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Aritzia will pay as much of your arbitration filing and hearing fees as the arbitrator deems is necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (iii) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (iv) 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) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (vi) each party shall pay its own attorneys' fees and costs unless the claim(s) at-issue permit the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation costs, and in such instance, the fees and costs awarded shall be determined by the applicable law.
(d) The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you and Aritzia may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, subject 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 Aritzia, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
(e) You and Aritzia agree to first attempt to negotiate any dispute informally for at least 30 days before initiating any proceedings. Such informal negotiations commence upon receipt of written notice from one party to the other ("Notice of Dispute"). Notices of Dispute must: (a) include the full name and contact information of the complaining party; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Aritzia will send its Notice of Dispute to your billing address or to your e-mail address (if you provided it to Aritzia). If, however, you have not provided Aritzia with a billing or e-mail address, Aritzia is not required to send a Notice of Dispute to you. You will send your Notice of Dispute to Aritzia's Customer Care representatives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(g) With the exception of subpart (i) in paragraph (c), if any part of this dispute resolution provision is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the balance of this dispute resolution provision shall remain in effect and be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, or illegal provision were not contained. If, however, subpart (i) in the paragraph (c) is found invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then neither you nor Aritzia shall be entitled to arbitration.
(h) Except as provided in paragraph (f), if for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute shall be exclusively brought in Vancouver, in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, and you and Aritzia consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
