- Dispute Resolution, Jurisdiction, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
For any dispute or Claim against Karmic Circles, you agree to first email us and attempt to resolve the dispute or Claim with us informally. To send us an email, use the “Contact Us” link located on our website or mobile applications. In the unlikely event that we cannot resolve a dispute or Claim after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any dispute or Claim (excluding any Claims brought by Karmic Circles for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the breach or alleged breach thereof, the Service or Content, either in small claims court in the United States (and specifically in Santa Clara County, California, as agreed to below) or by binding arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Clara County, California, unless you and Karmic Circles agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall award to the prevailing party, if any, as determined by the arbitrator its costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. For any small claims matters, we each agree such Claims shall be brought exclusively in the small claims courts in Santa Clara County, California (to the extent permissible under the Santa Clara County small claims courts) and the parties consent to personal jurisdiction in the Santa Clara County small claims courts.
Nothing in this Section shall prevent Karmic Circles from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction, including to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights. You agree to submit exclusively to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Santa Clara County, California for any such action.
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE EACH AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

Section headings are for convenience only and shall not be part of the terms and condition of this Agreement.
If either party fails to insist upon or enforce strict performance by the other party of any provision of the Agreement, or to exercise any right under the Agreement, such a failure will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of such party’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Karmic Circles’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
