Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations, and all laws related to protection and transfer of data and personal identifiable information. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY; IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
For any claim, dispute, or controversy between you and us that arises out of, is related to or in connection with these Terms (individually a “Claim” and collectively “Claims”), you agree to first contact us at Contact Us and attempt to resolve the Claim informally. We hope we can resolve any Claim with you. In the unlikely event that you and Cari Studio have not been able to resolve the Claim within sixty (60) days after you contact us, then you and we each agree to resolve the Claim by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except (i) for any and all Claims related to injunctive or other equitable relief and/or any dispute relating to the enforcement or validity of your, your licensors’, our, or our licensors’ Intellectual Property Rights (discussed below); (ii) the extent that arbitration clauses are prohibited by applicable law in jurisdictions outside of the United States; or (iii) you may file a Claim in small claims court if the Claim meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE FILING PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS Cari Studio AGREES OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND Cari Studio ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, then those parts won’t be arbitrated but will proceed in court, with the rest proceeding in arbitration. If any other provision of Section 19 is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be severed but the rest of Section 19 still applies.
A. Governing Law and Jurisdiction.

Except as expressly provided herein, a party may only waive its rights under these Terms by a written document executed by both parties. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision hereof.

You acknowledge and agree that we may assign or sub-contract any of its rights or obligations under these Terms.
