i. Limitation of Liability.
IN NO EVENT SHALL COLUMBIA, ITS DIRECTORS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANY PURCHASE MADE ON THE SITES. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, COLUMBIA’S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID FOR THE PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS FROM THIS SITE.
HOWEVER, THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISIONS SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY CLAIMS, DAMAGES, COSTS OR EXPENSES ARE THE RESULT OF COLUMBIA’S OWN NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, WILLFUL INJURY OR WILLFUL VIOLATION OF LAW.
j. Dispute Resolution
ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM BETWEEN YOU AND COLUMBIA, its agents, employees, successors, assigns, direct and indirect subsidiaries, and any third party providing any products or services to you in connection with your purchase RELATING IN ANY WAY TO OR ARISING IN ANY WAY FROM YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCT FROM COLUMBIA, ANY PRODUCTS SOLD BY COLUMBIA OR THROUGH THE SITES, OR THESE TERMS OF SALE (INCLUDING THEIR INTERPRETATION, VALIDITY, TERMINATION OR BREACH) WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or these Terms of Sale is void, voidable or otherwise invalid
THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES), AND MUST FOLLOW THE TERMS OF THESE TERMS OF SALE AS A COURT WOULD.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you may send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent or to Columbia at Columbia Brands USA, LLC, Attn: General Counsel, 14375 NW Science Park Drive, Portland, Oregon 97229. You agree that the arbitration will be conducted by and in accordance with the rules of either the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), adr.org, 1.800.778.7879, or the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), jamsadr.com, 1.800.352.5267. Such arbitration shall proceed either in the county in which you reside or Multnomah County, Oregon. You can contact AAA or JAMS to find out more information on how to commence an arbitration proceeding. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s or JAMS’ applicable rules. Columbia will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000. Likewise, Columbia will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
WE EACH AGREE TO BRING ANY DISPUTE IN ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY, AND NOT ON A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE ACTION BASIS. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER. IN ADDITION, WE BOTH AGREE THAT WE EACH MAY BRING SUIT IN COURT TO ENJOIN INFRINGEMENT OR OTHER MISUSE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA OR JAMS RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR COLUMBIA WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
k. Applicable Law and Venue
These Terms of Sale and your use of the Sites shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon, applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed within the State of Oregon, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any action not filed in arbitration pursuant to these Terms of Sale shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in Multnomah County, Oregon and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any such suit, action or proceeding.
If any provision of these Terms of Sale shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Sale and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
