TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Terms of Sale

Unless otherwise indicated, the following terms apply to all sales made by XpressMyself.com LLC dba SmartSign, its subsidiaries, and its affiliates, to you, the purchaser.  By finalizing an order and transmitting payment or receiving the goods, you agree to be bound by these terms of sale. We may modify these terms from time to time.

1. Disputes and Arbitration Agreement.

  • 1.1.

    Initial dispute resolution.

    We are available by email at customerservice@smartsign.com to address any concerns you may have regarding your purchase. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. In the event of a dispute, you agree to negotiate with SmartSign in good faith before initiating a lawsuit or an arbitration.

  • 1.2.

    Agreement to arbitrate.

    If no agreement is reached within 30 days of the time initial dispute resolution is pursued, either party may initiate binding arbitration. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Sale, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitration hearing shall take place in Kings County, NY. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply to any claims or demands filed by business entities. The AAA’s consumer arbitration rules will apply to any claims or demands filed by an individual.

    You understand that, in light of this mandatory provision, you are waiving your rights to sue in court and have your disputes resolved by a judge or jury trial. You further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

    To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost. If we are required to pay the additional cost of the filing fees, you should submit a request for payment of fees to AAA along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to AAA. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain circumstances.

  • 1.3.

    Class action and class arbitration waiver

    You agree that any arbitration will be conducted in your individual capacity, and not as a class action or other representative action. You expressly waive your right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable, or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above in section 1.2 shall be deemed void, and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes and any such class action shall proceed consistent with section 1.6 below.

  • 1.4.

    30-day right to opt out

    You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions in sections 1.2 and 1.3 by emailing us at customerservice@smartsign.com within 30 days of registering an account. By not opting out, you are required to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those sections. By opting out you agree to release SmartSign from the arbitration clause in section 1.2.

  • 1.5.

    Venue.

    To the extent that the arbitration provisions set forth in section 1.2 do not apply, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Kings County, New York.

  • 1.6.

    Applicable Law.

    You agree that the laws of the State of New York, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Sale and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and SmartSign.

  • 1.7.

    Survival.

    This section 1 will survive the termination of any or all of your transactions with SmartSign.
