PLACING AN ORDER; ACCEPTANCE

After receiving an order, we will send you an e-mail acknowledging that we have received your order (“Order Confirmation”).

All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email confirming the shipment of your order (the “Shipping Confirmation”). A contract with us will be formed only when you receive the Shipping Confirmation. The contract will relate only to those products and services whose shipment we have confirmed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products or services which may have been part of your order in the same or a separate Order Confirmation.

Certain provisions of these Terms and Conditions may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages at this Website.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, any claim, controversy or dispute arising out of or relating to the Site or any other Service, these terms or any other policies or other terms incorporated herein (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, enforceability, validity, or rights under any of any of the foregoing) (each, a “Dispute”) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, USA, without regard to its choice of law principles.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you and Halston Heritage each agree to submit exclusively to confidential, binding arbitration in the event of a Dispute. The arbitration will be held in Los Angeles, California on an individual basis and not as a class action. In the event that arbitration is not permitted by applicable law: (i) the parties expressly agree that any Dispute will be brought and heard solely and exclusively in the federal or state courts of competent jurisdiction located in City of Los Angeles, California and (ii) the parties waive any plea or defense that such courts of are not the appropriate venue or that they are not subject to personal jurisdiction of such courts.
To the fullest extent permitted by law and subject to the terms of the paragraph above regarding California jurisdiction and venue: (i) you expressly waive any right you may have to arbitrate a dispute as a class action; and (ii) you also expressly waive your right to a jury trial. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS. You may obtain a copy of the rules of JAMS by contacting the organization. Each of us shall agree on one arbitrator to conduct the arbitration and to use the JAMS Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, the arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the JAMS rules. Each party shall be responsible for its own attorney, expert and other fees, unless such fees are awarded by the arbitrator to the prevailing party.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, to the extent either party in any manner has violated or threatened to violate the other party’s intellectual property rights, the non-breaching party may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or provincial or federal court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on all parties. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not any state or provincial law concerning arbitration, governs all arbitration under this clause. Any court having jurisdiction may enter judgment on the arbitrator’s award. If any part of this clause, other than waivers of class action rights, is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain enforceable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if the waiver of class action rights contained herein is not enforceable as to any person or persons, such non-enforceability shall apply to such person or persons only, and all other persons shall continue to be governed by the Arbitration Clause.
Giving Up Right of Class Action
As stated above, to the fullest extent permitted by law, these terms provide that all Disputes will be resolved by binding arbitration and not in court or by jury trial. IF A DISPUTE IS ARBITRATED, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST THE HALSTON HERITAGEPARTIES INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. WITHOUT LIMITATION, THIS INCLUDES GIVING UP YOUR RIGHTS TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AS SET FORTH IN ANY STATE OR PROVINCIAL STATUTE.
Additional Limit on Claims
Except as otherwise prohibited by law, any Dispute must be brought within one (1) year from the date the cause of action arises.
To the extent that any portions of Section 17 are prohibited by law (including, without limitation, as may be prohibited by the laws of the Provinces of Quebec and Ontario, Canada).
