BECAUSE Colavosalon IS NOT INVOLVED IN THE ACTUAL INTERACTIONS BETWEEN PROFESSIONALS AND CLIENTS OR IN THE PROVISION OF ANY STYLING SERVICES, YOU HEREBY RELEASE AND FOREVER DISCHARGE Colavosalon AND ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND LICENSORS FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, DAMAGES (ACTUAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, CONTINGENT OR LIQUIDATED, ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO ANY DISPUTE OR INTERACTIONS WITH ANY OTHER USER, WHETHER ONLINE OR IN PERSON, WHETHER RELATED TO THE PROVISION OF STYLING SERVICES OR OTHERWISE.
To expedite resolution and the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to these Terms of Service ("Dispute"), you and Colavosalon agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is your billing address, with an email copy to the email address you have provided to Colavosalon. Colavosalon's email address for such notices is at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you and Colavosalon are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, all claims arising from use of the Services (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF EITHER PARTY ELECTS TO ARBITRATE, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share or arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules). If your claim for damages does not exceed USD 10,000, Colavosalon will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms of Service, you and Colavosalon may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Claims where mandatory arbitration is prohibited by a valid, non-preempted law, including claims under the Private Attorney General Act of 2004, California Labor Code 2698 et seq. ("PAGA") to the extent waiver of such claim is deemed unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, are not covered by this arbitration provision. Nothing in this arbitration provision will prevent either party from bringing an individual action in small claims court or to seek injunctive or other equitable relief on an individual basis in a federal or state court in San Francisco County, California, with respect to any dispute related to the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's intellectual property or proprietary rights.
You and Colavosalon agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between Colavosalon and you individually. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND Colavosalon ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Colavosalon otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
Arbitration will take place in San Francisco County, California. You and Colavosalon agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the California state and Federal courts located in San Francisco, California have exclusive jurisdiction and you and Colavosalon agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
You may opt out of the foregoing arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision of these Terms of Service by notifying Colavosalon in writing within 30 days of the date you first registered for the Services or a Subscription or 30 days from the date these Terms of Service were last updated. To opt out, you must send a written notification to Colavosalon at Colavosalon, Inc., 218A Clara Street, San Francisco, CA 94107 Attention: Legal, that includes (a) your user identification, (b) your name, (c) your address, (d) your telephone number, (e) your email address and (f) a clear statement indicating that you do not wish to resolve claims through arbitration and demonstrating compliance with the 30-day time limit to opt out of the above arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver sections.
You and Colavosalon agree that, other than as set forth under the subsection entitled "Waiver of Right to be a Plaintiff or Class Member in a Purported Class Action or Representative Proceeding" in Section 15 above, if any portion of Section 15 entitled "Dispute Resolution" is found illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be severed and the remainder of these Terms of Service will be given full force and effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the subsection entitled "Exceptions to Alternative Dispute Resolution" in Section 15 is found to be illegal or unenforceable, neither you or Colavosalon will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of that subsection that is found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within San Francisco, California, and you and Colavosalon agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
Except as expressly provided otherwise, these Terms of Service are governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the State of California, without regard to choice of law principles.
Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, the enforceability of Section 15 entitled "Dispute Resolution" shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16).
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Company and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, partners and licensors from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs, debt and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from or relating to: (i) your use of and access to the Services; (ii) Styling Services facilitated by the Services or any interaction between you and another user; (iii) your violation of any term of these Terms of Service; (iv) your violation of any rights of a third party, including without limitation any copyright, intellectual property, or privacy right; or (v) any third-party claims or damages relating to death, personal injury or emotional distress arising from or related to use of the Services. This defense and indemnification obligations will survive the termination of these Terms of Service and your use of the Services.
By using the Services, you may receive information about Clients or other third parties. You must keep such information confidential and only use it in connection with the Services. You may not disclose or distribute any such information to a third party or use the information for marketing purposes unless you receive the express consent of the Client or other third party.

However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
