If for any reason we determine or a court of competent jurisdiction finds that any provision or portion of this Agreement to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid under applicable law in a particular jurisdiction: (a) this Agreement will not be affected in other jurisdictions to the extent that such determination or finding has no application; and (b) in the relevant jurisdiction, the remainder of this Agreement (to the fullest extent permitted by law) will continue in full force and effect.

26 – Dispute Resolution
Most disagreements or disputes can be resolved amicably through informal mediation. You can reach us at https://elsabstyling.com/contact/. Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with us and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
27 – ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER – PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
If the parties are unable to reach an amicable resolution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time the informal mediation process is initiated then you and we expressly agree that any legal dispute, claim or controversy between you and us arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Service, including without limitation disputes related to rights of privacy and/or publicity, and whether or not such dispute, claim or controversy involves a third party (each, a “Dispute”), and that the enforcement of this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section, shall be settled exclusively by binding, individual arbitration in accordance with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then current rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes (available online at http://www.adr.org).
YOU AGREE THAT REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY DISPUTE MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH DISPUTE AROSE OR BE FOREVER BARRED.
The arbitration proceedings will be held by a single arbitrator, will be confidential and in English, and this Agreement will be interpreted and construed in the English language, which is the language of the official text of this Agreement.
The arbitration proceedings will be held in New York, New York, provided however that if the value of the relief sought is U.S.$10,000 or less, either you or we may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election will be binding on you and us (subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing based on the circumstances). Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or us, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. Any in-person arbitration shall be held at a mutually agreeable location determined by you and us in accordance with the AAA rules.
The decision of the arbitrator shall be nonappealable and final and binding upon the parties hereto, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered into any court having jurisdiction. The Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1 et seq.), and not any state law concerning arbitration, governs all arbitration under this arbitration clause. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court at law or in equity but will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Agreement.
The arbitrator shall award the costs and expenses of arbitration, including attorneys’ fees, to the prevailing party as part of such party’s award, in addition to all other relief granted. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost.
YOU HEREBY UNDERSTAND, ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE OUR RIGHTS TO A TRIAL IN A COURT OF LAW.
Exception for Litigation or Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve Disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its Intellectual Property Rights. As an alternative to binding arbitration, you may bring your Dispute in “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules and if within such small claims court’s jurisdiction, provided that the small claims court does not permit class, representative, or consolidated actions, or the award of relief in favor of any person or entity that is not a named party to the small claims action.
Any proceeding to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor we will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected proceedings. You and we also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or any consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. THIS WAIVER IS MUTUAL AS BETWEEN YOU AND US.
If any part of this section, other than the class action waiver clause, is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain enforceable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if the class action waiver clause 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.
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 set forth above by sending (from the email address you used to create your User Account) written notice of your decision to opt out to https://elsabstyling.com/contact/ with the subject line, “ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your agreement to these Terms of Service; otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of this section. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, we will not be bound by them either.
28 – Dispute Resolution for Non-US Residents Only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Arbitration is Prohibited by Law
If you are a non-US resident and a tribunal in your country of residence has ruled that arbitration is prohibited by law, then you agree to the following:
(a) If any Dispute arises you and we will send a written notice of the Dispute to the other, together with a proposed resolution of it. We will send such notice to you using the e-mail in your User Account. You will send us such notice to https://elsabstyling.com/contact/
We will then attempt to amicably resolve the Dispute in good faith for a period of ninety (90) days following the date of the notice.
(b) If after such time we are unable to find a mutually agreeable resolution of the Dispute, then the state or federal courts in the State of New York shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Dispute under this section.
(c) To the maximum extent permitted by the mandatory laws in your country of residence, these Terms of Service and any Dispute arising out of or in connection with it, will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the U.S. and the State of New York without regard to its conflicts of law provisions, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
(d) The foregoing provisions of this Section will not apply to any legal action seeking an injunction or other equitable relief.
(e) You and we further agree that: TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST FILE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER DISCOVERY OF SUCH DISPUTE ARISES – OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
29 – Governing Law and Venue
This Agreement, including the validity and interpretation thereof, and the rights and obligations of the parties hereto, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York, United States of America, excluding its conflict of law provisions or rules; except for the arbitration provisions, which shall be governed by United States federal law.
In the event that the provisions regarding mandatory arbitration proceedings set forth herein are determined not to apply to you or to a particular Dispute, you agree that any such Dispute shall then be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of a state or federal court located in New York County, State of New York, United States of America, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within New York County, New York for the purpose of litigating all such Disputes. YOU IRREVOCABLY CONSENT TO THE EXERCISE OF PERSONAL JURISDICTION BY SUCH COURTS IN ANY SUCH ACTION. IN ADDITION, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, YOU IRREVOCABLY WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY OBJECTION THAT YOU MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE LAYING OF THE VENUE OF ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT AND ANY CLAIM THAT ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT HAS BEEN BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM. FINAL JUDGMENT IN ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE AND BINDING UPON YOU AND MAY BE ENFORCED IN ANY COURT IN WHICH YOU ARE SUBJECT TO JURISDICTION BY A SUIT UPON SUCH JUDGMENT.
30 – California Residents
(a) If you are a California resident, to the extent permitted by California law, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor” as well as any other unknown claims under California Civil Code Section 1542 or any statute or common law principle of similar effect.
