      1. Disputes

      Please contact our Consumer Engagement team with any concerns by utilizing the Contact page on this Site. Any disputes and claims between us that cannot be resolved by our Consumer Engagement team will be resolved in accordance with this dispute resolution provision.

      Any dispute or claim related in any way to your use of or otherwise arising out of our Site, including any products purchased through our Site or your participation in any promotional activities, will be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court, except as specified below.Claims for public injunctive relief (as defined by law) are not subject to this mandatory binding arbitration provision. Similarly, in lieu of arbitration, you may assert claims in small claims court having jurisdiction if your claims qualify.

      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).

      You may opt out of these dispute resolution procedures by email: legal@maison9wine.com to request the opt out form. Your completed opt out form must be received by Maison No. 9 within 30 days of the date when you first accept these Terms of Use, or it will not be valid.

      The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”). The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Maison No. 9 will reimburse those fees for claims demanding less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Maison No. 9 will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Unless we agree otherwise, the arbitration hearing will take place in the county of your billing address.

      We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial and agree that such claim may be brought only in the state and federal courts located in Sacramento County, California. This provision will survive any termination of these Terms of Use.

      1. Governing Law and General

      The Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal arbitration laws and the laws of the State of California, USA, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Maison No. 9.

      These Terms of Use, and the other policies posted on our Site, constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Site. Maison No. 9’s failure to exercise any right under these Terms of Use does not operate as a waiver of such right. All section titles are for convenience and do not affect the meaning of any provision. All uses of “including” or “includes” may not be interpreted as limiting. If any provision is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision is deemed severable and will not affect any remaining provision.
