(each, “App Provider”), will not be responsible for any damages arising out of the failure of a Luxuryfriendy Service to operate as intended.

- Limitation of Liability
In no event will Luxuryfriendy be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages (Including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses) Arising out of or relating to your access to or use of, or your inability to access or use, the site, app, service, coaching or any materials or content on the service, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (Including negligence), statute or any other legal theory, whether or not Luxuryfriendy had been informed of the possibility of such damage. You agree that the aggregate liability of Luxuryfriendy to you for any and all claims arising out of relating to the use of or any inability to use the site, app, coaching, and service (Including any materials or content available through the service) Or otherwise under these terms, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, is limited to the greater of (I) The amounts you have paid to Luxuryfriendy for access to and use of the service in the 12 months prior to the claim or (II) $500. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages. Accordingly, the above limitation may not apply to you. Each provision of these terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is to allocate the risks under these terms between the parties. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions contained in the terms is severable and independent of all other provisions of these terms. The limitations in this section will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpose.
- Governing Law
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Kentucky without regard to conflict of law principles. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and Luxuryfriendy agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Jefferson County, Kentucky for the purpose of arbitration, litigation, and all other dispute resolution.
- Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
You agree that this dispute resolution and arbitration provision is important. You and Luxuryfriendy agree to these dispute resolution and arbitration provisions replace and substantially limit, or eliminate, your right to litigate these cases in federal or state courts, except limited grounds for enforcing the arbitration award. You and Luxuryfriendy agree that “dispute” as defined in these terms shall not include any claim or cause of action by you or Luxuryfriendy for (I) Trade secret misappropriation, (II) Patent infringement, (III) Copyright infringement or misuse, and (IV) Trademark infringement or dilution. Moreover, notwithstanding anything else in these terms, you agree that a court, not the arbitrator, may decide if a claim falls within one of these four exceptions.
22.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes expeditiously and cost effectively, you and Luxuryfriendy agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with the Site, App, Service, Materials, or otherwise related shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration shall occur in Louisville, KY and be conducted by one neutral arbitrator. Arbitration may allow for more limited discovery than court and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, and any court of competent jurisdiction may enforce a ruling by the Arbitrator. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes disputes based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. You understand and agree that by using the services, site, or app you and Luxuryfriendy are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action in addition to other restrictions and limits of liability contained within these terms.
22.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding subsection 22.1, we and you both agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions related to Trade Secret Misappropriation, Patent Infringement, Copyright Infringement or Misuse, and Trademark Infringement or Dilution through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available (“Intellectual Property Infringement Claims”), (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address Intellectual Property Infringement Claims.
22.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Luxuryfriendy will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Luxuryfriendy.
22.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice”). Luxuryfriendy’s address for Notice is Luxuryfriendy LLC, 908 South 8th St., Louisville, KY 40203. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Luxuryfriendy, may commence an arbitration proceeding. Any action filed in any court shall be required to be dismissed in lieu of binding arbitration in accordance with these Terms.
22.5 Hearing. Any in person arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Jefferson County, Kentucky. If the claim is for $10,000 or less, the arbitration will be conducted (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. The payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
22.6 No Class Actions. You agree that you shall not bring claims against the Luxuryfriendy as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Except by agreement of the parties, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
22.7 Modifications. In the event that we make any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to our address for Notice), you may reject any such change by unsubscribing from the Service.
22.8 International Users. Our websites are controlled, operated, and administered by Luxuryfriendy from its offices within the United States of America.
