You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Perricone MD®, its subsidiaries, parents and affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, contractors, representatives, content providers and service providers, from and against any and all losses, claims, obligations, liabilities, damages, settlements, costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, consequential damages, incidental damages, special damages, disbursements and attorneys' fees, including attorneys' fees incurred from counsel selected by Perricone MD® in its sole discretion) arising from or relating to any actual or threatened claim, suit, action, proceeding, governmental investigation or enforcement action based upon or arising out of: (a) your breach of the Agreement; (b) your Feedback; (c) any violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations; and/or (d) any use by you of the Perricone MD® Offerings, or use of the Perricone MD® Offerings by a third party by and through an Account or computer owned by you.

The provisions of this Section are for the benefit of Perricone MD®, its parents, subsidiaries and/or affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, members, employees, agents, shareholders, licensors, suppliers and/or attorneys. Each of these individuals and entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against you on its own behalf.
Dispute Resolution Provisions
In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under the Agreement, Perricone MD® will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys' fees if it substantially prevails. The Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in the State of California, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California (without regard to conflict of law principles). Where there is a dispute between Perricone MD® and you arising out of or related to the Perricone MD® Offerings, the terms and conditions of the Agreement or the breach of same by any party hereto (including the manner in which Perricone MD® contacts you): (a) the parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties; and (b) you agree to first commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice which can be found Here[INSERT LINK]. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer after receiving your Initial Dispute Notice (“Final Settlement Offer”). If we provide you with a Final Settlement Offer and you do not accept it, or we cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, you can submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties, in your county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which is also available Here[INSERT LINK]. For claims of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. If the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our Final Settlement Offer, then we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if you retained an attorney to represent you in connection with the arbitration, we will reimburse any reasonable attorneys' fees that your attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude any party from: (i) seeking injunctive relief in order to protect its rights pending an outcome in arbitration; and/or (ii) pursuing the matter in small claims court rather than arbitration. Although we may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we will not seek such an award from you unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous.
To the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that you may have against Perricone MD® and/or its employees, officers, directors, members, representatives and/or assigns. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in the suit. You agree to pay the attorney's fees and court costs that Perricone MD® incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (A) does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (B) is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these Dispute Resolution Provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first access the Site.
You represent and warrant that you: (a) are eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority in your jurisdiction, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age) or older; (b) are not under any legal or other disability which limits your ability to comply with these terms and conditions; (c) will not infringe upon any third party's proprietary and/or intellectual property rights in connection with the Perricone MD® Offerings; and (d) will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in connection with the Perricone MD® Offerings.
The failure of either party to exercise, in any respect, any right provided for hereunder will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of the Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
No agency, partnership, joint venture or employment relationship is created as a result of the Agreement and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Perricone MD® in any respect whatsoever.
Should any part of the Agreement be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
Other than for payment obligations arising hereunder, neither party will be liable for, or will be considered to be in breach of, the Agreement on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by the Agreement as a result of any causes or conditions that are beyond such party's reasonable control and that such party is unable to overcome through the exercise of commercially reasonable diligence. If any force majeure event occurs (which shall include, without limitation, acts of God, telecommunications, Internet or network failure, results of vandalism or computer hacking, fire, storm or other natural occurrences, any conflicting order, direction, action or request of the federal, state and/or local governments or of any regulatory department, agency, commission, court or other instrumentality, or of any civil or military authority, national emergencies, insurrections, riots, wars, strikes, work stoppages or other such labor difficulties), the affected party will give prompt written notice to the other parties and will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the impact of such event. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties' obligations to one another shall be excused and/or postponed during and only for the duration of the applicable force majeure event and shall resume as soon as practicable after the force majeure event has ended.
You may not assign the Agreement or your rights and obligations thereunder to any third party without the prior express written approval of Perricone MD®. Perricone MD® may assign the Agreement and/or its rights and obligations hereunder to any third party, without your prior written consent. The provisions of the Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, and their respective heirs, administrators, successors and permitted assigns.
