    Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusions or limitations set forth above, in which case, the full extent of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply.
  2. INDEMNIFICATION

    You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless PGA from and against any actual or threatened claim, loss, liability, proceeding, third-party discovery demand, investigation, damages, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with: (a) your use or misuse of the Services; (b) your conduct in connection with the Services or with other third parties via the Services; (c) your violation of the Terms or Privacy Policy; and (d) your violation of any third-party rights, including, without limitation, any intellectual property right or privacy right of such third party.

You agree not to settle any matter subject to an indemnification by you without first obtaining PGA’s prior express written approval.
  3. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
     
    1. Agreement to Arbitrate: Most customer concerns can be resolved by calling customer service department at 1-212-380-4433 or emailing [email protected] In the event that you and PGA are unable to resolve any dispute or claim with one another, you and PGA each agree to resolve any and all disputes and claims through binding individual arbitration, unless you expressly reject this arbitration provision in writing and within 30 days in accordance with subsection (J) below. “Disputes and claims” shall be broadly construed to include past, current, and/or future claims that relate in any way to these Terms, your use of the Services, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity. However, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of New York.
    2. Class Action Waiver: You hereby waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Any arbitration under this provision will take place on an individual basis — class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You also agree not to participate in claims against PGA brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account. However, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. If, however, you or we transfer or appeal the small claim to a different court, we reserve our right to elect arbitration.
    3. General Information: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery, and is subject to limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, including attorneys’ fees where permitted by law.
    4. Notice of Arbitration: A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to PGA should be addressed to PIAGGIO GROUP AMERICAS, Inc., 257 Park Avenue South, 4th Floor, New York 10010. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and PGA cannot resolve the Demand within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or PGA may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by PGA or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, that you or PGA is entitled to.
    5. Administrator: The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules.
    6. Venue: Any arbitration hearing that you attend must take place at a location reasonably convenient to your residence.
    7. Expenses: You and PGA will bear the administrator and arbitrator fees that each party is normally required to pay under the rules and law applicable to the proceeding. Each party will bear the expense of its own attorneys, experts, and witnesses, except where applicable law and/or the Agreement allows a party to recover attorney’s fees from the other party.
    8. Governing Law: The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs this arbitration agreement. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and claims of privilege. The arbitrator shall not apply federal or state rules of civil procedure or evidence. The arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies, or awards that conflict with these Terms, unless otherwise provided by applicable law. Either party may make a timely request for a brief written explanation of the basis for the arbitration award. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. Otherwise, the award and the arbitration proceeding shall be kept confidential. The arbitrator's decision is final and binding, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA. Either party can appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by the administrator. The costs of such appeal will be borne by the appealing party, unless applicable law or the administrator’s rules provide otherwise.
    9. Survival; Severability: This arbitration provision survives the termination of your relationship with PGA and/or your use of the Services. In the event of a conflict between this arbitration provision and the applicable arbitration rules or other provisions of the Terms, or any other agreement between us, this arbitration provision will govern any Dispute or Claim between you and PGA, as defined in these Terms. If a court or arbitrator deems any part of this arbitration provision invalid or unenforceable under any law or statute consistent with the FAA, the remaining parts of this arbitration provision shall be enforceable despite such invalidity; however, if the prohibition of class relief and proceedings in subsection (B) is found to be unenforceable or void in any proceeding, then this entire arbitration provision (except for this sentence) shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding, subject to the right to appeal such limitation or voiding.
    10. Opting Out: In order to reject this provision, PGA must receive a signed writing (“Rejection Notice”) from you within 30 days of the date that you first accept these Terms (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). The Rejection Notice must include your (i) name, (ii) account number or username, (iii) mailing address, and (iv) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with PGA through arbitration, and must be mailed to PIAGGIO GROUP AMERICAS, Inc., 257 park Avenue South, 4th Floor, New York 10010via certified mail, return receipt requested. Rejecting the arbitration provision will not affect any other aspect of the Terms, nor will it affect any other existing or future arbitration agreement between you and PGA.
  4. CHANGES TO THE SERVICES OR TERMS

    PGA reserves the right to make changes to its Services and/or Terms at any time and for any reason, so please re-visit this page frequently. If PGA makes material changes to the Terms, then PGA will notify you by posting a notice on the Services on the Sites. All changes are effective as of the date indicated at the top of this page (“Last Updated”), and your continued use of the Service(s) after the indicated date will constitute acceptance to be bound by those changes. If PGA, in its reasonable discretion, believes that any of the Services or Terms must be amended in order to comply with any legal requirements, the amendments may take effect immediately or as required by law and without any prior notice.
    PGA reserves the right to stop, temporarily or permanently, the operation of any and all Services without notice, on a general or specific basis, at any time.

This shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
