17. Arbitration Agreement
In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement or the Services or any other products or services provided by us (each, a “Dispute”), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party.
IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website http://www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you reside. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent Plant People, Inc. from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect Plant People, Inc. proprietary interests.
18. Class Action Waiver
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS CUSTOMER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
19. Referral Program
In order to be eligible for the Program, you must have an active Plant People account in good standing. To participate, refer friends who have not previously purchased any products from Plant People (“Friends”) by sending them your personal referral link provided to you by Plant People (“Referral Link”). You may share your Referral Link via email, social media and other tools Plant People may provide. For each Friend who signs up for an Account through your Referral Link and purchases an order of $50+ through the Services (an “Eligible Subscription”), we will post to your Account and each applicable Friend's Account (in each case, generally within one or two days) a $10 credit, which can be applied to your next order and each applicable Friend's next paid order (for the avoidance of doubt, excluding any trial orders) (each, a “Plant People Credit”), provided that a Plant People Credit must be used within one (1) year from the date of issue or it will expire. The amount of Plant People Credits applied to one (1) transaction cannot exceed the total order amount. Please note that in order for you to receive a Plant People Credit for referring a Friend and in order for a Friend to receive a Plant People Credit for signing up for an Account and making an Eligible Subscription through your Referral Link, your Friend must accept, and not delete, any relevant cookies provided in connection with the Program prior to signing up for an Account and making an Eligible Subscription, otherwise the Referral Link will not be recognized and the Plant People Credit will not be applied to your or your Friend's Account.
Prior to providing Plant People with any information about any Friend, you agree to (i) inform the Friend about the nature and purpose of the Program and explain that Plant People may contact the Friend and (ii) obtain such Friend’s consent to be contacted by Plant People and to participate in the Program.
This offer is made to you and your Friends, and applies solely to your personal referrals. Plant People Credits are not redeemable for cash and are nontransferable and not refundable (e.g., if an order is refunded, any portion of such order paid for using Plant People Credits will not be refunded). Your Plant People Credits will not be granted, and may be revoked or deemed ineligible for redemption, if your shave plan subscription is cancelled before your Friend signs up for an Eligible Subscription.
Plant People expressly reserves the right to disqualify any referrals it believes in its sole discretion are generated by scripts, macros or other automated or fraudulent means (e.g., using fake accounts) or violation of these Program Terms and to take action and seek damages to the fullest extent permitted by law against any user it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Program or otherwise acting in violation of these Program Terms, which may include, without limitation, terminating a user’s Account or participation in the Program, delaying or cancelling the rewarding of Plant People Credits, or revoking or refusing to honor outstanding Plant People Credits. In all matters relating to the administration of the Program, the decisions of Plant People will be final.

In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Plant People in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and Plant People agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to these messaging terms and conditions ("Messaging Terms") or your receipt of text messages from Plant People or its service providers will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, which may allow for more limited discovery than in court and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Messaging Terms, or your receipt of text messages from Plant People or its service providers whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory and regardless of when a claim arises. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE MESSAGING TERMS, YOU AND Plant People ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THESE MESSAGING TERMS SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
Notwithstanding subsection 'General' above, nothing in these Messaging Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of you or Plant People to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and Plant People will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Messaging 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 Plant People. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
If you or Plant People intends to seek arbitration, then the party seeking arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail ("Notice"). Plant People address for Notice is: PBC. 801 Rutherford Place, Austin, TX 78704 Attn: Chief Executive Officer. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). You and Plant People will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if you and Plant People do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Plant People may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Plant People must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Messaging Terms, Plant People will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. If the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Plant People for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. You and Plant People agree that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. 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 you or Plant People made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
No Class Actions
YOU AND Plant People AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Plant People agree otherwise in a signed writing, 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.
Modifications to this Arbitration Provision
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Messaging Terms, if Plant People makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Plant People address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Plant People address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and Plant People.
If an arbitrator decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of the limitations of subsection 'Modifications to this Arbitration Provision' above (addressing class, representative and consolidated proceedings) as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and brought in court. If any other provision of these Messaging Terms is found to be unenforceable, the applicable provision shall be deemed stricken and the remainder of these Messaging Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
