Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Provision

In the event of any claim or dispute between you and Vintage Berkeley LLC, related to your use of this site, your purchase of goods or services on our site, or any representations or statements made by our company, whether such claim arises out of statute, contract or tort, the claim or dispute shall be submitted to binding arbitration upon the request of either party upon the service of that request on the other party.

Such disputes include, without limitation, those disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision.

The parties shall agree on a single Arbitrator to resolve the dispute. The matter may be arbitrated either by the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Service or American Arbitration Association as selected by the party filing the claim. The arbitration shall be conducted in California at the U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

This Arbitration Provision is intended to apply to the resolution of disputes that otherwise would be resolved in a court of law or before a forum other than arbitration and constitutes a waiver of your right to have your dispute resolved by a jury or in any other forum.

This Arbitration Provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”) and evidences a transaction involving commerce. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision, or the rules of the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Service or American Arbitration Association, are determined by the Arbitrator or by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, such portions shall be severed or modified so that this Arbitration Provision may be enforced to the greatest extent permissible under the law.
