Dispute Resolution by Mandatory Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to or use of the Websites, the Products (including the purchase or use of any Products or any other purchases made on or through the Websites), or otherwise related to this Agreement or your relationship with International Living (“Disputes”), shall be resolved exclusively through confidential arbitration, rather than in court, and shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the State of Maryland, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement. Any question as to the validity of this arbitration agreement shall be submitted to confidential arbitration and decided by an arbitrator.

If a Dispute arises, you agree to first contact us at 410-783-8408 or Before formally submitting a Dispute to arbitration, you and we may choose to informally resolve the Dispute. If any Dispute cannot be resolved informally, you agree that any and all Disputes, including the validity of this arbitration clause and class action waiver, shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in a location convenient to you or telephonically. Either you or we may commence the arbitration process by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party. We will pay the filing costs. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures, Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration. The AAA’s rules are available at A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration of a Dispute may be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through a class action, private attorney general proceeding, class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. You expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims in any representative or class-wide capacity, including but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action or any class-wide arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following shall not be subject to arbitration and may be adjudicated only in the state and federal courts of Maryland: (i) any dispute, controversy, or claim relating to or contesting the validity of our or one of our family company’s intellectual property rights and proprietary rights, including without limitation, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, or trade secrets; (ii) an action by us for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, whether prohibitive or mandatory, or other provisional relief; (iii) any legal action by us against a non-consumer; and (iv) interactions with governmental and regulatory authorities.

The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this arbitration agreement is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this arbitration agreement shall still apply; however, if an arbitrator or court decides that the class action waiver is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration agreement shall be null and void.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE IN A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION. You shall have thirty (30) days from the earliest of the date that you visit the Website or the date you purchase a Product or submit information to or through the websites to opt out of this arbitration agreement, by contacting us by email at If you do not opt out by the earliest of the date that you visit the websites, or the date that you purchase a Product or submit information to us through the websites, then you are not eligible to opt out of this arbitration agreement.
