Removal of User Content by SpeedSmith. SpeedSmith may delete, move, re-format, edit, alter, distort, remove or refuse to exploit User Content without notice to you and without liability; provided, however, that SpeedSmith reserves the right to treat User Content on the Site, or on certain portions of the Site, as content stored at the direction of users for which SpeedSmith will not exercise editorial control except to enforce the rights of third parties and these Terms when violations are brought to SpeedSmith’s attention.

THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN SPEEDSMITH AND YOU.
Our goal is to provide you with great service, so we’ll try our best to resolve any disagreements that you have with us. If we can’t, then you and we both agree to resolve disputes related to your use of the Services or these Terms (each, a “Claim”) in binding arbitration instead of court, except that (a) a Claim may be brought in small claims court if it qualifies for it and (b) either party may bring suit in court to enjoin the infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
- What is arbitration? Arbitration does not involve a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral person (the “arbitrator”) hears each party’s side of the dispute, and makes a decision that is finally binding on both parties. The arbitrator can award the same relief as a court could award, including monetary damages. While court review of an arbitration award is limited, if a party fails to comply with the arbitrator’s decision, then the other party can have the arbitration decision enforced by a court. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
- Can a Claim be part of a class action or similar proceeding? No. You agree to resolve your Claims with us solely on an individual basis, and not as part of a class, representative or consolidated action. We agree to do the same.
- What rules apply in the arbitration? The arbitration will be conducted under the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”). The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
- How will the arbitration be conducted? How much does it cost? The arbitration will be conducted by the AAA or a comparable arbitration body in the event the AAA is unable to conduct the arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Unless the arbitrator finds your Claim frivolous, we’ll pay for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees if your Claim is for less than $10,000, and we won’t seek our attorneys’ fees and costs if we prevail in the arbitration. The arbitration may be conducted in writing, remotely (e.g., by videoconference) or in-person in the county where you live (or at some other location that we both agree to).
- How do I start an arbitration proceeding? To begin an arbitration proceeding against us, send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Claim to 340 S Lemon Ave #8869 Walnut, CA 91789. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or street address you provided.
- INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPTING-OUT OF ARBITRATION: If you don’t want to agree to arbitrate your Claims as explained above, then you can opt-out of this arbitration agreement by notifying us of your decision in writing at 340 S Lemon Ave #8869 Walnut, CA 91789. You must opt-out within 30 days of the date you first agree to these Terms or any updated Terms.
This Dispute Resolution section only applies to Claims between us and individual consumers, and is governed by The Federal Arbitration Act.
When you visit the Site, App or send e-mails to SpeedSmith, you are communicating with SpeedSmith electronically. You consent to receive communications from SpeedSmith electronically. SpeedSmith may communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on the App or the Site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that SpeedSmith provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. In addition, as part of the Services, SpeedSmith may send you notifications (e.g. “remeasure your child’s foot”). You hereby consent to receive such notifications as part of the Services.
You agree that these Terms combined with your act of using the Site, the App and/or any Services have the same legal force and effect as a written contract with your written signature and satisfy any laws that require a writing or signature, including any applicable statute of frauds. You further agree that you shall not challenge the validity, enforceability or admissibility of these Terms on the grounds that it was electronically transmitted or authorized. In addition, you acknowledge that you have had the opportunity to print these Terms.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
Choice of Forum
The exclusive jurisdiction for all Claims that are not subject to arbitration, including any Claims brought on behalf of a company or other legal entity, will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California, and you and SpeedSmith each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between SpeedSmith and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between SpeedSmith and you regarding the Site, the App, the Services and the Site Materials. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without SpeedSmith’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and void. SpeedSmith may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Notices.
