SPANX MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS CONCERNING ANY CONTENT CONTAINED IN OR ACCESSED THROUGH THE WEBSITE, AND SPANX WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE ACCURACY, COPYRIGHT COMPLIANCE, LEGALITY OR DECENCY OF MATERIAL CONTAINED IN OR ACCESSED THROUGH THE WEBSITE.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL SPANX, OUR AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SHAREHOLDERS, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS OF EACH, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES YOU OR OTHERS MAY SUFFER, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST REVENUE, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, LOST DATA OR CONTENT, COMPUTER DAMAGE, COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES, INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE, PRIVACY LEAKAGE, OR ANY OTHER LIABILITIES OR LOSSES CAUSED BY THE WEBSITE, ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO IT, ANY CONTENT ON OUR WEBSITE OR SUCH OTHER WEBSITES, ANY SERVICES OR PRODUCTS OBTAINED THROUGH OUR WEBSITE OR SUCH OTHER WEBSITES, ANY BREACH OF THESE TERMS, ANY ACT OR OMISSION BY US OR OUR PERSONNEL, WHETHER OR NOT THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES HAS BEEN DISCLOSED IN ADVANCE OR COULD HAVE BEEN REASONABLY FORESEEN, REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY AGREED OR OTHER REMEDY OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN SPANX AND YOU.
13. Disputes; Governing Law
You agree that the Terms and any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue or request for relief between you and Spanx arising out of or relating to these Terms, your visit to our Website, or to products or services purchased via our Website (collectively "Disputes") will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
If a Dispute arises between you and Spanx, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns. You agree that you will notify Spanx about any Dispute you have with us regarding these Terms, our Website, or our products or services by contacting Spanx at email@example.com. We’ll try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you through email. If a Dispute is not resolved within 90 days after submission, you or Spanx may bring a formal proceeding.
Spanx is the owner of this Website and is based in the state of Georgia in the United States. We make no claims that the Website or any of its Content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Access to the Website may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Website from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
14. Binding Arbitration
You and Spanx agree to submit all Disputes to confidential arbitration on an individual and purely bilateral, non-class/non-representative basis. Arbitration on an individual basis is the exclusive remedy for any claims which might otherwise be brought on a class, collective or representative basis between you and Spanx.
This agreement to arbitrate will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 (the "FAA") and shall be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall take place in Atlanta Georgia. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and Spanx shall select a mutually agreeable arbitrator from the AAA. Unless otherwise precluded by law, you and Spanx shall each separately pay your or its own attorneys’ fees and costs. You agree that if any provision of this arbitration agreement is held by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable, or void, that provision shall be struck from the agreement to arbitrate, and the remainder of the arbitration agreement shall remain in full force and effect consistent with applicable law. However, the entire agreement to arbitrate shall be void if the provisions above waiving or precluding class arbitration proceedings are found to be invalid, unenforceable, or void for any reason.
Notwithstanding the above, if 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 with jurisdiction, whether or not it is in Georgia. You consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
15. Limitation on Claims
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any Dispute must be filed within one (1) year after the occurrence of the event or facts giving rise to a Dispute, or you waive the right to pursue any Dispute based upon such event or facts forever.
16. Term and Termination
These Terms will remain in full force and effect as long as you continue to access or use the Website. We may, with or without prior notice, terminate any of the rights granted by these Terms without cause.

You may also cancel your account at any time by contacting customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.888.806.7311.
17. Entire Agreement; Waiver; Severability
Nothing contained in these Terms shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between you and Spanx. Spanx’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision or of any other rights or provisions in these Terms.
If a court or tribunal should find that one or more rights or provisions set forth in these Terms are invalid, you agree that the remainder of the Terms will remain in full force and effect and that the invalid provision will be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. We will amend or replace such provisions with ones that are valid and enforceable and which achieve, to the extent possible, our original objectives and intent as reflected in the original provisions.
If you have any questions regarding these Terms, please contact us by email at email@example.com or by calling 1.888.806.7311.
