ARBITRATION, JURY WAIVER, AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Please read the following ARBITRATION AGREEMENT carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Pattern Brands and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Pattern Brands.
General. The parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service promptly by negotiation between individuals who have authority to settle the controversy. If good faith negotiations do not lead to an amicable resolution within thirty (30) business days of commencing negotiations, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, or the breach thereof, shall be determined by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules. The tribunal will consist of one arbitrator. The arbitration will take place in the city and country where Pattern’s headquarters is located. If this location is not feasible, the arbitration shall occur in a location of Pattern’s choosing. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings will be English. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND PATTERN BRANDS WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR JURY. You and Pattern Brands are instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and Pattern Brands over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND PATTERN BRANDS WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. YOU AND PATTERN BRANDS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor Pattern is entitled to arbitration, and all claims and disputes will be resolved pursuant to Section 20(e).
Opt-out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Section by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: [ADDRESS], postmarked within thirty (30) calendar days of first accepting these Terms of Service. You must include (i) your name and residence address, (ii) the email address and/or telephone number associated with your account, and (iii) a clear statement that you want to opt out of these Terms of Service’s arbitration provisions.

PLEASE NOTE: THESE SMS TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE WITH A CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. THE ARBITRATION PROVISION AFFECTS HOW DISPUTES WITH Pattern ARE RESOLVED. YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION. IN ARBITRATION, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY AND THERE IS LESS DISCOVERY AND APPELLATE REVIEW THAN IN COURT. PLEASE READ THESE SMS TERMS CAREFULLY.

Eligibility and Change in Phone Number
Mandatory Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY PRE-DISPUTE RESOLUTION, BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
IRRESPECTIVE OF ANY LAW TO THE CONTRARY, YOU MUST PROVIDE NOTICE TO Pattern, PURSUANT TO THE PROCEDURES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, OF ANY CLAIM WITHIN ONE YEAR OF ITS ACCRUAL OR YOUR CLAIM SHALL BE WAIVED AND TIME-BARRED.
Pre-Dispute Resolution Process
Should you and Pattern have a Dispute (as defined below), Pattern is committed to engaging with you to resolve it. Therefore, for any Dispute that arises between you and Pattern, the parties agree that they will first make a good faith effort to resolve it informally. This informal dispute resolution process is a condition precedent to commencing any formal proceeding in arbitration or small claims court. The parties agree that any relevant limitations period and filing fee or other deadlines will be tolled while the parties engage in this process.
For your Disputes with Pattern, you must first send your name, address, telephone number, email address, and sufficient information for Pattern to identify any transaction at issue; a detailed description of your Dispute; and the nature and basis of your claims and the relief sought to the following email address: help@PatternBrands.com. You and Pattern agree to negotiate in good faith about the Dispute, including through an informal and individualized telephone conference between you and Pattern. If either party to the Dispute is represented by counsel, that party’s counsel may participate, but the party also must personally appear at and participate in the conference. This process should lead to resolution of the Dispute, but if the matter is not resolved within sixty (60) days after Pattern’s receipt of the written description detailed above, you and Pattern agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below. This time period will start to run upon receipt of the information referenced above.
You and Pattern agree that any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action between you and the Company, or the Company's employees, agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, successors, representatives, or assigns (“Dispute(s)”), shall be resolved through binding and confidential arbitration, except that you or the Company may elect to have a Dispute heard in small claims court if it qualifies for hearing by such a court.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND Pattern ARE EACH WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT, INCLUDING RIGHTS TO RECEIVE A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
