If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with the written information specified below.

YOU AND TOP TEXAS WINES AGREE THAT IN THE EVENT OF ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO, OR CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH THE SITE, OR THE BREACH, ENFORCEMENT, INTERPRETATION, OR VALIDITY OF THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, SUCH CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION IS SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY COURTS, BUT ARBITRATORS CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF THAT A COURT CAN AWARD. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING: (I) IN LIEU OF ARBITRATION, EITHER YOU OR TOP TEXAS WINES CAN BRING AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIM IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CONSISTENT WITH ANY APPLICABLE JURISDICTIONAL AND MONETARY LIMITS THAT MAY APPLY, PROVIDED THAT IT IS BROUGHT AND MAINTAINED AS AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIM; AND (II) YOU AGREE THAT YOU OR TOP TEXAS WINES MAY BRING SUIT IN COURT TO ENJOIN INFRINGEMENT OR OTHER MISUSE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send written notice (“Notice”), by first class or certified mail, to Top Texas Wines, 383 Vineyard Row, Johnson City, TX. 78636. If Top Texas Wines intends to seek arbitration, Top Texas Wines will send Notice to the current billing address on your account. The Notice must describe the nature and basis of the claim and the specific relief sought. If the parties cannot reach an agreement within thirty (30) days from the receipt of the Notice, either party may initiate arbitration proceedings. A form to initiate arbitration proceedings is available on the American Arbitration Association (AAA) site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send such copy to Top Texas Wines, 383 Vineyard Row, Johnson City, TX. 78636, and Top Texas Wines will send such copy to the current billing address on your account.
The arbitration will be conducted under the then current rules of the AAA. The AAA rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. If your claim is for $10,000 (US Dollars) or less, you may choose to have arbitration conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, via a telephone hearing, by an in-person hearing in the county of your residence, or as otherwise mutually agreed to by the parties. If your claim exceeds $10,000 (US Dollars), the location of the arbitration and the parties’ right to a hearing will be conducted in accordance with the rules of the AAA. For all claims, you will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, “Filing Fees”). In the event that an arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous, you must reimburse Top Texas Wines for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Top Texas Wines on your behalf that you would have otherwise been obligated to pay in accordance with the rules of the AAA.
YOU AGREE THAT ALL MATTERS RELATING TO YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SITE AND ALL MATTERS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, INCLUDING ALL DISPUTES, WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT (FAA), THE APPLICABLE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, WITHOUT REGARD TO TEXAS’S CHOICE OF LAW PRINCIPLES. UNLESS YOU AND TOP TEXAS WINES AGREE OTHERWISE, IN THE EVENT THAT IT IS DETERMINED OR THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS PROVIDE THAT A CLAIM SHOULD NOT PROCEED THROUGH ARBITRATION, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A CLAIM OR DISPUTE APPROPRIATELY LODGED IN ANY SMALL CLAIMS COURT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) SHALL BE RESOLVED IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF TEXAS, AND YOU SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THAT COURT. IF SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION (INCLUDING DIVERSITY JURISDICTION) DOES NOT EXIST IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF TEXAS FOR ANY SUCH CLAIM, THEN THE EXCLUSIVE FORUM AND VENUE FOR ANY SUCH ACTION SHALL BE THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS LOCATED IN HENNEPIN COUNTY, AND YOU SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THAT COURT. YOU AND TOP TEXAS WINES BOTH WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, UNLESS SUCH WAIVER IS UNENFORCEABLE.
THE MAKING OF CLAIMS OR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (1) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE SITE AND/OR THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY IN THE FORUM DESIGNATED IN THIS DISPUTES SECTION, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; AND, (2) EXCEPT FOR NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS AND WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED BY LAW, ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS, AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’ FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE.
