STEPPED DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND BINDING ARBITRATION
You hereby agree that any claim or controversy arising out of, relating to, or in connection with your use of the Website or these Terms or the breach, termination or validity thereof (“Dispute”), shall be settled through use of the stepped dispute resolution procedures as follows:
a. Negotiation. You and Company shall attempt in good faith to resolve any Dispute promptly by negotiation between representatives with proper authority to settle the Dispute. Either party may give written notice of a dispute (“Notice of Dispute”). Within fifteen calendar (15) days after the delivery of such notice, the receiving Party shall submit to the other a written response. The notice and response shall include: (1) a statement of that party’s position, (2) a summary of arguments supporting that position, and (3) the name and title of the executive who will represent that party, as well as any other person who will accompany the representative. The parties’ representatives shall meet at a mutually acceptable time and location to attempt to resolve the dispute within forty-five (45) days after delivery of the initial notice. If after forty-five (45) calendar days, negotiations fail to resolve the dispute, or do not occur at all, the parties shall move directly to mediation. All negotiations pursuant to this clause are confidential and shall be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence.
b. Mediation. Any and all Disputes not resolved through negotiation within forty-five (45) days after delivery of the Notice of Dispute shall be submitted to mediation. The parties shall select a mutually agreeable mediator, and a mutually agreeable time and location for the mediation within ninety (90) days after the initial Notice of Dispute. All negotiations pursuant to this clause are confidential and shall be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence. Each party shall pay its own costs related to the mediation regardless of the outcome.
c. Binding Arbitration. If any Dispute has not been resolved by mediation as provided herein within ninety (90) days after the initial Notice of Dispute, it shall be submitted for binding arbitration. A single arbitrator shall be jointly selected, and arbitration shall be conducted through using the institutional rules of a mutually agreeable arbitration provider. If the Parties cannot mutually agree upon an arbitration provider, the Parties shall submit their Dispute to the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) for arbitration, and an arbitrator shall be selected according to that tribunal’s rules. The award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the Parties. In furtherance of an economical resolution to any dispute, the parties hereto agree that in any arbitration, each party will be limited to three (3) depositions, ten (10) requests for production of documents (inclusive of sub-parts), thirty (30) interrogatories, and ten (10) requests for admission, and there will be no transcript taken of any arbitration proceeding. The arbitration tribunal shall have authority to render final judgment on any Dispute brought before it, including interpretation and application of this Agreement and the determination of whether a particular Dispute is arbitrate. The scope of the arbitrator’s authority shall include the authority to interpret and apply the meaning of this paragraph. Each of the Parties hereby waives any and all rights of appeal. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any state court having jurisdiction thereof. If, and only if, no state court has jurisdiction, then the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any federal court having jurisdiction thereof.
If any provision of this dispute resolution provision is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining terms will be enforced.
You may not assign these Terms without our prior written consent, but we may freely assign or transfer these Terms, in whole or in part, without restriction. Attempts by you to assign these Terms without our prior written consent shall be void.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of the Company.
a. To You. We may provide any notice to you under these Terms by: (i) sending a message to the email address you provide or (ii) by posting to the Website. Notices sent by email will be effective when we send the email and notices we provide by posting will be effective upon posting. It is your responsibility to keep your email address current.
b. To Us. To give us notice under these Terms, you must contact us as follows: (i) by email transmission to ; or (ii) by personal delivery, courier, or registered or certified mail to Harry’s Hemp Shop 3171 Lydia Lane, Bellmore, NY 11710.

Notices provided by email or overnight courier will be effective one business day after they are sent. Notices provided by registered or certified mail will be effective three business days after they are sent.
If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, then the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties intentions as reflected in the provision, and all other provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
