2 Terms of Sale

 

2.1 Products and Pricing. All Products or services listed on the Web site are subject to change, as is Product information, pricing, and availability. We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, suspend, or discontinue any Web site feature or the sale of any Product with or without notice. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of any Web site feature or Product. In the event a Product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information, we shall have the right, prior to the acceptance of your order (as described in Section 2.3 below), to decline or cancel any such orders, whether or not the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card account charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the order and we cancel your order, we will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.

Unless otherwise noted, the strike-through price displayed for products on our Web site is based on the suggested retail price for the product provided to US.VAIO.COM by the manufacturer or vendor. Certain products on our site are similar - but not identical - to products sold through other retailers. In this case, the strike-through price represents the estimated regular retail value of a comparable item of similar quality offered elsewhere. Because we sell our products over the internet nationwide, the strike-through price may or may not represent the prevailing price at any particular time or in every State or local community, and we make no promises about the reliability or accuracy of any such information. For items that we offer as a set, the strike-through price is based on the total of all the suggested retail prices for each item in the set. For international sales, the strike-through price represents the retail price suggested to US.VAIO.COM by the manufacturer or vendor, based on what such items would be sold for in the US market, plus exchange rate conversion and, if applicable, an adjustment for additional international surcharges that cover items such as taxes, duties, and shipping. Nothing can replace your own comparison shopping, and notwithstanding the strike-through price information provided, if this is an important factor for you in your purchasing decision, we recommend you conduct your own individual research as well.

2.2 Payment Terms. For each Product you order on the Web site, you agree to pay the price applicable for the Product as of the time you submitted your order (“Product Price”), the delivery fees for the delivery service you select (“Delivery Fees”), and any applicable Taxes (defined below). US.VAIO.COM will automatically bill your credit card account submitted as part of the order process for such amounts, and you hereby authorize us to do so. You will be solely responsible for payment of all taxes (other than taxes directly imposed on US.VAIO.COM’s business activity in a state, such as income taxes), fees, duties, and other governmental charges, and any related penalties and interest, arising from the Product purchase (“Taxes”) not withheld by US.VAIO.COM. All payments are non-refundable (except as expressly set forth in Section 2.1 and 2.3). Without limiting other remedies, we reserve the right to charge a late fee on all past due payments equivalent to the lesser of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month on the unpaid balance or the highest rate allowed by law. You agree to pay for all collection costs, attorneys’ fees, and court costs incurred in the collection of past due amounts.

2.3 Orders. Your receipt of an order confirmation from us does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline or cancel your order (in whole or in part) for any reason. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. Your order is not accepted until it is shipped (or a portion of the order is shipped). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that, if we cancel all or a part of your order, your sole and exclusive remedy is that we (a) issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion (if your credit card has already been charged for the order) or (b) not charge your credit card account for the cancelled portion of the order.

2.4 Shipping Policy. Any delivery dates provided by US.VAIO.COM are estimates. US.VAIO.COM reserves the right to make deliveries in installments.

You agree not to settle any matter without the prior written consent of US.VAIO.COM. US.VAIO.COM will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.


10 Arbitration

 

You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your US.VAIO.COM purchase, use of any Product, or use of the Web site will be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. You agree that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

For all disputes whether pursued in small claims court or arbitration, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve your claim by sending a written description of your claim to US.VAIO.COM, attn.: Legal, 879 West 190th Street, Suite 1050, Gardena, CA 90248. We each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. If we are unable to resolve the claim within 60 days after we receive this claim description, you may pursue your claim in arbitration. We each agree that if you fail to timely pay amounts due, we may assign your account for collection, and the collection agency may pursue, in small claims court, claims limited strictly to the collection of the past due amounts and any interest or cost of collection permitted by law or the Agreement.

Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to 879 West 190th Street, Suite 1050, Gardena, CA 90248.

The dispute will be arbitrated by a neutral arbitrator mutually agreeable to both of us. If we cannot agree on the selection of an arbitrator within 30 days of the date that the request for arbitration was received by Corporation Service Company, the dispute will be arbitrated by JAMS arbitration services. The arbitrator will use the applicable JAMS arbitration rules unless we agree to use a different set of rules. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-JAMS. Upon filing of the arbitration request, we will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for the arbitration proceeding. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys' fees. In addition, for claims under $75,000 as to which you provided notice and negotiated in good faith as required above before initiating arbitration, if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to a recovery of reasonable attorneys' fees and costs regardless of whether they would have been available in a court.

CLASS ACTION WAIVER. WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR AS A MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you.

JURY TRIAL WAIVER. If a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
