Disputes & Arbitration:

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT. Using or accessing the Website constitutes your acceptance of this arbitration provision. Please read it carefully as it provides that you and the Company will waive any right to file a lawsuit in court or participate in a class action for matters within the terms of this arbitration provision.

YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT AND NOT BY ARBITRATION if your claim qualifies for small claims court in a location where jurisdiction and venue over you and Company is proper, in which case you may initiate proceedings in small claims court.

EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY FOR SMALL CLAIMS COURT, ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY, AND YOU AGREE THAT THE COMPANY AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND TO HAVE A TRIAL BY A JURY. WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS OF ANY NATURE OR IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.  THIS MEANS THAT YOU MAY NOT PURPORT TO ACT ON BEHALF OF A CLASS OR ANY OTHER PERSON.  LIKEWISE, AN ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.

The arbitration will be administered by Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective July 1, 2014 (the “JAMS Rules”) and as modified by this agreement to arbitrate. The JAMS Rules, including instructions for bringing arbitration, are available on the JAMS website at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration. The Minimum Standards for consumer arbitration are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/consumer-minimum-standards.

The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by JAMS or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of these Terms of Use and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have the authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms of Use, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms of Use will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice

We will respond to claims of copyright infringement, will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement by third parties, and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(2), where applicable. In keeping with the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement by third parties should be sent to the designated agent noted below (the “Designated Agent”). If you believe that your copyrighted work has been infringed under U.S. copyright law and is accessible on the Website, please notify us by contacting the Designated Agent. In order to give effective notification of a claim of copyright infringement by a third party under the DMCA, you must send a written communication to the Designated Agent that includes substantially the following:

  • a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • identification of the copyrighted work, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site, that are claimed to have been infringed;
  • identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
  • information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
  • a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that neither the copyright owner, nor its agent nor the law has not authorized the use of the material in the manner complained of; and (6) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

The Designated Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:

By mail:
Variety Wholesalers, Inc.
Attn: Legal Department
218 S. Garnett St.
Henderson, NC 27536

By E-mail:
gfrazier@vwstores.com

The above contact information is only for reporting claims of copyright infringement. See other portions of this Website for contact information for other issues.

If a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement is received, we will remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice as being infringing or as being the subject of infringing activity, and take reasonable steps to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to this material. Please note that, under the DMCA, a claimant who makes a misrepresentation concerning copyright infringement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer, by any copyright owner, or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or by the Company or its affiliates, who is injured by such misrepresentation, as a result of reliance upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.

A person, against whom a notice of copyright infringement is filed, may file a counter notification with the Designated Agent at the address listed above. To be effective, a counter notification must be a written communication provided to the Designated Agent that includes substantially the following:

  • a physical or electronic signature of such person;
  • identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
  • a statement under penalty of perjury that such person has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or mis-identification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
  • such person’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that such person consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if such person’s address is outside the United States, for any judicial district in which the Company may be found, and that such person will accept service of process from the complainant who provided the original notification or an agent of the complainant.

If a valid counter notification is received, we will provide the complainant with a copy of the counter notification, inform the complainant that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 14 business days, and replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 business days following receipt of the counter notification, unless the Designated Agent receives notice from the complainant that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Website. Please note that the DMCA provides substantial penalties for a false counter notification filed in response to a notice of copyright infringement. A person who makes a misrepresentation in a counter notification statement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by any copyright owner or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or incurred by the Company or its affiliates who is injured by such misrepresentations, as a result of reliance upon such misrepresentation in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.
