If you choose to place an order while a product is on back order, Jindilli will charge your credit card at the time the order is placed. This will ensure that your order will ship as soon as the product is back in stock. If during this period you decide to cancel your order, you can do so for a full refund. You can also wait to place an order when the Product is back in stock on the shopping page, however, if there is considerable demand during a back order period, supplies may be limited. All orders will be processed in the order they are received at Jindilli. All sales and payments will be in US Dollars.

12 – Disputes and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver
- DISPUTES AND ARBITRATION
This Section (Section 12) facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and Jindilli. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt-out of this Section (as explained below), which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.
Please read this Section carefully. It provides that all Disputes (as defined below) between you and Jindilli shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in court, before a judge or jury, and/or participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorneys’ fees).
For the purpose of this Section, “Jindilli” means Jindilli and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Jindilli regarding any aspect of your relationship with Jindilli, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Section (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SECTION.
Notwithstanding any Section in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Jindilli makes any change to this Section (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change and require Jindilli to adhere to the language in this Section if a Dispute between us arises.
Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution. For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give Jindilli an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to Jindilli, Attn: Jim Richards, 1801 South Meyers Road, Suite 400, Oakbrook Terrace IL 60181. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If Jindilli does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out. Notwithstanding the above, you or Jindilli may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Section by mailing written notification to Jindilli, Attn: Jim Richards, 1801 South Meyers Road, Suite 400, Oakbrook Terrace IL 60181. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Jindilli through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Section will have no adverse effect on your relationship with Jindilli. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.
Arbitration Procedures. If this Section applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (“Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution”) either you or Jindilli may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Section.
For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Section governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.
Because the Site and this Agreement concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.
Arbitration Award. The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
Location of Arbitration. You or Jindilli may initiate arbitration in either Chicago, Illinois, or the federal judicial district that includes the address you provide in your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution. In the event that you select the federal judicial district that includes the address you provide in your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution, APIASF may transfer the arbitration to Chicago, Illinois, in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs you incur as a result of the transfer, as determined by the arbitrator.
Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs. Jindilli will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to your own attorneys’ or expert witness’ fees. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with Jindilli as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
- CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Except as otherwise provided in this Section, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and Jindilli specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration. If you choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of this Section, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other user of the Site can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
- JURY WAIVER
You understand and agree that by entering into this Agreement you and Jindilli are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Section, you and Jindilli might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.
If any clause within this Section (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section, and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
This Section 12.1 through 12.5 shall survive the termination of your use of the Site.
