All disputes and claims not arising by or on behalf of an Independent Consultant shall be settled in accordance with the following dispute resolution procedure below.
If a dispute arises, it is expected that the parties will attempt in good faith to resolve any such dispute in an amicable and mutually satisfactory manner.
Arbonne is a member of the Direct Selling Association (the "DSA") and requires its Arbonne Independent Consultants to comply with the DSA Codes of Practice. In the unlikely event that you have any concerns in relation to the supply of goods detailed above or the conduct of the Arbonne Independent Consultant, which cannot be resolved either by the Independent Consultant or Arbonne, you may contact the DSA (at Direct Selling Association, Unit 14 Mobbs Miller House, Christchurch Road, Northampton, NN1 5LL, Tel: +44 (0)1604 625700; email@example.com) which administers a Dispute Resolution Procedure in relation to such matters.
In the event such efforts are unsuccessful and the matter is not resolved through negotiation, the parties shall attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith through mediation. Either party may serve a notice requesting mediation (“Notice of Mediation”) on the other party. Notice of Mediation shall be personally delivered or sent by pre-paid registered airmail or overnight courier, and shall be effective on receipt thereof by the party to whom it is addressed. Proof of receipt shall be a receipt signed by any officer or responsible official of the party to whom it is addressed. The Notice of Mediation shall be dated, and without prejudice to any right under the Agreement permitting subsequent modifications, shall specify the claims or issues which are to be subjected to mediation, including the requested remedies sought in the mediation. The parties shall attempt, in good faith, to select a mutually acceptable mediator from the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution, International Dispute Resolution, 70 Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 1EU United Kingdom (“CEDR”) in London, United Kingdom. If the parties are unable to agree on a mediator within 15 days of service of the Notice of Mediation, the parties shall request that CEDR submit to the parties a list of seven proposed mediators (the “Mediator List”). Within seven days after service of the Mediator List, each party shall submit a letter to CEDR that ranks four mediators on the Mediator List in order of preference and strikes the remaining three names. CEDR shall then select the mediator on the Mediator List with the highest combined ranking. The mediation shall take place in London, United Kingdom within 45 days after the selection of the mediator. The party that serves the Notice of Mediation shall be responsible for the costs of the mediation, but not the other party's legal costs. The mediation, and any materials, briefs, statements, documents or information exchanged at or in anticipation of the mediation, shall be kept confidential and shall not be admissible for any purpose in any legal proceeding.
If the dispute cannot be resolved by mediation, or if any party will not participate in mediation, either party may issue legal proceedings in the English courts.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
If any provision or part-provision of these Terms is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these Terms. Conflicts
If at any time you have agreed or agree to the Arbonne Independent Consultant Application and Agreement, to the extent of any conflict between the terms of the Arbonne Independent Consultant Application and Agreement and the terms of this Agreement (including, without limitation, any conflict with respect to dispute resolution terms), the terms of the Arbonne Independent Consultant Application and Agreement shall apply and control.
37. Other Important Terms
We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing.
This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties Act) 1999 or otherwise.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
