Choosing to do so is purely optional, and the decision to allow this information to be linked can be disabled (with the third-party site) at any time.
You agree to use the Site in strict compliance with all applicable laws, rules, rulings and regulations and in a fashion that does not, in the sole judgment of The Standard, negatively reflect on the goodwill or reputation of The Standard and shall take no actions that would cause The Standard to be in violation of any laws, rules, rulings or regulations applicable to The Standard. It is your responsibility to understand and obey all applicable local, state, federal and foreign laws (including minimum age requirements) regarding the possession, use and sale of any product for sale on the Site, including regarding any Transaction (defined below).

The information is intended for general purposes and nothing contained in the Site is intended to be used as medical advice.

Products will be shipped to an address designated by you, if applicable, so long as such address is complete and complies with the shipping restrictions contained on the Site. All Transactions are made pursuant to a shipment contract and, as a result, risk of loss and title for products pass to you upon delivery of the products to the carrier. You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments.
These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and The Standard regarding your use of the Site. The failure of The Standard to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Arbitration Agreement – Legal Disputes
By using the Site you unconditionally agree that all claims relating to your access or use of our Site (including any claim that any provision of these Terms are invalid, illegal, or otherwise voidable or void) will be resolved entirely through binding individual arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), rather than in court. The Standard shall have the right in a proper case to obtain equitable relief (including restraining orders, injunctive relief and/or certain declaratory relief) from a court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitration proceedings shall be heard by one qualified, independent arbitrator who shall be a licensed attorney in good standing. The arbitration shall be held in New York, New York and in accordance with, as applicable, the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA or Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of the JAMS (or successor rules). All matters within the scope of the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act will be governed by such act and not by any state law. Other than as described in these Terms, you and The Standard waive any rights to maintain a court action, administrative proceeding or other available resolution processes for to settle disputes under these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL FOR ANY DISPUTES.
The rules in arbitration are different from the rules that apply in court. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief, and must honor the same limitations stated in these Terms as a court would.
In reaching the decision, the arbitrator shall abide by these Terms, apply applicable law and shall not rule inconsistently with these Terms or applicable law. The arbitration shall be conducted on an individual basis, and not as a consolidated, common, representative, group or class. The award of the arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto and judgment upon the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Other than as may be required by law, the entire arbitration proceedings (including, but not limited to, any rulings, decisions or orders of the arbitrator), shall remain confidential and not be disclosed to anyone other than you and The Standard and their respective legal counsel.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, any and all claims and actions arising out of or relating to the Sites must be commenced within one (1) year after the occurrence of the facts giving rise to such claim or action; otherwise, such claim or action shall be barred.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you may send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: STANDARD INTERNATIONAL, Attn: Legal, 23 East 4th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10003, with an email copy to DPO@standardhotels.com.
Class Action Waiver
You agree that you will not file, or participate, in any class action against The Standard. You also agree that you will not file or seek a class arbitration, or participate in a class arbitration, against The Standard.
You expressly waive their right to file a class action, or participate in a class action, against The Standard, or seek any type of relief against The Standard on a class basis. You agree not to file, seek, or participate, in a class arbitration against The Standard.
These Terms, and all matters and disputes related to access and use of the Sites, will be governed by the laws of the State of New York and, as applicable, the federal laws of the United States (including the Federal Arbitration Act).
Exclusive Venue for Litigation
Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, any litigation shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in New York, New York, and you expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in New York, New York, for any litigation. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent that applicable law in your country of residence requires application of another law and/or jurisdiction and this cannot be excluded by contract.
These Terms do not, and shall not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and The Standard. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without our express prior written consent. We may assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of our rights or obligations under these Terms without restriction. No waiver by us of any breach of these Terms will be deemed to be a waiver of other breach. Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is for convenience only. All terms defined in the singular shall have the same meanings when used in the plural, where appropriate and unless otherwise specified. Any use of the term “including” or variations thereof in this Agreement shall be construed as if followed by the phrase “without limitation.” A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. The Standard will not be responsible for any failure to fulfill any obligation due to any cause beyond its control.
