If any of these Terms conflict with the terms of the LAEULA, these Terms shall control.
Mobile Service, Internet and Service Fees
The use of the Application requires use of a mobile device and wireless mobile data service, which must be obtained from your wireless carrier, and may require Internet access, which must be obtained from your service provider; you are responsible for obtaining and paying for a suitable device and such additional services, including, without limitation, all usage charges related thereto.

The Application may not work with all devices or all mobile carriers. We make no representations that the Application will be compatible with or provided by all mobile carriers. In the event that fees are charged for the Application or other third party service providers charge a fee for the services or products they provide, you agree to pay such fees to the respective party in exchange for your continued use of such services or products. Some services may be subject to different or additional terms (including fees), which you will be required to agree to prior to your use of such services.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, COPYRIGHT, AND EXCLUSIVITY
Copyright in any manual, sales documentation, technical description, and other documents that may be supplied by Amika under or in connection with your purchase(s) and any and all intellectual property rights, title, and interest in the formulation or design of Amika’s services or products, or any part thereof, whether such formulation or design is registered or not, shall vest in Amika absolutely. Any data, patent, copyright, proprietary right, or confidentiality, know-how, trademark, or process with respect to Amika’s services or products is the proprietary information (“Proprietary Information”) of Amika and its third-party vendors (as the case may be).

You also agree that you shall not use or provide Amika’s products to any third-party or other entity to reverse engineer or disassemble Amika’s products or any part thereof to create or derive any Amika or third-party intellectual property.
It is our policy to respect the copyright and intellectual property rights of others. We may remove content that appears to infringe the copyright or other intellectual property rights, including moral rights, of others. In addition, we may terminate access by Users who appear to infringe the intellectual property or other rights of others.

It is often difficult to determine if your intellectual property rights have been violated or if the DMCA requirements have been met. We may request additional information before we remove any potentially infringing material. If a dispute develops as to the correct owner of the rights in question, we reserve the right to remove the applicable material along with that of the alleged infringer pending resolution of the matter. We have an absolute right to remove any such User Content or other material from the Site in our sole discretion at any time.

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS+ LOYALTY PROGRAM
The Friends With Benefits+ Loyalty Program (the “Program”) allows you to earn points based on bi-monthly purchases reported by your primary Distributor. You may redeem these points for merchandise rewards from the Site ("Rewards"). To sign up for the Program, please go to loveamikapro.com and follow the prompts. Your participation in the Program is subject to these Terms and any changes thereto. The Program is intended for personal use only. Commercial use is prohibited. We may, in our sole discretion, terminate your participation at any time without notice. If we do so, you will not be able to earn any further Rewards, but you will be able to use Rewards you have already earned until they expire.
By joining the Program, you consent to receive promotions and other information about offers to the email provided when you join. Additionally, you consent to your purchase totals and account number being disclosed by your primary Distributor. If you no longer want to receive promotional emails from us, you can update your email preferences by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in our emails to unsubscribe. You may not be able to receive some of your Rewards if you unsubscribe.
You will earn points based on your purchase level per bi-monthly period as reported by your primary Distributor. Your points determine your Rewards levels, but are promotional and have no cash value. Points are valid for 12 months from the date of issuance. Unused points will expire and are unable to be reissued.
The Program has six tiers of membership. The Program also includes a tier specifically for a suite customer who is the sole operator and service provider for the salon and who holds the establishment license (the “Salon Suites”). Accounts that do not register as Suites are unable to qualify for the Suite Tier. Rewards are issued on a bi-monthly basis and accounts will not receive rewards for the periods they do not qualify.
You may find more information about our Rewards and tiers on the Rewards Details page, which is incorporated into these Terms. We reserve the right to change the Program Rewards, including the earning model, point amounts, other rewards, and eligibility used to determine the Rewards, at any time in our sole discretion. All changes will apply to future orders, including for current members.
The products redeemed from this Site are for rewards redemption and not intended for resale. Reselling Amika products on any unauthorized site or third-party platform is strictly prohibited. You agree that any rewards redeemed are for personal or professional use only and you will not list Amika products on any unauthorized sites or third-party platforms such as, but not limited to 11 Main, Bonanza, eBay, Mercari, Open Sky, Overstock, Sears Marketplace, Shopzilla, or Walmart Marketplace. Failure to comply may result in termination of your account and future eligibility in Amika professional programs.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, WE EXPLICITLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.

IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY WARRANTIES RELATING TO OUR SERVICES, PRODUCTS, OR CONTENT, THESE TERMS, AND YOUR USE OF THE SITE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FROM YOUR PURCHASE OF ANY SERVICES OR PRODUCTS VIA THE SITE, OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID OR OWE FOR SERVICES OR PRODUCTS PURCHASED VIA THE SITE IN THE LAST TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO YOUR CLAIM OF LIABILITY. THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND AMIKA. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT NEITHER AMIKA, OUR AFFILIATES, OR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING SERVICES, PRODUCTS, OR CONTENT ON THE SITE WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES, OR DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, COMPENSATORY, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES), HOWEVER CAUSED OR UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY – EVEN OUR OWN ACTIVE OR PASSIVE NEGLIGENCE – ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH: (I) THE SITE; (II) THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE; (III) THE USE OF OR RELIANCE ON ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION DISPLAYED IN OR ON THE SITE; (IV) THE PURCHASE OR USE OF ANY SERVICES OR PRODUCTS THROUGH THE SITE OR OTHERWISE; (V) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OR LOSS OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OF DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION THAT IS SENT TO OR RECEIVED BY THE SITE; (VI) ERRORS, SYSTEM DOWN TIME, NETWORK OR SYSTEM OUTAGES, FILE CORRUPTION, OR SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS; OR (VII) OTHERWISE UNDER THESE TERMS, WHETHER OR NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE, EVEN IF WE OR OUR REPRESENTATIVES ARE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, CLAIMS, OR LOSSES, AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY. THE NEGATION OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND AMIKA. ACCESS TO THE SITE WOULD NOT BE PROVIDED TO YOU WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU IN THE LAST TWELVE (12) MONTHS TO AMIKA FOR ANY SERVICES OR PRODUCTS SUPPLIED BY US THROUGH YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR OTHERWISE.
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY AMOUNT FOR FAILURE TO PERFORM ANY OBLIGATION UNDER THESE TERMS IF SUCH FAILURE IS CAUSED BY THE OCCURRENCE OF ANY UNFORESEEN CONTINGENCY BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INTERNET OUTAGES, COMMUNICATIONS OUTAGES, FIRE, FLOOD, OR WAR.
The terms of this section survive any termination of these Terms.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, for any reason or no reason, to terminate your ability to use the Site and to block and prevent future access to and use of the Site. You agree that we will not be liable for any termination of your use of or access to the Site.
NO THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARIES
We and you are the only parties entitled to enforce these Terms. These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than you and Amika. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that the payment card networks are third party beneficiaries of these Terms for purposes of enforcing provisions relating to payments, but that their consent or agreement is not necessary for any changes or modifications to these Terms. You also agree that if we assign, transfer, or sub-contract any of our rights or obligations under these Terms to any third party in writing, such third party may enforce the Terms that are assigned, transferred, or sub-contracted.
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS
You acknowledge and agree that both you and Amika are waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class representative or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless we both otherwise agree in writing, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive termination of these Terms.
We both agree that these Terms should be interpreted and enforced under the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1, et seq.) because they memorialize a transaction in interstate commerce. This section will survive termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered and governed by the Comprehensive or Expedited Arbitration Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS), whichever is appropriate and in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Procedures”), which are available at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267.
The parties expressly agree that JAMS may not administer any multiple claimant or class arbitration, as the parties agree that the arbitration will be limited to the resolution of individual claims only.
DISPUTE NOTICE AND ARBITRATION PROCESS
Prior to initiating an arbitration proceeding, you must first send Amika a written statement setting forth your name, address, and telephone number, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested (“Dispute Statement”). The Dispute Statement to Amika must be emailed to email@example.com. If we are unable to resolve your claim within thirty (30) days, then either party that desires to initiate an arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the JAMS Procedures.
An arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes relating to Amika’s services and products, as well as all Disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, the arbitrability of any claim, as well as any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the JAMS arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is an IP Protection Action.
ARBITRATION LOCATION AND PROCEDURE
Unless the parties otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then: (i) the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents the parties submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary; and (ii) if there is a hearing, you may choose whether to participate in person or by telephone. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS Procedures. Subject to the JAMS Procedures, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration.
The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions of law upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Disclaimer of Warranties,” and “Limitations of Liability” sections above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory and injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Amika will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
We will pay or (if applicable) reimburse you for all JAMS filing, administration, and arbitration fees for any arbitration commenced by you or Amika pursuant to the terms of this section.
TIME LIMIT FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES
The parties agree that any cause of action either may have with respect to the Site or our services, products, and Content must be commenced within one (1) year after the Dispute arises, notwithstanding any statutes of limitations to the contrary. Many states’ laws set statutes of limitations that are longer than one (1) year. If you live in a state that has statutes of limitations that are longer than one (1) year, by agreeing to these Terms, you are agreeing to shorten the time you have to bring a claim. This means that if you wait longer than one (1) year to initiate arbitration under this section, you will lose some or all rights you may have to any recovery, including the right to recover damages, in connection with a Dispute.
The terms of this Dispute Resolution section survive any termination of these Terms.
RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OR REJECT FUTURE CHANGES TO DISPUTE RESOLUTION SECTION
You may elect to opt-out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding, individual arbitration procedure or waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this section by sending a written letter to Amika, at Amika, LLC., 300 Meserole Street #3, Brooklyn, New York, 11206, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, within thirty (30) days of your first visit to and use of the Site that specifies your: (i) name; (ii) mailing address; and (iii) request to be excluded from the final, binding, individual arbitration procedure or waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this section. In the event you opt-out consistent with the procedure set forth above, all other terms and conditions of these Terms will continue to apply. If you do not so opt-out, then the terms of this “Dispute Resolution” section will apply.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Amika and you regarding the Site, Content, services, and products that may be provided on the Site, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between you and Amika regarding the Content, services, or products provided on the Site. If, for any reason, any provision of these Terms is deemed to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms without such consent will be null and of no effect. We may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Amika under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) by Amika via email; or (ii) by posting to the Site. For notices made by email, the date of receipt will be deemed the date we transmit such notice.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Amika. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
Nothing in these Terms will be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between you and Amika, and you do not have any authority to create any obligation on our behalf.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact Amika at: Amika, LLC., 300 Meserole Street #3, Brooklyn, New York, 11206 or email@example.com.
