Welcome to kubewater.com and the online store (the “Store”) owned, operated and provided by Kinetico Incorporated and its affiliates (collectively, “Kinetico”).   Kinetico can always be reached at 10845 Kinsman Road, Newbury, OH 44065 and any inquiries concerning this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy or any of the Service Terms, described below, should be addressed to Kinetico c/o the office of WebMaster.  You may also call Kinetico at 1-800-544-4233.  By accessing, browsing and/or using this web site (“Site”), you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy and all other disclaimers, statements, guidelines policies and terms and conditions appearing on this Site (collectively, the “Service Terms”) and to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.  If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use this Site.  The Service Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Kinetico with respect to this Site and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written between you and Kinetico.  The Service Terms are subject to change at any time without prior notice by updating this posting.  By using this Site, you agree to be bound by any such revisions so please review the Service Terms, including this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy, each time you access this Site.    

As a consumer, you have certain legal rights. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under the Service Terms will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.

For a full description of your legal rights you should refer to the laws applicable in your country or jurisdiction. Nothing in the Service Terms and, in particular, this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy will affect those other legal rights.

Although the Site is accessible worldwide, the KUBE system and its ancillary products (collectively, the “Products”) have only been designed and tested for use in the United States (excluding Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands and any other United States’ commonwealth or territory) and Canada and, therefore, will only be available in and shipped to these countries.  This Site is intended for use by residents of the United States and Canada, only, and Kinetico makes no representation that the content of this Site is applicable or appropriate for use in other countries.  Kinetico makes no representations that materials in the Site are appropriate or available for usein other locations, and access to them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited.  Those who choose to access this Site from other locations do soon their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.  This Site is controlled and operated by Kinetico from its offices within the United States.

3. Disputes and Arbitration

(a)  If any dispute arises between you and Kinetico concerning your purchase of a Product on the Site, our objective is to resolve the issue directly with you on a timely basis. You agree that you will notify Kinetico about any dispute or claim you have with Kinetico, arising out of or relating to this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy, any of the other Service Terms, your purchase of the Products on the Site or your use of the Products (collectively, “Your  Claim”), as soon as it becomes apparent to you.

(b) Binding Arbitration. Excluding those claims related to sums owed to Kinetico or concerning the use of Kinetico’s trademarks, which in Kinetico’s sole discretion may be commenced in any court of law, you and Kinetico agree, to submit any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to Your Claim to binding arbitration rather than by filing any lawsuit in any forum other than set forth in this section. Further you agree arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. You also waive your right to any form of appeal, review or recourse to any court or other judicial authority, insofar as such waiver may be validly made. This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of or relating to Your Claim. You agree that Your Claim whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory will be resolved by binding arbitration except that you may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court.

(c) Arbitration Procedures. You must first present Your Claim to Kinetico by contacting us to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You may request arbitration if Your Claim cannot be resolved within 60 days after presenting Your Claim to Kinetico. Kinetico may request arbitration against you at any time after it has notified you of a claim or dispute in accordance with clause 7 (Notifications). The arbitration of Your Claim shall be conducted in accordance with the then current and applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association as modified by this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy. The place of any arbitration will be Cleveland, Ohio, USA, and will be conducted in the English language. Claims will be heard by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator may NOT award relief in excess of or contrary to what this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy provides, order consolidation or arbitration on a class wide or representative basis, award punitive, consequential, incidental or indirect damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages (to the extent permitted by law), or order injunctive or declaratory relief, except that the arbitrator may award on an individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you, nor Kinetico nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.

(d) CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS SUBJECT TO THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS ACTION OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR ON BASES INVOLVING CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, AS A  PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL).

(e) Fees and Expenses. All administrative fees and expenses of arbitration will be divided equally between you and Kinetico. Each party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration hearing.

(f) YOU MUST CONTACT KINETICO WITHIN 90 DAYS OF THE DATE OF THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT OR FACTS GIVING RISE TO YOUR CLAIM, OR YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM.

(g) Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Kinetico may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect its confidential information and intellectual property rights or to prevent loss of data or damage to its servers in any court of competent jurisdiction.

This arbitration clause shall survive termination of this Terms of Use and Purchase Policy.
