DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US:
Generally, transactions are conducted smoothly on our website. However
there may be some cases where we and you may face issues. A 'Dispute'
can be defined as a disagreement between you and us in connection with
a transaction on the Website.
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and us in the most
expedient and cost effective manner, you and we agree that any and all
disputes arising in connection with the Terms shall be resolved by
binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in
court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury,
may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject
to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages
and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes
includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to
any aspect of the Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute,
fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of
whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Terms.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THE TERMS, YOU AND WE
ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A
The seat of Arbitration shall be Hong Kong and the language used for
arbitration shall be English.
The award of the arbitration shall be binding on both, you and us.
The suits which are impliedly or specifically barred by this agreement
shall be opposed by us by pleading this agreement.
