18. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND GOVERNS HOW YOU AND REEF CAN BRING CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER. THIS SECTION WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION, REQUIRE YOU AND REEF TO SUBMIT CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. THIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BRING A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE LAWSUIT IN A COURT OF LAW BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY CONCERNING ANY DISPUTE THAT MAY ARISE WHICH IS COVERED BY THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND ARE INSTEAD AGREEING TO SUBMIT ANY SUCH DISPUTE SOLELY ON YOUR OWN BEHALF TO AN IMPARTIAL ARBITRATOR. 

18.1 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and REEF mutually agree to forego the delay and expense of using a court of law and choose instead to benefit from the speedy, economical, and impartial dispute resolution procedure of using binding arbitration for any “Covered Claims” (as defined below) that arise between you and REEF, its related and affiliated companies, and/or any current or former employee, officer, or director of REEF or any related or affiliated company. you and REEF agree that this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., and will survive even after these Terms of Use and any REEF Services terminate. Any revision to or termination of the Terms of Use that modify or terminate this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section shall not apply to a pending arbitration, to any claim that accrued prior to the modification or termination, or to any claim that the asserting party knew about prior to the modification or termination, except as may be required by applicable law. 

18.2 Claims Subject to Arbitration. Other than the exceptions listed below, the “Covered Claims” include any and all controversies, disputes, disagreements, and claims arising out of, or relating to, these Terms of Use (including its enforcement, breach, performance, interpretation, validity, or termination), or your access to and/or use of the REEF Services, or the provision of content, services, and/or technology on or through the Websites, App or otherwise to the fullest extent allowed by law.. 

18.3 Claims Not Covered by Arbitration, Jurisdiction, and Venue. The Covered Claims do not include (and thus shall not require arbitration of) the following types of claims that will hereafter be referred to as “Excluded Claims”: (a) any claims that cannot be required to be arbitrated as a matter of law (including but not limited to claims by California residents under the California Private Attorney General Act of 2004 (“PAGA”), to the extent exclusion from arbitration is required by California law, and claims or charges that must be filed with a governmental administrative agency); (b) applications for provisional remedies, preliminary injunctions, and temporary restraining orders, including but not limited to those relating to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; and (c) small claims actions demanding $10,000 or less brought on an individual basis and within a small claims court’s jurisdiction. 

Any Excluded Claims arising out of, or related to, these Terms of Use or the REEF Services shall be instituted exclusively in the state and federal courts located in the City of New York and County of New York, New York, which shall be the exclusive forum for such claims. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts. 

In the event you or REEF chooses to pursue arbitration of both Covered Claims and Excluded Claims and the other party objects, the Covered Claims must be arbitrated. In no event will Covered Claims be joined with Excluded Claims and litigated in court unless both parties agree to waive arbitration. 

18.4 Class Action Waiver. Except as otherwise required under applicable law, you and REEF agree to arbitrate any Covered Claims only on an individual basis and hereby waive any right to bring, participate in, or receive money or any other relief from any representative, class, or collective proceeding (“Class Action Waiver”). No party may bring a claim on behalf of other individuals, and no arbitrator hearing any claim under these Terms of Use may: (a) without the consent of all parties, combine more than one individual’s claim or claims into a single case; (b) order, require, participate in, or facilitate production of class-wide contact information or notification of others of potential claims; or (c) arbitrate any form of a class, collective, or representative proceeding. 

18.5 Arbitrability Determinations. If a party violates the agreement to arbitrate by commencing an action asserting a Covered Claim in a court of law, then the court (and not an arbitrator) shall have the authority to resolve any disputes about the interpretation, formation, existence, enforceability, validity, and scope of the this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section. If a party complies with the agreement to arbitrate and files for arbitration without filing a complaint in a court of law, then the arbitrator shall have the authority to resolve any disputes about the interpretation of this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section for purposes of discovery or the merits of the underlying claim, but shall have no authority to resolve any disputes about the formation, existence, enforceability, or validity of this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section, including the Class Action Waiver. 

18.6 Arbitration Rules, Procedures, and Costs. To initiate arbitration, the party desiring to pursue a legal dispute must prepare a written demand setting forth the claim(s) and deliver the written demand within the applicable statute of limitations period by hand or first class mail to the representatives of the other party. You and REEF agree that the arbitration shall be administered by JAMS before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, and if the parties cannot agree within thirty (30) days after names of potential arbitrators have been proposed, then by a single arbitrator who is chosen by JAMS. Except to the extent that they are modified by the rules below, if you are an individual person, the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures that are in effect at the time of the filing of the demand (and that are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/) will apply. Except to the extent that they are modified by the rules below, if you are not an individual person, but are an entity or company, the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures that are in effect at the time of the filing of the demand (and that are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/) will apply. 

18.7 The parties agree that the applicable JAMS rules are modified as follows: 

a. Any arbitrator must be neutral as to all parties. Standards for the recusal of an arbitrator shall be the same standards under which trial judges are recused under New York law. 

b. No party is entitled to its attorneys’ fees, except as may be awarded in a matter authorized by and consistent with applicable law. 

c. All discovery shall be subject to any and all objections available under FRCP 26(b). Each party shall avoid broad or widespread collection, search, and production of documents, including electronically stored information (“ESI”). If a compelling need is demonstrated by the requesting party, the production shall: (i) be narrowly tailored in scope; (ii) only come from sources that are reasonably accessible without undue burden or cost; and (iii) be produced in a searchable format, if possible without undue burden or cost, and which is usable by the receiving party and convenient and economical for the producing party. Where the costs and burdens of the requested discovery outweigh its likely benefit, considering the needs of the case, the amount in controversy, and the importance of the discovery in resolving the issues, the arbitrator shall deny such requests or order production on condition that the requesting party advance to the producing party the reasonable costs involved in making the production, subject to the allocation of costs in the final award. 

d. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award the same damages and other relief that would have been available in court pursuant to the law governing the Covered Claim(s). 

e. Either party shall have the right to file motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment/adjudication. 

f. The arbitrator shall have the authority to issue an award or partial award without conducting a hearing on the grounds that there is no claim on which relief can be granted or that there is no genuine issue of material fact to resolve at a hearing. 

g. The Federal Rules of Evidence shall apply to all arbitration proceedings. 

h. For discovery purposes only, an arbitrator may consolidate claims filed by multiple individuals, each on their own behalf, in a single arbitration proceeding, or may conduct a joint hearing for efficiency purposes, so long as the arbitrator does not (a) certify (conditionally or otherwise) a collective, class, or representative action that includes individuals who have not themselves already submitted their own individual claims, or (b) authorize the issuance of notice of the arbitration to individuals on the grounds that the arbitrator or any party believes there are other individuals who are similarly situated to or share commonality with a party to the arbitration. 

i. The arbitrator must issue a decision in writing, setting forth in summary form the reasons for the arbitrator’s determination and the legal basis therefor. 

j. The arbitrator’s authority shall be limited to deciding the case submitted by the parties to the arbitration. Therefore, no decision by any arbitrator shall serve as precedent in other arbitrations except to preclude the same claim from being re-arbitrated between the same parties. 

k. The parties may settle any dispute on a mutual basis without involvement of the arbitrator. 

l. If you initiate arbitration, you will pay the first $250, and REEF will pay all other filing, administrative, or hearing fees. If you are an individual person and REEF initiates arbitration, REEF will pay all filing, administrative, and hearing fees. Regardless of which party initiates arbitration, you will remain responsible for your attorneys’ fees and costs unless the law governing the Covered Claim provides for an award of attorneys’ fees and costs and the arbitrator determines as part of the arbitration award that you may recover a certain amount of attorneys’ fees and costs. 

If any term or condition in this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section is determined to be unenforceable or in conflict with a mandatory provision of applicable law, it shall be construed to incorporate any mandatory provision, or the unenforceable or conflicting term or condition shall be automatically severed and the remainder of this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section shall not be affected. Provided, however, that if the Class Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable, then any claim brought on a class, collective, or representative action basis shall be adjudicated exclusively in the state and federal courts located in the City of New York and County of New York, New York, which shall be the exclusive forum for such claims. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts. 

19. General

No waiver by REEF of any term or condition set out in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of REEF to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. 

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect. 

The Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy and any other relevant agreement to the REEF Services constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and REEF regarding the REEF Services and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the REEF Services.

We reserve the right to source the goods from any of our facilities in any location (or the facilities of any of our affiliated companies or partners in any location). 

e. Delivery. REEF may use its own personal or third-party partners for delivery of items ordered by you from the REEF Order and Delivery. We will use reasonable efforts to deliver your goods within the time window you select, where available, or in the window provided to you when placing your order, but REEF does not guarantee that goods will be delivered on or by a certain date or time. REEF will not be liable for delivering the goods outside of the delivery time or failing to deliver all or any of the goods in your order. In the case of inclement weather or unforeseen delivery complications, it may be necessary to make adjustments to our delivery schedule which will cause us to suspend or delay delivery dates and times. 

f. Batching. In the event you place more than one order through different REEF Order and Delivery Services, REEF may, at its sole discretion, choose to deliver all orders at the same time or may choose to deliver them separately. If REEF chooses to deliver multiple orders at the same time, you will not be refunded for any delivery fees incurred for individual orders. 

g. Receipt of Delivery. You agree to provide accurate and thorough information related to the delivery location. REEF shall not be liable for delivery to the wrong location or unfulfilled deliveries as a result of you providing REEF with incomplete or inaccurate delivery information. Unattended deliveries may be made in REEF’s sole discretion. If REEF elects unattended delivery, your order will be left unattended at your door or another similar location, or at another place designated by you where such ability for you to designate an alternative delivery location is available. REEF is not responsible, and you agree not to hold REEF liable in any way, for any damage, spoilage, or theft that occurs to an unattended delivery. We reserve the right to refuse to leave an order unattended if we consider the circumstances to be unsuitable or unsafe for any reason. Where delivery is made in-person, anyone who receives the delivery at the delivery address is conclusively presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. Should REEF be unable to deliver your order for any reason, including finding nobody home at the time of our delivery or the unavailability or unsuitability of an unattended delivery location, you will have 24 hours to contact us at support@getreef.com regarding redelivery of your order, and you may be assessed a re-delivery fee if the order is redelivered. Your order is considered forfeited without refund after 24 hours from your delivery window if you have not contacted us to make alternate arrangements within that time frame. 

h. No Refunds. REEF does not offer refunds or credits for goods purchased and delivered. If items in your order were not delivered, or if delivered goods were defective, contact support@getreef.com and please be prepared to show photographic evidence of such, if applicable. 

i. Promo Codes. Promotion codes (“Promo Codes”) are valid only for REEF Delivery Services orders, subject to the terms of this Section. Your use of a Promo Code indicates your agreement to be bound by these Terms of Use and any Promo Code terms on the promotion offer itself. REEF will only honor a Promo Code if it is used in accordance with all applicable terms. Promo Codes issued by REEF are, and will remain, the property of REEF and are not transferable, cannot be resold, and have no cash value unless otherwise stated. Use of a Promo Code may be subject to you providing proof of entitlement to use the Promo Code. Promo Code values may be adjusted if the total discount value is greater than the value of your order. REEF reserves the right to withdraw or cancel any Promo Code at any time, either as a whole, or for specific goods or delivery areas. If this happens, then the Promo Codes may not be used for any orders placed after the date of withdrawal or cancellation. We reserve the right to reject or cancel the use of a Promo Code where fraud or misuse is suspected. You will have no claim against REEF in connection with such rejection or cancellation of a Promo Code. REEF will not be liable to any customer or household for any financial loss arising out of the cancellation or withdrawal of any Promo Code or any failure or inability of a customer to use a Promo Code for any reason. Promo Codes may not be copied, reproduced, published, or distributed directly or indirectly in any form for use by anyone other than the original recipient. By using a Promo Code, you warrant that you are the duly authorized recipient of it. You may only use one Promo Code for each order unless otherwise stated on the applicable Promo Code. We will only honor REEF Promo Codes and no other promotion codes will be accepted in the REEF Order and Delivery Services. 

j. Gratuity. Gratuity is not automatically included in or added to orders. Gratuity can be given at the time of order or, at your discretion, in cash at the time your order is delivered. 

k. Product Information. WE ATTEMPT TO DISPLAY THE PRODUCTS AND OTHER MATERIALS AND INFORMATION AND OTHER PRODUCT INFORMATION YOU VIEW ON THE DIGITAL SERVICES AS ACCURATELY AND COMPLETELY AS POSSIBLE. HOWEVER, REEF DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY OF SUCH MATERIALS AND INFORMATION AND ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CLAIMS ARISING OR RESULTING FROM YOUR RELIANCE THEREON. 

l. ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMER & ALLERGY INFORMATION. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROPER AND SAFE WASHING, HANDLING, PREPARATION, STORAGE, COOKING, USE AND CONSUMPTION OF THE PRODUCTS YOU RECEIVE THROUGH THE REEF ORDER AND DELIVERY SERVICES. REEF SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR NOTIFYING YOU OF PRODUCT RECALLS FOR ITEMS YOU HAVE PURCHASED THROUGH THE DIGITAL SERVICES. YOUR USE OF THE REEF ORDER AND DELIVERY SERVICES AND ITS GOODS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE REEF ORDER AND DELIVERY SERVICES AND ITS GOODS ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE” AND “PRESENT CONDITION” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, REEF HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND WHOLESOMENESS. THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY WARRANTIES THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.

20.3 REEF Alcohol Services. Any use of any REEF Services relating to the purchase of alcohol beverages (“REEF Alcohol Services”) is subject to the following additional terms:

a. REEF DOES NOT SELL ALCOHOL BEVERAGES. SALES OF ALCOHOL BEVERAGES ARE MADE BY DULY LICENSED, PARTICIPATING RETAIL MERCHANTS. 

b. REEF OFFERS INFORMATION AND A METHOD TO CONNECT DULY LICENSED PARTICIPATING RETAIL MERCHANTS TO YOU AND TO OTHER LAWFUL CUSTOMERS SEEKING TO PURCHASE ALCOHOL BEVERAGES. REEF DOES NOT, AND DOES NOT INTEND TO, MAKE SALES OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. EACH PARTICIPATING RETAIL MERCHANT IS THE SELLER OF RECORD FOR THE PARTICULAR ALCOHOL BEVERAGE PRODUCT(S) IT PROMOTES VIA THE REEF ALCOHOL SERVICES. REEF HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY ACTIONS OR OMISSIONS OF ANY PARTICIPATING RETAIL MERCHANT

c. IN SOME INSTANCES, REEF MAY ITSELF OR THROUGH SEPARATE RELATED OR UNRELATED ENTITIES ACT AS A DELIVERY AGENT FOR THE PARTICIPATING RETAILER TO DELIVER ALCOHOL BEVERAGES TO YOU OR OTHER PURCHASERS OF LEGAL DRINKING AGE. 

d. REEF HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY ACTIONS OR OMISSIONS OF YOU OR ANY CUSTOMER THAT MAY RESULT, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FROM THE PURCHASE AND/OR CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL BEVERAGES PROMOTED BY OR ACQUIRED THROUGH REEF ALCOHOL SERVICES.

e. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT USE THE REEF ALCOHOL SERVICES UNLESS YOU ARE 21 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER, AND YOU WILL NOT FURNISH ALCOHOL BEVERAGES OBTAINED THROUGH THE REEF ALCOHOL SERVICES TO ANY PERSON WHO IS NOT A LAWFUL CONSUMER, INCLUDING ANYONE WHO IS (i) UNDER 21 YEARS OF AGE, OR (ii) OBVIOUSLY INTOXICATED, APPARENTLY INTOXICATED, OR KNOWN TO BE A HABITUAL DRUNKARD WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE LAWS GOVERNING THE STATE IN WHICH YOU RESIDE. 

f. Purchasing Protocols. Because REEF does not engage in the sale of alcohol beverages, all sales terms and conditions for products promoted through the REEF Alcohol Services are set and confirmed by the participating retail merchants selling those products. However, the following protocols apply to all sales facilitated by the REEF Alcohol Services:

  1. You must personally accept the delivery of your purchased products. 
  2. You must provide the delivery agent with a government-issued photo identification confirming your age and identity upon delivery. This identification must be an original instrument, and not a copy, photo or facsimile of an identification document.
  3. The name on the government-issued photo identification must match the name on the credit card used to pay for the order.
  4. If you do not provide sufficient and valid identification to the delivery agent upon delivery (or if the identification is deemed by the delivery agent in their sole discretion, the expertise of which is acknowledged, to be fraudulent, false, or sufficiently in question to warrant rejection) or if the identification provided does not match the name on the credit card used by the purchaser to pay for the order, you agree that your order will be forfeited and the cost of the order will be paid to REEF in consideration for the time and effort required to prepare, package, and transport the order to you and back to the retailer. In such a case of an unverified or unverifiable identification, you will not be entitled to any refund or return.

g. The REEF Alcohol Services are not meant to, directly or indirectly, provide any impermissible value/inducement by any alcohol beverage manufacturer, importer, or wholesaler to any alcohol beverage retailer.
