21.          DMCA Notice – Notice & Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement. 

21.1        Foodland’s policy is to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). Copyright-infringing materials found on this Site can be identified and removed via our process listed below, and you agree to comply with such process in the event you are involved in any claim of copyright infringement to which the DMCA may be applicable.

21.2        If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide Foodland’s copyright agent the written information specified below. Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying Foodland that your copyrighted material has been infringed. Foodland does not and will not make any legal decisions about the validity of your claim of infringement or the possible defenses to a claim. When a clear and valid notice is received pursuant to the guidelines set forth below, Foodland will respond by either taking down the allegedly infringing content or blocking access to it. Foodland may contact the notice provider to request additional information. Under the DMCA, Foodland is required to take reasonable steps to notify the user who posted the allegedly infringing content ("Alleged Infringer"). The Alleged Infringer is allowed under the law to send Foodland a counter-notification. Notices and counter-notices are legal notices distinct from regular Site activities or communications. We may publish or share them with third parties in our sole discretion (in addition to producing them pursuant to a subpoena or other legal discovery request). Anyone making a false or fraudulent notice or counter-notice may be liable for damages under the DMCA, including costs and attorneys’ fees. Any person who is unsure of whether certain material infringes a copyright held by such person or a third party should contact an attorney.

21.3        To file a DMCA notice, the copyright owner must send in a written letter by fax, regular mail, or email only. We reserve the right to ignore a notice that is not in compliance with the DMCA, and we may, but are not obligated to, respond to a non-compliant notice.

21.4        A DMCA notice must:

·                     Identify specifically the copyrighted work(s) believed to have been infringed (for example, "My copyrighted work is the picture that appears at [list location where material is located].");

·                     Identify the Content that a copyright owner claims is infringing upon copyrighted work. The copyright owner must provide information reasonably sufficient to enable us to locate the item on this Site. The copyright owner should provide clear screenshots of the allegedly infringing materials for identification purposes only. The information provided should be as detailed as possible;

·                     Provide information sufficient to permit us to contact the copyright owner directly: name, street address, telephone number, and email (if available);

·                     If available, provide information sufficient to permit us to notify the Alleged Infringer (email address preferred);

·                     Include the following statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law";

·                     Include the following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed";

·                     Be signed; and

·                     Be sent to our DMCA designated agent at the following address:

27.          Arbitration Agreement

Please read this section carefully. Except as the Terms otherwise provide, you waive your rights to try any claim in court before a judge or jury and to bring or participate in any class, collective, or other representative action.

27.1           Agreement to Binding Arbitration

You and Foodland agree that in the event of any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, statute, or otherwise) arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with (1) this Site or (2) the breach, enforcement, interpretation, application, or validity of these Terms, such claim, dispute or controversy will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration, except as otherwise set forth in these Terms (the “Arbitration Agreement”).

27.2        Exceptions to Arbitration

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of arbitration: (1) either you or Foodland can bring an individual claim in small claims court in the United States of America consistent with any applicable jurisdictional and monetary limits that may apply, provided that it is brought and maintained as an individual claim; and (2) you agree that you or Foodland may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

27.3        Jury Trial & Class Action Waiver

Except as the Terms otherwise provide, you and Foodland acknowledge and agree that you are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. You and Foodland may not be plaintiffs or class members in any purported class, collective, or representative proceeding, and may each bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity. You acknowledge and agree that with regard to any claims relating in any way to this Site, you may not seek to, and an arbitrator or court may not, join or consolidate your claims with any other similar claims and you agree you will not proceed in any court or arbitration proceedings as a representative of others, join in any court or arbitration proceedings brought by any other person, and understand that you may not be included as a member of any class that may be certified by a court or arbitrator. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim. 

If any court or arbitrator determines that any term in the immediately preceding paragraph is unenforceable for any reason as to any claim, then the Arbitration Agreement will be inapplicable to that claim, and that claim will instead proceed through litigation in court rather than by arbitration, but only after the conclusion of the arbitration of any claim or dispute that is subject to the Arbitration Agreement.

27.4           Governing Law & Arbitration Rules

The laws of the State of Hawaii will govern the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms and any dispute subject to this section.

The arbitration will be conducted under the then current and applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.

27.5        Initiating Arbitration

If you intend to seek arbitration you must notify Foodland by calling (808) 452-1500 and asking for the customer service department and allowing Foodland the opportunity to resolve the claims or disputes. If your claims or disputes are not resolved within sixty (60) days either party may initiate arbitration proceedings.

A form to initiate arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send such copy to Foodland at 3536 Harding Avenue, Honolulu, Hawaii 96816, and Foodland will send such copy to the current billing address on your account or to your attorney, if you have retained one.

27.6        Fees

For claims of $100,000 (US Dollars) or less, Foodland will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, “Filing Fees”) unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous. For claims over $100,000 (US Dollars), you will be responsible for the Filing Fees.

27.7        Location & Procedure

If your claim is for $10,000 (US Dollars) or less, you may choose to have arbitration conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, via a telephone hearing, by an in-person hearing in the City and County of Honolulu, State of Hawaii, or as otherwise mutually agreed to by the parties. If your claim exceeds $10,000 (US Dollars), the location of the arbitration will be in the City and County of Honolulu, State of Hawaii.  The parties’ right to a hearing will be determined in accordance with the rules of the AAA.

27.8           Arbitrator’s Decision

The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You acknowledge and agree that each party shall pay the fees and costs of its own attorneys, experts, and witnesses incurred in connection with any arbitration or court proceeding between the parties notwithstanding any provision permitting the award attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party in any statute under which you may bring a claim.

28.          Choice of Law, Forum Selection & Jury Waiver. 

Except as set forth in the Arbitration Agreement section above, all matters relating to your access to or use of this Site and all matters arising out of or related to these Terms, will be governed by the applicable laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Hawaii, without regard to Hawaii’s choice of law principles. Unless you and Foodland agree otherwise, in the event that it is determined or these Terms provide that a claim should not proceed through arbitration, you agree that any claim or dispute (with the exception of a claim or dispute appropriately lodged in any small claims court in the United States of America) shall be resolved in the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii, and you submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. If subject matter jurisdiction (including diversity jurisdiction) does not exist in the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii for any such claim, then the exclusive forum and venue for any such action shall be the courts of the State of Hawaii located in the City and County of Honolulu, and you submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. As to any proceeding in court, you and Foodland both waive your right to a jury trial, unless such waiver is unenforceable.

29.          General Information
