THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

11.Arbitration, Class-Action Waiver, and Jury Waiver
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU AND LOVACH TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
a. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You and Lovach agree that all claims and disputes (whether contract, tort, or otherwise), including all statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of the Services that cannot be resolved in small claims court, will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis in the exclusive jurisdiction of Hong Kong, except that you and Lovach are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents.
b. Choice of Law and Venue. By using the Services and agreeing to these Terms, you agree that any dispute of any kind that may arise between you and Lovach or its affiliates shall be governed by the law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Hong Kong Court.
c. Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND LOVACH WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Lovach are instead electing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration.
d. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth herein.
e. Right to Waive. Any rights and limitations set forth in this arbitration agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this arbitration agreement.
f. Opt-out. You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you do so, neither you nor Lovach can force the other to arbitrate. To opt out, you must notify Lovach in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Lovach username, and the email address you used to set up your Lovach account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. You must either mail your opt-out notice to this address:
ATTN: Arbitration Opt-out
Tan International Trading Ltd.
9B Cheong Tai Commercial Building
66 Wing Lok Street.
Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
Or email the opt-out notice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
g. Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Lovach may bring an individual action in small claims court.
h. Arbitration Agreement Survival. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Lovach.
