If you lose the Return Packaging, you will be responsible for returning the item at your own expense by the expected return date, and providing Tulerie with a tracking number. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations of this clause shall not apply to the Rental Fee, which is charged separately from, and in addition to, any other charges payable by you pursuant to this Section. If the Return Packaging is lost or not in adequate condition, the Borrower is responsible for finding adequate substitute packaging. Tulerie is not responsible for any personal or other items left in the Products or which are returned to the Lender.

Nothing in the Terms of Service shall confer or purport to confer on any other third party any benefit or the right to enforce any term of the Terms of Service, unless otherwise expressly set forth herein. All parties to this Agreement hereby waive their right to a trial by jury, in the event there is any dispute arising out of or relating to the agreement or the transaction.

You and Tulerie agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the App (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction in the state or federal courts located in New York County, New York, United States of America (and you consent to the jurisdiction of those courts), to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Tulerie are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Tulerie otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules.
If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Tulerie submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative, legal and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
