Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of North Carolina, USA., without reference to conflicts of laws provisions. Any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be finally settled by binding arbitration in Asheville, North Carolina, in accordance with the then-current rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association by one (1) arbitrator. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed, reduced to judgment, and entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You agree that, any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator shall have the authority to award the prevailing party its costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees. Gaia Herbs reserves the right to seek any interim, preliminary, or other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect its rights or its property or the rights or property of its agents, suppliers, and subcontractors.

In the event that the above arbitration provision is held invalid or unenforceable, then any dispute with respect to these Terms shall be brought and heard either in the North Carolina state courts located in Buncombe County, North Carolina, or the federal district court for the Western District of North Carolina located in Asheville, North Carolina. In such event, you consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
