All payments made are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these TOS.

Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Composure agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these TOS or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services, Products or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”).
Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide Composure with written notice of your desire to do so by email at email@example.com within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these TOS ( “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide Composure with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above.
The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if you timely provide Composure with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be the state and federal courts located in the Southern District of New York and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless you timely provide Composure with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you and Composure are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding.
Further, Composure agrees in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate claims brought by another user with your claims unless agreed to in writing by Composure, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding… Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these TOS.
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 AAA Rules are available at https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer_Rules_Web_1med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) 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. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration form and a separate form for Demand for Arbitration for California residents.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless you and Composure otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the NEW YORK county, STATE OF NEW YORK, or if agreeable to all sides as well as AAA, online If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Composure 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 of damages must be consistent with the TOS of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and 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. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Composure will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Composure changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these TOS (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOS), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) or your opt-out to Arbitration within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Composure’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Composure in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these TOS (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOS).
These TOS constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Composure and you regarding the Services, Products, and Content. These TOS supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Composure and you regarding the Services, Products, and Content. If any provision of these TOS is held invalid or unenforceable, either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the TOS of the “Arbitration” section above or by court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these TOS will remain in full force and effect.
Composure may freely assign or transfer these TOS without restriction, however, user’s may not assign or transfer these TOS. Subject to the foregoing, these TOS will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Composure under these TOS, including those regarding modifications to these TOS, will be given: (i) by Composure via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Composure’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these TOS will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Composure. Except as expressly set forth in these TOS, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these TOS will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these TOS or otherwise.
