notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice“). If you don’t provide Tricky Treasures with an Arbitration Optout Notice within the 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 (a) and (b) above. Further,
unless both you and Tricky Treasures 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 class action waiver is held unenforceable, then the parties’ agreement
to arbitrate will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute
Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms. If the terms of this Section 12.1
“Arbitration” are found unenforceable as to any claim for relief, that claim must be severed from the
arbitration and brought pursuant to Section 12.4, “Governing Law and Exclusive Venue.” All other
claims will be arbitrated. The arbitrator, and not any court or agency, will have exclusive authority to
(a) determine the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement and (b) resolve any dispute
related to its interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation including any claim that all or any
part of it is void or voidable.
