Terms of Use

Effective Date: June 30th, 2024

For a printable version of the Privacy Policy, please click here.

Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully. They govern your use of the websites, mobile applications, and other online platforms operated by Johanna Ortiz ZF LLC (“JOZF,” “we,” “us” or “our”) where these Terms are posted, and all services and features available thereon (collectively, the “Sites”). 

These Terms represent a binding contract between JOZF and you. By creating an account or otherwise using the Sites (except for the limited purpose of reviewing these Terms or other agreements or policies on the Sites), you expressly represent that you (i) are legally competent to enter into this agreement, (ii) agree to be bound by these Terms, and (iii) have reached the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence. If you do not agree to be bound by any provision of the Terms, or if these Terms are not enforceable where you are located, you may not use the Sites.  

If you are an individual using the Sites on behalf of, or for the benefit of, any corporation, partnership, or other entity with which you are associated (an “organization”), then you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of yourself and such organization, and you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority to bind such organization to these Terms. In that case, references to “you” and “your” in these Terms will refer to both the individual using the Sites and to any such organization, unless context requires otherwise.

Certain areas, features, or functionalities of the Sites may be subject to different or additional terms, rules, guidelines or policies (“Additional Terms”), and we may provide such Additional Terms to you via postings, pop-up notices, links, or other means. All Additional Terms are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms. Any reference to the “Terms” in this agreement includes the Additional Terms. From time to time, such Additional Terms may conflict with these Terms. In the event of such a conflict, the Additional Terms will control.

NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION: PLEASE NOTE THE ARBITRATION REQUIREMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS, WHICH, SUBJECT TO SOME LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CLAIMS YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE, AND YOU WAIVE, THE RIGHT FOR A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS, AND THAT YOU MAY NOT PROCEED IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.

 ACCOUNT CREATION AND PASSWORDS

To access certain portions of the Sites, you may be required to create an account. You agree to provide truthful and accurate information during the account creation process. You also agree to maintain the accuracy of any submitted data. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, or otherwise act in a false or misleading manner during the account creation process, we reserve the right to terminate your account and suspend your use of the Sites. 

Further, you are responsible for preserving the confidentiality of your account password and agree to notify us of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your account. You agree that you are responsible for all acts or omissions that occur on your account while your password is being used. 

 OWNERSHIP OF THE SITES 

The content, features and functionalities of the Sites, including all information, text, graphics, Trademarks (defined below), button icons, images, audio clips, video clips, data compilations, and the design, selection and arrangement thereof (the “JOZF Content”), are the exclusive property of JOZF or our licensors and may not be used or exploited in any way without our prior written consent. 

We are providing you with access to the Sites and the JOZF Content pursuant to a limited, non-exclusive, non-sub-licensable, non-transferable, revocable license. You may use the Sites and the JOZF Content solely for non-commercial purposes and subject to these Terms. This license is available to you unless and until you or we terminate these Terms, we otherwise suspend your access to the Sites, or you are barred from using the Sites by applicable law. JOZF reserves all right, title, and interest not expressly granted under this license to the fullest extent possible under applicable law. 

Under this license, you are permitted to use the Sites and the JOZF Content in the following ways: (i) you may access and browse the Sites, and use the features and functionalities made available to you thereon, using a device that you own or are authorized to use (a “Device”); (ii) you may download the JOZF Content from the Sites and print out a hard copy, provided that you do not modify the JOZF Content and do not remove or alter any copyright or other notice contained thereon; (iii) you may install a copy of any mobile applications that we make available from time to time (collectively, the “Apps”) on a Device; and (iv) your Device may temporarily store copies of the JOZF Content incidental to your use of the Sites.     

Otherwise, you may not modify, copy, distribute, display, reproduce, sell, license, create derivative works from, or otherwise use or exploit the JOZF Content, in whole or in part, in any manner, without the prior written authorization of JOZF or the applicable licensor. Further, without the prior written permission of JOZF, you may not frame, or make it appear that a third-party website or service is presenting or endorsing, any aspect of the Sites or incorporate any of the JOZF Content into another website or other service. Unauthorized use of the JOZF Content may violate copyright laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and other applicable laws. You agree to comply with reasonable written requests from us to help us protect our proprietary and intellectual property rights.

The JOZF Content includes the trademarks, service marks, logos, slogans, trade names, and trade dress used on the Sites (the “Trademarks”). The absence of a trademark notice or symbol indicating the registration or ownership of a Trademark does not constitute a waiver of JOZF’s or its licensors’ rights. These Terms do not grant you any rights to use the Trademarks. Under no circumstances are you permitted to use the Trademarks in a manner that creates a likelihood of consumer confusion as the source or identity of any products or services or the ownership of any trademark. 

USER CONTENT & LICENSE GRANT TO JOZF

Certain aspects of the Sites may permit users to submit, post, link, send, share, or otherwise make available information and content (“User Content”). User Content has not necessarily been reviewed or approved by JOZF, and we, therefore, make no representations or warranties as to the accuracy, reliability, completeness or timeliness of any such content. Any views or opinions expressed in User Content belong to the users who shared the content and not to JOZF. Your reliance on any User Content is done entirely at your own risk. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY RELATED TO, ANY USER CONTENT, INCLUDING YOUR RELIANCE ON ANY SUCH CONTENT. 

You will retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you own in your User Content, but, in exchange for the opportunity to use the Sites, you automatically grant, or warrant that the owner of such content has expressly granted, to JOZF a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, unlimited, nonexclusive license to use, reproduce, create derivative works from, modify, publish, edit, translate, distribute, perform, display, and otherwise use and exploit your User Content for any purpose (commercial or otherwise) and in any media, medium, form, format, and forum now known or hereafter developed. We may sublicense these rights through multiple tiers of sublicenses. 

User Content shall not be deemed confidential, and we shall not have any obligation to keep any such material confidential. JOZF shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in such information for any purpose whatsoever including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, and marketing products and services incorporating such information. 

SMS MARKETING

By consenting to JOZF’s SMS program (the “SMS Program”) during the checkout process or via other subscription tools we provide, you are agreeing to receive recurring text messages regarding marketing offers, transactional matters (including related to your orders and account), and any other matters related to the Sites, even if your mobile number is registered on any state or federal do-not-call list. Message frequency varies. Consent to the SMS Program is not a condition of any purchase from us.

If you wish to stop receiving text messages from JOZF, reply with STOP to any text message sent from us or use the unsubscribe link provided to you within our commercial email messages. You understand and agree that alternative methods of opting out, such as using alternative words or requests, will not be considered a reasonable means of opting out. We do not charge for the SMS Program, but you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with text messaging imposed by your wireless provider. Message and data rates may apply. For any questions, please text HELP in response to any of our messages or reach out to us at the contact information provided in these Terms.

We have the right to modify any telephone number or short code we use to operate the SMS Program at any time. You will be notified on such occasions. You agree that any messages you send to a telephone number or short code we have changed, including any STOP or HELP requests, may not be received, and we will not be liable for honoring requests made in such messages. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that we will not be liable for failed, delayed, or misdirected delivery of any information sent through the SMS Program, any errors in such information, and/or any action you may or may not take in reliance on the information or SMS Program.

 VIDEO CONTENT ON THE SITES

The Sites may contain video content, audiovisual content, or content of a like nature (collectively, “Video Content”). Video Content is provided for the purpose of enhancing the user experience on the Sites and is, therefore, provided in connection with our business activities related to sale of apparel, accessories, and home goods. JOZF is not in the business of renting, selling, or delivering Video Content in a commercial manner. By using the Sites, you agree that JOZF is not a “video tape service provider” as defined in the Video Privacy Protection Act (“VPPA”), 18 U.S.C.A. § 2710.

Further, the Sites may utilize online tracking technologies and code-based tools, including social media pixels, software development kits, and cookies that track information about your activity on the Sites (collectively, “Targeting Tools”). Targeting Tools may result in information about your activity on the Sites being transmitted from your browser to JOZF and to third parties, which, in turn, may result in the display of targeted advertisements on third-party websites. Whether Targeting Tools on the Sites result in your browser’s transmission of information to third parties depends on a number of factors that may be outside of JOZF’s knowledge or control, including what third-party websites you use, what information you have provided to such third parties, and whether (and the extent to which) you have limited the use of cookies by the operators of third-party websites. As such, you hereby acknowledge and agree that, if Targeting Tools on the Sites result in your browser’s transmission of information to third-party websites, (i) such transmissions do not constitute a “knowing disclosure” of “personally identifiable information” by JOZF under the VPPA and (ii) you will not initiate any litigation or otherwise assert any claim against JOZF based, in whole or in part, on such transmissions, whether under the VPPA, the California Invasion of Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 630 et seq.), or any other statute, regulation, or cause of action.  

 SITE TRANSACTIONS

  1. Orders

The Sites allow users to make purchases of products (“Orders”). The default currency on the Sites is U.S. dollars (USD). We may provide options to allow users to select different currencies, in which case the currency displayed on the Sites will be the one you select. The prices listed exclude taxes and any shipping-related costs. Before placing an Order, you will be provided with a final overview identifying the products you have selected and the price that you owe, which will include shipping costs and may include estimated taxes, depending on the applicable jurisdiction.

If you wish to place an Order on the Sites, you will be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Order, including information about your method of payment, your billing address, and your shipping information. We currently accept the following methods of payment: Visa debit or credit cards, Mastercard debit or credit cards, Shopay, Affirm, ApplePay, and PayU. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY PAYMENT CARD OR OTHER METHOD UTILIZED IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ORDER. 

You further agree to provide current, complete, and accurate information for all Orders placed on the Sites. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, as applicable, so that we can complete your Order and contact you as needed. By submitting any information in connection with an Order, you grant to JOZF the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of Orders placed by you or on your behalf. 

Verification may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of an Order. 

Your placement of an Order on the Sites constitutes a request to purchase the relevant product or service from us. As such, your receipt of an Order confirmation email or similar acknowledgment means that your request has been received; it does not mean that the Order has been accepted or that the price or availability of the product(s) has been confirmed. We reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, or cancel or modify Orders and shall have no liability to you other than refunding your Order, if applicable. Without limiting the foregoing sentence, we may limit quantities purchased per person, per household, or per Order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or Orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We also reserve the right to ship the components of a single Order in multiple shipments. If the transaction is refused by any third party involved in processing your payment, we will cancel your order and shall have no liability to you for the same. If we make a change to or cancel an Order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the email and/or billing phone number provided at the time the Order was placed. 

PURCHASE OF OUR PRODUCTS FOR RESALE PURPOSES IS PROHIBITED. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT OR PROHIBIT ORDERS THAT APPEAR TO BE PLACED BY UNAUTHORIZED DEALERS, RESELLERS OR DISTRIBUTORS, AND TO CEASE DOING BUSINESS WITH SUCH CUSTOMERS, WITH NO FURTHER NOTICE. 

You agree to pay all charges that may be incurred by you or on your behalf through the Sites, at the price in effect when such charges are incurred, including all shipping-related charges. You remain solely responsible for any taxes and duties that may be applicable to your Orders, regardless of whether tax is included in the purchase price of your Order. Further, it is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal, and international laws in regard to the receipt, possession, use, and sale of any item purchased from the Sites. By placing an Order, you represent that the products ordered will be used only in a lawful manner. Any offer for any product or service made on the Sites is void where prohibited. By placing an Order, you agree to receive a receipt for the purchase in electronic form. The receipt will be issued in the name of the person or company that placed the Order. 

For information on your ability to cancel an Order after it has been placed, please consult our Return, Cancellation & Exchange Policy (the “Return Policy”), which is hereby incorporated into these Terms by reference.

Our shipping services will be suspended due to warehouse closures on certain U.S. holidays. Please plan accordingly as Orders placed on these days will not be processed until the following business day. Once processed, Orders will be shipped using FedEx. All risk of loss for and title to products purchased on the Sites passes to you upon our delivery of the Order to FedEx.  

You will receive a shipping confirmation email containing your tracking number once your Order has been shipped. You can visit your account on the Sites to check the most up-to-date status of your Order. 

Shipping charges are non-refundable. If the delivery of an Order is refused or otherwise undeliverable, or if you return your order, you will be held responsible for the original shipping charges.

  1. Delivery

To help ensure that your Order is properly delivered, please take care to enter your address fully and correctly, with correct abbreviations and spaces inserted properly. You will receive a notification when your Order is out for delivery. If delivery cannot be completed, the carrier will leave a note and will attempt to contact you by phone. After two failed attempts, you must contact the carrier in order to continue with the delivery. If the delivery of an Order is refused or otherwise undeliverable, you will be held responsible for the original shipping charges and the cost of returning the package to us. While you will obtain a refund for the purchase price of the product(s), all applicable shipping costs will be deducted from your refund.  

We take no responsibility, and you hereby acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable to you in any way for, any delays or complications resulting from (1) your provision of incorrect information when placing an Order, (2) the carrier’s inability to complete delivery, or (3) any other matters relating to the shipment, transport, handling, or delivery of your Order after we have provided the Order to the carrier. 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION, PRODUCT AVAILABILITY & PRICING INFORMATION

JOZF strives to be as accurate as possible and eliminate errors on the Sites. However, there may be information on the Sites that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions and they may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers and/or availability. Certain products displayed on the Sites may have limited quantities and may not always be available, or may be available only in certain geographic regions.  

We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions and to change or update information on the Sites at any time and without prior notice (including after you have submitted an order). In the event that any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions affect an order you have already placed, or if you are otherwise dissatisfied with your Order, your sole remedy is to return, or exchange your Order, to the extent available under our Return Policy. The prices displayed on the Sites are subject to change without notice.

Similarly, we strive to display the colors of our products as accurately as possible, but we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s or other device’s display of these colors will always be accurate. Minor differences in color and other variations in the products displayed on the Sites may be possible as a result of differences in display technologies or other technical reasons.

 DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES

  1. THE SITES

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE SITES AND THE JOZF CONTENT ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." JOZF MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SITES OR THE CONTENT OR COMMUNICATIONS ON THE SITES, OR ANY WEBSITE OR OTHER CONTENT OR SERVICE THAT MAY BE ACCESSIBLE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY THROUGH THE SITES, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. JOZF DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES THAT THE SITES AND THE SOFTWARE, CONTENT, SERVICES, AND INFORMATION DISTRIBUTED THROUGH THE SITES ARE MERCHANTABLE, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, ACCURATE, TIMELY, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NEED, OR NON-INFRINGING. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY JOZF OR A REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY.

FOR CLARIFICATION, NOTHING IN THESE TERMS SEEKS TO EXCLUDE OR LIMIT ANY WARRANTIES THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. HOWEVER, YOU AGREE THAT THE TERMS OF THIS SECTION SHALL APPLY TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL JOZF, ITS OFFICERS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, SUPPLIERS, OR LICENSORS (THE “RELEASED PARTIES”) BE LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING DAMAGES (IF ANY) ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITES OR ANY PRODUCTS OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE SITES: (1) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; (2) ANY LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, REVENUE, OR PROFITS (WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT); (3) ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING FOR ANY DELAY OR FAILURE IN PERFORMANCE, ARISING FROM CAUSES BEYOND THEIR REASONABLE CONTROL; OR (5) ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE CONDUCT OF, OR YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH, OTHER USERS OF THE SITES, IN ALL CASES REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF THE RELEASED PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

 You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and (at JOZF’s option) defend JOZF from and against any and all liabilities, claims, damages, costs, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and costs, arising from (i) your breach of these Terms; (ii) any User Content shared you; (iii) any activity in which you engage on or through the Sites; and (iv) your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.

We reserve the right, at our expense, to assume exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and you agree to cooperate with us if and as requested by us in the defense and settlement of such matter. In any case, you agree never to settle any matter for which your indemnification is required absent our prior written consent. 

 DISPUTES; ARBITRATION

 If there is any controversy, claim, action, or dispute between you and JOZF arising out of or related to your use of the Sites or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Terms or any part of them (“Dispute”), you and JOZF agree to resolve the Dispute through the dispute resolution procedures set forth in this section, even if that Dispute arose prior to the Effective Date of these Terms. 

  1. Informal Dispute Resolution 

You and JOZF agree to first attempt to avoid the costs of formal dispute resolution by giving each other a full and fair opportunity to address and resolve the Dispute informally. The party with the complaint (the “Complaining Party”) shall send written notice to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) describing the facts and circumstances of the Dispute (a “Dispute Notice”).   

All Dispute Notices must: (i) be signed by the Complaining Party; (ii) include the Complaining Party’s name, physical address, and email address; (iii) describe with specificity the nature and basis of the Dispute in a manner sufficient for the Receiving Party to evaluate the merits of the Complaining Party’s individualized claim, and (iv) set forth the alleged damage and harm suffered and the specific relief sought with a calculation for it. Each Dispute Notice is limited to a single Dispute between you and JOZF. As such, your Dispute and the Disputes of other parties may not be combined into a single Dispute Notice.   

Dispute Notices shall be sent to:

  • To JOZF: You must send notice (i) by electronic mail to customerservice@johannaortiz.com and (ii) by first-class or certified mail to 255 Alhambra Circle Street 500, Coral Gables, Fl 33134.

  • To You: We will send notice by (i) first class or certified mail to the physical address we have on file for you (if any) and (ii) by email to the email address we have on file for you (if any). If we do not have any address on file for you, or if we are, for any reason, unable to provide notice via the contact information on file, we reserve the right to provide notice by other reasonable means.

You and JOZF will attempt to resolve the Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days beginning on the date that a valid Dispute Notice is sent (the “Informal Negotiation Period”). During the Informal Negotiation Period, the parties are required to conduct an individual meet-and-confer in person, or via teleconference or videoconference, that addresses only the Dispute between you and JOZF (the “Conference”). If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the Conference, but you will also need to participate. JOZF will participate in the Conference through one or more representatives, which may include our counsel. 

Both you and JOZF agree that the foregoing dispute resolution procedure (the “Informal Dispute Resolution Procedure”) is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration or litigation against the other party. If any aspect or requirement of the Informal Dispute Resolution Procedure has not been completed or satisfied, the parties agree that (i) a court of competent jurisdiction can enjoin the filing or prosecution of any arbitration or litigation and (ii) unless prohibited by law, no arbitration administrator shall accept or administer any arbitration or demand fees in connection with the Dispute.    

  1. Individual Arbitration

IF ANY DISPUTE CANNOT BE RESOLVED BY THE INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE, YOU AND JOZF AGREE THAT SUCH DISPUTE WILL BE DECIDED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE, AND YOU WAIVE, THE RIGHT TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS, AND THAT YOU MAY NOT PROCEED IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE IN COURT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE OR WILL BE MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION, INCLUDING DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS. 

All such Disputes shall be exclusively submitted to Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS) (www.jamsadr.com) for binding arbitration under its rules then in effect (as modified by these Terms), before one arbitrator to be mutually agreed upon by both parties. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards (https://www.jamsadr.com/consumer-minimum-standards/) (the “Minimum Standards”) if, and only if, it is determined by JAMS or the arbitrator that the Minimum Standards are applicable to the Dispute. The location of any hearings will be determined by the applicable JAMS rules, provided that if the claim is for $5,000 or less, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted (i) solely on the basis of the documents submitted to the arbitrator or (ii) through a non-appearance-based hearing by teleconference or videoconference. 

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute arising under or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable. For the avoidance of doubt, you and JOZF agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of this section of the Terms or the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. 

  1. Exceptions

Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, you or JOZF may (i) bring an individual claim or elect to resolve a Dispute in small claims court in the United States consistent with any applicable jurisdictional and monetary limits that may apply (so long as the action is litigated exclusively in small claims court and is not removed or appealed to a court of general jurisdiction) and (ii) file an individual claim in court to enjoin the infringement or other misuse of its intellectual property rights (so long as the action is brought and maintained on an individual basis). 

In addition, nothing in these Terms prohibits you or us from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf (or vice versa).

CHOICE OF LAW & FORUM

These Terms have been made in and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the United States (including federal arbitration law) and the state of New York, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles. Further, you and JOZF acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Any arbitration conducted pursuant to these Terms shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16).

Except for disputes or claims properly lodged in a small claims court in the United States, any disputes or claims not subject to the arbitration provision discussed above shall be resolved by a court located in the state of New York and you agree and submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim or action.  

JURISDICTION; EXPORT CONTROL  

JOZF controls and operates the Sites from within the United States and makes no representation or warranty that the Sites are appropriate or available for use or access in any location outside of the United States. Anyone using or accessing the Sites from outside the United States does so at their own risk and is responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including U.S. and international export control laws and regulations. 

MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS AND THE SITES

  1. Changes to these Terms. We reserve the right to modify these Terms at any time. When we do so, we will update the “Effective Date” above. For material changes, we will seek to supplement such notice by email, a pop-up message on the Sites, another other prominent notice on the Sites, or by other reasonable means. Your use of the Sites following any changes to these Terms will constitute your acceptance of the Terms as modified. 

  1. Termination of these Terms. These Terms will continue to apply to you until terminated by either you or JOZF. We may terminate these Terms or suspend your access to the Sites at any time if we believe you have breached any of these Terms, if we stop providing the Sites or any material component thereof, or as we believe necessary to comply with applicable law. You may terminate these Terms at any time by emailing customerservice@johannaortiz.com. If you or we terminate these Terms, or if we suspend your access to the Sites, you agree that (i) your right to access and use the Sites ceases immediately and (ii) we shall have no liability or responsibility to you, and (except as expressly provided for in these Terms) we will not refund any amounts that you have already paid. 

The following provisions shall survive the termination of these Terms: This section; the sections OWNERSHIP OF THE SITES (excluding the license granted to you), VIDEO CONTENT ON THE SITES, USER CONTENT & LICENSE GRANT TO JOZF, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISPUTE & ARBITRATION, CHOICE OF LAW & FORUM, and MISCELLANEOUS; and any other provisions of these Terms that, either explicitly or by their nature, must remain in effect even after termination of these Terms. 

  1. Modifications to the Sites. We also may change, restrict access to, suspend or discontinue the Sites, or any portion of the Sites, at any time, with or without notice. You acknowledge and agree that JOZF will not be liable to you or to any third party for any such termination, modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Sites.  

MISCELLANEOUS

  1. Interpretation. In these Terms, the words “include,” “includes,” and “including” are used in an illustrative sense and shall be construed as if followed by “without limitation.” Titles and headings to sections herein are inserted for the convenience of reference only and are not intended to be a part of or to affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.

When these Terms refer to a decision or action that will or may be made or taken by JOZF, such decision or action shall be made, taken, or refrained from in JOZF’s sole discretion and judgment. 

  1. No waiver. If JOZF does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in these Terms (or which JOZF has the benefit of under any applicable law or regulation), such action or inaction shall not be taken to be a formal waiver of JOZF’s rights, and all such rights or remedies shall still be available to JOZF.

  1. Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid by a court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.

  1. Entire Agreement. These Terms (which, for avoidance of doubt, including all Additional Rules) set forth the entire understanding and agreement between us with respect to your use of the Sites.

  1. Assignment. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms without our express prior written consent. We may assign, transfer, or sublicense any or all of our rights or obligations under these Terms without restriction.
