    ARBITRATION

    Dispute resolution and arbitration

    By using this Site, you agree that any and all disputes, claims or controversies that you may have against KOURAI arising out of or relating to or connected in any way to (i) your use of this Site (ii) any services obtained from or provided by KOURAI or (iii) this Agreement (including the interpretation and scope of this clause and the arbitrability of the dispute), shall be resolved exclusively by mandatory, binding arbitration initiated through and administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). You further agree that arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by AAA, and that any arbitration proceeding, if necessary, will be held in Los Angeles, California or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by KOURAI and you. Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In order to initiate arbitration with the AAA, you may be responsible for paying a filing fee to the AAA, however, in the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, KOURAI will reimburse as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. There will be no right or authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action or representative basis. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU AND KOURAI ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION WITH RESPECT TO THE CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION. You are thus giving up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, and not a judge or jury.

    All claims you bring against KOURAI must be resolved in accordance with this arbitration provision. All claims filed or brought by you contrary to this provision will be considered improperly filed and void. Should you file a claim contrary to this arbitration provision, KOURAI will notify you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you must promptly withdraw the claim. If you fail to promptly withdraw the claim after receiving written notice from KOURAI, KOURAI may recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred to enforce this arbitration provision.

    Notice; Process

    A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail, Federal Express, UPS, or Express Mail (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). KOURAI‘s address for Notice is: info@KOURAI.com.

    The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or KOURAI may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or KOURAI shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. All documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of the arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law.

    Enforceability

    If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision was not contained herein.

  29. Miscellaneous

This privacy statement was last updated on May 23, 2022.

If we make important changes to this privacy statement, we will post a notice on our website and/or contact our customers as appropriate or as required by applicable law.

  1. What does this privacy statement cover?
  2. This statement describes KOURAI’s customer privacy practices for our KOURAI -branded global websites, KOURAI services, KOURAI customer sales and marketing activities, and KOURAI customer services and support functions, among others.

  3. What personal, user and product data does KOURAI collect and how does KOURAI use and share the personal data it collects?
  4. KOURAI may collect certain categories of data about you when you use our websites; use our services; receive our marketing communications; interact with our customer service and support teams; and in other contexts. The data we collect can be broadly categorized as follows:

    • Personal Data: This is individually identifiable data that you may choose to provide us. This may include basic information such as your email address and phone number, or more sensitive information such as your full date of birth or your payment information.
    • User Data: This is data that we collect from users of our services. User data could include personal data such as your unique KOURAI user ID or account username and password, but sometimes this user data is anonymous or “pseudonymous”, i.e., certain user data that could be made identifiable if associated with personal data.
    • Location Data: This is data we collect that help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize our Service and for other uses consistent with this Privacy Statement.

    KOURAI has various uses for your personal and user data you provide to us. Here are the principal contexts in which we may use, retain and share your personal and user data:

    • Websites and Account Management: Most often, you may browse our websites without providing any personal data to us. However, if you choose to establish a user account with KOURAI, engage in e-commerce, sign up for marketing communications, or interact with our customer service teams or participate in a forum on our website, we will likely need to collect some personal or user data from you. In addition, our web servers automatically collect certain data by default, such as IP addresses and other activity logs. This type of data is used for website security and site improvement purposes. Much of that data is not readily identifiable and is usually kept anonymous. In order to maintain and improve our websites, KOURAI uses third party hosting, content management and security partners, vendors and suppliers.
    • Sales: If you decide to purchase a service from KOURAI, we will need to collect certain personal data from you, including payment-related information. Typically, we use third party partners, vendors and suppliers, such as payment processing companies during our sales.
    • Marketing & Social Media: You may choose to receive KOURAI marketing communications, participate in an event/contest/promotion with us, or connect with KOURAI via social media. If you do so, we will collect certain personal data about you, such as your contact information, social media profile information and, in order to determine your eligibility for a contest or promotion, your full or partial dates of birth. KOURAI may share your personal data with our marketing agencies and partners to carry out our marketing campaigns, contests and promotions. If you wish to unsubscribe from our marketing, please follow the opt-out link in the communications you receive from us; update your contact preferences in your KOURAI account settings; or click here.
    • Product Registration: If you use KOURAI services, you may choose to establish a KOURAI user account. A KOURAI user account profile may include your username, password, settings, preferences, contact information, device ID information, and related data. KOURAI may share this information with other KOURAI subsidiaries and affiliates and vendors and suppliers, such as third-party hosting partners. Certain KOURAI product settings, preference information, applications history and location-based information may be used by KOURAI product development and improvement and customer service teams if you choose to enable enhanced customer support services.
    • Customer Service & Support: If you choose to interact with KOURAI customer service and support – whether it be via our website, social media, chat, email or phone – KOURAI customer service teams (some of whom work for outsourced vendors and suppliers of KOURAI) may have access to your account information, product information, contact information and payment information. You may also be required to answer certain security questions to verify your identity and your call or session with KOURAI customer support may be recorded for quality and training purposes.
    • Job Opportunities: You may choose to apply for employment opportunities at KOURAI through the KOURAI website. If you complete an application for a job at KOURAI, we may collect your contact information, job history info and certain other information that may be required or allowed under applicable laws to screen candidates for employment.
