from or on behalf of the Company, you expressly consent to receive marketing and/or non-
marketing text messages from Company and any and all others texting on Company’s behalf,
including, but not limited to, its service partners, including text messages which may utilize or be
sent using an automated system, an autodialer, an automated system for the selection and/or
dialing of telephone numbers, an automatic telephone dialing system (“ATDS”), and/or any other
type of systems, softwares, hardwares, or machines (no matter how they may be named or
classified, and whether used alone or in conjunction with one another) that may use an automated procedure or process for sending messages, at the mobile telephone number associated with your opt-in. You may opt out of these communications at any time, and your consent to receive marketing text messages is not required and is not a condition to purchase any goods or services.
As set forth above, Company and/or its service providers and others may use an autodialer and/or related systems to deliver text messages (including, but not limited to, SMS and MMS) to the phone number(s) that you provide. Text messaging may include one-time or recurring texts
related to, but not limited to, the following programs:
- Marketing and Promotional Programs: By opting into a Company marketing Program, you can expect to receive recurring marketing, promotional, advertising, informational and other similar messages regarding sales, discounts, loyalty programs, reward certificates, abandoned cart reminders, and other offers, in varying frequencies at the mobile telephone number provided when opting in.

Participant Device and Service Requirements

Children under the age of 16 may not participate in text message communications with the
Company and parents or legal guardians may not agree to these Terms on their behalf. If we
become aware that a child under 16 has provided or attempted to provide us with personal
information, we will use our best efforts to remove the information permanently from our files. If
you are under the age of 18 but at least 16 years of age, you may participate only under the
supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these Terms. If you are a parent or legal guardian agreeing to these Terms for the benefit of a child between the ages of 16 and 18, be advised that you are fully responsible for his or her participation in any Program,
including, without limitation, all legal liability that he or she may incur.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Michigan, without reference to
conflict of laws principles. Any suit to enforce this Agreement, to the extent such suit is excluded
from the binding arbitration agreement set forth herein and below, shall be brought exclusively
in the State and U.S. District Courts located in Michigan and the Parties hereby submit to the
personal jurisdiction of such courts and waive any venue objection.
You warrant and represent to us that you have all necessary rights, power, and authority to agree to these Terms and perform your obligations hereunder, and nothing contained in these Terms or in the performance of such obligations will place you in breach of any other contract or
obligation. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein will
not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found
to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent
necessary so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Any new features, changes, updates or improvements of any Program shall be subject to these Terms unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing. We reserve the right to change these Terms from time to time. Any updates to these Terms shall be communicated to you. You acknowledge your responsibility to review these Terms from time to time and to be aware of any such changes. By continuing to participate in any Program after any such changes, you accept these Terms, as modified.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. It contains procedures for MANDATORY
BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING
MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
WE BOTH AGREE TO ARBITRATE: You and Company agree to resolve any claims relating
to these Terms, or your receipt of text messages from Company, or anyone sending text
messages on Company’s behalf, including but not limited to, its service providers, through final
and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened
to violate Company’s intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights). Under such circumstances Company may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Site, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
WHAT IS ARBITRATION: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to
resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral
arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any
provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall
be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
ARBITRATION PROCEDURES: The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and
enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS.
Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be referred to
and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration
Rules and Procedures. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in this
Agreement to Arbitrate, the rules set forth in this Agreement to Arbitrate will govern. The JAMS
Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at
http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. To initiate arbitration, you or Company must do the
(1) Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim and the
amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at
www.jamsadr.com. (2) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate
filing fee to your local JAMS office or to JAMS, Two Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San
Francisco, CA 94111. (3) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules,
except that for claims of less than $1,000, you will be obligated to pay $25 and Company will
pay all other administrative costs and fees. In addition, for claims of less than $1,000, Company
will reimburse you for the $25 fee if the arbitrator rules in your favor. Arbitration under this
agreement shall be held in the United States county where you live or work, Michigan, or any
other location we mutually agree to, subject to Michigan law. The arbitration may award on an
individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief). Any
judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent
AUTHORITY OF ARBITRATOR: The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of
you and Company, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with
any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of
all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the
Arbitration Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of
decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Company.
NO CLASS ACTIONS: You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may
not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative
action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with
other arbitrations are not allowed.
WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL
AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A
JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by
arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than
rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any
litigation should arise between you and Company in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate
or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND COMPANY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS
TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU
ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT
WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.
OPT-OUT OF AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by
Address; (4) Your Phone Number; (5) and clear statement that you wish to opt out of this
