1) Understanding these Terms and Conditions
When certain words and phrases are used in these Terms and Conditions, they have specific meanings (these are known as 'defined terms'). You can identify these defined terms because they start with capital letters (even if they are not at the start of a sentence). Where a defined term is used, it has the meaning given to it in the section of the Terms and Conditions where it was defined (you can find these meanings by looking at the sentence where the defined term is included in brackets and speech marks).
When we refer to "HAUTE SKIN", "we", "us" or "our", we mean HAUTE SKIN LLC or, where relevant, its affiliates. Where we refer to "you" or "your" we mean you, the person using the Services.
We have used headings to help you understand these Terms and Conditions and to easily locate information. These Terms and Conditions are only available in the English language. We will not file copies of the contracts between us and you relating to our supply of the Services, or between you and the Partners relating to the sale of the products, so we recommend that you print or save a copy of these Terms and Conditions for your records (but please note that we may amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time so please check the Website regularly, and each time you use the Services to order products, to ensure you understand the legal terms which apply at that time).

17) Governing Law, Jurisdiction, and for US Customers Arbitration
Anything related to your order, use of the Websites or these Terms and Conditions are governed by English law. The courts of England shall have the exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute or claim relating to these Terms and Conditions.
For US customers, these Terms and Conditions, services, as well as all other aspects of your transaction contemplated by these Terms and Conditions, shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws or choice of laws principles.
Any dispute or claim between you and us (including the websites operated by us) relating in any way to these Terms and Conditions, as well as all other aspects of your transaction contemplated by these Terms and Conditions, including but not limited to your use of the services or websites or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of these Terms and Conditions to arbitrate, shall be determined on an individual basis by arbitration in the County of New York in the State of New York before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.
Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. If either us or you bring any action or proceeding by reason of any breach or alleged breach of the other party hereunder, the party prevailing in such action or proceeding shall be entitled to recover its reasonable expenses in connection therewith (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) to the extent allowed under the law, from the other party. The term ‘prevailing party’ means the party obtaining substantially the relief sought, whether by compromise, settlement, or judgment.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms and Conditions. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of these Terms and Conditions as a court would.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuses of intellectual property rights.
