ARBITRATION NOTICE: Except as described in the Disputes section, you agree that any dispute between you and FloraCraft will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration. That means that an arbitrator, not a judge or jury, will decide the dispute and that you waive your right to bring an action in court. You also waive your right to bring a dispute as or participate in, a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action or arbitration.
We may offer a feature that has its own terms and conditions in addition to these Terms (“Additional Terms”). If there is a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will apply (unless the Additional Terms state that they do not apply).

A Site may also permit interactions between the Site and a third-party website or online feature, including applications that connect a Site or your profile on a Site with a third-party site or feature.

At our request, you will provide us with documentation to verify your compliance with these Terms.

- Disclaim all warranties, express or implied, in connection with each Site, including (but not limited to) any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, or custom.
- Do not represent or warrant that any Site (or Site Content) will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that a Site or its server is free of viruses or other harmful components. You are responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for anti-virus protection and accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to the Site for any reconstruction of any lost data.
- Do not represent or warrant that the information (including any instructions) on any Site is accurate, complete, or reliable, or error-free; and without defects, viruses or harmful content; or that your use of the Site will be uninterrupted
Unless required by law, and only to the extent required by law, we are not a party to and do not monitor, any transaction between users and third-party providers of products or services.
- Limitation of Liability. The FloraCraft Parties will not be liable for special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, a Site or Site Content. The FloraCraft Parties will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a distributed denial-of-service attack, viruses, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, network, data, or other proprietary material due to your use of the Site (or access to any Site Content) or any services or items obtained through the Site or to your downloading of any material posted on the Site, or on any third-party site or content linked to it. In no event will the total liability to you by the FloraCraft Parties for any claims, damages, losses, and causes of action exceed the amount you paid us, if any, for accessing the applicable Site or, if you did not pay us, $10.00 USD. This limitation on damages is not intended to limit any obligation to pay prevailing party costs or fees as required by law.
- Indemnity. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the FloraCraft Parties from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs, and expenses, including (but not limited to) attorney’s fees arising from: (a) your breach of any of these Terms or Additional Terms, (b) your content and materials, including (but not limited to) submissions and User Content, (c) your use of any Site, Site Content, or Site features as permitted by us or (d) your violation of law or any agreement you have with a third party.
- Disputes. You agree that these Terms and your use of any Site is governed by the laws of the State of Michigan, United States of America. Both you and the FloraCraft Parties waive the right to a trial by jury and the right to bring or resolve any dispute as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action.
Except for the FloraCraft Parties’ right to seek injunctive or equitable relief in a state and federal court located in Kent County, Michigan (or any other court with jurisdiction over the parties), the parties each agree to finally settle all disputes arising out of or relating to any Site only through binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined arbitration rules procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”). In arbitration, there is no judge or jury, and review is limited. With limited exceptions, the arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. If JAMS does not set a hearing date within 14 days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then a party may elect to have the arbitration administered by a mutually-agreed arbitration service. If an in-person hearing is required, it will take place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, or closer your hometown if the JAMS rules so require. A dispute will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions or class arbitrations; provided, however, if for any reason a court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. FloraCraft will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees to conduct the arbitration (but not travel or other costs you incur). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In no event will you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive, or other equitable relief or to enjoin or restrain the operation or exploitation of any Site.
- Miscellaneous. If any of the provisions of these Terms are found unlawful, void, or unenforceable by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be considered severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the other provisions. This is our entire agreement regarding this subject, and these Terms supersede and replace any prior agreements regarding this subject. If FloraCraft does not act after you or others breach these Terms, it does not waive FloraCraft’s right to act regarding such breach or any other breach in the future. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against FloraCraft because FloraCraft has drafted them. Provisions of these Terms that would logically survive termination will survive the termination of these Terms, including (but not limited to) Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability, Disputes).
- Permissions. If an activity is not expressly authorized by these Terms, you do not have permission to do it. To request permission to access or use a Site or Site Content in a way that is not expressly authorized, for example, to link to a Site with a link that is not a plain-text link or use Site Content on your website, send an email to CS@FloraCraft.com. You understand and agree that by submitting such a request, you must wait for permission to be granted before undertaking the requested activity, and we may or may not respond or grant your request.

- Updates to Terms. You agree that we may update these Terms at any time (“Updated Terms”) by posting the Updated Terms on the Sites so that they are accessible via a link on the home page and that if you use any of the Sites (or do some other act that we reasonably specify) after we have posted the Updated Terms, you agree to them.
