H. Payment and Delivery
The prices for our products (the “Price”) are determined at our sole and exclusive discretion and may be modified from time to time. When you place an order through our Website or Services, you will be charged for the products according to the Price at the time the order is placed. In the event a product is listed with an incorrect Price or with incorrect information due to a typographical error, error in pricing, or error in product information received from our suppliers, we have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for the incorrectly listed product, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your bank or credit card charged. If your bank or credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we will issue
a credit to your bank or credit card account in the amount of the charge. The Prices exclude local, state, federal or other taxes and fees (the “Taxes”). The Prices also exclude delivery fees (the “Delivery Fees”). Where applicable, you are responsible for the payment of Taxes and Delivery Fees.
When you submit an order, your credit card will be charged through Shopify or other third-party payment service providers. Payments must be charged successfully before we can process and submit your order for delivery. In the event that your payment method is declined, we may attempt to re-process the charge. Additionally, our third-party payment service providers may request, and we may receive, updated credit card information from your bank or credit card issuer. If this updated information is provided to us and our third- party service providers, we may use such updated information to process the payment. We are not responsible for any fees that your bank or credit card issuer may apply. If your bank or credit card issuer reverses a charge, we may bill you directly and seek payment by another method.
Although when you place an order we may provide estimates of delivery times, we do not guarantee that you will receive those items from our third-party carrier during that time and are not responsible for late deliveries. The risk of loss and title for products purchased from us by you passes to you once the products are delivered to the third-party carrier.

O. Jurisdicational Issues
Somadome makes no representation that the Website operates (or is legally permitted to operate) in all geographic areas or that the Information or the Website are appropriate or available for use in all locations.

P. Dispute Resolution/Governing Law
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding that body of law relating to conflict of laws. The parties agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, will be settled, first, by mediation to take place within 30 days of the written notice of such dispute and, second, if the parties are unable to settle such dispute by mediation in such 30-day period, then by binding arbitration by a single arbitrator in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1280 et seq., and the then current rules and procedures of JAMS. The arbitration will be a confidential proceeding, closed to the general public. The arbitration will take place in Sacramento, California, and be conducted in the English language. The decision rendered by the arbitrator will be binding upon the parties hereto, and any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties adopt and agree to implement the JAMS Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedure with respect to any final award in an arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement. For the sake of clarity, nothing in this paragraph will affect Somadome’s ability to seek from a court injunctive or equitable relief at any time. In no event will the arbitrator have the authority to award punitive damages or any other damages expressly limited by this Agreement. Neither Somadome nor you are entitled to arbitrate or otherwise resolve any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private-attorney action and the arbitrator will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis.
Q. Exclusions and Limitations
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

You agree that Somadome may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to this Agreement, by email, regular or expedited mail, text communication, Website postings or other means of communication.
