YOU AND WINSTON BRANDS AGREE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW THAT THE EXCLUSIVE MEANS OF RESOLVING ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES IS BINDING ARBITRATION. INSTEAD OF SUING

as a representative of others or joining in any arbitration proceedings brought by any other person, acting as a private attorney general, or joining or consolidating Claims with claims or proceedings brought by any other person (“Class
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the Claim and setting forth the specific relief sought. All notices to Winston Brands shall be sent to
the following address: Winston Brands, 2521 Busse Rd. Elk Grove Village IL 60007. All notices to you will be sent to the email provided in your account. Upon receipt of such notice, the other party shall have a sixty (60) day period

the expiration of such sixty-day cure period, you or Winston Brands may commence an arbitration proceeding. Unless otherwise agreed to by you and Winston Brands in writing, the arbitration of any Claim under these Terms shall be referred
to JAMS under its rules and procedures, be decided before a single arbitrator with substantial experience in the internet industry, and will follow substantive law in adjudicating the dispute, except that this section will be construed
as a written agreement to arbitrate pursuant to the FAA. You and Winston Brands agree that this section satisfies the writing requirement of the FAA. The JAMS rules are available on its site at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration of any
Claim shall be conducted in the State of New Jersey, and for any non-frivolous Claim that do not exceed $10,000 Winston Brands will: (1) pay all costs of the arbitration; (2) if you prefer will conduct the arbitration by telephone,

standards for procedural fairness, the JAMS rules and/or minimum standards for arbitration procedures in that regard will control. Neither party shall sue the other party other than as provided herein or for enforcement of this clause
or for the arbitrator’s award; and any such suit may be brought only in Federal District Court or, if any such court lacks jurisdiction, in any state court that has jurisdiction. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local
court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, or enforceability of these Terms including any claim that all or any part of these Terms
is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence shall not apply to the clause entitled “Class Action Waiver”.
All parties, including related third parties, shall retain the right to seek adjudication in a small claims tribunal for disputes within the scope of such tribunal’s jurisdiction. Any dispute, which cannot be adjudicated within the jurisdiction
of a small claims tribunal, shall be resolved by binding arbitration, with the exception of any Claim or action for indemnification, contribution, interpleader, or injunctive relief arising out of a Claim, which Claims or actions shall
not be subject to arbitration. Any appeal of a judgment from a small claims tribunal shall be resolved by binding arbitration.
