Effective Date: November 15, 2022
Terms & Conditions
The Talbots, Inc. and all affiliated companies and brands (“Talbots,” “we,” or “us”) provides this website, its constituent webpages, and related websites (together, the “Sites”), and sells products to customers, all subject to your agreement to these Terms & Conditions, which are final. By using the Sites, signing up for promotional mailings and emails, purchasing products from us, and/or registering with us, you agree to be bound fully by the provisions below, without change, as are published at such time. You should periodically visit this webpage to review the most current terms. Using our website after any of these changes means you accept any such changes. If you do not agree to these Terms & Conditions, please do not use this website.
THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS ARE AN ENFORCEABLE CONTRACT BETWEEN US WHICH AFFECTS OUR RESPECTIVE LEGAL RIGHTS AND INCLUDES A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION REQUIREMENT AND CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER IN SECTION 2, WHICH IS SET FORTH BELOW.
We recommend you print out a copy of these Terms & Conditions for your records and can download them here. Upon request by you or us, we each agree to sign and provide to each other a signed copy of these Terms & Conditions.
1. PRIVACY & SECURITY
2. LEGAL DISPUTES – THE REQUIREMENT TO ARBITRATE
We hold our relationships with our customers in the highest regard. We work hard to make things right with every customer. On occasion, a third party may be necessary to help us resolve our disputes, and this Section of the Terms & Conditions (the "arbitration agreement") limits us to arbitration (or small claims court, if a claim qualifies) in all such instances.
YOU AND TALBOTS AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES THAT CANNOT BE RESOLVED INFORMALLY SHALL BE RESOLVED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS IN EITHER ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS COURT ONLY. YOU AND TALBOTS AGREE TO WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY, TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY WAY IN A CLASS ACTION OR CLASS ARBITRATION, AND TO RESOLVE THEIR DISPUTES IN COURTS OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT.
This arbitration agreement covers all complaints, demands, and claims of any kind, including, but not limited to, those arising out of or related to these Terms & Conditions, the use and operation of the Website, communications from and promotions by or behalf of Talbots, and the purchase and use of all products and services offered by Talbots (each a “Dispute,” and, collectively, the "Disputes"). Disputes include, but are not limited to, statutory, regulatory, constitutional, contractual, common law, and tax-related claims, including claims alleging of negligence, fraud, and misrepresentation.
This arbitration agreement applies to all agents, attorneys, contractors, subcontractors, service providers, employees, and all others acting for, on behalf of, or under the direction of Talbots, including all affiliated companies (including, but not limited to, parents, subsidiaries, and sibling corporations). This agreement is binding on you and Talbots, as well as our respective heirs, successors, and assigns.
This arbitration agreement is governed exclusively by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and federal law, and not by any state or local laws, or the laws of other countries, concerning or purporting to place limits on the availability and scope of arbitration or which include requirements beyond or different from those imposed by the FAA. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is held to be unenforceable for any reason, the remaining parts of this arbitration agreement shall remain in effect to the fullest extent permitted by law and in a manner that facilitates resolution of Disputes in arbitration in a way that is cost-effective to all parties. If any other provision of the Terms & Conditions renders unenforceable any aspect of this arbitration agreement, such provision shall be treated as null, void, and of no effect.
You have the right to opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending written notice stating your intention to opt out to: firstname.lastname@example.org, within thirty (30) days after your first becoming subject to it. Opting out of this arbitration agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with Talbots nor does it eliminate or change any other rights or requirements of the Terms & Conditions.
MANDATORY SETTLEMENT PROCESS
Before You and Talbots can seek to resolve a Dispute in arbitration or small claims court, this mandatory sixty (60) day settlement process must be completed. To initiate this process, the claiming party must send to the other a short, written statement (a “Dispute Statement”) explaining their Dispute in sufficient detail for the other party to understand and investigate it, along with a proposal for resolving it, including any money being claimed and how that dollar amount was calculated. You agree to send Dispute Statements by email to email@example.com or by certified mail, return receipt requested, to The Talbots, Inc. One Talbots Drive, Hingham, MA 02043 (Attention: Legal Dept.).
Once a Dispute Statement is received, You and Talbots shall work in good faith to resolve the Dispute for a period of sixty (60) days. At the conclusion of the sixty (60) day period, if the Dispute has not been resolved, You and Talbots thereafter each have the right to resolve the Dispute in small claims court or through arbitration in compliance with the requirements of this arbitration agreement. All applicable statutes of limitation shall be suspended during the sixty (60) day informal settlement process.
ARBITRATION RULES AND REQUIREMENTS
While there is no judge or jury in an arbitration, the arbitrator has the power to award the same individual relief and must construe and apply the Terms & Conditions in the same way as a court would. If any cause of action or claim for relief cannot for any reason be addressed in arbitration, you and Talbots agree that any court proceedings shall be stayed pending the final resolution in arbitration of all arbitrable causes of action and claims for relief. The results of such an arbitration shall be binding in all court proceedings. The arbitrator also has the sole authority to and shall address all claims or arguments by both parties concerning the formation, legality, and enforceability of this arbitration clause, the scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of any claim or issue arising between us.
Any court of competent jurisdiction will have the authority to enforce all aspects of the arbitration agreement (including the requirement to complete the informal settlement process described above before filing a claim in arbitration) and, if necessary, to enjoin the filing or prosecution of arbitrations and/or the assessment of fees or costs by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other arbitral organization or arbitrator.
If the AAA is for any reason unavailable, unable, or unwilling to handle an arbitration assigned to it under this arbitration agreement (including under the Mass Arbitration Rules, below), and You and Talbots cannot agree on an alternative organization or arbitrator, You or Talbots may petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint an organization or individual to conduct the arbitration consistent with the requirements of this arbitration agreement.
General Arbitration Rules. The arbitration process will differ depending on whether your claim is pursued individually or as part of a Mass Arbitration (as defined below). In the case of a Mass Arbitration, if there is a conflict between these General Arbitration Rules and the Mass Arbitration Rules (set forth below), the Mass Arbitration Rules will control. In the absence of such a conflict and in situations not involving a Mass Arbitration, these General Arbitration Rules will control.
Arbitrations shall be before a single neutral arbitrator. Arbitrations brought by consumers shall be governed by this arbitration agreement and the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules and the AAA Consumer Due Process Protocol, which you can find here: https://www.adr.org/consumer. All other arbitrations shall be governed by this arbitration agreement and the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules and the AAA Optional Appellate Rules, which you can find here: https://www.adr.org/commercial. To the extent there is a conflict between this arbitration agreement and any applicable AAA rules and protocols, the provisions of this arbitration agreement shall control.
Disputes that involve an individual claim for less than $25,000 (US) in actual or statutory damages (but not including any amounts claimed for attorneys’ fees and incidental, consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages, and excluding any damage multipliers), must be resolved exclusively through binding non-appearance-based arbitration based solely on the written submissions of the parties, including sworn statements. All other arbitrations will be conducted by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions, including sworn statements, and will not involve any personal appearances by parties or witnesses. Judgment on an arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction to do so.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the AAA and to: The Talbots, Inc. One Talbots Drive, Hingham, MA 02043 (Attn: Legal Department). The AAA’s address is American Arbitration Association Case Filing Services, 1101 Laurel Oak Road, Suite 100, Voorhees, NJ 08043 (the “AAA Notice Address”). You may also send a copy to the AAA online at https://www.adr.org.
Mass Arbitration Rules. If twenty-five (25) or more claimants file, or indicate an intention to file, demands for arbitration against Talbots raising substantially identical Disputes, and counsel for the claimants are the same or coordinated across such Disputes (a “Mass Arbitration”), these special rules apply.
Claimants that are part of a Mass Arbitration (each a “Mass Arbitration claimant”) must complete the sixty (60) day informal settlement process (described above) before proceeding to arbitration. Counsel for claimants and Talbots shall agree to the submission of a single Dispute Statement for all Mass Arbitration claimants, but only if that statement identifies each Mass Arbitration claimant by name and mailing address.
If the settlement process is unsuccessful, counsel for Mass Arbitration claimants and Talbots shall each select three (3) Mass Arbitration claimants proceed to arbitration (each a “bellwether arbitration”), each with a different arbitrator, followed by a mandatory mediation involving all Mass Arbitration claimants. All statutes of limitation shall be suspended for the duration of the informal settlement process, the bellwether arbitrations, and mediation.
If any demands for arbitration have been filed by Mass Arbitration claimants other than those selected for the six (6) bellwether arbitrations (the “non-bellwether claimants”), they shall promptly be dismissed without prejudice upon selection of the bellwether arbitration claimants. For such dismissed arbitrations, no arbitration fees or costs shall be owed or imposed by the arbitral organization beyond any initial filing fees. The bellwether arbitrations shall commence immediately upon the filing of all requests for dismissal by the non-bellwether claimants. All bellwether arbitrations shall require a reasoned decision from the arbitrator and be completed within one hundred twenty (120) days after commencement unless otherwise ordered by the arbitrator or agreed to by the parties.
Upon the resolution of all of the bellwether arbitrations, counsel for Talbots and counsel for claimants shall participate promptly and in good faith in non-binding confidential mediation for a period of not less than sixty (60) days in a good faith effort to resolve all Disputes of the Mass Arbitration claimants under the Mediation Procedures of the AAA. https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Mediation%20Procedures%20of%20the%20American%20Arbitration%20Association%20Oct%2001%2C%202009.pdf
If the bellwether arbitrations and the mandatory mediation are unsuccessful in resolving the Disputes of all Mass Arbitration claimants, those Mass Arbitration claimants whose claims have not been resolved shall then have the right to pursue their claims on an individual basis, but only with FairClaims, Inc. (“FairClaims”), to be arbitrated under FairClaims’ Small Claims Rules & Procedures, which are available at https://s3.amazonaws.com/arbi-website/fairclaims-rules/FairClaims-Small-Claims-Rules.pdf. If any cause of action or claim for relief cannot for any reason be addressed by FairClaims, you and Talbots agree that any court proceedings shall be stayed pending the final resolution in arbitration of all arbitrable causes of action and claims for relief. The results of such FairClaims arbitrations shall be binding in those court proceedings. Decisions from the bellwether arbitrations shall be admissible in arbitrations filed with FairClaims. If for any reason FairClaims cannot handle a claim filed under this paragraph, You and Talbots shall negotiate in good faith for the substitution of an alternative arbitration organization for that claim whose fees and rules are comparable to those of FairClaims.
