13. DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
13.1 Governing Law
With the exception of certain matters governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) as described below, these Terms, and any and all claims, disputes, or other legal proceedings by or between you and us (including but not limited to any claims or disputes that are in any way related to or arising out of these Terms or your use of or access to the Service), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Colorado, without regard to any principles of conflicts of law.
13.2 Arbitration Provision and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. YOU AGREE THAT BY USING THIS WEBSITE OR THE SERVICE, ENROLLING IN OR USING THE PROGRAM, OR OTHERWISE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING. ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
You and we agree that any and all claims and disputes arising from or relating in any way to the subject matter of these Terms, your use of the Website, Service, or Program (including, but not limited to, your receipt of texts or calls through the Program or any other texts or calls you have ever received from or on behalf of us), or your and our dealings with one another shall be finally settled and resolved through BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION as described in this section.
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT “CLAIMS” AND “DISPUTES” SUBJECT TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION THEREFORE ARE TO BE GIVEN THE BROADEST POSSIBLE MEANING AND INCLUDE CLAIMS OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, INITIAL CLAIMS, COUNTERCLAIMS, CROSS-CLAIMS AND THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS, AND CLAIMS BASED ON ANY CONSTITUTION, STATUTE, REGULATION, ORDINANCE, COMMON LAW RULE (INCLUDING RULES RELATING TO CONTRACTS, TORTS, NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, OR ANY OTHER INTENTIONAL WRONGS) AND EQUITY. THEY INCLUDE CLAIMS AND DISPUTES THAT SEEK RELIEF OF ANY TYPE, INCLUDING DAMAGES AND/OR INJUNCTIVE, DECLARATORY, OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section. The arbitration will be conducted by Judicial Arbiter Group, Inc. (“JAG”) using one arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAG arbitrators in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAG. If JAG is unable or unwilling to arbitrate a dispute, then the dispute may be referred to any other arbitration organization or arbitrator that you and we both agree upon in writing or that is appointed pursuant to section 5 of the FAA.
For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the arbitrator, you, and we must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on telephone or video/online appearances and/or written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in the County of Denver, State of Colorado, unless you and Schwazze otherwise agree in writing. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Generally, arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court and review by a court is limited. Neither you nor we will be able to have a court or jury trial or participate in a class action or class arbitration. You and we each understand and agree that by agreeing to resolve any dispute through individual arbitration, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL. ANY DISPUTE SHALL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEEDING. The arbitrator may not consolidate the claims of multiple parties.
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, SERVICE, OR PROGRAM, OR YOUR AND OUR DEALINGS WITH ONE ANOTHER MUST BE COMMENCED IN ARBITRATION WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. AFTER THAT ONE (1)-YEAR PERIOD, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW TIME LIMITATIONS OTHER THAN THOSE SET FORTH IN SUCH STATE’S STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS LAWS. IN SUCH CASES, THE APPLICABLE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS PROVIDED FOR UNDER THE LAWS OF SUCH STATE SHALL APPLY.
You and we agree that all challenges to the validity and applicability of the arbitration provision—i.e. whether a particular claim or dispute is subject to arbitration—shall be determined exclusively by the arbitrator. Notwithstanding any provision in these terms to the contrary, you and we agree that if the class action waiver above is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and any proceeding shall be brought and proceed exclusively in the state and federal courts of competent jurisdiction located in the County of Denver, State of Colorado. If the arbitration provision in this section is found unenforceable or to not apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding shall be brought and proceed exclusively in the state and federal courts of competent jurisdiction located in the County of Denver, State of Colorado, and you and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of each of these courts for the purpose of litigating such claims or disputes, and you and we still waive any right to a jury trial and waive any right to initiate or proceed in a class or collective action. You also remain bound by any and all limitations on liability and damages included in these Terms. This arbitration agreement and class action waiver shall survive termination of your use of the Website, Service, or Program, and/or termination of our dealings with you.
This arbitration agreement involves interstate commerce and, therefore, shall be governed by the FAA, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, and not by state law. THE ARBITRATOR WILL FOLLOW APPLICABLE SUBSTANTIVE LAW TO THE EXTENT CONSISTENT WITH THE FAA, APPLICABLE STATUTES OF LIMITATION AND APPLICABLE PRIVILEGE RULES, AND SHALL BE AUTHORIZED TO AWARD ALL REMEDIES AVAILABLE IN AN INDIVIDUAL LAWSUIT UNDER APPLICABLE SUBSTANTIVE LAW, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, COMPENSATORY, STATUTORY, AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES, AS WELL AS, DECLARATORY, INJUNCTIVE, AND OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF—INCLUDING PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AND ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND COSTS. Information on AAA and how to start arbitration can be found at www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879.

13.3 Irreparable Harm
Notwithstanding Section 13.2, you acknowledge that unauthorized use of the Service or other breach of these Terms could result in immediate and irremediable damage to Schwazze, and that money damages alone would be inadequate to compensate Schwazze. Therefore, in the event of your breach or threatened breach of any provision of these Terms, Schwazze may, in addition to all other remedies, immediately obtain and enforce injunctive relief prohibiting the breach or compelling specific performance.

Only one (1) Loyalty Account per person/phone number. Any person attempting to obtain or use more than one Loyalty Account, phone number, identity, registration, or log-in, may be disqualified from participating in the Program at our sole discretion. We are not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information supplied by you. You represent and warrant that all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate, and that you will maintain the accuracy of such information at all times. You may not create more than one Loyalty Account. As part of the Program enrollment, you will be required to provide your name and mobile phone number.
To cancel your Loyalty Account, please email us at email@example.com.
14.2 How to Accrue Points
Customers will accrue one (1) loyalty point (each, a “Point”) for every $1 spent on the total qualifying purchase of both cannabis and non-cannabis products (not including discounts, returns, credits, delivery fees, and taxes) made at any participating, qualifying dispensaries owned by Schwazze (and such other stores as may be designated by us in our discretion, subject to such states’ applicable legal requirements) when the transaction is rung under Customer’s Loyalty Account, except as set forth in detail herein. You must tell the employee engaged at time of purchase that you wish to use your points or would like to sign up.
Offer values and rewards may not be combined with other offers and discounts, unless otherwise stated at the time of redemption.
You can track Points via Customer’s Wallet and native app that can be accessed via the secured weblink sent to your mobile phone upon enrollment.
From time to time, and at our sole discretion, the Program may offer other methods of accruing and redeeming Points and you may occasionally receive complimentary offer incentives. Incentive offers may be issued in recognition of various events, such as birthdays and anniversaries. You will be notified of offer eligibility via email and/or text. Any methods of accruing and redeeming Points are subject to these Terms and any additional terms listed on the Wallet or otherwise presented in connection with the description of the applicable Point accruing and redeeming method, if any (“Additional Terms”). Not all accrual activities will be available to all Customers. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, these Terms shall control. We reserve the right, at any time in our sole discretion and without notice to you, to modify, suspend or discontinue the Program. We may also impose rules for and limits on membership to the Program or restrict your access to the Program without notice or penalty. You agree that, to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Program.
14.3 How to Redeem Points
To redeem an offer or reward, Customers must let the budtender know that they are a Program member and that they wish to redeem their points or award at the time of the qualifying transaction.
Points are subtracted from the Customer’s Loyalty Account balance at the time of redemption.
In the event of a dispute concerning the identity of a Customer, the Customer will be declared the registered Loyalty Account holder of the phone number associated with the Loyalty Account, but only if that person meets all other eligibility criteria.
The Points are exclusive to the participating, qualifying Star Buds, Emerald Fields, and R. Greenleaf Organics retail stores.
There is no maximum on the amount of Points you can earn. However, your points will expire and be removed from your Loyalty Account after 180 consecutive days of having no qualifying purchase in your Loyalty Account. Any qualifying purchase posted to your Loyalty Account will extend your
Point(s) expiration date for 180 days from the posting date.
Points will be converted in the following increments: 100, 250, 500, 750, 1000. All redemptions are subject to applicable law. We are NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY POINTS THAT CANNOT BE REDEEMED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS DUE TO RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
Points are non-transferable and can be redeemed only by the Customer associated with the Loyalty Account. The Customer name on the Loyalty Account must match the valid picture ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.) that matches the name printed on the Loyalty Account presented at the time of purchase. If the ID does not correspond to the Loyalty Account name, the Points cannot be redeemed.
Points must be redeemed in a single transaction and will be surrendered to Gratify Rewards at the time of purchase. If the entire redemption amount is not used, any unused Points can be saved and used for your next purchase. The unused Points cannot be credited to any Loyalty Account, redeemed for cash or merchandise credit.
Points will not be refunded with returns if Points were redeemed during such transaction. Points have no cash value and cannot be credited to a Loyalty Account or redeemed for cash.
Points are not valid on and cannot be redeemed for: (1) Previous purchases; or (2) taxes or processing charges.
Lost or stolen Points will not be replaced. You agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Loyalty Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Loyalty Account. You agree to immediately notify Gratify Rewards of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use, of your Loyalty Account or any other breach of security. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements. We may suspend or terminate access to your Loyalty Account in our sole and absolute discretion. In the case that your Loyalty Account is terminated, these Terms shall remain, to the extent applicable, in full force and effect.
Points cannot be sold or otherwise bartered.
We reserve the right to alter and/or discontinue the Program at any time without notice.
If the total sale is greater than the Points being redeemed, you must provide payment prior to completing the transaction.
You shall have the responsibility of ensuring that your Points are properly credited at the time of your purchase. If you believe that Points were not properly accrued to your Loyalty Account, you must notify us or AlpinelQ and any claim for Points not credited accurately must be received within six (6) months of the date of claimed accrual of Points. We shall have no liability for any printing, production, typographical, mechanical or other errors or for any delay or failure to credit Points to your Loyalty Account. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org for any Point discrepancies.
14.4 Disqualifying Activities
We are entitled to take any action we consider appropriate in our sole discretion, including removing or suspending your Loyalty Account and canceling Points accrued if we detect any disqualifying activity concerning your Loyalty Account including but not limited to:
