A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed, as well as information sufficient for Core & Main to determine the legitimacy of the signature and the identity of the signatory;

BINDING ARBITRATION OF ALL DISPUTES; NO CLASS RELIEF, CHOICE OF LAW, AND VENUE
This section deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and we agree that we intend that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.
We believe that arbitration is a faster, more convenient and less expensive way to resolve any disputes or disagreements that you may have with us. Therefore, pursuant to these Terms, if you have any dispute or disagreement with us regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the Service, (ii) any subscriptions or other purchases, transactions or relationships related to your use of the Service, or (iii) any data or information you may provide to us or that we may gather in connection with such use, interaction, subscriptions, purchases, transactions or relationships (collectively, “Transactions or Relationships”), you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court, or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the Service, or engaging in any other Transactions or Relationships with us, you agree to binding arbitration as provided below.
We will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes, or disagreements that you may have with us. If those efforts fail, by using the Service, you agree that any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against us, and any claim that we may have against you, arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with these Terms or any Transactions or Relationships shall be resolved exclusively by final, confidential and binding arbitration (“Arbitration”) before a single arbitrator administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”) and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the “Applicable Rules”). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is no longer in existence, the Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (the “AAA”) instead, and conducted in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at that time (which shall be the “Applicable Rules” in such circumstances). If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness for Consumer Arbitrations in effect that would be applicable to the matter in dispute, we agree to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this section, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the application of subpart (e) or (i) below. Furthermore, this section shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies (that is, a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction) from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. You further agree that:
The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and us (the “Arbitrator”).
Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement.
The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms or these arbitration provisions, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable.
Location of Arbitration.
The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and us; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
The Arbitrator (i) shall apply internal laws of the State of Missouri consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) shall entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with Missouri or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) shall have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief.
No Class Relief.
The Arbitration can resolve only your or our individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets.
In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith.
Reasonable Attorney’s Fees.
In the event you recover an Award greater than our last written settlement offer, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award our reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees associated with the Arbitration, but we shall in all events bear our own attorneys’ fees.
Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause.
With the exception of subpart (e) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor we shall be entitled to arbitrate any dispute between us and you, and must instead bring any claims subject to subsection (k) below and the Dispute Resolution (Only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Arbitration is Prohibited by Applicable Law) section.
Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice.
We may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after we have given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from Transactions or Relationships occurring after the effective date of such notification. If any modification pursuant to this subpart (j) is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the arbitration provisions effective at the time of your agreement to these Terms shall govern any dispute or disagreement between you and us regarding Transactions or Relationships.
Small Claims Matters are Excluded. No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims.
Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim for damages you have against us in your local small claims court within the U.S., if your claim is within such court’s jurisdictional limit; provided that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.
Confidentiality of Arbitration.
You and we agree to maintain the confidential nature of the Arbitration and shall not disclose the fact of the Arbitration, any documents exchanged as part of any mediation, proceedings of the Arbitration, the Arbitrator’s decision and the existence or amount of any Award, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the Arbitration (in which case anyone becoming privy to such confidential information must undertake to preserve its confidentiality), or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a provisional remedy, a judicial challenge to an Award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by applicable law or court order.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ONLY IF A TRIBUNAL HAS RULED THAT ARBITRATION IS PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW)
This section applies only where applicable law, as determined by a court with appropriate jurisdiction, prohibits arbitration of disputes in accordance with the previous section regarding arbitration.
If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to the Service, the Content, these Terms or to any of our actual or alleged intellectual property rights (collectively, a “Non-Arbitration Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Non-Arbitration Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this section. Your notice to us must be sent to: [email protected].
For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, we and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Non-Arbitration Dispute, though nothing will require either you or us to resolve the Non-Arbitration Dispute on terms with respect to which you and us, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
The parties agree that the state or federal courts in Missouri shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Non-Arbitration Dispute.
To the maximum extent permitted by the mandatory laws in your country of residence, these Terms and any Non-Arbitration Dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes), will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the U.S. and the State of Missouri without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
The foregoing provisions of this section will not apply to any legal action taken by us to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Service, any Content, your User Contribution or our intellectual property rights (including such as we may claim may be in dispute), our operations, or our products or services.
The failure of Core & Main of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
These Terms, our Privacy Notice, and other Core & Main documents cited herein constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and Core & Main and govern your use of the Service, superseding any and all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, relating to your use of the Service. You will be subject to additional terms and conditions when you purchase products; participate in a sweepstakes, contest or other promotion; or use or download software.
By accessing the Service, you agree that the laws of the United States and the state of Missouri, without regard to conflicts of laws principles, will apply to these Terms and all matters relating to the Service.
Subject to the arbitration provisions above, and other than small claims actions as permitted therein, any action or proceeding arising from, relating to or in connection with these Terms will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in St. Louis County, Missouri, and you irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and agree that it is a convenient forum and that you will not seek to transfer such action or proceeding to any other forum or jurisdiction, under the doctrine of forum non conveniens or otherwise.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law that establishes a different statute of limitations, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, any claim or cause of action (including any arbitration) arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Service, or these Terms, or other Transactions or Relationships must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
We may provide you information regarding your account and the Service in electronic form only. You agree that such notices and other communications sent electronically satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that requirements must be in writing.
