4.               General Provisions.
4.1.          Arbitration and Class Action WaiverEXCEPT FOR ANY EQUITABLE RELIEF SOUGHT BY THREADSTRONG TO PROTECT ITS RIGHTS, YOU AND THREADSTRONG ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.  ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THROUGH THE SITE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Section 4.1. (The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the Agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You may elect to pursue your claim in small-claims court rather than arbitration if you provide us with written notice of your intention do so within 60 days of your purchase. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.
You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR THREADSTRONG WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
4.2.          Severability.  If any provision of these Terms or the Privacy Policy is found invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, in whole or in part, by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality, or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which will continue to be in full force and effect.
4.3.          Assignment.  Threadstrong may assign any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time without your consent.  You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms without the prior written consent of Threadstrong; any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 4.3 is void.
4.4.          Entire Agreement.  These Terms, together with any supplemental policies, the Privacy Policy, and any other documents expressly incorporated by reference herein, contain the entire agreement between Threadstrong and you with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties of the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof, whether electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent.
4.5.          No Waiver.  The failure of Threadstrong to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms or the Privacy Policy or failure to exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of RETAILER’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.  The express waiver by Threadstrong of any provision, condition or requirement of these Terms or the Privacy Policy shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement. 
4.6.          Notices.  We may notify you via postings on www.threadstrong.us/pages/notices and via email or any other communications means through contact information you provide to us.  All notices given by you or required from you under these Terms or the Privacy Policy shall be in writing and addressed to the address in this Section 4.6.  Any notices that you provide without compliance with this Section 4.6 shall have no legal effect.

4.7.          Force Majeure.  Threadstrong shall not be liable for any delay or failure to deliver or provide warranty related services for Products resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Threadstrong, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond Threadstrong’s control, such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, pandemics (including COVID-19), accidents, strikes, shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
4.8.          Choice of Law. The Terms and Privacy Policy shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois notwithstanding its conflicts of law provisions.  For any legal claims, actions or suits that are not subject to arbitration, you and Threadstrong agree that all such claims, actions or suits shall be instituted in the federal courts of the United States of America or the courts of the State of Illinois in each case located in the City of Chicago, Illinois and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such claim, action or suit.
