Terms of Sale
The terms in this Section 4 govern your purchase of Products from ROC.

By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you permit us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your order (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order.
4.2 Pricing and Availability
Product prices do not include applicable taxes and other charges, unless we clearly state in writing that a price includes applicable taxes. All Products offered for sale are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, reject all or any part of an order and discontinue our Products without prior notice, even if you have already placed your order. Prices for Products are subject to change at any time, but changes will not affect any order for Products you have already placed.
In the event that a Product you are interested in purchasing is not listed or is listed as "out of stock" on the Product’s information page, it is not currently available for ordering. Please check back at a later time as our Product inventory is subject to change.
You are responsible for any sales, duty or other governmental taxes or fees due with respect to your purchase of Products. We will collect applicable sales tax if we determine that we have a duty to collect sales tax. We will present any taxes that we are required to collect at checkout.
4.4 Shipping; Risk of Loss
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time. Any delivery dates or times shown as part of the checkout process are estimates only and are not guaranteed. Unless we state otherwise, risk of loss or damage passes to you upon delivery of the Products to your specified delivery location.
4.5 Returns, Cancelling or Changing an Order
You may return any unused ROC Products for a full refund within thirty (30) days of delivery. You may cancel or make changes to your order as long as your request is made prior to shipment. To cancel or change an order, please visit our Contact page for ways to reach us and hours of service.
4.6 Limited Product Warranty
ROC warrants that new Products will be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use in accordance with ROC’s user manuals for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of purchase in its original packaging by you. This limited warranty extends to the original buyer only. Within the period of warranty, ROC will, in its sole discretion and to the extent permitted by law, either repair your Product using new or refurbished parts, replace your Product with a new or refurbished Product, or accept the return of the Product in exchange for a refund of the purchase price you paid for the Product. All warranty repairs or service must be performed by ROC. This warranty does not apply to damage resulting from misuse, abuse, accidents, or other than normal use. To arrange for warranty repair or service, please visit our Contact page for ways to reach us and hours of service.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible and to eliminate errors; however, we do not warrant that all Product descriptions, photographs, pricing and other information are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. In the event of an error, whether on the Services, in an order confirmation, in processing an order or delivering a Product, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. Your sole remedy in the event of an error is to cancel your order and obtain a refund.

Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to waive your right to a jury trial and arbitrate certain disputes and claims with ROC and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this agreement.
Some jurisdictions may limit or prohibit arbitration agreements or class action waivers. If you are a resident of such a jurisdiction, the below arbitration agreement and class action waivers are not applicable to you. Instead, the provisions requiring that disputes be heard in the small claims court will apply to any claims that you may have against us. If your dispute exceeds the monetary or other limits on jurisdiction of your local small claims court, any dispute will be heard in the federal or state courts in King County, Washington.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or ROC seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or ROC seek injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and ROC waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute that you have against ROC, you agree to first contact ROC and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to ROC by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by certified mail addressed to: Global Lifestyle Inc. at 316 Main St., Ste A-3, Edmonds, WA 98020. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and ROC cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may, as appropriate in accordance with this section, submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, where applicable, in court. All submitted disputes will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in King County, Washington in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and ROC agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and ROC and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought, whether inside or outside arbitration, as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
You and ROC agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 17 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
You and ROC agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and ROC will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by ROC, ROC will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and ROC agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Washington and the United States sitting in King County, Washington have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and ROC will not have the right to assert the claim.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 17 by emailing us at email@example.com. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name, address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with Section 18.
If any portion of this arbitration section is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the arbitration section or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the arbitration section; and (3) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this arbitration section is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this section will be enforceable.
Governing Law and Venue
Any dispute arising from these Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Washington, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Washington or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Washington and the United States, respectively, sitting in King County, Washington.
We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use our Services. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and ROC relating to your access to and use of our Services or Products. The failure of ROC to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
