TERMS OF USE

These Terms of Use were last updated November 13th, 2017.

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) are between you and Essilor of America, Inc. and its affiliated entities (“Essilor”, “we” or “us”). These Terms apply to Essilor’s websites, mobile applications and other digital platforms where they are posted, and set forth the terms and conditions upon which Essilor makes such websites, mobile applications and other digital platforms, and their contents, features, products and services (collectively and individually, the “Digital Services”) available to you. 

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE DIGITAL SERVICES. THESE TERMS CONTAIN PROVISIONS THAT LIMIT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT (SEE SECTION 21  “DISPUTES WITH ESSILOR”), WAIVERS OF CLASS ACTIONS AND JURY TRIALS, AND LIMITATIONS ON ESSILOR’S LIABILITY.

Portions of the Digital Services provide general information about vision, vision care and vision correction. As further described in Section 17, this information is not intended to be a source of or substitute for medical advice. IF YOU SUSPECT THAT YOU HAVE A VISION PROBLEM OR MEDICAL CONDITION REQUIRING ATTENTION, CONTACT A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.

1. Your Contract with Essilor.  These Terms are a contract between you and Essilor. BY USING OR BROWSING THE DIGITAL SERVICES OR BY CLICKING ON A BUTTON OR BOX MARKED “I AGREE” OR “I ACCEPT” OR BY TAKING OTHER ACTIONS THAT INDICATE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE TERMS.

2. Modifications to the Terms. We may amend these Terms at any time by posting a revised version on the Digital Services. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, the revised version will be effective at the time we post it. You are responsible for reviewing these Terms for updates.

If the revised version includes a Substantial Change (as defined below), we may provide thirty (30) days' prior notice of any Substantial Change by posting a notice on the home page of the applicable Digital Services. Where appropriate, such as where you have set up an account, you may be asked to check a box that you agree to the revised version of the Terms when you sign into your account. A "Substantial Change" means a change to the terms of these Terms that materially reduces your rights or increases your responsibilities.

Some Digital Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions, such as click-through agreements that require your acceptance, official rules for promotions, and policies (“Additional Terms”). Such Additional Terms, which are incorporated by reference into these Terms, are intended to supplement, not replace, these Terms. However, to the extent of any conflict between any applicable Additional Terms and these Terms, the Additional Terms will prevail.

YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.

a. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. You and Essilor agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and Essilor agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person's or party's claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party's individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users of the Digital Services. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO COMMENCE OR PARTICIPATE IN CLASS AND REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS.

b. Arbitration Procedures. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's website at http://www.adr.org.

The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, either you or Essilor may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on the other party subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator's award shall be confidential, final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

c. Costs of Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.

d. Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions in subsection (a) of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief"), if a court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If a court decides that any of the provisions in subsection (a) of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief") is invalid or unenforceable, then with respect to actions that would have been covered by subsection (a), the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms, including all other provisions of Section 21 (Disputes with Essilor), will continue to apply.

e. Future Changes to the Agreement to Arbitrate. Notwithstanding any provision in the Terms to the contrary, you and Essilor agree that if we make any change to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to any notice address or website link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Essilor prior to the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate the Agreement to Arbitrate as included in the Terms, any such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after the version of the Terms not containing the Agreement to Arbitrate is posted to the Digital Services, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Essilor prior to the effective date of termination.

21.4 Claims and Disputes Must Be Filed Within One Year. To the extent permitted by law, and without limiting the effect of any disclaimer contained herein, any cause of action or claim you may have with respect to the Digital Services, including any claim required to be submitted to arbitration, must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. This section applies to you and your heirs, successors and assigns.

22. Indemnity. In addition to your indemnity obligations under Section 8, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Essilor, its employees, officers, representatives, suppliers and service providers from any judgment, settlement, loss, liability, damages and costs,  including reasonable attorney's fees, arising from a claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of (i) your use of the Digital Services, including any information you provide to Essilor, your User Generated Content, or other information or content submitted or transmitted by you to through the Digital Services; (ii) any use of your  password; (iii) any information you download or access from or through the Digital Services; (iv) your interference with the operation of the Digital Services; and (v) any violation by you of these Terms, any rights of any other person or entity, or any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

23. Waiver. No delay or failure by Essilor to enforce any of these Terms shall be a waiver of any of our rights under these Terms.

24. Entire Agreement. These Terms are the entire understanding and agreement between Essilor and you with respect to the subject matter hereof.

25. General. Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision(s) of these Terms shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable, these Terms shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or unenforceable provision was not contained therein. The headings used in these Terms are for convenience only, are not a part of this agreement, and do not affect the interpretation of any of the provisions of these Terms.

STATEMENT ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Effective January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires Essilor to disclose its efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from its direct supply chain for tangible goods offered for sale.

Essilor sets a high bar for itself regarding sustainability, labor and employment, and it expects the same from its suppliers. Through its parent, Essilor International, Essilor adheres to numerous internally-established policies based on the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact at http://www.unglobalcompact.org/.
