United States and Puerto Rico Residents: To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any and all claims shall be referred to and finally resolved through binding and confidential arbitration conducted in Hudson County, New Jersey, except that you or The Children’s Place may take claims to small claims court if the dispute qualifies for hearing by such a court.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REMAINING PORTION OF THIS CLAUSE APPLIES REGARDLESS OF YOUR COUNTRY/TERRITORY OF RESIDENCE.
You and The Children’s Place each retain the right to seek provisional remedies in aid of arbitration or injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyright, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, APART FROM THE NARROW EXCEPTIONS ABOVE AND EXCEPT WHERE PROHBITED BY LAW, YOU AND THE CHILDREN’S PLACE EACH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ACTION, OR ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION AND THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF.
The number of arbitrators shall be one. The arbitration shall be conducted in English by the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective July 1, 2014 (the “JAMS Rules”) and as modified by this agreement to arbitrate. The JAMS Rules, including instructions for bringing arbitration, are available at its website at http://jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration. The Minimum Standards are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/consumer-minimum-standards or by calling 1-800-352-5267.
The arbitration shall be governed by these rules, and except where prohibited by law: (a) THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION AND THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (b) The Children’s Place will pay its arbitration costs as required by JAMS Rules, and in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, The Children’s Place will pay as much of your arbitration filing and hearing fees as the arbitrator deems is necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (c) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (d) each side pays his, her or its own attorneys' fees and costs unless the claim(s) at issue permit the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation costs, and in such instance, the fees and costs awarded shall be determined by the applicable law.
Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, provincial or local agencies, as the case may be, and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between The Children’s Place and you as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Site.
