We do not practice medicine or any other licensed profession, and do not interfere with the practice of medicine or any other licensed profession by Providers, each of whom is responsible for his, her or their services and compliance with the requirements applicable to his/her/their profession and license.

Lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other negative outcomes.

BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, THE PARTIES ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
Class Action Waiver.
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH PARTY 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 PARTIES 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).
This Arbitration Agreement does not preclude any party from seeking a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order, pending arbitration, in any court that has competent jurisdiction. Nor does this Arbitration Agreement bar a party from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies.
Notice of Disputes.
The parties will try in good faith to settle any Dispute within 30 days after the Dispute arises. If either you or TSC intends to seek arbitration of a Dispute, then that party must provide the other with notice in writing. The notice to TSC should be sent to the following address: The Skin Consult, Inc., Attn: 200 Riverwind Drive East. Suite 201. Pearl, MS 39208. TSC will send notice to you at the mailing address or email address associated with your Account, if applicable. Your notice to TSC must: (i) provide your name, mailing address, and email address; (ii) describe the Dispute; and (iii) set forth the relief you are requesting. If the parties are unable to reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within 60 days after the notice is received, the party that sent the notice may commence arbitration.
Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (AAA) rules and procedures (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. If there is any inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, the terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of this Agreement as a court would, including without limitation, the limitation of liability provisions in above. You may visit www.adr.org [hyperlink] for information on the AAA and www.adr.org/fileacase [hyperlink] for information on how to file a claim against TSC.
The arbitration shall be held in rankin county,MS or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or TSC may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on each party, but subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at any in-person hearing may be made by telephone by either or both parties unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the state of Mississippi, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving you to the extent required by applicable law.
Costs of Arbitration.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules. Each party will be responsible for all other fees it incurs in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation, all attorney fees.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified.
YOU AND TSC AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE PLATFORM AND SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Electronic Communications and Electronic Signatures.
When you communicate with TSC through the Platform or send us e-mail, you are communicating with us electronically. You hereby: (a) consent to receive communications from TSC in an electronic form; and (b) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. The foregoing does not affect any rights you may have which cannot be waived under applicable law.
You consent and agree that your use of a key pad, mouse or other device to select an item, button, icon, “click-through” or similar act/action while using any electronic services we offer; or in accessing or making any transactions regarding any document, agreement, approval, acknowledgement, consent, term, disclosure, or condition constitutes your signature, acceptance and agreement as if actually signed by you in writing whether online through the Platform, in emails, or in other digital, pdf or facsimile formal, or otherwise. To that end, you agree that any such forms of approval from you shall be effective and binding upon you, in the same manner as a handwritten signature, and enforced as originals. Further, you agree that no certification authority or other third party verification is necessary to validate your electronic signature; and that the lack of such certification or third party verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of your signature or resulting contract between you and TSC.
Governing Law; Venue.
These Terms and any Dispute between you and TSC arising out of or relating to the Platform and Services or these Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Mississippi, without regard to any provision of Mississippi law that would require or permit the application of the substantive law of another jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration, will be resolved on an individual basis in the state or federal courts located in the State of Mississippi, in rankin County, Mississippi so long as one of such courts shall have subject-matter jurisdiction over such suit, action or proceeding.
A waiver of a provision of these Terms must be in writing and signed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision. TSC’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is declared void or unenforceable by any judicial or administrative authority, the parties will replace such provision with a substitute that as closely as possible reflects the parties’ original intent (including economics and allocations of risk) and is enforceable, and the validity of the other provisions and of these Terms as a whole will not be affected.
TSC will not be liable for failure or delay in performing its obligations if such failure or delay is due to a force majeure event or other circumstances beyond TSC’s reasonable control, including acts of any governmental body, war, cyber war or attack, terrorism, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, pandemic, government closure, fire, flood, severe weather, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in the internet or transportation, unavailability of third-party services, failure of third-party software or services, or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Platform and Services, or any other products or services contemplated by these Terms or any of the Transaction Documents.
