  • Initial Dispute Resolution: We are available by email at customercare@mybambu.com to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner.  You and we agree to use best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
  • Agreement to Binding Arbitration; Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding/Selection of Administrator: If we do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to Section 17(a) above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties relationship with each other and/or your use of the Service shall be finally settled by binding arbitration pursuant to this Arbitration Provision and administered by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Code”), excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.  Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense.  The parties shall select a single neutral arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of the Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of the Agreement is void or voidable.  The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity.  The arbitrator’s award shall be final and in writing and provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions, shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.  The interpretation and enforcement of the Agreement shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.  The JAMS rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at https://www.jamsadr.com/adr-rules-procedures or by calling 1-800-352-5267.
  • Significance of Arbitration: The parties understand that, ABSENT THIS MANDATORY PROVISION, THEY WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. unless you elect to opt out in accordance with Section 17(I) below, NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE THAT CLAIM IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON THAT CLAIM, OR TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR IN THE Code. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THE RIGHT TO DISCOVERY MAY BE MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION THAN IN COURT.  FURTHER, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS PERTAINING TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION; THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT CONDUCT A CLASS ARBITRATION OR A JOINT ARBITRATION.  EXCEPT AS SET FORTH BELOW, THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING.  NOTE THAT OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
  • Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver; Restrictions on Arbitration: YOU AND BAMBU EACH FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED IN OUR RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES ONLY AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, AND YOU AND BAMBU EACH EXPRESSLY WAIVE OUR RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS.  If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above in Section 17(b) shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
  • Location of Arbitration/Payment of Fees: Any arbitration hearing that you attend shall take place in the federal judicial district of your residence.  If you initiate arbitration, to the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds Two Hundred and Fifty U.S. Dollars ($250.00), we will pay the additional cost.  If we are required to pay the additional cost of the filing fees, you should submit a request for payment of fees to JAMS along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to JAMS.  We will also be responsible for paying all other arbitration costs arising in connection with the arbitration, other than costs incurred by you for legal counsel, travel and other out-of-pocket costs and expenses not constituting fees or amounts payable to JAMS.  You will not be required to pay fees and costs incurred by us if you do not prevail in arbitration. We will also pay JAMS to reimburse you for any portion of the $250 filing fee that is more than what you would otherwise have to pay to file suit in a court of law. You understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation.
  • Survival: This Arbitration Provision shall survive termination of your use of the Services, and any bankruptcy by you or us.
  • Exception - Small Claims Court Claims: Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.

·       The categories of sources for the Personal Information we have collected about you.

·       Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that Personal Information.

·       The categories of third parties with whom we share that Personal Information.

·       The specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).

If we sold or disclosed your Personal Information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:

·       the categories of Personal Information about you that we have sold within the meaning of the CCPA and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was sold; and

·       the categories of Personal Information about you that we disclosed for a business purpose.

 

Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions “Deletion Request”).  Once we receive and confirm your verifiable Deletion Request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

 

 

DO NOT SELL RIGHTS
You have the right to request that we refrain from selling your Personal Information (“Do Not Sell Request”).  Once we receive and confirm your verifiable Do Not Sell Request, we will delete (and direct third parties to delete) your Personal Information from our marketing and advertising tracking technology records, unless an exception applies. We will also refrain from “selling” such Personal Information that we may reasonably associate with you for one calendar year, or until you choose to opt-in.

 

As examples, our processing of or response to an Access Request or Deletion Request may not include some or all of the following Personal Information:

  • Consumer Accounts.  Personal Data connected with consumer accounts used for personal, family or household purposes.  Our sponsor bank has privacy notices describing use and sharing of this data.  Examples of this exemption are the collection of Personal Information to open a bank account or complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, otherwise provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you; the detection of security incidents, protection against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecution of those responsible for such activities; debugging products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Employment.  Personal Information about an individual who is a current or former employee or job applicant, and we use that Personal Information within the context of that individual’s role as a current or former employee or job applicant.
  • Business-to-Business Relationships.  Certain Personal Information we collect in the course of providing a product or service to another business, or in the course of receiving a product or service from another business.

 

We also may deny your Deletion Request if retaining the Personal Information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.)
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

The types of Personal Information described above are examples. We have not listed all types of Personal Information that may not be included when we respond to or process Access Requests or Deletion Requests.

In addition to the above examples, we may not include Personal Information when we respond to or process Access Requests or Deletion Requests when the CCPA recognizes another exception.  For example, we will not provide the Personal Information about another individual where doing so would adversely affect the data privacy rights of that individual.

 

 

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a request to us by either:
·       by writing us at P.O. Box 2141, Cranberry Township, PA 16066;

·       by calling the Customer Service telephone number which is (833) 882-2628

·       and by emailing us at customercare@mybambu.com

 

Only you or a person who you authorize to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information.  Under California law, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf.  You may make such a designation by providing the agent with written permission to act on your behalf.  Your agent may be subject to the same verification procedures that we use to verify consumers who do not currently have a relationship with us.  As permitted by law, we may require you to verify your own identity in response to a request even if you choose to use an agent and may require that you sign and submit a notarized form.

 

The verifiable consumer request must:

·       Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative.

·       Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

 

Verifying Your Request
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.  Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.  We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify your identity or authority to make the request.  We may otherwise limit our response to your request as permitted under applicable law.

 

Whenever feasible, we will match the identifying information provided by you to the Personal Information we maintain or use a third-party identity verification service that complies with the CCPA.  However, if we cannot verify your identity from the Personal Information that we maintain, we may request additional information from you, which shall only be used for the purposes of verifying your identity.

 

Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt.  If we reasonably require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account.  If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. Under the CCPA, we are only obligated to respond to requests twice per twelve month period.

 

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.  If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

 

Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

·       Deny you goods or services.

·       Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

·       Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

·       Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

 

However, we may offer, and you may consent to receive certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates or quality levels.  Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your Personal Information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects.  You may revoke your consent to participate or receive such financial incentive at any time.
