DISPUTE RESOLUTION/ARBITRATION

It is NanKing’s goal that the Site meets your expectations. However, there may be instances when you have a problem or dispute that needs special attention.

This includes you first sending a written description of your problem or dispute using the following email address: [email protected] or by filling out a form on our “Contact Us” page.

You then agree to negotiate with NanKing in good faith about your problem or dispute. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after NanKing’s receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below.

You agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be resolved informally and that relate in any way to or arise out of the Site or these Terms shall be final and binding arbitration, except to the extent that you have in any manner infringed upon or violated or threatened to infringe upon or violate NanKing’s or any third party patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, privacy or publicity rights, in which case you acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy at law and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought by NanKing and/or the applicable third party(ies). You and we acknowledge that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to arbitrations under these Terms (despite any other choice of law provision).
