Catherines Text Messaging Programs: Terms & Conditions
Catherines offers its customers both recurring text messaging programs and occasional one-time or limited-duration text messaging programs. These Terms and Conditions govern all Catherines text message programs.

ARBITRATION NOTICE:

EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION/CLASS-ACTION WAIVER/DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISION BELOW, YOU AND CATHERINES AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND CATHERINES WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. THAT MEANS THAT AN ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY, WILL DECIDE ANY DISPUTE AND THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO BRING AN ACTION IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. YOU ALSO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO BRING OR RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE AS, OR PARTICIPATE IN, A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ACTION OR ARBITRATION.

You may sign up for a Catherines text message program by texting to 95400, filling out a form on our website or in one of our stores or otherwise providing your consent. You may need to confirm your consent, such as by replying Y to an initial text message sent to you. When you agree to participate in Catherines text messaging programs, you typically agree to receive recurring messages with information, alerts, and special offers from Catherines. However, there may be programs where Catherines specifies that it will send a certain number or up to a certain number of text messages (for example, if you participate in a promotion or request a coupon code, you may receive a certain number of text messages only related to that promotion or you may only receive one text with the coupon code).

Messages may be in SMS or MMS format and may contain marketing content. Text messages may be sent using an automatic telephone dialing system. Consent to receive such messages is not required as a condition of purchasing of any goods or services. Message and data rates may apply.

You may stop receiving text messages from us at any time by replying STOP or texting STOP to 95400. You will receive one final text message confirming that you have opted out. For additional help, email customercare@vibes.com or call (866) 886-4720.

You must be the mobile account holder and at least 18 years of age or have a parent or guardian's permission in order to participate. If your mobile operator is not participating, you will not receive a reply to your messages. Some operators may not support some services. All carriers, including T-Mobile are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Pre-paid users may not be able to participate - check with your mobile service provider.

If you change your mobile phone number, you agree to promptly notify Catherines of the change. In the event that you change or deactivate your mobile number it is your responsibility to notify Catherines by email at customercare@vibes.com to have your number removed.

Additionally, Catherines reserves the right to alter message frequency at any time, i.e. we may change the frequency of texts that you receive under a program. We will notify you via text if we change the frequency and provide you with the opportunity to opt out.

Your participation in a Catherines text message program is subject to our website Terms of Use and Internet Privacy Policy. To the extent of any inconsistency, the terms and conditions in this document take precedence.

ARBITRATION/CLASS-ACTION WAIVER/DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.

BOTH YOU AND CATHERINES WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. BOTH YOU AND CATHERINES WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION RELATED ANY DISPUTE THAT IS BROUGHT BY ANYONE ELSE. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THE JAMS (DEFINED BELOW) RULES TO THE CONTRARY, THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY OR ANY JURISDICTION TO HEAR THE ARBITRATION AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN, OR OTHERWISE COMBINE THE CLAIMS OF DIFFERENT PERSONS INTO ONE PROCEEDING.

You agree that these terms and your participation in Catherines text messaging programs are governed by the laws of Ohio, USA without regard to its conflict of law principles. The parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, Catherines shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Franklin County, Ohio and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator's decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to these terms will be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. ("JAMS") or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a "Demand for Arbitration," then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration administration service who will hear the case. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Columbus, OH; Chicago, IL; New York City, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Atlanta, GA; or Dallas, TX (whichever is closest to your residence) or in your hometown if required by applicable JAMS rules. The federal or state law that applies to these terms will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions or class arbitrations; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Franklin County, Ohio. Catherines agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs incurred by you to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In no event will you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief or to enjoin or restrain the operation or exploitation of these terms or the Catherines text messaging programs.
