iii. purchase and deliver flowers and other goods ordered by other members via the Website as gifts to the Suppliers’ Admitted Members;
iv. collect the Admitted Members’ paperwork, including the consent to the exchange of contract details with other Members.
12.2. The Suppliers are independent contractors and are not our agents or employees.

13.2 We recognize that there may be justifications with certain chargeback claims but equally there are ones which are entered wholly without merit, sometimes to the point of being malicious or fraudulent. Fraudulent claim is a criminal offence for which we reserve the right to complain and invoke prosecution by law enforcement agencies, in scope of which we will provide claimant’s personal information, credit card details, record of communication related to our Services or other Members.
13.3 As a compensation for the efforts in investigating a chargeback claim, you hereby agree that should your claim be found fraudulent or malicious, you will pay us an amount by way of liquidated damages comprising of :

24. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
24.1. PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS.
24.2. For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and the Company regarding any aspect of your relationship with us, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). Dispute is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
24.3. Class Action Waiver. The parties hereto expressly agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, representative action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and the Company specifically agree in writing to do so following initiation of the arbitration. Neither you, nor any other User or Member can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, consolidated or private attorney general proceeding.
24.4. You and the Company each hereby agreed to arbitration instead of the right to a trial before a judge or jury in a public court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, parties to it might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring a Dispute in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). You hereby give up those rights. Other rights that you would have had if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited in arbitration. The right to appellate review of an arbitrator’s decision is much more limited than in court, and in general an arbitrator’s decision may not be appealed for errors of fact or law.
24.5. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to the agreement including without limitation any dispute concerning the Services, validity, interpretation, enforceability or breach of the Agreement, shall be exclusively resolved by binding arbitration upon a submission of the dispute to arbitration. In the event of a dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to the agreement, you shall notify the Company in writing thereof and that notice shall include (a) your name, (b) your address, (c) a written description of the Dispute, and (d) a description of the specific relief you seek. Within forty-five (45) days of such notice the Company shall try to resolve the Dispute. Should the dispute not be resolved within forty-five (45) days after such notice, you may pursue your Dispute to arbitration. The demand for arbitration shall be made within a reasonable time after the claim, dispute or other matter in question has arisen, and in no event shall it be made after two years from when the aggrieved party knew or should have known of the controversy, claim, dispute or breach.
24.6. All disputes between you and the Company shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims in court and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court.
24.7. The arbitration shall be conducted by one arbitrator. If the Parties are not able to agree upon the selection of an arbitrator, within twenty days of commencement of an arbitration proceeding by service of a demand for arbitration, the arbitrator shall be selected by the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA”) shall select the arbitrator in accordance with the terms of this agreement. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a representative or class arbitration.
24.8. The arbitrator shall have three years of experience in online services provision and also shall have served as an arbitrator at least three times prior to their service as an arbitrator in this arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the then existing rules of the LCIA. The arbitration shall be conducted in LCIA, London, UK.
24.9. The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator shall make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award by the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the LCIA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
24.10. Except as may be required by law, you, nor your representative may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of the Company.
24.11. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, special and indirect damages. The arbitrators shall not be entitled to issue injunctive and other equitable relief.
24.12. The cost of the arbitration proceeding and any proceeding in court to confirm or to vacate any arbitration award, as applicable (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs), shall be borne by the unsuccessful party, as determined by the arbitrator, and shall be awarded as part of the arbitrator’s award. It is specifically understood and agreed that any party may enforce any award rendered pursuant to the arbitration provisions of this Section by bringing suit in any court of competent jurisdiction. This Section shall survive the termination or cancellation of this Agreement.
24.13. Enforceability. If only the “No Class Actions” paragraph above or the entirety of this Section 24 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 24 will be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 25 will govern any action arising out of or related to this Agreement.
25. GOVERNING LAW
The laws of the United Kingdom, excluding its conflicts of law principles, govern this Agreement and your use of the Service. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of courts in the United Kingdom, and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal jurisdiction and venue in such courts, and waive any defense of improper venue or inconvenient forum.

28. NO WAIVER
The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor will a waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in this Agreement is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of particular provisions. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and the Company as a result of this Agreement or use of the Service.
