Text Messaging Terms and Conditions


Before enrolling in any of C&S Tactical’s text message program(s), please read this Terms and Conditions Agreement carefully, including the mandatory Binding Arbitration Agreement, which requires that disputes are resolved by final and binding arbitration on an individual and not a class‐wide or consolidated basis.

Binding Arbitration Agreement


As part of this Terms and Conditions Agreement, you and C&S Tactical each agree as follows (the “Arbitration Agreement”).


NOTICE: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION OF THIS TERMS AND CONDITIONS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. IT LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHTS TO TRY CLAIMS IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM OR ACTION.


MANDATORY INFORMATION DISPUTE RESOLUTION: If you or C&S Tactical have a Claim (defined below), you and C&S Tactical agree to make a good faith effort to resolve it informally prior to initiating a formal arbitration proceeding. The party that intends to initiate an arbitration proceeding must first send a notice to the other party that describes the Claim. The notice must include the initiating party’s name and contact information (address, telephone number, and email address) and a detailed description of (1) the nature and basis of the Claim and (2) the nature and basis of the relief sought, with a detailed calculation. Your notice shall be sent by mail to C&S Tactical’s registered business agent, Jonathan C. Weetman Attorney at Law, LLC, 909 Baltimore Blvd, Suite 101, Westminster, MD 21157; with a copy to C&S Tactical, 1004 Littlestown Pike, Suite C-2, Westminster, MD 21157, Attention: Legal Department; or by email to: Legal@shootcs.com. You must personally sign the notice. C&S Tactical’s notice to you shall be sent to the most recent contact information we have on file for you. If requested by the party that receives the notice, the other party must personally participate in a telephone settlement conference (if a party is represented by counsel, counsel may also participate) to discuss the Claim. If the Claim is not resolved within sixty (60) days after receipt of the notice (which period can be extended by agreement of you and us), you or C&S Tactical may commence an arbitration proceeding consistent with the process set forth below. Compliance with and completing this informal dispute resolution process is a condition precedent to filing a demand for arbitration. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines for a formal arbitration proceeding shall be tolled while the parties engage in this informal dispute resolution process. If the sufficiency of a notice or compliance with this informal dispute resolution process is at issue, it may be decided by a court at either party’s election, and any arbitration proceeding shall be stayed pending resolution of the issue. A court of competent jurisdiction shall have the authority to enforce this condition precedent to arbitration, which includes the power to enjoin the filing or prosecution of a demand for arbitration.


AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: If we are unable to resolve a Claim through the mandatory informal dispute resolution process, you and C&S Tactical agree that, except as set forth below, all Claims between you and us will be resolved entirely through the binding individual arbitration process set forth in this Section. For purposes of this Section, “C&S Tactical,” “we,” “our,” and “us” include C&S Tactical and its employees, officers, directors, parents, agents, controlling persons, subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, acquired entities, successors, and assigns.

 

CLAIMS: “Claims” subject to this Section include all of the following: (1) claims relating to or arising out of this Terms and Conditions Agreement or any prior or later versions of this Terms and Conditions Agreement, as well as any changes to this Terms and Conditions Agreement; (2) claims relating to or arising out of any aspect of any relationship between you and us; (3) claims relating to or arising out of your access of, use of, or any transactions through, by, or using the Sites, including receipt of any advertising, marketing, or other communications from C&S Tactical; and (4) claims relating to the interpretation, scope, applicability, or enforceability of this Terms and Conditions Agreement or this Section except as set forth in Section 12(b), Section 12(k), and Section 12(l). Except as provided below, (X) claims are subject to arbitration whether they are based on contract, tort, federal or state statute, constitution, regulation, or any other legal theory, or whether they seek legal or equitable remedies; (Y) all claims are subject to arbitration whether they arose in the past, may currently exist, or may arise in the future; and (Z) claims include claims or disputes that arose before the parties entered into this Terms and Conditions Agreement or after termination of this Terms and Conditions Agreement.


CLAIMS NOT COVERED BY ARBITRATION: Claims filed by you or by us in a small claims court are not subject to arbitration, so long as the dispute remains in such court and advances only an individual claim for relief. Claims filed by you or us in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights are also not subject to arbitration. Section 12(k) and Section 12(k) set forth additional claims not subject to arbitration.


COMMENCING AN ARBITRATION: Except as set forth in Section 12(l), unless the parties agree to select a different arbitration administrator, the arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) as follows: under AAA’s Commercial Rules for commercial disputes and under AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules for consumers with non-commercial disputes, except as modified by this Section. AAA’s rules may be obtained from www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879 (toll-free). If AAA is for any reason unable to serve and the parties are unable to agree on an alternative arbitration administrator, then a court of competent jurisdiction shall appoint an arbitration administrator. To commence an arbitration proceeding, you or C&S Tactical must send a personally signed demand for arbitration that describes (1) the nature and basis of the Claim(s), and (2) the nature and basis of the relief sought, including a detailed calculation, along with a certification that you or we are party to this Section and completed the informal dispute resolution process referenced above. Your notice shall be sent by mail to C&S Tactical’s registered business agent, Jonathan C. Weetman Attorney at Law, LLC, 909 Baltimore Blvd, Suite 101, Westminster, MD 21157; with a copy to C&S Tactical, 1004 Littlestown Pike, Suite C-2, Westminster, MD 21157, Attention: Legal Department; or by email to: Legal@shootcs .com. C&S Tactical’s notice shall be sent to the most recent contact information we have on file for you. You or C&S Tactical must also contact AAA or the chosen arbitration administrator and follow its appropriate procedures to commence the arbitration.


ARBITRATION PROCEDURE: Unless you and we agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration shall be decided by a single, neutral arbitrator, who shall be a retired judge or a lawyer with at least ten years of experience, selected in accordance with the chosen arbitration administrator’s rules.


The arbitrator will decide the Claim or Claims in accordance with this Terms and Conditions Agreement and applicable substantive law, including the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (“FAA”), and applicable statutes of limitation. The arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. Except as provided in Section 12(k) below, the arbitrator may award damages or other relief (including injunctive relief) available to the individual claimant under applicable law.
The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect proprietary or confidential information. Any arbitration hearing shall take place in the county in which you reside unless the parties agree in writing to a different location or the arbitrator so orders. If all Claims are for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing in accordance with the arbitration administrator’s rules. You and a C&S Tactical representative shall personally appear (with counsel if you and we are represented) at an initial telephone conference with a case manager before an arbitrator is appointed and at a hearing should one be scheduled by the arbitrator.


At your or our request, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding except that any party may appeal any award relating to a Claim for more than $100,000 or for injunctive relief to a three-arbitrator panel appointed by the arbitration administrator, which will reconsider de novo any aspect of the appealed award. The panel’s decision will be final and binding. In either event, you or we may seek to have the award vacated or confirmed and entered as a judgment in any court having jurisdiction.


ARBITRATION COSTS: Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the applicable AAA rules as set forth above or, if a different arbitration administrator is selected, its rules. If you are a consumer with a non-commercial dispute, we will pay any filing, administration, or arbitrator fees the arbitration administrator requires you to pay if, in writing signed by you: (1) you claim to be unable to afford it, and (2) you demonstrate that you sought, but were unable to obtain, a waiver of that fee from the arbitration administrator. To the extent allowed by applicable law and our agreements, the arbitrator may award arbitration costs and attorney’s fees to the prevailing party.


JURY WAIVER AND LIMITATION OF RIGHTS: You and we agree that, by agreeing to arbitrate any Claims, the parties are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or a trial before a judge in court (except for matters that may be taken to a court pursuant to this Section). You and we acknowledge that arbitration will limit our legal rights, including the right to participate in a class action, the right to a jury trial, the right to conduct full discovery, and the right to appeal.


CLASS ACTION AND REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WAIVER: You and we agree that each may bring Claims against the other only in an individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless mutually agreed to by you and us, the claims of two or more persons may not be joined, consolidated, or otherwise brought together in the same arbitration. The arbitrator shall have no authority to conduct any class, private attorney general, or other representative proceeding. This Section 12(j) does not apply to requests for public injunctive relief, which are addressed in Section 12(k).
Do not use the Sites or enroll in any of C&S Tactical’s text message programs if you do not agree to the foregoing binding arbitration provisions.


No Waiver


No delay or failure by C&S Tactical to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any of our rights under this Terms and Conditions Agreement. Neither the receipt of any funds by C&S Tactical nor the reliance of any person on our actions shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any part of this Terms and Conditions Agreement. Only a specific, written waiver signed by an authorized representative of C&S Tactical shall have any legal effect.


Severability


If any clause or provision set forth in this Terms and Conditions Agreement is determined to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future law, the clause or provision shall be deemed to be deleted without affecting the enforceability of all remaining clauses or provisions.


Interpretation


Note that the headings contained in this Terms and Conditions Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and shall not in any way define or affect the meaning, construction, or scope of any of the provisions contained in this Terms and Conditions Agreement. The word “including”, or any variation thereof means “including, without limitation” and shall not be construed to limit any general statement that it follows to the specific or similar items or matters immediately following it. Unless the context demands otherwise, the word “or” shall have the inclusive meaning identified with the phrase “and/or”. Any reference made in this Terms and Conditions Agreement to a statute or statutory provision shall include any amendments or successors thereto as in effect at the time the particular provision of this Terms and Conditions Agreement is to be given effect, along with any then-applicable rules or regulations promulgated thereunder.

Text Messaging Terms and Conditions

 

Before enrolling in any of C&S Tactical’s text message program(s), please read this Terms and Conditions Agreement carefully, including the mandatory Binding Arbitration Agreement, which requires that disputes are resolved by final and binding arbitration on an individual and not a class‐wide or consolidated basis.

However, you may also choose to sign up for other text message programs, for example, regarding specific promotions or events, or to confirm your identity before accessing your account. Messages may be in SMS, MMS, or RCS format and may contain marketing content. Text messages may be sent using an automatic telephone dialing system, or artificial or pre-recorded voice. Your consent to receive such messages is not required as a condition of purchasing any goods or services. Message and data rates may apply.

Binding Arbitration Agreement

 

As part of this Terms and Conditions Agreement, you and C&S Tactical each agree as follows (the “Arbitration Agreement”).

 

NOTICE: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION OF THIS TERMS AND CONDITIONS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. IT LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHTS TO TRY CLAIMS IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM OR ACTION.

 

 

MANDATORY INFORMATION DISPUTE RESOLUTION: If you or C&S Tactical have a Claim (defined below), you and C&S Tactical agree to make a good faith effort to resolve it informally prior to initiating a formal arbitration proceeding. The party that intends to initiate an arbitration proceeding must first send a notice to the other party that describes the Claim. The notice must include the initiating party’s name and contact information (address, telephone number, and email address) and a detailed description of (1) the nature and basis of the Claim and (2) the nature and basis of the relief sought, with a detailed calculation. Your notice shall be sent by mail to C&S Tactical’s registered business agent, Jonathan C. Weetman Attorney at Law, LLC, 909 Baltimore Blvd, Suite 101, Westminster, MD 21157; with a copy to C&S Tactical, 1004 Littlestown Pike, Suite C-2, Westminster, MD 21157, Attention: Legal Department; or by email to: Legal@shootcs.com. You must personally sign the notice. C&S Tactical’s notice to you shall be sent to the most recent contact information we have on file for you. If requested by the party that receives the notice, the other party must personally participate in a telephone settlement conference (if a party is represented by counsel, counsel may also participate) to discuss the Claim. If the Claim is not resolved within sixty (60) days after receipt of the notice (which period can be extended by agreement of you and us), you or C&S Tactical may commence an arbitration proceeding consistent with the process set forth below. Compliance with and completing this informal dispute resolution process is a condition precedent to filing a demand for arbitration. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines for a formal arbitration proceeding shall be tolled while the parties engage in this informal dispute resolution process. If the sufficiency of a notice or compliance with this informal dispute resolution process is at issue, it may be decided by a court at either party’s election, and any arbitration proceeding shall be stayed pending resolution of the issue. A court of competent jurisdiction shall have the authority to enforce this condition precedent to arbitration, which includes the power to enjoin the filing or prosecution of a demand for arbitration.

 

 

AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: If we are unable to resolve a Claim through the mandatory informal dispute resolution process, you and C&S Tactical agree that, except as set forth below, all Claims between you and us will be resolved entirely through the binding individual arbitration process set forth in this Section. For purposes of this Section, “C&S Tactical,” “we,” “our,” and “us” include C&S Tactical and its employees, officers, directors, parents, agents, controlling persons, subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, acquired entities, successors, and assigns.

 

 

CLAIMS: “Claims” subject to this Section include all of the following: (1) claims relating to or arising out of this Terms and Conditions Agreement or any prior or later versions of this Terms and Conditions Agreement, as well as any changes to this Terms and Conditions Agreement; (2) claims relating to or arising out of any aspect of any relationship between you and us; (3) claims relating to or arising out of your access of, use of, or any transactions through, by, or using the Sites, including receipt of any advertising, marketing, or other communications from C&S Tactical; and (4) claims relating to the interpretation, scope, applicability, or enforceability of this Terms and Conditions Agreement or this Section except as set forth in Section 12(b), Section 12(k), and Section 12(l). Except as provided below, (X) claims are subject to arbitration whether they are based on contract, tort, federal or state statute, constitution, regulation, or any other legal theory, or whether they seek legal or equitable remedies; (Y) all claims are subject to arbitration whether they arose in the past, may currently exist, or may arise in the future; and (Z) claims include claims or disputes that arose before the parties entered into this Terms and Conditions Agreement or after termination of this Terms and Conditions Agreement.

 

 

CLAIMS NOT COVERED BY ARBITRATION: Claims filed by you or by us in a small claims court are not subject to arbitration, so long as the dispute remains in such court and advances only an individual claim for relief. Claims filed by you or us in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights are also not subject to arbitration. Section 12(k) and Section 12(k) set forth additional claims not subject to arbitration.

 

 

COMMENCING AN ARBITRATION: Except as set forth in Section 12(l), unless the parties agree to select a different arbitration administrator, the arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) as follows: under AAA’s Commercial Rules for commercial disputes and under AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules for consumers with non-commercial disputes, except as modified by this Section. AAA’s rules may be obtained from www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879 (toll-free). If AAA is for any reason unable to serve and the parties are unable to agree on an alternative arbitration administrator, then a court of competent jurisdiction shall appoint an arbitration administrator. To commence an arbitration proceeding, you or C&S Tactical must send a personally signed demand for arbitration that describes (1) the nature and basis of the Claim(s), and (2) the nature and basis of the relief sought, including a detailed calculation, along with a certification that you or we are party to this Section and completed the informal dispute resolution process referenced above. Your notice shall be sent by mail to C&S Tactical’s registered business agent, Jonathan C. Weetman Attorney at Law, LLC, 909 Baltimore Blvd, Suite 101, Westminster, MD 21157; with a copy to C&S Tactical, 1004 Littlestown Pike, Suite C-2, Westminster, MD 21157, Attention: Legal Department; or by email to: Legal@shootcs .com. C&S Tactical’s notice shall be sent to the most recent contact information we have on file for you. You or C&S Tactical must also contact AAA or the chosen arbitration administrator and follow its appropriate procedures to commence the arbitration.

 

ARBITRATION PROCEDURE: Unless you and we agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration shall be decided by a single, neutral arbitrator, who shall be a retired judge or a lawyer with at least ten years of experience, selected in accordance with the chosen arbitration administrator’s rules.

 

The arbitrator will decide the Claim or Claims in accordance with this Terms and Conditions Agreement and applicable substantive law, including the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (“FAA”), and applicable statutes of limitation. The arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. Except as provided in Section 12(k) below, the arbitrator may award damages or other relief (including injunctive relief) available to the individual claimant under applicable law.

 

The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect proprietary or confidential information. Any arbitration hearing shall take place in the county in which you reside unless the parties agree in writing to a different location or the arbitrator so orders. If all Claims are for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing in accordance with the arbitration administrator’s rules. You and a C&S Tactical representative shall personally appear (with counsel if you and we are represented) at an initial telephone conference with a case manager before an arbitrator is appointed and at a hearing should one be scheduled by the arbitrator.

 

At your or our request, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding except that any party may appeal any award relating to a Claim for more than $100,000 or for injunctive relief to a three-arbitrator panel appointed by the arbitration administrator, which will reconsider de novo any aspect of the appealed award. The panel’s decision will be final and binding. In either event, you or we may seek to have the award vacated or confirmed and entered as a judgment in any court having jurisdiction.

 

ARBITRATION COSTS: Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the applicable AAA rules as set forth above or, if a different arbitration administrator is selected, its rules. If you are a consumer with a non-commercial dispute, we will pay any filing, administration, or arbitrator fees the arbitration administrator requires you to pay if, in writing signed by you: (1) you claim to be unable to afford it, and (2) you demonstrate that you sought, but were unable to obtain, a waiver of that fee from the arbitration administrator. To the extent allowed by applicable law and our agreements, the arbitrator may award arbitration costs and attorney’s fees to the prevailing party.

 

JURY WAIVER AND LIMITATION OF RIGHTS: You and we agree that, by agreeing to arbitrate any Claims, the parties are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or a trial before a judge in court (except for matters that may be taken to a court pursuant to this Section). You and we acknowledge that arbitration will limit our legal rights, including the right to participate in a class action, the right to a jury trial, the right to conduct full discovery, and the right to appeal.

 

CLASS ACTION AND REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WAIVER: You and we agree that each may bring Claims against the other only in an individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless mutually agreed to by you and us, the claims of two or more persons may not be joined, consolidated, or otherwise brought together in the same arbitration. The arbitrator shall have no authority to conduct any class, private attorney general, or other representative proceeding. This Section 12(j) does not apply to requests for public injunctive relief, which are addressed in Section 12(k).

 

Do not use the Sites or enroll in any of C&S Tactical’s text message programs if you do not agree to the foregoing binding arbitration provisions.

 

No Waiver

 

No delay or failure by C&S Tactical to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any of our rights under this Terms and Conditions Agreement. Neither the receipt of any funds by C&S Tactical nor the reliance of any person on our actions shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any part of this Terms and Conditions Agreement. Only a specific, written waiver signed by an authorized representative of C&S Tactical shall have any legal effect.

 

Severability

 

If any clause or provision set forth in this Terms and Conditions Agreement is determined to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future law, the clause or provision shall be deemed to be deleted without affecting the enforceability of all remaining clauses or provisions.

 

Interpretation

 

Note that the headings contained in this Terms and Conditions Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and shall not in any way define or affect the meaning, construction, or scope of any of the provisions contained in this Terms and Conditions Agreement. The word “including”, or any variation thereof means “including, without limitation” and shall not be construed to limit any general statement that it follows to the specific or similar items or matters immediately following it. Unless the context demands otherwise, the word “or” shall have the inclusive meaning identified with the phrase “and/or”. Any reference made in this Terms and Conditions Agreement to a statute or statutory provision shall include any amendments or successors thereto as in effect at the time the particular provision of this Terms and Conditions Agreement is to be given effect, along with any then-applicable rules or regulations promulgated thereunder.
