TESORO therefore will charge your credit card(s) at the time of purchase a deposit equal to 100% of the purchase price, plus any taxes and delivery fees. In the event of an unexpected delay in the shipment of the merchandise, you will be notified and given an opportunity for a full refund.

COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT NOTICES
SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION OF ACCESS
We have the right to deny access to, and to suspend or terminate your access to, the Site, or to any features or portions of the Site, and to remove and discard any content or materials you have submitted to the Site, at any time and for any reason, including for any violation by you of these terms and conditions. In addition, we have a policy of terminating the Site usage privileges of users who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights. In the event that we suspend or terminate your access to and/or use of the Site, you will continue to be bound by the terms and conditions that were in effect as of the date of your suspension or termination.
INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Either party asserting a dispute shall first try in good faith to resolve it by providing written notice as specified below to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond. Notice shall be made by first-class or registered mail (1) to TESORO at 2500 Windy Ridge Parkway SE, Atlanta, GA 30339, Attn: Legal Department, or (2) to you at the postal address on file with TESORO. Both you and TESORO agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration or suit against the other party.
Scope of the Arbitration Agreement.
Mindful of the high cost of legal disputes, not only in dollars but in time and energy, both you and TESORO agree that any legal dispute or claim between you and TESORO arising out of, relating to or concerning this Site and/or this agreement, any communications between you and TESORO, or your participation in any other program or service provided by TESORO, shall be resolved through binding individual arbitration unless you opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement using the process explained below or unless you are permitted to resolve your legal dispute or claim outside of arbitration pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement.
All arbitration proceedings between you and TESORO will be governed by the rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect (the “Rules”). You or TESORO may commence an arbitration against the other by delivering a request for arbitration as specified in the Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a sole neutral arbitrator selected by agreement between you and TESORO. If you and TESORO cannot agree on the appointment of a single arbitrator within 30 days after the request for arbitration, a neutral arbitrator will be selected as provided in the Rules. The arbitration will be conducted at a site specified by TESORO in Atlanta, Georgia. The award of the arbitrator will be the exclusive remedy of you and TESORO for all claims, counterclaims, issues or accountings presented or pleaded to the arbitrator. The award of the arbitrator may require payment of the costs, fees, and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in any such arbitration by the non-prevailing party. Judgment upon the award may be entered in a state court presiding over Atlanta, Georgia or, if subject-matter jurisdictional requirements can be satisfied, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, and you irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction and venue of any such courts in any action or proceeding brought to enforce a judgment. Any additional costs, fees or expenses incurred in enforcing the award may be charged against the party that resists its enforcement.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, TO SUE, OR TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING ANY CLASS-ACTION SUIT. Notwithstanding the foregoing waiver, either you or TESORO may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply. Furthermore, you may file a petition seeking to bring a claim for public injunctive relief, if provided for under applicable statute, before a court of proper jurisdiction and venue as stated in this agreement. If such a court finds that the right to pursue a claim for public injunctive relief in court is permitted despite this Arbitration Agreement, you may proceed with such claim in such court.. The term “dispute” means any dispute, action, claim, or another controversy between you and TESORO, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.
Except as set forth above, if any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Agreement. Only the arbitrator is authorized to make determinations as to the scope, validity, or enforceability of this Agreement, including whether any dispute falls within its scope. However, the parties agree that any issue concerning the validity of the lawsuit waiver above must be decided by a court, and an arbitrator does not have the authority to consider the validity of such waiver.
Right to Opt-Out of this Arbitration Agreement.
Either party asserting a dispute shall first try in good faith to resolve it by providing written notice as specified below to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond. Notice shall be made by first-class or registered mail (1) to TESORO at 2500 Windy Ridge Parkway SE, Atlanta, GA 30339, Attn: Legal Department, or (2) to you at the postal address on file with TESORO. Both you and TESORO agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration against the other party.
GOVERNING LAW, JURISDICTION, AND OTHER TERMS
The Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act and other applicable federal law. To the extent state law applies to any aspect of the Arbitration Agreement, and with regard to any interpretations of this agreement or any permitted non-arbitrated disputes or claims under this agreement, the law of the State of Georgia will govern without regard to principles of choice or conflicts of law. You agree that any permitted non-arbitrated disputes or claims between you and TESORO arising from or related to the Site or this Agreement shall exclusively be resolved in a state court presiding over Atlanta, Georgia or, if the subject matter jurisdictional requirements can be satisfied, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, and you irrevocably consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such state and federal courts for any such dispute or claim. You waive any right that you may have to object to the personal jurisdiction or venue of such state and federal courts.
You are responsible for compliance with applicable laws. Any use in contravention of this provision or any provision of this agreement is at your own.
You agree that TESORO may at any time change the terms, conditions, and notices under which this Site is offered. Such changes will be effective when posted. By continuing to use the Site after we post any such changes, you accept the terms and conditions as modified. We reserve the right to make changes to, or to suspend or discontinue (temporarily or permanently), this Site or any portion of this Site. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and TESORO as a result of this agreement or your use of this Site. TESORO’s performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process and nothing contained in this agreement is in derogation of TESORO’s right to comply with law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of this Site or information provided to or gathered by TESORO with respect to such use.
The communications between you and us via this Site use electronic means, whether you visit this Site or send us an email, or whether we post notices on this Site or communicate with you via email. For contractual purposes, you consent to receive communications from us in an electronic form, and you agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if it were in writing. The foregoing does not affect your non-waivable rights.
If any provision of these terms and conditions is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of these terms and conditions shall continue to be fully valid, binding, and enforceable. These terms and conditions are not intended to benefit any third party and do not create any third party beneficiaries. Accordingly, these terms and conditions may only be invoked or enforced by you or us.
