The following terms and conditions apply to all Coupons made available by and through the ShopGalaTM Offerings, except as otherwise specified on (or in association with) a particular Coupon and except as otherwise required by law. All persons accepting, printing, using or attempting to use any Coupon (each, a "Consumer") agree to the terms of this Section 7.
All Coupons are issued by the participating Merchants and made available by and through the ShopGalaTM Offerings. The Merchants are the holders and issuers of the Coupons and under no circumstances shall ShopGalaTM be deemed the holder, issuer or seller of any Coupon. The law applicable to the Coupons shall be the law of the state where the interaction between the applicable Merchant and applicable Consumer occurs. As the holder and issuer of a Coupon, each Merchant is solely responsible for the value and redemption of that Coupon and for any and all bodily injury, illness, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or relating to any Consumer and compliance with all laws including, without limitation, unclaimed property and escheatment laws relating to that Coupon. Coupons are subject to all limitations stated on (and/or associated with) the Coupons or imposed by the applicable Merchants. Neither ShopGalaTM, nor the applicable Merchant, is responsible for lost or stolen Coupons.
The Coupons may provide a discounted price from the actual value of the applicable Merchant’s product(s) or service(s). The discount is available until the expiration date stated on the face of the Coupon. After a Coupon has expired, that Coupon may not be redeemed, nor does that Coupon have any value, unless otherwise required by law or allowed by the applicable Merchant. A Consumer's redemption of a Coupon constitutes an acceptance of that redemption and a waiver of any and all claims associated with that Coupon. Coupons may not be redeemed for products or services other than those specified on the applicable Coupons or as otherwise specifically permitted by this Section 7.
Coupons are not transferable without notice to and acceptance of ShopGalaTM and/or the applicable Merchant(s), as applicable, unless such transfer is permitted pursuant to applicable law. No resale of Coupons is permitted unless such resale is permitted pursuant to applicable law. Coupons should be treated as if the Coupons were cash. Coupons are not redeemable for cash (in whole or in part) and have no cash value except as required by applicable law. Coupons may not be combined with any other offer, coupon, promotion or discount or certificate and must be used in a single visit to the Merchant, except as required by applicable law. The issuance of any credits for Coupons is at the sole discretion of the applicable Merchants, except as required by applicable law. All restaurant Coupons are valid for dine in only unless otherwise stated on the applicable Coupons. Coupons may not be used for alcohol, prior balances, shipping or handling, tips, gratuities or other fees, except as expressly provided on the applicable Coupons, as allowed by the applicable Merchants or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. Unless otherwise stated on the applicable Coupon, the Coupon value does not include sales, value added or use taxes, which may be charged to the Consumer separately by the Merchant at the time that the Consumer redeems the Coupon. Any attempted redemption of a Coupon in violation of this Section 7 will render that Coupon void.
Each Consumer hereby knowingly fully waives and releases ShopGalaTM and its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents and representatives, from any and all injuries, liabilities, damages, claims and/or rights of any nature whatsoever arising from or related to any act or omission of any Merchant in connection with any Coupon, the provision of the services and products relating to any Coupon and/or compliance by any Merchant with applicable law including, without limitation, unclaimed property and escheatment laws. ShopGala’sTM sole role is as the marketing agent for the Merchants, and the applicability of, and compliance with, any relevant law relating to any Coupon is solely determined by and the obligation of the applicable Merchants. In the event of a conflict between the Agreement and the terms and conditions associated with a Coupon, the terms and conditions associated with the Coupon itself will control.
Void where prohibited. Please be advised that ShopGalaTM does not itself provide the Coupons, or the associated products or services, and the ultimate terms and conditions of any such Coupons, and associated products and/or services, will be determined by the Merchants providing the Coupons. ShopGalaTM is not responsible for Coupons that are lost, late, illegible, misdirected, damaged, incomplete or incorrect.

The featured Sample size and type may vary, and Samples are limited in quantity and subject to availability. As such, ShopGalaTM reserves the right to substitute Samples with a similar product based on availability. Void where prohibited. Samples are non-transferable and cannot be redeemed for cash.

THE SHOPGALATM OFFERINGS, ANY PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES THAT YOU MAY RECEIVE FROM ANY MERCHANTS AND/OR THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS, AND/OR ANY OTHER PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES THAT YOU MAY APPLY FOR OR RECEIVE THROUGH THE SHOPGALATM OFFERINGS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “TOTAL OFFERINGS”) ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, ARE DISCLAIMED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE DISCLAIMER OF ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND/OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE). IN PARTICULAR, BUT NOT AS A LIMITATION THEREOF, SHOPGALATM MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT: (A) THE TOTAL OFFERINGS WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; (B) THE TOTAL OFFERINGS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE; (C) YOU WILL QUALIFY FOR COUPONS AND/OR SAMPLES; (D) THE COUPONS WILL BE HONORED BY THE APPLICABLE MERCHANT; (E) YOU WILL REALIZE ANY ECONOMIC BENEFIT FROM THE COUPONS OR OTHER TOTAL OFFERINGS; OR (F) THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE TOTAL OFFERINGS WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE.

NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM SHOPGALATM, ANY MERCHANTS, THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS OR OTHERWISE THROUGH OR FROM THE SITE OR OTHER SHOPGALATM OFFERINGS, SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THE AGREEMENT.
16.LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT SHOPGALATM SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD-PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL AND/OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SHOPGALATM HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW FOR: (A) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE TOTAL OFFERINGS; (B) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND/OR SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION AND/OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED FROM, OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH, THE SHOPGALATM OFFERINGS; (C) THE FAILURE TO QUALIFY FOR COUPONS AND/OR SAMPLES FROM ANY MERCHANT, OR ANY SUBSEQUENT DENIAL OF PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES FROM SAME; (D) THE UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, OR ALTERATION OF, YOUR REGISTRATION DATA; (E) WHETHER THE COUPONS ARE HONORED BY THE APPLICABLE MERCHANT; (F) WHETHER YOU REALIZE ANY ECONOMIC BENEFIT FROM USE OF THE SHOPGALATM OFFERINGS; AND (G) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE TOTAL OFFERINGS. THIS LIMITATION APPLIES TO ALL CAUSES OF ACTION, IN THE AGGREGATE INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, MISREPRESENTATIONS AND ANY AND ALL OTHER CAUSES OF ACTION. YOU HEREBY RELEASE SHOPGALATM FROM ANY AND ALL OBLIGATIONS, LIABILITIES AND CLAIMS IN EXCESS OF THE LIMITATION STATED HEREIN. IF APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT PERMIT SUCH LIMITATION, THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY OF SHOPGALATM TO YOU UNDER ANY AND ALL CIRCUMSTANCES WILL BE FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500.00). THE NEGATION OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND SHOPGALATM. THE ABILITY TO USE THE TOTAL OFFERINGS WOULD NOT BE PROVIDED TO YOU WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.
You may be transferred to Merchant, Third-Party Provider, Social Media Websites and other third-party owned or operated websites through links or frames contained on the Site or otherwise made available by and through the ShopGalaTM Offerings. You are cautioned to read such websites’ terms and conditions and privacy policies before using such websites in order to be aware of the rules governing your use of such websites and their use of your personal and non-personal information. Because ShopGalaTM has no control over such third-party websites and/or resources, you hereby acknowledge and agree that ShopGalaTM is not responsible for the availability of such third-party websites and/or resources. Furthermore, ShopGalaTM does not endorse, and is not responsible or liable for, any terms and conditions, privacy policies, content, advertising, services, products and/or other materials on or made available from such third-party websites or resources, or for any damages and/or losses arising therefrom.

19.DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS
The Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in the State of New York and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict of law principles). Should a dispute arise concerning the ShopGalaTM Offerings, the terms and conditions of the Agreement or the breach of same by any party hereto: (a) the parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties in New York, NY, in accordance with the then current commercial arbitration rules of a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties; and (b) you agree to first commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice which can be found here. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer after receiving your Initial Dispute Notice ("Final Settlement Offer"). If we provide you with a Final Settlement Offer and you do not accept it, or we cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, you can submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties, in your county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which is also available on the Site here. For claims of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. If the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our Final Settlement Offer, then we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if you retained an attorney to represent you in connection with the arbitration, we will reimburse any reasonable attorneys' fees that your attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude any party from: (i) seeking injunctive relief in order to protect its rights pending an outcome in arbitration; and/or (ii) pursuing the matter in small claims court rather than arbitration. Although we may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we will not seek such an award from you unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous.
To the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that you may have against ShopGalaTM and/or its employees, officers, directors, members, representatives and/or assigns. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in the suit. You agree to pay the attorney's fees and court costs that ShopGalaTM incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (A) does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (B) is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these dispute resolution provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first access the Site.
Should any part of the Agreement be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. To the extent that anything in or associated with any ShopGalaTM Offerings is in conflict or inconsistent with the Agreement, the Agreement shall take precedence. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that there is any inconsistency between these Terms and Conditions and: (a) any Contest Rules, insofar as an applicable Contest promotion is concerned, the Contest Rules shall govern; and (b) any Coupon terms, insofar as a Coupon is concerned, the applicable Coupon terms shall govern. Our failure to enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. The parties do not intend that any agency or partnership relationship be created through operation of the Agreement. ShopGalaTM may assign its rights and obligations under the Agreement, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice to you. The Agreement may not, however, be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under the Agreement. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.
