DISPUTES AND NOTICE OF CLAIM.
This Limited Warranty shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Rhode Island, U.S.A. without regard to conflict of laws provisions. These terms will not limit any consumer protection rights that you may be entitled to under the mandatory laws of your state of residence. This Limited Warranty, and all the terms and limitations contained herein, constitutes the entire agreement between Reef Breeders and the Buyer. By purchasing, installing or using the ATO Covered Products, Buyer is not relying on any oral statements made by anyone, including its authorized dealers, which are in any way different or contrary to the terms and limitations of this Limited Warranty. By purchasing, installing or using any of the ATO Covered Products, Buyer acknowledges that authorized dealerships are not agents of Reef Breeders, and any statements or representations made by authorized dealerships and their employees are not attributable to Reef Breeders. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state. If Reef Breeders provides any of the remedies identified above (i.e., repair, replace or return of the original purchase price), then Buyer agrees that this limitation of remedy shall not have failed the essential purpose of the Limited Warranty.

Buyer shall promptly notify Reef Breeders of any claim under this Limited Warranty. Reef Breeders reserves the right to deny any claims made by the Buyer more than twelve (12) months after any defect or other basis of a claim covered by this Limited Warranty is discovered by the Buyer or should have been discovered by the Buyer.

CLAIM PROCEDURE.
To obtain warranty service or technical support, please contact Reef Breeders’ customer service department at (401) 515-2199. You will receive instructions on how to return the product for repair or replacement. To take advantage of this Limited Warranty, you will be required to

supply an original point of purchase receipt. Buyer shall be responsible for shipment and insurance costs to send ATO Covered Products to Reef Breeders.

DISPUTES
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to these terms or your use of ATO Covered Products, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Reef Breeders or through ReefBreeders.com will be resolved by mediation or binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in Rhode Island small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration
Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of these conditions of use as a court would. If a dispute arises from or relates to the ATO Covered Products, and if the dispute cannot be settled through direct discussions, the parties agree to endeavor first to settle the dispute by mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Procedures before resorting to arbitration. The parties further agree that any unresolved controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. To begin a mediation or an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting mediation first, and if that does not resolve difference, then a letter requesting arbitration and describing
your claim to our registered agent, Reef Breeders LLC, 344 Main Street, STE 101A, Wakefield, RI 02879 USA. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. Neither party will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Limited Warranty. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties, except (1) for judicial review expressly permitted by law or (2) if the arbitrator’s award includes an award of injunctive relief against a party, in which case that party shall have the right to seek judicial review of the injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction that shall not be bound by the arbitrator’s application or conclusions of law.
