Dispute Resolution


You and Hardware and Tools Corp. agree to resolve any controversy, dispute, or claim arising out of or relating to your purchase of any product or service from Hardware and Tools Corp. by binding Arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association, or in a small claims court, and judgment on the arbitration award rendered by the Arbitrator(s) may be entered in a court having competent jurisdiction. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted and covers all controversies, disputes, claims arising out or relating to your purchase including, but not limited to contract claims, tort claims and statutory claims, or any combination of claims. We agree that the small claim proceeding will take place in Small Claims Division, Winchester Frederick General District Court, 26th Judicial District of Virginia, Winchester Virginia.

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or the breach thereof, to be settled by arbitration will be 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.

This Arbitration Agreement affects your legal rights. An arbitration is resolved by a neutral party and not a judge or jury. There is less discovery and less exchange of information between the parties to an arbitration than might occur in a court proceeding. An arbitration award is final and binding and will only be overturned or reversed by a court in very limited circumstances. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Hardware and Tools Corp. are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
