ZWILLING CULINARY INSIDER REWARDS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The Zwilling Culinary Insider Rewards program, known as the "Program," is a loyalty program offered by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, LLC, also referred to as "the Company." These terms outline the guidelines for participating in the Program.
These terms include a compulsory arbitration clause that necessitates you to resolve any claims you may have against the company through arbitration on an individual basis. This means that you cannot file claims against the company in court and acknowledge your consent to waive the right to participate in class action lawsuits through arbitration. It impacts your legal rights. Please read it attentively.
Subject to Change: Updates to Terms and Conditions
The Company reserves the right to modify, add, or remove any part of the Program rules, terms, conditions, or benefits at its sole discretion. These changes may be made at any time, with or without notice, and may impact the value of previously accumulated points, rewards, and redemption timeframe. Additionally, the Company holds the authority to terminate a member's membership, reduce their point balance, or declare rewards forfeited for any attempted violation of these Terms, fraudulent activity, commercial or resale endeavors, or any other reason deemed justifiable at the Company's discretion.

Arbitration Agreement & Waiver of Certain Rights
You and the Company agree that, except as set forth below, we will resolve any complaints, claims or disputes between us (including any disputes between you and any of our third-party agents) whether arising or based on any contract, statute, regulation, tort or otherwise, through binding and final individual arbitration instead of through court proceedings. You and the Company hereby waive any right to a jury trial or to class or collective treatment of any Claim (defined below). By agreeing to binding and final arbitration, you and the Company agree that they are knowingly, voluntarily, and willingly waiving the right to a jury trial or to participate in or be represented in any class action or class arbitration. All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between the Company and or you and a third-party agent our stores (a "Claim") will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA Rules"). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration proceedings will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration, by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies, or as specifically permitted by state law. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. However, the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms and Conditions including, but not limited to, a claim that all or any part of these Terms and Conditions is void or voidable.
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, the Company will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator's fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or the Company from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies other than a court. You and the Company also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court on an individual, non-class basis. In addition, you, and the Company retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional injunctive relief only, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms and Conditions, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms and Conditions.
Neither you nor the Company may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or the Company’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
Right to Opt-Out of this Arbitration Agreement: You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within the first 30 days after you enroll in the Program. You may also opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within 30 days after we notify you regarding a material change to this Arbitration Agreement. You may opt out by sending an email to the Company at email@example.com or by sending a letter to Zwilling J.A. Henckels, LLC, Attn: Legal Department, 270 Marble Ave Pleasantville, NY 10570. You should include your printed name, mailing address, and the words “Reject Arbitration.”
If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration you and Zwilling J.A. Henckels, LLC each waive any right to a jury trial. No waiver of any provision of this Section of the Terms and Conditions will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of these Terms and Conditions. The arbitrator may award in the arbitration the same damages or other relief available under applicable law, including injunctive and declaratory relief, as if the action were brought in court on an individual basis. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing or herein, the arbitrator may not issue a "public injunction" and any such "public injunction" may be awarded only by a federal or state court. If either party seeks a "public injunction," all other claims and prayers for relief must be adjudicated in arbitration first and any prayer or claim for a "public injunction" in federal or state court stayed until the arbitration is completed, after which the federal or state court can adjudicate the party's claim or prayer for "public injunctive relief." In doing so, the federal or state court is bound under principles of claim or issue preclusion by the decision of the arbitrator. This Section of the Terms and Conditions will survive the termination of your relationship with the Company.
This section limits certain rights, including the right to maintain a court action, the right to a jury trial, the right to participate in any form of class or representative claim, the right to engage in discovery except as provided in AAA rules, and the right to certain remedies and forms of relief. Other rights that you or the company would have in court also may not be available in arbitration.
Important note: Points will expire 365 days after the date that they are posted to your account with no additional activity in those 365 days. Tier downgrade will also occur if the applicable spend amount is not met 365 days after your first purchase.
Passive activity, like points received from birthday rewards and account anniversary rewards, do not count as additional activity which would keep an account active.
