credit allocation FOR SECONDHAND ITEMS
While we acknowledge that pricing is not an exact science, we strive to provide fair and accurate credit allocation to each item. Credit allocation represents our good-faith estimate pricing for similar items sold under the same or other brand in second hand retail stores or websites. As prices often fluctuate, we cannot guarantee that credit reflect the prevailing market price at any given time in any given geographic region, but we strive to group items in comparable batches so can receive an equivalent to what you are exchanging.

Redress maintains internal accountability standards for employees and contractors, and we will not tolerate slavery or human trafficking by either.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION; BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
In the event you wish to initiate an action, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by going to our Support Center.
If your issue is not resolved accordingly, then you agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: in the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to any transaction conducted through the Services, or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Terms or any part of it (“Dispute”), the party asserting the Dispute shall first try in good faith to settle such Dispute by providing written notice to the other party (by first-class or registered mail) describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) of the Dispute and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Dispute. Notice shall be sent:
to Redress at: [email protected]
to you at: your last-used billing address or the billing and/or shipping address in your online profile.
You agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration or filing any claim against the other party.
To the extent you cannot resolve any Dispute through the informal dispute resolution procedure described above, A DISPUTE SHALL BE RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. Arbitration is a process established by law that allows parties to a transaction to agree to resolve their Disputes by an independent arbitrator, rather than by a judge and jury. In an arbitration, only the arbitrator hears the evidence presented by both sides and makes a decision that is final and binding on the parties. The arbitrator may award damages and provide other relief as provided by law. By agreeing to arbitrate any Disputes with us, you agree to give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights under this Agreement and with respect to any Dispute, You and Redress expressly delegate to the arbitrator the authority to determine the arbitrability of any Dispute, including the scope, applicability, validity, and enforceability of this arbitration provision. This Arbitration Agreement is intended to require arbitration of every claim or dispute that can lawfully be arbitrated, except for those claims and disputes which by the terms of this Arbitration Agreement are expressly excluded from the requirement to arbitrate. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days’ advance written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Redress will provide such notice by email to your email address on file with Redress and you must provide such notice by email to [email protected]. During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Dispute. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration.
Where the relief sought is $10,000 or less, the parties agree that the arbitration will be conducted by FairClaims (www.fairclaims.com) in accordance with their applicable arbitration rules & procedures effective at the time a claim is made. You are responsible for your own attorneys’ fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise. To begin an arbitration proceeding with FairClaims, you must follow the steps outlined by FairClaims’ How It Works page.
Where the relief sought is $10,001 or more, the parties agree that resolution shall be conducted by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Procedure Rules for claims that do not exceed $250,000 and the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures for claims exceeding $250,000 in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. To begin an arbitration proceeding with JAMS, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: Redress Inc. Attn: General Counsel, 969 Broadway, Suite 200, Oakland, CA 94607.
JAMS’s rules are also available at jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If permitted by JAMS, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.
All aspects of any arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BRING CLASS ACTIONS AND REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS
All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis, not on a class action or other consolidated basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the Dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not be joined with, or otherwise affect, any other Dispute. You and Redress agree that each may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in your or their respective individual capacities and in so doing you and Redress hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in a class action lawsuit or class action arbitration (either as a named-plaintiff or class member), and to assert or participate in any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular cause of action, then that cause of action (and only that cause of action) must remain in court and be severed from any arbitration.
This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act. The terms of the Arbitration Agreement provisions shall survive after this Agreement terminates or your use of the Sites ends.

Termination or cancellation of these Terms shall not affect any right or relief to which the Redress may be entitled, at law or in equity. Upon termination of these Terms, all rights granted to you will terminate and revert to Redress.
Redress reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of these Terms. Such modifications may include, without limitation, changes in prices, implementation of user priorities, implementation of rules for use by you, and discontinuance of functional aspects of the Website. Redress may also add, withdraw or modify Services or Information within the Website at any time in its sole discretion. All such modifications shall be displayed online, and such display shall constitute effective notice under these Terms on the day Redress places them on the Website. You agree to review the terms and conditions of these Terms periodically to be aware of such revisions.
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to choice of law principles, except for the Arbitration Agreement above, which shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. These Terms are for the benefit of, and will be enforceable by, the parties only and are not intended to confer any right or benefit on any third party or to create any obligations or liability of a party to any such third party. If any provision of the Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, that provision shall be severable, and all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. You agree that these Terms and all incorporated agreements may be automatically assigned by Redress, in our sole discretion.
Except as explicitly stated otherwise, any notices to Redress shall be given by certified mail, postage prepaid and return receipt requested to:…………………………………………….
Any notices to you shall be provided to you through the Services or given to you at the email address or physical address you provide to Redress during the registration process. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.
