  15. Force Majeure

    Gilt shall be excused from performance under these Terms of Use or the Terms of Service, to the extent it is prevented from or delayed from performing, in whole or in part, as a result of an event or series of events caused by or resulting from (1) weather conditions or other elements of nature or acts of God, (2) acts of war, acts of terrorism, insurrection, riots, civil disorders or rebellion, (3) quarantines or embargoes, (4) labor strikes, or (5) other causes beyond the reasonable control of Gilt.

    From time to time, Gilt may offer special promotional offers that may or may not apply to your Gilt account. You agree to be bound by any additional terms and conditions for these special offers, which can be found by clicking here.

    If any of the provisions set forth in these Terms of Use or the Terms of Service are deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, the parties agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the unenforceable condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions of these Terms of Use or the Terms of Service. Section headings are for reference purposes only and do not limit the scope or extent of such section. These Terms of Use or the Terms of Service and the relationship between you and Gilt will be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

    If a dispute arises under these Terms of Use or the Terms of Service between you and Gilt, such dispute shall be resolved, at the filing party’s election, in either a small claims court or by final and binding arbitration administered by the National Arbitration Forum or the American Arbitration Association, under their rules for consumer arbitrations.

Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms of Use or the Terms of Service, Gilt may resort to court action for injunctive relief at any time.

    The failure of Gilt to act with respect to a breach of these Terms of Use or the Terms of Service by you or others does not waive Gilt’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.

  19. Entire Agreement and Admissibility

    These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and Gilt with respect to the subject matter thereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between the parties with respect to such subject matter.

    In some instances, both of these Terms of Use and a separate document that provides additional conditions may apply to a service or product offered via this Site (“Additional Terms”).┬áTo the extent there is a conflict between these Terms of Use and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control unless the Additional Terms expressly state otherwise.
