5. REGISTRATION, ACCOUNT AND COMMUNICATION PREFERENCES
In order to access and use certain areas or features of the Sites, you will need to register for an account. By creating an account, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete account information, (b) maintain and promptly update, as necessary, your account information, (c) maintain the security of your account credentials, (d) be responsible for the acts or omissions of any third party who has authority to access or use the Sites on your behalf, and (e) immediately notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches or misuse related to the Sites or your account.
By creating an account with us, you also consent to receive electronic communications from us (e.g., via email or by posting notices to the Sites). These communications may include notices about your account (e.g., payment authorizations, password changes and other transactional information) and are part of your relationship with us. You acknowledge that you have read the “E-Signature Disclosure” below and agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing.
You have the right to withdraw your consent to receive electronic communications at any time. If you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please contact us at email@example.com if you wish to receive electronic communications through a different email address than the one we have on file.
You are responsible for the installation, maintenance, and operation of your computer, digital device, browser and software. We only require, at minimum, that you have a working email address that uses a functioning modern app or web browser (such as a recent version of Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari) running on an up-to-date operating system (such as Windows 10, iOS 10, OS X Mojave, etc.). Unsupported apps or browsers may not function properly. Primo is not responsible for errors or failures from any malfunction of your computer, device, browser, or software.
6. ONLINE PAYMENTS
By accessing, viewing or using our online payment service, you authorize us to establish and maintain your invoices and payment authorizations and process your payments according to your instructions. You also represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method. Primo reserves the right to terminate your access to the online payment service at any time with or without cause or prior notice in our sole discretion. When you send the Company a payment authorization, you authorize us to charge your transaction account and remit funds on your behalf. The Company anticipates completing most transactions and posting your payment within two (2) business days of the date you designate. Due to circumstances beyond our control, some transactions may take more than two (2) business days to post. Therefore, the Company should receive payment authorizations at least three (3) business days before the actual payment due date. If you send a payment authorization less than three (3) business days before the payment due date, you may be assessed late charges and penalties by the Company if your payment does not post prior to the due date. If your financial institution or the holder of the account from which you have designated payment is unable to complete your transaction including, but not limited to, insufficient funds, the transaction may not be completed, and the Company may charge you for any returned credit/debit card charges.

17. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH PRIMO AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
a. Binding Arbitration
b. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions
c. Federal Arbitration Act
d. Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution
You and Primo agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to Primo shall be sent by certified mail or courier to DS Services of America, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 2300 Windy Ridge Parkway, Suite 500N, Atlanta, Georgia 30339. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, account number (if you have one) and an email address at which you can be contacted, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. If you and Primo cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or Primo may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 17, commence an arbitration proceeding.
EXCEPT FOR Disputes in which either party seeks injunctive or other equitable relief (INCLUDING DISPUTES (i) arising out of or related to a violation of Section 3, or (ii) for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents), YOU AND PRIMO AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE MUST BE COMMENCED OR FILED BY YOU OR PRIMO WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE THE DISPUTE AROSE, OTHERWISE THE UNDERLYING CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED (WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AND PRIMO WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASSERT SUCH CLAIM REGARDING THE DISPUTE). You and Primo agree that (a) any arbitration (including the hearing) will occur in Cobb County, Georgia, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), which are hereby incorporated by reference, and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of Georgia and the United States, respectively, sitting in Cobb County (for state) and Fulton County (for federal), have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. In addition to the foregoing, demands for arbitration must be accompanied by a detailed statement of claim that is personally verified and executed by the claimant. Moreover, you will not be responsible for any arbitral fees that exceed the fees you would have incurred if the dispute had been brought in court. If you hire an attorney to represent you in arbitration, you are responsible for your attorneys’ fees and costs but may recover them from Primo to the same extent as in court. If the arbitrator finds that your Dispute was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, however, Primo may seek reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees from you, your attorney, or both, to the same extent as in court.
