If you reside in the United States (including its possessions and territories), you and VNYL agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Services or this TOS shall be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court, including the right to a jury and the right to participate in a class action or similar proceeding . Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to this TOS, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and VNYL are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of any Services. If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to VNYL, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (“Claim Notice”). The Claim Notice to VNYL must be addressed as follows: VNYL Attn: Copyright Agent PO Box 179167 Richmond Heights, MO 63117. If VNYL initiates arbitration, it will send a written notice to the email address used for your account. A notice, whether sent by you or by VNYL, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If VNYL and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the notice is received, you or VNYL may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. The payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees with respect to any arbitration action will be governed by the AAA Rules and you and VNYL shall each pay one half of the administration and arbitrator fees and the party that filed the claim shall pay 100% of the filing fee. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA.. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Section __ (the “Arbitration Agreement.”). All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement. Any arbitration hearings will take place in Los Angeles County, California. YOU AND VNYL AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and VNYL agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT This TOS constitutes the entire agreement between you and VNYL and shall govern the use of our Services, superseding any prior version of this TOS between you and us with respect to VNYL Services. You may also be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other VNYL Services, affiliate services, third-party content or third-party software.
CHOICE OF LAW AND FORUM It is at the mutual agreement of both you and VNYL with regard to the TOS that the relationship between the parties shall be governed by the internal laws of the state of Delaware without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Subject to Paragraph __ which requires that any and all claims, causes of action and/or disputes between you and VNYL arising out of the Services or this TOS or the enforcement of this TOS be resolved pursuant to binding arbitration, to the extent a party files a lawsuit with a court , arising out of or relating to the TOS, or the relationship between you and VNYL, or the enforcement of any provisions of this TOS, such lawsuit shall be filed within the state or federal courts within the state of Delaware . You and VNYL agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts as previously mentioned, and agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts.
At any time, should VNYL fail to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS, such failure shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the TOS remain in full force and effect.
You acknowledge, understand and agree that your account is non-transferable by you and any rights to your ID and/or contents within your account shall terminate upon your death. Upon receipt of a copy of a death certificate, your account may be terminated and all contents therein deleted.
You acknowledge, understand and agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or action arising out of or related to the use of our Services or the TOS must be filed within 1 year(s) after said claim or cause of action arose or shall be forever barred.

In most instances, VNYL is NOT the manufacturer of the vinyl record product being used in membership as vinyl LPs. Vinyl manufacturing quality varies from plant to plant, and we will do our best to ensure the product you receive is free from defect, but as with any physical media, anomalies will occur and are to be expected. From time to time, VNYL may act as the manufacturing vendor of vinyl, packaging, or corresponding merchandise. However, it is important to note that due to the inherent inconsistencies in the manufacturing process, there may be anomalies present in the final product. Despite this, VNYL holds itself to the highest standard in both manufacturing and account representation. Furthermore, standard industry practices allow for a +/- 10% tolerance in terms of overages or shortages in the actual creation of a SKU. We strive to minimize these inconsistencies and continuously work towards improving our processes and products.
