European data and transfers outside of the European Economic Area
The Site is published in the United States and is governed by United States law. If you are located within the European Union, you should be aware that your Personal Data will be collected in the United States. With respect to information you provide to us in the course of you making a purchase, the collection is necessary because our servers and data centers are located in the United States and without collecting your Personal Data we are not able to process your payment and perform our obligation to provide you the services or goods you have purchased from us.

Also, we may transmit your data from the United States to other countries or jurisdictions in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating the Site. You acknowledge these risks and consent to our transmitting your Personal Data.
How long do we keep your Personal Data?
The period for which we retain Personal Data varies according to the use of that information. In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep certain data for a minimum period of time. Unless specific legal requirements dictate otherwise, we will retain Personal Data no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data were collected and processed (as described above).
European citizen privacy rights
Your rights regarding the Personal Data we hold on you depend on the applicable laws in your country.If you are a European citizen, you have the right to request that we:
- provide you with information regarding whether we process your data, including details relating to such processing
- correct any inaccurate data we might have about your without undue delay

- under certain circumstances, erase your personal data without undue delay
- under certain circumstances, be restricted from processing your data
- under certain circumstances, furnish you with the personal data which you provided us within a structured, commonly used and machine readable format
Where we process your Personal Data solely on the basis of your consent, European citizens have the right to withdraw consent to our processing Personal Data at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of our processing before the withdrawal. European citizens also have the right to lodge a complaint with your data protection supervisory authority.
The exercise of the above rights might be subject to certain conditions and we might require further information from you before we can respond to your request.

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY - IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE SUIT IN COURT.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, Alan Fein, Esq., at 150 West Flagler Street, Suite 2200, Miami, Florida 33132. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse the foregoing fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and the Heat agree not to seek any attorney's fees and expert witness costs unless the arbitrator finds that a claim or defense was frivolous or asserted for an improper purpose. You and the Heat understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, you and the Heat would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You and the Heat further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
If your claim is solely for monetary relief of $10,000 or less, and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing under the AAA Rules in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
For residents outside the United States, arbitrations shall be initiated in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and you and the Heat agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court in Miami-Dade County, Florida to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by these arbitration provisions by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: ATTN: General Counsel, 601 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida 33132 and email@example.com.
If any clause within these arbitration provisions is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from these arbitration provisions, and the remainder of the arbitration provisions will be given full force and effect. In the event some or all of these arbitration provisions are determined to be unenforceable for any reason, or if a claim, dispute, or controversy is brought that is found by a court to be excluded from the scope of these arbitration provisions, you and the Heat agree to waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury.
Class Action Waiver
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY - IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
The terms of this provision will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any of the Heat’s affiliates, to the extent that any such claims arise out of your access to, and/or use of the Site, and/or the provision of content, services, and/or technology on or through the Site.

If you are under the Age of Consent you should not use this Site, and under no circumstances should you send information about yourself to us.
