You are responsible for paying all applicable sales taxes, use taxes, or any other taxes or governmental assessments on your purchases of Products (“Taxes”), and you will be charged for those Taxes.

Your payment for that total amount is due when you submit your order. You hereby authorize Albertson’s to charge that total amount to the credit card you designate when you submit your order and to collect that amount from the credit card issuer. You agree to pay that amount to Albertson’s if Albertson’s cannot collect it from the credit card issuer for any reason or if you select the option for in-store payment and product pick up, when available.
2.7 Substitution Policy. Although Albertson’s will usually have enough inventory to fill your online order, occasionally some Products may be temporarily unavailable. Albertson’s does not warrant that Products will be available at all times, and it will not have any liability to you if any Product you order is unavailable. If a Product that you have selected is unavailable and you have indicated on the order form that you are willing to accept substitutions, Albertson’s may, at its sole discretion, except where prohibited or as otherwise directed by law, substitute a Product that is reasonably similar to the Product you selected. In making substitutions, Albertson’s will make a reasonable effort to follow any instructions given by you in the “Special Instructions” field on the order form.

If Albertson’s accepts your online order and the total amount due to Albertson’s for that order is received in full, Albertson’s will make the order available for pick up at the Albertson’s-authorized location you designate in your order form or, in limited circumstances and when the option is made available by Albertson’s, in its sole discretion, will deliver, by Albertson’s-authorized courier, or mail, by U.S. Mail or other commercial carrier, the order to you at the address you designate on the order form. Albertson’s, acting in its sole discretion and without notice, reserves the right to change at any time the authorized locations at which customers may pick up Products purchased through Albertson’s online shopping services or any or all of its delivery options.

13. GENERAL PROVISIONS
13.1 Entire Agreement/No Waiver. The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. No waiver by Albertson’s of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
13.2 Correction of Errors and Inaccuracies. The Contents may contain typographical errors or other errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Albertson’s therefore reserves the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions and to change or update the Contents at any time without prior notice. Albertson’s does not, however, guarantee that any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions will be corrected.
13.3 Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of the Agreement shall be interpreted so as to be effective and valid under applicable law. If, however, any provision of the Agreement is held to be prohibited by, or invalid under, applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the other provisions of the Agreement.
13.4 Enforcement/Choice of Law. If any part of the Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not affect any other provision of the Agreement, all of which will remain in full force and effect. The Agreement shall be governed by, and will be interpreted according to, the laws of the State of Idaho, U.S.A., without regard to any conflict-of-laws provisions.
13.5 Dispute Resolution/Choice of Forum. Any controversy, claim, or dispute of whatever nature arising between the parties (a “Dispute”), including, without limitation, a Dispute arising out of, or having to do with the Site, including any Contents or Service, or the Agreement, shall be resolved by mediation or, failing mediation, by binding arbitration. This agreement to mediate or arbitrate shall continue in full force and effect despite the expiration, rescission, or termination of the Agreement. Either party may begin the mediation process by giving a written notice to the other party setting forth the nature of the Dispute. The parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute by mediation within 60 days of receipt of that notice. If the Dispute has not been resolved by mediation as provided above, or if a party fails to participate in a mediation, then the Dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration in Boise, Idaho. The arbitration shall be undertaken pursuant to the substantive laws of the State of Idaho and the Federal Arbitration Act, and the decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties knowingly and voluntarily waive their rights to have their dispute tried and adjudicated by a judge or jury. Any party may demand arbitration as provided above by sending written notice to the other party. The arbitration and the selection of the arbitrator(s) shall be conducted in accordance with such rules as may be agreed upon by the parties or, failing agreement, within 30 days after arbitration is demanded, under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, as such rules may be modified by this agreement. In any Dispute which involves more than $1,000,000 in damages, three arbitrators shall be used. Unless the parties agree otherwise, they shall be limited in their discovery to directly relevant documents. The arbitrator(s) shall resolve any discovery disputes. The arbitrator(s) shall have the authority to award actual money damages (with interest on unpaid amounts from the date due), specific performance, and temporary injunctive relief, but the arbitrator(s) shall not have the authority to award exemplary or punitive damages, and the parties expressly waive any claimed right to receive money damages in excess of its actual compensatory damages. The costs of arbitration, but not the costs and expenses of the parties, shall be shared equally by the parties. If a party fails to proceed with arbitration, unsuccessfully challenges the arbitration award, or fails to comply with the arbitration award, the other party is entitled to costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, for having to compel arbitration or defend or enforce the award. Except as otherwise required by law, the parties agree to maintain as confidential all information or documents obtained during the arbitration process, including the resolution of the Dispute. Notwithstanding the above, the parties recognize that certain business relationships could give rise to the need for one or more of the parties to seek emergency, provisional, or summary relief. Immediately following the issuance of any such relief, the parties agree to the stay of any judicial proceedings pending mediation or arbitration of all underlying Disputes. Any Disputes as to rights to injunctive relief or rights relating to intellectual property or confidentiality obligations will be venued in a state or federal court situated in Boise, Idaho, U.S.A., and you hereby irrevocably submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose.
