Sales Tax
We have prepared this sales tax policy statement to explain to you when and why we collect sales tax on your purchases. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Even if we do not collect sales tax from you, you may owe sales tax on your purchase. Unless you live in Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon, your state most likely requires purchasers to report and pay tax on all purchases that are not taxed at the time of sale. The tax may be reported and paid on your individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return. For more information, please visit your state’s department of revenue website. ARCHVISTA, INC. COLLECTS SALES TAX in states where we have physical presence (or nexus), including California. ARCHVISTA, INC. DOES NOT COLLECT SALES TAX in any state NOT listed above because ARCHVISTA, Inc. is not required to collect sales or use tax in these states. FOR OUR TAX-EXEMPT CUSTOMERS: ARCHVISTA, INC. DOES NOT COLLECT SALES TAX if we have your exemption certificate on file.

Governing Law; Dispute Resolution; Forum and Venue.
These Terms and any claim or action related to or arising from these Terms or content on the Site shall be governed by California law, without regard to any provision that would make the laws of another jurisdiction applicable.

The arbitration shall be conducted by one (1) arbitrator who is a retired judge. The parties shall conduct discovery as agreed upon or as permitted by the arbitrator. A party may file for an order on the arbitration decision exclusively in the California Superior Court, County of Alameda or the United States District Court for the Central District of California. Each party may bring a claim or action for injunctive relief without submitting the claim to final and binding arbitration. Each party consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the California Superior Court, County of Alameda or the United States District Court for the Central District of California for any equitable claim or other action related to or arising from these Terms.
