This defense and indemnification obligation will survive the T&Cs.

Privacy & Personal Information
The legal rights, obligations, and liabilities that you and BendShape have benefited from, been subject to or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, shall survive, and be unaffected by the termination of these T&Cs.
The Website is Copyright 2022 BendShape Mask, LLC. All rights reserved.
BendShape’s trademarks, including, without limitation, BendShape, ShapeFit, Quartz, Feather, Shaped by Science, and MaskBright are owned by BendShape. Nothing in these T&Cs transfers ownership rights or grants any permission, license or other express or implied right to any of BendShape’s trademarks. Any third-party right to a BendShape trademark held to be created by these T&Cs is terminable at will by BendShape.
Other trademarks used on the Website are the property of their respective owners.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
General Legal Terms
The T&Cs constitute the sole and entire legal agreement between you and BendShape concerning the use of the Website. These T&Cs constitute the sole and entire legal agreement between you and BendShape concerning the products and/or services available on the website. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent you have a separate written agreement with BendShape concerning specific BendShape products or services, that agreement will control with respect to the products or services it covers.
You acknowledge that the form and content of the Website may change from time to time with or without prior notice to you.
You agree that if BendShape does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the T&Cs (or which BendShape has the benefit of under any applicable law), BendShape’s forbearance or delay in exercise or enforcement shall not constitute a waiver thereof.
If any disagreement or dispute arises regarding these Terms or any rights or obligations conveyed hereunder, the disagreement shall be resolved, whenever possible, by meeting and conferring. If such efforts are unsuccessful, either you or BendShape (collectively, “Parties” or individually “Party”) shall seek a resolution via binding arbitration, to be conducted in the State and County of New York and in accordance with the then-prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. BendShape shall be entitled to recover its cost of arbitration, and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses if the arbitrator determines that the arbitration was brought in bad faith. Any award conferred shall be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
To the extent legally permissible, the Parties agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, both Parties each waive any right to a jury trial. Parties both agree that either Party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
These T&Cs, and your relationship with BendShape under the T&Cs, shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflict of laws provisions. You and BendShape agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within New York county to resolve any legal matter arising from the T&Cs. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you agree that BendShape shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
If any tribunal having the jurisdiction to decide a matter arising under or in connection with these T&Cs rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be equitably reformed into a valid, lawful provision that most nearly achieves the purpose and effect of the reformed provision, and the rest of the T&Cs shall remain in full force and effect.
These T&Cs are effective as of January 1, 2021 for all BendShape Mask orders placed after Jan 1, 2021.
