Securities Laws . This Site may contain statements, estimates or projections that constitute "forward looking statements" as defined under U.S. Federal Securities laws. Generally, the words "believe, expect, intend, estimate, anticipate, project, will" and similar expressions identify forward looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature. Forward looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from Monster Beverage Corporation’s (“MBC”) historical experience and MBC’s present expectations or projections. These risks include, but are not limited to, MBC’s ability to finance expansion plans, share repurchase programs and general operating activities; changes in the non-alcoholic beverage business environment, including actions of competitors and changes in consumer preferences; regulatory and legal changes; interest rate and currency fluctuations; changes in economic and political conditions; MBC’s ability to penetrate and develop new markets, the effectiveness of MBC’s advertising, marketing and promotional programs; litigation uncertainties; adverse weather conditions; inability to achieve volume growth through product and packaging initiatives; changes in the cost and availability of raw materials and the ability to maintain favorable supply arrangements and relationships and procure timely and/or adequate production of all or any products; the marketing efforts of distributors of MBC’s products, most of which distribute products which are competitive to MBC; unilateral decisions by stores or other customers to discontinue carrying all or any of MBC’s products that they are carrying at any time; changes in product category consumption; possible recalls of MBC’s products; and other risks discussed in the Monster Beverage Corporation’s filings with the Securities & Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including the Monster Beverage Corporation’s annual report on Form 10K, which filings are available from the SEC. The aforegoing list of important factors is not exhaustive. You should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward looking statements and expressly disclaim any duty to do so.

If you use the Site from outside of the United States, your connection will be through and to servers located in the United States, your orders placed through the Site will be fully processed in and shipped from the United States and all information you provide will be processed and maintained in our web servers and internal systems located within the United States.

Miscellaneous . This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, USA, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. Subject to the arbitration provision below, any legal actions related to this Agreement and/or the Site, or your use thereof, shall be brought and conducted in Orange County, California, and each user hereby consents to such jurisdiction and authorizes and accepts service of process sufficient for personal jurisdiction in any action against him as contemplated by this section. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach or termination hereof shall be settled by binding arbitration conducted by JAMS/Endispute ("JAMS ") in accordance with JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the "Rules"). The arbitration shall be heard by one arbitrator to be selected in accordance with the Rules, in Orange County, California, and conducted in the English language. Judgment upon any award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Within seven (7) calendar days after appointment, the arbitrator shall set the hearing date, which shall be within ninety (90) calendar days after the filing date of the demand for arbitration unless a later date is required for good cause shown and shall order a mutual exchange of what he/she determines to be relevant documents and the dates thereafter for the taking of up to a maximum of five (5) depositions by each party to last no more than two (2) business days in aggregate for each party. All parties waive the right, if any, to obtain any award for exemplary or punitive damages or any other amount for the purpose or imposing a penalty from the other in any arbitration or judicial proceeding or other adjudication arising out of or with respect to this Agreement, or any breach hereof, including any claim that said Agreement, or any part hereof, is invalid, illegal or otherwise voidable or void. In addition to all other relief, the arbitrator shall have the power to award reasonable attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party. The arbitrator shall make his or her award no later than seven (7) calendar days after the close of evidence or the submission of final briefs, whichever occurs later.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor the right to enforce such provision.
