The Walking Company Website Security Policy
We take the issue of online security very seriously. It is your information, and we make sure it stays that way.
The Walking Company has put many safeguards into our electronic store so that you can enjoy your shopping experience without having to worry about credit card transactions. Our secure shopping system is made up of three layers:
The first layer "Safe Technology" is the most visible to you. Our Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology is the industry standard and among the best software available today to transmit sensitive information. SSL is a transport level technology for authentication and data encryption between a Web server and a Web browser. VeriSign, Inc. has protected every secure page on our site with a digital certificate. We encrypt all of your personal information so that it cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.
The second layer, our "Firewall", works behind the scenes. We protect all of your private information behind a network security system. Only our own staff has access to this information, and then only enough to service your order.
As a final precaution, we authorize all credit card transactions through the same private channel that we use for traditional orders.
If you have any questions about our security system, please contact us.

Agreement to Arbitrate
Any civil action, claim, dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to access to or use of the Website will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, before a single arbitrator, rather than in court. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of access to or use of the Website, and to arbitrate any part of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of the this section or these Terms is void or voidable.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) exclusively in Los Angeles County, California, under the AAA’s rules and procedures, as modified by this section. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at http://www.adr.org.
You and we will select the arbitrator, and if you and we are unable to reach agreement on selection of the arbitrator within 30 days after the notice of arbitration is served, then the AAA will select the arbitrator. Arbitration will not commence until the party requesting arbitration has deposited U.S. $1,000 with the arbitrator for the arbitrator’s fees and costs. The party requesting arbitration will advance such sums as are required from time to time by the arbitrator to pay the arbitrator’s fees and costs until the prevailing party is determined or the parties have agreed in writing to an alternate allocation of fees and costs.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of California, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving our other Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. Judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrator is final, binding and conclusive upon you and us and your and our respective administrators, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, and may only be entered in the state or federal courts of record for Los Angeles County, California.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS PART OF ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS.
