Most customer concerns can be resolved promptly and to the customer's satisfaction by emailing customer support at support@plntd.com. If such efforts are unsuccessful in the reasonable opinion of PLNTD, a party intending to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (Notice).

This arbitration agreement is subject to Queensland Law. The arbitrator's award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if PLNTD makes any future change to this dispute resolution provision, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to PLNTD. If the arbitration in this Section is found unenforceable or not applicable for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction in Queensland, Australia. You hereby accept the exclusive jurisdiction of such court for this purpose.
