21. Scope of Disclaimers, Exclusions, and Limits
The disclaimers, exclusions, and limits stated in sections 18, 19, and 20 apply to the greatest extent allowed by law, but no more. We do not intend to deprive you of any mandatory protections provided to you by law. Because some jurisdictions may prohibit the disclaimer of some warranties, the exclusion of some damages, or other matters, one or more of the disclaimers, exclusions, or limits may not apply to you.
22. Loss Payment (aka Indemnification)
You will pay us for any loss of ours that is caused by any of the following:
your access of the Website;
your conduct on the Website;
your breach of these terms;
your violation of rights of another person, including intellectual property and privacy rights;
your violation of law; or
your negligent or intentional conduct.
But you are not required to pay if the loss was caused by our intentional misconduct.
“Loss” means an amount that we are legally responsible for or pay in any form. Amounts include, for example, a judgment, a settlement, a fine, damages, injunctive relief, staff compensation, a decrease in property value, and expenses for defending against a claim for a loss (including fees for legal counsel, expert witnesses, and other advisers). A loss can be tangible or intangible; can arise from bodily injury, property damage, or other causes; can be based on tort, breach of contract, or any other theory of recovery; and includes incidental, direct, and consequential damages.
A loss is “caused by” an event if the loss would not have happened without the event, even if the event is not a proximate cause of the loss.
Our Duty to Notify You
If we have your contact information, we will notify you before the 30th day after we know or should reasonably have known of a claim for a loss that you might be compelled to pay. But our failure to give you timely notice does not end your obligation, except if that failure prejudices your ability to mitigate losses.
Legal Defense of a Claim
We have control over defending a claim for a loss (including settling it), unless we direct you to control the defense. You and we will cooperate with each other in good faith on a claim.
Our rights under this section do not affect other rights we might have.
23. Governing Law; Place for Resolving Disputes
For purposes of this section, the Website will be deemed solely based in the state of Delaware and will be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over the Company, either specific or general, in any other jurisdiction.
24. Dispute Resolution
Each party will allow the other a reasonable opportunity to comply before it claims that the other has not met the duties under these terms. The parties will first meet and negotiate with each other in good faith to try to resolve all disputes between the parties arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms.
Either party may elect to litigate the following type of case or controversy:
an action seeking equitable relief, or
a suit to compel compliance with this dispute resolution process.
If the parties cannot settle a dispute arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms through negotiation after 30 days, either party may, by notice to the other party and the International Institute of Conflict Prevention & Resolution (“CPR”), demand mediation under the Mediation Procedure of CPR.
Mediation will take place in Wilmington, Delaware. The language of the mediation will be English. Each party will bear its own costs in mediation, and the parties will share equally between them all third-party mediation costs unless the parties agree differently in writing.
If the parties cannot settle a dispute through mediation, the parties will settle any unresolved dispute arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms by arbitration administered by CPR under its Rules for Administered Arbitration. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, enforceability, or formation of this agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this agreement is void or voidable.
A single arbitrator will preside over the arbitration and issue a final award on all issues submitted to the arbitrator. The arbitrator may grant whatever relief that would be available in a court at law or in equity, except that the arbitrator will not award punitive or exemplary damages, or damages otherwise limited or excluded in these terms. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Arbitration will take place in Wilmington, Delaware. The language of the arbitration will be English. The parties will bear equally the costs of arbitration, including the fees and expenses of the arbitrator, and each party will bear the costs associated with its case, subject to the arbitrator’s right to award costs and fees to the prevailing party under these terms.
The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1–16, governs the interpretation and enforcement of these terms, plus any post-award proceedings. The arbitrator’s authority to grant relief will be subject to the provisions of these terms and the CPR Code of Ethics for Arbitrators in Commercial Disputes.
Right to Injunctive Relief
Both parties acknowledge that remedies at law may be inadequate to provide an aggrieved party with full payment if the other party breaches these terms, and that an aggrieved party may seek injunctive relief if a breach happens, besides seeking all other remedies available at law or in equity.
Recovery of Expenses
In any proceedings between the parties arising out of this agreement or relating to the subject matter of this agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party, besides any other relief awarded, all expenses that the prevailing party incurs in those proceedings, including legal fees and expenses.
For purposes of this section, “prevailing party” means, for any proceeding, the party in whose favor an award is rendered, except that if in those proceedings the award finds in favor of one party on one or more claims or counterclaims and in favor of the other party on one or more other claims or counterclaims, neither party will be the prevailing party. If any proceedings are voluntarily dismissed or are dismissed as part of settlement of that dispute, neither party will be the prevailing party in those proceedings.
Jury Trial Waiver
Both parties hereby waive the right to a trial by jury for any dispute arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms. Either party may enforce this waiver up to and including the first day of trial.
Class Action Waiver
The parties will conduct any proceedings to resolve a dispute in any forum on an individual basis only. Neither you nor we will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. The parties will not combine any arbitration or proceeding with another without the advanced written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
Limitation on Time to Bring Claims
A party will not file a claim arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms more than one year after the cause of action arose. Any claim brought after one year is barred.
25. General Provisions
These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us about your access to the Website. It supersedes all earlier or contemporaneous terms between you and us about access to the Website. A printed version of these terms will be admissible in any proceedings arising out of (or relating to) these terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and kept in printed form.
Copy of these Terms
You may—and we recommend that you—print these terms on your printer or save them to your computer. If you have trouble printing a copy, please contact us at [email protected] and we will email you a copy.
We may change these terms on one or more occasions. We will try to post changes on the Website at least 15 days before they become effective. Changes will become effective on the “last updated” date stated at the top of the terms. Changes will not apply to continuing disputes or to disputes arising out of (or relating to) events happening before the posted changes. While we will try to notify you when we make changes to these terms, we do not assume an obligation to do so, and it is your responsibility to frequently check this webpage to review the most current terms. By continuing to use the Website after we post changes to these terms, you agree to the revised terms. If you do not agree to the revised terms, your exclusive remedy is to stop accessing the Website.

We may assign our rights or delegate any performance under these terms without your consent. You will not assign your rights or delegate your performance under these terms without our advanced written consent. Any attempted assignment of rights or delegation of performance in breach of this provision is void.
If either party fails to require the other party to perform any provision of these terms, that failure does not prevent the party from later enforcing that provision. If either party waives the other’s breach of a provision, that waiver is not treated as waiving a later breach of the provision.
If any part of these terms is for any reason held to be unenforceable, the rest of it remains fully enforceable if the essential provisions of these terms for each party remain valid.
Sending Notice to Us
You may send notice to us by email at [email protected] unless a specific email address is set out for giving notice. We will consider an email notice received by us only when our server sends a return message to you acknowledging receipt. We may change our contact information on one or more occasions by posting the change on the Website. Please check the Website for the most current information for sending notice to us.
Sending Notice to You—Electronic Notice
You consent to receiving any notice from us in electronic form either (1) by email to the last known email address we have for you or (2) by posting the notice on a place on the Website chosen for this purpose. We will consider notices sent to you by email received when our email service shows transmission to your email address. You state that any email address you gave us for contacting you is a current and valid email address for receiving notice, and that your computer has hardware and software configured to send and receive email through the Internet and to print any email you receive. You may change this consent and request paper notice by normal postal delivery, but if you do, we may collect the reasonable cost and postage for sending postal notice.
Rights and Remedies Cumulative
All rights and remedies provided in these terms are cumulative and not exclusive, and the assertion by a party of any right or remedy will not prevent the assertion by the party of any other rights or the seeking of any other remedies available at law, in equity, by statute, in any other agreement between the parties, or otherwise.
Successors and Assigns
These terms inure to the benefit of, and are binding on, the parties and their respective successors and assigns. This section does not address, directly or indirectly, whether a party may assign rights or delegate obligations under these terms.
We are not responsible for any failure to perform if unforeseen circumstances or causes beyond our reasonable control delays or continues to delay our performance, including:
Acts of God, including fire, flood, earthquakes, hurricanes, tropical storms, or other natural disasters;
War, riot, arson, embargoes, acts of civil or military authority, or terrorism;
Strikes, or shortages in transportation, facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials;
Failure of the telecommunications or information services infrastructure; and
Hacking, SPAM, or any failure of a computer, server, network, or software.
Permission to Send Emails to You

We do not provide facilities for sending or receiving confidential electronic communications. You should consider all messages sent to us or from us as open communications readily accessible to the public. You should not use the Website to send or receive messages you only intend the sender and named recipients to read. Users or operators of the Website may read all messages you send to the Website regardless of whether they are intended recipients.

You acknowledge that when you click on an “I agree,” “I consent,” or other similarly worded “button” or entry field with your mouse, keystroke, or other computer device, your agreement or consent will be legally binding and enforceable and the legal equivalent of your handwritten signature.
We encourage you to provide feedback about the Website. But we will not treat as confidential any suggestion or idea provided by you, and nothing in these terms will restrict our right to use, profit from, disclose, publish, or otherwise exploit any feedback, without payment to you.

Actions permitted under these terms may be taken at any time and on one or more occasions in the actor’s sole discretion.
References to a statute will refer to the statute and any successor statute, and to all regulations promulgated under or implementing the statute or successor, as in effect at the relevant time.
References to numbered sections in these terms also refer to all included sections. For example, references to section 6 also refer to 6.1, 6.1(a), etc.
In computing periods from a specified date to a later specified date, the words “from” and “commencing on” (and the like) mean “from and including,” and the words “to,” “until,” and “ending on” (and the like) mean “to but excluding.”
References to a governmental or quasi-governmental agency, authority, or instrumentality will also refer to a regulatory body that succeeds to the functions of the agency, authority, or instrumentality.
