Your User Content may not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, religion, gender, sexual preference or physical handicap or that are defamatory, indecent, obscene, pornographic or sexually explicit.

You accept and agree that Company has no liability arising from your use of or access to any third party website, service, or content and you release us from any loss or damage incurred by you as a result of any dealings between you and these third parties, including, without limitation, their content, policies, failures, promotions, products, services, actions and/or any damages, losses, failures, or problems caused by, related to or arising therefrom. The inclusion of any link or grant of access on the Sites does not imply or express an affiliation or endorsement of the linked site, app, or contents.

  7. TERMINATION. Company reserves the right to suspend or terminate your license to access and use all or some of the Sites with or without notice if Company, in its sole discretion, determines that you are in breach of these Terms or have engaged in conduct that Company, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate. In the event of suspension or termination by Company, we may delete your User Content, history, and other information; and bar your further use of the Sites. You understand that such actions may be taken without any liability whatsoever to you for any suspension or termination, including for deletion of User Content. All provisions of these Terms that by their nature should survive termination, will survive termination of your access to the Sites, including without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, limitations of liability, and dispute resolution provisions.

COMPANY SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY SITE CONTENT.

BY ACCESSING OR USING A SITE YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOUR ACTIVITIES ARE LAWFUL IN EVERY JURISDICTION WHERE YOU ACCESS OR USE THE SITE. 
  9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE, WILL COMPANY OR ITS THIRD PARTY LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF DATA OR PROFIT, ARISING OUT OF (A) THE USE, OR THE INABILITY TO USE, THE SITES OR SITE CONTENT; (B) USER CONTENT; (C) THE SITES OR SITE CONTENT AND THE AVAILABILITY OR UNAVAILABILITY THEREOF; (D) ACTION TAKEN IN CONNECTION WITH AN INVESTIGATION BY THE COMPANY PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES REGARDING YOUR USE OF THE SITES; (E) ACTION TAKEN IN CONNECTION WITH COPYRIGHT OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNERS; (F) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN THE SITES’ TECHNICAL OPERATION; OR (G) ANY DAMAGE THAT RESULTS FROM EVENTS BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL, SUCH AS DAMAGES TO ANY USER’S COMPUTER, MOBILE DEVICE, OR OTHER EQUIPMENT OR TECHNOLOGY INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGE FROM ANY SECURITY BREACH OR FROM ANY VIRUS, BUGS, TAMPERING, FRAUD, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER LINE OR NETWORK FAILURE OR ANY OTHER TECHNICAL OR OTHER MALFUNCTION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE OR EVEN IF COMPANY OR A COMPANY AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. HOWEVER, IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY PARTIES’ TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES OR CAUSES OR ACTION EXCEED THE LESSER OF (A) THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU, IF ANY, TO COMPANY FOR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES ORDERED THROUGH THE SITES; OR (B) TEN UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($10.00). THE PRIOR LIMITATION ON DAMAGES IS NOT INTENDED TO LIMIT THE COMPANY PARTIES’ OBLIGATION TO PAY PREVAILING PARTY COSTS OR FEES IF RECOVERABLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW. THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION WILL NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE THE COMPANY PARTIES’ LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE CAUSED BY COMPANY PARTIES, OR FOR THE COMPANY PARTIES’ GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD OR INTENTIONAL, WILLFUL, MALICIOUS OR RECKLESS MISCONDUCT.

YOU AGREE THAT IN THE EVENT YOU INCUR ANY DAMAGES, LOSSES OR INJURIES THAT ARISE OUT OF COMPANY’S ACTS OR OMISSIONS, THE DAMAGES, IF ANY, CAUSED TO YOU ARE NOT IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION PREVENTING ANY EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEB SITE, PROPERTY, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR OTHER CONTENT OWNED OR CONTROLLED BY THE COMPANY PARTIES, AND YOU WILL HAVE NO RIGHTS TO ENJOIN OR RESTRAIN THE DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION, ADVERTISING, EXHIBITION OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEB SITE, PROPERTY, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR OTHER CONTENT OWNED OR CONTROLLED BY THE COMPANY PARTIES. 

BY ACCESSING THE SITES, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY BE WAIVING RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS THAT ARE AT THIS TIME UNKNOWN OR UNSUSPECTED, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH WAIVER, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND, AND EXPRESSLY WAIVE, THE BENEFITS OF SECTION 1542 OF THE CIVIL CODE OF CALIFORNIA, AND ANY SIMILAR LAW OF ANY STATE OR TERRITORY, WHICH PROVIDES AS FOLLOWS: 

“A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.”

  1. INDEMNIFICATION.  To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold the Company Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, costs, investigations, liabilities, judgments, settlements and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, that directly or indirectly arise from or are otherwise directly or indirectly related to: (a) your User Content; (b) your use of the Sites, Site Content or activities in connection with the Sites; (c) your breach or anticipatory breach of these Terms; (d) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities, including, without limitation, all regulatory, administrative and legislative authorities; (e) information or material transmitted through your computer, even if not submitted by you, that infringes, violates or misappropriates any copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, patent, publicity, privacy or other right of any person or defames any person; (f) any misrepresentation made by you; or (g) the Company Parties’ use of your information as permitted under these Terms, the Privacy Policy, or any other written agreement between you and Company. You will cooperate as fully required by the Company Parties in the defense of any claim. The Company Parties reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and you will not in any event settle any claim without the prior written consent of a duly authorized employee of the Company Parties.
  2. BINDING ARBITRATION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”).  These Terms will be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, excluding its conflict of laws principles. The arbitration proceedings will be governed by federal arbitration law and by the JAMS (defined below) rules. Both you and Company waive the right to a trial by jury and the right to bring or resolve any dispute as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action. Both you and Company waive the right to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action related to any dispute that is brought by anyone else. Notwithstanding any provision in the JAMS rules to the contrary, the arbitrator will not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding. Except for disputes relating to the infringement of your or Company’s intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, copyright and patents) or where Company is seeking injunctive relief (the “Excluded Disputes”), you and Company each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award are final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms will be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within thirty (30) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration administration service that will hear the case. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Dallas, Texas or – if required by the JAMS rules (or the rules of any alternate arbitration service used by the parties) – in or near your city of residence. The federal or state law that applies to these Terms will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions or class arbitrations; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, or for any Excluded Disputes, then the agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Dallas, Texas. Subject to you demonstrating that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Company will pay as much of the administrative and arbitrator’s fees charged to you by JAMS (or an alternate arbitration service) as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost prohibitive to you as compared to litigation. Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In no event will you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief or to enjoin or restrain the operation or exploitation of the Sites or any other property of Company (provided that nothing in these Terms will restrain a California resident’s right (if any) under applicable law to seek public injunctive relief in accordance with this dispute-resolution provision). The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or (b) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
  3. GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE. To the extent any claim, dispute or controversy regarding Company or our Sites isn’t arbitrable under applicable laws or otherwise: you and Company both agree that any claim or dispute regarding Company will be resolved exclusively in a Texas court governed by the laws of the State of Texas, without respect to its conflict of laws principles and without resort to any form of class action. If you are not a consumer in the EEA, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with this agreement are the state or federal courts located in Dallas, Texas and our dispute will be determined under Texas law. If you’re a consumer in the EEA, the Arbitration Agreement does not apply to you.
  4. UPDATES. Company reserves the right to modify or add to these Terms at any time without prior notice (“Updated Terms“). You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Sites so that they are accessible via a link on the homepage or otherwise, and that your use of a Site after we have posted the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms before using a Site. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of a Site from that point forward.
  5. MISCELLANEOUS. The failure of Company to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit Company’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by Company of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of Company. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. Company may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. Terms may not be assigned by you without Company’s prior written consent. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. If a court, arbitrator, or other adjudicative body should determine that any provisions of these Terms is overbroad, unfair or unreasonable, such provision shall be given effect to the maximum extent possible by narrowing or enforcing in part that aspect of the provision found overbroad or unreasonable. The Section titles are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against Company by virtue of Company having drafted them. No amendment to or modification of these Terms, or action, or delay, will be binding unless in writing and signed by Company. Provisions of these Terms that would logically survive termination shall survive the termination of these Terms for any reason (including without limitation, Sections 18 (“No Warranty”), Section 19 (“Limitation of Liability”) and Section 21 (“Binding Arbitration”).
