14. Limitations of Liability. Please read this section carefully as it sets out the limits of our liability to you in relation to your use of the Website.
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, WHETHER IN TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, SHALL WE, OUR AFFILIATES, OR ANY OF OUR OR THEIR EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, VENDORS OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY, INCLUDING DEATH, IMPRISONMENT, DETENTION, DEPORTATION, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES OR DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER OR DEVICE FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, EVEN IF A REPRESENTATIVE OF OURS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

We are not responsible for any problems or technical malfunction of any telephone or cellular phone network, computer online systems, servers or providers, computer equipment, software, failure of any e-mail due to technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or on the Website, including any injury or damage to user’s or to any person’s mobile device or computer related to or resulting from participation or use of the Website.
You acknowledge that we have made the Website available to you in reliance upon these Terms and Conditions and in particular the Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of our liability will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law. In no event shall our total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law) exceed the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00). The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails its essential purpose.
15. Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless including our officers, directors, employees, agents, subcontractors, licensors and suppliers, any of our affiliated companies or organizations, and any successors, assigns or licensees, from and against any claims, actions or demands, damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, settlements, costs or expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) arising directly or indirectly from or relating to a) the breach of these Terms and Conditions by you or anyone using your computer, mobile device, password or login information; (b) any claim, loss or damage experienced from your use or attempted use of (or inability to use) the Website; (c) any information entered into the Website by you or anyone using your computer, mobile device, password or login information in connection with the Website; (d) your violation of any law or regulation; or (e) any other matter for which you are responsible under these Terms and Conditions or under law. You agree that your use of the Website shall be in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and guidelines.
16. Governing Law. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed in all respects under the laws of the State of California, exclusive of its choice of law or conflict of laws provisions. In any claim or action by you directly or indirectly arising under these Terms and Conditions or related to the Website, you irrevocably agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Los Angeles, California. You waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to any of these courts that may have jurisdiction.
17. Arbitration. This section is deemed to be a written agreement to arbitrate pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, and we and you intend that this section satisfies the writing requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. We believe that arbitration is a faster, more convenient and less expensive way to resolve any disputes or disagreements that you may have with us. Therefore, pursuant to these Terms and Conditions, if you have any dispute or disagreement with us regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the Website, (ii) any data or information you may enter into the Website or that we may gather in connection with such use or interaction, you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court, or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the Website, you agree to binding arbitration as provided below.
We will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes, or disagreements that you may have with us. If those efforts fail, by using our Website, you agree that any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against us, and any claim that we may have against you, arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with these Terms and Conditions or our Privacy Notice shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration (“Arbitration”) administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”) and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the “Applicable Rules”). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is no longer in existence, the Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (the “AAA”) instead, and conducted in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at that time (which shall be the “Applicable Rules” in such circumstances). If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness for Consumer Arbitrations in effect which would be applicable to the matter in dispute, we agree to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this section, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the website of subpart (e) or (i) below. Furthermore, this section shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. You further agree that:
(a) Single Arbitrator. The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and us (the “Arbitrator”);
(b) Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement. The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms and Conditions and/or these arbitration provisions, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms and Conditions is void or voidable;
(c) Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and us; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
(d) Governing Law. The Arbitrator (i) shall apply internal laws of the State of California consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) shall entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with California or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) shall have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief;
(e) No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and/or our individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated;
(f) Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets;
(i) Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart (e) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor us shall be entitled to arbitrate a dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.
(j) Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice. We may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after we have given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from your use of or interaction with the Website, or any data or information you may enter into the Website or that we may gather in connection with such use or interaction occurring after the effective date of such notification.
(k) Small Claims Matters are Excluded. No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim you have against us in your local small claims court within the U.S., if your claim is within such court’s jurisdictional limit; provided that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.
18. Miscellaneous. If any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions are held to be not enforceable by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, then such provisions shall be amended, limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms and Conditions shall otherwise remain in full force and effect. No failure or delay by us to exercise any right or remedy provided under these Terms and Conditions or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. You may not assign this Agreement.

All notices to you relating to these Terms and Conditions shall be posted prior to installation of or during use of the Website or sent to you at the e-mail or physical address, if any, that you provide to us. All notices to us relating to these Terms and Conditions shall be in writing and sent to the following:
