Information provided by you
Limitation of damages
All information provided on the Site (the “Information”) is subject to change without notice. While efforts have been made to make the Site helpful and accurate, we do not warrant the accuracy of the Information. We do not provide a warranty regarding virus–free use of the Site or use of any Content downloaded from the Site.
THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY US WITH RESPECT TO THE SITE AND ALL CONTENT ON THE SITE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND ANY WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICES SUPPLIED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE OF A REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE QUALITY. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT FUNCTIONS CONTAINED ON THE SITE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR–FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SITE, CONTENT OR THE SERVER ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE, BY YOUR USE OF THE SITE, THAT SUCH USE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THAT WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONTINGENT, CONSEQUENTIAL, RELIANCE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOSSES OR EXPENSES ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE, WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS BY THIRD PARTIES TO YOUR TRANSMISSION FACILITIES OR PREMISE EQUIPMENT OR FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION, THEFT, LOSS OR DESTRUCTION OF YOUR NETWORK, SYSTEMS, APPLICATIONS, DATA FILES, PROGRAMS, PROCEDURES, OR INFORMATION THROUGH ACCIDENT, FRAUDULENT MEANS OR DEVICES, OR ANY OTHER METHOD.
THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, OR TORT, AND SHALL SURVIVE FAILURE OF AN EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, successors and assigns, and our and their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees and agents, harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising from or relating to your use of the Site, except to the extent that we fail to perform our express obligations to you under this Agreement.
Any claim, dispute, or controversy between you and us or any holder of this Agreement, or the employees, agents or assigns of any of them, arising from or relating to the Website or this Agreement (or any prior agreement between you and us with respect to the Website), or the relationships which result from this Agreement (“Claim”), including but not limited to any tort or statutory Claim, and any Claim seeking monetary, equitable, or other relief will be, upon the election of any party to the dispute, resolved by neutral binding arbitration administered by the National Arbitration Forum (“NAF”), under the Code of Procedure (“Code”) of the NAF in effect at the time the Claim is filed. Claims include past, present, and future Claims. Any arbitration hearing at which the parties appear personally will take place at a location within the United States federal judicial district in which you reside. Rules and forms of the NAF may be obtained and all claims will be filed at any NAF office, www.adrforum.com or by calling 1–800–474–2371.
You and we will each be responsible for paying our own fees, costs and expenses and the arbitration fees as designated by the Code. However, for a Claim of $15,000 or less, if you so request in writing, we will pay your arbitration fees due to the NAF; for a larger Claim, we will consider any request to pay your fees due to the NAF. The arbitrator’s power to conduct any arbitration proceeding under this arbitration agreement will be limited as follows: any arbitration proceeding under this Agreement will not be consolidated or joined with any arbitration proceeding under any other agreement, or involving any other property or premises, and will not proceed as a class action or any other proceeding involving multiple claimants. Only a court, not an arbitrator, may determine the validity of the preceding sentence. We will not elect to arbitrate an individual Claim brought in a small claims (or equivalent) court, unless that Claim is transferred, removed, or appealed to a different court. The arbitrator will apply all applicable substantive law.
The decision of the arbitrator will be a final and binding resolution of the Claim. This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1–16. Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT OR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE, AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER PROCEEDING INVOLVING MULTIPLE CLAIMANTS, BUT THEY CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY DISPUTES DECIDED THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
If you are enrolled in a Program, and the agreement we have with you for the Program has an arbitration provision, this arbitration provision will not apply to the extent that the arbitration provision in the other agreement applies.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify, add or remove (“Change”) any portion of this Agreement in whole or in part, at any time. Changes in this Agreement will be effective when posted on the Site. Your continued use of the Site after any Changes to this Agreement are posted will be considered acceptance of those Changes. We may terminate, change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Site, including the availability of any features of the Site, at any time. We also may impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to part or all of the Site without notice or liability.
Enforcement and choice of law
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Illinois, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. For all disputes arising from or related to the Site, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Illinois. If any part of this Agreement is unenforceable, such part will not make any other part of this Agreement unenforceable, except that if the part of the Arbitration provisions prohibiting arbitration involving a class action or multiple claimants is unenforceable, all of the Arbitration provisions in this Agreement shall be unenforceable.
