Section 12 - Disclaimer and Limitations on Our Liability

EXCEPT WHERE OTHERWISE INAPPLICABLE OR PROHIBITED BY LAW, INCLUDING THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, YOU USE THE SITE AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SITE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, OUR COMPANY AND ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, AND LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING THOSE RELATED TO MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AS WELL AS THOSE ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ANY MATERIAL OR INFORMATION DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SITE IS DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THAT YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE ARISING FROM DOING SO.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL OUR COMPANY, ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, AND LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING FOR THE INDIRECT LOSS OF PROFIT, REVENUE, OR DATA) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SITE OR PRODUCTS PURCHASED OVER THE SITE, HOWEVER CAUSED, AND UNDER WHATEVER CAUSE OF ACTION OR THEORY OF LIABILITY BROUGHT (INCLUDING UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHER TORT THEORY OF LIABILITY) EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

IF, NOTWITHSTANDING THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SET FORTH ABOVE, WE ARE FOUND LIABLE UNDER ANY THEORY, OUR MAXIMUM LIABILITY TO YOU AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF USD $500 OR THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF MONEY YOU PAID TO US OVER A 1-YEAR PERIOD.

Some jurisdictions, including the State of New Jersey, do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit our liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of our liability will be the minimum permitted under such law.

Section 13 - Indemnification

To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless TwinkleInTime and its officers, employees, directors, shareholders, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, and licensors from and against any and all claims, costs, proceedings, demands, losses, damages, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees and legal costs) of any kind or nature, arising from or relating to, any actual or alleged breach of these Terms by you or anyone using your account, or any actual or alleged breach of any representation by you. If we assume the defense of such a matter, you will reasonably cooperate with us in such defense.

Section 14 – MANDATORY ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS.  EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT YOU MAY HAVE MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION.  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR JUDGE. YOU ALSO AGREE THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF (LEAD OR OTHERWISE) OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.  YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDTE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.

All disputes, controversies, or claims between you and TwinkleInTime, its officers, directors, or employees arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way to these Terms, the Privacy Policy, the Site, your purchase, our relationship, or the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding confidential arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS.  This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, sets forth the terms and conditions of our agreement to final and binding confidential arbitration, and shall be governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended. The arbitration shall be held in San Diego, California and, if the controversy involves less than $500, the arbitration may be conducted by telephone or by written submission. The arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the these Terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into in connection with the Site. The arbitrator shall apply California law, exclusive of its conflicts of law rules, consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law.  The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to determine whether any dispute is arbitrable. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to determine whether this arbitration agreement can be enforced against a non-signatory to this agreement and whether any non-signatory to this agreement can enforce this provision against you or us. Claims shall be arbitrated on an individual, non-class, and non-representative basis. You and the Company hereby expressly agree not to bring or join any class claims or representative claims against the other. The arbitrator shall not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or the Company, its officers, directors, or employees. In the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against the Company, its officers, directors, or employees exceed $125.00 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, TwinkleInTime agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, TwinkleInTime will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.  For more information on JAMS and/or the rules of JAMS, visit their website at www.jamsadr.com.

This provision survives termination of your account or relationship with us, bankruptcy, assignment, or transfer.  If the class action waiver above is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow the arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply.  If a portion of this arbitration provision (other than the class action waiver) is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.

As an exception to this arbitration provision, we may file a lawsuit against you for injunctive relief in order to prevent or stop you from infringing any of our intellectual property rights.  Such a suit shall be filed in the state or federal courts located in San Diego, California, and you expressly consent to and forever waive any challenge to the jurisdiction and venue of those courts.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU PURCHASE A PRODUCT OR FIRST ACCESS AND USE THE SITE (WHICHEVER COMES FIRST) BY WRITING TO US AT [email protected].  FOR YOUR OPT-OUT TO BE EFFECTIVE, YOU MUST SUBMIT A SIGNED WRITTEN NOTICE IDENTIFYING THE DATE OF PURCHASE ALONG WITH YOUR ORDER NUMBER, OR THE DATE OF FIRST ACCESS AND USE OF THE WEBSITE, WITHIN THE THIRTY (30) DAY PERIOD.  IF MORE THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS HAVE PASSED, YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO OPT OUT OF THIS PROVISION AND YOU MUST PURSUE YOUR CLAIM THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.

Section 16 - Other Provisions

Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond our reasonable control.

The laws of California, U.S.A., excluding California’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Site, or our relationship.

If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the enforceability of any other provisions.

The failure by us to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not prevent us from enforcing such right or provision in the future.

We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms, including in connection with a merger, acquisition, sale of assets or equity, or by operation of law.

From time to time, we may change these Terms. If we change these Terms, we will give you notice by posting the revised Terms on the Site. Those changes will go into effect on the Revision Date shown in the revised Terms. By continuing to use the Site, you are agreeing to the revised Terms.
