TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, WE, ON BEHALF OF OURSELVES, OUR LICENSORS, ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SERVICES, EACH'S EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, AND CONTRACTORS, EXCLUDE AND DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ANY LOSSES AND EXPENSES OF WHATEVER NATURE AND HOWSOEVER ARISING INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS CAUSED BY A VIRUS, LOSS OF INCOME OR PROFIT, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY, CLAIMS OF THIRD PARTIES, OR OTHER LOSSES OF ANY KIND OR CHARACTER, EVEN IF WE OR ANY OF OUR LICENSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR ANY WEBSITE WITH WHICH IT IS LINKED.

THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER BASIS. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
The “Disclaimer” and “Limitation of Liability” provisions of this Agreement are for the benefit of The Company as defined herein, and each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against you on its own behalf.
Please read this section carefully. It affects rights that you may otherwise have. It provides for resolution of most disputes through arbitration instead of court trials and class actions. Arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. This arbitration clause shall survive termination of this Agreement. This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of our relationship. Any dispute or claim made by you against us (or against any of our subsidiary, parent or affiliate companies) arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your use of the Services(whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory) will be resolved by binding arbitration except that (a) you may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court, or (b) you or we may choose to pursue claims in court if the claims relate solely to the collection of any debts you owe to us. However, even for those claims that may be taken to court, you and we both waive any claims for punitive damages and any right to pursue claims on a class or representative basis.
You must first present any claim or dispute to us by contacting us in writing or by electronic mail, at the information provided in the “Contacting Us” section herein, to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute cannot be resolved within sixty (60) days. The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules and information about arbitration and fees are available upon request from the AAA (call 1-800-778-7879) or online at adr.org. You and we agree that this Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration will take place in either Baltimore, Maryland or Kansas City, Missouri depending on your location and will be conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what this agreement provides, order consolidation or arbitration on a class wide or representative basis, or award punitive damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages, except that the arbitrator may award on an individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. In any arbitration applying the AAA Rules applicable to large/complex cases, the arbitrators must also apply the Federal Rules of Evidence, and the losing party may have the award reviewed in accordance with the review procedures set forth in the AAA Rules. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, than the remainder shall still be given full force and effect. All administrative fees and expenses of any arbitration will be divided equally between you and us, unless otherwise prohibited by law. In all arbitrations, each party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration.
WAIVER OF PUNITIVE DAMAGE CLAIMS AND CLASS ACTIONS BY THIS AGREEMENT, BOTH YOU AND WE ARE WAIVING CERTAIN RIGHTS TO LITIGATE DISPUTES IN COURT. IF FOR ANY REASON THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE IS DEEMED INAPPLICABLE OR INVALID, YOU AND WE BOTH WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, ANY CLAIMS TO RECOVER PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES AND ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIMS ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
A. Votes: You may have the opportunity to vote in connection with certain events by using or accessing the Services. By casting a vote, you signify your agreement to the voting terms set forth in this Section. By casting your vote, you hereby grant The Company and its licensees a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive right and license to use, reproduce, publicly display, publicly perform, modify, sublicense, and distribute the content you provide, in connection with the Services or the products promoted via the Services, and incorporate it in other works, in whole or in part, in any manner.
The Company is not responsible for votes not received due to lost, failed, delayed or interrupted connections, including Internet/Webserver/network/phone-line connections or miscommunications, or other electronic malfunctions, computer or telephone hardware or software failures, malfunctions, or garbled or jumbled transmissions.

B. Changes to the Terms: The Company may modify these Terms from time to time.

We will notify you of material changes to this policy by posting a notice at the Services or by e-mailing you if The Company has an address for you. You understand and agree that if you use or access the Services after the date on which the changes take effect, you are bound by any such revisions and we will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Terms.

You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any such modification, editing, deletion, suspension or discontinuance of the Services.
E. Transfer & Assignment: This Agreement and the rights and obligations hereunder may not be assigned, in whole or in part, by you without the written consent of The Company. The Company may assign this Agreement upon ten (10) days prior written notice to you provided via e-mail (if available) and by posting notice to the Services. This Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the successors, representatives and permitted assigns of the parties hereto.
F. No Independent Contractor or Joint Venture: The parties shall be independent contractors under this Agreement, and nothing herein will constitute either party as the employer, employee, agent or representative of the other party, or both parties as joint venturers or partners for any purpose.
G. Severability And Non-Waiver: Failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision, and a waiver by us of any right under these Terms on any occasion will not in any way constitute a waiver of such right or any other right on any other occasion. In the event any provision of these Terms is determined to be invalid, such invalidity will not affect the validity of the remaining portions of these Terms, and the parties will substitute for the invalid provision a provision which most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the invalid provision. These Terms will apply in lieu of and notwithstanding any specific legend or statement associated with any particular document or information exchanged.
H.
