In general, you are not obligated to register to access the Site. However, certain sections and features of our Site are available only to users who have registered for an account (“Registered Users”). We may reject, and you may not use, a user ID (or e-mail address) for any reason in our sole discretion. For example, we may reject a user ID (or e-mail address) that is already being used by someone else, that may be construed as impersonating another person, that belongs to another person, that violates the intellectual property or other rights of any person, or that is offensive. You may only have one active Registered User account on our Site at any given time, and you may not allow other people to use your account credentials to access our Site.
If you are a Registered User, we expect you to accurately maintain and update any information about yourself that that is incorrect by emailing or calling us. You agree that you are responsible for all activities that occur under your Registered User account, and for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and restricting access to your computer so others may not access our Site in violation of this Agreement. In addition, you agree to exit from your Registered User account at the end of each session if you are using a device that is shared with other people.
You agree to notify us of any unauthorized use of your Registered User username, log-in ID, password or any other breach of security that you become aware of involving or relating to our Site by contacting us as soon as possible. We reserve the right to take all actions we deem necessary or reasonable to maintain the security of our Site and your account, including without limitation, terminating your account, changing your password or requesting information to authorize transactions on your account. WE EXPLICITLY DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS SECTION.
This Agreement applies exclusively to your access to, and use of, the Site and does not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us, including agreements relating to your investment.
The Site and this Agreement are in effect until terminated by us. In addition to any right or remedy that may be available to us under applicable law, we may suspend, limit, or terminate all or a portion of your access to our Site or any of its features at any time with or without notice and with or without cause, including without limitation, if we believe that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement concerning protection of intellectual property rights, authorized use, disclaimers, limitations of liability, indemnity, and disputes, as well as any other provisions that by their nature should survive, shall survive any such termination.
You agree that if your use of our Site is terminated pursuant to this Agreement, you will not attempt to use the Site under any name, real or assumed, and further agree that if you violate this restriction after being terminated, you indemnify and hold us harmless from all liability that we may incur therefore. We fully reserve the right to prosecute all violators of the law.
Limitation of Liability
WE AND OUR AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, DIVISIONS AND RELATED COMPANIES AS WELL AS OUR AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “RELEASEES”) WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE OUR SITE, THE SITE’S CONTENT OR EXTERNAL LINKS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES CAUSED BY OR RELATED TO ERRORS, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DEFECTS, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, OR ANY COMPUTER VIRUS OR FAILURE. RELEASEES WILL ALSO NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY LOSS OF DATA OR PROFITS, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. RELEASEES ALSO SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY ACTS, OMISSIONS OR CONDUCT OF ANY USER OR OTHER THIRD PARTY. REGARDLESS OF THE PREVIOUS SENTENCES, IF WE ARE FOUND TO BE LIABLE, OUR LIABILITY TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY IS LIMITED TO YOUR ACTUAL DAMAGES BUT IN ANY EVENT NO MORE THAN $1,000.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us and the Releasees and all of our directors, officers, employees, agents and contractors harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees) or other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from (i) your breach of any provision of this Agreement; and (ii) your activities in connection with our Site.
Consent to Communication
Each Site is controlled, operated and administered by us (or our licensees or agents) from our offices within the United States of America and is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE SITE OR ANY PART THEREOF IS APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE IN ANY PARTICULAR JURISDICTION OTHER THAN THE UNITED STATES. Those who choose to access our Site do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local statutes, orders, regulations, rules, and other laws. We may limit our Site’s availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time and in our sole discretion.
Disputes, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to us, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (“Notice”). The Notice to us must be addressed to: 6106 MacArthur Blvd, Suite 104 Bethesda, MD 20816. If we initiate arbitration, we will send a written Notice to an email address you have previously provided to us, if available. A Notice, whether sent by you or by us, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration.
YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and we both agree that you or we may sue in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. In the event a court or arbitrator having jurisdiction finds any portion of this Agreement unenforceable, that portion shall not be effective, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain effective. No waiver, express or implied, by either party of any breach of or default under this Agreement will constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or default or be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
If you have questions about this Agreement, or if you have technical questions about the operation of our Site, please contact us by writing us at 6106 MacArthur Blvd, Suite 104, Bethesda, MD 20816 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
