THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SECTION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER BASIS, AND EVEN IF COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. ALL LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING IN THIS SECTION AND ELSEWHERE IN THIS AGREEMENT) ARE MADE FOR THE BENEFIT OF BOTH COMPANY AND THE AFFILIATED ENTITIES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

This Agreement is effective upon your acceptance of this Agreement and continues in force and effect until terminated. Company may terminate or suspend your use of the Service at any time and without prior notice, for any or no reason, including if Company believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement. Upon any such termination or suspension, your right to use the Service will immediately cease, and Company may, without liability to you or any third party, immediately deactivate or delete your user name, password, and account, and all associated materials, without any obligation to provide any further access to such materials; however, Company will provide access to you to any of your health records in Company’s possession as a result of this Agreement as may be required under applicable legal, ethical, and professional obligations. Section 1 (Our Services) through through 9 (Third Party Materials), and 11 (Indemnity) through 18 (Miscellaneous) shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.
15. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
15.1. Governing Law
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that any federal or state court in California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Read this section carefully because it requires each of us to arbitrate our disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Company. For any dispute with Company, you agree to first contact us at [INSERT CONTACT] and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT COMPANY HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO RESOLVE A DISPUTE IT HAS WITH YOU AFTER SIXTY (60) DAYS, WE EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (EXCLUDING ANY CLAIMS FOR INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF AS PROVIDED BELOW) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR THE BREACH OR ALLEGED BREACH THEREOF (COLLECTIVELY, “CLAIMS”), BY BINDING ARBITRATION BY JAMS. ADDITIONALLY, WE EACH AGREE TO USE THE OPTIONAL EXPEDITED ARBITRATION PROCEDURES THEN IN EFFECT FOR JAMS, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW. CONTACT INFORMATION AND A DESCRIPTION OF JAMS’ ARBITRATION PROCESS MAY BE FOUND AT WWW.JAMSADR.COM. IF THERE IS A DISPUTE ABOUT THE ARBITRABILITY OF ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (INCLUDING ABOUT THE FORMATION, SCOPE, APPLICABILITY, INTERPRETATION, VALIDITY, AND ENFORCEABILITY OF SECTION 15.2 OF THIS AGREEMENT), WE AGREE THAT THIS THRESHOLD DISPUTE SHALL BE RESOLVED BY THE ARBITRATOR, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED BELOW. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED IN CALIFORNIA, UNLESS YOU AND COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE. JAMS MAY REQUIRE YOU TO PAY A FEE FOR THE INITIATION OF YOUR CASE, UNLESS YOU APPLY FOR AND SUCCESSFULLY OBTAIN A FEE WAIVER FROM JAMS. THE AWARD RENDERED BY THE ARBITRATOR MAY INCLUDE YOUR COSTS OF ARBITRATION, YOUR REASONABLE ATTORNEY’S FEES, AND YOUR REASONABLE COSTS FOR EXPERT AND OTHER WITNESSES. YOU MAY SUE IN A SMALL CLAIMS COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION WITHOUT FIRST ENGAGING IN ARBITRATION, BUT THIS DOES NOT RELIEVE YOU OF YOUR OBLIGATION TO ENGAGE IN THE ARBITRATION PROCESS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION. ANY JUDGMENT ON THE AWARD RENDERED BY THE ARBITRATOR MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. THIS SECTION SHALL NOT BE INTERPRETED AS PREVENTING COMPANY OR USER FROM SEEKING INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FROM THE COURTS AS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ACTUAL OR THREATENED INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION, OR VIOLATION OF OUR OR YOURS DATA SECURITY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, OR OTHER PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. YOU AGREE THAT THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WILL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH COMPANY.
15.3. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL, OR OTHER PURPOSES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT PERMIT WAIVER OF PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CLAIMS, BUT PERMITS THEM TO BE ARBITRATED, THEN SUCH CLAIMS SHALL BE RESOLVED IN ARBITRATION. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL BE EMPOWERED TO GRANT WHATEVER RELIEF WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN A COURT UNDER LAW OR IN EQUITY. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDINGS OF ANY KIND.
15.4. Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out
Notwithstanding the above, you or Company may choose to pursue a Claim in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Claim qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Provision by mailing written notification to [INSERT]. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Company through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Provision will have no adverse effect on your relationship with Company. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Claim in arbitration or small claims court.
