TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE FOUNDATION WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, INCLUDING DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF CHANGES TO OR TERMINATION OF THE WEBSITE. THIS IS A COMPREHENSIVE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY THAT APPLIES TO ALL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOSS OF DATA, INCOME OR PROFIT, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY AND CLAIMS OF THIRD PARTIES. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE LIMITATIONS ON THE FOUNDATION'S LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN SHALL APPLY WHETHER FOR BREACH OR REPUDIATION OF CONTRACT, OR WHETHER IN TORT, CIVIL LIABILITY BY WAY OF NEGLIGENCE, GROSS NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU WILLINGLY AGREE (OR, IF YOU ARE A MINOR, YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN WILLINGLY AGREES) THAT YOU HAVE RELINQUISHED YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK THESE DAMAGES FROM THE FOUNDATION AND THAT THIS IS A REASONABLE ALLOCATION OF RISK. THIS PROVISION DOES NOT APPLY TO NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS OR RESIDENTS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE SUCH LIMITATION IS PROHIBITED BY LAW.
Any controversy, claim or dispute of whatever nature arising between a user of the Website, on the one hand, and the Foundation and/or the Related Parties (as defined below), on the other, including but not limited to those arising out of or relating to the Policy or any other relationship of a user of the Website and the Foundation and/or the Related Parties (for purposes of this Section each is a “party”), whether such claim is based on rights, privileges or interests recognized by or based upon statute, contract, tort, common law, or otherwise (“Dispute”), shall be settled through negotiation, mediation or arbitration, as provided below.
If a Dispute arises, the parties shall first attempt in good faith to resolve it promptly by negotiation. Any of the parties involved in the Dispute may initiate negotiation by providing notice (the “Dispute Notice”) to each involved party setting forth the subject of the Dispute and the relief sought by the party providing the Dispute Notice, and designating a representative who has full authority to negotiate and settle the Dispute. Within ten (10) business days after the Dispute Notice is provided, each recipient shall respond to all other known recipients of the Dispute Notice with notice of the recipient’s position on and recommended solution to the Dispute, and designating a representative who has full authority to negotiate and settle the Dispute. Within twenty (20) business days after the Dispute Notice is provided, the representatives designated by the parties shall confer either in person at a mutually acceptable time and place or by telephone, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary to attempt to resolve the Dispute.
At any time twenty (20) business days or more after the Dispute Notice is provided, but prior to the initiation of arbitration, regardless of whether negotiations are continuing, any party may submit the Dispute to JAMS (Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services - http://www.jamsadr.com) for mediation by providing notice of such request to all other concerned parties and providing such notice and a copy of all relevant Dispute Notices and notices responding to JAMS. In such case, the parties shall cooperate with JAMS and with one another in selecting a mediator from the JAMS panel of neutrals and in promptly scheduling the mediation proceedings, and shall participate in good faith in the mediation either in person at a mutually acceptable time and place or by telephone, in accordance with the then-prevailing JAMS’s mediation procedures and this Section, which shall control.
Any Dispute not resolved in writing by negotiation or mediation shall be subject to and shall be settled exclusively by final binding arbitration before a single arbitrator in Phoenix, Arizona, in accordance with the then-prevailing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). No party may commence arbitration with respect to any Dispute unless that party has pursued negotiation and, if requested, mediation, provided, however, that no party shall be obligated to continue to participate in negotiation or mediation if the parties have not resolved the Dispute in writing within sixty (60) business days after the Dispute Notice was provided to any party or such longer period as may be agreed by the parties in writing. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediator shall be disqualified from serving as arbitrator in the case. Notwithstanding any contrary rules promulgated by the AAA, the following shall apply to all Arbitration actions:
The arbitrator shall not have the power to alter, modify, amend, add to or subtract from any provision of the Policy, or to rule upon or grant any extension, renewal or continuance of the Policy. Moreover, the arbitrator shall not have the power to award special, incidental, indirect, punitive, exemplary, or consequential damages of any kind or nature, however caused.
All communications, whether verbal, written or electronic, in any negotiation, mediation or arbitration action shall be treated as confidential and those made in the course of negotiation or mediation, including any offer, promise or other statement, whether made by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts, or attorneys, or by the mediator or any JAMS employee, shall also be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence and shall be inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any arbitration or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in negotiation or mediation.
The costs of negotiation, mediation, and arbitration, including fees and expenses of any mediator, arbitrator, JAMS, the American Arbitration Association, or other persons independent of all parties acting with the consent of the parties to facilitate settlement, shall be shared in equal measure by the user of the Website, on the one hand, and the Foundation and any Related Parties involved, on the other. The parties shall bear their own legal fees and expenses of negotiation, mediation and arbitration.
Although the Policy is made and entered into between a user of the Website and the Foundation, the Company and the Foundation’s affiliates, owners, members, managers and employees (“Related Parties”) are intended third-party beneficiaries of the Policy, including this agreement to negotiate, mediate and arbitrate. The parties acknowledge that nothing in these policies is intended to create any involvement by, responsibility of, or liability of the Related Parties with respect to any dealings between an user of the Website and the Foundation, and the parties further acknowledge that no provision of the Policy shall be argued by any party to constitute any waiver by the Related Parties of any defense which the Related Parties may otherwise have concerning whether they can properly be made a party to any dispute between an user of the Website and the Foundation.
Any party may seek specific performance of this Section, and any party may seek to compel each other party to comply with the provisions of this Section by petition to a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Arizona. The pendency of a mediation shall not preclude a party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of the arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction in the State of Arizona, and the parties agree not to defend against any application for provisional relief on the ground that a mediation is pending. The prevailing party in any proceeding enforcing the provisions of this Section shall be entitled to recover from the other party the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by the petitioning party in obtaining the requested relief. If any portion of this Section is held to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain in full force and effect.
Nothing in this Section shall preclude any party from seeking interim or provisional relief concerning the Dispute, including a temporary restraining order, a temporary or preliminary injunction, or an order of attachment, either prior to or during negotiation, mediation or arbitration.
By entering into this Policy, you understand and agree that you will waive your right to have any dispute or claim brought, heard or arbitrated as a class action, collective action or representative action (the “Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this Policy or the rules of the American Arbitration Association, any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable must be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and may not be determined by an arbitrator.
Should you bring a claim against the Foundation for any alleged act or omission of the Foundation relating to or arising from this Policy, such action must be brought within one year from the date of the alleged conduct giving rise to the cause of action. Failure to bring such action within such time shall bar all claims against the Foundation for such act or omission. You hereby relinquish and waive all claims permissible by any other applicable statutes of limitation.
Jurisdiction and venue of any matter not subject to arbitration shall lie exclusively in Maricopa County, State of Arizona. The Federal Arbitration Act shall govern all matters relating to arbitration. The laws of the State of Arizona shall govern all other matters relating to or arising from the Policy or any element of your relationship with the Foundation.
If any provision of this Policy in its current form or as may be amended is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, only the invalid portion of the provision shall be severed and the remaining terms of the Policy shall remain in full force and effect. The severed provision, or portion thereof, shall be reformed to reflect the purpose of the provision as closely as possible.
The failure of the Foundation to partially or fully exercise any rights or remedies that may be available to it, or the waiver of the Foundation of any breach of this Policy by you shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such rights by the Foundation and shall not be deemed a waiver by the Foundation of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other provision of the Policy. Our rights and remedies under the Policy and any other applicable agreement between you and the Foundation shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit our ability to exercise a different or additional right or remedy.
c. Release and Indemnification
You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend the Foundation, its parent, subsidiaries, divisions, and affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and affiliates from any and all claims, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses of defense, including attorneys’ fees, in any way arising from or related to your participation as a user of the Website, your violation of this Policy, any defamatory or infringing content posted by you, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
