EACH SITE IS PROVIDED WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT. SUNTUITY, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS LICENSORS DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE CONTENT IS COMPLETE, ACCURATE, RELIABLE OR CORRECT; THAT THE SITES WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME OR LOCATION; THAT ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR THAT THE CONTENT IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM CONTENT ON THE SITE OR FROM OTHER USERS WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN. IN ADDITION, ANY MATERIAL DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH YOUR USE OF THE SITES IS DONE AT YOUR OWN DIRECTION AND RISK AND YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF ANY SUCH MATERIAL.

Limitation of Liability. Under no circumstances shall Suntuity, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, or licensors be liable for any consequential damages (including, without limitation, indirect, punitive, incidental or special damages, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if Suntuity has been advised of the possibility of such damages) including, without limitation, any that result from: (i) the use of, or inability to use, the Sites; (ii) your reliance on advice, information, or other content on the Sites; (iii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information or services purchased or obtained or transactions entered into through or from the Sites; (iv) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data, including User Content; (v) statements or conduct of any third party on the Sites; or (vi) any other material relating to the Sites. Suntuity, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates and licensors shall only be liable to the extent of actual damages incurred by you, not to exceed the purchase price received by Suntuity for the Service giving rise to the liability. This limitation applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if Suntuity has been advised of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, Suntuity’s liability in such jurisdictions shall be limited to the extent permitted by law.
Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Suntuity (and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents) from and against any third-party claims, actions or demands (including, without limitation, costs, damages and reasonable legal and accounting fees) alleging or resulting from or in connection with your use of the Sites, any User Content posted or submitted by you, your use of the Services or your breach of these Terms. Suntuity shall use reasonable efforts to provide you prompt notice of any such claim, suit, or proceeding and may assist you, at your expense, in defending any such claim, suit or proceeding. Suntuity reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with Suntuity in asserting any available defenses.
International Use. Suntuity is headquartered in the United States and stores and processes User Content in the United States. Users who access any Site from outside the United States are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. Suntuity makes no claims that the Sites or content thereon are appropriate outside of the United States.

Mandatory Arbitration, Waiver of Class Actions. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Scope. This Section 14 is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between Suntuity and Users, including but not limited to, claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory; claims that arose before these Terms; and claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms (“Claims”). The only disputes excluded from this broad prohibition are the litigation of certain intellectual property disputes as provided below.
Pre-Arbitration Procedure. We hope that we can resolve any disputes with you without resorting to arbitration. If you have an issue or a complaint, you agree to contact us at [email address] before taking formal action in accordance with paragraph 16.3. In your contact, please provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information (including your username, if your dispute relates to an Account). Suntuity agrees to use reasonable efforts to address your issue or complaint.
Binding Arbitration. If, after engaging in good faith negotiations, we cannot reach an agreed-upon solution with you within sixty (60) days, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve Claims (except as provided below) subject to these Terms set forth below. You agree that any and all Claims shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules, as applicable, of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), having an address at 220 Davidson Avenue, 1st Floor, Somerset, New Jersey, 08873, or its successor. Information about AAA, including its rules and procedures, can be found at www.adr.org. If AAA, or its successor, is unable to arbitrate a particular Claim, then that Claim shall be resolved by binding arbitration pursuant to the rules and procedures of an equivalent organization as mutually agreed by the parties. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this agreement to arbitrate and the Terms, including but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this agreement or the Terms is unenforceable. All fees charged by AAA, or its successor, shall be paid in accordance with the fee schedule under the Consumer Arbitration Rules, as applicable. All fees charged by any other equivalent organization as mutually agreed by the parties shall be paid in accordance with the rules and procedures of the equivalent organization. Arbitration awards may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The provisions of this paragraph shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq., and shall survive settlement. EXCEPT AS MAY BE PROVIDED IN AAA’S CONSUMER DUE PROCESS PROTOCOL THAT ALLOWS CONSUMERS TO FILE CERTAIN CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL IN COURT, EITHER WITH OR WITHOUT A JURY.
Class Action Waiver. You and Suntuity expressly waive the right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND SUNTUITY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Intellectual Property Exclusion. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, Suntuity may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations, requests for emergent relief, including temporary restraining orders or preliminary injunctions, or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy, or unauthorized use of intellectual property in any state or federal court with jurisdiction or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights in the Site.
This Mandatory Arbitration, Waiver of Class Actions section shall survive any termination of your use of the Sites.
Modifications to Service. Suntuity reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any of the Sites or some or all of the content or Services offered through the Sites, with or without notice. You agree that Suntuity shall not be liable to your or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of any of the Sites or some or all of the Services offered through the Sites.
