IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO EVALUATE THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, OR USEFULNESS OF THIS SITE. IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY OF THE VIRB PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SITE OR THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR NEGLIGENCE, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR OTHER DAMAGES, IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS THE VIRB PARTIES’ LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THIS SITE IS TO STOP USING THIS SITE.
You agree to make Virb and its shareholders, partners, members, directors, officers, co-branders, subsidiaries, parents, employees, and agents, whole for any and all claims, losses, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from your use of the Site or any violation of this Agreement.
Virb controls and operates this Site from our headquarters in the United States of America and the entirety of this Site may not be appropriate or available for use in other locations. If you use this Site outside the United States of America, you are solely responsible for following applicable local laws. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you expressly agree to comply with such restrictions and not to export or re-export any of the Content to countries or persons prohibited under the export control laws of the United States. You are prohibited from any use of the Site that would constitute an illegal offense, give rise to liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation.
Unless expressly provided otherwise, if you send or transmit any communications, comments, questions, suggestions, or related materials to us, whether by letter, email, telephone, or otherwise (collectively “Feedback”), suggesting or recommending changes to the Site or the Content, including new features or functionality relating to the Site or the Content, all such Feedback is and will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. You assign all right, title, and interest in, and Virb is free to use, without any attribution or compensation to you, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property and proprietary rights contained in the Feedback, whether or not patentable, for any purpose whatsoever. Where the above-assignment is prohibited by law, you grant us an exclusive, transferable, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up license (including the right to sublicense) to use and exploit all Feedback as we may determine in our sole discretion. You understand and agree that we are not obligated to use, display, reproduce, or distribute any ideas, know-how, concepts, or techniques contained in the Feedback, and you have no right to compel our use, display, reproduction, or distribution.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, except with regard to its conflicts or choice of law rules. You shall comply with all laws, rules and regulations which are now or hereinafter promulgated by any government authority or agency which govern or apply to the operation and use of the Site.
If any dispute arises out of or in connection with this Agreement or your use of any Content or this Site or your access to or links to this Site, you must first provide Virb an opportunity to resolve the dispute by providing notification by emailing email@example.com (1) your full name; (2) your address; (3) your email; (4) your telephone number; (5) a description of your claim; and (6) a description of the specific relief you are seeking. If Virb is unable to resolve the dispute within forty-five (45) days after receiving your written notification, then you and Virb will attempt to resolve that dispute confidentially, initially through Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”). All disputes must be brought within the applicable statute of limitations established by law.
Should the parties be unable to agree on a mutually acceptable use of ADR, the parties hereby agree that all such disputes will be subject to mandatory binding arbitration under the JAMS rules and procedures, by a single JAMS arbitrator selected in accordance with JAMS selection procedures. The arbitrator will be selected by mutual agreement of the parties. If the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, then the complaining party will notify JAMS and request selection of an arbitrator in accordance with JAMS rules and procedures. Any such arbitration shall be held in a neutral or mutually agreed upon location in the United States of America, to be mutually agreed upon by the parties or, absent agreement, decided by the arbitrator, and shall be confidential. All parties hereby agree to waive rights to a trial by a jury or a judge.
The arbitrator will have authority to award equitable relief, damages, costs, and fees as a court would have for a particular claim asserted, and any action of the arbitrator in contravention of this limitation may be the subject of court appeal by the aggrieved party. All other aspects of the arbitrator’s ruling will be final, conclusive, and binding, and the parties agree that they will abide by and perform any award rendered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned opinion, in writing, and therein state the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law on which the decision and award, if any, is based. The parties agree that the arbitration proceedings themselves will be considered confidential, and no outcome or award will be published by the arbitrator or parties, whether directly or through their agents. Each party shall bear its own respective attorneys’ fee and all other costs, unless otherwise required or allowed by law and awarded by the arbitrator. However, if any party prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party in accordance with applicable law. Judgment on the award of the arbitrator may be entered in any court, which would otherwise have had jurisdiction over the matter.
