Although our Indemnitees may moderate content, conduct and compliance with these terms related to our website, Platforms and our services, they have no authority to make binding commitments, promises or representations to anyone that they or anyone else on behalf of us will “take care” of any alleged problem or complaint, or that they or anyone else on behalf of us will otherwise stop, cure or prevent any problem, content, conduct or purported violation of these terms from occurring or recurring.
WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. YOUR ACCESS TO, USE OF AND RELIANCE ON OUR SERVICES AND CONTENT ACCESSED THROUGH OUR WEBSITE, PLATFORMS OR OUR SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” OR “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS) ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.
LIMITATION ON LIABILITY. WE AND OUR INDEMNITEES SHALL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE FOR ANY ACCESS TO, USE OF OR RELIANCE ON OUR SERVICES OR CONTENT ACCESSED THROUGH OUR WEBSITE, PLATFORMS OR OUR SERVICES BY YOU OR ANYONE ELSE, OR FOR ANY TRANSACTIONS, COMMUNICATIONS, INTERACTIONS, DISPUTES OR RELATIONS BETWEEN YOU AND ANY OTHER PERSON OR ORGANIZATION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO OUR SERVICES OR CONTENT ACCESSED THROUGH OUR WEBSITE, PLATFORMS OR OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LIABILITY FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AS WELL AS FOR ANY HARM, INJURY, LOSS OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND INCURRED BY YOU OR ANYONE ELSE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, STATUTORY, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF WE OR ANY OF OUR INDEMNITEES HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBLITY OF SUCH DAMAGES).

DISPUTES AND UNDERSTANDING THESE TERMS
Choice of Law. These terms shall be construed in accordance with, and governed in all respects by, the internal laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia (without giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws).
Arbitration. In the rare event you have a dispute with us, any dispute, controversy or claim arising our of, relating to, or in connection with, our services, our website, or Platforms, and/or these terms or any breach, termination or validity thereof shall be settled only by arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association in effect at the time of the arbitration, except as they may be modified by these terms or by mutual agreement of us and you. The location of the arbitration shall be Fairfax County, Virginia, or such other location as mutually agreed. The arbitration shall be conducted by three arbitrators. The party initiating arbitration (the “Claimant”) shall appoint its arbitrator in its request for arbitration (a “Request”). The other party (the “Respondent”) shall appoint its arbitrator within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the Request and shall notify the Claimant of such appointment in writing. If the Respondent fails to appoint an arbitrator within such thirty (30) calendar day period, the arbitrator named in the Request shall decide the Dispute as the sole arbitrator. Otherwise, the two arbitrators appointed by the parties shall appoint a third arbitrator within thirty (30) calendar days after the Respondent has notified the Claimant of the appointment of the Respondent’s arbitrator. When the arbitrators appointed by the parties have appointed a third arbitrator and the third arbitrator has accepted the appointment, the two arbitrators shall promptly notify the parties of such appointment. If the two arbitrators appointed by the parties fail or are unable to appoint a third arbitrator or to notify the parties of such appointment, then the third arbitrator shall be appointed by the President of the American Arbitration Association which shall promptly notify the parties of the appointment of the third arbitrator. The third arbitrator shall act as chairman of the panel. The arbitration award shall be in writing and shall be final and binding on the parties. If we are the prevailing party in any arbitration (or lawsuit, including to remove a lawsuit to arbitration), we shall be entitled to an award of our reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, in addition to, and not in limitation of, other available remedies. All forum fees and expenses in any arbitration, including, without limitation, the arbitrators’ fees, shall be advanced equally by you and us; provided, however, that your failure to timely pay your portion of any arbitration fees shall entitle us to a default award (if you are the Respondent) or dismissal with prejudice (if you are the Claimant).
Confidentiality. You and we agree that all arbitration proceedings shall be private and confidential, and further agree not to issue any press release or public announcement with respect to any arbitration proceeding or any court action taken to enforce the arbitrator’s award, including, without limitation, the fact that the arbitration or a court action is being conducted, or disclose any aspect thereof, including any testimony, discovery and any documents filed in the course of such proceedings, except to the arbitrator and his/her staff, the parties’ attorneys and their staff, any experts retained by the parties, and to the court as necessary to enforce the arbitration award, provided that at the request of either party, the parties shall cooperate in seeking a protective order with respect to any such information disclosed to the court.
Injunction. Nothing in these terms, or otherwise, shall prevent us from seeking or obtaining preliminary injunctive or other provisional relief for the purpose of preventing irreparable injury, loss or damage pending a final resolution of the dispute, claim or controversy according to such dispute resolution provisions. You agree that the state and federal courts located in the Commonwealth of Virginia shall have exclusive jurisdiction of any request by us for injunctive relief, and you irrevocably agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose.
Severability. You acknowledge, and we affirm, that it is the intent of both us and you that the provisions contained in these terms should be enforced. If any term or other provision, or part of any provision of these terms is found to be invalid, illegal, or incapable of being enforced by any rule or law, or public policy, the provision, or any part of it, shall be severed from these terms and all other conditions and provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
Entire Understanding. These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersedes any prior written or oral agreement, with exception of any software license agreement, including any EULA, specifically entered into with us. Other than our Indemnitiees (who are expressly included as named third-party beneficiaries of these terms), there are no third-party beneficiaries to these terms. You also understand and agree that any action or inaction by us or any of our Indemnitiees to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of these terms is undertaken voluntarily and in good faith, and you expressly agree that neither us nor any of our Indemnitiees shall be liable to you or anyone else for any action or inaction to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of these terms.
8. Waiver. The waiver by us of a default or breach of any provision of these terms shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent default or breach of the same or of a different provision. No waiver or modification of these terms or of any covenant, condition or limitation contained in these terms shall be valid unless in writing and executed by an officer of our company. Failure of us to insist upon strict compliance with any of the terms, covenants or conditions in these terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such terms, covenants and conditions.
