Electronic Communications Privacy Act Notice (18USC 2701-2711): Company makes no guarantee of confidentiality or privacy of any communication or information transmitted on the site or any website linked to the site.
Limitation of Liability
In no event shall company, nor its directors, employees, agents, partners, suppliers or content providers, be liable under contract, tort, strict liability, negligence or any other legal or equitable theory with respect to the service (including, without limitation, any content) (I) for any lost profits, data loss, cost of procurement of substitute goods or services, or special, indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever, substitute goods or services (however arising), (II) for any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like (regardless of the source of origination), (III) for your reliance on the service (IV) for any direct damages in excess of (in the aggregate) one-hundred U.S. dollars ($100.00). Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you.
You shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the company, its affiliates and each of its affiliate employees, contractors, directors, suppliers and representatives from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, that arise from or relate to (i) your use or misuse of, or access to, the sites, services, and content (ii) your violation of the terms (iii) infringement by you, or any third party using your account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.

Any legal dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon, excluding conflict of law rules, and the United States of America. For all purposes of these terms, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the United States Federal Courts located in Jackson County, Oregon, using the English language, in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc.

Said arbitrator shall be selected from the corresponding JAMS list in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS.
The prevailing party in the arbitration shall be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees, expert witness fees and all other expenses) incurred in connection with the dispute at hand. Judgment upon the award so rendered may be entered in a court having jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator.
Use of the services is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the terms, including without limitation, this section.

The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.
We shall not be liable for any failure to perform obligations hereunder where such failures result from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including "line-noise" interference).
You expressly agree and understand that the sites and services are not intended, nor required, to support or carry emergency or time-critical calls or communications to any type of hospital, law enforcement agency, medical care unit or any other kind of emergency or time-critical service ("emergency services").
