THE FOLLOWING TERMS IN THIS SECTION 17 APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW:
We want the Chrisco Ltd. App to be an entertaining and valuable place, but we provide it “as is.” That means that we make no promises that the Chrisco Ltd. App is accurate, complete, reliable, current, secure or error-free; that it will operate or be accessible without interruption; or that the Chrisco Ltd.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT: (A) YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR ANY PROBLEMS OR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE Chrisco Ltd. App IS TO TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT AND DISCONTINUE ALL USE OF THE Chrisco Ltd.

App PARTIES”) EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT UNDER THE LAW, (INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, WITH RESPECT TO THE Chrisco Ltd. App). THE Chrisco Ltd. App PARTIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE Chrisco Ltd. App WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT IT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR FREE, THAT DEFECTS IN THE Chrisco Ltd. App OR CONTENT, INCLUDING USER CONTENT, WILL BE CORRECT OR CORRECTED, OR THAT THE DATA, INFORMATION AND/OR CONTENT (INCLUDING THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY THEREOF) OBTAINED ON OR THROUGH THE Chrisco Ltd.

App PARTIES BE LIABLE (UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY) FOR ANY DAMAGES, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, AND EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF, KNEW OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO USE OF, ACCESS TO, RELIANCE UPON, CONTENT OF, SECURITY OF, OR INABILITY TO USE THE Chrisco Ltd.

App Parties harmless from and against all claims, actions, liabilities, damages and expenses (including court costs, legal fees, and amounts paid in settlement) arising out of or relating to: (a) your use of the Chrisco Ltd. App (including any third party claim that any of the User Content posted by you or your account infringes any third party proprietary right); and/or (b) any actual or alleged violation of these Terms by you. You will cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defense of any such claim or action; however, we reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you (in which case, you agree to cooperate with our defense). You are solely responsible and liable for: (i) any breach of your representations, warranties, covenants or obligations under these Terms and for the consequences of such breach, including any resulting loss or damage incurred by us or third parties; (ii) all activities that occur under your registration or account to the Chrisco Ltd. App; and (iii) any actions and omissions by any of your personnel and/or other persons and entities under your control or supervision. Dispute Resolution, Arbitration and No Class Actions No Class Actions and Severability: YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. You and we agree as follows: (a) neither you nor we will seek to have a dispute between us (“Dispute”) heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity; (b) no arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding; and (c) if the class action waiver or any part of this Section 19 is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a Dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration. Governing Law: These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to conflict of law principles. If a lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, you and we agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within the Southern District of New York for the purpose of litigating any Dispute. Agreement to Arbitrate: You and we agree to arbitrate all Disputes (except those exceptions specifically set out in the next subsection) between you and us or our affiliates, except Disputes related to our intellectual property rights. You and we empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute, including, without limitation, whether any part of these Terms are void or voidable. Disputes Excluded from Arbitration: You and we agree that nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit your or our right to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (d) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim or to compel or uphold any arbitration decision hereunder. In such cases, neither you nor we shall need to follow the informal negotiations procedure and timeline set out in the next subsection. Informal Negotiations: To help get you and us to a resolution and to control costs for you and us regarding any Dispute, you and we agree to first attempt to informally discuss and try to negotiate a resolution to any Dispute (except the Disputes specifically set out below) for at least 60 days from when notice of the Dispute is sent. Those informal negotiations will commence upon written notice from you to us or us to you. We will send our notice to your registered email address and any billing address that you provided to us. You will send your notice to 405 Lexington Avenue, 32nd Floor, New York, NY 10174, Attn: Scott Booth. After 60 days, you or we may commence arbitration. If the Dispute cannot be resolved within that time period, and if either you or we desire to continue the Dispute, the party desiring to continue the Dispute shall commence arbitration. Commencing Arbitration: If you and we do not resolve a Dispute by informal negotiation, the Dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY AND GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO A CLASS ACTION. Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”). You can find more information at www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim. Fees and Location: If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, we will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York County, New York, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed by us that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve Disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. Confidentiality of Settlement Offers: During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or us may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award (if any). Minimum Award: If you win in the arbitration, and are awarded an amount that exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by us, we will pay you the highest of the following: (a) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (b) $10,000. Choice of Forum for Disputes That Are Not Subject to Arbitration: You and we agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms that is not subject to arbitration shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in the Southern District of New York, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.

We also will advise the alleged infringer of the counter-notification procedure, as described in, and required by, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, 17 U.S.C. § 512. If we receive a valid counter-notification, we will restore the removed or disabled material after ten (10), but no later than fourteen (14), business days from the date on which we receive the counter-notification, unless our Copyright Agent first receives notice from you, as the party filing the original notification of copyright infringement, informing us that you have filed a court action to restrain infringement of the material in question. Repeat Infringer Policy: Our intellectual property policy is to (a) remove or disable access to material that we believe in good faith, upon notice from an intellectual property owner or his or her agent, is infringing the intellectual property of a third party by being made available through the Chrisco Ltd. App; and (b) remove any User Content uploaded to the Chrisco Ltd. App by “repeat infringers.” We consider a “repeat infringer” to be any user that has uploaded User Content or Feedback to or through the Chrisco Ltd.
