DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES & LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY

DISCLAIMER

THIS SERVICES AND SITE CONTENT (INCLUDING USER SUBMISSIONS) ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

We specifically disclaim all warranties and conditions of any kind, including all implied warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, freedom from defects, uninterrupted use and all warranties implied from any course of dealing or usage of trade. We do not warrant that (a) the Site will meet your requirements, (b) operation of the Site will be uninterrupted or virus- or error-free or (c) errors will be corrected.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE, FOR CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF OR ANY INABILITY TO USE THE SITE OR OTHERWISE UNDER THESE TERMS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF: (A) THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO US FOR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITE IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT OR CIRCUMSTANCE GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM AND (B) $100.

EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS INTENDED TO AND DOES ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN US UNDER THESE TERMS BUT WILL NOT BE APPLICABLE IF AND WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN US. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR".

INDEMNIFICATION

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold AwareHomeTest and its affiliates harmless from any loss, liability, claim, demands, costs, or expenses arising from your violation of these

GOVERNING LAW

You agree that all matters relating to your access to or use of the Site will be governed by the laws of the State of Ohio without regard to conflict of law principles.

Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude or otherwise limit the right to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through a government regulator or pursue a statutory remedy available in the applicable court of law; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.

AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE

Arbitrator. Any arbitration between us will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, AAA Rules) as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting us. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.

Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (Notice of Arbitration). Our address for Notice or Arbitration is: Pandora S9 Inc, 10234 Alliance road, Blue Ash, Ohio, 45242. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (Demand). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, either of us may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by either of us must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount greater than the last written settlement amount offered by us n settlement of the dispute prior to the award, we will pay to you the higher of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (ii) U.S. $10,000.

Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Ohio, but if the claim is for U.S. $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 it 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.

No Class Actions. WE EACH 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. Further, unless both we each agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

30-Day Opt-Out Period. If you do not wish to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this , you must notify us in writing within 30 days of the date that you first accept these Terms (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). Your written notification must be mailed to the following address: Pandora S9 Inc, 10234 Alliance road, Blue Ash, Ohio, 45242. If you do not notify us in accordance with this Section, you agree to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions of these Terms, including such provisions in the Terms revised after the date of your first acceptance. The notification must include: (a) your name, (b) the email address associated with your account (if any), (c) your mailing address, (d) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with us through arbitration. This notification affects these Terms only; if you previously entered into other arbitration agreements with us or enter into other agreements in the future, your notification that you are opting out of the arbitration provision in these Terms does not and will not affect the other arbitration agreements between us.

Changes to this Arbitration Provision. If we make any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to our address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days after the change to our address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account with us will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.

Enforceability. If for some reason the entirety of the agreement to arbitrate is deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a competent authority, then we each agree to resolve disputes arising from or related to these Terms as described in “GOVERNING LAW” above. We each agree to submit to the jurisdiction of, and agree that venue is proper in, these courts in any such legal action or proceeding.

This Site may contain links to other sites and online service operated by third parties including social media (collectively, “Linked Sites”). You access Linked Sites at your own risk. The inclusion of a link does not imply endorsement by us of the Linked Sites or any association with the operators of the Linked Sites. We do not investigate, verify or monitor the Linked Sites.
