While VMk Agency considers all such notices seriously, you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that content or activity is infringing. Accordingly, if you are uncertain whether material infringes your copyrights (including whether use of copyrighted material may constitute fair use) you may wish to seek the advice of an attorney.

Indemnification
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless VMk Agency, its affiliates, related entities, divisions, subsidiaries, or parent companies, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates and agents from and against any claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other liabilities in any way associated with: (i) your use of and access to the Sites or Services; (ii) your violation of any of these Terms; and (iii) your violation of any third party right including any copyright, trademark, trade secret, or privacy right related to your User Content (as applicable), use of the Sites, or any other use of the Sites or Services using your computer, mobile device, or account credentials.

14. Disclaimers
YOUR USE OF THE SITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE OPERATION OF THE SITE OR THE INFORMATION, MATERIALS, GOODS OR SERVICES APPEARING OR OFFERED ON THE SITE, ALL OF WHICH ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” WITHOUT LIMITED THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY (1) WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; (2) WARRANTIES AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF ANY THIRD-PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OR PROPRIETARY RIGHTS OR ANY RIGHT OF PRIVACY; (3) WARRANTIES RELATING TO THE TRANSMISSION OR DELIVERY OF THE SITE OR SERVICES; (4) WARRANTIES RELATING TO THE COMPLETENESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, CORRECTNESS OR CURRENCY OF ANY INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE OR OTHERWISE BY US; (5) WARRANTIES OTHERWISE RELATING TO PERFORMANCE, NONPERFORMANCE, OR OTHER ACTS OR OMISSIONS BY US OR ANY THIRD PARTY; AND (6) WARRANTIES OF TITLE. FURTHER, VMK AGENCY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SITE OR SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR NEEDS OR REQUIREMENTS OR THE NEEDS OR REQUIREMENTS OF ANY OTHER PERSON. WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, THAT (1) THE SITE, CONTENT, FUNCTIONS OR MATERIALS CONTAINED THEREIN WILL BE TIMELY, SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED; (2) THE SITE OR ANY EMAIL WE SEND YOU, OR THE SERVER THAT MAKES THE SITE OR EMAILS AVAILABLE, IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS THAT MAY INFECT YOUR COMPUTER EQUIPMENT OR DEVICE OR OTHER PROPERTY BECAUSE OF YOUR ACCESS TO, USE OF, OR BROWSING ON THE SITE OR YOUR DOWLOADING OF ANY MATERIALS, DATA, TEXT, IMAGES, VIDEO OR AUDIO FROM THE SITE. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. HOWEVER, IF APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE WARRANTIES TO APPLY TO YOU, THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS WILL APPLY TO YOU TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

15. Limitation of Liabilities
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW: IN NO EVENT WILL VMK AGENCY (OR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, RELATED ENTITIES, JOINT VENTURES AND EMPLOYEES, OR ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING OR DELIVERING THE SITE) BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR SPECIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE OR SERVICES, OR CONTENT INCLUDING ANY LOSS OF REVENUE, PROFITS, OR DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND EVEN IF VMK AGENCY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL VMK AGENCY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY (OR THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, RELATED ENTITIES, JOINT VENTURES AND EMPLOYEES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, THE WEBSITE, OR THE SERVICES (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT NEGLIGENCE, WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED $100. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITE MUST BEGIN WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, VMK AGENCY’S LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, VMK AGENCY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SITE, YOUR SOLE REMEDY IS TO STOP USING THE SITE.

16. Release
If you have a dispute with us or one or more users of the Sites or Services, you release VMk Agency (and its officers, directors, affiliates, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that all rights under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code are expressly waived. That section provides: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTENT TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.

17. Termination
VMk Agency reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate these Terms and your access to all or any part of the Sites or the Content or Services, at any time and for any reason without prior notice or liability. You may terminate these Terms by discontinuing your use of the Services and access to the Sites. VMk Agency also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cease providing the Sites or Services at any time.
18. Severability
If any provision of these Terms is held in whole or in part to be invalid, void, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason, the remainder of that provision and of the entire Agreement will be severable and remain in full force and effect.

19. Applicable Law
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California, as applicable, without resort to any conflict of laws provisions. By using the Sites, you waive any claims that may arise under the laws of other countries or territories.

20. Dispute Resolution; Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver
With respect to any and all disputes arising out of or in connection with the Sites, Services, or these Terms (including, without limitation, the Privacy Policy), VMk Agency and you agree to first negotiate in good faith and undertake reasonable efforts to cooperate with one another in order to achieve a mutually satisfactory resolution. If you and VMk Agency do not resolve any dispute by informal negotiation within 60 days, then either of the parties may, by notice to the other, demand mediation under the supervision of JAMS (“JAMS”) in Los Angeles, California. If settlement is not reached within 90 days after service of a written demand for mediation (which time can be extended with the agreement of both parties in writing), any unresolved controversy or claim will be resolved by initiating binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of JAMS before a single arbitrator in Los Angeles, California. The expenses of the arbitration will be shared equally by the parties unless the arbitration determines that the expenses will be assessed in a different way, and the prevailing party may be awarded its attorneys’ fees and expenses by the arbitrator. Consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration, pre-hearing information exchange will be limited to the reasonable production of relevant, non-privileged documents, conducted expeditiously. Both you and VMk Agency understand that you are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.
Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis and neither you nor ​​VMk Agency will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute under this agreement must be filed within one year in an arbitration proceeding, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary. The one-year period begins when the claim or notice of dispute first could be filed. If a claim or dispute is not filed within one year, it is permanently barred. If any other provision of this section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be severed, with the remainder of this section remaining in full force and effect.
You agree that VMk Agency is entitled to obtain preliminary injunctive relief to the extent allowed by law to enforce any of the terms of these Terms pending a final arbitral decision, and you and VMk Agency understand that you are NOT required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief from the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. Any disputes that are not handled by arbitration shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California, and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.

21. General
You may not assign any rights granted to you or delegate any of your duties hereunder and any attempt to do so is void and of no effect. VMk Agency may assign its rights and delegate its duties under this Agreement in their entirety in connection with a merger, reorganization, or sale of all, or substantially all, of its assets relating to this Terms. Nothing in this Agreement constitutes a partnership or joint venture between you and VMk Agency. VMk Agency does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to this Site or Services, and operation of the Sites may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of its control. VMk Agency’s failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and VMk Agency with respect to the subject matter hereof. Sections 7 (Prohibited Conduct); 8 (Security); 9 (Use of Account; Risk of Loss); 10 (Submitted Materials); 11 (Intellectual Property); 13 (Indemnification); 14 (Disclaimers); 15 (Limitation of Liabilities); 16 (Release); 18 (Severability); 19 (Applicable Law; Jurisdiction); 20 (Dispute Resolution; Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver) and 21 (General) survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement. Additionally, any provision that was, by its nature, intended to survive termination of these Terms will so survive.

GENERALLY, WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED AND STORED? One of the basic principles we’ve tried to follow in designing the Site is that we ask for only the information we need to provide the service you’ve requested. As a result, the information we collect and store depends almost entirely on how you choose to make use of the Site and its related services.
PERSONAL INFORMATION We collect and store information that you enter into the Site or that you provide through our Customer Service Department. For example, when you provide information about your accident to us or download information that requires submission of a form, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide, for example: name, address, email address, telephone number and a description of your case. This information is used to provide the services that you have requested, and to provide customer service. Information not required to provide the services that you have requested is always optional. Personal Information may also be collected in certain portions of the Site in which you specifically and knowingly provide such information to us or to operators of subnetworks within the Site (“Subnetwork Operators”), suggestions, or customer service requests. Some of this information also may be used to contact you about new features, new services, and special offers unless you have elected to not receive such promotional communications in connection with the Site.
TRANSFER OF EMAIL ADDRESSES We will not give, sell, or otherwise transfer email addresses maintained by the Site to any other party for the purposes of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, electronic mail messages to you.
ANONYMOUS INFORMATION Through your use of the Site, we may also gather certain information that does not identify you individually (“Anonymous Information”). Generally, this information is collected through “traffic data”. We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with the Site. For example, we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit the Site. We also collect information regarding customer-traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve the Site and to provide our customers with a fulfilling experience.
COOKIES AND SPYWARE We never use or install spyware on your computer, nor do we use spyware to retrieve information from your computer. Like many websites, we use “cookies”, which are files stored on your computer’s hard drive by your browser. Cookies help us to identify users and to optimize their experience. Cookies also allow us to hold selections in a “shopping cart” when a user leaves the Site without checking out and send reminder emails about your requests and other opportunities. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. We recommend that you leave cookies “turned on” so that we can offer you a better user experience on the Site. You may occasionally get Cookies from companies advertising on our behalf. We do not control these Cookies, and these Cookies are not subject to this Privacy Policy.
We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide information about our service, recommendations, and special offers that we think will interest you and, if you have agreed to receive email from us, send you reminders about offers and other helpful information.
Our websites use third party vendors, including Google, which use cookies to display our ads based on a user’s prior visits to our website. These ads may contain cookies. While we use cookies in other parts of our Website, cookies received with banner ads are collected by our ad company, and we do not have access to this information. For further information regarding the privacy practices of our advertisement provider, please visit http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html
Users may opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page.
REGULAR CORRESPONDENCE After you submit a web form, we may use the email address and zip codes of all users who subscribe to any of our newsletters or other regular correspondence. Except to our third-party agents (as described below), this information is not shared with any third parties. Anyone who no longer wishes to receive this newsletter or other regular correspondence can, at any time, follow the “Unsubscribe” instructions located within each newsletter.
KIDS AND PRIVACY We do not knowingly collect any personal information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you should use the Site only under the immediate supervision of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us. Our Website is not intentionally targeted to children under the age of 18. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, THEN IMMEDIATELY EXIT THE SITE UNLESS YOU ARE DIRECTLY SUPERVISED BY A PARENT OR OTHER LEGAL GUARDIAN.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION? Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not use or disclose information about your individual visits to the Site or your Personal Information collected online to any companies not affiliated with us. If we propose to permit any use of your Personal Information, you will be provided an opportunity to decline such contact.
8.1 Customer Service and Feedback We may use your Personal Information to provide services available through the Site, provide customer service, track your compliance with the Site’s rules and regulations, or for editorial and feedback purposes (to the extent that is explained when you provide the information).
In the event we plan to publicly post any of your Personal Information on the Site (as, for instance, a letter), you will be provided prior notification of such posting and given the option to decline the same.
8.2 Use of Anonymous Information We use Anonymous Information to help us determine how people use parts of the Site and who our readers are so we can improve our Website and ensure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many people as possible.
