YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT USE OF THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THAT THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, ACCURACY, AND EFFORT IS WITH YOU. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE,” WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND WE HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OF ACCURACY, OF QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS. WE DO NOT WARRANT AGAINST INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR ENJOYMENT OF THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS, THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN, OR SERVICES PERFORMED OR PROVIDED BY, THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE OPERATION OF THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS WILL BE CORRECTED.

The Additional Offerings are in no way intended or warranted to meet or satisfy the requirements of any applicable law, regulation, or safety standard regarding the type, pitch, quality, or volume of sound that may be required to be emitted from electric or hybrid vehicles during operation (such as an acoustic vehicle alerting system, warning mechanism, or otherwise).
13. Limitations of Liability.
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL WE, OUR LICENSORS, OR OUR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR PERSONAL INJURY OR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES, COSTS OF REPLACEMENT, BUSINESS INTERRUPTIONS, OR LOSS OF DATA, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE), AND EVEN IF WE ARE EXPRESSLY ADVISED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THOSE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO USE OR MISUSE OF THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS; INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS; ANY LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA OR INFORMATION SUBMITTED VIA THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS; OR ANY COMMUNICATIONS OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY, OR REQUESTED FROM, US VIA THE ADDITIONAL OFFERINGS. In no event shall our total liability to you for all damages exceed the greater of the amount of fees paid by you for the Additional Offering that is the subject of such claim or $100.00. The foregoing limitations will apply even if any stated remedy fails of its essential purpose. In some jurisdictions, certain limitations of liability are not permitted, and, to that extent, such limitations on liability may not apply to you.
We assume no responsibility and no liability for any claims, demands, actions, liabilities, losses, damages, or expenses arising out of or relating to any personal injury (including death) or property damage or any violation of any applicable traffic or driving laws or regulations, occurring wholly or in part due to automobile / vehicular accidents or other driving-related incidents, including but not limited to such accidents or incidents occurring while an Additional Offering is in use.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us and our employees, contractors, officers, and directors from and against any and all claims, suits, demands, actions, damages, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that arise from your use or misuse of an Additional Offering or your breach or violation of any of the terms and conditions referenced herein or the law. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification and defense by you, in which event you will cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.
15. Injunctive Relief.
You agree that your breach or threatened breach of these Terms will cause us irreparable injury for which recovery of monetary damages would be inadequate and that we, therefore, may obtain timely injunctive relief to protect our rights under these Terms in addition to any and all other remedies available to us at law or in equity.
16. Governing Law; Jurisdiction.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Ohio and applicable federal laws of the United States of America, without giving effect to conflict of laws principles. Subject to the below Dispute Resolution provisions and for any disputes not otherwise subject to arbitration, you irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts situated in Columbus, Ohio, USA, for purposes of any legal action arising out of or related to these Terms or use of the Additional Offerings.
17. Dispute Resolution.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE REQUIREMENT OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
You must contact us within one (1) year of the date of the occurrence of the event or facts giving rise to a dispute, or you waive the right to pursue any claim based upon such event, facts, or dispute.
Any civil action, claim, dispute, or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms or access to or use of the Additional Offerings will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, before a single arbitrator, rather than in court (except as provided in Section 15). Except as provided in Section 15, the arbitrator – and not any federal, state, or local court or agency – will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of these Terms or access to or use of the Additional Offerings and to arbitrate any part of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of this section or these Terms is void or voidable.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) exclusively in Columbus, Ohio, USA, under the AAA’s rules and procedures, as modified by this section and conducted in the English language. The AAA’s rules and a form for initiating arbitration proceedings are available at www.adr.org .
You and we will select the arbitrator, and, if you and we are unable to reach agreement on selection of the arbitrator within 30 days after the notice of arbitration is served, then the AAA will select the arbitrator. Arbitration will not commence until the party requesting arbitration has deposited such fees and costs as required by the AAA for arbitration of the type of claim brought by the person requesting arbitration. The party requesting arbitration will advance such sums as are required from time to time by the arbitrator to pay the arbitrator’s fees and costs until the prevailing party is determined or the parties have agreed in writing to an alternate allocation of fees and costs.
Agreement to these Terms constitutes an agreement to pursue your claim on an individual basis and a waiver of the ability to pursue your claim in a class or representative action (or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf the general public). If a dispute is arbitrated, you give up your right to participate as a class representative or class member on any class claim you may have against us, including any right to class arbitration or any consolidation of individual arbitrations.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving our other users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same user to the extent required by applicable law. Judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrator is final, binding, and conclusive upon you and us and your and our respective administrators, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, and may only be entered in the state or federal courts of record in or for Columbus, Ohio, USA.
If you do not wish to be bound by arbitration and waive your rights to participate in a class action, you must notify us in writing within thirty (30) days of the date that you first obtain Additional Offerings and include: (i) your name, (ii) your account number (if any), (iii) your mailing address, and (iv) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with us through arbitration. You must send your notice to us at: email@example.com. If you do not notify us, you agree to be bound by the arbitration provisions and the class-action waiver provisions herein.
These Terms constitutes the legal agreement between you and us regarding their subject matter. Section headings are for convenience and do not define or limit the scope or intent of such sections. If any part of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions remain in full force and effect, or we may at our option terminate these Terms. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of these Terms or any breach thereof, in any one instance, shall not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. We will not be liable for any delay, failure in performance, or interruption of service resulting directly or indirectly from any cause beyond our reasonable control.
