WAIVER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY - PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT LIMITS OUR LIABILITY TO YOU.
NOTHING HEREIN IS INTENDED TO LIMIT ANY RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE WHICH MAY NOT BE LAWFULLY LIMITED. IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT THIS OR ANY OTHER SECTION OF THESE TERMS, CONSULT WITH A LEGAL PROFESSIONAL BEFORE ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS, INCLUDING THIS SECTION. YOU ARE GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL LEGAL RIGHTS BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS.
YOU HEREBY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO BRING OR ASSERT ANY CLAIM AGAINST US RELATING TO THE SERVICES, AND RELEASE US FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FROM OR RELATING TO THE SERVICES, TO THE MAXIMUMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL WE, OUR AGENTS, OR OUR ASSIGNS, BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOST OR DAMAGED INFORMATION OR DATA, DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION, SUBSTITUTE GOODS, REPUTATIONAL HARM, OR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, RELIANCE, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, WARRANTY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, FOR ANY REASON OR CAUSE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL LIABILITY TO US, OR OUR MEMBERS, MANAGERS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR ASSIGNS, EXCEED THE GREATER OF (i) THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO US IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY, OR (ii) FIVE U.S. DOLLARS ($5.00).

We want you to enjoy our Services, so if you have an issue or dispute, you agree to raise it first by explaining the issue or dispute with us over email by Contacting Us and trying to resolve it informally a least ninety (90) days before initiating legal action. After such informal negotiations, before any party can initiate a lawsuit related to the Services, the parties must meet in good faith to engage in mediation with a mutually acceptable neutral mediator, located in Multnomah County, Oregon.
YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM ASSERTED IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING BY ONE PARTY AGAINST THE OTHER SHALL BE COMMENCED AND MAINTAINED EXCLUSIVELY IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN MULTNOMAH COUNTY, OREGON. You agree to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts in connection with any litigation, and hereby waive all objections to venue and any claim that the forum is inconvenient.
These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Oregon, without regard to conflict-of-laws principles.
The Terms may not be modified or amended except in a writing signed by our duly authorized representative. Any waiver must be in a writing signed by us or our duly authorized representative. A waiver of any right, default, or provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a continuing waiver or a waiver of any other default or term. Any of these Terms deemed invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall not render invalid or unenforceable the remaining Terms or otherwise affect the validity or enforceability of any of the remaining Terms. If any provision of the Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be modified to the extent necessary to render it enforceable without losing its intent. If no such modification is possible, that provision shall be deemed severed from the rest of this agreement. All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive the termination of your access to the Services, including, without limitation, provisions about ownership, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.
If either party brings legal action to enforce these Terms, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorney fees and costs incurred in connection with such action, prior to, at trial, and on any appeal, in addition to any legal and equitable remedies. Any failure by us to exercise any remedy or enforce any portion of the Terms at any time shall not operate as a waiver of any remedy or right to enforce any portion of the Agreement at any time.
YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION RELATED TO THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
