To the fullest extent permitted by law, in no event shall Wildwood Chocolate, nor its affiliates, officers, members, employees, independent contractors, agents or representatives be liable for: (I) any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages, including but not limited to damages for personal injury, death, loss of livelihood, loss of enjoyment, pain or suffering, emotional distress, loss of profits, loss of future earnings, goodwill, use, and/or any other damages or other intangible losses, (II) use of the Service, (III) errors, omissions, inaccuracies, completeness of content; (IV) content posted by other users that you may feel to be defamatory or offensive, (IV) objectionable or illegal conduct of any third party, including other users, (V) resolution, Internet bandwidth, device compatibility or viewing capabilities, (VI) availability, defect, delay, interruption, cessation or other failure of the Service, (VII) any product or service offered by a third party through the Service, (VIII) intrusion, hacking or violation of the Service by any third party including unauthorized access to servers and access or use of your personal or financial information stored therein, (IX) malware, including bots, bugs, viruses, Trojan horses, (X) the security of the Service including the unauthorized access, interception, corruption, damage or misuse of any information you download or share, (XI) any other loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any content published or transmitted, through the Service, or (XII) anything else subject to a disclaimer set forth in this Agreement, whether such above listed claims are based on theories of warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, and whether or not Wildwood Chocolate is advised of the possibility of such damages. Furthermore, Wildwood Chocolate is not liable even if it has been negligent or if its representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages. No communication of any kind between you and Wildwood Chocolate, or a Wildwood Chocolate representative, shall constitute a waiver of any limitation on liability hereunder or create any additional warranty not expressly stated in this Agreement. In the event that this limitation on liability is not enforceable, our total liability to you shall not exceed the amounts paid by you to access the Service.
THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Wildwood Chocolate and its affiliates, members, officers, employees, independent contractors, consultants, agents, and representatives, from and against any and all liability, claims, damages, liabilities, obligations, losses, costs and expenses (including attorney's fees) that arise from: (i) your access to or use of the Service; (ii) breach by you of any term of this Agreement; (iii) your violation of a third party right, including an intellectual property right, or (iv) any claim related to your User Content. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification and you agree to cooperate with Wildwood Chocolate in connection with such indemnification obligations. This indemnification obligation shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
By accessing or using the Service, you agree that the exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim between you and Wildwood Chocolate (including any officer, member, employee, independent contractor, agent or representative, or any affiliate of any of these parties (the “Wildwood Parties”)) arising out of or relating to: (i) this Agreement, (ii) the Service, or (iii) any transaction between us, shall be by binding arbitration. You and Wildwood Chocolate further agree that any decision regarding the enforceability or validity of this arbitration provision will be determined by the arbitrator and not by any court. You further agree not to, under any circumstances, bring or maintain any claim against the Wildwood Parties as part of a class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding, or to join arbitration proceedings. In agreeing to this, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. YOU ARE ALSO GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. If you do not agree to this arbitration agreement and class action waiver, you must tell us in writing and not access or use the Service.
In arbitration, your claims will be heard and determined by a neutral arbiter, not a judge or jury. You are entitled to a fair hearing in front of the arbitrator. Arbitration is usually a more informal streamlined procedure than a court proceeding. An arbitrator can grant the same relief that a court can award. Therefore, decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. The arbitrator will not have the authority to: (1) consolidate claims brought by more than one person against the Wildwood Parties; (2) preside over any representative or class action against the Wildwood Parties; or (3) award damages to a class. Any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. You acknowledge and agree that this class action waiver is material to the agreement to arbitrate disputes.
This Agreement, and any dispute between you and Wildwood Chocolate, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Oregon without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“), and conducted under AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) in effect at the time of the dispute. You may obtain copies of the AAA Rules which explain how to begin an arbitration procedure by visiting the AAA website at www.adr.org, or by calling AAA at (800) 778-7879.
In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against the Wildwood Parties may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Portland, Oregon. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of these courts and waive any right to a trial by jury.
Integration. This Agreement together with the FAQs, any Additional Terms, and legal notices published on the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Wildwood Chocolate and shall and supersede any prior agreements between you and Wildwood Chocolate with respect to the Service and the provisions of this Agreement.
Modification. We reserve the right to modify this Agreement in our sole discretion at any time without advance notice. We will post all updated versions of the Agreement on the Website. Modifications will go into effect on the date posted on the Website. It is your responsibility to review all modifications. Your access and/or use of the Service after this Agreement is modified will constitute your consent to all revised terms.
Assignment. We may transfer or assign this Agreement and any of our rights and/or obligations under this Agreement at any time in our sole discretion. This Agreement may not be transferred or assigned by you without Wildwood Chocolate’s express prior written consent.
Waiver and Severability. The failure by Wildwood Chocolate to exercise or enforce any right under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, all other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
Statute of Limitations. All claims or causes of action arising out of or related to the access or use of the Service, or this Agreement, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arises or be forever barred, regardless of any law or statute to the contrary.
Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Oregon, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any claim or dispute between you and Wildwood Chocolate that arises in whole or in part out of this Agreement or from the access or use of the Service shall be decided exclusively by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction located in Portland, Oregon, as provided above in this Agreement. To that end, you agree that the Service shall be deemed to be based in Oregon and to be a passive service that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Wildwood Chocolate, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Oregon.
