You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify ISOThrive of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.

You agree not to post on or transmit through this Site any unlawful, infringing, threatening, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, indecent, offensive, hateful or otherwise objectionable material of any kind, including any material that encourages criminal conduct or conduct that would give rise to civil liability, infringes others’ intellectual property rights or otherwise violates any applicable local, state, national or international law.

ISOThrive makes no representation that Materials contained on the Site or products described or offered on the Site are appropriate or available for use in jurisdictions outside the United States, or that this Agreement complies with the laws of any other country. Visitors who use the Site and reside outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

ISOThrive reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Site (or any part thereof) with or without notice.

Sections IV, V, VI, VII and VIII through XIII shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

X. Applicable Law; Jurisdiction; Dispute Resolution

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal laws, and the laws of the State of California in the United States, without regard to its choice of law provisions.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site, or to any products or services sold or distributed by ISOThrive or through the Site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Agreement. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Use as a court would. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to ISOThrive LLC, 9385 Discovery Blvd, Manassas, VA 20109. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, ISOThrive will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. We each agree that any arbitrator hearing a claim may not: (i) combine more than one individual’s claim or claims into a single case; (ii) order, require, participate in or facilitate production of class-wide contact information or notification of others of potential claims; or (iii) arbitrate any form of a class, collective, or representative proceeding. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

XI. Severability; Interpretation

If any provision of this Agreement shall be deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions shall not be affected. When used in this Agreement, the term “including” shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”

XII. Entire Agreement

This Agreement constitutes the entire and only Agreement between ISOThrive and each user of this Site with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous Agreements, representations, warranties and understandings, written or oral, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.

XIII. Miscellaneous

The failure of ISOThrive to insist upon strict adherence to any term of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such term and shall not be considered a waiver or limit that party’s right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Agreement. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim of cause of action arising from or relating to use of this Site or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or will be forever barred.
