To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Service is provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title or non-infringement, as to the service or the Aerion Content disclosed therein. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from Aerion or through the Service, including any Aerion Content, will create any warranty not expressly stated herein. Without limiting the foregoing, Aerion and the Aerion Parties do not warrant that the service or the Aerion Content is accurate, reliable or correct; that the Service or Aerion Content will meet your requirements; that the Service or Aerion Content will be available at any particular time or location, uninterrupted or secure; that any defects or errors will be corrected; or that the Service or Aerion Content is free of viruses or other harmful components.

The Service and Aerion Content contain various combinations of text, images, audiovisual productions, opinions, statements, facts, articles or other information created by us or by third-parties. Due to the nature of the Service and the Aerion Content, the number of sources for same and the passage of time, the Service and Aerion Content may be or become unreliable or inaccurate, due to delays in updating same, omissions from same or for other reasons. Accordingly, the Service and Aerion Content are for your reference only, do not include a promise, warranty or representation by Aerion as to the reliability or accuracy of any particular facts or circumstances, are not subject to any duty to update on the part of Aerion and should not be relied upon by you for any purpose.

Internet pages, investor relations releases, outlooks, presentations, audio and video files of events (live or recorded) and other Aerion Content contain among other things forward-looking statements that reflect Aerion’s current views with respect to future events. The words “anticipate”, “assume”, “believe”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “plan”, “project” and “should” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: changes in product design, changes in currency exchange rates, interest rates and in raw material prices; and introduction of competing products.
Federal law, some states, provinces and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion and limitations of certain implied warranties, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers and exclusions under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
11. Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Aerion, the Aerion Parties, or their suppliers or licensors be liable for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, arising out of, in connection with, or relating to the use of, or inability to use, the Service, even if Aerion has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Under no circumstances shall Aerion, the Aerion Parties or their suppliers or licensors be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from hacking, tampering or other unauthorized access or use of the Service or your account or the information contained therein.

This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, warranty, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
12. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
12.1. Governing Law
This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Delaware, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in New Castle County, Delaware for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our data security, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other proprietary or Intellectual Property rights, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that the state and federal courts in New Castle County, Delaware will be the sole and exclusive forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Aerion. For any dispute with Aerion, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Aerion has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Washoe County, Nevada, unless you and Aerion agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Aerion from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to Section 12.1 to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other proprietary or Intellectual Property Rights, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm.
12.3. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, all Claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s Claims. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Aerion are each, to the maximum extent permitted by law, waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Aerion without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
13.2. Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement
13.3. Entire Agreement/Severability
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Aerion in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Aerion concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
13.4. No Waiver
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Aerion’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
