We will take reasonable steps to notify you of termination or these other types of Services changes by email or at the next time you attempt to access your account.

If these Terms are terminated or suspended for any reason: (a) the license and any other rights granted under these Terms will end, (b) we may (but have no obligation to) delete your information and account data stored on our servers, and (c) we will not be liable to you or any third party for compensation, reimbursement, or damages for any termination or suspension of the Services, or for deletion of your information or account data. All sections of these Terms survive and remain in effect in accordance with their terms upon termination (whether initiated by MW Company or you) of your account.

Additionally, in the event your account has been terminated, any pending orders will be cancelled, and any unfulfilled orders will be refunded to your payment method. However, your payment may be held if there is a pending investigation at the time of your account termination. If the investigation yields that you are entitled to some or all of the funds in the dispute, we will promptly release those funds to you. Termination of the Services does not relieve you of any obligations to pay or debts of any fees or costs accrued in connection with the use of the Services.

8. Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability

MW COMPANY DOES NOT PROMISE THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED; THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL PROVIDE ANY CERTAIN RESULT; THAT THE INFORMATION ON THE SERVICES IS COMPLETE OR ACCURATE; THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR THAT THE SERVERS THAT MAKE IT AVAILABLE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR CONTAMINATION OR DESTRUCTIVE FEATURES. MW COMPANY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Services in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable to your or to others if for any reason all or part of the Services is unavailable at any time for any period. This shall not suspend or eliminate your payment obligations to us or provide you with any refund rights for amounts previously paid to us. We reserve the right to deny access to some or all parts of the Services, to any user or group, including registered users.

The Company disclaims any and all liability for the acts, omissions, and conduct of any third- party users, the Services users, advertisers, and/or sponsors on the Services, in connection with the Services, or otherwise related to your use of the Services. The Company is not responsible for the products, services, actions, or failure to act of any third party in connection with or referenced on the Services.

In no case shall MW Company, our directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, interns, suppliers, service providers or licensors be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use or misuse of the Services, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the Services, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the Services posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Services, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law. MW Company’s maximum liability will not exceed the amount you paid MW Company under the Terms within the 12 months preceding the event that gave rise to MW Company’s liability.

9. No Assignment by You.

You may not assign your rights or obligations under the Terms to any other person or entity without the prior written consent of MW Company, whether by operation of law or otherwise, and any attempt to do so shall be void.

10. Indemnification

You shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless MW Company and our stockholders, directors, officers, employees, interns, independent contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, and agents against any claim, demand, loss, liability, damage, injury cost or expense (including attorneys’ fees and legal costs) which arises, directly or indirectly, out of your act or omission with respect to the Services or any violation of the Terms or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.

11. Severability

In the event that any provision of these Terms is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.

12. Governing Law; Jurisdiction.

Except for either party’s claims of infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret, any and all disputes between you and MW Company arising under or related in any way to these Terms, must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this Section. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. It includes, but is not limited to, all claims and disputes relating to your use of our Services. YOU AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS OF USE, YOU AND MW COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND MW COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Section. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, You and MW Company must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration). All Disputes will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) administered by the American Arbitration Association (https://www.adr.org) according to this Section and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. The Arbitrator shall be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether these Terms or any additional terms (or any aspect thereof) are enforceable, unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.

Subject to applicable jurisdictional requirements, you may elect to pursue your claim in your local small-claims court rather than through arbitration so long as your matter remains in small claims court and proceeds only on an individual (non-class or non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. If you are a consumer bringing a claim relating to a transaction intended for a personal, household, or family use, any arbitration hearing will occur within the county where you reside. Otherwise, any arbitration hearing will occur in Placerville, California, or another mutually agreeable location. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the Arbitrator may do so only with respect to the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party’s claim. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect. MW Company will reimburse the arbitration fees due to the American Arbitration Association for individual arbitrations brought in accordance with this section for all claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the Arbitrator determines that your claims were frivolous. If you prevail on any claim for which you are legally entitled to attorney’s fees, you may seek to recover those fees from the arbitrator. For any claim where you are seeking relief, we will not seek to have you pay our attorney’s fees, even if fees might otherwise be awarded, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and MW Company also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of the Services. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions in consumer cases as discussed above) will be brought in and you hereby consent to be governed by Missouri law and/or applicable federal law (including the Federal Arbitration Act), without regard to its choice of law or conflicts of law principles, and that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in the City and County of Jackson, Missouri, or federal court for the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri.

Any action or proceeding by you relating to any Dispute must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues.

13. Remedies

You agree that monetary damages may not provide a sufficient remedy to MW Company for violations of these Terms. Accordingly, you agree that MW Company shall be entitled to an injunction or other equitable relief to prevent such violations, in any action instituted by any court of competent jurisdiction, in addition to any other remedies which may be available to it. The rights and remedies provided by these Terms are cumulative, and the use of any one right or remedy by MW Company shall not preclude or constitute a waiver of its right to use any or all other remedies. Such rights and remedies are given in addition to any other rights and remedies, including damages, MW Company may have by law, statute or otherwise.

14. Entire Agreement; Amendment or Waiver.

The Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on the site or in respect to the Services constitutes the entire understanding between you and MW Company and supersedes any prior understandings or agreements, oral or written, relating to the subject matter of the Terms. The Terms may only be amended by a document signed by you and MW Company. The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver of any breach of the Terms shall be deemed a waiver of a future breach, whether of a similar or different nature, and no waiver shall be effective unless in writing signed by the waiving party.

Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the drafting party.
