The material in this Website could include technical inaccuracies or typographical errors, including pricing errors. Certain information is subject to change. Neither CJ nor any of its suppliers or providers guarantee the accuracy, correctness, completeness, or timeliness of the services, data, or other information furnished via the Website.  The products (“Products”) provided for sale through the Website are provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind (unless otherwise set forth in a specific limited warranty provided with the applicable Product) and further provided that Products are subject to our return policies as specified on the Website from time to time.  ALL CONTENT, MATERIALS, INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES INCLUDED IN OR AVAILABLE THROUGH THE WEBSITE ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE". THE WEBSITE AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY ANY COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. COMPANY, AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS DO NOT WARRANT THAT: (A) THE CONTENT IS TIMELY, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, RELIABLE OR CORRECT; (B) THE WEBSITE WILL BE SECURE OR AVAILABLE AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME OR LOCATION; (C) ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; (D) THE CONTENT IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; OR (E) THE RESULTS OF USING THE WEBSITE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS. YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.  SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES. THEREFORE, SOME OF THE ABOVE AND BELOW LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL CJ (OR ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) BE LIABLE CONCERNING THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ANY CLAIM OR ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE), FOR ANY (A) MATTER BEYOND ITS REASONABLE CONTROL, (B) LOSS OR INACCURACY OF DATA, LOSS OR INTERRUPTION OF USE, OR COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE TECHNOLOGY, GOODS OR SERVICES, (C) INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, RELIANCE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF BUSINESS, REVENUES, PROFITS OR GOODWILL, EVEN IF CJ HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES; OR (D) ANY DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID BY YOU TO CJ FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY. THESE LIMITATIONS ARE INDEPENDENT FROM ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY REMEDY PROVIDED HEREIN. 

Indemnification
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Colette Jaffe, its affiliates and their employees, contractors, officers, directors and representatives from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including attorneys' fees, resulting from: (i) your use of the Website; (ii) your breach of any provision of these Terms of Use; (iii) the illegality, reliability, appropriateness, originality or copyright of any submission to us; and/or (iv) any intentional wrongdoing by you. CJ reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will assist and cooperate with CJ in asserting any available defenses.

International Use
CJ makes no representation that the Content is appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing the Website is prohibited from territories where such Content is illegal. If you access the Website from other locations, you do so at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.

Dispute Resolution 
You recognize that, although the Internet can be accessed from anywhere in the world, the Website is located in the State of Minnesota, United States of America, and that when you access the Website, you are doing so in the State of Minnesota, United States of America. These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal substantive laws of the State of Minnesota without giving effect to any principles of conflict of law and the federal laws of the United States of America. 

You and we agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Website, these Terms of Use or with respect to our products and services, shall be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court. By agreeing to arbitration, you waive your right to have a judge or jury decide the dispute; arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Use, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Use.  The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms of Use, and will be administered by the AAA. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms of Use. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision.

YOU AND WE 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. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.

You and CJ agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Website must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.  These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota, excluding its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America. You expressly agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or action arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or your use of this Website shall be in Minnesota, USA, and you further agree and submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts of Minnesota, USA. Use of the Website is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms of Use, including without limitation, this section.

Integration and Severability
These Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy and any web pages, CJ policies or other documents incorporated by reference, are the entire agreement between you and CJ with respect use of this Website, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and CJ with respect to this Website (but excluding the use of any software which may be subject to a separate CJ end-user license agreement). NOTHING IN THESE TERMS OF USE SHALL AFFECT ANY NON-WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT APPLY TO YOU.  If any provision of the Terms of Use is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms of Use will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

Miscellaneous 
These Terms of Use are personal to you, and are not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with CJ's prior written consent. CJ may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights and obligations hereunder without consent. All waivers and modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of this Agreement and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. Except as otherwise provided herein, all notices under this Agreement will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or e-mail; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service.
