LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Vorwerk shall have no responsibility to provide you access to the Site. You further acknowledge and agree that Vorwerk shall not be liable or responsible for any claim, damage, or loss resulting, directly or indirectly, from a cause beyond Vorwerk’s control, including, but not limited to, offers or promotions made available on the Site, failure of electronic or mechanical equipment or communication lines, telephone or other connection problems, computer viruses, unauthorized access, theft, operator errors, severe weather, earthquakes, or natural disasters, strikes or other labor problems, wars, or governmental restrictions. MOREOVER, YOU AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL VORWERK NOR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES OR THIRD-PARTY CONTENT PROVIDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES RELATING TO OR RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THIS SITE OR ANY OTHER SITE YOU ACCESS THROUGH A LINK FROM THIS SITE OR FROM ANY ACTIONS WE TAKE OR FAIL TO TAKE AS A RESULT OF ELECTRONIC MAIL MESSAGES YOU SEND US, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF VORWERK HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.

You agree to release, discharge, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Vorwerk and its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, third party information providers, licensors, contractors and others involved in the delivery of products, services or information through the Site (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”), arising from, in connection with, or relating to, any breach of this Agreement by you.

This Agreement has been made in and will be construed and enforced solely in accordance with the laws of the State of California, as applied to agreements entered into and completely performed in the State of California without regard to conflicts of laws rules. In the event, and for whatever reason, should the arbitration clause below be inapplicable, then you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in the State of California for purposes of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms. In addition, you acknowledge that any breach, threatened or actual, of this Agreement, which constitutes an unauthorized use of Vorwerk proprietary assets or information, will cause irreparable injury to Vorwerk, such injury would not be quantifiable in monetary damages, and Vorwerk would not have an adequate remedy at law. You therefore agree that Vorwerk shall be entitled, in addition to other available remedies, to seek and be awarded an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction restraining any breach, threatened or actual, of your obligations under any provision of this Agreement. Accordingly, you hereby waive any requirement that Vorwerk post any bond or other security in the event any injunctive or equitable relief is sought by or awarded to Vorwerk to enforce any provision of this Agreement. Any claim you might have against Vorwerk must be brought within two (2) years after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. In addition, you agree to waive any right to a jury trial in connection with any action or litigation in any way arising out of or related to this Agreement. You also acknowledge and agree that any applicable state law implementation of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (including any available remedies or laws) shall not apply to this Agreement and is hereby disclaimed. A printed version of this Agreement and of any related notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent as other documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Please contact Vorwerk if you wish to receive a printed copy of this Agreement. If any part of this Site is contrary to the laws of the jurisdiction from where you are when you access it, the Site is therefore not intended for you, and we require that you not use the Site. Those who choose to access this Site from outside the United States do so on their initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You are responsible for informing yourself of the laws of your jurisdiction and complying with them.
ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE RELATING THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its then-current arbitration rules. If any AAA rule conflicts with this Agreement, Agreement shall control. You can obtain procedures, rules, and fee information from the AAA at www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879. Any participatory arbitration hearing that you attend shall take place in Los Angeles, California. California state law will apply during the arbitration. The judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Unless inconsistent with applicable law, each party shall bear the expense of their respective attorneys’, experts’ and witness fees, regardless of which party prevails in the arbitration.
NO CLASS ACTIONS
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE ON A CONSOLIDATED OR CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT BY AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST VORWERK IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
You have no reasonable expectation of privacy while using the Site because Vorwerk reserves the right to view, monitor, and/or record activity on the Site (in accordance with applicable law) and to comply with government or court appointed authorities when necessary. Actual or attempted unauthorized use of the Site may also result in criminal and/or civil prosecution, including, without limitation, punishment under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 under U.S. federal law. You shall therefore not, nor shall you permit any third party to, disable, circumvent, or otherwise avoid any security device, mechanism, protocol, or procedure established by Vorwerk for use of or with the Site.
We reserve the right at any time, and without notice to you or any third party, to modify, suspend or discontinue any part of the Site. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to impose limits on certain features and services.

Therefore, you are responsible for checking with your mobile carrier to determine if the Mobile Services are available for your mobile devices, what restrictions, if any, may be applicable to your use of the Mobile Services, and how much they will cost you. Nevertheless, all use of the Site and its Mobile Services shall be in accordance with this Agreement.
