POTTLE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE WEBSITE INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY PURPOSE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, COMPATIBILITY, SECURITY AND ACCURACY, AND ALL WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE.

POTTLE DOES NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILTY FOR ANY INFORMATION, PRODUCT PROVIDED, ADVERTISED OR OFFERED BY A THIRD PARTY THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR ANY LINKED SITE AND POTTLE WILL NOT BE A PARTY TO OR IN ANY WAY MONITOR ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND ANY LINKED SITE.

Indemnity and Release

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Pottle and its affiliates, licensors, licensees, successors and assigns and each of their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, service providers and partners (“Indemnified Parties”), from and against any demands, losses, liabilities, claims or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) made against Pottle by any third party due to or arising out of or in connection with any breach by you of these Terms of Use, your violation of any third party right and your use of and access to the Website or any element or component thereof.

Without limiting anything set out above, you hereby release each of the Indemnified Parties from all damages, liabilities, claims, actions, demands and costs of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy and/or any use by you of the Website.

California residents, you expressly waive CA Civil Code §1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms of Use and any dispute that may arise between you and Pottle shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law and the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction). DISPUTES ARISING FROM THESE TERMS OF USE AND YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION AS PROVIDED BELOW. BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU ARE HEREBY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO BRING DISPUTES TO A COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. 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. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION YOU MAY HAVE WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER THE CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES.

Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

In the event of any dispute between you and us regarding these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, the Website and/or any products or services purchased from the Website, you and Pottle agree to first send the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement setting forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute by e-mail to pottleposse@gmail.com . We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and Pottle will attempt to resolve any dispute through informal negotiation within 30 days from the date that the notice of dispute is sent. If we are unable to resolve a dispute by negotiation, you agree that disputes must be resolved through binding arbitration rather than by a court, provided that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms of Use. There is no judge or jury in arbitration and court review of an arbitration award is limited. It is important that you understand that the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to us at pottleposse@gmail.com  with “Arbitration Request” in the subject line. You may also contact us by mail at:

Pottle/ND Inc.
618 N. Hayworth, Suite 9
Los Angles, CA 90048
Attention: Legal

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, we 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.

You agree to arbitrate with Pottle only in your individual capacity and not as a representative or member of a class or in any consolidated or representative proceeding. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there shall be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or brought by a purported class representative. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration. For certain claims, like violations of these Terms of Use or breaches of intellectual property covenants, we reserve the right to seek injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction. All arbitrations shall be initiated in California County, California.

Waiver and Severability

No waiver by Pottle of any term or condition set forth in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition and any failure of Pottle to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.

Assignment

These Terms of Use and any rights and licenses granted hereunder may not be transferred or assigned by you. We may assign our rights under these Terms of Use without restriction.

Entire Agreement

These Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy and the other agreements referred to herein constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and Pottle with respect to the Website and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to the Website.

If you have questions regarding these Terms of Use, please consult an attorney.

It is our goal to provide you with a first class user experience, so if you have any questions or comments about these Terms of Use, please feel free to contact us by e-mail at pottleposse@gmail.com.
