6. Personal Information

Please make sure that you carefully read our Privacy Policy to learn about personal information that Valio collects on the Site and how we process it. Without limiting the terms of our Privacy Policy, you understand that Valio does not and cannot guarantee that your use of the Site and/or the information provided by you through the Site will be private or secure. You are responsible for using the precautions and security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the Site. Valio reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as Valio deems necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

7. Warranty Disclaimer & Limitation of Liability

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED ABOVE, THE SITE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. Valio specifically disclaims all warranties and conditions of any kind, including all implied warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, freedom from defects, uninterrupted use and all warranties implied from any course of dealing or usage of trade. Valio does not warrant that (a) the Site will meet your requirements, (b) operation of the Site will be uninterrupted or virus- or error-free or (c) errors will be corrected. Any oral or written advice provided by Valio or its authorized agents does not and will not create any warranty. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHICH MEANS THAT SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

YOUR USE OF THE SITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

YOU AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT WILL VALIO BE LIABLE (Y) FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, LOSS OF USE, DATA OR PROFITS OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION), HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER ARISING IN ANY WAY IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE), EVEN IF VALIO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM, DEMAND OR DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE VALIO SERVICES.

IF ANY PORTION OF THIS LIMITATION IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN VALIO’S TOTAL LIABILITY WILL BE ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS (US $100).

8. Indemnification

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS VALIO FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, THREATS, SUITS OR PROCEEDINGS AND PAY ALL RESULTING LOSSES, LIABILITIES, DAMAGES, COSTS OR EXPENSES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND EXPENSES) ARISING OUT OF, RESULTING FROM, OR RELATED TO YOUR BREACH OF THESE TERMS AND/OR YOUR ACCESS TO, USE, OR MISUSE OF THE SITE. Valio reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter which is subject to indemnification under this section. In such case, you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting Valio’s defense of such matter.

9. Arbitration Clause and Class Action Waiver

IMPORTANT- Please Review As This Affects Your Legal Rights.

YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND VALIO (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH VALIO, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE SITE, THE VALIO CONTENT, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION'S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. Neither you nor Valio will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST VALIO INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if Valio is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state, provincial or other law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either you or Valio can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.

If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Valio.

10. Termination

Valio reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate these Terms and your access to all or any part of the Site at any time and for any reason or no reason without prior notice or liability. Valio reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue all or any part of the Site or Valio Content at any time without prior notice or liability. All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, the License, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, class action waivers and arbitration.

11. Governing law; Legal Jurisdiction

If you make any claim against Valio, you agree in advance that in the event you assert any such claim, it will be governed by the following rules:

These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey, without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. Without waiving the foregoing arbitration clause, you expressly agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of either the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey or the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey in Morris County (the “Agreed Forums”). To the extent that it may be relevant, you agree that your use of the Site and any transaction arising in connection with such use shall be deemed to have occurred in the State of New Jersey. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable and the other terms of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.

The statute of limitations applicable to any claim other than a claim for personal injuries shall be one (1) year, measured from the date you first visited the Site.

You waive any claim that the Agreed Forums are inconvenient for resolution of disputes and claims you may have and agree to forego any claim to transfer the venue for dispute resolution.

  • (b) These Terms (i) inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon Valio’ and you and your successors and assigns, respectively, and (ii) may be assigned by Valio but you may not assign them without the prior express written consent of Valio.
  • (c) If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unenforceable or invalid, the remaining provisions will continue with the same effect as if such unenforceable or invalid provision had not been inserted herein.
  • (d) If Valio fails or you fail to perform any term hereof and the other party does not enforce such term, the failure to enforce on any occasion will not constitute a waiver of any term and will not prevent enforcement on any other occasion.
  • (e) Nothing contained in these Terms will be deemed to constitute Valio or you as the agent or representative of the other or as joint venturers or partners.
  • (f) If Valio is or you are prevented from performing or unable to perform any obligation under these Terms due to any cause beyond the reasonable control of the party invoking this provision, the affected party's performance will be extended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such occurrence.
  • (g) The headings and captions contained herein are for convenience only.
  • (h) These Terms and all related documentation will be drafted in English. While certain text in these Terms may be made available in languages other than English (whether translated by a person or solely by computer software), the English language version controls.
