THE SERVICE AND ANY OTHER SERVICE AND CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN AS IS OR AS AVAILABLE BASIS WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. WE DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN) WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE AND CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE SERVICE WHETHER ALLEGED TO ARISE BY OPERATION OF LAW, BY REASON OF CUSTOM OR USAGE IN THE TRADE, BY COURSE OF DEALING OR OTHERWISE.
IN NO EVENT WILL Lau Brothers LLC BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE OR ANY OTHER SERVICE AND/OR CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE SERVICE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR ARE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. OUR TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND UNDER ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO LAU BROTHERS LLC. THIS SECTION WILL BE GIVEN FULL EFFECT EVEN IF ANY REMEDY SPECIFIED IN THIS AGREEMENT IS DEEMED TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any and all costs, damages, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees, costs, penalties, interest and disbursements) we incur in relation to, arising from, or for the purpose of avoiding, any claim or demand from a third party relating to your use of the Service or the use of the Service by any person using your account, including any claim that your use of the Service violates any applicable law or regulation, or the rights of any third party, and/or your violation of these Terms.
Without limiting the foregoing, Baby Art shall have no liability for:
Any adverse effect to your computer, mobile device or other property as a result of your use of the Services, or as a result of any Automatic Content available through the Services;
Your use of (or inability to use) the Services thereof, including without limitation any Automatic Content and any transactions that involve the Services;
Any material available (or intended to be available) on or by means of the Services or information or advice received by means of the Services;
Any error or omission of Baby Art, or any act or omission of any third party;
Any error, delay, interruption, operational problem, unavailability, or failure in the Services, or any directly or indirectly related equipment, system, programming, or network (including the internet);

You and Baby Art agree that, except as provided below, all disputes, controversies and claims related to these Terms (each a “Claim”), shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the terms set forth in these Terms. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth herein and the JAMS Rules, the terms herein will control and prevail.
Except as otherwise set forth herein, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and Baby Art will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, (a) you and Baby Art may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (b) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.
The arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco, California, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances.
You and Baby Art agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between Baby Art and you individually. YOU AND BABY ART AGREE THAT (a) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (b) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (c) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.
Exceptions to Arbitration
You and Baby Art agree that the following Claims are not subject to the above provisions concerning negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Claim seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Baby Art’s intellectual property rights; (b) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for equitable relief. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.
If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS arbitration initiation fee. If Baby Art initiates arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules.
If you breach any of these Terms, we have the right to suspend or disable your access to or use of the Service.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Lau Brothers LLC regarding the use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Lau Brothers LLC relating to your use of the Service.
You and Baby Art agree that if any of the arbitration provisions are found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion under the “Exceptions to Arbitration” section), only those provisions that are found illegal or unenforceable shall be severed and the remainder of the provision shall be given full force and effect. If the provisions under the “Exceptions to Arbitration” section are found to be illegal or unenforceable then neither you nor Baby Art will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within those provisions found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the County of San Francisco, California, and you and Baby Art agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
When you provide us with any feedback, comments or suggestions about the Service, these Terms and, in general, apps and services provided by Lau Brothers LLC, you irrevocably assign to us all of your right, title and interest in and to your feedback, comments and suggestions.
