IMPORTANT NOTE: THESE TERMS CONTAIN PROVISIONS THAT LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU AND REQUIRE YOU TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH US THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE, AND YOU WAIVE, THE RIGHT FOR A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS, IF ANY, AND THAT YOU MAY NOT PROCEED IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. Please see “DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES & LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY” (Section 14) and “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” (Section 16) below for more information.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY PART OF THESE TERMS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITES.

We will notify you of any material change by posting notice on this webpage. Whenever possible, we will notify you in advance of our changes. We do not make changes that have retroactive effect unless we are legally required to do so.
Your continued use of the Sites after the effective date constitutes your acceptance of the amended Terms. The amended Terms supersede all previous versions of the Terms. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms any time you access or use the Sites and to print out a copy of these Terms for your records.
Certain services offered by or through the Sites, such as mobile applications, sweepstakes, offers contests and other services, may be governed by additional terms and conditions presented in conjunction with them. You must agree to the additional terms before using such services. These Terms and any additional terms will apply equally. If any additional term is irrevocably inconsistent with any provision of these Terms, the additional term will prevail.
You must register for a User Account to order the Product(s). As part of any such registration process, you will select a user name and a password. You agree that the information you supply during that registration process will be accurate and complete. You also agree not to (i) select, register, or attempt to register, or use a user name of another person with the intention of impersonating that person; (ii) use a user name of anyone else without authorization; (iii) use a user name in violation of the intellectual property rights of any person; or (iv) use a user name that Puppo considers to be offensive.

On certain occasions, Puppo may offer free trials of its Products. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of the free trial will be stated in the marketing materials describing the free trial. If you do not cancel your subscription within the free trial period, we will begin charging your payment card subscription fees once your free trial period ends. You may cancel your membership anytime by logging into your account or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use a third party payment service in lieu of directly processing your credit card information. By submitting your credit card information, you grant Puppo the right to store and process your information with the third party payment service, which it may change from time to time; you agree that Puppo will not be responsible for any failures of the third party to adequately protect such information. All financial matters regarding your information are subject to the conditions of the third party payment service provider's terms of service. You acknowledge that we may change the third party payment service from time to time.
Unless otherwise indicated at the time of your purchase, shipping and handling fees are included with your order.

Shipping dates and/or arrival times are only estimates. For loss/damage claims, you must notify Puppo within 30 days of the date of your purchase if you believe all or part of your order is missing or damaged. Repeated claims of undelivered merchandise may result in the cancellation of your membership.
If you believe a Product is defective or has been delivered in error, please contact us at email@example.com.

In other words, Puppo has the automatic right to use your Submissions -- including reproducing, disclosing, publishing or broadcasting your Submission -- anywhere, anytime, in any medium and for any purpose. Under no circumstances are you entitled to payment if Puppo uses one for your Submissions. All Submissions are deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary.
You are responsible for the content of your Submissions. By posting a Submission, you represent and warrant that:
You acknowledge and agree that Puppo has the right (but not the obligation) to alter, remove or refuse to post or allow to be posted any Submission. Puppo takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Submission posted by you or any third party.

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED ABOVE, THE PUPPO PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. Puppo 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. Puppo does not warrant that (a) the Sites will meet your requirements, (b) operation of the Sites will be uninterrupted or virus- or error-free or (c) errors will be corrected. Any oral or written advice provided by Puppo 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.

YOU AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT WILL PUPPO 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 PUPPO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE OR (Z) FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM, DEMAND OR DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE PUPPO SERVICES.
The foregoing disclaimer of liability will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law in the jurisdiction of your place of residence. You acknowledge and agree that the above limitations of liability together with the other provisions in these Terms that limit liability are essential terms and that Puppo would not be willing to grant you the rights set forth in these Terms but for your agreement to the above limitations of liability.
LEGAL NOTICE FOR NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS: The limitations of liability and exclusion of damages in this section do not apply to New Jersey residents.
You agree to indemnify and defend Puppo, and its Owner, directors, officers, employees and agents from and against all losses, liabilities, actual or pending claims, actions, damages, expenses, costs of defense and reasonable attorneys’ fees brought against Puppo by any third-party arising from your violation of these Terms, the rights of a third-party or applicable law. Puppo reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification hereunder. In any event, no settlement that affects the rights or obligations of Puppo may be made without Puppo’s’ prior written approval.
These Terms are governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws of such state, and are binding upon the parties hereto in the United States and worldwide. You and Puppo agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the interpretation or construction of these Terms.
YOU AND PUPPO AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION IN THE MANNER SPECIFIED IN THIS SECTION 10 AND THAT YOU AND PUPPO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING SUCH CLAIMS BEFORE ANY COURT OF LAW.
YOU AND PUPPO FURTHER AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Any dispute between you and Puppo Parties arising from or relating to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms, including Covered Disputes will be settled by binding arbitration in the U.S. State of New York administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules in effect on the date thereof.
Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60 days' advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Puppo will provide such notice by mail or e-mail using the contact information on file with Puppo and you must provide such notice by mail to Puppo, Attn: Legal Department, 220 NW 8th Ave, Portland, OR 97209.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be cost-prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, Puppo will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Puppo for all fees associated with the arbitration that Puppo paid on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.
A single arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. The arbitrator’s decision must be with written explanation and remain confidential.
Puppo and you agree that any Covered Dispute will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither Puppo nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private-attorney action and the arbitrator will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section 18 is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration). Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes of this Section 18, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
Please Note: By agreeing to these Terms, you explicitly agree that any claims or actions that you may otherwise have against Puppo under the laws of any jurisdiction outside the United States are hereby waived, including without limitation, any claims or actions under the laws of your own country, and that your sole location and applicable law for any dispute is in the United States according to the terms of this Section 18.
LEGAL NOTICE TO NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS: The provisions in this section that (i) limit the period of time within which a claim may be asserted against Puppo and (2) exclude certain damages do not apply to New Jersey residents.
These Terms automatically terminate when you fail to comply with any term or condition of them. Puppo may terminate or modify your access to the Sites, with or without notice to you, at any time for any reason. For example, access to the Sites may be denied without notice if Puppo believes that you are not at least age 13.
Termination will not limit any of Puppo’s other rights or remedies. This Section 17, along with Sections 9, 14, 15, and 16, survive termination of these Terms.
