9.1. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL FERTILITY4ME OR ITS SUPPLIERS OR VENDORS, OR ITS OR THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, VENDORS, LICENSORS, CO-BRANDERS OR PARTNERS (COLLECTIVELY, "FERTILITY4ME PARTIES") BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM ANY INJURY, DAMAGE TO ANY PERSON OR PROPERTY, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LITIGATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE, OPERATION, PERFORMANCE OR ANY OTHER MATTER RELATED TO THE WEBSITE, THE SERVICES, THE CONTENT, ANY EXTERNAL PLATFORM OR ANY PARTNER OFFER OR RELATED PRODUCT, SERVICE OR OTHER GOODS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE, SERVICES, OR CONTENT, ANY DEFECTS IN THE WEBSITE, SERVICES, OR CONTENT, OR WITH THE FAILURE TO MAKE AVAILABLE, ANY SERVICES, INFORMATION, MATERIALS, CONTENT, SERVICES, PARTNER OFFERS, EXTERNAL PLATFORMS OR OTHER RESOURCES AVAILABLE ON OR ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE WEBSITE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

THE OPERATION OF THE WEBSITE AND THE SERVICE, WHETHER BY FERTILITY4ME, ITS SUPPLIERS OR ITS VENDORS, MAY NOT BE SECURE. SECURITY AND PRIVACY RISKS CANNOT BE ELIMINATED.
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH FERTILITY4ME PARTNERS. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, YOU HEREBY RELEASE FERTILITY4ME FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR LIABILITY (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, CLAIMS FOR PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, OR DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF PROPERTY) RELATED TO ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE OF A PARTNER, ANY ACTION OR INACTION BY PARTNER, PARTNER’S FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH APPLICABLE LAW, PARTICIPATION IN A PARTNER OFFER, OR USE OR MISUSE OF ANY PARTNER OFFER.
9.3. ANY LIABILITY ON THE PART OF THE FERTILITY4ME PARTIES, IN THE AGGREGATE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY YOU (IF ANY) TO FERTILITY4ME DURING THE TWELVE-MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE CAUSE OF SUCH LIABILITY.
9.4. You acknowledge and agree that the limitations set forth above are fundamental elements of these Terms and any agreement formed between you and FERTILITY4ME pursuant to them and none of the Website, Services, Content or Partner Offers would be provided to you absent such limitations.
9.5. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, THE LIABILITY OF THE FERTILITY4ME PARTIES SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. NOTHING IN THESE TERMS AFFECTS ANY LEGAL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES YOU HAVE UNDER LOCAL LAW. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, IN PART: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR THE RELEASED PARTY".

We shall provide notice to you of any such claim, suit, or proceeding that triggers this indemnification obligation, and you agree to do the same by writing to the FERTILITY4ME at firstname.lastname@example.org. We reserve 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 our defense of such matter.
11. ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
11.1. YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR THE WEBSITE, SERVICES, CONTENT, ANY EXTERNAL PLATFORMS, ANY PARTNER OFFERS OR RELATED PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR OTHER GOODS, AND/OR ANY 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; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU HAVE IN ANY MANNER VIOLATED OR THREATENED TO VIOLATE OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, WE MAY SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER APPROPRIATE RELIEF IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK. 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.
11.2. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate.
11.3. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US 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 access to, use of or other matter or matters related to the Website, Services or Content, any External Platforms, any Partner Offers or related products, services or other goods, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state 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 we or you 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. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with these Terms, the Website, Services or Content, any External Platforms, any Partner Offers or related products, services or other goods, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
11.4. 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 Section 11 will be null and void. This agreement to arbitration will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
12. YOUR COMPLIANCE WITH APPLICABLE LAWS. You are solely responsible for ensuring compliance with the laws of your specific jurisdiction and for abiding by all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations. In addition, you expressly acknowledge that the United States controls the export of products and information and agree to comply with such restrictions and not to export or re-export any of the Content to countries or persons prohibited under the export control laws. By accessing, using or downloading the Website, Services or Content, you are expressly agreeing that you are not in a country where such export is prohibited or are a person or entity for which such export is prohibited. You are solely responsible for compliance with the laws of your specific jurisdiction regarding the import, export, or re-export of the Website, Services or Content.
14. NOTICES. We may provide notices hereunder to you by: (i) email; (ii) regular mail; or (iii) posting them on the Website. You shall be responsible for ensuring that you have provided us with your current email and mailing addresses. You can contact us at any time by any of the following means: (a) by personal delivery, overnight courier, or registered or certified mail to Fertility for Me, Inc, 233 West 21st St., Apt 3B, New York, NY 10011, or (b) by email to email@example.com.

15. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT MATTERS.
15.1. Our policy is to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). Copyright-infringing materials found on the Website can be identified and removed via our process listed below, and you agree to comply with such process in the event you are involved in any claim of copyright infringement to which the DMCA may be applicable.
15.2. If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide FERTILITY4ME’s copyright agent the written information specified below. Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying FERTILITY4ME that your copyrighted material has been infringed. FERTILITY4ME does not and will not make any legal decisions about the validity of your claim of infringement or the possible defenses to a claim. When a clear and valid notice is received pursuant to the guidelines set forth below, FERTILITY4ME will respond by either taking down the allegedly infringing content or blocking access to it. FERTILITY4ME may contact the notice provider to request additional information. Under the DMCA, FERTILITY4ME is required to take reasonable steps to notify the user who posted the allegedly infringing content ("Alleged Infringer"). The Alleged Infringer is allowed under the law to send FERTILITY4ME a counter-notification. Notices and counter-notices are legal notices distinct from regular Website activities or communications. We may publish or share them with third parties in our sole discretion (in addition to producing them pursuant to a subpoena or other legal discovery request). Anyone making a false or fraudulent notice or counter-notice may be liable for damages under the DMCA, including costs and attorneys’ fees. Any person who is unsure of whether certain material infringes a copyright held by such person or a third party should contact an attorney.
15.3. To file a DMCA notice, the copyright owner must send in a written letter by fax, regular mail, or email only. We reserve the right to ignore a notice that is not in compliance with the DMCA, and we may, but are not obligated to, respond to a non-compliant notice. A DMCA notice must:
● Identify specifically the copyrighted work(s) believed to have been infringed (for example, "My copyrighted work is the picture that appears at [list location where material is located].");
● Identify the Content that a copyright owner claims is infringing upon copyrighted work. The copyright owner must provide information reasonably sufficient to enable us to locate the item on the Website. The copyright owner should provide clear screenshots of the allegedly infringing materials for identification purposes only. The information provided should be as detailed as possible;
● Provide information sufficient to permit us to contact the copyright owner directly: name, street address, telephone number, and email (if available);
● If available, provide information sufficient to permit us to notify the Alleged Infringer (email address preferred);
● Include the following statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law";
● Include the following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed";
● Be signed; and
● Be sent to our DMCA designated agent at the following address:
