NO OPINION, ADVICE OR STATEMENT OF P+PB OR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS, SPONSORS, AGENTS, MEMBERS OR VISITORS, WHETHER MADE ON THE PLATFORM, IN THE MATERIALS, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THE TERMS.
BECAUSE SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW CERTAIN DISCLAIMERS, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER P+PB NOR ANY OF ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS OR SPONSORS, NOR ITS OR THEIR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONSULTANTS, AGENTS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES, ARE OR WILL BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF DATA, LOST REVENUES OR LOST PROFITS), UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE PLATFORM, THE SUBMISSIONS, ANY LINKED SITES OR ANY CODE, MATERIALS, PRODUCT OR SERVICE LICENSED, ACCESSIBLE OR USABLE THROUGH THE PLATFORM, EVEN IF P+PB HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.

THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS SECTION 23 SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.
NO COMMUNICATION OF ANY KIND BETWEEN YOU AND P+PB OR A REPRESENTATIVE OF P+PB CONSTITUTES A WAIVER OF ANY LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY HEREUNDER. MULTIPLE CLAIMS WILL NOT INCREASE THE MONETARY DAMAGES LIMIT STATED HEREIN.
If you are a resident of a jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding release, then the following applies. FOR EXAMPLE, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST, AS A CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WAIVE THE APPLICABILITY OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR 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.”

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless P+PB, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors, suppliers, advertisers and sponsors, and its and their directors, officers, employees, consultants, agents and other representatives, from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) and other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from: (a) any allegation that any Submission or other information you post, submit to P+PB or transmit to the Platform infringes or otherwise violates the copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property or other right of any third party; (b) your breach or violation of the Terms, including the Codes, or any applicable laws or regulations; (c) your access to and use of the Platform, the Materials, or Submissions; (d) any viruses, spyware, or other similar harmful or intrusive program code posted, submitted or transmitted by you to the Platform or to P+PB; and/or (e) any claim that one of your postings, User Ideas or Submissions caused damage to a third party, including without limitation, libel, defamation, loss of or harm to reputation or any other damage whatsoever.

Any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the Terms, use of the Platform, your Account, and/or your Submissions (collectively, “Disputes”) must be filed within one year after such Dispute arose regardless of any statutes or law to the contrary. In the event any Dispute is not filed within such one-year period, such Dispute is forever barred.
The Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without regards to its principles of conflicts of law that would require the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.

A party electing such arbitration shall initiate proceedings by filing an arbitration demand with the American Arbitration Association (AAA). The arbitration proceedings shall be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer-Related Disputes (see www.adr.org for more information). In addition, you and P+PB agree that the following rules shall apply to the arbitration proceedings: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Any Disputes involving a claim for more than $5,000 shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration pursuant to the substantive and procedural provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). The arbitration shall be initiated and conducted according to the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer-Related Disputes (see www.adr.org for more information), except as modified herein. The arbitration shall be conducted in Fairfax County, Virginia before a single, neutral arbitrator appointed in accordance with the arbitration rules cited herein, and whose decision will be final, except for a limited right to appeal under the FAA. The arbitrator shall have the authority to hear and grant motions to dismiss and/or motions for summary judgement, and shall issue written opinions resolving such motions, if submitted. The arbitrator will provide a detailed written statement of the final decision, which will be part of the arbitration award and admissible in any judicial proceeding to confirm, correct or vacate the award. If either party refuses to perform any or all of its obligations under the final arbitration award (following, appeal, if applicable) within thirty (30) days of such award being rendered, then the other party will have the right to enforce the final award in any court of competent jurisdiction in Fairfax County, Virginia. The party seeking enforcement shall be entitled to an award of all costs, fees, and expenses, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees. The parties shall use reasonable efforts to maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding.
If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, P+PB will pay all other AAA and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
