To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, this feature is provided on an “As Is” and “As Available” basis without any guarantee or warranty of any kind by us.
Fees do not include Taxes (as defined below), unless expressly indicated otherwise by us on an invoice. If any Lavu Products, or payments for any Lavu Products, under this Agreement are subject to Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Tax to us, you will be responsible for the payment of such Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority.

If you qualify for and obtain financing from one of our Financing Partners under our Financing Program, you will not have to pay us directly for the applicable Fees that were covered by the Financing Program during the designated term or rental or subscription period in your order with us. However, you will have to pay the Financing Partner in accordance with your separate agreement(s) with the Financing Partner, and the Financing Partner will have to pay us in accordance with our agreement with them. Your obligation to pay the Financing Partner is independent from these Terms of Service and survives any termination or expiration of this Agreement or these Terms of Service. Financing Partners are independent from us and we are not responsible for such Financing Partners and Financing Partners are not responsible for us.
By providing a credit card or other payment method, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to immediately charge your credit card or other payment method for all fees and charges due and payable to us hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required.

However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to immediately charge your credit card or payment method at the beginning of your initial subscription period, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period.
You acknowledge and agree that we will charge all applicable fees and charges due to the credit card or other form of non-invoice payment method that you provided to us upon order placement and prior to shipment of any Lavu Products.

No Warranties or Liability for Beta-Testing of New Lavu/Sourcery Offerings
From time to time, we may request, and you may agree (at your sole discretion) to beta-test new Lavu Products that we intend to release (each, a “New Offering”). During the period when you are beta-testing a New Offering, you agree to: (i) Utilize the New Offering in the same manner in which you have used previous Lavu Products from us; (ii) Promptly notify us of any operational or other issues arising out of or related to your usage of the New Offering; and (iii) Make members of your staff reasonably available to assist us in trouble-shooting any operational, reporting, processing or other issues with a New Offering. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable to you, your customers or other third-parties for consequential, exemplary, incidental, direct or indirect damages (including legal fees and expenses or cost of replacement) or loss of profits, data, goodwill or opportunities in connection with your beta-testing of a New Offering.
You further acknowledge and agree that there are no warranties (express, implied or statutory), including, without limitation, all warranties of merchantabilty, fitness for a particular purpose and any warranties arising from course of performance and that we do not warrant that any New Offering will be error-free, uninterrupted, virus-free or secure.
By agreeing to beta-test a New Offering, you fully and forever release and discharge us, all predecessors and successors, subsidiaries, affiliates, assigns, officers, directors, trustees, executives, agents and attorneys (past and present) from any and all claims, demands, liens, agreements, contracts, covenants, actions, suits, causes of action, obligations, controversies, debts, costs, expenses, damages, judgments, orders and liabilities, of whatever kind or nature, direct or indirect, in law, equity or otherwise, whether known or unknown, arising out of or related to your beta-testing of such New Offering.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without our prior written consent, but may be assigned by us without restriction and without your consent. Any assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
Disputes & Arbitration
In the event that a dispute arises, you agree that you will contact our support department to give us the opportunity to resolve the dispute. Either party may request arbitration if your dispute cannot be resolved within 60 days after presenting the dispute to the other party. All disputes that cannot be resolved informally (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Section. This Section applies to you and to us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of Lavu Products or your User Account provided under this Agreement.
The arbitration of any Dispute shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association and conducted in accordance with the then current and applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association as modified by this Agreement. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. The arbitration hearing will be held in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, and unless the parties jointly agree otherwise. If you reside outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearing.
The arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what this agreement provides, order consolidation or arbitration on a class wide or representative basis, award punitive or consequential damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages, or order injunctive or declaratory relief, except that the arbitrator may award on an individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you, nor us nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award. If any portion of this Section is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the American Arbitration Association.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect our confidential information and intellectual property rights in any court of competent jurisdiction.
ALL DISPUTES MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, INSTEAD ELECTING THAT ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES SHALL BE RESOLVED BY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS SECTION. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE TYPICALLY MORE LIMITED, MORE EFFICIENT AND LESS COSTLY THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN A COURT AND ARE SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. IN THE EVENT ANY LITIGATION SHOULD ARISE BETWEEN YOU AND LAVU IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN A SUIT TO VACATE OR ENFORCE AN ARBITRATION AWARD OR OTHERWISE, YOU AND LAVU/SOURCERY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, INSTEAD ELECTING THAT THE DISPUTE BE RESOLVED BY A JUDGE. IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE THIS AGREEMENT PERMITS THE PARTIES TO LITIGATE IN COURT, THE PARTIES HEREBY AGREE TO SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS LOCATED WITHIN BERNALILLO COUNTY, NEW MEXICO, FOR SUCH PURPOSE AND WAIVE ANY ARGUMENTS FOR FORUM NON CONVIENS.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Mexico, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without regard to conflict of law principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
