Some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on how long an implied warranty may last. In the event the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations contained in this Agreement shall be determined by a court to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provisions shall be reformed to the maximum limitation permitted by applicable law. To the extent permissible, any implied warranties are limited to 90 days.
Limitation of Liability
You expressly agree to waive and hereby waive, such agreement and waiver being an essential part of this Agreement, any and all claims and liabilities against HAUS+ that arise from your use of the Site, the Services, content, or products in violation of any federal, state or local laws or regulations.
Under no circumstances, shall HAUS+, its affiliates, or any of their officers, directors, shareholders, members, employees, agents, or contractors be liable for any direct or indirect losses or damages arising out of or in connection with the use of or inability to use the Site or any content or services related to the Site.
This is a comprehensive limitation of liability that applies to all losses and damages of any kind (whether general, special, consequential, incidental, exemplary or otherwise, including loss of data, income or profits), whether in contract, negligence, gross negligence, or other tortuous action, even if an authorized representative of HAUS+ has been advised of or should have known of the possibility of such damages.
If you are dissatisfied with the Site, the Services, any content on the Site or the Services, or with this Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site, Services, or content. You acknowledge, by your use of the Site or the Services, that such usage is at your sole risk and you accept the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement, including the limitation of liability and disclaimers set forth herein.
Some states or jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages. In the event the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages contained in this Agreement shall be determined by a court to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provisions shall be reformed to the maximum limitation permitted by applicable law. In any event, the total maximum aggregate liability under this Agreement or the use or exploitation of any or all parts of the Site, content, or the Services in any manner whatsoever shall be limited to one hundred dollars ($100.00).
This limitation of liability may be different in connection with specific products and services offered by HAUS+.

Except as regarding any action seeking equitable relief, including for the purpose of protecting HAUS+’s confidential information and/or intellectual property rights, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the use of the Site or Services, shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules, in effect at the time the proceedings begin, of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be held in Marin County, California.
Each party shall bear the burden of its own counsel fees incurred in connection with any arbitration proceedings. Judgment upon the award returned by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties or their assets or application of enforcement, as the case may be. Any award by the arbitrator shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties. The parties hereby waive all rights to judicial review of the arbitrator’s decision and any award contained therein.
No Professional Advice
The information available on the Site or through the Services is intended to be a general information resource regarding the matters covered, and is not tailored to your specific circumstance. It is not professional advice, and should not be construed as such.
Accounts and Security
HAUS+ may offer a registered user account to its users. You are responsible for any use of the Site or Services or other activity that occurs through the use of your account, including without limitation any use of your account by any other third party.
As part of the registration process, each user will select, at a minimum, a password and login name. You shall provide HAUS+ with accurate, complete, and updated account information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of your account. You may not: (i) select or use a login name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; (ii) use a name subject to the rights of any other person without authorization; or (iii) use a login name that HAUS+, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate or offensive. You shall immediately notify HAUS+ of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password. You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity may be grounds for termination of your account, at HAUS+’s sole discretion, and you may be reported to appropriate law-enforcement agencies.
Digital Millennium Copyright Act
HAUS+ respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects our users to do the same. HAUS+ investigates notices of copyright infringement and takes appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c), as follows:
For purposes of providing written notice under the DMCA, HAUS+ has designated an agent with the United States Copyright Office (“Copyright Agent”). All written notification, pursuant to the DMCA, must be submitted to the designated Copyright Agent at the following address:
DMCA Complaints Email: email@example.com
If you are a copyright owner or agent thereof and believe that third-party submitted content or materials, including photographs and digital images (each a “Third-Party Submission”), available through this Site infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit written notification, pursuant to the DMCA, to HAUS+’s Copyright Agent, identified above. To be effective, the written notification must include:
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit HAUS+ to locate the material;
information reasonably sufficient to permit HAUS+ to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address at which the complaining party may be contacted; and
a statement that the complaining party has 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; and a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If you believe that your Third-Party Submission, which was removed (or to which access was disabled), is not infringing, or that you have authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent or authority under the law, to publish or use the Third-Party Submission, you may submit a written counter-notice, pursuant to the DMCA, to HAUS+’s Copyright Agent, identified above. To be effective, the written counter-notice must include:
Your physical or electronic signature;
identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or Marin County, State of California, if your address is outside of the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person, or the person’s agent, who provided notification of the alleged copyright infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by HAUS+’s Copyright Agent, HAUS+ may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party (or agent thereof) informing that person that HAUS+ may replace the removed Third-Party Submission or cease disabling it in ten business days. Unless the copyright owner (or agent thereof) files an action seeking a court order against the provider of the Third-Party Submission, the removed Third-Party Submission may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at HAUS+’s sole discretion.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing, or that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or identification, will be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer, by any copyright owner or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or by a service provider (such as or including HAUS+), who is injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of the service provider relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing, or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it. Accordingly, if you are uncertain whether Third-Party Submission infringes your or others’ copyrights, please consult with a copyright attorney prior to making a notice under the DMCA.

(c) Headings. Descriptive headings contained in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not control or affect the meaning or construction of any of this Agreement.

(f) Language of this Agreement. Although this Agreement may be translated into other languages, the English language version of this Agreement shall control in any dispute between the parties.
