LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL ROW 7, ITS AFFILIATES, OR THEIR LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, OR DIRECTORS (COLLECTIVELY, “ROW 7 PARTIES”) BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE OUR SERVICES, OR THE PRODUCT GENERALLY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA, OR COSTS OF REPLACEMENT GOODS, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.
In no event will any rOW 7 indemnitee be liable to you for any claims, proceedings, liabilities, obligations, damages, losses, or costs in an amount exceeding the Lesser of the amount you paid to us hereunder or one hundred U.S. Dollars ($100.00). This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damage.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of and/or limitations on incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusions and/or limitations may not apply to you. These terms of Service give you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, and such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services, or by canceling your registration (as applicable) and ceasing to use our Services. Your access to and use of our Services may be terminated by us at any time, for any reason, without notice to you.

GOVERNING LAW & JURISDICTION
These Terms of Service, and any associated transaction, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without reference to its conflict of laws principles. Any cause of action or claim you may have against any Row 7 Party must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. You and Row 7 agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts of New York to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy relating to these Terms of Service (or any associated transaction), except that Row 7 may seek injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction without posting any bond or other security. YOU AND ROW 7 AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
READ THIS SECTION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US. This Arbitration Agreement applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and us that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (a) these Terms of Service, including the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, and enforceability thereof; (b) access to or use of our Services or Product, including receipt of any advertising or marketing communications; (c) any transactions through, by, or using our Services; or (d) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with us, directly or indirectly, as a user or consumer (each, a “Claim,” and, collectively, “Claims”). This Arbitration Agreement will apply, without limitation, to all Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your consent to these Terms of Service.
If you are a new user, you can reject and opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within thirty (30) days of accepting these Terms of Service by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full, legal name and stating your intent to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement does not affect the binding nature of any other part of these Terms of Service, including the provisions regarding controlling law or the courts in which any disputes must be brought.
For any Claim, you will first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the Claim with us informally. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a Claim after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve such Claim exclusively through binding arbitration by JAMS before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”), under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS (the “Rules”), except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com, where the Rules are available. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement will control. The arbitration will be conducted in the U.S. county where you live (if applicable) or Westchester County, New York, unless you and Row 7 agree otherwise. If you are using our Services for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing and administrative fees and Arbitrator fees in accordance with the Rules, and the award rendered by the Arbitrator will include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using our Services for non-commercial purposes: (x) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (y) the award rendered by the Arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorneys’ fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (z) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this would not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the Arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and we agree that the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the scope, interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator will also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether these Terms of Service are, or whether any provision of these Terms of Service is, unconscionable or illusory, and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, and/or estoppel.
NOTHING IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WILL BE DEEMED AS: PREVENTING US FROM SEEKING INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FROM THE COURTS AS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ACTUAL OR THREATENED INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION, OR VIOLATION OF OUR DATA SECURITY, CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS; OR PREVENTING YOU FROM ASSERTING CLAIMS IN A SMALL CLAIMS COURT, PROVIDED THAT YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY AND SO LONG AS THE MATTER REMAINS IN SUCH COURT AND ADVANCES ON ONLY AN INDIVIDUAL (NON-CLASS, NON-COLLECTIVE, AND NON-REPRESENTATIVE) BASIS.
If this Arbitration Agreement is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, will be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, will have no impact on the remaining provisions of this Arbitration Agreement, which will remain in force, or on the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining Claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver below is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, because it would prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief, then any dispute regarding the entitlement to such relief (and only that relief) must be severed from arbitration and may be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction. All other claims for relief subject to arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement will be arbitrated under its terms, and the parties agree that litigation of any dispute regarding the entitlement to public injunctive relief will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER
by entering into these terms of Service, you and row 7 are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to bring, join, or participate in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind as a plaintiff or class member. the foregoing applies to all users (both natual persons and entities), regardless of whether you have obtained or used our services for personal, commercial, or other purposes. This class action/jury trial waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the Arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s or entity’s claims. You and Row 7 agree that the Arbitrator may award relief only to an individual claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief on your individual claim(s). Any relief awarded may not affect other users.

You may not assign these Terms of Service or any of your rights or obligations hereunder. The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

We generally do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer customer information to outside parties unless we provide you with advance notice. However, we may disclose customer information as described below:
- Participating Businesses We Do Not Control: When a business is involved in your transactions, we may share customer information related to those transactions with that business.

Our store is hosted by Shopify. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a reasonably secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data, encrypting it through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Under those circumstances, your purchase transaction data is stored by Shopify only as long as is reasonably necessary to complete your purchase transaction.
The direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help reasonably ensure the secure handling of credit card information with respect to such purchases from our store. For more insight, you can also read Shopify’s Terms of Service or Privacy Statement.
Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your information will be handled.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from the Service. We are not responsible for the content or practices of third-party websites or applications, and we encourage you to read their privacy policies.
DO NOT TRACK (DNT) SIGNALS
Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals other than cookies, we do not currently respond to, or provide users with a different Service experience based on, undefined “DNT” signals to our website.
We take reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information against unauthorized use, access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personally identifiable information during its transmission or storage, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password or account. Be sure to sign off when you are finished using the Service.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies, through your browser settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn off cookies, certain features and functionality of the Service might not be available to you or might not function properly.

By using the Service or providing us with your customer information, you consent to this transfer. In addition, if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

We do not knowingly intend to collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may send an email message to email@example.com with “Request for Child Information Removal” on the subject line and the name and age of the child in the body of the message.
