11.           Legal Notice for New Jersey Residents

Under the New Jersey Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice ACT (“TCCWNA”), N.J.S.A. 56:12-14 et seq., consumers may not be offered any written contract which includes any provision that violates any clearly established legal right of a consumer, or responsibility of a seller, as established by state or federal law. Consequently, and for the avoidance of doubt, no provision in these Terms shall apply to any consumer in New Jersey if the provision violates any such clearly established legal right or responsibility, including, but not limited to, grounds for redress under or in the event of: (i) a seller’s tortious actions (e.g., negligence, failure to exercise a basic standard of care, failure to avoid creating an unreasonable risk of harm); (ii) the New Jersey Products Liability Act, N.J.S.A. 2A:58C-1, et seq. (i.e., the statutorily imposed duty to refrain from manufacturing and selling dangerous products, with the possibility of punitive damages for violations thereof); (iii) the New Jersey Punitive Damages Act, N.J.S.A. 2A:15-5.9, et seq. (i.e., the statutory right to pursue punitive damages in the event of harm caused by actual malice, wanton and willful disregard, reckless indifference); (iv) the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code (i.e., a comprehensive statutory regime governing the rights and duties of buyers and sellers with respect to contracts for the sale of goods, with the possibility of damages for economic and property harm); and (v) a seller’s failure to reasonably protect against harm arising from certain criminal acts of third parties (e.g., computer hacking and identity theft, as regulated by the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission, and as governed by the New Jersey Identity Theft Protection Act, N.J.S.A.56:8-161, et seq., and the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, N.J.S.A. 56:8-3, et seq.). In addition, under the TCCWNA, no consumer contract may state that any of its provisions is or may be void, unenforceable or inapplicable in some jurisdictions without specifying which provisions are or are not void, unenforceable or inapplicable in New Jersey. With respect to these Terms, in the sections on Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitations of Liability, the provisions concerning the exclusion or limitation of certain damages is not applicable in New Jersey with respect to punitive damages, loss of data, and loss of or damage to property.

 

12.           Indemnity and Liability.

You agree to indemnify and hold Trivantis and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, co-branders or other partners, and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, due to or arising out of Your Content, your use of the Services or Materials, your connection to the Services or Materials, the actions of any member of your group, your access to or use of the Website or any of our affiliates’ websites and your connections therewith, any claim that Your Content caused damage to a third party, any dealings between you and any third parties advertising or promoting via the Services or Materials, your violation of the Terms, or your violation of any rights of another, including any Intellectual Property Rights.

 

13.           Governing Law; Jurisdiction.

Website Disputes

“Website Disputes” include: (a) any claim you may have against Trivantis in connection with the Website, (b) any claim Trivantis may have against you in connection with the Website, and (c) any action to enforce the Terms or to object to the Terms.

All other disputes are “Non-Website Disputes”. Any claim arising from your purchase of a Trivantis product or service is a Non-Website Dispute. Any claim arising from the content of any offer or advertisement on the Website is a Non-Website Dispute.

Website Dispute resolution – arbitration, jury trial waiver, and class action waiver

Neither You nor we will be able to sue in court in connection with a Website Dispute. All Website Disputes must be resolved through individual (non-class) arbitration. You indicate your acceptance to these Terms, including this agreement to arbitrate, by continuing to use the Website after having the opportunity to review these Terms.  

You and we intend for this to be an agreement for arbitration that can be enforced under the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), 9 U.S.C.A. §§ 1–16.

You and we waive any rights to maintain other available resolution processes for Website Disputes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes. You and Trivantis waive any right to a jury trial for Website Disputes.  

Instead of suing in court, we each agree to settle Website Disputes only by arbitration. The rules in arbitration are different. There’s no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief, and must honor the same limitations stated in the agreement as a court would.

Any Website Dispute shall be determined by arbitration in Ohio before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. If for any reason, JAMS cannot or will not provide this arbitration, the parties may ask any court of competent jurisdiction to select an arbitrator from a list provided by the parties.

To the extent a party commences any action with includes both Website Disputes and Non-Website Disputes, consideration of the Non-Website Disputes shall be stayed until the Website Disputes are fully arbitrated. Then, any Website Disputes will be considered the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Ohio situated in Cincinnati, Ohio.

You agree that you will not file a class action against Trivantis and its affiliated companies, or participate in a class action against Trivantis and its affiliated companies, in any Website Dispute. You agree that you will not file or seek a class arbitration, or participate in a class arbitration against Trivantis and its affiliated companies, in any Website Dispute.

All matters relating to the Website and these Terms and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule.

Except as otherwise stated herein, You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

 

14.           Waiver and Severability.

No waiver of by Trivantis of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Company to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
