  24. Limitation of Liability
    1. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, ZumaZip and the other ZumaZip Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if ZumaZip or the other ZumaZip Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
    1. The total liability of ZumaZip and the other ZumaZip Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the greater of the amount paid, if any, by you to access or use our Services, or, if you have not paid any amounts for the use of any Services, the amount of $100.
    1. The limitations set forth in this Section (a) will apply even if the remedies otherwise provided under these Terms, at law or in equity, fail of their essential purpose, and regardless of the form or cause of action or the alleged basis of the claim, and (b) will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of ZumaZip or the other ZumaZip Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

  27. Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
    1. Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with ZumaZip and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
    1. Except for small claims disputes in which you or ZumaZip seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or ZumaZip seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and ZumaZip waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Salt Lake City, Utah in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules”) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
    1. You and ZumaZip agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and ZumaZip and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
    1. You and ZumaZip agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Binding Arbitration Section will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and ZumaZip agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and ZumaZip will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by ZumaZip, ZumaZip will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and ZumaZip agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Utah and the United States sitting in Salt Lake City, Utah have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
    1. Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and ZumaZip will not have the right to assert the claim.
    1. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Binding Arbitration Section by emailing support@ZumaZip.com. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with the Governing Law and Venue section.
  28. Governing Law and Venue
    1. These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Virginia, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Virginia and the United States.
  29. Changes to these Terms
    1. We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will provide you notice by posting the amended Terms to our Services and updating the “Last Updated” date above. We may also attempt to notify you by sending an email notification to the address associated with your account or by providing notice through our Services. Unless we say otherwise in our notice of changes, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and your continued access to and use of our Services after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes.
