    We do not control, endorse or take responsibility for any User Content or third-party content available on or linked to by our Services.

    Your use of our Services and Supply is at your sole risk. Drift makes no representations or warranties regarding our Services or Supply other than those expressly set forth in these Terms or in additional terms provided by Drift. Our Services and Supply are provided "as is" and "as available" without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In addition, Drift does not represent or warrant that our Services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. While Drift attempts to make your access to and use of our Services safe, we cannot and do not represent or warrant that our Services or servers are free of viruses or other harmful components.

  13. Limitation of Liability

    The Drift 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, incidental, or special damages or lost profits, even if the Drift Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

    Unless otherwise provided in these Terms or in any additional terms, the total liability of the Drift Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, our Services, or Supply, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the single largest monthly invoice amount you paid to Drift in the twelve (12) months immediately prior to when the Claim arose.

    The limitations set forth in this section will not limit or exclude liability for personal injury, death or property damage caused by the Services or for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional, willful, malicious or reckless misconduct of Drift or the other Drift Parties.

  14. Release

    To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release Drift and the other Drift Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. You expressly waive any rights you may have under California Civil Code § 1542 as well as any other statute or common law principles that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.

    By accessing or using our Services, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information about you in and to the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.

  16. Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration

    Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Drift and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

    Except for (a) small claims disputes in which you or Drift seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address, (b) disputes in which you or Drift seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, or (c) claims or disputes related solely to billing for the provision and delivery of Supply, you and Drift waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services, or the provision, delivery or use of the Supply resolved in court. Instead, except as excluded in the preceding sentences, all disputes will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in King County, Washington (or, alternatively, via telephone or video conference) 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.

    You and Drift agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services, or the provision, delivery or use of the Supply is personal to you and Drift 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.

    You and Drift agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 16 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 Drift agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Drift will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Drift, Drift will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Drift agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Washington and the United States sitting in King County, Washington have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.

    Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services, or the provision, delivery or use of the Supply must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Drift will not have the right to assert the claim.

    You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 16 by emailing info@joindrift.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 Section 17.

  17. Governing Law and Venue

    Unless otherwise provided for in additional terms, these Terms, the Services, or the provision, delivery or use of the Supply will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Washington, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Washington or any other jurisdiction) 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 Washington and the United States, respectively, sitting in King County and Washington.

  18. Termination

    We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use the Supply and our Services. In no event are we responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use the Supply or our Services.

  19. Severability

    If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

  20. Force Majeure

    Drift will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with access to the Services and the Supply you request, but Drift does not guarantee continuous access to the Services or a continuous provision of Supply to you. Certain causes and events out of our control (Force Majeure Events) may result in interruptions to the Services or in your Supply. In the event that Drift is rendered unable, wholly or in part, to perform its obligations under these Terms due to events not reasonably anticipated or within our control, Drift will not be liable for any interruptions caused by a Force Majeure Event, and Drift is not and shall not be liable for damages caused by Force Majeure Events. Force Majeure Events include acts of God, fire, flood,, storm, terrorism, war, civil disturbance, acts of any governmental authority, accidents, strikes, labor disputes or problems, required maintenance work, inability to access the local distribution utility system, curtailment by your local distribution utility or Drift’s transportation capacity, the local distribution utility company’s appropriation of energy or power services or supplies, non-performance by the local distribution utility company (including, but not limited to, a facility outage on its energy or power distribution lines or electric facilities), or any other cause beyond Drift’s control.

  21. Miscellaneous

    These Terms, including any additional terms as applicable, constitute the entire agreement between you and Drift relating to your access to and use of the Supply and our Services. The failure of Drift to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
