EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED GUARANTEE PROVIDED ABOVE IN THIS SECTION, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS, GUARANTEES, WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO OUR SITE (INCLUDING OUR PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND SITE CONTENT) INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, AND ACCURACY. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY US OR OUR AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE OF OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. You may have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Limitation of Liability
YOU AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS EXPLICITLY SET FORTH HEREIN, PRVC LLC DBA CARPET RIDES, ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, SUCCESSORS, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF DAMAGES RELATED IN ANY WAY TO OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU (INCLUDING OUR PRODUCTS, SERVICES, OR SITE CONTENT) OR THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS OR WEB SITES: INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, DATA OR USE, INCURRED BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT OR TORT, RELATED TO OUR PRODUCTS OR YOUR ACCESS TO, AND USE OF, OUR SITES OR ANY OTHER HYPER-LINKED THIRD PARTY WEB SITE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF, OR ARE AWARE OF, THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.

Basis of Bargain
THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN PRVC LLC DBA CARPET RIDES AND YOU. PRVC LLC DBA CARPET RIDES WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SITES (INCLUDING THE PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND SITE CONTENT) ON AN ECONOMICALLY ACCEPTABLE BASIS WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS. THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY INURE TO THE BENEFIT OF PRVC LLC DBA CARPET RIDES’ SUPPLIERS.
Payment of arbitration costs will be governed by the AAA’s fee schedule, unless you are able to show that your portion will be prohibitive as compared to litigation costs, in which case PRVC LLC dba Carpet Rides will pay as much of your arbitration costs as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to litigation costs. PRVC LLC dba Carpet Rides also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all arbitration costs imposed by the AAA. Each party agrees pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a governing statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid attorneys’ fees and expenses.
For more information on AAA, its Rules and Procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent the Dispute arises from a violation of your or PRVC LLC dba Carpet Rides’s intellectual property rights in any manner, both parties agree that the non-infringing party may seek injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in a state or federal court consistent with the “Governing Law” section below, and both parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Waiver of Class Arbitration: To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, all Disputes shall be resolved by binding confidential arbitration on an individual basis. You expressly agree that no other Disputes shall be consolidated or joined with your Dispute, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise (“Class Arbitration”). You further acknowledge and agree that any arbitrator assigned to a Dispute lacks the authority to conduct Class Arbitration and that such arbitrator shall only hear individual Disputes. By using the Sites, you acknowledge that you are voluntarily and knowingly waiving any right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to any Dispute subject to arbitration under these Terms and Conditions, such that you shall not be entitled to arbitrate any Dispute as a representative, a class action or in a private attorney general capacity.
Governing Law: These Terms and Conditions and all Disputes shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. Further in any arbitration, both parties agree the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized under California law.
Enforcement of Arbitration Award: The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties subject to these Terms and Conditions, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Severability: If any portion of this “Dispute Resolution” section (with the exception of your Waiver of Class Arbitration) is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, the invalid or unenforceable portion shall be severed and removed from the Terms and Conditions, and the remaining portions (including your Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes) shall remain binding on you and PRVC LLC dba Carpet Rides.
However, if any arbitrator deems your Waiver of Class Arbitration to be invalid or unenforceable, then this entire “Dispute Resolution” section shall be null and void. Under such circumstances, you expressly acknowledge and agree that: (i) all Disputes shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Virginia between Virginia residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions; (ii) all Disputes shall be resolved by a state or federal court located in the county of Fairfax, Virginia; and (iii) you will submit to the personal jurisdiction of such Commonwealth of Virginia state or federal courts for the purposes of litigating such Disputes.
Put differently, you agree that your Waiver of Class Arbitration cannot be severed from your Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, you expressly acknowledge and agree that it is your intent and the intent of PRVC LLC dba Carpet Rides not to proceed with any Dispute by way of Class Arbitration.

If any provision of the Terms and Conditions is held to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall nevertheless continue in full force and effect and the invalid, void, or unenforceable provision shall be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by the law.
Other General Provisions
Section titles in the Terms and Conditions are for convenience and do not define, limit, or extend any provision of the Terms and Conditions. As used herein, the term “including” means “including without limitation”. Our failure to enforce any right or provision shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Neither party is the agent or partner of the other party. These Terms and Conditions may not be assigned by you without our prior written consent and any attempted assignment in violation of the foregoing shall be null and void. We may assign any of our rights under these Terms and Conditions without your prior written consent, to any third party. The terms of these Terms and Conditions shall be binding upon permitted assignees.
