Disclaimer of Warranties

The Website is provided “as is”. Louise Purtle and its contributors, suppliers and licensors hereby disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Neither Louise Purtle nor its contributors, suppliers and licensors, makes any warranty that the Website will be error free or that access thereto will be continuous or uninterrupted. You understand that you download from, or otherwise obtain content or services through, the Website at your own discretion and risk.

Limitation of Liability

 In no event will Louise Purtle, or its suppliers or licensors, be liable with respect to any subject matter of this agreement under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for: (i) any special, incidental or consequential damages; (ii) the cost of procurement for substitute products or services; (iii) for interruption of use or loss or corruption of data; or (iv) for any amounts that exceed the fees paid by you to Louise Purtle under this agreement during the twelve (12) month period prior to the cause of action.

General Representation and Warranty

You represent and warrant that (i) your use of the Website will be in strict accordance with the Louise Purtle Privacy Notice, with this Agreement and with all applicable laws and regulations (including without limitation any local laws or regulations in your country, state, city, or other governmental area, regarding online conduct and acceptable content, and including all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside) and (ii) your use of the Website will not infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property rights of any third party.

Governing Law

Louise Purtle controls and operates the Website from its location within the United States. By accessing the Website, you agree that any disputes or matters arising out of or related to your viewing or use of the Website shall be governed under the laws of the State of Florida without regard to the conflict of laws, and the proper venue for any disputes arising out of or relating to any of the same will be the state and federal courts serving Collier County, Florida.

Arbitration

Any claim or dispute arising from or relating to these Terms of Use and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms of Use, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, "Covered Disputes") will be settled exclusively by binding, individual arbitration, rather than in court, and to be held in Naples, Florida or another location mutually agreeable to the parties. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.

Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days' advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Louise Purtle will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail address on file with us and you must provide such notice by e-mail to Rev@LouisePurtle.com. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties.

Miscellaneous

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Louise Purtle and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and it may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of Louise Purtle, or by the posting by Louise Purtle of a revised version.
