  • 12. RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION 

To the extent permitted by law, YOU HEREBY RELEASE, WAIVE, AND HOLD HARMLESS THE PRODUCT ENTITIES, THEIR AGENTS, MANAGERS, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, LICENSEES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS AND EACH OF THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, CONTRACTORS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, ATTORNEYS, SERVICE PROVIDERS , PARTNERS AND/OR AFFILIATES, AND ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION OR TRANSMISSION OF THE PRODUCT OR SERVICES  (COLLECTIVELY, “Released Parties”) FROM ALL DAMAGES, LIABILITIES, CLAIMS, ACTIONS, DEMANDS, AND COSTS OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THESE TERMS, THE PRIVACY POLICY, ANY USE BY YOU OF THE PRODUCT OR SERVICES, ANY ACTION TAKEN BY THE PRODUCT ENTITIES OR GRIT DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ANY INVESTIGATION BY THE PRODUCT ENTITIES OR GRIT, AND/OR ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY THE PRODUCT ENTITIES OR GRIT OR LAW ENFORCEMENT RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE PRODUCT OR SERVICES.

California residents or users: YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE CA CIVIL CODE §1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”

To the extent permitted by law, any material, information, products or services downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the Product is done at your own discretion and risk and you will be solely responsible for any damages, including but not limited to damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such material and/or due to malware.  The Product Entities do not assume responsibility to you or others for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Product or Services, or for any failure by the Product Entities to enforce the provisions contained in the Terms or the Privacy Policy. The Product Entities are not responsible for any harm or damages of any kind that may occur to you due to any glitches, hacks, breaches or any other unauthorized access to the aforementioned parties’ computers or network systems, including any hardware or devices, including but not limited to those that may or may not result in the disclosure of your personal information you provided to us.

Note that this, and all other sections of the Terms, are applicable only to the extent permitted by law. For example, some states have statutes, rules, or regulations that do not allow a state government, a state entity, such as a state educational institution, or state employee to be bound by provisions in a contract that purport to impose obligations for release of liability, indemnification, limitations of liability, or binding arbitration.  Nothing in the Terms shall override or be considered a waiver by a covered user of any such statute, rule, or regulation.   

The proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, representations made by you, release of liabilities, indemnities, limitations of liability, and any other relevant language that is meant to remain in effect after this agreement ends shall survive the termination of this agreement or these Terms.

  • 16. Dispute Resolution, Arbitration, Choice of Law.

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.

To the extent permitted by law, YOU AGREE THAT BY USING THE PRODUCT OR SERVICES, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. You agree that you may bring claims against the product entities or released parties only in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, representative, or collective proceeding. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.

YOU AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES, OR YOUR DEALINGS WITH THE PRODUCT ENTITIES SHALL BE FINALLY SETTLED AND RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. The arbitration will be governed by the commercial arbitration rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section. The arbitration will be conducted by Judicial Arbiter Group, Inc. (“JAG”) using one arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAG arbitrators in accordance with the arbitration rules and procedures of JAG. If JAG is unable or unwilling to arbitrate a dispute, then the dispute may be referred to any other arbitration organization or arbitrator that you and Grit agree upon in writing or that is appointed pursuant to section 5 of the Federal Arbitration Act. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, you must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on telephone or online appearances and/or written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in Denver, Colorado. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court and review by a court is limited. You will not be able to have a court or jury trial or participate in a class action or class arbitration. You understand and agree that by agreeing to resolve any dispute through individual arbitration, you are waiving the right to a court or jury trial. Any dispute shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and not as a class action, representative action, class arbitration or any similar proceeding. The arbitrator may not consolidate the claims of multiple parties.

ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OF USE, YOUR USE OF THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, OR YOUR DEALINGS WITH THE PRODUCT ENTITIES MUST BE COMMENCED IN ARBITRATION WITHIN TWO (2) YEARS AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. After that two (2)-year period, such cause of action or claim is permanently barred. Some jurisdictions do not allow time limitations other than those set forth in such state’s statute of limitations laws. In such cases, the applicable statute of limitations provided for under the laws of such state shall apply.

You agree that all challenges to the validity and applicability of the arbitration provision—i.e. whether a particular claim or dispute is subject to arbitration—shall be determined by the arbitrator. If the arbitration provision in this section is found unenforceable or to not apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in the state courts of competent jurisdiction or the united states district court located in Denver, Colorado, as appropriate, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of each of these courts for the purpose of litigating such claims or disputes, and you still waive your right to a jury trial, waive your right to initiate or proceed in a class or collective action, and remain bound by any and all limitations on liability and damages included in these terms. This arbitration agreement will survive termination of your use of the Product and services and your relationship with the Product Entities. This arbitration agreement involves interstate commerce and, therefore, shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 (“FAA”), and not by state law. Information on AAA and how to start arbitration can be found at www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879.

IF YOU WISH TO OPT-OUT OF THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, within 45 days of when you first use the Product or Services or submit through the Services a request for information, YOU MUST SEND US A LETTER STATING, “REQUEST TO OPT-OUT OF AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE” to the following address:

Grit Digital Health, LLC

2128 15th Street

Denver, CO 80202

In the event you opt out of the arbitration provision, you agree to litigate exclusively in the state or Federal courts in Denver, Colorado, and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such action. These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws.
