You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless all WeShareMD entities and their respective affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, licensors, licensees, agents, and representatives (the “Covered Entities”) against all liability, claims, costs, damages, settlements, and expenses (including interest, penalties, attorney fees and expert witness fees) (“Liabilities”) incurred by any Covered Entity in any way arising out of or relating to your breach of these Terms.

Disclaimers

To the maximum extent permitted by law, THE COVERED ENTITIES MAKE NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND ABOUT the WeShareMD Online Services, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE COVERED ENTITIES HAVE NOT MADE ANY REPRESENTATION AS TO THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS YOU MAY REALIZE BY USING THE WeSharemd online SERVICES. THE wesharemd SERVICES ARE PROVIDED AS IS, with all faults, AND AS AVAILABLE. THE COVERED ENTITIES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE MENTIONED ABOVE.

The Covered Parties are not responsible or liable for the conduct of any user of the WeShareMD Online Services.

Limitations on Liability

THE COVERED ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR (A) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, Statutory Damages or penalties, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION), EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF these types of DAMAGES, OR (B) LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO REPUTATION arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (i) these Terms or the WESHAREMD online services, and (ii) any acts or omissions of any of the covered entities in connection with these terms or the WESHAREMD services.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

Exceptions to Disclaimers and Exclusions of Damages

If you live in a jurisdiction that does not allow disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, the foregoing disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Timing of Claims

You must bring any claim you have against WeShareMD relating to these Terms or the WeShareMD Online Services within two years from the date of accrual of the applicable claim.

Legal Disputes and Arbitration Agreement

Initial Dispute Resolution

We are available by email at info@wesharemd.com  to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the WeShareMD Online Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.

Terms of Service and Binding Arbitration Agreement

If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to the preceding paragraph, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the WeShareMD Online Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS on a non-confidential basis in accordance with the provisions of its then-effective rules, including its streamlined procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity.  The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act shall exclusively govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision and the parties hereby reject, waive and disclaim the application of any state Arbitration Act.

The JAMS rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/, or by calling JAMS at 1.800.352.5267. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, WeShareMD will pay the additional cost. A request for payment of fees should be submitted to JAMS along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and WeShareMD will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to JAMS. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.

The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of
arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

Class Action Waiver

The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

Exception – Small Claims Court Claims

Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.

30 Day Right to Opt Out

You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the preceding three paragraphs by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following email address: info@wesharemd.com . The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of registering to use the WeShareMD Online Services, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those Sections. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, WeShareMD also will not be bound by them.

Exclusive Venue for Litigation

Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in San Diego, CA (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The
parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in San Diego, CA for any litigation other than small claims court actions. The Parties irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction in San Diego, CA for any litigation and hereby waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction of San Diego, CA over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) these Terms or the WeShareMD Online Services, and (b) any acts or omissions of any of the Covered Entities in connection with these Terms or the WeShareMD Online Services.
