7. Limitation of Liability.
BIVO’S LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO YOUR USE OF OR PURCHASE THROUGH THE SITE SHALL NOT EXCEED THE PRICE YOU PAID FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE CLAIM. IF YOUR CLAIM DOES NOT INVOLVE THE PURCHASE OF ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE, BIVO’S TOTAL LIABILITY SHALL NOT EXCEED $250. IN NO EVENT SHALL BIVO BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, NONECONOMIC, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY APPLIES TO ALL CLAIMS OF ANY TYPE, REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY ASSERTED. IF ANY PART OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON THAT PART SHALL BE SEVERED, THE REMAINDER OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL REMAIN IN FORCE. IF ANY PART OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS SEVERED DUE TO INVALIDITY OR UNENFORCEABILITY, A SUBSTITUTE PROVISION SHALL BE ENFORCED IN PLACE OF THE SEVERED PART THAT COMES CLOSEST TO EFFECTUATING THE PARTIES’ INTENT, WHICH IS TO LIMIT BIVO’S LIABILITY AS STATED HEREIN OR OTHERWISE TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.
You agree to appear defend, indemnify and hold harmless Bivo, its officers, directors, members, employees, agents, affiliates, licensors and suppliers, successors, and assigns from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) by any third-party arising from or related to: (a) your use of or access to the Site; (b) your violation of these Terms; (c) your violation of any third-party’s rights, including without limitation intellectual property or privacy rights; or (d) the use by any other person who accesses this Site using your Internet account, electronic device, or login.

You may not settle any claim contemplated in this Section without Bivo’s prior written consent, which may be withheld in Bivo’s sole discretion.
9. Third-Party Content.
10. Infringement Complaint Procedures.

The detail and completeness of your notice will assist us in that process. Failure provide the notice required in this section may result in a waiver of your claim.
11. Dispute Resolution.
Any dispute arising out of these Terms shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration held in Portland, Oregon pursuant to the rules of the Arbitration Service of Portland (“ASP”). Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. The arbitrator may award the same relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual, and an arbitrator must enforce the these Terms. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate may be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall apply the laws of the State of Oregon and decide all claims in accordance therewith, without regard to conflicts of law principles. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the ASP’s rules. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this agreement to arbitrate shall remain in force, and an enforceable substitute term shall replace the offending provision that comes closest to effectuating the original intent.
You may reject this agreement to arbitrate by mailing Bivo a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”) at the address listed on the Site. The Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than thirty days after the date you accept these Terms by accessing or using the Site for the first time. The Opt-Out Notice must include your name, address (including street number and address, city, state, and zip code), phone number, and, if applicable, the email address you used to log in to the Bivo account to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply.
In the event you provide Bivo with an effective Opt-Out Notice, or if this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable for any reason, you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the federal and state courts located in Multnomah County, Oregon for all claims of any type arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Site. Oregon law shall govern all claims, without regard to choice of law principles. You agree that any claim brought or attempted to be brought in any court or tribunal outside of Multnomah County, Oregon, shall be promptly dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, improper venue, or both.
Before commencing any legal proceeding against Bivo (including arbitration or, if an effective Opt-Out Notice has been served or if the claim is otherwise deemed inarbitrable for any reason, in a court of competent jurisdiction), you must provide Bivo with a written notice of claim that states in detail the alleged nature and basis for your claim. Notice must be mailed by first class mail, return receipt requested, to the address listed on the Site. All claims of any type must be commenced, if at all, within 180 days of the event that gave rise to the claim. You agree that failure to strictly comply with the provisions of this section shall result in dismissal of your claim(s).
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you understand that Bivo may make changes to these Terms from time to time in its sole discretion. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these Terms will be considered your consent to those changes. When changes are made, Bivo will update the Terms on the Site. Bivo is not required to provide you with notices regarding changes to the Terms. Bivo’s failure to exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy contained in these Terms or otherwise available at law or in equity, shall not constitute a waiver of any kind.
If, in a proceeding that involves claims arising under or related to these terms, an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be severed and replaced by a substitute term that is enforceable and that most closely effectuates the stricken term’s intent, and the remainder of these Terms shall remain valid and enforceable as though the severed provision had never been included.
The Site is controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting these terms in any other respect, Bivo makes no representation that the Site, Contents, or Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Accessing or using this Site from any territory where such use is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site from outside the United States are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.
