This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and NWAC or any other NWAC Parties.
Your use of our Services (including the Third-Party Content and Third-Party Materials) is at your sole risk. Except as otherwise provided in a writing by NWAC and to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, the Services are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non- infringement. In addition, NWAC does not represent or warrant that our Services (including the Third-Party Content and Third-Party Materials) are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free or that access to our Services or any content provided therein or therewith (including the Third-Party Content and Third-Party Materials) will be uninterrupted. While NWAC attempts to make your use of the Services safe, NWAC cannot and does not represent or warrant that the Services or our servers are free of viruses or other harmful components.

All disclaimers of any kind (including in this section and elsewhere in these Terms) are made for the benefit of NWAC, NWAC Parties, and NWAC’s respective shareholders, agents, representatives, licensors, suppliers, and service providers, as well as their respective successors and assigns.
11 Limitation of Liability
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, NWAC and the other NWAC Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive, or special damages or lost profits, even if NWAC or other NWAC Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
The total liability of NWAC and the other NWAC Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the amount you pay to NWAC to use our Services.
The limitations set forth in this section will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of NWAC or the other NWAC Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
12 Transfer and Processing Data
By using our Services, you consent to the processing, transfer, and storage of information about you in and to the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND NWAC TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH WE CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM EACH OTHER. ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU AND NWAC FROM SUING IN COURT OR HAVING A JURY TRIAL. YOU AND NWAC AGREE THAT ARBITRATION WILL BE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION, OR ANY OTHER KIND OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. NWAC AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY.
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE REQUIREMENT OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
For any dispute or claim that you have against NWAC, that NWAC has against you or that you have, or NWAC has, in each case arising from, relating to, or stemming from these Terms, our Services, or any aspect of the relationship between you and NWAC as relates to these Terms, our Services, including any privacy or data security claims, (collectively, “Claims”, and each a “Claim”), you and NWAC agree to attempt to first resolve the Claim informally via the following process. If you assert a Claim against NWAC, you will first contact NWAC by sending a written notice of your Claim (“Claimant Notice”) to NWAC by certified mail addressed to Northwest Avalanche Center, 249 Main Ave. S, Suite 107-366 North Bend, WA 98045 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Claimant Notice must (i) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (ii) describe the nature and basis of the Claim; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought. If NWAC asserts a Claim against you, NWAC will first contact you by sending a written notice of NWAC’s Claim (“NWAC Notice”), and each of a Claimant Notice and NWAC Notice, a “Notice”) to you via email to the primary email address associated with your account. The NWAC Notice must (i) include the name of a NWAC contact and the contact’s email address and telephone number; (ii) describe the nature and basis of the Claim; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought. If you and NWAC cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Claim within thirty (30) days after you or NWAC receives such a Notice, then either party may submit the Claim to binding arbitration as set forth below. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled for thirty (30) days from the date that either you or NWAC first send the applicable Notice so that the parties can engage in this informal dispute-resolution process.
Except for individual disputes that qualify for small claims court and any disputes exclusively related to the intellectual property or intellectual property rights of you or NWAC, including any disputes in which you or NWAC seek injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of your or NWAC intellectual property or other infringement of your or NWAC’s intellectual property rights (“IP Claims”), all Claims, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, including Claims that are not related to intellectual property or intellectual property rights but are jointly filed with IP Claims, that are not resolved in accordance with this Section 13 will be resolved by a neutral arbitrator through final and binding arbitration instead of in a court by a judge or jury. Such Claims include, without limitation, disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability, or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant any remedy or relief that would otherwise be available in court.
These Terms affect interstate commerce, and the enforceability of this Section 13 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq., to the extent permitted by law.
All Claims must be submitted to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and will be resolved through binding arbitration before one arbitrator. If you are a consumer, the then-current version of the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply, which are available on the AAA’s website (adr.org), as amended by these Terms as follows:
YOU AND NWAC AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED, AND YOU AND NWAC ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and, except as described below for the additional procedures to govern if twenty-five (25) or more similar or coordinated claims are asserted against NWAC or you by the same or coordinated counsel, may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding, or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
For any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the consumer filing fee, and NWAC will pay the remaining AAA fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by NWAC, NWAC will pay all AAA fees and costs.
For all arbitrations where the claims asserted are $25,000 or less, the arbitration shall be resolved according to the AAA’s Procedures for the Resolution of Disputes through Document Submission, and for all other arbitrations the following procedure will apply: (i) the arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate; (ii) any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances; and (iii) if the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator.
If you or NWAC submits a dispute to arbitration and the arbitrator orders any exchange of information, you and NWAC agree to cooperate to seek from the arbitrator protection for any confidential, proprietary, trade secret, or otherwise sensitive information, documents, testimony, and/or other materials that might be exchanged or the subject of discovery in the arbitration. You and NWAC agree to seek such protection before any such information, documents, testimony, and/or materials are exchanged or otherwise become the subject of discovery in the arbitration.
The arbitrator’s decision will follow these Terms and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.
The AAA Supplementary Rules for Multiple Case Filings and the AAA Multiple Consumer Case Filing Fee Schedule will apply if twenty-five (25) or more similar claims are asserted against NWAC or against you by the same or coordinated counsel or are otherwise coordinated. In addition to the application of the AAA Supplementary Rules for Multiple Case Filings and the AAA Multiple Consumer Case Filing Fee Schedule, you and NWAC understand and agree that when twenty-five (25) or more similar claims are asserted against NWAC or you by the same or coordinated counsel or are otherwise resolved, your or NWAC’s Claim might be delayed. For such coordinated actions, you and NWAC also agree to the following coordinated bellwether process. Counsel for the claimants and counsel for NWAC shall each select ten (10) cases (per side) to proceed first in individual arbitration proceedings as part of a bellwether process. The remaining cases shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any AAA fees be assessed in connection with those cases until they are selected to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a bellwether process. If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining cases after the conclusion of the initial twenty (20) proceedings, each side shall select another ten (10) cases (per side) to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a second bellwether process. The remaining cases shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any AAA fees be assessed in connection with those cases until they are selected to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a bellwether process. A single arbitrator shall preside over each case. Only one case may be assigned to each arbitrator as part of a bellwether process unless the parties agree otherwise. This staged process shall continue, consistent with the parameters identified above, until all the claims included in these coordinated filings, including your case, are adjudicated or otherwise resolved. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled for claims subject to this staged process from the time the first cases are selected for a bellwether process until the time your case is selected for a bellwether process, withdrawn, or otherwise resolved. A court shall have authority to enforce this paragraph and, if necessary, to enjoin the mass filing or prosecution of arbitration demands against NWAC or you.
One Year to Assert Claims. To the extent permitted by law, any Claim by you or NWAC relating in any way to these Terms, our Services, or any aspect of the relationship between you and NWAC as relates to these Terms, or our Services, must be filed within one year after such Claim arises; otherwise, the Claim is permanently barred, which means that you and NWAC will not have the right to assert the Claim.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted these Terms by providing us with notice of your decision to opt-out via email at email@example.com or by certified mail addressed to Northwest Avalanche Center, 249 Main Ave. S, Suite 107-366 North Bend, WA 98045. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name, mailing address, and email address. The notice must also clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with these Terms.
If any portion of this Section 13 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, including but not limited to because it is found to be unconscionable, (i) the unenforceable or unlawful provision will be severed from these Terms; (ii) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision will have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 13 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 13; and (iii) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The litigation of those claims will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 13 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 13 will be enforceable.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Terms, if you reside in any country outside of the United States, you may bring legal proceedings regarding the Terms either by following the arbitration procedure detailed above in this Section 13 of the Terms or, if given the right by applicable law, by submitting the dispute to an arbitration administrator in the jurisdiction in which you reside. To the extent any proceeding is not subject to arbitration under applicable law, you may submit the dispute to the courts of the jurisdiction in which you reside.
14 Governing Law and Venue
Any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms and your use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington, except to the extent preempted by the U.S. Federal Law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Washington or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration as set forth in these Terms or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Washington and the United States, respectively, sitting in King County, Washington. You and NWAC waive any objection to venue in any such courts. If your local law requires that consumer contracts be interpreted subject to local law and enforced in the courts of that jurisdiction, this section may not apply to you only to the extent that local law conflicts with this section.
15 Modifying and Terminating our Services
We reserve the right to modify the Services or to suspend or stop providing all or portions of the Services at any time. You also have the right to stop using the Services at any time. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use the Services.
16 Changes to these Terms
We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make any changes, we will provide you with notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Services, or updating the “Last Updated” date above. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and your continued access to and use of our Services after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to any of the amended terms and conditions set forth in the amended Terms, you must stop using our Services.
In these terms, the terms “including” and “include” will mean “including but not limited to” and references to a “Section” will mean a section of these Terms, unless otherwise expressly stated. All section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The rights and responsibilities of the parties will be interpreted and enforced accordingly, so as to preserve the Terms and the intent of the Terms to the fullest possible extent.
The failure of NWAC to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. You agree that communications and transactions between us may be conducted electronically.
20 Additional Terms Applicable to Mobile Devices

However, NWAC has disclaimed all warranties of any kind with respect to the App, and therefore, there are no warranties applicable to the App.
