This Agreement and its performance shall be governed by the laws of the state of New York, United States of America, without regard to its or any jurisdiction's conflict of law provisions. Should the arbitration provision below be found to be inapplicable or unenforceable, you consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the County of New York, state of New York, United States of America, in all questions and controversies arising out of your use of the Website and this Agreement. To the extent allowed by applicable law, any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to your access or use of the Website must be brought within two (2) years from the date on which such claim or action arose or accrued. You also acknowledge and agree that any applicable state law implementation of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (including any available remedies or laws) shall not apply to this Agreement and is hereby disclaimed. A printed version of this Agreement and of any related notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial, arbitration, or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent as other documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
Arbitration And Class Action Waiver
Any controversy or claim arising out of or related to the use of the Website that cannot be resolved through an informal process or through negotiation within 120 days shall be settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association, and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration will be conducted in the COUNTY OF NEW YORK but may proceed telephonically (if the claimant so chooses). IF YOU INITIATE AN ARBITRATION, BIOPURE SUPPLEMENTS WILL PROMPTLY REIMBURSE YOU FOR ANY STANDARD FILING FEE WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN REQUIRED ONCE YOU HAVE NOTIFIED BIOPURE SUPPLEMENTS IN WRITING AND PROVIDED A COPY OF THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS.
BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. In arbitration, a dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, rather than by a judge or jury. Arbitration is more informal than a court trial; however, an arbitrator can award the same relief that a court can award. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and may be conducted under AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”) in effect at the time of the dispute. You may obtain copies of the AAA Rules and forms and instructions for initiating arbitration by visiting the AAA website at www.adr.org, or by calling AAA at (800) 788-7879.
You agree that disputes will only be arbitrated on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated, on a class wide, representative basis, or with any other arbitration(s) or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. If for any reason this arbitration clause is unenforceable or inapplicable, both you and we agree, to the extent permissible by law, to waive any right to pursue any claims on a class action basis. If any portion of this class action waiver is limited, void, or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate under this section will not apply and any controversy or claim must be brought exclusively in the state and federal courts in NEW YORK.
Limitation of Liability and Disclaimer
You expressly agree that use of our Website is at your sole risk and the Website is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis to the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable laws.
BIOPURE Supplements and its parents, affiliates (and their franchisees and licensees) and subsidiaries (collectively, “affiliates”) expressly disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY DIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS, COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OR LOST OPPORTUNITY) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE WEBSITE OR PRODUCTS OF SERVICES, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHALL WE BE LIABLE FOR MORE THAN THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO US WITHIN THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING ANY CLAIM.
Termination of Agreement or Account
These Terms will take effect at the time you place an order, register, respond to a request for information, or begin downloading, accessing, or using the Website, whichever is earliest. BIOPURE Supplements reserves the right at any time and for any reason to deny you access to this Website or to any portion thereof, and BIOPURE Supplements shall have the right to immediately terminate a user’s account in the event of any conduct by a user which BIOPURE Supplements, in its sole discretion, considers to be unacceptable, or in the event of any breach by a user of these Terms. Termination will be effective, with or without notice. You may also terminate this Agreement at any time by ceasing to use the Website, but all applicable provisions of these Terms will survive termination. The provisions concerning BIOPURE Supplements’s proprietary rights, Submissions, indemnity, disclaimers of warranty and liability, admissibility of these Terms, and governing law will survive the termination of these Terms for any reason.
Failure to insist on strict performance of any of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by BIOPURE Supplements of any right under these Terms will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and the liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most clearly matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect. We may perform any of our obligations or exercise any of our rights under these Terms through one or more of our corporate affiliates (including any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with us). If BIOPURE Supplements, or its assets are acquired by another entity, that entity will assume our rights and obligations as described in these Terms. You may not assign your rights or obligations under these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, BIOPURE Supplements may assign this Agreement in whole or in part. Moreover, BIOPURE Supplements may delegate its rights and responsibilities or use contractors or agents to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and BIOPURE Supplements, as a result of these Terms or your use of this Website. These Terms, and any other agreement or terms or conditions for services, subscriptions, or licenses for products or services available through the Website, which are all hereby incorporated by reference as if set forth fully herein, represent the entire agreement between you and BIOPURE Supplements, with respect to use of the Website, and they supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written between you and BIOPURE Supplements, with respect to this Website.
