Your unauthorized use of the Materials may violate copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, communications, and other laws, and any such use may result in your personal liability, including potential criminal liability.

Waiver of Rights. Whenever you send, post, upload or otherwise make available User Content on a User Forum or elsewhere on DFH Sites or directly to DFH (including by text message or email) you grant DFH an irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive, unrestricted, unconditional, unlimited, perpetual, fully sub-licensable and assignable, royalty free licence to use, exploit, reproduce, modify, translate, incorporate into other works, create derivative works from, publish, broadcast, and otherwise use and exploit in any manner whatsoever, all or any portion of any User Content you post or submit to us, and your name, voice, likeness and other identifying information in connection with that User Content via any media now known or later developed (including on or via the DFH Sites, or by means other than the DFH Sites, including without limitation via our social media pages and accounts such as Facebook and Twitter), and to advertise, market, and promote the same, all without any obligation to you not required by applicable law, or explicit terms of our Privacy Notice or applicable Additional Terms. You further authorize DFH to publish your User Content in a searchable format that may be accessed by users of the DFH Sites and the Internet.

NOTICE AND TAKE DOWN PROCEDURE FOR CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT

We expect users of the DFH Sites to respect the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond appropriately to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. In our sole discretion, we may remove content that may be infringing on another person's intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer. In accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other applicable law, DFH has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.

If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner's) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it through the DFH Sites, then you may send us a written notice that must include all of the following:

  • "DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice" in the heading or subject line.
  • A description of the copyrighted work you believe to have been infringed.
  • Identification of the material you believe to be infringing in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate that material (e.g., a screenshot of the location where the material is located or a URL).
  • Accurate and adequate information that we can use to contact you (including your full name, postal address, telephone number, and email address).
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  • A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed).
  • Your physical or electronic signature.

We will respond to notices of claimed copyright infringement in accordance with the DMCA. DFH will only respond to DMCA notices that it receives by mail or email at the addresses below:

Legal Officer
14 Commerce Blvd
Palm Coast, FL 32164 USA
[email protected]

It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. DFH may elect to not respond to DMCA notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and we may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to our attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA. Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents an infringement may be subject to liability. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA counter-notification.

SWEEPSTAKES, CONTESTS, & PROMOTIONS

Any sweepstakes, contests, or other promotions (any, a "Promotion") that may be offered via the DFH Sites may be governed by a separate set of rules that may have eligibility requirements, such as certain age or geographic area restrictions, terms and conditions governing the Promotion, use of User Content, and disclosures about how your personal information may be used. It is your responsibility to read these rules to determine whether or not you want to and are eligible to participate, register and/or enter, and to determine the applicable terms and conditions of the Promotion. By participating in a Promotion, you will be subject to those official rules, and you agree to comply with and abide by such rules and the decisions of the identified sponsor(s).

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS; PRICING; TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS

We strive to accurately describe our products offered on the DFH Sites; however, we do not warrant that such specifications, pricing, or other content on the DFH Sites is complete, accurate, reliable, current, or error-free.

ARBITRATION AND DISPUTE TERMS.

Forum Selection/Jurisdiction. Jurisdiction and venue for any controversy, allegation, or claim arising out of or relating to the DFH Sites, the Materials, your User Content, these Terms of Use, or any applicable Additional Terms, (collectively, "Dispute") shall be exclusively in the federal and state courts in, or with jurisdiction over, Flagler County, Florida. Each party submits to personal jurisdiction and venue of the federal and state courts in, or with jurisdiction over, in Flagler County, Florida for any and all purposes.

Pre-Arbitration Notification. DFH and you agree that it would be advantageous to discuss and hopefully resolve any Disputes before formal proceedings are initiated; provided, however, that DFH need not do so in circumstances where its claims of Intellectual Property rights are concerned ("IP Disputes," with all other disputes referred to as "General Disputes"). The party making a claim – whether you or DFH – shall send a letter to the other side briefly summarizing the claim and the request for relief. If DFH is making a claim, the letter shall be sent, via email, to the email address listed in your DFH account, if applicable. If no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no notification or delay obligations under this Section. If you are making a claim, the letter shall be sent to Designs for Health, Inc., Attn: General Counsel, 14 Commerce Blvd, Palm Coast, FL 32164. If the Dispute is not resolved within sixty (60) days after notification, the claimant may proceed to initiate proceedings as set forth in this Section. Either you or DFH, however, may seek provisional remedies (such as preliminary injunctive relief, subject to the exceptions disclosed herein) before the expiration of this sixty (60)-day period.

Arbitration of Claims. Unless you give us notice of opt-out within five (5) business days of your first use of a DFH Site, addressed to: Designs for Health, Inc., Attn: General Counsel, 14 Commerce Blvd, Palm Coast, FL 32164, all actions or proceedings arising in connection with, touching upon or relating to any Dispute, or the scope of the provisions of this Section, shall be submitted to JAMS (www.jamsadr.com) for final and binding arbitration under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures if the matter in dispute is over $250,000 or under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures if the matter in dispute is $250,000 or less, to be held in Flagler County, Florida , before a single arbitrator. If the matter in dispute is between DFH and a consumer, the matter shall be submitted to JAMS in accordance with its Policy on Consumer Arbitration Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness. The arbitrator shall be selected by mutual agreement of the parties or, if the parties cannot agree, then by striking from a list of arbitrators supplied by JAMS.

We may have the right to pay the JAMS fees if required for arbitration to be enforceable. The arbitration shall be a confidential proceeding, closed to the general public; provided, however, that a party may disclose information relating to the arbitration proceedings to its and its affiliates' lawyers, insurance providers, auditors and other professional advisers. The fact that there is a dispute between the parties that is the subject of arbitration shall be confidential to the same extent. The arbitrator shall issue a written opinion stating the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator's award is based. Neither party shall be entitled or permitted to commence or maintain any action in a court of law with respect to any matter in dispute until such matter shall have been submitted to arbitration as herein provided and then only for the enforcement of the arbitrator's award; provided, however, that prior to the appointment of the arbitrator or for remedies beyond the jurisdiction of an arbitrator, at any time, either party may seek pendente lite relief (subject to the provisions of these Terms of Use waiving or limiting that relief) in a court of competent jurisdiction in Flagler County, Florida, or, if sought by DFH, such other court that may have jurisdiction over you, without thereby waiving its right to arbitration of the dispute or controversy under this section; provided further, however, that the losing party shall have fifteen (15) business days after the issuance of the arbitrator's decision to fully comply with such decision, after which the prevailing party may enforce such decision by a petition to the court or, in the case of you, such other court having jurisdiction over you, which may be made ex parte, for confirmation and enforcement of the award.

Limitation on Injunctive Relief. AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE INCURRED ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, OR INJURIES IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE DFH SITES, THEN THE LOSSES, DAMAGES, AND INJURIES WILL NOT BE DEEMED IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR TO OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF ANY KIND. THIS MEANS (WITHOUT LIMITATION) THAT, IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR CLAIM, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT SEEK, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN, ANY COURT OR OTHER ACTION THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEBSITE, APPLICATION, MATERIALS, USER CONTENT, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNED, LICENSED, USED, OR CONTROLLED BY ANY DFH PARTY (DEFINED BELOW) (INCLUDING YOUR LICENSED USER CONTENT) OR A LICENSOR OF ANY DFH PARTY.

Governing Law. These Terms of Use and any applicable Additional Terms, General Disputes and IP Disputes, and any other claim brought by you against DFH or by DFH against you pursuant to this section, or otherwise related to the DFH Sites, Materials, User Content, or other DFH products or services, will be governed by, construed, and resolved in accordance with, the laws of the State of Florida, U.S.A., without regard to its conflicts of law provisions that might apply the laws of another jurisdiction. This section shall be governed solely by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1, et seq., and not by the law of any state, and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. You and DFH agree that we intend that this section satisfies the "writing" requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This section can only be amended by mutual agreement. Either party may seek enforcement of this section in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim.

Class Action and Trial by Jury Waiver. DISPUTES WILL BE ARBITRATED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WILL NOT BE JOINED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATIONS OR OTHER PROCEEDINGS THAT INVOLVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY OF ANY OTHER PARTY. YOU AND DFH AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE TO WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY DISPUTE.

Small Claims Matters. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claims of General Dispute (but not IP Disputes) in small claims court. This section shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the DFH Sites or these Terms of Use.

The foregoing limitations of liability will apply even if any of the events or circumstances were foreseeable and even if DFH Parties were advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses or damages, regardless of whether you bring an action based in contract, negligence, strict liability, or tort (including whether caused, in whole or in part, by negligence, acts of god, telecommunications failure, or destruction of the DFH Sites).
