You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Tangible House, its officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with your access to or use of the Services, Tangible House Content or Member Content, or your violation of these Terms.
Limitation of Liability
You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Services, Tangible House Content and Member Content remains with you. Neither Tangible House nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Services, Tangible House Content or Member Content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with these Terms or from the use of or inability to use the Services, Tangible House Content or Member Content, or from any communications, interactions or meetings with other Members or users of the Services or other persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not Tangible House has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
In no event will Tangible House’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms or from the use of or inability to use the Services, Tangible House Content or Member Content exceed: (i) if you are a Member who has sold Original Works of Art or has licensed Digital Works and has received any Artist Revenue Share from Tangible House from the sale of Printed Works, the total payments made or credited to you by Tangible House for the sale of your Original Works of Art and/or from the sale of Printed Works based on your licensed Digital Works during the three (3) month period preceding the date a claim for liability arises under these Terms; and (ii) if you are a Member who has purchased Original Works of Art or Printed Works, the total payments that you made to Tangible House for the Original Works of Art and/or Printed Works that are the subject of a claim. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Tangible House and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

All trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names and any other proprietary designations of Tangible House used herein are trademarks or registered trademarks of Tangible House or its licensors.

RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You and we expressly agree that any claim or dispute must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court or arbitration located in Los Angeles County, California, except as described in the Agreement to Arbitrate below or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.
It is our goal that the Services meet your expectations and provide excellent service. However, there may be instances when you feel that we have made a mistake or left you disappointed in some way. In those instances, we are committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution that satisfies you; however, we can only do this if we know about and understand your concern. Therefore, for any problem or dispute that you may have with us, you acknowledge and agree that you will, as an initial matter, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to describe to us the nature of your complaint or dissatisfaction. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within thirty (30) days after our receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the informal resolution process described in this paragraph is a precondition to pursuing any other process, so please do not forget to contact us first.
Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS. BY ELECTING ARBITRATION, YOU AND WE AGREE TO ARBITRATE ANY CLAIMS, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, UNLESS YOU OPT-OUT. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ALL SUCH CLAIMS WILL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PROPOSED CLASS ACTION. WHETHER OR NOT YOU OPT-OUT, HOWEVER, YOU ARE GIVING UP A RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. YOU AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS ARE MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, local, or other court or agency, WILL have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of THESE TERMS AND this Agreement to arbitrate, including but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of THESE TERMS OR this Agreement to Arbitrate is void or voidable.
You and we agree that, except as expressly set forth below, the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be resolved informally and that relate in any way to or arise out of your use of the Services and these Terms or to any products or services sold or distributed through the Services, will be final and binding arbitration, except to the extent that either party has, in any manner, infringed upon or violated, or threatened to infringe upon or violate, the rights of either party or any third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, privacy or publicity rights or is seeking to vindicate public rights, in which case both sides acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought by either party and/or the applicable third party(ies) on an individual basis in a court located in Los Angeles County, California. You and we acknowledge that this Agreement to Arbitrate affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to arbitrations under this Agreement to Arbitrate (despite any other choice of law provision). As a limited exception to this mutual Agreement to Arbitrate, you and we agree that either party may take claims to small claims court, if the claims qualify for hearing by such court.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent.
For users in the United States, the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at adr.org/consumer or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules.
For users outside of the United States, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, or the breach thereof, will be determined by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its International Expedited Procedures (“ICDR Expedited Procedures”). The arbitration will be decided by a sole arbitrator appointed in accordance with the ICDR Expedited Procedures.
Means and Fees
In the interest of efficiency and fairness, you and we agree that the arbitration proceeding will be based solely on written submissions, unless the arbitrator deems an oral hearing strictly necessary. Should the arbitrator deem an oral hearing to be necessary, such hearing will be conducted via telephone or other electronic or technical means, or if that’s not possible, in person in the jurisdiction where you reside or at another mutually agreed upon location. The language of the arbitration will be English or, for users who reside outside of the U.S., the official language of your jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding, and judgment may be entered upon it by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense. If you initiate arbitration, we will reimburse you for filing, administration and arbitrator fees for claims totaling less than USD $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. We are not responsible for reimbursing you for costs incurred by you for legal counsel, travel or other out-of-pocket costs or expenses. We will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
Right to Opt-Out
YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE by sending an email to email@example.com. Such opt-out must be given within the earlier of thirty (30) days of approving your first purchase of products on the Services or your first upload of artwork to the Services or if we make any changes to this Agreement to Arbitrate which alter your rights, within thirty (30) days after the effective date of such revision to this Agreement to Arbitrate. Any opt-out received after such deadline will be ineffective and this Agreement to Arbitrate will remain in full force and effect, except as expressly provided above. If you opt-out of this Agreement to Arbitrate, we also will not be bound by the terms of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
Class Action Waiver
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS WILL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE SERVICES, AND NO CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE PERMITTED. In the event that this CLASS ACTION WAIVER is deemed unenforceable with respect to any particular claim otherwise subject to arbitration, then that claim will not proceed in arbitration but rather will be resolved in a court of competent jurisdiction. If that occurs, however, this Agreement to Arbitrate and this Class Action Waiver still will be fully enforceable as to all other claims, which must be resolved in arbitration on an individual basis.
Waiver of Trial by Judge or Jury
YOU AND WE AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT BY USING ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES YOU AND WE ARE GIVING UP ANY RIGHT THAT YOU OR WE MAY HAVE TO A JUDGE OR JURY TRIAL WITH REGARD TO ALL CLAIMS SUBJECT TO THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. YOU AND WE FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM HEARD IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION WILL BE HEARD BY A JUDGE INSTEAD OF A JURY, EXCEPT WHERE A JURY TRIAL WAIVER IS NOT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
>Limitation of Actions
You and we agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim of cause of action arising from or relating to use of the Services, or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or will be forever barred.

Users from Other Jurisdictions
The Services are controlled and operated by Tangible House from the United States. We do not represent or warrant that the Services, or any part thereof, are appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access the Services, do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations. You also are subject to United States export controls in connection with your use of the Services and are responsible for any violations of such controls, including, without limitation, any United States embargoes or other federal rules and regulations restricting exports. We may limit the availability of the Services, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction that we choose, at any time and in our sole discretion.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Tangible House and you regarding the Services and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Tangible House and you regarding the Services.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Tangible House’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Tangible House may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications permitted to required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given: (i) by Tangible House via email (in each case to the address that you provide) or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
The failure of Tangible House to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Tangible House. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
