A. Responsibility for User Content. You understand that you are solely responsible for your User Content, however submitted. ShopRunner does not control the User Content made available via the Services and therefore does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity, quality or lawfulness of User Content.

Further, ShopRunner cannot ensure the security of any information you post on publicly available areas of the Services. You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to content or other User Content that is offensive or objectionable.
We have no obligation to monitor any User Content made available via the Services.

You further authorize ShopRunner to publish your User Content in a searchable format that may be accessed by users of the Services and the Internet.

When you contribute, upload or otherwise provide your User Content through the Services, you agree to comply with the following requirements:
A. User Content must be your own. All User Content must be created by you and you must have all rights in the User Content; or, all persons who contributed in any way or have any rights to your User Content, or otherwise appear in the User Content, must have given you permission to upload and distribute the User Content through the Services and elsewhere.__Upon ShopRunner’s request, you will furnish ShopRunner any documentation, substantiation or releases necessary to verify your compliance with these Terms.__
B. No use of others’ User Content or infringing third-party materials. Your User Content should not contain any content that infringes third party rights, including third party trademarks and copyrights. Do not use any User Content that belongs to other people without their permission–this means you absolutely may not include any content owned or created by someone else, including, without limitation, no uploading or copying of content you found elsewhere on the Internet without proper permission.
C. Only you, your friends and family may appear in images or videos. If you upload photos or videos through the Services, make sure they are of you or of you and someone you know–but only with their express permission to post it.

E. Keep User Content relevant. Your User Content should relate to the content available in connection with the Services and should be intended to add to the discussion–it should not include irrelevant topics or postings.
F. Follow codes of social decency. Be respectful. Do not make personal attacks. Express yourself with non-offensive individual self-expression so we can continue to build a community for everyone to enjoy. Cursing, harassing, stalking, posting insulting comments, personal attacks, gossip or similar actions are prohibited. Your User Content may not threaten, abuse or harm others. Your User Content may not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, religion, gender, sexual preference or physical handicap or that are defamatory, slanderous, indecent, obscene, pornographic or sexually explicit. If you think your User Content might offend someone, chances are it will–so it shouldn’t be posted through the Services.
G. No User Content that is violent, illegal or promotes inappropriate activity. Your User Content must not violate any law. Your User Content may not promote any illegal activity and your User Content may not promote violence nor describe how to perform a violent act. If you do upload or post User Content that is illegal, violent in nature, or otherwise inappropriate, we reserve the right to take any action that we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion, including without limitation reporting you to law enforcement.
H. Represent yourself and your opinions truthfully. Do not impersonate any other person, user, ShopRunner or other company. Do not upload or post User Content that you know is false, fraudulent, deceptive, inaccurate, misleading or that misrepresents your identity or affiliation with a person or ShopRunner or any other company. If you leave product reviews, such reviews should be based upon your truthful, personal experiences with the product. If you received any sort of incentive, such as free merchandise or discounts, on the product you are reviewing, you agree to clearly disclose that fact in your review.
I. Keep private information private. Remember that Community Forums are public and User Content will be accessible and viewable by other users. Do not post personal information (for example, never reveal your passwords, phone number, address, email address or similar information). If there is something you do not want the world to see, do not post it through the Services. And, what is true for you is true for others. Your User Content may not reveal another person’s address, phone number, email address, credit card number or any information that may be used to track, contact, or impersonate that individual or that is personal in nature.

We are not responsible or liable for the conduct of any user. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between you and other users. Please exercise common sense and your best judgment in your interactions with others, when you submit or post any personal or other information, and in all other online activities.
K. No User Content for commercial purposes.Your User Content may not advertise or promote a product or service. You may not use your User Content to raise money for anyone or for a pyramid or other multi-tiered marketing scheme.
L. Do not damage the Services or anyone’s computers.User Content may not contain viruses, Trojan horses, spyware or any other technologies that could impact the operation of the Services or any computer system.

10. COPYRIGHTS AND OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND RELATED COMPLAINTS
You may not use the Services for any purpose or in any manner that infringes the rights of any third party. ShopRunner encourages you to report any content made available through the Services that you believe infringes your rights. Only the intellectual property rights owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner can report potentially infringing content. If you have a good faith belief that content made available through the Services infringes your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, please follow the procedures set forth below.
In accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the__“DMCA__”), ShopRunner has a designated agent for receiving notices of copyright infringement and ShopRunner follows the notice and take down procedures of the DMCA.

If you believe that any content made available through the Services contains content that violates your rights other than copyrights, please provide ShopRunner at least the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (c) an explanation what rights you own/have and why you believe the content infringes your rights sufficient for us to evaluate your complaint; and (d) accurate contact information for you.

We have a policy of terminating the accounts of users who (in our reasonable discretion) are repeat infringers.
It is often difficult to determine if your intellectual property rights have been violated or if the DMCA requirements have been met. We may request additional information before we remove any infringing material. If a dispute develops as to the correct owner of the rights in question, we reserve the right to remove your content along with that of the alleged infringer pending resolution of the matter.

ALL LIMITATION OF LIABILITY OF ANY KIND IN THESE TERMS ARE MADE FOR THE BENEFIT OF BOTH SHOPRUNNER AND THE SHOPRUNNER PARTIES.
19. GOVERNING LAW
These Terms shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the United States, without regard to the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act. Choice of law rules and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply.
20. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
If you are a resident of the United States, then, as part of these Terms of Service, you and ShopRunner each agree as follows (the “Arbitration Agreement”):
Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Services (including without limitation the arbitrability of any claim or controversy) shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act. The parties waive their rights to file suit in court to assert any allegation, claim, or cause of action against the other, or to have a jury trial on any allegation, claim, or cause of action, and any right to do so (including without limitation the right to a jury trial) is hereby waived. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and ShopRunner retain the right to seek remedies in small claims court for disputes or claims within that court’s jurisdiction, and ShopRunner retains the right to apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for provisional or conservatory relief, including without limitation pre-arbitral attachments or injunctions, and to adjudicate disputes relating to the infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property.
Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Services or this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the procedural and substantive laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without reference to choice-of-law rules. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures then in effect. The arbitration shall be presided over by a single arbitrator in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. In the event this venue will cause undue hardship to you, then, the discretion of the arbitrator, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted, with the parties participating through telephonic or video conference hearings, or at a location reasonably convenient to the parties in the state in which you reside at the time the arbitration is commenced, provided that it is within the Continental U.S. To the extent that any of the foregoing provisions are inconsistent with JAMS applicable standards then in effect, such JAMS rules shall apply.
Claims subject to this Arbitration Agreement may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis and you will not be able to participate in an arbitration as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to that claim.
All aspects of the arbitration and award shall be confidential, except to the extent disclosure is necessary in connection with an application to a court for a preliminary or permanent injunction, a petition to confirm or vacate an award, to obtain legal or other professional advice necessary for the protection of a party’s rights, or as required by law or judicial decision.
Subject to you demonstrating that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, ShopRunner will pay as much of the fees charged to you by JAMS as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost prohibitive to you.
The arbitrator will not have authority to award punitive or exemplary damages, and the parties waive any right to recover such damages. As part of the award, the prevailing party shall be awarded its costs, including without limitation arbitration fees, expert witness fees, if any, and reasonable attorney’s fees.
If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, for any reason, that specific portion shall be severed from the rest, but such severance shall not affect the enforceability of the remainder of this agreement. No waiver of any provision of this Arbitration Agreement will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving the provision, and any such waiver shall not waive or affect any other provision of this agreement.
THE FOREGOING PROVISIONS LIMIT CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE JAMS RULES AND THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION TERMS, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF; PROVIDED THAT NOTHING HEREIN WILL RESTRAIN A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT’S RIGHT, IF ANY, TO SEEK PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AS PERMITTED BY LAW. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on the “My Account” pages applicable at the time of your termination or by calling member services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, ShopRunner may immediately terminate these Terms or immediately suspend or terminate your access to the Service or any aspects of the Service at ShopRunner’s discretion and without notice, including, without limitation, for your breach of these Terms or other conduct by you that ShopRunner considers inappropriate. ShopRunner may send notice of such termination or suspension to you at the e-mail address you provide in your member registration or such other e-mail address as you may later provide to ShopRunner. If you cease to be a ShopRunner member, your membership will terminate and your right to access and use the Service will terminate immediately. If you remove a guest, the guest membership will terminate immediately.
Upon termination of these Terms by either party, your right to access and use the Service will terminate immediately. You agree that no ShopRunner Party shall be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of the Services, and you further agree that we will have no liability to you for any costs, losses, damages, or liabilities arising out of or related to our termination of these Terms due to your breach. Upon termination of your access to the Services or the Services, or upon demand by ShopRunner, you must destroy all Materials and all related documentation including without limitation immediately discontinuing the use of any links to the Services. Any provisions of these Terms, which, by their terms, ought to survive, shall survive any termination of these Terms.
If we terminate the Service or terminate your membership other than for your breach, you will be entitled to a refund of an amount equal to the membership fee you paid multiplied by the fraction “n/12” (where “n” is the number of full months remaining in your subscription), for annual memberships, or “n/30” (where “n” is the number of days remaining in your subscription), for monthly memberships. Such refund will be ShopRunner’s maximum liability to you in the event that ShopRunner terminates your membership other than for your breach. For more details about the ShopRunner membership and subscription fees, see our Policies.
You understand and agree that ShopRunner will determine your compliance with these Terms in its sole, reasonable discretion. Any violation of these Terms may be referred to law enforcement authorities.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with the prior written consent of a duly authorized ShopRunner employee. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. Any heading, caption or paragraph title contained in these Terms is inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way defines or explains any paragraph or provision hereof. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against ShopRunner by virtue of having drafted these Terms.
