Release Of Claims; Indemnity

Customer acknowledges that Sharemeister offers the Program through Merchants and that the Merchant, and not Sharemeister, is responsible for the quality of the goods and services purchased or otherwise supplied by the Merchant. Customer hereby releases Sharemeister from any and all claims and liability related to any goods or services of any Merchant, any act or omission of any Merchant, and any act or omission of any other user of the Services.

Customer acknowledges that it is aware of the following provisions of section 1542 of the California Civil Code: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." Customer expressly and voluntarily waives each and all claims, rights, or benefits it has or may have, whether such claims are currently known, unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, under section 1542 of the California Civil Code, or any other similar law of any other jurisdiction, to the full extent that it may lawfully waive such claims, rights and benefits in connection with this release.

Customer shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Sharemeister against any and all claims, actions, proceedings, suits, liabilities, losses, damages, costs, expenses and attorneys' fees arising in connection with or relating to Customer's use of the Services or the Site, or Customer's breach of any provision of these Terms and Conditions, including, without limitation, any claim by any third party who suffers any injury in connection with the use of any Services or the use or consumption of any goods or services obtained from any Merchant. Sharemeister reserves the right to assume the sole control of the defense and settlement of any claim, action, suit or proceeding for which you are obliged to provide indemnification hereunder. Customer will cooperate with Sharemeister with respect to such defense and settlement. This provision shall survive the termination of your right to use the Site.


All disputes between you and Sharemeister arising or relating to: (a) these Terms and Conditions; (b) the Site; (c) any advertisement or promotion relating to these Terms and Conditions or the Site; (d) the Services; or (e) the relationship which results from these Terms and Conditions (including relationships with third parties who are not party to these Terms and Conditions) shall be resolved by binding individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association's rules for consumer-related disputes. You agree that the arbitration shall be held in California or at any other location that is mutually agreed upon by you and Sharemeister. Neither you nor Sharemeister will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms and Conditions. If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable in a particular case, then this entire arbitration agreement shall be null and void in that case. This agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and, where consistent, California law. Sharemeister reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes filed before the effective date of the amendment. This provision will survive the termination of your right to use the Site.
