The Sites may contain links to websites, Apps and content platforms operated by other parties (for example: Amazon, Apple, Roku, YouTube, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). SCTV provides these links to other websites and content platforms as a convenience, and use of these websites and content platforms is at your own risk. The linked websites, APPs and content platforms are not under the control of SCTV, and SCTV is not responsible for the content available on the other websites, Apps and content platforms. Such links do not imply SCTV's endorsement of information or material on any other website, App or content platform and SCTV disclaims all liability with regard to your access to and use of such linked websites, Apps and content platforms. Products and/or services offered on or in association with the third party linked websites and Apps are provided through independent third party vendors, and you agree to look solely to such third party vendors, and not SCTV, for any issues related to such products and/or services.

The Service includes features that operate in conjunction with certain third party social networking websites or APPs that you visit, including the use of such features to log into your account on the Sites ("Social Network Features"). While your use of the Social Network Features is governed by this TOU, your access and use of third party social networking websites and the services provided through those websites is governed by the terms of service and other agreements posted on those third party websites.

The Sites and the Service are operated by SCTV in the United States. Those who choose to access the Sites, and/or the Service from locations outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.
21. User Postings on the Sites.
The Sites may provide users with the ability to post messages on the Sites. SCTV is under no obligation to review any messages; information or content ("Postings") posted on the Sites by users and assumes no responsibility or liability relating to any Postings. Notwithstanding the above, SCTV may from time to time monitor the Postings on the Sites and may remove any Postings at its sole discretion. You grant other users of the Sites permission to access, use, record, reproduce, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, and prepare derivative works of your Postings in any medium (whether now known or later developed). We do not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any Postings that you may submit, upload, post or otherwise provide to the Sites, and it is your responsibility to protect any rights that you may have in your Postings.

22. Submitted Content.
SCTV does not claim ownership of any materials of the Postings you make available through the Sites. At SCTV's sole discretion, such materials in the Postings may be included in the Service in whole or in part or in a modified form. With respect to such materials in the Postings you submit or make available for inclusion on the Sites, you grant SCTV a perpetual, irrevocable, non-terminable, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up and non-exclusive license to use, copy, distribute, publicly perform, display, modify, create derivative works, and sublicense such materials in the Postings or any part of such materials and Postings. You hereby represent and warrant: that any materials or Postings you provide do not include anything (including, but not limited to, text, images, music or video) to which you do not have the full right to grant the license specified above in this Section entitled "Submitted Content". You also grant us the right, but not the obligation, to use your name, likeness, and identity in connection with your materials and Postings. You voluntarily waive all so-called "moral rights" or similar rights you may have in your materials and Postings.
The Sites and the Service are not directed toward children under 13 years of age nor does SCTV knowingly collect information from children under 13 or allow them to create an account or access account features. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998 provides safeguards to protect children who use the Internet by regulating the online collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. To ensure compliance with this law, SCTV does not knowingly collect or maintain information provided by children under the age of 13 unless expressly authorized by a parent or legal guardian. SCTV does not sell products, services or other activities by or for purchase by children, and we ask that minors (under the age of 13) do not submit any personal information to us. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child we will make all reasonable efforts to delete that data from our records.
24. Disclaimer of Warranties.
The Sites and Service are provided on an "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE " basis for your use, without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, and those arising from course of dealing or usage of trade. SCTV makes no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or reliability of any content available through, or the performance of, the Sites or the Service. You are responsible for verifying any information before relying on it. Use of the Sites and/or the Service is at your sole risk. SCTV does not warrant that you will be able to access or use the Sites and/or Service at the times or locations of your choosing; that the Sites or the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free; that defects will be corrected; or that the Sites or the Service are free of viruses or other harmful components.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, the foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you.
25. Limitation of Liability; Sole and Exclusive Remedy.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, SCTV, its affiliates, licensors and business partners (collectively, the "Related Parties") disclaim all liability, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, and further disclaims all losses, including without limitation direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, or special damages arising out of or in any way connected with access to or use of the Sites and/or Service, even if SCTV and/or Related Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Without limiting the foregoing, in no case will the liability of SCTV or any of the Related Parties exceed the amount that you paid to us or our designees during the 6 months prior to the time the cause of action giving rise to liability arose or $100, whichever amount is less.
SCTV will not be responsible or liable, under any circumstances, for any loss, liability, expenses or damages incurred in connection with the Site and/or the Service to the extent caused by or resulting from: (a) your acts, defaults or omissions; (b) your violation of any of any term, condition, representation or warranty contained in this TOU; or (c) acts or omissions of third parties, including third parties contracted by SCTV.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, the liability of SCTV and its affiliates shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold SCTV and the Related Parties harmless from any and all claims, demands, damages or other losses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from or arising out of your use of the Sites and/or the Service or any breach by you of this TOU or any other policies that SCTV may issue for the Sites and/or Service from time to time.
27. Governing Law; Jurisdiction.
This TOU is governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the United States of America and the law of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Except as expressly provided below (and claims proceeding in any small claims court), all disputes arising out of or related to your use of the Sites and/or the Service shall be subject to binding arbitration as provided in paragraph 28. To the extent any matter is excluded from arbitration as set forth below, all such disputes, shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Los Angeles, California and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. You and SCTV agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Sites or Services must commence within 1 year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
28. Binding Arbitration.
28.1 Arbitration Procedures.
You and SCTV agree that, except as provided in this Section 28, all disputes, controversies and claims related to this TOU (each a "Claim"), will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the "JAMS Rules") and under the terms set forth in this TOU. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Section and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Section will control and prevail.
Except as otherwise set forth in this Section, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, discovery shall be permitted pursuant to the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator's decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator's findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator's decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration (arbitrability) will be governed by the JAMS Rules and shall be determined by an arbitrator. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and SCTV may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, obtain interim equitable relief, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
By agreeing to this arbitration provision, you understand that you and SCTV waive the right to sue in court and have a jury trial.
28.2 Location and Timing.
The arbitration will take place within 30 days following receipt by either party of the other party's notice of arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted in Los Angeles, California.
You and SCTV agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Claim between SCTV and you individually. You and SCTV agree that: (a) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; (b) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity or as a private attorney general; and (c) no arbitration will be joined with any other arbitration.
You and SCTV agree that if any portion this Section 28 is found illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be severed and the remainder of the Section will be given full force and effect.
29. TOU Revisions.
This TOU may only be revised in a writing signed by SCTV, or published by SCTV on the Sites.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and SCTV as a result of this TOU or your use of the Service.
SCTV may assign this TOU, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign the TOU without SCTV's prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you will be null and void.
If any part of this TOU is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then that portion will be severed, and the remainder of the TOU will be given full force and effect.
33. Attorneys' Fees.
In the event any litigation or arbitration is brought by either party in connection with this TOU, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party all the reasonable costs, attorneys' fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in the litigation.
34. No Waiver.
Our failure to enforce any provision of this TOU will in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the right of any party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by us of any provision, condition or requirement of this TOU will not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
All notices given by you or required under this TOU will be in writing and addressed to: SCTV, LLC., 5757 W. Century Blvd., Suite 810, Los Angeles, CA 90045, USA, ATTN: Legal Department. Email: legal@SCTV.com.
36. Equitable Remedies.
You hereby agree that SCTV would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this TOU were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we will be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this TOU, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.
