Reviewing a Translator.

You understand and acknowledge that you are solely responsible for any reviews you submit or contribute, and you, not Company, have full responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness. Accordingly, you are solely responsible for any potential legal claim, controversy, or dispute that may be instituted by a translator or other third parties as a result of or in connection with your review. Company is not responsible or liable to any third party (including, without limitation, translators) for the content or accuracy of any reviews posted by you or any other user of the Site, even if that review is defamatory or otherwise legally actionable. You acknowledge and agree that you will notify Company of any error or inaccurate statement in your review, and that if you do not do so, Company may rely on the accuracy of such review.

A chargeback in breach of the foregoing obligation is a material breach of these Terms. If you initiate a chargeback in violation of these Terms, you agree that Company may dispute or appeal the chargeback and instate collection action against you and take such other action it deems appropriate.

YOUR USE OF LINGOLY, THE SITE, ITS MATERIAL AND CONTENT, AND ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. LINGOLY, ITS MATERIALS AND CONTENT, AND ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL COMPANY, ITS AFFILIATES, OR THEIR LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, REPSENTATIVES, SHAREHOLDERS, OFFICERS, OR DIRECTORS BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, LINGOLY, THE SITE, ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO IT, ANY CONTENT ON THE SITE OR SUCH OTHER WEBSITES, INCLUDING ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PROPERTY DAMAGE, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.
IN NO EVENT SHALL COMPANY’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF LINGOLY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU IN A ONE-YEAR PERIOD OR THE LOWEST AMOUNT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
Release. In addition to the recognition that Company is not a party to any agreement between a translator and its customer, you hereby release Company and its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, service providers, agents, representatives, successors, and assigns from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any dispute you have with another user, whether it be at law or in equity that exists as of the time the translation services were performed. This release includes, without limitation, any disputes regarding the performance and quality of translation services provided through the Site and the requests for refunds based upon such disputes.
TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE, YOU HEREBY WAIVE THE PROTECTIONS OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542 (AND ANY ANALOGOUS LAW IN ANY OTHER APPLICABLE JURISDICTION) WHICH SAYS: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY."
This release will not apply to a claim that Company failed to meet its obligations under these Terms.
Without limiting the foregoing, Company has the right to cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Company to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Site. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING, OR TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF, INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
However, Company does not undertake to review all material before it is posted on the Site, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, Company assumes no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party. Company has no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this Section.
Governing Law. All matters arising out of or relating to these Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of California; and excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). However, notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, this Arbitration Provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq.).
Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration; Jurisdiction. YOU AND COMPANY ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND COMPANY ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY THROUGH YOUR USE OF LINGOLY WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION IN THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES, IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Section. (The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or these Terms is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR COMPANY WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
Limitation on Time to File Claims. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION, CLAIM, OR DISPUTE YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR LINGOLY MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION, CLAIM, OR DISPUTE ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION, CLAIM, OR DISPUTE IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Prevailing Language and Location. The English language version of these Terms will be controlling in all respects and will prevail in case of any inconsistencies with translated versions, if any. The Site is controlled and operated from Company’s facilities in the State of California, in the United States of America.
Assignment. You will not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your obligations under these Terms without Company’s prior written consent. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms. Company may transfer or assign these Terms without restriction.
No Waivers. No waiver by Company of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Company to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
No Third Party Beneficiaries. These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than you.

Notices sent by email will be effective when Company sends the email, and notices provided by posting will be effective upon posting. It is your responsibility to keep your email address current.

Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
