SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AS SPECIFIED HERE AND, TO THE LEAST EXTENT AS ALLOWED BY LAW, SUCH EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU
15.1 Generally. You will fully indemnify, defend, and hold harmless C2C Solutions against claims brought against C2C Solutions by any third party related to your use of the Services, use or creation of Content, or User Contributions (including any Content or User Contributions that infringes upon the rights of any third party or otherwise violates any laws or regulations).

These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Arizona, USA, without giving effect to its conflict of laws’ provisions. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to these Terms. You and C2C Solutions each agree to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in Pima County, Arizona, USA. For any dispute or claim you may have arising out of or relating to the Services, Content, or these Terms, you and C2C Solutions will each give the other the opportunity to resolve it by sending the other a written description of the dispute or claim, along with contact information, relevant documents, supporting information, and the proposed resolution.

Such arbitration will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event that the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of the original case filing, then either party may elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction.
NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION FOR ANY CLAIMS COVERED BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US, INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. YOU ALSO AGREE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS INVOLVING ANOTHER PERSON’S ACCOUNT, IF WE ARE A PARTY TO THE PROCEEDING.
In no way does the above limit C2C Solutions’ ability to seek injunctive relief when we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to preserve C2C Solutions’ rights, interests, or the safety of our users. By example only, we could seek injunctive relief for breaches of Sections 5-7 of this agreement.
Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, if for any reason, any claim or cause of action, or any proceeding or other litigation of any type brought by a party against the other party, based upon, arising out of, or related to the Services, Content, or these Terms, whether with respect to contract claims, tort claims, or otherwise, proceeds in federal or state court, the parties hereby waive their respective rights to a trial by jury. This waiver applies to any subsequent amendments, renewals, supplements, or modifications to these Terms.

Both parties will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event. If such event continues for more than 30 days, either party may cancel unperformed services upon written notice. This section does not excuse either party's obligation to take reasonable steps to follow its normal disaster recovery procedures or Your obligation to pay for the Services.
We reserve the right to modify these Terms and will notify you of material modifications, such as by posting updated Terms on the Services, sending you an email to your account email, or by other reasonable means Your continued use of the Services after notice of modified Terms will constitute acceptance of an agreement to such modified Terms.
18. Your Right to Terminate. Subject to the terms described herein, you have the right to terminate these Terms at any time upon written notice to C2C Solutions.

18.3 Survival. Termination will not limit any of C2C Solutions’ other rights or remedies. Sections 6 (Ownership and Intellectual Property), Section 8 (User Feedback), Section 13 (Disclaimer of Warranties), Section 14 (Limitation of Liability and Exclusion of Certain Damages), Section 16 (Governing Law; Dispute Resolution), Section 20 (General Terms), and any other provision that, by its nature, is intended to survive termination shall survive termination of these Terms.

If you are using the Services or accessing the Content from outside of the United States, your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers may be located.
C2C Solutions makes no representation that the Services or Content are appropriate or available for use in locations outside of the United States, and access to the Services or Content from territories where such Services or Content is illegal is prohibited.

The Services are not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation, or that would subject C2C Solutions to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. You and C2C Solutions intend that the provisions of these Terms be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Accordingly, you and C2C Solutions agree that if any provision of these Terms is deemed unenforceable, where possible, it will be modified to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, which may include its deletion. Section titles are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual significance. C2C Solutions may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you. You may not assign these Terms or assign, transfer, or sublicense any rights or delegate any duties hereunder. C2C Solutions’ failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. A waiver will only be binding on C2C Solutions if it is in a written document signed by C2C Solutions. Both you and C2C Solutions warrant to each other that, in entering these Terms, neither C2C Solutions nor you have relied on, or will have any right or remedy based upon, any statement, representation, warranty, or assurance other than those expressly stated in these Terms. The preceding sentence will not limit or exclude any liability that cannot be limited or excluded under applicable law. No one other than you and C2C Solutions, or C2C Solutions’ successors and permitted assigns, will have any right to enforce any of these Terms.

In more detail, the data we collect depends on the products, services, and features of the Site that you use, and includes the following:
In general, we collect any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could be reasonably linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer (“Personal Information”) that you submit to us in the process of creating or editing your account and user profile on the Site or that you submit to us voluntarily through your use of the Site.
We may also collect Personal Information from third parties, such as Payment Processors, product vendors, and other partners. Our collection of this information allows us to provide you with our products and services, establish, maintain and support your user account on the Site, and communicate with you in accordance with our Terms.
Similar to other websites, we use tracking technologies to automatically collect certain technical information from your web browser, mobile, or other device when you visit the Site. This data may include, but is not limited to, your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of your visits. Our collection of this data, described in more detail below, allows us to provide more personalized high-quality services to you and to track usage of the Site.
A. Cookies. We automatically derive and collect certain data based on your interactions with us on the Site using cookies and similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies”). Our collection of data through Cookies includes information about your browser and Site usage patterns, which may include your IP address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, pages viewed, links clicked, whether you opened an email, and information about the device you use to access the Site. Our collection of this information allows us to improve your user experience in various ways, such as to personalize our display of the Site to you, to “remember” whether or not you are signed in, and to provide better technical support to you.

Unlike Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixels are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. The data we receive through Pixels allows us to effectively promote the Site to various populations of users, and to optimize external advertisements about the Site that appear on third-party websites.

We also collect and use information about your general location (e.g., your state of residence) and can infer your approximate location based on your IP address in order to track our general Site usage or to tailor any pertinent aspects of your user experience to the region where you are located.
We may use or disclose the Personal Information identified above for one or more of the following business purposes (“Business Purpose”):
When you create an account with us and provide us with your email we may, subject to applicable law, use your email address to send you Site-related notices (including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail), updates, news, and marketing messages. For example, when you register, you will receive a welcome email. If the Site or our services are temporarily unavailable, we may also send you an email.
Email communications you receive from us will generally provide an unsubscribe link or instructions allowing you to opt out of receiving future emails or to change your contact preferences. If you have an account with us, you can also change your contact preferences by updating your contact information within your account settings. Please remember that even if you opt out of receiving marketing e-mails, we may still send you important service information related to your account and the Site. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address, and our responses.
We may use non-personally identifiable information, such as anonymized and/or aggregated Site usage data, in any manner that does not identify individual users for the purpose of improving the operation and management of the Site, including to develop new features, functionality, and services, to conduct internal research, to better understand Site usage patterns, to resolve disputes, to troubleshoot problems, to fulfill user requests, or for security and compliance purposes. Any non-personally identifiable information that is combined with Personal Information will be treated by us as Personal Information.
If you purchase or pay for products or services via the Site, the transaction may be handled by our service providers or third-party vendor(s) responsible for processing your payment (“Payment Processors”). These entities have their own privacy policies and those terms will apply to you. Please be sure to review them at the links provided during payment processing.
When we disclose Personal Information for a Business Purpose, we enter into a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to keep that Personal Information confidential and use only for performance of the contract, and not for any other purpose. We will not sell your information, including any Personal Information to any third party, but we may share it with third parties in the circumstances described below.
We disclose Personal Information for the Business Purposes more fully described in Section 3 and to the following categories of third parties:
We reserve the right to disclose all information collected via the Site, internally, to affiliates, or to third parties, for any lawful purpose or to prevent harm to us or others. For example, and without limitation, in our discretion, we may disclose information to government regulators, law enforcement authorities, or alleged victims of identity theft. We will notify you in the event of a government or legal request for your information unless otherwise prohibited by law.
If we should ever transfer or restructure the operational ownership of the Site, such as through a merger with another entity or a reorganization of all or a part of our operational responsibilities or assets, we may disclose, transfer, assign our rights, and/or delegate our duties to your information without notice and consent, including to prospective or actual recipients or acquiring entities. Should this occur, we will require any third party receiving your Personal Information as described under this subsection to be contractually required to provide the same level of privacy compliance as provided by us under this Privacy Notice.
We cannot ensure that all of your Personal Information will be disclosed only in the ways described in this Privacy Notice. For example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your Personal Information that they collect from the Site. Even with the most rigorous information security standards, no transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure.
You can choose not to provide Personal Information. You may always decline to provide your Personal Information to us. Registering for an account is not required to access some of our online content. If you decide to register, you can choose to provide information that does not reasonably identify you to others by selecting a username that is not related to your actual name. You can also decline to provide any optional information in your account. If you choose not to provide certain Personal Information to us, some of your experiences may be affected (for example, we cannot send you our newsletter if you do not provide your email address).
We use your Personal Information as needed for the purposes for which it was collected or where you have consented to our use of such information. If you do not wish to provide information to us or do not wish to consent to the uses described in this Privacy Notice, please do not use the Site, set up an account, or supply the requested information to us.
Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have the user’s online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about that browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operations, including the Site, do not respond to DNT signals.
We do not review for accuracy or update your information regularly, but encourage you to access, review and update your Personal Information at any time. To request a copy of your Personal Information and data or for assistance regarding canceling your account, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us at 520.771.2455. We will respond to your request as soon as reasonably possible after verifying your authority to make such requests.
We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to preserve the security of your information that we maintain in connection with your use of the Site. For example, we encrypt all data with secure sockets layer (SSL) or similar technologies when we transmit your data. This, however, does not guarantee that your information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by any breach of our physical, technical or managerial safeguards. In the event that any of your Personal Information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and will notify you, as appropriate, in accordance with pertinent laws and regulations.
We or our third-party hosting providers store Personal Information in operating environments that are safeguarded against public or unauthorized access and protected from internal access with physical and technical security measures. While these measures are helpful to safeguard your Personal Information after we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet is 100% secure.
Please be aware that we are headquartered in the United States. The Site is governed by United States law. If you are using any of our products or services from outside of the United States, your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers may be located. The United States might not offer the same level of privacy protection as the country where you reside or are a citizen. BY USING THE SITE, COMMUNICATING WITH US VIA MAIL, EMAIL OR TELEPHONE, OR OTHERWISE PROVIDING INFORMATION TO US, YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSFER TO, AND PROCESSING OF, YOUR INFORMATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) may be entitled to rights under the GDPR. If you qualify, these rights are summarized below.
You may exercise these rights free of charge. These rights will be exercisable subject to limitations as provided for by the GDPR. Any requests to exercise the above-listed rights may be made to: email@example.com. If you are an EEA resident, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a Data Protection Authority about how we process your Personal Information at the following website: https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en.
If you are a California resident, you have certain privacy rights under California law, including the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). As relevant to this Site, these are: (1) the right to know what personal information is collected, disclosed or sold; (2) the right to request deletion of personal information; (3) the right to non-discrimination.
Right to Request Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete any personal information, unless an exception applies such as when we need to keep data to meet legal obligations, fix security flaws, or investigate Terms of Service violations. When we receive a verified request, we will delete your personal information and will direct our service providers to do so as well. To submit a request for deletion, you may call us at 520.771.2455, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Right to Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not deny you our services, charge you different prices or rates for services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties, provide you a different level or quality of services, or suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for services or a different level or quality of services.
California Civil Code § 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties to whom we have disclosed Personal Information (if any) for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request, please send an e-mail with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line to email@example.com.
While the Site is not intended for anyone under the age of 18, if you are a California resident who is under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available content that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When requesting removal, you must specify the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information was entered, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any content or information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) was not posted by you; (3) is anonymized so that you cannot be identified; (4) you do not follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information. Removal of your information from the Site does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that information from our systems or the systems of our service providers. We are not required to delete information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the information or render it invisible to other users and the public.
Because our privacy practices and privacy law necessarily evolve over time, we reserve the right to revise this Privacy Notice from time to time in our sole discretion, upon notice to you such as by posting updated Privacy Notice on the Site, sending you an email to your account email, or by any other reasonable means. You should periodically review this Privacy Notice to ensure that you are familiar with the most current version. Your continued use of the Site after the Effective Date posted above will constitute your acceptance of the updated Privacy Notice.
If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Notice, the ways in which we collect and use your information described in this Privacy Notice, your choices and rights regarding such use, or wish to exercise your rights under California law in Section 10 and Section 11, please do not hesitate to contact us at:
