STRINGS MUSIC FESTIVAL’S ROLE

You acknowledge that Strings Music Festival is not, unless expressly otherwise set forth within the Website, a manufacturer of any item subject to a Listing. Your communications with manufacturers and/or distributors are solely your responsibility, and any issue which may arise between you and a manufacturer or distributor, whether such issue involves a Listing or any other matter, is to be resolved between you and such manufacturer or distributor without the involvement of Strings Music Festival. You agree that Strings Music Festival shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with your purchase and/or use of any material, product, kit, machine, component or product from the Website or otherwise through Strings Music Festival. As such, you shall not name Strings Music Festival or any of its officers or equity holders as a party in any litigation or arbitration arising out any communications or transactions with a manufacturer or distributor.

For purposes of clarity, because Strings Music Festival is not a manufacturer, Strings Music Festival does not make, and should not be construed as having made, any representation or warranty of any kind concerning any products or components described in any Listing or Posting, including without limitation any representation or warranty regarding the quality, safety or legality of such materials or products, or the truth or accuracy of any descriptions associated with any Listing or Posting. Additionally, Strings Music Festival makes no representation or warranty of any kind as to the willingness or ability of either a buyer, manufacturer or distributor to complete a sale or any other transaction.

UNAVAILABILITY OF SERVICE OR WEBSITE

You are responsible, at your sole cost and expense, for providing all equipment necessary to access the Internet, the Website and/or the Services. While it is Strings Music Festival’s objective to make the Website accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, the Website may be unavailable from time to time for any reason including, without limitation, routine maintenance.

THIRD PARTY CONTENT

a. General. The Website and the Website content may contain or provide access to content provided by third parties, including, without limitation, information, blog posts, dialogue, opinions, stories, advice, statistical data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, and other materials, whether publicly or privately posted to or e-mailed or otherwise transmitted through the Website (“Third Party Content”) that may include content you find to be offensive, indecent or objectionable. The third party from whom Third Party Content originates is solely responsible for it and Strings Music Festival assumes no responsibility to verify, has no control or influence over, makes no representations regarding, and does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any Third Party Content. Accordingly, Strings Music Festival has no liability of any kind to you or any other person relating to any Third Party Content, including, without limitation, mistake, misstatement of law, omission, falsehood, defamation, obscenity, pornography, profanity, opinion, representation, and any other content contained in the Third Party Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Third Party Content. Statements of opinion and commentary in Third Party Content are those of the third party and, unless Strings Music Festival expressly states in writing to the contrary, Strings Music Festival neither endorses nor adopts as its belief any such statements. Strings Music Festival provides information in articles Strings Music Festival posts or links to through the Website only for educational and general informational purposes and not as professional advice. Strings Music Festival has made no attempt to verify any information contained in such articles.

b. Advertisers. The Website may include advertisements or offers for access to information, goods and services provided by third parties. Your correspondence or business dealings with or participation in promotions of advertisers on or through the Website, including, without limitation, payment for and delivery of goods or services and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and the advertiser. Strings Music Festival makes no representations about and disclaims any and all liability to any person for any such information, goods and services. Strings Music Festival does not (i) endorse any advertiser, (ii) provide advice on which advertiser to select, (iii) guarantee any advertiser’s information, goods or services, or (iv) act as your general contractor, agent or adviser.

c. Links. As a convenience to you, the Website may contain links to websites that are owned and operated by third parties that are not affiliated with Strings Music Festival. When you use these links, you will leave the Website and Strings Music Festival will have no ability to protect your interests. You visit linked websites at your own risk and it is your responsibility to take any protective measures to guard yourself and your computer against viruses and other destructive elements. Strings Music Festival is not responsible for and, unless it expressly states otherwise in writing, makes no warranty or representation regarding and does not endorse any linked website or any service, product or information provided on or through the linked website. Inclusion of hyperlinks to linked websites on the Website does not imply (i) that Strings Music Festival sponsors, endorses, or is affiliated or associated with the linked website, (ii) that Strings Music Festival is legally authorized to use any trademark, trade name, logo, service mark, copyright symbol, legal or official seal, or other proprietary designation or symbol displayed in or accessible through the links, or (iii) that the operator of any linked website is authorized to use any trademark, trade name, logo, copyright symbol, or other proprietary designation in which Strings Music Festival or any of its affiliates has any ownership or licensee interest.

ERRORS AND DELAYS

Neither Strings Music Festival, any supplier or licensor or any owner or agent of any such person or entity is responsible for any errors or delays in responding to an inquiry, question or submission, including, without limitation, those caused by (i) an incorrect e-mail address or telephone number provided by you, (ii) the failure of any individual to timely respond to a question or submission, or (iii) technical problems.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of the Website, to the goods, programs or services provided by Strings Music Festival, to any Items purchased through the Website or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend Strings Music Festival is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (“Dispute”), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of JAMS in force at that time. The arbitration shall be venued in Routt County, Colorado. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS rules. Should no JAMS rule regarding the selection of an arbitrator be in effect, you shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to Strings Music Festival. The direct costs of arbitration payable to the arbitration service shall be paid by Strings Music Festival (which excludes, for purposes of clarity, your attorneys’ fees and your other expenses associated with the arbitration).

Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Routt County, Colorado. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages, as limited, however, by the Disclaimers and Limitations Section of this Agreement, and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this Agreement with an arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.

THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND STRINGS MUSIC FESTIVAL WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU THUS GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTIONS. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are enforceable and are subject to very limited review by a court. By using the Services or accessing the Website, you consent to these restrictions.

Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Strings Music Festival, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Routt County, Colorado. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees from the non-prevailing party.

MISCELLANEOUS

If you are a resident of the state of Colorado or otherwise subject to the laws of the state of Colorado, any limitation of liability, mandatory arbitration, provision which would require one party to pay another party’s attorneys’ fees or legal costs, exclusion of warranties or disclaimers or other provision that is not allowed or permissible under any such law or regulation shall not apply to you. For all other individuals, any limitation of liability, mandatory arbitration, provision which would require one party to pay another party’s attorneys’ fees or legal costs, exclusion of warranties or disclaimers or other provision that is not allowed or permissible under your state laws or regulations shall not apply to you.

This Agreement, together with any other policies or agreements posted at the Website from time to time, constitutes the entire agreement between you and Strings Music Festival and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, promises and proposals, whether oral, written or electronic, between you and Strings Music Festival with respect to the Website and information, software, products, materials, programs and Services associated with it. Strings Music Festival and you are intended to be independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency between Strings Music Festival and you. This Agreement shall be subject to and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, excluding its conflict of laws principles. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. All rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
