    2. PMD Music Content - Music Users

      Use of the PMD Music Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by these Terms is strictly prohibited.

      1. As between you and PMD, all PMD Music Content is either owned or licensed by PMD. Such licenses include those granted by Partners as described below.
      2. As a Music User, you will be able to use the PMD Platform to search, find and review Piano Music that includes accompanying information consisting of an analysis of up to 25 or more different data points to help piano teachers find appropriate music for their piano students.

    3. Third Party Services

      1. In order to optimize your experience with the Services, you may, at your sole election, decide to link your social media accounts, wearable devices, non-wearable devices, calendars, applications, platforms, or programs, now in existence or hereafter developed, (collectively and including related devices, "Third-Party Services") that you utilize now or in the future. We may provide such links to your Third-Party Services only as a convenience to you.
      2. You acknowledge that we do not and have no obligation whatsoever to pre-screen, edit, review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant or make any representations regarding such services or devices. All Such Third-Party Services are not our responsibility and not under our control whatsoever.
      3. By linking such Third-Party Services with your PMD account, you represent and warrant that: (a) such Third-Party Services are used by you in your sole discretion; (b) if you have an account with a Third-Party Service, you are authorized to access and link to such Third-Party Services account; and (c) you expressly authorize us to utilize, implement, and, if applicable, share any information with or use data received from your Third-Party Services. You may un-link your Third-Party Services account(s) at any time but understand that you may (in certain instances) experience, as a result, a more limited interaction with our Services.
      4. Remember, you shall remain bound by the terms of use and privacy policy of the owners of your Third-Party Services while they are linked to our Services. You acknowledge that these Terms do not apply to any Third-Party Services, and that you assume all responsibility of and any risk arising from your use of such Third-Party Services.
    4. Fees and Payments

      As a Music User, you will have the option to purchase Piano Music through our Services. The page that displays each piece of Piano Music on our PMD Platform will include the Analytical Data, "Partner Content" (as defined below), and links that take you to web pages for purchasing Piano Music.

      1. Purchases through PMD with Third-Party Payment Processors

        We may utilize the services of third-party payment processors ("Processors") to handle your purchases of certain Piano Music available through the Services, and in such cases, we do not store your credit card or other payment method information. Such Processors may require you to store credit card or other sensitive, personal information. We make no warranties or representation with respect to any Processor and their ability to safeguard your information. It is important that you review any such Processor’s terms of use and privacy policy prior to using their purchasing services.

      2. Purchases through Publishers (or Self-Publishing Composers)

        Partners can choose to make their Piano Music available for purchase through their websites. If such publishers or self-publishing composers (collectively, "Publishers") provide us links to such websites, then the Publishers will handle your purchases of their Piano Music. In such cases, we do not store your credit card or other payment method information. These Publishers may require you to store credit card or other sensitive, personal information. We make no warranties or representation with respect to any such Publishers and their ability to safeguard your information. It is important that you review the applicable Publisher’s terms of use and privacy policy prior to using their purchasing services.

      3. Purchases through PMD Affiliate Agreements

        In addition to Processors and Publishers, PMD may make certain Piano Music available for your purchase through third-party companies we have partnered with in exchange for our earning a commission on each sale of certain Piano Music (collectively, "PMD Affiliates"). In such cases, the links to purchase certain Piano Music will lead you to a PMD Affiliate’s website. These PMD Affiliates are also third-party processors in that we do not store your credit card or other payment method information. These PMD Affiliates (aka Processors) may require you to store credit card or other sensitive, personal information. We make no warranties or representation with respect to any PMD Affiliate and their ability to safeguard your information. It is important that you review the PMD Affiliate’s terms of use and privacy policy prior to using their purchasing services. When certain Piano Music is available to be purchased through a PMD Affiliate, it does not mean that you will be charged any extra fees or higher prices for purchasing Piano music through those affiliate links. Instead, you will pay the regular price published on such PMD Affiliate’s website, and then such PMD Affiliate shares a portion of the sales price with us to help us maintain and grow the PMD Platform services and database.

      4. No Purchase Transaction Required

        PMD will make reasonable efforts to provide links to websites that sell each piece of Piano Music provided through the PMD Platform. If, however, PMD cannot reasonably find any publisher (or publishing website) that sells copies of a particular Piano Music, then PMD may choose to provide links (if PMD finds such links) to websites that offer such Piano Music free of charge. PMD strives to support publishers, composers and the piano music community at large; therefore, we want our Music Users to purchase Piano Music legally and directly from reputable publishers and sheet music sellers. We will, however, not be liable in any way if we are unable to find a publisher for a particular Piano Music, or if the link we provide leads to a Publisher or other third-party seller that does not meet a Users’s expectations or standards in any way.

You acknowledge and agree that we will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these requirements.

    2. Piano Music and Partner Content

      1. Piano Music and the Submission Process

        As a Partner, you are permitted to upload, transmit or otherwise make available, through the PMD Platform, certain piano music created by you or licensed to you by the composer or rightful copyright owner of such piano music. The defined term "Piano Music" in these Terms means the piano music owned or licensed by Partners and uploaded by Partners for PMD’s publication of such music through the Services.

        • For each such submission, you will be prompted through an online form to provide certain related information (e.g., composer, composition date, publication date, publisher, etc.), collectively referred to as "Partner Content," and all as determined in PMD’s sole discretion for purposes of providing the Services to PMD’s Users. We will also provide other information and Other PMD Terms in connection with this online form and the submission process of your Piano Music and related Partner Content.
        • Upon your proper and correct submission of each piece of piano music and all related Partner Content, PMD will review and analyze such piano music to produce Analytical Data which will be published in connection with your Piano Music and related Partner Content (as selected by PMD in its sole discretion) through the PMD Platform.
      2. Partner Content and Advertising/Promotions

        In addition to the Partner Content described above, other Partner Content you submit to PMD may include text, scripts, comments, graphics, videos, photos, sound recordings and other information, materials and advertising or promotional content,including videos that incorporate locally stored sound recordings from your own collection or one of your Third Party Services. PMD may provide Partners with certain advertising and promotional tools as part of the Service that will enable Partners to advertise or promote their Piano Music on or through the PMD Platform. You acknowledge and agree that: (a) you are fully responsible for all such advertising and promotional activities that you authorize PMD to implement on your behalf; and (b) you may terminate such activities pursuant to the Terms. All such Partner Content will be either required or optional, as determined by PMD in its sole discretion.

        You are responsible for all Piano Music and Partner Content that you upload, share or otherwise make available through the PMD Platform, and you represent and warrant that you have all necessary rights to all such content and related acts and omissions authorized by you, including advertising and promotional activities described above.

      3. Sound Recordings

        If you only own the rights in and to a sound recording, but not to the underlying musical works embodied in such sound recordings, then you must not post such sound recordings to the Services unless you have all permissions, clearances from, or are authorized by, the owner of any part of such content to submit to the Services. For the avoidance of doubt, the license rights granted by you in the Piano Music and Partner Content section include the right to reproduce sound recordings (and make mechanical reproductions of the musical works embodied in such sound recordings), and publicly perform and communicate to the public all such sound recordings (and the musical works embodied therein), all on a royalty-free basis. This means that you are granting us the right to use your Partner Content without the obligation to pay royalties to any third party, including, but not limited to, a sound recording copyright owner (e.g., a record label), a musical work copyright owner (e.g., a music publisher), a performing rights organization (e.g., ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, etc.) (a "PRO"), a sound recording PRO (e.g., SoundExchange), any unions or guilds, and engineers, producers or other royalty participants involved in the creation of the applicable Partner Content.

      4. Musical Works and Recording Artists

        If you are a composer or author of a musical work and are affiliated with a PRO, then you must notify your PRO of the royalty-free license in your Partner Content that you granted to us through these Terms. You are solely responsible for ensuring your compliance with the relevant PRO’s reporting obligations. If you have assigned your rights to a music publisher, then you must obtain the consent of such music publisher to grant the royalty-free license(s) set forth in these Terms in your Partner Content or have such music publisher enter into these Terms with us. Just because you authored a musical work (e.g., wrote a song) does not mean you have the right to grant us the licenses under these Terms. If you are a recording artist under contract with a record label, then you are solely responsible for ensuring that your use of the Services is in compliance with any contractual obligations you may have to your record label, including if you create any new recordings through the Services that may be claimed by your label.

      5. Through-To-The-Audience Rights

        All of the rights you grant in your Partner Content in these Terms are provided on a through-to-the-audience basis, meaning the owners or operators of third-party services will not have any separate liability to you or any other third party for Partner Content posted or used on such third-party service via the Services.

      6. Our Use of Partner Content

        By submitting your Piano Music and any other Partner Content to be published on the PMD Platform, you acknowledge and agree that we and our applicable Representatives may need access to view and store your Partner Content (including any Piano Music) in order for us to provide the Services as described in these Terms. You may, at any time after submitting any of your Partner Content, delete such content through your Account or by contacting us. Any such deletions may result in the deletion of all or a portion of published Partner Content of yours and may either terminate or prohibit the applicable Services previously provided to you.

      7. Partner Content Will Be Deemed Non-Confidential and Non-Proprietary

        You acknowledge and agree that all Partner Content you submit to us on or through or in connection with the Services is not confidential and may be used by us as described in these Terms. In addition, you agree NOT to submit to us on or through or in connection with the Services any Partner Content that you consider to be confidential or outside the scope of our permitted uses in these Terms. When you submit any Partner Content on or through or in connection with the Services, you agree and represent that you own all such Partner Content, or you have received all necessary permissions, clearances from, or are authorized by, the owner of all and any part of the Partner Content.

      8. License

        • You (or your licensors, such as the composer or other rightful copyright owner) retain ownership of the Piano Music and related Partner Content you provide through the PMD Platform, but by submitting such Piano Music and Partner Content, you grant PMD a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual worldwide license to use, reproduce, publish, display and/or transmit, and/or distribute your Piano Music and Partner Content, and to authorize other Users of the Service to view and access your Piano Music and Partner Content, all in any format and on any platform, either now known or hereinafter invented, all in accordance with these Terms.
        • As the Representative of an Organization representing the composer of the applicable Piano Music, you further grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide license to use the Organization’s Name (including all related trademarks, logos and other related company, product and service information and materials), and the applicable composer’s image, voice, and likeness to identify the Organization and composer as the publisher and composer (respectively) of the applicable Piano Music; provided, however, that your ability to provide an image, voice, and likeness may be subject to limitations determined by us or applicable laws due to age restrictions, if relevant to the composer. This license includes the right for PMD to use all Partner Content related to the applicable Piano Music.
        • The licenses granted to PMD in these Terms allow us to access, view, store, distribute, publish and display the Piano Music and Partner Content in any arrangement, format, layout, etc. through or in connection with the PMD Platform. These terms mean, for illustration purposes, that PMD may provide certain Piano Music for our Users to purchase either as sales by PMD, Partners, Processors, or PMD Affiliates.
      9. Optional Verification or Approval

        You acknowledge and agree that we, in our sole discretion, may or may not choose to verify or approve the information and materials in any Partner Content.

    3. Other Uses of Partner Content

      1. By submitting Partner Content to or through or in connection with the Services, you waive any rights to prior inspection or approval of any marketing or promotional materials related to such Partner Content. You also waive any and all rights of privacy, publicity, or any other rights of a similar nature in connection with all such Partner Content, or any portion thereof. To the extent any moral rights are not transferable or assignable, you hereby waive and agree never to assert any and all moral rights, or to support, maintain or permit any action based on any moral rights that you may have in or with respect to any Partner Content you submit to or through or in connection with the Services.
      2. We reserve the right to cut, edit or refuse to publish, your Partner Content at our sole discretion. We have the right to remove, disallow, block or delete any posting you make on our Services if, in our sole opinion, your post does not comply with the content standards set forth in our Terms.
      3. We have the right; but not the obligation; in our sole discretion to remove, disallow, block or delete any Partner Content: (a) that we consider to violate these Terms; or (b) in response to complaints from other Users, Visitors, or third parties, with or without notice and without any liability to you. As a result, we recommend that you save copies of any Partner Content that you post to the Services on your personal device(s) in the event that you want to ensure that you have permanent access to copies of such Partner Content.
      4. We accept no liability with respect to any Piano Music or Partner Content submitted by Partners or any other Users and published by us. If you wish to file a complaint about information or materials uploaded by other Users, follow the requirements set forth in the Copyright and Intellectual Property Infringement Claims section.
    4. PMD Music Content - Partners

      Use of the PMD Music Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by these Terms is strictly prohibited.

      1. As between you and PMD, except as otherwise specified in the Terms, all PMD Music Content is either owned or licensed by PMD. For clarification purposes, our inclusion of "Piano Music" as part of the defined term "PMD Music Content" just means that if you are not the Partner of certain Piano Music, then that Piano Music is owned by someone else.
      2. You acknowledge and agree that we may generate revenues, increase goodwill or otherwise increase our value from your use of the PMD Platform, including, by way of example and not limitation, through the sale of advertising, sponsorships, promotions, usage data and digital currency, and except as specifically permitted by us in these Terms, you will have no right to share in any such revenue, goodwill or value whatsoever.
      3. You further acknowledge that, except as specified in these Terms, you: (a) have no right to receive any income or other consideration from any Partner Content or any related PMD Music Content; and (b) are prohibited from exercising any rights to monetize or obtain consideration from any Partner Content or PMD Music Content within the Services.

For example, we may change certain data points accompanying one of your pieces of Piano Music after such music was previously made available for display through our PMD Platform.
      5. We do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity, appropriateness, or quality of any PMD Music Content (whether it be the Piano Music, Partner Content, Analytical Data, etc.), and under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any PMD Music Content.
      6. We accept no liability with respect to any Partner Content or PMD Music Content submitted and/or published by us through the PMD Platform.

      If you choose to send us or our Representatives any ideas for or comments about products, services, features, modifications, enhancements, content, refinements, technologies, content offerings (such as audio, visual, or other types of content), promotions, strategies, or product/feature names, or any related documentation, artwork, computer code, diagrams, or other materials (collectively "Feedback"), then regardless of what your accompanying communication may say, you agree to the following terms. PMD has no obligation to review, consider, or implement your Feedback, or to return to you all or part of any Feedback for any reason.

      2. You acknowledge and agree that all PMD Content, the PMD Platform, PMD Website (including the "look and feel"), all brands, logos and trademarks provided by us, and all other Services, the underlying technology, software, tools and the like, and the related intellectual property rights, including copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets, contained within or provided through the Services and PMD Content in any form or medium (collectively, "PMD Property") are owned by us, our Suppliers, other Users or any other applicable third parties. Neither these Terms (nor your access to the Services) transfers to you or any third party any rights, title or interest in or to the PMD Property, including any related intellectual property rights, except for the limited access rights expressly provided in these Terms. There are no implied licenses granted under these Terms. You are not permitted to use any of the PMD Property in any way other than as specifically permitted in these Terms without the prior written consent of us or our applicable Supplier.

    10. Informal Dispute Procedure

      Prior to formally filing any claim against us or any of our Representatives ("Dispute"), you must use good faith efforts to attempt to resolve such Dispute informally by submitting to PMD a written notice of the Dispute describing the nature and basis of the Dispute and the requested relief ("Dispute Notice"). Upon receiving such Dispute Notice, we will use good faith efforts to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you within sixty (60) days of such receipt. If a Dispute is not resolved within one hundred and twenty (120) days after the date of our first contact with you, then either party may bring a formal proceeding through the arbitration procedures as described below.

    11. Arbitration

      Read this section on Arbitration carefully. It is part of your agreement with PMD under these Terms and affects your rights. The following contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

      1. All "Arbitration Cases," which means all claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as specified in the Equitable Relief and Claims Not Subject to Arbitration sections) related to your use of the Services or to the Terms that cannot be resolved informally as required in these Terms, shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis in accordance with this section. Except as specified in these Terms, PMD is not committed nor obligated to use an alternative dispute resolution entity to resolve disputes with you.Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by both parties, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English.
      2. U.S. Arbitration Rules

        If an Arbitration Case involves a User or Visitor based or residing in the U.S. or use of the subject Services occurred in the U.S., then arbitration shall be initiated through the "American Arbitration Association" ("AAA"), an established alternative dispute resolution provider ("ADR Provider") that offers arbitration as set forth in these Terms. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with these Terms.

      3. International Arbitration Rules

        If an Arbitration Case involves a User or Visitor based or residing outside of the U.S. or the use of the subject Services occurred outside of the U.S., then arbitration shall be initiated through the "International Centre for Dispute Resolution" ("ICDR"), an established ADR Provider that offers arbitration as set forth in these Terms. If ICDR is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with these Terms.

      4. The arbitration requirements for all Arbitration Cases shall apply to all Users, Visitors, and PMD, and to any such party’s Representatives, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all beneficiaries of Services (if applicable) provided in these Terms.
      5. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator, unless the claim exceeds $100,000.00, in which case the arbitration shall be conducted by a panel of three arbitrators. All such arbitrators shall be or was an attorney and has professional experience in the business of teaching piano, piano performance, piano music and related analytics (music theory, etc.) of piano music, the music publishing industry and in connection with related technology, similar platforms, databases, mobile apps and websites.
      6. Within twenty (20) days after the commencement of arbitration, each party shall select the specified persons to serve as arbitrator(s). If the parties cannot mutually agree in good faith (and in writing) to the selection of the arbitrator(s) within this 20-day period, the AAA or ICDR (whichever applicable) shall, at either party’s written request, complete the appointments that have not been made.
      7. The "Expedited Procedures" under the AAA or ICDR (whichever applicable) shall apply in any Arbitration Case in which no disclosed claim or counterclaim exceeds $100,000.00, not including interest or reasonable attorneys’ fees and arbitration costs.
      8. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than ten thousand U.S. dollars (U.S. $10,000.00) may be resolved, under the AAA or ICDR (whichever applicable), through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. Accordingly, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed in writing by both parties.
      9. For Arbitration Cases with the total amount of the award sought is ten thousand U.S. dollars (U.S. $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the arbitration rules under the AAA or ICDR (whichever applicable). Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of PMD’s principal place of business, unless the parties mutually agree otherwise in writing. If User’s or Visitor’s principal place of residence or business is located outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearings and how virtual appearance or attendance by either party will be set up. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction located within 100 miles of PMD’s principal place of business. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorneys’ fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider, unless the arbitrator determines that User’s or Visitor’s claim is frivolous, then PMD may seek for User or Visitor to cover PMD’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and all fees and costs of the ADR Provider.
      10. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator in any Arbitration Case until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
      11. The award for an Arbitration Case shall be made within six (6) months of the filing of the notice of intention to arbitrate (demand), and the arbitrator(s) shall agree to comply with this schedule before accepting appointment. This time limit, however, may be extended by the arbitrator(s) for good cause shown, or by the parties’ mutual written agreement.
      12. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, the parties agree that: (a) the award (as described in section 11.11) may be appealed pursuant to the optional appellate arbitration rules under the AAA or ICDR, whichever applicable ("Appellate Rules"); (b) such award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall, at a minimum, be a reasoned award; and (c) such award shall not be considered final until after the time for filing the notice of appeal pursuant to the Appellate Rules has expired. Appeals must be initiated within thirty (30) days of receipt of an award, as defined by the Appellate Rules, by filing a "Notice of Appeal" with any AAA or ICDR office (whichever applicable). Following the Notice of Appeal process, the decision rendered by the Arbitrator tribunal may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
      13. If arbitration is initiated in compliance with the Arbitration section, the arbitrator(s) will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of User or Visitor and PMD, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator(s) shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator(s) shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to the claimant under applicable law, the AAA or ICDR rules (whichever applicable), and the terms of these Terms. The arbitrator(s) shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator(s) has the same authority to award relief that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator(s) is binding upon User or Visitor and PMD as specified in this section.
      14. Confidentiality

        All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including the award of the arbitrator and each party’s compliance with such award, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain all such confidentiality unless otherwise required by law.

      15. Equitable Relief During Arbitration

        Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Arbitration section, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under the Arbitration section or any other of the Terms.

    12. Miscellaneous

      1. Equitable Relief

        You acknowledge and agree that your obligations regarding non-competition, non-solicitation, Confidential Information and any intellectual property rights hereunder have a unique, very substantial and immeasurable value to PMD, and breach of such obligations would cause irreparable harm and unascertainable damages to PMD; entitling PMD to injunctive relief and any other available remedies, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, without posting a bond or security or proving any actual damages, and in addition to any monetary relief as may be recoverable by law.

      2. Claims Not Subject to Arbitration

        Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Informal Dispute Procedure, Arbitration, and Equitable Relief sections, any claims (including those related to equitable relief below) of defamation, libel or privacy, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, infringement or misappropriation of a party’s patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets (or any other intellectual property rights), User’s material breach of these Terms (including your failure to pay any required fees) related to your use of the Services shall not be subject to the arbitration terms in the Arbitration section so long as the parties followed the Informal Dispute Procedure in the Informal Dispute Procedure section. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, either party may submit to a court of law to enforce an arbitration award, and PMD may submit to a court of law to enforce these Terms or seek injunctive or equitable relief.

      3. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions

        Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THESE TERMS MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED (AS PERMITTED IN THESE TERMS) ON AN INDIVIDUAL PERSON OR ORGANIZATION BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER OR VISITOR (WHETHER AN INDIVIDUAL OR A BUSINESS, ORGANIZATION OR ENTITY OR ANY RELATED AFFILIATE) CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER OR VISITOR (WHETHER AN INDIVIDUAL OR A BUSINESS, ORGANIZATION OR ENTITY OR ANY RELATED AFFILIATE).

      4. Waiver of Jury Trial

        THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY for any claims and disputes not subject to arbitration, and those that are subject to arbitration shall be resolved in accordance with the arbitration terms above. In the event any litigation should arise between you and PMD in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND PMD WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.

      5. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

        The validity, construction and interpretation of the Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Ohio, excluding its conflict of laws provisions, and will specifically not be governed by the United Nations Conventions on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, if otherwise applicable. In any circumstances where the arbitration terms in the Arbitration section permit the parties to litigate in court (including either party seeking equitable relief as permitted in the Equitable Relief section), the parties irrevocably agree that jurisdiction and venue shall be that of the federal and state courts located in the City of Cincinnati and in Hamilton County, Ohio, for such purpose, and you agree to accept service by delivery through first class mail. If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with these Terms, you agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements in doing so.

      6. Time Limit

        Notwithstanding any to the contrary in these Terms, except for those subject to the Equitable Relief or Claims Not Subject to Arbitration sections, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else such claim or cause of action will be barred forever.

      7. Attorneys’ Fees

      9. Entire Agreement

      10. No Waivers

        No delay or omission by either party to exercise any right or power it has (in whole or in part) under these Terms will be construed as a waiver of such right or power.

All waivers must be in writing and signed by the party waiving its rights.

      11. Severability

        If any provision of these Terms is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such provision shall be deleted and the other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Upon such determination, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to substitute or modify (to the greatest extent possible) the invalid or voidable provision with a valid provision most closely approximating the economic effect and intent of the invalid provision that was originally contemplated by the parties and so that such revised provision is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.

      12. Interpretation
