    Indemnity, Disclaimers and Limits on Liability


    You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless BIO-UP, its affiliated companies (collectively “BIO-UP”), and their respective affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, licensors, licensees, agents, and representatives (the “Covered Entities”) against all liability, claims, costs, damages, settlements, and expenses (including interest, penalties, attorney fees and expert witness fees) (“Liabilities”) incurred by any Covered Entity in any way arising out of or relating to your breach of these Terms or our other policies referenced in these Terms, including but not limited to any use of any of your User Content that infringes the rights of third parties.  BIO-UP reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and if BIO-UP assumes defense and control, you agree to cooperate with our defense of an applicable claim. You agree not to settle any matter related to the Online Services, including indemnified claims, without our prior written consent. We will use reasonable efforts to inform you of any indemnified matter.




    Limitations on Liability

    THE COVERED ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR (A) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, Statutory Damages or penalties, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION), EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF these types of DAMAGES, OR (B) LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO REPUTATION arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (i) these Terms or site or services, and (ii) any acts or omissions of any of the covered entities in connection with these terms or the site or services.  The maximum remedy available to you under these terms AND in connection with the site and services is reimbursement of any amounts you have paid to us DURING THE SIX MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO ANY CLAIM.

    Legal Disputes

    In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you hereby release the Covered Entities from any and all claims, demands, damages (actual and consequential), losses and liabilities of every kind or nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to these disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

    Exceptions to Disclaimers and Exclusions of Damages

    If you live in a jurisdiction that does not allow disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, the foregoing disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you. For New Jersey residents, the limitations set forth above are inapplicable where attorneys’ fees, court costs, or other damages are mandated by statute.

    Timing of Claims

    You must bring any claim you have against BIO-UP relating to these Terms or the Online Services within two years from the date of accrual of the applicable claim.

    Legal Disputes and Arbitration Agreement

    Initial Dispute Resolution

    We are available by email at contact@biouptech.com to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Online Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.

    Terms of Service and Binding Arbitration Agreement

    If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to the preceding paragraph, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Online Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS on a non-confidential basis in accordance with the provisions of its then-effective rules, including its streamlined procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity.  The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act shall exclusively govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision and the parties hereby reject, waive and disclaim the application of any state Arbitration Act.

    The JAMS rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/, or by calling JAMS at 1.800.352.5267. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, BIO-UP will pay the additional cost. A request for payment of fees should be submitted to JAMS along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and BIO-UP will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to JAMS. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.

    The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of
    arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

    Class Action Waiver

    The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

    Exception – Small Claims Court Claims

    Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.

    30 Day Right to Opt Out

    You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the preceding three paragraphs by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: PO Box 60695, Pasadena, CA 91116 or by fax to 626-229-9994. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of registering to use the Online Services, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those Sections. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, BIO-UP also will not be bound by them.

    Exclusive Venue for Litigation

    Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Los Angeles, CA (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The
    parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in Los Angeles, CA for any litigation other than small claims court actions. The Parties irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction in Los Angeles, CA for any litigation and hereby waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction of Los Angeles, CA over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) these Terms or the Online Services, and (b) any acts or omissions of any of the Covered Entities in connection with these Terms or the Online Services.

As set forth in the following paragraphs, we have a policy of responding to notices of alleged copyright and trademark infringement that comply with applicable laws, including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the United States, and terminating accounts of repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances. To report a problem other than copyright or trademark infringement, please email contact@DrinkBio-Up.com. We may, in our sole discretion, limit, suspend, or terminate any user’s access or account, delay or remove Content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users from using the Online Services, if we think that they are creating problems or possible legal liabilities, infringing the intellectual property rights of third parties, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies (for example, and without limitation, circumventing temporary or permanent suspensions or harassing our employees or other users).

    Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Policy

    BIO-UP will respond to proper notifications of claimed copyright infringement with respect to material posted by users, and will take appropriate action including removing and disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. We also will, in appropriate circumstances, terminate the accounts of registered users whom we find to be repeat infringers. We also may, in our discretion, suspend and/or terminate the account of any registered user who infringes another’s intellectual property right, whether or not there is repeat infringement.

    If you believe your copyright has been infringed, you should submit notice to:

    Copyright Agent

    4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
    5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
    6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

    If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed against material posted by you, you may make a counter-notification with our Designated Agent listed above, provided that such counter-notification must be in writing and contain the following requisite information:

    1. Your physical or electronic signature.
    2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
    3. A statement by you under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification.
    4. Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you are located (or in the State of Maryland, U.S.A., if you reside outside of the U.S.A.), and that you will accept service of process from the person who filed the notice of copyright infringement or an agent of such person.
