User Obligations

By installing, accessing, or using this Site, you hereby represent that you are of the legal age to execute a legally enforceable contract under the laws of the state and/or country in which you reside and will, at all times, provide true, accurate, current, and complete information when submitting information to this Site, including, without limitation, when you provide any information to NatureCity via an email or any registration or submission form found on the Site. If you provide any false, inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, NatureCity reserves the right to in its sole discretion immediately and without notice terminate your access to and use of this Site and/or cancel any of your pending product purchases or registrations with NatureCity. In addition, you agree to abide by all applicable laws or regulations with respect to your use of this Site. By making communications or submitting information, success stories, testimonials, feedback, and/or photographs (collectively, “Submissions”) to the Site, chat rooms, message or discussion boards or other forums, such as success stories or testimonials, or in contests, you agree that such Submission is not confidential for all purposes and we shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any such Submissions by us or others. If you make any such Submission, you automatically grant NatureCity a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, world-wide nonexclusive license to use, reproduce, create derivative works from, modify, publish, post, disseminate edit, translate, distribute, perform, and display the Submission (including, without limitation, your photograph or likeness) in any media or medium, or any form, format, or forum now known or hereafter developed and waive any and all moral rights in the Submissions. NatureCity may sublicense its rights through multiple tiers of sublicensees. NatureCity is not and shall be under no obligation (1) to maintain any Submissions in confidence; (2) to pay compensation for any Submissions; or (3) to respond to any Submissions.

You also acknowledge and agree that use of the Internet and this Site are solely at your own risk. While NatureCity has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Site, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Site over the Internet or any other form of global communication network cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, NatureCity is not to any degree responsible or liable for the security of any information transmitted via the Internet, the accuracy of the information contained on the Site, or for the consequences of any reliance on such information. You must make your own determination as to these issues.

User Name Handling Policy

Registration as a user for access to certain areas of the Site may require both a user name and a password or adherence to other particular access requirements as designated by NatureCity in its sole and absolute discretion. Only one user can use one user name and password and, thus, one account. By limiting access in this fashion, it helps avoid unauthorized usage by other persons, institutions, or entities because anyone with knowledge of both your user name and password can gain entry to the restricted portions of the Site and to your account. Accordingly, by using the Site, you agree to consider your user name and password as confidential information and to keep your user name and password strictly confidential. You also agree not to use another user’s user name and password. You will immediately notify NatureCity if you suspect or become aware of any loss or theft of your password or any unauthorized use of your user name and password. NatureCity cannot and will not be liable to any degree for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these obligations. NatureCity reserves the right to delete or change a user name or password at any time and for any reason in its sole and absolute discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall convey to you any further rights in your account or its information and any and all such content or information shall be subject to this TOU.

On-line Purchases; Specific Programs, Other Terms and Conditions

Additional notices, terms, and conditions (including, without limitation, payment terms) may apply to the purchase of certain products and/or resources, participation in certain events or programs, and/or to specific portions or features of the Site, all of which are made a part of this TOU by this reference. You agree to abide by such other notices, terms, and conditions, including, where applicable, representing that you are of sufficient legal age to acquire a product and/or use or participate in any event or program, service, or feature. If there is a conflict between this TOU and the terms posted for or applicable to a specific portion of the Site, including any areas to enable the on-line purchase of items or for any program, event or service offered on or through the Site, the latter terms shall control with respect to your use of that portion of the Site. NatureCity’s obligations, if any, with respect to its services, events, programs, and/or products are governed solely by the terms, conditions, notices, and agreements pursuant to which they are provided, and nothing on this Site should be construed to alter such terms, conditions, notices, and agreements.

NatureCity makes no representations with respect to, nor does it guarantee or endorse, the quality, non-infringement, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, reliability, or correct sequencing of such third party materials, programs, events, products, and services or any other materials, programs, events, products, and services which you may access through such third party materials, products, and services.

NATURECITY DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE USE OR THE RESULTS OF THE USE OF ANY INFORMATION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY AUDIO, VISUAL, OR VIDEO CONTENT POSTED, MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH, OR ACCESSIBLE ON THE SITE. MOREOVER, NATURECITY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE SUITABILITY, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, RELIABILITY, LEGALITY, OR ACCURACY OF THE SITE AND THE SERVICES AND MATERIALS AVAILABLE ON THE SITE FOR ANY PURPOSE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

YOU ASSUME THE SOLE RISK OF USING AND/OR RELYING ON THE SERVICES AND MATERIALS AVAILABLE ON THE SITE.

Limitation of Liability

You expressly absolve and release NatureCity from any claim of harm resulting from a cause beyond NatureCity’s reasonable control, including, but not limited to, failure of electronic or mechanical equipment or communication lines, telephone or other interconnect problems, computer viruses, unauthorized access, theft, operator errors, severe weather, earthquakes, or natural disasters, strikes, or other labor problems, wars, or governmental restrictions. MOREOVER, IN NO EVENT SHALL NATURECITY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OF THE SITE OR WITH THE DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, OR FOR THE SERVICES AND MATERIALS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE, OR OTHERWISE ARISING OUT OF UTILIZATION OF THE SITE, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF NATURECITY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME STATES/JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABLITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, TOTAL LIABILITY OF NATURECITY FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER RELATED TO USE OF THE SITE, NATURECITY’S SERVICES AND MATERIALS, AND/OR ANY PROGRAM OR EVENT MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO NATURECITY DURING THE PAST SIX MONTHS IN CONNECTION WITH THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE PARTICULAR DISPUTE.

Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless NatureCity and its affiliates and all of their employees, agents, directors, officers, proprietors, partners, representatives, shareholders, servants, attorneys, predecessors, successors, and assigns from and against any and all claims, proceedings, damages, injuries, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses), relating to or arising from any breach by you of this TOU.

Governing Law

This TOU and its performance shall be governed by the laws of the state of Florida, United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Should the arbitration provision below be found to be inapplicable or unenforceable, you consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the County of Palm Beach, state of Florida, United States of America, in all questions and controversies arising out of your use of the Website and this Agreement. To the extent allowed by applicable law, any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to your access or use of the Site must be brought within two (2) years from the date on which such claim or action arose or accrued. You also acknowledge and agree that any applicable state law implementation of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (including any available remedies or laws) shall not apply to this TOU and is hereby disclaimed. A printed version of this TOU and of any related notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this TOU to the same extent as other documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Please contact NatureCity if you wish to receive a printed copy of this TOU.

Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

Any controversy or claim arising out of or related to the use of the Site that cannot be resolved through an informal process or through negotiation within 120 days shall be settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association, and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration will be conducted in the COUNTY OF PALM BEACH but may proceed telephonically (if the claimant so chooses). BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. In arbitration, a dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, rather than by a judge or jury. Arbitration is more informal than a court trial; however, an arbitrator can award the same relief that a court can award. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and may be conducted under AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”) in effect at the time of the dispute. You may obtain copies of the AAA Rules and forms and instructions for initiating arbitration by visiting the AAA website at www.adr.org, or by calling AAA at (800) 788-7879.

You agree that disputes will only be arbitrated on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated, on a class wide, representative basis, or with any other arbitration(s) or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. If for any reason this arbitration clause is unenforceable or inapplicable, both you and we agree, to the extent permissible by law, to waive any right to pursue any claims on a class action basis. If any portion of this class action waiver is limited, void, or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate under this section will not apply and any controversy or claim must be brought exclusively in the state and federal courts in FLORIDA.

Termination of Account

These TOU will take effect at the time you place an order, register, respond to a request for information, or begin downloading, accessing, or using the Site, whichever is earliest. NatureCity reserves the right at any time and for any reason to deny you access to this Site or to any portion thereof, and NatureCity shall have the right to immediately terminate a user’s account in the event of any conduct by a user which NatureCity, in its sole discretion, considers to be unacceptable, or in the event of any breach by a user of these TOU. Termination will be effective, with or without notice. You may also terminate these TOU at any time by ceasing to use the Site, but all applicable provisions of these TOU will survive termination. The provisions concerning NatureCity’s proprietary rights, Submissions, indemnity, disclaimers of warranty and liability, admissibility of these TOU, and governing law will survive the termination of these TOU for any reason.

Waiver & Severability

Failure to insist on strict performance of any of these TOU will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by NatureCity of any right under these TOU will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. If any part of these TOU is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and the liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most clearly matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these TOU shall continue in effect.

Entire Agreement

No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and NatureCity as result of this TOU or your utilization of this Site. This TOU, NatureCity’s Privacy Policy, and any related or associated product purchase, service, or software license agreements, which are all hereby incorporated by reference as if set forth fully herein, represent the entire agreement between you and NatureCity with respect to use of the Site, and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written between you and NatureCity with respect to this Site. Be advised that NatureCity reserves the sole and absolute right to change the terms and conditions of this TOU and the terms and conditions under which this Site and its many offerings are extended to you by posting and providing notice of a revised TOU or mailing and/or e-mailing notice thereof to you. In addition, NatureCity may add, modify, or delete any aspect, program, or feature of this Site. Your continued use of this Site following any addition, modification, or deletion will be conclusively deemed acceptance of any change to the terms and conditions of this TOU. Accordingly, please review the TOU found at this location on a periodic basis.
