Third, the right to ownership.
All text, graphics, pictures, drawings, designs, icons, photographs, videos, software concepts, documentation, and other items on, in, or accessible through the Site (“Site Contents”) are either owned by us or used under license from a third party. We or our licensors own all rights to the content on this site, including those granted by copyright, trademark, patent, and other laws. Any proprietary or copyright notices on the Site Contents may not be removed or altered in any way. We, or our affiliates, licensors, or suppliers, own all legal rights to any names, trademarks, service marks, certification marks, symbols, slogans, or logos used or displayed on the Site. Any unauthorized or improper use of these trademarks may be a violation of federal and state trademark law. Except for the limited right to use the Site Contents in accordance with these Terms to shop or place orders with us, we reserve all rights, title, and interest in and to the Site Contents not expressly granted to you herein. For example, “Stonekala*” is a service mark owned by “Stonekala, Inc.”
Format for Reporting and Rebutting Allegations of Copyright Violation:
We will respond to reports of suspected copyright infringement, process and investigate such notices expeditiously, and take appropriate remedies under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2). Third parties must notify our DMCA agent (“Designated Agent”) of any alleged infringement of their rights under the DMCA. Please contact the Designated Agent if you find content on the Site that you believe violates your copyright under U.S. copyright law.
In order to comply with the DMCA’s notification requirements for an allegation of copyright infringement by a third party, the complaining party must provide the following information in writing to the Designated Agent: a) the identification of the exclusive right claimed to have been infringed; b) the identification of the copyrighted work or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; c) the identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed; and d) the physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner (5) a statement that the complaining party believes, in good faith, that neither the copyright owner, nor its agent, nor the law, has authorized the use of the material in the manner complained of; (6) a statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
We will remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice as being infringing or as being the subject of infringing activity, and we will take reasonable steps to notify the alleged infringer that the material was removed or that access was disabled, if we receive a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement. An alleged infringer may submit a counter-notice to have the removed content reinstated on the Site in accordance with the DMCA. In that case, we’ll send you a notice, and if you want us to take down the content, you’ll have to file a lawsuit for alleged copyright infringement in a federal court in the United States.
If a claimant makes a false statement to us about copyright infringement, and we remove or disable access to the content or activity in question or reinstate it after it has been removed or disabled due to our reliance on the false statement, the claimant may be held liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer who is injured by the false statement.

Liability Waivers and Releases; 15. Exceptions to Limits and Exclusions.
Please be aware that the limitations and exclusions of responsibility set forth in Sections 12, 13, and 14 above may not apply to you because they may violate local law (such as New Jersey’s law restricting the scope of implied warranties for consumer items and services). As a result, you may find that some of the disclaimers above do not apply to your situation. We advise you to speak with an attorney in your area for advice on these matters. The limits and exclusions of liability set forth in these Terms shall apply to the maximum extent permissible by applicable law.

Laws that apply 18.
The laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of law provisions, will govern and control the interpretation of these Terms. You hereby irrevocably waive your right to trial by jury and any jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in New York by accessing, viewing, or using the services, works, content, or materials on the Site, subject to Section 21 of this Agreement. The validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms shall not be affected by the unlawfulness, invalidity, or unenforceability of any part of these Terms. Users accessing the Site from outside the United States are responsible for following all local, state, and federal laws in their respective regions.
The Agreement’s final section is Section 19.
All prior written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof are thus expressly superseded and replaced by these Terms. We will not treat a waiver of one breach or default herein as a precedent to or waiver of any other breach or default. All section and paragraph headings contained in these Terms are for reference purposes only and shall not be used in construing or interpreting these Terms. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you understand and agree that the terms and conditions of your purchase of any goods or service are in addition to, and not in substitution for, these Terms and the information given in this Site.

Forces Outside of One’s Command.
Nonperformance or delay in performance due to acts beyond our reasonable control, such as acts or omissions of third parties, lack of supplies, failure of equipment, war, strikes, lock-outs, fire, flood, or any other Act of God, any law, regulation, ordinance, or other act or order of any court, government, or governmental agency, or delays, unavailability, errors, or other failures of the Internet or other data networks, shall not entitle you to any remedy or compensation.
21. Consent to Arbitrate and Waiver of Certain Rights.
If you can show that the expenses of arbitration will be excessive in comparison to the costs of litigation, the Stonekala will pay as much of the arbitration’s administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees as the arbitrator thinks necessary to keep the cost of arbitration below the cost of litigation. The arbitrator’s final award may include a determination of how the parties should pay for the arbitration and the arbitrator’s salary.
With regard to any Claim, neither you nor Stonekala may serve as a class representative or private attorney general, nor may you join a class as a member. There will be no class or representative arbitration of claims. Your and/or Stonekala’ individual Claims are the only ones the arbitrator can rule on. No other similarly situated parties or individuals may have their claims combined or joined by the arbitrator.
The provisions of this Section shall be deemed null and void and severed if any provision of this Section is held to be unlawful or unenforceable, but the remaining provisions of this Section shall remain in full force and effect. No term of this Section of the Conditions of Use will be waived unless the waiver is recorded in writing and signed by the party making the waiver. Any provision of these Conditions of Use that is waived in this manner shall remain in full force and effect. When your account with Stonekala is closed, this provision of the Conditions of Use will remain in effect.
This section limits your ability to file a lawsuit in court, have a jury decide your case, join a class action or other representative suit, engage in discovery outside of the scope of the AAA’s rules, and get certain remedies and forms of relief. You or Stonekala may not be able to exercise other rights afforded by the court system in arbitration.

Users from other locations access the Site at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with local laws. No delay or omission on our part in exercising, or a waiver by us of, any right herein shall operate as a waiver of any other rights hereunder. These Terms’ headings are included for convenience only and will not be considered in interpreting these Terms. These Terms and no provision hereof shall be interpreted to benefit any person or entity that is not a party to this agreement. In this context, the phrase “without limitation” shall be interpreted to follow the words “including,” “including,” and any other similar grammatical modifications.
