Reporting Copyright and Other Intellectual Property Violations
You may not use a Site for any purpose or in any manner that infringes the rights of any third party. Diva encourages you to report any content on a Site that you believe infringes your rights. Only the intellectual property rights owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner can report potentially infringing content. If you have a good faith belief that content on a Site infringes your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, please follow the procedures set forth below.
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”), Diva has a designated agent for receiving notices of copyright infringement and Diva follows the notice and take down procedures of the DMCA.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, and except where prohibited for individuals resident in the province of Quebec, you agree that under no circumstances shall the Diva Parties be liable to you or anyone else for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from: (A) the Site or the Site Content; (B) User Content; (C) your use, or inability to use, or the performance of the Site or any products purchased through the Site; (D) action taken in connection with an investigation by the Diva Parties or law enforcement authorities regarding your use of the Site; (E) action taken in connection with copyright or other intellectual property owners; (F) any errors or omissions in the Site’s technical operation; (G) any damage that results from events beyond our reasonable control, such as damages to any user’s computer, mobile device, or other equipment or technology including, without limitation, damage from any security breach or from any virus, bugs, tampering, fraud, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer line or network failure or any other technical or other malfunction, including, without limitation, damages for lost profits, loss of good will, loss of data, work stoppage, accuracy of results, or computer failure or malfunction, even if foreseeable or even if the Diva Parties have been advised of or should have known of the possibility of such damages. However, in no event will the Diva Parties total liability to you for all damages, losses or causes or actions exceed the amount paid by you, if any, to Diva for a product ordered through the Site or, in the event there has been no amounts paid, the amount of ten United States dollars ($10.00). The prior limitation on damages is not intended to limit the Diva Parties’ obligation to pay prevailing party costs or fees if recoverable pursuant to applicable law. The limitations set forth in this section will not limit or exclude the Diva Parties’ liability for personal injury or property damage caused by the Diva Parties, or for the Diva Parties’ gross negligence, fraud or intentional, willful, malicious or reckless misconduct.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

SECTION 27 – ARBITRATION AGREEMENT/GOVERNING LAW/CLASS ACTION WAIVER/DISPUTE RESOLUTION (U.S. Residents only)
Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Site (including without limitation the arbitrability of any claim or controversy) shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act. The parties waive their rights to file suit in court to assert any allegation, claim, or cause of action against the other, or to have a jury trial on any allegation, claim, or cause of action, and any right to do so (including without limitation the right to a jury trial) is hereby waived. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and Diva retain the right to seek remedies in small claims court for disputes or claims within that court’s jurisdiction, and Diva retains the right to apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for provisional or conservatory relief, including without limitation pre-arbitral attachments or injunctions, and to adjudicate disputes relating to the infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property.
Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Site or this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the procedural and substantive laws of the State of New York, without reference to choice-of-law rules. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures then in effect. The arbitration shall be presided over by a single arbitrator in New York, New York. In the event this venue will cause undue hardship to you, then, the discretion of the arbitrator, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted, with the parties participating through telephonic or video conference hearings, or at a location reasonably convenient to the parties in the state in which you reside at the time the arbitration is commenced, provided that it is within the Continental U.S. To the extent that any of the foregoing provisions are inconsistent with JAMS applicable standards then in effect, such JAMS rules shall apply.
Claims subject to this Arbitration Agreement may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis and you will not be able to participate in an arbitration as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to that claim.
All aspects of the arbitration and award shall be confidential, except to the extent disclosure is necessary in connection with an application to a court for a preliminary or permanent injunction, a petition to confirm or vacate an award, to obtain legal or other professional advice necessary for the protection of a party’s rights, or as required by law or judicial decision.
Subject to you demonstrating that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Diva will pay as much of the fees charged to you by JAMS as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost prohibitive to you.
The arbitrator will not have authority to award punitive or exemplary damages, and the parties waive any right to recover such damages. As part of the award, the prevailing party shall be awarded its costs, including without limitation arbitration fees, expert witness fees, if any, and reasonable attorney’s fees.
If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, for any reason, that specific portion shall be severed from the rest, but such severance shall not affect the enforceability of the remainder of this agreement. No waiver of any provision of this Arbitration Agreement will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving the provision, and any such waiver shall not waive or affect any other provision of this agreement.
The foregoing provisions limit certain rights, including without limitation, the right to maintain a court action, the right to a jury trial, the right to participate in any form of class or representative claim, the right to engage in discovery except as provided in the JAMS rules and these dispute resolution terms, and the right to certain remedies and forms of relief; provided that nothing herein will restrain a California resident’s right, if any, to seek public injunctive relief as permitted by law. Other rights that you would have in court also may not be available in arbitration.
