LIABILITY

Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE CHILDFUND INTERNATIONAL GROUP (AS DEFINED IN SECTION TITLED “INDEMNITIES”) SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO REGISTRANT FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RESULTING FROM REGISTRANT’S USE OF THE RESTRICTED SITES, OR BASED UPON ANY BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, BREACH OF CONTRACT (INCLUDING THESE RESTRICTED SITES TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND ANY ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS, GUIDELINES OR POLICIES ISSUED BY CHILDFUND INTERNATIONAL, INCLUDING THOSE POSTED ON THE CHILDFUND INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE (WWW.CHILDFUND.ORG)), NEGLIGENCE, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY (COLLECTIVELY, THE “EXCLUDED DAMAGES”). THE EXCLUDED DAMAGES ALSO INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF SAVINGS AND REVENUE; LOSS OF PROFIT; LOSS OF USE; LOSS OF DATA AND THE CLAIMS OF THIRD PARTIES. IF CHILDFUND INTERNATIONAL GROUP CANNOT LAWFULLY DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ANY OF THE FOREGOING DAMAGES, THE CHILDFUND INTERNATIONAL GROUP’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY TO REGISTRANT IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT OF THE DONATION SUBMITTED BY REGISTRANT THAT GAVE RISE TO THE UNDERLYING CLAIM, OR, IF NO DONATION WAS PROVIDED, FIFTY DOLLARS (US $50.00). THESE LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF ANY OTHER REMEDY AVAILABLE TO REGISTRANT FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO REGISTRANT.

Remedies

At its option, any member of the ChildFund International Group may seek all remedies available to it under law and in equity, including injunctive relief in the form of specific performance to enforce these Restricted Sites Terms and Conditions, including any additional instructions, guidelines or policies issued by ChildFund International, including those posted on the ChildFund International website (www.childfund.org), and/or actions for damages.

Claims

No action arising out of, in connection with, or relating to these Restricted Sites Terms and Conditions or the subject of these Restricted Sites Terms and Conditions shall be brought by Registrant more than one (1) year after the accrual of the cause of action.  This period shall not be extended for any reason, except by the written consent of both parties.  All statutes or provision of law which would toll or otherwise affect the running of the period of limitations are hereby waived, and no such statute or provision of law shall operate to extend the period limited in this paragraph.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Disputes

If a dispute arises under these Restricted Sites Terms and Conditions between Registrant and any member of the ChildFund International Group, such dispute shall be resolved (i) in Richmond, Virginia, USA; and (ii) at the filing party’s election, in either a small claims court or by final and binding arbitration administered by the National Arbitration Forum or the American Arbitration Association, under their rules for consumer arbitrations.
