Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.
6.6 Limitation of Liability and Indemnity
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will Big Adventures be liable to any party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages of any type whatsoever related to or arising from the Sites and Service, any use of the Sites and Service, or of any Site or resource linked to, referenced, or accessed through the Sites and Service, or for the use or downloading of, or access to, any materials, information, products, or services, including, without limitation, any lost profits, business interruption, lost savings or loss of programs or other data, even if Big Adventures is expressly advised of the possibility of such damages. You assume all risk and waive any and all liability, damages, claims or costs against Big Adventures, and its agents, owners, employees, and representatives related to your use of the Sites and Service and accessing and using any and all related content. This exclusion and waiver of liability applies to all causes of action, whether based on contract, warranty, tort, or any other legal theories.
In consideration for accessing the Service, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Big Adventures, including its owners, employees, and agents for any and all third-party claims that are created by your acts and/or omissions, whether willful or not, based upon this Website and Service.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release Big Adventures and the other Big Adventures Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. If you are a consumer who resides in California, you hereby waive your rights under California Civil Code § 1542, which provides: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” The total liability of Big Adventures and the other Big Adventures Parties for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Service, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the greater of $100 or the amount paid by you to us in the previous twelve (12) months.
The limitations set forth in this Section will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of Big Adventures or the other Big Adventures Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Big Adventures and our respective officers, directors, agents, partners, members, sister companies, employees, independent contractors, service providers and consultants from and against any claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (collectively, “Claims”) arising out of or related to (a) your access to and use or misuse of the Service; (b) any User Content you create, post, upload, use, distribute, store or otherwise transmit on or through the Sites; (c) any Feedback you provide; (d) your violation of these Terms; and (e) your violation, misappropriation or infringement of any rights of any third party. You will promptly notify the Big Adventures of any third-party Claims, cooperate with the Big Adventures in defending the Claims and pay all fees, costs and expenses associated with defending Claims (including but not limited to attorneys' fees). Big Adventures will have control of the defense or settlement of any third-party Claims.
6.7 Applicable Law, Disputes, Venue, and Arbitration
6.7.1 Choice of Law and Venue. By visiting this website, you agree that the laws of the North Carolina, United States, without regard to principles of conflict laws, will govern these terms of service, or any dispute of any sort that might come between Big Adventures and you, or its business partners and associates. Any and all claims must be brought in Buncombe County, North Carolina, according to terms, venue, and structure outlined herein, unless other jurisdicational right(s) exist for consumer
6.7.2 No Representative Actions. You and Big Adventures agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Service is personal to you and Big Adventures and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
6.7.3 Except for small claims disputes in which you or Big Adventures seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Big Adventures seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property, you and Big Adventures waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any other dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Service, including claims related to privacy and data security (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in court. Instead, for any Dispute that you have with Big Adventures you agree to first contact Big Adventures and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Big Adventures by email at email@example.com or by certified mail addressed to 210 Old Airport Rd., Fletcher, NC 28732. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Big Adventures cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after a Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Buncombe County, North Carolina unless you are a consumer, in which case you may elect to hold the arbitration in your county of residence. For purposes of this Section, a “consumer” means a person using the Service for personal, family or household purposes. You and Big Adventures agree that Disputes will be held in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
6.7.4 You and Big Adventures agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 14 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
6.7.5 The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute. The arbitrator, Big Adventures, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s). The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
6.7.6 Any Dispute must be filed within one year after the relevant claim arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred, which means that you and Big Adventures will not have the right to assert the claim.
6.7.7 If any portion of this Section is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision will be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision will have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, those claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section will be enforceable.
6.8 Notice to European Union users
Big Adventures’s operations are located in United States. If you provide information to us, the information will be transferred out of the European Union (EU) to the United States. By providing personal information to us, you are consenting to its storage and use as described herein.
If any term, clause, or provision of these Terms will be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that term, clause, or provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining terms, clauses, or provisions.
6.10.1 The failure of Big Adventures to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.
6.10.2 The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Use of the word “including” will be interpreted to mean “including without limitation.”
6.10.3 You consent to communications between us being conducted electronically.
6.10.4 These Terms are for the benefit of, and will be enforceable by, the parties only. These Terms are not intended to confer any right or benefit on any third party or to create any obligations or liability of a party to any third party.
6.10.5 Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, California consumers are entitled to the following specific consumer rights notice: The Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may be contacted in writing at 1625 N. Market Blvd., Suite N-112, Sacramento, California 95834, or by telephone at 1 (800) 952-5210.

All prices are shown in U.S. dollars except where otherwise noted; taxes, shipping and handling charges are additional. All items are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue Products without notice, even if you have already placed your order. All prices are subject to change without notice and taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the billing screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible and to eliminate errors on the Service; however, we do not warrant that any Product, description, photograph, pricing or other information is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. In the event of an error—whether on the Sites, in an order confirmation, in processing an order, in delivering a Product or otherwise—we reserve the right to correct any error and to revise your order accordingly if necessary (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. Your sole remedy in the event of a pricing error is to cancel your order or return the item and obtain a refund.
The Site may contain information regarding the availability of Products. In rare cases, a Product may be in stock when you place the order and sold out by the time we attempt to process the order. Should this happen, we will notify you by email and cancel the item from your order. We also may offer some Products for sale before they have been manufactured or arrive at our warehouse. When you preorder these Products, we will ship them out once they are available. In rare cases, these items may not become available for shipping.

When you make a purchase through the Sites, you will provide your payment details and any additional information required to complete your order directly to our third-party payment processor. You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by our payment processor and your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorize payment for any reason. For your protection, our payment processor uses various fraud prevention protocols and industry standard verification systems to reduce fraud and you authorize it to verify and authenticate your payment information. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this. In some jurisdictions, our payment processor may use third parties under strict confidentiality and data protection requirements for the purposes of payment processing services. You consent to all such actions and implications by using the Service and making a purchase and agree Big Adventures has no liability to You for actions or effects of third parties.
5.2 Unless otherwise specified, prices quoted are exclusive of: (a) the costs of shipping or carriage to the agreed place of delivery; and (b) value added tax and any other tax or duty which (where applicable) must be added to the price payable.

5.3 All orders of Products must be for Your personal use only. You will not resell or distribute Products for any commercial purposes. All orders are subject to our acceptance or rejection based on Product availability, noncompliance with this Agreement or any other reason as determined in our sole discretion.
