In no event shall Sweeppea be liable to you or any other party for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or punitive damages, however and wherever arising, that may result from your use of the Site or the Services including without limitation to losses incurred due to:

Sweeppea is not responsible for examining or evaluating the business practices, actions, omissions, or services of Customers whose Promotions are hosted on this Site, or the Participants who enter such Promotions. IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND A CUSTOMER OR PARTICIPANT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU RELEASE SWEEPPEA, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AND LEGAL REPRESENTATIVES FROM AND AGAINST CLAIMS AND DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH A DISPUTE.
If you are a California resident, by using the Site, you explicitly waive the rights granted to you under California Civil Code 1542, which states: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." Additional states may not allow this exclusion or limitation of liability, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
BY USING THE SERVICES THE CUSTOMER AGREES THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (A) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE SERVICES, WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (B) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY) NOT TO EXCEED FIVE DOLLARS ($5.00), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’ FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (C) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY CUSTOMERBE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND CUSTOMER HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES NOT TO EXCEED FIVE DOLLARS ($5.00), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (D) CUSTOMER’ REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY) AND CUSTOMERIRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
The Customer agrees to fully and finally settle all disputes pertaining to the use of the Services only through binding arbitration (in each case, a “Dispute”); provided, however, (a) Sweeppea shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in or closest to Miami, Florida and any other court with jurisdiction over the Parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury, and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award are final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
The Customer agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to the Services shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator in an arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA, and, where appropriate, available at the AAA website: www.adr.org, unless otherwise mutually agreed between the parties. If an in-person hearing is required, except as otherwise required by applicable AAA rules or applicable law, then it will take place in Chicago, Illinois. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either the Customer or Sweeppea. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the Dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Miami, Florida. Sweeppea agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of the Customer to attend the arbitration hearing). If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in Miami, Florida and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts.
In no event shall any Dispute brought by either the Customer or Sweeppea related in any way to the Services commenced more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Customer nor Sweeppea will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the Dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other Customers. You and each Party also agree that each Party may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in their respective individual capacities and in so doing YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY, to assert or participate in a class action lawsuit or class action arbitration, to assert or participate in a private attorney general lawsuit or private attorney general arbitration, and to assert or participate in any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular cause of action, then that cause of action (and only that cause of action) must remain in court and be severed from any arbitration.
