Section 3. Limitations of Our Liability to You.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT LIMITS ETS’S LIABILITY TO YOU, EVEN IN THE EVENT THAT YOU INCUR DAMAGES ARISING FROM USING THIS SITE.
3.1. Warranty Disclaimer. We prepared the content and other information contained on this Site as a convenience. It is not intended to constitute advice or recommendations upon which you may rely.
ALL CONTENT ON THIS SITE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” OR “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THIS SITE AND ITS CONTENTS, WHETHER IMPLIED, EXPRESS OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS, COMPLETENESS, RELIABILITY, AND ACCURACY. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THIS SITE OR ITS CONTENTS ARE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, ACCESSIBLE, SECURE, TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED, VIRUS-FREE OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT ANY SUCH PROBLEMS WILL BE CORRECTED.
3.2. Limitation of Liability. Your exclusive remedy for any dispute with us arising from this Site is for you to discontinue use of this Site. We will not be liable to you (or to any third party claiming under or through you) for any loss, injury, claim, or indirect, special, incidental, consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages (even if we knew or should have known of the possibility of such damages) arising from: your access or inability to access, use of or inability to use, this Site; or any actions or omissions of any medical practitioner; or your reliance on any content or information supplied on this Site, which reliance, if any, is solely at your own risk. We will not be liable to you for any claims for lost profits, lost data, loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, other commercial damages or losses, medical malpractice, or negligence of medical practitioners. 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 will be limited to the lesser of: the minimum extent required by law; and $1,000.

We do not control such websites and are not responsible or liable for their content or accuracy.

The foregoing indemnification obligation does not apply to liabilities, claims, demands and expenses arising from our own gross negligence or intentional misconduct.

Any product, service, or other information on this Site is subject to change without warning and ETS reserves the right to make changes without notice to any and all of this Site’s content.

Section 4. General Provisions.
4.2. Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Missouri, controlling United States Federal law, and the Federal Arbitration Act, without regard to any conflicts of law provisions. All parts of these Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by law.
4.3. Dispute Resolution.
4.3.1. Binding Arbitration. Any dispute or claim relating to your use of this Site will be resolved by binding arbitration in the City of St. Louis, Missouri, rather than in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages). The arbitrator must also follow these Terms as a court would. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. You agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action.
4.3.2. Intellectual Property Disputes. If either party desires to bring a suit against the other for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, the parties agree that such claims may be brought in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. The parties irrevocably submit to the nonexclusive personal jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.
4.4. Severability; Headings. If either party cannot enforce a portion of these Terms as written, then that portion will be replaced with terms that most closely match the intent of the portion that cannot be enforced to the extent permitted by law. The invalidity of part of these Terms will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. The section headings are for convenience and do not have any legal force or effect.
4.5. No Waiver. No waiver of any provisions of these Terms or a breach will be valid or enforceable unless in writing. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for in these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of any other rights under these Terms.
4.6. Survival. These Terms will survive the termination or deactivation of your access to this Site.
