SUBSIDIARY AND PARENT COMPANIES OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT,
INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING

OR THIRD-PARTY CONTENT, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES MADE
AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE, EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES ARE ADVISED BEFOREHAND OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. (BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF CERTAIN CATEGORIES OF DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY
TO YOU. IN SUCH STATES, OUR LIABILITY AND THE LIABILITY OF OUR SUBSIDIARY AND
PARENT COMPANIES OR AFFILIATES IS LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY
SUCH STATES' LAWS.) YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT
LIABLE FOR ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF ANY USER. IF YOU ARE

14. Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND LIMELIFE.
YOU ALSO AGREE THAT BY VISITING AND USING THIS SITE, YOU ARE BOUND TO THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION TERMS AND YOU AND LIMELIFE ARE BOTH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. YOU AND LIMELIFE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS ACTION; CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, JAMS, you and LimeLife must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS Rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in your choice of the following locations: Los Angeles, CA or New York, NY. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. LimeLife will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. For claims totaling more than $10,000, LimeLife will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and LimeLife both waive any right to a jury trial. In the event any of the terms of this Section 14 are held to be unenforceable by a court, then the disputes or claims that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state courts of the State of California, City of Los Angeles, or the U. S. Federal Court located in the Central District of California, and you and LimeLife both waive any claim of forum non-conveniens. You and LimeLife also agree that you or LimeLife may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, provided that such suit and claims may be brought only in the courts identified in the prior sentence.
YOU MUST COMMENCE A FORMAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING PURSUANT TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE WITHIN SIX (6) MONTHS AFTER THE DATE ANY SUCH CLAIM ARISES; FAILURE TO DO SO WITHIN THAT SIX-MONTH PERIOD SHALL BE DEEMED AN IRREVOCABLE WAIVER BY YOU OF ANY RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE PURSUANT TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE (AND ANY SUCH CLAIM SHALL BE PERMANENTLY BARRED).
16. FTC Required Disclosure
LimeLife endeavors at all times to provide unbiased product reviews and editorials. However, we want you to know that LimeLife receives free products from companies or their agents which we sometimes review or discuss in LimeLife editorials, and that LimeLife sometimes displays advertising or undertakes promotional programs for those products or the companies making those products (or other of their products), for which LimeLife is compensated.
