The following section only applies to you if you are resident in the USA or elsewhere in the world (but does not apply if you are a consumer resident in the European Union):
19.1 Limitation of Liability.

19.2 Reference Sites.
THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ALSO APPLY WITH RESPECT TO DAMAGES INCURRED BY YOU BY REASON OF ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD OR PROVIDED ON ANY REFERENCE SITES OR OTHERWISE BY THIRD PARTIES OTHER THAN LIVERAISE AND RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED ON THE LIVERAISE SERVICE OR RECEIVED THROUGH ANY REFERENCE SITES.
19.3 Basis of the Bargain.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT LIVERAISE HAS OFFERED THE LIVERAISE SERVICES, BROADCASTER CONTENT, MATERIALS AND OTHER CONTENT AND INFORMATION, SET ITS PRICES, AND ENTERED INTO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE IN RELIANCE UPON THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN, THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND LIVERAISE, AND THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND LIVERAISE. LIVERAISE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE LIVERAISE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY REASONABLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
19.4 Users in the European Union.
The following section only applies to you if you are a consumer resident in the European Union: Neither LiveRaise and its affiliates and partners in all cases, nor you (if you are an individual customer), will be responsible for: (i) losses that were not caused by any breach on their or your part; (ii) any indirect or consequential losses (including loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure); or (iii) any indirect or consequential losses that were not foreseeable by both you and us when the Terms of Service were agreed or updated as applicable. If you are a Subscribing Organisation (as defined in section 1 of these Terms of Service) then you are not granted any rights under this section.
20. Applicable Law and Venue
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH LIVERAISE AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM LIVERAISE.
You and LiveRaise agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from these Terms of Service or your use of the LiveRaise Service, except that you and LiveRaise are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party solely seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. You and LiveRaise agree that you will notify each other in writing of any dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises. Notice to LiveRaise shall be sent to LiveRaise, LLC, Attn: Legal Department, [ADDRESS]. You and LiveRaise further agree: to attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration; that any arbitration will occur in Los Angeles County, California; that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; and that the state or federal courts in Los Angeles County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed below, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. Any dispute between the parties will be governed by this Agreement and the laws of the State of California and applicable United States law, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and LiveRaise will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding.
LiveRaise may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to LiveRaise's terms and conditions, by email, regular mail or postings on the LiveRaise Services. If given by email, notice will be deemed given twenty-four (24) hours after email is sent, unless LiveRaise is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through the LiveRaise Service. In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing. Notice posted on the LiveRaise Service is deemed given ten (10) days following the initial posting or sooner in the event that we or you have received reasonably clear acknowledgment of such notice form you.
The failure of either you or us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms of Service will be effective only if in writing and signed by the relevant party.
If any provision of these Terms of Service or any guidelines is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then for both you and us that provision will be limited or eliminated from these Terms of Service to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms of Service and related Guidelines, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by LiveRaise without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of this Terms of Service shall be void.
Upon termination of these Terms of Service, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Sections 7, 8, 11(b)(ii), 11(c), 11(d), 12, 1520.
The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms of Service, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions of it.
21.7 Entire Agreement.
If you are a consumer resident in the European Union and you disagree with the above, we encourage you contact us as soon as possible after you start using the LiveRaise Service at legal@LiveRaise.com since otherwise they will be binding on you after a reasonable time period (usually 30 days unless there are exceptional circumstances). The following section only applies to you if you are resident in the USA or elsewhere in the world (but does not apply if you are a consumer resident in the European Union): YOU AND LIVERAISE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE LIVERAISE SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
The LiveRaise Service is offered by LiveRaise, LLC, located at: [ADDRESS] and email: help@LiveRaise.com. If you are a California resident, you may have this same information emailed to you by sending a letter to the foregoing address with your email address and a request for this information.
