Address: 1300 SE Stark Street, Suite 401
Portland, Oregon 97214
Telephone Number: (503) 292-1987

Please see 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. Also, please note that if you knowingly misrepresent that any activity or material on our Services is infringing, you may be liable to New Seasons Market for certain costs and damages.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend and hold harmless New Seasons Market and our officers, directors, agents, partners, employees, parent companies, and affiliates (together with New Seasons Market, the “New Seasons Market Parties”) from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, expenses or costs (“Claims”) arising out of or related to (a) your access to or use or misuse of our Services; (b) any User Content or Feedback you provide; (c) your violation of these Terms; and (d) your violation of any rights of another.
You agree to promptly notify the New Seasons Market Parties of any third-party Claims, cooperate with the New Seasons Market Parties in defending such Claims and pay all fees, costs and expenses associated with defending such Claims (including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees). You also agree that the New Seasons Market Parties will have control of the defense or settlement, at New Seasons Market’s sole option, of any third-party Claims.
Your use of our Services is at your sole risk. Our Services are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.

- Limitation of Liability
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the New Seasons Market Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if the New Seasons Market Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
The total liability of the New Seasons Market Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the greater of $100 or the amount paid by you to access or use our Services.
The limitations set forth in this section will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of the New Seasons Market 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.
- Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with New Seasons Market and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Opt-Out. You may opt-out of the arbitration procedures and waiver of class and representative proceedings by sending a written letter to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 calendar days of your original agreement to these Terms (including the first time you use our Services). Such letter must include, at a minimum: (i) your name; (ii) your mailing address; and (iii) your request to be excluded from the arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this Section. In the event that you opt-out consistent with these procedures, all other sections of these Terms apply.
Dispute Notice. In the event of a dispute between you and New Seasons Market, you or New Seasons Market must first send to the other party a notice of the dispute that includes a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to New Seasons Market shall be sent to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The Dispute Notice to you will be sent by certified mail to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you, or via email if we do not have any such address on file. Within 60 calendar days upon either party receiving the Dispute Notice, the parties shall engage in a good faith informal dispute resolution conference, whether by phone, email, or other channel as agreed between the parties. You and New Seasons Market will work in good faith to schedule the informal conference at a mutually convenient time. If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the informal dispute resolution conference, but you shall also fully participate in such discussions. The arbitrator may dismiss any arbitration brought without first proceeding through the informal dispute resolution conference. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the informal dispute resolution process required by this paragraph.
Arbitration Procedure. In the event the parties cannot resolve the dispute via the informal dispute resolution procedures above, and except for small claims disputes in which you or New Seasons Market seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county where you reside or disputes in which you or New Seasons Market seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and New Seasons Market each waive the right to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Multnomah County, Oregon in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules”) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are available on the JAMS website and 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 any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and New Seasons Market agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and New Seasons Market and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action, or any other type of representative proceeding.
You and New Seasons Market agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 16 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; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct 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.
You and New Seasons Market agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee, unless otherwise prohibited by law, and New Seasons Market will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by New Seasons Market, New Seasons Market will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and New Seasons Market agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Oregon and the United States sitting in Multnomah County, Oregon have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and New Seasons Market will not have the right to assert the claim.
- Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Oregon, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Oregon or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Oregon and the United States, respectively, sitting in Multnomah County, Oregon.
We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use our Services. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and New Seasons Market relating to your access to and use of our Services. The failure of New Seasons Market to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
