THE PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, “WITH ALL FAULTS,” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, STATUTORY OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO (I) THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WORKMANLIKE EFFORT, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, NO LIENS, AND NO ENCUMBRANCES; (II) THE WARRANTIES AGAINST INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION OR VIOLATION OF ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OR PROPRIETARY RIGHTS OF ANY PERSON; (III) WARRANTIES ARISING THROUGH COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE IN TRADE; AND (IV) THE WARRANTIES RELATING TO THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, CORRECTNESS, OR COMPLETENESS OF DATA OR CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE ON THE PRODUCTS OR OTHERWISE BY NORVA. FURTHER, THERE IS NO WARRANTY THAT THE PRODUCTS WILL MEET YOUR NEEDS OR REQUIREMENTS OR THE NEEDS OR REQUIREMENTS OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR THE NEEDS OR REQUIREMENTS SET FORTH IN ANY DOCUMENTATION.

NORVA DOES NOT NECESSARILY ENDORSE, SUPPORT, SANCTION, ENCOURAGE OR AGREE WITH ANY NORVA CONTENT OR ANY USER CONTENT, AND WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, AND LIABILITIES IN CONNECTION WITH ANY USER CONTENT OR NORVA CONTENT. NORVA MAKES NO REPRESENTATION THAT THE PRODUCTS ARE APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION MADE AVAILABLE BY OR ON BEHALF OF NORVA SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY.

Limitation of Liability
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE, WILL NORVA, ITS AFFILIATES, OR ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE PRODUCTS BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES AND LOST PROFITS ARISING OUT OF THE TERMS OR YOUR ACCESS, USE, MISUSE, OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY NORVA CONTENT OR USER CONTENT, OR ANY SITES LINKED FROM THE PRODUCTS. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF NORVA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS, OR LINE OR SYSTEM FAILURE.
Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, NORVA’s liability in such jurisdictions shall be limited to the extent permitted by law.
Any claim against us shall be limited to the amount you paid, if any, for use of the Products.
You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend NORVA, and its affiliates and licensors, and each of their respective officers, directors, contractors, agents, employees, successors and assigns from and against any and all demands, claims, damages, liabilities, judgments, fines, interest, penalties, losses, costs, expenses and harms, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and fees of other professional advisers, arising out of or in connection with (i) your use of the Products (including, without limitation, your User Content and your use of any NORVA Content), (ii) your online conduct, (iii) your violation or breach of these Terms, (iv) your failure to comply with any applicable laws or regulations, (v) your negligence, willful misconduct, or violations of the intellectual property or other rights of any person, or (vi) any of your dealings or transactions with other persons resulting from use of the Products. You shall not settle any such claim without the prior written consent of NORVA. These obligations will survive any termination of these Terms.
Dispute Resolution/ Arbitration
This section applies to any dispute you have with NORVA, unless the dispute involves rights to your, NORVA’s, or our licensor’s intellectual property.
Location and Governing Law. These Terms are governed by, and must be construed in accordance with, the laws of the United States and the State of Virginia, as applicable, without giving effect to their principles of conflicts of law. By using the Products, you waive any claims that may arise under the laws of other states, countries, territories, or jurisdictions.
Claims Or Disputes Must Be Filed Within One Year. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute under this agreement must be filed within one year in small claims court, or in an arbitration proceeding. The one-year period begins when the claim or Notice of Dispute first could be filed. If a claim or dispute isn’t filed within one year, it’s permanently barred.
Changes to the Terms or to the Products
NORVA may change or modify the Products or the Terms at any time. Such changes, revisions, or modifications shall be effective immediately upon being posted. Any use of the Products by you after we post changes to the Terms constitutes your acceptance of those changes.
NORVA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to and use of the Products, with or without prior notice. Otherwise applicable sections of the Terms shall survive termination. NORVA also reserves the right to seek all remedies available at law and in equity for violations of these Terms. Upon termination, you must cease all use of the Products, including any of NORVA’s Content.
Integration and Severability. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between NORVA and you, superseding any prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and us. In the event any provision of these Terms is held unenforceable, it will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and will be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision.
No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provisions of the Terms or respond to a breach by you or other parties shall not in any way waive our right to enforce subsequently any terms or conditions of the Terms or to act with respect to similar breaches.
Assignment and Binding Effects. You must not assign these Terms or any rights or obligations herein without the prior written consent of NORVA and any attempted assignment in contravention of this provision is null and void and of no force or effect. NORVA has the right to assign these Terms, and any of its rights or obligations herein. These Terms are binding upon each party and its respective successors, heirs, trustees, administrators, executors and permitted assigns.
Separate Terms and Conditions. In connection with your use of the Products, you may be asked to consent to policies or terms and conditions in addition to these Terms. Please read these supplemental policies and terms carefully before making any use of such portions of the Products. Any supplemental terms will not vary or replace these Terms regarding any use of the Products, unless otherwise expressly stated.
