Dispute Resolution, Governing Law and Jurisdiction
Dispute Resolution Generally: BY USING THIS WEBSITE, YOU AGREE THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (1) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE WEBSITE WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (2) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS' FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (3) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL YOU BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR – AND YOU HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK – PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSES), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (4) YOUR REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM-FOR-MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY), AND YOU IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Arbitration: Any controversy or claim arising out of your use of the Website and/or any purchase made through the Website shall be settled by binding arbitration in a location determined by the arbitrator as set forth herein (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for claimant), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by the parties, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS ("JAMS Rules and Procedures") then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply New York law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, NFP will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor NFP shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within 60 days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties. THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND/OR USE THIS APP IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Governing Law & Jurisdiction: ALL DISPUTES IN CONNECTION WITH WEBSITE AND USE OF THE WEBSITE, SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE CONFLICT OF LAWS RULES THEREOF, AND ANY MATTERS OR PROCEEDINGS WHICH ARE NOT SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH ABOVE SHALL TAKE PLACE IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK IN THE STATE OR FEDERAL COURTS IN NEW YORK COUNTY, NEW YORK AND YOU CONSENT TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS.
The delay or omission by either party to enforce or exercise any terms or right pursuant to this Agreement will not impair any such term or right nor be construed to be a waiver thereof, and will in no way affect the other party’s right later to enforce it. Any waiver by either party of any covenants, conditions or agreements to be performed by the other party will not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach thereof or any covenant, conditions or agreement herein contained.
If any part of these Terms and Conditions is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining provisions. Any information related to your use of this Website for illegal purposes will be provided to law enforcement authorities. These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between the parties relating to the use of this Website and supersedes and replaces any prior agreement and communication between the parties relating thereto.

Web beacons may be used, for example, to count the number of visitors to the Site, to monitor how users navigate the Site or how long they remain on the Site, and to count content views. Some technologies will notify you of the presence of Web beacons, but browsers typically do not notify you of them.
- Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site.

- Location-identifying technologies. GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering and other location-aware technologies locate (sometimes precisely) you, or make assumptions about your location, for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting content based on your location. If you have enabled GPS or use other location-based features on the Site, your device location may be tracked.

- Device Recognition Technologies. Technologies, including application of statistical probability of data sets, as well as linking a common unique identifier to different device use (e.g., Facebook ID), which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices is the same user or household).
- In-App Tracking Methods. There are a variety of Tracking Technologies that may be included in mobile applications, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. Some use device identifiers, or other identifiers such as “Ad IDs,” to associate app user activity to a particular app and to track user activity across apps and/or devices.
Some information about your use of the Site and certain third-party services may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Site and certain other websites or online services.

The Site is not intended for, nor targeted to, children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that an individual submitting information is under 13, we will delete the information in accordance with applicable law.
Social Features and Advertising
You may find additional information on the products and services we distribute through third-party services, such as our social media websites (“Social Features”), including but not limited to Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter. Certain functionalities on the Site permit interactions that you initiate between the Site and the Social Feature. Social Features enable you to send content between the Site and a third-party service. These websites have their own privacy policies and data handling practices, which are different from ours.
Please take the time to review these policies before disclosing or posting information on or through these Social Features or any button that links to these Social Features. Please keep in mind that any information you share on Social Features, including on social media websites, interactive forums, message boards or chat rooms, may be publicly displayed by the third-party service you use. Also, both NFP and the third-party service providers may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Site and the third-party service. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose or share your personal information.
We may engage and work with service providers and other third parties to serve advertisements on third-party services. These ads may be tailored to your interest based on your use of the Site and elsewhere on the Internet, sometimes referred to as “interest-based advertising,” which may include sending you an ad on a third-party service after you have left the Site (i.e., “retargeting”).
Information You Disclose Publicly or To Others
Additionally, the Site may offer you the option to send a communication to a contact. If so, we rely on you to only send such communication to people that have given you permission to do so. The recipient’s personal information you provide (e.g., name, e-mail address) will be used to facilitate communication. Your contact information and message may be included in the communication.
Links to Third-Party Websites
The Site may contain links to other websites or services. NFP does not control the content or privacy policies of such third-party websites or services. Third-party sites may use their own Tracking Technologies to independently collect information about you or solicit personal information from you. NFP accepts no responsibility or liability for privacy or other issues related to the collection or use of your information by such other websites, services or third parties.
We urge you to be aware when you leave our Site, and to read the privacy statements of each website on which you land after you click on a link or social networking button located on our Site.
We take reasonable technical, organizational and administrative measures to protect personal information collected through this Site against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage. However, because transmission via the Internet and online digital storage is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any information we may have collected from or about you through the Site.
We will not collect any information such as your Social Security number or a bank or credit card account number, through the Site. Third-parties are used to process any bank card or credit card transactions. If you need to send us confidential information and are concerned about the security of the Site, then you should consider sending it via another secure connection or method.
If you believe that your interaction with the Site is no longer secure, please immediately notify us of the problem in accordance with the “How to Contact Us” section below.
Choice Regarding Emails or Marketing
If you no longer want to receive emails or marketing-related materials from us, you may opt out of receiving these materials by following the unsubscribe instructions in such messages or by contacting us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We will comply with your request as soon as practicable. Please note that even if you opt out of receiving email alerts from us, we may continue to send you other email communications.
Each user has the right to review, change or suppress personal information that can reasonably be linked to, and that we have collected from that user. You may exercise this right by contacting us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section. For your protection, we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will try to implement your request as soon as reasonably practicable.
However, please note that we reserve the right to refuse to act on a request that is manifestly unfounded or excessive (e.g., because it is repetitive) and/or to charge a fee that takes into account the administrative costs for providing the information or the communication or taking the action requested. If you have a question, comment or request, please contact us as explained in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
Opt Out of Tracking Technologies
Regular cookies generally may be disabled or removed using tools available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some instances blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Browsers offer different functionalities and options so you may need to set them up separately. Most browsers contain information on how to control or delete cookies. These settings will typically be found in the “Options” or “Preferences” menu of a browser. You may wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/. Also, tools from commercial browsers may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies (also known as locally shared objects), HTML5 cookies or other Tracking Technologies. Please be aware that if you disable or remove these technologies, some parts of the Site may not work and that when you revisit the Site, your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
Your browser settings may allow you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites. The “Do Not Track” feature of these browsers sends a signal that informs operators of services online that the user does not want certain information about their online activities to be collected over time and across websites or online services. The Internet industry has not yet agreed on a definition of what “Do Not Track” means, how compliance with “Do Not Track” would be measured or evaluated, or a common approach to responding to a “Do Not Track” signal. Consequently, due to the lack of guidance, like many websites, we have not yet developed features that would recognize or respond to browser-initiated “Do Not Track” signals.
