THE FOLLOWING TERMS & CONDITIONS (“TERMS & CONDITIONS”) ARE APPLICABLE TO THE USE OF THE WWW.BOOKSIO.COM WEBSITE AND OTHER AFFILIATED WEBSITES (THE “SITES”) WHICH IS(ARE) OPERATED BY HUMMINGBIRD DIGITAL MEDIA, INC.

WE WANT TO HIGHLIGHT SOME IMPORTANT TERMS, POLICIES, AND PROCEDURES IN THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS:
Mandatory Arbitration. Section 19 of these Terms & Conditions contains a mandatory arbitration provision that requires you to individually arbitrate (not in court) any disputes or claims you may have with us. The mandatory arbitration provision also waives your right to participate in a class action or multi-party arbitration. You may opt-out of the mandatory arbitration provision by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first register on the Sites. We believe the alternative dispute-resolution process of arbitration will resolve any dispute fairly and more quickly and efficiently than formal court litigation. This is explained in more detail in Section 19 below, but we put this up front (and in caps) because it’s important:

No software available at or through the Sites may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported (a) into (or to a national or resident of) any country subject to a United States or United Nation embargo or sanction; (b) to anyone on the United States Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (“SDN List”); (c) to anyone on the United States Commerce Department’s Denied Persons List or Entity List; or (d) to anyone subject to the same or similar restrictions as the foregoing.

18: Choice of Law
You agree that these Terms & Conditions constitute the agreement between you and us and shall be construed and governed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, regardless of the conflicts of law provisions of the jurisdiction where you live or in any other jurisdiction. For any disputes deemed not subject to binding individual arbitration, as provided in the section immediately below, you and we agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Superior Court of Fresno County, California, or, if federal court jurisdiction exists, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, Fresno Division. You and we agree to waive any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such courts (without affecting either party’s rights to remove a case to federal court if permissible), as well as waive any right to a jury trial. Any law or regulation providing that the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter will not apply to these Terms & Conditions. This paragraph will be interpreted as broadly as applicable law permits.
19: Binding Arbitration/Dispute Resolution; No Class Actions
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
You may opt-out of Binding Arbitration by providing written notice of your decision to Hummingbird Digital Media, Inc., 653 W Fallbrook Ave Ste. 101, Fresno, CA, 93711 within thirty (30) days of the date that you first use our Sites. You may not opt-out of the class action waiver.
If you have a dispute concerning any aspect of these Terms & Conditions or the Sites, you agree to first contact customer support on our Sites or by completing a customer support ticket. If Customer Support doesn’t resolve your dispute to your satisfaction, you agree to start a formal dispute proceeding by completing a Dispute Form. Completing a Dispute Form will elevate your dispute and we will attempt to resolve the matter to your satisfaction within thirty business (30) days of our receipt of your Dispute Form. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer during this process. If we provide you with a final written settlement offer and you don’t accept it, or we cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, you agree to submit your dispute for resolution by binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in the county where you live by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration online by following the instructions at https://apps.adr.org/webfile/. This means that you and we agree to a dispute-resolution process where we submit any dispute to a neutral arbitrator (not a judge or jury) that makes the final decision to resolve the dispute. AAA uses experienced professionals to arbitrate disputes, which helps you and us resolve any disputes fairly, but more quickly and efficiently than going to court. The arbitrator may award the same remedies to you individually as a court could, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim. The arbitrator’s decision is final, except for a limited review by courts under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act, and can be enforced like any other court order or judgment.
If we have a dispute, we will submit our dispute for resolution by arbitration before the AAA in Fresno, California.
If either party files for arbitration, it will be conducted in accordance with the then-current AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute including any claim that all or any part of the Terms & Conditions, including this provision, are unenforceable. If you proceed to arbitration, we will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). For claims you bring for Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00 USD) or less, in aggregate, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone, or based only on submissions. The arbitrator may award any form of individual or equitable relief, including injunctive relief. Any award will be final and conclusive to the parties and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you initiate arbitration and the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our final written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then we will pay you a minimum recovery of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00 USD), plus we will reimburse any reasonable expenses incurred by your attorney, if any, including fees reasonably accrued for investigating, preparing, and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Under some laws we may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration. You and your attorneys are not required to keep the results of the arbitration confidential. This provision shall not be construed to preclude any party from seeking injunctive relief to protect its rights pending an outcome in arbitration.
Class Action Waiver
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you and we agree to only bring disputes in an individual capacity and shall not: seek to bring, join, or participate in any class or representative action, collective or class-wide arbitration, or any other action where another individual or entity acts in a representative capacity (e.g., private attorney general actions); or consolidate or combine individual proceedings or permit an arbitrator to do so without the express consent of all parties to these Terms & Conditions and all other actions or arbitrations. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in such a suit. The Terms & Conditions do not constitute a waiver of any of your rights and remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining, or participating in class action lawsuits is an independent agreement.
If all or any provision of this Section 19 (Binding Arbitration) is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then you and we agree that the provision will be severed and the rest of these Terms & Conditions shall remain in effect and be construed as if any severed provision had not been included. The sole exception is that if the Class Action Waiver is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, you and we agree that it will not be severable; this entire Binding Arbitration section will be void and unenforceable and any dispute will be resolved in court subject to the venue and choice of clauses specified in these Terms & Conditions. Under no circumstances shall arbitration be conducted on a class basis without our express consent.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, VIA YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, AS WELL AS YOUR RIGHT TO BRING, JOIN, OR PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION SUIT OR MULTI-PARTY ARBITRATION BROUGHT AGAINST US, ANY PERSON OR ENTITY RELATED TO US, OR A SERVICE PROVIDER USED BY US TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES.
20: Integration and Conflicting Terms; Severability
Any provision of these Terms & Conditions that is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall be severable from these Terms & Conditions in that jurisdiction without in any way invalidating the remaining provisions of these Terms & Conditions. The unenforceability of any provision in a given jurisdiction shall not make that provision unenforceable in any other jurisdiction.
21: Changes to Terms of Service
We may modify these Terms & Conditions at any time, at our sole discretion, without specific notice to you, provided, however, that (a) any amendment or modification to the provisions applicable to dispute resolution shall not apply to any disputes incurred prior to the applicable amendment or modification; and (b) any amendment or modification to pricing and/or billing provisions shall not apply to any charges incurred prior to the applicable amendment or modification (as the Terms & Conditions in effect at the time of the subject dispute or incurred changes shall govern, as applicable). The latest version of these Terms and Conditions will be posted to the www.booksio.com Site, and you should review these Terms and Conditions prior to using the Sites.

You will not be eligible for any compensation because you cannot use any part of the Sites or because of a failure, suspension, or withdrawal of all or part of the Sites. Your continued use of the Sites following the posting of revised Terms & Conditions means that you accept and agree to the changes.
Hummingbird Digital Media, Inc. will give you any necessary notices by posting them on the www.booksio.com Site. You authorize Hummingbird Digital Media, Inc. to send notices via electronic mail as well if Hummingbird Digital Media, Inc. decides, in its sole discretion, to do so.
