FURTHER, ANY INFORMATION RECEIVED VIA THE WEBSITE SHOULD NOT BE RELIED UPON FOR PERSONAL, MEDICAL, LEGAL OR FINANCIAL DECISIONS AND YOU SHOULD CONSULT AN APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONAL FOR SPECIFIC ADVICE TAILORED TO YOUR SITUATION. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF SOME OF THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

In the event that you use the Website, or any portion thereof, in any manner not authorized by us, or if you otherwise infringe any intellectual property rights or any other rights relating to other users, you agree to indemnify and hold the Company, its subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors and representatives, harmless against any losses, expenses, costs or damages, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by them as a result of unauthorized use of the Website and/or your breach or alleged breach of these Terms.

The “Arbitration; Governing Law” section below shall continue to apply to all such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.
ARBITRATION; GOVERNING LAW
You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising hereunder or relating in any way to these Terms, shall be settled by binding arbitration in Fulton County, Georgia, in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The arbitrator shall issue a written decision specifying the basis for the award made. The party filing a claim or counterclaim in the arbitration proceeding shall pay the deposit(s) determined by JAMS with respect to such claim or counterclaim. All other costs associated with the arbitration and imposed by JAMS shall be paid as determined by the arbitrator(s) and, in absence of such determination, equally by each party to the arbitration. In addition, unless the arbitrator awards payment of reasonable attorney and other fees to a party, each party to the arbitration shall be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees and other professional fees incurred in connection with the arbitration. Determinations of the arbitrator will be final and binding upon the parties to the arbitration, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for a judicial acceptance of the award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law of the State of Georgia, without giving effect to its conflict of laws rules. The parties hereto hereby waive their respective right to trial by jury of any cause of action, claim, counterclaim or cross-complaint in any action, proceeding and/or hearing brought by any party against another on any matter whatsoever relating to, resulting from, arising out of, or in any way connected with these Terms, or any amendment or breach hereof, including, without limitation, any claim or injury or damage, or the enforcement of any remedy under any law, statute, or regulation, emergency or otherwise, now or hereafter in effect.
You agree that the following will not be subject to arbitration: (a) any dispute over the validity of any party’s intellectual property rights, and (b) any dispute related to or arising from allegations associated with unauthorized or prohibited use of the Website.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, these Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Georgia, U.S.A. and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in Fulton County, Georgia, U.S.A. in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Website. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that the Company shall be permitted to apply for injunctive remedies (or equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

Surterra does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Surterra may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your Personal Information is not transferred to the third party.

All such third parties are prohibited from using your Personal Information except to provide these services to Surterra, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information. Surterra does not use or disclose sensitive Personal Information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
DO NOT UPLOAD OR SUBMIT ANY INFORMATION TO OR INTO THE WEBSITE THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SHARED OR USED IN THE MANNER DESCRIBED HEREIN.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Surterra reserves the right to disclose your Personal Information, without notice, if required to do so by law or upon the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Surterra or the Website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Surterra and our affiliates; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security or; (d) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Website, or the public.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Surterra uses commercially reasonable efforts to secure your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure and to store the Personal Information on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THIRD PARTY CIRCUMVENTION OF ANY PRIVACY OR SECURITY MEASURES OF SURTERRA.
COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Surterra. This information can include your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, referring web site addresses, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser (much of this information is collected through web beacons). This information is used by Surterra for the operation of the Website, to maintain quality of our products and services, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Website. Surterra keeps track of the web sites and pages our customers visit within Surterra, in order to determine what Surterra products and services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Surterra to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The Website also uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Website pages, a cookie helps Surterra to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your Personal Information. When you return to the same Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Website features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies or to disable collection of information received from web beacons by modifying your browser settings. If you choose to decline cookies and disable web beacons, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Website.

If you believe that we might have any Personal Information from a child under age 18, please contact us by email at [email protected]
PHISHING OR FALSE EMAILS
If you receive an unsolicited email that appears to be from us or one of our customers or users that requests Personal Information, or that asks you to verify or confirm Personal Information by clicking on a link, that email was likely to have been sent by someone trying to unlawfully obtain your information, sometimes referred to as a “phisher” or “spoofer.” We do not ask for this type of information via email. Do not provide the information or click on the link. Please contact us at [email protected] if you receive an email like this.
