2. Modification of Terms, or Services
The Terms may be modified at any time within our sole discretion. You should check this Agreement periodically for changes. Continued use of CURA services after we post any changes to this Agreement, or otherwise notify you of changes indicates your agreement to be bound by the modified Terms, whether or not you have reviewed them. If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement, then you should not, and cannot utilize the Services, and you should arrange to cancel your subscription with us. CURA Services may develop over time, and we may change, or discontinue all or part of the CURA Services, at any time and without notice, at our discretion.

Nothing in our Services should be construed as such advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The information provided should not be interpreted as a substitute for physician consultation, evaluation, or treatment.

Customers requiring secure storage of “protected health information” under HIPAA are expressly prohibited from using this Service for such purposes.

CURA Services are intended for use only by individuals healthy enough to make changes to their diets, and lifestyles, and are not intended for use by minors, or individuals with any type of health conditions which make suggested changes to diet, or lifestyle unsafe, or unsuitable. Your use of CURA is your representation that you consulted a medical expert before starting nutritional, or other lifestyle changes. We reserve the right to deny you access to CURA Services for any reason, or no reason, including if we determine, at our sole discretion, that you have certain medical conditions not conducive to CURA Services.

16. Governing Law
These Terms, and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Wyoming without regard to conflict of laws principles. If, despite the Dispute Resolution terms (below) which generally required binding arbitration, a court of competent jurisdiction is involved, you hereby consent, and submit to the personal jurisdiction of the Courts of Wyoming.
If the arbitrator finds that any provision of these Terms is invalid, or unenforceable, you agree that the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force, and effect.
18. Dispute Resolution
A. Agreement to Arbitrate
You, and we agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of, or relating to these Terms, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, or the use of the Services, or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court; and (ii) to seek injunctive,or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual, or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. This “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
B. Arbitration Process
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written, signed, and certified Demand for Arbitration outlining the details of the complaint, and redress sought. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge, or an attorney licensed to practice law, and will be selected by the parties from the JAMS’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then JAMS will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the applicable Rules.
§ The arbitration will be administered by JAMS, 410 17th Street, Suite 2440, Denver, CO 80202, P 303-534-1254, F 303-534-1255; firstname.lastname@example.org
C. Arbitration Location, and Procedure
The arbitration will be conducted virtually with JAMS. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you, and we submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing, or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the JAMS applicable Rules. Subject to JAMS’ rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
D. Arbitrator’s Decision
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified by JAMS. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings, and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types, and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. Each party hereby waives all rights we may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees, and expenses even if a party prevails in arbitration.
As a condition to having a cognizable claim, it will be Your responsibility to pay any initial JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees required to arbitrate your dispute. If you succeed in your claim, these fees if any will be reimbursed by CURA.
F. Class Action Waiver
You agree that any proceedings to resolve any dispute will be conducted solely on an individual basis, and that you will not seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, a representative action, a collective action, a private attorney-general action, or in any proceeding in which you propose to act in a representative capacity. You agree that no arbitration proceeding will be joined, consolidated, or combined with another arbitration without the prior written consent of CURA, and all parties to any such arbitration.
G. Timing of Claim
You agree that regardless of any applicable law to the contrary, you cannot file a claim, or arising out of or related to CURA Services, or these Terms more than one (1) year after the date such claim arose.
We may terminate your access to, and use of the Services, at our sole discretion, at any time, and without prior notice to you. Further, you agree that we shall not be liable to you, or any third-party for any termination, or cancellation of our Services. You understand that your online right with respect to your dissatisfaction with any modification, or discontinuation of service is: You may cancel your Account at any time by sending an email to us at CUSTOMERSERVICE@CURAWL.COM. Upon any termination, discontinuation, or cancellation of Services, or your Account, all provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive shall survive, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty, and professional/medical services disclaimers, assumption of risk, and indemnity, limitations of liability, and dispute resolution provisions.
20. Miscellaneous Terms
These Terms constitute the entire, and exclusive understanding, and agreement between us, and you regarding the Services, and Content, and these Terms supersede, and replace any and all prior oral, or written understandings, or agreements between us, and you regarding the Services, and Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid, or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force, and effect.
You may not assign, or transfer these Terms, by operation of law, or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign, or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null, and of no effect. We may freely assign, or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind, and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Any notices, or other communications provided by us under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: by us (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Our failure to enforce any right, or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. The waiver of any such right, or provision will be effective only if in writing, and signed by a duly authorized representative of us. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
We welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to CURA Services. You can submit feedback by emailing us at CUSTOMERSERVICE@CURAWL.COM.
