By accessing any areas of VIVATERRA.COM, you agree to be legally bound and to abide by the terms set forth below.
The headings used herein are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these Terms & Conditions.
VivaTerra reserves the right to update or modify these Terms & Conditions at any time without prior notice. Updates will be posted to this page and are effective upon posting. It is your obligation to check our current Terms & Conditions for any changes.
We grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to review and in some instances print content, from our Services (e.g., our website) for your personal and educational purposes as long as they do not violate any aspect of these Terms & Conditions or applicable law, including our intellectual property and other proprietary rights in and to the Services or the intellectual property rights of another party. We reserve the right to terminate or limit your access to our Services and/or the rights granted herein for any reason (or no reason) and in our sole discretion.
We reserve the right to, at any time, temporarily or permanently, modify or discontinue any features associated with the Services with or without notice and for any reason, including performing maintenance, repairs, or upgrades. We (and our licensors) remain the sole owner of all rights, title, and interest in the Services. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Services are unavailable at any time or for any period.
Portions of the Services (such as our Member registration and Address Book) may require you to create an account ("Account") and select a user ID and password. All information you provide to us when creating your Account will be accurate and true to the best of your knowledge. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any password and for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not authorized by you.

VivaTerra has invested substantial time and money in developing and maintaining goodwill in its products and Services, and VivaTerra's rights to its intellectual property is of enormous value.

XIV. Arbitration Clause and Class Action Waiver – Important – Please Review as This Affects Your Legal Rights
A. Arbitration Notice
If you and VivaTerra are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within thirty (30) days after the Notice is sent, you or the Company may initiate arbitration proceedings. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the provisions of these Terms & Conditions as a court would. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY FORFEITING YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND TO OTHERWISE PROCEED IN A LAWSUIT IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply, and the American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
The arbitration shall be held in the State of Virginia or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or we may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and us subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and us unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Virginia, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be confidential, final, and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms & Conditions to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any change to this Section (other than a change to any notice address or website link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a proceeding against us prior to the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate this Section, any such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after the version of the Terms & Conditions containing this Section is posted to the websites and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a proceeding against us prior to the effective date of termination.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER: YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
B. Claims and Disputes Must be Filed Within One (1) Year
To the extent permitted by law, and without limiting the effect of any disclaimer contained herein, any cause of action or claim you may have with respect to your use of the Services, including, without limitation, any website or mobile application or other Services-related product, services, or other content must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. This section applies to you and your heirs, successors, and assigns.
To the extent that any provision of these Terms & Conditions is deemed to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, including the binding arbitration clause and class action waiver, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms & Conditions. Such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
These Terms & Conditions are effective until terminated. We may terminate this agreement at any time without notice to you and may deny you access to our Services.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, and except to the extent arising from our gross negligence or intentional misconduct, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us, and our employees, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms & Conditions or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or rights of a third party. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you shall cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses. You shall not settle any actions or claims on our behalf without our prior written consent.
There are no third-party beneficiaries to the Terms & Conditions. We shall have the right to assign our rights or delegate any of its responsibilities under these Terms & Conditions to an affiliate or in connection with a merger, consolidation, or reorganization for the sale of substantially all of our assets.
