Reproduction of the Information, in whole or in part, by any means is prohibited without the express written consent of Cirak Studios. “Chris Cirak™” and “Be You™” are trademarks (“Trademarks”) of Cirak Studios.

This Site may link you to other sites on the Internet. We do not control or endorse these linked websites, nor review or approve the content that appears on the linked websites. You acknowledge and agree that we will not be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of any of the links, content, goods, or services available on or through the linked websites.
We provide the site on an “as is”, “as available” and “with all faults” basis to the fullest extent permissible by law. We, and our corporate parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and each of their employees, directors, officers, managers, members, shareholders, agents, representatives, attorneys, vendors, and contractors (collectively, the “Cirak Parties”) do not represent or warrant or endorse, expressly or implicitly, that the site or its use: (i) will be uninterrupted, (ii) will be free of defects, inaccuracies or errors, (iii) will operate in the configuration or with other hardware or software you use, (iv) that defects will be corrected, (v) that the site or the server that makes the site available will be free from any harmful components, such as viruses or other malware, or (vi) that the information on the site is accurate, complete, correct, adequate, useful, timely, reliable or otherwise. We make no warranties other than those made expressly in these terms, and hereby disclaim any and all implied warranties, including without limitation, warranties of fitness for a particular purpose and merchantability.
Under no circumstances will we be liable to you or to any third party for any consequential, incidental, indirect, punitive or special damages (including damages relating to lost profits, lost data or loss of goodwill) for any loss or damages of any kind that are directly or indirectly related to the Site, its performance, the Materials, User Content; any errors or omission in the Site; any damage to any user’s computer, hardware, software, wireless devices, or technology, even if foreseeable or even if we have been advised of or should have known of the possibility of such damages, whether in an action of contract, negligence, strict liability or tort. In no event will we or our affiliates be liable to you or anyone else for loss, damage or injury. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply. In no event will our and our affiliates’ total liability to you for all damages, loss, or causes of action, if any, exceed ten United States dollars.
If any controversy, allegation or claim arises out of or relates to the Site, the Materials, your use of the Site, and these Terms, then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. If we do not have a current address for you, then we have no obligation under this section. Your notice to us must be sent to us at the contact info listed in the “How to Contact Us” section below. For a period of sixty days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, we will engage in a dialogue with you in order to attempt to resolve the dispute though nothing will require either of us to resolve the dispute on terms with respect to which either you or we, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
All disputes arising out of or relating these Terms or your use of the Site and unresolved via dialog will be exclusively resolved under confidential binding arbitration held in Los Angeles County, California before and in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, disputes will be mediated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any mediator selected pursuant to this section holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to mediate in this section will not apply and the dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to the following paragraph.
Except to the extent that mediation is required, any action or proceeding relating to any dispute may only be instituted in federal court in Los Angeles County, California. Accordingly you and we consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will have the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in state or federal court located in Los Angeles County, California to enforce these Terms or to prevent an infringement of a third party’s rights. In the event equitable relief is sought, each party hereby irrevocably submits to the personal jurisdiction of such court.
Our failure to act with respect to a breach of the Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit our rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. We may assign our rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you. The provisions of these Terms are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner and without affecting the remaining provisions hereof, which shall continue to be in full force and effect.
These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles and specifically will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on contracts for the international sale of goods. You agree that jurisdiction and venue in any legal proceeding directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to the sites, will be in Los Angeles County, California, and you hereby consent and submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue in Los Angeles County, California.
