Disclaimers, Release and Waiver CCDA is providing our Services as a benefit and service in advancement of CCDA’s non-profit, tax-exempt purposes. USERS OF THIS SITE DO SO AT THEIR OWN RISK. CCDA PROVIDES THIS SITE “AS IS” WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THIS SITE WILL BE SAFE OR SECURE. CCDA AND CCDA’S AFFILIATE BRANCHES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS, CONTENT, INFORMATION, OR DATA OF THIRD PARTIES. YOU RELEASE CCDA AND THE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, VOLUNTEERS, AND AGENTS OF CCDA AND ITS AFFILIATE BRANCHES, FROM ANY CLAIMS AND DAMAGES, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE AGAINST ANY SUCH THIRD PARTIES.
IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CCDA AND ITS AFFILIATE BRANCHES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS STATEMENT OR CCDA OR ITS AFFILIATE BRANCHES, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF CCDA OR ITS AFFILIATE BRANCHES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, CCDA AND ITS AFFILIATE BRANCHES’ LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
Limitation of Monetary Damages If despite the release and waiver contained in these Terms of Service, an arbitrator determines that a user is entitled to recover any monetary damages against CCDA in contract or tort, the maximum amount shall not exceed the amount of the applicable fee actually paid by the user for use of these Services.
Business Uses If you are using these Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify CCDA and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, volunteers, and agents, from any third party’s claim, suit, or action arising from or related to the business’s use of these Services or violation of these Terms of Service, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.

Those links are provided as references and aids to help you identify and locate other Internet resources that may be of interest, but are not intended to state or imply that CCDA, or its affiliate Branches, are in any way affiliated or associated with, endorse or support, or are legally authorized to use any third party’s trade name, registered trademark, logo, legal or official seal, or any other copyrighted symbol that may be reflected in the links.
CCDA and its affiliated Branches are not responsible for any loss, injury, claim, liability, or damage related to your use of any third party’s website linked to these Sites, whether from errors or omissions in our Services or on these Sites, or any other linked sites.

Any changes will be posted and will indicate the date on which these Terms of Service were revised. Your access, visitation, and use of the Sites after the changes have been posted constitutes your acceptance of the new or revised Terms of Service.
Miscellaneous These Terms of Service make up the entire agreement between the parties regarding your use of our Services. If any portion of these Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable, the remaining portions will continue in full force and effect. If CCDA fails to enforce any of these Terms of Service, it will not constitute a waiver by CCDA. All of CCDA’s rights and obligations under these Terms of Service are freely assignable by CCDA in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise. Nothing in these Terms of Service shall prevent CCDA from complying with the law. You agree to comply with all applicable laws when using, visiting, or accessing our Services. The laws of the state of California shall apply to our Services and to any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service.
Arbitration You and CCDA agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. You agree that by accessing, using, and visiting our Services, you agree to these Terms of Service and are hereby waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This agreement evidences a transaction in the interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive the termination of these Terms of Service.
In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising from or relating to our Services or these Terms of Service, or the breach thereof, the parties shall use their best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this effect, they shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If they do not reach such solution within a period of 60 days, then, upon notice by either party to the other, all disputes, claims, questions, or differences shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. You and CCDA agree that any arbitration hearings will take place in Los Angeles, CA.
