2. The VuNOVA Rating
An VuNOVA Rating reflects VuNOVA's assessment of a given consultant, based upon the information obtained by or submitted to VuNOVA. Someone else's assessment of the same consultant may be very different, or be based upon different information. An VuNOVA Rating is not an endorsement of any particular consultant, and is not a guarantee of a consultant's quality, competency, or character. Nor is the VuNOVA Rating a predictor of the outcome of any matter in which such consultant is involved. Rather, the VuNOVA Rating is intended to be a starting point to gather information about consultants who may be suitable for your consultation needs - but you should not rely solely on the VuNOVA Rating in deciding whether to contact or hire any given consultant.
3. Information on the services
Our Services display both VuNOVA-created content and content that is not created or developed by VuNOVA (the "Legal Information"). We may review third party-content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But we do not routinely screen third-party content that is published via our Services. This includes the Legal Information that consultants post on VuNOVA, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy, adequacy or quality of any such Legal Information, or the qualifications of those posting it.
4. Client relationship
The Information found on VuNOVA is intended for general informational purposes only and should be used only as a starting point for addressing your issues or questions.

You understand that questions and answers or other postings to the Services are not confidential. Information or services provided here does not guarantee success.

5. Services for consumers
VuNOVA is a platform where consultants unaffiliated with VuNOVA can offer information and interact with consumers. We provide a number of methods by which you can purchase services or have a direct, confidential discussion of your legal issues with a consultant. Although some of these methods involve VuNOVA processing a transaction on your behalf, in all instances, VuNOVA is simply the intermediary in such transactions. You are liable for paying the consultant for the services provided. VuNOVA has no liability, either primarily or secondarily, for paying the consultant other than as an agent on your behalf. The fees you pay for such services are charged by the consultant and passed through to the consultant once services have been rendered. Any relationship formed as a result of such discussions is between you and the consultant you speak with—not between you and VuNOVA. Furthermore, you understand that VuNOVA cannot be held responsible for the quality or accuracy of any information provided by consultants you connect with via VuNOVA.

13. Mandatory Arbitration and Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
We hope we never have a dispute, but if we do, you and we agree to try for 60 days to resolve it informally. You may send us the details of your concern to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if VuNOVA is not able to informally resolve your complaint, you and VuNOVA agree to individual binding arbitration under JAMS Alternative Dispute resolution (“JAMS”) and the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and not to sue in court in front of a judge or jury. The arbitration will be conducted under the JAMS Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of review under the FAA. The following applies to any arbitration proceedings between you and VuNOVA:
Before moving an unresolved informal dispute into arbitration, you must first send us a Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and the specific relief sought. This notice may be sent via email or U.S. email@example.com
Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with JAMS within ONE (1) YEAR from when it first could be filed. Otherwise, it is permanently barred. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
Whenever feasible, the arbitration will be held telephonically unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. You may choose the location of any in-person hearing from either your county of residence; or, if you are a business, the county of your principal place of business; or, VuNOVA’s principal place of business in Orange County, WA.
The enforcement of the arbitrator’s award will be controlled by and conducted in conformity with the FAA. Judgment upon any award may be entered in any court holding jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate disputes as provided above, the following EXCEPTIONS will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
Small Claims Court. If the claim qualifies, either you or VuNOVA may bring an action in small claims court in Orange County, WA. Any small claims court action must be filed within one year from when it first could be filed. Otherwise, the claim is permanently barred.
Disputes not Covered by Arbitration. In the event that arbitration is found to be inapplicable or unenforceable for any reason, or if you exercise the option to opt-out of arbitration as provided below, the claim at issue will be brought under judicial proceedings in federal or state courts in Orange County, WA, and you and VuNOVA consent to personal jurisdiction and exclusive venue in such courts.
Option to Opt Out of Arbitration.You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor VuNOVA can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify us in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to the arbitration provision in these Terms. To opt out you must send us a clear statement that you want to opt out of arbitration, along with your name, residence or business address, and the email address associated with your account to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
NO CLASS ACTIONS: You may only bring individual claims. Under no circumstances are you allowed to bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and any other proceedings where someone acts in a representative capacity are not allowed. Any combining of individual proceedings must have the consent of all parties.
14. Applicable law
The laws of the State of California, excluding its conflict of law provisions, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services.
Notwithstanding any of these Terms, VuNOVA reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Services, and to block or prevent your access to and use of the Services. VuNOVA reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. In the event of termination of access to the Services for any reason, you have no right to obtain a copy of any data or communications you stored or effected via the Services, or any other data.
16. Entire agreement
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and VuNOVA with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any prior version of the Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
17. Waiver, severability, and assignment
VuNOVA's failure to enforce a provision of these Terms is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable Term or Terms will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any attempt to do so will be void. VuNOVA may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.18. Disclaimer of Warranties
