3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material.

THEREFORE, THE WEBSITES AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, GRACE BIBLE CHURCH AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, PARTNERS, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MEMBERS, MANAGERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND LICENSORS (COLLECTIVELY, THE "GRACE BIBLE CHURCH PARTIES") DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE GRACE BIBLE CHURCH PARTIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE WEBSITES OR SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, THAT THE SERVICE OR SERVERS THAT MAKE THE WEBSITES AND SERVICES AVAILABLE WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, OR THAT ANY DESCRIPTIONS OR DEPICTIONS, OR OTHER CONTENT OFFERED AS PART OF THE WEBSITES OR SERVICES, ARE ACCURATE, RELIABLE, CURRENT OR COMPLETE.

YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITES AND SERVICES ARE AT YOUR SOLE RISK. IF YOU DOWNLOAD ANY CONTENT FROM THE WEBSITES OR SERVICES, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK. YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR MOBILE DEVICE OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF ANY CONTENT THROUGH THE WEBSITES OR SERVICES.

8. Injunctive Relief

Your breach of these Terms of Use may result in immediate and irreparable harm to us, for which there may be no adequate remedy at law, and, therefore, you agree that we are entitled to equitable relief to compel you to cease and desist all unauthorized use, evaluation and disclosure of information obtained through the Websites or Services, which is in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity.

9. Arbitration Agreement and Waiver of Class Action

Except as set forth below, ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING UNDER THESE TERMS OF USE, INCLUDING THE PRIVACY POLICY INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE, OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITES OR SERVICES WILL BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT; provided, however, that the following are exceptions to our agreement to arbitrate our disputes:

a) Any claim that qualifies as a small claim in a court of limited subject matter jurisdiction must be brought in such court; and

b) Any claim for injunctive relief may be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction to enjoin intellectual property infringement or misuse.

Any dispute or claim arising under these Terms of Use, including the Privacy Policy incorporated herein by reference or relating in any way to your use of the Websites or Services will first attempt to be resolved by mediation, and if not resolved by mediation, then you may begin an arbitration proceeding by following the Institute for Christian Conciliation's filing requirements and mailing a request for arbitration and description of your claim to Creative Team, 1415 W Lone Star, Nampa, ID 83651. The Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation, Institute for Christian Conciliation will apply (available at http://www.peacemaker.net or by calling 406-256-1583). The arbitrator will have the power to rule on any challenge to its own jurisdiction or to the validity or enforceability of any portion of this agreement to arbitrate. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, THE ARBITRATOR WILL NOT BE EMPOWERED AND DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO HEAR OR DECIDE ANY CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, TO AWARD PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OR TO AWARD ATTORNEYS’ FEES TO THE PREVAILING PARTY. In the event that the Institute for Christian Conciliation ceases to exist during the course of this Agreement, arbitration under this section shall be conducted according to the Rules of the American Arbitration Association.

You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate by providing written notice of your intention to do so to Grace Bible Church within 60 days of the earlier of your first use of the Websites or Services or your creating a Grace Connect Account.

By using the Websites or Services, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Idaho, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Use (including the Privacy Policy incorporated herein by reference) and any dispute or claim of any sort that might arise between you and Grace Bible Church.

10. No Waiver; Severability

A waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use is not a waiver of any repetition of such breach and will not in any manner affect any other terms or conditions of these Terms of Use. We do not waive any rights by the failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Use in every instance in which it might apply. In the event that any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be unenforceable, it will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and will be replaced by an enforceable provision that is the closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision.

11. Assignability

We may assign our rights and delegate our duties under these Terms of Use either in whole or in part at any time without notice. You may not assign, sublicense or otherwise transfer your rights or obligations, in whole or in part, under these Terms of Use to anyone else without our prior written consent.

12. Relationship

This Agreement does not establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency between you and us.
