DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

THE DESERET BOOK SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE DESERET BOOK SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY DESERET BOOK/LDS LIVING ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. DESERET BOOK/LDS LIVING MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE DESERET BOOK SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE DESERET BOOK SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE DESERET BOOK SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, DESERET BOOK/LDS LIVING DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. DESERET BOOK/LDS LIVING DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE DESERET BOOK SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE DESERET BOOK SERVICES, DESERET BOOK'S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM DESERET BOOK/LDS LIVING ARE FREE OF VIRUSES, MALWARE OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, DESERET BOOK/LDS LIVING WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY DESERET BOOK SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU OR MADE AVAILABLE BY YOU THROUGH ANY DESERET BOOK SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.

DISPUTES

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Deseret Book Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by LDS Living and/or through Deseret Book.com will be resolved by mediation followed by binding arbitration if necessary, rather than in court. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration laws apply to this agreement. Any such mediation and/or arbitration will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah. Each party will be responsible for their own costs and the cost of the mediator will be divided equally between the parties.

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 terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would. Notwithstanding any of the previous, the maximum amount Deseret Book, LDS Living and affiliates can be held liable for any claim is $1,000.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. 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.

APPLICABLE LAW

By using any Deseret Book Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Utah, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Deseret Book.

SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY

Please review our other policies, such as our privacy policy, posted on this site. These policies also govern your use of Deseret Book Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Terms of Use, and these Conditions of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
