12.  No Warranties.  The Program may not be available in all areas at all times and may not continue to work in the event of product, software, coverage or other changes made by your wireless carrier. Accordingly, THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND KMC HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND/OR THAT THE PROGRAM WILL BE SECURE, UNINTERRUPTED OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, KMC is not responsible for technical, hardware, software, electronic, network, telephone or other communications malfunctions, errors or failures of any kind, errors in transmission, traffic congestion, lost or unavailable network connections, telephone connections, wireless phone connections, web site, Internet or ISP availability, unauthorized human intervention, traffic congestion, incomplete or inaccurate capture of entry information (regardless of cause) or failed, incomplete, garbled, jumbled or delayed transmissions which may limit or restrict your ability to send a message, including any injury or damage to your or any other person’s wireless device relating to or resulting from participating in the Program.

13.  Limitation of Liability.  UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL KMC OR ITS EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS OR SERVICE PROVIDERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH USE OF THE PROGRAM WHETHER OR NOT KMC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  If you are dissatisfied with the Program, any content furnished as part of the Program or with these Terms & Conditions, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue participating in the Program.  You acknowledge, by your participation in the Program, that your use of the Program is at your sole risk.

14.  Release.  By participating in the Program, you agree to release and hold harmless KMC, its employees, officers, directors and third party service providers, and participating wireless carriers (collectively, the “Released Parties”) and their respective representatives, agents, successors, assigns, employees, officers and directors, from any and all liability, for loss, harm, damage, injury, cost or expense whatsoever, including without limitation property damage, personal injury and/or death which may occur in connection with the Program, and for any claims based on violation of law or infringement or violation of any rights of any person or entity, including without limitation violation of privacy or publicity rights, defamation, invasion of privacy, and marketing violations.  The Released Parties are not responsible for any printing, typographical, mechanical or other errors in promotional materials provided in connection with the Program.  Participating wireless carriers and/or each of their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, shareholders, officers, directors, agents, representatives and employees are not responsible for the Program, and none of them will have any liability or responsibility for any claim arising in connection with the Program.

15.  Dispute Resolution.

a.       First Step: Informal Dispute Resolution. If any dispute arises regarding these Terms & Conditions, the Program or KMC’s delivery of text messages via automated technology to you (individually a “Dispute,” and collectively “Disputes”), then you and KMC agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it.  KMC’s notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provided KMC (including via text or message).  If no such information exists or if such information is not current, then KMC has no obligation under this section of the Terms & Conditions governing Dispute Resolution (this “Dispute Resolution Section”). Your notice to KMC must be sent to: Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., P.O. Box 25252, Santa Ana, CA 92799-5252. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, KMC and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute, although nothing will require either you or KMC to resolve the Dispute on terms with respect to which you and KMC, in each of your and KMC’s sole discretion, are not comfortable.

b.      Binding Arbitration.  Any Dispute that cannot first be resolved through informal methods as described in “First Step: Informal Dispute Resolution” of this Dispute Resolution Section shall be submitted to binding arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect (the “Rules”).  The arbitral hearing shall take place in Orange County, California. After the hearing, the arbitrator(s) shall decide the controversy and render a written decision setting forth the issues adjudicated, the resolution thereof and the reasons for the award.  Payment of the expenses of arbitration, including the fee of the arbitrator(s), shall be assessed by the arbitrator(s) based on the extent to which each party prevails. Any decision rendered in such arbitration proceedings will be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered thereon in any court of competent jurisdiction.

c.       Federal and State Courts in Orange County, California.  Any enforcement of any arbitration decision or award may only be instituted in a state or Federal court located in Orange County, California. Accordingly, you and KMC consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters to the exclusion of any other court which otherwise might have had jurisdiction.

d.      No Class Action Matters.   Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.  THIS MEANS YOU AND KMC AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS REGARDING SUCH DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.  There shall be no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or on any basis involving Disputes brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated.  If for any reason any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction regarding arbitration on a class-action basis is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the Dispute must be brought exclusively in a State or Federal court located in Orange County, California. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Dispute Resolution Section, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of this paragraph, including the class action waiver provisions contained herein (described as “No Class Action Matters” in this Dispute Resolution Section), are to be decided only by a Federal or State Court located in Orange County, California, and not by the arbitrator.

e.       Limited Time to File Claims.  TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR KMC WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR KMC MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN “FIRST STEP: INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION” OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION SECTION) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES, OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.

16.  Revisions; Effective Date.  These Terms & Conditions may change at any time and are effective upon posting.  You are bound by any such revisions, so you should periodically check back to review the current Terms & Conditions.  Remember, you may always opt out of the Program.  These Terms & Conditions were last revised on November 5, 2013.
