Latino Fashion Week does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Community, and, therefore, we specifically disclaim any liability concerning the Communities and any actions resulting from End Users’ participation in any Community, including any objectionable content. Generally, any communication which End User posts to us (whether in chat rooms, discussion groups, message boards or otherwise) is considered to be non-confidential. If particular web pages permit the submission of communications that will be treated by Latino Fashion Week as confidential, that fact will be stated on those pages. By posting comments, messages or other information on the Site or any Microsite, End User grants us the right to use such comments, messages or information for promotions, advertising, market research or any other lawful purpose without territorial, time or other limitation.

All rights in respect of this trademark are hereby expressly reserved by Latino Fashion Week. Unless otherwise indicated, all other trademarks appearing on here are the property of their respective owners.

15. Third-Party Content.
Latino Fashion Week, similar to an Internet Service Provider, is a distributor (and not a publisher) of content supplied by third parties and End Users.

Accordingly, Latino Fashion Week has no more editorial control over such content than does a public library, bookstore or newsstand. Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, including information providers, or any other end users are those of the respective author(s) or distributor(s) and not of Latino Fashion Week.

In many instances, the content available through this Site represents the opinions and judgments of the respective information provider, end user, or other user not under contract with Latino Fashion Week. We neither endorse nor are responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice, or statement made on our site by anyone other than authorized employee spokespersons while acting in official capacities. Under no circumstances will we be liable for any loss or damage caused by an end user’s reliance on information obtained through us.

Latino Fashion Week contains links to third-party websites maintained by other content providers. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by us of the contents on such third-party sites, and Latino Fashion Week hereby expressly disclaims any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such third-party websites. If End User decides to access linked third-party websites, End User does so at its own risk. Unless you have executed a written agreement with us expressly permitting you to do so, you may not provide a hyperlink to the Site or any Microsite from any other website. Latino Fashion Week reserves the right to revoke its consent to any link at any time in its sole discretion.

16. Miscellaneous.
This Agreement, including the Terms of Sale set forth below (which are incorporated into this Agreement), and any operating rules for Latino Fashion Week established by us, constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder is a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall be of no legal force or effect. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of any other provisions contained in this Agreement, and the remaining portions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. The failure of either party to exercise any of its rights under this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of such rights or any other rights provided hereunder.

17. Arbitration.
By using this Site, End User agrees that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy End User may have against Latino Fashion Week arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with this Agreement, this Site, or any Microsite, or the purchase or sale of any product or service, shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by AAA (“Rules and Procedures”); (2) the arbitration shall be held at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for End User), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by End User and Latino Fashion Week; (3) the arbitrator shall apply Illinois law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (4) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only the End User’s and/or Latino Fashion Week individual claims; and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (5) in the event that the End User is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Latino Fashion Week will pay as much of the End User’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (6) with the exception of subpart (4) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (4) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither End User nor Latino Fashion Week shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on AAA and its Rules and Procedures, End Users may visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.

18. Disclosures.
