By using our Websites or Turning Products, or by downloading any Turning Apps, you indicate your unconditional acceptance of the following Terms of Service.

Please read these Terms of Service carefully, as they may have changed since your last visit. We reserve the right to change these Terms of Service from time to time for any reason, which shall be effected by posting of the updated Terms of Service to the applicable Website(s); provided that such changes shall not apply to any fee-bearing subscriptions to the Turning Products which are then in effect until the expiration or termination of such subscription. These Terms of Service apply to all services and features of the Website(s) and Turning Products unless otherwise indicated. Certain Turning Products may require users’ agreement to supplemental terms and conditions of use, in which case such product-specific terms and conditions of use shall supersede these Terms of Service in the event of a conflict.

If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

12. No Implied Endorsements.

In no event shall any reference to any third party or third party product or service be construed as an approval or endorsement by Turning of that third party or of any product or service provided by a third party. Likewise, a link to any non- Turning website does not imply that we endorse or accept any responsibility for the content or use of such a website. Turning does not endorse, warrant or guarantee any product or service offered by any third party through an online discussion forum accessible through our Turning Products and will not be a party to or in any way monitor any transaction involving any third party providers of products or services.

These Terms of Service, and any dispute between you and Turning, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Ohio without regard to principles of conflicts of law and without regard to the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods, provided that the Federal Arbitration Act shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of the Arbitration. Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that Section 2 of the Federal Arbitration Act is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt-out of the Arbitration Procedures or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and the Turning must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the State of Ohio, except that (i) you or we are permitted to bring small claims actions in state court in the county in which you reside if such court has a small claims procedure and (ii) Turning shall have full recourse to the courts and civil, criminal and administrative laws of any jurisdiction worldwide to protect its intellectual property rights, without any limitation whatsoever. Except for such small claims court exceptions, you and Turning agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of Ohio for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes. You and Turning agree to waive trial by jury in any court proceeding.

18. Agreement to Arbitrate.

Except if you opt-out as expressly permitted in this Section 18 and except for disputes relating to your or Turning's intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents), you agree that all disputes between you and Turning (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, the Turning Products, and/or Privacy Policy shall be finally resolved by arbitration before a single arbitrator conducted in the English language in Youngstown or Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and you and Turning hereby expressly waive trial by jury. You and Turning shall appoint as sole arbitrator a person mutually agreed by you and Turning or, if you and Turning cannot agree within thirty (30) days of either party’s request for arbitration, such single arbitrator shall be selected by the AAA upon the request of either party. The parties shall bear equally the cost of the arbitration (except that the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys' fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such an amount as may be determined by the arbitrator). All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding this, application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Turning shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief, security or other equitable remedies from the United States District Court for a district in Massachusetts or any other court of competent jurisdiction. Under no circumstances shall the arbitrator be authorized to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Service or to award punitive damages, including but not limited to pursuant to federal or state statutes permitting multiple or punitive awards.

Any claims brought by you or Turning must be brought in that parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Neither you nor Turning will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms of Service. You hereby waive any and all rights to bring any claims related to these Terms of Service and Privacy Policy as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. You may bring claims only on your own behalf.
