If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do 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 or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
(The juicy stuff)
Choice of Law. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the State of Arizona, without regard to the conflicts of law’s provisions thereof.
Any claim or cause of action you may have with respect to the Company or the Site must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arose.
Arbitration Agreement. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION TERMS CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH THE COMPANY AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM IT.
Both you and the Company acknowledge and agree that for the purposes of any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms, the Company’s officers, directors, employees, and independent contractors (collectively, “Personnel”) are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms, and that upon your acceptance of these Terms, Personnel will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as the third party beneficiary hereof.
(a) Arbitration Rules; Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. Any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms shall be finally settled by binding arbitration in Phoenix, Arizona. The arbitration will proceed in the English language, in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS/Endispute, LLC (“JAMS”) then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction.
(b) Costs of Arbitration. The JAMS rules will govern the payment of all arbitration fees. The Company will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $5,000. The Company will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous
(c) Small Claims Court. Either you or the Company may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Maricopa County, Arizona, or any United States county where you live or work.
(d) Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND THE COMPANY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE AND/OR JURY. You and the Company are instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and the Company over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND THE COMPANY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL and elect to have the dispute resolved by a judge alone.
(e) Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHTS TO CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED ACTIONS. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor the Company is entitled to arbitration; instead, all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth in (g) below.
(f) Opt-out. You have the right to opt-out of the provisions of this Section by sending an electronic mail notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: email@example.com Subject Line: VP Compliance & Corp. within 30 days of first accepting these Terms. You must include (1) your name and residence address; (2) the email address and/or telephone number associated with your account; and (3) a clear statement that you want to opt-out of these Terms’ arbitration agreement.
(g) Exclusive Venue. If you send the opt-out notice in (f), and/or in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration terms permit either you or the Company to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party and both you and the Company agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the state or federal courts located in Phoenix, Arizona.

Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. Notices to the Company shall be by email, certified, or overnight mail if we have your contact information.

You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that are applicable to certain parts of the Site, including the Customer Service Agreement. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between the Company and you as a result of the Terms or your use of the Site.

Right to Opt-out of Sales: We are not selling personal information of California residents. Further, we will not sell personal information if we have actual knowledge that the consumer is less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (“opt-in”) from either the consumer between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age.
If you would like to register your choice with regard to future uses of your personal information, please visit us at our Data Subject Request web page by clicking here and we will register your details for this purpose.

By visiting www.privacyrights.info or optout.privacyrights.info, you can opt out of this type of use of personal information by businesses that participate in the opt out tool. To make opt-out requests related to mobile apps on your device for businesses participating in the DAA’s CCPA App-based Opt-Out Tool, you can download the appropriate app at www.youradchoices.com/appchoices
These links are provided as a courtesy and does that mean that New Alturas, its subsidiaries, any of its financial and non-financial partners participate in ANY of the programs listed here.
Right to Delete: You have the right to request that we delete and direct any service providers that have received that personal information to delete, the personal information that we have collected and retained, unless an exemption applies. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will delete (and, if applicable, direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exemption applies.
Right to Access: You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will disclose to you:
- the categories of personal information we collected about you;
- the categories of sources of personal information we collected about you;

We will respond to verifiable requests received from California residents as required by law. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf, but the agent must provide proof that the agent is authorized to make a request on your behalf.
We may ask you for additional information necessary to verify or process your request. Where applicable, we may ask for proof that an authorized agent is entitled to act on your behalf. We may also carry out checks, including with third-party identity verification services, to verify your identity before taking any action with your personal information. We will endeavor to respond your verifiable requests within 45 days of receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request receipt. Generally, California residents can exercise rights free of charge. However, if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, for example because it is repetitive, we are entitled to charge you a reasonable fee. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Non- Discrimination: You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights or impose unreasonable requirements on financial incentives offered to California consumers related to your personal information. We may offer different prices, rates, or quality of goods or services if the difference is reasonably related to the value of your personal information.
