14. Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability
THE PROGRAM, THE AMAZON SITE, SELLER CENTRAL, DEVELOPER PORTAL, PROGRAM POLICIES, CONTENT, AND THE AMAZON MARKS, (COLLECTIVELY THE "SERVICE OFFERINGS") ARE PROVIDED "AS IS.” WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING ANY LOSS OF REVENUE, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, OR DATA) ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS LOGIN WITH AMAZON AGREEMENT OR THE SERVICE OFFERINGS, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES.

WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM, WITH RESPECT TO ALL THE SERVICE OFFERINGS, ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
The Governing Laws will govern this Login with Amazon Agreement, without reference to rules governing choice of laws or the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. If the Amazon Site applicable to your use is Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.cn, Amazon.in, Amazon.com.br, or their successor websites, Amazon and you both consent that any dispute with Amazon or its affiliates or claim relating in any way to your use of the Program or this Login with Amazon Agreement as it relates to your use of the Program in connection with Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.cn, Amazon.in, Amazon.com.br, or their successor websites will be adjudicated in the Governing Courts, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the Governing Courts.
If the Amazon Site applicable to your use is Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Amazon.com.au, Amazon.de, Amazon.es, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, Amazon.com.mx, or their successor websites, Amazon and you both consent that any dispute with Amazon or its affiliates or claim relating in any way to this Login with Amazon Agreement or your use of the Program will be resolved by binding arbitration as described in this paragraph, rather than in court, except that (i) you may assert claims in a small claims court that is a Governing Court if your claims qualify and (ii) you or we may bring suit in the Governing Courts, submitting to the jurisdiction of the Governing Courts and waiving our respective rights to any other jurisdiction, to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that our rights in the Content are of a special, unique, extraordinary character, giving them peculiar value, the loss of which cannot be readily estimated or adequately compensated for in monetary damages. 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 this Login with Amazon Agreement as a court would. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, CSC Services of Nevada, Inc., 2215-B Renaissance Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89119. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Amazon will not seek attorneys' fees and costs from you in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Amazon and you 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 Amazon and you each waive any right to a jury trial.
If the Amazon Site applicable to your use is Amazon.ca or its successor websites, then it is the express wish of the parties that this Login with Amazon Agreement and the applicable Schedules and Program Policies have been drafted in English. (The following is a French translation of the preceding sentence: Si le site d’Amazon qui s’applique à votre utilisation est Amazon.ca ou un site successeur, les parties demandent expressément que la présente autorisation et les annexes et politiques applicables soient rédigées en anglais) If the Amazon Site applicable to your use is Amazon.ca, Amazon.de, Amazon.es, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, Amazon.com.br, or Amazon.com.mx, or their respective successor websites, we may make available translations of this Login with Amazon Agreement and the applicable Schedules and Program Policies, but the English version will control.
