You release us from all liability relating to your connections and relationships with other Members.

We make no representations or warranties as to the conduct of users or the veracity of any information users provide.

12.2 Limitation of Liability. You agree that in no event shall Climbfind be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if Climbfind has been advised of the possibility of such damages), arising out of or in connection with our Platform or this Agreement or the inability to use our Platform (however arising, including negligence), arising out of or in connection with third parties, or arising out of or in connection with your use of our Platform.
13.1Process. The parties will attempt in good faith to resolve through negotiation any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including the documents it incorporates by reference, your use of our Platform or Content, Your Information, your violation of any law or the rights of a third party, or your participation in a Session (whether the dispute, claim or controversy is due to or arising out of you attendance at, participation in, or the actions of you or other users at a Session). In the event that the dispute, claim or controversy is not resolved by these negotiations, the matter will be submitted to mediation services, for mediation pursuant to Section 13.3, and if the matter is not resolved through mediation, then it shall be submitted to arbitration for a final and binding arbitration pursuant to Section 13.4. Nonetheless, legal action taken by Climbfind to collect any fees and/or recover damages for, or obtain an injunction relating to, our Website operations, intellectual property or our Platform, shall not be submitted to mediation or arbitration, except as otherwise agreed to in writing by Climbfind. In addition, Climbfind may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a Court of competent jurisdiction to protect the rights or property of Climbfind pending the completion of arbitration.
13.2Negotiation. Either party may initiate negotiations by providing written notice in letter form to the other party, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested. The recipient of such notice will respond in writing within fifteen (15) business days with a statement of its position on and recommended solution to the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved by this exchange of correspondence, then representatives of each party with full settlement authority will meet in person or otherwise at a mutually agreeable time and place within thirty (30) business days of the date of the initial notice in order to exchange relevant information and perspectives, and to attempt to resolve the dispute through mediation pursuant to Section 13.3.
13.3Mediation. Either party may commence mediation by providing to the other party a written request for mediation, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested. The parties will cooperate with one another in selecting a mediator from a panel of neutrals, and in scheduling the mediation proceedings. The parties agree that they will participate in the mediation in good faith, and that they will share equally in its costs. All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the mediation by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts and attorneys, and by the mediator or its employees, are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any arbitration or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the mediation. Either party may initiate arbitration with respect to the matters submitted to mediation by filing a written demand for arbitration at any time following the initial mediation session or forty-five (45) days after the date of filing the written request for mediation, whichever occurs first. The mediation may continue after the commencement of arbitration if the parties so desire. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediator shall be disqualified from serving as arbitrator in the case.
13.4Arbitration. The parties agree that any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement that are not resolved by their mutual agreement by negotiation or mediation under Sections 13.2 and 13.3, shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration.
