We assume no responsibility for your compliance with any law, rule, regulation, or agreement. We reserve the right to investigate, and seek applicable remedies for, violations of applicable law to the fullest extent of the law.
The use, consumption, sale, trade, and production of cannabis, and any other practices related to cannabis, carry inherent risks, which may include but are not limited to: physical and mental health risks, safety risks, risk of criminal or civil liability, and others. You understand and agree that you understand these risks, and that you assume all risks associated with your practices involving cannabis, and/or with any activities you engage in that are related in any way to the Service.
While the Service provides the opportunity for users to obtain goods and services from third parties, we assume no responsibility whatsoever for such goods and services. Specifically, we do not make any warranties about, nor do we endorse, any goods or services offered through the Service, nor do we corroborate the accuracy or truth of any claims made by users or third parties through the Service.
As part of the Service, we may provide you with various information, such as suggested products, techniques, and other information, whether through push notifications, emails, or otherwise. Our intention in doing so is to be helpful and to make the Service more useful to you. However, you represent and warrant to use that all information and suggestions that we provide to you through the Service is strictly for informational purposes and shall not be construed or relied upon in any way, and specifically shall not be construed or relied upon as professional advice of any kind including, but not limited to, medical, legal, tax, or other professional advice.

In addition, we should not be relied upon as a means to store your data or information and we assume no responsibility for such activities.
You agree not to post or make available any inappropriate content on the Service including, but not limited to, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, or threatening content; content that advocates or encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national, or foreign law or regulation; content that is misleading or not true; or advertise or otherwise solicits funds for goods or services. If you post inappropriate content, we may remove such content from our servers, and we may suspend or terminate your Account, and we reserve the right to investigate, and seek applicable remedies for, violations of applicable law to the fullest extent of the law.
We take claims of intellectual property infringement seriously. As such, we reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate the account of any user who is found to have infringed on the intellectual property rights of users, third parties, or us, or otherwise is found to have violated any intellectual property laws.

Although you may provide information as part of your use of the Service, you agree to be respectful of others' intellectual property rights. You may not upload, download, display, perform, transmit, or otherwise distribute any information or content in violation of intellectual property laws or proprietary rights of any third parties. If you do not respect a third party's intellectual property or proprietary rights, you are solely responsible for any violations of law. In addition, you are solely responsible for infringement of third party rights caused by any information that is generated from your account.
Our Service may be integrated with services provided by third parties as part of the functionality of the Service including, but not limited to, third party payment processors and others. We have no control over third parties and make no guarantees about, and assume no responsibility for, the information or services provided by third parties.
Additionally, we may provide links to third-party websites and businesses. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the accuracy, content, or functionality of services provided on or by such third-party websites or businesses, and we do not endorse, nor assume any liability related to your use of, such websites or businesses in any way.
You shall not violate or attempt to violate any security features of the Service, including, without limitation, (a) accessing content or data not intended for you, or logging onto a server or account that you are not authorized to access; (b) attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of the Service, or any associated system or network, or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization; (c) interfering or attempting to interfere with service to any user, host, or network, including, without limitation, by means of submitting a virus to the Service, overloading, "flooding," "spamming," "mail bombing," "crashing," or undertaking similar activities; and (d) forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any e-mail or in any posting using the Service.
The software, including all files and images contained in the Service, and accompanying data, as well as all data provided by users and/or collected by us through the Service (collectively "Our IP") are the property of Botana, or are used with permission from third parties. As part of these Terms, we grant you a nonexclusive, nontransferable, and revocable license to use Our IP solely for the purposes for which it is intended. And, specifically, you may not sell, redistribute, download, export, or reproduce Our IP in any way. You also may not decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, or otherwise convert Our IP without our permission. This Section does not apply to any component of Our IP that may be offered under an open source license.
WE ARE MAKING THE SERVICE AVAILABLE "AS IS" AND, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT. YOU ASSUME THE RISK OF ANY AND ALL DAMAGE OR LOSS FROM USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT OPERATION OF THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, OR LOST DATA, REGARDLESS OF THE FORESEEABILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: ANY CLAIM RELATED TO PERSONAL OR BODILY INJURY IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE SERVICE; ANY HARM OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY, OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO, YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES THROUGH THE SERVICE; ANY LOSS OR UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF DATA; ANY HARM OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOUR USE, CONSUMPTION, SALE, TRADE, OR PRODUCTION OF CANNABIS, AND ANY OTHER PRACTICES RELATED TO CANNABIS; ANY HARM OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY, OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO, YOUR USE OF OR INTERACTION WITH ANY GOODS OR SERVICES OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICE; AND ANY VIOLATIONS OF APPLICABLE LAWS, RULES, REGULATIONS, AND OTHER AGREEMENTS. THIS LIMITATION SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY OR FORM OF ACTION.
IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00).
THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND US.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
In the event that someone brings a claim against us related to your actions, content, information, or any other use of the Service by you, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our agents harmless from and against any and all third party claims, losses, liability, damages, and/or costs (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) relating to such claim. We will notify you promptly of any such claim and will provide you with reasonable assistance, at your expense, in defending any such claim, provided, however, that our failure to so notify you shall not relieve you of your indemnity obligations, but instead shall reduce those obligations by the amount of damages or increased costs and expenses attributable to our failure to give notice. We reserve the right to approve counsel retained by you, to take control of the defense (at our expense) of any claim for which indemnity is required, and to participate in the defense of any claim (at our expense) for which indemnity is required. You may not settle any claim without our prior consent.
You agree to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Service in the following manner. First, we both agree to attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute informally by contacting each other by email (you can email us at email@example.com). Second, if the dispute is not resolved through informal resolution, we both agree to attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute through mediation administered by JAMS, which shall take place in Orange County, California, and the costs of which shall be divided equally between you and Botana. Third, if the dispute is not resolved through informal resolution and mediation, we both agree to participate in binding arbitration administered by JAMS, which shall take place in Orange County, California.
Either you or we may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief without first engaging in the dispute resolution process described above.
We both agree that, in the event of arbitration, or in the event of a lawsuit as permitted by this Section or otherwise, the prevailing party shall be entitled to costs and fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees). Arbitration pursuant to this Section shall be confidential, and neither you, nor Botana, nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. There shall be no right or authority for any claims subject to this arbitration clause to be arbitrated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public (including, but not limited to, as a private attorney general). If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
YOU AND BOTANA EACH HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.
Nothing contained in this Section shall limit our ability to terminate, or otherwise take action related to, your account as provided in these Terms.
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions. In the event that a lawsuit is filed where permitted under the provisions above, or in the event that the provisions above are found not to apply to you or to a given dispute, we both agree that any judicial proceeding will be brought in the federal or state courts of Orange County, California. Both you and we consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
If, for whatever reason, any term or condition in these Terms is found unenforceable, all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. The failure to enforce any provision of these Terms is not a waiver of our right to do so later, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
Botana reserves the right to change these Terms from time to time, with or without notice to you. If you continue to use the Service, you consent to the new Terms. Botana will always have the latest Terms posted on the Service.
If you have any questions about these Terms or our Service, please feel free to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
