SENTYNL SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICES, EVEN IF SENTYNL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO RELIANCE BY ANY PARTY ON ANY CONTENT OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR THAT ARISES IN CONNECTION WITH MISTAKES OR OMISSIONS IN, OR DELAYS IN TRANSMISSION OF, INFORMATION TO OR FROM THE USER, INTERRUPTIONS IN TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONNECTIONS TO THE SERVICES OR VIRUSES, WHETHER CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY NEGLIGENCE, ACTS OF GOD, WAR, TERRORISM, TELECOMMUNICATIONS FAILURE, THEFT OR DESTRUCTION OF, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO THE SERVICES.

IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.”

No settlement that affects the rights or obligations of Sentynl may be made without Sentynl’s prior written approval.
Sentynl agrees to indemnify you for any direct damages that you suffer arising out of or related to any suit, action or proceeding by a third party to the extent such direct damages arise from a claim that your use of the Services in compliance with these Terms infringes a third party’s United States patent, copyright, or trademark right.
- ELECTRONIC CONTRACTING
Your affirmative act of using and/or registering for the Services constitutes your consent to enter into agreements with Sentynl electronically.
- INFORMATION, NEWS AND PRESS RELEASES
The Services may contain information, news, and/or press releases about Sentynl. While this information was believed to be accurate as of the date it was prepared, Sentynl disclaims any duty or obligation to update this information, news, or any press releases. Information about companies other than Sentynl contained in the news, press releases or otherwise, should not be relied upon as being provided or endorsed by Sentynl.
- THIRD-PARTY SITES & SERVICES
The Services may contain links to third-party websites and services, including social media (collectively, “Linked Services”). Linked Services are not under the control of Sentynl, and Sentynl is not responsible for Linked Services or for any information or materials on or any form of transmission received from any Linked Service. The inclusion of a link does not imply endorsement by Sentynl of the Linked Service or any association with the operators of the Linked Service. Sentynl does not investigate, verify, or monitor the Linked Services. Sentynl provides links to Linked Services for your convenience only. You access Linked Services at your own risk and subject to the privacy policies, terms and conditions of use, and other legal provisions applicable to the Linked Services.
- SENTYNL’S LINKING POLICY
Unless otherwise set forth in a written agreement between you and Sentynl, you must adhere to the following rules if you link to any portion of the Services: (i) any link to the Services must be a text only link clearly marked “Sentynl Service”; (ii) the appearance, position and other aspects of the link may not damage or dilute the goodwill associated with Sentynl’s Marks; (iii) the link must “point” to the root domain name of the Sentynl Services and not to other pages within the Services; (iv) the appearance, position, and other attributes of the link may not create the false appearance that your organization or entity is sponsored by, affiliated with, or associated with Sentynl; (v) when selected by a user, the link must display the Service on full-screen and not within a “frame” on the linking website or service; and (vi) Sentynl reserves the right to revoke its consent to the link at any time and in its sole discretion.
- DISPUTE RESOLUTION
The laws of the State of California shall govern these Terms, without reference to its choice of law rules. You and Sentynl agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the interpretation or construction of these Terms.
YOU AND SENTYNL AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or CLASS member in any PURPORTED class or representative action or proceeding.
YOU AND SENTYNL AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION IN THE MANNER SPECIFIED IN THIS SECTION 12 AND THAT YOU AND SENTYNL WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING SUCH CLAIMS BEFORE ANY COURT OF LAW. RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Any controversy or claim arising under or related to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination, or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of these Terms to arbitration (collectively, “Covered Disputes”) shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial rules of arbitration of the Center for Conflict Resolution (“CCR Rules”). Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be conducted in San Diego County, California, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. Either you or Sentynl may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in San Diego County, California, necessary to protect the rights or property of you or Sentynl pending the completion of arbitration.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the CCR Rules. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, Sentynl will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Sentynl for all fees associated with the arbitration that Sentynl paid on your behalf which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the CCR Rules.
A single arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the CCR Rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity, and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms, and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. The arbitrator’s decision must be with written explanation and remain confidential.
If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section 12 is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration). Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice of any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes of this Section 12, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
- SECURITIES LAWS
The Services website may include statements concerning Sentynl’s operations, prospects, strategies, financial condition, future economic performance, and demand for Sentynl’s products or services, as well as its intentions, plans and objectives, which are forward-looking statements. These statements are based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that are subject to significant uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control. When used on or in the Services, words like “anticipates,” “expects,” “believes,” “estimates,” “seeks,” “plans,” “intends,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements designed to fall within securities law safe harbors for forward-looking statements. The Services and the information contained herein do not constitute an offer or a solicitation of an offer for sale of any securities. None of the information contained herein is intended to be, and shall not be deemed to be, incorporated into any securities-related filings or documents.

The Services may be subject to United States export control laws, including the Export Administration Act and its associated regulations. You shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Services to, or make the Services accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by law, rule, or regulation. You shall comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations, and rules and complete all required undertakings, including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval, prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing or otherwise making the Services available outside the United States.
You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a United States Government embargo or that has been designated by the United States Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
Please note: By agreeing to these Terms, you explicitly agree that any claims or actions that you may otherwise have against Sentynl under the laws of any jurisdiction outside the United States are hereby waived and that your sole location and applicable law for any dispute is in the United States according to the terms of Section 12.
- DATA PRIVACY AND PROTECTION
Please make sure that you carefully read our Privacy Statement to learn about the information that Sentynl collects through the Services and how we process it.
Without limiting the terms of Sentynl’s Privacy Statement, you understand that Sentynl does not and cannot guarantee that your use of the Services and/or the information provided by you through the Services will be private or secure. Except as expressly required by law, Sentynl is not responsible or liable to you for any lack of privacy or security you may experience. You are responsible for using the precautions and security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the Services. Sentynl reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as Sentynl deems necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or protect the security of Personal Information and the Services.
- UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT RIGHTS
Certain parts of the Services are commercial computer software, as such term is defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101. Accordingly, if you are an agency of the United States Government, or any contractor thereof, you receive only those rights with respect to the Services as are granted to all other users under license, in accordance with (a) 48 C.F.R. §227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. §227.7204, with respect to the Department of Defense and their contractors; or (b) 48 C.F.R. §12.212, with respect to all other United States Government licensees and their contractors.
These Terms automatically terminate when you fail to comply with any term or condition of them. Sentynl may terminate or modify your access to the Services, with or without notice to you, at any time for any reason. For example, access to the Services may be denied without notice if Sentynl believes that you are a minor.
Termination will not limit any of Sentynl’s other rights or remedies. Any provision that must survive to give proper effect to the intent and purpose of these Terms (including but not limited to Sections 6, 7, 12, 15, 18 and 19) shall survive termination.
- These Terms (which include our Privacy Statement) contain the entire understanding by and between Sentynl and you with respect to the matters contained herein.
- These Terms inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon Sentynl’s and your successors and assigns, respectively.
- These Terms may be assigned by Sentynl, but you may not assign these Terms without the prior express written consent of Sentynl.
- If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unenforceable or invalid, the remaining provisions will continue with the same effect as if such unenforceable or invalid provision had not been used.
- If Sentynl fails or you fail to perform any obligation under these Terms and the other party does not enforce such obligation, the failure to enforce on any occasion will not constitute a waiver of any obligation and will not prevent enforcement on any other occasion.
- Nothing contained in these Terms will be deemed to constitute Sentynl or you as the agent or representative of the other or as joint venturers or partners.
- If Sentynl or you are prevented from performing or unable to perform any obligation under these Terms due to any cause beyond the reasonable control of the party invoking this provision, the affected party’s performance will be extended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such cause.
- Headings and captions are for convenience only.
