Our liability to you shall in no event exceed the total aggregate amount of fees that you paid for our Products. Some jurisdictions do not allow any limitation of liability, so these limitations may not apply to you.
13. RELEASE OF CLAIMS
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release and waive our directors, officers, employees, independent contractors, representatives, and agents from any and all liability for claims, damages (actual and or consequential), costs and expenses (including litigation costs and attorneys’ fees) of every kind and nature arising from or in any way related to Company, our Website, or our Product. If applicable, you waive your rights under California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “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 must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” You understand that any fact relating to any matter covered by this release may be found to be other than now believed to be true, and accept and assume the risk of such possible differences in fact. In addition, you expressly waive and relinquish any and all rights which you may have had under any other state or federal statute or common law principle of similar effect, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
By using this Website or purchasing our Product, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Company, this Website, and our directors, officers, employees, independent contractors, representatives, and agents against any third party claim, liability, expense, loss, damage, costs, suit, judgment litigation cost, or attorneys fees arising from or in any way related to your use of this Website or our Product.

16. AFFILIATE PROGRAM
We strongly advise affiliates to stay compliant with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines on testimonials and endorsements. All endorsements, reviews, testimonials on SpinLight360.com’s and HD PhotoVideo Inc.’s products and services, as well as relationships between other types of content websites (forums, blogs, microblogs and other Social Media channels) and SpinLight360.com and HD PhotoVideo Inc. must be clearly disclosed in a separate policy on the affiliate sites. FTC points out that “when there exists a connection between the endorser and the seller of the advertised product” it is imperative that such connection is “fully disclosed”. FTC deems the relationship in an endorser-sponsor light, and believes that the end user has the right to understand that one exists [full text here]. We share the undergirding idea of this approach, and strongly encourage our affiliates to adhere to the FTC’s rules. We also reserve the right to terminate relationship with any non-compliant affiliates.
17. AFFILIATE DISCLOSURE
We participate in several affiliate program’s including B&H, Adorama and Amazon.com. If you click on a link or photo at our site that takes you to these websites and you complete a purchase we get a small commission.
We always give our honest opinions and findings on any topic or products we discuss. Our membership in affiliate programs and the compensation we receive does not influence our opinions and findings. The views and opinions expressed in our blog are purely the blogger’s. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
18. USE OF INFORMATION
We may use your information in order to serve you better and improve your overall shopping experience, and for marketing and promotional purposes.

We reserve the right to discontinue this Website and our Product at any time in our sole discretion. You agree that we may assign these Terms of Service without prior notice to a successor entity in the event of a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or part of our business. No waiver of any breach of the Terms of Service, no matter how long continuing or how often repeated will be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach, nor shall any delay or omission to exercise any right, power, or privilege hereunder be deemed a waiver of such right, power, or privilege. If any section of these Terms of Service is held to be unenforceable or in conflict with the law of any jurisdiction, the validity of the remaining sections shall not be affected by such holding. The meaning of that section shall be construed to the extent feasible to render the section enforceable and to give effect to the Parties’ intentions as reflected in the section. If no feasible interpretation would save such section, it is to be severed from the remainder of these Terms of Service, which are to remain in full force and effect. The Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement with you and us with respect to the subject matter set forth herein. The section headings and subheadings contained in these Terms of Service are included for convenience only and shall not limit or otherwise affect these Terms of Service.
20. GOVERNING LAW; DISPUTE RESOLUTION

The costs of arbitration, including administrative and arbitrators’ fees, shall be shared equally by each of us.
