Except where prohibited by law, under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, will CYC be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the Website, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Governing Law; Dispute Resolution
By visiting or using CYC’s website or by participating in CYC’s online community, except where prohibited, you agree that: (1) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected to your access to the website or participation in CYC’s online community shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by mediation, and if not resolved by mediation, then by binding arbitration under the procedures and supervision of the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation, Institute for Christian Conciliation, or similar faith-based mediation and arbitration group. In the event that the Institute for Christian Conciliation ceases to exist during the course of this Agreement, arbitration under this section shall be conducted according to the rules of the American Arbitration Association; (2) any and all claims, judgments, and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with your access to the website but in no event attorney’s fees; and (3) under no circumstances will you be permitted to obtain awards for and you hereby waive all rights to claim punitive, incidental, and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of this Agreement, or the rights and obligations of you and/or CYC in connection with your access to the website or participation in CYC’s online community, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Texas without regard for conflicts of law doctrine, and all proceedings shall take place in Tarrant County, Texas. You understand that in accordance with this section, you have hereby waived any right to a trial by jury or trial before a judge. If any provision of this Agreement is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision is deemed severable from the Agreement and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
If a dispute may result in an award of monetary damages that could be paid under CYC’s insurance policy, then use of the conciliation, mediation, and arbitration procedure is conditioned on acceptance of the procedure by the liability insurer of CYC and the insurer’s agreement to honor any mediation, conciliation or arbitration award up to any applicable policy limits.
If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; and if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way.
