EPG Media Ltd does not endorse, approve, or sponsor any Third-Party Sites, or any third-party content, advertising, information, materials, products, services, or other items. Furthermore, EPG Media Ltd is not responsible for the quality or delivery of the products or services offered, accessed, obtained by or advertised at such sites.

Dispute ResolutionCertain portions of this Section 8 are deemed to be a "written agreement to arbitrate" pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and EPG Media Ltd agree that we intend that this Section 8 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 8 can only be amended by mutual agreement. 

A. First – Try To Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Service, the Content, your User-Generated Content, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, "Dispute"), or to any of EPG Media Ltd’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an "Excluded Dispute," which includes those actions set forth in Section 8.D), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 8.A. Your notice to us must be sent to: 

By mail: 
General Counsel 
EPG Media Ltd 
15 144-146 Tooting High Street
London SW17 0RT
By e-mail: info@estatepropertyguide.co.uk 

For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, EPG Media Ltd and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or EPG Media Ltd to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and EPG Media Ltd, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable. 

B. Forums For Alternative Dispute Resolution (i) Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 8.A within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this Section 8.B. If we cannot resolve an Excluded Dispute as set forth in Section 8.A within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Excluded Dispute to formal arbitration only if you and EPG Media Ltd consent, in a writing signed by you and an Officer or legal representative of EPG Media Ltd, to have that Excluded Dispute subject to arbitration. In such a case (and only in such a case), that Excluded Dispute will be deemed a "Dispute" for the remainder of this Section 8.B. 
Upon expiration of the applicable sixty-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, by using our Service, you agree that any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against EPG Media Ltd, and any claim that EPG Media Ltd may have against you, arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with these Terms of Service, our Privacy Policy, or any EPG Media Ltd Transactions or Relationships shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration ("Arbitration") administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”) and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the "Applicable Rules"). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is no longer in existence, the Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (the "AAA") instead, and conducted in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at that time (which shall be the “Applicable Rules” in such circumstances). If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness for Consumer Arbitrations in effect which would be applicable to the matter in dispute, EPG Media Ltd agrees to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this Paragraph 8, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the application of subpart 8(B)(iv); and 8F. Furthermore, this Paragraph 8 shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. 
(ii) Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets Section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act. 
(iii) Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and EPG Media Ltd; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission. 
(iv ) Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause . With the exception of subpart 8(F) below, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart 8(F) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor EPG Media Ltd shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction. 
C. Limited Time To File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 8.A) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES – OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED. 
D. Injunctive Relief . The foregoing provisions of this Section 8 will not apply to any legal action taken by EPG Media Ltd to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Service, any Content, your User-Generated Content and/or EPG Media Ltd’s intellectual property rights (including such EPG Media Ltd may claim that may be in dispute), EPG Media Ltd’s operations, and/or EPG Media Ltd's products or services. 
E. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded From Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court, subject to Section 8.G. 
F. No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitration or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. 
G. Federal and State Courts in Los Angeles. Except to the extent that arbitration is required in Section 8.B, and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state or federal court in Los Angeles, California. Accordingly, you and EPG Media Ltd consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters. 
### DISCLAIMER OF REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES 
While EPG Media Ltd uses reasonable efforts to include up to date information on the Site and Service, EPG Media Ltd makes no warranties or representations as to its accuracy, timeliness, reliability, completeness or otherwise. YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. 
EPG MEDIA LTD PROVIDES THE SITE AND SERVICES ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. EPG MEDIA LTD, ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS AND LICENSORS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “EPG Media Ltd PARTIES”) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, EPG Media Ltd DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SITE OR OTHER SERVICE WILL (1) BE UNINTERRUPTED; (2) BE FREE FROM INACCURACIES, ERRORS, VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; (3) MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; OR (4) OPERATE IN THE CONFIGURATION OR WITH THE HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE YOU USE. YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND SERVICES IS SOLELY AT YOUR RISK. 
Some jurisdictions limit or do not allow the disclaimer of implied or other warranties so the above disclaimers may not apply to the extent such jurisdictions’ laws are applicable. 
### LIMITATIONS OF OUR LIABILITY 
IN NO EVENT WILL THE EPG MEDIA LTD PARTIES' AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE AND SERVICE OR THESE TERMS EXCEED (A) THE AMOUNT (IF ANY) PAID BY YOU TO EPG Media Ltd IN THE SIX MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT WHICH GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY; OR (B) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), WHICHEVER IS LESS. 
BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES, EPG MEDIA LTD’S LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE LAW OF SUCH JURISDICTION. IN ADDITION, BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE DISCLAIMER OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, THE DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS PROVISION WILL ONLY APPLY IF AN ARBITRATOR WITH APPLICABLE JURISDICTION FINDS EXCLUSIONS OF DAMAGES OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY TO BE UNCONSCIONABLE. 
### Exclusion of Damages. 
NONE OF THE EPG MEDIA LTD PARTIES WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES RELATING TO LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA OR LOSS OF GOODWILL) OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER THAT RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE OR SERVICES. THIS LIMITATION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND EVEN IF EPG MEDIA LTD HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
