Zola uses Google Maps Geocoding API. By using the Website, you agree to be bound by Google's Terms of Service located at: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/.

You are responsible for obtaining access to the Website and the Services, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Website and the Services. You may not bypass any measures that have been implemented to prevent, restrict or secure access to the Website. Any unauthorized access to the Website or the Services by you (including any such access or use that involves in any way an account you may establish on the Website or any device you may use to access the Website or the Services) shall terminate the permission or license granted to you by Zola. Zola neither warrants nor represents that your use of the Content available on the Website or through the Services will not infringe, misappropriate or otherwise violate the rights of third parties. Termination of your access or use will not waive or affect any other right or relief to which Zola may be entitled, at law or in equity.

Registration for an account on the Website requires you to (i) indicate agreement to these Terms of Use, (ii) provide contact information and identification details and (iii) submit any other form of authentication required as part of the registration process, in Zola's sole discretion. If someone legally authorized to act on your behalf (“Authorized Agent”) registers for a Zola account on your behalf, Zola may require written proof of such authorization and verification of identity directly from you. You agree to accept full responsibility for all activities that occur under your account and password, even if such actions are undertaken by your Authorized Agent or other third party. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and for restricting access to your account. If you have any reason to believe or become aware of any loss, theft or unauthorized use of your login credentials or the Website, you will notify Zola immediately. Zola shall be entitled to assume that any communications we receive from you via email, telephone/text or other address, or communications that are associated with your login credentials or your account on the Website, have been made by you or your Authorized Agent unless we receive notice indicating otherwise.

PURCHASES

If you purchase a gift on the Website, you are purchasing “Zola Stored Value” in the amount of the purchase price of the item selected plus any applicable taxes and charges (including, without limitation, shipping and handling charges). The registered Zola recipient uses that Zola Stored Value to purchase the item you selected from Zola at the date the recipient designates for shipment of the item. Zola will honor the Zola Stored Value for the item you have selected as payment in full no matter the price of the item at the time of shipping. For example, if you select a set of dishes costing $69.95 including all taxes and charges, when the registered Zola recipient selects a shipping date, the set of dishes is then purchased for $69.95 and shipped no matter what the cost of the item is at that time. The registered Zola recipient will not be charged more for that item if the price has increased. The registered Zola recipient may elect to retain your gift as Zola Stored Value in the amount you paid. They may use that Zola Stored Value to purchase other items on Zola. Unredeemed Zola Stored Value may be escheated in accordance with applicable state law.

Zola Stored Value never expires and can be used for any physical product, third-party gift card or experience that Zola sells. Zola Stored Value cannot be redeemed or used for cash, honeymoon funds or other cash gifts, digital Zola gift cards, Vendor Credits or Vendor Plans, nor can it be applied towards items purchased from another website. In addition, Zola Stored Value cannot be retroactively applied to past orders. From time to time, Zola may make available promotional codes or coupons for marketing, goodwill, referrals or other promotional purposes. These codes or coupons expire on the date disclosed at the time the code or coupon is issued and may be subject to additional terms and conditions provided by Zola in connection with such codes or coupons.

“Vendor Credits” and “Vendor Plans” that are purchased on the Website, as available, may be applied towards the purchase of certain products and services we provide to Vendors. Vendor Credits and Vendor Plans cannot be applied or otherwise used for cash, honeymoon funds or other cash gifts, Zola Stored Value, physical products, third-party gift cards or experiences that Zola sells or digital Zola gift cards, nor can they be applied towards items purchased from another website. Our Vendor Plans Terms and Conditions govern your receipt, purchase and use of Vendor Credits and Vendor Plans. By purchasing, receiving or using Vendor Credits or Vendor Plans, you agree to be bound by the Vendor Plans Terms and Conditions, without modification, and you represent that you have read and understood them all.

Zola may, in its sole discretion, choose to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances. This may occur, for example, when the product or service you wish to purchase is out of stock or has been mispriced, we suspect the request is fraudulent, or in other circumstances as Zola deems appropriate, in each case in its sole discretion. Zola also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity to process your order. Zola either will not charge you or will refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.

Zola accepts returns on certain merchandise on a case-by-case basis. For Zola's Return Policy, which may change from time to time, please see https://www.zola.com/returns. Zola attempts to provide accurate descriptions of products and services on the Website. Zola does not represent or warrant, however, that such descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. If a product or service offered on the Website is not as described, your sole remedy is to return the item, as specified in these Terms of Use and Zola's Return Policy.

Zola strives to provide accurate information regarding the products and services available on the Website. Despite these efforts, a small number of items on the Website may be mispriced, described inaccurately or unavailable, and we may experience delays in updating information on the Website and in our advertising. As a result, we cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information, including prices, product images, specifications, availability and services. Zola reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change or update the information on the Website and to correct errors, inaccuracies or omissions at any time without prior notice, including any error in the stated retail price of a product or service. We also reserve the right to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a product or service whose price was incorrectly posted on the Website as a result of an error. If this occurs, Zola will notify you by email.

For Zola's shipping policies, which may change from time to time, please see https:// zola.com/shipping/ and https://baby.zola.com/shipping, as applicable (collectively, the “Zola Shipping Policies,” and each, a “Zola Shipping Policy”). By purchasing an item on the Website or registering for an item that will be purchased on the Website and shipped to you, you agree to the applicable Zola Shipping Policy, as well as Zola’s Return Policy, available at https://zola.com/returns/. Zola does not sell, offer to sell or solicit sales of alcohol. The Website may enable you to search for and purchase third-party gift cards, credits or subscriptions that may be redeemed towards the purchase of alcohol or other products available for sale by licensed alcohol retailers or other marketplaces via the Website. You must be at least 21 years of age to make any such purchases through the Website. Please refer to the applicable sale page or product detail page on the Website for more information on applicable terms and conditions related to the purchase of such third-party gift cards, credits or subscriptions, including any state restrictions on purchase or shipping. Taxes collected are collected on behalf of the seller of record.

Furthermore, you will not access the Website to obtain a list of users of the Website or access or use any secure or non-public areas of the Website without authorization or frame or link to the Website. Zola does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any Content posted by other users or endorse any opinions expressed by users.

You acknowledge that any reliance on Content posted by other users will be at your own risk. Zola does not screen communications in advance and is not responsible for screening or monitoring any Content posted by users. Zola reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to remove Content, or any portion thereof, for any reason whatsoever in its sole discretion at any time without notice, including for violating these Terms of Use or applicable Regulations.

ZOLA PLANNING TOOLS

In addition to Zola's registry services, if you have registered an account on the Website, you may have access to Zola's planning tools for your personal, non-commercial use. You may register for an account to access Zola's planning tools separately without including a Zola registry. Use of Zola's planning tools for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited. This free service allows you to create and manage your guest list, create a personalized website on Zola.com, create and manage a checklist of things to do, connect with and make inquiries of Vendors, and take advantage of certain other features and functions as may be made available from time to time. Information you upload to any Zola planning tool is not encrypted or otherwise secured.

Using the guest list feature, you can upload contact information for your guests, including a name, address, email and telephone number for each guest. You can request that Zola send guests that you select a pre-written email or text message requesting that the guest send you his/her/their contact information or reminding the guest of your upcoming event. Zola will be the sender of the email or text message which will identify you as requesting the contact information or issuing the reminder. You select the recipients and determine when to send the email or text message, but you may not be able to edit the pre-written email or text message text. You can also request that Zola send guests that you select an email with a short message that you compose. The email will identify that it is coming from you, but Zola will be the sender of the email. The guest list feature also allows you to track the RSVPs from each guest. By using this feature and uploading guest information you represent and warrant that you have the permission and consent of that individual to provide the information to Zola and that Zola has permission to send emails and/or text messages to the individual on your behalf at your request. Guests no longer wishing to receive such messages can opt out of receiving further messages from Zola at any time by following the instructions provided. If you do not have permission to send messages to a guest or if you have reason to believe that a guest no longer wishes to receive such messages, you agree not to send such messages to them through Zola's Services. You also represent and warrant to Zola that you and each person you have instructed us to message understands that each recipient is responsible for the costs of any message charges assessed by his/her/their mobile carrier.

Email or text messages may be limited in size by Zola. To the extent that you compose or edit an email or text message, such email or text message shall not contain any content that is commercial in nature or that violates these Terms of Use or applicable Regulations, including without limitation the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), and all such emails and text messages shall be considered “User Submissions” under these Terms of Use. You are responsible for complying with the TCPA, all regulations promulgated under the TCPA, and with any other applicable Regulations. You may not use the Services to send messages to telephone numbers that may not legally receive such messages under the TCPA and/or other applicable Regulations.

Zola's planning tools include a virtual events feature (“Zola Virtual Events Platform”) that allows you to host a virtual event on your personalized website through an integration with designated third-party providers of virtual events. Please review our Zola Virtual Events Terms of Use, which govern use of the Zola Virtual Events Platform. The Zola Virtual Events Terms of Use will provide you with additional information regarding your Virtual Event, including the integration with your applicable third-party provider account. By accessing or using the Zola Virtual Events Platform, you agree to be bound by the Zola Virtual Events Terms of Use, without modification, and you represent that you have read and understood them all.

Zola's Vendor Marketplace allows registered users to connect with certain Vendors or otherwise facilitate communications between you and such Vendors based on your User Submissions. You may direct Limited Audience User Submissions to Vendors with whom you have connected or to other Vendors on the Website to inquire as to such Vendors' availability, pricing, and other details of such products or services that Vendors may offer.

PERSONALIZED WEBSITE SUBMISSIONS

Zola may allow users to create personalized websites where they can post photographs or videos of, and information about, their weddings and/or events to the Website. All such User Submissions must comply with these Terms of Use, including without limitation the section entitled “User Submissions”. Content posted onto personalized websites hosted on Zola may be available to the general public and may be searchable by other users.

VENDORS

Zola may allow Vendors to post profiles on the Website (“Vendor Profiles”). As a Zola Vendor, you agree and acknowledge that Vendor Profiles constitute User Submissions. Vendors are responsible for providing accurate and current information in their Vendor Profiles. By posting User Submissions, each Vendor acknowledges and agrees that the User Submissions are subject to and will comply with these Terms of Use, including without limitation the section entitled “User Submissions”. By joining Vendor Marketplace as a Zola Vendor, you agree that at least one user of your storefront will receive important notifications regarding your Vendor account via email or text message, including alerts that you've received inquiries from users interested in your services, reminders when those inquiries are about to expire and reminders when your Vendor Credits or Vendor Plans are about to expire, if applicable. As a Vendor, you also agree not to engage in any tactics, or direct or encourage others to engage in any tactics, that attempt to circumvent Vendor Marketplace or any related Services, including by encouraging or inducing Zola users to make connections with you or others outside of Vendor Marketplace (including by making contact information available to Zola users through the use of text, photos or other images) or otherwise inducing Zola users to subvert Vendor Marketplace or other related Services.

Vendors may identify other vendors (whether Vendors with Vendor Profiles or vendors without Zola accounts) as preferred (“Preferred Vendor”) or required (“Required Vendor”) as part of their User Submissions, including on their Vendor Profiles. By linking to and publicly displaying a Preferred Vendor's or a Required Vendor's Vendor Profile, Vendor represents that they have obtained such Preferred Vendor's or Required Vendor's consent to do so. Such Preferred Vendors and/or Required Vendors with respect to any given Vendor are referred to as a “Vendor Network.” Additionally, if a user indicates through the Website or other Services, including through Limited Audience User Submissions, that it has selected a particular Vendor, then such Vendor's relationship with such user may be made publicly available or available to others.

Vendors may use the on-platform messaging feature on Zola's Vendor Marketplace (“VM Messaging”) to send and receive messages, attachments, Vendor Documents and other materials (collectively, “Message Materials”) that are relevant and proper to Vendor Marketplace. Vendors are responsible for all Message Materials they send and/or upload via VM Messaging, and for the consequences of sending and/or uploading such Message Materials, including the legality, reliability and appropriateness of such Message Materials. As used herein, “Vendor Documents” refers to the document(s) that a Vendor can upload to their dedicated Vendor storage area.

As a Vendor, you agree not to share or request payment information (including credit or debit card information or account numbers) or other Personal Information via VM Messaging. You acknowledge and agree that Zola may set certain limits on the file or message size of any Message Materials and delete any Message Materials (including message attachments uploaded or attached by such Vendor) after a certain period of time, in each case, in Zola's sole discretion.

If you are a Vendor or if you interact with a Vendor, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) Zola does not and will not endorse any Vendor or any such Vendor's products or services (whether or not we connect or otherwise facilitate communications between such Vendor and other Zola users); (ii) Zola is not responsible for assisting Vendors and other Zola users in reaching an agreement (which includes agreements between Vendors); (iii) Zola is not responsible for assisting Vendors in providing products and services to other Zola users; (iv) while all Zola users are required to give us accurate information about themselves, Zola cannot and will not verify this information; (v) any transaction a Vendor enters into with another Zola user is strictly between such Vendor and the other Zola user, and Zola is not a party to such transaction (whether or not we connect or otherwise facilitate communications between such Vendor and such other Zola user, and whether or not we facilitate a Vendor's creation or management of their respective Vendor Network); (vi) Zola makes no guarantees or promises with respect to successful transactions between Vendors and other Zola users (including couples, guests, Vendors, and/or other users); and (vii) any dispute a Zola user may have with another Zola user (including a Zola user that is a Vendor) is between those Zola users, and we will not be a party to that dispute. If you are a Vendor, you agree that any contact information provided to you is solely to facilitate communications with prospective clients, and you may not use the user’s contact information for any other purpose, including for purposes of adding to marketing lists or sending automated messages (such as bulk email, SMS, robocalls, robotexts), or to spam the user through any means. Vendors are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable Regulations and for all taxes and payments which may be applicable to their respective products or services and their communication with other Zola users. If you are a Vendor, you agree that you are solely responsible for your products and services and agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Zola, its affiliates its and their respective officers, subsidiaries, successors, assigns, directors, officers, agents, service providers, suppliers and employees (the “Zola Parties”) from any and all claims, actions, suits, losses, demands, damages, obligations, liabilities, costs, debt and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) (“Claims”) relating to or arising from your acts, omissions, products, services and communication with other Zola users, including any violation of any Regulations, and other taxes and payments which may be applicable to your products and services.

REVIEWS

Zola may permit users to submit reviews of Vendors via email, on Vendor Profiles or other areas of the Website or through such other means as are provided by Zola ("Vendor Reviews"). Please review our Vendor Review Terms and Conditions, which govern your submission of Vendor Reviews. The Vendor Review Terms and Conditions are governed by, and are hereby incorporated by reference into, these Terms of Use. By submitting a Vendor Review (including submitting a response to a Vendor Review submitted by another user), you agree to be bound by the Vendor Review Terms and Conditions, without modification, and you represent that you have read and understood them all.

Zola may also permit users to submit ratings and reviews of products they have purchased on our Website (“R&R User Submissions”) as part of the Customer Ratings and Reviews and/or Questions and Answers service offered by Zola (“Review Services”). Please review our Ratings & Reviews Terms and Conditions, which govern your use of, and conduct associated with, the Review Services. Our Ratings & Reviews Terms and Conditions will provide you with important information regarding the R&R User Submission process and guidelines. By submitting an R&R User Submission, you agree to be bound by the Ratings & Reviews Terms and Conditions, without modification, and you represent that you have read and understood them all.

NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY

Zola prohibits discrimination by Vendors, Content Owners or other licensors against couples, guests, visitors, users, or any other party (“Protected Class”) on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, physical characteristic, disability, marital status, family status or composition, pregnancy status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, political affiliation, veteran or citizenship status, age, or any other characteristic protected under applicable federal, regional, state, or local law (“Protected Characteristic”). Such discrimination includes, but is not limited to, doing any of the following: (i) refusing to provide products or services to, or accept products or services from, a member of any Protected Class on the basis of a Protected Characteristic; (ii) submitting discriminatory content on the Website or through the Services; (iii) imposing any different terms or conditions upon a member of any Protected Class on the basis of a Protected Characteristic; or (iv) any other conduct that improperly takes into account any Protected Characteristic. Zola will take steps, in its sole discretion, to enforce this policy, up to and including the suspension or removal from the Website and deactivation of the account of anyone who violates this policy. In addition, Vendors should make every effort to be welcoming to users of all backgrounds and shall comply with the Zola Vendor Pledge. Vendors who, in Zola's sole discretion, demonstrate a pattern of refusing to provide products or services to members of a Protected Class undermine the strength of our community and may be suspended or removed from the Website and/or have their account deactivated, in each case, in Zola's sole discretion. If you experience discrimination from any couple, guest, Vendor, Zola employee, licensor, visitor, or user of the Website or the Services, please contact weddingvendors@zola.com, with the subject “Non-Discrimination Policy”, so we can investigate and take appropriate measures.

NOTIFICATION OF CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

Zola respects the intellectual property rights of others. Accordingly, if you are a copyright owner or an Authorized Agent thereof and believe that any user Content or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3) for further detail): (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit Zola to locate the material; (iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit Zola to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address; (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If a user believes the applicable material was removed as a result of a mistake or misidentification (including because they do in fact have the proper authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent or pursuant to the law to upload and use such material in their Content), such user may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to Zola's Copyright Agent: (a) physical or electronic signature of the user; (b) identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled; (c) a statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; (d) the user's name, address, telephone number, and email address and (e) a statement that such user consents to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within New York, New York and a statement that such user will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If a valid counter-notice is received by our Copyright Agent, we may restore access to the material after no less than ten (10) and no more than fourteen (14) business days. We will not restore access to the material if the original notice sender informs us that it has filed a court action against the user.

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable Regulations, we have adopted a policy of deactivating, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, the accounts of users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. We may also, in our sole discretion, limit access to the Website or the Services and/or deactivate the accounts of any users who infringe, misappropriate or otherwise violate any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.

Zola's designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is: copyright@zola.com or Zola, Inc., 7WTC, 250 Greenwich St., 39th Floor, New York, NY 10007, Attention: DMCA Complaint. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, your DMCA notice may not be processed. Please provide Zola with a separate notice each time you wish to report alleged acts of infringement.

FORCE MAJEURE

Zola shall be excused from performance under these Terms of Use to the extent it is prevented from or delayed from performing, in whole or in part, as a result of an event or series of events caused by or resulting from (i) weather conditions or other elements of nature or acts of God, (ii) acts of war, acts of terrorism, insurrection, riots, civil disorders or rebellion, (iii) pandemics, quarantines or embargoes, (iv) labor strikes, or (v) other causes beyond the reasonable control of Zola. In the event that Zola is temporarily unable to ship to you a purchased item because of such an event, Zola will give you the option of deferring shipment or receiving a refund of your charges.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION / CLASS ACTION WAIVER

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH ZOLA AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

Certain portions of this Section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Zola agree that Zola intends that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable Regulations, you and Zola agree that any controversy, allegation, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, the Website, or the Services, including but not limited to claims for indemnification, contribution, or cross-claims in a pending action involving one or more third parties (collectively, a “Dispute”) – excluding Disputes in which you or Zola seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property – shall be finally and exclusively resolved individually by final and binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, as amended and in effect at the time arbitration is initiated (the “AAA Rules”). The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org, or by calling (800) 778-7879, and are hereby incorporated by reference.

You and Zola further agree to the following with respect to the arbitration of any Dispute hereunder: (a) any claim must be brought in your individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding; (b) the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding and may not award class-wide relief; (c) the arbitration will be held at a location in your hometown area unless you and we both agree to another location or telephonic arbitration; (d) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (e) each party will pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules, but we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to assume responsibility for any or all of the fees and costs of the arbitration; (f) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (g) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by applicable Regulations or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (h) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are expressly permitted by applicable Regulations; and (i) each party will pay its own attorneys' fees and expenses, unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses and the arbitrator awards such attorneys' fees and expenses to the prevailing party, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable Regulations.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE REGULATIONS, YOU AGREE THAT (I) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER; (II) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; AND (III) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR ANY OTHER PERSONS.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE REGULATIONS, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND UNDERSTAND THAT, ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT. THE SCOPE OF THIS WAIVER IS INTENDED TO BE ALL-ENCOMPASSING OF ANY AND ALL DISPUTES THAT MAY BE FILED IN ANY COURT AND THAT RELATE TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THESE TERMS OF USE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CONTRACT CLAIMS, TORT CLAIMS, AND ALL OTHER COMMON LAW AND STATUTORY CLAIMS.

You may be subject to additional terms and conditions that are applicable to certain parts of the Website or certain Services. If any portion of these Terms of Use are held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable portion shall be construed in accordance with applicable Regulations to the greatest extent possible and the remainder of the provisions shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Use will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. The failure of Zola to act with respect to a breach of these Terms of Use by you or others does not waive Zola's right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Zola does not guarantee that it will take action against all breaches of these Terms of Use. Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms of Use, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms of Use. You may not assign these Terms of Use by operation of law or otherwise without the prior written consent of Zola, which may be withheld at Zola's sole discretion.
