PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES.
If you have any questions concerning these Terms or wish to exercise your rights as described below, please contact Rock-It at [email protected].
1. License to Use the Site
Subject to these Terms, Rock-It hereby grants you a personal, limited, terminable, revocable, non-exclusive, nontransferable, nonsublicenseable license to access and use the Site solely for use in accordance with these Terms.

In order to access certain content, services or features made available through the Site, you may be asked to register and create an account. As part of the registration process, you may be asked to select or submit a username and password. You may also be required to provide Rock-It with certain information about yourself, including some types of personally identifiable information, such as your legal name, phone number, physical address, and email address. You represent that the personal information you provide to Rock-It via the Site is true, valid, complete, and up-to-date in all respects. Should any of the information you provide on the Site change, please login to your account and update such information directly on the Site.
You are responsible for ensuring that your password and account login are kept secret, safe, and secure at all times. You are solely responsible for any and all activities which occur under your account. Rock-It will not be held responsible or liable for any misuse of your account, including in the event that a third party has access to and uses your password and account login in any way. In the event that your username or account login is used without your consent or that you discover any other breach of security, you agree to promptly notify us. We are not responsible for your failure to comply with this clause, or for any delay in shutting down your account after you have notified us.

If you purchase products from Rock-It or make any payments via the Site with your credit card, the credit card information that you submit to Rock-It will be protected by encryption, such as with the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL“) protocol.

10. Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL ROCK-IT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OTHER THAN ACTUAL AND DIRECT DAMAGES PROVEN EITHER IN A COURT OF LAW OR THROUGH ARBITRATION. IN NO EVENT SHALL ROCK-IT’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE PRICE YOU PAID FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE CLAIM. IF ANY PART OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF ROCK-IT AND ITS LICENSORS SHALL NOT EXCEED TEN U.S. DOLLARS ($10).
IN AS MUCH AS PERMITTED BY LAW, AND EXCEPT FOR DAMAGE CAUSED BY WILLFUL INTENT OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE, ROCK-IT AND THEIR AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES AND LICENSORS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, SHAREHOLDERS OR AGENTS OF ANY OF THEM, EXCLUDE ALL LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY AMOUNT OR KIND OF LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT MAY RESULT TO YOU OR A THIRD PARTY (INCLUDING ANY INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE, OR ANY LOSS OF INCOME, PROFITS, GOODWILL OR DATA) IN CONNECTION WITH (A) THE SITE, SITE CONTENT OR THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OBTAINED ON OR THROUGH THE SITE IN ANY WAY OR (B) THE USE, INABILITY TO USE OR THE RESULTS OF USE OF THE SITE, ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO THE SITE OR THE MATERIAL ON SUCH WEBSITES, INCLUDING LOSS OR DAMAGE DUE TO VIRUSES THAT MAY INFECT YOUR COMPUTER EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, DATA OR OTHER PROPERTY ON ACCOUNT OF YOUR ACCESS TO, USE OF OR BROWSING OF THE SITE OR YOUR USE OF ANY SITE CONTENT OR ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO THE SITE; ALL THE FOREGOING REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER OR NOT YOU OR WE HAD BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OR PROBABILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF THE REMEDIES OTHERWISE AVAILABLE FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SITE, SERVICES, OR WITH ANY OF THESE TERMS, OR FEEL WE HAVE BREACHED THESE TERMS, YOUR SOLE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE SITE.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Rock-It, its parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, shareholders, members, employees, agents, affiliates, licensors and suppliers, from and against all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from: (a) your use of and access to the Site, products, and services; (b) your violation of any of these Terms or Rock-It’s Terms and Conditions of Service; (c) your fraud, violation of law, negligence, or willful misconduct; and (d) your violation of any third party rights, including intellectual property or privacy rights. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive the termination or cessation of these Terms and your use of the Site. Rock-It reserves the right, at Rock-It’s own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you hereunder, and you shall cooperate in all reasonable respects in such defense. You may not settle any claim that is referenced or otherwise covered by this Section 12 without the prior written consent of Rock-It.
You and Rock-It agree that any disputes arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of the Site, including disputes arising from or concerning their interpretation, violation, invalidity, non-performance, or termination, which cannot be resolved informally, shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before one (1) arbitrator; provided, however, in the event that the dispute involves an allegation of liability in excess of $250,000 USD, three (3) arbitrators shall be used. Any dispute arising out of these Terms shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual; and an arbitrator must also follow and enforce these Terms, as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Arbitration shall take place in Los Angeles, California, unless Rock-It elects otherwise.
All matters relating to the Site and these Terms and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California without giving effect to its choice or conflict of law provisions or rules. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the California. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Rock-It users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Rock-It user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
You acknowledge and agree that you and Rock-It are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. You further acknowledge and agree that you waive your right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Rock-It otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
In the event this Section 12 is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 12 will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this Section 12 will survive termination of the Terms and your use of the Site.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
13. Operation of the Site and United States Law
The Site is controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting anything else, Rock-It makes no representation that the Site, Site Content, services, products, information, or other materials available on, in, or through the Site is appropriate or available for use outside the United States, and access to them from territories where they are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site from outside the United States do so on their own will and are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.
14. Complaint Policy
If you believe that any content or posting on the Site violates your intellectual property or other rights, please notify Rock-It at the email address set forth above, providing a comprehensive, detailed message setting forth the following information: (a) your name and the name of your company, if any; (b) your contact information, including your email address; (c) the nature and substance of your complaint, the specific rights at issue, and your basis for making the complaint, including the content or posting that is objectionable; and (d) the following statement: “The statements, representations, and assertions made in this message are true, complete, and accurate, and I have the full legal authority to make each and every such statement, representation, and assertion and to make and be granted any demand made in this message.”
These Terms, and Rock-It’s Terms and Conditions of Service, constitute the entire legal agreement between you and Rock-It regarding the Site and govern your use of the Site and any transactions you may have with Rock-It through the Site. These Terms completely replace and supersede any prior agreement or understanding, arrangement, undertaking, or proposal, written or oral, between you and Rock-It regarding these matters. In the event any other rule, code of conduct, or other matter posted on the Site conflicts with these Terms, these Terms shall govern. No oral explanation or oral information given by any party shall alter the interpretation of these Terms. When used herein, the words “includes” and “including” and their syntactical variations shall be deemed followed by the words “without limitation.”
You understand that Rock-It may make changes to these Terms from time to time. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these Terms will be considered your consent to those changes. When these changes are made, Rock-It will make a new copy of the Terms available on the Site. You agree that Rock-It is under no obligation to provide you with notices regarding changes to these Terms. You understand that it is your responsibility to check the Terms regularly for changes.
You agree that any failure or delay by Rock-It to exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy contained in or made available by these Terms (or that Rock-It has the benefit of under any applicable law) will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Rock-It’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Rock-It. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide a matter arising out of these Terms, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from these Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms and the remaining provisions will continue to be valid and enforceable.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that we reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the whole, or any part of, the Site, without notice, and that we will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, to you or any other person or entity for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of any such modifications or discontinuance.
These Terms are binding upon you, your heirs, executors, beneficiaries, successors and assigns and you may not assign these Terms to any other party without our prior written consent, which consent may be withheld in our sole and absolute discretion.
