Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.
You agree to defend and indemnify Kids2 and each of its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, partners, investors, employees, successors and assigns from and against any claims, causes of action, demands, recoveries, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other costs or expenses of any kind or nature, including but not limited to reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising from:

You agree that Kids2, in its sole discretion, may terminate or suspend your use or access to the Website, Interactive Areas, Submissions, Content, information, and services at any time and for any or no reason, in its sole discretion, and without prior notification, even if access and use continues to be allowed to others. Upon such suspension or termination, you must immediately (a) discontinue use of the Website, and (b) destroy any copies you have made of any portion of Submissions.

Third Party Services and Content
The Website may contain links to websites, pages, accounts or other electronic media owned or controlled by parties other than Kids2. Such links are provided for your reference and convenience only. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy or other practices of such websites. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from the Website or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. Our inclusion of links to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators. In some cases you may be asked by a third party site to link your profile on Kids2 to a profile on another third party site. Choosing to do so is purely optional, and the decision to allow this information to be linked can be disabled (with the third party site) at any time.
No Medical Advice
The Sites may contain articles, blogs, questions and answers, frequently asked questions or other postings (each an "Article") regarding health care, medicine, nutrition and similar topics. All such information is general in nature and should not substitute for, or be used instead of, a clinical or therapeutic relationship with a health care professional who is fully familiar with the specifics of your case. Such Articles may assist you in your personal, general research but none of it constitutes the practice of medicine or any other health care profession. Nothing in any Article is intended as a recommendation or endorsement of any specific tests, products, procedures, healthcare provider, opinions or other information that may be mentioned on our Sites. Email correspondence with any author of an Article (even if the author is a physician), will not, in and of itself, create a physician/patient relationship or cause such author to create or retain any medical records about you, monitor your care or communicate with your health care provider. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you have regarding your medical care. If you suspect that you may have a medical condition, or are seeking medical advice or treatment, we recommend that you consult a qualified health professional as soon as possible. You should be aware of the general risks of transmitting information over the Internet, which may not use encryption. You should therefore not share any personal medical information that you would wish to be held confidential in a physician/patient or similar clinical relationship. To the maximum extent permitted by law, neither Kids2 nor any authors of any Articles found on our Sites shall have any liability to you for any loss, damage or injury of any kind which you may claim to have incurred as a result of your reliance on any Article content.
Copyright and Trademark Notices
All trademarks, trade names, logos, images, typefaces, graphics, service marks and trade dress displayed on the Sites (collectively, the “Marks”) are the property of Kids2 or its licensors, content providers or other third parties. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions or on the Sites shall be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any Mark without the prior written consent of Kids2 or the owner of the Mark. In addition, the look and feel of the Website, including all page headers, custom graphics, button icons and scripts, is the service mark, trademark and/or trade dress of Kids2 and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of Kids2. All other trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned in the Website are the property of their respective owners. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise, does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by Kids2.
“Baby Einstein”, "Bright Starts", "Ingenuity", "Comfort & Harmony", "Oball", "Taggies", "Kids II" and all associated logos are trademarks of Kids II, Inc. and its affiliates. All rights reserved.
“Einstein” and “Albert Einstein” are trademarks of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. All Rights Reserved.
If you are aware of an infringement of either your brand or our brand, please let Kids2 know by contacting us via phone or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You agree to use the Website in strict compliance with all applicable laws, rules, rulings and regulations and in a fashion that does not, in the sole judgment of Kids2, negatively reflect on the goodwill or reputation of Kids2 and shall take no actions that would cause Kids2 to be in violation of any laws, rules, rulings or regulations applicable to Kids2.
Kids2 and the Website are based in the United States. Kids2 controls and operates this Website through its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America and makes no representation that these materials are appropriate or available for use in other locations. If you use this Website from other locations, you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. This Website may describe products that are not available worldwide. If any provision of these terms or conditions is held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable portion shall be construed in accordance with applicable law to the greatest extent possible and the remainder of the provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
Kids2 reserves the right to investigate any suspected breaches of its Website security or Terms and Conditions and involve law enforcement authorities in investigating any such matters and prosecute violators to the full extent of the law.
These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Kids II regarding your use of this Site. The failure of Kids II to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.
Arbitration Agreement – Legal Disputes
In the event that our customer service team is unable to resolve your concern, by using this Site you unconditionally agree that all claims relating to your access or use of our Site, including all disputes arising out of, or related to, any products or services purchased from Kids II through our Site, will be resolved entirely through binding individual arbitration, rather than in court. You may also assert individual claims in small claims court if your claims otherwise qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
Note: There is no judge or jury in arbitration, no class actions, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. An arbitrator, however, can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages, and must follow these Terms as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you may send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent: Kids II, Inc., Attn: General Counsel, 3333 Piedmont Rd, Suite 1800, Atlanta, GA 30305. You agree that the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), adr.org, 1.800.778.7879. You can contact AAA to find out more information on how to commence an arbitration proceeding. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's applicable rules. Kids2 may seek attorney’s fees and costs in arbitration. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree to bring any dispute in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not on a class, consolidated, representative or collective action basis. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial or to participate in a class action against the other. In addition, we both agree that we each may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA OR JAMS RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR KIDS II WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
Class Action Waiver
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
The law applicable to the interpretation and construction of these Terms and any transaction (including purchases made on this Site) using or related to the Site, shall be the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal laws and the laws of the State of Georgia, USA, without regard to the principles of conflict of laws, but subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and other federal law relating to the arbitrability of claims. You agree that all matters relating to access to or use of the Site, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of the United States and by the State of Georgia.
Exclusive Venue for Litigation
Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia for any litigation other than small claims court actions, and irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction in Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia for any litigation and hereby waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction of any court in such jurisdiction over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) these Terms or the Site and (b) any acts or omissions of Kids II in connection with these Terms and conditions or the Site.
