These Terms prevail over any of Buyer's terms and conditions of purchase, regardless whether or when Buyer submitted its  purchase order or such terms.

These Terms may be modified only in a writing which specifically states that it amends these Terms and is signed  by an authorized representative of each party.

Acceptance: All purchase orders are subject to acceptance by Bivo. Unless agreed prior, Bivo will only accept purchase orders via electronic  methods or phone for small quantities.

Quantities: Bivo may, without liability or penalty, make partial shipments of goods to Buyer. Each shipment will constitute a separate sale, and Buyer  shall pay for the units shipped whether such shipment is in whole or partial fulfillment of Buyer's order. If Bivo delivers to Buyer a quantity of goods  of up to 20% more or less than the quantity set forth in the Order Acknowledgment, Buyer shall not be entitled to object to or reject the goods or any  portion thereof by reason of the surplus or shortfall, and shall pay for such goods the price set forth in the Order Acknowledgment adjusted pro rata.

Remedy: If Bivo determines that any goods are Nonconforming Goods, Bivo may, in its sole discretion, (i) replace such Nonconforming Goods, or  (ii) credit or refund the price for such Nonconforming Goods.

Price: Unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, Buyer shall purchase the goods from Bivo at the prices set forth in Bivo's final published price list  in force as of the date of Buyer's purchase order ("Prices"). All Prices are exclusive of all sales, use and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes,  duties and charges of any kind imposed by any governmental authority on any amounts payable by Buyer.

Buyer shall reimburse Bivo for all costs incurred in collecting any  late payments, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees. In addition to all other remedies available under these Terms or at law (which Bivo does  not waive by the exercise of any rights hereunder), Bivo may suspend the delivery of any goods if Buyer fails to pay any amounts when due. Buyer  shall not withhold payment of any amounts due and payable by reason of any set-off of any claim or dispute with Bivo, whether relating to Bivo’s  breach, bankruptcy or otherwise.

If Buyer cancels more than 20% of a Preseason  Order at any time, such order shall no longer be eligible for Preseason Order terms.

Limited Warranty: Except for the limited warranty of conformity to specifications, as set forth above, Bivo makes no warranty whatsoever with  respect to the goods, including any warranty of merchantability, warranty of fitness for a particular purpose, warranty of title or warranty against  infringement of intellectual property rights, whether express or implied by law, course of dealing, course of performance, usage of trade or otherwise.

Limitation of Liability: In no event shall Bivo be liable for any consequential, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or punitive damages, lost profits  or revenues or diminution in value, arising out of or relating to any breach of these terms, whether or not the possibility of such damages has been  disclosed in advance by buyer or could have been reasonably foreseen by buyer, regardless of the legal or equitable theory (contract, tort or otherwise)  upon which the claim is based, and notwithstanding the failure of any agreed or other remedy of its essential purpose. In no event shall Bivo's  aggregate liability arising out of or related to this agreement, whether arising out of or related to breach of contract, tort (including negligence) or  otherwise, exceed the total of the amounts paid to Bivo by Buyer for the goods sold hereunder.

Waiver: No waiver by Bivo of any of the provisions of this Agreement is effective unless expressly set forth in writing and signed by Bivo. No failure  to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege arising from this Agreement operates, or may be construed, as a waiver  thereof. No single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder precludes any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise  of any other right, remedy, power or privilege.

Force Majeure: Bivo shall not be liable or responsible to Buyer, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached this Agreement, for any failure or  delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or  circumstances beyond the reasonable control of Bivo including, without limitation, acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, governmental  actions, war, invasion or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot, or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution,  insurrection, epidemic or pandemic, lockouts, strikes or other labor disputes (whether or not relating to either party's workforce), or restraints or delays affecting  carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown or power outage.

Assignment: Buyer shall not assign any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations under this Agreement without Bivo’s prior written consent.  Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves Buyer of any of its  obligations under this Agreement.

No Third-Party Beneficiaries: This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns  and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any other person or entity any legal or equitable right, benefit or remedy  of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of these Terms.

11. Dispute Resolution.

            Any dispute arising out of these Terms shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration held in Portland, Oregon pursuant to the rules of the Arbitration Service of Portland (“ASP”). Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. The arbitrator may award the same relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual, and an arbitrator must enforce the these Terms. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate may be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction.

            The arbitrator shall apply the laws of the State of Oregon and decide all claims in accordance therewith, without regard to conflicts of law principles. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the ASP’s rules. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this agreement to arbitrate shall remain in force, and an enforceable substitute term shall replace the offending provision that comes closest to effectuating the original intent.

            You may reject this agreement to arbitrate by mailing Bivo a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”) at the address listed on the Site. The Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than thirty days after the date you accept these Terms by accessing or using the Site for the first time. The Opt-Out Notice must include your name, address (including street number and address, city, state, and zip code), phone number, and, if applicable, the email address you used to log in to the Bivo account to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply.

            In the event you provide Bivo with an effective Opt-Out Notice, or if this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable for any reason, you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the federal and state courts located in Multnomah County, Oregon for all claims of any type arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Site. Oregon law shall govern all claims, without regard to choice of law principles. You agree that any claim brought or attempted to be brought in any court or tribunal outside of Multnomah County, Oregon, shall be promptly dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, improper venue, or both.

            Before commencing any legal proceeding against Bivo (including arbitration or, if an effective Opt-Out Notice has been served or if the claim is otherwise deemed inarbitrable for any reason, in a court of competent jurisdiction), you must provide Bivo with a written notice of claim that states in detail the alleged nature and basis for your claim. Notice must be mailed by first class mail, return receipt requested, to the address listed on the Site. All claims of any type must be commenced, if at all, within 180 days of the event that gave rise to the claim. You agree that failure to strictly comply with the provisions of this section shall result in dismissal of your claim(s).

12. Miscellaneous.

            These Terms, including the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between you and Bivo and govern your use of the Site, Services and any transactions you may have with Bivo through the Site and completely replaces and supersedes any prior agreements between you and Bivo related to the subject matter of these Terms. In the event any other information posted on the Site conflicts with the terms of these Terms, these Terms shall govern. No oralstatements made by any party shall alter these Terms or their interpretation.

            Notwithstanding the foregoing, you understand that Bivo may make changes to these Terms from time to time in its sole discretion. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these Terms will be considered your consent to those changes. When changes are made, Bivo will update the Terms on the Site. Bivo is not required to provide you with notices regarding changes to the Terms. Bivo’s failure to exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy contained in these Terms or otherwise available at law or in equity, shall not constitute a waiver of any kind.

            If, in a proceeding that involves claims arising under or related to these terms, an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be severed and replaced by a substitute term that is enforceable and that most closely effectuates the stricken term’s intent, and the remainder of these Terms shall remain valid and enforceable as though the severed provision had never been included.

            The Site is controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting these terms in any other respect, Bivo makes no representation that the Site, Contents, or Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Accessing or using this Site from any territory where such use is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site from outside the United States are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.

            Bivo reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time. Please check back frequently in order to see changes. Your use of the Site constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time. If you are under thirteen years old, are not competent to enter this agreement, or if you disagree with, do not understand, or object to any of the terms contained in this Privacy Policy, you must immediately discontinue your use of this Site.

1. Collection of Personal Information from Site Users.

            (a)        Bivo and/or its third-party service providers may collect and/or track the following types of information from visitors to the Site, including personally identifiable information: (1) the home server domain names, e-mail addresses, type of computer, and type of Web browser of visitors to the Site; (2) the e-mail addresses of visitors that communicate with Bivo or the Site via e-mail, (3) information knowingly provided by the visitor in online forms, registration forms and surveys, (including name, address, e-mail and other personal profile data); (4) aggregate and user-specific information regarding page views.

            (b)       Bivo may collect additional personally identifiable information from visitors who create an account or make a purchase(s) through the site, including: (1) name; (2) shipping and billing addresses; (3) phone number; (4) e-mail address; (5) credit card number; (6) country of residence; (7) age; and (8) gender. This information may be used for billing purposes, to fulfill your order(s), to contact or communicate with you regarding your purchase through or use of the Site, and for Bivo’s internal marketing purposes.

            (c)        Bivo may place Internet “cookies” on visitors’ hard drives. Internet cookies save data about individual visitors, such as the visitor’s name, password, username, screen preferences, the pages of a site viewed by the visitor, and the advertisements viewed or clicked by the visitor.  When the visitor revisits the Site, Bivo may recognize the visitor by the Internet cookie and customize the visitor’s experience accordingly. Visitors may decline Internet cookies, if any, by using the appropriate feature of their Web client software, if available; however, this may impair certain features of the Site.

2. Disclosure of Personal Data Collected.

            Bivo may disclose personally identifiable information about you to Third Parties as follows:

            (a)        To Bivo’s agents and advisors (such as our accountants or attorneys). We only disclose the personal information necessary for them to provide their services to you or to us, and only under strict confidentiality restrictions.

            (b)       As Bivo believes necessary to: (1) comply with law (including court and government orders, and civil subpoenas); (2) enforce or apply Bivo’s Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or (3) protect the rights, property, or safety of Bivo, our users, or others.

            (c)        If you partake (or we reasonably suspect that you are partaking) in any illegal or potentially illegal activity.  We may disclose personal information even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, to the extent we feel is necessary to inform and cooperate with law enforcement agencies or other appropriate authorities.

            (d)       In aggregated form, i.e., information about multiple users collectively without identifying any individual user, such as the total number of visitors to a particular section in a given week.

            (e)        As necessary to fulfill you purchase order(s).

            (f)        In any manner not stated above for which you give Bivo or its agents express consent.

3. Third Party Sites.

            The Site may contain links to other websites. Bivo is not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of these other websites. We encourage you to review the privacy policy statements of those sites.

4. Preserving the Privacy of Children.

            Bivo does not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. In fact, children under 13 are not authorized to use the Site. We are not responsible for monitoring the age of Site users. However, if Bivo becomes aware that we have inadvertently collected personally identifiable information from a person who is under the age of thirteen, we will remove that child’s personally identifiable information from our files.

5. Opt-Out Right.

            Visitors to the Site may opt-out of having their personal information collected by Bivo or used by Bivo for secondary purposes, by contacting Bivo via email or via postal mail or telephone at the address and phone number on the Site and requesting that their personal information not be collected.

6. Governing Law.

            This Privacy Policy and the privacy practices of Bivo are subject exclusively to the laws of the State of Oregon within the United States of America. Bivo makes no representation that this Privacy Policy and such practices comply with the laws of any other country. Visitors who use the Site and reside outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. If you reside outside of the United States, by using the Site, you consent to the transfer and use of your information outside your country.

7. Disclaimer.

            We cannot guarantee that your Personal Information will never be compromised. No transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Further, while we employ reasonable measures to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee or warrant that unauthorized third parties will not defeat those measures or use non-public Personal Information for improper purposes. Nevertheless, we value your business and have adopted this Privacy Policy, and endeavor to respect your privacy and to keep your Personal Information confidential.

8. Severability.

            The provisions of this Privacy Policy are independent of each other, and the invalidity or unenforceability of any term, clause, or provision hereof shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other term, clause, or provision, and such invalid or unenforceable term, clause, or provision shall be deemed to be severed from this Privacy Policy and replaced with a valid and enforceable substitute term that most closely effects the severed term’s original intent.

9. Incorporation of Terms and Conditions.

            The terms of this Privacy Policy supplement the Terms and Conditions set forth above, which are also incorporated in full herein. Any claims arising from or related to an alleged violation of this Privacy Policy by Bivo shall be subject to the notice, limitation of liability, dispute resolution (including mandatory arbitration), indemnity, forum selection, and choice of law provisions set forth in the Terms and Conditions, all of which are specifically incorporated herein.
