4.1 Except when required by law, CinemaStock shall be under no obligation to issue refunds under any circumstances. In the event that CinemaStock determines that you are entitled to a refund of all or part of the fees you paid, such refund shall be made using the payment method originally used by you to make your purchase.

4.4 Arbitration - All controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or
causes of action between CinemaStock and you, including disputes arising
shall exclusively be settled through binding arbitration. Arbitration shall be
subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not state arbitration law. The
arbitration shall be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial
experience in resolving similar disputes. The matter may be arbitrated either by
JAMS or the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as mutually agreed upon by
the parties or selected by the party filing the claim. As modified by these
arbitration shall be subject to the then current rules of JAMS or AAA (whichever
is arbitrating the dispute), for commercial arbitration and, if the arbitrator
deems it appropriate, consumer disputes. You are thus GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO
TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that may be taken to
small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and
NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration
procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT.
Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to
VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and CinemaStock must abide by the following rules: (a) at your election, any in-person arbitration hearing may take place in the federal judicial district of your residence; (b) if your claim is for $10,000 or less, instead of an in-person hearing, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents or through a telephonic hearing; (c) the arbitrator’s ruling is binding and not merely advisory; (d) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR CINEMASTOCK MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (e) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, (f) THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (g) CinemaStock will pay the arbitration costs as required by the rules of JAMS or AAA (depending upon which is arbitrating the dispute), and in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, CinemaStock will pay as much of your arbitration filing and hearing fees as the arbitrator deems is necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (h) the arbitrator may award any damages or other relief or remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (i) each side pays his, her or its own attorneys’ fees and costs unless the claim(s) at-issue permit the prevailing party to be paid its fees’ and litigation costs, and in such instance any fees’ and costs awarded by the arbitrator shall be determined by applicable law, statute, regulation, or case law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or CinemaStock may bring an individual action in small claims court. Further, claims of infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in the State of Nevada. With the exception of subparts (d) - (f) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, 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, or illegal provision were not contained. If, however, subparts (d) - (f) are found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor CinemaStock shall be entitled to arbitration. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable, or in the event both AAA and JAMS refuse to arbitrate the Dispute, all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action between CinemaStock and you shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in the State of Nevada.
For more information on AAA, its rules and procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.

In the event that you do not have such authority, you agree that you will be personally liable to CinemaStock for any breaches of the terms of these TOS.
4.5 The number of media files downloads available to you is determined by the product you purchase. For the purposes of these TOS, a month is defined as thirty (30) consecutive days beginning on and including the date that you purchase your product; a year is defined as three hundred sixty five (365) consecutive days beginning on and including the date that you purchase your product.
4.6 If any individual term of these TOS is found to be invalid or unenforceable by any legal or regulatory body of competent jurisdiction, such finding will be limited solely to such invalid or unenforceable part, without affecting the remaining parts of such individual term, or any other part of the TOS, so that these TOS shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.

CinemaStock only has model or property releases where expressly indicated on the CinemaStock website.
4.10 CinemaStock's liability under any individual license purchased hereunder shall not exceed the "Limit of Liability" applicable to the license in effect at the time customer knows or should have known of the claim, and is without regard to the number of times the subject media files is licensed or used by you.
4.11 Except as specifically provided in Part III hereof, in no event, will CinemaStock's total aggregate liability to you or any third party claiming through you, arising out of or in connection with your use of or inability to use the CinemaStock websites and/or media contained thereon (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) exceed the monetary amount actually received by CinemaStock from you for the applicable media license.
4.12 Neither CinemaStock nor any of its officers, employees, managers, members, shareholders, directors or suppliers shall be liable to you or to any other person or entity for any general, punitive, special, indirect, consequential or incidental damages, or lost profits or any other damages, costs or losses arising out of your use of the media, CinemaStock's breach of this agreement, or otherwise, unless expressly provided for herein, even if CinemaStock has been advised of the possibility of such damages, costs or losses.
4.13 Except as expressly set forth in Part II, all media is provided "as is" without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of non-infringement, merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose.
