GAF provides the Program "As Is" and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, expressly disclaims any representation or warranties of any kind, express or implied, including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. Participation in the Program is at the Member’s own risk.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL GAF, ITS PARENT COMPANY, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, SERVICE PROVIDERS AND EACH OF ITS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND REPRESENTATIVES (“GAF PARTIES”) BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL CONSEQUENTIAL, OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE PROGRAM, THE POINTS, THE REWARDS OR THE PROGRAM TERMS. THE SPONSOR PARTIES’ TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE PROGRAM, THE POINTS, THE REWARDS OR THE PROGRAM TERMS, WILL NOT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US $100.00). THESE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY WILL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, AND MAY NOT BE PERMITTED IN SOME STATES. THESE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY WILL SURVIVE CANCELLATION OF THE PROGRAM OR TERMINATION OF A MEMBER FROM THE PROGRAM. THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION WILL NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR GAF’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE, WILLFUL MISCONDUCT, OR FRAUD.
The Member agrees to indemnify and hold the GAF Parties harmless from and against any loss, damage, liability, cost, or expense of any kind (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or related to the use of the Program, any fraud or misuse of the Program, any violation of the Program Terms, and/or violation of any applicable law or the rights of any third party by the Member, its Primary Account Holder or its Authorized User.
X. DISPUTE RESOLUTION & ARBITRATION AGREEMENT (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”)
Scope of the Arbitration Agreement. Each Member and GAF (each, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”) agree that any legal dispute between the Parties arising in any way out of or related to the Program, the Points, the Rewards, the Program Terms, or any communications between the Parties arising out of or relating to the Program shall be resolved through binding individual arbitration. Each Member understands and agrees that it is waiving the right to sue or go to court to assert or defend its rights. However, a Member or GAF may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, as long as it is brought and maintained as an individual claim. The term “dispute” means any dispute, action, claim, or other controversy between a Member and GAF, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.
Informal Dispute Resolution. Either Party asserting a dispute shall first try in good faith to resolve it by providing written notice as specified below to the other Party describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) and allowing the receiving Party 30 days in which to respond. Notice shall be made by first class or registered mail (1) to GAF at GAF Rewards Program 1 Campus Drive Parsippany, NJ 07054 Attn: GAF Rewards, or (2) to the Member at the postal address on file with GAF. The Parties agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration against the other Party.
How Arbitration Works. Either Member or GAF may initiate arbitration, which shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available on the AAA’s website www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at (800) 778-7879. In the event the AAA is unavailable or unwilling to hear the dispute, the Parties shall agree to, or the court shall select, another arbitration provider. Unless the Parties agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing shall take place in the county of Member’s location (as determined by the address of the Member on file with GAF).
Waiver of Right to Bring Class Action and Representative Claims. All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other Member. The Parties also agree that each may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in an individual capacity and in so doing the Parties hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in any class action lawsuit or class action arbitration, any private attorney general lawsuit or private attorney general arbitration, and any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that the limitations of this paragraph are deemed invalid or unenforceable, any putative class, private attorney general, or representative action must be brought in a court of proper jurisdiction and not in arbitration. In such case, the venue shall be the county of the Members’ residence (as determined by the address of the Member on file with GAF).
Governing Law and Other Terms. This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act and other applicable federal law. To the extent state law applies to any aspect of this Arbitration Agreement, or to any disputes and claims that are covered by the Arbitration Agreement, the law of the State of New Jersey will govern without reference to its conflict of laws principles. GAF will provide notice of any material changes to this Arbitration Agreement. Except as set forth above in the section regarding waiver of the right to bring a class action, if any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Agreement. Only the arbitrator is authorized to make determinations as to the scope, validity, or enforceability of this Agreement, including whether any dispute falls within its scope. However, the Parties agree that any issue concerning the validity of the class action/representative waiver above must be decided by a court, and an arbitrator does not have authority to consider the validity of the waiver. This Arbitration Agreement survives the cancellation or termination of the Program or membership in the Program by Member or by GAF.
XI. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS
GAF’s failure to comply with these Program Terms because of an act of God, war, fire, riot, terrorism, earthquake, actions of federal, state or local governmental authorities or for any other reason beyond the reasonable control of GAF, shall not be deemed a breach of these Program Terms.
If GAF fails to act with respect to a Member’s breach or anyone else's breach of the Program Terms on any occasion, GAF is not waiving its right to act with respect to future or similar breaches.
If any provision of the Program Terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The Program Terms constitute the entire agreement between the Parties regarding the Program, Points and Rewards. The Contractor Zone is becoming GAF Partner Portal. This Agreement does not supersede any terms applicable to the GAF Partner Portal. Upon your company’s acceptance of the terms applicable to the GAF Partner Portal, these terms and conditions will be deemed updated to take the form of the General Terms and Conditions applicable to the GAF Partner Portal in combination with the GAF Rewards Supplemental Terms, which form part of the General Terms and Conditions, and your access to and participation in the Program will be subject to such General Terms and Conditions and GAF Rewards Supplemental Terms, not these terms and conditions. The General Terms and Conditions and GAF Rewards Supplemental Terms may be found in the GAF Legal Documents section of the Document Library in the GAF Partner Portal. If you do not agree to such updated terms and conditions, you must stop accessing and participating in the Program, and you must terminate your agreement for the Program by emailing GAFRewards@gaf.com and following any further instructions you receive. Until your company accepts the terms applicable to the GAF Partner Portal, your access to and participation in the Program will remain subject to these terms and conditions, not the terms applicable to the GAF Partner Portal.
