  • Governing Law, Venue, and Jurisdiction

These Terms and all claims as between you and us arising from or related to your use of the Services will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, except California’s conflict of law rules.  These Terms will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, if applicable.

Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, you must file any claim or action related to use of the Services or these Terms within one year after such claim or action accrued.  Otherwise, you will waive the claim or action.

  • Disputes; Arbitration

If you have any dispute with or claim against us or any of our affiliates, or if we have a dispute with or claim against you, in either case arising out of or relating to the Services or these Terms (a “Claim”), and the Claim is not resolved by calling our customer service department at (866)442-7873, you and we each agree to resolve such Claim through an individual binding arbitration or through an individual action in small claims court in the U.S. county (or parish) of your residence or in San Francisco, California. Class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted, and your Claim may not be consolidated with any other person’s claim. You and we agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Section 17 shall survive termination of these Terms or any subscription that you may have to any of the Services.

Before you or we commence an arbitration or file a small claims court action with respect to a Claim, you must first send to Westinghouse a written notice of your claim or we must send a written notice of our claim to you (“Notice“). Your Notice must (1) be sent by certified mail; (2) be addressed to: Corporate Headquarters Westinghouse Electric Corporation c/o Westinghouse Legal Department 20 Stanwix Street Pittsburgh, PA 15222; (3) describe the nature of your Claim; and (4) specify the damages or other relief you seek. If we and you do not then resolve the Claim within 30 days after our receipt of Notice is received, either you or we may commence an arbitration or file a small claims court action to resolve the Claim.

Any such arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association and be conducted in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”). Contact information for the American Arbitration Association, as well as copies of the Rules and applicable forms, are available at http://www.adr.org In circumstances in which the Rules provide for an in-person hearing, such hearing will take place in the U.S. county (or parish) of your residence, or otherwise in San Francisco, California. For any non-frivolous Claim that does not exceed $50,000, Westinghouse will pay all costs of the arbitration, and reimburse any filing fees you may be required to pay. If the arbitrator awards you damages that are greater than Westinghouse’s last written settlement offer communicated before commencement of the arbitration, Westinghouse will pay you the greater of $1,000 or the amount of the award.

  • Miscellaneous

We may be required by state or federal law to notify you of certain events.  You hereby acknowledge and agree that such notices will be effective upon our posting them in the relevant Service or delivering them to you via email.  You may update your email address by visiting the Services where you have provided contact information.  If you do not provide us with accurate information, we will not be responsible for failure to notify you.  Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  These Terms, including all additional terms, conditions, and policies on the Services, constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all prior agreements with respect to the subject matter hereof.  Nothing in these Terms affects any non-waivable statutory rights that apply to you.  If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, that provision will be removed, and the remainder of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.

You authorize us to provide information concerning you and your activities to comply with applicable laws or respond to court order, subpoenas, or other lawful requests, or if we believe doing so would protect your safety or that of another person or protect the security of the Services, or as otherwise described in the Privacy Policy.

If you do not agree to these Terms, you should immediately stop using the Services. 

If you want to delete your account on a Service, please use contact instructions posted on the Service at which you obtained the account. Sections 6 and 11-14 of these Terms will survive any termination of your access to the Services, whether we terminate your access or you voluntarily discontinue your use.

We may share information collected about you as disclosed at the time of collection, as otherwise disclosed in this privacy policy, and in the following circumstances:

  • With your consent.With your consent, we may share your contact information with third party marketing partners. You acknowledge that when you disclose personal information on the Westinghouse Services and you allow your information to be shared with third parties, they can contact you by email, telephone, postal mail or other common communication methods with marketing and promotional messages about their products or services. Sometimes we may give you the option to receive further communications from one of our advertising partners, for example when we run a competition in conjunction with that advertiser.

These third parties are allowed to use your contact information to help us provide our services and not for any other purpose. Also, authorized third party service providers may collect non-contact information about your visits to our Services with cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies that may be used to deliver advertisements or marketing tailored to your interests or, in connection with other data about you including data regarding your use of websites, apps or other services over time and across the Internet, to determine the connections that may exist among different devices. For example, if your IP address is associated with multiple devices (such as smartphones, connected TVs, tablets and so on), these services providers may determine that you, as a user, are connected to such devices. For more information, visit our overview on cookies, web beacons and other technologies (including Do Not Track).

Your information also may be disclosed as required by law, such as on a winners list. Further, by entering a promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that promotion, including allowing our sponsors to use your name, voice, and likeness in advertising and marketing associated with the promotion in accordance with applicable law. All terms applicable to the particular promotion will be made available to you at the time you enter the promotion.
  • Co-Branded Partners.Co-Branded Partners are third parties with whom a Westinghouse Service may jointly offer a service or feature. You can tell when you are accessing a service or feature offered by a Co-Branded Partner because the Co-Branded Partner’s name will be featured prominently. You may be asked to provide information about yourself to register for a service offered by a Co-Branded Partner. In doing so, you may be providing your information to both us and the Co-Branded Partner, or we may share your information with the Co-Branded Partner. Please note that the Co-Branded Partner’s privacy policy may also apply to its use of your information.
  • Westinghouse Services and other Westinghouse businesses.Westinghouse and other business units of Westinghouse continue to expand their online presence in order to offer users rich and deep interactive experiences. Where permitted by law, we may share information we collect about you within the family of Westinghouse Services, with Westinghouse, and other Westinghouse-affiliated companies, so that we can provide you with information about products and services that might interest you.
  • Business transfers.We may share your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a Westinghouse Service, a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
  • Legal requirements.We may disclose information about our users, including contact information, to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, and other law enforcement measures, and to comply with other legal obligations.
