WeFine does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any TCM consultants who are accessible via the Apps. WeFine provides individuals using the Apps with a list of available TCM consultants based solely on the information that individuals provide to WeFine.

While it is WeFine’s objective to make the Apps accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, they may be unavailable from time to time for any reason including, without limitation, routine maintenance. You understand and acknowledge that due to circumstances both within and outside of the control of WeFine, access to the Apps may be interrupted, suspended or terminated from time to time.

5. No Assignment
You may not assign or transfer any rights to any other person without WeFine’s prior written consent.

The provisions of this Agreement titled “Disclaimer of Warranties,” “Limitation of Liability,” “Indemnification,” “Intellectual Property,” “Governing Law,” “Entire Agreement,” “No Assignment,” “Waiver,” “Agreement to Arbitrate,” and “Waiver of Jury Trial and Class Actions” shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
This Agreement controls the relationship between WeFine and you. A person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right to benefit under any term of this Agreement.

WeFine’s failure to exercise or delay in exercising any right hereunder, or failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of this Agreement, shall not be considered waiver thereof, which can only be made by a signed writing. No single waiver shall be considered a continuing or permanent waiver.
10.Agreement to Arbitrate
This Agreement provides that all disputes between you and WeFine will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. You thus GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this contract (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.
Waiver of Jury Trial and Class Actions
BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND WEFINE ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO WAIVE CERTAIN RIGHTS TO LITIGATE DISPUTES IN COURT, TO RECEIVE A JURY TRIAL, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR AS A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLAIM ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. YOU AND WEFINE AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT A CONSOLIDATED, CLASS-WIDE, OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS, AND THE ARBITRATOR SHALL HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO PROCEED WITH ARBITRATION ON A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD INJUNCTIVE RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM. IF FOR ANY REASON THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT IS DEEMED IN APPLICABLE OR INVALID, OR TO THE EXTENT THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE ALLOWS FOR LITIGATION OF DISPUTES IN COURT, YOU AND WEFINE, BOTH WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR AS A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLAIM ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
