The Game includes the Unreal® Engine code and other code, materials, and information (the “Epic Materials”) from Epic Games, Inc. (“Epic”). All Epic Materials are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, “with all faults” and without warranty of any kind. Company, Epic, and Epic’s affiliates disclaim all warranties, conditions, common law duties, and representations (express, implied, oral, and written) with respect to the Epic Materials, including without limitation all express, implied, and statutory warranties and conditions of any kind, such as title, non-interference with your enjoyment, authority, non-infringement, merchantability, fitness or suitability for any purpose (whether or not Epic knows or has reason to know of any such purpose), system integration, accuracy or completeness, results, reasonable care, workmanlike effort, lack of negligence, and lack of viruses, whether alleged to arise under law, by reason of custom or usage in the trade, or by course of dealing. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Company, Epic, and Epic’s affiliates make no warranty that (1) any of the Epic Materials will operate properly, including as integrated in the Game, (2) that the Epic Materials will meet your requirements, (3) that the operation of the Epic Materials will be uninterrupted, bug free, or error free in any or all circumstances, (4) that any defects in the Epic Materials can or will be corrected, (5) that the Epic Materials are or will be in compliance with a platform manufacturer’s rules or requirements, or (6) that a platform manufacturer has approved or will approve this Game, or will not revoke approval of this Game for any or no reason. Any warranty against infringement that may be provided in Section 2-312 of the Uniform Commercial Code or in any other comparable statute is expressly disclaimed by Company and Epic. Company, Epic, and Epic’s affiliates do not guarantee continuous, error-free, virus-free, or secure operation of or access to the Epic Materials. This paragraph will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, neither Company, Epic, Epic’s licensors, nor its or their affiliates, nor any of Company’s or Epic’s service providers, shall be liable in any way for loss or damage of any kind resulting from the use or inability to use the Epic Materials or otherwise in connection with these Terms, including but not limited to loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure, or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses.

These limitations and exclusions regarding damages apply even if any remedy fails to provide adequate compensation.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, the liability of Company, Epic, Epic’s licensors, its and their affiliates, and any of Company’s or Epic’s service providers shall be limited to the full extent permitted by law.

17. Dispute Resolution
In the event the parties are not able to resolve any Dispute between them arising out of or concerning these Terms, or any provisions hereof, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise at law or in equity for damages or any other relief, then, except as provided below, the parties hereby agree to submit any Dispute they cannot resolve informally to final and binding arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted in Multnomah County, Oregon before a single neutral arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS. The arbitrator will follow Oregon law in adjudicating the Dispute. The arbitrator will provide a detailed written statement of decision, which will be part of the arbitration award and admissible in any judicial proceeding to confirm, correct or vacate the award. Interpretations of these Terms, including determinations of unconscionability, will be determined by the arbitrator selected through this provision. The parties will initially share the cost of such arbitration, provided that the prevailing party will be entitled to all fees and costs associated with arbitration (or enforcement of an award therefrom), including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney's fees, from the other party upon completion of the arbitration or subsequent enforcement action.
The parties acknowledge and agree that any action with respect to your infringement or alleged infringement of any Intellectual Property Rights, any action in which Company seeks equitable relief, or any other action that may not be submitted to arbitration under applicable law, including the enforcement of any arbitration ruling, shall be tried by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Multnomah County, Oregon. For that limited purpose, you hereby consent to the jurisdiction of the State of Tennessee and agree that its laws will be used to resolve any Disputes hereunder.
18. Class Action Waiver
Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class/representative/collective actions are not permitted. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT A PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN EACH PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE AND/ OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, SUCH AS IN THE FORM OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER. Further, unless both you and Company agree otherwise, 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.
