HOW TO REPORT VIOLATIONS
DO NOT RELY ON INFORMATION POSTED
The content of the Sites is offered for general information, disclosure, transparency, discussion, support, and entertainment purposes only. Some of the content is unmoderated and reflects the personal opinions users. You should be skeptical about any information on the Sites because the information may be offensive, harmful, and/or wrong. Neither the content of the Sites, nor the links to other websites contained therein, are routinely moderated, screened, approved, reviewed, or endorsed by MAXGROUP or any affiliated person or entity.
We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of the information on the Sites. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk. We disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by you or any other visitor to the Sites, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
The Sites may include content provided by third parties, including materials provided by other users, bloggers, and third-party licensors, syndicators, aggregators, and/or reporting services. All statements and/or opinions expressed in these materials, and all articles and responses to questions and other content, other than the content provided by MAXGROUP, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity providing those materials.

We are not responsible, or liable to you or any third party, for the content or accuracy of any materials provided by any third parties.
Age and User Contribution Removal
AGE AND USER CONTRIBUTION REMOVAL
MAXGROUP does not permit minors under the age of 18 years old to access, or become Registered Users of, the Sites. If you are a minor under the age of 18 years old and a Registered User you should immediately request removal of your User Contributions posted on the Sites. To request removal of a User Contribution, you must notify us at Support@MaxGroupBusiness.com . When you contact MAXGROUP to request removal of a User Contribution, we require you to authenticate your status as a Registered User and to identify the particular User Contribution to be removed by providing the (1) URL to the User Contribution, (2) the date and time at which the User Contribution was posted, and (3) the contents of the User Contribution. If you do not properly notify us, authenticate your status as a Registered User, or properly identify the particular User Contribution to be removed, MAXGROUP is not required to remove your User Contribution and removal will be in our sole discretion.
Removal of User Contributions from the Sites does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of your User Contributions from the Sites. MAXGROUP, in our sole discretion, may retain your User Contributions on our servers in some form. However, removal will render your User Contribution invisible to other users of the Sites. We may, in our sole discretion, decide to anonymize your User Contribution such that you cannot be individually identified, rather than remove the User Contribution. In the event your User Contribution is anonymized, it will remain visible to other users of the Sites.
MAXGROUP is not responsible for the removal of User Contributions that are cached, copied, or reposted by third parties. Likewise, to the extent that any provision of federal or state law requires us to maintain certain User Contributions, we will not remove the User Contribution from the Sites.

AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
In the event of a dispute between you and us arising under or relating to anything regarding your access and/or use of our Sites and relationship with us, either of us may choose to resolve the dispute by binding arbitration, instead of in court. Any claim (except for a claim challenging the validity or enforceability of this arbitration agreement, including the Class Action Waiver) may be resolved by binding arbitration if either side requests it. THIS MEANS IF EITHER YOU OR WE CHOOSE ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
Class Action Waiver: ARBITRATION MUST BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. THIS MEANS NEITHER YOU NOR WE MAY JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION BY OR AGAINST OTHER CLIENTS OR ACCOUNTS, OR LITIGATE IN COURT OR ARBITRATE ANY CLAIMS AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY.
Arbitration: If mediation is unsuccessful, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. REPS waive all rights to trial by jury or by any court. All arbitration proceedings shall be held in the Phoenix metro area, Arizona, unless the laws of the state in which a REP resides expressly require the application of its laws, in which case the arbitration shall be held in the capital of that state. All parties shall be entitled to all discovery rights pursuant to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. There shall be one arbitrator, an attorney at law, who shall have expertise in business law transactions with a strong preference being an attorney knowledgeable in the direct selling industry, selected from the panel which the American Arbitration Panel provides. Each party to the arbitration shall be responsible for its own costs and expenses of arbitration, including legal and filing fees. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties and may, if necessary, be reduced to a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. This agreement to arbitration shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement. Nothing in the Agreement shall prevent the COMPANY from applying to and obtaining from any court having jurisdiction a writ of attachment, a temporary injunction, preliminary injunction, permanent injunction or other relief available to safeguard and protect the COMPANY’S interest prior to, during or following the filing of any arbitration or other proceeding or pending the rendition of a decision or award in connection with any arbitration or other proceeding. Intellectual property and/or trademark infringements are specifically excluded from arbitration.
Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue: Jurisdiction and venue of any matter not subject to arbitration shall reside exclusively in Phoenix metro area, State of Arizona. The Federal Arbitration Act shall govern all matters relating to arbitration. The law of the State of Arizona shall govern all other matters relating to or arising from the Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and the arbitration provision residents of the State of Louisiana shall be entitled to bring an action against the COMPANY in their home forum and pursuant to Louisiana law.
