However, we do not undertake to review material before it is posted on the Website, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
If you believe that any User Contributions violate your copyright, please see our Copyright Policy below for instructions on sending us a Notice of copyright infringement. It is the policy of AWS to terminate the user accounts of repeat infringers.
AWS has designated an agent with the United States Copyright Office in accordance with the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Sec. 512, (the “DMCA”) and avails itself of the protections under the DMCA. Further, we reserve the right to remove any content which allegedly infringes another person’s copyright.
If you believe any materials on the Website infringe a copyright, you should provide us with a request to take down the allegedly infringing material in the form of a written letter, sent by regular mail only (“DMCA Takedown Notice”), which at a minimum includes:
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
- Your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available);
- A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, or the law;
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; and
- The signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to ignore a DMCA Takedown Notice that is not in compliance with the DMCA.
If your material has been removed or blocked by us as a result of our receipt of a DMCA Takedown Notice, you may send us a request asking for the allegedly infringing material to be restored in the form of a written letter, sent by regular mail only (“DMCA Counter-Notice”), which at a minimum includes:
- Identification of the copyrighted work (or works) that was removed and the location at which the works appeared before they were removed. The information must be reasonably sufficient to permit us to identify the copyrighted work;
- Your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available);
- A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or North Carolina if your address is outside of the United States;
- A statement that you will accept service of process from the person (or an agent of such person) who provided the DMCA Takedown Notice to us;
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that the allegedly infringing material identified above as the copyrighted work was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
- A signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyrighted work that was taken down.
When we receive a DMCA Counter-Notice, we will send a copy of the DMCA Counter-Notice to the party who originally sent us the DMCA Takedown Notice and we will reinstate the allegedly infringing material, unless that party obtains a court order supporting removal of the allegedly infringing material. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to ignore a DMCA Counter-Notice that is not in compliance with the DMCA.
Both the DMCA Takedown Notice and the DMCA Counter-Notice must be sent to our designated DMCA agent addressed as follows:
ADVANCED WELLNESS SYSTEMS, LLC
Attn: DMCA Agent
5561 McNeely Drive, Suite 301
Raleigh, North Carolina 27612
You should contact the DMCA agent only for delivering copyright infringement notices and counter notifications. The DMCA agent will not answer any other inquiries.

ADVANCED WELLNESS SYSTEMS, LLC
Attn: Carolyn Naseer
5561 McNeely Drive, Suite 301
Raleigh, North Carolina 27612
If, however, there is an issue that needs to be resolved, these Terms of Service describe how both of us will proceed:
Limitation of Legal Remedies. INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, YOU AND AWS EACH AGREE TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES ON A BILATERAL (INDIVIDUAL) BASIS. You and AWS agree that with the exception of any violation of AWS intellectual property rights and any other rights set forth below, any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to any aspect of our relationship, the products and Services accessible from AWS, or our marketing efforts, including complaints concerning unsolicited text messages, e-mails, and telemarketing calls (collectively, “Claim(s)”) which cannot be settled through customer service refunding your payments in full, will be resolved by one arbitrator through binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes Claims based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq., and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
Jury Trial Waiver. YOU AND AWS EACH VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN RESOLVING ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN US ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, THE WEBSITE OR THE SERVICES.
Class Action Waiver. You and AWS each agree that we may bring claims against the other only in an individual capacity and not in a class action or representative proceeding. All arbitrations under these Terms of Service must be conducted on an individual (and not a class-wide) basis, and an arbitrator will have no authority to award class-wide relief. You acknowledge and agree that: (i) these Terms of Service specifically prohibit you from commencing any legal proceedings as a representative of others, participating in a class, representative, or collective action as a class representative, class member or an opt-in party, acting as a private attorney general, or joining or consolidating Claims with claims or proceedings brought by any other person; and (ii) there will be no right or authority for any dispute to be brought, heard or arbitrated as a class or collective action, as a private attorney general, or in a representative capacity on behalf of any person (“class action waiver”).
Resolution by Arbitration. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the Claim and setting forth the specific relief sought (a “Notice”). All Notices to AWS must be sent to the following address: ADVANCED WELLNESS SYSTEMS, LLC, 5561 McNeely Drive, Suite 301, Raleigh, North Carolina 27612. All notices to you will be sent to the e-mail or street address provided in your account, if available. Upon receipt of such Notice, the receiving party will have a sixty (60) day period in which it may satisfy the Claim against it by fully curing the Claim, providing all the relief requested in the Notice, or entering into a settlement to resolve the Claim to the mutual satisfaction of the parties. After the expiration of such sixty (60) day cure period, you or AWS may commence an arbitration proceeding. The arbitration of any Claim under these Terms will be referred to the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. These rules and procedures are available by calling the AAA or by visiting its web site at www.adr.org. The arbitration of any Claim will be conducted in the State of North Carolina, and for any non-frivolous Claim that does not exceed $10,000, AWS: (1) will pay all costs of the arbitration; (2) will, if you prefer, conduct the arbitration by telephone; and (3) will not seek attorney’s fees if AWS prevails. Each party will pay the fees and costs of its own counsel, experts, and witnesses.
Choice of Law. These Terms of Service concerns a transaction in interstate commerce, and therefore will be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”). The FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
Exception. Any Claim or action for (i) indemnification, (ii) any violation of AWS intellectual property rights, (iii) contribution, (iv) interpleader, or (v) injunctive relief arising out of a Claim, will not be subject to arbitration.
Survival. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service and the closing of your account or other relationship with AWS.
Severability. If any provision of this Dispute Resolution provision is declared or found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be unlawful, unenforceable or void, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent that it is found unlawful, unenforceable or void, and the remainder of the provision and all other provisions will remain fully enforceable, except that if for some reason the class action waiver for any Claim cannot be enforced, then the provision to arbitrate will not apply.
Statute of Limitations. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any dispute or Claim must be filed within one (1) year after such Claim or cause of action arose, or be forever barred.
Except as otherwise stated herein, these Terms of Service constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between AWS and you regarding the Website and the Services, and these Terms of Service supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between AWS and you regarding the Website and Service. These Terms of Service shall not supersede any conflicting provisions of Master Services Agreement between AWS and you, if any. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms of Service invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms of Service will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms of Service, by operation of law or otherwise, without AWS’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms of Service, without such consent, will be null. AWS may freely assign or transfer these Terms of Service without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms of Service will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by AWS under these Terms of Service, including those regarding modifications to these Terms of Service, will be given: (i) via e-mail; or (ii) by posting to AWS the Website.
