THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH HEREIN ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND FPK. FPK WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH ACCESS AND USE OF THE SITE AND ITS SERVICES WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of our liability will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.
We reserve the right to seek any and all remedies available at law and/or in equity for violations of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the right to block access to the Site from a particular Internet address or phone number.

You agree to give up your rights to participate in a class action or representative action with respect to any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the Site, the Service or FPK. Neither you or FPK will be entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against other parties or otherwise participate in any claim as a class representative, class member or in a private attorney general capacity.
You agree that any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the Site shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Moreover, the arbitrator(s) will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this Class Action Waiver, Dispute Resolution, & Arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator(s) will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties.
You agree that the arbitration shall be held in Houston, Texas unless the AAA or the arbitrator shall determine that venue in Houston is unreasonably burdensome, in which case the AAA or the arbitrator shall select a venue that is not unreasonably burdensome to both you and us. You agree that, if the AAA shall be unavailable or decline to administer the arbitration, and the parties do not agree on a substitute, a substitute administrator or arbitrator shall be appointed by the court. The arbitrator may render early or summary disposition of some or all issues, after the parties have had a reasonable opportunity to make submissions on these issues. At FPK’s option, this provision shall not apply to claims of patent, trademark, or copyright infringement or misappropriation of trade secrets (collectively, “IP Claims”). With respect to any IP Claims that are not subject to arbitration under the above provision, you hereby consent to non-exclusive jurisdiction and venue in any federal or state court located within the State of Texas, U.S.A., with respect to any suit, claim, or cause of action arising from or relating to the Service or this Agreement, and you shall not bring any such suit, claim or cause of action except in a court located within the State of Texas, U.S.A. You agree that any arbitration shall not permit claims on a class, mass, representative, or private attorney general basis. You further agree that no claims of other parties may be consolidated with your or our claims in the arbitration without both your and our consent. YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS, MASS, REPRESENTATIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR CONSOLIDATED ACTION AGAINST US. If any part of this Arbitration clause is later deemed invalid as a matter of law, then it shall be severed, and the remaining portions of this section shall remain in effect, with the exception that if the preceding paragraph is deemed invalid, then this entire section shall be deemed invalid and the arbitration clause shall be void.
I understand that the 10 Test Panel with HIV RNA Early Detection will replace the HIV 1 & 2 Antibody (4th Gen) with the HIV RNA Early Detection Test.

I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to request the HIV 1 & 2 Antibody (4th Gen) if I or a sexual partner has recently traveled to West Africa and/or been exposed to HIV 2.Most Testing 1-4 Business Days (Some Tests Longer)
Most test results are available within 1-4 business days after a sample is collected however certain tests may by their nature require additional processing time.
