Disclaimer of Warranties
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, THE PRODUCTS AND ALL INFORMATION, SERVICES, CONTENT AND MATERIALS THEREON AND THEREWITH ARE PROVIDED AND DISTRIBUTED ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS-AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER. OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, COMPANY MAKES NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER (WHETHER EXPRESS, STATUTORY, IMPLIED OR OTHERWISE) TO YOU OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY. FURTHER, COMPANY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, WITH RESPECT TO ALL PRODUCTS OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT. MOREOVER, YOU AGREE THAT COMPANY WILL HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM RELATED TO, IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING FROM THE PRODUCTS (OR THEIR USE, SUITABILITY, EFFICACY OR PERFORMANCE), EVEN IF COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS PROHIBIT THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTLY OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. SPECIFICALLY, BUT WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT: (a) THE INFORMATION, SERVICES, MATERIALS OR CONTENT ON THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICE IS CORRECT, ACCURATE OR RELIABLE; (b) THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICE OR THROUGH THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE; OR (c) ANY DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT USE OF THE PRODUCTS IS AT YOUR SOLE AND ABSOLUTE RISK IN YOUR OWN DISCRETION. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL MAINTAIN A PRIMARY ELECTRONIC FILE OF YOUR COMPLETE DATA AND MATERIALS AND WILL NOT USE THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICE AS A SUBSTITUTE THEREFORE.
NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY COMPANY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES WILL UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CREATE A WARRANTY, UNLESS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN AN EXPRESS WRITING SIGNED BY AN OFFICER OF THE COMPANY. SHOULD THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICE PROVE DEFECTIVE OR ERRONEOUS, YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICE, REPAIR OR CORRECTION AND WE WILL HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT THERETO.
Limitation of Liability
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, other than pursuant to a party’s indemnification obligations under Section 11 below, in no event shall either party: (i) be liable to the other party (regardless of the theory of liability) or any third party for any indirect, special, consequential, incidental or punitive damages (including without limitation for lost profits or revenues), even if such party was informed of the possibility of such damages, related to, in connection with or arising from this Agreement or the Products; or (ii) have total cumulative liability hereunder (regardless of the theory of liability) related to, in connection with or arising from this Agreement or the Products exceeding ten dollars ($10.00). Any claim by you arising out of or relating to this Agreement must be brought within one (1) year after the occurrence of the event giving rise to such claim. You expressly acknowledge and agree that the limitations of liability set forth in this Section 10 are an essential element of this Agreement, and in the absence of such limitations, the economic terms of this Agreement would have been substantially different than provided herein and/or the parties would not have entered into this Agreement.
Modifications of the Agreement
The Company may change any term of this Agreement on a prospective basis, and modify, add or discontinue any aspect, content or feature of the Software or Service, at its sole discretion. Your continued use of the Software or Service after any such modifications or changes are posted will constitute your complete and unequivocal acceptance of any such modifications or changes to the Agreement. You agree to periodically review this Agreement to ensure that you are in compliance with any ongoing changes or modifications that are made to the Agreement. To the extent that an arbitrator or court of applicable jurisdiction determines that applying any changes to these Terms would render this an illusory or unenforceable contract, such changes shall be applicable on a prospective basis only, with respect to events or circumstances occurring after the date of such changes, to the extent necessary to avoid these terms being deemed illusory or unenforceable.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 15 below, you expressly agree that any use of the Products by you that violates or is inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement (in whole or in part) may: (i) cause Company irreparable damage, and (ii) equitable or injunctive relief (including, but not limited to, specific performance) may be necessary to protect our rights or interests. Accordingly, you agree that Company may in any such instance, in its sole and absolute discretion and judgment, obtain any suitable injunctive or other equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction (without posting any bond) and that you will not assert any objection thereof (including, but not limited to, a claim that such relief is inappropriate or that the harm alleged by Company is not irreparable).
If you are dissatisfied for any reason with the Software or Service or the terms and conditions of this Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy (whether at law or equity) shall be to discontinue your use of the Software and Service and terminate this Agreement as described herein.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive and procedural laws of the State of California, without regard to the conflicts of law provisions thereof. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act shall not apply to the Agreement.
By agreeing to these terms, you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court, or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. If Company’s efforts to informally resolve any complaints, disputes or disagreements fail, each party expressly agrees that any controversy, dispute or claim (“Litigation”) arising out of, relating to or in connection with, this Agreement or the Software or Service, or the alleged breach thereof, shall be settled by confidential binding arbitration in Los Angeles County, California, in accordance with the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be binding on the parties and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction worldwide. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action by you arising out of or related to the Software or Service or this Agreement must be filed or arbitrated by you within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. In the event of any Litigation, both parties expressly and irrevocably consent to the exclusive venue and personal jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. In the event of any Litigation arising from, related to or in connection with this Agreement or the Software or Service, the prevailing party thereof shall be entitled to recover its reasonable expenses, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and the costs of litigation and arbitration. By downloading, installing and/or using the Software or Service, you agree to binding arbitration. Company will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes or disagreements that you may have with Company. The agreement to arbitrate in this Section 15(b) shall not prevent Company from seeking equitable relief or other redress in any court of competent jurisdiction as it relates to confidential information or as otherwise set forth in Section 13.
If any provision of this Agreement is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then: (i) such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible under the circumstances so as to effectuate the original intent of the parties with respect to such provisions; and (ii) the remaining provisions of this Agreement will be unaffected thereby and will continue to remain in full force and effect.
Company will not be liable for any failure to perform acts due to causes beyond its control including, without limitation, electrical outage, internet service provider downtime, power failure, fire, flood, strike, civil disturbance, terrorism, war or Acts of God. If any such circumstances occur, Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to attempt to provide reasonable notice to you of the same. The time for Company to perform hereunder will be extended for a period of time equal to the duration of the delay or default caused thereby.
Unless otherwise stated herein, any notices to Company hereunder shall be in writing and be delivered by mail, facsimile or electronic mail to the persons and at the address as set forth below, and shall be deemed given upon (i) three (3) business days after mailing if by certified or registered first class postal mail, return receipt requested, or (ii) confirmation of transmission in the case of facsimile or electronic mail. Either party may change its address for receipt of notice to the other party by delivering written notice of such change pursuant to this Section 15(e).
