Customer agrees that upon Company’s assumption of the defense of the IP Claim: i) Company will not be liable to Customer for any legal costs or expenses subsequently incurred by Customer in connection with the IP Claim; ii) is not an acknowledgment by Company that it is liable to indemnify Customer in respect of the IP Claim; and iii) it will not constitute a waiver by Company of any defenses it may assert against the Customer if Customer claims it is owed indemnification for such IP Claim.

- TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL COMPANY BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF OPPORTUNITY, LOSS OF ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF CUSTOMER CONTENT, OR LOSS OF ANY DATA RELATED THERETO, OR ANY INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, OR FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OR ARE OTHERWISE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. CUSTOMER AGREES THAT THE CONSIDERATION WHICH COMPANY CHARGES HEREUNDER DOES NOT INCLUDE CONSIDERATION FOR ASSUMPTION BY COMPANY OF THE RISK OF CUSTOMER’S INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
- IN NO EVENT WILL COMPANY’S TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE LESSER OF: THE PAYMENT OF THE COST OF HAVING THE SERVICES SUPPLIED AGAIN, OR REFUND OF FEES ACTUALLY PAID FOR THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE MONTHS PRECEDING THE APPLICABLE CLAIM GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY. CUSTOMER AGREES THAT COMPANY’S LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER AT LAW WILL BE REDUCED BY THE EXTENT, IF ANY, TO WHICH CUSTOMER CONTRIBUTED TO THE LOSS. MULTIPLE CLAIMS WILL NOT EXPAND THIS LIMITATION. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION ARE INTEGRAL TO THE AMOUNT OF FEES CHARGED IN CONNECTION WITH MAKING THE SERVICES AVAILABLE TO CUSTOMER, AND THAT, WERE COMPANY TO ASSUME ANY FURTHER LIABILITY OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH HEREIN, SUCH FEES WOULD OF NECESSITY BE SET SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER.

- Governing Law. The Laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflict of Laws rules, will apply to any and all disputes arising out of or relating to the Services or this Agreement (“Disputes”). All legal actions in connection with a Dispute under this Agreement will be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts exercising jurisdiction in Delaware. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (the “Vienna Sales Convention 1980”) is excluded from this Agreement.
- Disputes. CUSTOMER AND COMPANY AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER MAY ONLY BE BROUGHT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED, AND CUSTOMER IS FOREGOING A JURY TRIAL AND WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST COMPANY. All Disputes shall be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association (www.adr.org) or JAMS (www.jamsadr.org) according to this provision and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. Consumer claimants (individuals whose use of the Services is intended for personal, family, or household use) may elect to pursue their claims in their local small-claims court rather than through arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. If Customer is a consumer bringing a claim relating to personal, household, or family use, any arbitration hearing will occur within the county or parish where Customer resides. Otherwise, any arbitration hearing will occur in Delaware, or another mutually agreeable location. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to Customer and Company also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized Users or beneficiaries of the Services.
- Remedies. Each party acknowledges and agrees that any actual or threatened breach of the TOU will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to the Company for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach, and that if granted, the breaching party agrees to waive any bond that would otherwise be required. If any legal action is brought by a party to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive from the non-prevailing party.
- Export Control. The Services made available by Company may be subject to the export control Laws of the United States and other jurisdictions. Customer shall comply with all applicable export Laws, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing: (a) Customer represents that it is not named on any U.S. government list of persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports; and (b) Customer shall not permit Users to access or use Services in violation of any U.S. export embargo, prohibition or restriction.
- Anti-Corruption. Customer agrees that Customer has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from any of Company’s employees or agents in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction. If Customer hears of any violation of the above restriction, Customer will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify Company’s Legal Department at email@example.com.
- Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any right or obligation under this Agreement may be transferred, assigned or delegated by Customer, by operation of Law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Company. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void and shall not confer any rights or remedies upon any person or entity not a party hereto. This Agreement may be assigned or transferred by Company without the consent of the Customer. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective representatives, heirs, administrators, successors and permitted assigns.
- Relationship of the Parties. The Parties are independent contractors. This Agreement does not create a partnership, joint venture, agency, or fiduciary relationship between the parties. Each party will be solely responsible for payment of all compensation owed to its employees, as well as employment related taxes. No rights for third party beneficiaries are created by this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to confer any rights or remedies on any person or entity which is not a party to this Agreement.
- Non Solicitation. During the Term, and for a period of one year thereafter, Customer shall not solicit for hire, on behalf of itself or any other organization, any personnel of the Company with Customer has had contact pursuant to the relationship established under this Agreement. If Customer violates this Section 14.K, it shall pay the Company an amount equal to six months’ compensation of the hired personnel.
- Waivers. Any waiver by Company must be in writing and signed by an authorized Company representative. No waiver by Company of any breach of this Agreement shall be a waiver of any preceding or succeeding breach. No failure or delay by Company in enforcing any right or provision under this Agreement shall be construed as a waiver of such right or provision or of any other right or provision.
- Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to render it enforceable while preserving the Parties’ original intent to the fullest extent, and the rights and obligations of the parties shall be construed and enforced accordingly. If the provision cannot be modified, then that provision will be deemed severed from this Agreement and all other provisions will remain in full force and effect.
- Electronic Signatures. This Agreement and any Ordering Document may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which when so executed and delivered or transmitted by facsimile, e-mail or other electronic means, shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute but one and the same instrument.
