Limitation of Liability
Neither the Network nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the services or content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute services arising out of or in connection with these terms or from the use of or inability to use the services or content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not the Network has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
In no event will the Network’s total liability arising out of or in connection with these terms or from the use of or inability to use the services or content exceed the amounts you have paid to the Network for use of the Services or content or one hundred dollars ($100), if you have not had any payment obligations to the Network, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the agreement between the Network and you.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between the Network and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between the Network and you regarding the Services and Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without the Network’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. The Network may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by the Network under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given by the Network: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Site. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
The Network’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of the Network. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
Changes to Terms or Services
The Network may modify the Terms at any time, at its sole discretion. Any such changes will be reflected on the Terms of Service page and will supersede previous Terms.
