THE APP IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US OR AT OR THROUGH THE APP SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE APP WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, BE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, CURRENT OR TIMELY, UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR ERROR FREE.
WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE APP IS FREE OF DEFECTS, VIRUSES, MALFUNCTIONS, OR HARMFUL COMPONENTS THAT COULD DAMAGE OR ALLOW UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO YOUR DEVICE OR DATA.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE CAUSED, OR ALLEGED TO HAVE BEEN CAUSED, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, BY THE INFORMATION OR IDEAS CONTAINED, SUGGESTED OR REFERENCED AT OR THROUGH THE APP OR BY YOUR RELIANCE ON SUCH INFORMATION OR IDEAS.
11. Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER WE NOR OUR AFFILIATES OR OUR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR REPRESENTATIVES (OR THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS) SHALL BE LIABLE IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE APP OR THE USE, ATTEMPTED USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE APP, INCLUDING LOST REVENUE, LOST DATA, DAMAGED DEVICES OR OTHER INTANGIBLES, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN ANY EVENT, YOU AGREE THAT OUR TOTAL LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ACTUAL TOTAL AMOUNT, IF ANY, RECEIVED BY US FROM YOU TO ACCESS THE APP OR, IF GREATER, $100. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY EVEN IF THE ABOVE STATED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and release us, our subsidiaries, and our respective officers, directors, members, employees, agents, representatives (and their respective successors and assigns) from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney’s fees, arising from or related to: (i) your access, use, attempted use, inability to use or misuse of the App; (ii) your violation of any terms of this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that your use of the App caused damage to a third party.
Any controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and us relating to this Agreement or the App (each a “Claim”) shall be exclusively resolved by final and binding arbitration in San Francisco, California. The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator and submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA Rules”). The arbitration provided for herein shall be in lieu of any civil action, and any decision resulting from such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.
The cost of each arbitration proceeding, including without limitation the arbitrator’s compensation and expenses, meeting room charges, court reporter transcript charges and similar expenses, shall be borne by the party whom the arbitrator determines has not prevailed in such proceeding, or borne equally by the parties if the arbitrator determines that neither party has prevailed.
Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, a party may, at any time, seek a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction from any court of competent jurisdiction in the County of San Francisco, California, in order to prevent immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or damage on a provisional basis, pending the decision of the arbitrator on the ultimate merits of any Claim.
Neither you nor us may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or our individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
If any provision of this Section 13 is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section 13 shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section 13 will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Agreement. This Section 13 will survive the termination of your relationship with you and us.
THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALL CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU THUS GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTIONS. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY.
Should a Claim arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and us, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in the County of San Francisco, California.
This Agreement represents the entire agreement and understanding between you and us regarding the use of the App, and supersedes any prior agreement between you and us on such subject matter. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. Our failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any terms in this Agreement shall not be considered a waiver of those terms or any of our rights. Except as otherwise stated in Section 9 above, nothing herein is intended, no will be deemed, to confer rights or remedies upon any third party. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and without consent or notice, to transfer, assign, sublicense or pledge the App or this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any person or entity. You may not assign, sublicense or otherwise transfer in any manner any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement. The section headings used in this Agreement are for convenience only.
