WE AND OUR INDEMNITEES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTIES FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ALLEGEDLY SUSTAINED ARISING OUT OF THE AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE OR PUBLICATION, THE SALE, PURCHASE, RECEIPT, USE OR MISUSE OF ANY MERCHANDISE, PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICE OR PUBLICATIONS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION CONTENT, YOUR ABILITY OR INABILITY TO ACCESS, VISIT AND/OR USE THE SERVICE OR PUBLICATION, INCLUDING DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER, MOBILE OR OTHER DEVICE, OR FOR SOFTWARE DISABLING DEVICES, TIME BOMBS, VIRUSES, WORMS, BUGS, OR DEVICES OR DEFECTS OF SIMILAR NATURE ALLEGED TO HAVE BEEN OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICE OR PUBLICATION, YOUR ACCESS, VISITATION, AND/OR USE OF, OR RELIANCE ON, THE SERVICE OR PUBLICATION OR ANY OF THE MERCHANDISE, PRODUCTS, SERVICE OR PUBLICATIONS AND/OR CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE OR PUBLICATION, REGARDLESS OF THE TYPE OF CLAIM OR THE NATURE OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR LIABILITY TO YOU EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY YOU TO US FOR THE APPLICABLE SERVICE OR PUBLICATION DURING THE THREE MONTH PERIOD IN WHICH THE CLAIM AROSE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. THE AGREEMENT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAWS OF SUCH STATES, BUT TO THE EXTENT A CLAIM IS BROUGHT THEREIN, OUR LIABILITY AND WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, IN PART: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR”.

10. Termination or Suspension of the Service or Publication, Your Use of the Service or Publication, and/or the Agreement:

A. We reserve the right, in addition to our other remedies, to terminate, discontinue, suspend and/or restrict the Service or Publication, your account/profile, your ability to access, visit and/or use the Service or Publication or any portion thereof, and/or the Agreement, including without limitation any of our purported obligations hereunder, for any or no reason, with or without notice.

B. Even if the Service or Publication, your ability to access, visit and/or use the Service or Publication or any portion thereof, and/or the Agreement is terminated, discontinued, suspended or restricted, by you or by us, we have no obligation to (but we may in our discretion) remove any Content, and therefore copies of all information with regard to your account/profile and/or Content you may have posted, uploaded, transmitted, sent or otherwise made available on or through the Service or Publication, may be retained and/or remain viewable by us, our licensors, vendors, Service or Publication providers and/or other third parties, including other users. Nevertheless, we have no obligation to retain, store, or provide you with any information with regard to your account/profile and/or Content you may have posted, uploaded, transmitted, sent or otherwise made available on or through the Service or Publication. All provisions of the Agreement shall survive the termination or expiration of the Agreement and/or your account/profile.

11. Communications to You:

A. The communications between you and us usually use electronic means, whether you access, visit or use the Service or Publication, send us messages, or whether we post notices on the Service or Publication or communicate with you via messaging. For contractual purposes, you (a) consent to receive communications from us in electronic form; and (b) agree that all notices, documents, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were in writing. Your consent to receive communications and do business electronically, and your agreement to do so applies to all of your interactions and transactions with us.

B. You understand and agree that joining the Service or Publication may include receiving certain communications from us, such as transactional or relationship messages, and/or messages about your account/profile, and that these communications are considered part of your account/profile and you may not be able to opt out of receiving them without ceasing to be a registered user of the Service or Publication.

12. Disputes and Jurisdiction:

A. The Service or Publication is based in the United States. It is not designed, customized or intended for, or directed to, any other country. Those who choose to access, visit and/or use the Service or Publication do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. We make no representation, warranty or guarantee that the Service or Publication, or any merchandise, products, Service or Publications, and/or Content available on or through the Service or Publication are appropriate, available, or legal in any particular geographic location.

B. In any dispute between us, your sole remedy is to stop using your account/profile and/or the Service or Publication, including without limitation cancelling any Fee-based Service or Publications. This includes any dispute related to or arising out of: (i) rules, restrictions, limitations, terms and conditions that apply to the Service or Publication, whether listed in this Agreement or the Privacy Policy, posted at various points in the Service or Publication, or otherwise communicated to you, including our enforcement, non-enforcement, or application of any such rules; (ii) any of our policies and/or practices, including our enforcement, non-enforcement, or application of any such policies and/or practices; (iii) any Content available on or through the Service or Publication, or any edits, deletions, additions, or other changes thereto; (iv) your ability or inability to access, visit and/or use portions of the Service or Publication, or the Service or Publication as a whole, or features, functionality, and/or Content available on or through the Service or Publication; or (v) the amount, type, and/or basis for determining any Fees, any changes thereto, or additional Fees.

C. You agree that in the event of any dispute between us, you will first contact us and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action. In the event of any court action, all disputes will be resolved individually, without resort to any class action, and you specifically waive your right to a trial by jury. Furthermore, you agree that any cause of action must commence within one (1) year after the underlying issue first arose; otherwise, you waive any right to bring such cause of action and such cause of action is permanently barred.

D. You agree that, regardless of where you access, visit and/or use the Service or Publication, all issues concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of the Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States, and in particular the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to any principles of conflict of laws. Any disputes that result in court action will be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Boston, Massachusetts, and you specifically consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and waive any claim of forum non-conveniens. Should there be a conflict between the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and any other laws, the conflict will be resolved in favor of the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

E. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of the Agreement, or portion thereof, to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision or portion will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of the Agreement will continue to be valid and enforceable in full force and effect.

13. Miscellaneous:

A. We reserve the right to post, from time to time, additional rules that apply to certain portions of the Service or Publication, or the Service or Publication as a whole. Such additional rules will be posted in the relevant portions of the Service or Publication, and are hereby incorporated into the Agreement by this reference. Your continued access, visitation and/or use of the Service or Publication constitutes your agreement to comply with these additional rules.

B. The rules, restrictions, limitations, terms and conditions that apply to the Service or Publication, whether listed in this Agreement or the Privacy Policy, posted at various points in the Service or Publication, or otherwise communicated to you, constitutes the Agreement and entire understanding between the parties, and supersedes prior agreements between the parties, whether oral or written, with respect to the subject matter hereof. Unless explicitly stated in writing by us, any new or additional features, functionality, or Content that augment or enhance the Service or Publication, including the release of updates, upgrades, new products and/or Service or Publications, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

C. Any delay or failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver by us shall have effect unless such waiver is set forth in writing, signed by us; nor shall any such waiver of any breach or default constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default.

D. If we have provided you with a translation of the English language version of this Agreement, then you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of the Agreement will govern your relationship with us. If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of the Agreement says and what a translation says, then the English language version shall take precedence.

E. We may sub-license, transfer, sell or assign the Agreement, and/or any of our purported obligations hereunder, at any time to any person or entity, with or without notice. You may not sub-license, transfer, sell, or assign the Agreement at any time to any person or entity, and any attempt to do so will be null and void.
