WE DISCLAIM ALL AND MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE QUALITY, IDENTITY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY THIRD-PARTY OR THE ACCURACY OF ANY CONTENT POSTED ON THE SITE BY A THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING ANY USER.
CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
YOUR SOLE REMEDIES HEREUNDER ARE AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION. IN NO EVENT WILL ONGRAVITI OR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATED COMPANIES OR SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THIS SITE OR ANY HYPERLINKED SITE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST REVENUES, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF PROSPECTIVE ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR OTHER DATA ON YOUR SYSTEM OR OTHERWISE ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR MISUSE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY SITE OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, DOCUMENTS OR SOFTWARE THEREOF, EVEN IF ONGRAVITI OR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATED COMPANIES OR SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS ARE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY A THIRD PARTY. YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST ONGRAVITI IS TO DISCONTINUE USE OF THIS SITE AND ANY HYPERLINKED SITES.
If, notwithstanding the limitations of liability, Ongraviti, our affiliates, our licensors or our suppliers are found liable for any loss or damage which arises out of or in any way connected with this Agreement or services or operation of this Site, then liability will in no event exceed the lesser of: (1) $2,500 or (2) any charges retained by Ongraviti with respect to the affected User during the three-month period preceding the date of the origination of the User’s claim.
The above limitations of liability reflect the allocation of risk between the parties, and will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in these Terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose. The limitations of liability provided in these Terms inure to the benefit of Ongraviti, its affiliates and their respective suppliers and licensors.
Certain state laws do not allow exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions or limitations may not apply to you, and you might have other rights, which vary from state to state.
In addition to the recognition that Ongraviti is not a party to any contract between Users, you hereby release Ongraviti, our affiliates and our respective officers, directors, managers, members, employees, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and our and their respective successors and assigns from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any dispute you have with another User, whether it be at law or in equity.
YOU HEREBY WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542 (AND ANY ANALOGOUS LAW IN ANY OTHER APPLICABLE JURISDICTION) WHICH SAYS: “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.”
You shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Ongraviti from and against any and all claims, losses, costs, expenses (including attorneys’ fees), injuries, demands, damages, actions, suits, and/or proceedings whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative (collectively, “Claims”) related to or arising out of: (i) your negligence or willful act or omission; (ii) your misuse of the Site; (iii) your breach of any term, condition, representation, warranty, duty, and/or obligations set forth in the Terms; (iv) any libel or slander by your; and/or (v) infringement of a U.S. patent or U.S. copyright, or unauthorized use of trademark, trade name, or service mark arising out of communications via the Site. You agree to notify Ongraviti promptly, in writing, of any Claims, threatened or actual, and to cooperate in every reasonable way to facilitate the defense or settlement of such Claims.
9. TERM; TERMINATION AND SUSPENSION
This Agreement will become effective upon your first time accessing the Site and will remain in effect until you deactivate your account and discontinue your use of the Site. Unless both you and Ongraviti agree otherwise in writing, either of us may terminate this Agreement in our sole discretion, at any time, without explanation, upon written notice, except as otherwise provided below.
In the event you or Ongraviti properly terminates this Agreement, your right to use the Site is automatically revoked and Ongraviti will close your Account. Without limiting any other provisions of this Agreement, the termination of this Agreement for any reason will not release you from any obligations to Ongraviti incurred prior to termination of this Agreement or that thereafter may accrue in respect of any act or omission prior to such termination.
Without limiting Ongraviti’s other remedies, it may temporarily or indefinitely suspend or permanently revoke your access to the Site if: (a) you breach the letter or spirit of any Terms; (b) Ongraviti suspects or becomes aware that you have provided false or misleading information to Ongraviti or any User; (c) Ongraviti believes, in its sole discretion, that your actions may cause legal liability for you, any Users, or Ongraviti or its affiliates; may be contrary to the interests of the Site or the Ongraviti community; or may involve illicit activity; or (d) Ongraviti otherwise reasonably determines that doing so is in the best interests of Ongraviti and/or its Users.
Once your Account is suspended or closed, you are prohibited from continuing to use the Site under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without Ongraviti’s prior written consent.
Without limiting Ongraviti’s other remedies, if you engage in actions or activities that circumvent the Site, you must pay Ongraviti for all amounts owed to Ongraviti and our affiliates and reimburse Ongraviti for all losses and costs (including any and all time incurred by employees and contractors of Ongraviti or its affiliates) and reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) related to investigating such actions. In addition, violations of this Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, Ongraviti will notify you if it suspends or closes your Account, unless it believes, in its sole judgment, that giving notice may cause damage.
You acknowledge and agree that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site depend on transparency of the Account status of all Users, including both yourself and other. You therefore agree as follows: IF ONGRAVITI DECIDES TO SUSPEND OR CLOSE YOUR ACCOUNT, ONGRAVITI HAS THE RIGHT, BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION, TO (1) INFORM OTHER USERS OF YOUR SUSPENDED OR CLOSED ACCOUNT STATUS, AND (2) PROVIDE THOSE USERS WITH A SUMMARY OF THE REASONS FOR YOUR ACCOUNT SUSPENSION OR CLOSURE. When your Account is closed for any reason, you will no longer have access to data, messages, files, and other material you keep on the Site. If practicable, Ongraviti will retain this information for a period of one year.
10. GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE.
The domestic of the State of Illinois shall govern the construction, interpretation, and performance of this Agreement, without regard to its conflict of law principles. Any litigation or dispute related to this Agreement will be brought in state or federal courts located in Chicago, Illinois, and Users hereby irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose. No party will make a motion to dismiss or transfer any case filed in accordance with this subsection on the basis of improper venue, personal jurisdiction, or for the convenience of any party or witness.
In the event that Ongraviti is deemed the prevailing party in any litigation, Ongraviti shall be entitled to recover from you all costs and expenses incurred by Ongraviti in relation to such legal action, including attorneys’ fees.
If any part of this Policy is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion of this Policy shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of Ongraviti, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of Ongraviti or its suppliers to enforce this Policy, for whatever reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of any right to do so at any time.
PLEASE PRINT THESE TERMS AND RETAIN A COPY FOR YOUR RECORDS.
