Violation of the Terms and Conditions

We will have no liability to you for any deletion of your User Content. License Granted by You
Limitation of Liability
YOU AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS EXPLICITLY SET FORTH HEREIN, ACTIVEPACKETS, ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, SUCCESSORS, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF DAMAGES RELATED IN ANY WAY TO OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU (INCLUDING OUR PRODUCTS, SERVICES, OR SITE CONTENT) OR THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS OR WEB SITES: INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, DATA OR USE, INCURRED BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT OR TORT, RELATED TO OUR PRODUCTS OR YOUR ACCESS TO, AND USE OF, OUR SITES OR ANY OTHER HYPER-LINKED THIRD PARTY WEB SITE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF, OR ARE AWARE OF, THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
NOTWITHSTANDING THE ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY, OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED IN ANY WAY TO OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU (INCLUDING OUR PRODUCTS, SERVICES, OR SITE CONTENT), OR THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS OR WEB SITES (FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION), WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID TO ACTIVEPACKETS FOR THE APPLICABLE TRANSACTION GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY, OR, IF THERE IS NO PAID TRANSACTION RELATED TO THE LIABILITY, THE LESSER OF THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO ACTIVEPACKETS IN THE PRIOR TWELVE (12) MONTHS AND FIFTY DOLLARS ($50).
Because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. If any applicable authority holds any portion of this section to be unenforceable, then liability will be limited to the fullest extent of applicable law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent the Dispute arises from a violation of your or Activepackets’s intellectual property rights in any manner, both parties agree that the non-infringing party may seek injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in a state or federal court consistent with the “Governing Law” section below, and both parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Waiver of Class Arbitration: To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, all Disputes shall be resolved by binding confidential arbitration on an individual basis. You expressly agree that no other Disputes shall be consolidated or joined with your Dispute, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise (“Class Arbitration”). You further acknowledge and agree that any arbitrator assigned to a Dispute lacks the authority to conduct Class Arbitration and that such arbitrator shall only hear individual Disputes. By using the Sites, you acknowledge that you are voluntarily and knowingly waiving any right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to any Dispute subject to arbitration under these Terms and Conditions, such that you shall not be entitled to arbitrate any Dispute as a representative, a class action or in a private attorney general capacity.
Governing Law: These Terms and Conditions and all Disputes shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of New York, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within New York between New York residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. Further in any arbitration, both parties agree the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized under New York law.
Enforcement of Arbitration Award: The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties subject to these Terms and Conditions, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Severability: If any portion of this “Dispute Resolution” section (with the exception of your Waiver of Class Arbitration) is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, the invalid or unenforceable portion shall be severed and removed from the Terms and Conditions, and the remaining portions (including your Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes) shall remain binding on you and Activepackets.
However, if any arbitrator deems your Waiver of Class Arbitration to be invalid or unenforceable, then this entire “Dispute Resolution” section shall be null and void. Under such circumstances, you expressly acknowledge and agree that: (i) all Disputes shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of New York as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within New York between New York residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions; (ii) all Disputes shall be resolved by a state or federal court located in the county of San Diego, New York; and (iii) you will submit to the personal jurisdiction of such New York state or federal courts for the purposes of litigating such Disputes.
Put differently, you agree that your Waiver of Class Arbitration cannot be severed from your Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, you expressly acknowledge and agree that it is your intent and the intent of Activepackets not to proceed with any Dispute by way of Class Arbitration.
Outside the United States
We make no representations that the Site Content is appropriate for access outside the United States. Those who choose to access any one of our Sites from outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws. If any provision within the Terms and Conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and all remaining provisions shall be enforced.
By using any one of our Sites, you agree to indemnify and hold Activepackets, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents and other partners and employees, harmless from any loss, liability, claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of such Site, including providing a link to another site or any User Content or your violation of these Terms and Conditions.
If any provision of the Terms and Conditions is held to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall nevertheless continue in full force and effect and the invalid, void, or unenforceable provision shall be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by the law.
Other General Provisions
Section titles in the Terms and Conditions are for convenience and do not define, limit, or extend any provision of the Terms and Conditions. As used herein, the term “including” means “including without limitation”. Our failure to enforce any right or provision shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Neither party is the agent or partner of the other party. These Terms and Conditions may not be assigned by you without our prior written consent and any attempted assignment in violation of the foregoing shall be null and void. We may assign any of our rights under these Terms and Conditions without your prior written consent, to any third party. The terms of these Terms and Conditions shall be binding upon permitted assignees.
