A copy of your Notification will be sent to the person who posted or stored the material addressed in the Notification.

TERM AND TERMINATION
MODIFICATIONS AND INTERRUPTIONS
We may change or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any feature or component of the Service at any time without notice. We are not liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of any feature or component of the Service.
This agreement and all claims relating to the relationship between the parties are governed by the Federal laws and the laws of the State of California, without regard to choice of law provisions. Each party agrees that any claim or cause of action arising under or relating to this Agreement will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction located in the State of California and each party irrevocably consents to such personal jurisdiction and waives all objections thereto. If one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect by any court of competent jurisdiction, such holding will not impair the validity, legality, or enforceability of the remaining provisions.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE SERVICE (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY CONTENT OR MATERIALS OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICE) ARE PROVIDED TO YOU “AS IS” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, WE EXPLICITLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICE (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY CONTENT OR MATERIALS OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICE) WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED OR SECURE BASIS OR BE FREE OF ERRORS OR HARMFUL COMPONENTS. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR ALL DAMAGES THAT MAY RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICE (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY CONTENT OR MATERIALS OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICE) AND YOUR DEALINGS WITH OTHER SERVICE USERS.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND UNDER ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO USD $100.00. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS, DATA, USE, GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICE); (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICE; OR (iii) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN US AND YOU. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless, including our subsidiaries, affiliates, and all of our respective officers, agents, partners, and employees, from and against any loss, damage, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, made by any third party due to or arising out of: (1) your Contributions; (2) use of the Services; (3) breach of these Terms; (4) any breach of your representations and warranties set forth in these Terms; (5) your violation of the rights of a third party, including but not limited to intellectual property rights; or (6) any overt harmful act toward any other user of the Services with whom you connected via the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate, at your expense, with our defense of such claims. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action, or proceeding which is subject to this indemnification upon becoming aware of it.
We will maintain certain data that you transmit to the Services for the purpose of managing the Services, as well as data relating to your or the client’s use of the Services. Although we perform regular routine backups of data, you are solely responsible for all data that you transmit or that relates to any activity you have undertaken using the Services. You agree that we shall have no liability to you for any loss or corruption of any such data, and you hereby waive any right of action against us arising from any such loss or corruption of such data.
When we refer to “Law” in these Terms, we mean any statute, law, ordinance, regulation, rule, judgment or order of a government, court, or tribunal of competent jurisdiction, including, without limitation, any data protection laws, privacy laws, any laws that requires the client to obtain consent from you or provide notice to you in connection with your use of the Product, any state, federal, and international laws, regulations, and rules related to the recording or monitoring of telephone calls, SMS messages, or other communications, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, rules established by the Federal Communications Commission, any federal or state anti-spam statute or regulation, including the CAN SPAM Act of 2003, or any federal or state statute or regulation prohibiting the dissemination of unsolicited communications, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA).
CONSENT TO ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS
These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on the Services constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you, the client, and us. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms operate to the fullest extent permissible by law. We may assign any or all of our rights and obligations to others at any time. We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage, delay, or failure to act caused by any cause beyond our reasonable control. If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. There is no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship created between you and us as a result of these Terms or use of the Services. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against us by virtue of having drafted them. You hereby waive any and all defenses you may have based on the electronic form of these Terms and the lack of signing by the parties hereto to execute these Terms.
