RESERVATION OF RIGHTS

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Subscription Agreement:

 

RELEASE OF LIABILITY

Because authentication on the Internet is difficult, TEAMPHORIA cannot and does not confirm that each Authorized User is who such person claims to be or that their Registration Data is truthful, complete, or accurate. TEAMPHORIA facilitates an exchange of information, which Subscriber authorizes between/ among its Authorized Users. You access or use the Service and take any action concerning the transmission of your Registration Data or other User Content as your voluntary action for which you are exclusively responsible. There is always a certain risk when transmitting such information over the Internet or some other public or proprietary network, and you assume such risk by submitting information to the Service and by making or authorizing transmission to others. If you are a California resident, you waive, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” TEAMPHORIA is under no legal obligation to, and generally does not, control the User Content provided by other Authorized Users or entities, which is made available through the Service. By its very nature, User Content posted or communicated by other Authorized Users may be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or incorrect, and in some cases may be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. You agree to use caution and common sense when using or accessing the Service.

 

WARRANTY DISCLAIMER

YOU AGREE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE IS ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SERVICE AND THE CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, TEAMPHORIA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE AND YOUR USE THEREOF, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, (1) ANY WARRANTIES OF TITLE INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND (2) ANY WARRANTIES CONCERNING THE AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS OF THE CONTENT OR THE SERVICE.

TEAMPHORIA MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY (1) ERRORS, MISTAKES OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT, (2) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICE, (3) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICE AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (4) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE SERVICE, (5) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH THE SERVICE BY ANY THIRD PARTY, AND/OR (6) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT SUBMITTED, POSTED, EMAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICE. TEAMPHORIA DOES NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISED OR OFFERED BY A THIRD PARTY THROUGH THE SERVICE. YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TEAMPHORIA IS IN NOT LIABLE FOR THE DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE, OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF ANY AUTHORIZED USER OR OTHER THIRD PARTY AND THAT THE RISK OF INJURY FROM THE FOREGOING RESTS ENTIRELY WITH YOU.

 

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL TEAMPHORIA, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, MEMBERS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AFFILIATES, CO-BRANDERS, PARTNERS OR TEAMPHORIA CONTENT PROVIDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT (IN EXCESS OF THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY HEREINAFTER PROVIDED), INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS, DATA, OR USE) IN ANY WAY DUE TO, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SERVICE, THE CONTENT, OR THE SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT TEAMPHORIA IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL OR CERTAIN OTHER DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE, CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF TEAMPHORIA FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY SUBSCRIBER FOR THE SERVICE IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE ON WHICH THE CLAIM AROSE.

 

INDEMNITY

You agree, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, to forever hold harmless, defend and indemnify TEAMPHORIA, its members, managers, directors, officers, shareholders, other affiliated persons or entities, employees, contractors, co-branders, partners, agents and other Content providers (“Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all loss, cost, claims, liabilities, damages, disputes, and expenses, including court costs and attorneys’ fees, related to (i) your violation of the Subscription Agreement or any information, software, files, messages or other Content submitted to or made available on the Service, (ii) your use of and/ or access to the Service, (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property or privacy right, or (iv) any claim that your User Content caused damage to or infringes the intellectual property or privacy or other rights of a third party.

In that event, you shall have no further obligation to provide defense to the Indemnified Parties in that matter, but shall remain responsible to reimburse TEAMPHORIA and each Indemnified Party for its defense expenses. This section shall survive the termination or cancellation of the Subscription Agreement or any termination or suspension of your use of or access to all or any aspect of the Service.

 

FEES AND PAYMENT; AUDITS

Some of the Service may require payment of fees. All Service fees are stated in U.S. dollars. Subscriber shall pay all applicable fees, as described in the Subscription Agreement, and any related taxes or additional charges. All fees are non-refundable unless expressly stated otherwise in the Subscription Agreement. All fee-based Services and virtual goods are provided “AS IS” with no warranties of any kind. You understand and agree that the payment for virtual goods grants you a limited license to use the virtual goods as specified on the Service.

In addition to any other rights granted to TEAMPHORIA herein, TEAMPHORIA reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Subscription Agreement and Subscriber’s access to the Service if Subscriber’s account becomes delinquent. Subscriber will be obligated to pay the balance due on account. Subscriber agrees that TEAMPHORIA may charge such unpaid fees and charges to Subscriber’s credit card or ACH. If Subscriber fails to comply with payment schedule, Subscriber will have 30 days to cure payment delinquency before TEAMPHORIA may exercise the right to suspend or terminate the Subscriber’s account. TEAMPHORIA reserves the right to go to collections for any outstanding amounts. TEAMPHORIA may change its prices at any time but will provide you reasonable notice of any such changes by posting the new prices on the Service and by sending you email notification. If you do not wish to pay the new prices, you may cancel the Service prior to the change going into effect. If both TEAMPHORIA and Subscriber have mutually agreed to pricing in Purchase Order for the Service, that document will control the price to be paid.

TEAMPHORIA may audit electronically or otherwise, with or without notice to Subscriber, the number of Authorized Users which utilize or access the Service, as well as the use and location of such Authorized Users. In the event that the number of users is found to be greater than the number licensed, Subscriber will be invoiced for the additional required licenses at TEAMPHORIA’s then-current rates for all fees due, as of the date that each unauthorized access commenced. In addition, Subscriber shall be charged interest at an annualized rate of eighteen percent (18%) of the unpaid fees calculated beginning with the date that the unlicensed access was obtained through the date of payment by the Subscriber, it being understood that Subscriber shall have five (5) business days from the date which TEAMPHORIA provides written notice to Subscriber to provide written notice to TEAMPHORIA that Subscriber is in good faith disputing the audit results (the “Audit Review Period”) and shall have an additional period of ten (10) business days commencing immediately upon the conclusion of the Audit Review Period to resolve any outstanding dispute (the “Audit Resolution Period”) of the audit results, acting reasonably. The parties agree that during the Audit Review Period and the Audit Resolution Period that no interest shall accrue on any disputed amounts.

The Subscription Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and TEAMPHORIA with regard to its subject matter, supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, commitments, representations, writings, and discussions between you and TEAMPHORIA, whether oral or written, and there are no other agreements, representations, warranties, or commitments which may be relied upon by either party. Neither you nor TEAMPHORIA shall be liable hereunder by reason of failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder (except for the non-payment of money) on account of strikes, shortages, riots, insurrection, war, acts of terrorism, fires, flood, storm, explosions, earthquakes, acts of God, governmental action, labor conditions, or similar force majeure events.
