THE STORM8 PARTIES (AS DEFINED BELOW) HEREBY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE, THE SERVICE MATERIALS AND ANY AND ALL USER CONTENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, THE STORM8 PARTIES MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT (a) THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR THE SERVICE MATERIALS OR USER CONTENT WILL BE VIEWABLE TO YOU; (b) THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE OR THAT ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR (c) THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICE OR ANY SERVICE MATERIALS OR USER CONTENT WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE.

THE “STORM8 PARTIES” ARE COMPRISED OF STORM8 AND ITS AFFILIATES AND SUBSIDIARIES, AND EACH OF THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS AND LICENSORS.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL THE STORM8 PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF REVENUES, LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE SERVICE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT ANY STORM8 PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SERVICE IS TO STOP USING THE SERVICE. 

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain types of damages.  Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you.  To the extent that Storm8 or any other Storm8 Party may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any warranty or limit its liability as set forth herein, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of Storm8’s and such Storm8 Party’s liability shall be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.

O. Links to External Locations and Third Party Websites:

The Service may contain links to third-party websites or resources. You acknowledge and agree that Storm8 is not responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such websites or resources; or (ii) the content, products, or services on or available from such websites or resources. Links to such websites or resources do not imply any endorsement by Storm8 of such websites or resources or the content, products, or services available from such websites or resources.  You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any such websites or resources.  Storm8 may remove any links at any time for any reason or for no reason.

P. Indemnification:
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Storm8 Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) made by a third party due to or arising from (1) information in your Account and any information you (or anyone accessing the Service using your password) submit, post or transmit through the Service, (2) your (or anyone accessing the Service using your password) use of the Service, (3) your (or anyone accessing the Service using your password) violation of these Terms of Use or any applicable Additional Terms of Use or Third Party Agreements, and (4) your (or anyone accessing the Service using your password) violation of any rights of any other person or entity.
Q. Governing Law and Remedies:  
These Terms of Use and any action related thereto or to the Service will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.  The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any action with respect to the subject matter of these Terms of Use will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California, and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. The parties specifically disclaim application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.  You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made to Storm8 under these Terms of Use are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which may result in immediate and irreparable harm to Storm8 for which remedies at law are inadequate.  Storm8 shall therefore be entitled to seek injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligation to post any bond or surety) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you.  You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief.

R. Miscellaneous:
You agree to be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware mobile devices and other equipment needed for access to and use of the Service, and all charges related thereto.

Storm8 operates and controls the Service from its offices in the United States. Storm8 makes no representation that the Service is appropriate or available in other locations.  The information and materials provided on the Service are not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Storm8 to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.  Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

Portions of the Service may be subject to United States export controls. You agree to comply with such export controls, as well as similar such controls in any applicable jurisdiction.  Without limiting the foregoing, you agree that no software from the Service may be downloaded, exported or re-exported (a) into (or to a national or resident of) Cuba, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Syria, or any other country to which the United States has embargoed goods; or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department's Table of Deny Orders. By downloading any software or applicable portion of the Service, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of, any such country or on any such list.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and Storm8 as a result of these Terms of Use or your use of the Service. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and Storm8 with respect to your use of the Service and any other subject matter hereof and cannot be changed or modified by you except as expressly posted on the Service by Storm8.  The failure of Storm8 to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision, and no waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.  If any provision of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect.  Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms of Use.  These Terms of Use may not be assigned by you without Storm8's prior written consent, but are freely assignable by Storm8.  The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.  Upon Storm8's request, you will furnish Storm8 any documentation, substantiation or releases necessary to verify your compliance with these Terms of Use.  You agree that these Terms of Use will not be construed against Storm8 by virtue of having drafted them. You hereby waive any and all defenses you may have based on the electronic form of these Terms of Use and the lack of signing by the parties hereto to execute these Terms of Use.

You agree that the following sections of these Terms of Use will survive any termination of these Terms of Use, your Account or the Service:  Section F (Service Materials, Ownership, Trademarks and Feedback), Section H (Your Content), Section L (Termination), Section M (Disputes with Others), Section N (Disclaimers of Warranties and Damages, Limitations of Liability), Section P (Indemnification), Section Q (Governing Law and Remedies and Section R (Miscellaneous).
