Legal Disclaimer and Limitation on Liability
ACCESS TO THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.
SOLUTRAN AND ITS RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, VENDORS, CONTRACTORS, CONTENT PROVIDERS, RETAILERS AND CONSUMER PRODUCT PARTNERS (COLLECTIVELY, “SERVICE-RELATED PARTIES”) DO NOT MAKE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS, ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN REGARD TO ANY INFORMATION FURNISHED ON OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE SERVICE-RELATED PARTIES DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT ANY INFORMATION ACCESSIBLE ON OR OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY THE SERVICES IS ACCURATE, COMPLETE, OR CURRENT OR THAT ACCESS TO THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. THE SERVICE-RELATED PARTIES DO NOT ENDORSE AND ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY OPINION, ADVICE OR STATEMENT POSTED ON OR OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY THE SERVICES. SUCH INFORMATION DOES NOT CONSTITUTE MEDICAL ADVICE OR CARE.
YOU ASSUME TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE SERVICE-RELATED PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY COMPENSATORY, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, INABILITY TO USE, OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICES. THE SERVICE-RELATED PARTIES SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES OR ANY THIRD-PARTY SITE.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW, YOU HEREBY RELEASE AND FOREVER WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST THE SERVICE-RELATED PARTIES FROM LOSSES OR DAMAGES YOU SUSTAIN IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES OR THEIR CONTENT.
Some states do now allow the forgoing warranty and damage limitations, so the forgoing language 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 permitted by applicable law.
You agree to indemnify and hold the Service-Related Parties harmless from and against any losses, damages, claims, costs, judgments, tax or other regulatory assessments, penalties, interest, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to: (1) any actual or alleged breach of these Terms; (2) your wrongful or improper use of the Services; (3) your violation of any third-party right; (4) your violation of any law, rule or regulation of any state, federal or international government; and (5) any other person or entity’s access to or use of the Services or your Solutran Account with your unique identifiers, passwords or security codes.
Right to Monitor Services/Solutran Account and Terminate Access
Solutran has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any activity related to the Services, including your Solutran Account. Solutran may, without notice to you: (1) disclose information from the Services or your Solutran Account to any third party, including law enforcement agencies, to protect its rights and property in response to legal process, or in a good faith belief that disclosure is justified or required, or in an emergency situation; (2) investigate any reported violation of its policies and complaints, and take any appropriate action it deems appropriate at any time, including without limitation, suspension or termination of access and/or use of the Services and your Solutran Account; and (3) in its sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing or limit access to the Services or your Solutran Account.
Change in Services
Solutran may add or remove, suspend, stop, delete, discontinue, or impose conditions on the Services at any time and without any notice to you.
Ownership and Intellectual Property
All right, title and interest in and to every aspect of the Services are and shall remain the intellectual property and copyrighted works of Solutran. All rights not expressly granted to you with respect to the Services shall be expressly reserved by Solutran.
Except as expressly stated in these Terms, neither the Services, nor any part thereof, may be copied, reproduced, distributed, republished, downloaded, displayed, posted, transmitted or distributed in any form or by any means, including without limitation, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise without the prior written consent of Solutran.
The content on the Services is protected by copyright, trademark and/or other proprietary rights of the Service-Related Parties. They reserve all rights, including copyright, to all content on the Services. Any use of the content on the Services not expressly permitted by the Terms is a breach thereof and may violate copyright, trademark and other laws. All rights not granted by these Terms are reserved to the Service-Related Parties. To obtain permission to use the content other than as expressly provided in these Terms, submit your request in writing to the address provided above at the beginning of these Terms.
Choice of Law
You agree that these Terms of Service or any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether preexisting, present or future, and including statutory, common law and equitable claims) between you and the Service-Related Parties arising from or relating to these Terms of Service, their interpretation or breach, termination or validity, the relationships which result from these Terms of Service, the Service or any related transaction shall, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, be governed by the laws of the state of Minnesota, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules.
You agree to arbitrate any and all disputes by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same individual damages and individual relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST SOLUTRAN. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration). All disputes will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) administered by the American Arbitration Association (https://www.adr.org) according to this Section and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. The Arbitrator shall be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. Any arbitration hearing will occur in Minneapolis, Minnesota, or another mutually agreeable location. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the Parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the Arbitrator may do so only with respect to the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual Party’s claim. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect. If you prevail on any claim for which you are legally entitled to attorney’s fees, you may seek to recover those fees from the arbitrator. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings will be brought in and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in Hennepin County, Minnesota, or federal court for the District of Minnesota. Nothing in this Agreement shall bar a Party from seeking immediate injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction in emergent circumstances, including but not limited to the dissemination of its Intellectual Property.
Limitation of Actions
Any claim, cause of action or other proceeding arising out of or related to the Services, including your Solutran Account, must commence within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action accrues, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary. In the event any such claim or cause of action is not filed within such one (1) year period, such claim or cause of action shall be forever barred.
Solutran’s failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.
The provisions of these Terms survive the expiration or termination of your access to the Services.
