- WAIVER OF SUBROGATION
You should protect against any risk of loss with the appropriate insurance coverage, and you are responsible for obtaining all insurance coverage you believe is necessary. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND THE APPLICABLE POLICY OR POLICIES OF INSURANCE YOU OBTAIN AND MAINTAIN, YOU RELEASE Anyword AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS FROM ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY LOSS, OCCURRENCE, EVENT OR CONDITION COVERED BY YOUR INSURANCE.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT SHALL Anyword OR ANY OF ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SHAREHOLDERS, PARTNERS, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CLAIM, LOSS, DAMAGE, ACTION, SUIT OR OTHER PROCEEDING ARISING UNDER OR OUT OF THE SERVICES OR THE SITE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, WHETHER THE ACTION IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR OTHERWISE.
IN EVERY EVENT, Anyword’S TOTAL MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY YOU TO Anyword UNDER THESE TERMS DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM.
THE CONSIDERATION BEING PAID HEREUNDER DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY CONSIDERATION FOR Anyword TO ASSUME ANY RISKS BEYOND THOSE EXPRESSLY ASSUMED HEREIN AND IF ANY SUCH RISKS WERE TO BE ASSUMED BY Anyword, Anyword WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT CHARGING SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER FEES.
SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
- FEES AND PAYMENT
Certain Services and the Site may be provided for a fee. You shall pay all applicable fees regarding the Services selected by you, and access to the Site, in accordance with the terms of sale for such Services and access and any payment terms contained in any applicable Insertion Order. All amounts and fees due for the Services and the Site: (1) shall be payable in US Dollars; (2) are non-cancellable and non-refundable; and (3) are exclusive of all taxes, which shall be added to Anyword’s invoice(s) at the appropriate rate. You agree to make all payments without set-off or counterclaim and free and clear of any withholding or deduction (save as required by law) for any present or future taxes, levies, imposts, duties, or other charges. If you are obligated by law to make any such withholding or deduction, you will pay to Anyword in the same manner any additional amounts to ensure that we receive a net amount equal to the full amount which we would have received if no such deduction or withholding had been required. Unless otherwise agreed in the signed Insertion Order, any invoices issued will be payable within thirty (30) days from the date of such invoice. If we have not received payment within fifteen (15) days after the due date of such payment, we may, without liability, suspend your access to the Services until payment has been made in full and interest shall accrue on due and unpaid amounts at a monthly rate of 1%, commencing on the due date and continuing until fully paid, whether before or after judgment.
- GOVERNING LAW AND ARBITRATION
These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York and the United States of America, without regards to their respective principles of conflicts of law. Any disputes relating to these Terms or any applicable Insertion Order will – if it cannot be resolved informally by you and us – be resolved solely and exclusively by arbitration in New York City, New York under the then current rules of the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules (including the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection), and judgment upon the award entered by the arbitrator may be entered in any Court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted before one (1) neutral arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association. Costs of arbitration, including attorney’s fees in arbitration, as determined by the arbitrator, with attorney’s fees incurred by the prevailing party in Court enforcement of the arbitration award after the arbitrator renders it, must be paid to the prevailing party by the part designated by the arbitrator or Court. Either you or Anyword may apply to the arbitrator seeking injunctive relief until the arbitration award is rendered or the controversy is otherwise resolved. Either your or Anyword also may, without waiving any remedy under these Terms, seek from any court having jurisdiction, any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party, pending the establishment of the arbitral tribunal (or pending the arbitral tribunal’s determination of the merits of the controversy). Should Anyword or you either dismiss or abandon their claim or counterclaim before the hearing, the other party will be deemed the “prevailing party” under these terms. Should both parties receive judgment or award on their respective claims, the party in whose favor the larger judgment or award is rendered will be deemed the “prevailing party” under these Terms.
