5. Arbitration; Applicable Law
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT IS PART OF YOUR AGREEMENT WITH AXIS AND AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Except for a claim by Axis of infringement or misappropriation of Axis’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret, any and all disputes between You and Axis arising under or related in any way to these Terms, excluding the collection of fees, must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. It includes, but is not limited to, all claims and disputes relating to Your use of the Offering. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $50,000 or less, the AAA, You must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $50,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in Atlanta, Georgia. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state court in Fulton County, Georgia or the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. Claims of infringement or misappropriation of patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall be exclusively brought in the state court in Fulton County, Georgia or Federal District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
The laws of the State of Georgia, excluding its conflicts of law rules that would result in the laws of a State other than Georgia, govern Your use of the Offering.
7. Submitted Ideas—While Axis appreciates Your interest in Axis and the Offering, Axis does not want and cannot accept any ideas or information You consider confidential and/or proprietary. All comments, suggestions, ideas, notes, drawings, concepts, or other information disclosed or offered to Us by You through the Offering or in response to solicitations on the Offering shall be deemed to be non-confidential and non-proprietary and shall be the exclusive property of Axis. Further, You understand and acknowledge that Axis employs both internal and external resources which may have developed or may in the future develop ideas identical to or similar to Your suggestions or comments to suggestions and that Axis is only willing to consider the suggestion on these terms. In any event, You acknowledge and agree that Axis assumes no obligation of confidentiality or nondisclosure, express or implied by considering Your suggestion or idea. You hereby grant Axis a fully paid, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive, and fully sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, perform, display, distribute, adapt, modify, create derivative works of, and otherwise commercially exploit any suggestion, feedback or ideas You submit to Axis.
8. Community Guidelines—The Offering may include certain functionality that allows users to post information, provide feedback and comments, or provide other content (“User Content”). Although Axis may from time to time review User Content, You acknowledge that it is under no obligation to monitor or control, and shall have no liability for, any User Content. You acknowledge that any opinions, statement, recommendation, offers, advice or other information presented or disseminated or contained in User Content are those of their respective authors who are solely responsible and liable for their User Content. Axis reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse to post or remove any User Content at any time, without notice, for any reason or for no reason. In the event You upload, post or otherwise transmit any content, text, information, works of authorship or other materials on or to the Offering (“Your Content”), You shall and hereby do grant Axis a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive right and license to use, license, reproduce, modify, distribute, perform, display, and transmit Your Content for the purposes of providing the Offering to You and other users.
9. Disclaimers—Without limiting the foregoing, the Offering and the Materials and all other features offered via the Offering, are provided to You “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to, fitness for a particular purpose, title, or non-infringement. Should applicable law not permit the foregoing exclusion of express or implied warranties, then Axis hereby grants the minimum express or implied warranty required by such applicable law. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by You from Axis, its employees, agents, suppliers or any other persons shall create any warranty, representation or guarantee not expressly stated in this section. Additionally, Axis does not make any warranties that the Offering will be uninterrupted, secure or error free or that Your use of the Offering will meet Your expectations, or that the Offering, Materials, or any portion thereof, is correct, accurate, or reliable. Axis reserves the right to change any part of the Offering at any time without notice.
10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY—NEITHER AXIS, ITS AFFILIATES, NOR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF DATA, INCOME, PROFIT OR GOODWILL, LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY AND CLAIMS OF THIRD PARTIES ARISING OUT OF YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE OFFERING OR ARISING OUT OF ANY ACTION TAKEN IN RESPONSE TO OR AS A RESULT OF ANY MATERIALS OR OTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE IN THE OFFERING, HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PROPRIETARY RIGHTS INFRINGEMENT, PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE. THE FOREGOING SHALL APPLY EVEN IF AXIS WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST AXIS AND ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES AND LICENSORS ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE OFFERING. BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES, THESE PROVISIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IF ANY PORTION OF THIS LIMITATION ON LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF AXIS AND ITS AFFILIATES SHALL NOT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.) THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY HEREIN IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN AND REFLECTS A FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK. THE OFFERING WOULD NOT BE PROVIDED WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS AND YOU AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMERS AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES SPECIFIED HEREIN WILL SURVIVE EVEN IF FOUND TO HAVE FAILED IN THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
12. In addition to the Axis Content, Axis may provide third party materials as part of the Offering, which You may access in Your sole discretion. Axis shall have no responsibility or liability with respect to Your use of such third-party materials and makes no representation or warranty about those materials. The Offering includes certain open source components that are subject to open source licenses (“Open Source Software”), in which case, the embedded Open Source Software is owned by a third party. The Open Source Software is not subject to the terms and conditions of this Order Agreement. Instead, each item of Open Source Software is licensed under its applicable license terms which accompanies such Open Source Software. Nothing in this Order Agreement limits your rights under, nor grants you rights that supersede, the terms and conditions of any applicable license terms for the Open Source Software. Any fees charged by Axis in connection with the Offering, do not apply to the Open Source Software for which fees may not be charged under the applicable license terms.
13. Assignment—These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by You, but may be assigned by Axis without restriction.
14. Changes to these Terms—From time to time, Axis may revise these Terms. When changes are made, Axis will update the Terms available at the Offering, and will also update the “Last Updated” date above. Any changes to the Terms will be effective immediately for new users of the Offering and will be effective thirty (30) days after posting notice of such changes for existing users. Your use of the Offering following the posting of any revised Terms shall be deemed acceptance of the revised policy. If You disagree with the provisions of these Terms at any time, Your sole remedy is to terminate Your use of the Offering. Continued use of the Offering constitutes Your agreement to these Terms as in effect.
15. Miscellaneous—Axis’ failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of the Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. These Terms are the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matter. These terms are in addition to, and a supplement of, the terms of the Subscription Agreement between Axis and You. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the Subscription Agreement, the Terms shall control unless, in Axis' sole discretion, it determines to apply the terms and conditions of the Subscription Agreement.
