KAPOQ AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, PARTNERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SITES, INCLUDING ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AVAILABILITY, SECURITY, ACCURACY, FREEDOM FROM VIRUSES OR MALWARE, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, FUNCTIONALITY, RELIABILITY, SEQUENCING OR SPEED OF DELIVERY. WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS THAT YOUR USE OF THE SITES WILL NOT INFRINGE THE RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES, INCLUDING, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, RIGHTS OF PRIVACY.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE SITES MAY CONTAIN DATA OR THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS, INCLUDING ACCESS TO THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS, PROVIDED TO KAPOQ BY YOU AND/OR A THIRD PARTY. THIS DATA MAY HAVE BEEN COLLECTED BY A THIRD PARTY PURSUANT TO THAT THIRD PARTY’S PRIVACY POLICY AND/OR AN AUTHORIZATION OR CONSENT. KAPOQ AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, PARTNERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY DATA PROVIDED BY YOU AND/OR THIRD PARTIES AND INCLUDED IN THE SITES. EXCEPT AS MAY BE SET FORTH IN AN OTHER AGREEMENT, KAPOQ AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, PARTNERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA PROVIDED TO KAPOQ BY YOU OR A THIRD PARTY AND INCLUDED IN THE SITES.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW AND EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, NEITHER KAPOQ NOR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, PARTNERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR LICENSORS WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY CLAIMS, LIABILITIES, LOSSES, COSTS OR DAMAGES UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, WHETHER IN TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, OR SYSTEM FAILURE, OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES.

Dispute Resolution And Arbitration

In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising from or relating to these Terms of Use, we and you (collectively, the “Parties”) shall use their best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this effect, the Parties shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both Parties. If the Parties do not reach such a solution within a period of thirty (30) days, then all disputes shall be resolved by binding arbitration in Chicago, Illinois, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), subject to the limitations of this section. This agreement to arbitrate will be specifically enforceable in any court having jurisdiction. Notice of a demand for arbitration shall be filed in writing with the other party hereto and with the AAA. The demand for arbitration shall be made within a reasonable time after the dispute has arisen, and in no event shall any such demand be made after the date when the institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such a dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The Parties agree that one (1) arbitrator shall arbitrate the dispute. The arbitrator shall be selected by the joint agreement of the Parties, but if they do not so agree within twenty (20) days after the date of the notice of a demand for arbitration referred to above, the selection shall be made pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA from the panels of business arbitrators maintained by the AAA. The Parties agree that the arbitrator shall have sole authority to decide whether claims brought by either party (excluding claims brought under the following paragraph regarding intellectual property and preliminary equitable relief claims) are subject to this dispute resolution agreement. The decision of the arbitrator shall be made in writing and shall be final. The judgment may be entered upon the decision of the arbitrator in any court having jurisdiction thereof, and the decision shall not be subject to vacation, modification or appeal, except to the extent permitted by sections 10 and 11 of the Federal Arbitration Act, the terms of which sections the Parties agree shall apply. The fees charged by the AAA and arbitrator shall be shared equally by the Parties.

Either party may bring a claim related to intellectual property rights, or seek temporary or preliminary specific performance or temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, in any court of competent jurisdiction, without the posting of bond or other security.

Trial, Free, or Beta Uses and Versions

Notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, if you use a trial, free, or beta version of the Sites, you acknowledge and agree that the Sites are in a beta testing and development phase and accordingly, by using the Sites, you agree to accept all risks of participating as a beta user of the Sites.  The Sites may contain bugs or other errors, including ones which may limit functionality or features, produce errors, render the services unavailable or inoperable, produce incorrect records, transmissions, data or content, or cause records, transmissions, data or content to be corrupted or lost. Notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, during the beta testing and development phase of the Sites, to the maximum extent permitted by law, Kapoq is not liable for any direct or indirect loss, liability, claims, causes of action or damages of any kind, in connection with your or any other person’s use of the Sites or Kapoq’s acts or omissions in connection therewith, and you agree to waive and release Kapoq from, any and all claims, damages and causes of actions in connection with the Sites.

These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to conflicts of law principles.

Miscellaneous

These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof. If any provision of these Terms 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 shall remain in full force and effect. Headings are for reference only and in no way define, limit, construe, or describe the scope or extent of such section. Our failure to act with respect to any failure by you or others to comply with these Terms does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar failures.
