5. Disclaimers and Warranties

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SYNGIN DOES NOT MAKE ANY PROMISE, REPRESENTATION, GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SUFFICIENCY OF THE PRODUCT AND THE SERVICES TO BE PROVIDED HEREUNDER BY SYNGIN.

The information presented on or through the Product, including any information provided to you which is requested through the Product (such as reports ordered, or based on information gathered, via the Product), is made available for general information purposes. While Syngin will endeavor to provide you with information that it believes to be accurate based on the information and data provided by you, Syngin cannot and does not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of this information. Any reliance you place on the information presented to you on or through the Product, including any information provided to you which is requested or received through the Product, is strictly at your own risk. We disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by you or any other visitor to the Product, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.

You acknowledge and agree that any and all representations, promises, warranties or statements by Syngin’s salesperson, representative or agent that differ in any way from the terms hereof shall be given no force or effect. If Syngin furnishes you with any advice or assistance concerning any products, systems or work which is not required pursuant to these Terms, the furnishing of such advice or assistance shall not subject Syngin to any liability whatsoever to you, whether in contract, in tort (including negligence), under warranty or otherwise.

YOUR USE OF THE PRODUCT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE PRODUCT IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE. NEITHER SYNGIN NOR ANY PERSON ASSOCIATED WITH SYNGIN MAKES ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO THE COMPLETENESS, SECURITY, RELIABILITY, QUALITY, ACCURACY OR AVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICES, THE PRODUCT, THE PRODUCT CONTENT, OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, NEITHER SYNGIN NOR ANYONE ASSOCIATED WITH SYNGIN REPRESENTS OR WARRANTS THAT THE PRODUCT OR ITS CONTENTS WILL BE ACCURATE, RELIABLE, ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, THAT THE PRODUCT OR SERVICES THAT MAKE THE PRODUCT AVAILABLE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS OR THAT THE PRODUCT OR ANY SERVICES OBTAINED THROUGH THE PRODUCT WILL OTHERWISE MEET YOUR NEEDS OR EXPECTATIONS. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE PRODUCT REMAINS SOLELY WITH YOU, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

ANY PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES DESCRIBED ON THE PRODUCT ARE OFFERED IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE THEY MAY BE LEGALLY OFFERED. THE INFORMATION ON THE PRODUCT IS NOT AN OFFER OR SOLICITATION BY ANYONE IN ANYONE IN ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH AN OFFER OR SOLICITATION CANNOT LEGALLY BE MADE, OR TO ANY PERSON TO WHOM IT IS UNLAWFUL TO MAKE A SOLICITATION.

6. Limitation of Liability

IN NO EVENT WILL SYNGIN BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OTHER THAN ACTUAL AND DIRECT DAMAGES PROVEN EITHER IN A COURT OF LAW OR THROUGH ARBITRATION. IN NO EVENT SHALL SYNGIN’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE PRICE YOU PAID FOR THE SERVICE THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE CLAIM. IF ANY PART OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF SYNGIN AND ITS LICENSORS SHALL NOT EXCEED TEN US DOLLARS.

Without limiting the foregoing, you understand and acknowledge that Syngin shall not be liable to you for:

  1. Any indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive or exemplary losses which may be incurred by you arising out of your use of, or inability to use, the Product or the Services, including any loss of profit (whether incurred directly or indirectly), any loss of goodwill or business reputation, or any loss of data suffered by you; or
  2. Any loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of:
    1. any reliance placed by you on the completeness, accuracy, or existence of any information or materials made available through the Product;
    2. any changes that Syngin may make to the Product or Services, or for any permanent or temporary cessation in the provision of the Product or Services (or any features within the Product or Services);
    3. the deletion of, corruption of, unauthorized access to, or failure to store, any content and other communications data maintained or transmitted by or through your use of the Product or the Services;
    4. the use of any products or services obtained on or through the Product; or
    5. any other matter relating to the Product, the Services, the Product Content, or the User Content.

The limitations on Syngin’s liability to you in this Section 6 shall apply whether or not Syngin has been advised of or should have been aware of the possibility of any such losses arising.

IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE PRODUCT, THE SERVICES, OR THESE TERMS, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE PRODUCT.

7. Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Syngin, its parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, shareholders, members, employees, agents, affiliates, licensors and suppliers, from and against all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorneys’ fees) arising from:

  1. your use of and access to the Product and Services;
  2. your violation of any of these Terms;
  3. your violation of any third party rights, including intellectual property or privacy rights; and
  4. the use of the Product by any person using your account or account login. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive the termination or cessation of these Terms and your use of the Product. Syngin reserves the right, at Syngin’s own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you hereunder, and you shall cooperate in all reasonable respects in such defense. You may not settle any claim that is referenced or otherwise covered by this Section 7 without the prior written consent of Syngin.

8. Arbitration

You and Syngin agree that any disputes arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of the Product and/or the Services, including disputes arising from or concerning their interpretation, violation, invalidity, non-performance, or termination, which cannot be resolved informally, shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before one (1) arbitrator; provided, however, in the event that the dispute involves an allegation of liability in excess of $250,000 USD, three (3) arbitrators shall be used. Any dispute arising out of these Terms shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual; and an arbitrator must also follow and enforce these Terms, as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Arbitration shall take place in Tampa, Florida, unless Syngin elects otherwise.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Syngin users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Syngin user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.

You acknowledge and agree that you and Syngin are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. You further acknowledge and agree that you waive your right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Syngin otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.

In the event this Section 8 is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 8 will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this Section 8 will survive termination of the Terms and your use of the Product.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.

9. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

All matters relating to the Product, the Services, and these Terms and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Florida without giving effect to its choice or conflict of law provisions or rules.

Subject to the arbitration requirements set forth herein, to the extent that any legal suit, action or proceeding arises out of, or relates to, these Terms, the Privacy Policy, the Product, or the Services, such suit shall be instituted exclusively in the state and federal courts located in Tampa, Florida. You waive any objection to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

10. Operation of the Product and United States Law

The Product is controlled and operated from within the United States. Without limiting anything else, Syngin makes no representation that the Product, Product Content, User Content, services, products, information, or other materials available on, in, or through the Product is appropriate or available for use outside the United States, and access to them from territories where they are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Product from outside the United States do so on their own will and are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.

11. Notice of Infringing Content

While we are under no legal obligation to actively screen or edit User Content, we reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to modify, edit or remove any User Content, or to request a user to modify or edit his or her User Content, if a complaint or notice of allegedly infringing materials is received with respect to the User Content, or for any other reason.

To complain about User Content and/or to provide notice of allegedly infringing materials on the Product, please contact us using the contact information provided above.

12. Miscellaneous

These Terms, including the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire legal agreement between you and Syngin regarding the Product and govern your use of the Product, Services, and any transactions you may have with Syngin through the Product. These Terms completely replace and supersede any prior agreement or understanding, arrangement, undertaking, or proposal, written or oral, between you and Syngin regarding these matters. In the event any other rule, code of conduct, or other matter posted on the Product conflicts with these Terms, these Terms shall govern. No oral explanation or oral information given by any party shall alter the interpretation of these Terms.

You understand that Syngin may make changes to these Terms from time to time. Your continued use of the Product following the posting of changes to these Terms will be considered your consent to those changes. When these changes are made, Syngin will make a new copy of the Terms available on the Product. You agree that Syngin is under no obligation to provide you with notices regarding changes to these Terms. You understand that it is your responsibility to check the Terms regularly for changes.

You agree that any failure or delay by Syngin to exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy contained in or made available by these Terms (or that Syngin has the benefit of under any applicable law) will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Syngin’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Syngin. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide a matter arising out of these Terms, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from these Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms and the remaining provisions will continue to be valid and enforceable.

You hereby acknowledge and agree that we reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the whole, or any part of, the Product and the Services, without notice, and that we will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, to you or any other person or entity for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of any such modifications or discontinuance.

These Terms are binding upon you, your heirs, executors, beneficiaries, successors and assigns and you may not assign these Terms to any other party without our prior written consent, which consent may be withheld in our sole and absolute discretion.
