- Disclaimer of certain damages
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will we be liable for any consequential, special, incidental, indirect, or punitive damages of any kind, whether foreseeable or not, arising out of or in any way connected with the site or these terms, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
- Limitation of liability and exclusive remedies
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law and to the extent they are not excluded or disclaimed, our maximum, aggregate liability to you, and your exclusive remedy under these terms for any and all damages, injuries, and losses arising from any and all claims and causes of action arising out of, based on, resulting from, or in any way related to these terms or the site shall be limited to five dollars ($5.00). The existence of multiple claims or suits under or related to these terms or the site will not enlarge or extend the limitation of money damages.
- Independent remedies
The exclusion of damages is independent of your exclusive remedy and it survives even if the exclusive remedy fails of its essential purpose or otherwise is deemed unenforceable. Each of the limitations of liability apply without regard to whether loss, liability, or damage arise from (a) breach of contract, (b) breach of warranty, (c) fault or tort, including negligence and misrepresentation, (d) strict liability, or (e) any other cause of action, to the extent the exclusions and limitations are not prohibited by applicable law.
- Notice on potential limits
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of damages (including incidental or consequential), loss, or liability from intentional acts (including fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, and failure to disclose defects), product liability, or for death or personal injury. Nothing will be interpreted as excluding liability which cannot under applicable law be excluded in those jurisdictions. If you reside, or are otherwise subject to the laws in one of those jurisdictions, any statutory entitlement available to you will be deemed limited to the extent (if at all) permissible under that law and, if limitation is not permitted, the limitations and exclusions in one or more of those Sections may not apply to you.
You hereby agree to defend, indemnify, and hold the Rabie Akela harmless and will keep them indemnified from any third party claims or demands, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, relating to, arising from, or allegedly arising from (a) your use of the Site; (b) any violation by you of these Terms; or (c) your violation of any other party’s rights or applicable law.
