8.2 Active Data represents and warrants that the Service shall operate substantially in accordance with the current documentation provided by Active Data; provided, however, that the foregoing warranty is expressly contingent (and shall otherwise be void) upon use of the Services strictly in accordance with Active Data’s specifications and without misuse, damage, alteration, or unauthorized modification thereto. As your exclusive remedy for any defect, non-conformity or other Error in a Service during these Terms, you may obtain Support services from Active Data for the support, repair or replacement of the Service containing such defect, non-conformity or Error. Active Data may repair or replace any code or other issue causing any Error in the Service. The foregoing constitutes your sole and exclusive remedy for breach by Active Data of any warranties regarding defects, non-conformities or other Errors in a Service.
8.3 Active Data warrants during these Terms to the best of Active Data’s actual knowledge, the Service does not infringe any valid patents, copyrights, trademarks, or other proprietary rights of any third parties. Active Data shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless each Customer, its officers, agents, and employees from and against any claim, loss, damage, or expense (including court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees) brought in a court or other tribunal in the United States by an unaffiliated third party against Customer and arising out of any breach of this subsection which results directly from Customer’s own internal use of the Service in compliance with these Terms.
8.4 Active Data’s indemnity provided under this Section shall not apply to any claim of infringement if (i) Customer is using a form of the Service that has been modified without Active Data’s approval, to the extent such claimed infringement could have been avoided by use of an unmodified form of the Service; or (ii) the Service has been combined, operated or used with other software or data supplied without Active Data’s prior written approval, to the extent such claimed infringement could have been avoided by the use of the Service without such other software or data.
8.5 Customer warrants during these Terms (i) to the best of Customer’s actual knowledge, the Content does not and will not infringe any valid patents, copyrights, trademarks, or other proprietary rights of any third parties; (ii) any and all sales of Tickets or other Products will not violate any applicable laws or regulations; (iii) Customer shall be responsible for the assessment, collection and remittance of all sales and other taxes generated by the sales of Tickets and other Products; and (iv) the actions or omissions of Customer, its Administrators, Organizers, Users and Visitors shall not breach these Terms or infringe or breach the rights of any third party. Customer shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Active Data, its officers, agents, employees, and authorized contractors from and against any claim, loss, damage, or expense (including court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees) brought in a court or other tribunal by an unaffiliated third party against Active Data and arising out of any breach of this subsection.
8.6 Anyone seeking indemnification (each, an “indemnitee”) shall provide the indemnifying party (the “indemnitor”) with (i) prompt written notice of the existence of such claim, suit, action or proceeding; (ii) sole control over the defense or settlement of such claim; and (iii) assistance at the indemnitor’s request to the extent reasonably necessary for the defense or settlement of such claim or suit. Once the indemnitor has assumed the defense of an indemnitee, the indemnitee may nevertheless choose counsel to represent the indemnitee and participate in the defense or settlement of the claim in an advisory capacity, but solely at the indemnitee’s expense. The indemnitor may not settle or compromise a claim against an indemnitee by admitting liability or assessing damages on behalf of the indemnitee without the indemnitee’s prior written permission.
8.7 THE INDEMNIFICATION PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS CONSTITUTE ACTIVE DATA’S SOLE LIABILITY, AND THE SOLE RECOURSE OF EACH CUSTOMER, ADMINISTRATOR, ORGANIZER, USER, VISITOR AND BUYER IN RESPONSE TO ANY ALLEGATION OF ANY INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS BY THE SERVICES OR ACTIVE DATA.
EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS, EACH SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, AND ACTIVE DATA DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. ACTIVE DATA DOES NOT WARRANT OR REPRESENT THAT ANY SERVICE WILL BE FREE FROM ERRORS, OR THAT ITS USE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT THE SERVICE WILL WORK WITH ANY SOFTWARE, DATA OR EQUIPMENT, OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE, OR THE RESULTS OF THE USE, OF THE SERVICE IN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR OTHERWISE. IN NO EVENT SHALL ACTIVE DATA BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF ANY SERVICE OR THESE TERMS, HOWEVER CAUSED, EVEN IF ACTIVE DATA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OR LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES. ACTIVE DATA SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE WHATSOEVER OR HOWSOEVER CAUSED ARISING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE, OR ANY COMPONENTS THEREOF, OR OTHERWISE, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS. ACTIVE DATA WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR ANY SERVICE THAT CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY HAS ATTEMPTED TO MODIFY.
The liability of Active Data under these Terms for any claim whatsoever related to any Service or these Terms, including any cause of action sounding in contract, tort, or strict liability, shall not exceed the greater of the total amount of fees paid by Customer to Active Data hereunder in the one-year period next preceding the claim. Active Data shall not be liable to you or any other person or entity (or anyone claiming under or through you or any other person or entity) for incidental, indirect, special or punitive damages arising from these Terms (including loss of profits, use, data or economic advantage) regardless of whether previously advised of the possibility of such damages, claims or demands.
Customer shall pay Active Data’s non-refundable Service fees in the amounts and on the terms set forth in Active Data’s current Fee Schedule. Most Ticket and other Product fees are deducted from the revenue generated by the Ticket or other Product. Customer shall pay all applicable sales, use, personal property, and other similar taxes associated with the rights granted and the Services provided pursuant to these Terms, except for taxes based on Active Data’s income, net worth or assets, which shall be the sole responsibility of Active Data. Active Data is permitted to exempt Customer from any applicable sales or use taxes only upon receipt of a tax exemption certificate or other documentation reasonably acceptable to Active Data in accordance with applicable law, and Active Data may require Customer to update or provide current certificates or other documentation periodically. Payment in full of any invoice is due the later of Customer’s receipt of the invoice or the due date stated on the invoice. If Active Data does not receive payment in full of any Fees when due, then Active Data in its sole discretion may terminate your account with Active Data.
Each of Customer and Active Data reserves the right to assign its rights under these Terms effective upon written notice received by the other party.
These Terms are effective upon signing by Customer and acceptance by Active Data. These Terms shall continue unless and until terminated upon (a) Customer breaches any material obligation of these Terms, or (b) either party terminates these Terms upon written notice to the other party for any reason or for no reason. Within ten (10) calendar days after termination of these Terms, Customer shall download all of the Customer’s Content from the Services, as we may destroy any of your Content remaining on the Service after that date. Upon termination, Customer shall immediately pay any overdue Fees or other amounts due, and shall pay within ten business days any other Fees or other amounts. Active Data shall have no liability for any termination under this section.
All license and Service provisions of these Terms shall terminate upon termination of these Terms. All accrued but not paid Fee obligations and provisions, and all provisions used to construe each party’s rights under applicable law (including this provision) shall survive in accordance with their terms.
All notices, demands, or consents required or permitted under these Terms shall be in writing and shall be deemed delivered when sent: (a) personally; (b) by facsimile (if followed by first class mail); (c) by mutually recognized overnight carrier, including, but not limited to, D.H.L., Federal Express, Airborne, UPS Overnight and Priority Mail; (d) by certified or registered mail to the other party; or (e) by email to the other party.
If any provision or provisions of these Terms shall be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. Without limiting the foregoing, it is expressly agreed and understood that each and every provision of these Terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended by the parties to be severable and independent of any other provision and to be enforced as such. Further, it is expressly understood and agreed that in the event any remedy hereunder is determined to have failed of its essential purpose, all other limitations of liability and exclusion of damages set forth herein shall remain in full force and effect.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the federal laws of the United States of America, as an agreement made therein, without reference to any conflicts of laws provisions or policies. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to these Terms. Any dispute between the parties that cannot be amicably resolved shall be determined by one arbitrator in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules and its Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection. The arbitrator shall decide the arbitration on the submission of documents, by audio conference and video conference. The parties and the witnesses shall not be required to travel to enter testimony or evidence. The award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties, and may be entered and enforced in any court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction.
The parties to these Terms are independent contractors and are not agents or representatives of each other. Each party represents that it is acting on its own behalf and is not acting as an agent for or on behalf of any third party. Neither party shall misstate or misrepresent its relationship hereunder. Nothing in these Terms shall be construed to give either party the power to direct or control the daily activities of the other party, or to constitute the parties as principal and agent, employer and employee, franchisor and franchisee, partners, co-owners, joint venturers, or otherwise as participants in a joint undertaking. The parties understand and agree that, except as specifically provided in these Terms, neither party is granted the power or authority to make or give any agreement, statement, representation, warranty, or other commitment on behalf of the other party, or to enter into any contract or otherwise incur any liability or obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other party, or to transfer, release, or waive any right, title, or interest of the other party.
No party shall, by mere lapse of time, without giving notice or taking other action hereunder, be deemed to have waived any breach by the other party of any of the provisions of these Terms. Further, the express waiver by either party of a particular breach of these Terms shall not be construed as nor constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or of breaches of the same or other provisions of these Terms.
No party will be deemed in default of these Terms to the extent that performance of their obligations or attempts to cure any breach are delayed or prevented by reason of any acts of God, fire, natural disaster, accident, war, riot, act of government or civil or military authorities, or any other unforeseen circumstance or cause beyond the reasonable control of such party (“Force Majeure”). However, Force Majeure does not apply to any payment obligations, any inability to obtain sufficient labor resources, or any obligation that may be reasonably carried out despite unforeseen circumstances. Each party claiming a Force Majeure must give the other party prompt written notice thereof and, in any event, within fifteen (15) calendar days of discovery thereof and uses its good faith efforts to cure the breach promptly. In the event of such a Force Majeure event, the time for performance or cure will be extended for a period equal to the duration of the Force Majeure event but not in excess of a total of sixty (60) days.
The parties hereto acknowledge that these Terms, including any Schedules, are the complete and exclusive statement of agreement respecting the subject matter hereto and supersede all prior understandings and other communications between the parties relating hereto. Except as expressly stated in these Terms, any additional or contradictory terms or conditions of any purchase order, accounting report or communication between the parties, or any other document, shall be of no effect unless signed in hard copy by both parties.
