7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
SOME COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY IN CONTRACTS WITH CONSUMERS AND AS A RESULT THE CONTENTS OF THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. Neither FieldLevel nor any of our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, shareholders, or directors (“FieldLevel Affiliates”) shall be cumulatively liable for (a) any damages in excess of five times the most recent monthly fee that you paid for a Premium Service, if any, or US $100, whichever amount is greater, or (b) any special, incidental, indirect, punitive or consequential damages or loss of use, profit, revenue or data to you or any third person arising from your use of the Services, any Apps or any of the content or other materials on, accessed through or downloaded as part of the Services. This limitation of liability is part of the basis of the bargain between the parties and without it FieldLevel would not make the Services available to you. This limitation of liability shall:
a. Apply regardless of whether (1) you base your claim on contract, tort, statute or any other legal theory, (2) we knew or should have known about the possibility of such damages, or (3) the limited remedies provided in this section fail of their essential purpose; and
b. Not apply to any damage that FieldLevel may cause you intentionally or knowingly in violation of this Agreement or applicable law, or as otherwise mandated by applicable law that cannot be disclaimed in this Agreement.
c. Not apply if you have entered into a separate agreement to purchase Premium Services with a separate Limitation of Liability provision that supersedes this section in relation to those Premium Services.
a. Mutual rights of termination.
You may terminate this Agreement, for any or no reason, at any time, by visiting your account page and canceling your account or by providing notice to FieldLevel pursuant to Section 10.i. This notice will be effective upon FieldLevel processing your notice. FieldLevel may terminate the Agreement and your account for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice. This cancellation shall be effective immediately or as may be specified. For avoidance of doubt, only FieldLevel or the party paying for the Services may terminate your access to any Premium Services. Termination of your FieldLevel account may include disabling your access to the Services and may also bar you from any future use of the Services.
b. Misuse of the Services.
FieldLevel may restrict, suspend or terminate the account of any User who abuses or misuses the Services. Misuse of the Services includes inviting other Users with whom you do not know to connect, abusing any FieldLevel messaging services; creating multiple or false profiles; using the Services commercially without FieldLevel’s authorization, infringing any intellectual property rights or any other behavior that FieldLevel, in its sole discretion, deems contrary to its purpose. In addition, and without limiting the foregoing, FieldLevel may terminate accounts of Users who, in FieldLevel’s sole discretion, are deemed to be infringers under the United States Copyright Act. Please see our Copyright Policy
regarding how we respond to claims of copyright infringement involving materials appearing on our website or as part of the Services.
c. Effect of Termination.
Upon the termination of your FieldLevel account, you lose access to the Services. Any and all provisions or obligations contained in this Agreement which by their nature or effect are required or intended to be observed, kept or performed after termination of this Agreement will survive the termination of this Agreement, except Sections 4 ("Your Rights") and 5.a-b, and d ("Our Rights and Obligations") hereof.
9. DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
Before either party may seek arbitration as provided below, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. After the Notice is received, you and FieldLevel may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and the FieldLevel do not resolve the claim or dispute within 30 days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding as provided below.
Except as provided herein, you and FieldLevel agree that the parties will resolve any disputes through binding arbitration instead of through court proceedings. All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and FieldLevel relating to the Services or this Agreement (each a "Legal Claim") shall be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an available alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) and the rules of such provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration. The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs, documents, or other evidence submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.
For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, you and FieldLevel must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration will be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in Santa Clara County, California.
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, FieldLevel will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator's fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and FieldLevel also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and FieldLevel retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with this Agreement, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in this Agreement.
Neither you nor FieldLevel may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Legal Claim. Legal Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or FieldLevel's individual Legal Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
If any provision of this Section 9 is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section 9 shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section 9 will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement.
