8. Our Intellectual Property
All copyrights, trademarks, trade dress, other intellectual property and materials, including images, text, illustrations, formats, logos, designs, icons, photographs, programs, music clips, video clips and written and other materials on or part of the Sites and Services (collectively, the “IP”) are owned, controlled or licensed by us and are protected by U.S. and international trademark and copyright laws. The absence of our name or logo does not constitute a waiver of our trademark or other intellectual property rights relating to such name or logo. All other product names, company names, marks, logos, and symbols appearing on the Sites or Services may be the trademarks and the property of their respective owners. Software used as part of the Sites and Services is our property or our suppliers’ property and is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.
Subject to your strict compliance with these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable license to access, view, download, and print the materials displayed on the Sites and Services for your use and access only; provided, however, that you (i) retain all copyright, trademark or other proprietary designations or watermarks contained on all IP; (ii) do not modify or alter the IP in any way; and (iii) do not provide or make available the IP to any third party in a commercial manner. Other than this limited license, no license, right, title, or interest in any IP is transferred to you as a result of your use of the Sites or Services or your accessing, viewing, downloading, or printing of the IP. You may not reproduce (except as noted above), publish, transmit, distribute, display, modify, create derivative works from, sell or participate in any sale of or exploit in any way, in whole or in part, any of the IP, the Sites, Services, or any related software.
9. Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice
If you believe that any material on the Sites infringes your copyright rights, please contact our designated agent for Digital Millennium Copyright Act notices at:
Attn: Copyright Manager
1815 S Meyers Rd
Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181
Email address: email@example.com
In your notice, please include:
If the notice is submitted by someone else on your behalf, the notice must also contain a statement that, under penalty of perjury, the person submitting the notice is authorized to act on your behalf.
10. Limitation of Liability
In no event will we or our affiliates, officers, directors, owners, employees, or agents be liable for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, special, indirect, incidental, or punitive damages or lost revenue, lost profits, Lost DATA, Loss of GOODWILL/REPUTATION, or lost anticipated business (even if we have been advised of or could have anticipated the possibility of such damages) arising from or relating to these Terms, THE SITE, or the ServiceS, regardless of the form of action or theory of liability. Our aggregate liability for any liabilities, losses, costs, damages, and expenses associated with any claim or action related to, in connection with, or arising under these Terms, THE SITE, or the ServiceS, regardless of the form of action or theory of liability, will not Exceed the greater of (1) the amount paid by you to us in the six months preceeding your claim or (2) one hundred dollars ($100). To the extent a jurisdiction does not allow the limitation of some liabilities, some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.
11. Dispute Resolution
Any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Sites, and/or the Services, including, but not limited to, alleged violations of state or federal statutory or common law rights or duties (a “Dispute”) will be solely and exclusively resolved according to the procedures set forth in this paragraph. If the parties are unable to resolve any Dispute through informal means, either party may initiate binding arbitration of such Dispute by sending notice demanding arbitration to the other party. The demand for arbitration will be made within a reasonable time after the Dispute has arisen, but in no event will it be made more than one year from when the aggrieved party knew or should have known of the controversy, claim or facts forming the basis of the Dispute. The arbitration will be initiated and conducted according to American Arbitration Association rules and procedures for commercial arbitration, including, as applicable, provisions for the resolution of consumer disputes (the “Arbitration Rules”). The arbitration will be conducted in Cook County, Illinois before a single neutral arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Arbitration Rules. The decision of the arbitrator will be final without option to appeal. Disputes with an amount in controversy of $10,000 or less will be determined on the basis of written submissions only. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the arbitrator will not have the power to award punitive, special, consequential, or indirect damages against any party. Arbitration costs and fees will be divided in accordance with the Arbitration Rules. Each party will be responsible for paying its own attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines. No disputes may be arbitrated on a class or representative basis and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO JOIN CLAIMS OR DISPUTES WITH THOSE OF OTHERS IN THE FORM OF A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR SIMILAR PROCEDURAL DEVICE; AND WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO PRESENT ITS CLAIM OR DISPUTE IN A COURT OF LAW. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s), if any, may be entered for enforcement purposes in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
12. Governing Law
The Terms are governed according to the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to its conflicts of law principles. Subject to the dispute resolution process described above, all claims, disputes, and suits must be brought solely in the state or federal courts located in Cook County, Illinois.
15. Force Majeure
We will be excused from failures or delays in delivery or performance of the Sites and/or Services, if such failure or delay is attributable to causes out of our reasonable control such as weather, acts of God, natural disaster, war, terrorist attack, disease, epidemic/pandemic, criminal activity, riot, civil unrest, strike, or utility failure.
We always welcome and appreciate your feedback and suggestions. You understand that we cannot necessarily respond to or implement feedback or suggestions. You acknowledge and agree that any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback, or other information provided by you to us are yours personally and not owned by a commercial entity. You grant us a worldwide, unrestricted, royalty-free license to distribute, publish, modify, edit, or otherwise use your submissions for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without any acknowledgement of or compensation to you.
The Terms constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, the parties intend that the offending provision be modified to the minimum extent necessary to be lawful and enforceable. Portions of the Terms which by their nature would survive termination of your use of the Sites or Services (e.g., disclaimer of warranties, limitation of liability, indemnification) will be deemed to survive. Headings are provided as a convenience and should not be used as interpretive aids. The Terms do not create any joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between the parties. You agree that ambiguities in the Terms will not be construed against us by attribution of drafting. We may assign any of our rights or obligations to others at any time without notice to you. You may not assign any of your rights or obligations to others without our prior written consent.
