To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Company, and the Company Parties shall not be liable to you or any third party for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary, extra-contractual, or punitive damages of any kind whatsoever, including, without limitation, lost revenues or lost profits, loss of data, loss of business or anticipated savings, loss of use, loss of goodwill, or other damages which are in any way related to your use of the Site and Products, regardless of legal theory (including, without limitation, contract, tort, personal injury, property damage, negligence, warranty, or strict liability), whether or not Company or the Company Parties have been advised of the possibility, foreseeability, or probability of such damages, and even if the remedies otherwise available fail of their essential purposes. Without limiting the foregoing, this limitation of liability explicitly includes, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any damages you may incur from using the Products or watching any video found on the Site. In no event will Company or the Company Parties be liable for damages of any kind, under any legal theory, arising out of or in connection with any claim for losses or injuries resulting from events beyond its control including, but not limited to, the following: acts of God, acts of public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority, criminal acts of third parties, the application of security or health-related regulations imposed by any government, work stoppages or other labor disputes, war, military actions or police actions, acts of terrorism, civil commotions, or disruptions in air or ground transportation networks, such as weather phenomena and natural disasters.

THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. THE ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN COMPANY AND YOU IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN COMPANY AND YOU. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, IF ANY PART OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, COMPANY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS AND/OR YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND PRODUCTS WILL NOT EXCEED ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($1,000.00).

You agree to indemnify Company and the Company Parties and all of their respective officers, directors, members, shareholders, employees, representatives, personnel, successors, and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnities”) against all claims, actions, suits, and other proceedings arising out of or incurred in connection with these Terms, including, without limitation: (i) your use of the Site, Products, Company’s services, or otherwise, in any direct or indirect capacity, including, without limitation, for any unintended uses of the Products, all of the foregoing to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law; and (ii) pursuant to your breach or alleged breach of the Terms hereunder (“Claims”).

This indemnification obligation shall survive these Terms and your use of the Site and Products. Company reserves the right to take over the exclusive defense of Claims for which Company is entitled to indemnification, and in such an event, you shall provide prompt and reasonable cooperation to Company.
In addition to these Terms, sweepstakes, contests, or other promotions (each, a “Contest”) made available by Company through the Site (including through Company’s social media channels) may have specific rules that are different from these Terms. By participating in a Contest, you agree to and will become subject to any specific Contest terms and conditions. Company urges you to review the rules before you participate in a Contest.

The waiver by either party hereto of a breach of any of the provisions of the Terms by the other party hereto shall not be construed as a waiver by the non-breaching party of any subsequent breach by the breaching party.
