limitation of liability 

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL "IF NOT YOU, NOBODY", ITS AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, LICENSORS OR SERVICE PROVIDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR ENHANCED DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM: (I) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE; (II) THE CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES ON, THROUGH OR FOLLOWING USE OF THE SERVICE; OR (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR CONTENT, EVEN IF "IF NOT YOU, NOBODY" HAS BEEN ADVISED AT ANY TIME OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, IN NO EVENT SHALL IF NOT YOU, NOBODY’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SERVICE OR THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO "IF NOT YOU, NOBODY" DURING THE TWENTY-FOUR (24) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST FILE A LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING AGAINST "IF NOT YOU, NOBODY", WHETHER IN LAW OR IN EQUITY, IN ANY TRIBUNAL. THE DAMAGES LIMITATION SET FORTH IN THE IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING SENTENCE APPLIES (I) REGARDLESS OF THE GROUND UPON WHICH LIABILITY IS BASED (WHETHER DEFAULT, CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, OR OTHERWISE), (II) IRRESPECTIVE OF THE TYPE OF BREACH OF OBLIGATIONS, AND (III) WITH RESPECT TO ALL EVENTS, THE SERVICE, AND THIS AGREEMENT. 
THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 15 SHALL APPLY EVEN IF YOUR REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FAIL WITH RESPECT TO THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

retroactive and prospective arbitration, class-action waiver, and jury waiver

Except where prohibited by applicable law:

- the exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), or the service, regardless of the date of accrual and including past, pending, and future claims, shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the European Arbitration Association under the Consumer Arbitration Rules. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against 'If not you, nobody' in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction in the county in which you reside. Such arbitration shall be conducted by written submissions only, unless either you or 'If not you, nobody' elect to invoke the right to an oral hearing before the arbitrator. But whether you choose arbitration or small claims court, you agree that you will not under any circumstances commence, maintain, or participate in any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding against 'If not you, nobody'. 
- by accepting this agreement, you agree to the arbitration agreement in this section. In doing so, BOTH YOU AND 'IF NOT YOU, NOBODY' GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and 'If not you, nobody' (except for matters that may be properly taken to a small claims court and are within such court’s jurisdiction). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING, including, without limitation, any past, pending or future class actions, including those existing as of the date of this agreement.
- if you assert a claim against "If not you, nobody" outside of small claims court, your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY, and the arbitrator shall determine all claims and all issues regarding the arbitrability of the dispute. The same is true for "If not you, nobody". Both you and "If not you, nobody" are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can generally grant the relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
WHETHER TO AGREE TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS AN IMPORTANT DECISION. IT IS YOUR DECISION TO MAKE, AND YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE TO CONDUCT FURTHER RESEARCH AND TO CONSULT WITH OTHERS — INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO AN ATTORNEY — REGARDING THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR DECISION, JUST AS YOU WOULD WHEN MAKING ANY OTHER IMPORTANT BUSINESS OR LIFE DECISION.

governing law 

Except where our arbitration agreement is prohibited by the laws of European Union, without regard to its conflict of laws rules, shall apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to this agreement, the service, or your relationship with 'If not you, nobody'.

venue 

Except for claims that may be properly brought in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction in the country in which you reside, all claims arising out of or relating to this agreement, to the service, or to your relationship with 'If not you, nobody' that for whatever reason are not submitted to arbitration will be litigated exclusively in the courts of European Union. You and 'If not you, nobody' consent to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of courts in the European Union and waive any claim that such courts constitute an inconvenient forum.

indemnity by you

You agree, to the extent permitted under applicable law, to indemnify, defend and hold harmless 'If not you, nobody', our affiliates, and their and our respective officers, directors, agents, and employees from and against any and all complaints, demands, claims, damages, losses, costs, liabilities and expenses, including attorney’s fees, due to, arising out of, or relating in any way to your access to or use of the service, your content, or your breach of this agreement.

entire agreement; other.

If any provision of this agreement is held invalid, the remainder of this agreement shall continue in full force and effect. The failure of 'If not you, nobody' to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You agree that your 'If not you, nobody' account is non-transferable and all of your rights to your account and its content terminate upon your death. No agency, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary or other special relationship or employment is created as a result of this agreement and you may not make any representations on behalf of or bind 'If not you, nobody' in any manner.
