8. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES & LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
THE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8 DO NOT PURPORT TO LIMIT LIABILITY OR ALTER YOUR RIGHTS AS A CONSUMER THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. Muc-Off warrants that Muc-Off has validly entered into these Terms and has the legal power to do so. You warrant that you have validly entered into these Terms and have the legal power to do so.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED ABOVE, THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. Muc-Off specifically disclaims all warranties and conditions of any kind, including all implied warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, freedom from defects, uninterrupted use and all warranties implied from any course of dealing or usage of trade. Muc-Off does not warrant that (a) the Services will meet your requirements, (b) operation of the Services will be uninterrupted or virus- or error-free or (c) errors will be corrected. Any oral or written advice provided by Muc-Off or its authorized agents does not create any warranty. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHICH MEANS THAT SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
YOU AGREE THAT MUC-OFF IS NOT LIABLE (Y) FOR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, LOSS OF USE, DATA OR PROFITS OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION), HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER ARISING IN ANY WAY IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) EVEN IF MUC-OFF HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. YOU ALSO AGREE THAT MUC-OFF IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM, DEMAND OR DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.
IF FOR ANY REASON THE DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 8 ARE INAPPLICABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN MUC-OFF’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY FOR ANY TYPE OF DAMAGES HEREUNDER SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF THE AMOUNT THAT YOU PAID TO MUC-OFF DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRECEDING THE INCIDENT THAT GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY AND $1,000.
You acknowledge and agree that the above limitations of liability together with the other provisions in these Terms that limit liability are essential terms and that we would not be willing to grant you the rights set forth in these Terms but for your agreement to the above limitations of liability.
IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR”.
You agree to indemnify and defend Muc-Off and its directors, officers, managers, employees, affiliates and agents (the “Muc-Off Parties”) from and against all losses, liabilities, actual or pending claims, actions, damages, expenses, costs of defense and reasonable attorneys’ fees brought against Muc-Off by any third party arising from your use of the Services [,your Submissions] or any breach or violation of these Terms, the rights of a third party or applicable law. Muc-Off reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification hereunder. No settlement that affects the rights or obligations of Muc-Off may be made without Muc-Off’s prior written approval.
10. GOVERNING LAW; DISPUTE RESOLUTION
These Terms are governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the [State of California, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws of such state and are binding upon the parties hereto in the United States and worldwide. You and Muc-Off agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the interpretation or construction of these Terms.
YOU AND MUC-OFF AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or clASS member in any PURPORTED class or representative action or proceeding.
Except where prohibited by law, any dispute between you and the Muc-Off Parties arising from or relating to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of these Terms to arbitration (collectively, “Covered Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration in the [State of Delaware] administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its rules (including its rules and procedures for consumer-related disputes) in effect on the date thereof (“AAA Rules”). Prior to initiating any legal action, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60 days’ advanced written notice. Muc-Off will provide such notice by email to the email address that you provided when you created your account and you must provide such notice to Muc-Off by email at email@example.com.
If, after the 60-day notice period ends, you decide to initiate arbitration, you must provide MucOff with a Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides sample forms here.)
The AAA’s Rules govern all filing, administration and arbitrator fees. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration are prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, Muc-Off will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines that any claim you assert in the arbitration is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, you agree to reimburse Muc-Off for all fees associated with the arbitration that Muc-Off paid on your behalf which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA Rules.
A single arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. The arbitrator’s decision must be with written explanation and remain confidential.
If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section 10 is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration be permitted). Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes of this Section 10, these Terms and related transactions are subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
Please Note: By agreeing to these Terms, you explicitly agree that any claims or actions that you may otherwise have against Muc-Off under the laws of any jurisdiction outside the United States are hereby waived, including any claim or action under the laws of your own country, and that your sole location and applicable law for any disputes is in the United States according to the terms of this Section 10. This provision does not, however, apply if you are a consumer residing in a jurisdiction that requires us to use a legally competent court of the jurisdiction where you reside.

- If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unenforceable or invalid, the remaining provisions will continue with the same effect as if such unenforceable or invalid provision had not been used.
- If Muc-Off fails or you fail to perform any obligation under these Terms and the other party does not enforce such obligation, the failure to enforce on any occasion will not constitute a waiver of any obligation and will not prevent enforcement on any other occasion.
- Nothing contained in these Terms will be deemed to constitute Muc-Off or you as the agent or representative of the other or as joint venturers or partners.
- If Muc-Off is or you are prevented from performing or unable to perform any obligation under these Terms due to any cause beyond the reasonable control of the party invoking this provision, the affected party’s performance will be extended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such cause.
