THIS SITE (INCLUDING THE IDIDIO APPLICATIONS, GENERATED CONTENT AND DATA INCORPORATED THEREIN) MAY INCLUDE INACCURACIES, ERRORS AND DEFECTS, MAY BE OUTDATED, AND IS PROVIDED AS-IS AND AS-AVAILABLE WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, INTEGRATION, ACCURACY, WORKMANLIKE EFFORT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT ARE DISCLAIMED.

IN NO EVENT IS THE SITE, RIPE DATA, LLC, OR ITS OFFICERS, OWNERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES OR ATTORNEYS (“PROTECTED PARTIES”) LIABLE WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE), FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST SAVINGS, LOST PROFIT, LOST GOODWILL OR REPUTATIONAL DAMAGE, LOST OR CORRUPTED DATA, COMMUNICATION FAILURE OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) EVEN IF NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE OF SUCH POSSIBILITY. THIS LIMITATION IS A MATERIAL CONDITION TO THIS AGREEMENT, IS COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE AND HAS BEEN FACTORED INTO THE PRICE AND AGREEMENT AS A WHOLE. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE FOREGOING LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

YOU RELEASE THE PROTECTED PARTIES FROM ANY CLAIMS THAT ARE LIMITED OR DISCLAIMED HEREIN. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE 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 OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Protected Parties (as defined above) from and against any claims, actions, demands, liability, damages (including legal and fees) asserted by any third party and arising from your violation of this Agreement or applicable law.
Limitation of Remedies
You agree that if the Site breaches this Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy will be to terminate this Agreement and your relationship with the Site. This applies regardless of whether the remedy fails of its essential purpose.
The Site is provided as-is and as-available with all faults. We are not responsible for any delay or failure in performance of the Site in whole or in part for any reason including, without limitation: fires, floods, storms, earthquakes, volcano, civil disturbances, disruption of telecommunications, transportation, utilities, services or supplies, governmental action, computer viruses, corruption or error of data, hacker attack, cyber-terrorism, EMP attack, war, labor stoppage, incompatible or defective equipment, software or services or otherwise.

GOVERNING LAW, JURISDICTION AND VENUE
THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SUBSTANTIVE LAWS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA (USA), WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS OF LAW PRINCIPLES.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLYING WITH YOUR OWN LOCAL LAWS. Since we make no warranties and have limited our liabilities, you should have little reason to have a grievance with us. Should you nevertheless bring legal action against us, you irrevocably agree it will be brought and maintained on an individual basis (and not consolidated or joined with similar cases) within one (1) year after the claim arises or be barred. If we substantially prevail in the defense of any such proceeding brought by you, you agree to reimburse us for our reasonable legal costs.
