LIMITED LIABILITY

โ€‹

Exclusion of Damages and Limitation of Liability. Genwise does not charge fees for you to access and use the Site, the Application and Content pursuant to these General Terms of Use. The Content is comprised of general information and describes some of the basic elements of the Genwise service and provides a platform for access to commercial transactions with Genwise and third-party partners, which shall subject to additional terms and conditions not referenced in these General Terms of Use. As consideration for your free access and use of the System pursuant to these General Terms of Use, you further agree that GENWISE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS OR THE LIKE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE GENERAL TERMS OF USE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SYSTEM, SERVICES PROVIDED BY THIRD PARTIES OR GENWISE, CONTENT, PROPRIETARY INFORMATION, OR ANY INTERRUPTION OR DISRUPTION OF SUCH USE, EVEN IF GENWISE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE). THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF GENWISE WITH REGARD TO THESE GENERAL TERMS OF USE WILL IN NO EVENT EXCEED USD$1.00.

 

Jurisdictional Limitations. Some states and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to you. IN THESE JURISDICTIONS, GENWISE’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

 

Dispute Resolution; Jury Waiver. THESE GENERAL TERMS OF USE ARE MADE UNDER, AND WILL BE CONSTRUED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF TEXAS APPLICABLE TO AGREEMENTS MADE AND TO BE PERFORMED SOLELY THEREIN, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW OF TEXAS. In any action between or among any of the parties, whether arising out of these General Terms of Use or otherwise, THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE FOREVER ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY AND AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BY ARBITRATION UNDER THE PROCEDURES CONTAINED BELOW, PROVIDED HOWEVER, THAT GENWISE MAY SEEK EQUITABLE OR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF IN THE COURTS FOR YOUR BREACH OF THESE GENERAL TERMS OF USE, IN WHICH INSTANCE YOU HEREBY SUBMIT TO THE JURISDICTION OF THE STATE COURTS LOCATED IN AUSTIN, TRAVIS COUNTY, TEXAS. 

 

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM GENWISE. In the event that Genwise has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after 60 days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Genwise claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms of Service, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the Judicial Mediation and Arbitration Services (“JAMS”) under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in Austin, Texas unless you and Genwise agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying its own JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Genwise from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of Genwise’s proprietary interests. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU AND GENWISE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.

โ€‹

No Reliance; Due Inquiry. You affirm and agree that, given the general and “as-is” nature of the System, you are not specifically relying on any statements, or materials contained on any portion of the System to make any business decisions. The third-party business products and services provided to you through the System or offline but introduced to you through Genwise are inherently complex and unique. Should you choose to continue your inquiry into whether Genwise’s or and of its third-party provider’s service is right for you, you will have an opportunity to make additional inquiry of Genwise and such third-party provider and you should make an independent investigation of the suitability of using Genwise or such third party provider for your particular business needs. Only after such appropriate due diligence, a thorough review of Genwise’s or such third party provider’s service offering including the terms and conditions of Genwise’s service agreements, and thorough screening of any third party provider Genwise proposes to you should you come to any conclusions or make any decisions about whether Genwise or any third party provider proposed by Genwise is right for you and your specific project needs or requirements.
