Limitation Of Liability
NEITHER METALOGICS, ITS SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS, NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE LUME SERVICE WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE LUME SERVICE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT Metalogics HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
IN NO EVENT WILL metalogics’ TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE LUME SERVICE EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID TO metalogics FOR USE OF THE LUME SERVICE OR ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD ANY PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS TO METALOGICS FOR LUME, AS APPLICABLE.
THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN METALOGICS AND YOU.
You agree that any dispute between you and Metalogics arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, the Lume Service, or any other Lume products or services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
Governing Law: The Terms of Service and the resolution of any Disputes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
Informal Dispute Resolution: We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against MetaLogics, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting MetaLogics. We'll try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you through email. If a dispute is not resolved within 30 days after submission, you or MetaLogics may bring a formal proceeding.
We Both Agree To Arbitrate: You and MetaLogics agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration.
Arbitration Procedures: The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Minneapolis, Minnesota, or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees: The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. MetaLogics will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. MetaLogics will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Either you or MetaLogics may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Minneapolis, Minnesota or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Lume products or Lume Service, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
No Class Actions: You may only resolve Disputes with Metalogics on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed under our agreement.
Judicial Forum for Disputes: In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and MetaLogics agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Hennepin County, Minnesota. Both you and MetaLogics consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
Limitation on Claims: Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Lume products or Lume Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
Except as otherwise stated herein, these Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between MetaLogics and you regarding the Lume Service, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between MetaLogics and you regarding the Lume Service and Lume Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without MetaLogics’ prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and void. MetaLogics may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by MetaLogics under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Lume Service. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt on the message will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
MetaLogics' failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of MetaLogics. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
Additional Terms May Apply
Additional terms may apply to certain products or services. In the event that there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms, the additional terms will control.
