6. DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
(a) DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, VENA OFFERS THE VENA MARKETPLACE AND ALL VENDOR OFFERS AND VENA OFFERS ON AN “AS IS” BASIS “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”. YOU BEAR THE ENTIRE RISK OF USING THE VENA MARKETPLACE. VENA AND THE COVERED PARTIES HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES OR CONDITIONS RELATING TO THE VENA MARKETPLACE, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WORKMANLIKE EFFORT, PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, VENA AND THE COVERED PARTIES EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES THAT ACCESS TO, OR USE OF, THE VENA MARKETPLACE WILL BE UNINTERRUPED, TIMELY, SECURE OR ERROR FREE OR THAT ANY ERRORS CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED, THAT THE VENA MARKETPLACE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULTS, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS, SYSTEMS OR SERVICES, OR THAT INFORMATION AVAILABLE FROM THE VENA MARKETPLACE WILL BE ACCURATE OR TIMELY. YOU MAY HAVE OTHER STATUTORY WARRANTIES, IN WHICH CASE THE DURATION OF ANY STATUTORY WARRANTIES WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
(b) Vendor Offers and Vendor Products. Vendors are solely responsible for the Vendor Offers and Vendor Products, and any related content or materials included in such Vendor Offers and Vendor Products. Vendors are solely responsible for ensuring that any information they submit in connection with any Vendor Offer listed on the Vena Marketplace is accurate, complete and correct. Any acceptance or use of Vendor Offers or Vendor Products is at your sole discretion and risk. You should always independently verify that any Vendor Offers, Vendor Products or Vendor business practices meet your needs. VENA AND THE COVERED PARTIES HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY VENDOR OFFERS OR VENDOR PRODUCTS, INCLUDING THEIR ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, SECURITY, DATA HANDLING, DATA PROCESSING, COMPLETENESS, USEFULNESS OR QUALITY, EVEN IF VENA IS HOSTING SUCH VENDOR OFFERS OR VENDOR PRODUCTS. VENA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE STANDARDS OR BUSINESS PRACTICES OF ANY VENDOR (WHETHER RELATING TO SUPPORT, AVAILABILITY, PRIVACY, SECURITY OR OTHERWISE). THESE DISCLAIMERS APPLY EVEN IF A VENDOR OFFER COMPLIES WITH ANY GUIDELINESS OR REQUIREMENTS THAT VENA MAY IMPOSE FOR SUCH VENDOR OFFERS, AND EVEN IF VENA HAS REVIEWED, CERTIFIED OR APPROVED THE VENDOR OFFER OR THE VENDOR PARTICIPATES IN ANY OF VENA’S PARTNER PROGRAMS.
(c) LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL VENA OR THE COVERED PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHER LIABILITY RELATED TO THE VENA MARKETPLACE, INCLUDING FOR ANY LOSS OF USE, LOST OR INACCURATE DATA, FAILURE OF SECURITY MECHANISMS, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS OR COSTS OF DELAY. IF THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER OF DIRECT DAMAGE IS NOT ENFORCEABLE AT LAW FOR ANY REASON, IN NO EVENT WILL VENA’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED US$500.00. MULTIPLE CLAIMS WILL NOT EXPAND THESE LIMITATIONS. BECAUSE VENA IS NOT INVOLVED IN ANY TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND A VENDOR, IF A DISPUTE ARISES BETWEEN YOU AND A VENDOR, YOU AGREE TO RELEASE VENA AND THE COVERED ENTITIES FROM ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, LIABILITIES AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES.
(d) Basis of Bargain. Vena is entering into this Agreement relying on the limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranty and other provisions relating to allocation of risk herein, and you agree that such provisions are an essential basis of the bargain between the parties. You agree that the waivers and limitations specified in this Section 6 apply regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise and will survive and apply even if we have been advised of the possibility of a claim and even if any limited remedy specified in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
Your rights under this Agreement will automatically terminate, without prior notice or liability, upon your failure to comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement. In the event of such termination, you must cease all use of the Vena Marketplace, and we may immediately revoke your access to the Vena Marketplace without notice to you and without refund of any amounts, if applicable. We may terminate this Agreement without notice to you if we, in our discretion, discontinue the Vena Marketplace. If this Agreement terminates, your rights to use any previously-purchased Vendor Offers and related Vendor Products, or any previously-purchased Vena Offers and related Vena Products, will survive in accordance with the relevant Vendor Terms or Vena Terms (as applicable).
(a) Contact Information. For communications concerning this Agreement, you may contact us at email@example.com. We may send you notices to any email address that we have on file for you.
(b) Changes to this Agreement. We may change this Agreement at any time, and we will notify you of such changes by updating the “Last updated” date referenced at the top of this Agreement and posting the updated Agreement on our website. Your continued use the Vena Marketplace after the changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, you must stop using the Vena Marketplace.
(c) Assignment and Subcontracting. We may freely assign, transfer, delegate or subcontract our rights and obligations under this Agreement. You may not assign, transfer, delegate or subcontract any rights or obligations under this Agreement, including in connection with a change of control. Any such purported assignment, transfer, delegation or subcontracting by you shall be ineffective.
(d) Choice of Law and Venue. If you have any concern or dispute about the Vena Marketplace or this Agreement, you agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting us. This Agreement is governed by laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein (disregarding conflict of laws principles) and the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the courts of Toronto, Ontario. Neither party will claim lack of personal jurisdiction or forum non conveniens in these courts. In any action or suit related to this Agreement, the prevailing party is entitled to recover its costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement will prevent Vena from seeking injunctive relief with respect to a violation of intellectual property rights, confidentiality obligations or enforcement or recognition of any award or order in any appropriate jurisdiction. The terms of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the Sale of Goods do not apply to this Agreement. The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) will not apply to this Agreement regardless of when or where adopted.
(e) Export Control. You may not use the Vena Marketplace, the Vendor Products or the Vena Products or otherwise export or re-export any of the foregoing except as authorized by applicable export control laws and regulations. In particular, but without limitation, the Vena Marketplace may not be used, and Vendor Products and Vena Products may not be exported or re-exported (i) into any US embargoed countries, or (ii) to anyone on the US Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and Consolidated Sanctions list or the US Department of Commerce’s Denied Persons, Entity, or Unverified Lists. You represent and warrant that you are not located in any such country or on any such list. You agree not to use or provide the Vena Marketplace, the Vendor Products or the Vena Products for any prohibited end use, including to support any nuclear, chemical or biological weapons proliferation, or missile technology, without the prior permission of the United States government.
(f) Miscellaneous. Vena’s failure to enforce any rights under this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of the same right on another occasion, or of the right to enforce any other right under this Agreement. Sections of this Agreement that, by their terms, require performance after the termination or expiration of this Agreement will survive. This is the entire Agreement between you and Vena in connection with your access to and use of Vena Marketplace and supersedes any prior agreements with respect to the same subject matter. For clarity, this does not limit the Vendor Terms or the Vena Terms, which will apply in accordance with Sections 1(b) and (c) above (as applicable). If a court holds that Vena cannot enforce a part of this Agreement as written, Vena may replace those terms with similar terms to the extent enforceable under the relevant law, but the rest of this Agreement will not change. This Agreement’s section titles are for reference only and have no legal effect. Neither this Agreement, nor any terms and conditions contained herein, create a partnership, joint venture, employment relationship, or franchise relationship between us.
