We reserve the right to change our fees and/or methods of billing and payment from time-to-time and any such changes will be effective following notice to you (which we may provide either by emailing you directly or by posting such notice on the Site). Your continued use of this Site following the effective date of a change to such fees and/or billing and payment methods shall constitute your acceptance of any such changes.

WE DO NOT MAKE, AND HEREBY DISCLAIM, ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THIS SITE, ALL SERVICES OR ANY PORTION THEREOF, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING (WITHOUT LIMITATION) IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, OR ANY WARRANTIES ARISING BY COURSE OF DEALING OR CUSTOM OF TRADE. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT ANY MATERIAL, CONTENT, PROPERTIES, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES DISPLAYED ON OR OFFERED OR AVAILABLE THROUGH THIS SITE ARE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, APPROPRIATE, RELIABLE, OR TIMELY. WE ALSO MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES THAT THE SITE OR ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY US WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS AND/OR THAT YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF SUCH SITE AND/OR SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, FREE OF VIRUSES, MALICIOUS CODE, OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, OR OTHERWISE SECURE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
YOU WILL NOT HOLD US, OUR AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, PARTNERS, AFFILIATES OR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS (COLLECTIVELY, "INDEMNIFIED PARTIES") RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHER USERS? ACTIONS OR INACTIONS ON THIS SITE OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SERVICES. BY USING THIS SITE AND/OR ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY US, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE ARE NOT A PARTY TO THE ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN ANY LICENSOR AND LICENSEE, AND WE DO NOT GUARANTY THE QUALITY, SAFETY OR LEGALITY OF CONTENT LISTED FOR LICENSE ON THIS SITE, THE TRUTH OR ACCURACY OF ANY CONTENT LISTINGS, THE ABILITY OR LEGAL RIGHT OF LICENSORS TO LICENSE CONTENT LEGALLY, THE ABILITY OR LEGAL RIGHT OF LICENSEES TO LICENSE SUCH CONTENT, OR THAT A LICENSOR OR LICENSEE WILL ACTUALLY COMPLETE A TRANSACTION. FURTHERMORE, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NONE OF THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES SHALL BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR ANY OTHER FORM OF DAMAGES IN ANY MANNER ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES OFFERED BY US OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR AGREEMENTS WITH LICENSORS, LICENSEES OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTIES, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION OR THE BASIS OF THE CLAIM OR WHETHER OR NOT ANY INDEMNIFIED PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
REGARDLESS OF THE FOREGOING PARAGRAPH, IF ANY OF THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES ARE FOUND TO BE LIABLE, THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES? LIABILITY TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY SHALL BE LIMITED AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE TOTAL FEES (IN U.S. DOLLARS) YOU PAID TO SHOWRIGHTS IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE OCCURRENCE GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM OF LIABILITY.
If you have a dispute with one or more users registered with this Site, you release the Indemnified Parties from all Damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code ? 1542, which states: "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."
In addition to any indemnification obligation set forth elsewhere in these Terms, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold the Indemnified Parties harmless against any losses, expenses, costs or damages (including our reasonable attorneys? fees, experts? fees and other reasonable costs of litigation or proceedings) (collectively, "Damages") arising from, incurred as a result of, or in any manner related to any claim or action based upon (a) your breach of, or failure to comply with, these Terms; (b) your use of this Site or any Services; (c) the use of this Site or any Services by any other party using your Identification; (d) your actions or inactions with respect to your agreements or interactions with any third parties, whether or not such parties are other users of this Site; and/or (e) your licensing or use of any Content. We may, in our sole and absolute discretion, participate in the defense of any such claim or action and any negotiations for its settlement or compromise. No settlement which may adversely affect our rights or obligations shall be made without our prior written approval. We reserve the right, at our own expense and on notice to you, to assume exclusive defense and control of any such claim or action and then your corresponding indemnification obligation will end. Choice of Law and Consent to Jurisdiction
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., without regard to conflicts of law provisions; and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the federal and state courts located in Orange County, California, U.S.A. with respect to all disputes arising out of or relating to this Site, any Services provided by us and/or these Terms.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole and absolute discretion, to terminate, restrict or suspend your account and/or to block your use of this Site. Note that any termination, restriction, or suspension of your account will not in any way limit any other rights or remedies which are available to us if you violate, breach or fail to comply with these Terms in any way whatsoever. Upon the effective date of any termination of your account, your right to use any of the Services we provide shall immediately cease.
If you are receiving any Services on a subscription basis, you may cancel your subscription by providing us with written notice of your cancellation and ceasing to use this Site for any such subscription-based Services. Cancellation of your subscription is your sole right and exclusive remedy if you are not satisfied with any such subscription-based Services. Cancellation of your subscription shall not relieve you of any obligations to pay accrued charges, including any prorated charges accrued for the billing cycle in which your subscription is cancelled.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms. If any part of these Terms are determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth herein, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect. No failure or delay by us in enforcing any provision, exercising any option or requiring performance shall be construed to be a waiver of that or any other right in connection with these Terms.
Any provision which must survive in order to allow us to enforce its meaning shall survive the termination of your account and/or these Terms. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
