LIABILITY

All services provided by 4ib are provided on an as-is basis and without any express/implied warranties: This includes 4ib’s products, tools, services, APIs, and programs, including those that are not on the website but provided through a contractual agreement or arrangement. 4ib disclaims express or implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a designated purpose. 4ib does not warrant that any service, tool, or material presented on the Site will be free of errors or uninterrupted, or that the Site or the Site’s server will be virus-free or other malware and harmful elements, or that such errors and defects will be corrected. 4ib does not provide a warranty or make any representations of the accuracy, reliability, returns (economic or otherwise), risk of injury to your computer regarding the consequences of using the Site and its various services, tools, products, and content. Since the applicable law in this scenario may not allow for the exclusion of implied warranties, such exclusions may not apply to you, and no warranties of any earnings or commercial gain are made to you in any way.

4ib, shall under no circumstances, out of contingency or negligence, be liable for any damages that occur because of the use/inability to use the suite of services/tools/products provided by the Site or outside of the site (facilitated by separate contractual arrangements), even if 4ib has been informed by you about the possibility of such damages.

Under no circumstances shall 4ib’s total liability to you exceed the amount of $100 (One Hundred US Dollars) for any such losses, damages, and causes of action in tort, contract, or any other legal theory (including but not limited to negligence). This is because the applicable law may not allow the exclusion of liability for incidental/consequential damages, and thus the mentioned limitation may not apply to you.

You agree that any civil claim of any nature as a result of your usage of any tool, service, or product on the Site or through separate contractual agreements will not be held against 4ib, or its affiliated stakeholders (officers, investors, partners, affiliates, advertisers) and employees, and they will be defended by you and harmless from such claim(s).

For all third-party extensions or other offerings available to you on the Site or affiliated services via separate agreements, 4ib disclaims all liability.

CANCELLATION OF PROGRAMS, TOOLS, AND SERVICES

4ib may, at any time and without notice to you, discontinue or cancel any or all of its tools, products, services, and programs provided on the Site.

JURISDICTION/ARBITRATION

This Agreement, along with any separate agreements regarding the provision of all services by 4ib shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California, excluding the body of laws that is known as choice of law/conflict of laws. All disputes, controversies or claims (apart from intentional or unintentional criminal acts/civil wrongs committed by you) arising out of or relating to this Agreement are subject to the provisions of this Section and will be resolved through mandatory binding arbitration conducted in Los Angeles, California, before J.A.M.S./ENDISPUTE or its successor ("JAMS" i.e., Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc.) pursuant to the United States Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. (the "Act"); and (iii) this Agreement. This arbitration will be carried out in accordance with the provisions of J.A.M.S.’s Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in effect at the time of filing of the demand for arbitration (the "JAMS Rules"), and it will be subject to the provisions of this Section. All the terms mentioned in this Agreement will be in control in case there is ever an inconsistency between the JAMS rules and the terms herein. All related parties will ensure full cooperation with JAMS and with each other by promptly selecting a single arbitrator from JAMS’s panel of neutrals. In the event that all the parties are unable to select an arbitrator within 30 days after the date of either of the parties’ notice of demand to conduct arbitration, then JAMS will appoint an arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will place findings of fact and conclusions of law. The resulting judgment regarding the arbitrator’s award shall thus be binding for all the parties and final and may be entered in any court having the jurisdiction thereof. If JAMS or its successor is not any longer in business, then the arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s fees will be shared equally by the parties and each party will bear its costs and the attorneys’ fees. All documents or evidence (written or oral), presented in connection with the arbitration, or filed regarding the proceeding will be deemed by the parties as well as the arbitrator as confidential information of both parties. The arbitrator who is chosen in accordance with these provisions will not have the power to alter, amend or otherwise affect the terms of these arbitration provisions or the provisions of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from applying for and obtaining from a court a temporary restraining order and/or other injunctive relief.
