TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, REDD DISCLAIMS LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES BASED ON THE SUBSCRIBER’S USE OF THE WEBSITE AND CMS AND ITS CONTENT. IN ANY EVENT, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF REDD FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER RELATED TO USE OF THE WEBSITE AND ITS CONTENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY THE SUBSCRIBER OR USER FOR SERVICES PROVIDED VIA THE WEBSITE AND CMS PURSUANT TO THE SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT DURING THE 12 MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY.

REDD welcomes feedback and suggestions from Subscribers and Users regarding how to improve the Website and CMS. However, any ideas, suggestions, information, know-how, material, or any other content (collectively, “Submissions”) received will be deemed to include a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license for REDD to adopt, reproduce, publish, transmit, disseminate, distribute, copy, use, create derivative works, display, (in whole or part) worldwide, or act on such Submissions without additional approval or consideration, in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed for the full term of any rights that may exist in such Submissions. The Subscriber or User and its registered Subscribers or Users hereby waive any claim to the contrary.
Failure to insist on strict performance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by REDD of any right under this Agreement will be deemed to be a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time.
No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between the Subscriber or User and REDD as a result of this Agreement or the Subscriber’s or User’s use of the Website or CMS. If any provision of this Agreement is held unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Costs of Arbitration. The Rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. REDD will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than seventy-five thousand ($75,000) dollars. REDD will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Small Claims Court; Infringement. Either you or REDD may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in New York County or any United States county where you live or work. Furthermore, notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction, to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND REDD WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR JURY. You and REDD are instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and REDD over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND REDD WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor REDD is entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth in (g) below.
Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration Agreement section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with REDD.
WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF AND/OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision or provisions of the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision, term or condition of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
User and Subscriber shall not assign, transfer or sub-license any of their rights or obligations under this Agreement. User and Subscriber shall not transfer any copies or versions of the Product to any third party. REDD may assign all or any of its rights and transfer any or all of its obligations under this Agreement.
Any such notice shall take effect if delivered or posted upon delivery; and if sent by facsimile, when a complete and legible copy of the communication has been received at the appropriate address. This Agreement as well as the Subscription Agreement, which is incorporated by reference as if set forth fully herein, represents the entire agreement of the parties in relation to the subject matter of this Agreement and the Subscription Agreement and supersedes any previous agreement between the parties in relation to the Website and CMS.
