9. Disclaimer, No Warranties, Limitations

The Site and Services are provided as-is and as available. Compulink Management Center, Inc. dba Laserfiche and its shareholders, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, representatives, business partners, vendors, clients, licensors, and advisors, whether jointly or severally (“Laserfiche Entities”), expressly disclaim any warranties and conditions of any kind, whether express or implied, statutory or otherwise, including but not limited to any warranties of merchantability, non-infringement and fitness for particular purpose.

 Neither Laserfiche nor any person associated with Laserfiche makes any representation or warranty with respect to the completeness, security, reliability, quality, accuracy, or availability of the Site or Services. Without limiting the foregoing, neither Laserfiche nor any person associated with Laserfiche represents or warrants that the Site or Services or items obtained through the Site or Services will be accurate, reliable, error-free or uninterrupted, that our Site or the server that makes the Site available are free of harmful components, such as viruses, or that the Site or any Services or items obtained through the Site will otherwise meet your needs or expectations.

 You are responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for anti-virus protection and accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to our site for any reconstruction of any lost data.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer or exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain damages, or the disclaimer or waiver. To the extent that they are held to be legally invalid, or if Laserfiche may not, as a matter of law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of Laserfiche’s liability will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law. All other terms will remain in full force and effect.

 

10. Limitation of Liability

In no event will Laserfiche Entities be liable for damages of any kind, under any legal theory, arising out of or in connection with your use, or inability to use, the Site, Services, any websites linked to the Site, any content or information received through the Site, whether it be direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, including but not limited to loss of use, data, business or profits, loss of goodwill, loss of data, whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract (foreseeable or otherwise), and on any theory of liability, arising out of or in connection with the Site, Services, or any other such provision by Laserfiche.

The existence of more than one claim will not increase such limitation of liability.

The foregoing does not affect any liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

 

11. Severability

If any provision of these terms will be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severed from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. If a court or arbitrator holds that we cannot enforce a part of these Terms as written, we may replace those terms with similar terms to the extent enforceable under relevant law.

 

12. Arbitration & Class Action Waiver

Laserfiche hopes that we don’t have a dispute and we are open to resolving any issues informally. At Laserfiche’s sole discretion, it may require you to submit any disputes arising from these Terms or Services, including disputes arising from or concerning their interpretation, violation, invalidity, non-performance, or termination, to final and binding arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You agree to submit to arbitration in Los Angeles, California.

Neither you or Laserfiche will enter class arbitration or bring any claims as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative arbitration proceeding. In the event the prohibition on class arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then the remaining portions of the arbitration agreement or this Agreement will remain in force. You will have the right to opt out of this agreement to arbitrate by providing written notice of your intention to opt out within 30 days after the Effective Date of the latest Terms.

Any legal suit, action or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms will be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the County of Los Angeles and state of California. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction and venue over you by such courts.
