Nothing in these terms gives you a right to use our trademarks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brands. There is also nothing in these terms that gives you the right to copy the Services, to copy any feature or portion of the Services, or create a derivative of the Services, all of which is expressly prohibited. Unless prohibited by law, any feedback, comments, or suggestions you may provide regarding the Services are entirely voluntary, you agree to and hereby do assign any and all intellectual property rights in your feedback, comments, or suggestions to Openlayer Inc., and we will be free to use your feedback, comments, or suggestions as we see fit and without any obligation or approval to you whatsoever.

You agree to immediately notify us of and indemnify and hold Openlayer, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Services, (including, without limitation, the unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security attributable to your use of the Services, and including, again, without limitation, any violation of any data subject’s personal information privacy rights), the violation of these terms by you, or the infringement by you, or another user using your account, on any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.
YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE DISCLAIMED. UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY LAW OR PROVIDED IN AN EXPRESS, WRITTEN AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND OPENLAYER, NEITHER OPENLAYER NOR ANY PERSON ASSOCIATED WITH OPENLAYER MAKES ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO THE COMPLETENESS, SECURITY, RELIABILITY, QUALITY, ACCURACY, OR AVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WITH RESPECT TO THE ACCURACY OF MACHINE LEARNING MODELS MODIFIED BY USING OPENLAYER’S SERVICES. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, AND AGAIN UNLESS REQUIRED BY LAW OR PROVIDED IN AN EXPRESS, WRITTEN AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND OPENLAYER, NEITHER OPENLAYER NOR ANYONE ASSOCIATED WITH OPENLAYER REPRESENTS OR WARRANTS THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE ACCURATE, RELIABLE, ERROR-FREE, OR UNINTERRUPTED, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, THAT THE SERVICES ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, OR THAT THE SERVICES WILL OTHERWISE MEET YOUR NEEDS OR EXPECTATIONS.

THE SERVICES MAY BECOME UNAVAILABLE DUE TO MAINTENANCE, OUTAGE, OR ANY OTHER REASON WHATSOEVER. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY WHATSOEVER RELATING TO OR RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS, DELETION OF FILES, LOSS OR MODIFICATION OF CONTENT OR DATA, ERRORS, DEFECTS, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, OR ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, COMMUNICATION FAILURE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO ANY SERVER, RECORDS, PROGRAMS, OR SERVICES, WHETHER OR NOT LIMITED TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL.
NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE SERVICES SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT WILL OPENLAYER, ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES, OR ANY OTHER PERSON ASSOCIATED WITH OPENLAYER (COLLECTIVELY, “OPENLAYER THIRD PARTIES”) BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THOSE FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, OR GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLES, WHETHER THE CLAIM IS BASED UPON CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT, OR OTHER THEORY, RESULTING FROM OR CONCERNING THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR YOUR FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THESE TERMS, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE TOTAL AND AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF OPENLAYER OR ANY OPENLAYER THIRD PARTIES FOR ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR REASON WHATSOEVER EXCEED YOUR FEES PAID TO US, OR, IN THE EVENT YOU HAVE PAID NO FEES, ONE-HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00 USD). YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THESE TERMS IS TO DISCONTINUE THE USE OF THE SERVICES. THE LIABILITY OF ANY PARTY UNDER THESE TERMS SHALL BE CUMULATIVE AND NOT PER INCIDENT. OPENLAYER DISCLAIMS ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS, INJURY, CLAIM, LIABILITY, OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND RESULTING FROM, ARISING OUT OF OR ANY WAY RELATED TO:
YOU MUST COMMENCE ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE USE OF THE SERVICES WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Unless otherwise provided herein or in another express, written agreement between you and Openlayer, notices given by us to you will be given by email. Notices will be sent to the email address you provide to us as part of the registration process, or to updated addresses which you provide to us via notice consistent with this paragraph. Notices given by you to Openlayer must be given by email to email@example.com or such updated address and number as Openlayer may provide you consistently with this notice provision. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, it is your sole responsibility to update your address for notices hereunder, and notice sent to the email address last provided by you to Openlayer shall be valid and binding on you regardless of whether such address has been changed, canceled, has expired, has been terminated, or otherwise becomes inoperative.
All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers, and other communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given: (i) when delivered by hand (with written confirmation of receipt); (ii) when received by the addressee if sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier (receipt requested); (iii) on the date sent by facsimile or email (with confirmation of transmission) if sent during normal business hours of the recipient, and on the next business day if sent after normal business hours of the recipient; or (iv) on the third day after the date mailed, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid.
14. GOVERNING LAW; JURISDICTION AND VENUE
These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California notwithstanding any conflict of law’s provisions. You irrevocably and unconditionally: (i) consent to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of California (the “California Courts”) for any litigation or controversy arising out of or relating to these terms, (ii) agree not to commence any litigation arising out of or relating to these terms except in the California Courts and (iii) agree not to plead or claim that such litigation brought therein has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
If any provision of these terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties with the other provisions remaining in full force and effect. Any failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to in writing. The section titles in these terms are solely used for the convenience of the parties and have no legal or contractual significance. These terms may be assigned in whole or in part by Openlayer. These terms may not be assigned in any manner by you without the express, prior written permission of Openlayer.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver will be in writing and signed by the waiving party.
We may revise these terms at any time in our sole discretion by providing you with email notification of the same. Continued use of our Services following any change constitutes your acceptance of the change.
