Exclusions and Limitations
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY AND DAMAGES MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT THAT PROVIDE FOR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES ALLOCATE RISKS BETWEEN YOU AND elitesubmit. THAT ALLOCATION IS REFLECTED IN THE DELIVERY OF FREE CONTENT TO YOU BY elitesubmit, AND IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
You agree to hold harmless and indemnify elitesubmit, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from and against any third-party claim arising from or in any way related to your use of the Site, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature. elitesubmit will make reasonable efforts to provide you with written notice of any such claim, suit or action, but the failure of elitesubmit to provide such notice will not relieve you of these obligations.
If any provision of these TOS is found invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of the TOS will remain in force.
The failure of elitesubmit to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the TOS remain in full force and effect.
