- Disclaimer of Warranties
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS” AND MMI DISCLAIMS, AND THESE TERMS EXPRESSLY EXCLUDES, ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY (A) OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, (B) THAT THE SERVICES ARE ERROR-FREE, FAULT-TOLERANT, OR FAIL-SAFE, WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, ARE COMPATIBLE WITH ALL EQUIPMENT AND SOFTWARE CONFIGURATIONS, OR THAT ALL NON-CONFORMITIES CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED, (C) OF NONINTERFERENCE, SYSTEM INTEGRATION, OR NONINFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. MMI MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH REGARD TO ANY THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS, THIRD PARTY CONTENT OR ANY SOFTWARE, EQUIPMENT, OR HARDWARE OBTAINED FROM THIRD PARTIES. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE DISCRETION AND RISK. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, MMI DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES SHALL BE ERROR-FREE, UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR VIRUS-FREE.
- Limitation of Liability
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL MMI, OUR EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS (THE “DISCLAIMING ENTITIES”) BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES WHICH MAY BE INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF THE TYPE OF CLAIM OR THE NATURE OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION, EVEN IF THE DISCLAIMING ENTITY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE OR LOSS. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS MMI AND THE DISCLAIMING ENTITIES FROM ALL CLAIMS, LOSSES, DAMAGES, PENALTIES, LIABILITY AND COSTS, INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES, OF ANY KIND OR NATURE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO A CLAIM (A) YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IN VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS; (B) OUR PROVISION OF THE SERVICES TO YOU; (C) YOUR APPLICANT DATA; (D) YOUR BREACH OR ALLEGED BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES MADE BY YOU HEREUNDER OR YOUR VIOLATION OF ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THESE TERMS; OR (E) YOUR VIOLATION OF ANY LAW OR THE RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY.
- Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT CONTAINS A CLASS ACTION WAIVER, REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES, AND CLAIMS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM MMI. You agree that any dispute, controversy or claim between you and MMI arising out of or relating to: (a) these Terms, or the breach thereof; (b) our provision of the Services to you; (c) your access to or use of the Services; or (d) any alleged violation of any federal, state, or local law, statute, or ordinance (each such dispute, controversy or claim, a “Dispute”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
We want to address your concerns without the necessity of a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against MMI, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting MMI. MMI will make a good faith effort to resolve the Dispute informally. If a Dispute is not resolved within 30 days after you contact us, you or we may bring a formal proceeding.
You and MMI each agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in King County, Washington, or any other location we agree to. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or MMI may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in King County, Washington or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described above.
You may only resolve Disputes with MMI on an individual basis and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed under these Terms.
If any dispute arises between the parties with respect to the matters covered by these Terms which leads to a proceeding to resolve such dispute, the prevailing party in such proceeding shall be entitled to receive its reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees and out-of-pocket costs incurred in connection with such proceeding, in addition to any other relief it may be awarded. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
