Except as prohibited by law, you will hold DMM and its officers, directors, employees and agents harmless for any indirect, punitive, special, incidental or consequential damage, however it arises (including attorneys' fees and all related costs and expenses of litigation and arbitration, or at trial or on appeal, if any, whether or not litigation or arbitration is instituted), whether in an action of contract, negligence or other tortious action, or arising out of or in connection with these Terms, including without limitation any claim for personal injury or property damage, arising from (i) your use of and access to the Services; (ii) your violation of any of these Terms; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that your content caused damage to a third party. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms and your use of the Services.
When these Terms come to an end, all of the legal rights, obligations and liabilities that you and DMM have benefited from, been subject to (or which have accrued over time whilst the Terms have been in force) or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, shall be unaffected by this cessation, and the provisions of this agreement shall continue to apply to such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.
GENERAL LEGAL TERMS
The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and DMM and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which DMM may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and DMM in relation to the Services.
You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services, which DMM provides, may change from time to time with or without prior notice to you.
As part of DMM’s continuing innovation, you acknowledge and agree that DMM may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services to you or to users generally at DMM’s sole discretion, without prior notice to you. You may stop using the Services at any time.
Unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with DMM, you agree that you will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade or resell the Services for any purpose. You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that DMM has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under the Terms and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which DMM may suffer) of any such breach.
You acknowledge and agree that while DMM may not currently have set a fixed limit on the number of transmissions you may send, receive or store/manage through the Services, such fixed limits may be set by DMM at any time, at DMM’s discretion.
You agree that if DMM does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which DMM has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of DMM’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to DMM.
If any disagreement or dispute arises regarding these Terms or any rights or obligations conveyed hereunder, the disagreement shall be resolved, whenever possible, by meeting and conferring. If such efforts are unsuccessful, either you or DMM (collectively “Parties” or individually “Party”) shall seek a resolution via binding arbitration, to be conducted in the State of California and in accordance with the then-prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any award conferred shall be enforceable in any court of suitable jurisdiction in the State of California. The arbitration requirement does not apply to requests for injunctive relief.
The Terms, and your relationship with DMM under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, USA, without regard to conflict of laws provisions. You and DMM agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of Delaware to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that DMM shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms, which will remain in full force and effect.
