9.     Limitation of Liability

In no event shall we, our managers, members, employees, licensors, suppliers, or agents, be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages whatsoever resulting from your access to or use of the Sites, Content, Interactive Services, User Submissions or the products and services available on the Sites. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. The maximum total liability to us, our managers, members, employees, licensors, suppliers, or agents to you for any claim under these Terms of Use, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, is $100.00 and, in the event of any breach by us of these Terms of Use, User shall be limited to User's remedy at law for these monetary damages, if any, and shall not have the right to terminate or rescind the licenses granted herein or to in any way enjoin or restrain our exploitation of the User Submissions. Each provision of the Terms of Use that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is to allocate the risks under this agreement between the parties. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of the Terms of Use. The limitations in this Section 9 will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpose.

The Sites are controlled and offered by us from our facilities in the United States of America. We make no representations that the Sites are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Sites from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with their local law.
