Disclaimer of Warranties


Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability

Agriplex and its affiliates and their respective members, managers, officers, employees, contractors and agents (in each case, a “Released Party”) shall not be liable for any direct, indirect incidental, consequential, or punitive or other damages or losses of any kind whatsoever arising out of your access to, or use of, the Website, including but not limited to any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, defect or computer virus, or the deletion, failure to store, misdelivery or unavailability of any information, material, products, services or features, even if advised of the possibility of such damages or losses. Each Released Party’s maximum liability to you for all claims, including but not limited to negligence, shall in no event exceed one dollar (US$1.00).


Indemnity and Release

As a material inducement to provide you with use of the Website, by using the Website, (i) you release each Released Party from any and all claims, demands, damages, costs and expenses of any kind whatsoever relating in any way to use of the Website or any materials downloaded from this Website and (ii) you indemnify, defend and hold each Released Party harmless from and against any and all demands, damages, liability, claims, actions, demands and costs incurred by such Released Party in connection with any claim arising out of any breach by you of this Agreement, including, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
If you have a dispute involving the Website with a third party, you release each Released Party from all claims, demands, damages, liability, claims, actions, demands and costs of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
Each party recognizes and agrees that the warranty disclaimers and liability and remedy limitations in these Terms are material bargained for bases of this agreement and that they have been taken into account and reflected in determining the consideration to be given by each party under this agreement and in the decision by each party to enter into this agreement. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or certain forms of damages, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.

All other Trademarks, publicity rights and other rights are the property of their respective owners. You do not have any license or right, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, to use any Trademark, image or other material displayed on the Website without the written permission of Agriplex or the third party that may own the relevant material.

We will respond as quickly as practical to any claims that infringing material appears on the Website, including investigating any such claims and taking any appropriate action under applicable laws. If we receive a notice of infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “Act”), we will take steps to remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material, including any links thereto. We may terminate access for any person who is a repeat infringer. Notices of alleged infringement should be sent to:

  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site

If we remove or disable access to any allegedly infringing material, we may attempt to contact the person who has posted that material to give that person a chance to respond. If there is a response, we will share it with the party who originally complained about the alleged infringement, and will give that party an opportunity to seek a court order or other judicial relief in accordance with the Act before we replace or restore access to the allegedly infringing material.
