18. Liquidated Damages
User and Property Matrix agree that both the User and Property Matrix have and will commit substantial resources to the implementation of the Content and the Service, and that by implementing the Content and the Service the User and Property Matrix may be exposed to loss and/or damage(s) in connection with the use, implementation, and reliance on the Service and/or the Content. User and Property Matrix acknowledge and agree that it would be difficult and impractical for the parties to determine the actual harm, if any, to User in the event of any failure, defect, error, or fault of the Content, the Service, or of Property Matrix and/or its staff, employees, technicians, directors, officers, and agents, whether such failure, defect, error, or fault was caused by the action, inaction, omission, intentional act, negligent act, wrongful act, willful act, unintentional act, and/or any other reason whatsoever of any individual, entity, software, and/or hardware, including without limitation any unintentional actions, conduct, consequences, results, and/or transmissions by, through, using, and/or due to the Service and/or the Content. Notwithstanding such difficulty, User and Property Matrix hereby agree to quantify and monetize any and all damage, harm, and impairment that User and/or any individual, entity, person, and/or group that may use, access, or rely on the Service and/or the Content, may suffer as result of any reason whatsoever in connection with (i) the Service; (ii) the Content; and (iii) Property Matrix, setting such quantified and monetized damage at a liquidated damages sum of seven hundred and fifty dollars ($750.00) for all acts, damages, harm, losses, claims, and/or impairment, that User may incur in any twelve (12) month period, irrespective of whether the damage, harm, or impairment was/were caused by a single event, a multiplicity of events, a single action or inaction, or a multiplicity of actions or inactions, whether inadvertent, intentional, or otherwise.
19. Force Majeure
Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement or for any damage or loss due to any event or circumstance beyond its reasonable control including, but without limitation, any delay, failure, damage or loss due to fire, flood, theft, storm, explosion, data connectivity issue, transmission errors, internet connection issues, satellite interference, communications errors, any act of God, industrial disturbance, failure of electrical supply or telecommunication networks, vandalism, sabotage or civil disturbance (“Force Majeure”). No later than twelve (12) months after discovery of the existence of the Force Majeure event, the party claiming the existence of Force Majeure shall give notice in writing to the other party specifying the cause and extent of the event(s), error(s), inability to perform, or other failure(s), and/or its failure or inability to comply with its obligations, and the likely duration of such delay or non-performance, or of the indefinite termination of the subscription, and shall take all reasonable steps to remedy or abate the Force Majeure. Non-performance by either of the parties of any of its obligations under this Agreement shall be excused during the time and to the extent that such performance is prevented or hindered, wholly or in part, by Force Majeure.
20. Additional Rights
Certain states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental, consequential or certain other types of damages. To the narrow and limited extent that any of the foregoing disclaims liability for warranties or liability which may not be disclaimed under the governing jurisdiction interpreting or enforcing this Agreement, so disclaimers shall not apply to User. In such an event, User expressly assumes onto itself the risk of loss, risk of harm, and risk of any and all damages resulting from any breach of any such non-excludable warranty or limitation of liability. In the event that any portion, provision, clause, or phrase, of this Agreement is determined by a Court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unlawful, or unenforceable, such portion, provision, clause, or phrase shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement and shall not in any respect nullify, void, or otherwise impair the enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement. The parties desire that any adjudicating body enforcing this Agreement give effect to its purpose and intent to the fullest extent as permitted by law. The unenforceability of any provision(s) hereto shall in no way affect any other provision hereto, and further shall not alter the validity or enforceability of any other provision hereto.
21. Local Laws and Export Control
