VII. DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

USE OF THE WEBSITES AND WEBSITE CONTENT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THE WEBSITES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. NEITHER MKP, NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, CONTENT OR SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS (THE “MKP PARTIES”), MAKES ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, SECURITY, ACCURACY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT THE WEBSITES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE; PROVIDED THAT THIS LIMITATION SHALL NOT APPLY TO WARRANTIES WHICH ARE INCAPABLE OF EXCLUSION, RESTRICTION OR MODIFICATION UNDER THE LAWS APPLICABLE TO THESE TERMS OF USE.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE MKP PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUR OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITES, OR THE BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER AS A BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORTIOUS BEHAVIOR, NEGLIGENCE OR ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY APPLIES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TO ANY INJURY OR DAMAGE RESULTING FROM ANY MISTAKES, INTERRUPTION, OMISSION, DELETION OR OTHER DATA LOSS, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, COMPUTER VIRUS, FILE CORRUPTION, NETWORK OR SYSTEM OUTAGE, COMMUNICATION-LINE FAILURE, OR THEFT, DESTRUCTION, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, OR USE OF ANY RECORD.

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. In such states or jurisdictions the MKP Parties’ liability is limited to the extent permitted by law, thereby minimizing the MKP Parties’ liability to you to the lowest amount permitted by applicable law.

VIII. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

If a dispute arises out of these Terms of Use, you and MKP agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the dispute amicably. If the attempt to resolve the dispute amicably is unsuccessful, you and MKP agree to attempt resolution through mediation. The mediation process may be initiated upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the other party. Mediation shall occur in Los Angeles, California, United States of America. The costs of mediation shall be shared equally by both parties. Mediation shall be completed within fifteen (15) days of commencement, unless both parties agree to extend the mediation period or unless the mediator declares both parties to be at an impasse. However, if at any time MKP believes that immediate injunctive relief is required to protect its rights, MKP may invoke the immediate powers of the appropriate court of law without first mediating the dispute.

IX. MISCELLANEOUS

(a) Governing Law and Jurisdictional Issues

This Agreement is governed in all respects by the substantive laws of the State of California and of the United States of America. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly disclaimed. The Websites are controlled and operated from MKP’s offices at 7088 Burkitt Road

This agreement may not be explained or supplemented by any prior course of dealings or trade by custom or usage. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation of these Terms of Use. If any provision of these Terms of Use shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
