- Disclaimer, Limitation on Liability & Indemnity
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we exclude completely all liability whatsoever for any claims, liability, loss or damage of any kind however caused (including negligence) arising out of or in connection with any goods or services provided by us including the Service and its access, use or performance.
Notwithstanding the above, to the maximum extent permitted by law, in no event shall our aggregate liability for any claims arising out of or related to these Terms exceed the greater of five hundred dollars ($500) or the amount that you paid, if any, to us for access to or use of the Service during the six months period immediately prior to the event giving rise to such liability.
You agree to indemnify RT3 and its related parties, officers, agents and employees (Indemnified Parties) in respect of any claim, action, damage, loss, liability, cost, charge, expense, outgoing or payment, including legal expenses (on a full indemnity basis) arising from or relating to: (i) your use of the Service; (ii) a breach of these Terms by you; and (iii) your breach of any applicable law.
We may update or modify these Terms from time to time, including any referenced policies and other documents. If we modify these Terms during the Term, the modified version will be effective upon your next renewal of the Term, as applicable. In this case, if you object to the updated Terms, as your exclusive remedy, you may choose not to renew your membership.
These Terms are governed by the laws of Florida and the parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Hillsborough County, Florida.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable that provision shall be deemed omitted to the extent that it is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable and the remainder of the Terms shall be construed in a manner as to give greatest effect to the original intention of these Terms.
The waiver of any right or failure of either of us to exercise in any respect any right provided in these Terms in any instance shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such right in the future or a waiver of any right under these Terms.
Neither party will be liable for inadequate performance to the extent caused by a condition (for example, natural disaster, act of war or terrorism, riot, labor condition, governmental action, and internet disturbance) that was beyond the party’s reasonable control (Force Majeure).
