We do not guarantee, represent, or warrant that your use of our Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free. You agree that from time-to-time we may interrupt the service for indefinite periods-of-time or cancel the service at any time, without notice to you. You agree that your use of, or inability to use, the service is at your sole risk. The service and all products and services delivered to you through the service are (except as expressly stated by us) provided “as is” and “as available” for your use, without any representation, warranties, or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, fitness for a particular purpose, durability, title, and non-infringement.

In no case shall we (including our directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, interns, suppliers, service providers, and licensors) be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of the Service or any products procured using the Service, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the Service. This limit shall apply even if we have been advised of the possibility of such injuries, losses, or claims. Moreover, you agree that all use of the Service shall be at your own risk. We shall have no liability for (1) any injury, loss, or claim for any interruption, suspension, or disruption of the Service; (2) any errors or inaccuracies in the content available from the Service; (3) personal injury or property damages resulting from your use of the Service or the data contained therein; or (4)  malware which may be transmitted using the Service by a third party. 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, our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Any cause of action or claim you may have arisen out of or relating to these Terms of Service must be commenced within 1 year after the cause of action accrues; otherwise, you agree that such cause of action or claim shall be permanently barred.

We shall not be liable for failure to perform occasioned by an event outside of our reasonable control (a “Force Majeure” event) including: strikes, lockouts, labor difficulties, riots, inability or difficulty in obtaining or procuring supplies, labor, or transportation, fires, storms, floods, earthquakes, explosions, pandemics, accidents, acts of God, interference by civil or military authorities, whether legal or de facto, acts of the public enemy, war, rebellion, insurrection, sabotage, embargoes, trade wars, or orders given by public authority.


You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us harmless, along with our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms of Service (including the documents they incorporate by reference), or your violation of any law or the rights of any third party.


In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service without affecting the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.


These Terms of Service, including any materials incorporated by reference, constitute the entire agreement between us. These Terms of Service supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications, and proposals, whether oral or written, between us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service). Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the drafting party. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.


These Terms of Service and any dispute thereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota without applying Minnesota choice-of-law rules. You agree that any claim or dispute with us shall be resolved in the federal or state courts within Hennepin County, Minnesota and you further expressly consent and agree to the exercise of personal jurisdiction by such state and federal courts sitting in connection with any such dispute. You also waive any objection to the resolution of any dispute between us in such courts on the basis of improper venue or forum non conveniens.  Any cause of action by you must be instituted within one year after the claim or cause of action has arisen, or be barred.
