REPRESENTATION AND WARRANTY
ALL SERVICES, MATERIALS, AND INFORMATION PROVIDED BY GOBY CREATIVE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, AND GOBY CREATIVE MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT SHALL GOBY CREATIVE BE LIABLE FOR ANY LIABILITY WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL GOBY CREATIVE BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, CONTRACTS, PRODUCTION OR USE.
The Member acknowledges that because of the special nature of Goby Creative it is reasonable for Goby Creative to exclude liability as above and for the Member to take measures, including insurance where appropriate, to mitigate or prevent any potential losses that may arise (provided that such measures are not in breach of these Terms and Conditions).
If any third party makes or threatens to make any claim (or if, in the opinion of Goby Creative such a claim is likely) that the use by the Member of any Materials or other Information provided by Goby Creative infringes any intellectual property right of such third party, Goby Creative may, at its option, either secure the Member’s right to continue using the Materials, make the Materials non-infringing, or withdraw the Materials on one (1) month’s written notice whereupon the Member shall not be authorized to make any further use of the materials. This sub-clause states the entire responsibility of Goby Creative concerning infringement of third party intellectual property rights.
The Membership Agreement shall automatically renew upon each monthly anniversary date, at the then applicable fee for Member’s original membership fee, unless terminated in accordance with “Termination” below.
The Membership Agreement may be terminated:
- By either party giving to the other thirty (30) days notice in writing before any monthly anniversary of the date hereof after the initial required membership term of twelve (12) months.
- By Goby Creative on written notice to the Member if the Member has committed any material breach of the Membership Agreement and in the case of a breach capable of being remedied, has failed to remedy the breach, within 30 days after the receipt of a written request from Goby Creative notifying the Member of such breach.
- By Goby Creative on written notice to the Member if the Member fails to pay any sum(s) due to Goby Creative under the Membership Agreement and such sum(s) remain unpaid for thirty (30) days after written notice from Goby Creative that such sum(s) have not been paid.
For the avoidance of doubt, termination of the Membership Agreement for any reason shall not entitle the Member to any refund of the monthly fee paid, and any and all undue or unpaid invoices shall be due and payable.
These Terms and Conditions may be modified by the inclusion by Goby Creative of additional requirements or terms on ninety (90) days written notice to the Member. In the event that the Member does not agree to such additional requirements, the Member may resign from Goby Creative upon thirty (30) days written notice. The Member shall not be entitled to a refund of membership fees pursuant to such resignation.
The Membership Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah.
If any provision of the Membership Agreement is for any reason declared illegal in any country, all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect to the fullest extent permitted by such law.
For the avoidance of any doubt, any such finding of illegality in any country shall not affect the validity of any provisions of the Membership Agreement in other countries.
