The Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice. Members may post content to the Website, which may include copyrighted works. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C.

Any claim regarding potentially infringing posted material should be sent to: 5000fish, Inc. 2201 Cooperative Way Drive Suite 600 Herndon, VA 20171; 1-855-GET-5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org attention: David Ferguson (our agent for notice of infringement claims).
Communications Decency Act Notice. Under the Communications Decency Act, 47 U.S.C. Section 230 (“CDA”), The Company is not liable for defamation or other claims arising from User Content posted to the Website. Because it permits posting by user, the Company’s Website is an “interactive computer service” under the CDA. The Company is not responsible for, and does not exercise any editorial or other control over, any User Content, but rather merely serves as a “publisher” of User Content.
Third Party Claims and Indemnification
The Company’s exclusive indemnification obligations to subscribers of the Software are set forth in the MSA, provided however, that the Company will not be obligated to indemnify you if you are in violation of this Agreement.
If as a result of any infringement or misappropriation by the Company the use of any Services or material on the Website is enjoined by a court of law, the Company will modify such Services or material to make it non-infringing, acquire a license to permit continued its access and use, or if neither option is possible, refund any applicable fees directly relating to the infringing Services or material, if any, paid by you during the 12 month period preceding the injunction. This is your exclusive remedy for a third party’s infringement or misappropriation claim against your use of the Website.
EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE WARRANTED IN THE MSA, THE PORTAL INCLUDING ALL RELATED CONTENT AND MATERIALS, AS WELL AS THE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS, AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITH ALL FAULTS. THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND PARTNERS MAKE NO WARRANTY, REPRESENTATION, GUARANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE WITH RESPECT TO THE PORTAL OR ANY OF THE CONTENT, SERVICES, PRODUCTS, SOFTWARE OR OTHER MATERIALS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE PORTAL INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR NONINFRINGEMENT, OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE.
THE COMPANY MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY INFORMATION ON THE PORTAL. ANY INFORMATION ABOUT COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS IS NOT TO BE USED OR DISTRIBUTED WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER THE COMPANY NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR PARTNERS WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THE SERVICES OR THE SOFTWARE, SERVICES, THE PORTAL OR ITS CONTENT OR OTHER MATERIALS, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE OR LOSS OF DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES. IN ANY JURISDICTION THAT DOES NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, THE COMPAN’S LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND PARTNERS WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND EXCEPT AS MAY OTHERWISE BE PROVIDED IN THE MSA, THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND PARTNERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES THAT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO THE COMPANY FOR SERVICES DURING THE TWELVE MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM.
Discontinuance of Service and Force Majeure.
The Company reserves the right, in our sole discretion and without prior notice, to modify or discontinue any Services or the Website. We shall not be liable to any user or any third party in the event of such discontinuance. You acknowledge and accept that the Company does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to the Website and operation of the Website may be interfered with or adversely affected by numerous factors or circumstances outside of our control.
Except for payments by a subscriber, if the performance of this Agreement by either party is prevented, hindered, delayed or otherwise made impracticable by reason of any flood, riot, fire, judicial or governmental action, labor disputes, act of God or any other causes beyond the control of such party, that party will be excused from such to the extent that it is prevented, hindered or delayed by such causes.
Disputes and Arbitration.
Any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Website will be finally settled by arbitration, except that the Company may bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction with respect to any dispute affecting the Company’s intellectual property rights whether statutory or contractual. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy or claim will be arbitrated on an individual basis and will not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration will be conducted in Clark County, Nevada or Reston, Virginia, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator has no authority to award damages in excess of those permitted in this Agreement for any reason. Any award in excess of such limitation will be deemed void as between the parties. The parties will share the arbitration fees equally; provided, however, that the prevailing party may recover attorney’s fees and all arbitration costs from the losing party.
If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release the Company, and the Company’s officers, directors, agents, affiliates and employees, from claims, demands, and direct or indirect damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident or incorporated in California, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not known or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
