TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WILL THE PLAYHOUSE PARTIES (AS DEFINED BELOW) BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES INCLUDING DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, OR COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OR SUBSTITUTE SERVICES OR PRODUCTS, IN EACH CASE, ARISING OUT OF THE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF OR OTHER ACCESS TO, MISUSE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY CONTENT ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES (INCLUDING, FOR CLARITY, THE SERVICE CONTENT), OR ANY THIRD-PARTY LINKS OR THIRD-PARTY PROMOTIONS, HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF THE PLAYHOUSE PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS, LINE OR SYSTEM FAILURE, OR OTHER TECHNOLOGICALLY HARMFUL MATERIAL THAT MAY INFECT YOUR DEVICE, DATA, OR OTHER PROPRIETARY MATERIAL DUE TO YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES OR TO YOUR DOWNLOADING OF ANY CONTENT FROM SUCH OR ON ANY WEBSITE LINKED TO SUCH. YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE PLAYHOUSE PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DEFAMATORY, DEFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES OR SERVICE CONTENT.

PLAYHOUSE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL OR SUSPEND THE SERVICES AND THE SERVICE CONTENT WITHOUT INCURRING ANY LIABILITY.
BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, THE PLAYHOUSE PARTIES’ LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS FOR SUCH DAMAGES SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. NOTHING IN THESE TERMS EXCLUDES OR LIMITS OUR LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY ARISING FROM OUR NEGLIGENCE, OR OUR FRAUD OR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LIABILITY IF AND ONLY IF SUCH LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE PLAYHOUSE PARTIES’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THESE SERVICES, THE SERVICE CONTENT, OR TERMS (FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, INCLUDING DAMAGES ARISING FROM BREACH OF CONTRACT OR WARRANTY, OR FROM NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY) SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF (I) $50 OR (II) THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO US DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE EXISTENCE OF MORE THAN ONE CLAIM WILL NOT ENLARGE THIS LIMIT.
THE PLAYHOUSE PARTIES ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT YOU MAY SUFFER BECAUSE OF ANY ACT OF GOD; POWER FAILURE; ACT, FAILURE OR OMISSION OF ANY GOVERNMENT OR AUTHORITY; OBSTRUCTION OR FAILURE OF TELECOMMUNICATION SERVICES OR NETWORKS; OR ANY OTHER ACT, OMISSION, DELAY, OR FAILURE CAUSED BY A THIRD PARTY OR OTHERWISE OUTSIDE OF OUR CONTROL.
You agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend (at our option) Playhouse, its affiliates and licensors, any party (excluding you) involved in operating, creating, producing, or delivering the Services or Service Content, including producers of any Shows, and each of their respective current or former officers, owners, directors, shareholders, contractors, agents, representatives, employees, general and limited partners, successors, and assigns (collectively, the “Playhouse Parties”) from and against any and all demands, claims, investigations, damages, awards, liabilities, judgments, fines, interest, penalties, losses, costs, expenses, and harms (including personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property), including reasonable attorneys' fees and fees of other professional advisers, arising out of or in connection with (i) your Use of the Services (including, your Use of the Service Content), (ii) your conduct in connection with the Services or the Service Content, including any information you submit to us or other users, including Your Content and User Footage, (iii) your violation or breach of these Terms or any misrepresentation made by you, (iv) your failure to comply with any applicable laws or regulations in connection with the Services or the Service Content, (v) your negligence, willful misconduct, or violations of the intellectual property or other rights of any person in connection with the Services or the Service Content, or (vi) any of your dealings or transactions with other persons resulting from Use of the Services or the Service Content, including your access to or dealings with Third-Party Links and Third-Party Promotions. Playhouse reserves the right to take exclusive control and defense of any such claim, and you agree to fully cooperate with use in asserting any available defense. You shall not settle any such claim without the prior written consent of Playhouse. These obligations will survive any termination of these Terms.
You may not assign, sublicense, or otherwise transfer these Terms or any rights or obligations herein without the prior written consent of Playhouse and any attempted assignment in contravention of this provision is null and void and of no force or effect. Playhouse has the right to assign, sublicense, or otherwise transfer these Terms, and any of its rights or obligations herein, to any person without requiring any additional consent and without notice. These Terms are binding upon each Party and its respective successors, heirs, trustees, administrators, executors, and permitted assigns.
21. Governing Law, Binding Arbitration, Class Action Waiver, Location, and Time Period for Bringing Notice of Claim
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. BY AGREEING TO MANDATORY, BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE.
These Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the United States and the State of New York without regards to the conflicts of law principles thereof. If any clause or provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses or provisions of these Terms, including the class action waiver. You expressly agree that if you dispute the validity or enforceability of the individual arbitration provision or class action waiver in these Terms, you shall bring such dispute in the courts of New York County, New York, and you expressly consent and agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
All claims arising in connection with your use of the Services or Service Content should be reported and brought to our attention as soon as possible in a written statement delivered to email@example.com. To the maximum extent permitted by law, you permanently and irrevocably waive your rights to bring any claim in connection with your use of the Services or Service Content unless you bring it within one (1) year of the date of the event giving rise to such claim.
EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY TO BE HEARD IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU, ON THE ONE HAND, AND PLAYHOUSE PARTIES, ON THE OTHER HAND, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY.
YOU AGREE THAT PLAYHOUSE AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY AND THAT CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS AND OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU HEREBY AGREE TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION IN COURT OR ARBITRATION.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) (available from the AAA at www.adr.org), as amended by these Terms. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location that is reasonably convenient to the parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination will be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator. If you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will, to the extent required to make this Section 21 enforceable, pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitrator will be bound by these Terms, when not in conflict with applicable law, and the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and final, subject only to limited right of judicial review provided under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. If the arbitrator decides that either the substance of your claim or the remedy you asked for is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, we may use the applicable Rules to determine whether you are responsible for the filing, administrative and arbitrator fees. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local government agencies or from seeking public injunctive relief in court where that right cannot be waived under applicable state law.
22. Equitable Remedies
You agree that (i) a breach of these Terms may result in irreparable harm to Playhouse such that a remedy at law alone would be inadequate, (ii) Playhouse is entitled to seek equitable relief (including injunction) or any other relief that a court may deem proper, and (iii) you will not raise as a defense or an objection to the request for or granting of such equitable relief that any breach of these Terms is or would be compensable by an award of monetary damages.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you (a) acknowledge that your right and remedies in the event of a breach of these Terms by Playhouse will be limited to the right, if any, to recover monetary damages and that monetary damages, if any, are sufficient; and (b) hereby waive any right or remedy in equity, including any injunctive relief, or to enjoin, restrain, or otherwise interfere with the Services and the Service Content.
23. Entire Agreement; Severability; Interpretation
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us concerning the Services and Service Content and supersede and replace in its entirety any and all prior communications, agreements, and understandings between you and us, whether oral or written, and cannot be changed or modified by you except as posted on the Services by us. In the event any provision of these Terms is held unenforceable, it will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and will be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision. In interpreting these Terms, the conjunction “or” will be understood in its inclusive sense (and/or), and use of the words “includes” or “including”, “for example”, or “e.g.” (and their derivatives) will be deemed to be followed with the phrase “without limitation”. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.
24. Relationship Between the Parties; No Third-Party Beneficiaries
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of these Terms or your access to and Use of the Services or Service Content. Unless otherwise expressly stated, nothing in these Terms shall create or confer any rights or remedies on any persons not party to these Terms.
25. No Waiver
Our failure to enforce any provisions of these Terms or respond to a violation by any party does not waive our right to subsequently enforce any terms or conditions of the Terms or respond to any violations. Nothing contained in these Terms is in derogation of our right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your Use of the Services or Service Content or information provided to or gathered by us with respect to such Use.
26. Updates to the Services and these Terms
We may update, modify, supplement or reduce the Services (each, an “Update”) at any time with or without notice. Such Updates may include the release of fixes, patches, updates or upgrades to the Services. We may automatically implement any such Update, and these Terms will apply to all such Updates.
We may amend, modify, supplement, or update these Terms from time to time to accurately reflect our Services and practices and regulatory requirements. Any updated Terms will be posted on this page, and the date on which the then current Terms came into (or will come into) force will be stated on this page. In certain circumstances, we may send you an email or use other means to notify you of any changes. Please check these Terms frequently for updates.
We hope that you will continue Using the Services following any updates to our Terms, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms, you must cease Use of the Services and applicable Service Content. Your continued Use of the Services and applicable Service Content after the effective date of the updated Terms constitutes your acceptance of those terms.

In addition to the other terms set forth herein, the provisions of this Section also apply to you if you obtained the Services from Apple’s App Store. These additional terms should not be read to limit any other provision of these Terms and should not be interpreted to affect the meaning of any other provision of these Terms.

Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Services. In the event of any failure of the Services to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple and Apple may refund any applicable purchase price for the Services to you; but, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Services. Apple is not responsible for addressing any claim by you or any third party relating to the Services or your possession or Use of the Services, including: (i) any product liability claim; (ii) any claim that the Services fail to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) any claim arising under consumer protection, privacy, or similar legislation. Apple is not responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement or discharge of any third party claim that the Services or your possession and Use of the Services infringes any third party’s intellectual property rights. To the extent accessing the Services on an Apple-branded product, you may access and Use the Services only on Apple-branded products that you own or control and as permitted by the usage rules set forth in the App Store Terms of Service. You agree to comply with all applicable third-party terms when Using the Services. Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of these Terms, and, upon your acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third party beneficiary hereunder.
