LIMSey Terms of Service
Posted: September 5, 2016
Your Stuff & Your Permissions
When you use our Services, you provide us with things like your sample data, test data, test results, attachments, and so on ("Your Stuff"). Your Stuff is yours. These Terms don't give us any rights to Your Stuff except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.
We need your permission to do things like hosting Your Stuff and backing it up. Our Services also provide you with features like photo thumbnails, automatic pass/fail calculations, and searching. These and other features may require our systems to access, store and scan Your Stuff. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.
You're responsible for your conduct, Your Stuff and you must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy. Content in the Services may be protected by others' intellectual property rights. Please don't copy, upload, or download content unless you have the right to do so.
We may review your conduct and content for compliance with these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy. With that said, we have no obligation to do so. We aren't responsible for the content people post and use via the Services.
Please safeguard your password to the Services, make sure that others don't have access to it, and keep your account information current.
Finally, our Services are not intended for and may not be used by people under the age of 13. By using our Services, you are representing to us that you're over 13.
The Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other US and foreign laws. These Terms don't grant you any right, title or interest in the Services, others' content in the Services, LIMSey trademarks, logos and other brand features. We welcome feedback, but note that we may use comments or suggestions without any obligation to you.
Billing. We'll automatically bill you from the date you begin using our Services and on each periodic renewal until cancellation. You're responsible for all applicable taxes, and we'll charge tax when required to do so.
No Refunds. You may cancel your subscription to our Services at any time but you won't be issued a refund unless it's legally required.
Suspensions and Cancellations. Your subscription will remain in effect until it's cancelled or terminated under these Terms. If you don't pay for your subscription on time, we reserve the right to suspend it or cancel your subscription.
Changes. We may change the fees in effect but will give you advance notice of these changes via a message to the email address associated with your subscription.
You're free to stop using our Services at any time. We also reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time at our discretion and without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of the Services if you're not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in a manner that would cause us legal liability, disrupt the Services or disrupt others' use of the Services.
Services "AS IS"
We strive to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can't guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, LIMSEY AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some places don't allow the disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EXCEPT FOR ANY LIABILITY FOR LIMSEY's OR ITS AFFILIATES’ FRAUD, FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION, OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE, IN NO EVENT WILL LIMSEY, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS BE LIABLE FOR:
(A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR
(B) ANY LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY.
THIS WILL BE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT LIMSEY OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
ADDITIONALLY, LIMSEY, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE SERVICES FOR MORE THAN THE GREATER OF $20 OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO LIMSEY FOR THE PAST 12 MONTHS OF THE SERVICES IN QUESTION.
Some places don't allow the types of limitations in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Let's Try To Sort Things Out First. We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against LIMSey, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 30 days of submission, you or LIMSey may bring a formal proceeding.
Judicial forum for disputes. You and LIMSey agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in the federal or state courts of Johnson County, Texas, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and LIMSey consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.
IF YOU’RE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS: We Both Agree To Arbitrate. You and LIMSey agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
We Both Agree To Arbitrate. You and LIMSey agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
Arbitration Procedures. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Johnson (TX), or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees and Incentives. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. LIMSey will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. LIMSey will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you or LIMSey may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Johnson (TX) or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Johnson County, Texas to resolve your claim.
NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed.
These Terms will be governed by Texas law except for its conflicts of laws principles, unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of any other jurisdiction.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and LIMSey with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, Severability & Assignment
LIMSey's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. LIMSey may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account or on this page). By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

If our systems receive a DNT:1 signal from your browser, we'll respond to that signal as outlined here.
We may share information as discussed below, but we won't sell it to advertisers or other third-parties.
