Each party agrees to maintain Confidential Information in confidence and not to disclose it or any portion of it, except to its employees, consultants, and affiliates who have a need to know such Confidential Information and are bound by obligations of confidentiality similar to these API Terms. Each party will use the same care and discretion to avoid disclosure, publication, or dissemination of the Confidential Information as it uses with its own confidential or proprietary information, but in no event less than reasonable care. Neither party will have liability to the other with regard to any Confidential Information that is required to be disclosed by law or court order, provided that the party that received the Confidential Information (“receiving party”) will provide reasonable advance notice to enable the party that provided the Confidential Information (“disclosing party”) to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent such disclosure.

8. Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability
THE TERMS OF THIS SECTION APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW:
8.1 DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. THE API IS PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, POSTSCRIPT MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE API WILL ALWAYS BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT THE API WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS. POSTSCRIPT TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR CUSTOMER DATA, OR LOSS OF DATA OR DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER OR OTHER SYSTEMS THAT RESULTS FROM YOUR USE OF THE API. DEVELOPER AND CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BACKING UP CUSTOMER DATA.
8.2 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. POSTSCRIPT WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR YOUR LOST REVENUES OR PROFITS, OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF (OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE) THE API OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH THESE API TERMS, EVEN IF POSTSCRIPT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF, KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT SUCH DAMAGES WERE POSSIBLE AND EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH THESE API TERMS IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. POSTSCRIPT’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE API OR THESE API TERMS WILL NOT EXCEED $500 (USD).
8.3 Third-Party Disputes. Postscript has no responsibility for any dispute between a Customer and a Developer, or any dispute between a Developer and its Customers’ End Users.

9.1 Termination. Postscript may terminate or suspend your access to the API, or terminate these API Terms, at any time and at Postscript’s sole discretion. Without limiting the foregoing, Postscript may terminate your right to use the API or these API Terms if Postscript determines in its sole discretion that you are in breach of the API Terms, the Platform Terms, or that your use of the API poses a security or legal risk to Postscript or its Customers.

10. Dispute Resolution
10.1 General. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Postscript in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Postscript agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to these API Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE PLATFORM TERMS, YOU AND POSTSCRIPT ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
10.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section 10.1, nothing in these API Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
10.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Postscript will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Postscript. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
10.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail (“Notice”). Postscript’s address for Notice is set forth in Section 11. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or Postscript may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Postscript must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
10.5 Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these API Terms, Postscript will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York, New York, but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Postscript for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. Each party agrees that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. Notwithstanding anything in these API Terms to the contrary, and for the avoidance of doubt, the arbitrator can award injunctive relief as a remedy in any arbitration required under this Section 10.
10.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND POSTSCRIPT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Postscript agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
10.7 Modifications. Except as otherwise provided in these API Terms, if Postscript makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Postscript’s address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to Postscript’s address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and Postscript.
10.8 Enforceability. If Section 10.6 (No Class Actions) is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 10 will be null and void.
11.1 Entire Agreement. These API Terms represent the entire agreement between Developer and Postscript regarding your use of the API, and supersede and replace any and all prior written or oral understandings or agreements between Developer and Postscript, regarding your use of the API.
11.2 Notice. Any notice required or permitted to be made under these API Terms will be in English and in writing. Notice will be deemed to have been fully given and received (a) when delivered personally, (b) five (5) business days after having been sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, (c) one business day after deposit with a commercial overnight carrier, with written verification of such receipt, or (d) to the extent email notice is expressly permitted in these API Terms, when delivered. All notices to Developer may be made to the mailing or email address associated with Developer’s account. Postscript may also provide notices or messages about the API or these API Terms by posting to the Postscript Website. All notices to Postscript will be made to: Stodge Inc. d/b/a Postscript, ATTN: Legal Department, 3370 N Hayden Road, Suite 123-251, Scottsdale AZ 85251, with a copy via email to email@example.com.
11.3 Assignment. You may not assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under these API Terms without Postscript’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these API Terms without such consent will be null and void. Postscript may freely assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under these API Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these API Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
11.4 Governing Law. These API Terms will be governed by and construed under the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of laws principles. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 10, the exclusive jurisdiction for all disputes that you and Postscript are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in New York, New York, and you and Postscript agree to waive all rights to challenge the foregoing.
11.5 Severability. If any term or condition of these API Terms is declared illegal or otherwise unenforceable, it will be severed from the remainder of these API Terms without affecting the legality or enforceability of the remaining portions.
11.6 Waiver. Postscript’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these API Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Postscript. Except as expressly set forth in these API Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these API Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these API Terms or otherwise.
11.7 Independent Products and Services. If you are a Developer, you acknowledge that Postscript may now or in the future independently develop, acquire, or license products and services which are competitive with your products and services, including your Developer App.
11.8 Independent Contractors. Neither you nor Postscript will be deemed an agent of the other, and the relationship between you and Postscript is that of independent contractors.
