Disputes and Governing Law

Use of this Website, the Services and Software and these Terms of Use shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York of the United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. In the event that any portion of these Terms of Use are deemed unenforceable, unlawful or void by a tribunal of competent jurisdiction, in any jurisdiction for any reason, unless narrowed by construction, such portion of these Terms of Use shall, for purposes of such jurisdiction only, be construed as if such invalid, prohibited or unenforceable portion had been more narrowly constructed so as not to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable (or if such provision cannot be drawn narrowly enough, the tribunal making any such determination shall have the power to modify such portion of these Terms of Use to the extent necessary to make such portion of these Terms of Use enforceable in such jurisdiction, and such portion shall then be applicable in such modified form in such jurisdiction). If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such portion of these Terms of Use would be held to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason, such portion, as to such jurisdiction only, shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, prohibition or unenforceability, without invalidating the remaining provisions set forth in these Terms of Use. No narrowed construction, modification or invalidation of any portion of the Terms of Use shall affect the construction, validity or enforceability of such portion in any other jurisdiction. No waiver by Kit Plugins of any term or condition of these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or of any other term or condition, and Kit Plugins’ failure to assert any right or demand compliance with any provision of these Terms of Use shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of any such right or provision.

Except where prohibited by law, as a condition of your acceptance of these Terms of Use and/or accessing and/or using this Site and the Software, you agree that (1) any and all disputes and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Site and/or the Software shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by final and binding arbitration in New York within one year from the date that the cause of action arose (or, if multiple cause of actions are involved, from the date that the first cause of action arose), with such arbitration conducted pursuant to the then prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association; and (2) judgment upon such arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by law, no arbitration brought pursuant hereto shall be joined to any other action or arbitration.

Except as otherwise provided, agreeing to these Terms of Use as regards arbitration constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.

To the fullest extent permitted at law, under no circumstances will you be permitted to obtain an award for, and by accessing and/or using the Site and the Software you waive all rights to claim, punitive, incidental, consequential or any other damages (including multiplied and/or increased damages and/or attorneys' fees and court costs) for, any dispute or cause of action that you may have that relates in whole or part to this Website, Software, the Services and/or the Materials. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in these Terms of Use or otherwise, your recovery with respect to any and all claims, judgments, and awards for which you are entitled shall, to the fullest extent permitted at law, be limited to your actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, excluding attorneys’ fees and court costs.
