IN NO EVENT WILL GLEASON BE LIABLE TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) BASED ON ANY USE OF THIS WEB SITE OR ANY OTHER HYPERLINKED WEB SITE. Your sole remedy against Gleason for dissatisfaction with the Web Site or any Content is to stop using the Web Site or any such Content. This limitation of relief is a part of the bargain between the parties.

If, notwithstanding the other provisions of these Terms, Gleason is found to be liable to you for any damage or loss which arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the Web Site or any Content, Gleason’s liability shall in no event exceed the greater of (1) the total of any subscription or similar fees with respect to any service or feature of or on the Web Site paid in the six months prior to the date of the initial claim made against Gleason, or (2) US$100.00. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations of liability, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.

 

You acknowledge and agree that you will not litigate any claims against Gleason or its affiliates on a class action or representative party basis and that you shall pursue such claims solely on an individual basis.  You further agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Web Site must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.

You agree to indemnify and hold Gleason, its officers, directors, shareholders, predecessors, successors in interest, employees, agents, subsidiaries and affiliates harmless from any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), made against Gleason by any third party due to or arising out of or in connection with your use of the Web Site.

 

Violation of These Terms of Use

Gleason may disclose any information it has about you (including your identity) if it determines that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Web Site, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Gleason’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Web Site. Gleason reserves the right at all times to disclose any information that Gleason deems necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. Gleason also may disclose your information when Gleason determines that applicable law requires or permits such disclosure, including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection purposes.

You acknowledge and agree that Gleason may preserve any transmittal or communication by you with Gleason through the Web Site or any service offered on or through the Web Site, and may also disclose such data if required to do so by law or Gleason determines that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with legal process, (2) enforce these Terms, (3) respond to claims that any such data violates the rights of others, or (4) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Gleason, its employees, users of or visitors to the Web Site, and the public.

You agree that Gleason may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice, terminate your access to the Web Site and/or block your future access to the Web Site if Gleason determines that you have violated these Terms or other agreements or guidelines which may be associated with your use of the Web Site. You also agree that any violation by you of these Terms will constitute an unlawful and unfair business practice, and will cause irreparable harm to Gleason, for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to Gleason seeking any injunctive or equitable relief that Gleason deems necessary or appropriate in such circumstances. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies Gleason may have at law or in equity.

You agree that Gleason may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice, terminate your access to the Web Site for any reason or no reason including, but not limited to, (1) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (2) a request by you (self-initiated account deletions), (3) discontinuance or material modification of the Web Site or any service offered on or through the Web Site, or (4) unexpected technical issues or problems.

If Gleason does take any legal action against you as a result of your violation of these Terms, Gleason will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of such action, in addition to any other relief granted to Gleason. You agree that Gleason will not be liable to you or to any third party for termination of your access to the Web Site as a result of any violation of these Terms.

Applicable Law, Jurisdictional Issues, Severability, and Integration

Unless otherwise specified, this Web Site is controlled by Gleason in New York State. Accordingly, the Terms are governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflicts-of-law and choice-of-laws provisions. If you or Gleason takes legal action relating to these terms, you and Gleason agree to file such action only in the County of Monroe, State of New York, either in the Supreme Court of New York or the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, and you and Gleason consent and submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of those courts for the purposes of litigating any such action.

If any provision of these Terms is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from the Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining Terms. The Terms represent the entire agreement between Gleason and you relating to the subject matter herein, and you shall be responsible for the acts and omissions of your employees and agents in connection with their use of this Web Site.

Gleason’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by it in writing.

Modification

Gleason reserves the right to revise or make changes to this Web Site and these Terms at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to check these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Web Site following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.
