However, we do not warrant that the content or features on the Bandwidth websites are accurate, complete, current, useful, uninterrupted, free of technical or typographical errors, that any errors will be corrected, or that your use of the Bandwidth websites will provide specific results. It is your responsibility to verify any information before relying on it. We reserve the right to make changes and updates to any content contained within the Bandwidth websites without prior notice.
Access to, and use of, the Bandwidth websites and the content is at your own risk. We have provided links to certain third-party websites solely for your convenience, but we are not responsible for the content of any third-party websites and do not endorse those websites. If you navigate to a third-party website from any of the Bandwidth websites, we encourage you to review and become familiar with the third-party’s privacy policies and terms. You should take appropriate precautions to ensure that whatever websites and content you select for your use or view is free of destructive items, such as viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses, and other items of a destructive nature.
THE BANDWIDTH WEBSITES AND ALL CONTENT, MATERIALS, AND INFORMATION, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, NEITHER BANDWIDTH NOR ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING OR DELIVERING THE BANDWIDTH WEBSITES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INDIRECT OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF YOUR ACCESS, USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE BANDWIDTH WEBSITES OR ANY OTHER HYPERLINKED WEBSITE, OR ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN THE CONTENT THEREOF, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.
IF, NOTWITHSTANDING THE OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS, BANDWIDTH IS FOUND TO BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGE, OR LOSS WHICH ARISES OUT OF OR IS IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH YOUR USE OF THE BANDWIDTH WEBSITES OR ANY CONTENT, MATERIALS, OR INFORMATION, BANDWIDTH’S LIABILITY SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED U.S. $100.00. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, SO THE FOREGOING LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You must comply with all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations when you use the Bandwidth websites. Any attempt by anyone to deliberately damage, attack, disable, overburden, or impair the Bandwidth websites is a violation of criminal and civil laws. We reserve the right to seek damages from anyone doing so to the fullest extent permitted by law. Neither we nor our lawyers are kidding.
You also will not post or transmit through the Bandwidth websites any material or content that violates or infringes in any way the rights of others, solicits, encourages or promotes the use of illegal substances or activities, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, derogatory, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, bigoted or hateful, profane, scandalous, pornographic, indecent or otherwise objectionable, gives rise to civil or criminal liability or otherwise violates any applicable law.
Bandwidth is under no obligation to monitor the content of the Bandwidth websites (or any server used in connection with these websites). However, anyone using the Bandwidth websites agrees that we may monitor the Bandwidth websites (and any server used in connection with the Bandwidth websites) to: (1) comply with any necessary laws, regulations or other governmental requests; (2) to operate the server properly; and (3) to protect ourselves. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, reject, or eliminate any material submitted to, posted on or transmitted on the Bandwidth websites that we find to be in violation of these Terms. You are solely responsible for any information you submit, post, or transmit on the Bandwidth websites.
Bandwidth’s Privacy Notice, including our Cookie Notice, applies to the use of the Bandwidth websites and is made part of these Terms by this reference. We encourage you to read our Privacy Notice here [Link].
We control the Bandwidth websites from the United States. We make no representation that all products and services are available worldwide. We reserve the right to limit, in our sole discretion, the provision and quantity of any product or service to any person or geographic area. If you choose to access the Bandwidth websites from outside of the United States, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws.
If we do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration in Wake County, North Carolina in accordance with the then current rules of the American Arbitration Association, rather than in court. The internal laws of the State of North Carolina (other than conflicts of law rules) and of the United States of America shall apply. A single arbitrator engaged in the practice of law shall conduct the arbitration. There is no judge or jury in arbitration and the arbitrator’s decision and award shall be final and binding and may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. If any of the provisions of these Terms are held void or unenforceable, such provisions will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that maintains the intent of these Terms so that these Terms shall remain in full force and effect and such holding will not impair the validity, legality, or enforceability of the remaining provisions. Our failure or neglect to enforce any of our rights under these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of that or any other rights we have. These Terms will not be construed to provide any rights or remedies on any third-parties. Any disputes or claims under these Terms must be brought within one (1) year after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. The section headings contained in these Terms are for reference purposes only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.
YOU AND BANDWIDTH EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or Bandwidth may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
