2. MODIFICATIONS OF TERMS OF USE LBS reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace the Terms of Use at any time without notice. If the alterations constitute a material change to the Terms of Use, LBS will notify you by posting an announcement on the Site.

LBS will terminate access for subscribers and account holders who are repeat infringers.

7. INDEMNITY You will indemnify and hold harmless LBS, its affiliates, customers, vendors, officers and employees from any liability, damage or cost (including reasonable attorneys. fees and cost) from (i) any claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of your access to the Site, use of the Services, violation of the Terms of Use by you, or the infringement by you, or any third party using your account or LBS User ID, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.

SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

 

11.

12. MISCELLANEOUS No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of the Terms of Use and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind LBS in any respect whatsoever. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. LBS shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond LBS’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including “line-noise” interference). If any provision of the Terms of Use is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms of Use shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The Terms of Use is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with LBS’s prior written consent. LBS may transfer, assign or delegate the Terms of Use and its rights and obligations without consent. The Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as if made within Massachusetts between two residents thereof, and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Suffolk County, Massachusetts Superior Court and the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, (but without limiting LBS’s right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction), any disputes arising with respect to this Agreement shall be referred to an arbitrator affiliated with JAMS, The Resolution Experts. The arbitrator shall be selected by joint agreement of the parties. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of the initiating party providing the other party with written notice that it plans to seek arbitration, the parties shall each select an arbitrator affiliated with JAMS, which arbitrators shall jointly select a third such arbitrator to resolve the dispute. The written decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties. The arbitration proceeding shall be carried on and heard in Boston, Massachusetts using the English language and pursuant to the rules of JAMS. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under the Terms of Use, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees. Both parties agree that the Terms of Use is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of the Terms of Use, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein.
