You waive and shall not assert any claims or allegations of any nature whatsoever against Aethos, its affiliates or subsidiaries, their sponsors, contractors, advertisers, suppliers, or other partners, any of their successors or assigns, or any of their respective officers, directors, agents or employees (collectively, the “Released Parties”) arising out of or in any way relating to your use of the Aethos Solution or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, including, without limitation, any claims or allegations relating to infringement of proprietary rights, or allegations that any Released Party has or should indemnify, defend or hold harmless you or any third party from any claim or allegation arising from your use or other exploitation of the Aethos Solution or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services. You use the Aethos Solution and any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services at your own risk.

 

Without limiting the foregoing, neither Aethos nor any other Released Party shall be liable for any direct, special, indirect, incidental, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of use, loss of profits or loss of data, whether in an action in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence) or otherwise, arising out of or in any way connected with the use of or inability to use the Aethos Solution or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, including without limitation any damages caused by or resulting from your reliance on the Aethos Solution or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services or other information obtained from Aethos or any other Released Party or accessible via the Aethos Solution or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, or that result from mistakes, errors, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or email, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of god, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to Aethos or any other Released Party’s records, programs or services.

 

In no event shall the aggregate liability of Aethos, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), product liability, strict liability or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of the Aethos Solution exceed any compensation paid by you for access to or use of the Aethos Solution during the three months prior to the date of any such claim.

You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Aethos and the other Released Parties from any loss, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses, claims and proceedings arising out of your or your Authorized Users' use of the Aethos Solution or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, including any claims made by any person that any of your or your Authorized Users' User Content infringes the rights, including the intellectual property rights, of any third party (collectively, “Indemnified Claims”). Aethos reserves the right, in its sole discretion and at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Indemnified Claims. You agree to reasonably cooperate as requested by Aethos in the defense of any Indemnified Claims.

 

10. Communications

 

Notices that we give you (other than notice of amendment of these Terms, which is discussed in the introduction of these Terms) may be provided in any number of ways, depending on the circumstances. For example, we may email you or telephone you at the contact information you provide in your Registration Data. When we post notices on the Site, we post them in the area of the Site suitable to the notice. It is your responsibility to periodically review the Site for notices.

 

Subject to the Privacy Policy, if you send to Aethos or post on the Site in any public area any information, ideas, inventions, concepts, techniques or know-how (“User Submissions”), for any purpose, including the developing, manufacturing and/or marketing or products or services incorporating such information, you acknowledge that Aethos can use the User Submissions without acknowledgment or compensation to you, and you waive any claim of ownership or compensation or other rights you may have in relation to the User Submissions. We actively review User Submissions for new ideas. If you wish to preserve any interest you might have in your User Submissions, you should not post them to the Site or send them to us.

 

11. Applicable Law and Venue

 

You and Aethos explicitly agree that all disputes, claims, or other matters arising from or relating to your use of the Site, the Content, or the Services will be governed by the laws of [Insert Appropriate Jurisdiction]. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms.

 

Except where prohibited by applicable law, any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether pre-existing, present or future) involving Aethos and arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms; (b) the Aethos Solution; (c) oral or written statements, advertisements or promotions relating to these Terms or to the Site, the Content, or the Services; or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms or the Aethos Solution (collectively, a “Claim”), will be referred to and determined by a sole arbitrator (to the exclusion of the courts). If you have a Claim, you should give written notice to arbitrate at the address specified below. If we have a Claim, we will give you notice to arbitrate at your address provided in your Registration Data. Arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the commercial arbitration laws and rules in effect on the date of the notice in the Province of Ontario.

 

To the extent arbitration as described in the immediately preceding paragraph is prohibited by applicable law, you agree that all Claims will be heard and resolved in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in [Insert Appropriate Venue]. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts.

 

If you choose to access the Site or Services from locations other than [Insert Appropriate Jurisdiction], you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other jurisdiction and you agree to indemnify Aethos and the other Released Parties for your failure to comply with any such laws.

 

12. Termination/Modification of License and Site Offerings

 

Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, Aethos reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, without any notice or liability to you, to (a) terminate your license to use the Services, or any portion thereof and the rights of any third party (including Authorized Users) to which you have granted access to your User Content; (b) block or prevent your future access to and use of all or any portion of the Site or Services or Content and the rights of any third party (including Authorized Users) to which you have granted access to your User Content; (c) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Site or Services or Content; and (d) impose limits on the Site or Services or Content.

 

13. Term and Termination of Agreement

 

Subject to the terms of an applicable Enterprise Agreement, order form and/or Statement of Work, the term of these Terms shall be effective for so long as you have a valid and subsisting subscription to the Services in accordance with these Terms.

 

Aethos may terminate these Terms: (i) with 14 days' written notice if you materially breach these Terms and fail to cure such breach within such 14 day period; or (ii) for convenience with 30 days' written notice to you. Upon such termination, you must pay the fees applicable for the balance of the then current billing period. When your Aethos account is terminated, your User Content will be deleted in approximately 45 days, subject to applicable laws. We may also retain an archival copy of your User Content after termination, and you hereby grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable license to maintain such archival copy for our internal business purposes.

 

If these Terms expire or terminate for any reason, Sections 4 to 6, 8 to 14, 16, 18, 19, and any representation or warranty you make in these Terms, shall survive indefinitely.

 

14. Miscellaneous

 

If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Aethos may assign any or all of its rights hereunder to any party without your consent. You are not permitted to assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of Aethos, and any such attempted assignment will be void and unenforceable. Subject to the terms of any Enterprise Agreement that are deemed in such agreement to apply to or interact with these Terms, these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Aethos regarding your use of the Site, Services and the Content, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications whether electronic, oral or written between you and Aethos regarding your use of them. The parties confirm that it is their wish that these Terms, as well as any other documents relating to these Terms, including notices, have been and shall be drawn up in the English language only.

Effective Date: Wednesday September 20, 2023
