THIRD PARTY LINKS
There may be links that make it easier for you to connect to third party sites or that will let you access the Platforms from third party sites. Linked third party sites are not under the control of DM, and DM is not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any link contained in the linked site. Existence of links to other third party sites is not an endorsement by DM in favor of such site or the products or services contained in any linked site. If you choose to access a third party website linked to any of the Platforms, you do so entirely AT YOUR OWN RISK. Concerns regarding services or resources or links should be directed to the provider of the third party service or resource. DM at all times reserves the irrevocable right to rescind consent for any link to any third party website through the Platforms and to take any legal action it deems appropriate.
From time to time in the course of using the Platforms and Materials, you may have access to certain confidential information of DM ("DM Confidential Information"). For clarity, as used in these Terms, "DM Confidential Information" means all nonpublic or proprietary information disclosed by or on behalf of DM, otherwise learned by you in the course of using the Platforms and Materials, which is (i) designated as confidential or proprietary; or (ii) a reasonable person would conclude is confidential or proprietary. DM Confidential Information includes, but is not limited to, the following (whether furnished before or after you start using the Platforms and Materials, whether disclosed orally, electronically, in writing or visual inspection of the Platforms and Materials): (a) graphics and content documentation, proprietary software applications, program modules, routines and subroutines, file layouts, displays, diagrams, graphs, sketches, algorithms, design specifications, annotations, documentation, flowcharts, coding sheets, drawings, models, source code and object code, together with all new versions, releases, updates, modifications, improvements, enhancements, patches and bug fixes; (b) information relating to DM's know-how, processes, techniques, practices, methodologies, policies and procedures, manuals and handbooks, testing, research and development; (c) information regarding acquiring, protecting, enforcing and licensing DM’s proprietary rights including intellectual property rights; (d) information relating to DM’s employees, partners and customers; and (e) any and all copies, reproductions, notes, analyses, compilations, studies, interpretations and summaries of any of the above items, regardless of who prepares them. Notwithstanding the foregoing, DM Confidential Information does not include any information that you can demonstrate by documentary evidence (1) is or has become publicly available through no wrongful act or omission attributable to you; (2) is or becomes rightfully known to you through a third party who is not subject to a restriction on disclosure; or (3) is independently developed by you without the use of or reference to DM Confidential Information.
You agree not to use DM Confidential Information for any purpose other than as required to use the Platforms and Materials in accordance with these Terms (the "Purpose"). You agree to hold all DM Confidential Information in strict confidence using at least the degree of care you would use to protect your most sensitive information and in no event less than a reasonable degree of care. You agree to not publish, disseminate, or otherwise disclose, or permit or facilitate the disclosure of, any DM Confidential Information to any third party. To the extent required for the Purpose as authorized by DM in writing, you may disclose DM Confidential Information only to your employees, directors, officers and agents ("Representatives") who have a need to know such information to carry out the Purpose and are bound to obligations of confidentiality (either by written agreement or Applicable Law) which are no less restrictive than those set forth in these Terms. You agree to be responsible for all acts and omissions of your Representatives. Any copy, extract, portion, or derivative of DM Confidential Information shall be identified as belonging to DM and prominently marked "confidential."
The Platforms are controlled and operated by DM from its corporate headquarters in Torrance, California, and are not intended to subject DM to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country, or territory other than that of California and of the United States of America. DM does not represent or warrant that the Platforms or other Materials, or any aspect thereof, are appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access the Platforms or the Materials do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with local laws. DM may limit the availability of the Platforms and Materials to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction it chooses, at any time in DM’s sole discretion.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless DM and each of the DM Parties from and against any third party claim, suit, demand or action for damages arising from: (a) your use or modification or alteration of the Platforms or Materials; (b) any Harmful Code transmitted by you; and (c) any breach of these Terms by you or your Representatives. DM shall have the right to be represented by, and have counsel appear, at its own expense, with respect to any such claim. You may not, without the prior consent of DM, enter into any settlement if such settlement: (i) includes any payment of monetary damages by DM or injunctive relief binding on DM, (ii) includes an admission of liability by DM, or (iii) does not include a release of DM from all further liability with respect to such claim.
LIMITATION ON DAMAGES
IN NO EVENT SHALL DM OR ANY DM PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORMS OR MATERIALS FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR ENHANCED DAMAGES OR LOSSES, OR FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, INVESTMENT OR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, DIMINUTION IN VALUE, INCREASED COST OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF SALES, OR LOSS OF OR INACCESSIBLE DATA OR INFORMATION, BREACH OF DATA OR DATA SECURITY. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF DM (AND THE DM PARTIES) TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE EXCEED THE GREATER OF (A) THE TOTAL FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO DM, IF ANY, DURING THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE INITIAL EVENT WHICH GIVES RISE TO THE LIABILITY; OR (B) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100). THIS PARAGRAPH STATES YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR FINANCIAL HARM.
THE PURPOSE OF EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORMS AND MATERIALS. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND DM. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE(S).
These Terms become effective as soon as you click "I AGREE." DM may at any time: (i) modify or discontinue any part of the Platforms or Materials; (ii) charge, modify or waive fees required to use the Platforms and Materials; or (iii) offer opportunities to some or all users of the Platforms and Materials. DM reserves the right to make changes to these Terms at any time, and such changes will be effective immediately upon being posted at www.docmagic.com. Each time you use the Platforms, you should review the current Terms. You can determine when these Terms were last revised by referring to the "LAST UPDATED" date at the bottom. Your continued use of any of the Platforms or Materials will indicate your acceptance of the current Terms. DM reserves the right, without notice and at its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate your account or your use of the Platforms and to block or prevent future access to and use of the Platforms if you violate any of these Terms, and for any or no reason at all. Upon any such suspension or termination, you must immediately stop using the Platforms and erase the original and all copies, complete or partial, of any of the Materials (including all DM Confidential Information) from your devices, and, if requested, certify in writing to DM that all such items have been erased.
You agree that DM shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Platform. Upon termination, all provisions of these Terms which by their nature are intended to survive termination (including, without limitation, all obligations of confidentiality, ownership, limitations of liability and indemnities) shall survive such termination.
GOVERNING LAW AND ARBITRATION
You and DM agree that in the event of any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of, relating to or connected in any way with your use of any of the Platforms or Materials or the breach, enforcement, interpretation or validity of these Terms (each, a "Claim") will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration, except as otherwise provided in these Terms. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit and uses a neutral arbitrator to resolve the claim rather than a jury. Arbitration is subject to limited review by courts but arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. YOU AND DM ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each of the parties may bring an action in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of a party’s intellectual property.
You and DM agree to use good faith efforts to resolve any claims within thirty (30) days following written notice by either party that a claim has arisen. If the parties cannot resolve the claim within such time period, then the claim shall be determined by a single arbitrator through Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services ("JAMS"), in the County of Los Angeles. Alternatively, if it is determined or these Terms provide that a claim should not proceed through arbitration, each of you and DM agree that the claim will be resolved exclusively in federal court in the County of Los Angeles (the "Venue") and waive any objections as to personal jurisdiction in the Venue. The then-current JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures shall apply. All fees charged by JAMS shall be split equally by you and DM, but each party shall be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees. If the claim is valued at $10,000 or less, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted solely on the basis of the documents submitted to the arbitrator. You hereby acknowledge and agree that DM may effect service of process by email to the address provided by you to DM in connection with setting up your account. Each of the parties waives the right to personal service.
You and DM agree that all claims will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of laws principles and the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA). Any claims must be raised within one (1) year after the event which gives rise to the claim and may only be brought in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. You agree that, to the extent permitted by law: (A) any and all claims will be resolved individually in the Venue designated above, without resort to any form of class action; and (B) any judgments and awards will be limited to actual third-party, out-of-pocket costs incurred, but in no event will attorneys’ fees be awarded or recoverable.
These Terms, including policies and information linked from or incorporated herein, constitute the entire agreement between you and DM with respect to your use of any of the Platforms and Materials and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications, agreements, and proposals with respect to such use. No provision of these Terms may be waived except pursuant to a writing executed by the party against whom the waiver is sought. No failure to exercise, partial exercise of, or delay in exercising any right or remedy under these Terms shall operate as a waiver or estoppel of any right, remedy, or condition. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not bef4 affected or impaired. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without DM’s express prior written consent. DM will not be responsible for failure to fulfill any obligation due to causes beyond our control. Nothing in these Terms is intended to confer on any third party any benefit or any right to enforce these Terms.
If you desire to communicate with or otherwise provide notice to DM for any reason, your communication must be in writing, delivered by email (deemed delivered on the date DM sends a responsive email) to the address for DM posted in the "Settings" of the Platform, with a copy to email@example.com, or regular mail (deemed delivered on the third business day) to: 1800 213th Street, Attn: Legal Department, Torrance, CA 90501. You acknowledge that DM may contact you at the email address provided by you when you create your account, as the same may be modified by you periodically by updating your profile page or by email to DM as provided in this paragraph.
