Beni does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, products, and content of these and any other websites. Any concerns regarding any such services or resources should be directed to the service or resource.
If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void, or unenforceable for any reason, then such provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Beni’s failure to enforce the strict performance of any provision of these Terms or the additional terms and conditions for any product or service will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provisions of these Terms or the additional terms and conditions.
Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, Beni, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, and agents, will not be liable to you for any lost profits, revenues, financial losses, or any indirect, special, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the total liability of Beni, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, and agents, for any claim, cost, damage, or loss arising out of or relating to the Services, including for any warranties that may not be excluded, shall not exceed the lesser of the amount you paid to Beni during the twelve months prior to the event giving rise to the liability or $10.00 (ten dollars) (the “Liability Cap”). Beni and you agree that the Liability Cap shall include all forms of damages.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for certain types of damages. In such jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS-AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

BENI UNDERTAKES NO OBLIGATION TO UPDATE THE SERVICES. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM BENI, OR THROUGH THE SERVICES SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING THE SERVICES NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS. YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMERS, LIMITATIONS, AND NOTICES REGARDING THE SERVICES AND ITS CONTENT AND DATA MAY BE PROVIDED BY BENI FROM TIME TO TIME WITHIN THE SERVICES.
WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE SERVICES AND ITS SERVERS ARE FREE OF COMPUTER VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL CONTENT. IF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, THE MATERIAL, OR THE SOFTWARE RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR SERVICING OR REPLACING EQUIPMENT OR DATA, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE COSTS.
NOTHING IN THE SERVICES SHALL BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL, FINANCIAL, MEDICAL, OR OTHER ADVICE, AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING ALL DECISIONS TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS, REGULATIONS, CODES, OR STANDARDS.
You will defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless from and against any actual or threatened suit, actions, proceedings (at law or in equity), claims, damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, penalties, interest, and disbursements) arising from or related to your conduct with respect to the Services or violation (or alleged violation) of these Terms. Under no circumstance will Beni be liable for damages of any kind that result from your use of, or the inability to use, the Services.
We may terminate or suspend your access to the Services, delete your account and any content or information or prohibit you from using or accessing the Services (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Services) if you violate these Terms, effective immediately, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with you and your activities in connection with the Services. We may also terminate your account without cause for convenience upon written notice. If you wish to terminate your account, you may do so by following the instructions on the Services. Any fees paid hereunder are non-refundable. In the event of termination, you will still be bound by your obligations under these Terms.
You are responsible for reviewing these Terms regularly. Beni reserves the right, at any time, without notice to you, and in its sole discretion, to modify or discontinue the Services, these Terms, or any Beni policies related to use of the Services. Revisions to these Terms or Beni’s policies may be provided through the Services, including by posting the revisions on the Services and updating the “Last Updated” date. Such revisions will go into immediate effect once posted to the Services. Continued use of the Services following such modifications to the Services, these Terms, additional terms and conditions for any service, or other Beni policies will constitute your acceptance of such modifications and revisions.
YOU AND BENI AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Any dispute between you and Beni arising from or relating to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, “Covered Disputes”), will be settled by binding arbitration.
Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60 days advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Beni will provide such notice by either email to your e-mail address on file with Beni or by mail to your mailing address on file with Beni and you must provide such notice to Beni by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration. The arbitrator will conduct any arbitration proceedings by telephone or videoconference unless in-person appearances are requested by you or Beni and approved by the arbitrator. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location mutually agreed upon by you and Beni, or, in the absence of such agreement, at a location determined by the arbitrator. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review.
Beni and you agree that any Covered Dispute hereunder will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither Beni nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private attorney action and the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found illegal or unenforceable, the remaining arbitration terms shall continue to be fully valid, binding, and enforceable (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration). These Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 and, where otherwise applicable, by the laws of the State of Delaware.
Unless you and Beni agree otherwise, in the event that it is determined or these Terms provide that a claim should not proceed through arbitration, you agree that any claim or dispute (with the exception of a claim or dispute appropriately lodged in any small claims court in the United States of America) shall be resolved in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, and you submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. If subject matter jurisdiction (including diversity jurisdiction) does not exist in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware for any such claim, then the exclusive forum and venue for any such action shall be the courts of the Delaware, and you submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.
Beni’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice shall act to modify any of these Terms.
Beni may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force.
