TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SERVICES OR FEATURES PROVIDED TO YOU AT NO COST. WE DISCLAIM ANY OBLIGATIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, OR WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, THAT ARE NOT EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THE AGREEMENT INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we do not warrant, and you expressly disclaim any reliance on any statements or representations, including estimates, not contained in the Agreement.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUES, CUSTOMERS, OPPORTUNITIES, GOODWILL, USE, OR DATA), EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. FURTHER, WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COMPENSATION, REIMBURSEMENT, OR DAMAGES ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH: (I) YOUR INABILITY TO USE THE SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES, INCLUDING AS A RESULT OF ANY (A) TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OR ACCESS TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES, (B) OUR DISCONTINUATION OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES OR ANY FEATUER, OR (C) ANY UNANTICIPATED OR UNSCHEDULED DOWNTIME OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES OR ANY FEATURE FOR ANY REASON; (II) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; (III) ANY INVESTMENTS, EXPENDITURES, OR COMMITMENTS BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES OR ANY FEATURE; OR (IV) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, OR THE DELETION, DESTRUCTION, DAMAGE, LOSS, OR FAILURE TO STORE ANY OF YOUR CONTENT OR OTHER DATA. OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID UNDER YOUR ACCOUNT FOR THE SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES DURING THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO ANY CLAIM.
The limitations in this Section shall apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose under this Agreement. To the max extent permitted by applicable law, we are not liable to you for any deviation from or change in our policies, practices, and procedures.
You understand and agree that we have set our prices and entered into this Agreement with you in reliance upon the limitations of liability set forth in these Terms and Conditions, which allocates risk between us and form the basis of a bargain between the parties.
Except as set forth below, you and we agree that we will resolve any disputes between us (including any disputes between you and a third-party agent of ours) through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings. You and we hereby waive any right to a jury trial of any Claim (defined below). All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and us or you and a third-party agent of ours (each a "Claim") shall be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA Rules"). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall occur in Dallas County, Texas unless we mutually agree to another location. Thryv shall be deemed to have been provided in Texas. The arbitration hearing shall be held within six (6) months after the filing of the arbitration demand with the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and we agree that the arbitration proceedings will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration, by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies, or as specifically permitted by state law. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. However, the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement including, but not limited to, a claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable.
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator's fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude either party from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and we also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and we retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with this Agreement, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in this Agreement.
Neither you nor we may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or our individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. The arbitrator may award in the arbitration the same damages or other relief available under applicable law, including injunctive and declaratory relief, as if the action were brought in court on an individual basis. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing or herein, the arbitrator may not issue a "public injunction" and any such "public injunction" may be awarded only by a federal or state court. If either party seeks a "public injunction," all other claims and prayers for relief must be adjudicated in arbitration first and any prayer or claim for a "public injunction" in federal or state court stayed until the arbitration is completed, after which the federal or state court can adjudicate the party’s claim or prayer for "public injunctive relief." In doing so, the federal or state court is bound under principles of claim or issue preclusion by the decision of the arbitrator.
If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section of the Terms and Conditions will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of these Terms and Conditions. This Section of the Terms and Conditions will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

You grant us, our third-party service providers and their third-party providers, as applicable, a perpetual, royalty-free, sub-licensable, non-exclusive, fully-paid, worldwide, irrevocable right and license to store, use, copy, record, modify, display, publish, publicly perform, distribute (in any form or media), transmit by any means, and create derivative works from the Client Content in relation to the Social Media Services.

We may refuse to accept or transmit Client Content for any reason. We may remove Client Content from the Social Media Services for any reason.
If we create or supply any content for your use with the Social Media Services, the content we create is our sole and exclusive property ("Our Content"), except for included Client Content and any content we license from a third party. You understand that we may supply such Our Content or similar content to our other clients. You agree that you have no right to use Our Content apart from the Social Media Services without our written permission. You agree that we own the copyright in, and all copyrighted portions of the Social Media Services. You agree not to use or alter any trademark, trade name, trade dress or any name, picture or logo that is commonly identified with us or our affiliates unless permission is granted by us in writing.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold us and our agents, representatives, employees, and affiliates harmless from any liability or costs, including attorneys’ fees and expenses, resulting from: (a) any breach of a Client Representation; (b) your or your Authorized Users failure to comply with all Laws; (c) any act, omission or fault of you, your Authorized Users, or your employees, agents or contractors in connection with your use of the Social Media Services; and (d) any claim that the Client Content or other information provided by you or your Authorized Users violates any applicable Law or infringes on any third party patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property or proprietary right. You will continue to be obligated by this Section even after the termination of the Agreement. If we assume the defense of such a matter, you will reasonably cooperate with us in such defense.
You agree that the Agreement will be governed by Texas law. Exclusive venue and jurisdiction for all claims and disputes that are not subject to arbitration pursuant to Section 18 will be in the state and federal courts located in Tarrant County, Texas.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us and supersedes all prior agreements and representations, whether express or implied, written or oral, with respect to the Social Media Services. You agree not to include any limiting endorsement on a check or other form of payment, and we may cash a check containing a limiting endorsement or accompanied by any limiting instruction without affecting your obligations or our rights. Neither you nor any of our employees or agents are authorized to change or add to the Agreement or any other documents that are part of the Agreement in any way, and any purported change or addition, whether oral or written, is void. No additional statement, promise or guarantee by any purported representative of ours outside the terms of this Agreement, except as made in a duly signed, written amendment, shall create any binding obligation on us.
The Agreement is binding on you and your successors. We may assign the Agreement, but you may not do so without our prior written consent.
Except as otherwise set forth in the Agreement, neither you nor we will lose any of our rights under the Agreement, even if you or we do not enforce a right or delay in enforcing a right. Neither party will be liable for any damages arising from acts of God or events outside of that party’s reasonable control. If any provision of the Agreement is found to be unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
You agree that your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, given electronically, will have the same legal effect as if the Terms and Conditions had been personally signed in writing by you. Our imaged copy of these Terms and Conditions will be deemed a duplicate original for evidentiary purposes.
