Limitation. Our aggregate liability for all claims arising from these terms shall not exceed $10,000.00.
Exclusions. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you but shall instead apply to the maximum extent permitted by law.

In consideration for the Services, you release, on your own behalf and on behalf of each of your past, present and future beneficiaries, heirs, successors and assigns, to the fullest extent permitted by law, ElmSure and its past, present and future affiliates, its directors, managers, members, officers, members, employees, representatives, consultants, agents, successors, assigns, affiliates, suppliers and/or distributors from responsibility, liability, claims, demands and/or damages (whether actual, absolute, contingent, liquidated or unliquidated, punitive or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) disputes between or among users; (ii) third party sites, products and services, including without limitation insurance policies; and (iii) claims relating to the unauthorized access to any data communications or content stored under or relating to your account, including unauthorized use or alteration of such communications or your content.
You hereby waive applicability of California Civil Code §1542, and any similar statute or principle of common law. California Civil Code §1542 provides: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party..”

Although our Services may be accessible in other geographic locations, the features, products or services discussed, referenced, provided or offered as part of the Services are only available to users in the United States. We reserve the right to limit, in our sole discretion, the provision and quantity of any feature, product or service to any person or geographic location. Any offer for any feature, product or service made available through our Services is void where prohibited by law.
14. Modifying and Terminating Service; Changes to Terms
We may terminate your access to our Services, in our sole discretion, for any reason and at any time, upon electronic notice to you at your registered email address in accordance with applicable law; provided, however, that termination of access to our Services will not necessarily cancel an insurance policy you have procured through us unless otherwise stipulated in our notice to you in conformance with applicable law. You agree that we are not liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to our Services. We may change and update our Services from time to time. We may add or remove features, including without limitation, making free services into paid services and vice versa. You may terminate these Terms at any time by ceasing to use our Services. Termination of these Terms will have no effect on any insurance policies you purchase in connection with our Services.
Accrued obligations and all provisions of these Terms that by their nature should survive will survive any termination of these Terms.
These Terms may be modified, changed or revised at any time to reflect changes in the law or in ElmSure’s business operations. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Terms. Sometimes there may be material changes to these Terms that we want to apply retroactively. If so, we will notify you and obtain your consent to the extent required by applicable law.

In such case, notice shall be deemed given three (3) days after the date of mailing.
17. Governing Law; Dispute Resolution
These Terms, and any dispute between you and us, shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to principles of conflicts of law that would result in the application of the law of any other jurisdiction, except that the Federal Arbitration Act shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration provisions set forth below. Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that this Section 17 is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate (as defined below) or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in New York, New York, except that you or we are permitted (i) to bring small claims actions in state court in the county in which you reside if such court has a small claims procedure; (ii) to bring claims for injunctive relief in any court having jurisdiction over the parties; or (iii) to seek enforcement of a judgment in any court having jurisdiction over the parties. To the extent permitted by law, you and we agree to waive trial by jury in any court proceeding.
18. Agreement to Arbitrate; Waiver of Class Action
You may opt out of this Agreement to Arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor we can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify us in writing within thirty (30) days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. The opt out notice must state that you do not agree to the Agreement to Arbitrate and must include your name, address, phone number, your ElmSure account to which the opt out applies and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this Agreement to Arbitrate. You must sign the opt out notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate.
You must use this address to opt out:
ElmSure LLC, ATTN: Arbitration Opt-out, 645 Madison Avenue, 19th Floor, New York, NY 10022.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any change to the Arbitration Procedures (other than a change to any notice address or Site link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against us prior to the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate the Arbitration Procedures from these Terms, such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after the version of these Terms not containing the Arbitration Procedures is posted to our Site, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against us prior to the effective date of removal.
In accordance with Section 14 above, this Agreement to Arbitrate will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, to any third party without our written consent. These Terms shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties to these Terms and their respective successors, permitted transferees and permitted assigns. We and you are independent contractors and are not partners, joint venturers, agents, employees or representatives of the other party. These Terms contain the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the transactions and matters contemplated herein (other than any terms contained in any insurance policy procured for you by us) and, other than with respect to any insurance policy procured for you by us, supersede all previous communications, understandings and agreements (whether oral or written) other than any click-through or end user license agreement provided by us, and cannot be amended except by a writing signed by both parties or by our posting of an amended version of these Terms on our Site. The headings and captions used in these Terms are used for convenience only and are not to be considered in construing or interpreting these Terms. If any part of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. The failure of ElmSure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
