The Services provide certificates of proof of ownership, proof of existence and proof of integrity functionalities regarding a data set, file or any data (the “Data Set”). You may use the Services following the relevant instructions in the Site. You may use the Services directly through the Site, through integrations with other services or as otherwise stated in the Site from time to time.

Once you create the certificate for a Data Set, and depending on the functionalities used by you, you may download a file certification with the technical information about the same, which you can use or share at your interest.

After you create the certificate for a Data Set, it is your sole and exclusive responsibility how you use the Data Set. You may reproduce, distribute, use, display and otherwise transmit the Data Set in any electronic media.

In order to effectively prove the contents of the Data Set, it is essential that an unaltered copy of the original exists. Your failure to produce such copy will impede Stampery’s ability to corroborate the contents and integrity of the Data Set. It is your entire responsibility to keep a secure and unaltered copy of the Data Set. Stampery will not be held responsible for not being able to corroborate the Data Set, should you fail to produce an unaltered copy of the Data Set.

It is completely your choice as to how and with whom you share your Data Set. However, anyone with whom you have shared a Data Set is able to verify that you certified that Data Set through the Service.

The legal effects of your certification shall depend on applicable laws and regulations that you rely on.

10. Limitations of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL STAMPERY, SUPPLIER OR LICENSOR BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS, GOODWILL, ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, OR USE; LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA, CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, OR OTHER INFORMATION; BUSINESS INTERRUPTION; PERSONAL INJURY; PROPERTY DAMAGE; LOSS OF PRIVACY; FAILURE TO MEET ANY DUTY OF GOOD FAITH OR REASONABLE CARE; NEGLIGENCE; AND ANY OTHER PECUNIARY OR OTHER LOSS WHATSOEVER, ARISING OUT OF, BASED ON, RESULTING FROM, OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THESE TERMS, THE SITE, SERVICES, OR CONTENT, EVEN IF STAMPERY OR ANY SUPPLIER, OR LICENSOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND TO THE EXTENT THEY ARE NOT EXCLUDED OR DISCLAIMED ABOVE, STAMPERY AND ITS SUPPLIERS’ AND LICENSORS’ MAXIMUM, AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU, AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THESE TERMS FOR ANY AND ALL DAMAGES, INJURIES, AND LOSSES ARISING FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF, BASED ON, RESULTING FROM, OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THESE TERMS, THE SITE, SERVICES, AND CONTENT, OR THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT WILL BE TO RECOVER THE ACTUAL DAMAGES YOU INCUR BASED UPON REASONABLE RELIANCE ON THE SERVICES UP TO THE GREATER OF U.S. $5.00 OR THE AMOUNTS YOU PAID TO STAMPERY FOR THE SERVICES IN THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE CLAIM. THE EXISTENCE OF MULTIPLE CLAIMS OR SUITS UNDER OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, THE SITE, SERVICES, OR CONTENT WILL NOT ENLARGE OR EXTEND THE LIMITATION OF MONEY DAMAGES WHICH WILL BE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.

The exclusion of damages above is independent of your exclusive remedy above and it survives even if the exclusive remedy fails of its essential purpose or otherwise is deemed unenforceable. Each of the limitations of liability above apply without regard to whether loss, liability, or damage arises from (a) breach of contract, (b) breach of warranty, (c) fault or tort, including negligence and misrepresentation, (d) strict liability, or (e) any other cause of action, to the extent the exclusions and limitations are not prohibited by applicable law.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of damages (including incidental or consequential), loss, or liability from intentional acts (including fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, and failure to disclose defects), product liability, or for death or personal injury. Nothing in the above sections will be interpreted as excluding liability which cannot under applicable law be excluded in those jurisdictions. If you reside, or are otherwise subject to the laws in one of those jurisdictions, any statutory entitlement available to you will be deemed limited to the extent (if at all) permissible under that law and, if limitation is not permitted, the limitations and exclusions in this section may not apply to you.

11. Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Stampery, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, parents and subsidiaries from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Site, Services, or Content; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms; (iii) your violation of any applicable law or third party right, including, without limitation, any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that you caused damage to a third party through use of the Site or the Services. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms and your use of the Site and the Service. Stampery reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will assist and cooperate with Stampery in asserting any available defenses.

12. Changes In the Site or the Services

We may change, suspend or discontinue the Services (including, without limitation, the availability of any feature or content), modify the content of the Site or deactivate and delete all or some of the accounts, at any time and without incurring in any responsibility towards User, with or without prior notice to you. We may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Site or the Services without notice or liability.  

13. Agreement To Arbitrate; Class Action Waiver; And Location Of Dispute Resolution.

You and Stampery each agree that all claims, controversies, and disputes between you and Stampery, including those arising out of or related to the Site and Services, your account, or these Terms (each a “Dispute” and collectively the “Disputes”), will be resolved by binding arbitration by a single neutral arbitrator, provided, however, you and Stampery are not precluded from asserting in small claims court any Dispute that is eligible to be brought in small claims court. BY AGREEING, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND Stampery ARE EACH AGREEING TO FOREGO THE ABILITY TO PURSUE DISPUTES IN COURT, OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO HAVE A JURY DECIDE DISPUTES. Unless you and Stampery otherwise agree, JAMS will arbitrate all disputes and JAMS rules will apply. You and Stampery each agree to only pursue Disputes on an individual basis and will not pursue Disputes, whether in arbitration or otherwise, on a class, consolidated, or representative basis, regardless of the application of procedural rules. BY AGREEING, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND STAMPERY ARE EACH AGREEING TO FOREGO THE ABILITY TO PROCEED IN CLASS ACTIONS, CONSOLIDATED ACTIONS, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, EITHER AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF OR MEMBER OF A CLASS. Notwithstanding any JAMS rule to the contrary, or any other provision in arbitration rules chosen by agreement to govern the arbitration, you and Stampery each agree that any challenges to the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver in this Section will be decided by a federal court or a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by an arbitrator. If any court or arbitrator holds that the class action waiver in this Section is unenforceable, then the Dispute must be brought in a state or federal court, and not in arbitration. You and Stampery each agree that the location of the arbitration or court where the Dispute will be resolved will be the largest city in your state within 100 miles of where you live if you are an individual or, if you are a company User, where you are headquartered. You and Stampery each also agree that for arbitrated Disputes, the arbitrator’s award will be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. An arbitrator may award, on an individual basis, any relief authorized by law, including injunctive or declaratory relief and reasonable attorneys' fees. You and Stampery each are responsible for your or its respective costs relating to the arbitration, except that Stampery will pay all arbitration administrative or filing fees, including the arbitrator fees (other than arbitrator fees up to the amount of the then-applicable fee for filing a civil action in federal court in the judicial district where you live in any Dispute where you assert a claim against Stampery, unless You demonstrate to the arbitrator that You would be entitled to file that civil action in federal court without payment of the then-applicable fee). To begin arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Dispute to Stampery Inc., 548 Market St #42638, San Francisco, California, 94104-5401. You may opt-out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section by mailing Stampery written notice of your election to opt-out at Stampery Inc., 548 Market St #42638, San Francisco, California, 94104-5401 within 45 days of using the Site or Services, expressly indicating that you are opting out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section and including your name and address, provided that the election will not be effective until it is received by Stampery. Your election to opt-out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section will not otherwise affect your rights and obligations under these Terms. You and Stampery each also agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce, so the Federal Arbitration Act, not state law, applies including with respect to any question of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration (despite the choice of governing law stated below in the Section titled “General”).

15. General

These Terms shall be governed by the laws of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. These Terms shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Stampery with respect to the Services and the use of the Site and supersede and replace any prior agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Stampery’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Stampery in any respect whatsoever. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you. Stampery may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights and obligations under these Terms without restriction.
