Limitation of Liability

THE FOUNDATION AND ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER BASED ON ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, LIABILITY, OR INJURY ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF OUR SITE OR SITE CONTENT OR FROM YOUR BREACH OF THESE TERMS.  UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE FOUNDATION OR ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR SIMILAR DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST REVENUES OR PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, OR LOSS OF DATA) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF OUR SITE OR SITE CONTENT OR THESE TERMS, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY.  OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, OUR SITE IS $US25.  SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR THESE KINDS OF DAMAGES, SO THESE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

You agree to indemnify and hold the Foundation and its directors, officers, employees, and agents harmless against all liabilities, losses, damages, and costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees) that any of the indemnified parties may incur arising out of or related to your use of our Site or Site Content or your violation of these Terms.  The Foundation reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which we are entitled to indemnification.  You agree to provide us with all cooperation we reasonably request.

We reserve the right to terminate these Terms, our Site, and Site Content at any time without notice for any reason.  The "Disclaimers," "Limitation of Liability," "Indemnification," and "General" sections of these Terms (along with any other provision that by its terms contemplates survival) will survive any termination.

General

These Terms, which include the Privacy Statement, are the complete agreement between you and the Foundation regarding your use of our Site and supersede all other agreements (oral or written) between you and the Foundation regarding its subject matter except that the Youth Playwriting Fellowship is governed by separate official rules and by participating in the Youth Playwriting Fellowship, you must agree to those rules, which prevail over any conflict with these Terms.  These Terms are governed by and should be construed according to the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and performed in New York, unless doing so would lead to the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.  If you choose to access our Site from jurisdictions other than the United States, you do so at your own risk, and you are responsible for complying with any applicable local laws.  You irrevocably agree: (A) to bring any claim or dispute relating to your use of our Site and these Terms exclusively in the state and federal courts located in the State and County of New York; (B) to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts; and (C) to waive any objection to those courts based on inconvenience or other reasons.  You may not assign your rights under these Terms without the Foundation’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment will be null and void.  If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of these Terms is unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be deleted (or, if possible, modified in a manner that will reflect the original intent as closely as possible) and the remaining provisions will be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.  Our failure to assert any right under these Terms will not be considered a waiver of that right unless the waiver is in writing.  The word “including” in these Terms is intended to be illustrative and means “including without limitation.”

For any questions you may have about these Terms, please contact us by email at: info@lortel.com or by mail at: 322 Eighth Avenue, 21st floor, New York, NY 10001, Attn: Web Services.
