If directly applicable law prohibits enforcement of the foregoing, you may engage in Reverse Engineering solely for purposes of obtaining such information as is necessary to achieve interoperability of independently created software with the Sites or Services, or as otherwise and to the limited extent permitted by directly applicable law, but only if: (a) Reverse Engineering is STRICTLY necessary to obtain such information; and (b) you have first requested such information from us and we are unable to satisfy the request and make such information available (for a fee or otherwise) under reasonable terms and conditions.

Services “AS IS”

We strive to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can’t guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE, ALONG WITH ANY AFFILIATES, VENDORS, SUPPLIERS AND/OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS, WHERE IS, WITH ALL FAULTS”. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

Limitation of Liability

WE DO NOT EXCLUDE OR LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU WHERE IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL TO DO SO— In no event will Blueprint be liable to you for indirect, general, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary or other damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, corruption of files, loss of business information or any other pecuniary loss). No oral or written information or advice given by Blueprint or others will create a warranty and neither you nor any third-party may rely on any such information or advice. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusions and limitations may or may not apply to you. THIS PARAGRAPH DOESN’T AFFECT CONSUMER RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED OR LIMITED BY ANY CONTRACT OR AGREEMENT.

 

THESE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT WE OR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THESE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY WHETHER RELATED TO OR ARISING FROM THE SITES, SERVICES, CONTENT, USES THEREOF, OR OF ANY SITE OR RESOURCE LINKED TO, REFERENCED, OR ACCESSED THROUGH THE SITES.

IF YOU USE THE SERVICES FOR ANY COMMERCIAL, BUSINESS, OR RESALE PURPOSE, WE, OUR AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND/OR DISTRIBUTORS WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU AND THIS EXCLUSION AND WAIVER OF LAIIBLITY INCLUDES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFIT, LOSS OF BUSINESS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. WE AND OUR AFFILIATES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTIES.

Resolving Disputes

YOU AND WE 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 us, our agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively for purposes of this section, 'Blueprint') arising from or relating to these Terms of Use and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms of Use, 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. Blueprint will provide such notice by email to your e-mail address on file with Blueprint and you must provide such notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, to Blueprint HCRE, Attn: Legal Department, 191 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 1680, Chicago, Illinois 60606.

 

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 Blueprint and approved by the arbitrator. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location mutually agreed upon by you and Blueprint, 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(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms of Use and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. Blueprint and you agree that any Covered Dispute hereunder will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither Blueprint 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 of Use and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA) and, where otherwise applicable, by the laws of the State of Illinois.

 

You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor Blueprint can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify Blueprint in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt out:

 

Blueprint HCRE, Attn: Legal Department, 191 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 1680, Chicago, Illinois 60606.

 

You must include your name and residence address, or business address if using the site on behalf of a business entity, any username, email address, and any other information you used to set up an account or request information via the Services, if any, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.

 

Entire Agreement

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights.

Waiver, Severability & Assignment

Any failure on our part to enforce a provision is not a waiver of our right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. We may assign our rights to any of our affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.

 

Modifications

We may revise these Terms from time to time, at any time, to better reflect:

(a) changes to the law,

(b) new regulatory requirements, or

(c) improvements or enhancements made to our Sites or Services.

By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
