Some states or jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to You.

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded and does not apply to this Agreement.

The arbitrator shall apply the law of England and Wales to the merits of any dispute or claim. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and unappealable. The arbitration shall be conducted in London, England and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. In the event any action is brought by either party in connection with this Agreement, the substantially prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party all the costs, legal fees and other expenses reasonably incurred by such party. All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the arbitration by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts and legal counsels, and by the arbitrator and any of their employees, are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any litigation or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the arbitration.
(b) Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding the “Governing Law; Arbitration” section above, You agree that certain breaches by You would cause irreparable injury to CFC, for which there are no adequate remedies at law, and nothing in this Section shall be deemed to prevent or delay CFC’s attempt to seek a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, specific performance or other interim or conservatory relief from any court having jurisdiction, without any abridgment of the power of the arbitrator, for Your breach of: (i) Section 9(a) (“CFC’s Ownership Rights”); (ii) Section 11 (“Copyright Infringement”); and (iii) Section 14 (“Confidential Information”).
(c) Assignment. You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of CFC.

Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party’s permitted successors and assigns.
(d) Waiver; Severability. The failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect CFC’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. If any portion of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable, such portion will be modified to reflect the parties’ intention and only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
(e) Export Restrictions/Legal Compliance. You agree to comply with all United Kingdom and other applicable export laws and related restrictions and regulations, and not to directly or indirectly export, provide or otherwise make available the services and products of CFC in violation of any such export laws, unless any required prior authorizations or necessary approvals are obtained by You, at Your expense, from the applicable United Kingdom or foreign authority.
(f) Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between You and CFC regarding this subject matter, and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written and oral, between You and CFC relating to this subject matter. You may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when You use or access certain features of the CFC Membership Program.
(g) Relationship. You and CFC are independent contractors, and this Agreement, including but not limited to submission of any Video Content or Member Comments, will not, in whole or in part, establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency between the You and CFC. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent. Neither party is authorized to act as an agent or representative of the other or for or on behalf of the other party in any capacity other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement. Neither party shall in any manner advertise, represent or hold itself (or any of its agents) out as so acting or being authorized so to act, or incur any liabilities or obligations on behalf of, or in the name of, the other party, unless specifically provided for in this Agreement. Moreover, each party shall be solely responsible for the payment of all of its own taxes, assessments and all other similar withholdings from or assessments on any monies paid hereunder or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.
