12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
12.1 UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) WILL EITHER PARTY TO THESE TERMS, OR THEIR AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER LOSS INCURRED BY SUCH PARTY OR THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF OR COULD HAVE FORESEEN SUCH DAMAGES.
12.2 NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS, OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SUBSCRIPTION TO, OR USE OR EMPLOYMENT OF THE SERVICE, SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES FOR SUCH SERVICE PAID BY YOU DURING THE ONE (1) MONTH PRIOR TO THE FIRST EVENT OR OCCURRENCE GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF THIS SECTION IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND LIMIT POTENTIAL LIABILITY GIVEN THE SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER IF WE WERE TO ASSUME ANY FURTHER LIABILITY OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH HEREIN. WE HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO PROVIDE YOU THE RIGHTS TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS.
12.3 Any claims or damages that You may have against LawGro shall only be enforceable against LawGro and not any other entity or its officers, directors, representatives or agents.
13.1 We will indemnify and hold You harmless, from and against any claim against You by reason of Your use of the Service as permitted hereunder, brought by a third party alleging that such Service infringes or misappropriates a third party’s valid patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret (an “IP Claim”). We shall, at Our expense, defend such IP Claim and pay damages finally awarded against You in connection therewith, including the reasonable fees and expenses of the attorneys engaged by LawGro for such defense, provided that (a) You promptly notify LawGro of the threat or notice of such IP Claim; (b) We will have the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defense attorneys, defend and/or settle any such IP Claim; and (c) You fully cooperate with LawGro in connection therewith. If use of the Service by You, Team Members or Clients has become, or in Our opinion is likely to become, the subject of any such IP Claim, We may at its option and expense (a) procure for You the right to continue using the Service as set forth hereunder; (b) replace or modify the Service to make it non-infringing; or (c) if options (a) or (b) are not commercially reasonable or practicable as determined by LawGro, terminate Your subscription to the Service and repay You, on a pro-rated basis, any Subscription Charges previously paid to LawGro for the corresponding unused portion of Your Subscription Term for such Service. We will have no liability or obligation under this Section with respect to any IP Claim if such claim is caused in whole or in part by (i) compliance with designs, data, instructions or specifications provided by You; (ii) modification of the Service by anyone other than LawGro; or (iii) the combination, operation or use of the Service with other hardware or software where the Service would not by itself be infringing.
The provisions of this Section state the sole, exclusive and entire liability of LawGro to You and constitute Your sole remedy with respect to an IP Claim brought by reason of access to or use of the Service by You, Team Members or Clients.
13.2 You will indemnify and hold LawGro harmless against any claim brought by a third party against LawGro arising from or related to use of the Service by You, Team Members or Clients in breach of these Terms or matters which You have expressly agreed to be responsible pursuant to these Terms; provided that We promptly notifies You of the threat or notice of such a claim.
14. ASSIGNMENT; ENTIRE AGREEMENT; AMENDMENT
14.1 You may not, directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, assign all or any part of these Terms or Your rights under these Terms or delegate performance of Your duties under these Terms without Our prior consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. We may, without Your consent, assign Our agreement with You in connection with any merger or change of control of LawGro or the sale of all or substantially all of Our assets provided that any such successor agrees to fulfill its obligations pursuant to these Terms. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, these Terms will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
14.2 These Terms constitute the entire agreement, and supersede any and all prior agreements between You and LawGro with regard to the subject matter hereof. These Terms shall apply in lieu of the terms or conditions in any purchase order or other order documentation You or any Entity which You represent provides (all such terms or conditions being null and void), and, except as expressly stated herein, there are no other agreements, representations, warranties, or commitments which may be relied upon by either party with respect to the subject matter hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, additional terms may apply to certain features, functionality, or services We offer as part of or distinct from the Service, including Associated Services (the “Additional Terms”). In those instances, We will notify You of such Additional Terms prior to the activation of these features, functionality, or services and the activation of these features, functionality, or services in Your Account will be considered acceptance of the Additional Terms. All such Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into these Terms when You or any Team Member authorized as an administrator in Your Account activate the feature, functionality, or service. Where there is a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control.
14.3 We may amend these Terms from time to time, in which case the new Terms will supersede prior versions. We will notify You not less than ten (10) days prior to the effective date of any such amendment and Your continued use of the Service following the effective date of any such amendment may be relied upon by LawGro as Your consent to any such amendment. Our failure to enforce at any time any provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of the Terms.
If any provision in these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as to best accomplish the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in effect.
16. EXPORT COMPLIANCE AND USE RESTRICTIONS
The Service and other Software or components of the Service that We may provide or make available to You, Team Members or Clients may be subject to U.S. export control and economic sanctions laws. You agree to comply with all such laws and regulations as they relate to access to and use of the Service, Software and such other components by You, Team Members and Clients. You shall not access or use the Service if You are located in any jurisdiction in which the provision of the Services, Software or other components is prohibited under U.S. or other applicable laws or regulations (a “Prohibited Jurisdiction”) and You shall not provide access to the Services to any government, entity or individual located in any Prohibited Jurisdiction. You represent, warrant and covenant that (a) You are not named on any U.S. government list of persons or entities prohibited from receiving U.S. exports, or transacting with any U.S. person; (b) You are not a national of, or a company registered in, any Prohibited Jurisdiction; (c) You shall not permit Team Members or Clients to access or use the Service in violation of any U.S. or other applicable export embargoes, prohibitions or restrictions; and (d) You shall comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States and the country in which You, Team Members and Clients are located.

18. GOVERNING LAW
