K. Services Are Provided “AS IS”
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SAI AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
L. Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL SAI OR ANY OF ITS LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ITS SUBJECT MATTER UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, FOR ANY:
i. LOSS OF PRODUCTION, USE, BUSINESS, REVENUE, OR PROFIT OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE;

OTHER THAN FOR THE TYPES OF LIABILITY WE CANNOT LIMIT BY LAW (AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION), WE LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU TO THE GREATER OF $50 USD OR 100% OF ANY AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID UNDER YOUR CURRENT SERVICE PLAN WITH SAI.
M. Resolving Disputes; Venue and Choice of Law
Before filing a claim against SAI, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 (fifteen) days of submission, you or SAI may bring a formal proceeding.
Judicial Forum for Disputes. You and SAI agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to this Agreement or the Services will be brought in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and SAI consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.
This Agreement will be governed by California law except for its conflicts of laws principles. However, some countries (including those in the European Union) have laws that require agreements to be governed by the local laws of the user's country. This paragraph does not override those laws.
N. MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS
You and SAI agree to resolve any claims relating to this Agreement or the Services through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below. This includes disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.
The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, San Francisco (CA), or any other location we agree to.
The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. SAI will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Either you or SAI may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in San Francisco (CA) or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in San Francisco County, California to resolve your claim.
2. No Class Actions.
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section will be deemed void.
O. Entire Agreement
This Agreement constitute the entire agreement between you and SAI with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, and supersedes any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement creates no third party beneficiary rights.
P. Waiver, Severability & Assignment
SAI’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Agreement 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 this Agreement, and any such attempt will be void. SAI may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise this Agreement from time to time to better reflect:
i. improvements or enhancements made to our Services,
ii. changes to the law, or
iii. new regulatory requirements.
If an update affects your use of the Services or your legal rights as a user of our Services, we will notify you prior to the effective date of the update by sending an email to the address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. These updated terms will be effective no less than 30 (thirty) days from when we notify you.
If you do not agree to the updates we make, please cancel your account before those updates become effective. Where applicable, we will offer you a prorated refund based on the amounts you have prepaid for Services and your account cancellation date. By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Agreement.
