17. Violation of Terms and Liquidated Damages
Please report any violations of the Terms, by flagging the posting(s) for review, or by emailing to: support@IndusLadies.com.
IndusLadies’s failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if it becomes necessary for IndusLadies to pursue legal action to enforce these Terms, you will be liable to pay IndusLadies the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of IndusLadies’s damages for the specified breaches of these Terms:
a. If you post a message that (1) impersonates any person or entity; (2) falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; or (3) that includes personal or identifying information about another person without that person’s explicit consent, you agree to pay IndusLadies $1,000.00 for each such message. This provision does not apply to content that constitutes lawful non-deceptive parody of public figures.
b. If IndusLadies establishes limits on the frequency with which you may access the Site or Service, or terminates your access to or use of the Site or Service, you agree to pay IndusLadies $100.00 for each message posted in excess of such limits or for each day on which you access IndusLadies in excess of such limits, whichever is higher.
c. If you send unsolicited email advertisements to IndusLadies email addresses or through IndusLadies computer systems, you agree to pay IndusLadies twenty five dollars ($25) for each such email.
d. If you post content in violation of these Terms, other than as described above, you agree to pay IndusLadies $100.00 for each item of content posted. In its sole discretion, IndusLadies may elect to issue a warning before assessing damages.
e. If you aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any content (except for your own content) in violation of these Terms without IndusLadies’s express written permission, you agree to pay IndusLadies $3,000.00 for each day on which you engage in such conduct.
Otherwise, you agree to pay IndusLadies’s actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated. Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms, IndusLadies retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in these Terms, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of any such term or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in these Terms, or any combination thereof.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and IndusLadies and govern your use of the Site and Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and IndusLadies.
No waiver by IndusLadies of any breach or default hereunder is a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
The section headings of the Terms used herein are for convenience only and shall be of no legal force or effect.
If any provision of the Agreement is held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of any other provisions and the remaining portions of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. The failure of either party to exercise any of its rights under the Terms shall not be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of such rights or any other rights provided hereunder.
