THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN DFWS AND YOU.
BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF NEW JERSEY, THIS SECTION DOES NOT APPLY TO PREVENT A RIGHT TO RECOVER CERTAIN DAMAGES (INCLUDING PUNITIVE DAMAGES) WHERE A HARMED PERSON PROVES WITH THE REQUIRED EVIDENCE THAT THE HARM SUFFERED WAS THE RESULT OF THE DEFENDANT’S “ACTS OR OMISSIONS AND SUCH ACTS OR OMISSIONS WERE ACTUATED BY ACTUAL MALICE OR ACCOMPANIED BY A WANTON AND WILLFUL DISREGARD OF PERSONS WHO FORESEEABLY MIGHT BE HARMED BY THOSE ACTS OR OMISSIONS.” SIMILARLY, THIS SECTION DOES NOT LIMIT DFWS’S TORT LIABILITY UNDER NEW JERSEY LAW RESULTING FROM DFWS’S OWN INTENTIONAL OR RECKLESS CONDUCT.
To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless DFWS, its subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by you and/or any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms and Conditions or the documents they incorporate by reference or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party. In the event of such a claim, suit, or action (“Claim”), we will attempt to provide reasonable notice of the Claim to the contact information we have for your account (provided that failure to deliver such notice shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligations hereunder). You and your company (if applicable) shall have the option to undertake and conduct the defense of any such Claim. You and your company (if applicable) shall keep DFWS fully apprised of all developments in such action and shall not enter into any settlement or admit liability or fault without DFWS’s full prior written approval; and at the request and sole expense of you and your company (if applicable), DFWS agrees to reasonably assist and cooperate with you and your company in any such action.
This provision does not require you to indemnify DFWS for any unconscionable commercial practice by DFWS or for DFWS ‘s negligence, fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your account, these Terms and Conditions or your access to the Services, including the purchase of any items on the Services.
Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph, if you are a resident of New Jersey, you only agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold DFWS and its subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from and against any third-party claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with your violation of these Terms and Conditions.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which provides: A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, and that if known by him or her would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.
If you are not a California resident, you waive your rights under any statute or common law principle similar to Section 1542 that governs your rights in the jurisdiction of your residence.
These Terms and Conditions are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate by deactivating your account or ceasing to use our Services. We are also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms and Conditions.

Even after your right to use the Services is terminated, these Terms and Conditions will remain enforceable against you and unpaid amounts you owe to DFWS for purchases will remain due.
Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms and Conditions shall survive termination.
