Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability

THE MYSTIC LANTERN SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, AUDIO TRANSMISSIONS OR OTHER DATA OF ANY KIND OR NATURE MADE AVAILABLE AT THE SITE (COLLECTIVELY, "Information") ARE PROVIDED "AS IS", AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED ARE DISCLAIMED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Privacy and Communications

Any communication, information or other material User transmits or posts to the Site, by electronic mail or otherwise (other than personally identifiable information about User), including any answers to questions, comments, suggestions, or other data supplied by User is, and will be treated as confidential unless presented in a public forum.

In the case of statements made in group settings, User hereby grants to Mystic Lantern a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual fully paid-up license to use any such communication, information or material for any purpose, including, but not limited to, reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, distribution, advertising, marketing, promotion, research, broadcast, display, modification, syndication, licensing and posting. Mystic Lantern's use of personally identifiable information, as well as use of cookies and other tracking methods, is governed by the terms of the Privacy Policy, as adopted and/or amended from time to time. By accepting these Terms of Use by registering for the Mystic Lantern Services, User expressly consents to Mystic Lantern's use of User's information, as set out in Mystic Lantern's then-current Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference. Because Mystic Lantern's Privacy Policy may change from time to time, User should also review it regularly for updates.

Representations and Warranties

User represents and warrants that:

User has full right and power to enter into and perform these Terms of Use, and have secured all third party consents necessary to enter into these Terms of Use;

  • All factual assertions that User has made and will make to Mystic Lantern are true and complete;
  • User (if a natural person) is of the age of majority, has the right to enter into legally binding agreements, and has the full and complete right to agree to these Terms of Use;
  • Mystic Lantern's use of User's marks, and any updates and modifications of them, shall not violate or infringe any intellectual property rights or any publicity or privacy right;
  • Mystic Lantern's reference or link or handling the User's Material or any part of it from Mystic Lantern or any other part of the service shall not breach any content standards requirements or codes promulgated by any relevant authority including all authorities to whom User and Mystic Lantern may be subject and also including the Internet Industry

Indemnification

User shall indemnify hold harmless and defend Mystic Lantern and the officers, directors, employees, partners, principals, agents and representatives of Mystic Lantern from, against and in respect of any and all demands, claims, actions, causes of action, liabilities, losses and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees arising out of or relating to any breach by User of any covenant, representation or warranty made by User in this Agreement, including without limitation, any claims that User's programming violates the intellectual property rights of any third parties.

Limitation of Liability

Mystic Lantern's total liability to User under this Agreement (for any and all actual or threatened claims under any theory) is strictly limited to the amount of payments and fees actually issued to Mystic Lantern by User under this Agreement for the term in which the subject of the claim or demand applies.

Termination

Mystic Lantern, in its sole discretion, shall determine User's compliance with the foregoing Agreement. Mystic Lantern reserves the right terminate this Agreement with or without reason or prior notice (except as otherwise specifically provided for herein) and to take whatever action it deems necessary to limit potential liability upon itself and to cooperate with any pending legal investigation. Without limiting the foregoing, Mystic Lantern may terminate User's use of the Services or access to the Site immediately and without notice if: (a) User breaches these Terms of Use; (b) User infringes the intellectual property rights of a third party in connection with the Services; (c) Mystic Lantern is unable to verify or authenticate any information User provides to it, or (d) any material uploaded or transmitted by User to the Site violates any applicable laws or rights of any third party.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

The Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the applicable laws of the USA, including U.S. intellectual property laws, and the laws of the State of Iowa, without regard to conflict of laws principles. User and Mystic Lantern agree that any and all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms of Use shall be resolved solely through binding arbitration pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph and the then-current rules of the American Arbitration Association (to the extent not inconsistent with this paragraph). Any arbitration arising out of or related to these Terms of Use shall be held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, before one independent arbitrator agreed upon by both parties. Any arbitration will be final and binding, and the arbitrator's order will be entered and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will be chosen within thirty (30) days of the submission of any issue to arbitration, the discovery (if any) will be completed within sixty (60) days thereafter, the hearing will occur within thirty (30) days thereafter and the arbitrator must render his or her decision, in writing, within thirty (30) days after the end of such hearing. To the extent litigation is appropriate or necessary in addition to the binding arbitration procedure outlined above, the User and Mystic Lantern consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts of the State of Iowa for any and all such proceedings.

Changes to the Services

Mystic Lantern reserves the right to change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Mystic Lantern Services or the Site at any time. Mystic Lantern will attempt to provide reasonable notice of such changes to the Services. Mystic Lantern may also impose limits on features or restrict access to parts of its site. Mystic Lantern may amend these Terms of Use at any time by posting amended Terms of Use on its web page. The amended Terms of Use shall be effective immediately upon posting. Mystic Lantern therefore encourages User to review these Terms of Use frequently.

No Equitable Relief

In no event shall User be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief based on any act or omission of Mystic Lantern, or any breach of this Agreement by Mystic Lantern.

Entire Agreement

This Agreement constitutes the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. There are no understandings, agreements, conditions or representations, oral or written, express or implied, with reference to the subject matter hereof, that are not merged herein, expressly referenced herein, or superseded hereby.

Severability

The provisions of this Agreement are independent of each other and the invalidity of any provision or a portion thereof shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any particular provision is found to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be deemed to have been replaced with a valid and enforceable provision that approximates as closely as possible the intent of the parties as reflected in the original provision. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Agreement to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the Parties, and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

No Waiver

Any delay or failure on the part of Mystic Lantern to enforce any of its rights hereunder shall not be construed as a waiver of Mystic Lantern's right to strictly enforce this Agreement at any subsequent time.

Survival and Assignment

The provisions containing the User's representations, warranties and payment and/or indemnification obligations shall survive any termination of this Agreement. User may not assign this Agreement without Mystic Lantern's prior written approval.
