NEITHER The Tea House NOR ITS LICENSORS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AGENTS OR SPONSORS ARE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY LOSS OR INJURY OR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO (i) THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE AND/OR THE SERVICES, OR ANY GOODS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED OR SOLD THEREON; (ii) ANY CONTENT CONTAINED ON THE SITE AND/OR THE SERVICES; (iii) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT POSTED OR MADE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON THE SITE AND/OR THE SERVICES, OR ANY GOODS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED OR SOLD THEREON; (iv) ANY GOOD, PRODUCT OR SERVICE PURCHASED OR OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES; (v) ANY ACTION TAKEN IN RESPONSE TO OR AS A RESULT OF ANY INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES, OR ANY GOODS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED OR SOLD THEREON; (vi) ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY LOSS OF ACCESS TO, DELETION OF, FAILURE TO STORE, FAILURE TO BACK UP, OR ALTERATION OF ANY CONTENT ON THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES, OR ANY GOODS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED OR SOLD THEREON; OR (vii) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE SITE AND/OR THE SERVICES, OR ANY GOODS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OFFERED OR SOLD THEREON.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent that The Tea House may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of The Tea House’s liability will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by The Tea House infringe your copyright, you or your agent may send to The Tea House a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon The Tea House actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to The Tea House a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide The Tea House’s Copyright Agent the following information:
The Tea House's Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached as follows: Designated Agent: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Tea House suggests that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
The Tea House makes no representation or warranty that the goods, products, services, content and materials on the Site or the Services are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States. Those who choose to access the Site or use the Services from other locations do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent applicable. The Tea House reserves the right, at any time in its sole discretion, to limit the availability and accessibility of the Site or the Services or any goods, products or services offered or sold thereon to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction The Tea House so desires, and to limit the quantities of any such service, goods or products that The Tea House may provide.
The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes. These TOS are effective unless and until terminated by either you or The Tea House. You may terminate these TOS at any time by notifying The Tea House that you no longer wish to use The Tea House’s Services, or when you cease using the Site. If in The Tea House’s sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these TOS, The Tea House also may terminate this agreement at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to The Tea House’s Services (or any part thereof). You agree that The Tea House, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account (in whole or in part) or use of the Site or Services, and remove and discard any content within the Site or Services, at any time and for any reason. You agree that any actions taken under this Section may be effective without prior notice to you.
These TOS and the relationship between you and The Tea House shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and The Tea House irrevocably agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located within the county of Los Angeles, in the State of California, and waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.
The failure of The Tea House to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severed herefrom and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The Tea House may perform any of its obligations or exercise any of its rights under this TOS through one or more of its corporate affiliates (including any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with The Tea House). If The Tea House or its assets are acquired by another entity, that entity will assume The Tea House’s rights and obligations as described in this TOS. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this TOS, by operation of law or otherwise, without The Tea House’s prior written consent.
The Tea House may modify these TOS at any time, as it deems appropriate. If you disagree with the changes to the TOS, you must discontinue your use of the Site and Services, and if you have registered as a member, cancel your registration. Your continued access or use of any of the Site or Services following such notice signifies your acceptance of the modified TOS. It is your responsibility to review the TOS regularly to be aware of such modifications. The Tea House reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Site or Services with or without notice. The Tea House will not be liable to you or any third party should The Tea House exercise its right to modify or discontinue the Site or Services. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse will be to cease access to the Site or Services. Continued access to the Site or Services following notice of any such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and acceptance of the Site or Services as so modified and your use of new Services will be governed by these TOS.
These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by The Tea House on this site or in respect to the Services constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and The Tea House and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and The Tea House (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
