12. Royalty Accountings:
Soundblock shall compute the Royalties payable to Owner and may send Owner, by email, an accounting statement covering those Royalties.

In the event of a Claim or a breach or threatened breach by Owner of any of the Terms, Soundblock shall have the right, without waiving or limiting any other right available to Soundblock (including Soundblock’s termination rights under paragraph 19 of this Exhibit), to suspend any or all of Soundblock’s obligations under this Agreement, to take down any or all of Owner’s Content from the Site, and/or to suspend or terminate the sale of the Products. The decision of whether or not to reinstate any or all of the foregoing shall be determined by Soundblock in its sole discretion.
The rights, powers and remedies of Soundblock in this Agreement, including the right to suspend, restrict or terminate any or all of the Services and/or the Term, are cumulative and in addition to and not in substitution for any right, power or remedy that may be available to Soundblock at law or in equity, and Soundblock may decline to exercise any of such rights or remedies as Soundblock may deem fit without jeopardizing any future exercise of the rights and remedies available to Soundblock.

Owner’s use of the Service, or any portion thereof, is void where prohibited.
Soundblock disclaims any responsibility for the deletion, failure to store, misdelivery, or untimely delivery of any Products, information or materials.

Soundblock will not have any liability to Owner as a result of Service outages that are caused by Soundblock’s maintenance on the servers and other technology that underlie the Service, failures of Soundblock’s service providers (including telecommunications, hosting, and power providers), computer viruses, natural disasters, or other destruction to or damage of Soundblock’s facilities, an act of God, war, civil disturbance, terrorism, or other cause beyond Soundblock’s reasonable control.

However, some states and/or countries do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to Owner. In such states, Soundblock’s liability and that of Soundblock’s third-party content providers and their respective agents shall be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
The Service has certain limitations that may change from time to time (e.g., permissible file sizes, limit on use of Upload and download bandwidth, and file types that may be uploaded).
Soundblock will not be liable for any claims, demands or damages of any kind or nature arising out of any dispute between Owner and any other user or visitor to the Site (including a Site Customer). Soundblock reserves the right, but will not be obligated, to monitor any such dispute.
Soundblock reserves the right to terminate the Service at any time without notice.
Owner Pages created and posted by Service Members may contain links to other websites. Soundblock is not responsible for the content, accuracy or opinions expressed on such websites, and such websites are in no way investigated, monitored or checked for accuracy or completeness by Soundblock. Inclusion of any linked website on the Service does not imply approval or endorsement by Soundblock of the linked website. When Owner accesses such third-party sites, Owner does so at Owner’s own risk.
In no event shall Owner hold Soundblock liable for any losses resulting from any fraud perpetrated on Owner, Soundblock or anyone else relating to or stemming from transactions contemplated by this Agreement or from any other claims based on the actions or inactions of other users of or visitors to the Service.

IN NO EVENT SHALL Soundblock BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF THE SUM OF ALL ROYALTY PAYMENTS Soundblock HAS MADE TO OWNER UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE THE CLAIM AROSE.
Owner agrees that, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action against Soundblock arising out of or related to use of the Site or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arises, or be forever barred.
Any dispute or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in the State of Arizona, subject to the laws of that state, other than its conflicts of law principles. A single arbitrator engaged in the practice of law, who is knowledgeable about intellectual property transactions, shall conduct the arbitration. The arbitrator shall be selected in accordance with AAA procedures from a list of qualified people maintained by AAA. The arbitration shall be conducted in Phoenix, Arizona. There shall be no discovery other than the exchange of information which is provided to the arbitrator by the parties. Written reasons for the arbitrator’s decisions shall be complete and explicit, but limited to only those issues necessary to support the award. Each party shall bear its costs and attorney’s fees of any arbitration. The arbitrator shall assess his or her costs, fees and expenses against the party losing the case, unless the arbitrator believes that neither party is the clear loser, in which case the arbitrator shall divide such fees, costs and expenses equally. The arbitrator’s decision and award shall be final and binding, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any duty to arbitrate under this Agreement shall remain in effect and enforceable after expiration or termination of the Term for any reason. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the foregoing provisions shall not be applicable in connection with any legal action taken by Soundblock that includes an attempt by Soundblock to obtain injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent or remedy any breach or threatened breach by Owner of this Agreement. Any process in such action may, among other methods, be served upon Owner by mailing it to Owner at the address supplied by Owner within a profile or Owner’s address as designated in this Agreement. Such mailing will be deemed to have the same force and effect as personal service upon Owner.
18. Infringement Policy:
It is the policy of Soundblock to respect the legitimate rights of copyright and other intellectual property owners and it is the policy to terminate the accounts of any person who repeatedly violates the intellectual property rights of others. Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Section 512 (the “DMCA”), Soundblock has designated an agent (specified below) to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement on its Site: www.Soundblock.com/DMCA.
19. Termination of the Term and/or Service:
Owner may terminate the Term and withdraw from the Service by utilizing the ‘Un-Publish’ button on the Owner’s Content Page on the Site. This button will remove the Featured Masters from all services after the button is utilized.
Soundblock reserves the right, in Soundblock’s sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate Owner’s access to any or all of the Service at any time for any reason without prior notice or liability. Soundblock may change, suspend, or discontinue any or all aspects of the Service at any time, including the availability of any Service feature or content, without prior notice or liability. Soundblock will notify Owner of any such change, suspension, or discontinuation. Any termination of the Term shall not relieve Owner of any obligations to pay Charges. Soundblock shall not be obligated to notify any third party of the termination of Owner’s account or provide any termination assistance. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Soundblock shall have no obligation to forward any email messages, data, information or other content related to Owner’s use of the Services, and Owner acknowledges that all such email messages, data, information and content may be deleted by Soundblock.
If Soundblock has reasonable grounds to suspect that any of the information provided by Owner to Soundblock is inaccurate, false, misleading or incomplete, Soundblock has the right, in its sole discretion to terminate the Owner’s Page and use of the Service and close Owner’s account.
If Soundblock terminates the Term for any reason, Owner shall not be entitled to the refund of any unused portion of the Charges.
The end of the Term does not discharge Owner or Soundblock from their respective obligations to pay any amounts owing under this Agreement. As long as any amount so owing to Soundblock by Owner has not been paid in full, in addition to Soundblock’s other rights and remedies, Soundblock will have the right to reimburse itself from any amounts otherwise payable to Owner under this Agreement.
In order to be effective, all notices to: (i) Soundblock under this Agreement must be in writing and sent to Soundblock’s address listed on the Site or to such other address as Soundblock may designate in a notice on the Site; and (ii) Owner under this Agreement may be posted on the Site in accordance with Section 24 below or sent to Owner’s address listed at initial sign-up. All notices sent under this Agreement to Soundblock must be sent only (a) by registered or certified mail (return receipt requested), or (b) by overnight air courier if such courier actually provides proof of receipt. The day Soundblock actually receives such notice will be deemed the date of the giving thereof. Soundblock may be required by state or federal law to notify Owner of certain events or information. Owner hereby acknowledges and consents that such notices will be effective upon Soundblock posting them on the Site or delivering them to Owner through e-mail. If Owner fails to provide Soundblock with accurate and up to date information, Soundblock cannot be held liable for failure to notify Owner of any such events or information.
21. Force Majeure:
If because of an act of God, accident, fire, lockout, strike or other labor dispute, riot or civil commotion, act of public enemy, enactment, rule, order or act of any government or governmental instrumentality (whether federal, state, local or foreign), failure of technical facilities, failure or delay of transportation facilities, shortage of raw materials, or other cause of a similar or different nature not reasonably within Soundblock’s control, as applicable (a “Force Majeure Event”), Soundblock is materially hampered in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement or its normal business operations are delayed or become impossible or commercially impracticable, Soundblock shall have the option to suspend its obligations to Owner under this Agreement for the duration of any such Force Majeure Event.

If, in any action, suit, arbitration or other proceeding, a controversy or dispute arises which is based on or related to this Agreement or any Term, the party prevailing therein shall be entitled to recover as an element of its costs of suit, separate and apart from damages, all reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred therein, whether or not such action, suit, or proceeding proceeds to final judgment. No such sum for attorneys’ fees shall reduce the amount of a judgment, and the amount of a judgment shall not be considered in determining whether such fees are reasonable.
Owner shall NOT contact any of the Site Customers directly regarding the Products distributed by Soundblock.
The relationship between Soundblock and Owner under this Agreement shall at all times be that of independent contractors, and nothing contained herein shall render or constitute Soundblock and Owner joint venturers, partners, or agents of each other. This Agreement is made for the sole benefit and protection of the parties hereto and not for the benefit of any third party. No person or entity not a party to this Agreement shall have any rights hereunder, except to the extent expressly granted by Soundblock.
No failure by Soundblock to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement shall be deemed a breach of this Agreement, unless Owner has given Soundblock notice of such breach in reasonable detail, and such breach has not been cured within 30 days after the giving of such notice; provided that if such breach cannot reasonably be cured within such period due to reasons beyond Soundblock’s reasonable control, Soundblock shall not be in breach of this Agreement if it cures such breach within a reasonable period of time. In the event of a breach of this Agreement by Soundblock, Owner’s remedies shall be limited to monetary damages not to exceed any amounts paid by Owner to Soundblock for services and, accordingly, Owner shall not be entitled to terminate or rescind this Agreement or any of the rights granted to the Soundblock hereunder.
Owner’s use of the Service is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in this Agreement shall limit Soundblock’s right to comply with governmental, court, and law-enforcement requests or requirements relating to Owner’s use of the Service or information provided to or gathered by Soundblock with respect to such use.
Owner acknowledges that the sale of the Products is speculative and agrees that Soundblock’s business judgment with regard to any matter affecting the sale, distribution and exploitation of the Products shall be binding and conclusive upon Owner. Accordingly, Owner shall not make any claim against Soundblock asserting that more Products could have been sold.
Soundblock shall have the right to assign this Agreement to any person or entity. This Agreement shall not be assignable by Owner, in whole or in part, and any such purported assignment shall be deemed null and void ab initio and without force or effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of, and shall be enforceable by, each of the parties hereto and their successors, heirs, assigns and designees.
This Agreement shall be deemed to have been entered into in the State of Arizona and the validity, interpretation and legal effect of this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Arizona applicable to contracts entered into and performed entirely within the State of Arizona.
The parties hereto intend this Agreement as a final expression of their understanding and agreement with respect to the subject matter hereof and as a complete and exclusive statement of the terms thereof; this Agreement supersedes all prior and contemporaneous negotiations, understandings, and agreements between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof.
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to require the commission of any act contrary to law, and wherever there is a conflict between any provisions of this Agreement and any statute, law, ordinance, order or regulation contrary to which the parties hereto have no legal right to contract, such statute, law, ordinance, order or regulation shall prevail; provided that, in such event, (i) the provision of this Agreement so affected shall be limited only to the extent necessary to permit compliance with the minimum legal requirements, (ii) no other provisions of this Agreement shall be affected thereby, and (iii) all such other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to replace any invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision (the “Invalid Provision”) with a valid provision, the effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the Invalid Provision.
No waiver by Soundblock, whether expressed or implied, of any provision of this Agreement or default hereunder shall affect Soundblock’s right to thereafter enforce such provision or to exercise the right or remedy set forth in this Agreement in the event of any other default, whether or not similar.
Words in the singular number shall include the plural, and vice versa. Whenever examples are used in this Agreement with the words “including,” “for example,” “e.g.,” “such as,” “etc. “ or any derivation thereof, such examples are intended to be illustrative and not in limitation thereof.
The paragraph headings herein are used solely for convenience and shall not be used in the interpretation or construction of this Agreement.
For the avoidance of doubt, Terms that by their meaning are intended to survive the Term, including the disclaimers of warranty and limitations and exclusions of liability and payment obligations contained under this Agreement, shall survive the Term.
Soundblock reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify any of the Terms (including the Charges), at any time, effective upon the date Soundblock posts new Terms on the Site. Owner’s continued use of the Service thereafter constitutes Owner’s binding acceptance of such new Terms. If any future modification of the Terms is not acceptable to Owner, Owner agrees to email Soundblock to have Soundblock delete the Owner’s Page and remove all of Owner’s Content from the Site within thirty (30) days of such notice.
