FMG Suite takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Submissions posted, stored or uploaded by you or any third party, or for any loss or damage thereto, nor is FMG Suite liable for any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography or profanity you may encounter. FMG Suite is not liable for any statements, representations or Submission provided by its Users in any public forum, personal home page or other Interactive Area.

FMG SUITE HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH REGARD TO THIS INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, AND SERVICES, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NONINFRINGEMENT.
You agree to defend and indemnify FMG Suite and each of its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, licensors, suppliers, partners, investors, employees, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Provider”) from and against any claims, causes of action, demands, recoveries, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other costs or expenses of any kind or nature, including but not limited to reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising from:
You and each of your successors, assigns, subsidiaries and affiliates, hereby unconditionally release and forever discharge FMG Suite and each of its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, partners, investors, employees, successors and assigns harmless from any and all complaints, claims, charges, damages, demands, suits, actions and causes of action, whether at law or in equity (including attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses), known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with your use of the Sites. In the event you fail to promptly indemnify and defend such claims or pay the expenses of the Provider, as provided above, the Provider has the right to defend itself, and in that case, you shall reimburse the Provider for all of its reasonable attorney’s fees, costs and damages incurred in settling or defending such claims within thirty (30) days of each of the Provider’s written request.
You agree that FMG Suite, in its sole discretion, may terminate or suspend your use or access to the Sites, Interactive Areas, Submissions, Materials, Content, information, and services at any time and for any or no reason, in its sole discretion, and without prior notification, even if access and use continues to be allowed to others. Upon such suspension or termination, you must immediately (a) discontinue use of the Sites, and (b) destroy any copies you have made of any portion of Submissions. Accessing the Sites, Interactive Areas, Submissions, Materials, Content, information, and services after such termination, suspension or discontinuation shall constitute an act of trespass. Further, you agree that FMG Suite shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination or suspension of your access to the Sites, Interactive Areas, Materials, Content, information, and services.
The Sites may contain links to sites, pages, accounts or other electronic media owned or controlled by parties other than FMG Suite. Such links are provided for your reference and convenience only. We do not control such sites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy or other practices of such sites. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from the Sites or other sites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. Our inclusion of links to such sites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such sites or any association with their operators. In some cases you may be asked by a third party site to link your profile on FMG Suite to a profile on another third party site. Choosing to do so is purely optional, and the decision to allow this information to be linked can be disabled (with the third party site) at any time.
Copyright and Trademark Notices
All trademarks, trade names, logos, images, typefaces, graphics, service marks and trade dress displayed on the Sites (collectively, the “Marks”) are the property of FMG Suite or its licensors, content providers or other third parties. Nothing in these Terms or on the Sites shall be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any Mark without the prior written consent of FMG Suite or the owner of the Mark. In addition, the look and feel of the Sites, including all page headers, custom graphics, button icons and scripts, is the service mark, trademark and/or trade dress of FMG Suite and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of FMG Suite. All other trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned in the Sites are the property of their respective owners. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise, does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by FMG Suite.
If you are aware of an infringement of either your brand or our brand, please let FMG Suite know by contacting us via phone or email. See “How to Contact FMG Suite,” below.
You agree to use the Sites in strict compliance with all applicable laws, rules, rulings and regulations and in a fashion that does not, in the sole judgment of FMG Suite, negatively reflect on the goodwill or reputation of FMG Suite and shall take no actions that would cause FMG Suite to be in violation of any laws, rules, rulings or regulations applicable to FMG Suite. FMG Suite and the Sites are based in the United States. The Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without reference to the principles of conflicts of law of that state or any other jurisdiction. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts of San Diego County, in the State of California, or the courts of the United States located in San Diego County, California, and stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceedings in such courts for all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Sites. You agree that all claims you may have against FMG Suite arising from or relating to the Sites must be heard and resolved in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in the State of California within one (1) year from the date on which such claim or action arose or accrued or such claim or cause of action will be irrevocably waived. Use of the Sites is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the Agreement, including, without limitation, this paragraph. If any part of the Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remaining provisions in the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
FMG Suite’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice acts to modify any of these Terms. FMG Suite may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you. FMG Suite makes no representation that materials on the Sites are appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to them from territories where their content is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Sites from locations outside California do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. You may not use or export the materials in violation of United States export laws and regulations. Any claim relating to the materials is governed by the laws of the State of California.
FMG Suite and its affiliates are not liable for damages as a result of any delay or other failure of performance due to causes beyond its reasonable control including, without limitation, acts of God, acts of customer or any of its representatives, acts of military or civil authorities, fire or other casualty, strikes, lockouts, weather, epidemic, war, riot, terrorism, telecommunications interruptions or computer viruses.
