Accuracy and Availability of Information
The Site contains a database of commercial profiles for public figures, celebrities and digital influencers compiled by Thuzio. While Thuzio uses commercially reasonable efforts to provide accurate information, Thuzio gives no warranty or representation as to the accuracy of the database and any other content on the Site. Thuzio's "Projected Retail" with respect to Talent is computed using a proprietary formula, and reflects Thuzio's projected quote for a two (2) hour appearance for such Talent. This price has NOT been confirmed by Talent's representation, and may vary due to factors such as, but not limited to, travel, on-site appearance requirements and autograph requests. No "Projected Retail" shall guarantee any pricing or range of pricing, and Thuzio retains the right to change any "Projected Retail" at any time, including the proprietary formula used by Thuzio to calculate it. If you choose to rely on any information contained on the Site, including without limitation any Thuzio "Projected Retail," when making an employment or any other decision, or for any other purpose, you do so entirely at your own risk. Thuzio reserves the right to change, withdraw or delete information or content from the Site at any time.

The duration of your Julius Account (the "Subscription Term") is indicated in the contract at time of subscription. Your Julius Account will continue and renew automatically for the same period of time, unless terminated by you or Thuzio.

You must notify Thuzio immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Julius Account. Although Thuzio will not be liable for any losses or damages caused by any unauthorized use of your Julius Account, you may be liable for the losses of Thuzio or others due to such unauthorized use.
Subscription Fees and Payments
The annual or other periodic fees for your Julius Account (including any applicable taxes) will be billed automatically at the start of the annual or other period, and at the start of each renewal period, to the credit card or other billing method designated by you to Thuzio, unless you terminate your Julius Account before the renewal period begins.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") provides recourse to copyright owners who believe that their rights under the United States Copyright Act have been infringed by acts of third parties over the internet. If you believe that your copyrighted work has been used without your authorization and is available on or in the Services or Site in a way that may constitute copyright infringement, you may provide notice of your claim to Thuzio as described in this section.

- identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;

- your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and an email address;
- a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

Please note that in addition to being forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly illegal Content, Thuzio may send a copy of your notice (with your personal information removed) to Chilling Effects (www.chillingeffects.org) for publication and/or annotation. You can see an example of such a publication at: http://www.chillingeffects.org/fairuse/notice.cgi . A link to your published notice will be displayed on the Site in place of the removed Content. Thuzio reserves the right to remove Content alleged to be infringing or otherwise illegal without prior notice and at its sole discretion. In appropriate circumstances, Thuzio will also terminate a user's account if the user is, or is likely to be, a repeat infringer (as determined by Thuzio in its sole and absolute discretion).

NEITHER THUZIO, NOR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND AFFILIATES, MAKES ANY WARRANTY THAT THE SITE, SERVICES, OR TOTAL CONTENT, WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS. FURTHERMORE, NEITHER THUZIO, NOR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND AFFILIATES, MAKES ANY WARRANTY REGARDING THE QUALITY OF ANY SERVICES OR TOTAL CONTENT, OR THE ACCURACY, TRUTHFULNESS, COMPLETENESS OR RELIABILITY OF ANY TOTAL CONTENT OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES.

NEITHER THUZIO NOR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND AFFILIATES, OR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SITE, SERVICES OR TOTAL CONTENT WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, OR FOR ANY DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL OR BODILY INJURY OR EMOTIONAL DISTRESS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, SERVICES OR TOTAL CONTENT, FROM ANY COMMUNICATIONS, INTERACTIONS OR MEETINGS WITH OTHER USERS OF THE SITE OR SERVICES, OR OTHER PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU COMMUNICATE OR INTERACT AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES, OR FROM YOUR BOOKING OF ANY TALENT VIA THE SITE OR SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT THUZIO HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THUZIO AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold Thuzio and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Site, Services, or Total Content or your violation of these Terms; (b) your violation of any third party right, including, without limitation, any copyright, property or privacy right; (c) your Content (including, without limitation, any claim that your Content caused damage to a third party); and (d) your (i) interaction with any Talent or Subscriber, (ii) booking of any Talent through the Site or Services, or (iii) any event booked by you through the Site or Services, including, but not limited to any injuries, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a booking of any Talent or event through the Site or Services. You agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold Thuzio and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any and all claims and threatened claims by any third party, including any Talent and any Talent's agents, managers, employees or other personal representatives, and any attendees of any event you book through the Site or Services, arising out of, under or in connection with the death or bodily injury of any third party, including any agent, employee, customer, invitee or visitor of Talent but only to the extent caused or contributed to (directly or indirectly) by you, or the damage, loss or destruction of any tangible personal or real property but only to the extent caused or contributed to (directly or indirectly) by you.
The Site may contain links to third-party websites or resources. You acknowledge and agree that Thuzio is not responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such websites or resources; or (ii) the content, products, or services on or available from such websites or resources. Links to such websites or resources do not imply any endorsement by Thuzio of such websites or resources or the content, products, or services available from such websites or resources. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any such websites or resources or the Content, products or services on or available from such websites or resources.
When you visit the Site or send emails to any address on the Thuzio.com domain, you are communicating with Thuzio electronically. You consent to receive communications from Thuzio electronically. Thuzio will communicate with you by email (sent to the email address you provide to Thuzio either during the registration process or when your email address changes) or by posting notices on the Site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that Thuzio provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. In addition to, but not in limitation of the foregoing, except as explicitly stated otherwise, any notices to Thuzio shall be given by email to [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Thuzio may alternatively choose to give you notice by certified mail, postage prepaid and return receipt requested, to the mailing address provided to Thuzio. In the case of notice by certified mail, notice shall be deemed given three (3) days after the date of mailing.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of New York without reference to the principles of conflicts of laws thereof. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your visit to the Site or to products or services sold or distributed by Thuzio or through the Site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would. We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Thuzio without restriction.
