SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES, AND THEREFORE SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT NEITHER LOLLY STORIES, NOR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, ATTORNEYS AND SUPPLIERS, NOR EACH OF THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS, WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU AND/OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, LOST REVENUE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF PRIVACY, LOSS OF GOODWILL OR ANY OTHER LOSSES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IN THE EVENT OF FAULT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR STRICT OR PRODUCT LIABILITY.

a. Severance. If any part of the Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the invalid or unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remainder will remain in full force and effect, provided that the allocation of risks described herein is given effect to the fullest extent possible.
c. Disputes; Choice of Law; Export Limitations. The App is controlled by us from our offices within Canada, and some aspects and portion of the App are hosted at third-party servers within Canada and the United States of America. If you choose to access this App from locations outside Canada, you do so at your own risk and you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. You may not use or export anything from the App in violation of Canadian or U.S. import and/or export laws and regulations or the Terms. By visiting the App, you agree that these Terms and all performances and claims of every nature (including without limitation, contract, tort and strict liability) relating in any way to any aspect of the App will be resolved by arbitration. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your visit to the App or to products or services sold or distributed by Lolly Stories or through the App will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that we and you may assert claims in small claims court if the claims qualify.
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.
d. Limitations on Actions. Any action concerning any dispute you may have with respect to the App must be commenced within one year after the cause of the dispute arises, or the cause of action is barred.

g. No Waiver. The failure of Lolly Stories to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms, including any failure to act with respect to a breach, will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision or Lolly Stories right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We suggest that you print out a copy of these Terms for your records.
