DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
YOUR USE OF THE RAZER SITES AND ALL CONTENTS THEREON IS AND SHALL BE AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE RAZER SITES AND ALL CONTENTS THEREON ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, RAZER AND THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE RAZER SITES, ALL CONTENTS THEREON, AND SUPPORT SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND TITLE. RAZER MAKES NO WARRANTY AS TO THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE CONTENTS OF THE RAZER SITES OR OF SITES LINKED TO THE RAZER SITES, AND DOES NOT ENDORSE OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISED BY A THIRD PARTY THROUGH THE RAZER SITES OR ANY HYPERLINKED WEBSITES. RAZER ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, OR OTHER MALWARE THAT MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH THE RAZER SITES, FOR ANY ERRORS, MISTAKES OR INACCURACIES IN CONTENT, OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE INCURRED THAT RESULTS FROM THE USE OF ANY CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE IN ANY WAY THROUGH THE RAZER SITES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THESE LIMITATIONS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT SHALL RAZER, THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING THOSE RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, DATA OR PROFITS, HOWEVER CAUSED AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE RAZER SITES (INCLUDING THE SERVICES AND SUPPORT SERVICES OFFERED ON THE RAZER SITES OR DOWNLOADABLE MATERIALS), EVEN IF RAZER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL RAZER'S LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR A PRODUCT OR SERVICE. The foregoing limitations will apply even if any warranty or remedy provided under this Agreement fails of its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or other limitations set forth above, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
By using a Razer Site, you agree that the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these T&Cs and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Razer from your use of the Razer Sites.
Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Razer Sites shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in San Diego, California, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Razer's intellectual property rights, Razer may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT; SEVERABILITY; WAIVER; ASSIGNMENT
These T&Cs and other legal notices published by Razer on the Razer Sites applicable to an activity you engage in shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Razer concerning the Razer Sites. If any of the provisions of these T&Cs shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions of these T&Cs, which shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver, and Razer's failure to assert any right under these T&Cs shall not constitute a waiver of such right. You agree that any cause of action arising out of or relating to the Razer Sites must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arises, and otherwise is permanently barred. You may not assign or transfer these T&C, but Razer may assign the T&C without restriction.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Razer, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from and against any loss, cost, damages, liability and expense arising out of or relating to your use of the Razer Sites and/or any action by you which violates any law, regulation or rights of a third party.

If you access such websites via the links, you do so at your own risk.
Without prior notice, Razer may terminate your license to access the Razer Sites and/or your user account if you violate or breach the T&C or for any other reason, including Razer's discontinuance of the Razer Sites. In the event of termination, provisions on prohibited conduct, electronic communications, user accounts, downloads, user feedback and unsolicited ideas, disclaimer of warranty, limitation of liability, and miscellaneous provisions shall survive.
