TopProz provides no warranties, express or implied, regarding the services and licenses offered herein. All warranties, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are explicitly disclaimed. In no event shall TopProz be held liable for any consequential, indirect, punitive, incidental, or special damages, whether foreseeable or unforeseeable, whether or not we or anyone else has been advised of the possibility of such damages. These damages may be based on lost goodwill, lost profits, loss of use of money, loss of data or interruption in its use or availability, stoppage of work, impairment of assets, or any other reason arising from a breach of any express or implied warranty, breach of contract, negligence, misrepresentation, strict liability, or any other cause. This applies regardless of whether the claim is based on any provision of this Agreement, any order form, or any other agreement between the parties related to the services or any transaction conducted under or in connection with this Agreement or any order form.


You agree to indemnify and hold harmless TopProz, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, shareholders, members, employees, and agents (each referred to as a "Covered Party") from any and all liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and investigation or action costs, incurred by or imposed upon a Covered Party in connection with a claim, lawsuit, or other legal proceeding brought by a third party arising from or related to (i) your actions and performance under this Agreement.








This Agreement, including any related Quotes, exhibits, schedules, attachments, and appendices, constitutes the sole and entire agreement between the Parties concerning the subject matter contained herein, and it supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, whether written or oral, regarding such subject matter. The Parties acknowledge and agree that in the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of any Quote, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall prevail and take precedence.



1.    Initial Negotiation: In an effort to minimize potential dispute-related costs and disagreements, if any controversy or dispute arises between TopProz and Company under this agreement or any related agreement, TopProz may, as a first step, engage in informal discussions with Company before pursuing arbitration or litigation. Company will be formally notified of such a dispute through written communication sent to the physical address provided to TopProz.


2.    Arbitration: If the informal initial negotiation process mentioned above proves unsuccessful, TopProz will seek resolution through formal and binding arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and constitutes a transaction involving commerce. The arbitration proceedings will be initiated and conducted before a single arbitrator in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). If applicable, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for User-Related Disputes ("AAA User Rules") will also apply and can be found on the AAA website (www.adr.org). Arbitration fees and arbitrator compensation will be determined in accordance with the AAA Rules (and, if applicable, constrained by the AAA User Rules). Each party will bear the fees of their respective attorneys, subject to any remedies they may be entitled to under applicable law. The arbitrator will issue a written decision. Furthermore, the arbitrator, not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will possess exclusive authority to resolve disputes regarding the interpretation, enforceability, applicability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement. However, this provision does not apply to the "Class Action Waiver" described in Subsection (4) below.


3.    Waiver of Class Action Rights: To the extent permitted by applicable law, both TopProz and Company waive the right to engage in court or arbitration proceedings for any Dispute as a class action, either as a class member or as a representative, or to act as a private attorney general.


4.    Mutually Agreed Upon Rules for Arbitration Proceedings: If either Party initiates arbitration under this Agreement, they agree to be bound by the following rules. The arbitration must be initiated within the same time limitations as provided by the relevant statute of limitations in state or federal law. The selected arbitrator will follow the same guidelines that would have been applied if the dispute had arisen in a state or federal court, considering both timeliness and remedies.


5.    Severability: Both parties acknowledge that if any part of this mutually binding arbitration agreement is deemed unenforceable, the enforceable portion will be severed and applied as intended.



This Agreement and all related documents and all matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether sounding in contract, tort, or statute] are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, United States of America including its statutes of limitations and State of California choice of law statute(s), without giving effect to the conflict of laws provisions thereof to the extent such principles or rules would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of California.
