THESE ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ARE INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE INTO THE REVIEW WAVE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND ARE LEGALLY BINDING. By using the Review Wave E-Signature Service, you accept and agree to the terms of these terms and conditions (the "Terms"). Should any conflict arise between these Terms and the Review Wave Terms of Service (the "Standard Terms"), these Terms shall control with respect to the subject matter herein. Both you and Review Wave may be referred to herein individually as a "Party", and collectively as the "Parties".
- THE E-SIGNATURE SERVICE.
- Service Description.

The Service is a "Review Wave Service" for the purposes of interpreting the Standard Terms.
- Authorized Users. The Services are available only to individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. The Services are not available to persons under the age of majority in their jurisdiction, and in no case to persons under the age of 18. In order to use the Services, you must be identified by a unique email address. Two or more natural persons may not use the Services using the same set of credentials.
- Appropriate Conduct. You agree not to use the Services for any illegal or unauthorized purpose and agree to comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances, and regulations relating thereto. You further warrant and agree that your use of the Services does not violate any relevant laws, regulations, legislation, or other applicable rules of any applicable authority. You are solely responsible for determining the suitability of the Services for your particular purpose.
You agree not to (attempt to) modify, adapt, or hack the Services. You agree not to engage in any activities that would create a false association with the Services. You agree that Review Wave has sole and absolute discretion with respect to the determination of whether your use of the Services is authorized.
- Authorized Use. You shall use the Service solely for your internal business or personal purposes, and in no case shall you make the Services or any portion thereof available to any third-party.
- WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
- Warranty Disclaimer. The Services are provided to you without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied. REVIEW WAVE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDES AND DISCLAIMS WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, NON-INRFINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.
USE OF THE SERVICES IS DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK. REVIEW WAVE ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF YOUR DATA OR CONTENT OR ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT, OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRECT AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF THE SERVICE.
- Damages Limitation. REVIEW WAVE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, 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, OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT REVIEW WAVE HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
- Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL REVIEW WAVE'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES EXCEED THE AMOUNT RECEIVED BY REVIEW WAVE FROM YOU IN THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN REVIEW WAVE 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.
- German Customers. Review Wave's liability to you if you are domiciled in Germany is limited as follows:
- Review Wave shall be fully liable for intentional and gross negligence, as well as for any damages arising from injury to life, body or health caused by Review Wave. In the case of liability for slight negligence, Review Wave shall be liable only for breach of a material obligation ("Cardinal Duty") and any such liability shall be limited to typical, foreseeable damages and shall not include liability for lack of economic results, loss of profit, or indirect damages. A Cardinal Duty in the meaning of this Section 2.4 is an obligation, the fulfillment of which is essential to the performance of these Terms and on the fulfillment of which the contracting party may therefore rely.
- If you are a consumer, nothing in these Terms affects your rights under mandatory German law and these Terms will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in compliance with mandatory consumer protection laws of Germany. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or within the Standard Terms, if you are a consumer, you may submit a claim to enforce your rights under these Terms to the competent courts in Germany.
