The Ripalip site and Content available through the Service may contain features and functionalities that may link you or provide you with access to third party content which is completely independent of Ripalip, including web sites, directories, servers, networks, systems, information and databases, applications, software, programs, products or services, and the Internet as a whole. Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Service, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

14. GENERAL INFORMATION
The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Ripalip and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Ripalip. The Terms and the relationship between you and Ripalip shall be governed by the laws of the State of Minnesota without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Ripalip agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Hennepin, Minnesota. The failure of Ripalip to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
15. VIOLATION OF TERMS AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES
Please report any violations of the Terms, by flagging the posting(s) for
review, or by emailing to: abuse@Ripalip.com
Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if it becomes necessary for Ripalip to pursue legal action to enforce these Terms, you will be liable to pay Ripalip the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of Ripalip’s damages for the specified breaches of these Terms:
If you aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content (except for your own Content) in violation of these Terms without Ripalip’s express written permission, you agree to pay Ripalip three thousand dollars ($3,000) for each day on which you engage in such conduct. Otherwise, you agree to pay Ripalip’s actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated. Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms, Ripalip retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in these Terms, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of any such term or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in these Terms, or any combination thereof.
