13. LIMITATION OF WARRANTIES

GENESIS PROVIDES THE WEBSITE AND THE CONTENT, INFORMATION, PRODUCTS, AND SERVICES ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE,” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESSED, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY. GENESIS AND HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. Some states may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so check local laws. GENESIS DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE CONTENT OR SERVICES AT THE SITE OR FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE MATERIALS AT THE SITE WILL BE AVAILABLE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, THAT THE SITE OR THE SERVER THAT MAKES IT AVAILABLE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, THAT ALL PRODUCTS LISTED, SOLD, OR ADVERTISED ARE AVAILABLE, OR THAT ALL TRANSACTIONS WILL BE COMPLETED. NEITHER GENESIS, HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA, NOR ANY OF ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, LICENSORS, OR LICENSEES WARRANT OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS THAT THE CONTENT, MATERIALS, OR INFORMATION CONTAINED AT THE SITE ARE CORRECT, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, UP TO DATE, AND/OR RELIABLE.


14. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

IN NO EVENT SHALL GENESIS OR HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA’S AFFILIATES, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, LICENSORS OR LICENSEES, OR ANYONE WHO HELPED DEVELOP, CREATE, PRODUCE, DISPLAY, TRANSMIT, OR DELIVER THE CONTENT, MATERIAL, AND INFORMATION USED IN THE SITE BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, TREBLE, ENHANCED, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, USE OF THE SITE, LINKS TO OR FROM THE SITE, INFORMATION POSTED ON THE SITE, OUR SERVICES, ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES YOU PURCHASE, OR THESE TERMS OF USE, EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTIES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU, IF ANY, FOR ACCESSING THE SITE. NEITHER GENESIS, HYUNDAI MOTOR AMEIRCA, NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, LICENSORS OR LICENSEES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES YOU MIGHT SUSTAIN BY ENGAGING IN TRANSACTIONS WITH BUYERS OR SELLERS WHO YOU MEET AS A RESULT OF ANY CLASSIFIED ADVERTISEMENTS THAT MAY BE POSTED ON ANY GENESIS WEBSITE. Some states do not allow the limitation of liability, so check local laws.


15. CLASSIFIED ADVERTISEMENTS

Some of our websites may provide a forum (such as classified advertisements) in which sellers and buyers may be connected. By engaging in transactions with buyers or sellers that you meet via one of our websites, you proceed solely at your own risk and you agree that Genesis is not responsible for any losses that you might sustain as a result of your transactions with such buyers and sellers. You should not engage in any transaction with a person with whom you are not comfortable or whom you suspect might be engaged in improper or questionable conduct. Please be aware that Genesis, through certain of its websites, merely provides a forum in which buyers and sellers can connect. Neither Hyundai nor its websites posting classified advertisements facilitate any transaction, insure any transaction, or act as an intermediary, broker, or escrow agent in connection with such buyer-seller transactions. You should be very careful before you send money to any seller posting an advertisement on one of our sites. In particular, we urge you to use reputable and well-known money-transfer services and online merchant account services (such as PayPal) when engaging in transactions with sellers of goods advertised on one of our websites. We urge you to proceed with extreme caution in using such money transfer services, and under no circumstances should you deliver cash to a money transfer service with instructions to disburse the funds to an alleged agent of Genesis or the website on which the classified advertisement was posted. Again, neither Genesis nor its websites posting classified advertisements act as a transaction intermediary or escrow agent, and you should not do business with any seller who directs you to work with an employee or agent of Genesis or the applicable website in completing the transaction.


16. INDEMNITY AND HOLD HARMLESS
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY, QUALITY, SAFETY, LEGALITY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COMPLIANCE, PRIVACY POLICY, OR CONTENT OF ANY INFORMATION, PRODUCT, OR SERVICE OFFERED BY USERS, VENDORS, ADVERTISERS, PROMOTIONAL OR BUSINESS PARTNERS, OR ANY THIRD PARTY SITES, AND YOU IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY CLAIM AGAINST GENESIS, HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA, AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, LICENSORS, AND LICENSEES WITH RESPECT TO THE SAME. GENESIS DOES NOT GUARANTEE SUCH ACCURACY, AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE OR RESULTS OF USE OF ANY CONTENT ON THE SITE IN TERMS OF ITS ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER MATTER. YOU ASSUME THE RISK OF THEIR USE AND THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY LOSS, SERVICING, REPAIR, OR CORRECTION AS A RESULT OF THEIR USE. You agree to hold Genesis and its officers, directors, employees, representatives, agents, licensors, and licensees harmless from any and all claims, demands, attorneys’ fees, damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known and unknown, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of, or any way connected with the use of the site, any transaction occurring through the site, the safety or quality of any goods or services purchased or sold through the site, or the truth or accuracy of any claim made about such goods or services. California residents expressly agree to waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her, must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” Residents of California are entitled to the following specific consumer rights information: you may contact the Consumer Information Center at (800) 952-5210 or dca@dca.ca.gov of the California Department of Consumer Affairs for consumer inquiries, or you may write to the Department of Consumer Affairs at the following address: Department of Consumer Affairs, Consumer Information Division, 1625 North Market Boulevard, Suite N 112, Sacramento, CA 95834. You also agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Genesis, Hyundai Motor America, and its officers, directors, employees, representatives, agents, licensors, and licensees harmless from any loss, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the website, your breach of these Terms of Use or the documents that it incorporates by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of any third party in connection with your use of the site.

 

17. TERMINATION OF SERVICES

We may eliminate or terminate any Content or service posted on or made available through any of our websites without notice to you at any time in our sole discretion. Without limiting any other remedy, Genesis reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately issue a warning or to immediately, temporarily, or permanently suspend or terminate your participation in the site or any area of the site, and to refuse to provide our services to you if: (a) you breach these TOU or any of the rules or eligibility requirements of the site or the services offered at the site; (b) we are unable to verify or authenticate any billing information you provide to us; or (c) we believe that your actions may cause damage, harm, or legal liability to you or to any vendor, business, or promotional partner, advertiser, other user, the public, or us.
