Global Brass and Copper and the other Global Brass and Copper Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability-whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise-for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if Global Brass and Copper or the other Global Brass and Copper Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
The total liability of Global Brass and Copper and the other Global Brass and Copper Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to access or use our Services.
The limitations set forth in this section will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of Global Brass and Copper or the other Global Brass and Copper Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release Global Brass and Copper and the other Global Brass and Copper Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. You expressly waive any rights you may have under California Civil Code § 1542 as well as any other statute or common law principles that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.

12. Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Illinois without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Illinois or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.

The failure of Global Brass and Copper to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.
