PARTLY, PARTLY’S SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES AND PARTLY’S SUPPLIERS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, PERFORMANCE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION (ORAL OR WRITTEN) OBTAINED BY YOU FROM PARTLY WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL PARTLY, OR PARTLY’S SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR PARTLY’S SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, GENERAL, SPECIAL, COMPENSATORY, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE CONDUCT OF YOU OR ANYONE ELSE IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE SERVICES, OR THESE TERMS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS, BODILY INJURY, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, OR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

Partly does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted access to the Services, and operation of the Services may be interfered with by numerous factors outside Partly’s control.
Dispute Resolution and Release
Partly is not responsible for your interactions with other users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between users. Any dispute between you and another user, including Sellers, must be resolved between yourselves. If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. In entering into this release you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) 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.
You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration between you and Partly, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement or misappropriation of a party’s intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Partly are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Partly otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
If any provision of these Terms is held unenforceable, then the provision will be modified to reflect the parties’ intention. All remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You and Partly are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms. Partly reserves the right to modify or terminate the Services for any reason, without notice, at any time. These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of New Zealand. You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms will be governed by the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of New Zealand. Unless otherwise specified herein, all notices will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or e-mail; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service. Electronic notices should be sent to email@example.com. All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
Partly reserves the right to alter these Terms and any other policies at any time, so please review the policies frequently. If Partly makes a material change Partly will notify you here, by email, by means of a notice on our homepage, or other places Partly deems appropriate. What constitutes a “material change” will be determined at Partly’s sole discretion, in good faith, and using common sense and reasonable judgment.
