  14. Technical Support. You are solely responsible for technical support of Your Apps and Integrations. Bluebeam will only support product functionality and workflows available without the dependence on Apps and Integrations.
  15. Limited Warranty. All functionality introduced by Apps and Integrations are Your sole responsibility. Bluebeam warrants that the Developer Platform will perform substantially in accordance with the documentation. Non-substantial variation of performance from the Documentation does not establish a warranty right. Bluebeam is not liable for any App, Integration, or other Developer Service that results in a loss of End User data, unauthorized access to End User data, or the interruption of End User’s access to Platform Data. The entire liability of Bluebeam and its affiliates is defined in Section 20, Limitation of Liability below.
  16. Trademarks. Please refer to the Bluebeam Developer Network Branding Guidelines for terms relating to use of trademarks and guidelines for naming Apps and Integrations.
  17. Representations and Warranties.

  18. Disclaimer. THE BLUEBEAM SERVICES, DEVELOPER PLATFORM, AND ALL BLUEBEAM SOFTWARE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
  19. Indemnity. You will indemnify, defend, and hold Bluebeam, our affiliates, agents, and licensors harmless from all costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from any End User or third party claim relating to: (a) Your breach of these Terms of Use or any act or omission by You in connection with Your use of the Developer Platform; (b) Your Bluebeam Developer App; or (c) Your collection or use of End User Data. We will be entitled, at our expense, to participate in the defense and settlement of the claim or action with counsel of our own choosing. You may not settle any claims that limit our rights without our prior written consent (which will not be unreasonably withheld).
  20. Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL BLUEBEAM, ITS AFFILIATES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL (INCLUDING LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS) DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, OR (B) LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, REVENUES, OR PROFITS (IN EACH CASE WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT), EVEN IF BLUEBEAM KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF BLUEBEAM, ITS AFFILIATES, AND AGENTS FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO OUR SERVICES WILL NOT BE MORE THAN THE GREATER OF $100 OR ANY AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO BLUEBEAM FOR THE SERVICES IN QUESTION DURING THE TWELVE MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THE DEVELOPER’S REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. Some states do not allow the types of limitations in this paragraph, so they may not apply to You.
  21. Modification. We may revise these Terms of Use and related documentation (Bluebeam Developer Network Branding Guidelines, Studio End User License Agreement, Revu, Revu End User License Agreement) from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website, so please check this site regularly. By continuing to access or use the Developer Platform after revisions become effective, You agree to be bound by the revised Terms of Use. If You do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Developer Platform and cease all use, operation, support, promotion, and distribution of all of Your Bluebeam Developer Apps and Integrations.
  22. Governing Law and Arbitration. These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California, without reference to conflicts of law principles. The application of the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any controversy or claim, whether in law or in equity, arising out of or relating to this contract, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration in Los Angeles County administered by JAMS in accordance with its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and not appealable.
  23. Attorneys’ Fees. If any party employs attorneys to enforce any rights arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, and other expenses. The term “prevailing party” means that party, as plaintiff or defendant, who substantially prevails against the other party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a written offer of compromise made by either party is not accepted by the other party within thirty (30) days after receipt and the party not accepting such offer fails to obtain a more favorable judgment, the non-accepting party shall not be entitled to recover its costs of suit and reasonable attorney’s fees and costs (even if it is the prevailing party) and shall be obligated to pay the costs of suit and reasonable attorney’s fees and costs incurred by the offering party.
  24. Entire Agreement. These Terms of Use, along with the License to the Developer Platform, and the Documentation, constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between You and Bluebeam with respect to the Developer Platform, and supersede and replace any prior or contemporaneous agreements, terms, and conditions applicable to the Developer Platform.
  25. No Waiver. Bluebeam’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible.
  26. Assignment. You may not assign any of Your rights in these Terms of Use, and any such attempt is void, but Bluebeam may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Developer Platform.
  27. Relationship. Bluebeam and You are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors.
