Carus understands social media is a 24/7 form of communication. However, Carus does not monitor its Platforms on a 24/7 basis, and as a result, may not see every comment that violates this Policy right away. Comments posted to our Platforms are the opinion of the original author, not Carus. The publication of a comment does not imply endorsement or agreement by Carus. In no way do the comments posted to our Platforms reflect the opinions or positions of Carus or its employees.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Carus, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, successors, and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to your violation of this Policy.
All matters relating to this Policy, and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Illinois without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, this Policy shall be instituted exclusively in the courts of the State of Illinois, in each case located in the County of LaSalle, IL. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts. No waiver by Carus of any term or condition set out in this Policy shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Carus to assert a right or provision under this Policy shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Policy is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Policy will continue in full force and effect.
