    5. Links

    The Website may contain links to other web sites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement, investigation or verification by RYU of the linked web site or information contained therein. Your use of such sites and your dealings with the owners or operators thereof are at your own risk.

    6. Errors and Inaccuracies; Corrections

    The Website may contain typographical errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Products on the Website may not be exactly as shown in photos, images or swatches. We therefore reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior or any notice to you.

    All Material is provided “as is”, “where is”, “as available”, without representations or warranties of any kind. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, RYU AND ALL DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS OF RYU DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE WEBSITE, ITS CONTENTS AND ALL SERVICES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, OR ARISING BY COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE. Without limiting the foregoing, we do not represent or warrant that the Material is accurate, complete, reliable, useful, timely or current or that the Website will operate without interruption or error. We assume no responsibility, and are not liable for, any damages to your computer equipment, data or other property on account of your access to, use of, or browsing on the Website or you downloading of any Material, or inability to do any of the foregoing.

    7. Limitation of Liability

    Your use of this Website is undertaken at your own risk. Under no circumstances will RYU or any directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and suppliers of RYU, be liable for any direct, incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages arising out of your access to or use of this Website, your reliance on any Material, or any consequences flowing therefrom. RYU is not responsible for late, lost, incomplete, illegible, misdirected or stolen messages or mail, unavailable network connections, failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions, on-line failures, hardware, software or other technical malfunctions or disturbances or any other communications failures or circumstances affecting, disrupting or corrupting communications. THIS IS A COMPREHENSIVE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY THAT APPLIES TO ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (WHETHER GENERAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF DATA, INCOME OR PROFITS OR FAILURE TO REALIZE ANTICIPATED BENEFITS), WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT (INCLUDING FUNDAMENTAL BREACH), TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

    If you are dissatisfied with the Website, any Material or with this Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Website.

    8. Indemnification

    You agree to indemnify and save harmless RYU and all directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and suppliers of RYU (in this section, “we” and “us”) from and against any claim, cause of action, demand, cost, loss, expense or liability (including without limitation reasonable professional fees) brought against or suffered or incurred by us as a result of your use of the Website or your breach of this Agreement. When we are threatened with suit or sued by a third party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your failure to provide those assurances may be considered by us to be a material breach of this Agreement. In addition, in the event we are made a party to any claim, suit or action relating to or arising from any services offered by us that is: (a) initiated by you, which is unsuccessful; or (b) initiated by a third party, who is suing you; you will reimburse us at a reasonable rate for all personnel time and expenses expended by us in response to such claim, suit or action including without limitation, all attorney fees and expenses incurred by us with respect to such response. This defence and indemnification obligation will survive termination of this Agreement and your cessation of use of the Website.

    9. Governing Law and Courts; Timing of Claims

    This Agreement and your use of the Services (including access to the Website) will be governed by and interpreted exclusively in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia, and the federal laws of Canada applicable in British Columbia, excluding its conflict of laws rules and all private international laws. You further agree that despite being available from a variety of jurisdictions, the Services (including access to the Website) will be deemed solely based in the Province of British Columbia, Canada; and that the Services and the Website will be deemed to be passive in nature and not giving rise to personal jurisdiction over RYU in jurisdictions other than the Province of British Columbia. You consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts located in the Province of British Columbia in all disputes arising out of or relating to your use of or inability to use the Services and this Agreement. However, you agree that nothing herein precludes RYU’s application for injunctive remedies or other urgent legal relief in any jurisdiction.

    10. Severability; Waiver

    The terms of this Agreement are severable. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable or invalid, then such provision will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and such determination will not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions. No consent or waiver by either party to or of any breach or default by the other party in its performance of its obligations under this Agreement will be deemed or construed to be a consent to or waiver of a continuing breach or default or any other breach or default of those or any other obligations of that party. No consent or waiver will be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties.

    11. Survival

    The provisions of Sections 1, 3-4 and Sections 7-12 will survive termination of the Agreement, howsoever occasioned.

    12. Entire Agreement

    This Agreement, together with those documents incorporated or referred to herein, constitute the entire agreement between you and us relating to your use of the Services and Material, and supersedes any prior understandings or agreements (whether electronic, oral or written) regarding the subject matter, and cannot be amended or modified except by our express and explicit agreement to modify this Agreement in writing, or by us making such amendments or modifications available to you pursuant to a modification of this Agreement as permitted herein. In the event of a conflict between the provisions of the Terms and the provisions of any other document or agreement incorporated or referenced herein, these Terms will govern to the extent of the inconsistency. We reserve the right to unilaterally update or modify (collectively “change”) this Agreement at any time and from time to time. We will notify you of any changes to this Agreement by posting notice of such changes on the Website. You agree that we have this right, and that your continued use of the Services following notice of such change means that you agree to and accept the amendments.
