You and Activ8 Athletes agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of San Diego, California. The failure of Activ8 Athletes to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOU shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the TOU must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
16. VIOLATION OF TERMS AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES. Please report any violations of the TOU, by flagging the posting(s) for review, or by emailing to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if it becomes necessary for Activ8 Athletes to pursue legal action to enforce these Terms, you will be liable to pay Activ8 Athletes the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of Activ8 Athletes’ damages for the specified breaches of these Terms:
a. If you post a message that (1) impersonates any person or entity; (2) falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; or (3) that includes personal or identifying information about another person without that person’s explicit consent, you agree to pay Activ8 Athletes one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each such message. This provision does not apply to Content that constitutes lawful non-deceptive parody of public figures.
b. If Activ8 Athletes establishes limits on the frequency with which you may access the Service, or terminates your access to or use of the Service, you agree to pay Activ8 Athletes one hundred dollars ($100) for each message posted in excess of such limits or for each day on which you access Activ8 Athletes in excess of such limits, whichever is higher.
c. If you send unsolicited email advertisements to Activ8 Athletes email addresses or through Activ8 Athletes computer systems, you agree to pay Activ8 Athletes twenty-five dollars ($25) for each such email.
d. If you post Content in violation of the TOU, other than as described above, you agree to pay Activ8 Athletes one hundred dollars ($100) for each Item of Content posted. In its sole discretion, Activ8 Athletes may elect to issue a warning before assessing damages.
If you aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content (except for your own Content) in violation of these Terms without Activ8 Athletes’ express written permission, you agree to pay Activ8 Athletes three thousand dollars ($3,000) for each day on which you engage in such conduct. Otherwise, you agree to pay Activ8 Athletes’ actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated.
Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms, Activ8 Athletes retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in these Terms, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of any such term or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in these Terms, or any combination thereof.
