Third Party Services
The Services also contain links to third party websites, resources and services provided by third parties. VineLoop is not responsible or liable for: (i) the availability of accuracy of such services; or (ii) the information, products or services available on or through such third parties. The availability of such third party services does not imply any endorsement by VineLoop. You are responsible for and assume all risk arising from your use or reliance of any third party services.
Neither these Terms nor the provision of the Services shall be construed to create any duty or obligation of the part of VineLoop to any third party, including, without limitation, any third parties who are participating or the subject of the Services or the Content. No third party shall have any right, privilege, remedy, claim or cause of action against VineLoop, its affiliates or their respective successors.
We reserve the right to investigate and prosecute violations of any of the above and/or involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in prosecuting users who violate the Terms.

VineLoop will not be liable to you or any third party for termination of your access or use of the Services. Any suspension or termination will not affect your obligations to VineLoop under these Terms (including, without limitation, ownership, indemnification and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension or termination.
If a dispute arises from or relates to a breach of the terms stated above, and if the dispute cannot be settled through direct discussions, the parties agree to endeavor first to settle the dispute by mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Procedures before resorting to arbitration. Any unresolved controversy or claim arising from or relating to this breach shall then be settled by arbitration, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you.
Neither VineLoop, its affiliates nor their respective successors shall be liable in any way for any loss, damage, delay or failure of performance resulting directly or indirectly from any cause which is beyond VineLoop’s control, including, but not limited to: fire, explosion, lightning, pest damage, power surges or failures, strikes or labor disputes, water, acts of God, the elements, war, civil disturbances, acts of civil or military authorities or the public enemy, inability to secure raw materials, product or transportation facilities, fuel or energy shortages, acts or omissions of internet carriers, or any other cause beyond VineLoop’s control, whether or not similar to the foregoing.
The waiver by VineLoop of any breach of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of subsequent breaches of the same or different kind. The failure of VineLoop to exercise any rights under these Terms in a particular instance shall not operate as a waiver of VineLoop’s right to exercise the same of different rights in other instances.
No Third Party Beneficiaries
Neither these Terms nor the provision of the Services hereunder shall be construed to create any duty or obligation on the part of VineLoop to any third parties. These Terms do not provide any third party with any right, privilege, remedy, claim or cause of action against VineLoop, its affiliates or their respective successors.
