11.) Jurisdiction of Data Storage and Processing
Kimono LLC is based in the State of Utah in the United States and the Kimono Services are accessible worldwide. Access to the Kimono Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. Kimono provides non-US located servers for many of its non-US clients. Specifically, the Kimono Services store and process data provided by US organizations solely in the United States, and data provided by organizations in the European Union is stored and processed solely on servers located within the EU. Data from organizations elsewhere is stored and processed on regional or nation-specific servers or in the US. Upon request, Kimono will inform the Organization where its data is stored and processed.
Kimono complies with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for all persons subject to EU jurisdiction regardless of where their data is stored or processed. Kimono provides tools and services for organizations to comply with the US Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) for all students subject to US jurisdiction regardless of where their data is stored or processed.

All content, features and functionality (including, without limitation, all information, software, text, displays, images, video and audio, and the design, selection and arrangement thereof) comprising the Kimono Services are owned by Kimono or its licensors with all rights reserved, whether such ownership is registered or not, and are protected by U.S. and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights laws.
The Kimono name and all related names, logos, product and service names, designs, and slogans are trademarks of Kimono or its affiliates or licensors.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL KIMONO OR ITS MEMBERS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING FOR ANY MONETARY, BUSINESS OR DATA LOSS ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE KIMONO SERVICES (INCLUDING ANY COMPONENT THEREOF, ANY CONTENT THEREON, OR ANY THIRD PARTY SITE OR CONTENT ACCESSED VIA THE KIMONO SERVICES), EVEN IF KIMONO IS AWARE OF OR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN ANY CASE, KIMONO’S ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO KIMONO IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OR FORM OF ACTION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IF NO AMOUNT HAS BEEN PAID TO KIMONO BY YOU, YOU SHALL BE LIMITED TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF ONLY (UNLESS OTHERWISE PERMITTED BY LAW); IN SUCH A CASE YOU SHALL NOT BE ENTITLED TO DAMAGES OF ANY KIND FROM KIMONO, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION.
BECAUSE SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
15.) Mutual Indemnification
Indemnification by You. You will defend us against any claim, demand, suit, or proceeding made or brought against us by a third party alleging that your data, or your use of any Kimono Services or content in breach of this agreement, infringes or misappropriates such third-party’s intellectual property rights or violates applicable law (a “Claim Against Us”), and will indemnify us from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against us as a result of, or for any amounts paid by us under a court-approved settlement of, a Claim Against Us, provided we (a) promptly give you written notice of the Claim Against Us, (b) give you sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Us (except that you may not settle any Claim Against Us unless it unconditionally releases us of all liability), and (c) give you all reasonable assistance, at your expense.
16.) Dispute Resolution
If you and Kimono enter into a dispute, the dispute shall be resolved as follows. First, Kimono will attempt to work things out with you (and any other affected parties) through communication. If the dispute cannot be resolved by such interaction, you and Kimono agree to go to mandatory non-binding mediation under the laws of the State of Utah. If mediation is not successful, then either party may file an action in a court of the United States as follows: if you file the action, then you agree that you must file in the State or Federal courts located in Salt Lake City, Utah, and that jurisdiction and venue will be proper in those courts, while if we file the action, then we agree that we must file in the US Federal or State courts nearest to your organization’s address as recorded in the Services registration information, and we agree that jurisdiction and venue will be proper in those courts. You and we agree that in any event the laws of the State of Utah will govern without regard to choice or conflicts of law rules.
17.) Ideas and Suggestions
If you suggest an idea to us, you hereby assign an undivided 50% ownership interest in and to such idea to us, including any copyright, trademark, patent, or other intellectual property rights therein, or if you legally cannot assign such ownership to us, then you hereby grant us a perpetutal, irrevocable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable, worldwide license to make, use, sell, offer to sell, import, reproduce, distribute, perform, display, prepare derivative works, and otherwise use, commercialize, and exploit such idea. You will retain the ability to do whatever you want to do with that idea without any payment or other obligation to us, and we will have the same rights without obligation to you.
18.) Cancellation / Termination
You can cancel your subscription to the Kimono Services at any time by requesting that your account be deactivated. If you choose to cancel, we are not obligated to return any moneys paid but we may choose to do so in our sole discretion.
The Terms in the following sections will survive cancellation: Your Ownership of Your Data, Education Data and FERPA, Legal Jurisdiction, Intellectual Property Ownership, Limitation of Liability, Mutual Indemnification, Dispute Resolution, Ideas and Suggestions, and Other Legal Terms.
19.) Monitoring and Enforcement
We have the right to cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Kimono Services. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS KIMONO AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING, OR TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF, INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
However, we cannot review all material before it is uploaded to the Kimono Services, and cannot ensure prompt removal of material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
20.) Other Legal Terms
Your organization and Kimono are independently contracting for this relationship. There is no partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary, or employment relationship between the two.
If we have to notify you of something, we will use the email address you provided at registration, or we’ll put it on the Kimono website. This applies even if the notification is required by law. If you have to notify us of something, send it to one of the “@kimonocloud.com” email addresses on our website or start a support case for it on our support page.
If a court of competent jurisdiction invalidates any provision of these Terms, all the other Terms will remain in effect.
Neither you nor Kimono will be liable for failed or delayed performance caused by something beyond reasonable control—fire, flood, governmental action (of an entity other than you), acts of terrorism, labor strike, power failure, Internet outage, earthquake, or act of God. Both parties will attempt to establish contact as soon as possible to discuss how to proceed afterwards.
