If you have any basis for recovering damages (including breach of these Terms), you agree that your exclusive remedy is to recover, from the Taut Parties, direct damages up to an amount equal to your Service fee for the month during which the loss or breach occurred. You can’t recover any other damages or losses, including direct, consequential, lost profits, special, indirect, incidental, or punitive.

We hope we never have a dispute, but if we do, you and we agree to try for 60 days to resolve it informally. If we can’t, you and we agree to binding individual arbitration and not to sue in court in front of a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will decide, and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of review (i.e., under the FAA). Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity aren’t allowed. Nor is combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties.
Any dispute arising from these Terms and your use of the Service will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Estonia, EU. You and Taut agree that any judicial proceedings will be taken to and held in Harju County Court in Tallinn, Estonia. Your local consumer laws may give you an option for a different judicial forum in case of conflict laws.
We may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time without notice to you. You may not assign your rights or obligations under these Terms or transfer any rights to use the Service. This is the entire agreement between you and us for your use of the Service. It supersedes any prior agreements between you and us regarding your use of the Service. All parts of these Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by relevant law. If a court or arbitrator holds that we cannot enforce a part of these Terms as written, we may replace those Terms with similar terms to the extent enforceable under the relevant law, but the rest of these Terms will not change.
