You understand and agree that in our sole discretion, and without prior notice, we may terminate and block your access to the Sites, cancel any purchases acquired, refuse to honor pending and future purchases made from all credit card accounts or online accounts we believe may be associated with you, cancel a purchase associated with any person acting or believed to be acting in concert with you, cancel your postings, or exercise any other remedy available, if we believe that your conduct or the conduct of any person with whom we believe you act in concert, violates or is inconsistent with these TOU or the law, or violates our rights, the rights of a client of ours or those of another user of the Sites. Violating any limitations or terms on the Sites, including but not limited to utilizing automated means to process or place ticket orders or ordering a number of tickets on Artful.ly that exceeds the stated limit, will be deemed to be a violation of these TOU.

Accordingly you agree that liquidated damages are warranted for abusive use. Therefore, you agree that if you, or others acting in concert with you, alone or collectively request more than 100 pages of the Site in any twenty-four hour period, you, and those acting in concert with you, will be jointly and severally liable for liquidated damages in the amount of twenty-five cents ($0.25) per page request each time that a page request is made after that first 100 during that twenty-four hour period. You also agree that this will be the measure of damages for any abusive use that occurred prior to this provision of these TOU being in effect.

We are not required to provide any refund to you if you have violated these TOU or any of our rights. Additionally, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, suspend or discontinue any part of the Sites at any time, with or without notice to you. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to impose limits on certain features and services and to restrict access to any part or to the Sites without notice to you. We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any claim or cause of action arising out of our exercise of the foregoing rights.
