Limitation of Liability

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL TRINET BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SITE.

You agree to immediately notify TriNet of and defend, indemnify, and hold harmless TriNet, our affiliates, subsidiaries, joint ventures, third-party service providers, and our respective employees, contractors, agents, officers, and directors from all liabilities, claims, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) that arise out of or are related to your violation of this Agreement or your misuse of the Site.

Violation of This Agreement

Violations of this Agreement may result in civil or criminal liability. TriNet reserves the right (but has no obligation) to investigate occurrences that may involve such violations and, in TriNet’s sole discretion, take appropriate action against you if you violate this Agreement. Such action may include, without limitation, refusing to provide you access to and use of the Site, reporting you to law enforcement authorities, and taking legal action against you.

Governing Law

You agree that all matters relating to your access to or use of the Site, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of the United States and by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. You agree to the personal jurisdiction of and venue in the state and federal courts in Alameda County, California, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue. The preceding provision regarding venue does not apply if you are a consumer based in the European Union. If you are a consumer based in the European Union, you may make a claim in the courts of the country where you reside.

Severability

If any of the provisions of this Agreement are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, then the void or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

Waiver

Any waiver by TriNet of a breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not operate as or be construed to be a waiver of any other breach of such provision or of any breach of any other provision of this Agreement. Any waiver must be in writing. Failure by TriNet to insist upon strict adherence to any term of this Agreement on one or more occasions shall not be considered a waiver or deprive TriNet of the right to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Agreement.

Termination

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate or block your access to all or part of the Site, with or without notice, for any reason or no reason, including without limitation your violation of this Agreement. Upon any termination of the Agreement by either you or TriNet, you must promptly destroy all materials downloaded or otherwise obtained from the Site, as well as all copies of such materials, whether made under these Terms of Use or otherwise.

Void Where Prohibited

Although the Site is accessible worldwide, not all features referenced, provided, or offered through or on the Site are available to all persons or in all geographic locations, or appropriate or available for use outside the United States and Canada. TriNet reserves the right to limit, in its sole discretion, the provision and quantity of any feature, product, or service to any person or geographic area. Any offer for any feature, product, or service made on the Site is void where prohibited. If you choose to access the Site from outside the United States or Canada, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws.
