10.8 Third-Party Rights. Except insofar as these Terms expressly provides that a third party may in their own right enforce a term of these Terms, a person who is not a party to these Terms has no right under local law or statute to rely upon or enforce any term of these Terms but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party that exists or is available apart from under that local law or statute.
10.9 No Waiver of Tribal Sovereign Immunity. The Pala Band of Mission Indians, a federally recognized Indian Tribe (the “Tribe”), is Pala’s majority shareholder. It is understood and agreed that any suit, action, proceeding and/or legal process of any type whatsoever arising out of these Terms against us will be expressly limited to Pala Interactive LLC, and the recovery of any monetary damages upon any settlement, arbitration, decision or judgment resulting therefrom shall be limited solely to recovery against the assets of Pala Interactive LLC. The Tribe itself is not subject to jurisdiction of state or federal court, and does not waive its sovereign immunity in any respect, nor under any circumstances is there a waiver of any immunity of any elected or appointed officer, official, member, manager, employee or agent of the Tribe. Accordingly, in the event of any dispute, whether in the context of any arbitration or alternative dispute resolution or court proceeding between us and you, we will not assert application of any tribal laws, any requirements of following tribal court procedures, or sovereign immunity.
10.10 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Our obligations under the Terms do not constitute personal obligations of the owners, directors, officers, agents, employees, vendors or supplier of the Site or Services. In no event will we be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential or punitive loss, injury or damage of any kind (regardless of whether we have been advised of the possibility of such loss) including any loss of business, revenue, profits, goodwill or data or any compensation, reimbursement, or damages arising in connection with any termination of the Terms or your participation in the Program. Our liability arising under the Terms, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or for breach of statutory duty or in any other way shall only be for direct damages and shall not exceed the revenues generated and payable to you in relation to the Client Websites that the dispute related to over the previous 12 months at the time that the event giving rise to the liability arises. You are solely responsible for any websites that you use to provide the affiliate services described herein, including their development, operation, and maintenance, and all materials that appear on it, and we shall have no liability for your website or for any of your end users’ claim relating to your website.
