General

These Terms, (and any other terms or agreements referenced herein, including our Privacy Policy, which can be accessed at https://coinmarketcap.com/privacy), constitute the entire agreement between you and CMC relating to your use of the Service and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and CMC with respect to the Service. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

You agree that no joint venture, agency, partnership, or employment relationship exists between you and CMC and/or its affiliates as a result of these Terms or use of the Service.

In no event shall CMC be responsible or liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder arising out of or caused by, directly or indirectly, forces beyond its control, including, without limitation, strikes, work stoppages, accidents, acts of war or terrorism, civil or military disturbances, nuclear or natural catastrophes or acts of God, and interruptions, loss or malfunctions of utilities, communications or computer (software and hardware) services.

Our performance under these Terms is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in these Terms limits our right to comply with law enforcement or other governmental or legal requests or requirements relating to your use of the Service or information provided to, or gathered by, us with respect to such use. To the extent allowed by applicable law, you agree that you will bring any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to your access or use of this Service within two (2) years from the date on which such claim or action arose or accrued or such claim or cause of action will be irrevocably waived.

These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by CMC without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment by you in violation hereof shall be null and void.

If any provision of these Terms, including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and limitations of liability set forth above, is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the invalid or unenforceable provisions in these Terms shall be deemed superseded by valid and enforceable provisions that, to the extent possible, fulfill the business purposes and intent of such invalid and unenforceable provisions.

In addition to and without limiting the preceding paragraph, some U.S. states and foreign countries may provide rights in addition to those provided in the above "Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability" section or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or liability for incidental or consequential damages. Therefore, the limitations set forth in the above Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability section may not apply to you in whole or in part or there may be state or country specific provisions that supersede such limitations in whole or in part. Any provision of the above Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability section that is declared invalid shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder.

Any heading or section title contained herein is for convenience of reference only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms. The terms "include" and "including" are deemed to include the phrase "without limitation" immediately thereafter.
