To the full extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that in no event shall any Lanesplitter Garage Parties, nor any other party involved in creating, producing or delivering the Buildboard Platform or any content, be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Terms of Service, (ii) the use of or inability to use the Buildboard Platform or any content (however arising, including our negligence), (iii) statements or conduct of or transactions with any Member or third party on the platform, (iv) publishing or booking of a listing, transportation to or from a host experience, attendance at a host experience, participation in or exclusion from a host experience and the actions of you or others at a host experience, and (v) any other matter relating to our Platform, whether or not Lanesplitter Garage has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set out in these terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

Our liability to you or any third parties in any circumstance is limited to $100 US dollars, or the amount of fees, if any, you paid to us in the twelve (12) months prior to the action that may give rise to liability.
