You may not frame the content of our Site on any other web site unless you first obtain our prior
written consent in each case. You may not use metatags or any other "hidden text" that incorporates
Our Trademarks, or words confusingly similar to Our Trademarks, without our prior written consent.
Our Site includes links to web sites controlled and maintained by third parties ("Third-Party Sites").
The Foundation is not responsible for Third-Party Sites and does not endorse any Third-Party Site’s
content, activities, policies or practices. Any information you share with or actions you take on

OUR SITE AND SITE CONTENT ARE OFFERED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE." TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED
UNDER LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO OUR SITE AND
SITE CONTENT, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE (EVEN IF
THE PURPOSE HAS BEEN DISCLOSED TO US), AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES
ABOUT THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, OR RELIABILITY OF ANY SITE CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH
OUR SITE OR THROUGH LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY SITES, INCLUDING THAT OUR SITE OR SITE CONTENT WILL BE
UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CORRECT ANY ERRORS, INACCURACIES OR OTHER ISSUES

ALTHOUGH WE INTEND TO TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO PREVENT THE INTRODUCTION OF VIRUSES, WORMS, OR OTHER

Limitation of Liability
THE FOUNDATION AND ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM OF
ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER BASED ON ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, LIABILITY, OR INJURY ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF OUR
SITE OR SITE CONTENT OR FROM YOUR BREACH OF THESE TERMS. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE FOUNDATION
OR ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL,
SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR SIMILAR DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST REVENUES OR PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS,
OR LOSS OF DATA) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF OUR SITE OR SITE CONTENT OR THESE TERMS,
REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR ANY OTHER
LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY. OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY
NATURE ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, OUR SITE IS $US25. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO
NOT ALLOW A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR THESE KINDS OF DAMAGES, SO THESE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS
MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to indemnify and hold the Foundation and its directors, officers, employees, and agents
harmless against all liabilities, losses, damages, and costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees)
that any of the indemnified parties may incur arising out of or related to your use of our Site or
Site Content or your violation of these Terms. The Foundation reserves the right to assume the
exclusive defense and control of any matter for which we are entitled to indemnification. You agree
to provide us with all cooperation we reasonably request.
We reserve the right to terminate these Terms, our Site, and Site Content at any time without
notice for any reason. The "Disclaimers," "Limitation of Liability," "Indemnification," and
"General" sections of these Terms (along with any other provision that by its terms contemplates
survival) will survive any termination.
These Terms, which include the Privacy Statement, are the complete agreement between you and
the Foundation regarding your use of our Site and supersede all other agreements (oral or written)
between you and the Foundation regarding its subject matter except that the Youth Playwriting
Fellowship is governed by separate official rules and by participating in the Youth Playwriting
Fellowship, you must agree to those rules, which prevail over any conflict with these Terms.
These Terms are governed by and should be construed according to the laws of the State of New York
applicable to agreements made and performed in New York, unless doing so would lead to the application
of the laws of another jurisdiction. If you choose to access our Site from jurisdictions other than
the United States, you do so at your own risk, and you are responsible for complying with any applicable
local laws. You irrevocably agree: (A) to bring any claim or dispute relating to your use of our
Site and these Terms exclusively in the state and federal courts located in the State and County of
New York; (B) to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts; and (C) to waive any objection
to those courts based on inconvenience or other reasons. You may not assign your rights under
these Terms without the Foundation’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment will be
null and void. If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of these Terms
is unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be deleted (or, if possible, modified
in a manner that will reflect the original intent as closely as possible) and the remaining provisions
will be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. Our failure to assert any right under
these Terms will not be considered a waiver of that right unless the waiver is in writing. The
word “including” in these Terms is intended to be illustrative and means “including without limitation.”
For any questions you may have about these Terms, please contact us by email at:
