Violations of e:rules and Liquidated Damages
Please report any violations of the e:rules, by contacting our Admin User
. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated then you will be liable to pay e:strip liquidated damages as follows:
a. If you send unsolicited email advertisements to e:strip email addresses or through e:strip computer systems, you agree to pay e:strip twenty five dollars ($25) for each such email.
Otherwise, you agree to pay e:strip's actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated.
