12.10 LIABILITY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
You agree to perform all Services in a timely, good, and workmanlike manner, and shall conform to all laws, codes, rules and regulations of any agency or government, to complete the Services in a timely manner. You agree to furnish all supervision, labor, equipment and supplies as requested and in working order, unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties.
Any claim arising from or regarding the Terms, Purchase Orders, Agreements, Services, Projects, or other agreements, brought by Service Provider against Cleanable, Service Provider’s damages shall be limited to the amount of the Purchase Order.
IN NO EVENT SHALL CLEANABLE OR ANY OF ITS REPRESENTATIVES BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL (EITHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT), OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR ENHANCED DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES, OR LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY BREACH OF THE TERMS, PURCHASE ORDERS, AGREEMENTS, SERVICES, PROJECTS, OR OTHER AGREEMENTS, REGARDLESS OF (A) WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE, (B) WHETHER OR NOT CLEANABLE WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND (C) THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED.
We make no representation with respect to the physical condition or safety of any work site or job location which is assigned to you. You, at your own expense, preserve and protect from injury employees engaged in the performance of the Services and all property and persons which may be affected by its operations in performing the Services.
12.12 WAIVER OF LIEN
You agree not to file or permit to be filed any mechanic's notice of intent to lien, or any other lien for the Services to be performed under Purchase Orders or an Agreement. In the event you violate this provision, you will be held liable for all damages arising from said breach, including compensatory damages, attorney's fees and expenses. We reserve the right to suspend any and all payments due to you until the dispute has been resolved.
12.13 HOLD HARMLESS & INDEMNITY
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you will indemnify and hold harmless Cleanable, their officers, directors, partners, representatives, agents and employees from and against any and all claims, suits, liens, judgments, damages, losses and expenses, including legal fees and all court costs and liability (including statutory liability) arising in whole or in part and in any manner from injury and/or death of person or damage to or loss of any property resulting from the acts, omissions, breach or default of Service Provider, its officers, directors, agents, employees and subcontractors. Service Provider will bear all costs of defending any actions or proceedings brought against Cleanable and/or its officers, directors, agents and employees, arising in whole or in part out of any such acts, omission, breach or default. The foregoing indemnity shall include injury or death of any employee of the Service Provider and shall not be limited in any way by an amount or type of damage, compensation, or benefits payable under any applicable workers compensation, disability benefits or other similar employees benefit act. Service Provider hereby expressly permits Cleanable to pursue and assert claims against the Service Provider for indemnity, contribution and common law negligence arising out of claims for damages for bodily injury, property damage, death and personal injury.
12.14 BINDING MANDATORY ARBITRATION
Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to the Purchase Order, Agreement or any other understanding between you and Cleanable, including without limitation any dispute concerning cleaning services, validity, interpretation, enforceability or breach of any agreement between the parties, shall be exclusively resolved by binding arbitration upon a party’s submission of the dispute to arbitration. In the event of a dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating in any way to the agreement, the complaining party shall notify the other party in writing thereof. Within thirty (30) days of such notice, management level representatives of both parties shall meet in Columbus, Ohio to attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith. Should the dispute not be resolved within thirty (30) days after such notice, the Complaining party shall seek remedies exclusively through arbitration. The demand for arbitration shall be made within a reasonable time after the claim, dispute or other matter in question has arisen, and in no event shall it be made after sixty (60) days from when the aggrieved party knew or should have known of the controversy, claim, dispute or breach.
This agreement to arbitrate shall be specifically enforceable in the courts of the State of Ohio. The laws of the State of Ohio shall be applied in any arbitration proceedings, without regard to principles of conflict of laws.
The arbitration shall be conducted by an arbitrator who is mutually agreed upon by you and Cleanable. The parties shall agree in writing to the selection of the arbitrator. If the parties are unable to mutually agree upon an arbitrator within twenty (20) days of commencement of an arbitration proceeding by service of a demand for arbitration, the arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association or a Franklin County judge in the State of Ohio.
It is the intent of the parties that, barring extraordinary circumstances, arbitration proceedings will be concluded within ninety (90) days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit in the interests of justice. Failure to adhere to this time limit shall not constitute a basis for challenging the award.
The parties shall not be entitled to discovery in the arbitration.
The parties shall exchange a copy of all exhibits for the arbitration hearing and shall identify each witness who will testify at the arbitration, with a summary of the anticipated testimony of such witness ten days before the arbitration hearing.
Each party shall pay its own proportionate share of arbitrator fees and expenses. The successful party in the arbitration shall be entitled to any fees incurred (including any fees and costs incurred as a result of an enforcement of such award), including without limitation, arbitration fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, as determined by the arbitrator, and shall be awarded as part of the arbitrator’s award. It is specifically understood and agreed that any party may enforce any award rendered pursuant to the arbitration provisions of this Section by bringing suit in any court of competent jurisdiction. This Section shall survive the termination or cancellation Purchase Orders.
12.15 GOVERNING LAW
All terms & conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Ohio, U.S.A., without reference to any conflicts of law provisions.
12.16 MANDATORY VENUE
Any judicial proceeding brought with regard to, or arising from, the Terms, Purchase Orders, Agreements, Services, Projects, or other agreements shall be exclusively brought in the courts having jurisdiction in the State of Ohio in Franklin County.
In the event of any disputes between you and Cleanable regarding interpretation of the Services, work, schedule, progress of work, terms, conditions, payment amounts, Purchase Orders, Agreements, or Change Orders, you agree to be bound to us to the same extent that we are bound to User, or its representatives both by the terms of any agreement between us and the User and by any and all decisions or determinations made thereunder by the party or board so authorized in such agreement. Until such disputes are resolved, Cleanable reserves the right to withhold all payments owed to Service Provider. Service Provider agrees to assert any claims arising from the Service, Project, or any other agreement with Cleanable within 91 days of the time Service Provider became, or should have become, aware of the facts underlying such claim. Alternatively, if applicable state law requires a longer notice period to submit a claim, then such time period shall apply to any claims Service Provider may have arising from the Service, Project, or any other agreement with Cleanable.
You agree that if you breach any Terms detailed herein, we will provide written notice to you via email (“Compliance Request”). If such breach is not cured by the date and time set forth on the notice (the “Compliance Deadline”), or we believe you reasonably cannot cure the breach, we reserve the exclusive right to terminate any Purchase Order with the Service Provider, without penalty, with written notice. Termination shall go into effect immediately on receipt of the Termination Notice and Service Provider shall not be entitled to any payment for Services not yet completed or performed.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Cleanable, in its sole discretion, may terminate any Purchase Order, Agreement or other understanding between Cleanable and Service Provider, immediately upon written notice. Upon such termination, Service Provider’s only remedy shall be fees owed for Services provided to date.
12.19 TERMINATION FOR INSOLVENCY
We have the right to terminate a Purchase Order where Service Provider becomes insolvent, fails to pay its bills when due, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, goes out of business, ceases production, or becomes unresponsive.
These Terms govern all Services and may only be modified in a writing signed by authorized representatives of both parties. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms, and the remainder of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
