11. Service Level Agreement.
11.1 Service Availability Objective. Adobe’s objective is to make reasonable efforts to provide Service Availability of 99.9% as measured on a monthly basis (“Service Availability Objective”). Service Availability is defined as the time that the Service is capable of receiving, processing, and responding to requests, excluding Scheduled Maintenance, Customer Error Incidents, and Force Majeure. Service Availability is calculated as a percentage by dividing the number of minutes the Service is available during the applicable month by the number of total minutes in the applicable month, excluding in all cases Scheduled Maintenance, Customer Error Incidents, and Force Majeure.
11.2 Remedy for Failure to Achieve Service Availability Objective. At Your request Adobe will calculate Your Service Availability during a given calendar month. In the event that the Service Availability Objective was not met in a given month, then for each day in such month that the duration of the Service unavailability exceeds four (4) continuous hours, You are entitled to receive a one (1) day Service credit, subject to the Agreement and requirements of this Section 11 (Service Level Agreement). For purposes of calculating the Service Availability
Objective, Adobe will only consider the Service unavailable if You opened a trouble ticket relating to the Service unavailability with the Adobe customer support department within three (3) business days of the Service unavailability. To obtain a credit for Adobe’s failure to meet the Service Availability Objective, You must request such credit in writing no later than the calendar month following the month of the Service unavailability giving rise to Your credit request. In the event of a conflict between the data in Your records and Adobe’s
records, the data in Adobe’s records shall prevail. Any Service credit due hereunder will be applied to Your account at the conclusion of the then-current Service Term. If You purchased the Service on a monthly or pay-per use basis, You are not eligible for any credits arising from or relating to Service unavailability. The Service credit offered in this Section 11 (Service Level Agreement) shall be Your sole and exclusive remedy for any failure of the Service or any failure of Adobe to meet the Service Availability Objective. Any unused Service credits shall expire upon termination of this Agreement.
12. Audit of Service Records.
Adobe reserves the right to audit Service records and data for purposes of confirming that Your Service access and use conform to the requirements of this Agreement, including without limitation the applicable License Metrics. You shall pay Adobe the full amount of any underpayment revealed by such audit plus interest from the date such payments were due under the terms of this Section 12 (Audit of Service Records). Notwithstanding the
foregoing, if such audit reveals an underpayment by more than five percent (5%) for the period covered by the audit, You shall pay all of the fees and costs associated with such audit and the amount underpaid with interest from the date such payment was due pursuant to this Section 12 (Audit of Service Records). This provision does not limit any additional rights and remedies at law or in equity that Adobe may have due to unauthorized use of the Service.
13. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.
13.1 THE SERVICE AND THE ADD-IN ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE BASIS” “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ADOBE, ITS AFFILIATES, CONTRACTORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, RESELLERS, LICENSORS, AND ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SERVICE AND THE ADD-IN DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY,

13.2 SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER LEGAL RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
14. Limitation of Liability.
14.1 NEITHER ADOBE NOR ITS SUPPLIERS SHALL BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, COVER, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE OR ANY SOFTWARE OR ACCESS DATA, INFORMATION OR CONTENT, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR THE LIKE), ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE AND BASED ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY INCLUDING STATUTE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ADOBE OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
14.2 ADOBE’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ACTUAL DAMAGES FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE SERVICE IN THE LAST TWELVE (12) MONTHS, IF ANY. YOU AGREE THAT REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO USE OF THE SERVICE MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE OR BE FOREVER BARRED. ADOBE’S SUPPLIERS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY REASON.
14.3 THE LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY IN THIS SECTION 14 (LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY) ARE INTENDED TO APPLY TO THE WARRANTIES AND DISCLAIMERS ABOVE AND ALL OTHER ASPECTS OF THIS AGREEMENT. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER LEGAL RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. Nothing
contained in this Agreement limits Adobe’s liability to You in the event of death or personal injury resulting from Adobe’s gross negligence.
15. Governing Law.

C’est la volonté expresse des Parties que la présente convention ainsi que les documents qui s’y rattachent soient rédigés en anglais. You are solely responsible for Your familiarity and compliance with any laws that may prohibit You from participating in or using any part of the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the Parties, and all other provisions will remain in full force and effect. Adobe’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such
