21. VIOLATION OF TERMS AND LIQUIDATED DAMAGES

Please report any violations of the TOU, by flagging the posting(s) for review, or by emailing to: abuse@eoxity.com. 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 it becomes necessary for EOXITY to pursue legal action to enforce these TOU, you will be liable to pay EOXITY the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of EOXITY s' damages for the specified breaches of these TOU:
a. If you post a message that (1) impersonates any person or entity; (2) falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; or (3) that includes personal or identifying information about another person without that person's explicit consent, you agree to pay EOXITY one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each such message.
b. If EOXITY establishes limits on the frequency with which you may access the Service, or terminates your access to or use of the Service, you agree to pay EOXITY one hundred dollars ($100) for each message posted in excess of such limits or for each day on which you access EOXITY in excess of such limits, whichever is higher.
c. If you send unsolicited email advertisements to EOXITY email addresses or through EOXITY computer systems, you agree to pay EOXITY twenty five dollars ($25) for each such email.
d. If you post Content in violation of the TOU, other than as described above, you agree to pay EOXITY one hundred dollars ($100) for each Item of Content posted. In its sole discretion, EOXITY may elect to issue a warning before assessing damages.
e. If you are an agent that uses the Service in violation of the TOU, in addition to any liquidated damages under clause (d), you agree to pay EOXITY one hundred dollars ($100) for each and every Item you post in violation of the TOU. An agent will also be deemed an agent of the party engaging the agent to access the Service (the "Principal"), and the Principal (by engaging the agent in violation of the TOU) agrees to pay EOXITY an additional one hundred dollars ($100) for each Item posted by the agent on behalf of the Principal in violation of the TOU.
f. If you aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content (except for your own Content) in violation of these TOU without EOXITY 's express written permission, you agree to pay EOXITY three thousand dollars ($3,000) for each day on which you engage in such conduct.
Otherwise, you agree to pay EOXITY’s actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated. Notwithstanding any other provision of these TOU, EOXITY retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in these TOU, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of any such term or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in these TOU, or any combination thereof.

22. ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS WITH STRIPE

EOXITY uses a 3rd party service (Stripe) to process credit card information. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available. Stripe forces HTTPS for all services, including our public website. Stripe uses HSTS to ensure browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Chrome and Firefox. All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe's internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe's infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn't share any credentials with Stripe's primary services (API, website, etc.). By using the payment process services provided by Stripe, you agree to be bound by its terms of use, terms of service, privacy policies and other relevant policies (Stripe’s terms and conditions are available at https://stripe.com/us/terms, along with its privacy policy, available at https://stripe.com/us/privacy). EOXITY have no access to your credit card information and we disclaim any and all liabilities in connection with Stripe’s use or misuse of the same. We are currently not able to provide any refund services and you are solely responsible for issuing any refunds requested by your customer. For any transaction that is rejected due to reasons other than the expiration of your customer's credit card or debit card, we are not responsible for providing you with any explanations of such rejection. In the event there is any disputes regarding any transaction, you agree to resolve such disputes with your customer and, if applicable, with Stripe.
