This limitation of liability is part of the basis of the bargain between the parties and without it the terms and prices charged would be different. This limitation of liability shall:
You may terminate this Agreement, for any or no reason, at any time, with notice to Hachi pursuant to Section 8.C. This notice will be effective upon Hachi processing your notice. Hachi may terminate the Agreement and your account for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice.

Upon the termination of your Hachi account, you lose access to the Services. The terms of this Agreement shall survive any termination, except Sections 2 ("Your Rights") and 3.a-b, and d ("Our Rights and Obligations") hereof.
This Agreement or any claim, cause of action or dispute ("claim") arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of Delaware regardless of your country of origin or where you access Hachi, and notwithstanding of any conflicts of law principles and the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods. You and Hachi agree that all claims arising out of or related to this Agreement must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Delaware, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Option paragraph below. You and Hachi agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Delaware for the purpose of litigating all such claims. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that Hachi shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; and if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way.

You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other Hachi services, third-party content or third party software.
Our failure to act with respect to a breach of this Agreement by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to that breach or subsequent similar or other breaches.
