information contained in any such site. Your linking to any other webites is at your own risk. You agree that you must
evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, that you may not rely on said Content, and that

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.

to pursue legal action to enforce these Terms, you will be liable to pay Club Chopper the following amounts as liquidated
damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of Club Choppers' damages for the specified breaches of these Terms:

affiliation with a person or entity; or (3) that includes personal or identifying information about another person

message. This provision does not apply to messages that are lawful non-deceptive parodies of public figures.

such limits or for each day on which you access Club Chopper in excess of such limits, whichever is higher.

your own Content) in violation of these Terms without Club Chopper's express written permission, you agree to pay Club
Chopper three thousand dollars ($3,000) for each day on which you engage in such conduct.

calculated. Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms, Club Chopper retains the right to seek the remedy of
