Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some or all of the above exclusions may not apply to you. 


Your sole and exclusive remedy for any dispute with us is to discontinue your use of the site. 

In no event shall we or any of our directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, affiliates, subsidiaries, successors, or assigns be liable to you or any other party for any claim for direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages (including but not limited to lost profits), or for damage to your computer (including but not limited to harm resulting from downloading or accessing information or material on the internet), or for failure to store or deliver, in a timely or untimely manner, any information or material displayed, or any claim in contract or tort (whether or not arising in whole or part out of our act, omission, fault, negligence, strict liability, or product liability) arising out of or in connection with the site, the content of our site, or from users of our site (whether offline or online), even if such damages are foreseeable or we have been advised of or have constructive knowledge of the possibility of such damages. You further acknowledge and agree that neither we, nor our content providers, licensors, licensees, nor any of the foregoing entities’ respective resellers, distributors, service providers, or suppliers are responsible or liable for any incompatibility between our site and any other website, browser, service, software or hardware. The limitations, exclusions, and disclaimers in this section and elsewhere in these terms of use apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, certain parts of the foregoing paragraph of this section may not apply to you. 

Furthermore, in no event shall we or any of our directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, affiliates, subsidiaries, successors, or assigns be responsible or liable for the content, completeness, accuracy, or legality of information or material displayed in connection with or arising out of our site or any cessation, interruption or delay in the performance of our site for any reason including, without limitation, causes beyond our reasonable control such as earthquake, flood, fire, storm or other natural disasters, the act of God, labor controversy or threat thereof, civil disturbance or commotion, the act of terrorism, disruption of the public markets, war or armed conflict or the inability to obtain sufficient material, supplies, labor, transportation, power or other essential commodity or service required in the conduct of business including internet access, or any change in or the adoption of any law, ordinance, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree. Notwithstanding any legal provision to the contrary, our total liability to you for any damages, losses, and causes of action whether in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, negligence), or otherwise arising out of or connected to our site shall in no event exceed USD 100. 


Upon a request by us, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us and our parent and other affiliated companies, as well as any respective employees, contractors, officers, directors, agents, content providers, licensors, licensees, distributors, representatives and other authorized users, and each of the foregoing entities’ respective resellers, distributors, service providers and suppliers, and all of the foregoing entities’ respective officers, directors, owners, employees, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities and costs (including, without limitation, settlement costs and any legal or other fees and expenses for investigating or defending any actions or threatened actions) incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim arising out of any breach by you of these Terms or claims arising directly or indirectly from your use or misuse of the Site. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you agree to cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses. 


We make no representation that any content of the Site is appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States. Accessing the Site from territories where the content is illegal is expressly prohibited. If you choose to access the Site from a location outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and you are responsible for compliance with all applicable local use controls, laws, and regulations, including those relating to the transition of technical data exported from or imported to the country in which you reside. Notwithstanding the foregoing, CPG makes no representation that materials on or in the Site are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing them from territories where their contents are illegal is expressly prohibited. 


You agree that the laws of Thailand govern all matters arising out of the Terms, without giving effect to any conflicts or choice of law principles that would require the application of the laws of a different jurisdiction. Any dispute or claim arising out of or in relating to the Terms, or the interpretation, making, performance, breach, or termination thereof, will be finally settled by the courts of the Kingdom of Thailand. You agree and submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim or action. The parties agree that all disputes will be adjudicated by a single judge sitting without a jury and you and we agree to a waiver of any and all rights to a trial by jury. You also agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply. 

Please note that by agreeing to these Terms you are: 

  1. Waiving claims that you might otherwise have against us, based on the laws of other jurisdictions, including your own; 
  1. Irrevocably consenting to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, courts in Thailand over any disputes or claims you have with us; 
  1. Submitting yourself to the personal jurisdiction of courts located in Thailand, for the purpose of resolving any such disputes or claims; and 
  1. Agreeing that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any cause of action against us arising out of or related to the Site must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues, or such cause of action shall be permanently barred. 


This contract and any supplemental terms, policies, rules, and guidelines posted on the Site constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all previous written or oral agreements. If any part of the Terms is held invalid or unenforceable under the law of Thailand or under the law, rules, or regulations of a particular country, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The failure by either party to assert their rights hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver of those rights. Any waiver of any provision by us must be in writing and signed by CPG to have effect. 


Your right to use the Site automatically terminates if you violate the Terms or any rules or guidelines posted in connection with the Site. We also reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to terminate your access to all or part of the Site, for any reason, with or without notice. The provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination of the contract or your use of the Site shall be deemed to survive such termination.
