Disclaimers

Your use of this Site is at your sole risk. This Site is provided on an 'as is' basis. We reserve the right to restrict or terminate your access to the Site or any content or part thereof at any time. Ralph Lauren expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied (including, but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, any warranties that materials on the Site are non-infringing, as well as warranties implied from a course of performance or course of dealing; that access to the Site will be uninterrupted or error-free; that the site will be secure; that the Site or the server that makes the Site available will be virus-free; or that information on the Site will be complete, accurate or current). If you download any materials from this Site, you do so at your own discretion and risk. If the download of any such materials resulted in damage to your computer system or loss of data, you will be solely responsible for such damage. No advice or information, whether verbal or written, obtained by you from Ralph Lauren through or from this Site shall create any warranty of any kind. Ralph Lauren does not make any warranties or representations regarding the use of the materials on this Site in terms of their completeness, fidelity, accuracy, adequacy, usefulness, timeliness, reliability or otherwise.

In certain jurisdictions, the law may not permit the disclaimer of warranties, so the above disclaimer may not apply to you.

Limitation of Liability

You acknowledge and agree that you assume full responsibility for your use of this Site. You acknowledge and agree that there is a possibility that the safety of the information you send or receive during your use of this Site is not secure and may be intercepted by unauthorized parties. You acknowledge and agree that you use the Site at your own risk and that the Site is made available at no charge. By approving matters mentioned above, you acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, neither Ralph Lauren nor its suppliers or third party content providers will be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or other damages arising out of or in any way related to the Site, or any other site you access through a link from this Site or from any action/inactions as a result of communications you send to us, or the delay or inability to use the Site, or for any information, products or services advertised in or obtained through the Site, Ralph Lauren's removal or deletion of any materials submitted to or posted on the site (regardless of whether it arose on the basis of contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise). (The same applies even if Ralph Lauren or any of its suppliers has been advised of the possibility of damages.) The above disclaimer applies, without limitation, to any damages or infringement of rights arising from any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defects, delay in operation or transmission, computer viruses, file corruption, communication-line failure, network or system outage, your loss of profits, or theft, destruction, unauthorized access to, alteration of, loss or use of any record or data, and any other tangible or intangible loss. You specifically acknowledge and agree that neither Ralph Lauren nor its suppliers shall be liable for any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct by any user of the Site. Your sole and exclusive remedy for any of the above claims or any dispute with Ralph Lauren is to discontinue your use of the Site. You and Ralph Lauren agree that with regard to any cause of action arising out of or related to the Site must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues or the action is permanently barred. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, all or a portion of the above limitations may not apply to you.

Indemnification

By using this Site, you agree to compensate, defend and hold harmless Ralph Lauren and its officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, service providers, subcontractors and suppliers from and against any and all losses, liabilities, expenses, and damages (including reasonable attorneys' fees and court cost) arising or resulting from your use of the Site and violation of these Terms of Use. If you cause a technical disruption of the Site or the systems transmitting the Site to you or others, you agree to be responsible for any and all losses, liabilities, expenses and damages (including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) arising or resulting from that disruption. Ralph Lauren reserves the exclusive right, at its own expense, to assume defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to compensation by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with Ralph Lauren in the defence of such matter.

Jurisdiction and Applicable Law

These Terms of Use and your use of the Site are governed by the laws of Japan and you irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of the Tokyo District Court for any action arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use. Although we recognize that it is possible for you to obtain access to this Site from any jurisdiction in the world, we have no practical ability to prevent such access. This Site has been designed to comply with the laws of Japan.

Your continued use of this Site following the posting of changes to these Terms of Use or other policies means that you accept the changes.

In the event that we make material changes to the Terms of Use, notice of these changes will be posted on the homepage of this Site and the revised Terms of Use will take effect thirty days after their publication on this Site.
