In no event shall the aggregate liability of Us, our Licensors, employees or agents to You, or any other party (including liability for any indemnity obligation, breach of warranty, negligence, strict liability in tort, or otherwise, regardless of the form of action or the theory of relief), exceed, in the aggregate, the average monthly charges actually paid by You to Us over the preceding three (3) months, through transactions conducted through the Website out of which any asserted claim with respect to the Website arises. No action, regardless of form, arising out of the transactions under this agreement may be brought by You more than twelve (12) months after the cause of action first arose.
