No Warranties

=============

 

The Application is provided to You "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" and with all

permitted under applicable law, the Company, on its own behalf and on behalf

of its affiliates and its and their respective licensors and service

providers, expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied,

statutory or otherwise, with respect to the Application, including all implied

warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and

non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing,

course of performance, usage or trade practice. Without limitation to the

foregoing, the Company provides no warranty or undertaking, and makes no

representation of any kind that the Application will meet your requirements,

achieve any intended results, be compatible or work with any other software,

applications, systems or services, operate without interruption, meet any

performance or reliability standards or be error free or that any errors or

defects can or will be corrected.

 

Without limiting the foregoing, neither the Company nor any of the company's

provider makes any representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied:

(i) as to the operation or availability of the Application, or the

information, content, and materials or products included thereon; (ii) that

reliability, or currency of any information or content provided through the

trojan horses, worms, malware, timebombs or other harmful components.

 

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain types of warranties

or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so some or all of

the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to You. But in such a case

the exclusions and limitations set forth in this section shall be applied to

the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law. To the extent any

warranty exists under law that cannot be disclaimed, the Company, not the

Application Store, shall be solely responsible for such warranty.

 

Limitation of Liability

=======================

 

Notwithstanding any damages that You might incur, the entire liability of the

Company and any of its suppliers under any provision of this Agreement and

your exclusive remedy for all of the foregoing shall be limited to the amount

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall the

Company or its suppliers be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or

consequential damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for

loss of profits, loss of data or other information, for business interruption,

for personal injury, loss of privacy arising out of or in any way related to

the use of or inability to use the Application, third-party software and/or

third-party hardware used with the Application, or otherwise in connection

with any provision of this Agreement), even if the Company or any supplier has

been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if the remedy fails

of its essential purpose.

 

Some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of

incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may

not apply to You.

 

You expressly understand and agree that the Application Store, its

subsidiaries and affiliates, and its licensors shall not be liable to You

under any theory of liability for any direct, indirect, incidental, special

consequential or exemplary damages that may be incurred by You, including any

loss of data, whether or not the Application Store or its representatives have

been advised of or should have been aware of the possibility of any such

losses arising.

 

Severability and Waiver

=======================

 

Severability

such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of

such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the

remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.

 

Waiver

------

 

Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or to require

performance of an obligation under this Agreement shall not effect a party's

ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time

thereafter nor shall be the waiver of a breach constitute a waiver of any

subsequent breach.
