The Services, any service offered on or through the Services, and the entire contents and software used with the Services, are provided "as is" and “as available” without warranty of any kind whatsoever. We expressly disclaim all warranties, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, and any warranties arising out of course of performance or course of dealing. We make no warranty or guaranty that the contents of the Services are complete, error-free, or that the site will operate in a manner that is secure (unless otherwise indicated), uninterrupted or error-free, or that the Services are or will be maintained free of viruses or other harmful code. It is up to you to take any and all precautions to ensure that the information you access and use from the Services is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses and other items of a destructive nature.

Limitation of Liability
By using our Services, you agree that we will not, for any reason or circumstance, and regardless of legal theory, whether in tort, contract, or otherwise, be liable to you or any other party for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, or any other damages, however caused, and regardless of character, including without limitation lost profits, lost savings, loss of programs or other data on your information handling system or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of any such damages. The foregoing limitation of liability applies, by way of example but without limitation, to any damages arising out of or in connection with (i) your access to, use of, or inability to use, the site (including any service offered on or through the site), or (ii) any errors or omissions in the content of, or performance of the software on, the site (including any service offered on or through the site). Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of liability for certain types of losses or damages, so such exclusions may not apply to you. However, such exclusions shall be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. If any part of this limitation on liability is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the aggregate liability of the released parties for liabilities that otherwise would have been limited shall not exceed ten dollars ($10.00).
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, (including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees), arising from or related to your (i) use of the Services or (ii) violation of any of these Terms.
