Affiliate acknowledges that it has no rights, express or implied, in the IPRs, and save as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, the use of such IPRs shall not be construed as a grant of any right or license to use it for any other purpose.  Any and all intellectual property developed, invented, or conceived of solely by Company, including but not limited to, updates, improvements, modifications, and derivative works, shall be exclusively owned by Company.  

(b)           So long as you are in compliance with this Agreement, Company grants a non-exclusive limited, non-transferable, royalty-free license to use the Company’s logos and trademarks.  Affiliate may use our trademarks only to the extent required to establish links and perform obligations as an Affiliate under this Agreement. You may not copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the IPRs, any updates, or any part thereof.  Any attempt to do so is a violation of this Agreement.  If you breach this restriction, you may be subject to prosecution and damages.   


(a)            COMPANY provides the Services, WEBSITE, AND PROGRAM “as is,” “with all faults”, and the entire risk as to satisfactory quality, performance, accuracy, and effort is with you.  To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, COMPANY makes no representations, warranties or conditions, express or implied.  COMPANY expressly disclaimS any and all warranties or conditions, express, statutory and implied, including without limitation: (a) warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, workmanlike effort, accuracy, title, quiet enjoyment, no encumbrances, no liens and non-infringement; (b) warranties or conditions arising through course of dealing or usage of trade; and (c) warranties or conditions of uninterrupted or error-free access or use.  You assume all risk for any damage that may result from your use of or access to the WEBSITE OR PROGRAMs, including all COMPANY materials, available through the WEBSITE.   

(b)           In no event will COMPANY and its affiliates be liable for any indirect, consequential, special, incidental, or punitive damages (including damages for loss of profits, goodwill, or any other intangible loss) arising out of, based on, or resulting from this Agreement or your use or access, or inability to use or access, the WEBSITE, PROGRAM, or any of the materials on the WEBSITE, whether based on (a) breach of contract, (b) breach of warranty, (c) negligence, or (d) any other cause of action, even if COMPANY has been advised of the possibility of such damages.  To the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law, COMPANY and its affiliates assume no responsibility for any (e) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of the Content or other materials, (f) personal injury or property damages, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of the PROGRAM and WEBSITE, (g) any unauthorized access to or use of our servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein, (h) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the WEBSITE, (i) any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through our WEBSITE and Products by any third-parties, (j) any errors or omissions in any Content or other materials or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of any materials posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the WEBSITE, and/or (k) the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third-party.  The aggregate liability of COMPANY and its affiliates to you for all claims arising out of or relating to the use of or inability to use any portion of the Services, Products or otherwise under this Agreement, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise is limited to $10.00.  Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential damages.  Accordingly, the above limitations may not apply to you.  Each provision of this Agreement that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended to and does allocate the risks between the parties under this Agreement.  This allocation is an essential element of the Agreement of the parties.  The limitations in this section will apply even if any limited remedy fails its essential purpose.

     Each Party (a “Receiving Party”) shall keep the confidential information belonging to the other Party (a “Supplying Party”) confidential and secret and shall not use or disclose or make the confidential information available, directly or indirectly, to any person other than its officers and employees who need the confidential information enable the Receiving Party to perform its obligations under Agreement and provided that such officers and employees are also obliged to keep such confidential information confidential and secret. The foregoing obligations shall not apply to any information acquired by the Receiving Party which at the time of its acquisition was in the public domain, or at a later date comes into the public domain through no fault of the Receiving Party.

The Parties agree that in the event that one or more of the provisions of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable, that those provisions shall be deemed severed from the remainder of this Agreement.
