All trademarks, trade names, logos, images, service marks and trade dress displayed on the Site (collectively, the “Marks”) are the property of CARDONE or its licensors, content providers or other third parties.  Nothing in these Terms of Use or on the Site shall be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any Mark without the prior written consent of CARDONE or the owner of the Mark.

You hereby agree that your use of the site, the content, and any other services or material we provide in connection with this site is at your sole risk.  The site and related services and features are provided to you on an "as is" and "as available" basis.  We reserve the right to restrict or terminate your access to the site or any feature or part thereof at any time for any reason.  

To the maximum extent permitted by law, CARDONE expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, regarding any matter, including but not limited to:  (i) merchantability, suitability, fitness for a particular use or purpose, title, noninfringement, and warranties implied from a course of performance or course of dealing;  (ii) results to be derived from the use of the site or any data, content, service, software, hardware, deliverable, or other materials related to the site, or the availability of any of the foregoing; (iii) whether the content is true, complete, accurate, non-misleading or timely; and (iv) the absence of any viruses or other harmful code in the site or its content.  Further, we do not represent, covenant or warrant that access to or services provided by the site will be uninterrupted, error-free or secure.  To the maximum extent permitted by law, if you download any materials from the site, you do so at your own discretion and risk, and you are solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such materials.

Limitation of Liability
Except where prohibited by law, in no event will CARDONE or its officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents or licensors be liable for any damages (whether direct, indirect, punitive, exemplary, incidental, special, consequential or other damages (including lost profits, loss of data or loss of use) arising out of or in any way related to these terms of use or your use or inability to use the site, any websites linked to it, any content or services made available on the site, regardless of whether such damages are based on contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, even if CARDONE or any of its suppliers has been advised of the possibility of damages (collectively, the “excluded damages.”)  You specifically acknowledge and agree that neither CARDONE nor any of its service providers, licensors or representatives will be liable to you for any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of any user of the site.  To the maximum extent permitted by law, your sole and exclusive remedy for any of the above claims or any dispute with CARDONE is to discontinue your use of the site.

In certain jurisdictions, some liabilities cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. In such jurisdictions, the limitation of liability in these terms of use may not apply to you.  If CARDONE cannot lawfully disclaim liability to you under this limitation of liability, CARDONE will be liable to you, in the aggregate for all claims arising hereunder, for liquidated damages not to exceed $100.00 (“liability cap”).  In such event, you acknowledge and agree that the excluded damages for all claims arising hereunder cannot be calculated with reasonable certainty. You further agree that the liability cap represents (i) a reasonable approximation of the excluded damages that you will suffer for all claims arising hereunder and that such liquidated damages do not constitute a penalty, and (ii) the exclusive remedy to you for excluded damages in connection with all claims arising hereunder. The limitations in this paragraph will apply even if any other remedy available to you fails of its essential purpose.

Limitation on Time to File Claims
Any cause of action or claim you may have arising out of or related to these terms of use, the site (including any services provided on the site) or the content must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues or the cause of action is permanently barred.

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless CARDONE, its affiliates and each of their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, service providers, successors and assigns from and against any claims, judgments, awards, losses, liabilities, expenses, damages, costs, fines, penalties and fees (including reasonable attorneys’ and experts’ fees and court costs) (collectively, “Losses”) arising out of or relating to (i) your use of the Site or its Content other than as expressly authorized in these Terms of Use; or (ii) claims arising from your fraud, intentional misconduct, criminal acts or gross negligence.  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 arising or resulting from that disruption.
