  9. Disclaimers—Without limiting the foregoing, the Materials and the Site, is provided “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” without warranty of any kind with respect to the Site and/or Materials, either express or implied, including but not limited to, fitness for a particular purpose, title, or non-infringement. Should applicable law not permit the foregoing exclusion of express or implied warranties, then Cazena hereby grants the minimum express or implied warranty required by such applicable law. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from Cazena, its employees, agents, suppliers or any other persons shall create any warranty, representation or guarantee not expressly stated in this section. Additionally, Cazena does not make any warranties that the Site will be uninterrupted, secure or error free or that your use of the Site will meet your expectations, or that the Site, Materials, or any portion thereof, is correct, accurate, or reliable. Cazena reserves the right to change any part of the Site at any time without notice.
  10. Limitation of Liability—Your use of the Site is at your own risk. Neither Cazena, its affiliates, nor any of their respective officers, directors, agents or other representatives will be liable for any damages, direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, or punitive, including, without limitation, loss of data, income, profit or goodwill, loss of or damage to property and claims of third parties arising out of your access to or use of the Site or arising out of any action taken in response to or as a result of any Materials or other information available on the Site, however caused, whether based on breach of contract, tort (including negligence), proprietary rights infringement, product liability or otherwise. The foregoing shall apply even if you were advised of the possibility of such damages. If you become dissatisfied in any way with the Site, or its Terms of Use or Privacy Policy, your sole and exclusive remedy is to stop your use of the Site. You hereby waive any and all claims against Cazena and its affiliates, agents, representatives and licensors arising out of your use of the Site. Because some states do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain types of damages, these provisions may not apply to you. If any portion of this limitation on liability is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the aggregate liability of Cazena and its affiliates shall not exceed fifty dollars ($50.) The limitation of liability herein is a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain and reflects a fair allocation of risk. The Site would not be provided without such limitations and you agree that the limitations and exclusions of liability, disclaimers and exclusive remedies specified herein will survive even if found to have failed in their essential purpose.
  11. Ability to Accept Terms of Use—You affirm that you are more than 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in the Terms of Use, and to abide by and comply with these Terms.
  12. Notice— From time to time, Cazena may revise these Terms. Your use of the Site following the posting of any revised Terms shall be deemed acceptance of the revised policy. Cazena strongly recommends checking Terms periodically. If you disagree with the provisions of these Terms at any time, your sole remedy is to terminate your use of the Site. Continued use of the Site constitutes your agreement to these Terms as in effect.
  13. Assignment—These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Cazena without restriction.
  14. Miscellaneous—Cazena’s failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
