    Limitation of Liability

    To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall we be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, loss of income, revenue or profits, opportunity loss, loss of anticipated savings, reputational damage, business interruption, or loss  or corruption of data) arising out of or in any way connected to the Website, including (without limitation) your access or use of or reliance on the Website, or your inability to access or use our Website or any material made available through the Website, your reliance on the Website or any material made available through it, or any computer viruses or linked sites, whether based on a theory of negligence, contract, tort, strict liability, or otherwise, even if you have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

    These limitations of liability shall inure to the benefit of Guardsquare, its affiliates, their successors and assigns, and the employees, agents, directors, officers and representatives of any of the foregoing.

    You agree to defend and indemnify Guardsquare, its affiliates and any of their officers, directors, employees, agents, and representatives, on a full indemnity basis and at Guardsquare’s first request, from and against any claims, causes of action, demands, recoveries, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other costs or expenses brought by third parties as a result of (i) your breach of this Agreement, (ii) your violation of any law or the rights of a third party, or (iii) your use of this Website in breach of the terms of the Agreement.

    To the extent such limitation is not prohibited under applicable law, you agree that you will bring any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to this Website and this Agreement within one (1) year from the date on which such claim or action arose, failure of which shall result in such claim or cause of action being deemed irrevocably waived and lost.
