The warranty set forth in this section is exclusive and in lieu of all liabilities or obligations of ex² solutions for damages arising out of or in connection with the delivery, use, or performance of the services provided under this agreement. To the fullest extent permitted by law, ex² solutions expressly disclaims all other warranties, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, non-interference, compatibility of computer systems, integration, non-infringement, or those arising from the course of dealing, course of trade, or those arising under statue. This disclaimer constitutes an essential part of this agreement. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and accordingly, the foregoing limitations may not apply to you.
Ex² solutions does not warrant that the services will meet your requirements, that operation of the services will be uninterrupted, that the services will be error-free or virus-free, that the media on which the services are provided to users will be free of defects in material and workmanship; that known defects in material and workmanship will be corrected; that the services will possess the functions and features contemplated by any accompanying documentation, that the services will perform in accordance with any accompanying documentation, or that the services will not alter, damage, or erase any computer data or computer programs. Ex² solutions does not warrant or make any representations regarding the use of or the result of the use of the services and the content in terms of correctness, accuracy, timeliness, reliability, applicability, or otherwise.

Any warranties granted herein are conditioned upon (1) you not being in breach of this agreement or having any liability hereunder; (2) you giving ex² solutions written notice of any breach of warranty provided hereunder within thirty (30) days of the time the breach becomes apparent; (3) the breach of warranty being repeatedly demonstrable; and (4) no addition to, or modification of, the services having been undertaken by you or any third party not acting at ex² solutions’ direction.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will ex² solutions or its affiliates be liable to you (or any third party making claims through you) for any damages whatsoever, including but not limited to any direct, indirect, special, consequential, punitive or incidental damages, or damages for loss of use, profits, data or other intangibles, or the cost of procurement of substitute goods or services, unauthorized access to and tampering with your personal information or transmissions, arising out of or related to the use, inability to use, unauthorized use, performance or non-performance of the services, even if ex² solutions has been advised previously of the possibility of such damages and whether such damages arise in contract, negligence, tort, under statute, in equity, at law or otherwise.
The limitations on liability set forth herein are fundamental elements of this agreement. The parties hereby acknowledge and agree that both parties would not be able to perform hereunder on an economic basis without such limitations. Some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
