PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. THESE TERMS INCLUDE PAYMENT AND REFUND POLICIES, A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE, A CLASS ACTION WAIVER, DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES, LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, AND OTHER IMPORTANT CLAUSES THAT AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

“You” and “your” refer to each user of a Service and, as applicable, any individual or entity on behalf of which such individual uses such Service.
1. Permissible Users
You affirm that you are at least 13 years of age. If you are younger than 13 years old, you may not use any Service.
By using a Service, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in your jurisdiction (whichever is greater), or if you are under 18 years of age or the age of majority in your jurisdiction (whichever is greater) but are at least 13 years old (a “Minor”), that you are using such Service with the consent of your parent or legal guardian and that you have received your parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to use the Service and agree to these Terms.
If you are a parent or legal guardian of a Minor, you hereby agree to bind the Minor to these Terms and to fully indemnify us and hold us harmless if the Minor breaches any of these Terms. Furthermore, you agree that you will be responsible for paying any charges that the Minor may incur in the course of using any Service, including without limitation charges for in-App purchases (see Section 4).
2. Your License to Use Services
So long as you comply with these Terms, we hereby grant to you a limited, revocable, nontransferable, non‑sublicensable license to (i) use each Service for which you have paid all associated fees (if any), and (ii) incorporate into User Content (as that term is defined below) any products that Holvonix may provide to you expressly for that purpose (“Tool Content”) and distribute such Tool Content only with its associated User Content. This license is subject, however, to any restrictions upon such activities that may be required to comply with provisions governing your use of any third-party content that is incorporated into, or that you otherwise use in connection with, each Service.
You agree that your rights hereunder, including without limitation rights pertaining to any in-App purchases that you have made, have value solely with respect to the Services as set forth herein and cannot be exchanged for money, goods or services.
You are responsible for maintaining in confidence any security credentials that are associated with your use of any Service and for not disclosing those credentials to any third party. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of such credentials, you agree to notify us immediately.
Except and solely to the extent that you are a parent or legal guardian acting on behalf of a Minor, you may not facilitate the use of any Service by any third party (“Unauthorized Use”), whether by providing to any third party, directly or indirectly, your security credentials associated with any Service, any device by which you gain access to any Service, or otherwise. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any loss or damage arising from any Unauthorized Use.
You may not:
- Provide any false information or impersonate anyone else when using any Service
- Allow anyone else to impersonate you for the purpose of using any Service
- Take any action to disable any Service or impair its operation
- Use any Service in a way that violates any local, state or national law, regulation or order of any court or any intellectual property or other right of any third party

- Distribute Tool Content on a standalone basis

If we present to you any additional policies regarding your use of a particular Service (“Service-Specific Policies”), you agree to comply with all such Service-Specific Policies with respect to that Service.
Any Service or component thereof may require Internet connectivity to function. Messaging and data rates may apply. You must comply with applicable third party agreements (for example, your wireless data service agreement) when using any Service.
“Prohibited Content” means any content that (i) falsely implies our endorsement of, recommendation of, or association with any third party, (ii) uses our name or any of our trade names, trademarks, or service marks in violation of these Terms or any applicable law, (iii) violates the terms or policies of any third party to which such content is provided, or (iv) is or includes any hate speech, threatening statement, incitement to violence, pornography, nudity, or graphic or gratuitous violence. You may not use any Service to create or distribute any Prohibited Content.
It is solely your responsibility to ensure that making or distributing (i) any User Content (as that term is defined below) or (ii) any recording of your use of an App does not violate any rights of third parties, including without limitation any privacy, publicity, or intellectual property rights of other users or our licensors.
3. Our Ownership and License Rights
We and, as applicable, our licensors, retain all right, title, and interest in and to the Services and all data created by the Services (except User Content, as that term is defined below), and all intellectual property rights in all of the foregoing.
You may not reproduce, publish, transfer, sell, lease, sublicense, distribute, or make derivative works of any Service or any information contained therein. In addition, you may share User Content (as that term is defined below) as permitted by any Service.
“User Content” means any content, including without limitation any screen capture, video or audio recording, that you create or distribute using any Service, including any Tool Content that may be incorporated therein. You retain your rights to all User Content, except for any Tool Content that is incorporated therein, with respect to which we and, as applicable, our licensors own all rights. If you share any User Content with any third party, you hereby grant to us a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide license, including a right to grant sublicenses, to use, store, reproduce, publicly display and create derivative works of such User Content. You agree not to include any Prohibited Content in any User Content.
You hereby waive all moral rights relating to User Content, including, without limitation, any and all rights of paternity, integrity, disclosure and withdrawal and any other rights that may be known as or referred to as “moral rights,” “artist’s rights,” “droit moral,” or the like. This waiver applies to rights of identification of authorship and any and all rights of approval, restriction or limitation on use, or subsequent modification or destruction.
You acknowledge that we may use Services to present advertisements or referral or affiliate links (“Advertising Content”) to you and that we may be compensated by third parties for doing so or when you or others interact with Advertising Content. Furthermore, you agree that: (i) we may include Advertising Content in any content you share using a Service; (ii) neither we nor any third party owe any compensation with regards to Advertising Content to you or to anyone with whom Advertising Content is shared; and (iii) you are solely responsible for following all applicable laws, regulations, and third-party policies regarding your sharing of Advertising Content.
You understand that by using any Service, you may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Services at your sole risk and that we shall not have any liability to you for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
We make no representations, recommendations or endorsements with regard to, and assume no responsibility for the suitability of, any content provided by any third party, whether that content appears within any Service or elsewhere, including without limitation (i) the title and lyrics of any music that may be performed in conjunction with your use of any Service and (ii) any content provided by websites or apps to which Services link. You acknowledge that you may find some third-party content offensive and, in such case, your only remedy will be to stop viewing or listening to that content.
Our reference to or use of a third party’s name, trade name, trademark, or service mark does not imply the third party’s endorsement of, recommendation of, or association with us.
At any time, in our sole discretion and with or without notice to you, we may modify, discontinue, or change the availability of any Service or any portion thereof or terminate some or all of your rights with respect thereto.
While we are pleased to receive feedback about our existing Services (please see Section 13), we do not accept unsolicited submissions of any type, whether concerning enhancements to existing Services, ideas for Services that may be offered in the future, or otherwise. Any feedback about existing Services will be considered non‑confidential, and we will have an unrestricted right to use it. You hereby assign to us all right, title, and interest to any other submissions that you may provide to us, including all intellectual property rights therein. You agree that you will not be compensated for evaluating any Service or for any feedback or submissions that you may provide, and that you will bear all of your own costs associated with using any Service.
4. Refund, Payment, and In-App Purchase Policies
All purchases, including without limitation App and in-App purchases, are FINAL, and WE WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY REFUNDS. However, if you make a purchase via a third-party distribution platform (including without limitation Google Play, the Apple App Store, the Windows Store, or Steam), the distribution platform may have its own policies for refunds; consult your agreement with the distribution platform and its policies to see if and how you may obtain a refund via the distribution platform.
For certain Apps, you may be able to make non-renewing subscription, auto-renewing subscription, consumable, or non‑consumable in-App purchases. Each in-App purchase will become part of the App with respect to which it is purchased. Consumable in-App purchases (which will be marked as such within the App) cannot be transferred among devices; can be downloaded only once; and after being downloaded, cannot be replaced. Once a consumable in-App purchase is acquired and received by you, we will not have any liability to you in the event of any loss, destruction, or damage to that in-App purchase. When you make an in-App purchase, our servers have no record of your transaction or payment details, and we have no obligation to refund to you the amount you paid for any in‑App purchase, irrespective of any failure of performance of, or any dissatisfaction you may have with, that purchase.
For Apps from the Apple App Store: For Apps from the Apple App Store, the types of in-App purchases are further described in “About in-app purchases” at Apple Support. The following policies apply to auto-renewing subscription in-App purchases made via Apps from the Apple App Store: (1) payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase; (2) the subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period; (3) your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period; (4) subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user’s account settings after purchase (see “View, change, or cancel your subscriptions” at Apple Support); (5) any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription, as applicable.
For Apps from Google Play: If you cancel a subscription in-App purchase for an App from Google Play, you will not receive a refund for the current billing period, but the subscription content will remain available for the remainder of the current billing period. We will not provide any refunds for any App or in-App purchase made via Google Play more than 48 hours after the purchase.
You acknowledge that some advertised App features may be available to you only if you make one or more in-App purchases.
5. Incorporated Provisions
Some Services may utilize open source software. In each such case, we will make applicable open source license terms available to you from within the Service to the extent that those terms so require.
The Additional Terms for Apps on Apple-Branded Devices (“Apple-Branded Device Terms”) set forth below are incorporated into these Terms solely with respect to Apps on Apple-branded devices running iOS, watchOS, tvOS, or macOS. In the event of any conflict between the Apple-Branded Device Terms and any other provision of these Terms, the Apple-Branded Device Terms will govern; provided, however, that in no event will the Apple-Branded Device Terms supersede any of the provisions set forth in Section 7 (Indemnity), Section 8 (Disclaimer of Holvonix Warranties) or Section 9 (Limitation of Holvonix’s Liability and Damages) of these Terms.
The Additional Terms for Pre-Release Services (“Pre-Release Terms”) set forth below are incorporated into these Terms solely with respect to Pre-Release Services (as that term is defined in the Pre-Release Terms). In the event of any conflict between the Pre-Release Terms and any other provision of these Terms, the Pre-Release Terms will govern.
You acknowledge that you have read and have understood the Important Safety Information set forth below.
The Additional Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability Regarding Epic Materials set forth below are incorporated into these Terms.
6. Your Representations and Warranties
You represent and warrant that you reside in the United States of America, or that you reside in another country in which use of the Services is permitted under applicable law.

You represent that you have the capacity to enter into a valid contract.
If you are using any Service on behalf of another individual or any entity, you represent that you currently have, and you warrant that so long as you continue to use such Service you will continue to have, all authority required to use the Service on behalf of that individual or entity and to bind that individual or entity to these Terms.
If you use any Service in a manner that incurs any charge (including without limitation any charge for any in-App purchase) that another individual or entity is obligated to pay, you warrant that such individual or entity has authorized you to incur such charge.
You warrant that (a) you have the right to provide any information that you do provide in the course of using the Services, and (b) to the best of your knowledge, all such information is truthful and accurate. You warrant that you have the right to grant every license, including without limitation the User Content license, that you have granted in Section 3. You warrant that (a) you have the right to make and to distribute all User Content and (b) doing so will not violate these Terms or any privacy, publicity, intellectual property or other right of any third party.
You will indemnify, defend (at our request) and hold us, our owners, members, officers, managers, employees, agents, representatives, affiliates, partners, suppliers, distributors, and licensors harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs (including attorneys’ fees), or other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from (a) your breach or alleged breach of the Terms or any misrepresentation made by you; (b) your use of any Service; (c) your violation of any intellectual property right or any other right of any third party; or (d) your failure to comply with any law, statute, ordinance, or regulation. You will cooperate as fully required by us in the defense of any claim. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you will not in any event settle any claim without our prior written consent.
8. Disclaimer of Holvonix Warranties
Your access to and use of the Services is at your own risk. You understand and agree that Services are provided to you on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. Without limiting the foregoing, WE DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
We make no warranty and disclaim all responsibility and liability for the completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, security or reliability of any Service. We will not be responsible or liable for any harm that results from your access to or use of any Service or from termination of your access to any Service or any portion thereof. We make no warranty that any Service will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis; that any Service or the server that makes any Service available is free from any harmful components, including, without limitation, viruses; or that your use of any Service is lawful in any particular jurisdiction. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained from us or through any Service, will create any warranty not expressly made herein. The foregoing provisions of this Section 8 are subject to any limitations imposed by applicable law.
9. Limitation of Holvonix’s Liability and Damages
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE AND OUR OWNERS, MEMBERS, OFFICERS, MANAGERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, AFFILIATES, PARTNERS, SUPPLIERS, DISTRIBUTORS, AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS, DATA, USE OR GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE OR TERMINATION OF YOUR ABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE ANY SERVICE OR ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY SERVICE’S OPERATION, OR ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM ANY SERVICE; (ii) ANY CONDUCT OF OR ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ANYONE OTHER THAN US; (iii) ANY ACTION TAKEN IN CONNECTION WITH AN INVESTIGATION BY US, OR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES, OR ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES REGARDING YOUR OR ANY OTHER PARTY’S USE OF ANY SERVICE; OR (iv) ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR OR ANY OTHER USER’S COMPUTER, MOBILE DEVICE, OR OTHER EQUIPMENT OR TECHNOLOGY, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARISE FROM WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR OUR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN NO EVENT WILL OUR TOTAL LIABILITY AND THAT OF OUR AFFILIATES TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES OR CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED ONE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($100.00).
YOU AGREE THAT IN THE EVENT YOU INCUR ANY DAMAGES, LOSSES OR INJURIES THAT ARISE OUT OF OUR ACTS OR OMISSIONS, THE DAMAGES, IF ANY, CAUSED TO YOU ARE NOT IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION PREVENTING ANY EXPLOITATION OF ANY SERVICE, AND YOU WILL HAVE NO RIGHT TO ENJOIN OR RESTRAIN THE DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION, ADVERTISING, EXHIBITION OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY SERVICE.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS, YOU MAY BE WAIVING RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS THAT ARE AT THIS TIME UNKNOWN OR UNSUSPECTED, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH WAIVER, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND, AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE, THE BENEFITS OF SECTION 1542 OF THE CIVIL CODE OF CALIFORNIA (USA), AND ANY SIMILAR LAW OF ANY STATE OR TERRITORY, WHICH PROVIDES AS FOLLOWS: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
10. Choice of Law, Jurisdiction and Forum; Arbitration; Time for Filing Cause of Action
These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California (USA), without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions or your state or country of residence. You and we consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in the County of Santa Clara, California (USA) and expressly waive any objection or defense based on lack of personal jurisdiction or venue in connection with any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms or any Service. Notwithstanding this, you agree that we shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive or other equitable relief in any jurisdiction.
For any claim related to these Terms or any Service, excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief, either we or you may elect at any point in or during a dispute or proceeding to resolve the claim through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. A party electing arbitration will initiate it through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider in the United States mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration will be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions; (b) the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR ANY SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, THE CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Neither you nor we will have the right to participate in a class action, either as a class representative, class member or class opponent; act as a private attorney general; or join or consolidate claims with claims of any other person or involving any other transaction. No court, arbitrator or other forum will have authority to conduct any such class, private attorney general or multiple-party proceeding with respect to any cause of action arising under or relating to these Terms.
11. Entire Agreement
These Terms, including all provisions that are incorporated by reference, are the entire and exclusive agreement between us and you regarding the Services and all other matters governed by these Terms.
We may revise these Terms from time to time. If any revision is material, we will notify you via the applicable Service or by other means. By continuing to access or use the Services after any revision becomes effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
You and we are independent contractors. We are not your agent, and you are not our agent.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such, or any other, right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. We may assign any of our rights or obligations under the Terms without notice to you.
There are no third-party beneficiaries of these Terms.
The headings contained in these Terms are for convenience only and shall not be interpreted to limit or otherwise affect the provisions of these Terms.

Additional Terms for Apps on Apple-Branded Devices
1. Acknowledgement: You acknowledge that the Terms constitute an agreement between you and us, and not with Apple Inc. (“Apple”), and that we, rather than Apple, are solely responsible for Apps and the content thereof. You agree to comply with all Usage Rules set forth in Apple’s App Store Terms of Service available via https://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/ (which permits you to specify your country of residence).
2. Scope of License: You may use the App solely on Apple products that you own or control. You must comply with the App Store Terms of Service available via https://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/ (which permits you to specify your country of residence). Use of any App with Apple’s Game Center is subject to Apple’s Game Center Terms and Conditions available via https://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/gamecenter/ (which permits you to specify your country of residence).
3. Maintenance and Support: You acknowledge that Apple has no obligation to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to any App.
4. Warranty: In the event that an App purchased via an Apple distribution platform fails to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for the App to you. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to any App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be our sole responsibility.
5. Product Claims: We, rather than Apple, are responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to any App or your possession or use of any App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
6. Intellectual Property Rights: In the event of any third party claim that an App or your possession or use thereof infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, we, rather than Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim.
7. Third Party Beneficiary: You and we acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of the Terms, and that, upon your acceptance of the Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Terms against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
Additional Terms for Pre-Release Services
“Pre-Release Service” means any Service or version thereof that we, at our sole discretion, invite you to use before we make that Service or version available to the general public.
You will be able to identify that a Service or version thereof is a Pre-Release Service because either (i) we will have used a term such as “pre-release”, “alpha”, “beta”, “testing” or a similar term within the Service or (ii) we will have invited you to use an App or version thereof via Apple’s TestFlight program or Google Play’s testing program.
We have no obligation to invite you to use any Pre-Release Service or to provide any Pre-Release Service to you. You may decline any invitation to use a Pre-Release Service and may stop using any Pre-Release Service at any time.
We may discontinue any Pre-Release Service, or terminate your rights with respect to any Pre-Release Service, at any time. You agree that promptly following our providing notice of such discontinuance or termination, you will stop using the Pre-Release Service and, as applicable, will uninstall it.
You acknowledge that we may provide Pre-Release Services, or any components thereof, at prices that are different from the prices for Services that we make available to the general public, and that we may change such prices at any time in our sole discretion.
You agree not to disclose any information about or related to any Pre-Release Service to any third party without our prior written consent.

- If symptoms occur during game play, immediately stop playing and see a doctor.

Additional Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability Regarding Epic Materials
Some Services may include the Unreal® Engine code and other code, materials, and information (the “Epic Materials”) from Epic Games, Inc. (“Epic”). All Epic Materials are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, “with all faults” and without warranty of any kind. We, Epic, and Epic’s affiliates disclaim all warranties, conditions, common law duties, and representations (express, implied, oral, and written) with respect to the Epic Materials, including without limitation all express, implied, and statutory warranties and conditions of any kind, such as title, non-interference with your enjoyment, authority, non-infringement, merchantability, fitness or suitability for any purpose (whether or not Epic knows or has reason to know of any such purpose), system integration, accuracy or completeness, results, reasonable care, workmanlike effort, lack of negligence, and lack of viruses, whether alleged to arise under law, by reason of custom or usage in the trade, or by course of dealing. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we, Epic, and Epic’s affiliates make no warranty that (1) any of the Epic Materials will operate properly, including as integrated in any Service, (2) that the Epic Materials will meet your requirements, (3) that the operation of the Epic Materials will be uninterrupted, bug free, or error free in any or all circumstances, (4) that any defects in the Epic Materials can or will be corrected, (5) that the Epic Materials are or will be in compliance with a platform manufacturer’s rules or requirements, or (6) that a platform manufacturer has approved or will approve any Service, or will not revoke approval of any Service for any or no reason. Any warranty against infringement that may be provided in Section 2-312 of the Uniform Commercial Code or in any other comparable statute is expressly disclaimed by us and Epic. We, Epic, and Epic’s affiliates do not guarantee continuous, error-free, virus-free, or secure operation of or access to the Epic Materials. This paragraph will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, neither we, Epic, Epic’s licensors, nor its or their affiliates, nor any of our or Epic’s service providers, shall be liable in any way for loss or damage of any kind resulting from the use or inability to use the Epic Materials or otherwise in connection with these Terms, including but not limited to loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure, or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses. In no event will we, Epic, Epic’s licensors, nor its or their affiliates, nor any of our or Epic’s service providers be liable for any loss of profits or any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive, or exemplary damages, or any other damages arising out of or in connection with these Terms or the Epic Materials, or the delay or inability to use or lack of functionality of the Epic Materials, even in the event of our, Epic’s, or Epic’s affiliates’ fault, tort (including negligence), strict liability, indemnity, product liability, breach of contract, breach of warranty, or otherwise and even if we, Epic or Epic’s affiliates have been advised of the possibility of such damages. These limitations and exclusions regarding damages apply even if any remedy fails to provide adequate compensation.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability, and that of our service providers, Epic, Epic’s licensors, its and their affiliates, and Epic’s service providers, shall be limited to the full extent permitted by law.
