Disclaimer of Warranties
YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. SECOND AVENUE, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, AND DISTRIBUTORS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. SECOND AVENUE does not warrant uninterrupted use or operation of the SOFTWARE or that any data sent by OR TO you will be ACCURATE, COMPLETE, transmitted in uncorrupted form, or TRANSMITTED within a reasonable amount of time. YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DELAY OR LOSS OF ANY KIND THAT RESULTS FROM YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF THE SOFTWARE, INCLUDING LOSS OF ANY LOSS OR HARM TO YOUR MOBILE DEVICE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM SECOND AVENUE, THROUGH OR FROM THE SOFTWARE, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS. SOME STATES MAY PROHIBIT A DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
Limitation of Liability
NEITHER SECOND AVENUE NOR ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, OR DISTRIBUTORS WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THESE DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF THE SOFTWARE. BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
THE MAXIMUM TOTAL LIABILITY OF SECOND AVENUE, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, AND DISTRIBUTORS TO YOU FOR ANY CLAIM RELATED TO THE SOFTWARE OR THESE TERMS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, IS THE LESSER OF THE AMOUNT RECEIVED BY SECOND AVENUE FOR YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE OR $10.

THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
You will defend, indemnify and hold Second Avenue, its affiliates, directors, officers, agents, employees, and its licensors, suppliers, and Distributors harmless from any costs, damages, expenses, and liability caused by your use of the Software, your violation of these Terms, or your violation of any rights of a third party through use of the Software.

Waiver and Severability of Terms
The failure of Second Avenue to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective only if in writing and signed by Second Avenue. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.
These Terms are the entire agreement between you and Second Avenue regarding your use of the Software.
