SIMPLIFY3D MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS CONCERNING THE SUITABILITY, RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, TIMELINESS, OR ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES CONTAINED IN OR OBTAINED THROUGH THE SOFTWARE FOR ANY PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES; THESE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. NO AGENT OF SIMPLIFY3D IS AUTHORIZED TO ALTER OR EXCEED THE WARRANTY OBLIGATIONS OF SIMPLIFY3D AS SET FORTH HEREIN. ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED ARE LIMITED TO 30 DAYS OR TO THE SHORTEST PERIOD PERMITTED BY THE APPLICABLE LAW, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.
10. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SIMPLIFY3D OR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, CONTENT PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, AND DIRECTORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER THAT MAY RESULT FROM THE USE OF OR THE INABILITY TO USE THIS SOFTWARE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES ARISING FROM MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DETERIORATION OR CORRUPTION OF FILES, DELETION OR CORRUPTION OF EMAIL, ERRORS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF PROFITS, DEFECTS, VIRUSES, AND/OR DELAYS. THIS LIMITATION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF SIMPLIFY3D HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE CONSIDERATION WHICH SIMPLIFY3D IS CHARGING HEREUNDER DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY CONSIDERATION FOR ASSUMPTION BY SIMPLIFY3D OF THE RISK OF LICENSEE'S CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES WHICH MAY ARISE IN CONNECTION WITH LICENSEE'S USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION. IN ANY CASE, SIMPLIFY3DâS ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU FOR THE LICENSE TO THE SOFTWARE OR $500.00 US DOLLARS. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES; SIMPLIFY3DâS LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. The essential purpose of this provision is to limit the potential liability of Simplify3D arising out of this Agreement. The parties acknowledge that the limitations set forth in this Section are integral to the amount of consideration levied in connection with the license of the Software and that, were Simplify3D to assume any further liability other than as set forth herein, such consideration would of necessity be set substantially higher. If You are dissatisfied with any portion of the Software, Your sole remedy is to cease using it.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Simplify3D and its employees, agents, directors, officers and shareholders, from and against all liabilities, claims, damages, and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneysâ fees and costs) arising out of Your use of this Software, Your breach of this agreement, or Your infringement of the intellectual property rights of third parties.
Simplify3D may terminate this Agreement for breach of any section of this Agreement if You have not cured such breach to the satisfaction of Simplify3D with 10 days after receipt of written notice describing the breach. This right of termination shall not preclude Simplify3D from asserting and obtaining against You any damages Simplify3D may suffer as a result of such breach or from any legal and/or equitable remedies. Simplify3D shall not be held liable to You or any third-party for any termination of Your access to this Software.
13. GOVERNMENT RIGHTS

This Agreement shall be given effect to the fullest extent permissible by law. In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other provisions hereof, and this agreement shall be construed to give maximum legal effect to the intent expressed herein.

Any unauthorized access, modification or change of any information, or any interference with the availability of or access to this Software is strictly prohibited.
