You may view, copy or print pages from the website solely for personal, non-commercial purposes. You may not otherwise use, modify, copy, print, display, reproduce, distribute or publish any information from the website without the express, prior, written consent of IFLP.
We may take any action with respect to user content deemed necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion. While we reserve the right to remove content, job postings, resumes or other material from the website, we do not assume any obligation to do so and disclaim any liability for failing to take any such action.
You expressly agree that your use of the website is at your sole risk. The website, the online service and the content is provided “as is” and “as available” for your use, without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, unless such warranties are legally incapable of exclusion. IFLP provides the website and the online service on a commercially reasonable basis and IFLP makes no representations or warranties that the website, the online service, the content or any services offered in connection with the website are or shall remain uninterrupted or error-free, the content shall be non-infringing on any third party’s intellectual property rights, that defects shall be corrected, that the web pages on the website, the online service, any electronic communication or the servers used in connection with the website are or shall remain free from any viruses, worms, time bombs, drop dead devices, trojan horses or other harmful components, or that any person using the website will be the person that he or she represents himself or herself to be. IFLP does not guarantee that you will be able to access or use the website and/or the online service at times or locations of your choosing, or that IFLP shall have adequate capacity for the website and/or the online service as a whole or in any specific geographic area.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold IFLP and its affiliates, subsidiaries, owners, directors, officers, employees and agents harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, proceedings, liabilities, judgments, losses, damages, expenses and costs (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees) assessed or incurred by IFLP, directly or indirectly, with respect to or arising out of: (i) your failure to comply with these Terms; (ii) your breach of your obligations under these Terms; (iii) your use of the rights granted hereunder, including without limitation any claims made by any third parties; and/or (iv) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IFLP’s entire liability and your exclusive remedy with respect to the use of the website, the online service and/or any service provided in connection with the website shall be the cancellation of your user account with IFLP. In no event will IFLP be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages arising from your use of the website and/or any service provided in connection with the website, the online service and/or any service provided in connection with the website, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the website, the online service and/or any service provided in connection with the website, including, but not limited to, (a) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content, (b) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to and use of the website, the online service and/or any service provided in connection with the website, (c) any unauthorized access to or use of our computer servers and/or any and all personal information and/or financial information stored therein, (d) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the website, the online service and/or any service provided in connection with the website, and/or (e) any viruses, worms, time bombs, drop dead devices, trojan horses or other harmful components that may be transmitted to or through the website, the online service and/or any service provided in connection with the website by any third party or for any loss or damage of any kind. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions IFLP’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
