4. Third-Party Websites

The Resources may contain links to websites maintained by third parties (individually a “Third-Party Site”), and a Third-Party Site may contain links to the Resources.  NITTEC is not responsible for any content on a Third-Party Site.  No link from the Resources to a Third-Party Site, or from a Third-Party Site to the Resources, is an approval, endorsement, recommendation or sponsorship by NITTEC of such Third-Party Site or any such content, and any link from a Third-Party Site to the Resources, or from the Resources to a Third-Party Site, is provided only for your convenience.  In addition, your use of a Third-Party Site will be subject to its terms of service, privacy policy and other provisions, for which you are responsible if you access such Third-Party Site.  Without limiting the generality of this Section, the Resources make use of Google Maps.  As such, you are bound by the Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service, including the Google Privacy Policy.

THE RESOURCES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE).

6. Limitation on Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NITTEC SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, DIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE RESOURCES, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHER), AND EVEN IF NITTEC KNEW, OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN, OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  HOWEVER, IF A COURT SHOULD DETERMINE THAT THE IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING SENTENCE IS NOT ENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, NITTEC’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO ANY DIRECT DAMAGES ACTUALLY INCURRED BY YOU.

7. Indemnification

You must indemnify, defend and hold harmless NITTEC, its members and other affiliates, and its and their employees, officers and other agents, from all costs, expenses, damages, fines, liabilities, losses, penalties and other payments (including, but not limited to, all reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel to NITTEC) in connection with (a) your accessing, and using, the Resources, or (b) your failing to perform any obligation pursuant to these terms.

10. Severability

Whenever possible, each provision of these terms shall be interpreted to be effective and valid under applicable law.  If, however, any such provision shall be prohibited by or invalid under such law, it shall be deemed modified to conform to the minimum requirements of such law, or if for any reason it is not so modified, it shall be prohibited or invalid only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without the remainder of such provision, or any other provision of these terms, being prohibited or invalid.

11. Revisions

These terms may only be revised (a) in a writing signed by you and NITTEC and (b) unilaterally by NITTEC from time to time by posting the revised terms on the Site, with the revised terms taking effect immediately upon such posting.  It is your responsibility to periodically check these terms on the Site for revisions.  Your use of the Resources following the posting of any revisions to these terms on the Site will be deemed an irrevocable acceptance by you of such revisions.
