NO WARRANTIES
THE SITE AND THE CONTENT ON THE SITE ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE FACE THESE TERMS OF USE. HOSPICELINK MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR ENDORSEMENTS WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO THE SITE OR THE CONTENT. HOSPICELINK SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, WITH REGARD TO THE SITE OR THE CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, HOSPICELINK DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS PERFORMED BY THE SITE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, RELIABLE, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS IN THE SITE WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SITE OR THE TECHNOLOGY THAT MAKES IT AVAILABLE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPUTER CODE.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In no event will Hospicelink be liable for any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to any direct, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary or other indirect damages, including without limitation, loss of profits, loss of anticipated profits, or business interruption, arising out of (i) the use of or inability to use the Site and/or the Content, (ii) any claim attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in the Site and/or the Content, or (iii) any other matter relating to the Site or the Content, even if Hospicelink has been advised of the possibility of such damages or could have foreseen any such damages. If you are dissatisfied with the Site, the Content, or with these Terms of Use, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site.
You agree that, regardless of the failure of the sole and exclusive remedy in these Terms of Use, neither you nor Hospicelink will be liable to the other for any incidental, consequential, special, indirect, punitive or exemplary damages of whatsoever kind or nature. You agree that the exclusion of incidental, consequential, special, indirect, punitive or exemplary damages is intended as an independent agreement apart from the sole and exclusive remedy in these Terms of Use. In no event shall you or Hospicelink be liable for any incidental, consequential, special, indirect, punitive or exemplary damages, including, without limitation, loss of profits, loss of anticipated profits, or business interruption, whether arising under these Terms of Use or otherwise, even if either party has been advised of the possibility of such damages or claim or could have foreseen any such damages.
Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for direct, consequential, incidental or certain other types of damages, some of the above limitations may not apply to you. In such states, Hospicelink’s total liability to you is limited and warranties are excluded to the greatest extent permitted by law, but shall, in no event, exceed $500.00.

You understand and agree that you are personally responsible for your behavior on the Site. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Hospicelink from and against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs, and reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from or arising out of your use, misuse, or inability to use the Site or the Content, or any violation by you of these Terms of Use.
