Disclaimer of Warranties

The APP is provided "as is" and with all faults and defects without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, Utah Valley University, on its own behalf and on behalf of its licensors and service providers, expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory, or otherwise, with respect to the APP, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing, course of performance, usage, or trade practice. Without limitation to the foregoing, Utah Valley University provides no warranty or undertaking, and makes no representation of any kind that the APP will meet your requirements, achieve any intended results, be compatible, or work with any other software, applications, systems, or services, operate without interruption, meet any performance or reliability standards, or be error-free, or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.

A pre-release version of the APP is believed to contain defects. Utah Valley University makes pre-release versions available for the primary purposes of obtaining feedback on software performance and the identification of defects. You are advised to safeguard important data, to use caution and not to rely in any way on the correct functioning or performance of a pre-release version or its accompanying materials.

Limitation of Liability

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will UVU or its affiliates, or any of its or their respective licensors or service providers, have any liability arising from or related to your use of or inability to use the APP or the content and services for:

Personal injury, property damage, lost profits, cost of substitute goods or services, loss of data, loss of goodwill, business interruption, computer failure or malfunction, or any other consequential, incidental, indirect, exemplary, special, or punitive damages;

Any other loss or damage which may be incurred by you, including but not limited to loss or damage as a result of: (i) Any changes that UVU may make to the APP, content and services, or website (the “offerings”), or for any permanent or temporary cessation in the provision of the offerings (or any features within the offerings); (ii) The deletion of, corruption of, or failure to store, any content and other communications data maintained or transmitted by or through your use of the offerings; (iii) Your failure to provide UVU with accurate account information; or, (iv) Your failure to keep your password or account details secure and confidential.

The Foregoing limitations will apply whether such damages arise out of breach of contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise and regardless of whether such damages were foreseeable or UVU was advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow certain limitations of liability so some or all of the above limitations of liability may not apply to you.

Export Regulation

The App may be subject to US export control laws, including the Export Control Reform Act and its associated regulations.

If any provision of this Agreement is illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, the remainder of the provision will be amended to achieve as closely as possible the effect of the original term and all other provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect; provided, however, that if any fundamental term or provision of this Agreement, is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall be unenforceable.
