4.      Links to Other Sites

Members should be aware that when they are using the SportsClimb web site, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from our pages that take you outside our service, including those provided by our advertisers or other members. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement, the "click" may take you off our site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and business partners that may use our logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to visitors, collect data, or solicit personal information. We are not responsible for the privacy of personal information furnished by you to these advertisers. Visitors to our site who provide personal information to these other sites are advised to check the privacy policies of those sites.

You understand and agree that although we will use reasonable efforts to ensure the web site is available to its members, temporary interruptions of the services available through this web site may occur. The services available on this site are provided "AS IS" and SportsClimb is not liable to you for any temporary interruption in services.


5.      Repeat Infringers

Your account will be terminated if, at SportsClimb's sole discretion, you are determined to be a repeat infringer. Repeat infringers are users who have been the subject of more than one valid takedown request that has not been successfully rebutted.


6.      Disclaimer of Warranties

All services on this site are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or the warranty of non-infringement.

Without limiting the foregoing, we make no warranty that (a) the services will meet your requirements, (b) the services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free, (c) the results that may be obtained from the use of the services will be effective, accurate or reliable, or (d) the quality of any materials or services obtained by you from the site, from us, or from any third parties' web sites to which the web site is linked, will meet your expectations or be free from mistakes, errors or defects.

The use of SportsClimb services is done at your own risk and with your agreement that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from such activities.

Other than as expressly set forth in the paragraph hereunder entitled "limited warranty for products," SportsClimb expressly disclaims and provides no other warranties for products, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or the warranty of non-infringement.

Any warranty that is provided in connection with any products, services, materials, or information available on or through this site from a third party is provided solely by such third party, and not by us.

Some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, so some of the above limitations may not apply to you.


7.      Limitation of Liability

You expressly understand and agree that SportsClimb and its partners shall not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if SportsClimb or its partners have been advised of the possibility of such damages) resulting from: (i) the use or the inability to use SportsClimb services; (ii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through or from SportsClimb services; (iii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (iv) statements or conduct of any third party on SportsClimb services; or (v) any other matter relating to SportsClimb services.


8.      Exclusions and limitations

Nothing in this agreement is intended to exclude or limit any condition, warranty, right or liability which may not be lawfully excluded or limited. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or conditions or the limitation or exclusion of liability for loss or damage caused by negligence, breach of contract or breach of implied terms, or incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, only the above limitations in sections 6 and 7 which are lawful in your jurisdiction will apply to you and our liability will be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
