YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE, OR FREE FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, AND NO INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
8.1. Damages EXCEPT FOR ANY INDEMNIFICATION AND CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) WILL EITHER PARTY TO THESE TERMS, OR THEIR AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER LOSS INCURRED BY SUCH PARTY OR THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF OR COULD HAVE FORESEEN SUCH DAMAGES.
8.2. Third Party Permissions Scrapinghub does not provide You with any license, copyright, or permissions regarding the information accessed through the Services, which may be subject to copyright protection by third parties.

YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF THIS SECTION IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND LIMIT POTENTIAL LIABILITY GIVEN THE SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER IF WE WERE TO ASSUME ANY FURTHER LIABILITY OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH HEREIN. WE HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO PROVIDE YOU THE RIGHTS TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to You. IN THESE JURISDICTIONS, SCRAPINGHUB’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
8.4. Release In the event that You have a dispute with a targeted data source (i.e. website or web application) in relation to the use (or misuse) of any of the Services, you release Scrapinghub and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
8.5. No Director and Officer Liability Any claims or damages that You may have against Scrapinghub shall only be enforceable against Scrapinghub and not any other entity or its officers, directors, representatives or agents.
9.1. Indemnification by Scrapinghub We will indemnify and hold You harmless, from and against any claim against You by reason of Your use of the Service as permitted hereunder, brought by a third party alleging that the Service infringes or misappropriates a third party’s valid patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret (an “IP Claim”). This indemnification provision is limited to IP Claims relating to the Service itself, and does not indemnify You in relation to Your use of the Service or use of any information or data obtained by You through the Service. We shall, at Our expense, defend such covered IP Claims and pay damages finally awarded against You in connection therewith, provided that (a) You promptly notify Scrapinghub of the threat or notice of such IP Claim; (b) We will have the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defense attorneys, defend and/or settle any such IP Claim; and (c) You fully cooperate with Scrapinghub in connection therewith.
The provisions of this Section state the sole, exclusive and entire liability of Scrapinghub to You and constitute Your sole remedy with respect to an IP Claim brought by reason of access to or use of the Service by You or Your Agents.
9.1. Indemnification by You You will indemnify and hold Scrapinghub and its agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees, contractors, and applicable third parties harmless against any claim brought by a third party against Scrapinghub arising from or related to (a) use of the Service by You or Your Agents in breach of these Terms, (b) Your internal and external use of the data and information received from the Services, (c) Your extraction of any third party data, (d) Your use of third party data retrieved through the Service, (e) any negligence or wilful misconduct by You; or (f) matters which You have expressly agreed to be responsible pursuant to these Terms.

We may, without Your consent, assign Our agreement with You to any member of Scrapinghub or in connection with any merger or change of control of Scrapinghub or the sale of all or substantially all of Our assets provided that any such successor agrees to fulfil its obligations pursuant to these Terms.
10.2. Entire Agreement These Terms, together with any Form(s), constitute the entire agreement, and supersede any and all prior agreements between You and Scrapinghub with regard to the subject matter hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, additional terms may apply to certain features, functionality, or services We offer as part of or distinct from the Service (the “Additional Terms”). In those instances, We will notify You of such Additional Terms prior to the activation of these features, functionality, or services and the activation of these features, functionality, or services in Your Account will be considered acceptance of the Additional Terms. All such Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into these Terms when You or any Agent authorized as an administrator in Your Account activate the feature, functionality, or service. Where there is a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control.
10.3. Amendment and Waiver We may amend these Terms from time to time, in which case the new Terms will supersede prior versions. We will notify You not less than ten (10) days prior to the effective date of any such amendment and Your continued use of the Service following the effective date of any such amendment may be relied upon by Scrapinghub as Your consent to any such amendment. Our failure to enforce at any time any provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of the Terms.
10.4. Severability If any provision in these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as to best accomplish the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in effect.
