Warranty disclaimer
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the site and the materials it contains are provided on an “as is, as available” basis without warranties of any kind. To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, VASCO disclaims all warranties, conditions, terms, representations and undertakings, express or implied, whether arising by law, custom, prior oral or written statements by VASCO, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, satisfactory quality, non-infringement, and implied warranties arising from course of dealing or course of performance. VASCO does not warrant that the site or the server that makes it available is free of viruses or other harmful components. You (and not VASCO) assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair, or correction.

VASCO makes no representations or warranties regarding (1) the currency, correctness, completeness, reliability, suitability, availability, or operation of the site and the materials; (2) your use of the site or materials; or (3) any third-party products and services you may obtain or any third-party web site you may access through the site. The mandatory law of some jurisdictions does not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain warranties, conditions, terms, representations or undertakings, so the above exclusions are provided to the extent permitted by law and some may not apply to you.

Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will VASCO, its suppliers, or licensors, their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and affiliates and each of them be liable for any direct, indirect, special, consequential, incidental, or punitive damages, lost profits, revenue, interest or business, whether foreseeable or unforeseeable, arising out of or related to your or any third party’s claims (including, but not limited to, reliance on or the use of, delay in being able to use, or inability to use, the site, the materials it provides, or any other hyperlinked web site or any third-party products or services) regardless of legal theory, even if VASCO has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The mandatory law of some jurisdictions does not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential or other damages in certain circumstances, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will the aggregate liability which VASCO, its suppliers, and its licensors, their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and affiliates and each of them may incur for all damages, losses and causes of action exceed us $100. This liability cap will apply only when and to the extent that applicable law requires liability despite the exclusion and limitation in the prior paragraph.

Indemnity
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless VASCO, its suppliers and licensors, their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and affiliates, and each of them from any third-party claim, liability, loss, damage, cost, or expense (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to your use of the Site or any Materials it contains; your failure to comply with these Terms of Use; your infringement, violation, or misappropriation of any third party rights or any applicable law or regulation.

General
VASCO’s performance of these Terms of Use is subject to existing applicable laws and legal process, and nothing contained in these Terms of Use shall derogate VASCO’s right to comply with law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Site or information provided to or gathered by VASCO with respect to such use.  We may provide notices to you via postings on the Site, via email or via any other means of communication for which you have provided contact information.  If any provision of these Terms of Use shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.  No waiver of any provision of these Terms of Use by VASCO shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and VASCO’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter herein, and replace all prior or contemporaneous communications, oral or written.
