6. Trademarks

Rakefire LLC. owns all right, title and interest, including all related Intellectual Property Rights in and to Aqility Inc.’s Technology, the Content, and the Service and any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by You. This Agreement is a license and not a sale therefore it does not convey to You any rights of ownership in or to the Service, Rakefire LLC.’s Technology, or the Intellectual Property Rights owned by Rakefire LLC. and the product names associated with the Service are trademarks of Rakefire LLC. or third parties, and no rights or license to use them are granted to You.

7. Revocation of Consent

Where Rakefire LLC. has given prior written consent for your use of our protected material in accordance with our above "Copyright" and "Trademarks" provisions, we may revoke that consent at any time. If we so request, we may require that you immediately take action to remove from circulation, display, publication, or other dissemination, any of the marks, copyrighted content, or other materials that we previously consented for you to use.

8. Communications Decency Act

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act protects us from liability for a number of classes of third party speech published through our website for which we might otherwise be liable at common law in your state, or otherwise liable for in your jurisdiction. Specifically, the most common use of the Communications Decency Act is as a defense to defamation by third parties who may use a website owner's website to defame another party.

The Communications Decency Act protects us from civil actions over such defamation and, by virtue of the SPEECH Act 2010, it is not possible to circumvent the Communications Decency Act by filing suit in a foreign jurisdiction and attempting to domesticate the judgment in the United States - such a judgment will be unenforceable in the United States.

9. Representations & Warranties

WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OF OUR SERVICE OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE RELEASING US FROM ANY LIABILITY THAT WE MAY OTHERWISE HAVE TO YOU IN RELATION TO OR ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT OR OUR SERVICES, FOR REASONS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FAILURE OF OUR SERVICE, NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER TORT. TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLICABLE LAW RESTRICTS THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY, YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE ONLY LIABLE TO YOU FOR THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF DAMAGES THAT THE LAW RESTRICTS OUR LIABILITY TO, IF SUCH A MINIMUM EXISTS.

YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY THIRD PARTIES WHO MAY USE OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PEOPLE WHO COMMIT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT, DEFAMATION, TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE WITH ECONOMIC RELATIONS, OR ANY OTHER ACTIONABLE CONDUCT TOWARDS YOU. NEITHER WE NOR THE THIRD PARTIES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE ON THE PART OF A PAYMENT PROCESSOR TO DIRECT PAYMENTS TO US OR THAT THIRD PARTY. IN SUCH CASES WHERE AN ENTITY, NOT LIMITED TO OURSELVES, HAS NOT RECEIVED YOUR FUNDS OR A NOTIFICATION THAT YOUR FUNDS HAVE BEEN TRANSMITTED, YOU MUST RESOLVE THE ISSUE DIRECTLY WITH THE RELEVANT PAYMENT PROCESSOR.

WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY FAILURE OF THE GOODS OR SERVICES OF OUR COMPANY OR A THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING ANY FAILURES OR DISRUPTIONS, UNTIMELY DELIVERY, SCHEDULED OR UNSCHEDULED, INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL, ON OUR WEBSITE WHICH PREVENT ACCESS TO OUR WEBSITE TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY.

THE PROVISION OF OUR SERVICE TO YOU IS CONTINGENT ON YOUR AGREEMENT WITH THIS AND ALL OTHER SECTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. NOTHING IN THE PROVISIONS OF THIS "REPRESENTATIONS & WARRANTIES" SECTION SHALL BE CONSTRUED TO LIMIT THE GENERALITY OF THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THIS SECTION.

IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES A SPECIFIC STATEMENT REGARDING RELEASE THEN THE FOLLOWING APPLIES. FOR EXAMPLE, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST, AS A CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WAIVE THE APPLICABILITY OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR." YOU HEREBY WAIVE THIS SECTION OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY SIMILAR PROVISION IN LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE THAT HAS THE SAME INTENT OR EFFECT AS THE AFOREMENTIONED RELEASE.
