Limitation of Liability and Damages
- Limitation of Liability. There are inherent risks in relying upon, using, or retrieving any information found on the internet, and we urge you to make sure you understand these risks before using the PsyberGuide website or the PsyberGuide resources. Your use of the PsyberGuide website or the PsyberGuide resources is at your own risk. You agree that, to the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, under no circumstances, and under no legal theory, including negligence, shall OM or its directors, officers, affiliates, representatives, contractors, employees, agents, or third party partners or suppliers, be liable for any damages, including any special, indirect, incidental, consequential, or exemplary damages (including loss of profits, data or use or cost of cover) arising out of or relating to these terms or that result from your use of or the inability to use the PsyberGuide website, the PsyberGuide materials or other content or information contained on the PsyberGuide website or any third party sites (including any summarized content), any products or services mentioned in the PsyberGuide website, or any other interactions with om, however caused, even if OM or a OM authorized representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages. You acknowledge that the royalty-free basis for receiving the PsyberGuide resources reflects this allocation of risk.

In such cases, om’s liability will be limited to the extent permitted by law.
- Limitation of Damages. In no event shall OM or its affiliates, contractors, employees, agents, or third party partners, licensors or suppliers’ total liability to you for all damages, losses, and causes of action arising out of or relating to these terms or your use of or the inability to use the PsyberGuide website, the PsyberGuide resources, the PsyberGuide materials or other content on the PsyberGuide website or any third party sites, including any summarized content, (whether in contract, tort (including negligence), warranty, or otherwise) exceed one hundred u.s. dollars.

Limitations by Applicable Law; Basis of the Bargain.
Certain jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If you reside in such a jurisdiction, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you, and you may have additional rights. The limitations or exclusions of warranties, remedies or liability contained in these terms apply to you to the fullest extent such limitations or exclusions are permitted under the laws of the jurisdiction in which you are located.
International Access and Export Controls.
The PsyberGuide Website is controlled and offered by OM from its facilities in the United States of America.

- No Waiver. A provision of these Terms may be waived only by a written instrument executed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision. The failure of OM to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
- Severability. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
