CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
If we decide to make a material change to these Terms, we will post a notice of those changes on our site prior to implementing that change.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT WILL CTI BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSSES FROM BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR FROM LOST PROFITS OR DATA, LOST SAVINGS ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THIS SITE, SERVICES, OR SOFTWARE, EVEN IF SPECIFICALLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIMS BY ANY OTHER PARTY. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF CTI FOR DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO CTI FOR THE SERVICES OR SOFTWARE CAUSING THE CLAIM, IF THE LIABILITY RESULTS THEREFROM.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may have others which may vary from state to state, region or country. Some states, regions or countries do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, or the limitation of how long an implied warranty lasts, so some of the above may not apply to you.
You agree to indemnify CTI for any third party claims, losses, liability, damages, and costs (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from your violation of these Terms.
SEVERABILITY – WAVER
If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any part of these Terms to be unenforceable for any reason, all other provisions will remain unaffected and CTI and you agree to replace any invalid provision with a valid provision which most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the invalid provision. No waiver of any breach of these Terms shall constitute a waiver of any other breach of the same or any other provisions, and no waiver is effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
We may require you to register before you use or access the site, Services, or Software by providing us complete and accurate information requested on the registration form. You may also be asked to provide a user name and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You may not use the account, username, or password of someone else at any time. You agree to notify us immediately on any unauthorized use of your account, user name, or password. We shall not be liable for any loss that you incur as a result of someone else using your password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by us.
We respect others’ intellectual property rights, and we insist our users do the same. If you believe that posted content or Submissions infringe your rights under copyright law in specific materials (collectively, a “Work”), please follow the procedure described below to notify us of your concerns or objections.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) gives recourse to copyright owners who believe material on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you have a good faith belief that content or material on the site infringes your copyright, you or your agent may send us a notice requesting that such material be removed or that or access to it be blocked (the “Notice”). The Notice must contain the following information: (i) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner; (ii) a description of the copyrighted Work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed; (iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the site; (iv) your address, telephone number, and email address; (v) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.
If you believe in good faith that a Notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed by us against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See www.loc.gov/copyright for details. You may wish to consult your legal adviser before filing a Notice or counter-notice. Please note there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
Any Notice or counter-notices must be sent to us at:
Chesapeake Technology, Inc. Legal Department, [email protected]
By accessing this site, Services, or Software, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, TO COMPLETE ANY REGISTRATION WITH US, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO VERIFY YOUR CONSENT TO THESE TERMS.
