YOUR USE OF THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE AND CONTENT IS ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK. THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE AND CONTENT ARE FURNISHED TO YOU "AS IS" AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, OF ANY KIND, AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. PICDISH, AND ITS PARENTS, AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, LICENSORS, AGENTS, BUSINESS PARTNERS, AND THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND ITS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, OR ASSIGNS (COLLECTIVELY, THE "Picdish Parties"): (A) EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; (B) DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE OR CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THEY WILL BE UPDATED, OR THAT THEIR OPERATION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, WILL MEET ANY MINIMUM SERVICE LEVEL OR STANDARD OF OPERATION, OR THAT ANY DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED; AND (C) DO NOT WARRANT OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR CONDITIONS REGARDING THE USE OF THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE AND CONTENT, OR THE RESULTS OF THE USE OF THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE OR CONTENT.

YOUR SOLE REMEDY AGAINST PICDISH FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE OR CONTENT IS TO STOP USING THEM. THIS LIMITATION OF REMEDIES IS A PART OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND PICDISH. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY PICDISH OR ANY PERSON ON BEHALF OF PICDISH SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR CONDITION, OR IN ANY WAY CHANGE THIS EXCLUSION OF WARRANTY AND CONDITION.
Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion and/or limitation of implied warranties or conditions, or allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. In such event, Picdish's warranties and conditions with respect to the Picdish Services, Picdish Software and Content will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law in such jurisdiction.
21. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
IN NO EVENT WILL THE PICDISH PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU, OR ANY THIRD PARTY, FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, RELIANCE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, COMPENSATION, REIMBURSEMENT OR DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH, ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATING TO, THE USE, OR LOSS OF USE OF, THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE OR CONTENT, OR THE USE OF THE RESULTS OF THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE OR CONTENT, LOSS OF PROFITS, OR OTHER LOSS, OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON OF ANY KIND, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY), EVEN IF THE PICDISH PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
THE PICDISH PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR DAMAGES FOR BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION, BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY RELATED TO THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE OR CONTENT. IF, NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, A PICDISH PARTY IS FOUND TO BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS WHICH ARISES UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, THE PICDISH SERVICES, PICDISH SOFTWARE OR CONTENT, THE PICDISH PARTY'S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO YOU SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE GREATER OF: (A) ONE HUNDRED US DOLLARS (US$100.00); AND (B) THE AMOUNT OF FEES, IF ANY, PAID BY YOU TO PICDISH DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE PICDISH PARTY'S LIABILITY.
Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, special, consequential, or other damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. In such event, the Picdish Parties' liability for such damages with respect to the Picdish Services, Picdish Software and Content will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law in such jurisdiction.
22. Release. To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release the Picdish Parties from and against any and all demands, claims, actions, suits, or proceedings, as well as any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses of any kind that arise from, out of, in connection with, or are incident to, whether directly or indirectly, your use of the Picdish Services, Picdish Software or Content.
