THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS. YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS, WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

YOUR USE OF AIRSTACK DOES NOT, IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER, EXTEND ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES THAT APPLY TO STONEWARE PRODUCTS.

By using AirStack, you agree that, to the extent permitted by law, we will have no liability for any special, indirect, or consequential damages that you may sustain from your use of AirStack, whether due to loss of data or profits, negligence, breach of contract, or otherwise.  The total aggregate liability of Stoneware, its affiliates and suppliers shall be limited to the amounts paid or payable by you to Stoneware for use of AirStack under this Agreement in the six (6) month period prior to the date when the cause of action arose.  This limitation applies under contract, tort, strict liability, or any other legal theory.

To the extent permitted by law, you assume all risks concerning the suitability and accuracy of the information that you send or receive using AirStack. AirStack may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. We assume no responsibility for any such inaccuracies, errors, or omissions associated with AirStack.

AirStack does not guarantee or monitor your health, safety, or security. We make no claim that AirStack will work effectively in case of an emergency.

AirStack is not fault-tolerant and is not designed, manufactured or intended for use in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance where a failure of AirStack could lead directly or indirectly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage (“High Risk Activities”). You agree that we will not be responsible for any injury, environmental damage, or property damage arising out of your use of AirStack in High Risk Activities.

Stoneware will not be responsible for the actions of any individual or any accident that results while using or attempting to use AirStack. FAILURE OF AIRSTACK DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HOLD STONEWARE OR ITS AFFILIATES LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES. YOU AND YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONSEQUENCES OF USING AIRSTACK.

  1. Indemnity. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Stoneware and its affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders, partners, and employees from any third party claim or demand (including but not limited to damages, litigation costs, and reasonable attorney’s fees) that relates to your use of AirStack or your violation of this Agreement. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any dispute in which you must indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate with our defense and settlement of these claims. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such disputes once we become aware of them.
  2. Term and Termination. You may use AirStack so long as you do not violate these Terms of Service or any applicable law. We reserve the right to: (1) limit or terminate your use of AirStack at any time if we determine in good faith concern that such use a) violates an applicable law or these Terms of Service; or b) may subject Stoneware and its affiliates to liability; and (2) inform law enforcement of any illegal activity or material relating to use of AirStack and provide law enforcement officials with all requested information we may have, including but not limited to the name, phone number, and email addresses of any user account suspected of illegal activity.

  1. General information. This Agreement supersedes any prior agreements between you and Stoneware relating to your use of AirStack with respect to its Software as a Services application. Any prior purchase you or your organization may have previously made of any other Stoneware product, including, but not limited to any on-premises product or products, in no way includes or entitles you to use AirStack.

By using AirStack, you agree that the statutes and laws of the State of Indiana, without regard to any principles of conflicts of law, will apply to all matters relating to your use of AirStack. You also agree that any litigation will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts of Indiana. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of those courts. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement does not waive our right to exercise or enforce our rights in the future.
