2. Limitations on Your Use of Properties.
The rights granted to you in the Terms and Conditions are subject to the following restrictions: (a) you may not attempt, or authorize, encourage, or support others’ attempts, to circumvent, reverse engineer, decrypt, break or otherwise alter or interfere with the Properties; (b) you may not copy, distribute, sell, resell, or exploit for any commercial purposes any portion of the Properties, or any products accessible through the Services; (c) you shall not use any manual or automated software, devices or other processes, including, without limitation, spiders, robots, scrapers, data mining tools, and the like, to “scape” or download data from any web pages contained in the Website; (d) you shall not access the Properties to build a competing or similar website, application or service; (e) except as expressly stated herein, no part of the Properties may be copied, reproduced, distributed, republished, downloaded, displayed, posted or transmitted in any form or by any means; and (f) you shall not access or use the Properties in any way that violates applicable law.

YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT USE OF THE PROPERTIES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE PROPERTIES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. BBQ HOLDINGS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. BBQ HOLDINGS MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE PROPERTIES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THE PROPERTIES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR FREE.

5. Limitation of Liability.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL BBQ HOLDINGS OR ANY OF ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, FRANCHISEES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE PROPERTIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE TERMS OF THIS PARAGRAPH REFLECT THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THAT THE PARTIES WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF BBQ HOLDINGS TO YOU FOR ALL CLAIMS ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE PROPERTIES, EXCEED TO ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100).
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of our liability shall be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.
