Limitation of Liability

YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE; (C) THE SERVICE GENERALLY OR THE SOFTWARE OR SYSTEMS THAT MAKE THE SERVICE AVAILABLE; (D) ANY OTHER INTERACTIONS WITH ISEE OR ANY OTHER USER OF THE

OR JURISDICTIONS LIMIT OR DO NOT PERMIT DISCLAIMERS OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT
PERMITTED BY LAW.
If you have a dispute with one or more users of the Service, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and employees) from claims, demands, and damages
(actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connect with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil
Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known
by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless ISEE, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns, and

Terms of Service, or applicable law, by you or by someone accessing the Site via your account. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any
matter subject to indemnification by you, in which event you agree to cooperate with us in defending such claims. This indemnification, defense, and hold harmless obligation will survive
these Terms of Service and the termination of your use of the Site.
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted
by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service; such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other
The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.
These Terms of Service are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to
use our Services, or when you cease using our Site.
If, in our sole judgment, you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Service, we also may terminate this agreement at any time
without notice, and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly we may deny you access to our Services (or any part thereof).
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this Site or in respect to the Service constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us, and govern
your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications, and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including but not limited to any prior
versions of the Terms of Service).
Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the drafting party.
These Terms of Service and any separate agreements whereby we provide you Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Hampshire.
