VII. DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE MKP PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUR OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITES, OR THE BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER AS A BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORTIOUS BEHAVIOR, NEGLIGENCE OR ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY APPLIES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TO ANY INJURY OR DAMAGE RESULTING FROM ANY MISTAKES, INTERRUPTION, OMISSION, DELETION OR OTHER DATA LOSS, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, COMPUTER VIRUS, FILE CORRUPTION, NETWORK OR SYSTEM OUTAGE, COMMUNICATION-LINE FAILURE, OR THEFT, DESTRUCTION, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, OR USE OF ANY RECORD.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. In such states or jurisdictions the MKP Parties’ liability is limited to the extent permitted by law, thereby minimizing the MKP Parties’ liability to you to the lowest amount permitted by applicable law.
