To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall the Company or its suppliers be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, loss of data or other information, for business interruption, for personal injury, loss of privacy arising out of or in any way related to the use of or inability to use the Service, third-party software and/or third-party hardware used with the Service, or otherwise in connection with any provision of this Terms), even if the Company or any supplier has been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if the remedy fails of its essential purpose.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply. In these jurisdictions, each party’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.

10 “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” Disclaimer

The Service is provided to You “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” and with all faults and defects without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, the Company expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to the Service, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing, course of performance, usage or trade practice.

Without limiting the foregoing, neither the Company nor any of the company’s providers makes any representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied:

  1. that the Service will meet Your requirements.
  2. that the Service will achieve any intended results.
  3. that the Service be compatible or work with any other software, applications, systems or services.
  4. that the Service meets any performance or reliability standards, operates without interruption, is error-free or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.

We are not liable for damages, direct or consequential, resulting from Your use of the Website, and You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Us harmless from any claims, losses, liability costs and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from Your violation of any third-party’s rights. You acknowledge that You have only a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Website. Because the Website is not error or bug free, You agree that you will use it carefully and avoid using it ways which might result in any loss of Your or any third party’s property or information.

You acknowledge that some of the content may be supplied by third parties and the accuracy and completeness of it will not have been checked by the Company. No liability shall be accepted by the Company for any inaccuracy or omission in the information provided on the Service or World ParaVolley Materials.  All implied warranties are excluded from these Terms and Conditions to the extent that they may be excluded as a matter of law.

The Website may contain links to third-party websites where You may purchase items. You acknowledge that when making a purchase from a third-party website You enter into a contract with that third-party at Your own risk and the Company will bear no liability for that contract.  Please note that THIRD PARTIES may operate such shopping sites with reference to the name of the Website, but that does not mean that the Company is responsible for their conduct or any contracts that You enter with them.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain types of warranties or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so some or all of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to You. But in such a case the exclusions and limitations set forth in this section shall be applied to the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law.

11 Governing Law

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding Our Service and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Service.
