    MERCENT DOES NOT WARRANT TO YOU THAT THE SERVICE WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE OR THAT IT IS FREE OF COMPUTER VIRUSES AND/OR OTHER HARMFUL MATERIALS. IF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR SERVICING OR REPLACING EQUIPMENT OR DATA, MERCENT WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CORRESPONDING COSTS. MERCENT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES TO YOU, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, AND FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SERVICE IS TO STOP USING THE SERVICE. THIS LIMITATION OF RELIEF IS PART OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN MERCENT AND YOU.
  13. Limitation of Liability. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER MERCENT NOR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, LICENSORS, CONTENT PROVIDERS, SUPPLIERS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL AND EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, ARISING FROM THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICE OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, SERVICES, SOFTWARE OR OTHER PRODUCTS PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICE, EVEN IF MERCENT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some U.S. states and foreign countries do not permit the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or liability for certain categories of damages. Therefore, some or all of the limitations above may not apply to you to the extent they are prohibited or superseded by state or national provisions.
    If notwithstanding the other provisions of these terms of use, Mercent is found to be liable to you for any damage or loss which arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the Service, except as otherwise required by applicable law, Mercent’s liability shall in no event exceed the greater of the amounts paid by your employer for use of the Service during the six months immediately preceding the incident giving rise to liability or one hundred United States Dollars. This limitation is cumulative and will not be increased by the existence of more than one incident or claims. 
  14. Monitoring. Mercent has no obligation to monitor use of the Service or retain the content of any user session. However, Mercent reserves the right at all times and without notice to delete any content and to monitor, review, retain and/or disclose any information in Mercent’s possession, however obtained, about or related to you, your use of the Service or otherwise as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request. Mercent will not be responsible for any failure or delay in removing information on or in the Service.
  15. Consent to Internet Based Services. The Service uses Internet protocols that send your User ID to verify your identity, and other data you enter during your use of the Service. These protocols are to ensure that you are a properly licensed user of the Service. The Service also contains an update feature that can obtain appropriate updates and related information and install them on your computer. When this occurs these features send to Mercent the type of operating system, version of the Software you are using and type of browser you are using. This feature is to ensure that you are receiving updated information as appropriate to maximize your experience with the Service. We may sometimes use this information, in an aggregated non-personal form, to assist us in updating and modifying, or to provide reports or information about, our products and services.
  16. Trademarks. All of the trademarks, logos, and service marks and other credits appearing on the Service (the “Trademarks”) are the registered and unregistered trademarks of Mercent and third parties, and are protected under the laws of the United States and other countries. Without the prior written permission of the trademark owner, you may not use or display the Trademarks in any manner. Use in connection with the Service of the Trademark(s) of any other party is not intended to imply Mercent's affiliation with or endorsement of that party, or that party's sponsorship or endorsement of Mercent, its products or services. 
  17. Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement shall be interpreted, construed and governed by the laws of the State of Washington, USA, without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law and not including the provisions. Venue for all disputes arising under this Agreement shall lie exclusively in the Superior Courts of the State of Washington in King County or the Federal District Courts of the Western District of Washington (as permitted by law). You waive any objection to such venue and jurisdiction. Any claim under these Terms of Use must be brought within one year after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. 
  18. Miscellaneous. If any of the provisions of these Terms of Use are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms of Use, so that these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between Mercent and you with regard to your use of the Site, and any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings previously existing between you and Mercent with respect to such use are hereby superseded and cancelled. Mercent’s failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of these Terms of Use shall not be construed as a waiver by Mercent of any provision or any right it has to enforce these Terms of Use, nor shall any course of conduct between Mercent and you or any other party be deemed to modify an provision of these Terms of Use.
