VI. Limitation on Liability

A. The warranties are being provided only to the original Licensee; no warranties of any kind are provided to any end-users.

B. The warranties do not cover damage or defects caused by or related to misuse, accident, negligence or misapplication.

Furthermore, Screen Porch does not warrant that the Software will work with any given Operating System, network, or network application.

C. Screen Porch hereby warns Licensee that due to the complexity of the Software, it is possible that use of the Software unintentionally could lead to the loss or corruption of data. Licensee assumes all risk for such data loss or corruption; the warranties provided hereunder do not cover any damage or losses resulting therefrom.

D. IN NO CASE SHALL SCREEN PORCH BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR LOSS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS OR THE INABILITY TO USE EQUIPMENT OR ACCESS DATA, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED UPON A BREACH OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. THIS IS TRUE EVEN IF SCREEN PORCH IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO CASE WILL SCREEN PORCH'S LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE LICENSE FEE ACTUALLY PAID BY LICENSEE TO SCREEN PORCH.

E. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES SO THIS LANGUAGE MAY NOT APPLY. IN SUCH CASE, SCREEN PORCH'S LIABILITIES WILL BE LIMITED BY THE ABOVE LIMITATION OF REMEDIES PROVISION.

B. Licensee agrees that because of the unique nature of the Software, irreparable harm will be caused by a breach by the Licensee of its obligations hereunder, that monetary damages will be inadequate to compensate for such harm, and that Screen Porch is entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. Screen Porch's right to obtain injunctive relief shall not limit its right to seek further remedies.

C. Licensee shall take all steps necessary to preserve and protect the proprietary and confidential nature of Screen Porch's Software in connection with any proposal, bid or contract between Licensee and any part of any foreign, federal, state or local government, including without limitation the use of effective copyright and trade secret notifications and "restricted rights" or "limited rights" legends on any Licensed Works licensed or sold or other material submitted by Licensee in connection with any such proposal, bid, or contract.
