3. Ownership and Relationship of Parties.

The FavQs APIs may be protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, international treaties, and/or other proprietary rights and laws of the U.S. and other countries. FavQs's rights apply to the FavQs APIs and all output and executables of the FavQs APIs, excluding any software components developed by you which do not themselves incorporate the FavQs APIs or any output or executables of the FavQs APIs. You agree to abide by all applicable proprietary rights laws and other laws, as well as any additional copyright notices or restrictions contained in these terms. FavQs owns all rights, title, and interest in and to the FavQs APIs. These terms grant you no right, title, or interest in any intellectual property owned or licensed by FavQs, including (but not limited to) the FavQs APIs and FavQs trademarks.


4. Support.

FavQs may elect to provide you with support or modifications for the FavQs APIs (collectively, "Support"), in its sole discretion, and may terminate such Support at any time without notice to you. FavQs may change, suspend, or discontinue any aspect of the FavQs APIs at any time, including the availability of any FavQs APIs. FavQs may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the FavQs APIs or the FavQs Web site without notice or liability.


5. Fees and Payments.

FavQs is committed to free and open access to our APIs for non-commercial purposes. However, providing the APIs does have real costs for FavQs. For uses of FavQs APIs over a certain rate or for certain types of commercial applications, FavQs reserves the right to charge fees for future use of or access to the FavQs APIs.


6. Disclaimer of Any Warranty.

Some of the FavQs APIs may be experimental and not tested in any manner. FavQs does not represent or warrant that any FavQs APIs are free of inaccuracies, errors, bugs, or interruptions, or are reliable, accurate, complete, or otherwise valid.

The FavQs APIs are provided "as is" with no warranty, express or implied, of any kind and FavQs expressly disclaims any and all warranties and conditions, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, availability, security, title and/or non-infringement.

7. Limitation of Liability.

FavQs shall not, under any circumstances, be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising out of or in connection with use of the FavQs APIs, whether based on breach of contract, breach of warranty, tort (including negligence, product liability or otherwise), or any other pecuniary loss, whether or not FavQs has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Under no circumstances shall FavQs be liable to you for any amount.


8. Exclusions and Limitations.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations of sections 6 and 7 may not apply to you.


9. Release and Waiver.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release and waive all claims against FavQs, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, licensors, co-branders or other partners, and employees from any and all liability for claims, damages (actual and/or consequential), costs and expenses (including litigation costs and attorneys' fees) of every kind and nature, arising from or in any way related to your use of the FavQs APIs. If you are a California resident, you waive your rights under California Civil Code 1542, which states, "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 understand that any fact relating to any matter covered by this release may be found to be other than now believed to be true and you accept and assume the risk of such possible differences in fact. In addition, you expressly waive and relinquish any and all rights and benefits which you may have under any other state or federal statute or common law principle of similar effect, to the fullest extent permitted by law.


10. Hold Harmless and Indemnity.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to hold harmless and indemnify FavQs and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, licensors, co-branders or other partners, and employees from and against any third-party claim arising from or in any way related to your use of the FavQs APIs, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and/or consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature. FavQs shall use good faith efforts to provide you with written notice of such claim, suit or action.


11. General Terms.

Relationship of the Parties. Notwithstanding any provision hereof, for all purposes of the API Terms of Use, you and FavQs shall be and act independently and not as partner, joint venturer, agent, employee or employer of the other. You shall not have any authority to assume or create any obligation for or on behalf of FavQs, express or implied, and you shall not attempt to bind FavQs to any contract.

Invalidity of Specific Terms. If any provision of the API Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision and that the other provisions remain in full force and effect.

Location of Lawsuit and Choice of Law. The API Terms of Use and the relationship between you and FavQs shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and FavQs agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of San Mateo, California.

No Waiver of Rights by FavQs. FavQs's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the API Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Miscellaneous. The section headings and subheadings contained in this agreement are included for convenience only, and shall not limit or otherwise affect the terms of the API Terms of Use. Any construction or interpretation to be made of the API Terms of Use shall not be construed against the drafter.
