9. Limitation of Liability
In respect of the Services, if we believe that there is a violation of the Subscription Agreement, these User Terms, or any of our other policies that can be remedied by Customer’s removal of certain Customer Data or taking other action, we will, in most cases, ask the Customer to take action rather than intervene. We may directly step in and take what we determine to be appropriate action (including disabling your account) if the Customer does not take appropriate action or we believe there is a credible risk of harm to us, the Service or any third parties.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE, OUR AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO ANY PERSON UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CONTRACT (INCLUDING FUNDAMENTAL BREACH), TORT (INCLUDING BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY), BREACH OF STATUTORY DUTY OR OTHERWISE, FOR THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF LOSS OR DAMAGES UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE USER TERMS, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED AS TO THE POSSIBILITY OF, OR COULD HAVE FORESEEN, SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES IN ADVANCE: (A) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; AND (B) WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT, LOSS OF REVENUE, INCOME, PROFIT, SAVINGS OR SHARE VALUE, LOST OR CORRUPTED DATA OR SOFTWARE, LOSS OF USE OF SYSTEMS, PROGRAMS, NETWORKS OR HARDWARE (OR THE RECOVERY OF SUCH) OR LOSS OF GOODWILL.

11. Communications and Security
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as secure. Although we strive to protect such information, we do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information which you transmit to us or via the Services. Accordingly, any information which you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk. Nevertheless, once we receive your transmission, we will take commercially reasonable steps to preserve the security of such information.

Our failure to enforce at any time any provision of these User Terms does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of these User Terms.
