DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
All materials, information, software, products, and services included in or available through this site (the “content”) are provided “as is” and “as available” for your use. The content is provided without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement.

Under no circumstances shall GAC, its subsidiaries or its licensors be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or inability to use, this site. This limitation applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or any other basis, even if GAC has been advised of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, GAC’s liability in such jurisdictions shall be limited to the extent permitted by law.
Upon a request by GAC, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless GAC and its subsidiary and other affiliated companies, and their employees, contractors, officers and directors from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney’s fees, that arise from your use or misuse of this site.
