So long as you comply with your obligations under this Agreement, you may indicate that a product or service that you created either used or is based on Junction API provided that those products or services do not in Junction's reasonable opinion (1) tarnish, infringe, or dilute Junction's trademarks, (2) violate any applicable law, and (3) infringe any third-party rights. If you wish to use the Junction trademark and/or logo in any other manner, you must first obtain Junction's written consent.
Disclaimer of warranties
The Junction API service is currently in beta form and has not been fully tested or debugged. Accordingly, Junction disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of Junction API.
The Junction API service is provided "as is," with no warranties whatsoever. Junction expressly disclaims to the fullest extent permitted by law all express, implied, and statutory warranties, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement of proprietary rights. Junction disclaims any warranties regarding the security, reliability, timeliness, availability, and performance of Junction API.
You understand and agree that you use Junction API at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damages to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download or use of Junction API.
Some states or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. You may also have other rights that vary from state to state and jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Limitation of liability
The Junction API service is being provided free of charge. Accordingly, you agree that Junction shall have no liability arising from or based on your use of Junction API.
Under no circumstances shall Junction be liable to any user on account of that user's use or misuse of Junction API. Such limitation of liability shall apply to prevent recovery of direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, and punitive damages whether such claim is based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, even if Junction has been advised of the possibility of such damages). Such limitation of liability shall apply whether the damages arise from use or misuse of and reliance on the Junction API, from inability to use Junction API APIs, or from the interruption, suspension, or termination of Junction API APIs (including such damages incurred by third parties). Such limitation shall apply notwithstanding a failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy and to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Some states or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you.
You hereby agree to indemnify, defend and hold Junction, and its officers, directors, agents, licensors and licensees (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") harmless from and against any and all liability and costs incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim arising out of your use of Junction API, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees.
