BIS does not make any express or implied warranties about the software, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. The software is made available to you "as is" and "as available" and BIS does not warrant that any defects or inaccuracies will be corrected. BIS does not warrant that the software will meet your needs, or that your use will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free. BIS also makes no warranty that the results obtained from the use of the software will be accurate or reliable, or that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material related to the software will meet your expectations. No oral or written information or advice given by BIS or its authorised representative shall create a warranty. BIS and its third-party content providers, third party licensors and any affiliates thereof do not make any express or implied warranties regarding the accuracy or timeliness of any and all information provided via the software. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so the above exclusion and limitations may not apply to you.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:
To the extent permissible by law, in no event shall BIS, any third party content provider, any third party licensor or any affiliates thereof be liable for personal injury, or any incidental, special, indirect or consequential damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of data, business interruption or any other commercial damages or losses ("losses"), arising out of or related to your use or inability to use the software, however caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, tort or otherwise) and even if BIS, any third party content provider, any third party licensor or any affiliates thereof have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation of liability for personal injury, or of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation may not apply to you. Use of any third-party software will be governed by the applicable licence agreement, if any, with such third party. BIS is not responsible for any third-party software and will have no liability of any kind for losses resulting from your use of such third-party software with BIS 's software.
