Monitoring & Enforcement

While we have the right to monitor activity and content associated with the 40HRS Service, we are not obligated to do so. And since we do not and may not have the ability to control or actively monitor content, we don't guarantee its accuracy, integrity, or quality. Because community standards vary and individuals sometimes choose not to comply with our policies and practices, in the process of using our website, you may be exposed to content that you find offensive or objectionable. You can contact our Customer Success Department to let us know of content you find objectionable. We may investigate the complaints and violations of our policies that come to our attention and may take any action that we believe is appropriate, including, but not limited to, issuing warnings or removing the content. However, because situations and interpretations vary, we also reserve the right not to take any action. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, access to, or denial of access to any content on the website.


Internet Delays

40HRS’s services may be subject to limitations, delays, and other problems inherent in the use of the internet and electronic communications. 40HRS is not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or other damage resulting from such problems.


Indemnification

By accepting this User Agreement, you agree to indemnify and otherwise hold harmless 40HRS Company, its officers, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and other partners from any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages resulting from i) your use of the 40HRS Service, ii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your communications with or through the 40HRS Service, or iii) any other matter relating to the 40HRS Service. Any business transactions which may arise between users from their use of 40HRS are the sole responsibility of the users involved.


Without limitation of the terms and conditions, you understand and agree that 40HRS may disclose personally identifiable information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, enforce this User Agreement, or protect the rights, property, or safety of 40HRS, its users, and the public.


Limitation Of Liability

You expressly understand and agree that 40HRS shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (even if 40HRS has been advised of the possibility of such damages). Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you. In no event shall either party’s aggregate liability exceed the amounts actually paid by and/or due from you in the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the event giving rise to such claim.
