this Agreement in any respect.
5.2 No Other Warranty. Thrive Business Solutions does not monitor or exercise control
over the content of the information transmitted through its
facilities. Use of the Services or any information that may be
obtained there from is at Client's own risk. The Services are provided
on an "as is" basis, and Client's use of the Services is at its own

Internet services provided or controlled by third parties. At times,
actions or inactions of such third parties may impair or disrupt
Client's connections to the Internet (or portions thereof). Thrive Business Solutions
cannot guarantee that such events will not occur. Accordingly, Thrive Business Solutions
disclaims any and all liability resulting from or related to such
Client agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Thrive Business Solutions and its
affiliates, agents, employees, and licensors (including the third
party service providers) harmless from any and all claim, demand,
loss, costs or expense, including attorneys' fees, made by any person
arising out of Client's violation of this Agreement, State or Federal
Securities laws or regulations, or any other person's rights including
but not limited to infringement of any copyright or violation of any
proprietary or privacy right.
Under no circumstances, including but not limited to a negligent
act, will Thrive Business Solutions or its affiliates, agents, employees, or licensors
(including third party service providers) be liable for any damages of
any kind that result from the use of, or the inability to use,
Services, even if any such party has been advised of the possibility
of such damages.
In no event will Thrive Business Solutions or its third party service providers be
liable to Client or any third Party for any tort, contract or any
other liability arising in connection with the use of the Services, or
reliance on any information or services provided by Thrive Business Solutions. Thrive Business Solutions and
its third party service providers will under no circumstances be
liable to Client and/or any third party, regardless of the form of
action, for any loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other
intangible losses, or any direct, indirect, special, consequential,
incidental or punitive damages whatsoever, even if Thrive Business Solutions or its third
party service providers has been advised of the possibility of such
damages, resulting from: (i) the use of the inability to use the
Services; (ii) the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery, or failure to
store any user date, communications or personalization settings; (iii)
the cost of getting substitute goods and services resulting from any
products, data, information or services purchases or obtained or
messages received or transactions entered into, through or from the
Services; (iv) statements or conduct of anyone on the Services; (vi)
the use, inability to use, unauthorized use, performance or
non-performance of any third party, even if the third party has been

other matter relating to the Services. Client agrees that Client will
not in any way hold Thrive Business Solutions responsible for any selection or retention
of, or the acts or omissions of, third parties (including third party
service providers) in connection with the Client Services.
Because some states prohibit the limitation of liability for
consequential or incidental damages, in such states the limitation of
liability only with respect to consequential or incidental damages may
not apply to Client, and the respective liability of Thrive Business Solutions and its
third party service providers, employees, distributors and agents is
limited to the greatest extent allowable under applicable law in those
In the event that a court or arbitration panel, as the case may be,
should hold that the limitations of liability or remedies available as
set forth in this Agreement, or any portions thereof, are
unenforceable for any reason, or that any of Client's remedies under
this Agreement fail, then Client expressly agrees that under no
circumstances will the total, aggregate liability of Thrive Business Solutions and its
third party service providers, employees, distributors, agents or
affiliates, to Client or any party claiming by or through Client for
any cause whatsoever exceed $100 (U.S.), regardless of the form of
action and whether in contract, statute, tort or otherwise.
7.1 Without Cause. This Agreement may be terminated by either party
at any time during any Renewal Term for any or no reason upon either
party giving to the other no less than five (5) days' prior email
notice of termination. No matter which party terminates the Agreement
pursuant to this Section 7.1, any and all payment obligations of
Client under this Agreement for Service(s) provided through the date
of termination will immediately become due, and Client shall be
required to prepay for any portion of the Services that have not been
paid for and are to be rendered during such five (5) day period.
7.2 For Cause. In addition to any other rights it may have under
this Agreement or applicable law, Thrive Business Solutions may immediately terminate this

comply with the TOS or other policies of Thrive Business Solutions. Client may terminate
this Agreement if Thrive Business Solutions breaches any material term or written notice
of same. If this Agreement is terminated by Thrive Business Solutions under this Section
7.2, all balance of the then current term shall immediately become due
and payable. In addition to the foregoing, Thrive Business Solutions reserves the right to
prohibit any conduct or to remove any materials or content in
violation of the TOS or which Thrive Business Solutions believes in its sole discretion to
be illegal or potentially harmful to others or may expose Thrive Business Solutions to
harm or liability.
