(iii) You may terminate this Agreement at any time, for any reason or no reason, by providing electronic notice to Us via the Web Site at least 24 hours prior to your Renewal Date or by sending a hard copy notice to Us that is received by Us at least two calendar days prior to your Renewal Date.

Questions regarding charges must be brought to the attention of our billing department in a notice sent in accordance with Paragraph 22(b) within 90 days after the end of the questioned billing period. All fees and other charges must be paid in United States currency and exclude applicable taxes, duties and similar charges, which will be charged to and payable separately by You.
The Web Site, the Application, and the Services are conducted and provided by Us electronically. You agree that We may communicate electronically with You with respect to any and all matters relating to the Services and User Platform. The security of communications sent over the Internet (including by email) is subject to many factors outside of Our control. We do not guarantee the security or privacy of any such communications and will bear no liability for any damages to You or any third party as a result of any such communications.

The Web Site may include links that will take You to other websites outside of the Web Site (collectively, the “Linked Sites”). The Linked Sites are provided by Us to You as a convenience and the inclusion of such links does not imply any endorsement by Umso of any Linked Site. We have no control over the Linked Sites.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES WILL APPLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW REGARDLESS OF THE SUCCESS OR EFFECTIVENESS OF OTHER REMEDIES.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY REFLECT AN AGREED ALLOCATION OF RISK AND REPRESENT IN PART, THE CONSIDERATION FOR THE SERVICES TO YOU, ABSENT WHICH, THE COST OF THE SERVICES WOULD BE MUCH GREATER, AND THAT SUCH LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY EVEN IF UMSO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR LIABILITIES.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Umso, and its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, representatives, agents, successors, and assigns, (collectively, the “Umso Indemnified Parties”), from and against any and all Claims or Costs, whether direct, incidental, indirect, consequential, or special in nature, including reasonable legal fees, expert witnesses, liabilities, obligations, damages, costs, and other expenses (collectively, “Costs”) incurred in the investigation and defense of any claim (as hereinafter defined) based on any claim, demand, proceeding, suit, or action (collectively, “Claims” and each a “Claim”) to which any Umso Indemnified Party may become subject resulting from or arising out of or in connection with any breach of the Agreement by You or the use by You or any of the users of Your User Platform or the Services or any part thereof.

Umso reserves all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement.
Each provision of this Agreement is declared to be a separate and distinct promise and to be separable from all other such separate and distinct promises. If any promise, provision or part thereof is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction or other constituted legal authority to be void, unenforceable or unreasonable in whole or in part, it will not be deemed to affect or impair the enforceability or validity of any other promise or provision in this Agreement or any part thereof and the said court or other constituted legal authority will have the authority to limit such promise or provision as it deems proper to most closely match the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless expressly agreed to by Umso in a non-electronic writing manually signed by a duly authorized officer of Umso.
We will not be liable for any non-performance or delay in performance caused by any event reasonably beyond Our control including without limitation, any accident, act of God, the activities of hackers, civil commotion, earthquake, embargo, epidemic, explosion, fire, flood, extreme weather condition, force of nature, hostilities, act of terrorism, health pandemic, malicious conduct, national emergency, revolution, riot or war, service outage resulting from equipment or software or telecommunications failure, power failure, network failure, or failure of third party service provider (including provider of internet services and telecommunications).

This Agreement may be assigned by Umso without notice to or consent from You and upon any such assignment Umso will be relieved of all obligations hereunder.
Nothing in this Agreement shall render or be interpreted to constitute either Umso or the Subscriber as the employee, partner, or agent acting for or on behalf of the other party. This Agreement is intended for the sole benefit of Umso and the Subscriber.
