11. Disclaimers; No Warranties

THE COMMUNITY SITE AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE COMMUNITY SITE ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND ON AN "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. THE DELPHIX ENTITIES SPECIFICALLY (BUT WITHOUT LIMITATION) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RELATING TO THE COMMUNITY SITE AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE COMMUNITY SITE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: (i) ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; AND (ii) ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE. THE DELPHIX ENTITIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE COMMUNITY SITE OR ANY PART THEREOF, OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT OFFERED THROUGH THE COMMUNITY SITE, WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES, OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, AND DO NOT WARRANT THAT ANY OF THE FOREGOING WILL BE CORRECTED. 



NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM THE COMMUNITY SITE OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE COMMUNITY SITE WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING ANY OF THE DELPHIX ENTITIES OR THE COMMUNITY SITE THAT IS NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR ALL DAMAGES THAT MAY RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE COMMUNITY SITE, YOUR DEALINGS WITH OTHER COMMUNITY SITE USERS, AND ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE COMMUNITY SITE.

We may assign these Terms at any time without notice, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of these Terms or any provision of these Terms constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and shall not have any impact on the interpretation of particular provisions. In the event that any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect. Upon termination of these Terms, any provision that by its nature or express terms should survive will survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Sections 2 through 15.
