12.           LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY

IN NO EVENT WILL OSHAADVISOR BE LIABLE, IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF, OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE OSHAADVISOR SOFTWARE OR THE CONTENT, WHETHER OR NOT OSHAADVISOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY CLAIM(S) RELATING IN ANY WAY TO SUBSCRIBER’S INABILITY OR FAILURE TO PERFORM RESEARCH OR OTHER WORK OR TO PERFORM SUCH RESEARCH OR WORK PROPERLY OR COMPLETELY, EVEN IF ASSISTED BY OSHAADVISOR OR ANY DECISION MADE OR ACTION TAKEN BY SUBSCRIBER IN RELIANCE UPON THE AVAILABILITY OF OR CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE OSHAADVISOR SOFTWARE.

TO THE EXTENT THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, HELD TO BE INAPPLICABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF OSHAADVISOR FOR ANY REASON AND UPON ANY CAUSE OF ACTION (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY AND OTHER ACTIONS IN CONTRACT OR TORT) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE OSHAADVISOR SOFTWARE, OSHAADVISOR’S TOTAL LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO SUBSCRIBER’S DIRECT DAMAGES ACTUALLY INCURRED UP TO TWO HUNDRED FIFTY DOLLARS ($250).

BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO SUBSCRIBER.  IF SUBSCRIBER IS LOCATED IN CALIFORNIA, SUBSCRIBER HEREBY waives California Civil Code §1542, which says: ‘A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.’
