1. Use License

You may not permit the Site to be used by or for the benefit of unauthorized third parties. Nothing in these Terms will be construed to grant you any right to transfer or assign rights to access or use the Site. All rights not expressly granted to you are reserved by Scale and its licensors. You may not (i) modify or make derivative works based upon the Sites; (ii) reverse engineer the Site or access the Sites in order to (a) build a competitive product or service, or (b) build a product using similar features, functions, or graphics of the Sites, or © copy any features, functions, or graphics of the Sites.

3. Third Party Software
The Site may include or incorporate third party software components that are generally available free of charge under licenses granting recipients broad rights to copy, modify, and distribute those components (“Third Party Components”). Although the Site is provided to you subject to these Terms, nothing in these Terms prevents, restricts, or is intended to prevent or restrict you from obtaining Third Party Components under the applicable third-party licenses or to limit your use of the Third Party Components under those third party licenses. The Site may also contain links to third party websites. Such linked websites are not under Scale’s control, and Scale is not responsible for their content.

5. Term and Termination
These Terms are effective beginning when you accept these Terms or first access or use the Site, and ending when terminated as described below. If you violate any provision of these Terms, your authorization to access the Site and these Terms automatically terminate. In addition, Scale may, at its sole discretion, terminate these Terms or suspend or terminate your access to the Site, at any time for any reason or no reason, with or without notice. You may terminate these Terms at any time by emailing email@example.com. Upon termination of these Terms: (a) your license rights will terminate and you must immediately cease all use of the Site. Sections 2, 6, 7, 8, and 10 will survive.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to defend, hold harmless and indemnify Scale and its officers, directors, employees, consultants, affiliates, subsidiaries and agents (together, the “Scale Entities”) from and against any and all claims brought by a third party, and any related losses, costs, expenses, damages or other liabilities incurred arising from or related to: (a) your unauthorized use of, or misuse of, the Sites; (b) your breach of any provision of these Terms; © your violation of any applicable law or regulation; (d) your violation of any third party right, including any intellectual property right or publicity, confidentiality, other property, or privacy right; or (e) any dispute or issue between you and any third party. Any such indemnification will be conditioned on our notifying you in writing of any such claim, demand, action, cost, liability, loss or threat of any thereof. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by (without limiting your indemnification obligations with respect to that matter), and in that case, you agree to cooperate with our defense of those claims. We reserve the right to report any wrongdoing of which we become aware to the applicable government agencies or otherwise.
THE SITE AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT ON AND AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. Scale makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights, and any warranty arising out of course of dealing, usage, or trade. Scale does not warrant that the Site or any portion of the Site, or any materials or content offered through the Site, are accurate, complete, or current, or will be uninterrupted, secure, or free of errors, viruses, or other harmful components; and Scale does not warrant that any of those issues will be corrected. Scale may make changes to the Sites at any time without notice, including by limiting or discontinuing certain features of the Sites. Scale does not, however, make any commitment to update the Sites. Scale will have no liability for any change to the Site or any suspension or termination of your access to or use of the Site.
THE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS, AND DISCLAIMS IN THIS SECTION APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Scale does not disclaim any warranty or other right that Scale is prohibited from disclaiming under applicable law.
8. Limitations of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL SCALE OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF DATA OR PROFIT, OR DUE TO BUSINESS INTERRUPTION,) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE OR THE MATERIALS ON THE SITE, EVEN IF SCALE OR A SCALE AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN NOTIFIED ORALLY OR IN WRITING OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF SCALE AND ITS SUPPLIERS TO YOU FOR ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY PORTION OF THE SITE OR OTHERWISE UNDER THESE TERMS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, IS LIMITED TO $100. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.
Each provision of these Terms that provides for a limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, or exclusion of damages is intended to and does allocate the risks between the parties under these Terms. This allocation is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the parties. Each of these provisions is severable and independent of all other provisions of these Terms. The limitations in this Section 8 will apply even if any limited remedy fails of its essential purpos
Scale may revise these Terms at any time without notice; provided that, if we make any material changes to these Terms, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you. By continuing to use the Site, you are agreeing to be bound by the then current version of these Terms.
10. Governing Law
Any claim relating to the Sites or these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
We are under no obligation to provide support for the Site. In instances where we may offer support, the support will be subject to published policies.
