These videos and photos may be posted to our respective websites and social media accounts. Users of the space expressly consent to the use of any photos or videos that include their likeness on CloudVO’s and its Partners’ websites and social media postings.
Waiver: Client acknowledges that due to the imperfect nature of verbal, written, and electronic communications and equipment, neither CloudVO nor its Partners shall be responsible for damages, direct or consequential, which may result from the failure to furnish any service, including but not limited to the service of conveying messages, communications and internet connectivity, access systems, and other utilities or services described under this Agreement or agreed to by CloudVO or its Partners. This indemnification of liability includes any perceived loss of business, profits, or anticipated earnings resulting from or in connection with the Client’s use of CloudVO and its Partners’ services, including telephone, voicemail, phone answering, mail delivery or mail forwarding, internet and computer services, and access systems. Client’s sole remedy and CloudVO’s sole obligation for any failure to render any service, any error or omission, or any delay or interruption with respect thereto, is limited to an adjustment to Client’s billing in an amount equal to the charge for such service for the period during which the failure, delay, or interruption occurs or continues. Nonetheless, Client may terminate this Agreement by providing CloudVO with five (5) days advance written notice if CloudVO or its Partners’ services substantially cease to function for five (5) consecutive business days during the term of this Agreement unless Client is in default of this Agreement.

The entire liability of CloudVO, and Client’s exclusive remedy with respect to the use of the site and Services, are limited to the lesser of 1) the amount paid by Client for the Services during the three (3) months preceding the date of any claim made by Client, or 2) $500.00 (US), whichever is less.
