  5. Survival.  The Terms will remain in effect even after your access to the Service is terminated, or your use of the Service ends.

7. Warranties And Limitation Of Liability (Or The Things You Can’t Sue Us For)

  1. Third Party Services. Our Services may contain links to third party websites or services that we don’t own or control (for example, links to Facebook or Twitter). You may also need to use a third party’s product or service in order to use some of our Services (like a compatible mobile device to use our mobile apps). When you access these third-party services, you do so at your own risk. The third parties may require you to accept their own terms of use. Depot Express is not a party to those agreements; they are solely between you and the third party.
  2. Warranties. Depot express is dedicated to making our services the best they can be, but we’re not perfect and sometimes things can go wrong. You understand that our services are provided “as is” and without any kind of warranty (express or implied). We are expressly disclaiming any warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose, as well as any warranties implied by a course of performance, course of dealing, or usage of trade.
  3. We do not guarantee that: (i) the services will be secure or available at any particular time or location; (ii) any defects or errors will be corrected; (iii) the services will be free of viruses or other harmful materials; or (iv) the results of using the services will meet your expectations. You use the services solely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
  4. Liability limits. To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither depot express, nor our employees or directors shall be liable to you for any lost profits or revenues, or for any consequential, incidental, indirect, special, or punitive damages arising out of or in connection with the services or these terms. In no event shall depot express’s aggregate liability for any damages exceed one hundred ($100) dollars (CAD). Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

8. Indemnification (Or What Happens If You Get Us Sued)

  1. We hope this never happens, but if Depot Express gets sued because of something that you did, you agree to defend and indemnify us. That means you’ll defend Depot Express (including any of our subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, employees, and service providers) and hold us harmless from any legal claim or demand (including reasonable lawyer’s fees) that arises from your actions, your use (or misuse) of our Services, your breach of the Terms, or you or your account’s infringement of someone else’s rights.
  2. We reserve the right to handle our legal defense however we see fit, even if you are indemnifying us, in which case you agree to cooperate with us so we can execute our strategy.

9. Disputes With Other Users

  1. If you find yourself in a dispute with another user of Depot Express’ Services or a third party, we encourage you to contact the other party and try to resolve the dispute amicably.
  2. Release of Depot Express: You release Depot Express from any claims, demands, and damages arising out of disputes with other users or parties.

10. Changes To The Terms

We may update these Terms from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely let you know by posting the changes through the Services and/or sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes unless otherwise specified. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.

11. Some Finer Legal Points

The Terms, including the Privacy Notice that make up the Terms, supersede any other agreement between you and Depot Express regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms.
