Your Contact with Advertisers or Other Third Parties and Other Web Sites
Your dealings with advertisers or other third parties found on or accessible through the Site are solely between you and the third party. These dealings include, but are not limited to, your participation in promotions, the payment for and delivery of items if any, and any terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and should not be construed as an endorsement by TECHWELL of content, items, or services on those third-party web sites. You access and use such sites, including the content, items, or services on those sites, solely at your own risk.

TECHWELL does not make any representations or warranties with respect to any content or privacy practices, or otherwise with respect to such third parties or any items or services that may be obtained from such third parties, and you agree that TECHWELL will have no liability with respect to any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of any dealings between you and any third party, or as a result of the presence of such third parties on the Site.

Disclaimer of Warranties with Respect to Web Site
By accessing and/or using the site, you agree to assume total responsibility and risk arising out of or in any way related to your access and/or use of the site and the Internet. TECHWELL does not warrant that the site and its servers are free of malware or other harmful mechanisms. If your use of the site results in the need for servicing or replacing equipment or data, TECHWELL is not responsible for those costs.

TECHWELL provides the site and content “as is” and does not make any express or implied warranties, representations, or endorsements whatsoever (including without limitation warranties of title or non-infringement, or the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose) with regard to the site, any content, merchandise, information, or service provided through the site or on the Internet generally.

TECHWELL shall not be liable for any cost or damage arising either directly or indirectly from any transaction arising out of or in any way related to the site. It is solely your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness, and usefulness of all content, opinions, advice, services, merchandise, and other information provided and/or available through the site or on the Internet generally. TECHWELL does not warrant that the site will be uninterrupted or error-free or that defects in the site will be corrected.

Limitations of Liability
In no event will TECHWELL and/or any third party be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages, lost profits, or damages resulting from business interruption, loss of programs, or information, and the like) arising out of the access and/or use of or inability to access and/or use the site, or any content, information, or transactions provided on the site, or downloaded from the site, or any delay of such information or service, even if TECHWELL or such third party has been advised of the possibility of such damages, or any claim attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in the site and/or materials or information downloaded through the site.

Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. You agree that TECHWELL’s maximum liability arising out of or in connection with the site and/or your access and/or use of the site, including, but not limited to content, regardless of the cause of action (whether in contract, tort, breach of warranty or otherwise), shall not exceed twenty-five and no/100 dollars ($25.00).

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless TECHWELL, its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third-party Content providers to the Site from and against all losses, expenses, damages, and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees with respect to any information or material you submit or post to the Site or resulting from any violation of the Terms of Use (including infringement of Intellectual Property Rights, and negligent or wrongful conduct) by you.

Third-party Rights
The provisions of the Use of Site and Indemnification sections are for the benefit of TECHWELL and its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third-party Content providers to the Site. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce those provisions directly against you on its own behalf.

Modification or Suspension of the Web Site
TECHWELL may at any time modify, discontinue, or suspend its operation of the Site, or any part thereof, temporarily or permanently, without notice to you.

The Terms of Use and all licenses granted hereunder may be terminated by TECHWELL without notice at any time for any reason. If you are in default of any of the Terms of Use, in addition to termination of the Terms of Use, all licenses granted hereunder, and your access and/or use of the Site, TECHWELL hereby reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to pursue all legal remedies available to it. You agree that action taken under this Section may be effective without prior notice.

In the event of termination, however, those sections of the Terms of Use that provide for continuing obligations on your part and/or which by their nature are intended to survive the termination of the Terms of Use shall continue in full force and effect after termination, including, without limitation, the provisions related to Copyright, Licenses, and Idea Submissions; Use of the Site; Your Use of Content and Information; Indemnification; and Third-party Rights.

If any provision of the Terms of Use is found by a court or other binding authority to be invalid, you agree that every attempt shall be made to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in that provision, and the remaining provisions contained in the Terms of Use shall continue in full force and effect.

You agree that the Terms of Use will not be construed more strictly against one party than against the other merely by virtue of the fact that it may have been prepared by counsel of one of the parties. No waiver of any term of the Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term. TECHWELL may assign its rights and obligations under the Terms of Use to any individual or entity at any time and without prior notice.
