Limitations of liability
Expert System is not responsible in any way for the accuracy of the information provided by Users. Use of the Website and the Services is entirely at the User’s own risk.
Despite periodically checking the content of webpages pointed to by the Website or reachable via any advertising banners (and/or other advertising spaces) present on the Website, Expert System does not accept and so declines all responsibility for such content. Although the Website is checked periodically, Expert System cannot guarantee that it is immune from viruses or other potentially damaging software. The User must always apply the most updated protection measures before accessing the web and carrying out any operations including, in particular, the download of documents and software.
Expert System declines all responsibility for any damage, losses or loss of profits not caused by its direct and/or indirect negligence that may be incurred by the User or third parties in relation to use of the Website and the Services, or the information contained in them including, but not limited to, financial losses, the loss or corruption of data, and loss of benefits or interests, unless otherwise agreed to by Expert System.
The liability of Expert System for any losses and/or damage suffered by the User due to the content of the Website or in relation to the Services is limited to the elimination of the content or materials concerned within a reasonable period, or to the adoption of any other action deemed useful and appropriate.
IT pirates might gain access to the Website, changing its content and adding damaging materials such as viruses, trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, corrupted files or any other type of destructive software that might damage the IT equipment or property of others. In that case, Expert System declines any and all responsibility for the damage, losses or changes generated for the User by those third parties. Should circumstances allow, Expert System will notify Users about any interruptions to the normal functioning of the Website and the Services.
Expert System will not be liable under any circumstances should the User attempt to access the Website using an obsolete computer or software, with respect to those normally used to access the Internet. Expert System declines any and all responsibility for any losses or adverse consequences of any kind caused by interruptions or the lack of availability, reliability or usability of the Website and the Services due, in particular and by mere and incomplete way of example, to access errors, or for the speed and reliability of the User’s access to the Internet or any other types of network communications. Expert System declines all responsibility for losses or any other circumstances deriving from the removal, theft or use of any User identification (username and password) relating to the Website.
