This includes your use or inability to use the Sites, platform, matching services, Content, proprietary information, or any interruption or disruption of such use.
Some states and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to you.

These Terms & Conditions cannot be amended except by as set forth above. The failure of Povio to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms & Conditions will not be a waiver of that right.
In the event that any provision of these Terms & Conditions will be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be first revised to give the maximum permissible effect to its original intent or, if such revision is not permitted, that specific provision will be eliminated so that other provisions of these Terms & Conditions will otherwise remain in full effect and enforceable.
