11.  Warranty Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, emergence audio offers the site and the content on an “as is” and “as available” basis and makes no representations or warranties of any kind concerning the site, express, implied statutory or otherwise including, without limitation, warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement.
