Except as expressly provided otherwise in a written agreement between you and us, all Services, including the Websites and related Materials, are provided “as is” without warranty or condition of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied terms of satisfactory quality, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.
