LIMITATIONS

Some functionalities of the Software are dependent on data provided by third parties. Only such data (“Available Data”) can be processed and analysed by Tambo. Therefore, under certain circumstances, Tambo may be forced to reduce the available functionality of the Software and is entitled to do so, as long as such a reduction in functionality is the consequence of changes to the Available Data made by a third party. If such a reduction of functionality of the Software significantly impairs the Customer’s interest in using the Software, the Customer may on 30 days’ written notice to Tambo, terminate the Services.

Tambo shall have no liability for delay or losses incurred under and/or in connection with the Contract to the extent any such liability is caused by (i) use of the Software contrary to Tambo’s instructions, minimum requirements or modification or alteration of the Software by any person other than Tambo or Tambo’s duly authorised contractors or agents, or (ii) any act or omission of the Customer or an Authorised User in breach of the Contract.

If the Customer is not completely satisfied with the Services, your sole remedy is to cease using the Services.  With respect to any fee-based Services, if you signed up for a designated term or timeframe, you will still be responsible for payment for the full term. In any case, you will be responsible for any and all charges and activity accrued prior to your Services termination date, and those obligations will survive your termination of the Services.

If Tambo provides Support Services at the request of the Customer and Tambo, after beginning the provision of those Support Services, reasonably concludes that Tambo has no obligation to provide those Support Services by virtue of the exceptions set out above, Tambo may levy additional Charges in respect of (i) those Support Services, and (ii) any subsequent Support Services provided in relation to the issue with the consent of the Customer at its standard time-based rates.

Except as expressly and specifically provided in these Terms & Conditions, the Customer assumes sole responsibility for results obtained from the use of the Services by the Customer, and for conclusions drawn from such use.

Unless the Customer notifies Tambo that it intends to make a claim in respect of an event within the notice period, Tambo shall have no liability for that event. The notice period for an event shall start on the day on which the Customer became, or ought reasonably to have become, aware of the event having occurred and shall expire 6 months from that date. The notice must be in writing and must identify the event and the grounds for the claim in reasonable detail.

The Customer shall indemnify Tambo against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including but not limited to any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by Tambo arising out of in connection with (i) any breach of Customer Obligations, or (ii) claims, actions, proceedings, losses, damages, expenses and costs (including without limitation court costs and reasonable legal fees) arising out of or in connection with the Customer’s use of the Services.
