The website and associated materials are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. To the full extent permissible by applicable law, the operators disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property.
