11.2 Neither party is liable to the other under or in connection with the Agreement or the Service for any: 

a. loss of profit, revenue, savings, business, use, data (including Content), and/or goodwill; or

12.2 Either party may, by notice to the other party, immediately terminate the Agreement and your right to access and use the Service if the other party:

12.8 At any time prior to one month after the date of termination, you may request deletion of any Content stored using the Service, in which case, we must use reasonable efforts to promptly delete that Content.  Despite the previous sentence or anything else in the Agreement, Scriptsee is not required to retain any Content after termination of the Agreement.

12.9 Without limiting any other right or remedy available to us and without notice, we may restrict or suspend your access to and use of the Service and/or delete, edit or remove the relevant Content if we consider that you or any of your personnel have:

a. undermined, or attempted to undermine, the security or integrity of the Service or any Underlying Systems;

13.8 If any part or provision of the Agreement is or becomes illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, that part or provision is deemed to be modified to the extent required to remedy the illegality, unenforceability or invalidity.  If modification is not possible, the part or provision must be treated for all purposes as severed from the Agreement.  The remainder of the Agreement will be binding on you.

13.9 You may not assign, novate, subcontract or transfer any right or obligation under the Agreement without our prior written consent, that consent not to be unreasonably withheld.  You remain liable for your obligations under the Agreement despite any approved assignment, subcontracting or transfer.
