Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, the above exclusion of implied warranties may not apply to you.

7.3 Exclusion of liability

In no case will BF, its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, or licensors be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages arising from your use of any BF service or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the BF service, including but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any content (or product) posted, transmitted or otherwise made available via a BF service.
