From time to time, OIA affords its members the opportunity to retain the services of outside third parties who have no relationship to OIA other than as independent contractors. Examples of these independent third parties include, without limitation, information and automation technology specialists and attorneys at law. In identifying those independent third parties for your use, OIA has developed a level of comfort based upon past experiences. However, those independent third parties are not under the control or direction of OIA.
You understand and agree that OIA and any of its subsidiaries or affiliates shall in no event be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, or exemplary damages arising from your retention of or reliance upon the services provided by those independent third parties. This disclaimer shall include, but not be limited to, damages for loss of profit, business interruption, business reputation or goodwill, loss of programs or information, or other intangible loss arising out of the use of or the inability to use the service, or information, or any permanent or temporary cessation of such service or access to information, or the deletion or corruption of any content or information, or the failure to store any content or information.
