You represent and warrant to CheeShip that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur.

8.1. The Services may be temporarily unavailable for scheduled maintenance or for unscheduled emergency maintenance, either by CheeShip or by third-party providers, or because of other causes beyond our reasonable control. THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE SITE AND CONTENT, AND ALL SERVER AND NETWORK COMPONENTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, AND CHEESHIP EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT CHEESHIP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE OR VIRUS-FREE, NOR DOES IT MAKE ANY WARRANTY AS TO THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM USE OF THE SERVICES, AND NO INFORMATION, ADVICE OR SERVICES OBTAINED BY YOU FROM CHEESHIP OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS TOS.
8.2. CheeShip is not the importer of record for Products stored at or by CheeShip. CheeShip shall not be held liable for complying with your instructions regarding the Service. You acknowledge that CheeShip does not inspect Products nor does CheeShip take responsibility for the business decisions that you make and implement through the Service. For purposes of clarity, CheeShip is not the Merchant of Record for any Products. CheeShip is not responsible for Products that are damaged during the pick and pack process or for breakage of items during transit that have been picked and packed by CheeShip.
9.1. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL CHEESHIP BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA, OR (B) FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES, COSTS, LOSSES OR LIABILITIES IN EXCESS OF THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU IN THE SIX (6) MONTHS PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO YOUR CLAIM OR, IF NO FEES APPLY, ONE HUNDRED ($100) U.S. DOLLARS. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THIS TOS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THIS TOS.
9.2. CHEESHIP’S LIABILITY REFERRED TO IN THIS SECTION 9.2 SHALL BE YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST CHEESHIP FOR ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION WHATSOEVER RELATING TO LOSS, DAMAGE AND/OR DESTRUCTION OF PRODUCTS, UNLESS YOU PROVE BY AFFIRMATIVE EVIDENCE THAT CHEESHIP CONVERTED THE PRODUCTS TO ITS OWN USE. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHTS TO RELY UPON ANY PRESUMPTION OF CONVERSION IMPOSED BY LAW. IN THE EVENT OF LOSS, DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION OF PRODUCTS (“INVENTORY LOSS”) FOR WHICH CHEESHIP IS LEGALLY LIABLE, YOU AGREE THAT CHEESHIP’S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO $.50 PER POUND FOR SUCH LOST, DAMAGED, AND/OR DESTROYED PRODUCTS. IN NO EVENT WILL CHEESHIP BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST SALES REVENUE FROM INVENTORY LOSS. CHEESHIP’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY FOR INVENTORY LOSS WILL BE LIMITED TO 5% OF THE TOTAL PRODUCT VALUE (AS DEFINED BELOW) OR ONE MONTH OF THE AVERAGE BILLABLE STORAGE, WHICHEVER IS LOWER.
9.3. Handling physical products could result in loss or damage of Products. We maintain high standards, however occasionally facilities experience concealed shortages, product damages, mislabeled, miss-picked Products and/or cross-shipments. CheeShip maintains merchant friendly receiving and product labeling requirements. You agree that CheeShip will have a 3.5% shrink allowance based on the value of your account’s Products known to be in the facility based on the total Product value as determined in CheeShip’s sole reasonable discretion measured on an annual basis (“Product Value”) and subject to Limitations of Liability in this Section 9. Explainable, offsetting Product adjustments based on miss-marked Products or receiving Product errors will not be deemed a Product shrinkage event or lost Products.
9.4. Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to you. IN THESE STATES, CHEESHIP’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
