10.5. Third Party Licenses. IBEE makes a reasonable effort to provide customers with technologies, developments, and innovations (collectively “Technologies”), part of which may be licensed, or co-branded, from or by, third party entities. However, IBEE makes NO warranty of any kind, either express or implied, regarding the quality, accuracy, reliability, validity, or continued existence of any or all aspects of such Technologies. Moreover, IBEE specifically disclaims all warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose for such Technologies. Furthermore, no customer will hold IBEE liable in any way for the revocation of any license, which has been licensed to IBEE. The use of the Technologies obtained from or through IBEE, or any other referred third party, whether directly or indirectly, is at the sole risk of customers.

10.6. Software Distribution. IBEE's Web Hosting and E-Commerce accounts are not configured for the purposes of distributing software and/or multimedia products. If you wish to distribute software and/or multimedia files, please contact sales@ibeehosting.com to make special arrangements.

10.7. Non-IBEE Products. Any mention of non-IBEE products by IBEE, its employees, or any third party entity related to IBEE is for information purposes only and does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by IBEE. IBEE disclaims any and all liabilities for any representation or warranty made by the vendors of such non-IBEE products or services.

10.8. IBEE's Intellectual Property. Customers will not, without IBEE’s express written consent, copy, reproduce, republish, or otherwise use any material, in whole or in part, that is located on IBEE’s web site, and customers will not use any of IBEE’s trademarks, service marks, copyrighted materials, or other intellectual property without IBEE’s express written consent. Customers will not, in any way, misrepresent their relationship with IBEE, attempt to pass themselves off as IBEE, or claim that customers are IBEE.

11. Force Majeure

IBEE will not be liable for delays in its performance of the Agreement or IBEE services caused by circumstances beyond IBEE’s reasonable control, including acts of God, wars, insurrection, civil commotions, riots, national disasters, earthquakes, strikes, fires, floods, water damage, explosions, shortages of labor or materials, labor disputes, transportation problems, accidents, embargoes, or governmental restrictions (collectively “Force Majeure”). IBEE will make reasonable efforts to reduce to a minimum and mitigate the effect of any Force Majeure. Notwithstanding anything contained elsewhere herein, nor will any event of Force Majeure suspend any obligation of customers for the payment of money due.

12. Independent Contractors

Nothing in this Agreement will be construed as creating a partnership or relationship of employer and employee, principal and agent, partnership or joint venture between IBEE and its customers. Each of IBEE and its customers will be deemed an independent contractor at all times and will have no right or authority to assume or create any obligation on behalf of the other, except as may be expressly provided herein.

13. Complete Agreement and Exclusivity

The Agreement, and/or any other specific agreement for IBEE services, constitutes the complete understanding and agreement between IBEE and its customers. Except when expressly agreed to the contrary in signed writing by an authorized representative of IBEE, the Agreement supersedes any other written (including digitized/computerized) agreement, oral agreement, and/or agreement by conduct. This Agreement, and/or any other specific agreement for IBEE services is between IBEE and its customers only and will not confer any rights in any third party except as otherwise expressly provided by IBEE.
