Accordingly, any user of the GRE Product(s) should only reasonably rely on the information contained in any of the GRE Product(s), while making any investment or other decision. GRE, its affiliates and their third-party licensors shall not be subject to any damages or liability for any errors, omissions or delays in the GRE Product(s). The GRE Product(s) and all components thereof are provided on an “as is” basis and subscriber’s usage of the GRE Product(s) is at subscriber’s own risk.
GRE, its affiliates and all of their third-party licensors also disclaim to have no responsibility for any harm to Subscriber’s computer system, loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from Subscriber accessing GRE Product(s) or downloading of any material posted on such GRE Product(s), or on any website linked to such GRE Product(s) including any loss or damage caused by viruses, trojans, distributed denial-of-service attack, or other technologically harmful material (which is not knowingly or intentionally introduced by GRE) that may infect Subscriber’s computer equipment, software, data or other material.

Nothing in this agreement seeks to limit or restrict liability for death or personal injury resulting from negligence.
No action, regardless of form, arising from or pertaining to this agreement may be brought by subscriber more than one (1) year after such action has accrued.
8. AUDIT / INSPECTION

GRE’s failure to conduct an audit pursuant to this Section 8 shall not relieve Subscriber from its responsibilities to comply fully with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. GRE shall bear the costs of any such audit and/or inspection, unless such audit and/or inspection reveals an underpayment to GRE of five percent (5%) or more; in such case, Subscriber shall reimburse GRE for its costs and expenses in conducting such audit and/or inspection. To the extent that the GRE Product(s) are being delivered to Subscriber via email, GRE may incorporate tracking mechanisms to enable GRE to determine whether restrictions on usage are being violated. Such tracking mechanisms shall allow GRE to collect information about whether the GRE Product(s) distributed by GRE to Authorized Users via e-mail is forwarded to other e-mail addresses and to determine the IP address or other information regarding such other destination e-mail addresses.
GRE reserves the right to use such IP address or other e-mail address information to enforce GRE’s rights in the event it believes unauthorized redistribution of the GRE Product(s) has occurred. Subscriber agrees to permit GRE or its representatives to periodically inspect, at Subscriber’s location(s), during reasonable hours and at reasonable intervals, the terminals, workstations and/or any network on or by which any portion of the GRE Information is accessed for purposes of establishing compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
