In no event will The IoN be liable for any indirect damages, whether arising from tort or contract, including, but not limited to, loss of data, lost profits, cost of cover, or other special, incidental, consequential, or indirect damages arising out of the services provided, or the use or inability to use any of the materials, however caused and on any theory of liability.
