USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT WITHOUT THE FOREGOING EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICES.
For the avoidance of doubt, OrCam shall not be liable towards you or any third party for any damage, loss, injury or harm caused by any action taken by you as a result of content presented through the Apps and Services.

OrCam shall not be responsible in the event that Services are used in such situations, or otherwise in violation of the user guide or these T&C.
You acknowledge and understand that the Apps and/or Services require internet connection which may have different associated charges (such as mobile data expenses) and necessitate consumption of the mobile device battery. You shall have no claim or demand towards OrCam with regards to the aforesaid.
BREACH AND INDEMNITY
Without derogating from any applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless OrCam and its employees, officers, directors and agents, as well as all third parties from and against all claims, damages, expenses, losses and liabilities that arise as a result of your violation of these T&C.
