SHUTTLEQ’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE API, IF ANY.

- REPRESENTATIONS AND INDEMNIFICATION
Developer represents, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that its Developer Programs do not directly or indirectly infringe the legal rights of a third party. Developer further represents and warrants that all information provided by Developer in connection with its use of the API is accurate and reliable.
