ThinkGo and its service providers, licensors and suppliers make no representations about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, security or accuracy of a site or the content for any purpose. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, all information, software, products, services, sites, and related content are provided "as is" without warranty or condition of any kind. ThinkGo and its service providers, licensors and suppliers hereby disclaim all warranties and conditions of any kind with regard to a site and the content, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement.
