Under no circumstances shall Rush be liable for any damages arising from or incurred in connection with any Third Party Offerings. Warranty terms and periods, if any, vary by Third Party Licensor and Third Party Offering. Your rights and remedies with respect to your use of the Third Party Offerings, including maintenance, update, warranty, liability and any other services and obligations related to the Third Party Offerings will be governed by the applicable policies and procedures of the Third Party Licensor as stated in the applicable Third Party Agreement(s). The Third Party Agreements outline all warranties and representations, if any, offered to you with respect to Third Party Offerings purchased on or through the Platform. Rush makes no representations or warranties relating to, and shall have no liability in connection with, any Third Party Offerings, including without limitation any Services provided by the Third Party Licensor. Third Party Agreements governing your use of Third Party Offerings may be found here: www.rushtruckcenters.com/third-party-offerings. Third Party Licensors may change and update their respective Third Party Agreements from time to time, and Rush may post or otherwise make available to you the updated version.
