Information provided through the Community Program may also be changed at any time without notice; provided, however, that SailPoint will provide prior notice in advance of any major changes or updates to the extent practicable.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR USE OF THE COMMUNITY PROGRAM IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE COMMUNITY PROGRAM IS PROVIDED WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

YOUR ONLY REMEDY AGAINST THE SAILPOINT INDEMNITEES IN CONNECTION WITH ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE FOREGOING IS TO STOP USING THE COMMUNITY PROGRAM.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. If any applicable authority holds any portion of this section to be unenforceable, then liability will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Nothing in these Terms purports to limit liability or alter your rights as a consumer that cannot be excluded or waived under applicable law.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify these Terms at any time. Modified terms are effective as soon as they are posted. We also reserve the right to waive or modify any of these Terms as they apply to a specific posting or member without affecting the application of these Terms to all other postings and members. Your continued use of the Community Program, or any materials or services accessible through it, after modified Terms are posted means you accept the modifications.
All notices under these Terms will be delivered to you in accordance with the notice provision of the Other Binding Agreement to which you are a party.
12. TERM AND TERMINATION
SailPoint may, in its sole discretion, terminate your access to the Community Program or terminate these Terms at any time.

No waiver by SailPoint of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
