However, if the Services were purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. Recruiter seat bought by your employer), the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.

The limitations of liability in this Section 4 are part of the basis of the bargain between you and
Femigrants and shall apply to all claims of liability (e.g., warranty, tort, negligence, contract
and law) even if Femigrants or its affiliates has been told of the possibility of any such damage,
