While ASA makes reasonable efforts to include only accurate and up-to-date content on the Site, ASA makes no warranties or representations as to the accuracy or completeness of any of the Content. ASA assumes no liability or responsibility for any inaccuracies, technical or typographical errors, or omissions in the Content, and you expressly accept and assume all such risks and agree to hold ASA harmless for any damages, liabilities, and other loss directly or indirectly related to such risks.
