11. Transactions with Third Parties. Although we created this virtual world, we do not control many of the things that happen inside of it. For example, we do not generally regulate the content of communications between users nor do we monitor users' interactions with the Site. Just like in the real world, you should exercise common sense when dealing with others. In particular, if you enter into a transaction with another user of the Site, your transaction is solely with that user. Although Weblo may provide a mechanism to help facilitate such activities within the virtual world, Weblo will have no responsibility or liability for such activities and cannot guarantee that you will have the same legal rights with respect to those transactions as if they had occurred in the real world (e.g., including but not limited to the sale or lease of virtual properties or assets).

15. Limitation of Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WEBLO WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL OR ANY OTHER LOSSES, EVEN IF WEBLO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. WEBLO'S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES AND CAUSES OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU PAID TO WEBLO DURING THE PERIOD THREE MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY. YOU AGREE THAT THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS COMPREHENSIVE AND APPLIES TO DAMAGES OF ANY KIND. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON CERTAIN DAMAGES, AND THEREFORE SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
