17.3.4 Privacy Settings: You may revoke or modify your permission for Facebook to provide Facebook Site Information to Developers at any time through the means provided in your privacy settings.
17.3.5 Developer Agreement. Before providing any information to any Developer through the Facebook Platform, Facebook requires each Developer to enter into an agreement (a "Developer Agreement"), which, among other things, strictly limits their collection, use, and storage of Facebook Site Information. Our standard Developer Agreement consists of the Facebook Developer Terms and Conditions and the related Facebook Platform Application Guidelines. We may from time to time enter into separate agreements with certain third party Developers that contain different or additional terms, provided however, that each such separate agreement will require the third party Developer to only display your information in accordance with your Facebook privacy settings. The standard Developer Agreement is subject to change without prior notice at any time, in the Company's sole discretion, so you should review these terms from time to time. However, Facebook cannot guarantee that each Developer will comply with its contractual requirements, and Facebook does not assume any liability or responsibility for any of Developer's actions, Developer Applications or websites, or for enforcing any Developer Agreement against any Developer.
17.4 Use of Platform Applications.
17.4.1 Developer Applications. When you install a Developer Application, you understand that such Developer Application has not been approved, endorsed, or reviewed in any manner by Facebook, and we are not responsible for your use of or inability to use any Developer Applications, including without limitation the content, accuracy, or reliability of such Developer Application and the privacy practices or other policies of the Developer. YOU USE SUCH DEVELOPER APPLICATIONS AT YOUR OWN RISK. Developers may require you to agree to their own terms of service, privacy policies and/or other policies as a condition of using Developer Applications. Those terms and/or policies may give Developers rights with respect to your Facebook Site Information beyond those provided by the Developer Agreement.
PLEASE REVIEW EACH DEVELOPER'S TERMS AND/OR POLICIES CAREFULLY.
17.4.3 You acknowledge that Developers or Facebook or its licensors own all right, title and interest in and to any and all Platform Applications, portions thereof, and/or content or software provided through or in conjunction with any Platform Applications, including without limitation any and all patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other proprietary rights, and any and all applications, renewals, extensions and restorations thereof, now or hereafter in force and effect worldwide. You also agree to not remove, obscure, or alter Facebook's or any third party's copyright notice, trademarks, or other proprietary rights notices affixed to or contained within or accessed in conjunction with or through any Platform Applications. You agree not to modify, adapt, translate, prepare derivative works from, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive source code from any Platform Applications; and
17.4.5 ALL PLATFORM APPLICATIONS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS," WITH NO WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER. FACEBOOK EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ALL EXPRESS, IMPLIED, AND STATUTORY WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. FACEBOOK FURTHER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES REGARDING THE RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, AVAILABILITY AND/OR PERFORMANCE OF ANY PLATFORM APPLICATIONS. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU DOWNLOAD, INSTALL AND/OR USE ANY PLATFORM APPLICATIONS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK AND THAT YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD, INSTALLATION OR USE OF ANY PLATFORM APPLICATIONS. SOME STATES OR OTHER JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE AND JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.
17.4.6 Integration or "Entire Agreement" Clauses in Application-Specific Terms and Conditions. For the avoidance of doubt, the existence of any provision of any separate terms and conditions or agreements applicable to any Facebook Applications to the effect that such terms or agreement constitute the entire agreement or understanding between you and Facebook with respect to any subject matter, however phrased, will not be deemed to supersede or preclude enforcement of any of the terms and conditions set forth in section (6), (16.3) and (16.4), except to the extent that such terms directly conflict with the terms of such other agreement or terms.
17.4.7 RELEASE AND DISCLAIMER. YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY RELEASE AND AGREE TO HOLD HARMLESS FACEBOOK AND ITS AFFILIATES, AND EACH OF THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES AND REPRESENTATIVES, FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, COSTS, LOSSES, LIABILITIES AND DAMAGES OF ANY SORT (WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER ARISING IN TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE (WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED)), CONTRACT, WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, RELIANCE OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT FACEBOOK HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF: (A) YOUR DOWNLOAD, INSTALLATION OR USE OF ANY FACEBOOK APPLICATIONS OR DEVELOPER APPLICATIONS, (B) DELIVERY OF ANY INFORMATION BY FACEBOOK TO ANY DEVELOPER; OR (C) ANY USE BY ANY DEVELOPER OF ANY INFORMATION, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH USE IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DEVELOPER AGREEMENT. SUCH LIMITATION SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING A FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. SOME STATES OR OTHER JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
