The Client agrees to hold H&H, its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, partners, suppliers and employees harmless from any and all claims, lawsuits, settlements, judgments, costs, penalties, and expenses, including legal fees and expenses resulting from, or arising out of or in connection with any function of H&H under this Agreement, unless it is determined that the liability therefore was the direct consequence of criminal conduct, or fraud on the part of H&H, its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, partners, suppliers or employees.

H&H’s liability, and the liability of its affiliates, their respective directors, officers, partners, suppliers and employees, if any, arising out of or in any way related to this Agreement or the performance of its duties and obligations hereunder, whether based in contract, tort, negligence or any other legal basis, shall for all purposes in total be limited to direct damages in an amount not to exceed the equivalent of the amount paid by you to H&H hereunder for any goods or services from which the claim arose.

In no event shall H&H or its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, partners, suppliers and employees have any liability at any time for any loss of profits, loss of business revenue, failure to realize expected savings, or for any indirect, special, or consequential damages, even if advised of the possibility of such damages. H&H relies on these limitations when entering into this Agreement and setting its fees for the Services. They are a fundamental and essential part of the Agreement and shall survive the termination of this Agreement for any reason.
