TVA reserves the right to modify or interrupt, at any time and from time to time, on a temporary or final basis, certain functions and functionalities of the Services, with or without prior notice.
TVA neither offers, nor makes or gives any explicit or implied declarations, representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever in respect of the Services, beyond what is expressly provided for herein. Therefore, unless expressly provided for herein, any explicit or implied declaration, representation, warranty or condition is hereby excluded.

Therefore, TVA will not, under any circumstances, be liable with respect to any transactions between the Customer and third party suppliers or products or services promoted in or through the Services.
No oral or written advice or information the Customer obtains from TVA will create any warranty whatsoever by TVA in that respect.
12. Limitation of liability

Effect of cancellation or termination of Packages
In the event that any of the Packages are cancelled or terminated for any reason whatsoever, you will lose your magazine newsstand, history and other information related to your account. Termination will result in the deletion and destruction of all of the information associated with the Customer’s subscription.
However, all Single Unit Purchases will remain available within the Application.
Cancellation or termination does not release the Customer from paying all amounts due to TVA. The applicable fees continue to apply until the end of the notice period.
The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the content provided through the Application (including the Application software) belongs to TVA or its licensors or content providers and is protected by intellectual property rights (including copyright and trademark right) or any other law.
