6. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY

6.1 NEITHER COOL SPORTS, INC., NOR ANY OF ITS RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR ANY CONTRIBUTOR (COLLECTIVELY THE "COMPANY PARTIES") GUARANTEES THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS OR USEFULNESS OF ANY OF THE CONTENT, NOR ITS FITNESS FOR ANY PURPOSE. NONE OF THE COMPANY PARTIES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, INJURY OR WRONGFUL DEATH CAUSED BY YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION OBTAINED THROUGH THE SERVICE. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO EVALUATE THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS OR USEFULNESS OF ANY INFORMATION, INSTRUCTION, OPINION OR ADVICE CONTAINED IN THE CONTENT.
