To maintain control over the account and to prevent anyone from accessing the account (which would include information on viewing history for the account), the Account Owner should maintain control over the AURELIS ready devices that are used to access the service and not reveal the password nor details of the Payment Method associated with the account to anyone.

Neither AURELIS nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the services or content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including, but not limited to, lost profits, loss of data or goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute services arising out of or in connection with these terms or from the use of or inability to use the services or content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not AURELIS has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
In no event will the AURELIS total liability arising out of or in connection with these terms or from the use of or inability to use the services or content exceed the amounts you have paid to AURELIS for use of the services or content, or fifty Euro (€50) if you have not had any payment obligations to AURELIS, as applicable.
