Your obligation to pay fees continues through to the end of your subscription period.
Late Payments. If any amounts due hereunder are not received by Amazing Hiring within fifteen (15) days after the due date for any reason, then, at Amazing Hiring’s discretion, such amounts may accrue interest at the rate of 18% per year or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL AMAZING HIRING BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS, OR INJURY RESULTING FROM HACKING, TAMPERING, OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR USE OF THE SERVICES OR YOUR ACCOUNT OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN.
THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF THIS SECTION IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND LIMIT THEIR POTENTIAL LIABILITY GIVEN THE FEES CHARGED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER IF AMAZING HIRING WERE TO ASSUME ANY FURTHER LIABILITY OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH HEREIN. THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS.
