As one of the final steps to publishing Your mobile website on the Mobile Website Builder Service, You may be required to install or have installed in the code of Your website a certain section of code that redirects Site Visitors to Your mobile website (“Redirect Code”) when viewing Your website on a mobile device. In rare cases, installing Redirect Code incorrectly can cause a website to be impaired, malfunction or function differently.
Similarly, when accessing a Service from a Non-Duda Access Point, it may be necessary for a certain section of code (“Script”) to be added to Your website to ensure proper integration and functionality of the Service within Your website.
You understand and acknowledge at the Agreement’s Limitation of Liability (Sec. 18) and Indemnification (Sec. 19) apply to all foreseen and unforeseen situations arising from Your installation of Redirect Code and other Script insertion; in no way shall Duda be responsible for any related claims, liabilities, loss or damages.

"THIS SERVICE MAY CONTAIN TRANSLATIONS POWERED BY GOOGLE. GOOGLE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES RELATED TO THE TRANSLATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT."
The Services enable You to engage, install, add and/or procure certain third party services and tools, including apps, images and domain registrars from which You may purchase a domain name for Your website, (collectively, “Third Party Services”).
You acknowledge and agree that regardless of the manner in which such Third Party Services may be offered to You (bundled with certain Duda Services, offered separately by Duda or otherwise offered anywhere on the Services), Duda merely acts as an intermediary platform between You and such Third Party Services, and does not in any way endorse any such Third Party Services, or shall be in any way responsible or liable with respect thereto. Duda will not be a party to, or in any way be responsible for monitoring, any interaction or transaction between You and any Third Party Services.
Any and all use of such Third Party Services shall be done solely at Your own risk and responsibility, and may be subject to such legal terms which govern such Third Party Services, which You are encouraged to review before engaging with them.
Among the Third Party Services mentioned above is the YouTube API, which is subject to YouTube's Terms of Service (https://www.youtube.com/t/terms). By using Duda's Services alongside the YouTube API you agree to be bound by YouTube's Terms of Service.
While we hope to avoid such instances, Duda may, at any time and at its sole discretion, suspend, disable access to or remove from Your account and/or the Services, any Third Party Services – whether or not incorporated with or made part of Your account and/or website(s) at such time – without any liability to You or to any end users.
YOU SHALL NOT USE THE SERVICES TO TRANSMIT, ROUTE, PROVIDE CONNECTIONS TO OR STORE ANY MATERIAL THAT INFRINGES COPYRIGHTED WORKS OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES OR PROMOTES THE VIOLATION OF THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.
