KIG may, in its sole and unilateral discretion and without notice, start, stop or modify any regulation or enforcement measures at any time. KIG action or inaction to regulate content or conduct or to enforce against any potential violation of the TOU by any user (or any other third party) does not waive KIG’s right to implement or not implement regulation or enforcement measures with respect to any subsequent or similar content, conduct or potential TOU violation.
You also understand and agree that any action or inaction by KIG or any of its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, consultants, agents or representatives (collectively, “KIG Representatives”) to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential TOU violation is undertaken voluntarily and in good faith, and you expressly agree that neither KIG nor any KIG Representative shall be liable to you or anyone else for any action or inaction to prevent, restrict, redress, or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of the TOU.

Accordingly, you further agree that any representation (written or verbal) by any KIG Representative (or by anyone else acting on behalf of KIG or by anyone purportedly acting on behalf of KIG) that KIG (including but not limited to any KIG Representative, anyone else acting on behalf of KIG, or anyone purportedly acting on behalf of KIG) would or would not prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content (including, without limitation, screen, block, moderate, review, remove, terminate, delete, edit or otherwise stop, cure or exclude any content), or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential or purported TOU violation is superseded by this provision and is nonbinding and unenforceable. Specifically, you agree that KIG, KIG Representatives and anyone else authorized to act on behalf of KIG shall in no circumstance be liable as a result of any representation that KIG, a KIG Representative or anyone else on behalf of KIG would or would not restrict or redress any content, conduct or potential or purported TOU violation. This paragraph may not be modified, waived or released except by a written agreement, dated and signed by KIG’s President and Chief Executive Officer and dated and signed by the individual or entity to whom the modification, waiver or release is granted.
KIG also has the right in its sole and unilateral discretion to limit, modify, interrupt, suspend or discontinue all or any portions of KIG at any time without notice. KIG and KIG Representatives shall not be liable for any such limitations, modifications, interruptions, suspensions or discontinuance, or any purported losses, harm or damages arising from or related thereto.
