Aggregate liability shall, in no case, exceed the aggregate amount payable by Customer to Microquest. All prior agreements, both oral and written, between the parties on the matters contained in this Agreement are expressly cancelled and superseded by this Agreement.

7. The highly specialized nature of Microquest information requires that short-term access to the database is priced at the standard 12-month License rate. The 12-month License period is offered as a courtesy and convenience to Microquest's Customers, however, a one-day or part of one-day License is not discounted in any form and requires payment in full at the rate described as a 12-month License. Microquest accounts are non-cancelable/non-refundable after activation.
