  3. Although you are not required to credit HRM for each use or reproduction of the datasets, you are entitled to do so and encouraged to conspicuously announce that these datasets are publicly available from HRM under these Terms of Use. Upon the request of HRM, you may be required to remove a credit from future uses or reproductions should HRM decide that such credit is not in the public interest.

  8. HRM is not liable for any damages in connection with the datasets and your use thereof, or inability to use, even if HRM acts negligently or willfully, or is aware of the possibility of damages. Without limiting the general scope of the preceding sentence, this means that HRM, its Mayor, Councillors, Officers, employees, agents and volunteers, are not liable on any legal theory or basis for any direct, incidental, indirect, special, punitive, exemplary, or consequential damages or losses, including without limitation, loss of revenue or anticipated profits, loss of goodwill, loss of business, loss of data, computer failure or malfunction, or any other damages or losses arising from your access to, and use of, the datasets.
