While Yahoo takes measures to protect the privacy and integrity of your user data and has implemented security controls governing external companies, Yahoo cannot guarantee the integrity of the third parties to whom you have granted access to your account or permission to handle your user data using OpenID or OAuth.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release and waive all claims (known and unknown) against Yahoo, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, licensors, co-branders or other partners, and employees from any and all liability for claims, damages (actual and/or consequential), costs and expenses (including litigation costs and attorneys' fees) of every kind and nature, arising from or in any way related to your use of the OpenID and OAuth Services. You understand that any fact relating to any matter covered by this release may be found to be other than now believed to be true and you accept and assume the risk of such possible differences in fact. In addition, you expressly waive and relinquish any and all rights and benefits which you may have under any other state or federal statute or common law principle of similar effect, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
