Nothing in this Agreement will limit Redworks’s right to take any action or invoke remedies, or will act as a waiver of Redworks’s rights in any way with respect to any of the foregoing activities. Redworks will not be responsible for any loss or damages of any kind incurred by Customer as a result of any limitation, termination or suspension of the Service under this Section 2(d).
3. CUSTOMER’S USE OF SERVICE.

Redworks may require that a UserID be replaced at any time.

Other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, no license or other rights in the Redworks Content are granted to the Customer, and all such rights are hereby expressly reserved by Redworks.
