EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS WARRANTY DOCUMENT, ALL OTHER STATUTORY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABLE QUALITY OR MERCHANTABILITY, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, ARE DISCLAIMED. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM GROBO OR ELSEWHERE, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary by jurisdiction.
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST DATA OR REVENUE, OR FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, LOST DATA, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, YOUR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT, OR ANY OTHER SIMILAR ECONOMIC OR COMMERCIAL LOSS HOWEVER CAUSED REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN THE EVENT THAT WE ARE LIABLE UNDER ANT CAUSE OF ACTION, OUR LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO DIRECT DAMAGES ACTUALLY INCURRED AND SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE PRODUCT. The foregoing limitations will apply even if any warranty or remedy provided under this Agreement fails of its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
