Software Product Limited Warranty
To the original customer only, DEX Software provides the following warranties:
Limited Warranty. DEX SOFTWARE WARRANTS THAT (a) FOR A PERIOD OF SIXTY (60) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF ORIGINAL PURCHASE ("WARRANTY PERIOD") AS EVIDENCED BY YOUR RECEIPT OR OTHER PROOF OF PURCHASE (i) THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT, UNLESS MODIFIED OR OTHERWISE ALTERED BY YOU, WILL PERFORM SUBSTANTIALLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ACCOMPANYING WRITTEN MATERIALS, AND (ii) THE MEDIA ON WHICH THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT IS FURNISHED WILL BE FREE FROM DEFECTS IN MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP UNDER NORMAL USE; AND (b) ANY SUPPORT SERVICES PROVIDED BY DEX SOFTWARE SHALL BE SUBSTANTIALLY AS DESCRIBED IN APPLICABLE WRITTEN MATERIALS PROVIDED TO YOU BY DEX SOFTWARE. DEX Software does not warrant that the Software Product will meet Your requirements or that Use of the Software Product will be uninterrupted or error-free. DEX Software is not responsible for problems caused by changes in the operating characteristics of computer hardware or computer operating systems which are made after the release of the Software Product, nor for problems in the interaction of the Software Product with non-DEX Software software products. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on duration of an implied warranty, so the above limitation may not apply to You. The Limited Warranty gives You specific legal rights. You may have others, which vary by jurisdiction.
Exclusive Remedy. DEX Software's entire liability, and Your exclusive remedy, shall be, at DEX Software's option, either (a) replacement of the defective media, (b) repair or replacement of the Software Product that does not meet DEX Software's Limited Warranty, or (c) return of the price paid, if any, and termination of this License Agreement. This remedy is subject to return of the Software Product to DEX Software with a copy of Your receipt within the Warranty Period or, solely for Software Product that was obtained electronically via "electronic software distribution", to delivery to DEX Software of an DEX Software-approved "certification of destruction" together with proof of purchase within the Warranty Period. This Limited Warranty is void if failure of the Software Product has resulted from accident, abuse or misapplication. Any replacement Software Product will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days, whichever is longer. Outside of the United States, neither these remedies nor any Support Services are available without proof of purchase from an authorized source.
No Other Warranties. THE ABOVE WARRANTIES ARE EXCLUSIVE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, DEX SOFTWARE AND ITS SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND THOSE ARISING OUT OF USAGE OF TRADE OR COURSE OF DEALING, CONCERNING THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT, AND THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT SERVICES. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY DEX SOFTWARE, ITS AGENTS, DEALERS, DISTRIBUTORS OR EMPLOYEES SHALL INCREASE THE SCOPE OF THE ABOVE WARRANTIES OR CREATE ANY OTHER WARRANTIES.
No Liability for Damages. REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL DEX SOFTWARE OR ITS SUPPLIERS (OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AGENTS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR REPRESENTATIVES) BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, ECONOMIC, PUNITIVE OR SIMILAR DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL OR PECUNIARY DAMAGES OR LOSSES) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT OR THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT SERVICES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY LEGAL THEORY OF LIABILITY (WHETHER IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE), EVEN IF DEX SOFTWARE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER PARTY. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LICENSE FEE REFLECTS THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK. In any event, if any statute implies warranties or conditions not stated in this License Agreement, DEX Software's entire liability under any provision of this License Agreement shall be limited to the greater of the amount actually paid by You to license the Software Product and Five United States Dollars (US$5.00), or, in the case of Support Services, providing such Support Services again or refunding the cost thereof. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to You.
