Section 1: Health and Safety Information
This device is capable of operating in Wi-Fi™ mode in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. The
FCC requires that devices operating within 5.15-5.25 GHz may only be used
indoors, not outside, in order to avoid interference with Mobile Satellite Services
(MSS). Therefore, this device is restricted from being used outdoors when operating
in frequencies between 5.15-5.25 GHz.
This section outlines the safety precautions associated with using your Galaxy Tab.
The terms “GALAXY” or “mobile device” are used in this section to refer to your
Galaxy Tab. Read this information before using your mobile device.

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Although GALAXY is not a cell phone, it can operate on the same network as cell
phones and can use the same Radio Frequency (RF) signals to communicate with
the network as a cell phone. Therefore, although the following information refers
specifically to RF exposure from wireless phones, it may apply similarly to GALAXY
when it is being used on a cell phone network.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published information for
consumers relating to Radio Frequency (RF) exposure from wireless phones. The
FDA publication includes the following information:
Health and Safety Information
4
Do cell phones pose a health hazard?
Many people are concerned that cell phone radiation will cause cancer or other
serious health hazards. The weight of scientific evidence has not linked cell phones
with any health problems.
Cell phones emit low levels of Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Over the past 15 years,
scientists have conducted hundreds of studies looking at the biological effects of
the radio frequency energy emitted by cell phones. While some researchers have
reported biological changes associated with RF energy, these studies have failed to
be replicated. The majority of studies published have failed to show an association
between exposure to radio frequency from a cell phone and health problems.
5
The low levels of RF cell phones emit while in use are in the microwave frequency
range. They also emit RF at substantially reduced time intervals when in the
stand-by mode. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating
tissue), exposure to low level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no
known adverse health effects.
The biological effects of radio frequency energy should not be confused with the
effects from other types of electromagnetic energy.
Very high levels of electromagnetic energy, such as is found in X-rays and gamma
rays, can ionize biological tissues. Ionization is a process where electrons are
stripped away from their normal locations in atoms and molecules. It can
permanently damage biological tissues including DNA, the genetic material.
Health and Safety Information
6
The energy levels associated with radio frequency energy, including both radio
waves and microwaves, are not great enough to cause ionization of atoms and
molecules. Therefore, RF energy is a type of non-ionizing radiation. Other types of
non-ionizing radiation include visible light, infrared radiation (heat), and other forms
of electromagnetic radiation with relatively low frequencies.
While RF energy does not ionize particles, large amounts can increase body
temperatures and cause tissue damage. Two areas of the body, the eyes and the
testes, are particularly vulnerable to RF heating because there is relatively little
blood flow in them to carry away excess heat.
Research Results to Date: Is there a connection between RF and certain
health problems?
The results of most studies conducted to date say no. In addition, attempts to
replicate and confirm the few studies that have shown a connection have failed.
7
The scientific community at large therefore believes that the weight of scientific
evidence does not show an association between exposure to Radio Frequency (RF)
from cell phones and adverse health outcomes. Still the scientific community has
supported additional research to address gaps in knowledge. Some of these studies
are described below.
Interphone Study
Interphone is a large international study designed to determine whether cell phones
increase the risk of head and neck cancer. A report published in the International
Journal of Epidemiology (June, 2010) compared cell phone usage for more than
5,000 people with brain tumors (glioma and meningioma) and a similar number of
healthy controls.
Health and Safety Information
8
Results of this study did NOT show that cell phones caused brain cancer. In this
study, most people had no increased risk of brain cancer from using cell phones. For
people with the heaviest use of cell phones (an average of more than ½ hour per
day, every day, for over 10 years) the study suggested a slight increase in brain
cancer. However, the authors determined that biases and errors prevented any
conclusions being drawn from this data. Additional information about Interphone
can be found at
http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2010/pdfs/pr200_E.pdf.
Interphone is the largest cell phone study to date, but it did not answer all questions
about cell phone safety. Additional research is being conducted around the world,
and the FDA continues to monitor developments in this field.
9
International Cohort Study on Mobile Phone Users (COSMOS)
The COSMOS study aims to conduct long-term health monitoring of a large group of
people to determine if there are any health issues linked to long-term exposure to
radio frequency energy from cell phone use. The COSMOS study will follow
approximately 300,000 adult cell phone users in Europe for 20 to 30 years.
Additional information about the COSMOS study can be found at
http://www.ukcosmos.org/index.html.
Risk of Brain Cancer from Exposure to Radio Frequency Fields in Childhood
and Adolescence (MOBI-KIDS)
MOBI-KIDS is an international study investigating the relationship between exposure
to radio frequency energy from communication technologies including cell phones
and brain cancer in young people. This is an international multi-center study
Health and Safety Information
10
involving 14 European and non-European countries. Additional information about
MOBI-KIDS can be found at
http://www.creal.cat/programes-recerca/en_projectes-creal/view.php?ID=39.
Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program of the
National Cancer Institute
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) actively follows cancer statistics in the United
States to detect any change in rates of new cases for brain cancer. If cell phones
play a role in risk for brain cancer, rates should go up, because heavy cell phone use
has been common for quite some time in the U.S. Between 1987 and 2005, the
overall age-adjusted incidence of brain cancer did not increase. Additional
information about SEER can be found at
http://seer.cancer.gov/.
11
Cell Phone Industry Actions
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory actions, the FDA
has urged the cell phone industry to take a number of steps, including the following:
• Support-needed research on possible biological effects of RF for the type of signal emitted
by cell phones;
• Design cell phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to the user; and
• Cooperate in providing users of cell phones with the current information on cell phone use
and human health concerns.
The FDA also is working with voluntary standard-setting bodies such as the Institute
of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the International Commission on
Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), and others to assure that safety
standards continue to adequately protect the public.

Reducing Exposure: Hands-Free Kits and Other Accessories
Steps to Reduce Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy
If there is a risk from being exposed to radio frequency energy (RF) from cell phones
- and at this point we do not know that there is - it is probably very small. But, if you
are concerned about avoiding even potential risks, you can take a few simple steps
to minimize your RF exposure.
• Reduce the amount of time spent using your cell phone;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between your head and the cell
phone.
13
Hands-Free Kits
Hands-free kits may include audio or Bluetooth® headsets and various types of
body-worn accessories such as belt-clips and holsters. Combinations of these can
be used to reduce RF energy absorption from cell phones.
Headsets can substantially reduce exposure because the phone is held away from
the head in the user's hand or in approved body-worn accessories. Cell phones
marketed in the U.S. are required to meet RF exposure compliance requirements
when used against the head and against the body.
Because there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from cell phones,
there is no reason to believe that hands-free kits reduce risks. Hands-free kits can
be used for convenience and comfort. They are also required by law in many states
if you want to use your phone while driving.
Health and Safety Information
14
Cell Phone Accessories that Claim to Shield the Head from RF Radiation
Because there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from cell phones,
there is no reason to believe that accessories which claim to shield the head from
those emissions reduce risks. Some products that claim to shield the user from RF
absorption use special phone cases, while others involve nothing more than a
metallic accessory attached to the phone. Studies have shown that these products
generally do not work as advertised. Unlike “hands-free” kits, these so-called
“shields” may interfere with proper operation of the phone. The phone may be
forced to boost its power to compensate, leading to an increase in RF absorption.
Children and Cell Phones
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to any users of cell phones from RF
exposure, including children and teenagers. The steps adults can take to reduce RF
exposure apply to children and teenagers as well.
15
• Reduce the amount of time spent on the cell phone;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between the head and the cell
phone.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised that children
be discouraged from using cell phones at all. For example, The Stewart Report from
the United Kingdom made such a recommendation in December 2000. In this
report, a group of independent experts noted that no evidence exists that using a
cell phone causes brain tumors or other ill effects. Their recommendation to limit
cell phone use by children was strictly precautionary; it was not based on scientific
evidence that any health hazard exists.
Additional information on the safety of RF exposures from various sources can be
obtained from the following organizations (updated 10/1/2010):

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) Certification
Information
Your wireless mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the exposure limits for Radio Frequency (RF) energy set
by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government.
Health and Safety Information
18
These FCC RF exposure limits are derived from the recommendations of two expert
organizations: the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement
(NCRP) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases,
the recommendations were developed by scientific and engineering experts drawn
from industry, government, and academia after extensive reviews of the scientific
literature related to the biological effects of RF energy.
The RF exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless mobile devices employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR is a measure
of the rate of absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in units of
watts per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC requires wireless devices to comply with a
safety limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
The FCC SAR limit incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection to the public and to account for any variations in measurements.
19
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC
with the mobile device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power
level, the actual SAR level of the mobile device while operating can be well below
the maximum reported value. This is because the mobile device is designed to
operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the
network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower
the power output of the mobile device.
Before a new model mobile device is available for sale to the public, it must be
tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the SAR limit established by
the FCC. Tests for each model mobile device are performed in positions and
locations (e.g. near the body) as required by the FCC.
Health and Safety Information
20
For typical operations, this mobile device has been tested and meets FCC SAR
guidelines.
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines. The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this mobile device
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure
guidelines. This tablet has a FCC ID number: A3LSMT530 [Model Number:
SM-T530NU] and the specific SAR levels for this tablet can be found at the following
FCC website: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/.
The SAR information for this device can also be found on Samsung’s website:
http://www.samsung.com/sar.
21
SAR information on this and other model mobile devices can be accessed online on
the FCC's website through http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/sar.html. To find
information that pertains to a particular model mobile device, this site uses the
mobile device FCC ID number, which is usually printed somewhere on the case of
the mobile device.
Once you have the FCC ID number for a particular mobile device, follow the
instructions on the website and it should provide values for typical or maximum SAR
for a particular mobile device. Additional SAR information can also be obtained at
http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/specific-absorption-rate-sar-cellular-telephones.

Commercial Mobile Alerting System (CMAS)
This device is designed to receive wireless emergency alerts from the Commercial
Mobile Alerting System ("CMAS"; which may also be known as the Personal
Localized Alerting Network ("PLAN")). If your wireless provider has chosen to
participate in CMAS/PLAN, alerts are available while in the provider's coverage area.
If you travel outside your provider's coverage area, wireless emergency alerts may
not be available. For more information, please contact your wireless provider.
Smart Practices While Driving
On the Road - Off the Tablet
The primary responsibility of every driver is the safe operation of his or her vehicle.
25
Responsible drivers understand that no secondary task should be performed while
driving whether it be eating, drinking, talking to passengers, or using a mobile
device - unless the driver has assessed the driving conditions and is confident that
the secondary task will not interfere with their primary responsibility. Do not engage
in any activity while driving a moving vehicle which may cause you to take your eyes
off the road or become so absorbed in the activity that your ability to concentrate on
the act of driving becomes impaired. Samsung is committed to promoting
responsible driving and giving drivers the tools they need to understand and address
distractions.
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices and their accessories in
the areas where you drive. Always obey them. The use of these devices may be
prohibited or restricted in certain areas. For example, only hands-free use may be
permitted in certain areas.
Health and Safety Information
26
Before using your device to chat with friends, consider your circumstances. Let the
chat wait when driving conditions require. Remember, driving comes first, nothing
else!
If you consider a chat necessary and appropriate, follow these tips:
• Use a hands-free device;
• Secure your mobile device within easy reach;
• Chat when you are not moving;
• Plan chats when your car will be stationary;
• Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations;
• Let the person with whom you are speaking know that you are driving and will suspend the
chat if necessary;
• Do not take notes or look up information while driving;

the battery is damaged or needs to be replaced, take the GALAXY to a service center
for inspection and replacement.
29
• Do not let the GALAXY or battery come in contact with liquids. Liquids can get into the
GALAXY’s circuits, leading to corrosion. Even when the GALAXY appears to be dry and
appears to operate normally, the circuitry could slowly corrode and pose a safety hazard. If
the GALAXY and/or battery get wet, have them checked by your service provider or contact
Samsung, even if they appear to be working properly.
• Do not place your battery in or near a heat source. Excessive heating can damage the
GALAXY or the battery and could cause the GALAXY or the battery to explode. Do not dry a
wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat source such as a microwave oven, hair
dryer, iron, or radiator. Avoid leaving your GALAXY in your car in high temperatures.
Health and Safety Information
30
• Caution: Some applications or prolonged usage may increase device temperature.
Prolonged skin contact with a device that is hot to the touch may produce skin discomfort
or redness, or low-temperature burns. If the device feels hot to the touch, discontinue use
and close all applications or turn off the device until it cools. Always ensure that the phone
has adequate ventilation and air flow. Covering the device with bedding, your body, thick
clothing or any other materials that significantly affect air flow may affect the performance
of the phone and poses a possible risk of fire or explosion, which could lead to serious
bodily injuries or damage to property.
• Do not dispose of the GALAXY or the battery in a fire. The GALAXY or the battery may
explode when overheated.
31
• Avoid dropping the GALAXY. Dropping the GALAXY, especially on a hard surface, can
potentially cause damage to the GALAXY. If you suspect damage to the GALAXY or battery,

GPS
GALAXY can use a Global Positioning System (GPS) signal for location-based
applications. A GPS uses satellites controlled by the U.S. Government that are
subject to changes implemented in accordance with the Department of Defense
policy and the 2008 Federal Radio navigation Plan (FRP). Changes may affect the
performance of location-based technology on your mobile device.
Your Location
Location-based information includes information that can be used to determine the
approximate location of a mobile device. Mobile devices which are connected to a
wireless network transmit location-based information. Additionally, if you use
applications that require location-based information (e.g. driving directions), such
Health and Safety Information
38
applications transmit location-based information. The location-based information
may be shared with third-parties, including your wireless service provider,
applications providers, Samsung, and other third-parties providing services.
Navigation
Maps, directions, and other navigation-data, including data relating to your current
location, may contain inaccurate or incomplete data, and circumstances can and do
change over time. In some areas, complete information may not be available.
Therefore, you should always visually confirm that the navigational instructions are
consistent with what you see before following them. All users should pay attention to
road conditions, closures, traffic, and all other factors that may impact safe driving or
walking. Always obey posted road signs.

Keep your Samsung Mobile Device away from:
Liquids of any kind
Keep the mobile device dry. Precipitation, humidity, and liquids contain minerals
that will corrode electronic circuits.
If the mobile device does get wet, do not accelerate drying with the use of an
oven, microwave, or dryer, because this may damage the mobile device and
could cause a fire or explosion. Do not use the mobile device with a wet hand.
Doing so may cause an electric shock to you or damage to the mobile device.
Extreme heat or cold
Avoid temperatures below 0°C / 32°F or above 45°C / 113°F.
41
Microwaves
Do not try to dry your mobile device in a microwave oven. Doing so may cause a
fire or explosion.
Dust and Dirt
Do not expose your mobile device to dust, dirt, or sand.
Cleaning solutions
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the
mobile device. Wipe it with a soft cloth slightly dampened in a mild
soap-and-water solution. If the mobile device has a retractable camera lens, do
not use soap and water to clean the lens. Use a blower or brush or lens cleaning
paper dampened in a lens cleaning solution.
Health and Safety Information
42
Shock or vibration
Do not drop, knock, or shake the mobile device. Rough handling can break
internal circuit boards.
Paint
Do not paint the mobile device. Paint can clog the device’s moving parts or
ventilation openings and prevent proper operation.
Responsible Listening
Caution! Avoid potential hearing loss.
Damage to hearing occurs when a person is exposed to loud sounds over time. The
risk of hearing loss increases as sound is played louder and for longer durations.
43
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common cause of
preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests that using portable
audio devices, such as portable music players and cell phones, at high volume
settings for long durations may lead to permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This
includes the use of headphones (including headsets, earbuds, and Bluetooth® or
other wireless devices).
Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some studies with tinnitus
(a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound, and distorted hearing. Individual
susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and potential hearing problem varies.
Additionally, the amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies
depending on the nature of the sound, the device settings, and the headphones that
are used. As a result, there is no single volume setting that is appropriate for
everyone or for every combination of sound, settings, and equipment.
Health and Safety Information
44
You should follow some common sense recommendations when using any portable
audio device:
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the earphones into an audio source.
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at which you can hear
adequately.
• Be aware that you can adapt to higher volume settings over time, not realizing that the
higher volume may be harmful to your hearing.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the people speaking
near you or if the person sitting next to you can hear what you are listening to.
45
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose to listen to your
portable device in a noisy environment, use noise-cancelling headphones to block out
background environmental noise. By blocking background environment noise, noise
cancelling headphones should allow you to hear the music at lower volumes than when
using earbuds.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is required before
you hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as rock concerts,
that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe
volumes to sound normal.
Health and Safety Information
46
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience ringing in your
ears, hear muffled speech, or experience any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to
your portable audio device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

Operating Environment
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area, and always switch
your mobile device off whenever it is forbidden to use it, or when it may cause
interference or danger. When connecting the mobile device or any accessory to
another device, read its user's guide for detailed safety instructions. Do not connect
incompatible products.
51
Using Your Mobile Device Near Other Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from Radio Frequency (RF) signals.
However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against the RF signals
from your wireless mobile device. Consult the manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Implantable Medical Devices
A minimum separation of six (6) inches should be maintained between a handheld
wireless mobile device and an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker or
implantable cardioverter defibrillator, to avoid potential interference with the device.
Persons who have such devices:
• Should ALWAYS keep the mobile device more than six (6) inches from their implantable
medical device when the mobile device is turned ON;
• Should not carry the mobile device in a breast pocket;
Health and Safety Information
52
• Should use the ear opposite the implantable medical device to minimize the potential for
interference;
• Should turn the mobile device OFF immediately if there is any reason to suspect that
interference is taking place;
• Should read and follow the directions from the manufacturer of your implantable medical
device. If you have any questions about using your wireless mobile device with an
implantable medical device, consult your health care provider.
For more information see: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html#.

14. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS RESTRICTED RIGHTS. The Software is licensed only
with "restricted rights" and as "commercial items" consisting of "commercial
software" and "commercial software documentation" with only those rights as are
granted to all other end users pursuant to the terms and conditions herein. All
Products are provided only with "restricted rights" with only those rights as are
Warranty Information
90
granted to all other end users pursuant to the terms and conditions herein. All
Software and Products are provided subject to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
52.227.19.
15. APPLICABLE LAW. This EULA is governed by the laws of the jurisdiction where
you are a resident or, if a resident of the United States, by the laws of the state of
Texas, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. This EULA shall not be
governed by the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the

16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
(a) Non-United States residents. If a dispute, controversy or difference arising in any
way from this EULA or your use of the Software is not amicably settled, it shall be
subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the jurisdiction where you
are a resident. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Samsung may apply for injunctive
remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
(b) United States residents. ALL DISPUTES WITH SAMSUNG ARISING IN ANY WAY
FROM THIS EULA OR YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE SHALL BE RESOLVED
EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, AND NOT BY A COURT
OR JURY. Any such dispute shall not be combined or consolidated with any other
person’s or entity’s claim or dispute, and specifically, without limitation of the
foregoing, shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of a class action. The
arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, whose award may not
Warranty Information
92
exceed, in form or amount, the relief allowed by the applicable law. The arbitration
shall be conducted according to the American Arbitration Association (AAA)
Commercial Arbitration Rules applicable to consumer disputes. This arbitration
provision is entered pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The laws of the State of
Texas, without reference to its choice of laws principles, shall govern the
interpretation of the EULA and all disputes that are subject to this arbitration
provision. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of interpretation and application of
this arbitration provision and the EULA. For any arbitration in which your total
damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, are $5,000.00
or less ("Small Claim"), the arbitrator may, if you prevail, award your reasonable
attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs as part of any award, but may not grant
Samsung its attorney fees, expert witness fees or costs unless it is determined that
the claim was brought in bad faith. In a Small Claim case, you shall be required to
93
pay no more than half of the total administrative, facility and arbitrator fees, or
$50.00 of such fees, whichever is less, and Samsung shall pay the remainder of
such fees. Administrative, facility and arbitrator fees for arbitrations in which your
total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, exceed
$5,000.00 ("Large Claim") shall be determined according to AAA rules. In a Large
Claim case, the arbitrator may grant to the prevailing party, or apportion among the
parties, reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs. Judgment may be
entered on the arbitrator's award in any court of competent jurisdiction. This
arbitration provision also applies to claims against Samsung’s employees,
representatives and affiliates if any such claim arises from the licensing or use of
the Software. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure by providing
notice to Samsung no later than 30 calendar days from the date of the first
consumer purchaser’s purchase of this device. To opt out, you must send notice by
Warranty Information
94
e-mail to optout@sta.samsung.com, with the subject line: "Arbitration Opt Out." You
must include in the opt out e-mail (a) your name and address; (b) the date on which
the device was purchased; (c) the device model name or model number; and (d) the
IMEI or MEID or Serial Number, as applicable, if you have it (the IMEI or MEID or
Serial Number can be found (i) on the device box; (ii) on the device information
screen, which can be found under "Settings;" (iii) on a label on the back of the
device beneath the battery, if the battery is removable; and (iv) on the outside of the
device if the battery is not removable). Alternatively, you may opt out by calling
1-888-987-4357 no later than 30 calendar days from the date of the first consumer
purchaser's purchase of the device and providing the same information. These are
the only two forms of notice that will be effective to opt out of this dispute resolution
95
procedure. Opting out of this dispute resolution procedure will not affect your use of
the device or its preloaded Software, and you will continue to enjoy the benefits of
this license.
