THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE
EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED
TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY,
NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR

WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied
warranty lasts and some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or
limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives
