TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE.
UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY STATEMENTS OR
REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR
FIRM ARE VOID. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS
WRITTEN WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC.,

SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES,
RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE

SOFTWARE, WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF
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
