DIGISTAMP does not warrant the accuracy of any product resold, loaned, leased or otherwise transferred by YOU.  YOU hereby acknowledge that the SOFTWARE PRODUCT is not fault tolerant; is not designed, manufactured or intended for the use in any applications not specifically covered by the terms of this EULA or the appropriate Documentation; and should not be used as a time source for real-time or life-endangering applications. 

Section 4.04        PROTECTION OF YOUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. 

DIGISTAMP makes no warranty of any kind that USE of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT in any manner guarantees or completely assures the legitimacy of any of YOUR intellectual property, proprietary information, data or any trade secret, patent, trademark or copyright.  The SOFTWARE PRODUCT is merely intended to assign a date and time record to the creation of any timestamped material.  In the event YOU USE the SOFTWARE PRODUCT as a means of protecting YOUR intellectual property or any other legal rights, DIGISTAMP shall not be obligated to defend, in any manner, the SOFTWARE PRODUCT, or the techniques and/or expertise associated with the SOFTWARE PRODUCT unless the Parties agree otherwise in writing.

Section 4.05        APPLICATION OF LOCAL LAW. 

Some local laws may not recognize the veracity and admissibility of digital timestamp to prove the existence of digital content before a certain point-in-time. It is YOUR responsibility to determine whether the applicable law in the locale in which YOU intend to USE the SOFTWARE PRODUCT will recognize this digital timestamp.    

Section 4.06        SECURITY.

 Despite the fact that the SOFTWARE PRODUCT uses U.S. government certified equipment that is highly-secure and that uses a 2,048 bit encryption system, the Parties hereto agree that DIGISTAMP shall not be held liable for the failure of any of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT’S security measures or the compromising of the system by any third party without regard to the extent of the damage suffered by YOU as a result.

Section 4.07        NO OTHER WARRANTIES. 

THE LIMITED WARRANTIES PROVIDED IN SECTION 1 ABOVE ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND CONSTITUTE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES OF DIGISTAMP WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT AND SUPPORT SERVICES.  DIGISTAMP SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, AND YOU RELEASE AND WAIVE, ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR ANY WARRANTY ARISING UNDER STATUTE OR OTHERWISE IN LAW OR FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE.  EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY WARRANTED IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT AND SUPPORT SERVICES (IF ANY) ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.”  DIGISTAMP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT IS ERROR FREE, THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO OPERATE THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT WITHOUT PROBLEMS OR INTERRUPTIONS, OR THAT THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT IS NOT SUSCEPTIBLE TO INTRUSION, ATTACK OR COMPUTER VIRUS INFECTION.  DIGISTAMP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT WILL OPERATE IN ANY COMBINATION WHICH MAY BE SELECTED BY YOU, OR THAT ANY DEFECTS THAT MAY EXIST IN THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT WILL BE CORRECTED.  YOU SHALL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SELECTION, USE AND SUITABILITY OF THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT.  DIGISTAMP MAKES NO WARRANTY, AND YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE RISK, AS TO THE INTEGRITY OF THE RESULTS, CAPABILITIES, SUITABILITY, USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT.  IN NO EVENT SHALL DIGISTAMP BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM OR RELATED TO THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT.

Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to YOU.  The limited warranty provided herein gives YOU specific legal rights, and YOU may also have other legal rights, which vary from state to state. 

Section 4.08        LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND REMEDY. 

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall DIGISTAMP or its suppliers be liable for any special, incidental, punitive, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profits, loss of savings, loss or inaccuracy or corruption of data, business interruption, loss of business or personal information, or any other pecuniary loss) arising out of the USE of or inability to USE the SOFTWARE PRODUCT or the provision of or failure to provide SUPPORT SERVICES, even if DIGISTAMP has been advised of the possibility of such damages.  This limitation applies whether damages are sought, or a claim made, under this EULA or as a tort claim (including negligence and strict product liability), a contract claim, or any other claim.  This limitation cannot be waived or amended by any person.  In any case, DIGISTAMP’s entire liability under any provision of this EULA shall be limited to the greater of the amount actually paid by YOU for the SOFTWARE PRODUCT or U.S.$5.00; provided, however, that if YOU enter into a DIGISTAMP SUPPORT SERVICES Agreement, DIGISTAMP’s entire liability regarding SUPPORT SERVICES shall be governed by the terms of that agreement.  Because some states and jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability, the above limitation may not apply to YOU.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT DIGISTAMP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR, HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, OR OTHER ITEMS OR ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANY PERSONS OTHER THAN DIGISTAMP.
