Limited Warranties: Disclaimers
COSS does not warrant that the functions contained in this Software will meet your requirements or that the operation of this Software will be uninterrupted or error-free. COSS warrants that provided that Licensee follows the instructions, the Software will perform in a commercially reasonable manner, and substantially as described in the materials provided by COSS to Licensee in connection with the Quote and with the Software. This warranty does not cover problems caused by your acts (or failures to act), the acts of others, or events beyond COSS’s reasonable control. This warranty is given in addition to other rights and remedies you may have under law, including your rights and remedies in accordance with the statutory guarantees under local Consumer Law. COSS does warrant the media on which the Software is furnished to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of delivery to you.
This Limited Warranty covers the Software from the date of installation for the period during which Licensee and COSS (or their permitted successors) are subject to the Implementation and Support Agreement applicable to such Software. In addition, in the event of Termination or if the Parties are no longer subject to a Implementation and Support Agreement, this Limited Warranty shall continue for the longer of one year from the date on which the Software was accepted after installation and configuration by COSS or 30-days from the last received supplement, update, or replacement provided prior to the termination or expiration of this License or the applicable Implementation and Support Agreement.
In addition, COSS warrants in perpetuity that the COSS is the sole owner and title holder of the Software, or is duly authorized by any other owner(s) to license the Software as provided for herein; that it has the right to enter into this Agreement; and that the Software does not and will not violate or infringe upon the intellectual property rights or any other rights of any person, firm, corporation, or other entity.
To the extent permitted by law, any implied warranties, guarantees or conditions (other than of noninfringement and ownership) will continue only during the term of the Limited Warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so these limitations may not apply to you. They also might not apply to you because some countries may not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty, guarantee or condition lasts.
The Limited Warranty is the only direct warranty from COSS under this Agreement. COSS gives no other express warranties, guarantees or conditions. Where allowed by your local laws, COSS hereby excludes all implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. If your local laws give you any implied warranties, guarantees or conditions, despite this exclusion, your remedies are described in the Remedy for Breach of Warranty clause above, to the extent permitted by your local laws.
In the event of a breach of the above Limited Warranty, COSS will update, modify, repair, or replace the Software as soon as practicable at its own expense. If after reasonable efforts, COSS is unable to repair or replace it so that it functions in accordance with the Limited Warranty, COSS will refund the amount paid by Licensee for the Software, as set forth in the Quote. COSS will also update, modify, repair, or replace any supplements, updates and replacement Software at no charge during the term of this Agreement. In order to receive such refund, You must uninstall the Software and return any media and other associated materials to COSS.
IN NO EVENT WILL COSS SYSTEMS INC. BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES, INJURY TO PERSON OR PROPERTY OR ANY OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THIS SOFTWARE EVEN IF COSS OR ITS AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE (S) HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER PARTY. IN NO EVENT SHALL LICENSOR’S LIABILITY HEREUNDER EXCEED AMOUNTS PAID TO LICENSOR BY LICENSEE UNDER THE TERMS OF THE QUOTE.
Licensee may not sublicense, assign or otherwise transfer this License or Software except as expressly provided in this Agreement. Any attempt to otherwise sublicense, assign, or transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder is expressly prohibited and will terminate this Agreement.
This Agreement will be governed under the laws of the State of Connecticut in the United States of America. Any disagreements relating to this license will be adjudicated in the state or Federal Courts within the State of Connecticut, USA.
