In case the product is connected to the emergency response services, Ajax is not in any way responsible for the actions or failure to act of such third party providing emergency response services.
Limitation of liability
Nothing in this Agreement (including anything specified in this “Limitation of Liability” provision) shall attempt to exclude or limit liability that cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS, AJAX DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES FOR ITSELF AND ITS SUPPLIERS ANY LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY), OR OTHERWISE, FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR FOR LOSS OF REVENUE OR PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA, OR OTHER LOSS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SALE, INSTALLATION, MAINTENANCE, USE, PERFORMANCE, FAILURE, OR INTERRUPTION OF THE SOFTWARE OR PRODUCTS, EVEN IF AJAX OR ITS SUPPLIERS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND LIMITS ITS LIABILITY TO REPLACEMENT, REPAIR, OR REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID, AT AJAX’S OPTION. THIS DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES WILL NOT BE AFFECTED IF ANY REMEDY PROVIDED HEREIN FAILS ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
In addition to this Agreement, you may also have other legal rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Some countries, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or the limitation of incidental or consequential damages for certain products supplied to consumers, or the limitation of liability for personal injury, so the above limitations and exclusions may be limited in their application to you. When the implied warranties are not allowed to be excluded in their entirety, they will be limited to the extent and duration of the applicable written warranty. Your specific legal rights may vary depending on local law.
In the event any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the validity, legality, and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired and a valid, legal, and enforceable provision of similar intent and economic impact shall be substituted therefor.
Ajax may send notices to you via email or to a mailing address. Notices will be sent to the address that you registered with Ajax.
All waivers by Ajax will be effective only if in writing. Any waiver or failure by Ajax to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
