If an implied warranty or condition is created by your state/jurisdiction and federal or state/provincial law prohibits disclaimer of it, you also have an implied warranty or condition, BUT ONLY AS TO DEFECTS DISCOVERED DURING THE PERIOD OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY (NINETY DAYS). AS TO ANY DEFECTS DISCOVERED AFTER THE NINETY DAY PERIOD, THERE IS NO WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty or condition lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. Any upgrades, updates, supplements, modifications, enhancements, add-on components to the Software, including without limitation, any (if any) service packs or hot fixes provided to you after the expiration of the ninety day Limited Warranty period are provided “AS IS” and are not covered by any warranty or condition, express, implied or statutory.
17.2 LIMITATION ON REMEDIES; NO CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES. Your exclusive remedy for any breach of this Limited Warranty is as set forth below. Except for any refund elected by KeepVault, YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, if the Software does not meet KeepVault's Limited Warranty, even if any remedy fails of its essential purpose. The terms of Section 19 ('Exclusion of Incidental, Consequential and Certain Other Damages') are also incorporated into this Limited Warranty. This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
17.3 YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. KeepVault's and its suppliers' entire liability and your exclusive remedy for any breach of this Limited Warranty shall be, at KeepVault's option from time to time exercised (subject to applicable law), (a) return of the amount paid (if any) for the Software, or (b) repair or replacement of the Software. In each case these remedies are limited to the Software that does not meet this Limited Warranty. You will receive the remedy elected by KeepVault without charge, except that you are responsible for any expenses you may incur (e.g. the cost of shipping the Software to KeepVault). This Limited Warranty is void if failure of the Software has resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, abnormal use or a virus. Any replacement Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days, whichever time frame is longer, and KeepVault will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide your remedy within a commercially reasonable time of your compliance with KeepVault's warranty remedy procedures.

The Limited Warranty that appears above is the only express warranty made to you and is provided in lieu of any other express warranties or similar obligations (if any) created by any advertising, documentation, packaging, or other communications. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, KEEPVAULT AND ITS SUPPLIERS PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE AND SUPPORT SERVICES (IF ANY) “AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS, AND HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, RELIABILITY, ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, WORKMANLIKE EFFORT, SATISFACTORY QUALITY AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, all with regard to the Software and the provision of or failure to provide support or other services, or otherwise arising out of the use of the Software.
