Nothing in this Agreement is intended to or shall be construed as excluding or modifying any statutory rights, warranties or conditions which may be applicable to this Agreement, or the Software or Services, and which by virtue of any applicable national, state, or provincial fair trade or other consumer legislation may not be modified or excluded. To the extent such legislation is applicable to Your license of the Software or Services, or is required by such legislation, any required warranty (hereinafter a “Required Warranty”) is limited in duration to ninety (90) days from the date of installation and AJ Tek and its suppliers’ liability for any breach of any such warranty or condition shall be and is hereby limited to either: (a) the replacement of such Software or Services; or (b) the correction of any defect in such Software, Services, or documentation which may be provided with them as AJ Tek, at its sole discretion, may determine to be necessary to correct the defect.

AJ Tek shall have the right to inspect and test the Software and Services to determine, in its reasonable opinion, whether the nonconformity is its responsibility to remedy. All such Required Warranties are void if failure of the Software or Services has resulted from Acts of God, accident, abuse, misapplication, modification of the software by You or Your agents, electrical surge, or any other cause beyond AJ Tek’s control.

AJ Tek does not warrant or represent that the Software or Services are secure or free from bugs, viruses, errors, or other programming limitations, or is immune from fraudulent or unauthorized intrusion or use (including its use to interconnect to long distance networks, computer virus and/or other malicious code of whatever nature). The Software has risks inherent to all software applications and, as such to the extent permitted by law or AJ Tek’s contractual obligations, AJ Tek disclaims and will not be liable for any loss, damage, injury or non-performance, cost or expense directly or indirectly occasioned thereby.
8.6 Allocation Of Risk
Provisions of this Agreement such as the warranty limitations, exclusive remedies, and limitations of liability are unrelated, independent allocations of risks between You and AJ Tek.
