However, Netrounds does not warrant the Software or any portion thereof is error free. The date of shipment of a Product by Netrounds is set forth on the packaging material in which the Product is shipped.
Except for the foregoing, the Software is provided “AS IS” (the “Limited Warranty”) and no other warranties are expressed or implied, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.
This Limited Warranty extends only to the Software purchased from an Approved Source by you and provided that you are the first registered end user. Your sole and exclusive remedy and the entire liability of Netrounds and its suppliers under this Limited Warranty will be (i) replacement of defective media and/or (ii) at Netrounds’ option, repair, replacement, or refund of the purchase price of the Software, in both cases subject to the condition that any error or defect constituting a breach of this Limited Warranty is reported to the Approved Source supplying the Software to you, within the warranty period.
Netrounds or the Approved Source supplying the Software to you may, at its option, require return of the Software and/or Documentation as a condition to the remedy. In no event does Netrounds warrant that the Software is error free or that you will be able to operate the Software without problems or interruptions. In addition, due to the continual development of new techniques for intruding upon and attacking networks, Netrounds does not warrant that the Software or any equipment, system or network on which the Software is used will be free of vulnerability to intrusion or attack.
Limitation of Warranty
This Limited Warranty does not apply if the Software, Product or any other equipment upon which the Software is authorized to be used (i) has been altered, except by Netrounds or its authorized representative, (ii) has not been installed, operated, repaired, or maintained in accordance with instructions supplied by Netrounds, (iii) has been subjected to abnormal physical or electrical stress, abnormal environmental conditions, misuse, negligence, or accident; or (iv) is licensed for beta, evaluation, testing or demonstration purposes.
The Software warranty also does not apply to (i) any temporary Software modules; (ii) any Software that Netrounds solely provides on an “AS IS” basis, i.e., for the avoidance of doubt, without the Limited Warranty; (iii) any Software for which an Approved Source does not receive a License Fee; and (iv) Software supplied by any third party which is not an Approved Source.
YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY
Except for any refund elected by Netrounds, you are not entitled to any damages including but not limited to incidental or consequential damages, special or indirect (such as loss of profit, loss of data, loss of goodwill), arising out of or in any way related to the use of or inability to use the Software, the provisions of or failure to provide Support, malfunction due to implementation of any Solution or otherwise under or in connection with any provision of the Agreement.
Netrounds’ and its partners’ entire liability and your exclusive remedy shall be, at Netrounds’ option from time to time, (i) return of the price paid (if any) for the Software, or (ii) repair or replacement of the Software that does not meet the Limited Warranty set forth in Section 7 and that is returned to Netrounds with a copy of your receipt. You will receive the remedy elected by Netrounds without charge, except that you are responsible for any expenses you may incur. This Limited Warranty is void if failure of the Software has resulted from accident, abuse, misapplication, abnormal use, or a computer or software virus.
Neither these remedies nor any Support services offered by Netrounds are available without proof of purchase from Netrounds directly or an Approved Source.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
The Limited Warranty set forth in Section 7 is the only express warranty made to you and is provided in lieu of any other express warranties (if any) created by any documentation or packaging. Except for the Limited Warranty and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Netrounds and its partners provide the Software on an as is basis with all faults and hereby disclaims all other warranties and conditions, either express, implied or statutory, including, but not limited to, any (if any) implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, of fitness for a particular purpose, of lack of viruses, of accuracy or completeness of responses, of results, and of lack of negligence or lack of workmanlike effort, all with regard to the Software and the provision of or failure to provide Support services. Further, there is no warranty or condition of title or non-infringement with regard to the Software.
Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement to the contrary, all liability of Netrounds, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers and licensors collectively, to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of warranty or otherwise, shall not exceed the price paid by you to any Approved Source for the Software that gave rise to the claim or if the Software is part of another product, the price paid for Netrounds as part of such other product. This limitation of liability for Software is cumulative and not per incident (i.e. the existence of two or more claims will not enlarge this limit).
Nothing in this Agreement shall limit (i) the liability of Netrounds, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers and licensors to you for personal injury or death caused by their negligence, (ii) Netrounds’ liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, or (iii) any liability of Netrounds which cannot be excluded under applicable law.
In no event will Netrounds or its suppliers be liable for any lost revenue, profit, or lost or damaged data, business interruption, loss of capital, or for special, indirect, consequential, incidental, or punitive damages however caused and regardless of the theory of liability or whether arising out of the use of or inability to use software or otherwise and even if Netrounds or its suppliers or licensors have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
You acknowledge and agree that Netrounds has set its prices and entered into the Agreement in reliance upon the Disclaimers of Warranty and the Limitations of Liability set forth herein, that the same reflect an allocation of risk between the parties (including the risk that a contract remedy may fail of its essential purpose and cause consequential loss), and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties.

You will indemnify, defend, and hold Netrounds and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, and third-party service providers harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, causes of action, debts or liabilities (including attorneys’ fees and expenses) that arise from or relate to (i) your access or use of the Software, (ii) any content that you upload, download, store, display, transmit, or distribute through the Software, (iii) your breach of this Agreement, or (iv) any action that Netrounds takes as part of its investigation or cooperation with law enforcement officials or other appropriate authorities regarding suspected inappropriate or illegal activity enabled or carried out through the Software.
