EXCEPT FOR THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY, THE CHANK COMPANY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL THE CHANK COMPANY BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE (I) FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF THE CHANK COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR (II) FOR ANY CLAIM AGAINST YOU BY ANY THIRD PARTY SEEKING SUCH DAMAGES EVEN IF THE CHANK COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. In connection with sales to consumers, some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusions of limitations of incidental, consequential or special damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. Also, in connection with sales to consumers, some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusions of implied warranties or limitations on how long an implied warranty may last, so the above limitations may not apply to you. To the greatest extent permitted by law, any implied warranties not effectively excluded by the License are limited to ninety (90) days. In connection with sales to consumers only, some jurisdictions do not permit a limitation of implied warranties where the product results in physical injury or death so that such limitations may not apply to you. In those jurisdictions, you agree that The Chank Company’s liability for such physical injury or death shall not exceed One Hundred Thousand Dollars (U.S. $100,000) or the refund of the license fee, which ever is less, provided that such jurisdictions permit a limitation of such liability. This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may have other rights that vary from state to state or jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The Software is non-returnable and nonrefundable.

All disputes related to or arising out of this Agreement shall be heard in the local, state or Federal District Court of Chank’s choosing, which may include but shall not be limited to, the Circuit Court of Hennepin County, Minnesota, U.S.A. or the United States District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. Both you and The Chank Company agree to the personal jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any action or dispute arising out of or related to this license agreement and hereby waive any jurisdictional or venue defenses and agree to service of process by mail. The license will not be governed by the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
