6.1 No Warranty.
The Software is provided “as is” without warranty or condition of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, the implied warranties or conditions of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or durability and the warranty against infringement. KLST does not warrant that use of the Software will be error-free or that use of the Software will meet the Licensee’s needs. The Licensee represents that (a) it has the requisite expertise to evaluate the suitability of the Software and that the Licensee has in fact undertaken its own investigation of the suitability of the Software for the Licensee’s purposes; and (b) it has relied upon its own skill and judgment in selecting the Software for the Licensee’s purposes in accordance with and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.

NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY KLST, ITS RESELLERS AND/OR ITS OR THEIR AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES, SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE OR MODIFY THE SCOPE OF THE WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN. If Licensee’s legal jurisdiction provides that a certain implied warranty may not be disclaimed, such implied warranty shall only apply to defects discovered during the period of the express Software Warranty Period provided herein. There is no implied warranty for defects discovered after the expiration of such Software Warranty Period. Some legal jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so these limitations may not apply to Licensee.
(b) KLST DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL MEET ALL REQUIREMENTS OF LICENSEE, OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT ALL SOFTWARE DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED. FURTHER, KLST IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DEFECT OR ERROR RESULTING FROM: (I) THE MODIFICATION, MISUSE OR DAMAGE OF THE SOFTWARE BY PARTIES OTHER THAN KLST OR PARTIES PERFORMING AS A CONTRACTOR TO, AND AT THE DIRECTION OF, KLST, (II) LICENSEE’S FAILURE TO IMPLEMENT ALL BUG FIXES OR OTHER DEFECT CORRECTIONS WHICH ARE MADE AVAILABLE BY KLST, (III) USE OF THE SOFTWARE IN A MANNER INCONSISTENT WITH THE DIRECTIONS PROVIDED IN THE DOCUMENTATION OR AS PERMITTED BY THIS AGREEMENT, (IV) ANY COMPUTER VIRUS OR (V) ANY DEFECT IN OR FAILURE OF ANY THIRD PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL COMPUTER, EQUIPMENT, NETWORK OR SOFTWARE, OR FOR ANY USER ERROR.

THE LIMITATIONS HEREIN SHALL APPLY EVEN IF THE SOFTWARE WARRANTY REMEDY DOES NOT FULLY COMPENSATE LICENSEE FOR ANY OR ALL LOSSES, OR IF KLST KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. SOME LEGAL JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO LICENSEE IF LICENSEE RESIDES IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS.
