THIS LIMITED WARRANTY APPLIES ONLY TO DEFECTS IN MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP

REMEDIES AND LIMITATIONS: Your sole remedy under this Limited Warranty Agreement shall be the replacement of the Rail/Components as set forth above. We will not install the replacement material. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, CENTAUR EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESSED WARRANTIES EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH HEREIN AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CENTAUR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM A BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY, ANY OTHER EXPRESSED WARRANTY OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY. IF THE LAW DOES NOT PERMIT THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, CENTAUR HEREBY LIMITS THE DURATION OF ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TO THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THE FENCE WAS DELIVERED TO YOU.

If, notwithstanding the above provision, there should arise any liability on the part of Centaur for implied warranties of any nature or for express warranties other than as set forth herein or for any act or omission of Centaur or its agents or employees, such liability shall be limited to an amount equal to Two Hundred Fifty and no/100 Dollars ($250.00).

Such liability is fixed as total damages and not as a penalty and this liability shall be complete and exclusive. The provisions of this paragraph shall apply to all loss or damage of whatever nature arising from any act, omission, representation, warranty, agreement of Centaur, its agents or employees, including, but not limited to, loss to personal property and/or livestock or cattle.

Therefore, you agree to this damages clause if, notwithstanding the provisions hereinabove, there should arise any liability on Centaur other than expressly set forth in this Limited Warranty. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
