Disclaimer of warranties

Products manufactured by Dolby are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of purchase. In the case of software, the media on which the software is furnished is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 60 days from the date of purchase. ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, AND OTHER TERMS (WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED) INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THOSE RELATING TO NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PATENT AND COPYRIGHT RIGHTS), SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EXCLUDED.


During the warranty period, Dolby will repair, or at its option replace, components which prove to be defective, provided the product or applicable component is returned, shipped prepaid, to Dolby direct or via an authorized dealer or distributor. Defects caused by modifications, physical damages, misuse, accidents, improper installation, environmental operating conditions, or connectivity (audio, network, or electrical), unauthorized Customer repairs, or any further damage caused by inadequate packaging for service return are not covered by this warranty.

Limitation of liability

DOLBY'S LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, IN TORT, UNDER ANY WARRANTY, IN NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE COST OF REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE DEFECTIVE COMPONENTS OR ACCUSED INFRINGING DEVICES, AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL DOLBY BE LIABLE FOR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGE TO SOFTWARE OR RECORDED AUDIO OR VISUAL MATERIAL), COST OF DEFENSE, OR LOSS OF USE, REVENUE, OR PROFIT, EVEN IF DOLBY OR ITS AGENTS HAVE BEEN ADVISED, ORALLY OR IN WRITING, OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTHING IN THIS CLAUSE SHALL OPERATE OR BE DEEMED TO OPERATE TO EXCLUDE OR LIMIT LIABILITY TO A GREATER EXTENT THAN IS PERMITTED BY LAW. Should any provision contained herein be held to be void, invalid, or inoperative, then such provision and the other related provisions contained herein shall be deemed automatically adjusted to conform to the requirements for validity declared at such time and to, as closely as legally permissible, reflect the original intent of Dolby and Customer. If such provision is of such a nature that it cannot be so adjusted, the provision shall be deemed deleted as though it had never been included herein. In either case, except as set forth above, the remaining provisions shall not be affected.
