Agreement. Any replacement Software will be warranted for the
remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days,
whichever is longer. This warranty allocates risks of product
failure between Licensee and ID. ID's product pricing reflects this
allocation of risk and the limitations of liability contained in

EVEN IF ID OR ITS AGENT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER PARTY. Some jurisdictions do
not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

of this Agreement, YOUR LICENSE IS AUTOMATICALLY TERMINATED.
