In that event, any implied warranties are limited in duration to sixty (60) days from the date of purchase of the license for the Software. However, some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

The BrightCar Software and related services or content are designed to operate and provide information with the understanding that BrightCar and its representatives are not engaged in rendering vehicle advice, vehicle maintenance advice, or other professional service. If such advice or other expert assistance is required, the service of a competent professional should be sought.

Limitation of Liability and Damages

The entire liability of BrightCar for any reason shall be limited to the amount paid by the customer for the BrightCar Software licensed from BrightCar or its authorized reseller. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, BrightCar and its representatives are not liable for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages (including, but not limited to: damages for loss of business, loss of profits or investment, or the like), whether based on breach of contract, breach of warranty, tort (including negligence), product liability or otherwise, even if BrightCar or its representatives have been advised of the possibility of such damages, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Third party content providers are not responsible to you for any damages or losses arising from any use of the content. BrightCar and its representatives` total liability to you for actual damages for any cause whatsoever will be limited to the amount paid by you for the BrightCar Software. Some states do not allow the limitation and/or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. The limitations of the damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between BrightCar and you. BrightCar would not have been able to provide the BrightCar Software to you without such limitations.

In addition, in no event does BrightCar authorize you or anyone else to use BrightCar Software in applications or systems where BrightCar Software`s failure to perform can reasonably be expected to result in a significant physical injury, or in loss of property, or in loss of life. Any such use is entirely at your own risk, and you agree to hold BrightCar harmless from any and all claims or losses relating to such unauthorized use.
