6. Disclaimer of Warranties
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE DESIGN FILE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND STRIPE AND STRIPE’S LICENSORS HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE DESIGN FILE, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS. STRIPE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE DESIGN FILE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT ACCESSORIES MANUFACTURED USING THE DESIGN FILE WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH OR NOT IMPEDE THE OPERATION OF THE STRIPE TERMINAL PRODUCTS, THAT THE DESIGN FILE WILL BE ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE DESIGN FILE WILL BE CORRECTED. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on certain statutory rights, so some or all of the above exclusion and limitations may not apply to you.
7. Limitation of Liability
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL STRIPE OR ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, OR PRINCIPALS BE LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJURY, LOST PROFITS, OR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR FAILURE TO TRANSMIT OR RECEIVE ANY DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE DESIGN FILE, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF STRIPE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL STRIPE’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES (OTHER THAN AS MAY BE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN CASES INVOLVING PERSONAL INJURY) EXCEED $100.00 USD. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8 WILL APPLY EVEN IF THE ABOVE STATED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for personal injury, or of incidental or consequential damages, so part or all of this limitation may not apply to you.
8.1 Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Venue: This License will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without reference to rules governing choice of law.

The rights and remedies of the parties under this License are cumulative, and either party may enforce any of its rights or remedies under this License, along with all other rights and remedies available to it under law or in equity. No provision of this License will be construed against any party on the basis of that party being the drafter. The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this License will not constitute a waiver of that party’s rights to subsequently enforce the provision. This License constitutes the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the Terminal Device Software and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous understandings.
