DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES

This Limited Warranty is made in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and any implied warranty arising out of course of dealing, performance, custom, usage or trade. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, SHIELD disclaims all liability for loss, injury or damage based upon negligent design, failure to warn, or defects in materials and workmanship for the enclosed SHIELD mouth guard. In the event of injury, this Limited Warranty is the purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy against SHIELD.

If the law of the state in which you are domiciled does not permit a limitation of implied warranties, this limitation may not apply to you. If your state does not allow limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts, the above limitation may not apply to you.

This writing is intended as the final expression of agreement between SHIELD and the original purchaser with respect to warranties. If salespeople made oral statements regarding the warranties of the mouth guard, such oral statements are not warranties, may not be relied on by the original purchaser, and are not part of this Limited Warranty. This writing is the complete statement of the terms of any warranties offered by SHIELD. The purchaser acknowledges no promises, representations or other warranties, except as may expressly be set forth in this writing, have been made by SHIELD, and SHIELD makes no other warranty other than contained in this writing.
