Article 5 Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability
You shall use the System at your sole risk. No Information or advice provided by Nintendo creates a warranty. The System is provided on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind. To the greatest extent permitted by law, Nintendo disclaims any and all warranties with respect to the System, express or implied, including, without limitation, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Nintendo shall assume liability for damages caused by reasons attributable to Nintendo (except for any incidental, special, consequential, exemplary, indirect or punitive damages); provided, however, that except in cases of willful misconduct or gross negligence by Nintendo and to the greatest extent permitted by law, Nintendo will not be liable for any damages incurred by you or a third party beyond the extent normally expected in connection to your access, use, misuse, or inability to use the System or data on the System, or termination or cancellation of this Agreement, even if Nintendo has expected the possibility of such disadvantage or damages. In any event, Nintendo's aggregate liability to you in connection with any claims arising out of or relating to the system is limited to the amount you actually paid for the System, except in cases of willful misconduct or gross negligence by Nintendo and to the greatest extent permitted by law. If a law restricts our ability to limit liability or disclaim warranties, the limitations listed above may not apply to you. In that case, we limit our liability and disclaim warranties to the greatest extent permitted by law. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Agreement shall exclude or restrict Nintendo's liability for death or personal injury resulting from Nintendo's negligence.
