The Legal Stuff
How consumer law relates to this warranty
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights that vary from state to state (or by country or province). Other than as permitted by law, BlackWolf does not exclude, limit or suspend other rights you may have, including those that may arise from the nonconformity of a sales contract. For a full understanding of your rights you should consult the laws of your country, province or state.
Warranty limitations subject to consumer law
To the extent permitted by law, this warranty and the remedies set forth are exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, remedies and conditions, whether oral, written, statutory, express or implied. BlackWolf disclaims all statutory and implied warranties, including without limitation, warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose and warranties against hidden or latent defects, to the extent permitted by law. In so far as such warranties cannot be disclaimed, BlackWolf limits the duration and remedies of such warranties to the duration of this express warranty and, at BlackWolf's option, the repair or replacement services described below. Some states (countries and provinces) do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty (or condition) may last, so the limitation described above may not apply to you.

A replacement part or product, including a user-installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by BlackWolf, assumes the remaining warranty of the BlackWolf product or ninety (90) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you.
