No board international agent or employee is authorized to make any modifications, extensions, or additions to this warranty.

If any modification is made to the Software or Documentation by you during the warranty period; if the media is subjected to accident, abuse, or improper use; or if you violate the terms of this Agreement, then this warranty shall immediately be voided.

This limitation of liability shall not apply to liability for death or personal injury to the extent applicable law prohibits such limitation.
