LUCIS MAKES NO GUARANTEE OF THE AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY, OR TIMELINES OF WEATHER INFORMATION USED IN NUBRYTE’S WEATHER UPDATES FEATURE. DO NOT RELY ON NUBRYTE’S WEATHER FEATURE AS YOUR SOLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION RE GARDING POSSIBLE HAZARDOUS WEATHER CONDITIONS. LUCIS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY BODILY INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE CAUSED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BY WEATHER CONDITIONS OR RELATED EFFECTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FLOODS, MUDSLIDES, OR GROUND SUBSIDENCE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER LUCIS’S WEATHER UPDATE FEATURE INFORMED YOU OF SUCH WEATHER CONDITIONS.
NUBRYTE’S FUNCTIONALITY DEPENDS ON FOLLOWING ALL DIRECTIONS FOR THE PROPER INSTALLATION OF THE DEVICE. IF YOU DO NOT INSTALL THE DEVICE PROPERLY, IT MAY NOT WORK OR PERFORM ALL OF NUBRYTE’S FUNCTIONS.
16. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WHATSOEVER SHALL LUCIS OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME, PERSONAL PROPERTY, DATA, SOFTWARE, OR NETWORKS, OR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, OR LOST SAVINGS, OR THE COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE SERVICES, EVEN IF LUCIS OR ONE OF ITS LICENSORS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OR LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES.
