INNOVENTIONS hereby specifically acknowledges the scientific fact that memory testers cannot achieve exhaustive tests (that is, 100% accuracy) due to the virtually unlimited possibilities of data combinations which may be stored inside a memory device. Therefore, while INNOVENTIONS continuously strives to improve its test algorithms, it cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the test results. A detailed discussion of RAMCHECK LX's accuracy is available on-line at:
In no event will INNOVENTIONS be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages resulting from any defect in this product. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so exclusions or limitations may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other legal rights, which vary, from state to state.
INNOVENTIONS continuously develops new test programs and test adapters to support new memory types and variants of existing technologies. However, in view of the rapid emergence of new memory technologies, INNOVENTIONS cannot guarantee that the current product will be able to support all future memory devices.
INNOVENTIONS shall not be responsible for any failure to perform due to unforeseen circumstances or to causes beyond INNOVENTIONS' reasonable control. Examples of such causes are acts of God, war, riot, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials. INNOVENTIONS may defer delivery for a period equal to the delay caused by such contingency in the event of shortages for any reason whatsoever. INNOVENTIONS may allocate production among its customers.

In no event shall INNOVENTIONS be liable to Customer or others for special, incidental or consequential damages for breach of any of the provisions of this contract, including without limitation, provisions regarding warranties, guaranties, and indemnities, or based upon any claims, demands, settlements, or lawsuits arising from or in connection with, the Products sold hereunder, such damages including, but not limited to, costs of removal and reinstallation of items, loss of good will, loss of profits, or loss of use.
