We limit the duration and remedies of all implied warranties, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, to the duration of this limited warranty. 

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. 

Our responsibility for defective products is limited to repair or replacement as set forth in this warranty statement. Neither any performance or other conduct, nor any oral or written information, statement or advice provided by us or any of our suppliers, agents or employees will create a warranty, or in any way increase the scope or duration of this limited warranty.
