Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion and/or limitation of liability in certain circumstances, including but not limited to, exclusion of implied warranties, limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, limitation of liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence, or limitation of liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to You.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
