The liability of Cartier is limited solely and exclusively to replacement as stated herein.
Cartier shall not be liable, by virtue of this Limited Warranty or otherwise, for any loss or damage arising from the use of or inability to use your writing instrument or for any incidental or consequential damages relating in any way to your writing instrument.
Some States, Provinces or Territories do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
