Swatch makes no warranties or representations about any non-Swatch website and has no responsibility or liable to you for such websites or their content. In addition, certain third party sites may also provide links to Swatch websites. None of such links should be deemed to imply that Swatch endorses such third party websites or any content therein.

Swatch and the swatch group do not make any warranties or representations regarding the use of the content and materials on this site in terms of their completeness, correctness, accuracy, adequacy, usefulness, timeliness, reliability or otherwise. In certain jurisdictions, the law may not permit the disclaimer of warranties, so the above disclaimer may not apply to you.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
You acknowledge and agree that: (i) you assume full responsibility for your use of the site(ii) any information you send or receive during your use of the site may not be secure and may be intercepted by unauthorized parties; (iii) your use of the site is at your own risk; and (iv) the site is made available to you at no charge. Recognizing such, you acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the indemnified parties shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, exemplary, incidental, special, consequential or other damages arising out of or in any way related to the site, or any other site you access through a link or conduit from this site or from any actions we take or fail to take as a result of communications you send to us, or the delay or inability to use the site, or for any information, products or services advertised in or obtained through the site, swatch’s removal or deletion of any materials submitted or posted on its site, or otherwise arising out of the use of the site, whether based on contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, even if the indemnified parties have been advised of the possibility of damages. This disclaimer applies, without limitation, to any damages or injury arising from any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defects, delay in operation or transmission, computer viruses, file corruption, communication-line failure, network or system outage, your loss of profits, or theft, destruction, unauthorized access to, alteration of, loss or use of any record or data, and any other tangible or intangible loss.

You and swatch agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the site must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues or the cause of action is permanently barred. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, all or a portion of the above limitation may not apply to you.
