The New Jersey Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act, §56:12-14 et seq, states, in part, as follows: “No seller, lessor, creditor, lender or bailee shall in the course of his business offer to any consumer or prospective consumer or enter into any written consumer contract or give or display any written consumer warranty, notice or sign after the effective date of this act which includes any provision that violates any clearly established legal right of a consumer or responsibility of a seller, lessor, creditor, lender or bailee as established by State or Federal law at the time the offer is made or the consumer contract is signed or the warranty, notice or sign is given or displayed. Consumer means any individual who buys, leases, borrows, or bails any money, property or service which is primarily for personal, family or household purposes.” Therefore, for New Jersey residents, the disclaimer of warranty provision shall apply only as allowable by applicable laws and the limitation of liability provision shall only apply if the New Jersey resident(s)’ use of this Site results in damages or losses resulting from the negligence or misconduct of HMS.
Also, because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states liability shall be allowed in the manner as is permitted by law.
