14.1 Limited Warranty for Users Residing in the EU. If you obtained the Software in the European Union (EU), you usually reside in the EU and you are a consumer (that is you use the Software for personal, non-business related purposes), then Section 7 does not apply to your purchase and use of the Software. Instead, Adobe warrants for a period of 2 years from purchase that the Software provides the functionalities set forth in the Documentation (the "agreed upon functionalities") when used on the recommended hardware configuration. Non-substantial variation from the agreed upon functionalities will not establish any warranty rights.  This limited warranty does not apply to SOFTWARE provided TO YOU free of charge, for example, UPDATES, pre-release, tryout, product sampler, NOT FOR RESALE (NFR) COPIES OF SOFTWARE, OR SOFTWARE THAT HAS BEEN ALTERED BY YOU, TO THE EXTENT SUCH ALTERATIONS CAUSED A DEFECT. To make a warranty claim, you must notify the Adobe Customer Support Department during this 2 year period, providing details of proof of purchase of the Software. Adobe will verify with you whether there is a defect in the Software or advise you that the error arises because you have not installed the Software correctly (in which case, Adobe shall assist you). If there is a defect in the Software, you may request from Adobe either a refund or a repaired or replacement copy of the Software. Requests must be accompanied by proof of purchase. In the event your warranty details are substantiated, Adobe will meet your request for repaired or replacement Software, unless it is not reasonable for Adobe to do so, in which case Adobe will provide you with a refund. For warranty assistance, please contact the Adobe Customer Support Department.

Please note that the provisions of Section 8 (Limitation of Liability) will continue to apply to any damages claims you make in respect of your use of the Software. Nonetheless, Adobe shall be liable for direct losses that are reasonably foreseeable in the event of a breach by Adobe of this agreement. You are advised to take all reasonable measures to avoid and reduce damages, in particular by making back-up copies of the Software and your computer data.  This agreement, and in particular, this Section 14.1, is intended to describe your rights  (including your statutory rights) in the event there should be problems with your use of the Software. If your statutory rights are greater than this description, your statutory rights shall apply.

14.2 Pre-release Product Additional Terms. If the product You have received with this license is a pre-commercial release or beta Software ("Pre-release Software"), then the following Section applies. To the extent that any provision in this Section is in conflict with any other term(s) or condition(s) in this Agreement, this Section shall supersede such other term(s) and condition(s) with respect to the Pre-release Software, but only to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict. You acknowledge that the Software is a pre-release version, does not represent final product from Adobe, and may contain bugs, errors and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. Consequently, the Pre-release Software is provided to You "AS-IS", and Adobe disclaims any warranty or liability obligations to You of any kind. WHERE LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED FOR PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE, BUT IT MAY BE LIMITED, ADOBE'S LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE SUM OF FIFTY DOLLARS (U.S. $50) IN TOTAL. You acknowledge that Adobe has not promised or guaranteed to You that Pre-release Software will be announced or made available to anyone in the future, Adobe has no express or implied obligation to You to announce or introduce the Pre-release Software and that Adobe may not introduce a product similar to or compatible with the Pre-release Software.

During the term of this Agreement, if requested by Adobe, You will provide feedback to Adobe regarding testing and use of the Pre-release Software, including error or bug reports. If You have been provided the Pre-release Software pursuant to a separate written agreement, such as the Adobe Systems Incorporated Serial Agreement for Unreleased Products, Your Use of the Software is also governed by such agreement. You agree that You may not and certify that You will not sublicense, lease, loan, rent, assign, or transfer the Pre-release Software. Upon receipt of a later unreleased version of the Pre-release Software or release by Adobe of a publicly released commercial version of the Software, whether as a stand-alone product or as part of a larger product, You agree to return or destroy all earlier Pre-release Software received from Adobe and to abide by the terms of the license agreement for any such later versions of the Pre-release Software. Notwithstanding anything in this Section to the contrary, if You are located outside the United States of America, You agree that You will return or destroy all unreleased versions of the Pre-release Software within thirty (30) days of the completion of Your testing of the Software when such date is earlier than the date for Adobe's first commercial shipment of the publicly released (commercial) Software.
