Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Addendum, GKF makes no representation or warranty to Hospital concerning the Reload, and GKF shall have no obligation or liability to pay any damages to Hospital resulting therefrom, including, without limitation, any lost revenues or profits during the period of time that the Equipment is unavailable to perform procedures due to the Reload process.
