if the seller has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The price stated for the equipment is a consideration in limiting Hayward's liability and Buyer's remedy. Some states do not allow exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to Buyer.
