If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
7. Transfer of Title From Seller to Buyer. We do not transfer legal ownership of Items from the seller to the buyer. Nothing in these Terms shall modify the governing provisions of Florida’s Uniform Commercial Code, under which legal ownership of an Item is transferred upon physical delivery of the Item to the buyer by the seller. Unless the buyer and the seller agree otherwise, the buyer will become the Item’s lawful owner upon physical receipt of the Item from the seller, in accordance with governing law cited above.
