If Licensee fails to give Licensor notice of any nonconformance in accordance with this clause 4.1 and the failure causes further deterioration in the performance of the program, Licensor shall not have any obligation to correct the nonconformance. Licensor's warranty obligations shall be void if the program is modified without the written consent of Licensor.
