Yep, basically if it can't be folded, spindled, and mutilated, and still remain undamaged, then they absolve themselves of all liability for it.

But that won't keep stop them from collecting an insurance premium for something they ave no intention of actually covering in event of damage. Sad, isn't it ?

There's a lengthy, and heated, discussion on this here:
