(A) Except as otherwise provided in sections 1310.01 to 1310.78 of the Revised Code, the lease agreement may include rights and remedies for default in addition to or in substitution for those provided in sections 1310.01 to 1310.78 of the Revised Code and may limit or alter the measure of damages recoverable under those sections.
(B) Resort to a remedy provided under sections 1310.01 to 1310.78 of the Revised Code or in the lease agreement is optional unless the remedy is expressly agreed to be exclusive. If circumstances cause an exclusive or limited remedy to fail of its essential purpose or if a provision for an exclusive remedy is unconscionable, remedy may be had as provided in sections 1310.01 to 1310.78 of the Revised Code.
(C) Consequential damages may be liquidated under section 1310.50 of the Revised Code, or may otherwise be limited, altered, or excluded unless the limitation, alteration, or exclusion is unconscionable, limitation, alteration, or exclusion of consequential damages for injury to the person in the case of consumer goods is prima facie unconscionable, but limitation, alteration, or exclusion of damages, if the loss is commercial, is not prima facie unconscionable.
(D) Rights and remedies on default by the lessor or the lessee with respect to any obligation or promise collateral or ancillary to the lease contract are not impaired by sections 1310.01 to 1310.78 of the Revised Code.
