A bona fide error shall include, but not be limited to, clerical, calculation, computer malfunction and programming, and printing errors.

(2) A lessor shall not be liable under the act for any act done or omitted in good faith in conformity with any rule, regulation, or interpretation issued, adopted, or promulgated by the Attorney General, by the department, or by an official duly authorized by the Attorney General or the department even if after the act or omission has occurred the rule, regulation, or interpretation is amended, rescinded, or determined by judicial or other authority to be invalid for any reason.

(3) With respect to the dollar amount of any disclosure required by the act, a lessor shall not be liable if the dollar amount actually disclosed is greater than the dollar amount required to be disclosed by the act.
