Vary the information required under s. 620.1111 or unreasonably restrict the right to information under s. 620.1304 or s. 620.1407, but the partnership agreement may impose reasonable restrictions on the availability and use of information obtained under those sections and may define appropriate remedies, including liquidated damages, for a breach of any reasonable restriction on use;

Eliminate the obligation of good faith and fair dealing under ss. 620.1305(2) and 620.1408(4), but the partnership agreement may prescribe the standards by which the performance of the obligation is to be measured, if the standards are not manifestly unreasonable;
