6. WARRANTY

Seller warrants its products to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of sixty days from date of shipment by Seller. If within such period any such product shall be proved to Seller’s satisfaction to be so defective, such products shall be repaired or replaced at Seller’s option. Seller’s obligation upon such warranty shall be limited to such repair and replacement and shall be conditioned upon Seller’s receiving written notice of any alleged defect within 10 days after its discovery and at Seller’s option, return of such products or parts to Seller F.O.B. its factory or inspection by Seller at the location of the product or part. This warranty shall not apply to products or parts not manufactured by Seller or to products or parts which shall have been repaired or altered by others than Seller so as, in its judgment, adversely to affect the same, or which shall have been subject to negligence, accident, damaged by circumstances beyond Seller’s control, or improper operation, maintenance or storage or to other than normal use of service. With respect to products and parts not manufactured by Seller, the warranty obligations of Seller shall in all respects conform and be limited to the warranty actually extended to Seller by the supplier.

THE FOREGOING WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILTY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

7. CLAIMS

Expenses incurred in connection with claims for which the Seller is not liable may be charged to the purchaser. No claim for correction will be allowed except for work done with the written consent of the Seller. Defects that do not impair service shall not be a cause for rejection.

No claim will be allowed for material mutilated by the Buyer or damaged in transit.
