shipping cost of returning the Products to the Seller.

the SELLER a warranty claim fully describing the alleged defects or failures of the Product and
original proof of purchase within the Warranty Period (defined in Section 4) and within five (5)
days of the date BUYER discovered the alleged defect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the
event that SELLER determines, in its sole discretion, that BUYER reasonably should have
discovered the alleged defect before its actual discovery, this Limited Warranty shall not apply.

information to SELLER, including pictures where applicable, via telephone, email or any other
appropriate means of communication. In the event the defect is covered by the Limited Warranty,

repairing or replacing the Product, at SELLER’s sole discretion, and only if such defect was caused
solely by defective design, workmanship and/or materials. Such repair or replacement shall be
SELLER’s sole obligation and BUYER’s exclusive remedy hereunder, and shall be conditioned
upon BUYER’s fulfilling its obligations under SELLER’s Warranty Claim Procedures.
This Limited Warranty of the Product applies for six (6) months from the date the Product is
delivered to the BUYER (the “Warranty Period”). The Warranty Period shall not be tolled for any
reason. No action by SELLER or BUYER shall operate to extend or revive this Limited Warranty

(6) Damage to Products caused by the carrier during shipping or by the installer during installation;
(7) Deterioration resulting from age, storage, weathering, lack of use;

BUYER’s installation, use, maintenance, and any other activity or inactivity of the BUYER, when
determining whether an alleged Product defect is covered by the Limited Warranty.
This Limited Warranty is provided by SELLER, and it contains the only express warranty provided
to BUYER by SELLER. SELLER does not authorize any other person, including distributors, to
give any other warranties on SELLER's behalf.

ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY, GUARANTY OR REPRESENTATION AS TO
PERFORMANCE, QUALITY AND ABSENCE OF HIDDEN DEFECTS, AND ANY
REMEDY FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, WHICH BUT FOR THIS PROVISION,
MIGHT ARISE BY IMPLICATION, OPERATION OF LAW, CUSTOM OF TRADE OR
COURSE OF DEALING, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Implied warranties in jurisdictions where they may not be disclaimed shall be in effect only for the
duration of the express warranty set forth herein.
If BUYER has a claim under this Limited Warranty or under any implied warranties provided to
BUYER by state law, BUYER may not file a court action based on that claim any later than one (1)
year after BUYER’s right to file a court action accrues. In those states which do not allow this
limitation on the time period for filing a court action, this provision is inapplicable.
SELLER’s liability with respect to the Product sold to BUYER shall be limited to the warranty
provided herein. SELLER SHALL NOT BE SUBJECT TO ANY OTHER OBLIGATIONS OR
LIABILITIES, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF BREACH OF CONTRACT, WARRANTY,
TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY) OR OTHER THEORIES OF
LAW, WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCTS SOLD OR SERVICES RENDERED BY SELLER, OR
ANY UNDERTAKING, ACTS OR OMISSIONS RELATING THERETO.

PROPERTY OR PERSONAL INJURY DAMAGES, PENALTIES, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE
DAMAGES, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES, SERVICES, DOWN TIME,
SHUT DOWN OR SLOW DOWN COSTS, OR FOR ANY OTHER TYPES OF ECONOMIC

SUCH DAMAGES. SELLER SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ALL
CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL AND CONTINGENT DAMAGES WHATSOEVER. THE
SELLER’S TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCT
SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE VALUE OF THE PRODUCT SOLD TO BUYER.

agents, specifications, samples, models, bulletins, drawings, diagrams or similar materials used in
connection with BUYER’s order, are for the sole purpose of identifying the Product and shall not be

We offer you the following choices with regard to the information we collect through the Platform:
You may opt out of receiving marketing e-mails by following the opt-out instructions provided to you in

their personal information has been shared during the calendar year with third parties for those thirdparties’
own direct marketing purposes, unless the business permits California residents to opt in to, or
opt out of, this type of sharing. As noted above, we will not share personal information about you with
third parties for their own direct marketing purposes if you do not opt-in, or if you choose to opt-out, at
the time MPC Clamps offers you that choice.
