Equipment Warranty: Clover warrants that all New Surplus and De-Installed Products, when stored, installed and used under normal conditions, will function to the original manufacturers' written specifications for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of purchase. Clover’s warranty does not cover misuse and/or damage due to improper installation and/or operation of the Products. Clover provides no warranty for new or refurbished Products other than such warranty that may be provided directly by the Original equipment manufacturer or the refurbisher.
Repair Services Warranty: Clover warrants to you that the components used to repair or replace a Product will be free from substantial defect in material and workmanship under normal use given proper installation and maintenance for the warranty period referenced on the first page of this Quote.
Warranty Remedies: If within the applicable warranty period you discover that warrantied Products are not functioning in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications, or if any Products that are damaged on arrival (“DOA”), you must contact your Clover sales representative and request a Return Materials Authorization (“RMA”). Once an RMA is issued, Clover will do one of the following at its sole option: 1) repair the Products, 2) replace the Products, or 3) issue a refund or credit memo. For an RMA to be honored for DOA Product, the Product must be returned to Clover in the same condition and packaging in which it was received by you. Clover affixes its own specific tamper proof reference label to each Product sold for warranty administration. Should you remove or tamper with Clover’s label, the RMA will not be honored. All costs of shipping, insurance, and risk of loss arising in connection with performance of this warranty shall be borne by you. To the extent allowed by local law, the remedies provided in this Limited Warranty Statement are your sole and exclusive remedies. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, EXCEPT FOR THE OBLIGATIONS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH IN THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT, IN NO EVENT SHALL CLOVER BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY AND WHETHER ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. The limitations set forth herein shall not be affected by the failure of the repair and replacement remedy provided hereinabove. In no event shall you, your successors, assigns, customers or users of the Products commence any action against Clover arising out of the sale, delivery or use of the Products and regardless of the form of the action (whether in contract or tort) later than one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued. Any assertion by you of any rights under this warranty provision must be in writing and specify with particularity the alleged defects in the Products.
THE ABOVE WARRANTIES ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND MERCHANTABILITY AND SETS FORTH YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH WARRANTIES. IN NO EVENT SHALL CLOVER BE LIABLE FOR COLLATERAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF USE, ARISING OUT OF, OR CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH, THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD PURSUANT HERETO. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY.
You shall inspect all Products immediately upon their delivery to the shipping destination and shall provide written notice to Clover at its principal place of business within twenty-four (24) hours of any claim that the Products do not conform to the items listed on the packing slip. Any such notice shall specify with particularity each alleged defect or nonconformity. If you fail to give such timely notice, the Products shall be conclusively deemed to conform to the terms and specifications of this Agreement and shall constitute an irrevocable acceptance of the Product except as indicated in Section 7 (Warranty) above. Any use by you of the Products other than solely for test purposes, or any alternation of the Products by you without Clover’s prior written consent, shall be conclusive and binding evidence that the Products conform to the terms and specifications of this Agreement. If you accept or are deemed to have accepted the Products as hereinabove provided, you shall not be entitled to later revoke such acceptance. In the event you timely reject the Products in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, you shall hold the Products without charge to Clover for a reasonable time until Clover provides you instructions with respect to the rejected Products. If you sell or dispose of the Products, such sale or disposition shall constitute an unequivocal acceptance of the Products notwithstanding any prior rejection of the Products.
- EXCUSABLE DELAYS.
Clover shall not be in default for failure to deliver or delay in delivery arising out of causes beyond its control and without its negligence, including, but not limited to: Acts of God or the public enemy; Acts of the Government in either its sovereign or contractual capacity, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, strikes, shortages of materials or suppliers, labor disputes, freight embargoes, delays in transit, and unusually severe weather. If the delay or failure to deliver is caused by a delay or failure of a subcontractor supplier of Clover, and if such delay or failure arises out of causes beyond the control of Clover, Clover shall not be liable in damages nor shall Clover be in default hereunder, unless the material or services to be furnished by the subcontractor or supplier were obtainable from other sources in sufficient time to permit Clover to meet the required delivery schedule using reasonable effort. Any of the above excusable delays shall not terminate this Agreement, and Clover shall deliver the Products as promptly as practical thereafter. The time of the delivery set forth in the Agreement shall be extended, in the event of any change order or request for modification required by you, for such period as is reasonably necessary for Clover to comply with any such change order or request for modification. In the event of a failure to deliver the Products in a timely manner, you shall not have any right to procure Products from any other source except at your sole expense, provided, however, that after payment to Clover of the contract price for any completed Products and work in process, according to the terms of this Agreement, you may procure such Products or portions thereof with Clover’s written approval, and at your expense, the price of which shall not exceed the amount still owing under this Agreement after required payments for such completed Products and work in process that have been subtracted there from. Your acceptance of late delivery Products shall constitute complete and satisfactory performance by Clover.
If you fail to comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement, become the subject of a proceeding under state or federal law for relief of debtors, or make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, Clover shall have the right to hold you in default and, in addition to any other rights it may have, may cancel this Agreement in whole or in part.
The rights and remedies provided Clover herein shall be cumulative, and in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law or equity. Clover’s failure to insist upon strict performance of any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of Clover’s rights or remedies, nor a waiver by Clover of any subsequent default by you in performance of compliance with any of the terms of this Agreement.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
Clover shall not be liable for any exemplary, indirect or consequential damages (including loss of goodwill, revenues or profits) suffered by your, any customer of yours or any user of the Products resulting from the non-delivery, use or inability to use the Products, integration of the Products with equipment not provided by Clover and/or from any other cause whatsoever, even if Clover has been advised of the possibility of such damage. Clover’s maximum total liability under this Agreement for actual, exemplary, incidental, proximate and/or consequential damages or expenses arising from any breach or breaches of warranty or failure to deliver the Products in conformance with this Agreement (regardless of the form of action, whether in contract or in tort) shall not exceed the least of: (i) the amount you have paid to Clover for the Products that relate to the claim, or (ii) the amount of your actual damages, or (iii) in the case of property damage or personal injury, the amount of such damages covered by Clover’s liability insurance. The period of the foregoing liability shall not extend beyond the warranty period under this Agreement. Your remedies and measure of damages as set forth in this Agreement shall be exclusive.
