Limited Warranty

Except as expressly stated in writing, Protifi makes no representation or warranties in respect of Products and expressly excludes all other warranties, expressed or implied, oral or written, including, without limitation, any implied warranties of merchantable quality or fitness for a particular purpose. Protifi reserves the right to make changes in design, production, manufacture, or characteristics of Products or to improve Products at any time and in any way, without incurring any obligations to replace or modify any Products previously sold. Deviations from the product specification that impair the use of fitness of Products (hereafter referred to as “material defects”) may be present. Should you encounter a material defect, you shall immediately notify Protifi in writing, specifying how the material defect manifests itself, what effect it has and under what circumstances it occurs; emailing info@protifi.com is the preferred method of communication. Having received notification of the material defect and having established that a material defect actually exists, Protifi may, at its sole option and discretion, remedy such material defect. You acknowledge and agree that any Feedback you may provide to Protifi shall be Protifi’s sole and exclusive property, and you hereby irrevocably assign to Protifi all of your rights, title and interests in and to all such Feedback. “Feedback” includes, without limitation, suggestions, comments, ideas or know how in direct or indirect connection with your testing, evaluation and/or use (whether presented orally, in written form or otherwise). Protifi makes no warranty of any kind or nature, neither express nor implied, for any Products or part of Products that are not manufactured by Protifi. Any Products, or other such part or accessories to Products shall have the warranty, if any, that is offered and granted by the manufacturer of such other products and accessories.

 

Product Form

Customer acknowledges and agrees that Protifi may fill Customer’s order with any number of units of Products. Such units may be more units than Customer ordered. Customer will not be charged extra for any adjustments made by Protifi. In the event that activity is significantly different between lots, Protifi reserves the right to fill the order with that number of units which is sufficient to fill Customer’s order and such adjustments shall not constitute a breach of the warranty herein.

 

Miscellaneous

This Agreement shall be governed by the law of the United States. This Agreement (a) may not be assigned or transferred by either party without the other party’s prior written consent and (b) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York of the United States applicable therein, without regard to any choice of law principles. You hereby irrevocably attorn and submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of United States therefrom. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held, considered or become invalid, unlawful, void or otherwise unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this License and not affect the validity and enforceability of any other provisions. Both Parties agree to replace the invalid provision with a valid provision, which most closely approximates to the commercial objective of the Parties. The same applies to eventual loopholes in this Agreement. No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of Protifi, any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy prevent any further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy. The waiver by Protifi of any breach shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other term of this Agreement.
