Polycorp Ltd. may establish and change the credit and payment terms extended to Customer when in Polycorp Ltd.'s sole opinion Customer's financial or previous payment record warrants such action, and Customer's order of Products hereunder constitutes an agreement to honor the credit and payment terms so established or changed. Customer will provide promptly upon request such financial information as may be reasonably required by Polycorp Ltd. to complete its credit review of Customer.
If Customer does not pay any amount when due or does not meet any other obligation hereunder, then (in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity) Polycorp Ltd. may accelerate any balance due and require immediate payment thereof, may repossess the Product(s), and may resell the Product(s), in each case, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The net proceeds of any such resale, after Polycorp Ltd.'s cost of repossessing, removing, transporting, reconditioning, refabricating, storing, and reselling the Product(s), and all other associated costs, will be applied to the unpaid balance owed by Customer. Customer will remain liable for any deficiency which remains after such resale, and Polycorp Ltd. will return to Customer all net proceeds in excess of Customer's unpaid balance.

Polycorp Ltd. warrants to the original Customer that Products sold by Polycorp Ltd. will, under normal use and service, be free from defects in materials and workmanship (the "Warranty"). The Warranty for any Product commences on the date of shipment as reflected on Polycorp Ltd.'s invoice and expires 12 months after such date.
In order for Customer to make a valid claim that any Product supplied by Polycorp Ltd. does not meet the Warranty, Customer must fully comply with the following Warranty claim procedures:
Customer shall have notified Polycorp Ltd. in writing prior to the Warranty expiration date and shall have received a written Returned Goods Authorization (RGA) from Polycorp Ltd. referencing the Product(s) covered by the Warranty; and
Customer shall have returned such Product(s) to Polycorp Ltd. referencing Customer's RGA, freight collect via common carrier specified by Polycorp Ltd. (or freight prepaid if returned via any other carrier). In no event will Polycorp Ltd. make on-site repairs or replacements.
If Polycorp Ltd. determines that a returned Product is covered under the Warranty, then Polycorp Ltd. shall, at its option in its sole discretion, either (i) replace the returned Product at no additional cost to Customer or (ii) refund the original purchase price paid for such returned Product. Customer acknowledges and agrees that its failure to (i) follow the Warranty claim procedures set forth above, including (without limitation) the process by which it reports any alleged defects in materials or workmanship and obtains its RGA from Polycorp Ltd., or (ii) comply with the other Warranty conditions set forth herein, shall constitute a release and waiver of all Warranty obligations of Polycorp Ltd. hereunder.
The Warranty is subject to the condition that Customer notifies Polycorp Ltd. immediately in the event the Product at any time demonstrates any defect in materials or workmanship. The Warranty is subject to the further conditions that materials not intended for immediate application shall be stored in humidity-controlled warehouses or storage areas at temperatures not to exceed 50° F. and in no event shall be stored for any period of time at temperatures exceeding 120° F. or where the material may be subject to partial cure. The Customer is responsible for proper installation and normal care and maintenance of the Product.
The Warranty does not include coverage for any defect or performance deficiency, which is the direct or indirect result, in whole or in part, of accidents, abuse, misuse, operation of Product(s) outside of their environmental, electrical or performance specifications, conditions, capabilities, or standards, vandalism or any other damage or alteration of the Product(s) by persons other than Polycorp Ltd. employees, combining incompatible products, fires, floods, and other similar and dissimilar natural causes, damage, alteration, or any impairment of the Product(s) resulting from causes or conditions not associated with ordinary storage, handling, installation, maintenance, service, or use, maintenance or service by any party other than Customer or a designated representative of Polycorp Ltd., or any acts, omissions, causes, or events beyond the control of Polycorp Ltd. It is solely Customer's responsibility to test and determine the suitability of any Product for any intended use, and although Polycorp Ltd. may have recommended a Product at Customer's request, Customer assumes all risk and liability whatsoever regarding such Product's suitability for Customer's purposes or any other intended use. Furthermore, the Warranty does not extend to dimensional changes or other defects directly or indirectly caused by storage, handling, or processing the Product(s) under environmental conditions exceeding those recommended by Polycorp Ltd. or generally accepted by the industry for the Product(s) or for any storage, handling, manufacturing, or fabrication process used by Customer involving the Product(s). The Warranty does not apply to Products that have not been paid in full. Polycorp Ltd. must be given a reasonable period of time to inspect any Product that is the subject of a Warranty claim, and Customer's failure to allow such inspection shall invalidate any warranty claim. The Warranty is not transferable to any subsequent purchaser or users of the Product(s).
The Warranty is (i) the sole and exclusive warranty provided for the Product(s), (ii) extends only to the original Customer (and not to any subsequent purchasers or users), (iii) is expressly in lieu of any other warranties, express or implied, including without limitation any warranty of merchantability, fitness for particular purpose or otherwise, even if such purpose is known to Polycorp Ltd., and (iv) in lieu of any other obligations or liability on the part of Polycorp Ltd. Polycorp Ltd. neither assumes, nor has authorized anyone to assume for it, any other warranty or liability in connection with its Product(s). If implied warranties arise or exist under any applicable law and cannot be waived or disclaimed, then those warranties will last only as long as the Warranty.
Limitations of Liability
It is expressly agreed that Customer's sole remedies relating to the products are set forth herein. Polycorp Ltd. will have no liability under any circumstances for any consequential, incidental or special damages by reason of any act of omission arising out of or in connection with the Products, or the sale, delivery, installation, maintenance, operation, performance, or use of the Products, including (by way of example and not by way of limitation) damages, expenses, or losses incurred by reason of loss of use, lost revenues, lost profits, damage to associated equipment or to facilities, costs of capital, costs of substitute products or facilities, costs of replacement products, costs associated with down time, and any similar and dissimilar damages, expenses, or losses whether any such liability is based on contract, tort, or other legal or equitable principles, and in no event shall Polycorp Ltd.'s liability exceed the purchase price of the Product(s) identified or involved in any dispute. The sole purpose of the stipulated sole remedy set forth in this section shall be to provide Customer with free replacement or refund for defective Products in the manner provided herein. This sole remedy will not be deemed to have failed of its essential purpose so long as Polycorp Ltd. is willing and able to replace defective Products in the manner prescribed herein or, in its sole option, to provide a refund of the original purchase price paid by the Customer for such Product.
