EQUIPMENT WARRANTY

Except as otherwise provided in this Section 7, any Goods sold hereunder which:

  3. have been operated within the limits of rated and normal usage,

are warranted to conform to Seller’s Technical Specifications and to be free of defects in material and workmanship, as determined by Seller’s inspection, for a period of two years (EU 27 only) or one year (outside EU27), or any purchased extended period, coming into effect upon Installation Completion.

Within the warranty period, Seller will repair or replace without cost to Buyer any product or parts covered by the warranty which Seller finds to be defective in material or workmanship, provided that the Buyer gives the Seller prompt notice. Buyer is solely responsible for the packaging and cost of shipment to Sellers’ Test and Repair lab in Luxembourg. This shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the Buyer under this warranty. To facilitate efficient warranty services delivery, Seller may in its sole discretion deliver to the Buyer a variety of spare parts such as are reasonably believed to be of potential use in completing the Services (such spare parts, together with those parts removed for replacement during Warranty Services, being collectively “Seller’s Property.”) Buyer will cooperate with Seller in maintaining Seller’s property in a secure location segregated from Buyer’s Equipment and Inventory during Services and in providing access during normal business hours for delivery and pick up. Seller is solely responsible for the packaging and cost of shipment of Seller’s property to Buyer’s Site.

Services under this warranty are provided during normal business hours and using standard freight delivery. Services and delivery may be otherwise provided dependent upon availability and will be invoiced at Seller’s service rates in accordance with Seller’s service policies and practices, which are incorporated by reference herein. Seller shall not be liable under any warranty or other obligation if the alleged defect in the Goods does not exist or the defect or defective performance is caused in whole or in part by Buyer’s or any third party’s misuse, neglect, modifications or additions, the use of non-EVVOS spare parts or consumables, unauthorized attempts to repair, or by accident or other hazard outside Seller’s control. Use of a non-EVVOS® spare part shall void the warranty if the EVVOS® spare part is available under the warranty free of charge. The warranty described herein is granted only to the original purchaser of the Goods and original purchaser’s specified end-user and is non-transferrable. DISCLAIMER OF OTHER WARRANTIES: THE WARRANTY DESCRIBED IN THIS PARAGRAPH 7 IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WHICH ARE EXCLUDED.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

The EVVOS® equipment, probes, and software sold hereunder are of Seller’s proprietary design offered in configurations and only with such modification as is customarily available to all buyers in the marketplace without significantly altering the Good’s function or processes. The Goods do not incorporate or embody Buyer’s intellectual property, or any technology developed by Buyer or specifically for Buyer. Buyer acquires no greater interest in the Goods, or the intellectual property embodied in the Goods than those rights of use, maintenance and resale as customarily accompany the purchase of off-the-shelf tangible goods. All Seller intellectual property including but not limited to patents, trademarks, trade names, trade secrets, copyrights, and all modifications and derivatives thereof, are and remain the sole and exclusive property of Seller.

DESIGN CHANGES

Acceptance of Purchase Order by Seller determines product version for delivery. The designs and specification of all Goods sold may be subject to subsequent change by Seller without notice and, in the event of any such changes, Seller will have no obligation whatsoever to make similar changes in Goods previously ordered.

RESERVATION OF SECURITY INTEREST; RISK OF LOSS

Seller hereby reserves, and Buyer hereby grants a security interest in the Goods (and the proceeds thereof) as security for the payment of the unpaid balance of the purchase price and Buyer’s performance of its other obligations hereunder. Buyer will execute and deliver to Seller such financing statements as Seller shall request to perfect such security interest. The security interest hereunder shall terminate upon Buyers payment in full of the purchase price of Goods and Services, and the respective taxes. The risk of loss passes to Buyer upon delivery of the Goods to the carrier. Insurance against loss or damage to the Goods during shipment is the responsibility of Buyer. Until the entire purchase price for the Goods is paid in full, Buyer will keep the Goods insured against loss or damage by fire and other risks and hazards included with so-called “extended coverage” insurance, in an amount at least equal to such purchase price. Losses under such insurance shall be made payable to Seller and any payments under such insurance shall be paid to Seller and applied to the unpaid balance of the purchase price. Upon request, Buyer will furnish Seller with copies of the policies of such insurance and each renewal thereof.

NONPAYMENT OF PURCHASE PRICE; STORAGE AND COLLECTION COSTS

If Buyer shall not pay the full purchase price within agreed time from the invoice date, Buyer will pay Seller thereafter an additional one percent (1%) per month on the unpaid balance of the purchase price until paid in full. Such a charge shall be added to and become an additional part of the purchase price for the Goods. Buyer also will pay all storage costs for the Goods after the scheduled delivery date as well as all costs of collection incurred by Seller in collecting the purchase price for the Goods and enforcing its security interest in the Goods, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by Seller.

GOVERNING LAW

The validity, interpretation, and performance of this contract for sale shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Luxembourg law. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly disclaimed by the Parties with respect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior agreements, understandings, negotiations and discussions, whether oral or written, of the Parties pertaining to the subject matter hereof.
