Last Updated:  June 27, 2016

THIS WARRANTY AND RETURNS DOCUMENT RELATES TO ANY PRODUCTS THAT YOU HAVE PURCHASED FROM GROBO PURSUANT TO THE GROBO TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR ONLINE OFFERS TO PURCHASE (“PURCHASE TERMS AND CONDITIONS”),  AND IS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE INTO THAT AGREEMENT.  IN THE EVENT OF A CONFLICT BETWEEN THE WARRANTY TERMS OF THIS DOCUMENT AND THE PURCHASE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THIS DOCUMENT SHALL PREVAIL TO THE EXTENT OF THE CONFLICT.

ANY CAPITALIZED TERMS NOT DEFINED HEREIN SHALL HAVE THE MEANING SET FORTH IN THE PURCHASE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

 

Limited One-Year Warranty

Our Products are warrantied against manufacturing defects for a period of one (1) year from the original date of delivery of the Product to you. Our sole obligation in the event of such defects during this period is to repair or replace the defective part or product with a comparable part or product; how we replace or repair the Product is at our sole discretion. Replaced or repaired Products will be warrantied for the remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days from the date of delivery of the replaced or repaired Product to you, whichever is longer. Please note that this warranty ONLY applies to orders placed on our website at www.grobo.io, and only to the original purchaser.

 

Return Costs

You must obtain a Return Materials Authorization (“RMA”) number from us prior to returning any Products to us under this Warranty by contacting us at support@grobo.io. You agree to pack the Product that you are returning carefully and return it to us, freight prepaid, together with the RMA. The returned Product must be in the original package and free of any defect or damage caused by shipping. If we determine to repair or replace your Product under the Limited One-Year Warranty, we will pay the return costs for ground shipping. If we reasonably determine that the Product you returned is not defective or is subject to the exclusions set forth below, we will contact you and will arrange for reshipment to you at your cost, plus a handling fee equal to fifteen (15%) of the Product purchase price. If you decline to pre-pay such shipping and handling costs, we are under no obligation to return such non-defective Product to you.

 

Warranty Exclusions

You agree to fully read the instructions and guidance we provide and review the Product’s capabilities and constraints before using the Product. Notwithstanding the limited warranty above, you assume all liability and we have no obligation whatsoever to you or anyone else for any of the following:

  • use of the Product for High-Risk Activities (defined below);

  • modifications, alterations, adjustments or repairs to the Product made by a third party other than us or a third party we authorize;

EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS WARRANTY DOCUMENT, ALL OTHER STATUTORY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS  OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABLE QUALITY OR MERCHANTABILITY, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, ARE DISCLAIMED. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM GROBO OR ELSEWHERE, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary by jurisdiction.

 

TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST DATA OR REVENUE, OR FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES,  INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, LOST DATA, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, YOUR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT, OR ANY OTHER SIMILAR ECONOMIC OR COMMERCIAL LOSS HOWEVER CAUSED REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN THE EVENT THAT WE ARE LIABLE UNDER ANT CAUSE OF ACTION, OUR LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO DIRECT DAMAGES  ACTUALLY INCURRENED AND SHALL NOT EXCEED  THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE PRODUCT. The foregoing limitations will apply even if any warranty or remedy provided under this Agreement fails of its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
