IBUYXS’S LIMITED WARRANTY. IBuyXS will pass through to Customer any transferable Product warranties provided to IBuyXS by the manufacturer for repair or replacement. In no case shall IBuyXS be liable to pay an amount greater than that credited by the product manufacturer, less any outstanding invoices.

Customer’s sole remedies for breach of IBuyXS’s warranty are, at IBuyXS’s choice: (i) repair the Products; (ii) replace the Products at no cost to Customer; or (iii) refund Customer the purchase price of the Products.
PRODUCT RETURN. Customer may return Products to IBuyXS only with a return material authorization (“RMA”) number issued by IBuyXS. Customer must notify IBuyXS in writing of any damage to the outer packaging or the Products, shortage, or other discrepancy (“Visual Defect”) within 3 days after receipt of the shipment; otherwise, Customer is deemed to have accepted the Products and may not revoke acceptance. RMAs will be issued only for Visual Defects created solely by IBuyXS or the original manufacturer, and only if Customer satisfies the notice requirement. RMAs will not be granted for damage, shortage, or other discrepancy created by Customer, the carrier or freight provider, or any other third party. Product return pursuant to a warranty requires written notice from Customer to IBuyXS within the warranty period detailing the Product defect as well as a test report from a certified test house with expertise in the subject product. Customer must return the Products to IBuyXS freight prepaid in original manufacturer’s shipping cartons or equivalent, along with acceptable proof of purchase, within the warranty period and as specified in the RMA.

To the extent IBuyXS LLC cannot lawfully disclaim any implied or statutory warranties, Customer’s statutory rights are not affected by this limitation of liability.
USE OF PRODUCTS. Customer shall comply with the manufacturer’s or supplier’s Product specifications. Products are not authorized for use in critical safety or other applications where a failure may reasonably be expected to result in personal injury, loss of life, or serious property damage. If Customer uses or sells the Products for use in any such applications or fails to comply with the manufacturer’s Product specifications, Customer acknowledges that such use, sale, or non-compliance is at Customer’s sole risk.
