Limitation of Liability
This Limited Warranty sets forth the maximum liability of ACME or the ACME-authorized dealer for the products. IN NO EVENT SHALL ACME OR THE ACMEAUTHORIZED DEALER BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE SALE, INSTALLATION, OR USE OF ANY ACME PRODUCTS, including damage to buildings or contents of buildings on which ACME products are utilized. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages for consumers, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Submission of Claims
Within the warranty period, Buyer or End-User shall notify ACME in writing immediately, but in no case more than ninety (90) days after any defect or other basis of a claim covered by this Limited Warranty is discovered or should have been discovered. Failure to timely notify ACME will bar claims otherwise covered by this Limited Warranty. All claims and other communications under this Limited Warranty must be made to ACME or the claimant’s ACME-authorized dealer. Each claim must be in writing, briefly describing the defect, be accompanied by a proof of purchase and photograph of the defect and be received during the lifetime of the product. Within ninety (90) days of submission of the claim, ACME or its representatives will investigate and make a determination of the claim’s validity. The claimant must provide to ACME or the ACME-authorized dealer other information and evidence reasonably required by ACME and, if requested, must permit inspection of the product by ACME or its representatives.
Limitation of Remedy
If ACME is given notice of defect within 90 days from the date of discovery of the defect, ACME will, at its sole option: 1) replace the product; 2) furnish labor to repair any defective workmanship; or 3) refund the original purchase price of the defective item in question. Upon repair or replacement, the original remaining Limited Warranty period will continue in effect and be applicable to the repaired or replacement ACME product. THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY OF BUYER OR END-USER, AND THE SOLE AND TOTAL LIABILITY OF ACME AND THE ACME-AUTHORIZED DEALER SHALL NOT EXCEED THE PRICE PAID FOR THE PRODUCT. Replacement products shall be a reasonably similar current product and may not exactly match the original. Where ACME chooses to repair or replace the product, the costs covered by this Limited Warranty do not include any labor or material costs associated with finishing space surrounding or adjacent to the repaired or replaced product. If ACME or an ACME-authorized dealer provides any of the remedies identified above, Buyer or End-User agrees this limitation of remedy shall not have failed of its essential purpose. ACME reserves the right to discontinue the model or models manufactured under this Limited Warranty, and reserves the right to make changes in specifications, materials and construction details. If an ACME product or any part covered by this Limited Warranty has been discontinued at the time of repair or replacement or if ACME determines, in its sole discretion, that repair or replacement is inappropriate, ACME will refund the original purchase price of the product. Except when ACME determines to repair or replace a defect, as expressly provided in this Limited Warranty, ACME SHALL NOT BE OBLIGATED OR LIABLE FOR LABOR OR OTHER COSTS RELATED TO INSTALLATION, REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT.
With the exception of a written statement signed by an authorized ACME representative, this Limited Warranty and all the terms contained herein constitutes the entire agreement between ACME/ACME-authorized dealer and Buyer/End-User. This Limited Warranty and all of its terms are made a part of any such written agreement unless expressly excluded. By purchasing or using the product covered by this Limited Warranty, Buyer and End-User agree that they are not relying on any oral statements that in any way contradict this Limited Warranty.
Service and Repair
ACME maintains service and repair facilities, and will make a list of such facilities available to Buyer throughout the duration of this Limited Warranty.
