All deliveries are subject to the accompanying Freight Receiving Rules.
METHOD OF SHIPMENT
Manufacturer will handle product shipments unless buyer specifies shipment method. Any shipments returned to manufacturer as a result of buyer's unexcused delay or failure to accept delivery will require buyer to pay all additional costs incurred by manufacturer INCLUDING STORAGE FEES.
WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER
Except as specified herein, manufacturer warrants that any goods sold hereunder will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for one (1) year. This warranty does not apply to damage or breakage resulting from misuse, accidents, abuse, neglect, mishandling or wear resulting from normal use. Defective products will be replaced within the normal production time period required to reorder and manufacture the same product.Furniture:
Many wood and metal finishes are applied by hand and may vary in color, tone and character. While manufacturer will make every effort to match a finish, no guarantee can be made of an exact match. Manufacturer does not guarantee finishes against fading and oxidizing. Variations in color and veining are inherent in stone and wood and considered to be part of the natural beauty. Furniture and lighting is handmade, and therefore is subject to slight variations.Outdoor Teak Furniture:
Like all wood, teak will expand and contract with moisture and temperature changes. Over time this may cause slight crazing and cracking in the wood. This is a natural occurrence and is not indicative of a failure in manufacturer workmanship. Natural teak will weather to a silver patina over time when exposed to the elements. Stain finishes will degrade over time and dirt and residue may adhere to the teak unless regularly maintained by washing, sanding, and reapplying stain regularly.Textiles:
Manufacturer does not guarantee fabrics, once confirmed by the customer from fading, disintegrating and color changed.
LIMITATION OF REMEDIES
MANUFACTURER SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES, DAMAGES OR EXPENSES, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING FROM THE SALE, HANDLING OR USE OF THE GOODS, OR FROM ANY OTHER CAUSE WITH RESPECT TO THE GOODS OR THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS BASED UPON BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY IN TORT, NEGLIGENCE OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. MANUFACTURER'S LIABILITY HEREUNDER IN ANY CASE IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED, AT MANUFACTURER'S ELECTION, TO REPAIR OR REPLACE (IN THE FORM ORIGINALLY ORDERED) OF GOODS NOT COMPLYING WITH THIS AGREEMENT, OR TO THE REPAYMENT OF, OR CREDITING BUYER WITH, AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF SUCH GOODS.
ANY CLAIM BY BUYER WITH REFERENCE TO THE GOODS SOLD HEREUNDER FOR ANY CAUSE SHALL BE DEEMED WAIVED BY BUYER UNLESS SUBMITTED TO MANUFACTURER IN WRITING WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE BUYER DISCOVERED, OR SHOULD HAVE DISCOVERED, ANY CLAIMED BREACH.
REMEDIES UPON DEFAULT
Manufacturer requires payment for any shipment hereunder in advance. If buyer fails to make payment in accordance with the terms of this agreement or otherwise fails to comply with any provision hereof, manufacturer may, at its option, cancel any unshipped portion of this order, retain the goods and declare a forfeiture of the deposit as liquidated damages. In the alternative, manufacturer shall (in addition to other remedies available under any applicable Uniform Commercial Code or otherwise by law) have the right to appropriate and apply the goods to payment due hereunder. Manufacturer may proceed to sell or otherwise dispose of the goods at public or private sale for cash or credit; provided, however, that Buyer shall be credited with the proceeds of such sale only when manufacturer receives the proceeds. If any notification or intended disposition is required by law, such notification shall be deemed reasonably and properly given if mailed at least ten days before such disposition, postage prepaid, to Buyer at the Buyer's address set forth on the face side hereof. Manufacturer may apply any proceeds of the goods to the payment of expenses and costs to exercise Manufacturer's rights hereunder, and any balance of such proceeds shall be applied against Buyer's account in such order, as Manufacturer shall determine in its sole discretion. Buyer will remain liable for the balance of all unpaid accounts.
All of Manufacturer's drawings, descriptive matter, weights, dimensions, descriptions and illustrations contained in the Manufacturer's catalogues, prices lists or advertisements are close approximations only and intended to give a general description of the goods and shall not form part of this agreement. Furniture and lighting is handmade, and therefore is subject to slight variations. All sizes as indicated in the price list are within 1/2" variance.
Waiver by Manufacturer of any breach of these terms and conditions shall not be construed as a waiver of any other breach, and failure to exercise any right arising from any default hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver of such right at any subsequent time.
In the event that any one or more of these terms or conditions is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provision or provisions shall be severed and the remaining terms and conditions shall remain binding and effective.
