      1. LIMITED WARRANTIES & REMEDIES

    (a) Products in Original Packaging and not Manufactured by GracoRoberts: If Buyer is purchasing Products in their original packaging which were not manufactured by GracoRoberts, the only product warranty available to Buyer as to the Products shall be the manufacturer’s warranty which may apply.  GracoRoberts makes no independent warranties.  No additional warranty is valid, either expressed or implied by GracoRoberts or any representative thereof, beyond that which is set forth by the manufacturer.  GracoRoberts warrants that the Product supplied is within manufacturer shelf-life and is in usable condition when shipped from the GracoRoberts location. GracoRoberts does not adopt, guarantee or represent that the manufacturer will comply with any of the terms of the warranty of such manufacturer.

    (b) Products Repackaged: If Buyer is purchasing Products repackaged by GracoRoberts, causing the original manufacturer’s seal to be broken, GracoRoberts warrants to original user only that the Products will be free from material defects in materials and workmanship attributable to the repackaging process under normal use and service for the shelf life of the Product as described in the technical data sheet.

    (c) Products Manufactured, Blended or Reformulated by GracoRoberts:  GracoRoberts warrants that the product meets the defined attributes of the technical data sheet and passed testing requirements identified by the product specifications.  Customized products are designed with intended purposes, but the Buyer takes full responsibility for product warranty once the product has been installed or applied.  The time period for warranty (“Warranty Period”) may vary depending on the product configuration and storage conditions, but in no event longer than one (1) year from the date of GracoRoberts’ delivery of such Product.

    (d) Limitations and Remedies. There is no warranty in cases of damage in transit, negligence, abuse, abnormal usage, misuse, accidents, normal wear and tear, damage due to environmental or natural elements, failure to follow GracoRoberts’ instructions or improper installation, storage or maintenance. GracoRoberts shall only repair or replace, at its option, any covered repackaged Products proved to GracoRoberts’ satisfaction to have a Defect (as defined below) within the Warranty Period. Such warranty shall be available only if: (i) GracoRoberts is notified in writing within ten (10) days after discovery of an alleged Defect (but in no event later than ten (10) days from the shipping date); (ii) the Defect has not been caused by Buyer’s misuse, neglect or alteration or by physical environment; and (iii) the manufacturer’s shelf life of the Product (as indicated on the Product’s packaging) has not expired when the alleged Defect is discovered.

    GracoRoberts’ sole obligation and Buyer’s exclusive remedy hereunder shall be limited to replacement or repair of defective repackaged products. Notice of any warranty claim or request for warranty service should be sent to GracoRoberts at the following address: GracoRoberts, 1001 Miller Avenue, Fort Worth, Texas 76105, Attention: Customer Service. Any assistance GracoRoberts provides to or procures for Buyer outside the terms, limitations or exclusions of this warranty will not constitute a waiver of the terms, limitations or exclusions of this limited warranty, nor will such assistance extend or revive the warranty. GracoRoberts will not reimburse Buyer for any expenses incurred by Buyer in repairing, correcting or replacing any defective Products, except for those incurred with GracoRoberts’ prior written permission. This warranty gives Buyer specific legal rights, and Buyer may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

      1. DISCLAIMERDisclaimer of implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for particular purpose. GracoRoberts and Buyer agree that the foregoing warranties are exclusive and in lieu of all other express warranties. GracoRoberts hereby disclaims all other express warranties. For commercial products, all implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are expressly limited to the period of the warranty stated above for the relevant Product.

    Any oral or written description of the Products is for the sole purpose of identifying the Products and shall not be construed as an express warranty. Prior to using or permitting use of the Products, Buyer shall determine the suitability of the Products for the intended use and Buyer shall assume all risk and liability whatsoever in connection therewith. Buyer agrees that GracoRoberts has no post-sale duty to warn Buyer or any other party about any matter or, if such duty exists, GracoRoberts satisfies that duty by providing any required warnings only to Buyer. Buyer assumes all post-sale duty to warn its customers and indemnifies GracoRoberts against any Damages in connection with such duty or failure to warn. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to Buyer.

      1. RETURNS AND EXCHANGE POLICYNo products may be returned to GracoRoberts without its prior, written authorization with a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) form. GracoRoberts must be contacted directly before a product is returned to obtain an RMA number to be included with the return.

Returned products must be of current manufacture, unused, in resalable condition, and securely packed to reach GracoRoberts without damage. Buyer is responsible for risk of loss, shipping and handling fees for returning or exchanging Product. Product must be received at GracoRoberts within 30 calendar days of original delivery. Sales of made-to-order items are non-returnable.  Returns may be subject to a restock fee.  If Product required refrigerated or frozen storage temperatures, Product may not be accepted for return.

    If the Buyer fails to follow the return or exchange instructions and policies provided by GracoRoberts, GracoRoberts is not responsible whatsoever for Product that is lost, damaged, modified or otherwise processed for disposal or resale. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Defect” means a material defect in the Product that otherwise renders the Product unusable for normal use and service per its technical data sheet, and specifically excludes damage to the Product container or other damage that does not affect such normal use of the Product. Buyer’s failure to make such claim as set forth in Section 7 above shall constitute Buyer’s irrevocable acceptance of the Products and Buyer’s acknowledgement that the Products fully comply with the terms and conditions of this agreement. At GracoRoberts’ discretion, credit for partial returns may be less than invoice or individual component prices due to bundled or promotional pricing. Product returned to GracoRoberts may be subject to a restocking charge up to 50% plus the costs of freight, packaging, insurance and any import or export costs.

      1. RETENTION OF RECORDSGracoRoberts shall retain quality records for a period of seven (7) years. Records shall be identified, legible, retrievable, and retained in a suitable environment to prevent damage, deterioration or loss.

In no event shall GracoRoberts be liable for incidental compensatory, punitive, consequential, indirect, special or other damages, or for any other claim by any third party. Buyer agrees that, for any liability related to the purchase of Products, GracoRoberts’ aggregate liability with respect to a defective product and this agreement shall be limited to the monies paid to GracoRoberts for that defective product.  Notwithstanding anything in this agreement to the contrary, the remedies set forth in this agreement shall apply even if such remedies fail their essential purpose. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental and consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to Buyer.
      4. INDEMNIFICATIONBuyer hereby releases and agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless GracoRoberts, its shareholders, officers, agents, employees, affiliates, successors, assigns and third-party suppliers (“GracoRoberts’ Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all direct and indirect claims, debts, actions, causes of action, liabilities, loss, suits, demands, fines, penalties, judgments, omissions, damages or expenses whatsoever, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and costs (“Damages”) incurred by or against GracoRoberts or any of GracoRoberts’ Indemnified Parties due to or arising out of, in connection with, resulting from or relating to (i) misrepresentations, breach of the warranties, representations, covenants or agreement contained in this Agreement or any law by Buyer or any of Buyer’s shareholders, directors, officers, employees, affiliates, representatives, agents, successors or assigns (“Buyer’s Parties”), or (ii) any damage to or destruction of property, or injury to or death of persons caused, or alleged to have been caused, in whole or in part, by any intentional, reckless, negligent or other act (or failure to act) of Buyer or any of Buyer’s Parties, or (iii) losses, damages or injuries caused by Buyer’s Products, Buyer’s specifications, designs, approvals or instructions provided to GracoRoberts, or due to improper application or use of the Products or otherwise.

      7. PRIVACY POLICY

    (a) Security – GracoRoberts has taken steps to safeguard the integrity of its data and prevent unauthorized access. These measures are designed to prevent corruption of data, block unknown or unauthorized access to GracoRoberts’ systems and information, and provide reasonable protection of private information in GracoRoberts’ possession.

    (b) Encryption – GracoRoberts collects personal information required for orders and quotes using Secure Socket Layers (SSL), an industry standard for secure website transactions. When Buyer visits Web resources protected by SSL, Buyer’s browser address (URL) changes from HTTP to HTTPS, and the browser may display a lock or key symbol on the task bar. If Buyer does not see one or more of these security indicators, any information Buyer submits could be intercepted. GracoRoberts’ SSL-protected applications use 128-bit encryption any time private or sensitive information is collected. The 128-bit encryption keys further secure GracoRoberts’ website and network against brute force attacks that might be directed at Buyer’s online transactions, including any private information Buyer may send to GracoRoberts.

    If Buyer’s browser does not support 128-bit encryption, Buyer will not be able to connect to encrypted pages.

Sales representatives of GracoRoberts are without authority to change the terms of this agreement.
