Customer hereby acknowledges and agrees that, and this provision constitutes notice from Cellular Dynamics to Customer that, its rights with respect to any subsequently purchased or received DopaNeurons as contemplated in clause (ii) of the preceding provision are subject to the End‑User LOA previously executed by Customer.
II. LIMITED WARRANTY BY CELLULAR DYNAMICS FOR COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS.
A. During the Warranty Period (as defined below) and subject to Section II.F., below, Cellular Dynamics warrants that its Commercial Products conform to the specifications contained in the Certificate of Analysis for the Commercial Product shipped to Customer. Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy (and Cellular Dynamics’ sole and exclusive liability) with respect to any defective Commercial Products shall be replacement of the defective Commercial Products by Cellular Dynamics pursuant to this Section II.
B. Cellular Dynamics will bear all reasonable shipping costs if the Commercial Products are replaced pursuant to this warranty. For clarity, this warranty automatically shall be void, and any claims under it invalid, (i) if Customer’s use of the Commercial Products is other than solely in accordance with these terms or for a purpose or in a manner other than that for which the Commercial Products were designed; or (ii) if Customer fails to follow Cellular Dynamics’ User’s Guide for the use, storage, and handling of the Commercial Products however such failure is caused; or (iii) if Customer fails to comply with any of the provisions of Sections II. A, B or C above; or (iv) if there is any abuse, other misuse or neglect of the Commercial Products by Customer or to the extent of any damage or loss of the Commercial Products by events or occurrences beyond a person’s (e.g., Cellular Dynamics’) control including without limitation, accident, fire, vandalism and natural disasters (acts of God). This warranty applies only to Customer and not to third parties. This warranty is not assignable.
C. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CELLULAR DYNAMICS DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND CUSTOMER WAIVES ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES, WITH RESPECT TO ANY DEFECTIVE COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS OTHER THAN THE EXPRESS WARRANTY AND REMEDY THEREFOR STATED ABOVE IN THIS SECTION II.
D. Within five (5) business days of thawing the Commercial Product but prior to the expiration date of the Commercial Product as listed on the Certificate of Analysis and/or Commercial Product’s label (the “Warranty Period”), Customer must notify Cellular Dynamics in writing of any nonconformity of the Commercial Products, describing the nonconformity in detail. Customer’s failure to properly notify Cellular Dynamics in the Warranty Period voids the limited warranty described above in this Section II.
E. If Customer believes Customer has a warranty claim, Customer should call Cellular Dynamics’ Technical Support line at (608) 310-5100 ext. 5 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a replacement Commercial Product based on a breach of the above limited warranty. Any action by Customer for Cellular Dynamics’ breach of this limited warranty, for which Customer has given timely and proper notice of the breach during the Warranty Period and otherwise in accordance with this Section II, must be commenced by Customer within 18 months following the date of such breach.
F. Cellular Dynamics makes no warranty of any kind or nature, neither express nor implied, for any product sold together with, or as a part of, the Commercial Products (e.g., an accessory accompanying a Commercial Product or a discrete component part of a Commercial Product that is a kit) that is not manufactured by Cellular Dynamics. Any such accessory to or component part of the Commercial Products shall have the warranty, if any, that is offered and granted (and, for clarity, extended by its terms to Customer) by the manufacturer of such other accessory or component part.
G. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Cellular Dynamics may fill Customer’s order with any number of units of Commercial Products. Such units may be more units than Customer ordered. Customer will not be charged extra for any adjustments made by Cellular Dynamics. The number of cells in a unit is determined by the Commercial Product’s Certificate of Analysis. The number of cells that are contained in a unit accounts for both viability and plating efficiency percentages. Because this may vary from lot to lot, Cellular Dynamics reserves the right to fill the order with that number of units which is sufficient to fill Customer’s order and such adjustments shall not constitute a breach of the warranty herein.
III. FURTHER LIABILITY LIMITATION.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, CELLULAR DYNAMICS SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL, COMPENSATORY, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND REGARDLESS OF FORM OF ACTION WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF CELLULAR DYNAMICS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER TERM OR IMPLICATION TO THE CONTRARY, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL CELLULAR DYNAMICS’ LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER FOR THE PRODUCTS TO CELLULAR DYNAMICS.
