POLAR TOOLS A/S or its assigns (”POLAR”) provides the following warranty to customers who purchase tools and equipment from authorized POLAR distribution channels for use in their profession (”buyer”).
POLAR warrants the POLAR brand products against defects in workmanship and materials for a duration described in each product’s warranty code.
The warranty duration depends upon the nature of the product. If the product information for purchased product does not include a warranty statement with the applicable duration or prior to the product purchase, buyer can obtain the product warranty code and warranty duration from the selling POLAR dealer or representative or by writing POLAR at the address provided at the end of this warranty statement.
Consumable products are warranted, at the time of sale, only against defects in workmanship or materials that prevent their use.
Consumable products are goods reasonably expected to be used up or damaged during use, including but not limited to drill bits, saw blades, grinding discs, sanding discs, knife blades, files and batteries. This warranty only extends to the original buyer and cannot be transferred or assigned.
During the applicable duration of the warranty, at its opinion, POLAR will repair or replace its products which fail to give satisfactory service due to a defect in workmanship or materials, or provide a refund by repaying or crediting Buyer with an amount equal to the purchase price of such products.
Repair, replacement or refund shall be at the sole election and expense of POLAR, and is buyer’s exclusive remedy in place of all other rights and remedies. To obtain warranty service, return products to POLAR or a POLAR dealer. Proof of purchase must be provided with all warranty service requests. By repairing or replacing a product, or providing a refund, POLAR does not waive a claim that a product nevertheless has been subject to abnormal use.
In addition to any limitations outlined in warranty statements provided with the product, POLAR does NOT provide any warranty for (1) products labelled other than POLAR or (2) products subjected to ”abnormal use”. Products that are not labelled POLAR are subject to the warranty provided by the manufacturers of those products and POLAR will pass along any such warranties.
“Ab normal use” includes misuse, accident, modification, alternation, unreasonable or improper use, abuse, neglect, lack of maintenance, use in product related service, or use after the product is significantly worn. Abnormal use of tool storage units also includes, without limitation, situations when a unit is pulled using a mechanical vehicle, rolled over large drops, used in a highly corrosive environment, used as a step stool, modified with non POLAR parts, overloaded or modified in any way.
The foregoing warranty is in lieu of and excludes all other warranties not expressly set forth herein, whether express or implied by operation of law or otherwise, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose and sets forth the sole and exclusive remedy in contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, POLAR does not grant any other person or entity permission to create for it any warranty, liability or obligation in connection with its products.
POLAR and its affiliated companies shall not be liable for any incidental, special or consequential losses, costs or damages incurred by buyer or others, directly or indirectly arising from the sale, handling or use of the products, or from any other cause with respect to the products or this warranty, whether such claim is based upon breach of contract, breach of warranty, strict liability in tort, negligence or any other legal theory (including without limitation, lost profits, revenues, anticipated sales, business opportunities, goodwill, or interruption of business or other injury or damage)
To the extent allowed by applicable law, this warranty and all rights and obligations hereunder, including matters of construction, validity and performance, shall be governed by the law, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of law thereof.
We reserve the right to make changes in design or construction at any time without incurring any obligation in incorporating such changes in tools or equipment previously sold. We also reserve the right to discontinue the manufacture or offering for sale through POLAR dealers of any tools or equipment at such time as we consider necessary.
We cannot accept the responsibility for the results of using tools which have been abused or badly worn, such as punches and chisels mushroomed by hammer blows, or the incorrect use or tools, or tools repaired by others.
