Any terms and conditions stipulated by the Customer which are different from the General Terms and Conditions shall apply only if expressly agreed by ArduSimple in writing. These General Terms and Conditions constitute the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between ArduSimple and the Customer (“the parties”). By taking delivery of Products or Third Party Software or by using support or Data Services, Customer accepts these General Terms and Conditions. Orders shall not be effective until they are confirmed by ArduSimple’s order confirmation.

Any use for which ArduSimple Products and Data Services are not intended for is at customer’s risk and customer shall indemnify ArduSimple from claims resulting from such use.

All bank charges for wire transfer must be borne by the Customer.  If Customer delays payment, default interest will be charged monthly towards consumers at 6 (six) percentage points above the then valid base interest rate published by the European Central Bank. ArduSimple’s right to claim a higher damage caused by the default is not limited thereby.

Incoming Inspection: Customer shall perform incoming inspection as necessary to ascertain that the Products shipped correspond to the order confirmation. Customer may reject those Products that do not correspond to the order confirmation within five (5) business days from the receipt of shipment. In the event Customer does not reject the Products within the five (5) business day period, Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the delivered Products in full. 
  7. Return Policy: In the event that the Customer wishes to return a shipment without any warranty or incoming inspection claims, the Customer agrees to pay a restocking and handling fee of 50% of the Product price. Shipping for returned shipments is at the responsibility and cost of the Customer. Products can only be returned after receiving an authorization number which can be requested at info@ardusimple.com. Only unopened shipments in their original packaging can be returned. Products sold under a Non‑Cancellable, Non‑Returnable (NCNR) purchase order cannot be returned.
  8. Warranties: Ardusimple’s Product warranty applies for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of delivery for any proven defects due to bad material or poor workmanship of ArduSimple. Under the warranty, Ardusimple undertakes, at its sole discretion, to repair or, replace the defective hardware or to reimburse the purchase price for the defective hardware. It is the Customer’s responsibility to arrange and pay the return shipment of the defective hardware to Ardusimple. Return shipment will only be accepted if such shipment is approved by e-mail. Repaired or replaced hardware will be warranted hereunder only for the remaining portion of the original warranty period. Any guarantee or additional warranty, implied warranty (merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose) or any return due to reasons other than the above‑mentioned is expressly excluded. Any removed hardware shall become Ardusimple’s property. The Customer shall bear the associated costs of replacement of any defective hardware (i.e. removing, transporting and reinstalling). Excluded from Ardusimple’s warranty are all defects, which result from normal wear and tear or damaging external influences (e.g. electromagnetic, electrolytic, chemical, weather, air pollution), unapproved repairs, improper maintenance or storage, failure to observe the user manual and mounting instructions, excessive loading, inappropriate or insufficient testing, inappropriate material or processes, failure to implement updates or upgrades of firmware or software as recommended by Ardusimple. Before mass‑production, Customer shall perform tests as necessary to assure that the Products and Data Services are fit for the purpose intended by the Customer. A warranty claim must be made within three (3) days after discovery of the defect by Customer, otherwise Ardusimple’s warranty coverage shall not apply. Data Services and support are provided on an “as is” basis and ArduSimple, its affiliates and third party licensors expressly disclaim all warranties, whether express, implied or statutory.
  9. Data Services: ArduSimple grants Customer a non‑exclusive non‑transferable, license to use ArduSimple Data Services. Customer shall ensure that any system (e.g. Customer’s servers) containing the data or access credentials are kept secure and inaccessible to unauthorized third parties. In any event of a breach of Customer’s system, Customer shall notify ArduSimple immediately. Customer and its own customers are not permitted: (i) to make modifications or derivative works of the data or of the Data Services, (ii) to interfere with their performance, (iii) to use them in any illegitimate or illegal manner, or (iv) to reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover their source code. ArduSimple reserves the right to refuse or interrupt the services for any reason such as maintenance, patches or upgrades and to disable or to completely deactivate any Customer access to the data without prior notification. ArduSimple Data Services are only to be used in combination with ArduSimple Products. The use of ArduSimple Data Services outside the specified use cases will lead to immediate interruption of the service and termination of the contract without compensation.

ArduSimple’s maximum cumulative liability under the General Terms and Conditions and under any order, order confirmation or delivery is limited to the lesser of EUR 1’000 or the total payment received by ArduSimple from Customer for the Products and Data Services giving rise to the liability or indemnity obligation. Any liability which is not expressly mentioned under the General Terms and Conditions and any liability, without limitation, for indirect or consequential damages, loss of profit, irrespective of the grounds on which it is based (including late, partial or no delivery, infringement of intellectual property rights, tort, contract or strict liability), is excluded by ArduSimple to the maximum extent authorized by law. Customer using or selling Products in devices or systems where malfunction can result in personal injury or casualties, do so at their own risk and agree to hold ArduSimple harmless from any claims, liabilities or damages as a consequence. The use or sale of Products in countries subject to different regulations and standards than those in force at ArduSimple’s place of production, are at Customer’s risk. ArduSimple reserves the right to control the defense and settlement of any claim, for which ArduSimple has an obligation to indemnify hereunder.

  12. Technical Information: Instructions, recommendations, data and drawings in summaries, brochures, datasheets, manuals, catalogues and on ArduSimple’s website are not binding and do not constitute a warranty (express, implied or statutory). ArduSimple may modify such information at any time without notice.
  13. Export Control and Regulatory Requirements: Customer represents that the Product will not be shipped to any countries subject to embargo, export controls or other restrictions under any applicable law or regulation and that he/she is not on a denied person or entity list.
