When a Product is returned for examination and inspection, or for any other reason, Buyer shall be responsible for all damage resulting from improper packing or handling, and/or for loss in transit, notwithstanding any defect or non-conformity in the Product. In all cases, Monadnock will be solely responsible for determining the actual cause and nature of failure, and Monadnock’s determination with regard thereto shall be final. Any Products returned to Monadnock, for whatever reason, must be free from hazardous substances including, but not limited to, corrosive, radioactive, or toxic substances.

In no event will Monadnock be liable for any damages caused by the Buyer’s failure to fulfill the Buyer’s responsibilities, or for lost profits or other consequential damages, even if Monadnock has been advised of the possibility of such damages, or for any claim against the Buyer by any other party.

General
