The following terms and conditions apply to the optional LIFETIME WARRANTY in addition to the General Terms and Conditions:

(The term “Original User” means that person, firm, or corporation which first uses the Product on a continuous basis in connection with the operation of a production line, piece of machinery, equipment, or similar device.) In the event the ownership of the Product is transferred to a person, firm or corporation other than the Original User, this LIFETIME WARRANTY shall terminate.
2) This LIFETIME WARRANTY shall be effective only if the LIFETIME WARRANTY REGISTRATION has been completed, signed by the Original User and received by Pepperl+Fuchs not later than six (6) months after the Product (or the machinery or equipment in which the Product was installed) was delivered to the Original User, or two (2) years from the date the Product was shipped from Pepperl+Fuchs, whichever date first occurs. A LIFETIME WARRANTY REGISTRATION form is available as a PDF download from the Pepperl+Fuchs website.

PURCHASER’S REMEDIES
This remedy shall apply to all WARRANTIES. If the Original User desires to make a WARRANTY Claim, he shall notify the authorized Pepperl+Fuchs Distributor from which the Product was purchased or, if such Distributor is unknown, shall notify Pepperl+Fuchs and, if requested by Pepperl+Fuchs, ship the Product to Pepperl+Fuchs’ factory in Twinsburg, Ohio, postage or freight prepaid. Pepperl+Fuchs shall, at its option, take either of the following two courses of action for any Products which Pepperl+Fuchs determines are defective in materials or workmanship:

CONSIDER SAFETY AND PROTECTION PRECAUTIONS
Pepperl+Fuchs takes great care to design and build reliable and dependable Products; however, some Products can fail eventually. You must take precautions to design your equipment to prevent property damage and personal injury in the unlikely event of failure. As a matter of policy, Pepperl+Fuchs does NOT recommend the installation of electronic controls as the sole device FOR THE PROTECTION OF PERSONNEL in connection with power driven presses, brakes, shears and similar equipment and, therefore, the customer should build in redundancy or dual control using approved safety devices for these applications.

SALE TO BUYER NOT PROHIBITED
Buyer represents to Seller that neither Buyer nor any of Buyer’s affiliates (collectively, “Buyer”) is an entity or person (“Prohibited Person”) to whom sale of Products is prohibited because Buyer is listed as:  (1) a Specially Designated National or Blocked Person by the U.S. Treasury Department; (2) a Denied Person or Denied Entity by the U.S. Commerce Department; or (3) a Debarred Party by the U.S. State Department or subject to any other similar lists, laws, or regulations.
In the event Seller discovers that Buyer is a Prohibited Person, Seller shall have the right, without liability to Buyer, to rescind any sale of goods or services, whereupon Buyer shall immediately return to Seller any goods which Buyer has received.  Buyer agrees to indemnify Seller against and hold Seller harmless from any and all liabilities, costs, expenses and/or fines imposed upon or incurred by Seller as a result of the breach of Buyer’s representation.
