DEFECTIVE MERCHANDISE

Telecom, Datacom & Security Division

Most merchandise purchased from Target Distributing’s Telecom and/or Security Division(s) that is initially defective within 30 days of invoice maybe eligible for replacement. Other products are handled as required by the manufacturer. This may include returning it directly to the manufacturer for repair or replacement. Defects that occur after 30 days from invoice date are covered by the manufacturer’s limited warranty only.

Audio/Video Division

All hardware that is defective, either initially or within Warranty, is handled directly with the manufacturer in accordance with their limited warranty policies, and not through Target Distributing.

Products That Have Been Abused Will Not Be Accepted By Target Distributing For Credit or Replacement. In some cases, the manufacturer’s warranty guidelines may supersede any Target Distributing Policies.

RETURN AUTHORIZATION (RA) and CONDITIONS

No product will be accepted for return to Target Distributing without an “RA” number and “RA” form signed by the customer. Merchandise returned without a signed “RA” form will remain the property of the customer and will not be accepted or credited against their open account.

The disposition of all “RA” numbers is conditional until inspected and accepted by Target. All returns must be shipped freight prepaid and double boxed with the “RA” number displayed prominently on the outside of the shipping carton along with the number of cartons shipped (ex. 1 of 4, 2 of 4, etc.). All returns must be complete with original boxing, parts, adapters, accessories, instructions and warranty cards. “RA” Numbers must be obtained from your Target Distributing Sales person before returning product to Target. Your invoice information must be provided by you when requesting an “RA” number. All “RA” numbers are valid for 30 days only. When authorization for return is issued by Target Distributing, you, as the account, certify that the merchandise being returned is the same current product, with the same serial number as shipped, complete and in the same new condition as when received from Target Distributing. On the aforementioned returned products, and for which Target Distributing does not receive credit from it’s vendors due to “out-of-warranty”, initial failure, abuse or incomplete, you agree to accept those products back from Target Distributing and remit immediate payment to Target Distributing. In some cases, the manufacturer’s warranty guidelines may supersede any Target Distributing Policies. Target Distributing does not handle repairs. Returns will be credited at the price paid on the invoice or the current selling price, whichever is lower, less any re-stocking charge.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Target Distributing (Seller) passes along to its customers solely those warranties extended by its vendors. Seller does not itself warrant any product which it sells. There are no warranties, express or implied, of merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose or otherwise, which extend beyond the description on the face hereof. In no case shall seller be liable to anyone for any consequential or incidental damages for breach of this or any other warranty, express or implied, or upon any other basis of liability whatsoever, even if the loss or damage is caused by its own negligence or fault. Seller does not represent that the products it sells may not be compromised or circumvented; that the products will prevent any personal injury or property loss by burglary, robbery, fire or otherwise; or that the products will in all cases provide adequate warning or protection.

SECURITY PRODUCTS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Customer understands that properly installed and maintained security devices may only reduce the risk of a burglary, robbery or fire without warning, but it is not insurance or a guarantee that such will not occur or that there will be no personal injury or property loss as a result. Consequently, seller shall have no liability for any personal injury, property damage or other loss based on a claim the product failed to give warning. However, if it is held liable, whether directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage with respect to the products it sells, regardless of cause or origin, its maximum liability shall not in any case exceed the purchase price of the product, which shall be the complete and exclusive remedy against Seller.

By placing an order, customer accepts all terms, conditions and policies herein.
