(ii) Delivery of the Hardware will be subject to availability of the Hardware. However, any dates quoted for delivery of the Hardware are approximate only, and Korbyt will not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Hardware, regardless of cause.
B Title to Hardware. Title and ownership of the Hardware will pass to Customer upon Customer’s payment for the Hardware.
C Risk of Loss. Risk of loss to the Hardware will pass to Customer upon delivery of the Hardware to the carrier. Customer assumes risk of loss or damages to the Hardware while the Hardware is in transit to Customer. Within ten (10) business days of receipt of the Hardware (or three calendar days for third party displays/TVs), Customer will inspect the Hardware and inform Korbyt of any damages thereto. Should Customer not notify Korbyt of any damage incurred during shipment of the Hardware within the applicable period, Korbyt will be relieved of all responsibility and liability with respect to the damaged Hardware, and Customer will be responsible for any damage claim, repair or replacement of such damaged Hardware. These terms also apply to any Hardware provided to Customer in connection with any warranty for Hardware. Notwithstanding anything in the Agreement and this Attachment to the contrary, risk of loss and title thereto is not subject to Customer’s acceptance of the Hardware.
A Limited Warranty. Korbyt warrants that the supplied Korbyt manufactured Hardware will be materially free from defects and workmanship for a period of one (1) year, commencing on the date of shipment, subject to the following limitations:
(i) The limited warranty extends only to Customer and is not assignable or transferable to any subsequent purchaser or end user;
(ii) Unless Customer purchases an Extended Warranty Plan with the Advance Shipper option as described below, Customer will bear the cost of shipping the Hardware to the Customer technical support department of Korbyt. Customer will bear the cost of shipping the Hardware back to Customer after the completion of service, or to ship replacement Hardware if Korbyt elects replacement as Customer’s remedy under this limited warranty;
(iii) Customer complies with any additional warranty procedures that may be provided from Korbyt from time to time;
(iv) A repair on warranted Hardware is good only for the balance of the warranty, or for ninety (90) days from the date of the repair, whichever is longer;
(v) at Customer’s expense, uninstall, pack and ship any Hardware needing Support to the address provided in the Return Material Authorization; and
(vi) install any replacement Hardware when received;
B Warranty Exclusions. The limited warranty provided for in Section 2(A) and the warranty remedies provided for in Section 2(C) herein do not cover:
(i) Third Party Hardware;
(ii) defects or damages resulting from use of the supplied Hardware in other than its normal and customary manner, or in an environment or in a manner or for a purpose for which the Hardware was not designed;
(iii) defects or damages from incorrect or abnormal use, abnormal conditions (including without limitation, results of force majeure event), power surges or other irregularities, failure to perform recommended maintenance or improper maintenance, improper handling, or storage, exposure to moisture or dampness, unauthorized modifications, unauthorized connections, unauthorized repair (successfully or not), or had parts replaced by any party other than Korbyt or an Korbyt authorized repair facility, misuse, neglect, abuse, accident, alteration, improper installation, or other acts which are not the fault of Korbyt, including damage caused by shipping, spills of food or liquid;
(iv) breakage or damage unless caused directly by defects in material or workmanship;
(v) claims in which the technical support department at Korbyt was not notified by Customer of the alleged defect or malfunction of the supplied Hardware during the applicable limited warranty period;

(vii) Hardware that was not purchased by Customer from Korbyt or its authorized resellers;
(viii) claims caused by Third-Party Materials;
(ix) damage due to normal wear and tear;
(x) consumables such as fuses and batteries; or
(xi) any other cause not wholly and directly attributable to a defect in the Hardware.
C Warranty Remedies. As Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any warranty claim with respect to Korbyt manufactured Hardware, during the warranty period, Korbyt will, at its sole option, either repair, replace or refund the purchase price of the Hardware of any supplied Hardware that is covered under this limited warranty. Korbyt will not be required to repair or replace more than the components of the Hardware actually found to be in breach of the limited Hardware warranty provided in this Schedule, and repaired or replaced Hardware will be warranted under this Schedule only for the remaining portion of the original warranty period. Korbyt may elect, at its sole option, to use functionally equivalent re-conditioned, refurbished or new units or parts of any units. In addition, Korbyt will not back-up any data or Content that Customer has added to the Hardware. Where Customer returns any Hardware, and after evaluation, Korbyt finds no non-conformity to the warranty, Korbyt may return the Hardware to Customer, and Customer shall pay Korbyt its standard “no trouble found” (“NTF”) or equivalent fee.
D Third-Party Hardware. Third-Party Hardware warranty and support is only available from the manufacturer, except under separate agreement. Korbyt does not provide any services for Third-Party Hardware that is not manufactured by Korbyt. These products fall under the normal pass-through warranties provided by the manufacturer. Korbyt will pass-through to Customer any applicable Third-Party Hardware warranties from Third-Party Providers that Korbyt is legally able to transfer.
3. HARDWARE EXTENDED WARRANTY PLANS
Two Extended Warranty Plans which continue the repair or replacement benefit for non-conforming Hardware are available for purchase by Customer. Either type of plan must be purchased only at the time, and as part, of the original Hardware purchase for the full term of the applicable plan: (a) Hardware Extended Warranty Plan with the Advance Shipper feature: Priced at a percentage of the then current list price of all Hardware covered, as specified in the current price list, per year, Customer may select the Hardware Extended Warranty Plan with the Advance Shipper feature for the first three (3) years beginning with the original purchase of Korbyt Hardware, providing a total of three years’ warranty coverage. If Customer has purchased this feature, and it notifies Korbyt that Hardware provided under this Agreement does not conform to the applicable warranty, and Korbyt has issued the appropriate return materials authorization: (i) Korbyt will ship, at Customer’s expense, replacement Hardware to Customer; Customer may select and pay to receive the replacement Hardware the next business day after receipt of Customer’s notice, or pay for and use standard shipping instead; and (ii) Customer will provide paid transport to return the defective Hardware to Korbyt’s facilities once uninstalled by Customer. Korbyt Networks Smart Screens are not eligible for Advance Shipper Support and (b) Hardware Extended Warranty Plan (without Advance Shipping feature): In the alternative, Customer may select a Hardware Extended Warranty Plan as priced at a lower percentage of the current list price of all Hardware covered, as specified in the current price list per year, that does not include the Advance Shipper feature. If selected, this Plan begins upon expiration of and continues the one (1) year limited Hardware warranty described under Section 2 of this Schedule for two additional years, providing a total of three years’ warranty coverage. With either Extended Warranty plan:
(i) Third Party Hardware is excluded from the Extended Warranty plans;
(ii) The terms of Section 2 of this Schedule, Warranties shall apply to any Extended Warranty plan, except as expressly excluded or changed by this provision;
(iii) For both plans, Customer will be responsible for removal and reinstallation of the Hardware and any associated costs and for shipping costs each way for the type of delivery desired (overnight or standard shipping);
(iv) Korbyt may elect, at its sole option, to use functionally equivalent re-conditioned, refurbished or new units or parts of any units as replacement units;
(v) Korbyt may substitute a functionally equivalent model if the Customer’s model of Hardware is no longer commercially available; and
(vi) Korbyt retains the right to impose an NTF or equivalent fee for returned Hardware where Korbyt finds no non-conformity to the warranty.
