Terms Of Purchase

Applies to all customers buying product from Corkco

Product Selection and Suitability

Most products offered by Corkco are obtained from multiple supply sources, located throughout the United States and internationally. Many states and localities have codes and regulations governing sales, construction, installation, and/or use of products for certain purposes, which may vary from those in neighbouring areas. While Corkco attempts to assure that its Products (“Product”) comply with such codes, it cannot guarantee compliance, and cannot be responsible for how the Product is installed or used. Corkco makes every reasonable attempt to ensure the quality of these supply sources and the Products they offer. As these Products are dynamic and versatile, Corkco shall not be responsible for how Products are used or installed and the Product's conformance to local or regional codes or regulations. Review the Product materials and application, and relevant code, regulations or ordinances, to be certain that the Product, its installation, and use will satisfy these requirements. In no event will Corkco be responsible for any loss or damage arising out of Purchaser's improper selection, misapplication or misuse of a Product.

Limited Warranty

Corkco warrants, for a period of one (1) year after delivery, that all Products delivered to you ("Purchaser") hereunder shall be free from any defects in material or workmanship and in conformity with any applicable specifications. Such warranty only extends to Purchaser. Purchaser shall inspect Products within a reasonable time after receipt, and shall promptly notify Corkco of any claimed defect or nonconformity. Any Products determined to be defective in material or workmanship must be returned, with an invoice and/or control number to a Corkco branch or authorized location, shipping costs to be prepaid by Purchaser, within the one-year warranty period. Correction shall be made or replacement Products shall be delivered by Corkco , unless prevented by conditions not subject to Corkco's control. This warranty shall not be applicable in the event of the misapplication or misuse of the Product by Purchaser. Corkco makes no warranties to those defined as consumers in the Magnuson-Moss Warranty-Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act. THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED AND Corkco COMPANY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Disclaimer

NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IS MADE BY Corkco , OTHER THAN WHAT IS PROVIDED IN THE ABOVE WARRANTY SECTION. Corkco DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR PRODUCT DEFECT CLAIMS THAT ARE DUE TO THE MISUSE, IMPROPER SELECTION OR MISAPPLICATION OF THE PRODUCT.

Limitation of Liability

IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR INJURIES TO PERSONS OR TO PROPERTY OR LOSS OF PROFITS OR LOSS OF FUTURE BUSINESS OR REPUTATION, WHETHER BASED ON TORT OR BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL Corkco'S LIABILITY FOR PURCHASER'S DIRECT DAMAGES EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT.

Cancellation and Returns

Corkco must approve cancellation of any order prior to shipment. Orders for Special or Non-standard Products (not in the catalogue) may not be cancelled or returned. Any returns for shipping errors, damage or loss upon delivery must be reported within 10 days of the delivery date. Except as otherwise agreed, Products will not be accepted for return after 30 days from the date of delivery to the Purchaser. Any cancellation or returns accepted after 30 days may be subject to a restocking fee and other charges, for which the Purchaser shall be responsible. All returns should be made to a Corkco branch or as otherwise designated by Corkco , and must be in resalable condition and accompanied with an Invoice.

Security Interest

Purchaser grants to Corkco a priority lien, purchase money security interest in the Products and any accounts receivable or cash from the resale of the Products until full payment is received, with respect to any sales on open account. Purchaser shall complete and cooperate with the submission of any documents necessary to validate or enforce Corkco's rights hereunder.

Published Product Information

Corkco reasonably attempts to maintain up-to-date and accurate pricing, availability and usage information about the Products contained in its catalogs. However, this information is dependent upon information distributed by and obtained from a manufacturer or supplier and is subject to change at any time. Corkco reserves the right to revise catalog information at any time, without notice, and Corkco will not be responsible for any pricing errors contained therein. Corkco MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, CONCERNING THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN ITS CATALOGS.

Force Majeure

Corkco will not be liable or held responsible for any delays or losses resulting, directly or indirectly from Acts of God, severe weather conditions, labor disputes, governmental actions, inability to obtain permits, licenses, raw materials or shipments of Product, war, riots, shortages and any other circumstances or causes beyond our reasonable control.

Governing Law

These Terms of Purchase shall be construed, interpreted and performed according to the laws, excluding conflict of law rules, of the Province of Ontario, Canada. Any legal action must be filed and commenced within one year after it arises. The failure of either party to assert a right hereunder or to insist upon compliance with any term or condition will not constitute a waiver of that right or excuse any subsequent nonperformance of any such term or condition by the other party. 

Miscellaneous

The relationship between Corkco and Purchaser shall be that of an independent contractor. If any of the provisions contained herein are deemed illegal or unenforceable, such determinations shall not affect the validity of the remaining terms and conditions and the remaining terms will continue in force and effect to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. Purchaser shall not assign any order or interest therein to another party, without the written consent of Corkco.
