THE EDSON LIMITED WARRANTYThe Edson Corporation ("Edson") warrants to the original consumer purchaser of this product, that it is free from defects in materials and workmanship. Edson's responsibility is limited to repair or, at Edson's election, replacement of any defective product and does not include any charges for removal, reinstallation, or incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Expiration: This warranty and any implied warranties shall expire one (1) year from the date of purchase; provided, however, that if any product is used for any commercial activity, this warranty shall expire ninety (90) days from the date of purchase. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied Warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
Exceptions: The above warranty does not apply: to metal finishes or coatings; to a product not installed or maintained following Edson's instructions, damaged by casualty or improper use, repaired or modified by other than Edson personnel, installed in a vessel or manner judged by Edson to be an inappropriate application of its product, or used with other products incompatible with the Edson product or which adversely affect its performance or durability.
Claim Procedure: (1) Immediately upon purchase, complete and mail to Edson the Owner Information Card accompanying Edson's equipment, if any. (2) Immediately upon discovery of any apparent defect, notify your vendor, the builder of your boat, or Edson, describing such defect; (3) the Vendor, boatbuilder or Edson shall make a preliminary determination as to whether a warranty claim is justified and, if so (4) upon request, Edson shall authorize return of the product. NO product shall be returned until authorized by Edson. (5) After such authorization, return the product, freight prepaid, with proof of purchase, if no owner information card has been filed with Edson, to: The Edson Corporation, 146 Duchaine Blvd., New Bedford, MA 02745. (6) If found defective, Edson shall repair or replace the product and return it at Edson's expense if destination is within continental U.S.A. or, if not, or if special freight required, at owner's expense.
Other Rights: This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
