8.1 Limited Warranty. Subject to the other provisions of this Section 8 and any applicable Offering Specific Terms, we warrant that: (a) our non-software Offerings will conform to our Documentation, when stored under conditions specified by us and under normal, proper and intended usage, until the expiration of the Offerings’ stated shelf life, or, if none is stated, for the greater of one year after delivery to you or as stated on your order form or sales receipt and; (b) the most current release versions of our Embedded Software will perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation. We do not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of our Offerings, and do not warrant the accuracy or performance of any diagnostic Offering beyond that described in the Documentation. You acknowledge that no diagnostic Offering provides 100% accuracy. We do not warrant expendable or consumable parts, such as fuses, batteries, bulbs, cables, power cords, adaptors, calibrators, print heads, keyboards, mice, ribbons, tapes, CDs or other supplies or media, or Third-Party products, such as printers or non- IDEXX software; all of which are provided to you on an "as-is" basis. Third-Party product suppliers may provide their own warranties. We do not warrant any software patch, update, upgrade, modification or other enhancement provided by us beyond the original warranty period for that software, which begins with your initial license from us. The benefit of the limited warranty described in this section extends to you only if you are the end-user of new Offerings purchased or licensed directly by you from an authorized distributor or us.
8.2 Our Warranty Obligations. If we breach the limited warranty provided in Section 8.1, we will, at no additional charge, during the warranty period: (a) for non-software Offerings, at our option either repair or replace a nonconforming Offering with new or serviceable used parts or products that are equivalent or superior to new parts or products in performance, and will return such product to you, transportation and insurance prepaid, and; (b) for Embedded Software, use commercially reasonable efforts to provide modifications to any nonconforming software in an attempt to make it conforming. Our warranty on replacement parts and product repairs extends only for the remainder of any original warranty period. If we are unable to repair or replace a nonconforming product after reasonable efforts, or to make software conforming, we will refund your purchase price or license fee paid to us for the Offering, for the period of non-conformance, and if requested by us, upon your return of the Offering. Except as described in applicable Offering Specific Terms, the terms of this Section 8.2 shall be our exclusive liability and your sole remedy for breach of any IDEXX warranty.
8.3 Warranty Support Process. We provide warranty support during normal business hours at our service locations, except on holidays.

Our support personnel will guide you with telephone or electronic support to attempt to correct your reported problems. If telephone or electronic support is not successful, we will provide you with further instructions. We have no obligation to provide on-site service. If it is necessary to return the Offering, you must do so to our designated facility for examination. Offerings may not be returned unless we have issued you a return material authorization.

Some Offerings may also require you to trade in existing equipment in order to participate.
12.6 Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Master Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right.
12.7 Severability. If any provision of these Master Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable because it is invalid or in conflict with any law of any relevant jurisdiction, that term is to be modified to make that term enforceable, and the balance of these Master Terms will continue in full force and effect, such change to be made in a manner to maximize the enforcement of the remaining terms.
