 LIMITED WARRANTY:

All LSC Products are warranted to the first consumer purchaser to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of one year, with the exception of electronic products, which shall contain this same material/workmanship warranty for a period of 90 days, from date of purchase.  Any item found to be defective within that period will be repaired or replaced at LSC’s option without charge, provided that (1) the product was not misused; (2) its failure resulted from a defect in workmanship or material and not from damage in transit or damage due to corrosion or abrasion or other wear normally to be expected in the use of the product involved; (3) the product is delivered to LSC at the business address, together with proof of purchase; and (4) this warranty is superseded and invalidated if repairs are attempted by anyone other than LSC.  No other expense or liability will be assumed by LSC.  Purchaser’s remedies with respect to any product sold by LSC that is found to be defective because of LSC’s breach of the above warranty, express or implied, or because of LSC’s negligence, shall be limited exclusively to the right of repair or replacement at LSC’s option of such defective product.  In no event shall LSC be liable for claims (based upon breach of contract, breach of express or implied warranty, negligence or any other reason) for any damages whether direct, immediate, foreseeable, consequential or special or for any other expense incurred by reason of the use or misuse, sale or fabrication of products which do not conform to this warranty. Products sold but not manufactured by LSC are subject to the warranty provided by the manufacturer.  LSC’s warranty is supplemental to the manufacturer’s warranty, and consumer must seek remedy with the manufacturer prior to submitting a warranty claim to LSC for said items.  Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to purchaser.  This warranty gives the purchaser specific legal rights, and purchaser may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
