8. PRODUCT RETURNS
A. Requirements – Purchaser must obtain a valid Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) number from Refinerz for all returns. RMAs will be issued, at Refinerz’s sole discretion, in accordance with these terms and conditions. Purchaser must provide its account number and all other information as required by Refinerz for all returns. Unless otherwise informed by Refinerz Services, RMAs are valid for twenty (20) calendar days from the date of issuance unless there are more restrictive manufacturer or publisher policies. Purchaser must allow for in-transit time for Products to be returned to Refinerz Services, as Refinerz must physically receive Products within the twenty (20) calendar days. RMAs will be issued for authorized returns under one of the following categories: (i) defective Products, (ii) stock balancing, (iii) billing or shipping discrepancies, or (iv) damaged Product. Purchaser is responsible for ensuring that (i) the RMA number is clearly visible on the address label of the Product packaging when it is returned to Refinerz Services; and (ii) NO WRITING SHALL BE DIRECTLY ON A MANUFACTURER’S BOX. Refinerz will refuse delivery of any boxes without a valid, clearly visible RMA number as noted above. The term “Over goods” as used herein shall mean unauthorized returns. Any Products received by Refinerz(i) without a valid RMA number, (ii) after being refused by Purchaser or Purchaser’s customer, excluding those damaged in transit from Refinerz to Purchaser or from Refinerz to Purchaser’s customer, (iii) after three (3) or more delivery attempts to the Purchaser or Purchaser’s customer, (iv) later than twenty (20) calendar days from the RMA date, (v) in a condition unsuitable for resale (excluding defective Products), or (vi) Products found not defective subsequent to Refinerz testing will be considered Over goods. Refinerz reserves the right to return Over goods to Purchaser or Purchaser’s customer, and/or to charge Purchaser a $50.00 processing fee per shipment plus related freight charges. If Purchaser refuses the shipment of Overgoods from Refinerz or sends back the Overgoods to Refinerz a second time without Refinerz Services’s prior authorization, Purchaser agrees to relinquish all right and title to and waives all claims against Refinerz for credit related to such Products. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Refinerzre serves the right not to authorize the return of Special Order Products or Products that are no longer in production or are being produced or published by a manufacturer or publisher that (i) is insolvent, (ii) has declared bankruptcy, (iii) is no longer an active Refinerz vendor, or (iv) will not accept returns from Refinerz Services.
B. Defective Product Returns – Defective returns are only for Products purchased from Refinerz that are inoperable or do not function in accordance with the specifications published by the manufacturer or publisher and are covered under the manufacturer’s or publisher’s warranty. All defective returns are subject to more restrictive manufacturer or publisher policies which will supersede the Refinerz return policies stated here. Purchaser may request an RMA for the return of defective Products, excluding Special Order Products, within thirty (30) calendar days of invoice date. Purchaser’s defective returns will be limited to a maximum of fifteen percent (15%) of the value of Purchaser’s Product purchases during the ninety (90) calendar days prior to the RMA date, less any prior defective returns during that same period. Upon receipt of the defective Product for which the RMA was issued, Refinerz may test the Products and may return to Purchaser, at Purchaser’s expense, any Products found not to be defective. Upon verification that the returned Product is defective, Refinerz may, at Refinerz’s sole discretion, either (i) ship Purchaser a replacement Product, or (ii) provide Purchaser a credit equal to the lesser of the Product’s invoice price or current replacement value, less any applicable charges or fees. Refinerz reserves the right to require Purchaser to return defective Products directly to the manufacturer or publisher for replacement according to its defective Products return policy. Refinerz shall not be obligated to repair, replace, or issue credit to Purchaser for Products rendered defective, in whole or in part, by causes external to the Products, including, but not limited to, catastrophe, power failure or transients, over voltage on interface, environment extremes, improper use, maintenance or application of the Products or use of unauthorized parts. Purchaser shall bear all risks of loss when returning defective Products.
C. Stock Balance Returns – Stock balance returns are only for Products purchased from Refinerz that are unopened and unused and can be re-sold as new. All stock balance Products returned must be in the manufacturer’s original packaging and in condition suitable for resale including, but not limited to, without price tags or stickers or additional shrink wrapping, clean, undamaged and complete (“Stock Balance Condition”). All stock balance returns are subject to more restrictive manufacturer or publisher policies, which will supersede the Refinerz return policies stated here. Purchaser may request an RMA for the return of Products in Stock Balance Condition, except for Special Order Products, within sixty (60) calendar days of invoice date. Purchaser’s stock balance returns will be limited to a maximum of five percent (5%) of the value of Purchaser’s Product purchases during the ninety (90) calendar days prior to the RMA date, less any prior stock balance returns during that same period. Stock Balance returns that exceed the allowable limit will, at Refinerz’s discretion, either be returned to Purchaser, at Purchaser’s expense or be charged a fifteen (15%) restocking fee. Upon receipt of the Product for which the RMA was issued, Refinerz will verify the condition of the Product. Any Products that are not in Stock Balance Condition will be considered Overgoods. Refinerz will return Overgoods to Purchaser and will charge Purchaser a $50 processing fee per shipment returned to Purchaser plus related freight charges. Additional fees may apply to returned Products; e.g., re-box, label removal, re-shrink, etc., that are not in Stock Balance Condition. Upon verification that the returned Product is in Stock Balance Condition, Refinerz will issue a credit to Purchaser equal to the lesser of the Product’s invoice price or current replacement value less any applicable charges or fees. If Refinerz elects to restore returned Product to Stock Balance Condition instead of returning it to Purchaser, the credit to Purchaser will be net of Refinerz’s costs to return the Product to Stock Balance Condition. Purchaser shall pay all costs, including all freight charges, and bear all risks of loss when returning Products to Refinerz Services.
D. Damaged Product Returns – Damaged Product returns are only for Products purchased from Refinerz and shipped via Refinerz’s carrier of choice and that are damaged in transit from Refinerz to the Purchaser or from Refinerzto the Purchaser’s customer. If damaged Product is not refused by Purchaser, Purchaser shall document damage in writing on the carrier waybill or bill of lading and notify Refinerz and request an RMA within two (2) business days of receipt of such Product. Failure to notify Refinerz and request an RMA within such time shall be deemed an acceptance of the Product as of the date of shipment.
9. BILLING AND SHIPPING DISCREPANCIES
Billing and shipping discrepancies are for Products purchased from Refinerz that were invoiced or shipped incorrectly. These include lost shipments, short shipments, wrong sales, wrong shipments and pricing/invoice errors. Purchaser may request an RMA or credit memo, as applicable, for verified billing and shipping discrepancies within ten (10) calendar days of invoice date. In addition, Purchaser must notify Refinerz of any billing discrepancies related to Purchaser’s authorized returns within thirty (30) calendar days of RMA date. Such notice shall be reasonably detailed and shall specify the discrepancy. Failure to give such notice within the time specified herein shall be deemed a waiver of Purchaser’s rights to claim such discrepancy.
