EDCO 2-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY

BY USING YOUR EDCO PRODUCTS YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL THE TERMS OF THIS WARRANTY. BEFORE USING YOUR EDCO PRODUCT PLEASE READ THIS WARRANTY CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS WARRANTY DO NOT USE YOUR PRODUCT. RETURN YOUR PRODUCT TO THE AUTHORIZED DEALER OF PURCHASE. SEE THE AUTHORIZED DEALER’S RETURN POLICY FOR DETAILS AND/OR ADDITIONAL RETURN REQUIREMENTS.

MAKING A WARRANTY CLAIM

Warranty claims must be made within the applicable Warranty Period through the Authorized EDCO Dealer where you purchased your Product, or via edco.bike. Visit www.edco.bike/support/warranty for additional instructions.  You must have proof of purchase to make a Warranty Claim –  Hand written receipts will not be accepted. Acknowledgement that you have read and agreed to the terms of this Limited Warranty, including the section titled BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS ACTION WAIVER (U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY) below, may be required for any warranty request. Note – EDCO reserves the right to refuse warranty service to any person who in EDCO’s sole discretion, abuses its products or warranty policy.

If EDCO determines that your Product is subject to this warranty, EDCO will, during the Warranty Period, in its sole discretion:

  1. Repair the Product at no charge for labor or parts
  2. Replace the Product with the same model Product
  3. Replace the Product with a comparable Product or offer an upgrade option should your Product be discontinued or otherwise unavailable

You shall be responsible for all taxes, fees, or other charges for shipping, transportation, postage or otherwise, except where prohibited.  Until received by EDCO, you shall bear the risk of loss.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, the above three remedies shall be your sole and exclusive remedies under this Limited Warranty and supersede any prior contrary or additional representations, whether oral or written.

What to Do If You Are Not Satisfied With Service?

If you feel EDCO has not met its obligations under this warranty, you may attempt to resolve the issue informally with EDCO. If you are unable to resolve the issue informally and wish to file a formal claim against EDCO, and if you are a resident of the United States, you must submit your claim to binding arbitration according to the procedures described below, unless an exception applies. Submitting a claim to binding arbitration means that you do not have the right to have your claim heard by a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will hear your claim.

BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS ACTION WAIVER (U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY)

UNLESS YOU HAVE BROUGHT AN ELIGIBLE CLAIM IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR HAVE OPTED OUT AS DESCRIBED BELOW, ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR EDCO PRODUCT, INCLUDING ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS WARRANTY, A BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY, OR THE EDCO PRODUCT’S SALE, CONDITION OR PERFORMANCE, WILL BE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION AND CONDUCTED BY A SINGLE ARBITRATOR APPOINTED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION, IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND ITS SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES. You may learn more about the American Arbitration Association and its rules for arbitration by visiting www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879. Since this warranty concerns a transaction in interstate or international commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act will apply.

The filing fees to begin and carry out arbitration will be shared between you and EDCO, but in no event will your fees ever exceed the amount allowable by the American Arbitration Association, at which point EDCO will cover all additional administrative fees and expenses. EDCO waives its right to recover attorneys’ fees in connection with any arbitration under this warranty. If you are the prevailing party in an arbitration to which the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes applies, then you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees as the arbitrator may determine.

The dispute will be governed by the laws of the state or territory in which you resided at the time of your purchase (if in the United States). The place of arbitration will be your county of residence (if in the United States). The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages, except as may be required by statute. The arbitrator will not award consequential damages, and any award will be limited to monetary damages and will include no equitable relief, injunction, or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator will be binding and final, except for any right of appeal provided by the Federal Arbitration Act, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Except as may be required by law, neither you nor EDCO nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration under this warranty without the prior written consent of you and EDCO.

ANY DISPUTE, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION, IN COURT, OR OTHERWISE, WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. EDCO AND YOU AGREE THAT NO PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED AS A CLASS ACTION, A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OR PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.

NO ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING WILL BE JOINED, CONSOLIDATED, OR COMBINED WITH ANOTHER ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES TO ANY SUCH ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING.

Exceptions to Binding Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver

IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER, THEN: (1) you must notify EDCO in writing within sixty (60) days of the date that you purchased the Product; (2) your written notification must be mailed to EDCO/HaHa Design Limited, 2301 Bayfield Building, 99 Hennessy Road, WanChai, Hong Kong, Attn: HaHa Design Secretary; and (3) your written notification must include (a) your name, (b) your address, (c) the date you purchased the product, and (d) a clear statement that you wish to opt out of the binding arbitration agreement and class action waiver.

In addition, you may pursue a claim in small claims court in your county of residence (if in the United States). In such case the provisions of the section titled “Binding Arbitration Agreement; Class Action Waiver (U.S. Residents)” will not apply.

EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS

IN SO FAR AS, SUCH WARRANTIES CANNOT BE DISCLAIMED, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WILL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD SET FORTH ABOVE.

EDCO WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA, COMMERCIAL LOSS, LOST REVENUE OR LOST PROFITS, OR OTHER INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF EDCO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF THE REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME STATES (INCLUDING NEW JERSEY) AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER REMEDY FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING EDCO’S NEGLIGENCE, ALLEGED DAMAGE, OR DEFECTIVE GOODS, NO MATTER WHETHER SUCH DEFECTS ARE DISCOVERABLE OR LATENT), EDCO MAY, AT ITS SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE OPTION AND IN ITS DISCRETION, REPAIR OR REPLACE YOUR PRODUCT, OR REFUND ITS PURCHASE PRICE. AS NOTED, SOME STATES (INCLUDING, NEW JERSEY) AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
