Swaoff or its designated agent shall have the right to inspect any product prior to executing any remedy provided by this Limited Warranty. The Original Purchaser shall be responsible for safeguarding and holding any alleged defective product for Swaoff’s inspection. Swaoff shall have the option, in its sole discretion, to (a) instruct the Original Purchaser to ship the product, or any part thereof, to Swaoff at the Original Purchaser’s expense, (b) to have its designated agent inspect the product at the original purchaser’s premises, or (c) to require the Original Purchaser to supply to Swaoff digital photographs of the defective product, or any part thereof

THE WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE REMEDY SET FORTH ABOVE, AND EXCLUDES AND DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, LIQUIDATED OR OTHER DAMAGES DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY RELATING OR ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE PRODUCTS COVERED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY UNDER ANY THEORY OF LAW OR EQUITY (WHETHER UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, CONTRIBUTION, INDEMNITY, INFRINGEMENT, STATUTE OR OTHERWISE).

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights which vary from state to state.
How Disputes Will Be Handled
Any disputes arising from this Limited Warranty or your purchase of or use of any Swaoff product will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the Superior Court in Middlesex County, Massachusetts and the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts in all disputes arising out of or relating to these terms, your use of the Site or your purchase of or use of any Swaoff product.
You and Swaoff agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising from this Limited Warranty or your purchase of or use of any Swaoff (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding
arbitration. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND SWAOFF ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Swaoff otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org.) Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
