DISCLAIMER OF EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES
ELON® MAKES NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS OF THE MERCHANDISE FOR ANY PARTICULAR USE. Elon® shall not be liable for any loss or damage directly or indirectly arising from the use of merchandise delivered or for consequential damages resulting from the use of the merchandise. Elon® shall in no way be responsible for wear or breakage that may occur during or after the installation of the tile. Although tile has a hard surface, it is not wear resistant and is not guaranteed to be wear resistant. All stone, glass, ceramic, terra cotta, metal, composites, and any future and/or unmentioned tile can chip, nick, and scratch, even if the tile is sealed before and/or after its installation. Mexican tiles, both glazed and unglazed, and Slate are generally irregular in size, thickness, color and texture. The surface of Mexican tile, both glazed and unglazed, is often irregular and rarely flat. Surface spalls and efflorescence occurring before or after installation are not uncharacteristic for unglazed tiles. None of these irregular features or characteristics constitutes a defect in the tile. THIS WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OF FITNESS AND OF ANY OTHER OBLIGATION ON THE PART OF THE SELLER.
PAYMENT: All past due invoices are subject to a 15% service charge per month.

LIMITATION OF DAMAGES: Any earlier provisions of these conditions of sale to the contrary notwithstanding, the purchaser may not recover from Elon® as damages any sum in excess of the purchaser's purchase price of the material. In the event it is determined that material is in fact defective, nevertheless, Elon® will not be responsible for any charges or expenses incurred by the purchaser to remove or reinstall the tile.
RETURNS/HOLDS: ELON® DOES NOT ACCEPT RETURNS. ELON® WILL HOLD MATERIAL FOR 14 DAYS. THEREAFTER, MATERIAL MUST BE SHIPPED OR CANCELLED.
