Customer shall make all payments of any such taxes to WGI without reduction for any withholding taxes, which shall be Customer’s sole responsibility. All taxes shall be paid by Customer to WGI unless Customer provides WGI with a valid certificate of exemption acceptable to the appropriate taxing authority.

If Customer fails to take delivery of the Products or fails to give WGI adequate delivery instructions in its Purchase Order, then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available, WGI may: (i) store the Products until actual delivery and charge Customer for the reasonable costs thereof, including insurance costs; or (ii) terminate the Contract forthwith and sell the Products.

Customer shall concurrently notify the carrier in writing of any such error, loss or damage and shall, in all cases, where possible, enter a note of the same upon the carrier’s bill of lading or other delivery receipt. If by reason of Customer’s failure to give any such notice as provided above WGI is unable to make recovery from the carriers in respect of the error, loss or damage complained of, then Customer shall be liable to pay for Products as though no such error, loss or damage occurred. No liability for Product shortages will be accepted by WGI unless such shortage is noted on the bill of lading or other delivery receipt.

Subject to the foregoing, any Products which WGI has agreed to deliver to Customer in accordance with Section 6(b) that are delivered in error or lost, damaged or destroyed during transportation will be replaced or rectified by WGI, as originally ordered or, if rectification or replacement is not practicable, WGI will issue a credit to Customer equal to any payments received by WGI for such Products.

- c. Any error, loss, damage or destruction of Product discovered by Customer in delivery shall not entitle Customer to rescind the remainder of a Contract.
10. Publications & Specifications.
Any and all specifications, descriptions, photographs, measurements, capacities or illustrations contained in any catalogues, price lists, brochures, leaflets, proposals, advertising matter, publications of WGI or a Supplier are intended to be illustrative and approximate only and shall not form part of a Contract or constitute a representation, warranty or condition regarding any Products unless specifically agreed by written agreement between the Customer and WGI. No employee or agent of WGI (or any entity acting on WGI’s behalf) has any authority to make any representation regarding the Products. Customer acknowledges that it has not been induced to accept these Conditions by any representations or statement, oral or written, not expressly contained herein.
- a. Customer understands that WGI is not the Supplier of the Products. Accordingly, all Products are sold subject to the express warranty terms, if any, specified by the original Supplier of the Products.

WGI will pass through to Customer all warranties that WGI is expressly authorized by the original Supplier to pass through to Customer.

Upon receipt of notification of such Claim, WGI shall notify Customer whether, as a matter of Supplier policy, the Claim must be handled directly with the Supplier or indirectly through WGI. In the event the Claim must be handled directly between Customer and Supplier, WGI shall provide contact information to enable Customer to contact Supplier. In the event the Claim will be handled by WGI, then WGI shall provide Customer with a return material authorization (“RMA”) for Customer to return the Products to WGI, and Customer shall return such Products to WGI in accordance with these Conditions and WGI’s then current RMA policy (which shall be made available to Customer upon request).
- c. No Products may be returned to WGI without a valid RMA number displayed on the Products packaging. Any Products returned without a valid RMA number displayed on the Products packaging will be refused or returned.

Replacement Product may be new or used. After the first ninety (90) days from receipt of the Product by Customer, and unless otherwise directed by WGI, the Customer must contact the Supplier directly for any warranty repair or replacement services.

WGI has no obligation to accept a return of Products where the Customer fails to comply with Supplier’s policy on Product returns.
- f. WGI shall not be liable or responsible for administering any defect or other claim which arises from normal wear and tear, misuse, negligence, accident, abuse, use not in accordance with Supplier’s Product documentation, modification or alteration not authorised by Supplier, or use in conjunction with a third party product. WGI reserves the right to determine whether any Products are defective.
13. Warranty Returns.
- a. Any Products returned pursuant to an RMA issued by WGI must be shipped to WGI within seven (7) working days of the date of such RMA. For all returned Products (whether pursuant to a warranty claim or Section 4 herein), Customer will request RingCentral to initiate an RMA request with WGI on Customer’s behalf. Following an RMA request, WGI shall issue an RMA number and issue a shipping label to RingCentral via electronic exchange.
- b. Customer irrevocably authorizes WGI to carry out any necessary tasks related to the repair or replacement of Products on behalf of Customer under these Conditions.
