Legal & Warranty Information
Banks AutoMind Programmer Disclaimer of Liability and Limited Warranty
THIS IS A HIGH-PERFORMANCE PRODUCT. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Please read these terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) carefully prior to installing and/or using any BANKS Product (the “Product”). By installing and/or using the Product you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions.
DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
The PURCHASER is responsible to fully understand the capability and limitations of his/her/its vehicle according to manufacturer specifications and agrees to hold Gale Banks Engineering, its owners, officers, directors, employees, and distributors (hereinafter “BANKS”) harmless from any and all damage resulting from the failure to adhere to such specifications. BANKS expressly disclaims any liability for personal injury or damages. PURCHASER acknowledges and agrees that the disclaimer of any liability for personal injury is a material term of this agreement and agrees to indemnify BANKS and to hold BANKS harmless from any and all claims related to the purchase and use of the Product. Under no circumstance will BANKS be liable for any damages or expenses by reason of the use or sale of any such Product. PURCHASER is responsible to obey all applicable federal, state, and local laws, statutes, and ordinances when operating his/her/its vehicle, and agrees to hold BANKS harmless from any violation thereof. BANKS assumes no liability regarding the improper installation or misapplication of its Product. PURCHASER is solely responsible for any and all warranty issues from the automotive manufacturer.
LIMITATION OF WARRANTY
Please see the enclosed warranty information card, or go to www.bankspower.com/warranty, for warranty information regarding your product.
BANKS warrants to the original PURCHASER that any parts purchased shall be free from defects in material and workmanship.
A defect is defined as a condition that would render the Product inoperable. Due to the subjective nature of sound BANKS does not warrant sound. BANKS liability is limited to the repair or replacement, at BANKS’ option, of any warrantable Product returned prepaid with complete service history and proof of purchase to the factory. A valid proof of purchase is defined as a legibly dated bill of sale from an authorized dealer. Repaired or replaced Product will be returned to the customer freight collect. If a replacement Product is not reasonably available BANKS will have the option to either replace the Product with a substantially similar Product or refund a pro-rated amount of the original purchase price for that specific Product. Any repaired or replacement BANKS Product will conform to the warranty for the unexpired duration of the warranty period for the original, nonconforming Product. Accepted warranty units which have been replaced become the sole property of BANKS. All BANKS Products are subject to the provisions stated herein regardless of mileage.
Product returned for warranty determination must be accompanied by a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number obtained in advance from a BANKS customer service representative. BANKS Is not responsible for the return freight on any delivery refused for not having an RMA number. BANKS will be the final authority on all warranty decisions.
This warranty shall not apply to any unit which has been improperly stored or installed; subjected to misapplication, improper operating conditions, used in race applications, used for off-road purposes, involved in accidents, subjected to neglect; or which has been improperly repaired or altered or otherwise mistreated or improperly maintained by the owner or his agent. This warranty is VOID for any new products purchased through auction websites.
Labor costs incurred by the removal and replacement of a BANKS Product, while performing warranty work, will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner. In no case does the obligation of BANKS exceed the original purchase price of the Product as indicated on the original bill of sale. This Warranty is non-transferable and coverage applies for the BANKS Product installed on the original vehicle for the original purchaser of those Products.
THE PRECEDING LIMITED WARRANTIES ARE THE EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES GIVEN BY BANKS FOR THE PRODUCT AND SUPERSEDE ANY PRIOR, CONTRARY, OR ADDITIONAL REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL. BANKS DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE
BANKS ALSO DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF USE, REVENUE OR PROFIT, COST OF CAPITAL, COST OF SUBSTITUTE EQUIPMENT, REPAIR LABOR, TOWING EXPENSE, RENTAL VEHICLES, HOTEL COSTS, OR ANY OTHER INCONVENIENCE COSTS. THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED AND SHALL NOT EXTEND TO ANY CONSUMER OR TO ANY PERSON OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER RESIDING WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CONTINENTAL U.S. OR CANADA. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
This agreement shall be governed by and interpreted under the laws of the State of California without regard to that state’s conflict of laws provision. You hereby irrevocably submit to a court of proper jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California, U.S.A., and any competent Courts of Appeal therefrom. If any provision in this agreement shall be considered unlawful, void, or otherwise unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this license and not affect the validity and enforceability of any other provisions.
Company reserves all rights not expressly granted here.
