Purchase Terms and Conditions
Purchase Terms & Conditions
The warranty and return policy for all products sold hereunder (the "Products") is determined by the original equipment manufacturer and/or supplier. All products sold by WestPier Marine & Industrial Supply Inc. ("WestPier") are warranted only to the extent of the manufacturer’s/supplier’s warranty, and only to purchasers ("Buyers") for resale or for use in their business in Canada.
Products are warranted against defects in workmanship or materials only in accordance with the manufacturer’s warranty policy. Manufacturers of certain Products, such as fasteners, do not provide a warranty period.
Any part which is determined by WestPier to be defective in material or workmanship and returned to WestPier, shipping costs prepaid, will be repaired or replaced, at WestPier’s sole option, as the Buyer’s exclusive remedy.
WestPier has made a diligent effort to illustrate and describe the Products in its catalogues, on its website, and in store accurately; however, such illustrations and descriptions are for the sole purpose of identification, and do not express or imply a warranty or condition that the Products are merchantable, or fit for a particular purpose or that the Products will necessarily conform to the illustrations or descriptions. The Products are sold to Buyers on an "as is, where is" basis, and no warranty or condition or affirmation of fact, express or implied, other than as set forth in the limited warranty above is made or authorized by WestPier. Any and all representations and warranties, express or implied, legal, statutory, conventional or otherwise with respect to the Products (including, implied warranties as to merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose), whether pursuant to the Sale of Goods Act of any province or otherwise, are hereby expressly excluded and disclaimed.
Limitation of Liability
Except as provided for elsewhere herein, WestPier’s liability in all events for all damages, losses and causes of action (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) shall be limited in the aggregate to, and shall not exceed, the purchase price paid by the Buyer for the Product in question. In no case shall WestPier be liable for indirect, special, exemplary, punitive, consequential or incidental damages.
WestPier will make reasonable efforts to correct or other adjustment with respect to any Product which proves to be defective within the warranty period. Before returning any Product, write or call WestPier, giving date and number of original invoice and describing the defect. WestPier staff will give instruction as to the method of returning the Product.
Many provinces and locations have laws, codes and regulations governing sales, construction, installation and/or use of products for certain purposes, which may vary from those in neighboring areas. While WestPier attempts to ensure that its Products comply with such codes, it cannot guarantee compliance, and cannot be responsible for how Products are installed or used. Before purchase and use of a Product, please review the Product, and applicable national, provincial and local laws, codes and regulations, and be sure that the Product, as well as its installation and use, complies with them.
Hazardous Materials Information
For the information of Buyers, WestPier has obtained Material Safety Data Sheets ("MSDS") for all "controlled products" within the meaning of the Hazardous Products Act (Canada) and the Controlled Products Regulations made under that Act, in respect of Products offered for sale by WestPier. The MSDS in question conform with the requirements of provincial occupational health and safety legislation which regulates "hazardous material" and the applicable Workplace Hazardous Materials Information Systems Regulations made thereunder. Such MSDS are available at WestPier, or from the original equipment manufacturer or supplier, and will be provided to the Buyer of any such Product on request. The information and recommendations contained in the applicable MSDS supplied/prepared by the manufacturer are considered to be accurate and reliable. However, WestPier makes no warranty with respect to the accuracy or reliability of the information or the suitability of the recommendations. WestPier disclaims any and all liability to any user thereof.
Product cross-reference comparisons do not imply that all products compared are available, or in the case of functional equivalency, that past performance and other characteristics are comparable. For critical applications, review specifications prior to purchase.
Manufacturers’ Warranties and Sales Literature
Most of the Products listed in WestPier’s catalogues, on our website and in store are warranted to the end users by their manufacturer. As applicable, such warranties may supersede or exclude other stated warranties. Copies of such warranties are supplied with the Product or are available from the manufacturer. As a service, WestPier will obtain copies of warranties from the warrantor and will furnish them free of charge to customers who request them. Address requests to: 577 Elm Street, PO BOX 367, Port Colborne, Ontario L3K 1B7. Requests must include the WestPier order/invoice number and the manufacturer and model number of each Product for which a copy of the warranty is requested.
