Limitation of Liability
Our products are intended for use only by trained professionals. Although we use the finest materials, we cannot guarantee freedom from injury. The user assumes all risk of injury and responsibility for applicability to any client. All merchandise is sold under this condition, which no representative of the company can waive.
The performance of necessary repairs or replacement of defective components or products is the sole and exclusive remedy under this warranty. Southpaw shall not be liable for indirect, incidental or consequential damages resulting from breach of the express written warranty set forth herein.
THERE ARE NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOUTHPAW SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, FOR INJURIES TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY, OR FOR ANY OTHER LOSS OR DAMAGE EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN.
Southpaw shall not be liable for any default or delay in performance if caused, directly or indirectly, by an act of God; war; force of arms; fire; the elements; riot; labor dispute; picketing or other labor controversy; sabotage; civil commotion; accident; any governmental action, prohibition or regulation; delay in transportation facilities; shortage or breakdown of or inability to obtain or non-arrival of any labor, material or equipment used in the manufacture of any product; failure of any party to perform any contract with Southpaw relative to the production of any product; or from any cause whatsoever beyond Southpaw’s reasonable control, whether or not such cause be similar or dissimilar to those enumerated.
Limitation of Assignment
Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the other, except that Southpaw shall have the right to assign them to any company with which it is affiliated or to any corporation into which it shall be merged, with which it shall be consolidated, or by which it, or all or substantially all of its assets, shall be acquired.
Although we try to make each Southpaw product fun to use, therapy is a serious business. Our products are not designed to be used for unsupervised play. Even a simple piece of equipment can be dangerous if used improperly. OUR PHOTOS AND SUGGESTIONS ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE RECOMMENDATIONS OR ENDORSEMENTS FOR ANY ACTIVITY. It is up to the user to determine whether a given activity is safe and appropriate for the client or situation.
Throughout the catalog we provide a recommended maximum working load for each product. WORKING LOAD IS THE COMBINED WEIGHT OF THE CLIENT AND THE EQUIPMENT, PLUS THE FORCE CREATED BY MOTION (bouncing, rotating). Please do not exceed this maximum.
The word “safety” as used in our catalog is not intended to imply the product is safe in all conditions, but simply that it has been tested and approved by Southpaw (see Limitation of Liability). For the safety of your clients, therapists, users, etc., check your suspended equipment on a regular basis.
