CUSTOMER AGREEMENT


By indicating your agreement to this Customer Agreement (“Agreement”) on the Research Products Corporation (“Aprilaire”) website, you (“Customer”) have acknowledged that you have read this Agreement and have agreed to its terms:

 
 

1.  Purchase of Product and Installation; Payment:

Customer agrees to purchase and have installed in Customer's residence, by Aprilaire's assignee, the new, genuine Aprilaire consumer product(s) which Customer has indicated that he/she wishes to purchase and have installed on the Aprilaire website, on the terms in this Agreement, at the prices established by Aprilaire and posted on its website, which prices are agreed to by Customer. The Agreement is contingent upon Customer paying the price posted by Aprilaire on its website, by credit card or other secure means approved by Aprilaire. All Agreements shall be subject to final acceptance by Aprilaire at its offices in Madison, Wisconsin, and Customer agrees that no binding agreement shall exist with Aprilaire until an acceptance has been sent by email or regular mail to Customer.Customer agrees that Aprilaire will assign the Agreement to an assignee who will deliver the purchased products to Customer's residence and will install the purchased products therein, and that the selection of the assignee by Aprilaire shall be the sole right and responsibility of Aprilaire. The parties agree that Aprilaire will compensate the Aprilaire assignee on the terms agreed between Aprilaire and assignee, and that Customer will have no obligation with respect to payment for such goods or services to the assignee, unless Customer purchases additional goods or services directly from such assignee in which event the agreement and obligation for such additional items shall be solely between Customer and the assignee, and Aprilaire shall have no responsibility or liability for such additional matters. Aprilaire reserves the right to reject any and all customer agreements prior to the delivery of the product to Customer's residence, for any reason deemed sufficient by Aprilaire, including but not limited to, unusual or costly conditions at the residence of Customer which will materially increase the cost beyond that normally contemplated by Aprilaire or its assignee, or other matters that would constitute a force majeure event under applicable law, such as the inability to secure product or materials, inability to secure fuel or transport, war, riot, civil disturbance, terrorist attack, unusual or extreme weather conditions or similar circumstances not under the reasonable control of Aprilaire or its assignee. Customer agrees that upon receipt of notification of assignment by Aprilaire of the work hereunder, Aprilaire shall be released from all liability hereunder, except for the purchase price paid by Customer and Aprilaire's applicable standard consumer product warranty for the applicable product, a copy of which can be obtained from the Aprilaire web site and is supplied with the Aprilaire product. Upon notification of such assignment, all other obligations of Aprilaire under this Agreement shall become the obligation of the assignee. Customer acknowledges that the assignee may terminate this Agreement if assignee is unable to contact Customer within a reasonable time after receiving notice of the assignment to arrange for an appointment to deliver and install the product, or is unable to deliver and install the product within a reasonable time after assignment, in which case Aprilaire may either assign the Agreement to a new assignee or refund Customer's payment to Aprilaire, at its option.
