hBARSCI Products

We warrant, solely to the original purchaser of such products through our site, that products we manufacture and that bear the hBARSCI manufacturing label (“hBARSCI Products”), will materially conform to our standard specifications in effect on the date of shipment for the shorter of ninety (90) days from the date of delivery or the shelf-life of such product. For clarity, we do not warrant that the quality, safety, efficacy or performance of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the products or Service will be corrected.

You must notify us of defective or non-conforming products within the warranty periods specified in the limited product warranty set forth herein or within thirty (30) days after you learn of the facts giving rise to the claim, whichever first occurs, and your failure to give notice of any claim within the applicable time period shall be deemed an absolute and unconditional waiver of such claim. Our liability under this limited product warranty will not extend to any products that are abused, altered, improperly stored, or misused by you or anyone else, or that become defective or non-conforming through the actions or inaction of you or anyone else, including through the combination with other chemicals or products. You will have the obligation of substantiating the chain of custody of products following their delivery to you. We are not responsible for the impact of factors including, without limitation, sanitation, humidity, and operator practices (including, without limitation, misuse, abuse, and/or negligent operation, or unauthorized modifications, adjustments, and/or repairs) on serviced equipment and will not be required to provide the warranty set forth herein on equipment subjected to such factors.  All formulae, drawings, illustrations, descriptive matter, and particulars contained on our site, marketing materials, and any technical advice or other statements given by us or our representatives with respect to the use of products or any results that may be obtained therefrom, are indicative only and do not form a part of these Terms and are not representations and warranties of any kind.

At our request, you shall promptly forward to us any allegedly defective or non-conforming product or a representative sample thereof, as specified by us.  If any product warranted hereunder proves defective or non-conforming, as determined by us in our sole reasonable discretion, our sole and exclusive obligation and your sole and exclusive remedy hereunder will be for us, at our option, to: (i) replace at no cost to you, any such defective or non-conforming product with a non-defective or conforming product; (ii) in the event a return is authorized, credit your account for all amounts paid with respect to the defective or non-conforming product upon our receipt of, and opportunity to evaluate, the defective or non-conforming product; or (iii) repair or have repaired (including, through re-working or re-processing, as applicable) a defective or non-conforming product. In the event of replacement, the replacement product will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period.  For purposes of these Terms, a defective or non-conforming product is defined only as a product that does not meet the limited product warranty set forth herein, and excludes products that fail to meet any fitness of use by you or any unusual or unique operating conditions.


You hereby waive any and all actions, claims, suits, and demands of any type whatsoever (including, without limitation, claims based on strict liability, products liability, tort, or contract) against us, our subcontractors, or our agents, or any of our or their respective employees, for personal injury, wrongful death, or property damage arising out of or in any way connected with the Service or your receipt, handling, storage, possession, transportation, disposal, purchase, resale, or use of the products (whether used singly or in combination with other products), except, in the case of hBARSCI Products, to the extent caused by the gross negligence of us, our subcontractors, or our agents, or any of our or their respective employees.



We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.

Payment for products shall be remitted at the time of order through our site, in United Stated Dollars, using any of our accepted forms of payment. In addition, you remain responsible for any taxes and other surcharges or third-party fees that may be applicable to your orders.

Our acknowledgement of an order means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been accepted or shipped or that the price or availability of an item has been confirmed. We reserve the right to change or update product information and to correct errors, inaccuracies or omissions at any time without prior notice. If we determine that there were inaccuracies in our product information, we will cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.

Title and risk of loss in all products will transfer to you upon our delivery to our designated carrier or shipping agent at our or our supplier’s facility, as applicable. We are not responsible for shipping. You shall immediately inspect all deliveries for shipping damage upon receipt. In the event of loss or damage in transit, you should file your own claim with the carrier.
