Returns & Warranty
All sales are subject to the following General Terms and Conditions for products and services purchased or provided from Mitegen, LLC. ('Mitegen'). Any other terms and conditions, including the customer's ("Customer") own, are not applicable and are explicitly refused, whether referred to by the Customer when ordering or not, including terms printed on Customer purchase orders.
Any changes or amendments to these Terms and Conditions, any additional agreements, and other declarations are only valid when agreed upon by Mitegen in writing.
Please inspect all items upon receipt and notify Mitegen immediately of any damaged items or issues. In case of damaged items, the buyer MUST retain the shipping box and any other documentation of damage as this may be needed for us to claim against the shipper. Damaged products will be replaced at no additional cost to Customer. Returns can be accepted through the issuance of a Return Merchandise Authorization, subject to approval from Mitegen, if we are notiﬁed within 7 working days of receipt of the items.
Digital pictures may be requested of the damaged items to help facilitate the claim. Please contact [email protected] to discuss any needed returns.
If Mitegen shipped an incorrect order to you in error, Mitegen will take all reasonable steps to correct the error as soon as possible. The Buyer must return the items for credit, replacement, exchange or refund. No shipping costs will be applied for items that are returned because of an error caused by Mitegen. Contact [email protected] or call us to discuss any needed returns.
If the buyer ordered an incorrect product, contact Mitegen to discuss options. Mitegen may at its sole discretion allow the return of the items for replacement exchange or refund. All return goods of this nature are subject to a 25% restocking fee. The shipping costs for items returned as a result of a Customer error will be paid by the buyer. Contact [email protected] or call us to discuss any needed returns.
Mitegen warrants all products to meet Mitegen specifications. The warranty period is six months beginning on the shipment date, except if the nature of the product requires immediate use or use within a period of time that is shorter than six months.
Under this warranty, Mitegen will replace defective products free of charge. If, after a free replacement, quality specifications are still not met, the Customer can ask for a reduction in price, or cancellation of the order. Any further claims of the Customer, of any kind, especially for damages or compensation, are explicitly excluded.
Mitegen does not warrant products that have been mixed or otherwise combined with other chemical products by the Customer. Mitegen states explicitly that all products are for research and laboratory use only. Mitegen will therefore deliver only to public institutions of research, diagnosis, and teaching, and to technical businesses and companies. Mitegen disclaims any warranty for faults in products (like chemical impurities) which originate from improper handling or storage, for application in the household or to humans or animals. No products from Mitegen may be transferred to private persons. The Customer is responsible for compliance with state, national and international laws and regulations governing the shipping, storage, processing, and trade of products. Mitegen will not warrant damages to the product arising from noncompliance with such laws and regulations.
Mitegen will only be liable for warranty if the defect is indicated promptly and in writing. For defects which are visible upon delivery of the product, this indication must be given within seven days of delivery.
Warranties are not transferable if products are sold or transferred by the Customer to another individual, group, institution or entity.
