LIMITED WARRANTY SCHEDULE – SYNERON PRODUCTS

THE LIMITED WARRANTY IN THIS SCHEDULE APPLIES ONLY TO SYNERON EQUIPMENT.

What Is Covered. Syneron Candela grants a limited warranty for the Equipment as specified in this Schedule.  This Limited Warranty covers defects in material and workmanship in the (i) Syneron Candela systems, (ii) applicators purchased at the same time that a System is purchased (the “Bundled Applicators”), and (iii) applicators purchased separately from a system (the “Stand-Alone Applicators) identified in the Equipment Schedule contained in the Sales Agreement.  

Who Is Covered. This Limited Warranty extends solely to the Purchaser who purchased the Equipment from Syneron Candela. This Limited Warranty is non-transferable and non-assignable by the Purchaser.  Syneron Candela shall have no obligations for claims made under a transferred warranty in the event that the Purchaser attempts an assignment of the Purchaser’s rights under this Limited Warranty. 

How Long. The term of this Limited Warranty (the “warranty period”) is a period of three (3) years from the initial date Syneron Candela delivers any System(s) and any Bundled Applicator(s) to Purchaser.  The warranty period for any Stand-Alone Applicator is a period of three (3) years from the initial date that Syneron Candela delivers any Stand-Alone Applicator(s) to Purchaser.  To the extent that Syneron Candela determines, in its sole discretion, that it should replace any of the Equipment, Syneron Candela warrants any such replacement System, Bundled Applicator, Stand-Alone Applicator, or part for the duration of the original warranty period.  

Suspension of Warranty Coverage. Service coverage under this Limited Warranty will be automatically suspended (i) during any periods of non-payment of any charges due to Syneron Candela by the Purchaser (including if a cheque does not clear); and (ii) during any period that Purchaser retains possession of a Loaner system (defined below) and is being assessed Rental Charges (defined below) by Syneron Candela.  Limited Warranty service coverage shall recommence when Syneron Candela receives payment in full of any and all charges due.  Note that although warranty service will not be available during any period of non-payment, the warranty period will continue to run during such time. 

What Syneron Candela Will Do. Syneron Candela will, within the applicable warranty period, at Syneron Candela's sole option, repair or replace any defects in material or workmanship in the Equipment without any costs to the Purchaser for parts or labour (except as specifically stated below).  To the extent that Syneron Candela determines that it should replace a System, Syneron Candela may do so using another System that is of the same model and year of manufacture and in good working order.

What Is Not Covered. This Limited Warranty does not cover any Equipment, including applicators, which has been damaged by accident, misuse (including improper storage), abuse, and/or modification of the Equipment, in the Purchaser’s transportation of the Equipment, by an act of God, use of the Equipment in violation of the instructions, the use for any purpose other than one for which the Equipment was manufactured, damage caused by unauthorized repair, or the use of unauthorized parts, or the use by unauthorized person and/or requests for repair for any problems that Syneron Candela cannot replicate or problems claimed by the Purchaser (collectively and individually “Excluded Repairs”).  This Limited Warranty also does not cover any equipment, products or accessories sold or supplied with the Equipment which are manufactured by a third party. Syneron Candela will bill the Purchaser for Excluded Repairs at $150 per hour plus the costs of the parts, shipping costs and Syneron Candela’s then current handling fee for the inspection and diagnosis of each of the Excluded Repairs. 

How to Obtain Service. To obtain service under this Limited Warranty, the Purchaser must first contact Syneron Candela by telephone (a “service call”), toll free +1 (866) 259-6661.  In making a service call, the Purchaser must provide Syneron Candela with sufficient information to identify the Equipment for which warranty service is desired (the “affected Equipment”) including model number, serial number, specifics regarding the Purchaser’s complaint, and the Purchaser’s shipping address.  The Purchaser representative placing the service call (“Purchaser’s Technician”) must have personal experience with the affected Equipment, including specific knowledge regarding both the use of the Equipment and the nature of the problems which led to Purchaser’s service call.  Upon receipt of a service call, the Purchaser’s Technician and Syneron Candela’s technician must attempt to resolve the service issue through diagnostic services performed over the telephone.  In the event that Syneron Candela cannot replicate the problem or problems identified by the Purchaser during the service call, the Purchaser may then ship the affected Equipment to Syneron Candela’s service centre for inspection and diagnosis. 

Charges related to Service. If Syneron Candela determines that the affected Equipment is covered by this Limited Warranty, there will be no charges assessed to Purchaser for the repair or related shipping and handling of the Equipment in connection with the warranty service. If Syneron Candela cannot replicated the problem or problems identified by the Purchaser during diagnostic testing at Syneron Candela’s service centre, Syneron Candela will bill and the Purchaser agrees to pay Syneron Candela a fee of USD $1,500 (except for Aurora applicators with 2 heads or less, for which a fee of $1,000.00 will be charged) for each System returned to Syneron Candela for inspection and diagnosis.  The Purchaser also will be responsible for all shipping charges (incoming and outgoing) related to the shipment of any Equipment to Syneron Candela for inspection and diagnosis.  Syneron Candela will also bill the Purchaser and the Purchaser agrees to pay for shipping costs and Syneron Candela’s then current handling fee to return Equipment in cases where the Purchaser delivers the incorrect System for warranty service. If any piece of Equipment to be shipped to Syneron Candela for service under this Limited Warranty is not ready for shipment at the time the carrier designated by Syneron Candela arrives at the location designated by the Purchaser, Purchaser agrees that Syneron Candela will assess and the Purchaser will pay a charge of $20. 

Service Loaner. If Syneron Candela’s technician determines that it is necessary for the Purchaser to deliver any Equipment to Syneron Candela for warranty service, Syneron Candela will use its best efforts to deliver a service loaner system (the “Loaner”) to the Purchaser within one business day following such request, provided that: (i) the Purchaser completes the telephone service call diagnostic assessment and requests a Loaner prior to 3:00 p.m. PST one business day before the next business day on which a Loaner system is scheduled for delivery by Syneron Candela; and (ii) a Loaner is available for use at the time of Purchaser’s request.  As a condition of use of a Loaner, the Purchaser must deliver the affected Equipment to the designated Syneron Candela service centre for inspection and diagnosis within 24 hours of the Purchaser’s receipt of the Loaner.  In the event that the Purchaser fails to deliver the affected Equipment to Syneron Candela as required, Syneron Candela shall have the right to immediately reclaim the Loaner and assess Rental Charges (described below) to the Purchaser. Except for the return of the Loaner to Syneron Candela, Purchaser may not move or relocate a Loaner, regardless of the Purchaser’s need for the Loaner at a different location.  The Loaner shall at all times be considered personal property of Syneron Candela and the title to the Loaner shall not pass to Purchaser but shall remain in Syneron Candela.  Purchaser shall not remove, conceal or otherwise interfere with the title or any ownership markings of Syneron Candela affixed to the Loaner.  Purchaser shall keep the Loaner free from all liens, charges and encumbrances of any kind whatsoever.  Syneron Candela disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the Loaner.  In no event will Syneron Candela have any obligation or liability for damages, to Purchaser arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of the Loaner. 

Charges Related to Service Loaner. Provided that Purchaser delivers the Equipment to Syneron Candela’s service centre within 24 hours of receipt of the Loaner, Purchaser shall be entitled to use of the Loaner free of charge until such time that Purchaser’s Equipment has been returned to Purchaser.  If Purchaser does not timely deliver the Equipment to Syneron Candela’s service centre following receipt of the Loaner, Purchaser will be charged for use of the Loaner as provided below.  Purchaser shall return the Loaner to Syneron Candela within 24 hours following Syneron Candela’s return of Purchaser’s System.  

Failure to Return Equipment. Purchaser agrees that if Purchaser fails to deliver the affected Equipment to Syneron Candela within 24 hours after receipt of a Loaner or replacement applicator, and such failure continues for a period of 72 hours, then (i) Purchaser shall be assessed rental charges of $500 per day for each day per Syneron Candela system and $150 per day for each day per Syneron Candela applicator (“Rental Charges”) until the affected Equipment is received by Syneron Candela and such Rental Charges shall be immediately due and payable by Purchaser to Syneron Candela; (ii) Purchaser’s Limited Warranty for the System shall be suspended and be without further force and effect until the affected Equipment is received by Syneron Candela; and (iii) Syneron Candela may immediately and without notice take possession of the Loaner wherever found; and (iv) Purchaser shall reimburse Syneron Candela for all amounts expended or charges incurred by Syneron Candela, including reasonable legal fees, in connection with any action at law, in equity or otherwise by Syneron Candela to recover possession of the Loaner or otherwise enforce this Limited Warranty.  All Rental Charges shall be immediately due and payable by Purchaser to Syneron Candela.
Failure to Return Loaner. Purchaser agrees to return the Loaner to Syneron Candela within 24 hours following return of Purchaser’s Equipment.  In the event that Purchaser fails to return the Loaner to Syneron Candela as required and such failure continues for a period of 72 hours following the return of Purchaser’s Equipment: (i) Purchaser shall be assessed Rental Charges for each day until the Loaner is returned to Syneron Candela and such Rental Charges shall be immediately due and payable by Purchaser to Syneron Candela; (ii) Purchaser’s Limited Warranty for the System shall be suspended and be without further force and effect until the Loaner is returned to Syneron Candela; (iii) Syneron Candela may immediately and without notice take possession of the Loaner wherever found; and (iv) Purchaser shall reimburse Syneron Candela for all amounts expended or charges incurred by Syneron Candela, including additional shipping and handling costs, and reasonable legal fees, in connection with any action at law, in equity or otherwise by Syneron Candela to recover possession of the Equipment or otherwise enforce this Limited Warranty.  All Rental Charges shall be immediately due and payable by Purchaser to Syneron Candela. Purchaser shall be responsible for the shipping and handling costs for shipments of a Loaner to/from a location outside Canada. 

Exclusions. The Limited Warranty specified in this Schedule do not cover any Equipment, including applicators, which has been (i) damaged by accident, misuse (including improper storage), abuse, in the Purchaser’s transportation of the Equipment, or by an act of God, (ii) modified; (iii) used in violation of our instructions for use and operation, (iv) used for any purpose other than one for which the Equipment was manufactured, (v) damaged by unauthorized repair, or the use of unauthorized parts (vi) use by unauthorized person; and/or involves requests for repair for any problems that Syneron Candela cannot replicate or problems claimed by the Purchaser (collectively and individually “Excluded Repairs”).  This Limited Warranty also does not cover any equipment, products or accessories sold or supplied with the Equipment which are manufactured by a third party.

Syneron’s UltraShape V3, UltraShape Power and SlimShape devices contains functionality that stores individual patient treatment-related information on the device hard drive.  This enables providers to view information about past treatments when a patient returns for further treatment.  This patient information may be protected under the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and its implementing regulations, as amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (“HITECH”) Act.  Covered entities (including covered health care providers) are not permitted to disclose patient protected health information (“PHI”) except for limited purposes.  Accordingly, Syneron’s customers are required to preserve a copy of all patient data from the device and to erase all patient information from their UltraShape V3, UltraShape Power and SlimShape devices prior to sending the device to Syneron for service.  Please be informed that, in the event that Syneron’s service department receives a device containing PHI, then Syneron will erase all PHI on the device prior to servicing the device.  Syneron disclaims all liability for any erased or lost patient data and information.

LIMITED WARRANTY SCHEDULE – ULTRASHAPE

THE LIMITED WARRANTY IN THIS SCHEDULE APPLIES ONLY TO ULTRASHAPE EQUIPMENT.

Syneron Candela warrants to Purchaser that, subject to Purchaser’s payment of all fees due to Syneron Candela: (i) for a period of one (1) year following delivery of the Equipment, the Equipment will conform materially to its specifications provided by Syneron Candela.  Syneron Candela’s sole obligation and Purchaser’s exclusive remedy for any failure of Equipment to perform as warranted above, is the correction or replacement, at Syneron Candela’s option, of the non-conforming Equipment item, provided, however that Syneron Candela has been notified by Purchaser of the non-conformity prior to expiration of the warranty period set forth above.  

Each Transducer will operate in accordance with its specifications provided by Syneron Candela for one (1) year.  Syneron Candela’s sole obligation and Purchaser’s exclusive remedy for any failure of a Transducer to perform as warranted above is the refund of the pro rata portion of the purchase price paid by Purchaser corresponding to the number of pulses (or other relevant criteria under the then-applicable warranty) for which the Transducer was used relative to the maximum permitted pulses (or other criteria, as applicable), provided, however that Syneron Candela has been immediately notified by Purchaser of the non-conformity.  Consumables are provided without warranty of any kind.  Replaced Equipment, including Transducers or parts must be returned to Syneron Candela within thirty (30) days of a claim made under warranty in accordance with instructions provided by Syneron Candela; failure to do so will result in a full charge for the part.

Without limiting any provisions limiting Syneron Candela’s liability under the agreement for sale of the Equipment, the warranty set forth herein will not apply, and, Purchaser will reimburse Syneron Candela for any costs and expenses incurred in connection with goods or services provided in the event: (i) the Equipment or any part or component thereof has been used other than in accordance with this Agreement, the product documentation or other written operating instructions or has been subject to negligence or accident by anyone other than Syneron Candela including, with respect to Transducers, use in excess of the maximum period determined by Syneron Candela, or product or parts identification labels are removed or altered; or (ii) the Equipment or any part or component thereof has been modified, repaired, serviced, maintained or altered by anyone other than Syneron Candela; or (iii) the Equipment or any part or component thereof has been combined with software, hardware or other equipment not supplied by or Ultra Shape Ltd. (“Ultrashape”); or (iv) the Equipment or any part or component thereof has been installed not in accordance with the written installation instructions provided by Syneron Candela, or other than by Purchaser; or (v) the Equipment or any part or component thereof has been damaged by causes beyond the control of Syneron Candela; or (vi) in the event the Equipment  has been modified without Syneron Candela’s consent; or (vii) in the event the Equipment  has been sold by the Purchaser not in compliance with this Agreement or is sold or used on a regular basis outside Canada or by a person other than the Purchaser.  Purchaser will cooperate with Syneron Candela in Syneron Candela’s evaluations of claims made under the warranty set forth herein.  Purchaser will reimburse Syneron Candela for all expenses and costs involved in Syneron Candela’s efforts in the event the problem for which service is sought is not covered by the warranty set forth herein.

The provisions of the foregoing warranties and the warranties contained elsewhere in this agreement are in lieu of any other warranty, whether express or implied, written or oral (including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose), all of which are expressly excluded.
The Purchaser must notify Syneron Candela of any defect within forty-eight (48) hours after the defect first comes to the Purchaser’s attention. Any replacement Equipment shall be, at Syneron Candela’s sole option, new or remanufactured products, and are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days, whichever is longer. This limited warranty is not transferable nor assignable and is subject to limitations.  All claims that the Equipment (as delivered) does not conform to technical specifications published by Ultrashape must be made in writing within ten (10) days after delivery to the Purchaser, and any claims not made within that period shall be deemed waived and released. Our sole responsibility with respect to such claims shall be, at our sole option, to repair or replace any Equipment or component which we determine to be defective.

The limited warranty in this Schedule is not intended for Equipment used in a mobile environment.  Mobile usage will require a separate special mobile warranty package. To the extent that the Sales Agreement indicates a warranty period longer than one (1) year or any other provisions inconsistent with this Limited Warranty Schedule, this Limited Warranty Schedule shall be deemed to control.  Service coverage under this Limited Warranty will be automatically suspended during any periods of non-payment of any charges due to Syneron Candela by the Purchaser (including if a cheque does not clear).  Limited Warranty service coverage shall recommence when Syneron Candela receives payment in full of any and all charges due.  Note that although warranty service will not be available during any period of non-payment, the warranty period will continue to run during such time.
