      1. If you choose to refuse the order, you must inform VSESPL immediately so we can investigate. Vertical Standard Elevator Systems shall then have the option of re-inspection at the customer’s plant or its own. Defects that do not impair service shall not be cause for rejection.

No claim will be allowed for any products damaged by the customer. Expenses incurred in connection with claims for which Vertical Standard Elevator Systems is not liable will be charged to the customer.
