This Section 10 states Company's entire liability and Customer's exclusive remedy for infringement, misappropriation or related claims. 2 11. Warranty and Disclaimer (a) The warranty holds that the Equipment sold by the Company will be free from defects in workmanship and materials and will conform to applicable specifications for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of shipment or 1,200 hours of Neutron Generator operation, whichever comes first (the "Warranty period"), provided the Customer gives written notice to Company of any defect within said Warranty period or within fifteen (15) days thereafter. The Warranty on the Neutron Generator is pro-rated (that is, for example, if a Neutron Generator became defective after four months, the Customer would pay to Company four-twelfths of the price of a replacement of the Neutron Generator). Credit toward refurbishment or replacement will be given to Customer, at Company's option, and will be prorated from the date of original shipment or for the Warranty period, as specified. This Warranty is valid only if the accelerator head is operated with non-defective electronic and control equipment supplied by and in accordance with, written instructions by Company. (b) As a first resort, Field Service Engineering (FSE) personnel and/or subcontractors will provide on-site warranty service and maintenance and/or parts replacement as to the defective Equipment at Customer's location. In the event FSE or the subcontractors cannot perform the necessary diagnostics, maintenance and/or repair at Customer's facilities, Customer will be required to return for repair such defective Equipment to Company's designated repair facility at no cost within thirty (30) days after said notice. Company will be responsible for any transportation, insurance and all other charges to and from Company's designated repair facility and will promptly reimburse Customer any shipping and handling charges incurred by Company or its representatives. So long as Company is so notified of any such defect in workmanship or materials within the Warranty period, Company will correct the defect by making any necessary repairs or, at its option, by providing replacements for such defective Equipment, parts, or components thereof ("Parts"). It is recommended for efficiency and timeliness that replacement be made by FSE and/or subcontractors from a stock of Parts separately purchased by Company. Defective Parts, if replaced, will become the property of Company. All other charges, including without limitation, FSE travel, on-site labor, removal and reinstallation fees, shall be assumed by Company during the Warranty period. (c) Customer will pay Company the cost of all charges, to include but not limited to a reasonable charge for examination and rework, if the returned Equipment proves not to be defective or if at Customer's request Company performs work upon returned Equipment exceeding Company's obligations under this Warranty. (d) This Warranty extends only to the original Customer of the Equipment from Company. This Warranty does not apply to, and Company assumes no responsibility for, damage or defects due to any cause other than those specified above, including without limitation, damage or defects arising as a result of misuse, improper installation by non-authorized Company personnel or non-authorized subcontractors, accident, neglect, modification, repair by Customer, subjection to adverse conditions, demands exceeding performance levels required by applicable specifications or Company furnished operating instructions, failure to carry out recommended servicing, or from the use of components or replacement parts other than those supplied or approved in writing by Company. 3 (e) It shall be incumbent upon the Customer to show evidence of faulty parts or workmanship when operated or tested in any other manner. The liability of Company arising from the supply or use of the Equipment, whether it arises under Warranty or otherwise, shall be limited solely to correcting defects or providing replacement parts to the Customer as set forth herein above and is limited to the period of the Warranty. IN NO EVENT SHALL TOTAL LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL CONTRACT PRICE. IN NO EVENT SHALL COMPANY BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, NOR SHALL IT BE LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, EXCEPT AS HEREINABOVE PROVIDED.

THIS WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IS MADE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES. THE GOODS SPECIFICALLY COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY ARE OF AN EXPERIMENTAL NATURE. NO WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED.

COMPANY'S LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE DEFECTIVE EQUIPMENT. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN COMPANY AND CUSTOMER. COMPANY'S PRICING REFLECTS THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK AND BUT FOR THIS ALLOCATION AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, COMPANY WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT. 15. Indemnity.
