Subject to the provisions of these Standard Terms of Sale, the Limited Warranty that applies to all Goods sold is as follows:


DESiN LLC (“DESiN”) guarantees, subject to the terms below, that if your Obi is verified to be defective in material or workmanship at the time of delivery, DESiN will, at its discretion, either: (i) repair Obi using new or refurbished parts or (ii) replace Obi with a new or refurbished device.

Term: This Limited Warranty expires 12 months from the date of purchase or after the first 400 hours of Obi’s usage, whichever occurs first.

Limitations: This Limited Warranty excludes spoons, plates, placemats, and switches. Spoons, plates, placemats, and switches are non-returnable once used. Only manufacturing defects of materials or workmanship are covered when Obi is used properly and maintained in accordance to all included instructions. This warranty is void if Obi is improperly handled, dropped, put in a microwave, or exposed to excessive liquid(s), etc. In addition, any attempt(s) to open or dismantle Obi, including the robotic arm or base assembly, will void this warranty.  The warranty is limited to the initial purchaser of the Obi.  The term of warranty identified above also operates to limit any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness under State law.  Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.  DESiN LCC will not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages as a result of customer use.  Some States do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

Instructions:  In order to obtain warranty service, deliver the Obi in either its original packaging or packaging with an equal degree of protection to the service center designated by an authorized DESiN representative. An intact serial number or UPC is required for warranty claims. Customer is responsible for all shipping and handling charges for the return of the Obi for warranty service.  For information on how to obtain warranty service on your device,

Customer agrees to abide by all safety procedures and a warning provided by DESiN, and further agrees to use the Goods only in conformity with the instructions provided and the intended use(s) of the Goods.

11.  Trademarks: The purchase of Goods from DESiN does not entitle Customer to use, register, or otherwise identify Customer or its business with the name, trademark, service mark or other identity of DESiN or the name Obi or its likeness without express written permission from DESiN.  All such marks and goodwill associated with such marks remain the sole and exclusive property of DESiN.

12.  Taxes: Unless otherwise specifically provided on the face of any Purchase Order, the price for the Goods purchased does not include sales, use, excise or similar taxes, whether tariffs, duties, special assessments.  The amount of any such taxes, tariffs, duties and special assessments applicable to the Goods shall be paid by Customer in the same manner and with the same effect as if originally included in the purchase price.

14.  Entire Agreement: These Standard Terms of Sale, together with the terms and conditions contained on the face side of DESiN’s invoice or quotation, constitute the entire agreement between DESiN and Customer with respect to the matters contained therein, and supersedes all prior oral or written representations, proposals, correspondence, discussions, negotiations and agreements.  No course of prior dealings, acceptance or acquiescence in a course of performance and no usage of the trade shall be relevant to supplement, explain or modify any terms contained herein.  All representations, promises, warranties or statements by an agent or employee of DESiN that differ in any way from the terms and conditions hereof shall be given no effect or force.  No waiver or alteration of terms herein, including any added or different terms identified on any invoice, quotation, or Purchase Order, shall be binding unless in writing signed by an executive officer of  DESiN.

15.  Priority: In the event of any inconsistency among the provisions in these Standard Terms of Sale or the Purchase Order, precedence shall be given first to these Standard Terms of Sale, and second, to the special terms and conditions contained on the face of the Purchase Order and accepted, in writing, by DESiN.

16.  Governing Law: The sale of Goods pursuant to the Purchase Order shall be subject to and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan, United States of America, applicable to contracts made and performed in the State of Michigan without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Michigan or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Michigan.  Exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any action arising between the parties with respect to the Goods shall lie in the Courts of Oakland County, Michigan or in federal courts situated in the Eastern District of Michigan (Southern Division) if federal court jurisdiction is invoked.  The parties irrevocably consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of said courts and agree not to challenge or assert any defense to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of said courts including, without limitation, forum non conveniens. Customer and DESiN agree that, notwithstanding these exclusive jurisdiction and venue provisions, the parties intend to be bound by the mandatory arbitration clause articulated in these Standard Terms of Sale.  The parties hereby exclude the application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

17.  Severability: If any provision of these Standard Terms of Sale is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction or under any statute, regulation, ordinance, executive agreement or other rule of law, such provision shall be deleted or modified, at the election of Customer and DESiN, but only to the extent necessary to comply with such ruling, statute, regulation, ordinance, agreement or rule, and the remaining provisions of these Standard Terms of Sale and the Purchase Order shall remain in full force and effect.

18.  Non-Waiver: No change, modification or waiver of any provision of these Standard Terms of Sale shall be valid or binding unless it is accepted in writing, by DESiN.  A waiver by either party of any breach or failure to enforce any term or condition of these Standard Terms of Sale shall not in any way affect, limit or waive such party’s right at any time to enforce strict compliance with that or any other term or condition of these Standard Terms of Sale.

19.  Binding  / Non-Assignment: This contract shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the successors, and permitted assigns of Customer and DESiN, provided, however, that Customer may not assign any portion of its rights or delegate any portion of its obligations hereunder or under any Purchase Order without in each instance obtaining DESiN’s prior written consent.  Any attempted assignment by Customer or assignment by Customer of this contract without DESiN’s prior written consent is void.

20.  DESiN’s Performance Excused Upon Customer’s Breach: In addition to the rights and remedies conferred upon DESiN by law or in equity, DESiN shall not be required to proceed with the fulfillment of any Purchase Order or the performance of any contract if Customer is in default in the performance of any order or contract with DESiN, and in cases of doubt as to Customer’s financial responsibility, shipments under this order may be suspended or sent sight draft with bill of lading attached by DESiN.  Additionally, in the case of subsequent orders or, in the case of open Purchase Orders, DESiN is not required to proceed with the fulfillment of any subsequent order or perform such open Purchase Order if Customer is in breach with regard to any prior fulfilled orders, including, without limitation, non-payment.
