Manufacturer shall have a reasonable period of time to make such replacements or repairs and all labor associated therewith shall be performed subject to reasonable working conditions. This Warranty is effective only if Customer gives prompt written notice to Manufacturer of any alleged defects in the materials or workmanship of the Product, which notice shall specifically describe the complained-of problem and shall state the date of sale and the location of the purchase of such complained-of Product. If Manufacturer elects to conduct repair or replacement at its facility, then Customer shall prepay transportation charges. Written approval from Richardson must be received prior to on-site repair or returning any merchandise and as a condition to such repair or replacement. Richardson shall not assume labor charges for unauthorized field repair. If returned Products are repaired or replaced pursuant to the terms of this Limited Warranty, then Manufacturer will prepay transportation charges back to Customer; otherwise, Customer shall pay transportation charges in both directions. Under no circumstance will Manufacturer pay for freight charges outside of the forty- eight (48) contiguous United States.
