Up North Plastics Inc. issues a limited replacement warranty that Up North Silage Bags sold and properly used, in accordance with the enclosed instructions, as containers of forages, will not fail due to material or workmanship for the period [specified on the carton] beginning on the date of delivery to the original purchaser.

Section 2 - Limits of Limited Replacement Warranty

  2. Any and all claims for defects must be made within thirty (30) days from when the defect is discovered or reasonably should have been discovered.

Section 3 - Binding Arbitration

By use of this product it is agreed that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to said use shall be decided by binding arbitration in accordance with the United States Arbitration Act (Title 9, U. S. Code) in Cottage Grove, Minnesota. The Arbitration shall be conducted by a mutually agreeable arbitrator. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator, then each party shall pick an individual qualified to serve as an arbitrator and those two individuals shall then appoint a third arbitrator. Discovery shall be limited to one disposition and one set of twenty - five interrogatories per party. The arbitrator's award shall be final and may be confirmed by the judgment of a state or federal court in the jurisdiction where the arbitration occurred. The arbitrator(s) shall have no power or authority to award exemplary or punitive damages, or to alter, amend, or supplement any term, condition, or provision of this agreement. The parties consent to jurisdiction and venue in competent state and federal court in Minnesota. Each party shall bear its own attorney's fees, regardless of the outcome of the arbitration. All costs of arbitration, including but not limited to filing fees, arbitrator(s) fees, and stenographer fees, shall be shared equally by the parties.

Section 4 - Replacement Warranty Disclaimer

The limited replacement warranty herein is given in lieu of all other possible warranties, either expressed or implied, and by accepting delivery and using the material purchased accepts this warranty and only this warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

Section 5 - Severability

If any provision of this Warranty shall be found to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future laws, such provision shall be fully severable and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Any provision of this Warranty held illegal, invalid or unenforceable shall remain in full force and effect to the extent not so held. In lieu of the provision held llegal, invalid or unenforceable, there shall be automatically added as part of this Warranty a provision as similar in its terms to such invalid provision as may be possible and may be legal, valid, and enforceable.
