6. Changes to or Discontinuation of Tools

To better serve our customers or for any other reason, we may elect to make changes in tool design or construction at any time.

8. Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice / Claims of Copyright Infringement & Related Issues (17 U.S.C. § 512 et seq.)

We respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe work has been reproduced in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may notify our agent by providing the following information:

  • Identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at the site;

  • Identification of the material that you claim is infringing and needs to be removed, including a description of where it is located so that the copyright agent can locate it;

  • Your address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, so that the copyright agent may contact you about your complaint; and

  • A signed statement that the above information is accurate; that you have a good faith belief that the identified use of the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf in this situation.

Upon obtaining such knowledge, we will act expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material. Please be aware that there are substantial penalties for false claims. If a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, you may submit a counter notification to our agent. A valid counter notification is a written communication that incorporates the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the poster;

  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

  • A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification;

  • Your name, address, and telephone number; a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the U.S., for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found; and that you will accept service of process from the complainant.

Notices of the foregoing copyright issues should be sent as follows: By mail: Tekton, Inc., 3707 Roger B Chaffee SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49548, Attention: DMCA Designated Agent; By email: legal@tekton.com. If you give notice of copyright infringement by email, an agent may begin investigating the alleged copyright infringement; however, we must receive your signed statement by mail or as an attachment to your email before we are required to take any action. This information should not be construed as legal advice. For further information about the DMCA, please visit the website of the United States Copyright Office at http://www.copyright.gov/onlinesp.

THIS SITE, INCLUDING ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION CONTAINED WITHIN IT OR ANY SITE-RELATED SERVICE, IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITH ALL FAULTS, WITH NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUALITY OF INFORMATION, QUIET ENJOYMENT, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

14. Limitation of Liability Regarding Use of Site

Tekton and third parties mentioned on this Site are not liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, punitive, or other damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, those resulting from lost profits, lost data, or business interruption) arising out of or relating, directly or indirectly, in any way to the sale, handling, or use of tools, the Site, Site-related services, content or information contained within the Site, and/or any linked website, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages.

To the extent any aspects of the foregoing limitations of liability are not enforceable, the maximum liability of Tekton to you with respect to your use of this Site is $100.

15. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Agreement

We will try to work in good faith to resolve any issue you have with the Site, including any products or services ordered or purchased through the Site. However, there may be rare cases where we may not be able to resolve an issue to your satisfaction. In such cases, you and Tekton agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Site, including products or services sold or made available through the Site, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. By agreeing to these Terms, you agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Tekton are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and any other contractual relationship between you and Tekton. The arbitration shall take place at a location in Kent County, Michigan, U.S. that is reasonably convenient for the parties, or another location that is mutually agreed upon by the parties. All documents, materials, and information in the possession of each party that are in any way relevant to the dispute shall be made available to the other party for review and copying no later than 30 days after the notice of arbitration is served. The arbitrator(s) shall not have the authority to modify any provision of these Terms or to award punitive damages. The arbitrator(s) shall have the power to issue mandatory orders and restraint orders in connection with the arbitration. The decision rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered in conformity with the decision in any court having jurisdiction. The agreement to arbitration shall be specifically enforceable under the prevailing arbitration law.

YOU AND TEKTON AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Furthermore, unless you and Tekton both agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claim, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
