  12. Product Warranties.
    1. Disclaimer: WESTART HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RELATED TO PRODUCTS SOLD BY THIRD PARTIES OR AFFILIATES OF WESTART, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT. THIS DISCLAIMER DOES NOT AFFECT THE TERMS OF THE MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY, IF ANY.
    2. Westart’s Warranty: Customer understands that Westart is not the manufacturer of the products purchased by Customer through the Site. In purchasing the products, Customer is relying on the manufacturer’s specifications only and is not relying on any statements, specifications in brochures, photographs or other illustrations representing the products that may be provided by Westart. Westart provides a warranty for the electronic Dolc-e Vita moped and the lithium-ion batteries for one (1) year. This one-year warranty starts from the date of purchase. Westart’s warranty is transferable (at no cost) from the original owner to a subsequent owner as long as the original invoice and the Certificate of Origin from Westart are included in the resale and the original owner submits a warranty transfer request in writing. Westart’s warranty includes parts and labor only. Westart’s warranty does not include: maintenance; normal wear and tear; improper assembly; improper repair; mistaken application of the instructions and warnings provided by in the user’s manual or by a Westart representative (whether verbally or in writing); installation or modification of components, parts, or accessories not originally intended for or compatible with the Dolc-e Vita moped; damage or failure due to an accident, misuse, abuse, or neglect; rust, corrosion, or defects which are caused by extreme environmental conditions to which the vehicle could be exposed (ex. ice, snow, seawater, etc.); use for purposes other than for which the Dolc-e Vita scooter, or power kit, were designed or involved in commercial use, unless the product is built and explicitly promoted for commercial use; flat tires; decorative or convenience items that are not critical to scooter function. In addition to these actions which will void Westart’s warranty, the battery warranty will be voided in the event the following actions occur: opening of the battery case; exposing the battery to direct flame or the immersion of the battery in any liquid medium; exposing the battery (or the scooter) to ambient temperatures above 120°F (49°C) or below -22°F (-30°C) for more than 24 hours at a time; dropping the battery onto hard surfaces, sufficient to crack the outer casing. Westart will only repair or replace pursuant to this warranty a power pack that exhibits a nominal storage capacity reduction of greater than 30% of the published nominal capacity, as measured by a Westart technician. When applicable, Westart will replace the part or product with a comparable part or product that may be new or refurbished. Any and all postage, towing charges and time loss incurred are the responsibilities of buyer. Customer must request for warranty coverage with supporting documents via email at joinus@dolce-vita-staging.bv6bm9j6-liquidwebsites.com or by calling Westart’s warranty service at (424) 245-9120, or by taking the product to an authorized Westart retailer. Only a Westart Service Technician will determine if you have an issue that is covered by Westart’s Warranty. Warranty repairs are to be performed by Westart trained technicians only. All transportation costs and shipping damages incurred while submitting parts for repair or replacement are the responsibility of the Customer. Some warranty parts (such as engine) must be sent back at your expense in order to receive free diagnosis, repair or exchange. Under certain conditions, in the sole discretion of WESTART, and only with written pre-authorization from us, Warranty repairs may be performed by a third-party repair facility.
  13. Safety. Riding Dolc-e-Vita mopeds can be dangerous. Westart has no control over the usage of any part or product. Customer shall read and comply with all safety instructions in the documentation for each product, and to exercise good judgment as to the proper selection, installation, use and maintenance of any part. Westart recommends that all Dolc-e Vita moped riders take an approved training course. Electric mopeds can be hazardous to operate.
