10.5. Your Responsibility for the Hardware. Except for with respect to our gross negligence or willful misconduct, you are responsible for the loss of, damage to, or the entire cost of any necessary service or repair of the Hardware. You have no right to sell, give away, transfer, pledge, mortgage, alter or tamper with the Hardware.
10.6. Material Defects. If you report to us, in writing, a material defect in the Hardware or the Premium Services, we will run a diagnostic test of the Hardware and Premium Services. If we determine that there is a material defect, we will send you replacement Hardware. Within 30 days of receipt of the replacement Hardware you must, at your own expense, uninstall, package and return the defective Hardware to Blue Ink Tech. If we haven't received the defective Hardware within 30 days of your receipt of the replacement Hardware, or if the equipment is returned in damaged condition, we will charge you $200 per unit of unreturned or damaged Hardware, so please promptly attend to your Hardware return. We reserve the right to charge these fees to the credit or debit card or other payment instrument that you have on file with us. If we are unable to reasonably correct the defect within 30 days of your report, we will refund you a proportionate amount of the fees paid for the Premium Services for those parts of the Premium Services that were inoperative from the time of the report to when the defect was resolved ("Material Defects Refund"). You agree that the your only remedy for such a defect is your right to a Material Defects Refund as provided in this paragraph.
10.7. Replacement Cables. Each set of Hardware ordered as part of the Premium Services is delivered with one set of cables (each an "Original Cable Set") for use with the Hardware. In the event that, within 30 days of receipt of an Original Cable Set, you discover that we have sent you either a defective Original Cable Set or an Original Cable Set that is incompatible with your vehicle(s) due to our error in interpreting the cable set which you specified when you requested the Premium Services (e.g., we sent you a 6-pin cable set when you requested a 9-pin cable set), you may, within 30 days after receipt of the Original Cable Set, request a replacement set of cables without charge (each replacement set a "Replacement Cable Set"). If after 30 days of receipt of the Original Cable Set, you request a Replacement Cable Set, we will charge you $30 for each such Replacement Cable Set that we deliver to you. If you have requested, and we have delivered, any Replacement Cable Sets to you, unless you have purchased such Replacement Cable Sets from us, then you must return the Original Cable Sets within 30 days of receipt of the Replacement Cable Sets. If we haven't received any Original Cable Sets issued to you within 30 days of your receipt of the Replacement Cable Sets, or if the Original Cable Sets are returned in damaged condition, we will charge you $30 per unreturned, late-returned or damaged Original Cable Set; so, please ensure that you return your cable sets on time. We reserve the right to charge these fees to the credit or debit card or other payment instrument that you have on file with us.
10.8. Limitations on the Material Defects Refund. The Material Defects Refund policy in Section 10.6 is null and void in the event of (a) any alteration, modification or special configuration or installation or de-installation of the Hardware or the embedded software without following Blue Ink Tech's written instructions; (b) accidents affecting the Hardware, misuse, tampering with, abuse, neglect or damage the Hardware; (c) use the Services not in the ordinary course of your business operations; (d) connecting the Hardware to an improper voltage supply; (e) water, weather or physical damage; or (f) use of the Hardware with accessories and/or devices which are not approved by Blue Ink Tech.
