Customer acknowledge and agrees that Tulip is not responsible for the Customer Applications, or for providing support to Customer’s Users for such Customer Applications even if the Customer Application is used in connection with the Tulip Offering.
2. Orders; Delivery.
a. Tulip ships to the locations set forth at https://tulip.co/shipping-returns/
Tulip does not ship to PO boxes. The price of shipping is not included in the advertised price of Tulip Hardware. Shipping is added based on the Tulip Hardware purchased, shipping choices and location during checkout online or as set forth in an Order Form.
b. Unless otherwise specified, Customer is responsible for estimating and covering any duties, taxes, fees and/or other costs associated with shipment to Customer’s location. Upon checkout online, duties and taxes may be estimated and charged. Tulip is not responsible for additional fees or costs nor is Tulip responsible for communicating with local authorities to facilitate transit. Tulip cannot give Customer an estimate of these costs in advance of shipment.
c. By purchasing Tulip Hardware for shipment outside of the United States, Customer acknowledges and assumes responsibility to conform with local laws and regulations while importing and using the Tulip Hardware. Customer acknowledges that Tulip is not responsible for regulatory compliance within Customer’s country. Tulip is not responsible for the cost of replacement of any Tulip Hardware held indefinitely by Customer’s local authorities.
d. Tulip will deliver the ordered Tulip Hardware Carriage Paid To the order address (CPT, according to Incoterms 2010), whereby the place of performance for the delivery of the goods owed by Tulip is the address provided at the time of the order. Customer may choose from shipping modes or delivery options offered by Tulip. Tulip shall not be responsible for any other delivery methods unless the parties have agreed otherwise. Customer is responsible for the cost of the shipping method chosen. Place of performance for any warranty claims is the same place as for the delivery. If Customer requires the shipment of the goods to a place other than the place of performance, the risk of accidental loss, accidental deterioration, or delay to Customer shall pass to Customer or subsequent carrier (Freight Forwarder) upon delivery to the Freight Forwarder or the Customer if picked up by the Customer. If the Customer is in default of acceptance the risk of accidental loss, accidental deterioration or delay passes to the Customer.
e. If there is a default of acceptance by the Customer, or any delay in delivery for which the Customer is responsible, Tulip can demand compensation for the resulting damage as well as the additional expenditure required to fulfill the order. This includes the storage and maintenance of the Tulip Hardware.
f. Tulip endeavors to ship items ordered as soon as possible. Shipment and delivery schedules may be impacted by regional and federal holidays. Given uncertainties in shipping, product availability, and circumstances outside Tulip’s control (weather etc.) Tulip cannot guarantee exact shipping dates.
g. When completing an order, Customer should receive an e-mail confirming the order shortly after completing the transaction. If Customer’s contact does not receive the e-mail, the contact should check his or her spam or junk folder before contacting Tulip. Tracking information will be emailed once the order’s shipping information is generated. If Customer has any questions about the delivery of a specific item please contact Tulip through Tulip’s web form at www.Tulip.com.
h. Once Customer’s order has been prepared for shipment or has shipped, Tulip is unable to change the shipping address. Tulip chooses which carrier will deliver the shipment, and some shipments require a signature. Each shipment notification email states whether a signature is required. After the first delivery attempt, the carrier may make subsequent delivery attempts before returning the shipment to Tulip. Follow the tracking information and contact the carrier for detailed delivery information.
i. Orders can be canceled only before the order has shipped. Bank and credit card processing fees will not be refunded for any canceled orders.
3. Limited Hardware Warranty.
Tulip’s warranty obligations for all Tulip Hardware sold by Tulip are limited to the terms set forth below. To be eligible for this Limited Hardware Warranty the Tulip Hardware must be purchased through Tulip or through a Tulip authorized reseller with a valid proof of purchase. Before returning an item, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, to explain the reason for the return, the details of Customer’s original order, and whether Customer wants a refund or an exchange. As appropriate, Tulip will issue you an RMA number, which Customer need to include in the package for the returned item, along with a copy of the original order information.

Tulip warrants Tulip Hardware against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from the date of retail purchase by Customer (“Warranty Period”). If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Warranty Period, as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and Tulip’s only liability, Tulip will either 1) repair the hardware defect at no charge, using new or refurbished replacement parts, 2) exchange the Tulip Hardware with Tulip Hardware that is new or reconditioned by Tulip or that has been manufactured from new or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the original Tulip Hardware. Tulip may request that Customer replace defective parts with new or refurbished user-installable parts that Tulip provides in fulfillment of its warranty obligation. Replacement Tulip Hardware or parts, including a user-installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by Tulip, assumes any remaining warranty for the original Tulip Hardware or ninety (90) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for Customer. When Tulip Hardware or parts are exchanged, any replacement item becomes Customer’s property and the replaced item becomes Tulip’s property. Parts provided by Tulip in fulfillment of its warranty obligation must be used in Tulip Hardware for which warranty service is claimed. When a refund is given, the Tulip Hardware for which the refund is provided must be returned to Tulip unless specified otherwise.
