Transit - Lost or Damaged
Title and risk of loss to all Products will pass to Customer upon shipment from Apple's shipping location. For products shipped pursuant to Apple's standard practices in all but the last week of every Apple fiscal quarter, Apple will issue credits or replace products returned due to damage in transit or that are lost in transit. For products shipped pursuant to Apple's standard practices in the last week of every Apple fiscal quarter, Apple will not issue credits or replace products returned due to damage in transit or that are lost in transit. Instead, Apple will provide third-party insurance for damaged or lost products with the Purchaser named as the loss payee.
When not shipping products pursuant to Apple's standard practices but instead shipping via a carrier selected by you, Apple will not issue credits or provide replacement products for products returned due to damage in transit or that is lost in transit.
Claims & Payment Process: For all product damaged or lost in transit in any week of the quarter, you must notify Apple Sales Operations within ten (10) business days from receipt of receiving damaged products, a short shipment, or not receiving an expected order.
For product shipped during all but the last week of Apple's fiscal quarters, Apple will either issue a credit or replace product damaged or lost in transit and place claims and/or tracers on your behalf. Apple will issue a credit or ship replacement product to you upon
receipt of the damaged product or confirmation of the lost product.
For product shipped during the last week of Apple's fiscal quarters, Apple will prepare and file a claim with the third party insurance carrier with the Purchaser listed as the loss payee. Once the insurance requirements are satisfied, you will receive a cheque from the insurance carrier for the purchase price of the product rather than receiving replacement product or credit from Apple. Or, instead of receiving the cheque from the insurance carrier, you can elect to assign insurance proceeds resulting from lost or damaged product to Apple and Apple will credit your account for the amount of the insurance proceeds. You will need to place a new order for replacement product. Apple believes the insurance policy claim limits will be adequate to cover any losses incurred by you. However, Apple will not be liable in the event the entire claim is not covered for any reason, including exceeding the claim limits. Title and risk of loss to returned product will pass to the insurance company upon shipment to Apple by you.
