The cost of field repairs performed by non-GPM personnel will not be reimbursed unless expressly authorized in writing by GPM prior to the repair.

The foregoing warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, expressed or implied, and all other obligations or liabilities on its part, and GPM. Neither assumes nor authorizes any other person to assume for it any other liability in connection with the sale of its products.
