The Customer's placement of an order for Products and/or Apparel constitutes the Customer's unconditional acceptance of these terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are subject to change without prior written notice at any time in the sole discretion of Mac Tools.

2. Items Sold for Personal Use, Not for Resale. Mac Tools are sold primarily through a network of independent distributors, although tools may also be offered through authorized retailers. Because Mac Tools’ distributor network may not reach all potential customers, Mac Tools has elected to offer tools for direct purchase from Mac Tools.

Persons interested in becoming Mac Tools distributors should contact Mac Tools for information.

3. LIMITED WARRANTY for Products.

Warranties for particular products may also be found in the product information posted at www.mactools.com. Mac Tools will, at its option, repair, replace or refund the purchase price of any item found to be defective in materials or workmanship during the applicable warranty period. IMPORTANT – PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER DEFECTS OR DAMAGE:
  1. after the warranty period expires
  2. if the Product was not originally purchased directly from Mac Tools or an authorized Mac Tools distributor or retailer;
  3. from repair services not performed by Mac Tools or an authorized Mac Tools distributor; or
  4. arising from accidents, tampering, modification, misuse, abuse, or failure to maintain.
This warranty also does not cover parts, such as O rings, that wear, or consumable products, such as drill bits, saw blades, grinding discs, sanding discs, knife blades, files, O2 sensors and batteries. Mac Tools may charge for the replacement of these parts or consumable products.

Mac Tools strongly encourages you to send returns with a tracking number or delivery confirmation number.
