Failure of OWLET to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement, or to exercise any election or option provided herein, or to require at any time performance by Seller of any of the provisions hereof shall in no way be construed to be a waiver of such provisions, nor in any way to affect the validity of the Agreement or any part thereof, or the right of OWLET thereafter to enforce each and every such provision.
All goods purchased or services rendered hereunder shall be subject to acceptance. No acceptance made prior to final acceptance shall relieve Seller from responsibility for defects or other failure to meet the requirements of this Agreement. In case any item is defective in material or workmanship, or otherwise not in conformity with the requirements of this Agreement, OWLET shall have the right either to reject it without correction, require its correction, or accept it with an adjustment in price. Any item which has been rejected or required to be corrected shall be replaced or corrected by and at the expense of Seller promptly after notice. If, after being requested by OWLET, Seller fails to promptly replace or correct any defective item within the delivery schedule, OWLET may (i) by contract or otherwise, replace or correct such item and charge to Seller the costs occasioned thereby; (ii) without further notice, terminate any order for default; and (iii) require an appropriate reduction in price.

The foregoing warranties shall constitute conditions and are in addition to all other warranties, whether expressed or implied, and shall survive any delivery, inspection, acceptance, or payment by OWLET. If any materials delivered or services rendered hereunder do not meet the warranties specified herein or otherwise applicable, OWLET may, at its option, (i) require Seller to correct at no cost to OWLET any defective or non-conforming supplies or services rendered by repair or replacement, or (ii) return such defective or non-conforming goods at Seller's expanse to Seller and recover from Seller the order price thereof, or (iii) correct the defective or nonconforming materials or services rendered itself and charge Seller with the cost of such correction. The foregoing remedies are in addition to all other available remedies at law, in equity or under this Agreement and shall not be deemed to be inclusive. All warranties shall run to OWLET's and to its customers. OWLET's acceptance of Seller's goods, services, materials or designs shall not relieve Seller of the warranties set forth in this clause, nor shall waiver by OWLET of any specification requirement for one or more of the items constitute a waiver of such requirements for the remaining items to be delivered hereunder unless so stated by OWLET in writing.
