Client Service Portal
SC Labs uses a client service portal located at client.sclabs.com for use with its clients (“Clients”). All uses of the client service portal shall comply with these Terms and Conditions, including the following:
Sample Taking Procedures
Sample taking procedures are made available to protect the integrity of the sample and to assure accurate test results. Test results are specific to the samples provided and tested. The accuracy and reliability of the results is strictly dependent on how well procedures for providing samples are followed. SC Labs will discontinue and sever all business relations with providers without refund if sample fraud is determined.
Disclaimer of Warranties Regarding Publication
SC Labs hereby makes no warranties or representations (whether express or implied) in connection with the publication of test results, including, without limitation, that the Website will run uninterrupted or error free, that Client may obtain certain financial results from the publication of the test results on the Website, any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or any other warranties.
Client represents, warrants, and covenants that it will not, nor does it intend to, use SC Labs’ services to (a) violate or infringe the rights of others in any way; (b) commit a harm or other tort, whether intentional or otherwise; or (c) commit a crime. If Client is engaged in the cannabis industry, Client further represents, warrants, and covenants that it holds a valid and current license from the State of California or the State of Oregon to engage in the cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, retail, or combination thereof of cannabis. If at any time Client no longer holds a current license for its regulated cannabis industry, Client shall immediately, and in no event later than five (5) days after losing such license, notify SC Labs in writing. Client’s holding a valid license is a necessary condition to these Terms and Conditions and, therefore, any loss of such licensure shall immediately terminate any obligations of SC Labs hereunder.
SC Labs shall have no responsibility or liability to the Client for any failure or delay in performance by SC Labs which results in whole or in part from any cause or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of SC Labs. Such causes and circumstances shall include, but not limited to, acts of God; acts of orders of any government authority; strikes or other labor disputes; natural disasters; accidents; wars; civil disturbances; difficulties or delays in transportation, mail, or delivery services; inability to obtain sufficient services or supplies from SC Labs’ usual suppliers; or any other cause beyond SC Labs’ reasonable control.
Limitations of Liability
SC Labs shall have no liability, obligation, or responsibility of any kind for losses, costs, expenses, or other damages (including but not limited to any special, direct, incidental, or consequential damages) with respect to the services provided under these Terms and Conditions, any test results, or the publication of any test results on a third-party website.
All results provided by SC Labs are strictly for the use of Client. SC Labs is not in any way responsible for the use of such results by any third parties. All results should be considered in their entirety, and SC Labs is not responsible for the separation, detachment, or other use of any portion of these results.
Client agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless SC Labs, its officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any claims, actions, or demands (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) alleging or resulting from Client’s breach of any of the terms, warranties, representations, or covenants contained in these Terms and Conditions.
SC Labs makes every effort to accommodate a Client’s requested date and time for a sampling event or R&D pickup. We understand that Clients may need to cancel for various reasons, but due to the financial impact cancellations can have on our business, SC Labs requires 24-hour notice. If a sampling event or R&D pickup is cancelled within 24 hours, Client must pay a cancellation fee prior to, or at the time of, the Client’s next sampling event or R&D pickup.
Miscellaneous Terms and Conditions
SC Labs and Client may have other Agreements in place. In the event that there exists a conflict between any term, condition, or provision contained within these Terms and Conditions and any term, condition, or provision contained within a Master Testing Agreement, the Master Testing Agreement shall control. In the event that there exists a conflict between any term, condition, or provision contained within these Terms and Conditions and any term, condition, or provision contained within any other agreement, these Terms and Conditions shall control. SC Labs specifically rejects all additional, inconsistent, or conflicting terms, whether printed or otherwise set forth in any purchase order or other communication from the Client to SC Labs. No waiver by SC Labs of any provision, term, or condition hereof or of any breach by or obligation of the Client hereunder shall constitute a waiver of such provision, term, or condition on any other occasion or a waiver of any other breach by or obligation of the Client. Should suit be brought to enforce or interpret any part of these Terms and Conditions, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
