In the event the goods are so incorrectly used, The Company shall be exempt from all liability whatsoever and the purchaser hereby indemnifies The Company in respect of any claims, demands, suits or proceedings whatsoever resulting from such misuse of the goods. The Company warrants its products to be in conformance with its own plans and specifications and to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for the warranty term specified for each product.
