The foregoing warranties shall be limited to a one (1) year period commencing on the date of shipment of the applicable Product(s) or following notice to the Customer that the Product(s) is/are ready for shipment (the “Warranty Period”) provided (i) the Products have been properly cared for and used in accordance with ICM’s instructions, if any, and (ii) Customer promptly notifies ICM in writing of any warranty claim during the Warranty Period. The warranties provided by ICM in this Section 10(a) are the only warranties provided by ICM with respect to the Product(s) sold hereunder, and may be modified or amended only by a written instrument signed by ICM.
