Subject to the paragraph below, we usually store the download link for 6 months following the purchase date, but do not guarantee to store them for any particular length of time. You agree that we may cancel or modify our digital storage program at any time.

9. RETURNS:

The Buyer may return Maptitude licenses sold and fulfilled by Caliper Corporation within 30 days of delivery for a full refund, subject to the following:

  1. Returns received by Caliper Corporation after 30 days from the date of purchase will not be refunded. Caliper Corporation does not charge restocking or other fees.
  2. For physical products, Caliper Corporation does not pay the return shipping costs unless the return is a result of our error. Items should be returned in their original product packaging.
  3. For software downloads, Caliper Corporation requires that the software be uninstalled and deactivated. Once the software has been deactivated, please contact Sales to request a refund.
  4. For subscriptions, all subscription and auto-renewal fees are non-refundable. 

Receiving Refunds:

Caliper Corporation will initiate a credit to the Buyer typically within three (3) business days, excluding US federal holidays, of receiving a return. The Buyer’s request for a refund is initiated upon receipt of a return by Caliper Corporation and upon confirmation by Caliper Corporation of software license deactivation. This 3-day period does not include delays caused by banks, as each bank’s turn-around time is different. All refunds are subject to the Caliper Corporation Sales Policy.

10. OUT OF STOCK:

Very occasionally, an item is out of stock or backordered. This means we have run low or out of stock on this item and are unable to ship at the present time. You will not need to re-order the item. We will keep this item on your present order and when it arrives, will ship this to you. If we cannot ship within the time stated or within 30 days, we will seek the customer’s consent to the delayed shipment. When consent is not provided, we will issue a full refund for the unshipped merchandise.

11. ORDER PROCESSING:

A. Shipped Order Processing
Orders are processed between 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Eastern Time, USA, -5 GMT). Orders received after 4:00 p.m. may be processed on the next business day, excluding U.S. federal holidays. All prices are in US dollars. Caliper Corporation ships the order to the shipping address (as specified at checkout) according to the shipping method and time frame agreed upon when the order was placed. Once a purchase has been prepared for shipment, it may not be changed. Remember that delivery estimates are for time in transit only, and that they do not apply until the product leaves Caliper Corporation’s facilities. As the delivery of an order is beyond Caliper Corporation’s control once the order leaves Caliper Corporation’s facilities, Caliper Corporation cannot assume liability for late deliveries, regardless of the delivery method specified.

B. Download Order Processing
The install codes and instructions for downloading are emailed after the shipping confirmation email. Download orders are typically processed automatically, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week. If you ordered a download product and did not receive a download e-mail within 2 business hours, please check your Junk e-mail folder. Occasionally, download orders are processed only during Caliper USA business hours (Monday through Friday, 8am to 6pm Eastern US Time, excluding U.S. federal holidays). Such download orders received after 4pm are usually processed the same business day, but may be processed on the next business day.

C. Hours of operation:
If you would like product and pricing information, order status information, or other assistance with an order you already placed with Caliper Corporation, please contact sales@caliper.com, Monday – Friday, excluding U.S. federal holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Eastern time (USA).

12. DELIVERY:

Once your order has been placed, we are unable to change the shipping address. Title and risk of loss to all products will pass to you on delivery.

Undeliverable Packages:
Occasionally packages are returned to Caliper Corporation as undeliverable. When the carrier returns an undeliverable package to Caliper Corporation, please contact Caliper Corporation to make arrangements for reshipment.

Failed Delivery Attempts:
Most of Caliper Corporation’s carriers make three attempts to deliver a package. After three delivery attempts, the carrier will return the package to Caliper Corporation.

13. PRODUCT SUPPORT:

Technical Support is provided for the current version of the software to assist with installation and software performance issues. After 60 days, Caliper has no obligation to provide support services to Licensee with respect to the Product, and may redirect Licensee to paid training options. Support is often provided after 60 days for the current version of the Product, and does not construe a waiver of Caliper’s right thereafter to enforce such provisions. With the optional, annual, and discounted license upgrade, you receive an additional 60 days of Learning Support from the invoice date. Free Support resources are available and include webinars, videos, the learning portal, and the Product help system. After 60 days from the invoice date you agree that we may cancel or modify our Support policies at any time. You also agree that we may stop supporting one or more products at any time after the 60 days and for any reason, including, by way of example, at the end of the product support life cycle, after which you will no longer have access to software download links.
