If a service technician delivers the replacement unit to Customer, Customer must relinquish the defective System or component thereof to the service technician. If Customer does not relinquish the defective unit to the service technician as required above, or if (in the event the replacement unit was not delivered in person by a service technician) the defective unit is not returned to World Lasers within ten (10) calendar days, Customer agrees to pay World Lasers for the replacement unit upon receipt of invoice.
