A “complaint” consists of both product complaints and adverse events. A complaint alleges deficiencies related to the identity, quality, durability, reliability, safety, or performance of a device. In addition, a complaint is any indication of the failure of a device to meet customer or user expectations for quality or to meet performance specifications. This includes the possibility of not meeting a product labeling or packaging specification. An adverse event is an incident involving the use of a product in a medical application that is purported to have resulted in a serious injury or, any undesirable experience by the patient associated with the use of the device.
- 14.1 You may not transfer or assign any or all your rights or obligations under any Contract.

- 14.6 These terms and conditions and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the subject matter of any Contract.
