Foreign materials are not permitted. Affected inputs may be rejected. Rejected ingots will adversely affect your performance rating.
Suppliers agree to indemnify and hold Logan Aluminum, its Associates (TAA and Novelis), and its tollers harmless from any claims, demands, cost and expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees), resulting from or arising under, in whole or in part, a breach of the foregoing warranty that their product is not contaminated with foreign materials whether caused or contributed to in whole or in part by the negligence of Logan Aluminum, its Associates (TAA and Novelis), or its tollers.

TAA/Logan will have the right to revoke the acceptance of the material at any time. All costs and liability associated with radioactive material will be the responsibility of the supplier.
