5.6.2 after receiving a Notice of Rejection pursuant to condition 5.2, the Company subsequently determines that the Customer does not have a valid claim under the terms of the Warranty Policy for any reason,

5.8 The terms of this agreement shall apply to any repaired or replacement Products supplied by the Company.
