7.9   The Vendor will promptly notify SCommerce of any recalls or potential recalls, or safety alerts of any of its Products and cooperate and assist SCommerce in connection with any recalls or safety alerts, including by initiating the procedures for returning items to the Vendor under SCommerce’s standard processes. The Vendor will be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred in connection with any recall or potential recall or safety alerts of any of the Vendor’s Products (including paying the applicable fees for the return of the Product to Vendor and/or disposal of the Product, as set out in the Rate Card). For the avoidance of doubt, (i) the returns and/or disposals under Clauses 7.8 and 7.9 do not fall within the scope of the other procedures within Clauses 6 to 7, and (ii) SCommerce shall not be required to reimburse Vendor the Replacement Value (or any other amount) in respect of any Products returned and/or disposed under Clause 7.8 and 7.9.
