(a) The department shall, on request of a distributor or dealer, exchange new stamps for stamps mutilated while being affixed to a package of cigarettes. The provisions of the preceding sentence to the contrary notwithstanding, the commissioner may, in his discretion, refuse to exchange new stamps for mutilated stamps until he has examined the stamping records of the distributor or dealer. The distributor or dealer shall choose either:

(2) to have the new stamps shipped to the distributor or dealer.

(b) If a distributor or dealer chooses to have the new stamps shipped to the distributor or dealer, the department shall ship the new stamps subject to the following conditions:

(1) the distributor or dealer shall choose the shipper;

(2) all costs of shipping the new stamps shall be borne and prepaid by the distributor or dealer;

(3) the risk that the new stamps may not be received by the distributor shall be borne solely and exclusively by the distributor or dealer;

(4) in the event that the new stamps are not received by the distributor or dealer, any demand or claim against the state by the distributor or dealer for refund or credit of the amount allowed for the mutilated stamps is waived and released; and

(5) the distributor or dealer signs a document, acceptable to the department, releasing and waiving any demand or claim against the state by the distributor or dealer for refund or credit of the amount allowed for the mutilated stamps in the event that the new stamps are not received by the distributor or dealer.
