If the shipment or delivery of Products is delayed by or at the request of the Reseller, payment will remain due in full 30 days from the date of checking the “ACCEPT” button.

The Company reserves, at its option, the right to demand any other forms of security from Reseller prior to agreeing to the terms of payment. Limited Warranty-Disclaimer of Warranties. The warranty obligations of the Company for Products sold by the Company will be limited to the warranty provided only to the Reseller and its original customer. The sole remedy available to Reseller with respect to defects in the Products will be that the defective Product will be repaired or replaced at the Company’s sole discretion. THE COMPANY MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THE PRODUCTS, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. If Products are resold by Reseller, Reseller will include in its agreement for resale provisions that limit recoveries in accordance with the terms and conditions of sale. In the event of Reseller’s failure to include in any agreement for resale the terms providing for warranty limitations, Reseller will indemnify and hold the Company harmless against any liability, loss, cost, damage, or expense (including attorney fees) arising out of or resulting from such failure. IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR FOR EXPENSE OCCASIONED BY THE USE OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS. RESELLER ASSUMES FULL RESPONSIBILITY THAT THE PRODUCTS PURCHASED UNDER THE AGREEMENT MEET THE SPECIFICATIONS AND/OR INTENDED USE OF RESELLER, AND THE COMPANY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO THEM. Delivery. Any delivery dates or other schedule of performance by the Company are approximations, and the sole obligation of the Company with respect to the schedule of delivery or performance will be to use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver the Products, or otherwise to perform, consistent with the reasonable demands of its business. In any event, the Company will have no liability to Reseller or any other person for delays in performance due to strikes or labor disputes of any type; accidents, fire, floods, acts of God, or actions by governmental authorities; acts, omissions, or delays of Reseller or any other third party; shortages of labor; or without limitation of the above, for any causes reasonably beyond the control of the Company. Title and Risk of Loss. Title to and risk of loss or damage to the Product will pass to Reseller on delivery by the Company free on board (“FOB”) to (a) the Company’s facility, (b) the Company’s supplier’s facility when Products are shipped directly from the manufacturer, or (c) as otherwise specifically indicated in the terms and conditions of sale. Inspection and Acceptance. Reseller will have three (3) days from the date of delivery to inspect the Products for defects and nonconformance and to notify the Company, in writing, of any defects, nonconformance, or rejection of the Products (other than defects or nonconformities due to damage, shortage, or errors in shipping that will be reported as set forth below). Claims for shipping damage, errors, or shortages must be made in writing to the Company no more than seven (7) days after receipt of the shipment. After this period, Reseller will be deemed to have irrevocably accepted the Products, if not previously accepted. After acceptance, Reseller will have no right to reject the Products for any reason or revoke acceptance. Claims for damage due to shipping must be made by Reseller to the freight carrier. Return of Products. All returns will be pursuant to the Company’s instructions. Reseller must contact the Company for prior written return authorization before returning any Products. All returns must reference the written approval of the Company along with the original Order Acknowledgement reference and the reason for the return. Non-warranty returns of normal stock products that are unused and are in resalable condition will be subject to the Company’s return policies, if any, in effect at the time, including applicable restocking and transportation charges and other conditions of return. If Reseller returns Products without receiving prior written authorization from the Company or without following the Company’s return policies, Reseller shall not be entitled to payment reimbursement for any such returned Products. Cancellation or Termination. In the event of default under the terms and conditions of sale by the Reseller that is not cured within 30 days after notice by the Company, Reseller will pay to the Company on demand all direct and indirect costs (including, without limitation, all applicable restocking or cancellation charges, including reimbursement for direct costs assessed by any third parties) incurred directly or indirectly by the Company in connection with the terms and conditions of sale, all as reasonably determined by the Company. Changes. The Company reserves the right from time to time to correct any typographical or clerical errors, including errors in mathematical computation, which may exist in the terms and conditions of sale. Technical Support. Unless otherwise specifically provided on the Order Acknowledgement, the terms and conditions of sale do not include any services of the Company in connection with installation, testing, or evaluation of the Products. The Company may, however, consistent with its capabilities and subject to scheduling acceptable to the Company, make available to Reseller, at Reseller’s expense, technical support services relating to the Products at the rates then imposed by the Company, together with any out-of-pocket expenses to the Company in connection with the technical support. The sole remedy of Reseller in connection with any acts or omissions of the Company in the provision of technical support will be the provision of further technical support to Reseller reasonably required to correct the act or omission. Modifications and Waiver-Entire Agreement. Neither party has rights, warranties, nor conditions expressed or implied, statutory or otherwise, other than those contained in the terms and conditions of sale or other agreements entered into between the Company and Reseller. No waiver of any provision of the terms and conditions of sale will be binding unless in writing signed by an authorized representative of the party against whom the waiver is asserted, and unless expressly made generally applicable, will apply only to the specific case for which the waiver is given. Failure of either party to insist on strict performance of the terms and conditions of sale will not be construed as a waiver of any term or condition of the terms and conditions of sale. Any document or electronic submission submitted by Reseller to the Company confirming its intention to purchase Products will be deemed to constitute a confirmation and acceptance of the terms and conditions of sale, even if the document states terms in addition to or different from those in the standard terms and conditions of sale. All agreements between the Company and Reseller will be solely under the terms and conditions of sale and except for terms and conditions of the Company in an approved Reseller Agreement and other Company approved agreements, the Company rejects any and all additional or different terms contained in any document submitted to the Company by Reseller. Any execution by the Company of any other document submitted by Reseller in connection with the purchase of Products does not constitute acceptance of or an agreement to any terms and conditions in addition to or different from those contained in the terms and conditions of sale, but will constitute only acknowledgment of receipt of the document. In addition, notwithstanding any terms contained in any documents submitted by Reseller in connection with the purchase of Products, the acceptance of delivery by Reseller of Products described in the terms and conditions will constitute a course of conduct constituting Reseller’s agreement to the terms and conditions of sale, to the exclusion of any additional or different terms and conditions. Compliance with Laws. Reseller will be responsible for compliance with any and all federal, state, or local laws or regulations respecting safety or respecting use of the Products and shall indemnify and hold the Company harmless from and against any and all claims of violations of laws or regulations or other claims of personal injury or property damage directly or indirectly related to the installation, maintenance, use or operation of the Products. Export Control. Products supplied by the Company may be subject to various export laws and regulations. It is the responsibility of the exporter to comply with all laws and regulations. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, if federal, state, or local law requires export authorization for the export or re-export of any Product or associated technology, no delivery can be made until export authorization is obtained, regardless of any otherwise promised delivery date. If any required export authorization is denied, the Company and Company’s supplier will be relieved of any further obligation relative to the sale and delivery of the Products subject to denial without liability of any kind relative to Reseller or any other party. The Company will not comply with boycott-related requests except to the extent permitted by federal law and then only at the Company’s discretion. Trademarks and Service Marks.

In furtherance of this Indemnification, Reseller shall maintain in full force and effect, a comprehensive general liability insurance policy insuring the Company in the amount of $1,000,000 per occurrence. Neither Party shall be liable for any loss or damages suffered by the other Party arising from the delay or failure to perform its obligations to the extent that such delay or failure results from an event or events beyond the reasonable control of a Party, including but not limited to, acts of government, embargoes, fire, flood, explosions, acts of God, acts of a public enemy, strikes, labor disputes, vandalism, civil rights or commotions, or the inability to obtain necessary raw materials, supplies and equipment. Neither Party shall be responsible for any indirect damage, incidental damage or loss of profits of the other Party. Term and Termination.
