BUYER’S ASSENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED IN THIS DOCUMENT SHALL BE CONCLUSIVELY PRESUMED FROM BUYER’S ACCEPTANCE OF ALL OR ANY PART OF THE GOODS OR FROM PAYMENT BY BUYER FOR ALL OR ANY PART OF THE GOODS. NONE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS MAY BE ADDED TO, MODIFIED, SUPERCEDED OR OTHERWISE ALTERED, EXCEPT BY A WRITTEN INSTRUMENT SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED EXECUTIVE OF SELLER. FAILURE OF SELLER TO OBJECT TO ANY TERMS OR CONDITIONS WHICH MAY BE CONTAINED IN ANY DOCUMENT OR FORM OF BUYER SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED AS A WAIVER OF THESE CONDITIONS, NOR AS AN ACCEPTANCE OF ANY SUCH TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

  2. Shipment and Partial Shipment

    Delivery terms are F.O.B. Destination as specified in the Ship To location on Seller’s Invoice.  Buyer shall assume all risk of loss or damage upon delivery by Seller to the Ship To location. Scheduled dates of delivery are determined from the date of Seller’s acceptance of any order placed by Buyer and are estimates of approximate dates of delivery, not a guaranty of a particular date of delivery.  As products are ordered by Buyer and become available, Seller may make partial shipments and each shipment shall be invoiced separately.  Partial shipments shall not relieve Buyer from its obligation to accept shipment of the remainder of the order.

  3. Delay.

    If Buyer requests deferral of deliveries, Seller’s agreement to defer delivery shall not excuse Buyer from its obligation to pay for the goods at the same times and in the same quantities as the original delivery schedule, including interest due pursuant to these terms and conditions. In addition to adhering to the original payment schedule, Buyer shall pay such storage charges as Seller may assess for storing the goods awaiting delivery.

  4. Acceptance by Buyer.

    Products shall be deemed accepted by Buyer on the date they are received by Buyer unless, within fifteen (15) days after receipt, Buyer gives Seller written notice that the products are not accepted and specifies in detail the reasons therefor. Seller may then, at its sole discretion, proceed to make any necessary corrections, in which case such corrective action by Seller shall be Buyer’s sole remedy for non-acceptance of a product. Upon completion and acceptance of such corrections, the products shall be deemed accepted by Buyer. Under no circumstances shall Buyer be entitled to revoke Buyer’s acceptance of the product.

  5. Returns and Order Cancellations.

    No Goods shall be returned for credit without first obtaining written consent from an executive officer of Seller. Upon such consent, Seller shall cease work and hold for Buyer all completed Goods and materials that have been purchased by Seller and/or Seller’s suppliers for the purpose of fulfillment of Buyer’s order plus a cancellation charge as prescribed by Seller.  Upon consent for return, authorized returns require a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number.  RMA number and instructions for return will be provided upon Seller’s consent for return.  Each returned product is subject to a re-stocking fee of twenty percent (20%) of the purchase price.

  6. Security Interest.

    Shipments, deliveries and performance of work by Seller shall at all times be subject to the approval of and requirements of the credit department of Seller, including the requirement that Buyer pay part or all of the purchase price in advance.

  10. Warranty.
