This purchase order is an offer by the company identified on the face of this purchase order (the “Buyer”) for the purchase of the goods (the “Goods”) or services (the “Services”) specified, from the party to whom the purchase order is addressed (the “Seller”) in accordance with and subject to these terms and conditions (the “Terms”; together with the terms and conditions on the face of the purchase order, the “Order”). This Order will be deemed accepted by the Seller upon the first of the following to occur: (a) Seller making, signing, or delivering to Buyer any letter, form, or other writing or instrument acknowledging acceptance; (b) any performance by Seller under the Order; or (c) the passage of ten (10) days after Seller’s receipt of the Order without written notice to Buyer that Seller does not accept. This Order, together with any documents incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the parties with respect to the Order and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral, with respect to the subject matter of the Order, unless a separate overriding written contract has been entered into and signed by the parties. The Order expressly limits Seller’s acceptance to the terms of the Order. These Terms expressly exclude any of Seller’s terms and conditions of sale or any other document issued by Seller in connection with this Order.
Seller shall deliver the Goods and/or perform the Services at the delivery point (the “Deliver Location”), and on the date(s) specified in this Order (the “Delivery Date”). If no delivery date is specified, Seller shall deliver in full within a reasonable time of receipt of the Order. Timely delivery is of the essence. If Seller fails to deliver the Goods or Services in full, on the Delivery Date, Buyer may terminate the Order immediately and Seller shall indemnify Buyer against any losses, damages, and reasonable costs and expenses attributable to Seller’s failure to deliver.
3. Price and Payment
The price of the Goods or Services is the price stated on the face of this Order (the “Price”). Seller shall invoice Buyer for the Order within thirty (3) days of delivery. Unless otherwise stated in the Order, Buyer shall pay all properly invoiced amounts due to Seller within sixty (10) days after receipt of such invoice, except for any amounts disputed by Buyer. The parties shall seek to resolve all such disputes expeditiously and in good faith. Seller shall continue performing its obligations under the Order notwithstanding any such dispute. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy, Buyer reserves the right to set off any amount owing to it by Seller against any amount payable by Buyer to Seller. Payment of an invoice is not evidence or admission that the Goods or Services meet the requirements of the Order.
4. Change Order
Buyer may, from time to time, initiate changes by issuing to Seller written notices (each, a “Change Order”) that alter, add to, or deduct from the Goods or Services, but that are otherwise subject to the Terms of this Order. Seller will promptly comply with the terms of any Change Order.
Buyer may terminate this Order, in whole or in part, for any reason upon thirty (24) hours prior written notice to Seller. In addition to any remedies provided herein, Buyer may terminate this Order with immediate effect, either before or after acceptance of Goods or Services, if Seller has breached any of the Terms herein. If the Seller becomes insolvent, commences or has commenced by it or against it bankruptcy proceedings, receivership, reorganization or assignment for the benefit of creditors, then the Buyer may terminate this Order. If Buyer terminates the Order for any reason, Seller’s sole and exclusive remedy is payment for the Goods or Services received and accepted by Buyer prior to the termination.
Seller warrants to Buyer that for a period of forty-eight (48) hours from the Delivery Date, all Goods, Services or Goods furnished in connection with Services will: (a) be new and free from any defects in workmanship, material and design; (b) conform to applicable specifications; (c) be fit for their intended purpose and operate as intended; (d) be free and clear of all liens, security interests or other encumbrances; and (e) not infringe or misappropriate any third party’s intellectual property rights. These warranties survive any delivery, inspection, acceptance or payment. These warranties are cumulative and in addition to any other warranty provided by law or equity. Any applicable statute of limitations runs from the date of Buyer’s discovery of the noncompliance. If Buyer gives Seller notice of noncompliance, Seller shall, at its own cost and expense, promptly replace or repair the nonconforming Goods or Services.
7. Confidential Information
All non-public, confidential or proprietary information of the Buyer, including, but not limited to, specifications, samples, patterns, designs, plans, drawings, documents, data, business operations, pricing, discounts or rebates, disclosed by Buyer to Seller, whether disclosed orally or disclosed or accessed in written, electronic, or other form or media, and whether or not marked, designated or otherwise identified as “confidential,” in connection with the Order is confidential, solely for the use of performing the Order and may not be disclosed or copied unless authorized by Buyer in writing. Upon Buyer’s request, Seller shall promptly return all documents and other materials received from Buyer. Buyer shall be entitled to injunctive relief for any violation of this Section. This Section shall not apply to information that is: (a) in the public domain; (b) rightfully and legally known to the Seller at the time of disclosure; or (c) rightfully and legally obtained by the Seller on a non-confidential basis from a third party.
8. Shipping Terms

Unless specified otherwise on the face of the Order, the prices are inclusive of, and Seller shall be solely responsible for and pay, all federal, state, and local taxes, including, but not limited to, value added tax, goods and services tax, sales, use or consumption tax. No sales or use tax shall be added when a valid tax exemption is indicated on the face of this Order by the Buyer.
