Sales Terms and Conditions

 

GAUMARD SALES TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

These Gaumard Scientific Company, Inc. (“Gaumard”) Sales Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) apply to the sale or use of Gaumard equipment (“Equipment”), Software (“Software” as defined in paragraph 13), and supplies (“Supplies”), collectively referred to as “Product” or “Products” between Gaumard and the entity named on the applicable Gaumard Purchase Order (“Customer”) (collectively, “Party” or “Parties”).  The Parties, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows.

 

  • Agreement.  Customer agrees to purchase from Gaumard the Products set forth in quotes and purchase orders accepted by both Customer and Gaumard. These Terms, along with any Exhibits, any applicable Gaumard Purchase Order documents, Gaumard Warranty documents, Gaumard Cares Service Plan documents, and any other purchasing or service documents executed by the Parties constitute the complete and entire agreement between Gaumard and Customer (collectively referred to herein as the “Agreement”).  This Agreement will supersede all other quotations, agreements, understandings, warranties, and representations (whether written or oral) between the Parties with respect to the subject matter set forth in the Agreement.  Any Customer documentation (including Customer’s purchase order terms and conditions) that conflicts with or attempts to modify the Agreement in any way is hereby rejected and of no effect unless specifically agreed to in writing and signed by the Parties.  No provision of this Agreement shall be waived, amended, modified, superseded, canceled, terminated, renewed, or extended except in a written document signed by both Parties or signed by the Party against whom the modification is sought to be enforced. This agreement can be terminated by Gaumard without cause by giving thirty (30) days prior written notice to Customer.

 

  • Prices.  Prices, fees, and charges for Products and services (including maintenance, installation, and training as described in the applicable Gaumard Purchase Order documents, Gaumard Warranty documents, Gaumard Cares Service Plan documents) (“Service” or “Services”) are payable in United States (U.S.) Dollars only, and do not include any applicable taxes or shipping charges.  If Customer claims any tax exemption, it must furnish a valid tax exemption certificate before shipment of Products. Unless such certificate is furnished, Customer agrees to pay at its sole expense all applicable taxes, assessments, fees, penalties, import duties, and merchandise processing fees that may be levied or assessed upon Customer or Gaumard with respect to this Agreement, the Products, or any interest thereon.  Gaumard reserves the right to increase prices on thirty (30) days written notice to Customer.

 

  • Payment.  Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Gaumard, Customer shall pay invoices net twenty (20) days from the invoice date.  A late charge will be due on any unpaid balance at a rate of 1.0% per month or the maximum rate otherwise permitted by law, whichever is lower.  Gaumard may charge interest at the maximum rate permitted by law on all amounts not paid by the invoice due date.  Gaumard retains a purchase money security interest in all Products sold to Customer to secure payment of the total purchase price thereof. Customer hereby grants Gaumard the right to file a copy of this Agreement with any appropriate authorities to evidence this security interest. Customer agrees to execute and deliver such other documents as Gaumard may request in connection therewith.  Gaumard shall not be obligated to deliver any Product or perform any Service during any period when Customer payment is past due.  Customer will be responsible for all costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Gaumard to collect overdue payments and/or to take possession or otherwise dispose of Products for which payment is overdue.

 

  • Product Shipment and Risk of Loss.  Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Gaumard All Products will be shipped F.O.B. Origin, regardless of any provisions for payments of freight, insurance, the form of shipping documents, or selection of carrier by Gaumard.  F.O.B. Origin means title to the Products passes to the Customer at the shipping dock of Gaumard or Gaumard’s supplier or authorized agent.  Customer is responsible for shipping charges and for the cost of insurance paid to cover any losses from Gaumard’s shipment point to Customer’s receipt. Gaumard will assist Customer in processing any loss claims. Gaumard shall use reasonable efforts to meet the specified delivery dates.  If Gaumard fails to make delivery within a reasonable time for reasons other than Customer’s fault or circumstances beyond Gaumard’s reasonable control, then Customer’s only remedy is the right to terminate the applicable Purchase Order, whereupon Gaumard will refund any prepayments received from Customer relating to such Purchase Order.

  

  • Installation and Acceptance.  Product orders are subject to 1) written acceptance by Gaumard, 2) receipt of specified deposits, as applicable and 3) continuing credit approval.  If applicable, Gaumard will install Equipment at an agreed upon location ("Installation").  Installation shall be complete upon Gaumard's demonstration that the Equipment meets Gaumard's then-current operating specifications ("Installation").  Installation is subject to Customer cooperating in preparing and maintaining the site in compliance with Gaumard specifications, including but not limited to, applicable electrical and other connection regulations and all environmental conditions.  If Customer fails to accept shipment of Products other than for breach of warranty, Customer shall immediately pay the full purchase price as if shipment and Installation had occurred. If Customer fails to accept Products and if Gaumard decides to store ordered Products, Customer shall be responsible for Gaumard's reasonable insurance, handling, and storage charges.  If Gaumard elects not to store ordered Products, Gaumard may arrange shipment and storage in a bonded warehouse at Customer's sole risk and expense.

 

  • Delay of Performance.  The Parties’ obligations under this Agreement are subject to force majeure, including but not limited to, civil insurrection, terrorism, fire, flood, labor disputes, shortages, delays of suppliers or contractors, or government priority systems, actions taken or threatened by any governmental agencies, acts of God or other contingencies or acts not within the sole control of the Parties.  Gaumard reserves the right during any shortage period to (a) make Supplies available to Customer (as it sees fit) without any liability to Customer, and (b) to make substitutions and modifications in the specification of any Products, provided such substitutions or modifications do not materially affect the performance of Products.

 

  • WARRANTIES.  Gaumard warrants that if a Product proves to be defective in material or workmanship within one year from the date on which title to the Product passes to the Customer (“Warranty Period”), Gaumard will, at Gaumard's option, repair or replace the Gaumard product.  This limited warranty covers all defects in material and workmanship in the Gaumard product, except: (a) Damage resulting from accident, misuse, abuse, neglect, or unintended use of the Gaumard product; (b) Damage resulting from failure to properly maintain the Gaumard product in accordance with Gaumard product instructions, including failure to properly clean the Gaumard product; and (c) Damage resulting from a repair or attempted repair of the Gaumard product by anyone other than Gaumard or a Gaumard representative.  Replacement parts are warranted for the remainder of the Warranty Period or ninety (90) days from shipment, whichever is longer.  Services are warranted to be supplied in a workman-like manner.  Gaumard does not warrant that use of the Products will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that the Products will operate with non-Gaumard authorized third-party products.  THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE IN LIEU OF AND EXCLUDE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED BY OPERATION OF LAW OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.  SUCH LIMITED WARRANTY IS GIVEN SOLELY TO THE ORIGINAL CUSTOMER AND IS NOT GIVEN TO ANY THIRD PARTY INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, SUBSEQUENT PURCHASERS OR USERS OF THE PRODUCTS OR CUSTOMERS OF THE CUSTOMER.  THIS WARRANTY IS VOID UPON TRANSFER OF PRODUCT BY CUSTOMER TO ANY OTHER ENTITY.  SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER.  These warranties do not apply to any Products that are supplied on a pre-release or “as-is” basis.

 

  • Warranty Claims and Remedies.  In the event of any warranty claim, Gaumard will replace with new or repaired items any Product part or component that is in breach of the above limited warranties. Alternatively, Gaumard may elect to repay or credit to Customer an amount equal to the purchase price of the defective Product.  Items replaced shall become Gaumard property.  All claims shall be initiated by contacting Gaumard within the applicable Warranty Period and within thirty (30) days after discovery of the non-conformity.  If Customer has failed to notify Gaumard within the Warranty Period, then Customer shall be barred from instituting any action thereafter.  Customer shall not return the Product to Gaumard without prior authorization from Gaumard.  If the necessary repairs to the Product are covered by this limited warranty, then Customer will pay only the incidental expenses associated with the repair, including any shipping, handling, and related costs for sending the product to Gaumard and for sending the product back to the first purchaser. However, if the repairs are not covered by this limited warranty, then Customer will be liable for all repair costs in addition to costs of shipping and handling.  Upon request, Gaumard must be given access to and an opportunity to inspect the Product and any working areas and storage areas.  These remedies shall comprise Gaumard’s entire liability and Customer’s exclusive remedy for breach of warranty and are in lieu of any other remedies at law or equity.

 

  • LIMIT OF LIABILITY.  GAUMARD SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES, DAMAGES, OR EXPENSES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS, DATA, OR USE), DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING FROM THE SALE, HANDLING, SERVICE, OR USE OF PRODUCT OR SERVICES ORDERED OR FURNISHED, OR FROM ANY CAUSE RELATING THERETO.  EXCEPT FOR PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH TO THE EXTENT RESULTING FROM GAUMARD’S NEGLIGENT OR INTENTIONALLY WRONGFUL ACTS OR OMISSIONS, IN NO EVENT SHALL GAUMARD BE LIABLE UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY OR FOR ANY CAUSE RELATED TO A PRODUCT OR SERVICE, WHETHER BASED UPON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHER THEORY, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF, FOR ANY AMOUNT IN EXCESS OF THE PRICE, FEE, OR CHARGE RECEIVED BY GAUMARD FOR SUCH PRODUCT OR SERVICE.

 

  • Governmental Authorizations.  Customer is responsible for compliance and costs associated with all required licenses, permits, or other governmental authorizations, including but not limited to, any license or certification needed for Customer to use the Product, and any export or import license, exchange permit, or the like (“Licenses”), even if applied for by Gaumard on Customer’s behalf.  If any authorization is delayed, denied, revoked, restricted, or not renewed, Gaumard shall not be liable, and Customer is not relieved of its obligations.  Customer represents and agrees that it will handle all Product and technical data related to the Licenses so that it conforms to all applicable U.S. laws and regulations, including U.S. export licensing laws and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  Customer shall not trans-ship, divert, re-export or otherwise dispose of any U.S. origin goods or technology obtained from Gaumard except as U.S. laws and regulations expressly permit.
