Terms and Conditions of Sale
- Parties. Daytronic Corporation will be referred to as "Seller" and the person or company purchasing as indicated on the front hereof will be referred to as "Buyer."
- Buyer’s Assent to Terms and Conditions. (a) Seller hereby objects to and rejects any and all different or additional terms or conditions contained in any order submitted to Seller by or on behalf of Buyer unless specifically agreed to in a writing signed by an officer of Seller. Under no other circumstances are any such different or additional terms to be considered a part of this Agreement. (b) No representative or agent of Seller has any authority to make any different or additional representations or warranties on behalf of Seller. (c) Until Seller issues a new quotation, the terms and conditions hereof shall govern all sales of goods of the type described on the face hereof by Seller to Buyer regardless of whether the price of such goods changes or Buyer orders such goods in excess of the quantity specified in this Agreement.
- Price Adjustments. The prices stated herein do not include any sales, use, or other taxes unless so stated specifically. Such taxes will be added to invoice prices in those instances in which Seller is required to collect them from Buyer; provided, however, that if Seller does not collect any such taxes and is later asked by or required to pay such to any taxing authority, Buyer will make such payment to Seller or, if requested by Seller, directly to such taxing authority. At Seller's option, prices may be adjusted to reflect any increase in the costs of Seller resulting from state, federal, or local legislation, or any change in the rate charge or classification of any carrier.
Payment: Title and Risk: Shipment.* Unless otherwise specified by Seller, all prices are F.O.B. Seller's factory or warehouse from which shipment is made. Terms of sale are Net 30 Days for accounts having established credit. Other shipments are made C.O.D., subject to Seller's Credit Department approval. Regardless of the manner of shipment, title to any products described on the front hereof and risk of loss or damage thereto shall pass to Buyer upon tender to the carrier at the factory or warehouse of Seller, except in those instances in which delivery is made by Seller's vehicles. No deferment of shipment at Buyer's request beyond the respective dates indicated will be made except on terms that will indemnify Seller against all loss and additional expense, including, but not limited to demurrage, handling, storage, and insurance charges.
The price is payable net thirty (30) days. Interest shall be paid on demand on past due amounts at the rate of two percent (2%) per month or the highest lawful rate, whichever is less.
Buyer hereby submits to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts for the State of Ohio, county of Montgomery, and said courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction and venue to adjudicate the rights and obligations of the parties relating in any manner to this Agreement. Buyer hereby designates the Secretary of State of Ohio as an authorized agent to accept service or process for Buyer in the State of Ohio.
* ALL credit terms are subject to Seller’s Credit Department approval.
Warranty and Limitations of Liability. Seller warrants its products to be free from defects in material and workmanship, under normal and proper use in accordance with instructions of Seller, for a period of one year from the date of delivery to Buyer. Seller's liability under such warranty or in connection with any other claim relating to the products shall be limited to, at Seller's option, the repair or replacement of any products or parts or components thereof which are returned to Seller freight prepaid and which are defective in material or workmanship, or the refund of the purchase price to Buyer.
This warranty is not intended to cover consumer products, as defined in the Magnuson-Moss warranty—Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 2301-12, which are purchased by Buyer for purposes other than resale. If Buyer is not intending to resell the products, and if the products are consumer products as defined in the Magnuson-Moss Act, the foregoing warranty, but not the limitation of Seller's liability, shall be null and void.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED ABOVE, SELLER MAKES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE OR OTHERWISE ON THE PRODUCTS, OR ON ANY PARTS OR LABOR FURNISHED DURING THE SALE, DELIVERY, OR SERVICING OF THE PRODUCTS. IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE TO BUYER FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF, OR AS THE RESULT OF, THE SALE, DELIVERY, SERVICING, USE, OR LOSS OF USE OF THE PRODUCTS OR ANY PART THEREOF, OR FOR ANY CHARGES OR EXPENSES OF ANY NATURE INCURRED WITHOUT SELLER'S WRITTEN CONSENT, EVEN THOUGH SELLER HAS BEEN NEGLIGENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER'S LIABILITY UNDER ANY CLAIM MADE BY BUYER EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCTS IN RESPECT OF WHICH DAMAGES ARE CLAIMED.
