Any additional or different terms in Buyer’s forms or other documents are hereby deemed to be material alterations and notice of objection to them and rejection of them is hereby given. This is the final and complete expression of all terms and conditions of the agreement. Any representations, promises, warranties, or statements, including oral statements not reduced to writing, that are not contained herein are void.
THE GOODS SOLD ARE SOLD “AS IS WITH ALL FAULTS” AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES AS TO THE PRODUCTS SOLD HEREUNDER. NO OTHER WARRANTIES , EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, SHALL APPLY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR THAT SOLD GOODS WILL CONFORM WITH THE PREVIOUSLY PROVIDED SAMPLES. To the extent that the manufacturer of the product provides a warranty and such warranty is transferable, Seller will transfer such manufacturer’s warranty to Buyer without incurring any liability thereunder.

In the event of a delinquency, Seller may, without notice and in its sole discretion, hold or cancel orders, refuse to accept new orders, and accelerate all amounts due. Further, if Seller, in its sole discretion, finds it necessary to employ a collection agency or an attorney to collect any past due amounts owed hereunder, it may collect, in addition to any other sums owed hereunder, the reasonable collection fee and/or reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Buyer grants to Seller a lien and security interest in the goods to secure payment of the purchase price, and agrees to execute any additional documents (including without limitation financing statements) deemed necessary or convenient by Seller to perfect Seller’s security interest in the goods.
Purchasing Goods on Credit
Any credit terms offered by Seller are available only for as long as Buyer complies with all its obligations under these terms and conditions, including without limitation, the provisions requiring timely payment of invoices within the stated terms. If credit terms are no longer available, Buyer shall pay cash in advance for all purchases. If Seller shall have any doubt at any time as to Buyer’s financial responsibility, Seller, in its sole discretion, either may (1) decline to make further shipments except under receipt of cash in advance or upon giving of other security satisfactory to Seller; or (2) terminate this sale. Nothing in this paragraph is intended to affect the Buyer’s obligation to accept and pay for the goods.
Buyer shall not be entitled to deduct from the price of Seller’s invoices the amount of any claim asserted by Buyer against Seller, unless such claim has been allowed by Seller, in writing, and Seller agreed in writing that Buyer could make any such deduction. Further, Buyer shall not off-set any amounts due and owing to it from Seller without Seller’s prior written permission. On the other hand, Seller may, in its sole discretion, off-set any amounts due and payable to Buyer with any amounts due and payable from Buyer to Seller.

In the event of cancellation, Buyer shall send Seller written notice, as set forth in the Notification Section below, of proposed cancellation; however, the order shall not be deemed cancelled until Buyer receives from Seller a signed acceptance of the proposed cancellation. In the event Buyer cancels an order and Seller accepts such cancellation, Buyer is fully responsible to Seller for any and all expenses it incurs as a result of Buyer’s cancellation, including without limitation demurrage charges, freight charges, storage charges and possibly a re-stocking fee. Seller may unilaterally cancel any order if it becomes aware of adverse credit information regarding Buyer or as otherwise stated herein.
Limitation of Remedy & Liability
