All sales of goods and services by Phoenix Contact Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "the Seller"), are made subject to
the following terms and conditions.
1.
GENERAL - In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the terms and conditions of sale herein and
the terms and conditions contained in the Purchaser’s order or in any other form issued by the Purchaser, the
Seller’s terms and conditions shall prevail unless agreed upon in writing and signed by an authorized
representative of the Seller. This Agreement shall become effective and binding when either (a) it has been
accepted and executed by an authorized representative of the Seller, or (b) the equipment has been shipped
to the Purchaser, with or without acceptance in writing hereon. Notice of acceptance is hereby waived by the
Purchaser. The Purchaser hereby acknowledges receipt of a true and complete copy hereof. No additions to
or modifications of any of the Terms and Conditions of Sale as they appear herein shall be binding upon the
Seller unless signed in writing by a duty authorized representative of the Seller. Typographical and clerical
errors in quotations, orders and acknowledgements are subject to correction. This Agreement is not
assignable without the prior written consent of the Seller. Any attempt to assign any of the rights, duties or
obligations of this Agreement without such consent is void. If any provision or provisions of this Agreement
shall be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining
provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. The Seller is not responsible for failure to fulfill
its obligations under this Agreement due to causes beyond its control, or except as agreed herein
2.
PRICING - All prices are subject to change without notice however we will strive to provide 30 days notice. In
the event of a net price change, the price of equipment on order but unshipped will be the price in effect on the
date of order. Except that, if delivery is delayed upon instructions from the Purchaser, prices shall be those in
effect when instructions are received to proceed with the order. Any addition to an outstanding order will be
accepted at prices in effect when the addition is accepted. The Seller also reserves the right to adjust the
prices herein based on unusual exchange rate fluctuations at any time and without notice. Special Price quotes
are effective until the expiration date noted on the quotation and are subject to correction of error and can be
adjusted without notice. All Purchase Orders must be priced.
3.
TERMS OF PAYMENT – Payment shall become due as per the terms stipulated on the invoice. If, in the
Seller’s judgment, the Purchaser’s financial condition at any time does not justify the terms specified, the Seller
may re-evaluate and determine new terms of payment. If the Purchaser defaults in any payment when due, the
Seller at his option, without prejudice to other lawful remedies, may defer delivery or cancel this contract. The
Seller reserves the right to levy a late payment charge of 1 ½% per month over the prime lending rate for any
unpaid amount for each calendar month (or fraction thereof) that such payment is in default. In the event of
referral to an attorney for collections, reasonable attorney’s fees for collection of the overdue amount shall be
paid by the Purchaser.
4.
TAXES - Any applicable tax or other governmental charge shall be paid by the Purchaser in addition to the
prices quoted or invoiced. This shall include, but not be limited to, the Federal Goods and Services Tax,
Harmonized Sales Tax and/or Provincial Sales Tax. Note: The Purchaser is obligated to stipulate on the
purchase order whether the goods purchased are exempt from the applicable Provincial Sales Tax. If yes, a
Provincial Sales Tax exemption number must be provided at time of order.
5.
SHIPMENT/TRANSPORTATION - Unless otherwise stipulated, prices are FCA original shipping point, without
freight allowance. Delivery to the initial carrier shall constitute delivery to the Purchaser, and all goods are
shipped at the Purchaser’s risk. For all other shipment terms, please refer to shipping policy.
6.
SHORTAGES/DAMAGES -. In the event of loss or damage during shipment, Purchaser's claim shall be
against the carrier only. Seller will give Purchaser any reasonable assistance provided immediate notice of
such claim is given by Purchaser to Seller. Claims for shortages must be made in writing within ten (10) days
after receipt of goods by Purchaser. If Seller does not receive written notification of such shortages within such
ten (10) days, it shall be conclusively presumed that the goods were delivered in their entirety. Unless agreed
upon otherwise in writing, Seller reserves the right to make partial shipments and to submit invoices for partial
shipments. Replacement orders for short shipment claims will be reinvoiced and the original shipment will be
credited once the claim has been verified.

manufacturing facilities. In the event of any such delay, the date of delivery shall be extended for a period
equal to the time lost by reason of the delay. If shipping or progress of the work is delayed or interrupted for

expense arising from such cancellation or termination. Seller reserves the right to charge Purchaser with
reasonable costs based upon expenses already incurred and commitments made by Seller, including, without
limitation, any labour done, material purchased and also including supplier's usual overhead and reasonable
profit and cancellation charges from Seller’s suppliers.
11. RETURNS - Goods may not be returned for credit until and unless the Seller has given prior consent in writing

12. LIMITED WARRANTY - The Seller warrants to the Purchaser that the equipment purchased shall be free from
defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one year from shipment.

material or workmanship shall be given promptly by the Purchaser to the Seller. The Seller will not be liable for
any misuse, improper operations, improper installation, improper maintenance, alteration, modification,
accident or unusual degradation of the equipment or parts due to an unsuitable installation environment. No
representation or other affirmation of facts, including but not limited to statements regarding capacity, suitability
for use, or performance of the equipment, shall be or be deemed to be a warranty or representation by the
Seller for any purpose, nor give rise to any liability or obligation of the Seller whatsoever. The Purchaser’s sole
and exclusive remedy in the event of breach of warranty, as set forth herein, is expressly limited to (1) the
correction of the defect by adjustment, repair, modification, or replacement, or (2) issuance of a credit or refund
of the purchase price for the defective equipment at the Seller’s election and sole expense.
The Seller offers to extend the period of warranty under special conditions to a limited number of products.

13. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY - IN NO EVENT SHALL THE SELLER BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF PROFITS,
INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF ANY BREACH
OF THIS AGREEMENT OR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE AGREEMENT. THE SELLER SHALL NOT BE
LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY DELAY IN SHIPMENT, INSTALLATION OR FURNISHING OF
EQUIPMENT OR SERVICES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. No action arising out of any claimed breach of this
Agreement may be brought by either party more that two (2) years after the cause of action has accrued.
14. PATENT INDEMNITY - The Seller shall defend or settle any suit or proceeding brought against the Purchaser
based on a claim that any equipment made to the Seller design and furnished hereunder constitutes an

writing and is given complete authority and information required for the defense, and the Seller shall pay all
damages and costs awarded against the Purchaser, but shall not be responsible for any costs, expense or
compromise incurred or made by the Purchaser without the Seller’s prior written consent. If any equipment is
in the Seller’s opinion likely to or does become the subject of a claim for patent infringement, the Seller may at
its option and expense procure for the Purchaser the right to continue using the device, or modify it to become
noninfringing, but in the event the Seller is not reasonably able to modify, substitute or otherwise procure for
the Purchaser the right to continue using it, the Seller will remove such equipment and refund to the
Purchaser the amount paid in excess of a reasonable rental for past use. The Seller shall not be liable for any
infringement or claim based upon use of the equipment in combination with other equipment not supplied by
the Seller, or with modifications made by the Purchaser. The foregoing states the entire liability of the Seller to
the Purchaser arising from patent infringement.
15. SELLER’S REMEDIES - Should the Purchaser fail to make any payment within ten (10) days of its due date,
or fail to perform any other of the Customer’s obligation hereunder upon thirty (30) days written notice, or
should the Purchaser be or become insolvent or be a party to any bankruptcy or receivership proceeding prior
to full payment or all amounts payable hereunder, the Seller may: (a) with or without demand or notice to the
Purchaser declare the entire amount unpaid immediately due and payable; (b) enter upon the premises where
the equipment may be found and remove it (the Purchaser shall assemble the equipment and make it available
to the Seller at a place reasonably convenient to both parties and shall permit and assist the Seller in effecting
the retaking and removal of the equipment); and (c) sell any or all the equipment as permitted under applicable
law, applying the proceeds of the sale to payment of the expenses of retaking, repairing and selling the
equipment, reasonable attorney fees and to the satisfaction of all indebtedness the due and unpaid under this
Agreement. Any surplus shall be paid to the Purchaser and any deficiency shall be paid to the Seller by the
Purchaser.
16. INSURANCE - Until full payment of the purchase price or final acceptance of the equipment, whichever is later,
Purchaser shall keep insured materials and equipment shipped to Purchaser by Seller under policies with such
provisions, for such amounts and with such insurers as shall be satisfactory to Seller, and shall furnish
evidence of such insurance satisfactory to Seller.
