loss, or economic injury arising out of this order.
6. Waiver Any failure of Buyer to enforce at any time or for any period of time any of the provisions of
this purchase order shall not constitute a waiver of such provisions nor of Buyer's right to enforce each and
every provision.
7. Acceptance and Warranty Final acceptance of Goods or Services by Buyer shall not occur until after
delivery to Buyer's facility from which this order originates, unless otherwise specified herein. Risk of loss
of or damage to Goods shall remain with Seller until accepted by Buyer.
Seller warrants that:
(1) all Goods or Services supplied by Seller under this order conform to the requirements, specification,
drawings, samples or other descriptions furnished to or adopted by Buyer and that they are of good
material and workmanship and free from all defects in manufacture or design and are of merchantable
quality and fit for their intended purpose;
(2) upon payment of the purchase price, Buyer shall receive good title to Goods free and clear of all liens,
encumbrances and claims;
(3) all Goods supplied by Seller under this order shall comply with all applicable governmental laws and
regulations.
Such warranties by Seller shall run to the benefit of Buyer, its employees and purchasers from Buyer.
Buyer's approval of designs furnished by Seller shall not relieve Seller of its obligation under this warranty.
Seller's warranty shall be effective for a period of time as set forth on the face of this purchase order. If no
such schedule is set forth on the face hereof, the warranty shall be effective for a period of one year from
the date of acceptance of Goods or Services by Buyer, or for such longer period specified by Seller.
All Goods returned to Seller or Services rejected for breach of warranty hereunder shall be at Seller's
expense including expenses and penalties incurred by Buyer in recalling such Goods or Services which
have been delivered to Buyer's customers and expenses of redelivery.
Seller agrees that shipment of Goods against this purchase order constitutes certification that all Goods
included in every shipment conform in all aspects to the applicable requirements, specifications and
drawings. Seller will make process control data, inspection and test reports covering the Goods and their
parts available for review and subject to examination by Buyer or its authorized representatives to verify
conformance to such applicable specifications and drawings. However, a certificate of conformance must
accompany individual shipments when so specified on applicable drawings.
Any Goods or Services not accepted by Buyer may be returned to Seller or rejected at Seller's expense for
full credit of the purchase price. Inspection may be performed on Goods at Buyer's option on a statistical
sampling basis. The entire lot of Goods may be rejected based on defects revealed by such sampling. At
Buyer's option, the rejected lot will be either returned to Seller for replacement or credit or fully screened
by Buyer with cost of screening paid by Seller. The initial inspection performed by Buyer on receipt of
Goods is a conditional acceptance and shall not waive Buyer's right to return Goods to Seller which exhibit
or develop defects due to latent causes during or after installation or testing of the end product.
Seller shall preserve all special drawings, dies, patterns, tooling or other items supplied or paid for by
Buyer in good condition and they are the property of Buyer unless otherwise specified, and such items
shall be returned in good condition when the work on this order has been completed or terminated, or at
any other time as requested by Buyer. No special drawing, die pattern, tool or other item supplied by
Buyer or made by Seller for the use of or delivery to Buyer or for use by Seller in supplying Buyer shall be
used by Seller for any purpose other than supplying Buyer, without Seller's first obtaining the written
consent of Buyer thereto, provided, however, that if any government has rights in such items under a
prime contract with Buyer, non-interfering use of the items for direct sales to such government is
authorized if written notice is provided to Buyer prior to such use. If material, equipment, special
drawings, dies, patterns or other items are furnished by Buyer for performance of this purchase order, all
risk of loss thereof or damage thereto shall be upon Seller from the time of shipment to Seller until
redelivery to and receipt by Buyer.
If Seller is prevented from delivering or Buyer is prevented from receiving the Goods or Services to be
furnished pursuant to this order as a result of governmental actions or regulations (except as hereinafter
provided) or of fires, strikes, accidents and other unforeseeable causes beyond the control of either party
the obligation to receive or deliver shall be suspended for a reasonable time during which such causes
continue to exist. If delivery by Seller is delayed more than ten (10) days as a result of any of these
events, Buyer may cancel any or all future deliveries from Seller without liability to Seller and may obtain
similar Goods from other suppliers.
8. Patents and Copyrights Seller agrees to indemnify and hold Buyer, its officers, agents, employees
and vendees (mediate and immediate) harmless from any and all loss, expense, damage, liability, claims
or demands for actual or alleged infringement of any patent invention, design, trademark or copyright
arising from the purchase, use or sale of Goods or Services furnished pursuant to this purchase order,
except where such infringement arises by reason of designs for such Goods or specifications for such
Services originally furnished to Seller by Buyer.
9. Changes Buyer may change from time to time any of the drawings, specifications or instructions for
Goods or Services covered by this purchase order and Seller shall comply with such change notices. If
such changes result in a decrease or increase in Seller's cost or in the time for performance, an adjustment
in the price and time for performance may be made by the parties in writing provided however that Seller
notifies Buyer of the request for such adjustment within thirty (30) days after receipt by it of the change
notice.
10. Assignments Seller shall not assign, delegate or otherwise transfer any of its duties hereunder
without prior written approval by Buyer, and any attempted assignment, delegation or transfer without
such consent shall be void. Seller shall not subcontract any substantial portion of the work to be
performed by it under this order without the prior written consent of Buyer.
11. Termination Buyer may terminate this contract in whole or in part at any time without cause by
written notice to Seller. Such notice shall state the extent and effective date of such termination, and
upon the receipt of such notice Seller will comply with Buyer's instructions pertaining to stoppage of work
hereunder and the placement of further orders or subcontracts hereunder. The parties shall thereupon
employ their commercially reasonable efforts to agree by negotiation within three (3) months upon the
amount of reimbursement, if any, to be paid to Seller for each termination. Termination under this
provision shall not be deemed a breach of contract. The provisions of this paragraph shall not limit or
affect the right of Buyer to terminate this order for cause and shall not apply to a termination for cause.
Seller shall mitigate its claim to the maximum extent and in any event no claim shall exceed the lesser of
fair market value or actual costs of Materials and work in progress which Seller shows cannot be diverted
to other uses. No claim shall be asserted or honored for loss of expected profits or for any consequential
indirect or incidental damages due to termination or cancellation or any other claim under this contract
12. Price Adjustment Buyer will not accept shipment at any increase in price above that indicated on
this order. Any general price decrease announced by Seller in classification of equipment and/or materials
similar to the Goods or Services described on this order shall automatically reduce the price thereof by a
comparable percentage.
13. Notice of Labor Disputes Whenever any actual or potential labor dispute delays or threatens to
delay the timely performance of this order, Seller shall immediately give notice thereof to Buyer.
14. Payment Terms Seller shall submit invoices only upon delivery of Goods or Services. Buyer shall
issue payment within sixty (60) days of receipt of a correct invoice provided Seller has delivered
conforming Goods or satisfactorily completed Services. Adjustments for payments made for rejected
Goods or Services or for any overpayment shall be deducted from subsequent payments due or, at buyer's
option, promptly refunded by Seller upon request.
15. Extra Charges No charges of any kind, including charges for boxing or cartage, will be allowed unless
specifically agreed by Buyer in writing. Pricing by weight, where applicable, covers net weight of Goods,
unless otherwise agreed.
16. Time of Delivery The delivery dates indicated by Buyer for the Goods or Services to be supplied
under this purchase order are of the essence. Failure to meet such delivery dates shall be considered a
breach of this contract; furthermore, Seller agrees to pay to Buyer any penalty and damages imposed
upon or incurred by Buyer for failure of Seller to deliver Goods or Services on such delivery dates. Unless
otherwise agreed in writing, Seller shall not make commitments for Materials or production in excess of the
amount or in advance of the time necessary to meet Buyer's delivery schedule. It is Seller's responsibility
to comply with this schedule, but not to anticipate Buyer's requirements. Goods shipped to Buyer in
advance of schedule may be returned to Seller at Seller's expense, and Services proffered in advance of
schedule may be rejected. Buyer may reschedule the delivery of any unshipped Goods or any unfurnished
Services for later delivery within ninety (90) days of the originally scheduled delivery date.
17. Setoff Buyer shall be entitled at all times to setoff any amount owing for any reason, at any time,
from Seller to Buyer or any subsidiaries or affiliates of Buyer against any amount payable at any time by
Buyer in connection with this order.
18. Taxes All taxes, fees and duties levied on the production or sale of Goods or rendering of Services
hereunder shall be for the account of Seller, except as expressly provided to the contrary on the face
hereof.
19. Reservation of Rights Buyer expressly reserves all rights and remedies which may be available to it.
20. Attachments Any attachments referenced on this order shall be deemed for all purposes to be an
integral part of this order. In the event of irreconcilable conflict between such referenced attachments and
the terms stated herein, the terms of such attachments shall control.
21. Overshipments Seller is instructed to ship only the quantity(ies) of Goods specified in this order.
However, any deviation caused by conditions of loading, shipping, packing or allowances in manufacturing
processes may by accepted by Buyer according to the overshipment allowance indicated on the face
hereof. If no allowance is shown, it shall be zero percent (0%). Buyer reserves the right to return any
overshipment in excess of the allowance at Seller's expense.
22. Packing and Shipping Instructions Seller agrees to insure that all shipments are properly packed
and described in accordance with Buyer's specifications and/or applicable carrier regulations. Shipments
will be made at the lowest freight charges. Buyer may assist Seller by providing freight classifications or
classifying material. Seller will not insure or declare value on shipments except on parcel post, unless
Buyer specifies otherwise. On shipments where value is declared, Seller will ship prepaid insured for the
minimum declared customs value to facilitate tracing. When shipping United Parcel Service (or other
similar delivery company), Seller will ship freight prepaid. Seller shall consolidate air and surface
shipments daily on one bill of lading per mode to avoid premium freight costs, unless instructed otherwise
by Buyer. In case of any shipment that does not correspond to normal past practice between Buyer and
Seller or to standard practice in the industry, Seller agrees to notify Buyer's traffic department at least
seventy-two (72) hours prior to shipment for special shipping instructions. Each box, crate or carton will
show Buyer's full street address and purchase order numbers regardless of how shipped. On shipment by
United Parcel Service (or other similar delivery company) or parcel post shipments, a packing list shall
accompany each container and shall describe the contents of that container. On other shipments, Seller
will provide a packing list to accompany each shipment, referencing the appropriate purchase order
number. The bill of lading also will reference the purchase order number. Seller is responsible for packing
any shipment correctly based on the carrier/mode utilized. Charges for packing and crating shall be
deemed part of the purchase price, and no additional charges will be made therefor unless specifically
requested by Buyer on the purchase order. Seller agrees to ship via the carrier specified by Buyer. All
premium freight cost incurred by Buyer or Seller beyond that specified by Buyer shall be borne by Seller.
Seller is responsible for all shipments which are damaged in transit due to improper packaging, improper
judgement or any other act or omission of Seller, shipper or carrier. Shipping terms used on the face
hereof shall have the meanings assigned to them by Incoterms 2000.
23. Returns Defective Goods shall be returned freight collect to Seller. Replacement Goods shall be sent
freight prepaid from Seller, who will absorb the burden of premium transportation when defective or
replacement Goods place critical time or delivery schedule constraints on Buyer.
24. Inspection; Records All Goods and Services will be subject to inspection and tests by or on behalf of
Buyer or (where required) by any government during manufacture and at all times and places to the
extent practicable. Seller shall provide and shall require all of Seller's subcontractors to provide an
inspection acceptable to the inspector. If an inspection or test is made by Buyer or any government on the
premises of Seller, Seller shall provide all reasonable facilities and assistance for the safety and
convenience of the inspectors in the performance of their duties. If required by any applicable law or
regulation Seller shall retain any pertinent books, papers, documents and records and allow government or
regulatory agency access and right to examine same.
Seller agrees to include in each subcontract Seller might make hereunder appropriate provisions to the
same effect.
25. Vendor Ownership Change Seller is required to submit immediately in writing to Buyer notification
of the following:
(a) acquisition by or merger with any other entity;
(b) majority or controlling interest obtained by any other entity.
26. Limitation of Liability TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, BUYER AND ITS AFFILIATES,
DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL,
PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
LOST PROFITS, WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF THE SELLER ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY
OR IF SUCH LOSSES WERE REASONABLY FORSEEABLE.
27. Confidential Information "Information" means any and all information, data, know-how and
documentation that is disclosed in written, oral, electronic, visual or other form which Seller learns or
receives from Buyer, except that which Seller can establish: (a) was on the date hereof generally known
to the public; (b) became generally known to the public after the date hereof other than as a result of
Seller's act or omission; (c) was contained in documents and rightfully known to Seller prior to Seller
learning or receiving same from Buyer; (d) was disclosed by Buyer to third parties generally without
restriction on use and disclosure; or (e) Seller lawfully received from a third party without that third
party's breach of agreement or obligation of trust. All Information is confidential and proprietary to Buyer.
Information shall at all times remain Buyer's exclusive property. Seller shall not permit any person to
reproduce or copy any portion of the Information. All Information and all copies thereof shall be returned
to Buyer promptly after completion of Seller's performance hereunder or termination or expiration of this
order. Any Confidential Information which cannot be returned must be destroyed and so certified by
Seller. Seller agrees to protect the Confidential Information by using the same degree of care as Seller
uses to protect its own confidential or proprietary information (but not less than a reasonable degree of
care). Seller shall use Information only to the extent necessary for Seller to perform Seller's obligations to
Buyer hereunder. Seller shall not disclose Information to or permit access to Information by any third
party except employees of Seller with a legitimate need to know Information to permit Seller to perform its
obligations hereunder.
The provisions of this paragraph shall survive termination, cancellation or
expiration of this order.
28. Severability If any provision of these general Conditions of Purchase is found to be invalid or
otherwise unenforceable, the further provisions herein will remain fully effective and the parties will be
bound by obligations which approximate, as closely as possible, the effect of the provision found invalid or
unenforceable, without being themselves invalid or unenforceable.
