THIS SALES ORDER ACKNOWLEDGMENT IS MADE AND GIVEN ON THE EXPRESS UNDERSTANDING THAT THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY TO THE SALE OF SELLER'S PRODUCTS. SELLER'S ACCEPTANCE OF ANY ORDER IS EXPRESSLY MADE CONDITIONAL UPON BUYER'S ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND SELLER OBJECTS TO ANY ADDITIONAL OR DIFFERENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER CONTAINED IN BUYER'S FORMS OR OTHERWISE. SELLER WILL NOT BE DEEMED TO HAVE WAIVED THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE IF IT FAILS TO OBJECT TO PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN BUYER'S FORMS OR OTHERWISE. BUYER'S SILENCE OR ITS ACCEPTANCE OF SELLER'S GOODS CONSTITUTES ITS ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE.
1. PAYMENT. The price of the goods and payment terms and method are reflected on the face of this Sales Order and include sales tax where applicable. All purchases are prepaid, unless other arrangements are made by Buyer with Seller. Buyer accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal. If any payment due under this Agreement from Buyer is not paid when due, then Buyer shall pay interest on such overdue amount at the rate equal 1½% per month or the highest legal rate under applicable law, whichever amount is lower.
2. DELIVERY AND RISK OF LOSS. Shipment shall be made F.O.B., Seller’s warehouse by UPS or other nationally known carrier and charged to Buyer at the rates charged to Seller by such carrier. Delivery dates depend upon the service selected by Buyer and are not guaranteed. Title to the goods and liability for loss or damage in transit or thereafter shall pass to Buyer upon Seller’s delivery of the goods to a carrier for shipment. For Indian reservations in California,, the ownership of the item purchased will transfer to the Indian purchaser upon delivery of the property on the reservation or rancheria. In-stock items are usually shipped the same day for orders received before 1:00 P.M. Pacific Time and out-of-stock items will ship upon receipt and processing in Seller’s warehouse.
3. TAXES. Sales tax is charged on all orders that are shipped to California unless Buyer is tax exempt. Tax exempt customers must submit current tax exemption certificates to Seller to be exempt from sales tax. Buyer shall be solely responsible for all taxes due or payable to any taxing jurisdiction as a result of the sale, installation, delivery or use of the goods provided to Buyer under this Sales Order and shall indemnify and hold Seller harmless from any such taxes and all interest and penalties assessed in connection with such taxes.
4. INSPECTION AND DISCREPANCIES. Buyer will make adequate inspection of the goods immediately after their receipt and will give Seller notice within 5 days of delivery of any variance or non-conformance in the received goods. Buyer's failure to so notify Seller will constitute a waiver of such variance or non-conformity. Claims for goods delivered damaged or defective shall also be filed with Seller within 5 days after date of shipment. Goods delivered damaged or defective due to the fault of the carrier will be handled by Seller directly with the carrier. Use of goods or failure to give notice to Seller within the time required by this Section shall constitute acceptance of the goods.
5. RETURNS. Buyer may return the goods within 90 days of receipt for any reason; provided goods are not damaged by Buyer and returned with all accessories, documentation and packaging. To return an item, Buyer shall contact Customer Service to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) number. An RMA number is required for all returns. Returns must be shipped prepaid and properly packaged. Buyer assumes the risk of loss to returned goods until the goods are received by Seller.
6. DELAYS. Unless a shipping or delivery date is specified as firm on the face hereof, or otherwise in writing signed by Seller, Seller will use reasonable efforts to fill the order in accordance with the estimated delivery or shipping date, but Seller will not be responsible for any delays in filling the order nor liable for any losses or damages resulting from such delays, and the order will not be subject to cancellation for such delays.
7. FORCE MAJEURE.
