The following terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) apply to the sale and shipment of products (“Products”) by Dynisco Instruments LLC or any of its affiliates (collectively, “Seller”) to any purchaser (“Buyer”) unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Seller. Additional terms and conditions as found on Seller’s forms of acknowledgement and invoices are to be considered as part of these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions will supersede any terms and conditions stated in any purchase order or similar document furnished by Buyer and may be modified only by the express agreement of Seller and Buyer.
Payment Terms. All payments due to Seller shall be due net 30 days from the date of invoice, and shall be payable by wire transfer or check, in United States dollars, to an account designated by Seller. Seller reserves the right to change its terms of sale or to require prior payment, a letter of credit, or cash on delivery when, in the opinion of Seller, the financial condition or previous payment record of Buyer so warrants. Should Buyer become delinquent in any payment due, Seller shall be entitled, without notice, to suspend performance until the delinquency has been corrected. Seller shall not be obligated to extend credit to any Buyer.
Prices. All prices quoted are exclusive of any applicable taxes and import/export duties imposed by federal, state, city or local authorities, including, without limitation, sales and use taxes, value added taxes, excise, property, customs, and similar taxes or duties. Any such tax, fee, or charge shall be paid by Buyer in addition to the prices quoted or invoiced. Prices shown on Seller’s acknowledgment are Seller’s present effective prices. Shipments will be billed at Seller’s prices in effect at the time of shipment. A copy of Seller’s latest prices in effect at the time of shipment will be forwarded upon request.
Acceptance of Orders. All orders for Products must be presented in writing. Orders shall not be considered accepted unless Seller expresses its acceptance in writing or ships the Products ordered. If the order is a blanket purchase order and Seller accepts any portion of the blanket purchase order in writing or ships any Product under the blanket purchase order, the entire blanket purchase order shall be deemed accepted by Seller, and these Terms and Conditions shall apply to the entire blanket purchase order. Seller reserves the right to refuse any order, in whole or in part, or to specify an alternate delivery schedule if orders for any Product from all sources exceed Seller’s inventory or ability to deliver. Seller may allocate available inventory and production in its sole discretion.
Cancellation of Orders. Accepted orders, whether a one-time or a blanket purchase order, may be cancelled by Buyer only with Seller’s prior written consent and only upon payment of such reasonable cancellation charges as Seller may request. Reasonable cancellation charges may include, but not be limited to, tooling and work-in-progress expenses. If Seller does not consent to cancellation, Buyer shall pay the full amount of such order.
Shipment & Delivery. Delivery dates indicated on any quotation or order acknowledgment are estimated and are not guaranteed. In the event that Products ordered under a blanket purchase order are not released by Buyer within 180 days of acceptance of the order by Seller, Seller may ship the Products and invoice Buyer accordingly. All shipments are made FCA Franklin, MA, USA, unless otherwise specified in Seller’s order acknowledgement. Unless otherwise requested in Buyer’s order, Seller will select the least expensive method of shipment, taking into consideration the delivery schedule and any special requirements of Buyer’s order, and Buyer will pay all transportation, freight and similar charges, including taxes and import duties.
Title to the Products and risk of loss or damage shall pass to Buyer upon issuance of the carrier’s bill of lading, and Seller shall not be liable for any delays or loss or damage to the Products in transit. Taxes, duties, freight, and shipping charges will be included on Seller’s invoice and are subject to all terms and conditions of payment stated herein. Inspection. Buyer shall inspect all Products upon arrival and shall give written notice to Seller, within five (5) days of arrival, of any claim for shortage or other nonconformance with the terms of Buyer’s order. If Buyer fails to give timely notice, all Products shall be deemed to conform to the terms of Buyer’s order.
Force Majeure. Seller shall not be liable or deemed to be in default for non-performance or delay in performance of its obligations under these Terms and Conditions to the extent caused by conditions beyond its control, including war, civil disturbances, fire, flood, acts of God, governmental laws, regulations or orders, strikes or labor disputes affecting Seller or its suppliers, accident, explosion, casualty, embargo, or inability to secure necessary labor, materials or supplies.
Returns and Restocking Fee. No returns will be accepted without a return material authorization (“RMA”) number. Seller shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether it will provide an RMA number. To obtain an RMA number, Buyer should call Seller’s customer service department. If given, RMA numbers shall be valid for forty-five (45) days from issuance. Products returned for credit must be in the same condition as when such Products were shipped by Seller and in the original, unopened packaging. Seller may charge a restocking fee of up to twenty-five percent (25%) of the invoice price for all returned Products, unless Products are returned under a valid warranty claim.
Limited Warranty. Seller warrants that all Products manufactured by Seller will be free from defects in material and workmanship and will conform substantially to Seller’s specifications as set forth in any applicable Product documentation for a period that is product specific (see below), from the date of shipment. Notice of any defect, including a reasonably detailed description of the problem or difficulty experienced, must be made to Seller in writing within thirty (30) calendar days following discovery thereof and prior to the expiration of the warranty period as described above.
If Seller determines that any Product does not conform to the foregoing warranty, Buyer’s sole remedy, and Seller’s entire liability, for breach of the foregoing warranty shall be the repair or replacement, at Seller’s option, of the non-conforming Product or part or, if neither is, in Seller’s opinion, commercially feasible, a refund of the purchase price paid for commercially feasible, a refund of the purchase price paid for the Product. Defective Products must be returned to Seller’s plant or a designated Seller service center for inspection. Buyer will prepay all freight charges to return any defective or non-conforming Product to Seller’s designated facility, and Seller will deliver the repaired or replacement Products to Buyer freight prepaid. Products returned to Seller for which Seller provides replacement Products hereunder shall become the property of Seller. At Seller’s option, replacement of any Product may be made by substitution of another Product that is substantially similar in form and function.
