Terms of Sale
The following Terms and Conditions of Sale (the "Terms") are applicable to the provision of all goods supplied and/or services rendered ("goods") by Pemro Corporation, an Ohio corporation and its affiliates (collectively "Pemro"), to any purchaser, or in the case of sample products or material, recipient, thereof ("Buyer").
Pemro's offer for sale of goods and Buyer's acceptance of any such offer is governed exclusively by these Terms unless otherwise agreed in writing signed by Pemro. If an order is deemed to be an offer by Buyer, Pemro's acceptance of such offer is expressly conditioned on Buyer's assent to these Terms. Any additional, different, or conflicting terms proposed by Buyer in any offer, acceptance, confirmation (including any Buyer purchase order or specifications) or otherwise, (a) are requests for material alterations to these Terms, (b) are hereby rejected and objected to by Pemro, and (c) will not be binding in any way on Pemro.
Price & Payment
The goods are hereby offered for sale at prices to be established by Pemro. Unless otherwise specified on Pemro's invoice, order confirmation, acknowledgment or otherwise agreed to by the parties in writing, Buyer will pay for all goods on a net thirty (30) day basis. Pemro reserves the right to assess reasonable interest charges on any amounts not paid by the date such payments are due. All orders are subject to credit approval by Pemro. Pemro reserves the right to withhold shipment or to require other adequate assurances of performance of Buyer's payment obligations as Pemro in its discretion may require, notwithstanding any order confirmation issued by Pemro. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, additional cleaning or oiling charges with respect to Buyer supplied materials ("Buyer Materials") not otherwise noted on Pemro's order quotation, confirmation, or acknowledgment may be applied at the discretion of Pemro upon its receipt of such Buyer Materials.
Pemro's price for goods is exclusive of any Federal, state, or local sales, use, or excise taxes levied upon, or measured by, the sale, the sales price, or use of goods required in the performance of any order. Pemro will list separately on its invoice any such taxes applicable to any such goods or transaction, and payable by Buyer, with respect to which Buyer does not furnish to Pemro evidence of exemption.
Pemro will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet the delivery dates, specifications, and quantities as set forth in Buyer's purchase order. Pemro will not, however, be liable for damages or delays in delivery due to causes beyond its reasonable control.
Pemro warrants to Buyer that at the time of delivery Pemro will have good title to all goods supplied to Buyer and the right to convey title to such goods to Buyer free and clear of all liens. Pemro further warrants to Buyer that at the time of delivery all such goods will conform to the specifications, drawings, samples, or other description furnished or specified by Buyer or agreed to in writing by Pemro, and will be free from defects in material and workmanship. Pemro further warrants that any services it provides hereunder will be performed in a workmanlike manner. The warranties stated in this Clause 5 are the only representations and warranties Pemro has given Buyer in connection with the provision of goods to Buyer. THIS WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO ITS PRECISE TERMS AND PROVIDES EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES, EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER REMEDIES OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING CLAIMS FOR SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. PEMRO NEITHER MAKES NOR ASSUMES ANY OTHER WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES WHATSOEVER, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NEITHER BUYER, NOR ANY SUB-DISTRIBUTOR, AGENT OR DEALER UNDER IT, NOR ANY OTHER PERSON, IS AUTHORIZED TO ASSUME FOR PEMRO ANY OBLIGATION OR LIABILITY NOT STRICTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOREGOING, OR TO REPRESENT THAT PEMRO MAKES ANY OTHER WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE. All other warranties Pemro or anyone purporting to represent Pemro may have given, or which may be provided or implied by law or commercial practice, ARE HEREBY EXCLUDED.
Upon Buyer's receipt of shipment, Buyer shall immediately inspect the goods. Unless Buyer provides Pemro with written notice of any claim for shortage, defect or nonconformity in the goods within ten (10) days after receipt of shipment, such goods shall be deemed finally inspected, checked and accepted by Buyer and Buyer's failure to provide such notice shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any such claim.
Non-cancellable/non-returnable (NCNR) & Special Order Materials
Any Product that is or becomes designated as NCNR (non-cancelable, non-returnable) or Special Order (special order, non-cancelable, non-returnable) shall be considered strictly as non-cancelable, non-returnable and non-reschedulable. Buyer assumes full liability for any Product (NCNR Materials) that: (a) has been shipped to Buyer and/or (b) is being held in Pemro's inventory for Buyer and/or (c) has been ordered by Pemro from and been manufactured by Pemro's Supplier, in whole or in part, and/or (d) is part work-in-process and/or pre-built value enhanced Product being held in Pemro's or its subcontractor's inventory for Buyer. Buyer shall pay any cancellation charges invoiced to Pemro by its Supplier with respect to NCNR Materials, as well as any related labor, transportation, raw materials and storage costs.
Cancellation & Rescheduling
Except for NCNR materials, Buyer may cancel or reschedule orders prior to delivery to the carrier only upon 30 days written notice and written consent of Pemro. If Pemro consents to the cancellation of an order for Products, in Pemro's discretion, Buyer shall pay Pemro any Supplier's restocking fee and reasonable cancellation charges. Buyer may only request rescheduling of deliveries for orders having an original delivery date of no less than 60 days from the date a written rescheduling request is received by Pemro. If Buyer requests an accelerated delivery date, Pemro will use its commercially reasonable efforts to meet such request. If Buyer requests a delayed delivery date, the rescheduled delivery date may not be greater than 60 days later than the original delivery date. Any extra cost incurred by Pemro to meet Buyer's request for rescheduling/cancellation will be Buyer's responsibility.
Buyer may only return Products with Pemro's consent and in accordance with Pemro's Return Policy. Upon confirmation of right to return, Pemro shall issue or cause to be issued a Return Material Authorization (RMA). Upon receipt of returned Products, Pemro has the right to issue and Buyer agrees to accept a credit memo in the amount of the value of the returned Products which may be used as a credit toward future purchases for a period of one (1) year after issuance.
