Seller shall notify the Buyer of the shipment date. The shipment date given by Seller in advance of actual shipment is only an estimate. The failure of Seller to ship or any delay in shipping products shall not be a material breach of these Conditions, or otherwise subject Seller to liability for such failure or delay caused by an act of God, fire, flood, sabotage, war, terrorism, labor difficulties, accidents, riot, insurrection, act of any governmental authority, priorities granted at the request or for the benefit directly or indirectly of any government or agency thereof, or any other cause reasonably beyond the control of Seller.


The Buyer will deal directly with the carrier regarding any damage to products resulting from shipment.


Seller shall be under no obligation to make any shipment when the Buyer is in default hereunder or under any other sale agreement between Seller and the Buyer.

6. Product Returns


Written authorization must be obtained from Seller before any products are returned. Returned products will not be accepted unless returned shipments bear Seller’s return authorization number and the specific RMA number which has been approved/accepted by Seller’s customer service group. Absent a breach of its limited warranty by Seller (see below), the Buyer is only entitled to an issuance of credit to its account with Seller for any returned products. Refunds will not be made for returned products.


Products returned for reasons other than a breach of Seller’s limited warranty must not be used, damaged or out-of-date. If any such products are received, the price of such products shall not be included in the resultant credit. Goods must be securely and carefully packaged so as to reach Seller in good condition.


All such authorized returns will be subject to restocking charges.

7. Change Orders

The Buyer may reschedule shipment dates for any products ordered, provided that the Buyer notifies Seller of such change, in writing, at least thirty (30) days prior to the originally scheduled shipment date. Any such rescheduled shipment date later than ninety (90) days after the originally scheduled shipment date may be deemed by Seller to be a cancellation by Buyer, and be subject to applicable Cancellation Charges identified below.

8. Cancellations


The Buyer may cancel an order, subject to the terms provided herein, no less than thirty (30) days prior to the scheduled shipment date for standard catalog items. All cancellations are subject to a Cancellation Charge to be determined by Seller, and which will be based on completed goods, restocking of standard parts and/or materials purchased for the express purpose of fulfilling the Buyer’s order. All products, parts or materials ordered or held by Seller at the Buyer’s request shall be at the risk and expense of the Buyer upon cancellation. Seller will invoice the Buyer for such Cancellation Charge, which is due and payable thirty (30) days from issuance.


All nonstandard customer-specific items are non-cancelable and non-returnable.

9. Limited Warranty


Seller warrants products of its manufacture to be free from defects in material and workmanship under conditions of normal use for one (1) year after delivery.  Seller specifically disclaims all other warranties expressed or implied, including, but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement of any third party patents, copyrights, trade secrets or other intellectual property rights.  The Buyer agrees to use its own independent judgment in making, using, selling or distributing Buyer’s products, and agrees to assume the entire risk arising out of the use or performance of Seller’s products, and any products the Buyer designs using Seller’s products.


Seller, at its option and expense, will replace or repair any defective or faulty product which results directly from defects in material or workmanship provided that Seller first be given written notice of such defects and shall have authorized the return as provided herein. The existence of a defect or fault shall be determined by Seller at its sole discretion. Such determination shall be conclusive and not subject to reconsideration.


The sole obligation of Seller under this warranty shall be limited to the issuance of credit for or replacement of any products, which are proved to be other than as warranted. Seller shall have the sole discretion as to which of these remedies shall apply.


Any claim for breach of this warranty shall conclusively be deemed to be waived by the Buyer unless written notice of the claimed defect is submitted to Seller within thirty (30) days after the date on which the defect is discovered.


This warranty shall be voided if the original Buyer transfers ownership of warranted products, unless Seller is notified in writing of the name and address of the transferee within fifteen (15) days after the date on which the transfer was made. This restriction on ownership transfer is not applicable if the original Buyer is an authorized distributor of Seller.


This warranty shall not apply to any product which has been subjected to any misuse, neglect, accidental damage or that contains defects, which are in any way attributed to improper storage, installation or to alterations or repairs made by any party not authorized by Seller. This warranty does not apply to products, which have been disassembled, modified, physically or electrically damaged, or subjected to conditions exceeding the applicable specifications or rating.


All freight and shipping charges incurred to repair or replace-warranted products are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

10. Nondisclosure

The Buyer agrees that it will not disclose or make available to any third party any confidential or proprietary information marked as such belonging to Seller, including, but not limited to, drawings, data, or other information pertaining to purchase orders without obtaining Seller’s prior written authorization for such disclosure. The Buyer shall cause its employees, agents and others having access to such information to be aware of, and to abide by, the terms of this paragraph.

11. Export Compliance; Reverse Engineering

Products, services and/or technical data provided or disclosed in connection with any sale may be subject to required and continuing U.S. government approvals, clearances, regulations and import/export and re-export requirements, including, without limitation, the U.S. Department of State International Traffic in Arms Regulations (Title 22, CFR Parts 120-130), the U.S. Department of Commerce Export Administration Regulations (Title 15, CFR 730-774) and any other U.S. government regulation applicable to the export/import, re-export or disclosure of such controlled technical data (or the products thereof) to foreign nationals. Buyer acknowledges and agrees to comply with all such U.S. regulations regarding export/import, re-export or disclosure and has and will maintain any and all such registrations, licenses, agreements, approvals and/or certifications as may be required in connection with this sale. Buyer shall not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, create derivative works from, or emulate the functionality of the Seller's confidential and/or proprietary information.

12. Governing Law

The Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions. The venue for any litigation involving the interpretation or application of these Conditions shall be in New York State Supreme Court, Onondaga County. Each Party hereby consents to the jurisdiction of Onondaga County Supreme Court.
