STANDARD Terms and Conditions OF SALE
Last Updated October 12, 2018
- These Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale (these "Terms") are the only terms which govern the sale of the goods (the "Goods") by Surgical Product Solutions LLC ("Seller") to the buyer ("Buyer") named on the accompanying invoice and/or sales confirmation (each, a " Sales Confirmation"). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if a written contract signed by both parties is in existence covering the sale of the Goods covered hereby, the terms and conditions of said contract shall prevail to the extent they are inconsistent with these Terms.
- The applicable Sales Confirmation and these Terms (collectively, this "Agreement") comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. These Terms prevail over any of Buyer's general terms and conditions of purchase. Fulfillment of Buyer's order does not constitute acceptance of any of Buyer's terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms.
- The goods will be delivered within a reasonable time after the receipt of Buyer's purchase order, subject to availability of the Goods. Seller shall not be liable for any delays, loss or damage in transit.
- Seller may, in its sole discretion, without liability or penalty, make partial shipments of Goods to Buyer. Each shipment will constitute a separate sale, and Buyer shall pay for the units shipped whether such shipment is in whole or partial fulfillment of Buyer's purchase order.
- QUANTITY. If Seller delivers to Buyer a quantity of Goods of up to 5% more or less than the quantity set forth in the Sales Confirmation (or at least 75% of the quantity set forth in the Sales Confirmation if the undelivered Goods are on back order), Buyer shall not be entitled to object to or reject the Goods or any portion of them by reason of the surplus or shortfall and shall pay for such Goods the price set forth in the Sales Confirmation adjusted pro rata.
- SHIPPING TERMS AND RISK OF LOSS. Delivery shall be made, and risk of loss shall pass to Buyer, FOB Seller’s place of business.
- AMENDMENT AND MODIFICATION. These Terms may only be amended or modified in a writing which specifically states that it amends these Terms and is signed by an authorized representative of each party.
- PRICE. Buyer shall purchase the Goods from Seller at the price (the "Price") set forth in the Sales Confirmation. All Prices are exclusive of all sales, use and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any governmental authority on any amounts payable by Buyer. Buyer shall be responsible for all such charges, costs and taxes; provided that, Buyer shall not be responsible for any taxes imposed on, or with respect to, Seller's income, revenues, gross receipts, personnel or real or personal property or other assets.
- If Buyer is an approved customer, Buyer shall pay all invoiced amounts due to Seller within 30 days from the date of Seller's invoice unless otherwise stated in the Sales Confirmation. If Buyer is not an approved customer, Buyer shall make payment of all invoiced amounts due to Seller prior to shipment of the Goods by Seller. If Buyer is an international customer, all payments hereunder shall be made by wire transfer or paypal transfer.
- Buyer shall pay interest on all late payments at the lesser of the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permissible under applicable law, calculated daily and compounded monthly. Buyer shall reimburse Seller for all costs incurred in collecting any late payments, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees. In addition to all other remedies available under these Terms or at law (which Seller does not waive by the exercise of any rights hereunder), Seller shall be entitled to suspend the delivery of any Goods if Buyer fails to pay any amounts when due hereunder and such failure continues for ten (10) days following written notice thereof.
- Buyer shall not withhold payment of any amounts due and payable by reason of any set-off of any claim or dispute with Seller, whether relating to Seller's breach, bankruptcy or otherwise.
- Seller warrants to Buyer that the Goods will conform to Seller’s Quality Assurance & Service Guarantee, available at http://www.surgicalproductsolutions.com/docs/SPS-Quality-Assurance.pdf and incorporated herein by reference, for a period beginning on the date of shipment and expiring on the earlier of (i) one (1) year from the date of shipment of the Goods and (ii) the expiration date of the applicable Good (the "Warranty Period").
- The Goods consist of products manufactured by a third party ("Third Party Product"). For the avoidance of doubt, EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 8(a), SELLER MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT, INCLUDING ANY (a) WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY; (b) WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; (c) WARRANTY OF TITLE; OR (d) WARRANTY AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED BY LAW, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OF TRADE OR OTHERWISE. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon request, Seller shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to pass through to Buyer any manufacturer, distributor, or other third party warranties covering such Third Party Products included in the Goods and in favor of Seller.
- With respect to any such Goods being in breach of the limited warranty set forth in Section 8(a) hereof during the Warranty Period, Seller shall, in its sole discretion, either: (i) repair or replace such Goods (or the defective part) or (ii) credit or refund the price of such Goods at the pro rata contract rate; provided that, if Seller so requests, Buyer shall, at Seller's expense, return such Goods to Seller.
