Terms of Purchase

THESE TERMS OF PURCHASE GOVERN THE SALE OF ALL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ("PRODUCTS") BY ARCSCALE ("SELLER") AND APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY CONFLICTING, CONTRARY OR ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN ANY PURCHASE ORDER OR OTHER DOCUMENT OR COMMUNICATION ("PURCHASE ORDER") FROM BUYER.  THESE TERMS OF PURCHASE MAY ONLY BE WAIVED OR MODIFIED IN A WRITTEN AGREEMENT SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF SELLER. NEITHER SELLER'S ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF A PURCHASE ORDER NOR SELLER'S FAILURE TO OBJECT TO CONFLICTING, CONTRARY OR ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN A PURCHASE ORDER SHALL BE DEEMED AN ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR A WAIVER OF THE PROVISIONS HEREOF.

ORDERS. Orders shall be initiated by Buyer issuing a Purchase Order or otherwise placing an order by electronic means acceptable to Seller. Orders shall identify the Products, unit quantities, part numbers, descriptions, applicable prices and requested delivery dates. All orders are subject to acceptance by Seller. No orders for Products may be cancelled or rescheduled without Seller's consent, which consent may be given by Seller in its sole and absolute discretion.

PRICES AND PAYMENT. Prices shall be as specified by Seller and shall be applicable for the period specified in Seller's quote. If no period is specified, prices shall be applicable for seven (7) days. Notwithstanding the foregoing, prices shall be subject to increase in the event of an increase in Seller's costs or other circumstances beyond Seller's reasonable control. Prices are exclusive of taxes, impositions and other miscellaneous charges. If Seller shall be liable for or shall pay any of the foregoing, same shall be paid by Buyer to Seller in addition to the price of the Products. The full purchase price, including freight and taxes, is due at the time when goods are ordered, unless Seller, in its sole discretion, approves Buyer’s creditworthiness, in which case full payment shall be due within thirty (30) days from date of shipment or as otherwise specified by Seller. Buyer agrees to pay the entire net amount of each invoice from Seller pursuant to the terms of each such invoice without offset or deduction. Buyer agrees to submit such financial information from time to time as may be reasonably requested by Seller for the establishment and/or continuation of credit terms. Buyer shall pay interest on any invoice not paid when due from the due date to the date of payment at the rate of one and one-half (1-1/2%) percent per month or such lower rate as may be the maximum allowable by law. If Buyer fails to make payment when due, Seller may pursue any legal or equitable remedies, in which event Seller shall be entitled to reimbursement for costs of collection and reasonable attorneys fees.

DELIVERY AND TITLE. All shipments by Seller are FOB point of origin and all transportation charges shall be paid by Buyer in addition to the price of the Products. Delivery of the Products to the carrier shall constitute delivery to Buyer and title and risk of loss shall pass to Buyer upon delivery to the carrier. Selection of the carrier and delivery route shall be made by Seller unless specified by Buyer. Seller shall use reasonable efforts to initiate shipment and schedule delivery as close as possible to Buyer's requested delivery dates. Buyer acknowledges that delivery dates provided by Seller are estimates only and that Seller is not liable for failure to deliver on such dates. Seller reserves the right to make deliveries in installments. Delivery of a quantity which varies from the quantity specified shall not relieve Buyer of the obligation to accept delivery and pay for the Products delivered. Delay in delivery of one installment shall not entitle Buyer to cancel other installments. All goods sold by Seller shall be deemed accepted by Buyer at the time of shipment.  If Buyer notifies Seller, in writing, and Seller confirms, in its sole discretion, that goods received by Buyer are damaged, defective or cannot be made operational at the time of delivery, and if Buyer complies with the procedures governing return of the goods set forth in these Terms of Purchase, Seller shall credit Buyer’s account for the purchase price of the goods upon return of the goods to the Seller. If an order includes software or other intellectual property, such software or other intellectual property is provided by Seller to Buyer subject to the copyright and user license, the terms and conditions of which are set forth in the license agreement accompanying such software or other intellectual property. Nothing herein shall be construed to grant any rights or license to use any software or other intellectual property in any manner or for any purpose not expressly permitted by such license agreement.


RETURNS.  Software products cannot be returned.  To return unopened products other than software, Buyer must request a Return Merchandise Authorization ("RMA") Number, which may be issued by Seller in its sole discretion.  All products to be returned must be unopened, leaving the manufacturer’s external seal intact.  If a product has been opened, Seller will have no obligation to accept the return of such product.  Returned Products must be in original manufacturer's shipping cartons complete with all packing materials. All Products for return shall be returned freight prepaid in the manner specified in the RMA. If returned Products are claimed to be defective, a complete description of the nature of the defect must be included with the returned Products. Products not eligible for return shall be returned to Buyer, freight collect.  If Buyer receives shipment of goods over the quantity ordered in the Sales Contract, or an incorrect product, Buyer shall notify Seller and return such goods with manufacturer’s external seal intact within five days of Buyer’s receipt thereof; otherwise Buyer will be responsible for the purchase price of such goods.  If the goods purchased by Buyer constitute an upgrade, Buyer shall return the original part or product in accordance with the manufacturer’s requirements for return of the same.  If Buyer shall fail to return the original part within thirty days of the date that the upgrade should have been shipped, then Buyer shall not receive a credit for the original part and shall pay the full purchase price for the upgrade.  Buyer is responsible for freight on all returns and must be able to demonstrate proof of delivery.

WARRANTY. In the case of all goods sold hereunder, the only applicable warranties will be provided by the manufacturers of such goods.  Seller shall assign to Buyer an warranty delivered to it by the manufacturer of such product and such warranty shall expressly be in lieu of any other warranty by Seller.   Seller makes no other warranty, express or implied, with respect to the Products. IN PARTICULAR, SELLER MAKES NO WARRANTY RESPECTING THE MERCHANTABILITY OF THE PRODUCTS OR THEIR SUITABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE OR RESPECTING INFRINGEMENT.

SELLER SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR AND BUYER SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD SELLER HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIMS BASED ON SELLER'S COMPLIANCE WITH BUYER'S DESIGNS, SPECIFICATIONS OR INSTRUCTIONS, OR MODIFICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS BY PARTIES OTHER THAN SELLER, OR USE IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER PRODUCTS. If statements or advice, technical or otherwise, are offered or given to Buyer, such statements or advice shall be deemed to be given as an accommodation to Buyer and without charge and Seller shall have no responsibility or liability for the content or use of such statements or advice.

Any attempted or purported assignment shall be void.
