- Certain Definitions Used in this Document. ”Seller” means Flexlink, LLC. “Purchaser” means the purchaser identified in the applicable document in which these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale are referenced as being applicable, irrespective of whether the document is an Invoice, Order Confirmation, Quotation, Statement, or other document (hereinafter, all references to such document and to the Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale, collectively shall be made by a reference to “this Document”). “Goods” mean the goods, equipment, supplies and services supplied by Seller to Purchaser as described in this Document. “Purchaser” and “Seller” include the respective heirs, executors, personal representatives, successors and permitted assigns of each.
- Terms are Exclusive. THIS DOCUMENT CONSTITUTES THE COMPLETE AND FINAL AGREEMENT OF PURCHASER AND SELLER FOR THE GOODS. THIS DOCUMENT MAY NOT BE ADDED TO, MODIFIED OR SUPERSEDED EXCEPT IN A WRITING SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF SELLER, EVEN THOUGH OTHER TERMS MAY APPEAR ON PURCHASER’S DOCUMENTS (ALL OF WHICH ARE HEREBY OBJECTED TO BY SELLER WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE). IF PURCHASER ACCEPTS ANY PERFORMANCE BY SELLER, PURCHASER WILL BE DEEMED TO HAVE ACCEPTED THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS DOCUMENT.
- Price. Unless otherwise agreed, prices will be those set forth in Seller’s pricing policies in effect at the time of tender of delivery. In the event Purchaser changes its order (if and when permitted by Seller), Seller may adjust prices accordingly. Unless otherwise stated, prices do not include applicable quotation fees, taxes, excises, duties or other governmental impositions which Seller may be required to pay or collect. Any such applicable taxes, etc., will be paid by Purchaser. Further, unless otherwise stated, all permits, licenses, or authorizations necessary for the use of the Goods will be obtained by Purchaser at its sole expense. IF THIS DOCUMENT IS A QUOTATION, THE TERMS AND PRICES QUOTED (IF ANY) WILL BE FIRM ONLY IF ACCEPTED BY PURCHASER WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS OF THE DATE OF THE QUOTATION.
- Payment. Unless otherwise agreed, payment will be net thirty (30) days. If Purchaser does not pay on time, Seller reserves the right to charge Purchaser 1.5% per month on the unpaid balance until paid in full. All credit card payments made over telephone will be charged a four (4) percent processing charge to be added to the price. Contact Seller for payment instructions if not already provided.
- Delivery. Unless otherwise agreed, the Goods will be delivered to Purchaser F.O.B. Seller’s facility. Any specified delivery date is approximate only. Title to the Goods will pass to Purchaser upon Seller’s tender of delivery of the Goods. If the Goods are held by Seller subject to receiving instructions from Purchaser, Seller may invoice the Goods and Purchaser agrees to make payment in accordance with this Document. Goods invoiced and held at any location by Seller will be held at Purchaser’s risk and Seller may charge for (but is not obligated to carry) insurance and storage. Purchaser will accept and pay for partial deliveries at contract prices and terms. When Purchaser has declared or manifested an intention not to accept delivery in accordance with this Document, no tender will be necessary but Seller may, at its option, give notice to Purchaser that Seller is ready and willing to deliver and such notice will constitute a valid tender of delivery.
- Excuse. Seller shall not be liable for failure to perform by reason of strikes, fires, floods, unavoidable accidents, wars, delays in transportation, acts of Gods, or other causes beyond its reasonable control. In connection with foregoing, Purchaser acknowledges that delivery of the Goods in contingent upon Seller’s ability to obtain supplies, raw materials and services through its regular and usual sources and thus, if for any reason beyond Seller’s control, Seller is not able to meet anticipated deliveries, Seller will not be liable therefor and may postpone the delivery date(s) under this Document for a period of time which is reasonable under all circumstances.
- Warranty; Warranty Disclaimers; Assignment of Assignable Warranties of Manufacturer; Limitation of Remedies and Liabilities. Purchaser understands that Seller does not manufacture any Goods and, accordingly, SELLER MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, CONCERNING THE GOODS WHATSOVER. SELLER DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ALL EXPRESS WARRANTIES AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. To the extent assignable, Seller shall assign to Purchaser any warranties of the manufacturer of the Goods.
Purchaser agrees that Seller’s obligation to assign, to the extent assignable, any manufacturer’s warranties with respect to the Goods is the sole remedy bargained for by Purchaser IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES. Seller’s obligations described in this Section 7 will be PURCHASER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO THE GOODS WHETHER ANY CLAIM FOR RECOVERY IS BASED UPON OR ARISES OUT OF THEORIES OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT (INCLUDING STRICT LIABILITY) OR OTHERWISE. IN NO EVENT WILL SELLER BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
- Inspections and Acceptance/Claims. Each delivery of Goods will be inspected promptly by Purchaser for damage and defects. PURCHASER WILL NOTIFY SELLER OF ALL CLAIMED DAMAGE OR DEFECTS WITHIN [TEN (10) DAYS] OF PURCHASER’S RECEIPT OF THE GOODS. If Purchaser fails to so inspect or notify Seller, Purchaser will be deemed to have accepted the Goods and to have waived any damage or defect or claim therefor. If Purchaser inspects the Goods and notifies Seller within such period of its claim that the Goods are damaged or defective, Seller will review Purchaser’s claim, and if valid, Purchaser and Seller will mutually agree on the timing of curing such damage or defect. Any remedy of Purchaser against Seller shall be barred unless notice is given in accordance with the foregoing provision.
- California Proposition 65. California Proposition 65 (“Prop 65”) mandates notices and/or warning labels (“Warning Labels”) for consumer products sold in California that contain certain chemicals (“Prop 65 Material”). Seller relies on its suppliers regarding the presence of any Prop 65 Material in the Goods, and makes no representations or warranties regarding the information provided by the suppliers. In order that Seller and Purchaser may be in compliance with Prop 65, Purchaser represents, warrants and covenants:
- Purchaser acknowledges that it will ensure that it and its non-retail customers fully comply with Prop 65.
- If Seller receives notice and/or Warning Labels from its suppliers regarding Prop 65 Material, it will provide those notice and Warning Labels to Purchaser.
- Purchaser will not directly or indirectly sell in California, or place in commerce for sale in California on a retail-basis, Prop 65 Material if the attached Warning Labels have been removed, tampered with or obscured in any way.
- Purchaser will immediately notify Seller (via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org) if it receives a notice that it is accused of selling any Prop 65 Material in violation of Prop 65. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that Seller does not have a legal duty to respond to the notice.
- Purchaser will indemnify and hold harmless Seller for all damages, costs and penalties, including legal expenses and attorneys’ fees, and/or any action brought by or against Seller relating to Purchaser’s actions or omissions under this Section.

- Information Regarding the Goods. Purchaser acknowledges that it has received and is familiar with Seller’s and any other manufacturer’s labeling and literature concerning the Goods and will forward such information to its employees, agents, customers.

Seller’s rights to cancel or terminate may be exercised by Seller without liability.
- Representation by Agent or Representatives. The terms of this Document will govern the liability and obligations of Seller in regard to the sale of Goods, whether the sale was procured directly by Seller or indirectly through an authorized sales representative. No agent, employee or representative of Seller has any authority to bind Seller to any additional or contrary terms. Unless a term is specifically included within this Document or is in writing signed by an executive officer of Seller, it will not be enforceable by Purchaser or by any person claiming by or through Purchaser.
- Confidentiality. Purchaser will not disclose or otherwise disseminate, directly or indirectly, any of the terms of this Document or any other information of Seller given to or received by Purchaser or its associates or agents, unless Purchaser received Seller’s written permission or such information is required to be disclosed by law or becomes part of the public domain through no fault of Purchaser, its associates or agents.
- Miscellaneous. Orders entered on Seller’s books cannot be canceled or deferred except with Seller’s written consent and upon terms that will indemnify Seller against loss. If any of the provisions of this Document are deemed invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will in no way be affected or impaired thereby. This Document and the contractual relationship between Seller and Purchaser shall be governed by and construed under the internal laws of the State of Ohio (without regard to Ohio conflicts of law principles). No right or interest in the contract arising from this Document may be assigned by Purchaser and no delegation of any obligation owed by Purchaser may be made without the prior written permission of Seller. The rights and remedies of Seller herein will be cumulative and additional to any other or further rights and remedies provided in law or equity. Waiver by Seller or Purchaser’s performance, or inaction with respect to Purchaser’s breach of any provision of this Document, or failure of Seller to enforce any provision of this Document (including, without limitation, the imposition of any finance charge), will not be deemed a waiver of future compliance therewith or a course of performance modifying such provision, and such provision will remain in full force and effect as written.
