Seller agrees to manufacture and sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser agrees to purchase from Seller, the quantity of Products, at the prices and at the delivery dates stated in Seller’s Quote.

The price for Products is subject to modification for fluctuations in raw material or third party costs to Seller, as provided for in this Agreement.

Absent a contrary provision stated in the Quote, during the term of this Agreement, Seller may increase the cost of the Products charged to Purchaser based upon any documented third party cost increases associated with manufacturing Products (i.e. any costs Seller pays to third parties directly associated with manufacturing the Products other than internal labor and general overhead costs) that are incurred subsequent to issuance of the Quote. Absent a contrary provision stated in the Quote, during the term of this Agreement, Seller shall decrease the cost of the Products charged to Purchaser based upon any documented third party cost decreases associated with manufacturing Products (i.e. any costs Seller pays to third parties directly associated with manufacturing the Products other than internal labor and general overhead costs) that are realized subsequent to issuance of the Quote. Seller shall reflect all raw material and other price increases or decreases, as the case may be, on its invoices.

Further amendments or modifications may only be made in writing, and must be signed by an authorized representative of each Party. No waiver of the breach of any term or condition of this Agreement shall be deemed to constitute the waiver of any other breach of the same or any other term or condition.

Seller warrants to Purchaser that (1) the Products will be free from defects in workmanship and materials, and will conform to the Specifications, and (2) Seller will transfer to Purchaser ownership and good title to Products, free of all liens, encumbrances, and rights of third parties (except those created by Purchaser), upon payment in full to Seller.

THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE THE SOLE WARRANTIES AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARRISING BY LAW OR CUSTOM, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.

Except as otherwise specifically provided in the Contract, Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy for Products that do not conform to the warranties provided for herein will be to reject the non-conforming Products, and to require Seller, at Seller’s option and expense (including applicable shipping costs), to either repair or replace the non-conforming Products. Purchaser shall give Seller timely written notice of its claim that Products are allegedly non-conforming, together with such reasonable documentation as Seller may request in order to ascertain the legitimacy of Purchaser’s claim. Seller shall give Purchaser written notice of the extent to which it is recognizing the validity of such claim. Seller shall give Purchaser a written return merchandise authorization (“RMA”) for all allowed claims To the full extent possible, Purchaser will provide Seller with access to any available warranty data related to the Products and any available field-returned Products. Purchaser will also provide Seller with an opportunity to participate in any root cause analysis performed by Purchaser concerning the Products. Seller shall not be liable for money damages, consequential damages, Purchaser’s internal costs, or any other claims associated with allegedly non-conforming Products.

With the exception of Seller’s obligation to repair or replace non-conforming Products as provided for in this Agreement, Seller shall have no liability for claims arising out of the sale of Products to Purchaser and/or the performance of its obligations under this Agreement. Purchaser will and does hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Seller harmless from and against all third-party claims or demands for injury or death to persons, property damage, economic loss, and any resulting damages, losses, costs, and expenses (including reasonable legal fees), regardless of whether the claim or demand arises under tort, contract, strict liability, or other legal theories, if and to the extent caused by the Products, or Seller’s acts or omissions in its performance under the Contract. This indemnification obligation on the part of Purchaser specifically applies to the extent that the claim, injury, loss, or damage results from (1) Purchaser’s Specifications, (2) Purchaser’s design of the Products, (3) any alteration, or installation of the Products by anyone other than Seller, or (4) integration or interaction of the Products with systems or components not supplied by Seller.

Both parties shall keep the terms of the Contract and the performance thereof confidential, and shall not disclose same except as may be required by subpoena or process of law, after notice to the other Party. Purchaser does not transfer to Seller any patent, trade secret, trademark, service mark, copyright, mask work, or other intellectual property right Purchaser has in information, documents, or property that Purchaser makes available to Seller under the Contract, other than the right to use Purchaser’s Specifications and related intellectual property rights to produce and supply Products to Purchaser pursuant to the Contract.

Time is of the essence. Either Party will be in “Default” under the Contract if it (1) fails to perform any obligation under the Contract and, if the non-performance can be cured, fails to cure the non-performance within 15 business days after notice from other party specifying the non-performance, (2) admits in writing its inability to pay its debts as they become due, commences a bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, or similar proceeding, or makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or (3) becomes a debtor in a bankruptcy insolvency, receivership, or similar proceeding commenced by a third party that is not dismissed within 30 days after commencement.

(a) In the event of an uncured event of Default, either non-defaulting Party may exercise the remedies provided in this Agreement or the Contract, which are cumulative and are in addition to all other rights and remedies available elsewhere by law. (b) In the event of an uncured event of Default by Seller, Purchaser may recover its actual out-of-pocket damages or costs directly caused by Seller’s breach of the Contract, but in any event incidental or consequential damages (including specifically lost profits) shall not be recoverable. Any legal action on the part of Purchaser must be brought within one (1) year of the earlier of: i) the date of delivery of the subject Products; or ii) the date of the alleged Default. (c) In the event of an uncured Default by Purchaser, Seller may recover from Purchaser all damages recoverable at law including but not limited to any or all of the following: (1) its actual out-of-pocket damages or costs directly caused by Purchaser’s breach of the Contract; (2) the sums owed for Products delivered to Purchaser but not paid for; (3) the cost of finished Products not yet shipped to Purchaser; (4) forty-five percent (45%) of the aggregate amount of monies that Purchaser would have paid Seller for Products scheduled to be sold and delivered under the Contract after the date of Purchaser’s Default (Purchaser acknowledges that the actual damages sustained by Seller resulting from Purchaser’s breach of the Contract are not readily calculable and that this liquidated damages amount is fair and reasonable); and (5) Seller’s reasonable legal and litigation expenses. (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary stated herein, in the event that Purchaser is in Default for failure to timely pay Seller for Products sold and delivered to Purchaser, Seller may withhold future scheduled shipments of Products until the arrearage is satisfied, and the suspension of delivery on the part of Seller under such circumstances shall not constitute an event of Default by Seller.

Purchaser and Seller are independent contractors, and nothing in the Contract makes either party the agent or legal representatives of the other party for any purpose. Neither Party has authority to assume or to create any obligation on behalf of the other Party.

A finding that any provision of the Contract or this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of the Contract or the Agreement.

Any notice or other communication required or permitted in the Contract must be in writing (or electronic mail communications) and will become effective on the date of actual receipt if the date of actual receipt is a business day or on the next business day if the date of actual receipt is not a business day.
