Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, all sales are subject to the following terms and conditions:

 

GENERAL

Radiation Products Design, Inc. (“RPDinc”) hereby offers for sale to the buyer on the express condition that the buyer agrees to accept and be bound by the terms and conditions set forth herein. Any provisions contained in any document issued by the buyer are expressly rejected and if the terms and conditions in this Agreement differ from the terms of the buyer’s offer, this document shall be construed as a counter offer and shall not be effective as an acceptance of the buyer’s document. The buyer’s receipt of products provided will constitute the buyer’s acceptance of this Agreement. This is the complete and exclusive statement of the contract between RPDinc and the buyer with respect to the buyer’s purchase of the products. No waiver, consent, modification, amendment or change of the terms contained herein shall be binding unless in writing and signed by RPDinc and the buyer. RPDinc’s failure to object to terms contained in any subsequent communication from the buyer will not be a waiver or modification of the terms set forth herein.

 

PRICE

All prices published by RPDinc or quoted by RPDinc’s representatives may be changed at any time without notice. All prices quoted by RPDinc or RPDinc’s representatives are valid for thirty (30) days, unless otherwise stated in writing. All prices for the products will be as specified by RPDinc or, if no price has been specified or quoted, will be RPDinc’s price in effect at the time of shipment. All prices are subject to adjustment on account of specifications, quantities, raw materials, cost of production, shipment arrangements or other terms or conditions which are not part of RPDinc’s original price quotation.

 

TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES

Prices for the products exclude all sales, value added and other taxes and duties imposed with respect to the sale, delivery, or use of any products covered hereby, all of which taxes and duties must be paid by the buyer. If the buyer claims any exemption, the buyer must provide a valid, signed certificate or letter of exemption for each respective jurisdiction.

 

TERMS OF PAYMENT

RPDinc may invoice the buyer upon shipment for the price and all other charges payable by the buyer in accordance with the terms on the sales order, quote or pro-forma invoice. If no payment terms are stated on the sales order, quote or pro-forma invoice, payment shall be net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice.

RPDinc reserves the right to require from the buyer full or partial payment in advance, or other security that is satisfactory to RPDinc, at any time that RPDinc believes in good faith that the buyer’s financial condition does not justify the terms of payment specified. All payments shall be made in U.S. Dollars.

All shipping dates are approximate only, and RPDinc will not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from any delay in delivery or failure to deliver which is due to any cause beyond RPDinc’s reasonable control. In the event of a delay due to any cause beyond RPDinc’s reasonable control, RPDinc reserves the right to terminate the order or to reschedule the shipment within a reasonable period of time, and the buyer will not be entitled to refuse delivery or otherwise be relieved of any obligations as the result of such delay. Products as to which delivery is delayed due to any cause within the buyer’s control may be placed in storage by RPDinc at the buyer’s risk and expense and for the buyer’s account. Orders in process may be canceled only with RPDinc’s written consent and upon payment of RPDinc’s cancellation charges.

WARRANTY

RPDinc warrants that the products will operate or perform substantially in conformance with RPDinc’s published specifications and be free from defects in material and workmanship, when subjected to normal, proper and intended usage by properly trained personnel, for one year from date of shipment. RPDinc agrees during the Warranty Period, to repair or replace, at RPDinc’s option, defective products so as to cause the same to operate in substantial conformance with said published specifications; provided that the buyer shall (a) promptly notify RPDinc in writing upon the discovery of any defect, which notice shall include the product model and serial number (if  applicable) and details of the warranty claim; and (b) after RPDinc’s review, RPDinc will provide the buyer with service data and/or a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) number, then, if applicable, the buyer may return the defective products to RPDinc with all costs prepaid by the buyer. Replacement parts may be new or refurbished, at the election of RPDinc. All replaced parts shall become the property of RPDinc. Shipment to the buyer of repaired or replacement products shall be made in accordance with the delivery provisions of  RPDinc’s Terms and Conditions of Sale. Consumables are expressly excluded from this warranty.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, products supplied by RPDinc that are obtained by RPDinc from an original manufacturer or third party supplier are not warranted by RPDinc, but RPDinc agrees to assign to the buyer any warranty rights in such product that RPDinc may have from the original manufacturer or third party supplier, to the extent such assignment is allowed by such original manufacturer or third party supplier.

In no event shall RPDinc have any obligation to make repairs, replacements or corrections required, in whole or in part, as the result of (i) normal wear and tear, (ii) accident, disaster or event of force majeure, (iii) misuse, fault or negligence of or by the buyer, (iv) use of the products in a manner for which they were not designed, (v) causes external to the products such as, but not limited to, power failure or electrical power surges, (vi) improper storage and handling of the products or (vii) use of the products in combination with equipment or software not supplied by RPDinc. If RPDinc determines that products for which the buyer has requested warranty services are not covered by the warranty hereunder, the buyer shall pay or reimburse RPDinc for all costs of investigating and responding to such request at RPDinc’s then prevailing time and materials rates. If RPDinc provides repair services or replacement parts that are not covered by this warranty, the buyer shall pay RPDinc therefore at RPDinc’s then prevailing time and materials rates. Any installation, maintenance, repair, service, relocation or alteration to or of, or other tampering with, the products performed by any person or entity other than RPDinc without RPDinc’s prior written approval, or any use of replacement parts not supplied by RPDinc, shall immediately void and cancel all warranties with respect to the affected products.

The obligations created by this warranty statement to repair or replace a defective product shall be the sole remedy of the buyer in the event of a defective product. Except as expressly provided in this warranty statement, RPDinc disclaims all other warranties, whether express or implied, oral or written, with respect to the products, including without limitation all implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose.
