Terms and Conditions for the following brands: Belden Tools Inc.;  “Belden” “Belden Inc.”

1. TERMS/ACCEPTANCE

 

Unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing by an authorized officer of Belden Tools, Inc., Buyer (herein so called) hereby agrees to comply with the following terms and conditions of sale ("Agreement") in connection with an order for any of the goods, materials, supplies, components, drawings, data or other property described herein (the "Products"). Shipment of Products by Belden Tools Inc., against a purchase order will not constitute acceptance of any terms or conditions set forth in such purchase order. Any additional terms and conditions proposed by Buyer in its purchase order or otherwise are hereby rejected by Belden Tools Inc., and shall not be incorporated into this Agreement. Buyer's assent to this Agreement shall be conclusively presumed from Buyer's failure to object thereto in writing as well as from Buyer's acceptance of all or part of the Products ordered. Proposals to supply equipment are valid for 30 days unless amended by Belden Tools Inc., and Buyer in writing. This Agreement represents the entire agreement of the parties and proposals, negotiations, representations or agreements made or entered into prior to or contemporaneously with this Agreement, whether verbal or written, are excluded. If this Agreement is found to be an acknowledgment and if such acknowledgment constitutes an acceptance of an offer, such acceptance is expressly conditional upon Buyer's consent to this Agreement.

2. SHIPPING AND PRICES

 

All prices are as stated herein and specifically override any prices referenced in Buyer's purchase order. Unless otherwise stipulated, all sales are Ex-Works. Belden Tools Inc. plant of manufacture. If Buyer specifies the means of transportation or special handling, Buyer shall be responsible for all related costs. All prices and discounts represent those in effect at the time of quotation and are subject to change by Belden Tools Inc. without notice.

3. TERMS OF PAYMENT

 

Standard terms of purchase from Belden Tools Inc., are net 30 days after delivery or date of invoice, whichever occurs first. Pending the establishment of open credit, Belden Tool Inc., reserves the right to ship orders C.O.D. or C.I.A. If Buyer fails to fulfill the terms of payment, Belden Tools Inc., may defer further shipments, or at its option, cancel the unshipped balance. Buyer agrees to pay a service charge of 1.5% per month on all past due invoices, except where law requires lower maximum interest rates, in which case the service charge shall be at the maximum rate permitted by law. Buyer shall pay to Belden Tools Inc., in addition to the purchase price, the amount of all sales, use, excise, or other taxes, which Belden Tools Inc., is required to pay in connection with furnishing Products to Buyer.

4. RISK OF LOSS/ACCEPTANCE

 

Buyer will assume the risk of loss of Products upon Belden Tools Inc.’s delivery to the carrier, at point of shipment. Acceptance shall occur, if not before, when Buyer fails to reject any Products in writing within seven (7) days after delivery of the Products. Buyer may rightfully reject only where a reasonable inspection shows that the Products fail to conform substantially to Belden Tool Inc.’s specifications. Buyer waives its right to revoke acceptance. Title will pass upon full payment of all obligations of the Buyer for the Products.

5. DELIVERY

 

Shipping dates are approximate, and while good faith efforts will be made to maintain delivery schedules, Belden Tools Inc. will not be responsible for any delay or damage arising there-from. It is agreed that time is not of the essence.

6. CANCELLATION

 

Orders shall not be subject to cancellation or modification, either in whole or in part, without Belden Tools Inc.’s advance written consent. Buyer will contact customer service with any such requests. In the event Belden Tools Inc. approves a cancellation or modification, Buyer will reimburse Belden Tools Inc. for all applicable costs incurred in connection therewith, including a reasonable allowance for profit. Unless otherwise approved in writing by Belden Tools Inc., orders for special Products (as determined by Belden Tools Inc.) may not be cancelled or modified under any circumstances. If a cancellation or modification of a Product is approved, prorated charges, as determined by Belden Tool Inc., will be assessed. The prorated charge will not exceed 80% of net price(s).

7. RETURNED GOODS

 

Written approval from Belden Tools Inc. must be obtained before returning Products for credit. Products returned for credit must be sent by prepaid transportation. In the event Belden Tools Inc. manufactured products are returned, a minimum restocking and handling charge of 20% of the net purchase price will be assessed, plus costs for return freight. Special Products are not returnable.

8. WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER

(a)

Belden Tools Inc. warrants to each original Buyer of Products manufactured by Belden Tools Inc. that such Products are free of material and workmanship defects for a period of 1 year from the date of shipment.

(claims on items not manufactured by Belden Tools Inc. should be directed directly to the manufacturer thereof). To validate the warranty, Buyer must furnish Proof of Purchase with shipment date. Belden Tools Inc.’s warranty with respect to Products manufactured by it is limited to the repair or replacement, as Belden Tools Inc. may elect, of any defective part. In addition, Buyer must give Belden Tools Inc., written notice of such defect within 5 days of its discovery. Installation and transportation costs are not included. Belden Tools Inc. shall have the option of requiring the return of the defective material, transportation prepaid, for inspection.

IN NO EVENT SHALL BELDEN TOOLS INC.  BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, (REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST PROFITS OR OPPORTUNITIES, DOWNTIME OF MANUFACTURING PLANTS OR MACHINERY, LOSS OF GOODWILL, ETC.; NOR SHALL BELDEN TOOLS INC.’S LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIMS OR DAMAGE ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE MANUFACTURE, SALE, DELIVERY OR USE OF THE PRODUCTS OR PARTS EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF SUCH PRODUCTS OR PARTS. THIS LIMITATION ON BELDEN TOOLS INC.'S LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO ANY LIABILITY FOR DEFAULT UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCTS OR PARTS DELIVERED HEREUNDER, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, LATE DELIVERY, FAILURE OF DELIVERY, OR OTHERWISE.
