Products sold by seller are designed and intended to be used at high pressures and speeds, and may be dangerous if operated improperly or without the use of appropriate safety devices and guards. Buyer is cautioned to carefully read and understand these terms and conditions, as they have important legal consequences.
Acceptance of Terms and Conditions
Receipt of these Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Terms and Conditions”) shall operate as the acceptance by StoneAge, Inc. (“Seller”) of the order submitted by the purchaser (“Buyer”). Such acceptance is made expressly conditional on assent by Buyer to these Terms and Conditions. Such assent shall be deemed to have been given unless written notice of objection to any of these Terms and Conditions (including inconsistencies between Buyer’s purchase order and this acceptance) is given by Buyer to Seller promptly on receipt hereof.
Seller desires to provide Buyer with prompt and efficient service. However, to individually negotiate the terms of each sales contract would substantially impair Seller’s ability to provide such service. Accordingly, the product(s) furnished by Seller are sold only according to the terms and conditions stated herein and with the terms and conditions stated in any effective StoneAge Dealer Agreement or StoneAge Reseller Agreement, if applicable. Notwithstanding any terms and conditions on Buyer’s order, Seller’s performance of any contract is expressly made conditional on Buyer’s agreement to these Terms and Conditions unless otherwise specifically agreed to in writing by Seller. In the absence of such agreement, commencement of performance, shipment and/or delivery shall be for Buyer’s convenience only and shall not be deemed or construed to be an acceptance of Buyer’s terms and conditions.
Unless other arrangements have been made in writing between Seller and Buyer, payment for the product(s) shall be made upon receipt of invoice. The prices shown on the face hereof are those currently in effect. Prices invoiced shall be per pricelist in effect at the time of shipment. Prices are subject to increase for inclusion of any and all taxes which are applicable and which arise from the sale, delivery or use of the product(s), and the collection of which Seller is or may be responsible to provide to any governmental authority, unless acceptable exemption certificates are provided by Buyer in accordance with applicable law. Buyer shall pay all charges for transportation and delivery and all excise, order, occupation, use or similar taxes, duties, levies, charges or surcharges applicable to the product(s) being purchased, whether now in effect or hereafter imposed by any governmental authority, foreign or domestic.
SELLER MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS AS TO THE PERFORMANCE OF ANY PRODUCT EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THE STONEAGE LIMITED WARRANTY PROVIDED WITH THE PRODUCT.
Seller is not obligated to make delivery by a specified date, but will always use its best efforts to make delivery within the time requested. The proposed shipment date is an estimate. Seller will notify Buyer promptly of any material delay and will specify the revised delivery date as soon as practicable. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SELLER HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR LOSS OF USE OR FOR ANY DIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM DELAY REGARDLESS OF THE REASON(S).
All product(s) will be shipped F.O.B. point of origin, unless specifically agreed otherwise, and Buyer shall pay all shipping costs and insurance costs from that point. Seller, in its sole discretion, will determine and arrange the means and manner of transportation of the product(s). Buyer shall bear all risk of loss commencing with the shipment or distribution of the product(s) from Seller’s warehouse. Order shortages or errors must be reported within fifteen (15) business days from receipt of shipment to secure adjustment. No product(s) may be returned without securing written approval from Seller.
These Terms and Conditions are intended by Seller and Buyer to constitute a final, complete and exclusive expression of agreement relating to the subject matter hereof and cannot be supplemented or amended without Seller’s prior written approval.
Seller’s waiver of any breach or Seller’s failure to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions at any time, shall not in any way affect, limit or waive Seller’s right thereafter to enforce and compel strict compliance with every term and condition hereof.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the other portions hereof.
Seller and Buyer shall attempt in good faith to promptly resolve any dispute arising under these Terms and Conditions by negotiations between representatives who have authority to settle the controversy. If unsuccessful, Seller and Buyer shall further attempt in good faith to settle the dispute by nonbinding third-party mediation, with fees and expenses of such mediation apportioned equally to each side. Any dispute not so resolved by negotiation or mediation may then be submitted to a court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with the terms hereof. These procedures are the exclusive procedures for the resolution of all such disputes between the Seller and Buyer.
All sales, agreements for sale, offers to sell, proposals, acknowledgments and contracts of sale, including, but not limited to, purchase orders accepted by Seller, shall be considered a contract under the laws of the State of Colorado and the rights and duties of all persons, and the construction and effect of all provisions hereof shall be governed by and construed according to the laws of such state.
Jurisdiction and Venue
Seller and Buyer agree that the state or federal courts located within the City and County of Denver, Colorado shall have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any litigation concerning any dispute arising under these Terms and Conditions not otherwise resolved pursuant to Section 9 as well as any alleged defects of any Products or damages sustained as a result of such alleged defects. Seller and Buyer further agree that should any litigation be commenced in connection with such a dispute, it shall only be commenced in such courts. Seller and Buyer agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts and neither will raise any objection to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts, including as a result of inconvenience.
If any litigation is commenced between Seller and Buyer, or their personal representatives, concerning any provision hereof, the party prevailing in the litigation shall be entitled, in addition to such other relief that is granted, to a reasonable sum as and for their attorneys’ fees and costs in such litigation or mediation.
