Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale
These terms and conditions govern the sale of Products(“Product or Products”) and provisions of services (“Services”) by Zymbit Inc and its affiliates (“Seller”) as well as by third party vendors and/or service providers of Seller. These terms and conditions (“Agreement”) take precedence over Buyer’s supplemental or conflicting terms and conditions to which notice of objection is hereby given. Neither Seller’s commencement of performance or delivery shall be deemed or construed as acceptance of Buyer’s supplemental or conflicting terms and conditions. Zymbit’s failure to object to conflicting or additional terms will not change or add to the terms of this agreement. Buyer’s acceptance of the Products and/or Services from Seller shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of the terms and conditions contained herein. Seller is predominantly a business to business supplier. By ordering, the Buyer confirms that they are qualified professional who wish to obtain the Products for the purposes of its business and not as a consumer.
All orders placed by Buyer are subject to acceptance by Seller. All orders are non-cancelable, non- returnable (“NCNR”) Orders and may not be cancelled or rescheduled without Seller’s written consent. All orders must identify the products, unit quantities, part numbers, applicable prices and requested delivery dates of the Products being purchased. Unless otherwise agreed, Seller may in its sole discretion allocate Product among its Customers. The sale of such Products shall be subject to any special terms and conditions contained in Seller’s Order Acknowledgement, which shall prevail and supersede any inconsistent terms and conditions contained herein or elsewhere.
2. Taxes & Duties
Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Seller, all prices quoted are Ex-works California USA and are exclusive of transportation and insurance costs, duties, and all taxes including federal, state and local sales, excise and value added, goods and services taxes, and any other taxes. Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold Seller harmless for any liability for tax in connection with the sale, as well as the collection or withholding thereof, including penalties and interest thereon. When applicable, transportation and taxes shall appear as separate items on Seller’s invoice.
Payment may be made by wire transfer, credit card or PayPal with all fees borne by the Buyer, unless agreed otherwise. Where Seller has extended credit to Buyer, terms of payment shall be net thirty (30) days from date of invoice, without offset or deduction unless otherwise noted. On any past due invoice, Seller may impose interest at the rate of two percent (2%) per month. If Buyer fails to make each payment when it is due, Seller reserves the right to change or withdraw credit and thereby suspend or cancel performance under any or all purchase orders or agreements in which Seller has extended credit to Buyer. In the event of default by Buyer, Seller shall be entitled to costs, fees, and expenses, including but not limited to recovery of attorney fees, court costs and fees, and collections costs.
Except as specifically set forth in this Section, Buyer may not cancel, reduce or reschedule any purchase order, and Buyer is liable for the entire Purchase Price of any and all purchase orders. Any cancellation of purchase orders for Products is subject to a charge one hundred (100%) of the total Purchase Price for such Products. In the event of any cancellation, Buyer shall have no rights in partially completed products.
5. Delivery and Title
All sales will be made Ex Works place of shipment. Title and risk of loss pass to the Buyer upon delivery of the Product to the carrier. Seller’s delivery dates are estimates only and Seller is not liable for delays in delivery or for failure to perform due to causes beyond the reasonable control of the Seller, nor shall the carrier be deemed an agent of the Seller. A delayed delivery of any part of an Order does not entitle Buyer to cancel any delivery.
Seller may at any time, without incurring any liability to Buyer with respect to any previously placed purchase order, modify the specifications of Products sold by Seller and substitute Product units manufactured to such modified specifications, provided such modifications will not materially affect overall product form, fit or function.
7. Limited Warranty

Such Warranty Period cannot be changed, altered, amended or extended without a formal written amendment signed by both parties’ authorized executives. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller makes no warranty for Product defects or non-conformities that in Seller’s reasonable opinion arise, in whole or in part, from: (i) use of any Product in an application for which it was not intended; (ii) misuse, abuse, improper handling, neglect, unusual physical, electrical or optical stress, improper installation, repair, testing, or any other cause beyond normal usage; (iii) the combination of any Product with any product not furnished or prescribed by Seller; (iv) any modification of any Product by a party other than Seller; (v) accident, fire or other hazard; or (vi) designs, specifications or other information or materials furnished to Seller by Buyer.

Buyer shall give Seller written notice within 30 days of any alleged nonconformance with the limited warranty under Section 7 and shall provide Seller with all the necessary information and materials for Seller to diagnose and correct the problem.
