This quotation for products is for immediate acceptance and is subject to change by Pfaltz & Bauer, Inc. ("Seller") without notice. Quotations are valid for 30 days from the date of quotation. All purchase orders for products are subject to Seller's acceptance at Waterbury, Connecticut, U.S.A.
Prices quoted are exclusive of all excise and similar taxes, including, without limitation, taxes on manufacture, sales, receipts, and all costs of transportation, packaging, insurance and other costs, including export and import duties, and associated fees if applicable. All such taxes and costs will be paid directly by Buyer or added to the invoice as a separate charge and paid by Buyer. Prices are based on current costs and therefore subject to change without notice to account for changes in the cost of raw materials and other direct costs beyond Seller's control.
Seller may complete the order with a one percent (1%) over-run or under-run on the actual weight ordered unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing, and Buyer will pay for the actual weight delivered.
All packaging will be Labeled in accordance with Seller’s practices and procedures, and in compliance with all applicable governmental regulations. SELLER WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY OF ANY SPECIAL LABELING REQUESTED BY BUYER.
SHIPMENT & RISK.
All orders are freight and insurance prepaid by Buyer, Free Carrier Manufacturers Factory, Connecticut, U.S.A. Method and route of shipment are at Seller's discretion, unless Buyer supplies explicit instructions. All shipments are incurred at Buyer's expense and made at the Buyer's risk. Identification of the products to the contract shall occur, and title shall pass, upon receipt of the shipment by carrier. Seller reserves the right to deliver products in installments. Shipments made thirty (30) days after specified date of delivery, if date is so specified, shall constitute good delivery. Any delivery not in dispute shall be paid for regardless of other controversies relating to other delivered or undelivered products.
Seller will not be liable for any delay in the performance of this contract, or in the delivery or shipment of products, or for any damages suffered by Buyer by reason of such delay, when such delay is directly or indirectly caused by, or in any manner arises from, fires, floods, accidents, riots, acts of God, war or insurrection, governmental interference or embargoes (whether by regulations, priorities, rationing or otherwise), strikes, labor difficulties, shortages of labor, fuel, power, internet failure, materials or supplies, transportation delays or any other cause (whether or not similar to any of the foregoing) beyond Seller's control. Seller shall have the additional right if any of the above mentioned contingencies occur, at Seller's option, to cancel in whole or in part, this contract without any resulting liability and to allocate production and deliveries among customers.
TERMS OF PAYMENT & INTEREST.
Terms of payment are net cash thirty (30) days. All payments shall be made in U.S. dollars. Seller reserves the right to require pre-payment or payment pursuant to irrevocable letter of credit issued by a financial institution acceptable to Seller or by documentary draft if specified on the front of this quotation, prior to manufacture, preparation, and shipment of any products. Any payment terms specified on the front of this quotation supersede any inconsistent part of this section. Seller reserves the right to impose a money service charge at the rate of one and one-half percent (1 1/2%) on invoices unpaid after thirty (30) days.
Seller reserves the right to select sources of supply for raw chemicals. Seller does not guarantee the compatibility or performance of raw chemicals with any specific customers' product. Any contract is subject to Seller's ability to obtain the necessary raw chemicals.
SELLER GIVES NO WARRANTY AS TO MERCHANTABILITY OR AS TO FITNESS FOR ANY PURPOSE. The sole and exclusive warranty provided herein is that the products sold are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship as established by Seller's standards of acceptable quality. This express warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied. Buyer's remedy under this warranty is to have its account credited with the invoice amount, or at Seller's sole option to have any products which contain defects at variance with Seller's specifications replaced, provided the specific defect is reported to Seller within thirty (30) days after the date of initial shipment. Every such claim under this warranty shall be deemed waived by Buyer unless it is made in writing within said thirty (30) day period. Defective products or any other product returns may be returned to Seller only after Seller's inspection and then only upon receipt of definite instructions for said return received from Seller, i.e., the Buyer must obtain a written Returned Goods Authorization from the Seller. But Seller may order return of products without inspection. Any products returned without Seller's advance written instructions will not be received for replacement or credit. Products returned without defect which are approved for return by the Seller are subject to a 25% restocking charge.

Buyer shall notify the Seller in writing of any claim, demand or suit against Buyer brought on the ground that use or resale by Buyer, or by anyone purchasing from Buyer, of the products ordered as a result of Seller’s quotation infringes any patent, trademark, copyright, tradename, license or other proprietary right of other parties. The Seller shall, at its option, have the right to take control of and defend such claim, demand or suit at Buyer's expense, to approve counsel and to hire its own counsel at Buyer's expense to participate in such negotiation or litigation.
Any designs, sketches, formulae, proofs, software, computer code, or other intellectual property, originated by Seller are submitted in confidence and will not be disclosed by Buyer to any third party.
