Terms and Conditions of Sale (United States)
Reliaguard Inc. (“Seller”) hereby agrees to sell to you (“Buyer”), and Buyer hereby agrees to purchase, the goods and\or services (collectively referred to as the “Goods”) described in the attached quote or Buyer’s Purchase Order, if attached and signed by Seller, (either the “Order”) under these terms and conditions and in consideration of the mutual covenants herein contained, and other good and valuable consideration. “Party” means either Buyer or Seller and “Parties” means both Buyer and Seller. “Agreement” means these Terms and Conditions of Sale and any Orders, which are hereby incorporated into these Terms and Conditions by this reference. In the event of a conflict between documents, the conflict shall be resolved according to the following descending order of precedence: these Terms and Conditions of Sale, any quote, and any Buyer’s Purchase Order. Further, where a Buyer issues a purchase order or other initiating document, which contains its own terms and conditions which differ from the Seller’s terms and conditions contained herein, the terms and conditions contained herein, provided by the Seller shall prevail.
Buyer’s execution of the Order or taking delivery of any part of the Goods shall constitute acceptance of these terms and conditions contained herein. Seller expressly rejects any terms and conditions submitted by Buyer that are inconsistent with or in addition to these terms and conditions, and such added or inconsistent terms shall have no force or effect. Seller’s agreement to provide the Goods is expressly conditioned upon Buyer’s acceptance of these terms and conditions. No waiver or alteration of, or addition to these terms and conditions shall be binding unless expressly agreed to in writing by an officer of Seller.
The terms of payment are cash in United States dollars within 30 days of delivery to the Buyer. If applicable, delivery shall be Ex Works (EXW) Seller’s premises (as defined by INCOTERMS 2010). Seller will arrange for delivery of Goods, but all risk of loss and transportation, loading and delivery expenses shall be borne by Buyer. Title to Goods shall not pass until Seller receives payment in full. All prices are exclusive of any federal, state, provincial, local or foreign taxes, duties or fees, including but not limited to Goods and Services Tax, or use or sales taxes which may now be or hereafter become applicable to this transaction, the Goods or to any services performed in connection therewith and all such taxes and fees shall be for Buyer’s account. If any tax exemption certificate provided by Buyer to Seller is not recognized by the taxing authority involved, Buyer will promptly reimburse Seller for any taxes, interest, fines and penalties that Seller is required to pay.
