These terms and conditions apply to all bids, quotations and orders for the sale of Products by Zvetco, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "Seller"), except as otherwise set forth in a written document or agreement signed by a duly authorized officer of Seller. These terms and conditions represent the sole understanding between Seller and customer (hereinafter referred to as "Buyer"), with respect to the purchase and sale of Seller's products. Any provision of Buyer's Purchase Order that is in any way inconsistent with, or in addition to these terms and conditions of sale, shall not be binding on Seller. Any Order Acknowledgment containing these terms and conditions constitutes a counter offer to Buyer. Buyer taking delivery of all or any part of Product shall constitute acceptance of these terms and conditions. Seller's failure to object to provisions contained in any communication from Buyer shall not be a waiver of these terms and conditions.
The following terms used herein are defined as follows:
(A) "Products" include Application Specific Standard Products, Custom or Semicustom Products, Prototype or Pre-production Units and Development Kits and Evaluation Units.
(B) "Application Specific Standard Products" (hereinafter referred to as "Standard Products") are those Products manufactured to Seller's specifications and intended for use in a specific application but available for sale to all customers. Seller's fingerprint sensor chips fall within this category of Product.
(C) "Custom" or "Semicustom Products" are those Products manufactured in whole or in part to a specific customer's specifications and identified by a distinctive custom part number.
(D) "Prototype or Pre-Production Units" are sample sensor chips provided as engineering evaluation units which have not been fully qualified and/or manufactured in production quantities, have not been commercially introduced/released, and do not come with a Product warranty.
(E) "Development Kits and Engineering Evaluation Units" are those Products sold for the purpose of customer application software and hardware development and engineering evaluation.
(F) "Order Acknowledgement" is the form and procedure that the Seller uses to officially accept contractual commitments from Buyers.
(A) Purchase Order - Buyer is required to provide a Purchase Order or contract, in either written or
electronic form, to include as a minimum, Product part number or technical
description/specification, quantity, price, requested delivery date, billing and shipping
information. Seller shall accept verbal orders (at Seller's discretion) but Seller must receive
Buyer's confirming order prior to order shipment and in no case later than thirty (30) days after
placement of a verbal order. The Seller's Order Acknowledgement completes the written
agreement between the parties.
(B) Billing - Subject to the provisions of sub-paragraph (C) below, all billings for Products will be at Seller's established prices and/or as negotiated with Buyer and set forth in Buyer's Purchase Order and Seller's Order Acknowledgement.
(C) Order Scheduling and Pricing - Orders may be placed for shipment over a period of up to 12 months from the date of order receipt. Prices are set and agreed to between Buyer and Seller based on Buyer's commitment to accept the full delivery quantity purchased within this 12- month time period. In the event Buyer's Purchase Order is cancelled, or if for any reason, Buyer fails to accept complete delivery, Seller reserves the right to "bill back to Buyer" for the price difference between the original Purchase Order agreed-to volume and the actual volume.
(D) Seller reserves the right to reject any revision to an existing open Purchase Order when, in its opinion, any such revision substantially alters the scope of the original order.
(E) Taxes - Unless otherwise specified or required by law, all prices will be quoted and billed exclusive of federal, state and local excise, sales and similar taxes. Such taxes, when applicable, will be billed as separate, additional items on Seller's invoices, unless the Buyer provides Seller with a properly executed tax exemption certificate.
Minimum order and shipping release quantities are defined by product-specific minimum line quantities (MLQs) as stated in the Seller's quote. Orders for less than MLQ (or multiple thereof) will be automatically increased to meet minimum/multiple requirements. Exceptions to the MLQ requirement must be specifically negotiated between Buyer and Seller.
(A) All sales are Ex Works (EXW) Seller's designated shipping point.
(B) Seller reserves the right to make deliveries in installments. Partial shipments will be billed as made and payments therefore are subject to the terms of payment noted below. All delivery indications are estimated and are dependent in part upon prompt receipt of all necessary information from the Buyer to service an order.
(C) Seller reserves the right to allocate inventories and production when such allocation becomes necessary.
(D) Title and risk of loss or damage to the Products shall pass to Buyer at the time Seller delivers possession thereof to the carrier.
(E) Any Products (whether finished or partially completed) held by Seller at Buyer's request beyond scheduled delivery date shall be at Buyer's risk.
(A) Subject to prior approval and extension of credit by Seller, Buyer shall pay the net invoiced amount in United States currency within thirty (30) days from date of Seller's invoice. Any payments or part thereof remaining unpaid after thirty (30) days shall carry interest thereon at the rate of one and one-half (1.5) percent per month (18% per annum). Payment due dates and other related payment discounts if specified on the Seller’s written formal estimate will supersede the aforementioned payment due date. Where not in disagreement with Seller estimate, all other payment terms in this Article will remain in effect.
(B) On Purchase Orders for shipment to countries other than the U.S.A., Seller may require payment be made either through direct wire transfer prior to shipment of goods, or, through the medium of a Letter of Credit (LOC) to be established by Buyer at its expense (including any bank confirmation charges). All LOCs will be in favor of and acceptable to Seller, will be maintained in sufficient amounts and for the period necessary to meet all payment obligations, will be irrevocable and issued, or confirmed, by a bank in the U.S.A. satisfactory to Seller, will permit partial deliveries and will provide for pro rata payments upon presentation of Seller's invoices and Seller's certificates of delivery Ex Works (EXW) Seller's shipping point, or of delivery into storage with certification of cause therefore, and for the payment of any termination charges.
(C) At any time and from the period prior to the Delivery Date, Seller reserves the right to change any terms of credit extended to Buyer in the event Seller believes, in good faith, that there has been an adverse change in credit worthiness of Buyer and Seller requires partial or full payment in advance. In such event, if Buyer refuses to accept such change in credit terms the orders shall be canceled without liability arising there from to either party. In the event of bankruptcy or insolvency of Buyer, or in the event any proceeding is brought by or against Buyer under any bankruptcy or insolvency laws or their equivalent, Seller may cancel any outstanding order, without liability to Seller, and Seller shall receive reimbursement from Buyer for costs incurred and lost profit for product so cancelled.
