STANDARD SALES TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. ACCEPTANCE: Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, it is agreed that sales are made on the terms and conditions herein, and to the extent of any conflict, these terms and conditions shall take precedence over Buyer's terms and conditions. In the absence of written acceptance of these terms by Buyer, Buyer's giving of instructions for work or delivery or acceptance of or payment for product covered hereby constitutes an acceptance of these terms. All orders are received subject to review and acceptance in writing by Seller at 6100 S. Maple Ave. , Suite #116, Tempe, Arizona 85283 USA, hereon called "Seller's facility".
2. DELIVERY: All deliveries are FOB Seller's facility unless agreed otherwise. Delivery dates are best estimates only, are not guaranteed and do not form a term of this contract unless specific delivery dates are specified and agreed to. Delivery delay or default in any installment does not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept and pay for remaining deliveries. Claims for shipment shortage are waived unless presented to Seller in writing within forty-five (45) days of delivery of each shipment. IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE FOR INCREASED MANUFACTURING COST, LOSS IN PROFITS OR GOOD WILL OR ANY OTHER INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OR LOSSES.

of product sold hereunder shall pass to Buyer FOB the Seller's
Facility in Arizona. Seller hereby retains a security interest
and right of possession in the article until Buyer makes full payment.
4. WARRANTY: Seller warrants that any product sold or otherwise made available to Buyer hereunder which is manufactured by Seller will, at the time of shipment, be free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, will be free from defects in material and workmanship, and will conform to Seller's applicable specifications or, if appropriate, to Buyer's specifications accepted by Seller in writing. If any product supplied hereunder which is manufactured by Seller is not as warranted, Seller shall, at its option, refund the CIF cost, repair or replace the product, provided proof of purchase and written notice of non conformance are received by Seller within one (1) year from the date of delivery and provided said non-conforming product is returned FOB to a service facility designated by Seller, no later than thirty (30) days after the expiration of the warranty period.
A Non-Seller manufactured product is subject to the warranty provided by its manufacturer, if any. Seller will pass these warranties to Buyer and inform Buyer of the nonexistence of any warranty. Upon verification by Seller that the product does not conform to this warranty, Seller will reimburse Buyer for the cost of transporting the product to and from the designated service facility. This warranty does not apply to a product not in its original condition or which Seller determines has been, by Buyer or otherwise, subjected to testing for other than specified electrical characteristics, to operating and/or environmental conditions in excess of the maximum values established in applicable specifications or has been the subject of mishandling, misuse, neglect, improper testing, repair, alteration, damage, assembly or processing that alters physical or electrical properties.
THIS WARRANTY EXTENDS TO BUYER ONLY AND MAY BE INVOKED BY BUYER ONLY ON BEHALF OF ITS CUSTOMERS. SELLER SHALL NOT ACCEPT WARRANTY RETURNS DIRECTLY FROM BUYER'S CUSTOMERS OR USERS OF BUYER'S PRODUCTS. THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS OR REPRESENTATIONS WHATSOEVER, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS, ALL OF WHICH ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE IN CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE FOR ANY DAMAGES, WHETHER INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, GENERAL, SPECIAL OR OTHER, OR FOR ANY OTHER REMEDY ARISING FROM ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, EXPENSE OR INJURY SUSTAINED FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SALE, INSTALLATION, USE OR FAILURE OF THE PRODUCT SOLD OR ANY DEFECT THEREIN OR FROM ANY OTHER CAUSE.

Documents to be payable when items are picked up by common carrier and consigned to Buyer or Buyer's agent.
If shipments are made in installments, each installment is separately invoiced and paid for when due without regard to other shipments. Seller reserves the right at any time to revoke credit extended to Buyer, because of Buyer s failure to pay for products when due or for any other reason deemed good and sufficient by Seller, and in such event, all subsequent shipments shall be paid for by Letter of Credit. All orders are accepted based on a Proforma Invoice.
